Terms of Service for The Patriot Webring
Next, this is a preliminary Terms of Agreement. It is very liberal, so I doubt if anyone will find anything objectionable about it. If anyone does, they have only to contact me with their concern/s and I will try to modify those terms in question to meet their requirements. I want this to be something all Webmasters can be comfortable with.
TERMS OF SERVICE
The Patriot Webring is a open webring service. I say open because the number of websites I can host within this ring is currently unlimited. In the future this may change at the whim of the Webring System that hosts this webring, but for the present they have no such plans.
It is my policy to offer open, and relatively unrestricted access to my webring, with regard to the type of content allowed, with the exceptions noted in Appendix A. The Service provided by The Patriot Webring allows related websites a means to link together into easily navigable groupings referred to as a Webring. While I the Ringmaster provide the basic navigation system (navpanel) for this webring, each member website page hosting the navpanel for this webring does so on a different server owned and operated by another person who is often known as the Webmaster. The Patriot Webring has no control over, access to, or responsibility for the content found on these member web pages that display this ring's navpanel, or the associated web pages for these member websites, including images, links, trademarked material and/or other content.
Because of this, by using my webring and viewing member websites or their related pages, you understand and agree that you may be exposed to images and other material that you may find objectionable, indecent, or otherwise offensive. If the content or material found on a member website or one of it's other pages concerns you, then please provide me with the name of the website in question.
Due to the possibility of exposure to adult or mature content, and the collection of personal information (name, e-mail address, and year of birth), we do not allow children under the age of 14 to join this webring as hosted on the Red Oak Tree - Ring System (the webring system that is hosting this webring)!
This in no way means that children under the age of 14 may not navigate this webring, view members other website's pages, or that they cannot visit this ring's List/Hub page to find a member website. It just means that they cannot join this webring!
CONTENT OWNERSHIP CLAUSE
For content you make available through your website as hosted by The Patriot Webring, including descriptions, links and images, you grant that the world-wide, royalty free and non-exclusive license to reproduce and publish such content, for the sole purpose of promoting this webring. This license remains in effect only for as long as you continue to be a member of this webring, and it will end at the time you delete such content from this ring. In plain English, this means that you retain the copyright on all your content, but you grant us the right to use it in order to publicize this webring, and acquire new members. More members means more web exposure for you. This does not mean that we will use your graphics or content, it means we can use your website as an example or mention your website to prospective members. If you have any concerns on this, or if any part of it is not clear, then please contact me. What is yours, should remain yours!
RESERVED RIGHTS AND INDEMNITY
You agree to indemnify and hold The Patriot Webring, and its affiliates and agents harmless from any claim, liability, loss, or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees due to or arising out of content you make available through this webring, your use of this webring, your connection to this webring, your violation of these Terms of Service, or your violation of any rights of another.
