Alliance for the Advancement of Technology (AAT) provides ICAS standards documents subject to terms of use described in document AAT ICAS 9010. please refer to other key AAT ICAS standards documents accessible via the AAT ICAS web site at http://www.aatideas.org/icas for important information about ICAS.

ICAS terms of use

any material provided by Alliance for the Advancement of Technology and the www.aatideas.org web site is provided on an 'as is' basis. Alliance for the Advancement of Technology makes no warranties of any kind, either expressed or implied as to any matter including, but not limited to, warranty of fitness for a particular purpose or merchantability, exclusivity, or results obtained from use of the material. Alliance for the Advancement of Technology does not make any warranty of any kind with respect to freedom from patent, trademark, or copyright infringement.

AAT develops ICAS within its mission as an educational organization, placing a higher priority on principles of user-centered design for these emerging standards. AAT thus strives to develop ICAS standards in support of usable design. above all other AAT administrative objectives, the objectives for user support guide the development of ICAS and the conditions by which AAT provides AAT ICAS standards for use by others. these ICAS standards are reflected in the development of 'ICAS in use' resources as fundamental principles of administration and use. this document describes and references the terms of use by which ICAS standards may be used.

AAT administration of ICAS is carefully limited by AAT ICAS administrative objectives, and all AAT personnel are trained with reference to these guidelines and policies. AAT as an educational organization is developing ICAS documents as voluntary standards designed for a demand-based model of applicable use. these ICAS standards are reflected in the development of 'ICAS in use' and 'ICAS now' resources as fundamental principles of administration and use.

ather than for AAT staff and personnel, AAT has no authority to enforce the use of ICAS. AAT operations are only structured to determine the use of ICAS by AAT. only other persons and organizations can make a decision regarding the use of ICAS for their persons or organizations. AAT personnel are directed not to advise others regarding the use of ICAS on behalf of AAT without specific directorial approval, but to refer others to the AAT web site.

any particular use of ICAS is reserved to users, whether for development or basic use, of the ICAS system. ICAS users thus assume accountability for any consequences or liabilities arising from any particular use of ICAS. Alliance for the Advancement of Technology and its officers, staff, members, and designees are in no way responsible for any consequences or liabilities related to particular uses of ICAS. users must agree that AAT is not charged with validating the use of ICAS by other organizations and individuals, and that users are responsible for particular uses of ICAS. licensees are responsible for claims of compliance with ICAS standards and must not represent compliance as an endorsement from AAT ICAS.

ICAS licensees are strongly encouraged to consider affirmation of an applicable ICAS metrication policy, such as the AAT metrication policy (AAT ICAS 9030). the AAT metrication policy, however, concerns AAT use of ICAS, and licensees must take responsibility for their own use of ICAS. ICAS licensees are strongly encouraged to consider the use of an applicable metrication policy appropriate for the situations in which ICAS measures might be used. licensee use of ICAS metrication policies and practices must not contradict the canonical standards of ICAS for measures of dates and times, nor contradict the canonical standards of SI measures for other practical areas of measure.

compliance with ICAS and ICAS terms of use means compliance with an effective version of ICAS. information about an effective version of ICAS is indicated by ICAS version history note (AAT ICAS 1002). the version declarations of prior versions of ICAS expire when a new effective version is declared. licensee rights for prior versions expire upon the declaration of an effective version, and all registered and non-registered users or developers of AAT ICAS must update or conform to an effective version of ICAS.

AAT ICAS standards documents for the effective version are comprised of documents referenced via tables of contents arranged at the beginning of each series of standards documents. documents referenced via series tables of contents supplement these terms of use, and uses of any ICAS standards are subject to these collective terms of use. pertinent AAT ICAS standards documents are accessible via the AAT ICAS Itinica web site at http://www.aatideas.org/icas via Internet.

certain features of ICAS may not yet be fully developed or described. users should use prudent common sense in the use of ICAS for cases not addressed in AAT ICAS standards documents. as a matter of good software programming practice, new processes or applications should first be tested in a non-operational environment, so that bugs or other problems can be resolved, prior to use in an operational setting. other standards for particular situations of use or areas of practice may also apply. ICAS and its terms of use are subject to change by AAT. however as an emerging development ICAS units should also be considered as subject to future review by standards authorities for purposes of coordination with the International System of Units (SI) and other standards. AAT does not guarantee continued support of ICAS nor that any particular features of ICAS will be supported in a subsequent effective version. AAT does not provide legal advice about the use of ICAS.

the reference to particular organizations, individuals, or locales in AAT ICAS documents does not necessarily imply an endorsement or use of ICAS by particular organizations, individuals, or locales. AAT does not necessarily endorse the use of ICAS or any other standards; however encourages the applicable use of applicable chronological systems. any comments or suggestions about uses of ICAS for particular organizations, individuals, locales, or areas of commerce should be directed to the AAT ICAS department at icas@aatideas.org or via the postal address designated on the aatideas.org web site for AAT. ICAS is administered in accordance with processes for language support specified in AAT ICAS 3005.
