Scope of this Policy:

The sites, content, services, and equipment hosted (the 'Service') are an online information and communications service provided by SpinelliCreations ('SpinelliCreations'), subject to your compliance with the terms and conditions set forth below.

To the extent permissable by law, the Service is not a 'Social Networking Site' (ala the likes of Facebook.com / MySpace.com / Twitter.com / etc.), as there is only one content provider - SpinelliCreations. This excludes, obviously, hosted content for third parties, in which case each party supplies its own content and license. Typically, third party content is to be free-and-or-open in nature (such as GPL'd code / images / etc.). However, you should be conscious to identify and examine the content access criteria for said third party(parties), in such instance as you make use of content. A good example of this would be a mirrored software repository.

Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using the Service. By accessing or using the Service, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth below. If you do not wish to be bound by these terms and conditions, you may not access or use the Service. SpinelliCreations may modify this Agreement at any time, and such modifications shall be effective immediately upon posting of the modified Agreement. You agree to review the Agreement periodically to be aware of such modifications, and your continued access or use of the Service shall be deemed your conclusive acceptance of the modified Agreement.

Copyrighted Material:

SpinelliCreations respects the intellectual property of others, and asks the users of this to do the same (specifically, to respect the intellectual property rights of SpinelliCreations). SpinelliCreations may, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, restrict access of users (typically access is restricted by blocking IP address subnets) who infringe the intellectual property rights of others and/or SpinelliCreations. It is the policy of SpinelliCreations to respond to claims on intellectual property infringement. SpinelliCreations will promptly process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions.

If you believe your work has been copied and is accessible on the SpinelliCreations site (in virtual space or in physical hardware) in a way that constitutes Copyright Infringement, you may notify SpinelliCreations by providing Abuse@SpinelliCreations.com the following information:

1. a physical or electronic signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest that is allegedly infringed;
2. a description of each copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed, including a copy of the copyrighted work;
3. identification of the URL or other specific location on the SpinelliCreations site (in virtual space or physical hardware) where the material that you claim is infringing is located;
4. your address, telephone number, and email address where you can be contacted;
5. a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
6. a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your Notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf.

Licensing:

The entire contents of the Service are protected under the United States copyright law. You may print and download portions of material from different areas of the Service solely for your own non-commercial use. You may make: (a) one machine readable copy, (b) one backup copy, and (c) one print copy of any portions of material downloaded from the different areas of the Service solely for your non-commercial use. Any other copying, redistribution, retransmission or publication of any downloaded material, is strictly prohibited without the express written consent of SpinelliCreations or any third party information provider to the Service. The sole exception to this rule is material downloaded for non-profit-educational use. This includes material reproduced for use in academic lectures, seminars, or conferences. 'Non-profit-educational' use is defined as 1) academic use where the Service's material is not the sole or majority topic of the course or academic venture AND students or participants must pay a fee or service to participate; 2) Service material is the sole or majority topic of an academic course, for which students or participants may freely participate, without required membership to any club or organization ('open to the public'). You agree not to change or delete any proprietary, copyright, author, or ownership notices from materials downloaded or printed from the Service.

You agree to grant to SpinelliCreations a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual license, with the right to sublicense, to reproduce, distribute, transmit, create derivative works of, publicly display and publicly perform any materials or other information (including, without limitations, ideas contained therein for new or improved products and services) you submit to SpinelliCreations (typically, via email to any @SpinelliCreations.com address) by all means and in any media now known or hereafter developed. You also grant to SpinelliCreations the right to use your name in connection with the submitted materials and other information as well as in connection with all advertising, marketing and promotional material related thereto. You agree that you shall have no recourse against SpinelliCreations for any alleged or actual infringement or misappropriation of any proprietary right in your communications to us.

Terms of Use:

SpinelliCreations is happy to offer the Service, including, but not limited to, Web-Hosting, Email and Webmail, Filesharing, VPN, and FTP. It is not the policy of SpinelliCreations to 'police the world'. The terms and conditions of this notice (as lain out in the above sections) are clear and distinct; easily understood. That being said, users, whether registered (those having a login / password account with SpinelliCreations for any specific service) or not (those who simply visit, utilize the Service, or in any way interact with the Service), are bound to these terms, conditions, and Copyright Policy.

As always, if you don't like or do not understand these simple tenets, you can leave.

In as much, email, open web space, and ftp -- simply by their nature -- create an arena of potential abuse and misuse.. these technological aids are for the advancement of 'good', not 'indecent childish mayhem'. Should one choose to abuse the privelage of using the Service, they will be blocked and flagged as soon as is possible. Following that, should enough information be logged to proceed, and damages can be shown, action shall be taken against the offending party and / or that party's agent. Consistent with the above, SpinelliCreations accepts no responsibility for the ill actions of its users.
