Full Agreement

1. Introduction

1.1. Purpose
Our mission is to improve outcomes for veterans and military families through data-driven collaboration.  Our Services are designed to enable you to connect, collaborate, learn, and find success in a network of like-minded organizations, agencies and professionals.

1.2. Agreement
You agree that by clicking “Join Now”, “Subscribe”, “Register”, or “Sign Up”, you are entering into a legally binding agreement (even if you are using our services on behalf of a company or government agency).  Your agreement is with the National Association of Veteran-Serving Organizations (also known as NAVSO), a 501c3 company registered in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

This “Agreement” includes this Terms and User Agreement and the Privacy Policy, and other terms that will be provided as new features are offered.  If you do not agree to this Agreement, do NOT click “Join Now” (or similar) and do not access or otherwise use any of our Services.

Registered users of our Services are “Users” and unregistered users are “Visitors”. This Agreement applies to both.

2. Obligations

2.1. Service Eligibility
To use the Services, you agree that: (1) you must be the “Minimum Age” (defined below) or older; (2) you will only have one NAVSO account, which must be in your real name; and (3) you are not already restricted by NAVSO from using the Services.

“Minimum Age” means 17 years old for all countries unless if law requires that you must be older in order for NAVSO to lawfully provide the Services to you (including the collection, storage and use of your information) then the Minimum Age is such older age. The Services are not for use by anyone under the age of 17.

2.2. Your Account
As between you and others, your account belongs to you. You agree to: (1) try to choose a strong and secure password; (2) keep your password secure and confidential; (3) not transfer any part of your account (e.g., connections, groups) and (4) follow the law and the “Golden Rules” below. You are responsible for anything that happens through your account unless you close it or report misuse.

Note that all user accounts must correlate to an organizational account which means for most accounts, our Services have been purchased by another party for you to use (e.g. your employer).  As such the party paying for the Service controls such an account (which is different from your personal account) and may terminate your access to it should you no longer work for that employer or for any other reason your employer deems appropriate.

2.3 Payment
If you (or your employer) purchase any of our Services, you (or your employer) agree to pay us the applicable fees and taxes.  Failure to pay these fees may result in the termination of your subscription. Also:
    - You authorize us to store and continue billing your payment method (e.g. credit card) even after it has expired, to avoid interruptions in your service.
    - You must pay us for applicable fees and taxes unless you cancel Services, in which case you agree to still pay these fees through the end of the applicable subscription period. 
    - Taxes are calculated based on the billing information that you provide us at the time of purchase.

2.4. Notices
When you use our sites and services, or send e-mails to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by e-mail or by posting notices on our sites and services. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.  You agree that we may provide notices to you in the following ways: (1) a banner notice on the Service, or (2) an email sent to an address you provided, or (3) through other means including mobile number, telephone, or mail. You agree to keep your contact information up to date.

Please review your settings to control messages you receive from us.

2.5. Communications
Our Services allow communications in many ways, such as your profile, links to news articles, forums, libraries, and our learning academy.  Information and content that you share or post may be seen by other Users or, if public, by Visitors.  Where we have made settings available, we will honor the choices you make about who can see content or information (e.g., sharing to a group instead of your network, changing the default setting content from public to a more restricted view, limiting your profile visibility, or not letting people know when you change your profile, make recommendations or follow particular subjects or threads). 

We are not obligated to publish any information or content on our Service and can remove it in our sole discretion, with or without notice.

Other content prohibitions are set forth in supplemental terms for particular categories or services on our sites and services and all such prohibitions are expressly incorporated into this Agreement as stated in the introductory paragraphs above.

4. Rights and Limits

4.1. Your License to NAVSO
As between you and NAVSO, you own the content and information that you submit or post to the Services and you are only granting NAVSO the following non-exclusive license: A worldwide, transferable and sublicensable right to use, copy, modify, distribute, publish, and process, information and content that you provide through our Services, without any further consent, notice and/or compensation to you or others. These rights are limited in the following ways:
    - You can end this license for specific content by deleting such content from the Services, or generally by closing your account, except (a) to the extent you shared it with others as part of the Service and they copied or stored it and (b) for the reasonable time it takes to remove from backup and other systems.
    - We will not include your content in advertisements for the products and services of others (including sponsored content) to others without your separate consent. However, we have the right, without compensation to you or others, to serve ads near your content and information, and your comments on sponsored content may be visible as noted in the Privacy Policy.
    - We will get your consent if we want to give others the right to publish your posts beyond the Service.  However, other Users and/or Visitors may access and share your content and information, consistent with your settings and degree of connection with them.
    - While we may edit and make formatting changes to your content (such as translating it, modifying the size, layout or file type or removing metadata), we will not modify the meaning of your expression.
    - Because you own your content and information and we only have non-exclusive rights to it, you may choose to make it available to others.

You agree that we may access, store and use any information that you provide in accordance with the terms of the Privacy Policy and your privacy settings.

By submitting suggestions or other feedback regarding our Services to NAVSO, you agree that NAVSO can use and share (but does not have to) such feedback for any purpose without compensation to you.

You agree to only provide content or information that does not violate the law nor anyone's rights (e.g., without violating any intellectual property rights or breaching a contract).  You also agree that your profile information will be truthful. NAVSO may be required by law to remove certain information or content in certain countries.

4.2. Service Availability
We may change, suspend or end any Service, or change and modify prices prospectively in our discretion. To the extent allowed under law, these changes may be effective upon notice provided to you.

NAVSO is not a storage service. You agree that we have no obligation to store, maintain or provide you a copy of any content or information that you or others provide, except to the extent required by applicable law and as noted in our Privacy Policy.

4.3. Other Content
By using the Services, you may encounter content or information that might be inaccurate, incomplete, delayed, misleading, illegal, offensive or otherwise harmful. NAVSO generally does not review content provided by our Users.  You agree that we are not responsible for third parties' (including other Users') content or information or for any damages as result of your use of or reliance on it.

You are responsible for deciding if you want to access or use third party apps or sites that link from our Services.  If you allow a third party app or site to authenticate you or connect with your NAVSO account, that app or site can access information on NAVSO related to you and your connections. Third party apps and sites have their own legal terms and privacy policies, and you may be giving others permission to use your information in ways we would not.  Except to the limited extent it may be required by applicable law, NAVSO is not responsible for these other sites and apps -- use these at your own risk.  Please see our Privacy Policy.

4.4. Limits
NAVSO reserves the right to limit your use of the Services, including the number of your connections and your ability to contact other Users.  NAVSO reserves the right to restrict, suspend, or terminate your account if NAVSO believes that you may be in breach of this Agreement or law or are misusing the Services (e.g. violating any “Golden Rules” below).

NAVSO reserves all of its intellectual property rights in the Services.  For example, NAVSO logos and other NAVSO trademarks, service marks, graphics, and logos used in connection with NAVSO are trademarks or registered trademarks of NAVSO.  Other trademarks and logos used in connection with the Services may be the trademarks of their respective owners.

4.5.  Moderation
We have the right, but not the obligation, to regulate content (which includes but is not limited to postings, text, code, images, video, accounts, account information, emails, messages and any other user communications (“content”)) posted to, stored on or transmitted via our sites and services by any user (or any other third party in any manner); to regulate conduct (including but not limited to any authorized or unauthorized access to or use of our sites and services) by any user (or any other third party in any manner); and to enforce this Agreement, for any reason and in any manner or by any means that we, in our sole discretion, deem necessary or appropriate (including but not limited to automated and manual screening, blocking, filtering, exclusion from index pages, exclusion from search results, requiring the use of an application programming interface (API), requiring the use of a bulk posting interface, authorization, verification, and the deletion and/or termination of content, accounts and/or all or any use or access). We may, in our sole discretion and without notice, start, stop or modify any regulation or enforcement measures at any time.  Our action or inaction to regulate content or conduct or to enforce against any potential violation of this Agreement by any user (or any other third party) does not waive our right to implement or not implement regulation or enforcement measures with respect to any subsequent or similar content, conduct or potential Agreement violation.

You also understand and agree that any action or inaction by us or any of our directors, officers, employees, consultants, agents or representatives (collectively, “our representatives” and individually “our representative”) to prevent, restrict, redress or regulate content, or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential Agreement violation is undertaken voluntarily and in good faith, and you expressly agree that neither we nor any of our representatives will be liable to you or anyone else for any action or inaction to prevent, restrict, redress, or regulate content, or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential violation of this Agreement.

Although our representatives may moderate content on our sites and services at our discretion, our representatives have no authority to make binding commitments, promises or representations to anyone that they or anyone else on behalf of us will handle of any alleged problem or complaint, or that they or anyone else on behalf of us will otherwise stop or prevent any problem, content, conduct or purported Agreement violation from occurring or recurring.  Accordingly, you further agree that any representation (written or verbal) by our representative (or by anyone else acting on behalf of us or by anyone purportedly acting on behalf of us) that we (including but not limited to our representative, anyone else acting on behalf of us, or anyone purportedly acting on behalf of us) would or would not prevent, restrict, redress or regulate content (including, without limitation, screen, block, moderate, review, remove, terminate, delete, edit or otherwise stop, or exclude any content), or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential or purported Agreement violation is superseded by this provision and is nonbinding and unenforceable.  

Specifically, you agree that we, our representatives and anyone else authorized to act on behalf of us will in no circumstance be liable as a result of any representation that we, our representatives or anyone else on behalf of us would or would not restrict or redress any content, conduct or potential or purported Agreement violation.  For the purpose of clarity, the opinions, statements, comments, posts and other communications expressed on our sites and services are solely those of the poster and not ours, or an our employees, officers, directors, shareholders, subsidiaries, parent companies, attorneys or other agents. We do not guarantee the accuracy or reliability or the information provided by any poster, administrator, or moderator. Administrators and moderators are not our agents and their opinions, comments and posts are their own.  

NAVSO also has the right in its sole discretion to limit, modify, interrupt, suspend or discontinue all or any portions of our sites and services at any time without notice.

If we don't act to enforce a breach of this Agreement, that does not mean that NAVSO has waived its right to enforce this Agreement.  You may not assign or transfer this Agreement (or your account or use of Services) to anyone without our consent.
