Terms & Conditions
- Accounts. To use some features of our Web site, you may need to create an account. To do so, you must provide correct and complete information. This means you cannot use a false or misleading name or a name that you are not authorized to use. Impersonating another person on our Web site is prohibited. You become entirely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account (including any and all charges incurred while your account is being used and liability for harm caused by statements made or materials posted under your account), so be sure to keep your account password secure and tell us immediately if you think there has been unauthorized use of your account.
Copyright. Everything on or used in connection with our website, including but not limited to text, images, graphics, logos, software, audio, and video content (collectively, "Content")—with the exception of User Generated Content as defined below—is owned by us and/or our affiliates, subsidiaries, licensors, or suppliers. This means that you cannot use the Content without our permission. Here’s what permission we do give you to use the Content. Subscribers may only use our Content in their community’s nonprofit communications, including, but not limited to bulletins, newsletters, websites, and other printed and online communications. Not for resale or redistribution. This means that you may not share your account information or Content with your friends or charge anything for it.
While subscribers are given permission to modify clip art illustrations bearing the "© LPi" (e.g., if you want only English text on a bilingual clip art, you may crop off the words in Spanish), any artwork involving photography cannot be cropped. If a subscriber wishes to use only part of an item that includes photography, the subscriber must purchase the photo and license, which information can be found in the copyright lines of LPi’s Photo Covers. If Content is an illustration with "© LPi" on it, however, we don’t prohibit users from modifying it.
- Community Features: Our Web site may contain functions such as discussion forums, bulletin boards, blogs, message boards, or other online community locations (collectively “Community Features”) where the following rules apply:
Your Profile information. When you create an account to use our Community Features, you do not have to disclose any of the “suggested” information like your gender, birth date, and real name.
You will, however, be able to build a public profile that allows other members to see information that you submit to us. You can privatize some of the information on your public profile, such as your e-mail address. To protect your safety, please use your best judgment. We discourage divulging personal phone numbers and addresses or other information that can be used to identify or locate you.
Under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. Although you do not have to disclose your birth date, if any information is disclosed in your profile or submissions that can identify you as a child under the age of 13, we reserve the right to delete, edit, or reject such information, your entire profile or your submission.
User Generated Content License. Please note that if you post, upload, or otherwise make available any User Generated Content on our Web site, you will still own the User Generated Content (assuming you have rights to own it) but you are giving us the right to use your User Generated Content. That means that if you send in, post, upload, make available, or disclose to us in any way any User Generated Content, you grant us, our affiliates, and related entities, the right use it any way we want in any medium without getting your permission or having to pay you for it.
In legal terms, by providing us with any User Generated Content, you grant us and our affiliates and related entities, a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and fully sub-licensable license to use, copy, reproduce, distribute, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, modify, adapt, translate, archive, store, and create derivative works from such User Generated Content, in any form, format, or medium, of any kind now known or later developed. Without limiting the generality of the previous sentence, you authorize us to share the User Generated Content across all Web sites and online media platforms, newspapers, television and radio broadcast stations, and any other media now or hereafter known affiliated with us and to use your name, likeness, and any other information in connection with our use of the material you provide. You waive any moral rights you might have with respect to any User Generated Content you provide to us. You also grant us the right to use any material, information, ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained in any communication you provide or otherwise submit to us for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to, commercial purposes, and developing, manufacturing and marketing commercial products using such information. All rights in this paragraph are granted without the need for additional compensation of any sort to you.
Risk from User Generated Content. We try to create an environment in which users are posting and discussing content that you will find useful, interesting, and appropriate; however we cannot and do not monitor or manage all User Generated Content. Thus, we do not promise the accuracy, integrity, or quality of the User Generated Content and do not endorse it in any manner. In other words, enjoy what other members post or share, but do it at your own risk.
Also, all User Generated Content provided on the Web site is the sole responsibility of the person who provided it. This means that you are entirely responsible for all User Generated Content that you provide.
