iLINQ: Guidelines of Use and Privacy Policy




Last revised 23 April 2020

By selecting the “I agree to be legally bound by the Terms and Conditions of use for this website” option you agree to be bound by the following terms (Terms of Service) that apply to your use of iLINQ and any other system or service which you are authorised to access using iLINQ (Single Sign On Service). You should read and understand the Terms of Service before agreeing to be bound by them. iLINQ is designed, updated and maintained by Sheldon College to support the learning, teaching and operational needs of the College and for communication between members of the Sheldon College Community.


1.        By accessing and using the iLINQ site and services you are agreeing to comply with and be bound by these terms and conditions of use and Sheldon College’s Privacy Policy.

2.        If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions of Use, you will exit the site immediately and advise Sheldon College so that your account can be de-activated.

3.        Individual iLINQ pages may be inspected for compliance with these Terms and Conditions at any time. 

4.        Sheldon College may suspend your access to iLINQ if there are reasonable grounds for us to suspect that you have breached these Terms and Conditions, prior to us investigating the matter fully.

5.        Inappropriate use and/or violation of any of these Terms and Conditions of Use may result in the loss of privileges to use iLINQ and may also result in civil and/or criminal consequences. 

6.        Sheldon College may update these terms of use by posting the new version on the site at any time and without separate notice to you or to other users. Your continued use of this site or the services after changes to the Terms and Conditions of Use are posted constitutes your agreement to those changes from that date.


1.       Account holders (Staff, Students and Parents) are issued with account credentials for iLINQ. These credentials are used to determine which information is accessible to the account holder.

2.       You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the account credentials (user login name and password) you use to access iLINQ.

3.        You are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your account.

4.        If you select to Remember Me, you agree that any access or use of the app or access to the iLINQ system using your login credentials will be deemed as being accessed by you.

5.        Any information that you contribute to iLINQ is identifiable to your account along with the date and time of the contribution. The information will be widely accessible (i.e. available to all other iLINQ users) unless you take steps to deliberately restrict access.

6.        You must notify Sheldon College immediately if your account credentials are misused or become disclosed, so that your account can be secured and alternative credentials provided to protect the integrity of your ongoing use of the service.  

7.        You are responsible and liable for any other person using your account. These Terms and Conditions will apply to such use as if the use was made by you.

8.        In the event of a family separation or other events necessitating different access arrangements, you will inform Sheldon College at the earliest opportunity so that iLINQ and the Parent Directory can be configured appropriately.

9.        Sheldon College does not guarantee or warrant that access to iLINQ will be uninterrupted, without delay, error-free, omission-free or free of viruses.
