  7. If you are a Provincially Funded Organization, the Provincially Funded Organization Notice also applies to your use of this web site and your access to the VOR Arrangements. For your convenience, the following is a summary of some of the terms of the Provincially Funded Organization Notice:
    • If you wish to acquire products or services from a vendor listed under a VOR Arrangement (“Vendor”), you must first enter into a separate agreement with that Vendor (“Agreement”). Ontario will not be a party to that Agreement. You are responsible for negotiating your own Agreement with the Vendor.
    • You are responsible for ensuring that you follow any and all procurement rules, regulations, obligations and processes to which you are subject.
    • By granting you access to the VOR Arrangements, Ontario is not endorsing, recommending or approving the suitability of: (i) the products and services listed; (ii) any Vendor as a supplier to you; (iii) the procurement process used to establish the VOR Arrangement as complying with the procurement rules, regulations, obligations and processes to which you are subject; (iv) the process for ordering the products or services as complying with the procurement rules, regulations, obligations and processes to which you are subject; or (v) the terms and conditions of Ontario’s agreement with its Vendors as a basis for your Agreement. You are responsible for conducting your own independent assessment.
    • You shall be responsible for obtaining your own professional advice, including your own independent legal advice.
    • Ontario does not guarantee the quality, value or volume of products and services that may be made available to you from Vendors.
    • You shall be responsible for your own contract administration and all matters related to doing business with any Vendor and shall not direct any Vendor service issues that may arise to Ontario;
    • You agree not to bring any claims against Ontario in relation to any VOR Arrangement or any resulting relationship you have with any Vendor(s).
  8. Ontario/VOR vendors may contact you regarding our VOR arrangements.

The Provincially Funded Organization Notice applies over this summary to the extent there is a difference between them.
