Terms of Use

Welcome to CIHEAM IAMC web pages!

This page explains our terms of use. When you use CIHEAM IAMC web pages you’re agreeing to all the rules on this page. Some of them need to be expressed in legal language, but we’ve done our best to offer you clear and simple explanations of what everything means - hence the brief summaries in these blue boxes.

 

Welcome to CIHEAM IAMC web pages. By using this website (the “Site”) and services (together with the Site, the “Services”) offered by CIHEAM IAMC, you’re agreeing to these legally binding rules (the “Terms”). You’re also agreeing to our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy.

We may change these terms from time to time. If we do, we’ll let you know about any material changes, either by notifying you on the Site or by sending you an email. New versions of the terms will never apply retroactively - we’ll tell you the exact date they go into effect. If you keep using CIHEAM IAMC web pages after a change, that means you accept the new terms.

About Creating an Account

If you sign up for a CIHEAM IAMC web page account, you’re responsible for your account and all the activity on it.

You can partial browse CIHEAM IAMC web pages without registering for an account, by using your email and set a password. When you do that, the information you give us has to be accurate and complete. Don’t impersonate anyone else or choose names that are offensive or that violate anyone’s rights. If you don’t follow these rules, we may cancel your account.

You’re responsible for all the activity on your account, and for keeping your password confidential. If you find out that someone’s used your account without your permission, you should report it to it@maich.gr.

Things You Definitely Shouldn’t Do

This section is a list of things you probably already know you shouldn’t do — lie, break laws, abuse people, steal data, hack other people’s computers, and so on. Please behave yourself. Don’t do this stuff.

We expect all of you to behave responsibly and help keep this a nice place. Don’t do any of these things on the Site:

  • Don’t break the law. Don’t take any action that infringes or violates other people’s rights, violates the law, or breaches any contract or legal duty you have toward anyone.

  • Don’t lie to people. Don’t post information you know is false, misleading, or inaccurate. Don’t do anything deceptive or fraudulent.

  • Don’t victimize anyone. Don’t do anything threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, tortious, obscene, profane, or invasive of another person’s privacy.

  • Don’t spam. Don’t distribute unsolicited or unauthorized advertising or promotional material, or any junk mail, spam, or chain letters. Don’t run mail lists, listservs, or any kind of auto-responder or spam on or through the Site.

  • Don’t harm anyone’s computer. Don’t distribute software viruses, or anything else (code, films, programs) designed to interfere with the proper function of any software, hardware, or equipment on the Site.

  • Don’t abuse other users’ personal information. When you use CIHEAM IAMC web pages - you may receive information about other users, including things like their names, email addresses, and postal addresses. This information is provided for the purpose of participating CIHEAM IAMC organized conference or lecture: don’t use it for other purposes, and don’t abuse it.

We also need to make sure that the Site is secure and our systems function properly. So don’t do any of these things - most of which boil down to “don’t mess with our system.”

  • Don’t try to interfere with the proper workings of the Services.

  • Don’t bypass any measures we’ve put in place to secure the Services.

  • Don’t try to damage or get unauthorized access to any system, data, password, or other information, whether it belongs to CIHEAM IAMC or another party.

  • Don’t take any action that imposes an unreasonable load on our infrastructure, or on our third-party providers. (We reserve the right to determine what’s reasonable.)

  • Don’t use any kind of software or device (whether it’s manual or automated) to “crawl” or “spider” any part of the Site.

  • Don’t take apart or reverse engineer any aspect of CIHEAM IAMC web pages in an effort to access things like source code, underlying ideas, or algorithms.

How We Deal with Copyright Issues

We comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. To learn more about how we deal with claims of copyright infringement, read our Copyright Policy.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act lays out a system of legal requirements for dealing with allegations of copyright infringement. CIHEAM IAMC complies with the DMCA, and we respond to notices of alleged infringement if they comply with the law and the requirements set forth in our Copyright Policy. We reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing, and to terminate accounts for repeat infringers. (We do this when appropriate and at our sole discretion.)

Deleting Your Account

You can delete your account by asking us to do so. Deleting your account won’t automatically make some content you’ve already posted go away.

We may retain certain information as required by law or as necessary for our legitimate educational purposes. All provisions of this agreement survive termination of an account, including our rights regarding any content you’ve already submitted to the Site.

Our Rights

To operate, we need to be able to maintain control over what happens on our website. So in this section, we reserve the right to make decisions to protect the health and integrity of our system. We don’t take these powers lightly, and we only use them when we absolutely have to.

CIHEAM IAMC reserves these rights:

  • We can make changes to the CIHEAM IAMC Intranet Site and Services without notice or liability.

  • We have the right to decide who’s eligible to use CIHEAM IAMC web pages. We can cancel accounts or decline to offer our Services. (Especially if you’re abusing them.) We can change our eligibility criteria at any time. If these things are prohibited by law where you live, then we revoke your right to use CIHEAM IAMC Intranet in that jurisdiction.

CIHEAM IAMC is not liable for any damages as a result of any of these actions, and it is our policy not to comment on the reasons for any such action.

The Rest

These are our official terms and our rules for how things work. (So if you ever see confusing or conflicting information about any of this stuff, just check these terms — they’re the last word.) Thanks so much for reading them, and for using CIHEAM IAMC web pages!

These Terms and the other material referenced in them are the entire agreement between you and CIHEAM IAMC with respect to the Services. They supersede all other communications and proposals (whether oral, written, or electronic) between you and CIHEAM IAMC with respect to the Services and govern our future relationship. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid under the law, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms otherwise will remain in full force and effect and enforceable. The failure of either you or CIHEAM IAMC to exercise any right provided for in these Terms in any way won’t be deemed a waiver of any other rights.

These Terms are personal to you. You can’t assign them, transfer them, or sublicense them unless you get CIHEAM IAMC’s prior written consent. CIHEAM IAMC has the right to assign, transfer, or delegate any of its rights and obligations under these Terms without your consent. CIHEAM IAMC will provide you notice via email, written notice, or by conspicuously posting the notice on our Site.

 

These terms will go into effect on May 25, 2018, at 12 a.m. Eastern Time, and apply to all projects launched on CIHEAM IAMC web pages on or after that date.
