Terms of Service



Handylore is helpful information and is a collection of online resources, including forums, message boards, blogs, surveys, polls, shopping services, searchable databases, software, specialized audio, video, information, materials and other content within or represented on Handylore. The Content is provided free of charge to you (unless otherwise indicated). We want to encourage the distribution of free content but, we can only do so if users follow our guidelines and stay within the legal parameters outlined in these terms.

We generally do not monitor or edit the content, and we do not take any responsibility for this content. Similarly, we do not endorse any opinions expressed via our services, and we do not represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any community submitted article or content.

We simply provide access to content that other users like yourself have contributed and edited. We do not take control of the content because all of Handylore's content is provided by users like yourself. This means that you are responsible for your own actions: You are legally responsible for your contributions on Handylore, so for your own protection you should exercise caution and avoid contributing to any content that may result in criminal or civil liability under any applicable laws. For clarity, applicable law includes at least the laws of the United States of America.

Although we may not agree with such actions, we warn editors and contributors that authorities may seek to apply other country laws to you, including local laws where you live or where you view or edit content. WMF generally cannot offer any protection, guarantee, immunity or indemnification.

As used in this Terms of Service, “Members” means you, upon registering with the Site, and other members who have registered with the Site. “Community Services” includes our groups, discussions, member profiles, comment areas, blogs, polls and areas where Users and/or Members can submit assets known as “User-Generated Content”. “User-Generated Content” means all User or Member submitted items to the Site through Community Services or email to the Site as well as any attachments to those submissions.



1. Basic Terms

These Terms of Service are set forth as the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Site. Unless explicitly stated otherwise by Handylore, all Content made available through the Site, including without limitation any new feature added from time to time, is automatically subject to these Terms. If you do not accept all of these terms, then please do not use or register to use the site. Handylore recommends that you print out a copy of these Terms of Service for future reference.

The services Handylore provides may change from time to time without prior notice to you. In addition, Handylore may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services (or any features within the Services) to you or to users generally and may not be able to provide you with prior notice. We also retain the right to create limits on use and storage, at our sole discretion at any time without prior notice to you.

These Services, which may be targeted to the Content or information on the Services, queries made through the Services, or other information. The types and extent of advertising by Handylore on the Services are subject to change. In consideration for Handylore granting you access to and use of the Services, you agree that Handylore and its third party providers and partners may place such advertising on the Services or in connection with the display of Content or information from the Services whether submitted by you or others. This Statement is our terms of service that governs our relationship with users and others who interact with Handylore.



2. Community Guidelines

Handylore may contain interactive areas such as comments sections, discussion forums, bulletin boards, or other interactive features in which you may post or upload comments or user-generated content such as video, photos, messages, other materials or items (collectively, “User Content"). You are solely responsible for your use of any Interactive Areas and you use them at your own risk. If you submit any User Content or participate in an interactive area within, or in connection with Handylore.com, you agree to abide by These Terms of Service. By submitting User Content to our interactive area(s), you represent that you are 13 years of age or older and, if you are under the age of 18, you either are an emancipated minor, or have obtained the legal consent of your parent(s) or legal guardian to enter into these Terms of Service, submit content, participate on handylore, and fulfill the obligations set forth in these Terms of Service, which forms a binding contract between you and Handylore.

The community has the primary role in creating and enforcing policies applying to the different article editions. Handylore rarely intervenes in community decisions about policy and its enforcement. In an unusual case, the need may arise, or the community may ask us, to address an especially problematic user because of significant User Content disturbance or dangerous behavior. In such cases, we reserve the right, but do not have the obligation to investigate your use of the services to determine whether a violation of these Terms of Service, or other applicable law or policy has occurred, or to comply with any applicable law, legal process, or appropriate governmental request; Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues or respond to user support requests; Refuse, disable, or restrict access to the contribution of any user who violates these Terms of Service; Ban a user from editing or contributing or block a user's account or access for actions violating these Terms of Service, including repeat copyright infringement; Take legal action against users who violate these Terms of Service (including reports to law enforcement authorities); and Manage otherwise the User Content websites in a manner designed to facilitate their proper functioning and protect the rights, property, and safety of ourselves and our users, licensors, partners, and the public.

These decisions may include sanctions as set out by the policy of the specific User Content.

Specifically problematic users who have had accounts or access blocked on multiple Project editions may be subject to a ban from all of the Project editions, in accordance with the Global Ban Policy.

Without limiting the authority of the users, Handylore will not ban a user from editing or contributing or block a user's account or access solely because of good faith criticism that does not result in actions otherwise violating these Terms of Service or Privacy Policies.



Content

Subject to these Terms, Handylore hereby grants you a nonexclusive, nontransferable right to access the Site, access the content and the software which includes, but is not limited to files, images incorporated in or generated by the software, and data accompanying the software, made available through the site; and download, print and use one copy of the Content for your personal or internal use only. Unauthorized access to Handylore, or to the or computer facilities used to deliver the Handylore, is a breach of the Terms and is a violation of law.

If you download software from the site, the software is licensed to you by Handylore pursuant to the above license grant and pursuant to other terms and conditions that accompany the software, if any, Handylore does not transfer title to the software to you. You may own the medium on which the software is recorded, but Handylore or its licensors retains full and complete title to the software and all intellectual property rights therein.

No content, or trademarks, service marks and logos contained in the content or User Content, may be copied, reproduced, republished, uploaded, posted, transmitted or distributed in any way without the prior written consent of Handylore or the applicable owner of such Content and Marks. If you download or print a copy of the Content for personal use, you must retain all copyright and other proprietary notices contained therein. Modification of the Content or use of the Content for any other purpose is a violation of Handylore’s copyright and other proprietary rights. For purposes of these Terms, the use of any such Content on any other website or networked computer environment is prohibited.

Except as specifically permitted in these Terms, you may not, directly or indirectly transfer, sell, sublicense, rent or lease the content on the software, circumvent any encrypted data or gain access to more materials or data than was licensed or use Handylore in any manner which violates this these Terms or any applicable law. You may not reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, translate or convert any software or computer programs used to access the Site and/or copy (except as provided herein), reproduce, disclose, distribute, display, perform, publish, adapt, create derivative works of, translate or otherwise modify the content and/or software or permit any third party to engage in any of the previously stated acts. Any special rules for the use of the content or software, accessible on the site may be included elsewhere within Handylore and are incorporated into these Terms of Service by reference.

All users are required to grant broad permissions to the general public to re-distribute and re-use their contributions freely, so long as that use is properly attributed and the same freedom to re-use and re-distribute is granted to any derivative works. In keeping with our goal of providing free information to the public audience, we require that when necessary all submitted content be licensed so that it is freely reusable by anyone who cares to access it. Users contributing text to Handylore to which you hold the copyright, you agree to license it under: GNU Free Documentation License (“GFDL”) and Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License (“CC BY-SA”) with no invariant sections, front-cover texts, or back-cover texts). The only exception is if the User Content or feature requires a different license. In that case, you agree to license any text you contribute under that particular license. For example, at the publication of this version of the Terms of Service, Handylore mandates that all text content is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 Generic License (CC BY 2.5) and does not require a dual license with GNU Free Documentation License (“GFDL”).

Attribution is an important part of these licenses because these licenses do allow commercial uses of your contributions, as long as such uses are compliant with the terms. When you contribute text, you agree to be attributed through hyperlink (where possible) or URL to the article to which you contributed (since each article has a history page that lists all authors and editors), through hyperlink (where possible) or URL to an alternative, stable online copy that is freely accessible, which conforms with the license, and which provides credit to the authors in a manner equivalent to the credit given on the Project website, or through a list of all authors (but please note that any list of authors may be filtered to exclude very small or irrelevant contributions). You may import text that you have found elsewhere or that you have co-authored with others, but in such case you warrant that the text is available under terms that are compatible with the CC BY-SA 3.0 license (or, as explained above, another license when exceptionally required by the Project edition or feature)("CC BY-SA"). Content available only under GNU Free Documentation License (“GFDL”) is not permissible.

If you import text under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License ("CC BY-SA") license that requires attribution, you must credit the author(s) in a reasonable fashion. Where such credit is commonly given through pages, it is sufficient to give attribution in the edit summary, which is recorded in the page, when importing the text. The attribution requirements are sometimes too intrusive for particular circumstances (regardless of the license), and there may be instances where Handylore decides that imported text cannot be used for that reason. Non-text media on User Content is available under a variety of different licenses that support the general goal of allowing unrestricted re-use and re-distribution. When you contribute non-text media, you agree to comply with the requirements for such licenses as described in our Licensing Policy, and also comply with the requirements of the specific User Content or article to which you are contributing. No revocation of license except as consistent with your license, you agree that you will not unilaterally revoke or seek invalidation of any license that you have granted under these Terms of Service for text content or non-text media contributed to Handylore, even if you terminate use of our services. When contribute content that is in the public domain, you warrant that the material is actually in the public domain, and you agree to label it appropriately.

When you re-use or re-distribute a text page developed by Handylore, you agree to attribute the authors through hyperlink(s) to the page or pages that you are re-using, through hyperlink(s) to an alternative, stable online copy that is freely accessible, which conforms with the license, and which provides credit to the authors in a manner equivalent to the credit given on the User Content or article, or through a list of all authors.

If the text content was imported from another source, it is possible that the content is licensed under a compatible Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License ("CC BY-SA") license but not GNU Free Documentation License (“GFDL”) (as described in “Importing text,” above). In that case, you agree to comply with the compatible CC BY-SA license and do not have the option to re-license it under GFDL. To determine the license that applies to the content that you seek to re-use or re-distribute, you should review the page footer, page history, and discussion page.

In addition, please be aware that text that originated from external sources and was imported into a Project may be under a license that attaches additional attribution requirements. Users agree to indicate these additional attribution requirements clearly. Depending on the Project, such requirements may appear for example in a banner or other notations pointing out that some or all of the content was originally published elsewhere. Where there are such visible notations, re-users should preserve them. For any non-text media, you agree to comply with whatever license under which the work has been made available (which can be discovered by clicking on the work and looking at the licensing section on its description page or reviewing an applicable source page for that work). When re-using any content that we host, you agree to comply with the relevant attribution requirements as they pertain to the underlying license or licenses.

Modifications or additions to material that you re-use when modifying or making additions to text that you have obtained from website, you agree to license the modified or added content under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License ("CC BY-SA") or later (or, as explained above, another license when exceptionally required by the specific Project edition or feature). When modifying or making additions to any non-text media that you have obtained from a website, you agree to license the modified or added content in accordance with whatever license under which the work has been made available with both text content and non-text media, you agree to clearly indicate that the original work has been modified. If you are re-using text content on Handylore, it is sufficient to indicate the page that you made a change to the imported text. For each copy or modified version that you distribute, you agree to include a licensing notice stating which license the work is released under, along with either a hyperlink or URL to the text of the license or a copy of the license itself.

All Content, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, is the sole responsibility of the person who originated such Content. We may not monitor or control the Content posted via the services and, we cannot take responsibility for such content. Any use or reliance on any materials or content posted via the Services or obtained by you through the Services is at your own risk.

Handylore contains copyrighted material, trademarks and other proprietary information, including, but not limited to, text, software, photos, video, graphics, music and sound, and the entire contents of Handylore.com are copyrighted as a collective work under the United States copyright laws.

We reserve the right to remove content alleged to be infringing without prior notice, at our sole discretion, and without liability to you. In appropriate circumstances, Handylore will also terminate a user’s account if the user is determined to be a repeat infringer.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe in good faith that materials hosted by Handylore infringe on your copyright, you (or your agent) may send Handylore’s designated copyright agent a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it blocked by providing Handylore’s Copyright Agent with the following information:

• Your physical or electronic signature;

• A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;

• Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;

• A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;

• Information reasonably sufficient to permit a Handylore representative to contact you, such as a name, address, telephone number, and, if available, an e-mail address;

• Your name, address, telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located or, if your address is outside of the USA, for any judicial district in which Handylore may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement or an agent of such person.

• Identification of the copyrighted and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit the Handylore to locate the material, or work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at the site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at the Site;

• A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

• A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.

Handylore wants to ensure that the content that we host can be re-used by other users without fear of liability and that it is not infringing the proprietary rights of others. In fairness to our users, as well as to other creators and copyright holders, our policy is to respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the formalities of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Pursuant to the DMCA, we will terminate, in appropriate circumstances, users and account holders of our system and network who are repeat infringers.

However, we also recognize that not every takedown notice is valid or in good faith. In such cases, we strongly encourage users to file counter-notifications when they appropriately believe a DMCA takedown demand is invalid or improper. For more information on what to do if you think a DMCA notice has been improperly filed, you may wish to consult the "Chilling Effects" website.

If you are the owner of content that is being improperly used on one of the Projects without your permission, you may request that the content be removed under the DMCA. To make such a request, please email us at Legal@Handylore.com.

If a counter-notice is received by our copyright agent, Handylore may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider or the User, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Handylores sole discretion.

Notices and counter-notices with respect to this website should be sent to Handylores’s copyright agent:

Email: Copyright@Handylore.com

Handylore suggests that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA. Handylore reserves the right to remove content alleged to be infringing without prior notice, at our sole discretion, and without liability to you. In appropriate circumstances Handylore will also terminate a user’s account if the user is determined to be a repeat infringer.

For clarity, only DMCA notices and counter-notices should go to the Copyright Agent, any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support, and other communications should be directed to Handylore at Contact@Handylore.com. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this section, your DMCA notice may not be valid.
