ApplyCentral Terms of Service

Last updated: December 15, 2021

1. Interpretation

These ApplyCentral Terms of Service supplement, and must be interpreted consistently with, the general Terms of Use for The City of Calgary's website (the “General Terms of Use”), found at the bottom of each web page. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of a conflict between the ApplyCentral Terms of Service and the General Terms of Use, the provisions of the ApplyCentral Terms of Service will prevail.

2. Accuracy of Information Submitted

You acknowledge and agree that your electronic submission of information to The City of Calgary ("The City") using this Online Application is true and accurate and is intended to be your application to The City.

3. Consent to Electronic Decision

You agree that The City can issue its formal decision to you in electronic form (e.g. electronic mail) to the email address provided through the Online Application. If your email address changes you will advise The City of the new email address or provide a mailing address for the formal approval.

4. Electronic Submission

Except as may otherwise be required by The City, you must only submit, provide and accept information or records related to your application in electronic form and you will not re-submit your application in paper form. The City does not guarantee that the entire electronic application process will be completed electronically, and The City reserves the right in its sole discretion to require you to submit information and records relating to your application in paper form.

5. Complete Application

The changes or additional terms are effective immediately upon being posted to the ApplyCentral Terms of Service. Your use of ApplyCentral will be subject to the ApplyCentral Terms of Service posted on ApplyCentral at the time of use. In the event any of the provisions of the ApplyCentral Terms of Service are determined to be invalid, void, or unenforceable for any reason, that provision will be deemed to be severable and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining conditions of the ApplyCentral Terms of Service. You may be asked to agree to separate terms of use for other pages or applications used elsewhere on The City's website.
