Impact OASIS

Terms

TERMS & CONDITIONS

ImpactOASIS.com has launched a new social community that offers a powerful platform for families and friends touched by autism and interested in planning for the future to connect and communicate. ImpactOASIS.com is an interactive, content rich blog and video centric online community and personal exchange developed exclusively for these families and friends.

ImpactOASIS.com is for anyone and everyone who has had autism as a part of their lives and wants to share in a vision for the future of these children that includes promoting the inclusion and acceptance of autistic individuals into their local communities by establishing environmentally exemplary farm centers that provide meaningful work, peaceful and healthy residences and community interaction. Families and friends of loved ones with autism who share our vision and recognize that we must plan for the future of these individuals can start groups and forums to discuss triumphs and tribulations, share life experiences and strategies, find support, learn about new treatments, exchange ideas, learn, share, support and provide solutions.

These terms of service cover your use of the Impact OASIS service for creating and enjoying social communities on the Impact OASIS Platform.

By joining Impact OASIS, creating, or using your profile built on www.ImpactOASIS.com, you are agreeing to the following terms of service (“Terms of Service” or “Terms”).

Description & Definitions
Impact OASIS offers a platform for creating your own user profile and provides access to the Impact OASIS community (“Community”). The following is designed to provide you with our rules, terms of use. We have a separate Community Guidelines document that focuses more of community rules. We encourage you to read that document as well.

Social Communities or Communities
Social Communities are forums, groups or blog postings and are created by members or by us and provided, through the use of the Impact OASIS platform, for members to connect with other members online. Social Communities include features such as member profiles, friends, comments, recommendations, forums, photo sharing, video sharing, reviews, ratings, people matching, and events, among others.

Users | Members
Users and members are people or businesses who register on Impact OASIS to create, find, visit, use, and contribute to one or more community, which can include posting or responding to content.

Content
Content means any work of authorship (other than the code and the user interface of a social community), including member profiles, comments, recommendations, forums, photos, videos, sounds, images, text, files, listings, postings, messages, or other materials posted on or transmitted through the Impact OASIS platform or through any community. Members upload content to social communities. Social communities, in turn, control content. If the community creator or member designates the community as private, any content submitted to that community will be deemed to be private content. Private content is licensed for use only within the community into which it is posted. Public content is available in the community in which it is posted.

Tags
Tags are descriptions (words or phrases) you can assign to content. You can assign as many Tags to content as you wish. You can also add, edit, and delete tags that you've assigned.

Ownership of Content
Impact OASIS does not claim any ownership rights in the content members provide. You, as a community member, own the content you create and upload (“your content”). After posting your content, you continue to retain all ownership rights in such content, and you continue to have the right to use your content in any way you choose, provided, the content does not violate any of the covenants of the Impact OASIS Community Guidelines.

We also want to encourage sharing of content between members and communities across the Impact OASIS network. To this end, by uploading content to a forum, group, blog or comment in which the content is designated as public content, you grant Impact OASIS and all other members a nonexclusive license to reproduce, create derivative works of, distribute, publicly perform, and publicly display such content on the condition that the content is attributed in a manner specified by its author, if at all (a “Public Content License”). If you upload content that is designated private content, you grant to Impact OASIS and all Impact OASIS members a nonexclusive license to reproduce, distribute, publicly perform, and publicly display such content on that community (including any RSS feeds and other distribution that is part of such community) (a “Private Content License”).

By using Impact OASIS, you agree to provide Impact OASIS a non-exclusive license to reproduce, distribute, publicly perform and display such content online or offline to generally promote Impact OASIS in advertising or other forums.

Unless you expressly state alternative applicable license terms in connection with your content submission, the Public Content License will apply by default to public content and the Private Content License will apply by default to private content.

We should also mention that you are responsible for making sure that you have all rights in the content you post that are necessary for you to grant everyone either the Public Content License or the Private Content License. (We'll cover this in more detail later.)

Lastly, if a forum, group, any rich media or blog post is deleted, the content associated with that member may also be deleted at the discretion of the Community Manager. We would encourage you to be sure you are comfortable with this possibility before publishing content on Impact OASIS.

License from Impact OASIS
Impact OASIS grants to you, our member, a Creative Commons Attribution License to the content made available by Impact OASIS for which Impact OASIS owns the copyrights. In the event of a conflict between the Creative Commons Attribution License and these Terms, these Terms will control. Impact OASIS does not grant you any rights to another member’s content.

License to use the Impact OASIS Platform
During the term of these Terms, Impact OASIS grants you a limited, revocable license to use the software underlying and enabling the Impact OASIS Platform as required for your use of the social communities built on top of it, subject to the terms and conditions of these Terms.

Proprietary Rights
These Terms of Service includes a number of licenses that are necessary for Impact OASIS to make your community and your content available through the Impact OASIS Platform. For example, without the right to modify content, Impact OASIS would not be able to format content to meet technical requirements, and without the right to publicly perform or publicly display content, Impact OASIS could not make the content available for other members to view.

Content
You agree to comply with the license and restrictions applicable to each item of content you post, copy, access or use.

You agree that all the intellectual property in the Impact OASIS Platform is owned by Impact OASIS or the applicable members(s). Except as expressly permitted under these Terms, you agree not to:

1. Modify, distribute, or create derivative works based on the Impact OASIS Platform.
2. Run, rent, lease, loan, or sell access to the Impact OASIS Platform.
3. Decompile, reverse engineer, or copy the Impact OASIS Platform or any community for which the source code is not provided to you; and
4. Reproduce or distribute any private content outside the applicable community.

Trademarks
Impact OASIS, the Impact OASIS platform, community, network and other related graphics, our logo and sub-logos, or trademarks, used on the Impact OASIS Platform are the trademarks of ImpactOASIS.COM, and may not be used without permission. Other trademarks, Impact OASIS Platform marks, that may appear on ImpactOASIS.COM are the property of their respective owners.

Accounts, Passwords, and Security
You must be a registered member to create or upload content and use any forum, group, upload rich media or write blog posts on the Impact OASIS Platform. Impact OASIS and its community Manager, in turn, determine whether members need to be registered with Impact OASIS to contribute content in that community. As a member, you are responsible for keeping your password secure. Names of members and Impact OASIS IDs are non-transferable. You will be solely responsible and liable for any activity that occurs under your Impact OASIS user ID or screen name.

Content and Interaction
You agree to comply with the license and restrictions applicable to each item of content you post, copy, access, or use.

Content by other members or advertisers is made available to you through social communities and the Impact OASIS Platform. Because Impact OASIS does not necessarily control such content, you agree that Impact OASIS is not responsible for any such content, including advertising and information about third party products or services.

Your interactions with other members on the Impact OASIS Platform, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and the member. Like with any web-based interaction, we suggest that you use caution and good judgment. You agree that Impact OASIS is not responsible for any loss or damage incurred as the result of any such dealings or with respect to any other member’s use or disclosure of your Personal Data (as defined in the Privacy Policy). If there is a dispute between you and any third party (including any member), Impact OASIS is under no obligation to become involved. You release Impact OASIS, its officers, employees, shareholders, agents and successors from claims, demands and damages of every kind or nature arising out of or related to: (i) any disputes with other members, and/or (ii) the Impact OASIS Platform.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

Premium Services
ImpactOASIS.com provides a place to make online donations and merchandise sales. If you choose to sign up for a premium service, you agree to pay the applicable fees and abide by any additional requirements or rules associated with donations and merchandise sales.

To enable a great experience for all members on the ImpactOASIS.com Platform, you, as a member, must ensure your community(ies) and content don't unduly degrade the performance of the ImpactOASIS.com Platform. If your community(ies) exceed the quotas and limitations set by ImpactOASIS.com (e.g., storage or bandwidth) or otherwise degrade performance of the ImpactOASIS.com Platform or other services in any way, we may suspend your community(ies) at our sole discretion.
