We know that most people never read the terms and conditions, but since Euclid’s Muse involves intellectual property, we feel that it is extremely important that all of our users understand our Terms. Rather than present a long, legal-sounding document, we have kept our terms simple, readable and understandable. Please remember however, that this does NOT mean that these terms don’t serve a legal purpose. Throughout this document, the plural first person (we) refers to Saltire Software, Inc., maker of Geometry Expressions and Euclid’s Muse; the singular second person (you) refers to the reader of this document and each user of our site.
Everything that you upload to Euclid’s Muse is licensed under either the Creative Commons Attribution (CC By 3.0) or the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs (CC BY-NC-ND 3.0) license, at your choice. Any hidden items, constraints, and calculations that are not visibly present, or obvious when manipulating inputs in the case of apps, are NOT released. If you choose to upload a .gx source file, that means that this source file and all of its contents including hidden constraints are available under the same license you chose for the primary file (note the incompatibilities of the Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs license with source files, however). You reserve the rights to everything that you choose not to upload, including the specific methods with which figures were constructed, in cases where there are underlying/hidden constraints and the source file is not included. You do not reserve the rights to any idea or ideas that are presented via your uploaded content.
Viewing and Sharing
Content from Euclid’s Muse may not be shared in any way without including a link back to the page from which the content came (in accordance with our licensing options). This link is present in all of the sharing options we provide, but if, for example, you wish to include an image, animation, or app image download from Euclid’s Muse in a document or presentation you must include the url of the image, app, or animation display page (NOT the location of the image file itself) at a minimum. This url may either be in the long form (ex. http://euclidsmuse.com/members/admin/apps/app/97) or the short form (ex. http://euclidsmuse.com/app?id=97). A formal citation is not required, but is recommended for intellectual reference usage. Thus, all intellectual property you release remains tied to you through this page; which includes the description and tags that you provide as well as a link to your profile page. While we reserve the right to remove content, we NEVER reserve any rights to change the attribution of content between users. If we determine that it is necessary to remove access to your account due to a violation of our terms, we reserve the right to make the decision to either remove all of your uploads or to archive your account. In the case of archival, all content will remain linked to your profile, but we reserve the right to change the contents of your profile in any way we see fit. Essentially, if you violate our terms, you risk losing some of the protections set forth in them.
Removal of Content
We reserve the right to edit and/or remove any content that you upload or post, for any reason, without notifying you. You, in turn, reserve the right to edit and/or remove any content that you post, for any reason, without notifying us. Content that is found inappropriate in any reasonable way (including academically), by anyone, should be reported to us here. We will consider the removal of all reported content. If your content has been removed, and you would like an explanation, please consult the listing of removed content. We will always delete all information associated with a removed item.
Community Standards and Values
We really shouldn’t have to say this… but… this is a website designed for use by people of all ages. This includes in classrooms of students of all ages. We’re dealing with MATH here, so nothing that you upload or post should be inappropriate in any way according to anyone’s reasonable standards (including intellectual property – see above). Please respect your rights to free and appropriate speech and keep all content appropriate for everyone. If you don’t comply and have multiple offenses, you may lose access.
Distribution of Content Authored by Others
Content from Euclid’s Muse may NOT be shared in any way without including a link back to the page from which the content came, in accordance with our licensing options. This link is present in all of the sharing options we provide, but if, for example, you wish to include an image, animation, or app screenshot from Euclid’s Muse in a document or presentation you must include the url of the image, app, or animation display page (NOT the location of the image file itself) at a minimum. This url may either be in the long form (ex. http://euclidsmuse.com/members/admin/apps/app/97) or the short form (ex. http://euclidsmuse.com/app?id=97). A formal citation is not required, but is recommended for intellectual reference usage. If the original author or an administrator deletes the content for any reason (which we reserve the right to do – see the Removal of Content section), then any links, embeds, etc. will become broken. You are responsible for periodically checking these items and removing them if the content has been removed from Euclid’s Muse. We are not required to, have no way of, and thus will not, notify you directly if any content has been removed; but we will document our removal of uploads in the listing of removed content.
