Other than connecting to Rare Parenting servers by HTTP requests using a web browser, you may not attempt to gain access to Rare Parenting servers by any means, including, without limitation, by using administrator passwords or by masquerading as an administrator while using the Website or otherwise.
You agree not to disrupt, modify or interfere with the Website or its associated software, hardware and servers in any way, and you agree not to impede or interfere with others’ use of the Website.
The Site may provide links to other sites which are not under the control of Rare Parenting. These links are provided for convenience and reference only and are not intended as an endorsement by Rare Parenting. We are not responsible or liable to you or any other third party for the content, usefulness, or accuracy of any material provided by a third party. Any reliance you place on such information is strictly at your own risk.
You are responsible for all Content that you submit, post, or otherwise make available to or through the Site. By doing so, you represent and warrant to Rare Parenting that such content is not confidential and that you have all necessary permission to submit, post and otherwise make available such Content.
However there are some uses of copyrighted materials which fall under “fair use” such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. The US copyright office has a FAQ devoted to Fair Use, which you may want to review before posting copyrighted materials and it states:
“The distinction between fair use and infringement may be unclear and not easily defined. There is no specific number of words, lines, or notes that may safely be taken without permission.
Acknowledging the source of the copyrighted material does not substitute for obtaining permission.”
Photos and images, even those taken or created by laypersons, are also subject to copyright protection. Furthermore, the people in photographs may have additional rights that prohibit display of the photos without permission. Therefore, no photos or images should be posted unless you have all necessary permission to do so.
