Copyright material from other sources.

The Creative Commons license which original Zulu Waterways content is licensed under does not void existing copyright. This means that some of the material on Zulu Waterways will have a seperate copyright and does not fall under the same license. Efforts will be made to show when this is the case but it is the responsibility of the reuser of the material to check if the information contains any existing copyright restrictions.

Copyright infringement.

Efforts are made to monitor new content added to Zulu Waterways by the public to ensure that it doesn’t violate the copyright of the original author. If you are an author who feels your copyright has been infringed on you can contact us at legal@zuluwaterways.com and we will remove any content that is found to breach copyright. As a user adding content it is your responsibility to understand copyright licenses when reusing or referencing the work of others. In most cases you are not allowed to reuse material which is under a copyright license. In other cases the author may allow their work to be shared provided that you attribute them properly. If you are unable to find the copyright license relating to particular content then it is best to not include it in your posts. The safest method is to only post content in your own words or to be sure that the copyright on the work clearly states that it can be used in such a way. The procedure will be different depending on the copyright of the original work and it is your responsibility to check first before posting.

Zulu Waterways content.

By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions it is understood by you that the information contained on Zulu Waterways is a collection of information added by users of the sites/apps as well as that referenced from a variety of third party sources. Much like wikipedia, Zulu Waterways is a collection of crowd sourced information which gets added and refined over time. Neither Zulu Waterways nor the user who contribute the information are responsible for the accuracy of the information, nor is Zulu Waterways or the user(s) who contributed the information liable for any damages/injury which occur based on the use of this information. While we work hard to monitor new information and confirm its accuracy we make no claims that all the information on the service is accurate. This applies to information on the Zulu Waterways websites and apps as well as information originating from Zulu Waterways which is now being displayed elsewhere. If you do not understand this and accept this in full then you should not continue to use the Zulu Waterways website or apps.

User content.

Certain parts of the websites and apps offer the opportunity for users to post and exchange opinions, information, material and data in areas of the websites/Apps. Zulu Waterways is not required to screen, edit, publish or review user content prior to its appearance on the websites/apps and this content does not reflect the views or opinions of Zulu Waterways. While efforts are made to remove content which is offensive or misleading we simply can not monitor everything which is present on the sites/apps.  Systems on the sites/apps have been put in place to help validate information and remove unwanted or harmful content. If you see something which you think is offensive, clearly inaccurate or a copyright infringement you can ‘report’ the comment and we will review it.  Zulu Waterways reserves the right to monitor all content and to remove (without notice) any content which it considers inappropriate, offensive or otherwise in breach of these Terms and Conditions or the copyright of others.

Rules of Conduct.

You agree to not add content to the sites/apps which:

Zulu Waterways is a cruising guide, not a navigation program.

The Zulu Waterways websites and apps should not be relied upon for any navigational purpose, and must never be used in such a way. The imagery and map options on the websites/apps are to provide further detail to allow you to make better decisions relating to the community content, not to be used as a means of navigating your vessel. You should always refer to a current navigational chart or map to navigate.


Zulu Waterways does not use cookies of any kind. Only for eating!

The username you choose can be anything you like and does not have to be your real name. In fact, most users choose the name of their boat instead. Your password is not known to us as it’s encrypted. Your email address is used if we need to contact you regarding information you post on the service or otherwise.

Registration is only required if you wish to add, edit or comment on information or to create and view profile information.

The information we collect through google analytics tells us how many visits a particular page got, for how long the user visited the page, what time of day people visited what pages and what device type (mobile, desktop, browser type, android or ios) people were using when they visited the service. We do not collect your IP address nor any details such as name, profession or otherwise.

Anything you add to Zulu Waterways, whether that be on your profile page, in a comment to another user or in information within the contents of the map page has the potential to be viewed by anyone who uses the service. You should remain aware of this when choosing what content you wish to add. You are solely responsible for the information you choose to share in your profile section and, while you are able to remove any of your detail at any time, you should be careful with what information you make public. If you need information removed from a comment or edit you have made on the map page you can contact us and ask us to remove it or click the ‘report’ button in the comment itself..

In the case where content added to your profile page, or anywhere on the website/apps conflicts with our Rules of Conduct (see ‘Terms and Conditions’ page), we reserve the right to remove that content and/or your profile from the service without notice.

Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data collected may be shared with other Google services.

If you do not wish to receive these emails you can unsubscribe at any time and will there-after be permanently removed from the mailing list.
