Terms and Conditions
I have purchased an ACTF DVD or Digital Download file for school use. What am I allowed to do with it?
The purchase price of the digital file or DVD includes a licence to use on teacher and student devices within the school for educational purposes. The DVD, digital file or copies of the digital file (nor any part of them) may not be provided to anyone outside of the school for which the DVD or digital file was bought. You must not copy a DVD or digital file or upload a digital file or any part of it to exchanges that are shared with other schools, or to the internet.
If our school has purchased an ACTF educational DVD-ROM or Digital Curriculum Resource, are we allowed to copy it and distribute it throughout our school, including uploading it to the school’s hard drive?
The purchase price of the DVD or Digital Curriculum Resource includes a licence to upload the DVD-ROM or Digital Curriculum Resource to the school network/intranet or hard drive for educational purposes. You must not make the Educational DVD-ROM or Digital Curriculum Resource (or a copy) or any part of it available outside the school, including to other schools. You must not copy a DVD or upload a Digital Curriculum Resource or any part of it to exchanges that are shared with other schools, or to the internet.
You may make modifications to the Educational DVD-ROM or Digital Curriculum Resource’s components, such as amending a worksheet or changing the format of a clip. Any such modification remains the property of the ACTF and must be treated like an original component of the Educational DVD-ROM or Digital Curriculum Resource.
If you make hardcopy printouts of the Educational DVD-ROM or Digital Curriculum Resource , such as by printing worksheets or an image contained within the resource, all copies should be recorded and reported to the Copyright Agency Limited, just as you would report a photocopy of an article from a journal.
If I have purchased an ACTF DVD for home use, what am I allowed to do with it?
All you can do is watch it at home! You can't copy a Home-Use DVD; even for personal use; and you must not make it available to anyone outside of your home.
Can my school copy a program off-air?
Yes, provided you have a Screenrights Licence, you may copy off-air for educational purposes. This includes copying programs to keep in the library, or to show to students as part of a class. Further details can be found on the Screenrights website. Please note that Screenrights licences do not cover the copying of DVDs.
What are the payment options for schools when ordering DVDs or other resources?
You can pay by cheque, Mastercard, Visa or PayPal
Does the ACTF still sell or support the Kahootz software?
No. Kahootz is no longer supported for PC or Mac operating systems and is no longer available for sale.
Why are the ACTF’s School-Use DVDs more expensive than commercial Home-Use DVDs?
School-Use DVDs are more expensive than a Home-Use DVD as they are seen by many more people. A Home-Use DVD is only licensed for home use, not for screening in an educational institution to a larger audience. Please note that schools may not purchase Home-Use DVDs for use within schools.
If you are able to stream content as part of a digital access pass or other purchase, your ability to stream that content lasts for so long as streaming is made available by the ACTF for that content.
All our DVDs are currently encoded for region 4 DVD players only for copyright and other legal reasons.
They will, however, also play on non-region specific DVD players. These are common around the world and growing in popularity as it allows the owner to view any DVD purchased from anywhere in the world. All international purchasers should check their players for compatibility before purchasing any DVDs.
Unforeseen supply problems or unexpected demand may occasionally result in stock being unavailable. Should there be a delay in despatching your order we will contact you immediately to advise you of the reason for the delay. You may cancel such an order at any time prior to processing.
