Intellogist Terms of Use - Effective April 17, 2009

By registering on the Intellogist website owned by Landon IP, Inc. (hereinafter “we”, “us”, “our”), you agree to be legally bound by the following terms. If you do not agree to be legally bound by all of the following terms, then please do not continue the registration process. We may change these terms at any time and will do our best to inform you of these changes; however, it is prudent for you to review these terms regularly as your continued usage of the Intellogist website means you agree to be legally bound by these terms even when they are updated and/or amended.

Many parts of the Intellogist website are collaboratively developed by its users using the MediaWiki software. Anyone with Internet access (and not otherwise restricted from doing so) may edit the publicly editable pages of these sites once they have logged in as a registered user. By doing this, editors create a published document, and a public record of every word added, subtracted, or changed. This is a public act, and editors are identified publicly as the author of such changes. All public contributions made to the Intellogist website, and all publicly available information about those contributions, are irrevocably licensed and may be freely copied, quoted, reused and adapted by third parties with few restrictions.

Users that register are identified by their chosen username. Your username will frequently appear publicly on the site so it is wise for you not to use your real name. Users select a password, which is confidential and used to verify the integrity of their account. Except insofar as it may be required by law, no person should disclose, or knowingly expose, either user passwords and/or cookies generated to identify a user. Once created, user accounts will not be removed. It may be possible for a username to be changed; however, we do not guarantee that a username will be changed on request.

You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, or sexually-oriented material or any other material that may violate any laws of your country or the United States (where Intellogist is hosted), or International Law. Doing so may lead to your being immediately and permanently banned, with notification to your Internet Service Provider if deemed necessary by us. We record the IP address of all submissions and posts to aid in enforcing these rules.

In registering for Intellogist, you agree that the Intellogist team has the right to remove, edit, move, or close any material you post on the Intellogist website at any time should we see fit. You also agree that any information you enter on the Intellogist website is being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your written consent, we cannot guarantee that user information will remain private. We acknowledge that, in spite of our committed effort to protect private user information, determined individuals may still develop data-mining and other methods to uncover such information and disclose it. For this reason, we can make no guarantee against unauthorized access to information provided in the course of using or contributing to the Intellogist website.

For your own security, we suggest you choose a secure password. A typical "strong" password is at least 8 characters long, contains a mix of upper and lower case letters and numbers, and is not made up mostly of dictionary words and names.

You agree and understand that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of passwords associated with any account you use to access the Intellogist website. Accordingly, you agree that you will be solely responsible to for all activities that occur on the Intellogist under your account.

Your username must not be offensive or confusing, contain words like "bot" or "script" that refer to automated editing processes, contain titles like "admin" or "sysop" that imply authority on the Intellogist website, or contain domain names or email addresses. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your password or of your account, you agree to notify us immediately by using our Contact Us form.

In addition, if you already created an account on the Intellogist website and simply wish to change your username, you can submit a request via our Contact Us form.

You agree to the use of your data in accordance with our privacy policy. Please read the privacy policy carefully as it explains how we treat your personal information, and protect your privacy, when you use the Intellogist website.

By submitting, posting or displaying Content you give Landon IP a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Intellogist website. You agree that this license includes a right for Landon IP to make such Content available to other companies, organizations or individuals. This license is for the sole purpose of enabling Landon IP to display, distribute and promote the Intellogist website.

You understand that Landon IP, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Intellogist website to our users, may (a) transmit or distribute your Content over various public networks and in various media; and (b) make such changes to your Content as are necessary to conform and adapt that Content to meet technical requirements of connecting networks, devices, services or media and/or to remove materials that run contrary to our policies. You agree that this license shall permit Landon IP to take these actions.

We may at any time, terminate our legal agreement with you if you have breached any provision of the Terms (or have acted in manner which clearly shows that you do not intend to, or are unable to comply with the provisions of the Terms) or we are required to do so by law.
