The undersigned member of the Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE) agrees to the following Terms of Use for free use of the AWE Water Conservation Tracking Tool, Version 3.0:   

  1. The undersigned member ensures their AWE membership is current, including payment of dues.  
  2. The undersigned member agrees not to share Version 3.0 (or past versions) of the Water Conservation Tracking Tool or the User Guide with any other party.  
  3. The undersigned member agrees not to post any Tracking Tool results on any website unless converted to Adobe Portable Document Format (.pdf) file format or as an image file (e.g., .gif, .jpg, .png).  
  4. The undersigned member agrees to provide credit to the Alliance for Water Efficiency whenever the Tracking Tool results are published or presented.  
  5. The undersigned member agrees not to use the Tracking Tool for client analysis unless the client is also a current member of the Alliance for Water Efficiency in good standing. 
  6. The undersigned member agrees not to provide the Tracking Tool to a consultant or other party conducting an analysis on its behalf unless they are a current member of the Alliance for Water Efficiency in good standing.  
  7. The undersigned member agrees to release the Alliance for Water Efficiency, its officers, agents, and employees from liability for any claims or damages of any kind or description that may arise from use of the Tracking Tool.  

In return, the Alliance for Water Efficiency agrees to the following:   

  1. The Alliance agrees to provide Version 3.0 of the Tracking Tool and User Guide upon signed acceptance and receipt of these Terms of Use.  
  2. The Alliance agrees to automatically provide continuous version updates of the Tracking Tool and User Guide, provided the undersigned member’s membership status is in good standing.  
  3. The Alliance agrees to provide one (1) free hour of technical assistance to registered users of the Tracking Tool that are current members of  the Alliance for Water Efficiency. After one (1) hour, the charge for staff and consultant assistance will be $150.00 per hour.  Blocks of time may be purchased for a lower hourly rate.  

Both users and beneficiaries of the AWE Water Conservation Tracking Tool must be current members.  Using or benefitting from the AWE Water Conservation Tracking Tool as a non-member is a violation of these terms and constitutes misuse.  AWE reserves the right to enforce the membership requirement for non-members using or benefitting from the Tracking Tool in order to rectify this type of misuse. Membership requires payment of annual dues. 

Below is an example of appropriate use and an example of misuse to help you ensure you are adhering to the above terms.  The example uses a fictitious water utility named Utility XYZ and a fictitious consulting firm named Consulting Firm ABC.

Appropriate use looks like this:  Both Utility XYZ and Consulting Firm ABC are members of the Alliance for Water Efficiency.  Utility XYZ hires Consulting Firm ABC to create a water conservation plan and intends to use the AWE Water Conservation Tracking Tool.  This is appropriate use because both the user and the beneficiary are AWE members.

Unacceptable use looks like this:  Utility XYZ hires Consulting Firm ABC to create a water conservation plan and intends to use the AWE Water Conservation Tracking Tool.  Utility XYZ is a member of AWE and obtains a copy of the Tracking Tool.  Consulting Firm ABC is not a member of the Alliance for Water Efficiency.  Utility XYZ provides a copy of the Tracking Tool to Consulting Firm ABC.  This is a violation of the Terms of Use.   (It is also a violation of the Terms of Use if a consulting firm provides analysis using the Tracking Tool for a water utility that is not an AWE member.)
