Master terms:

1. Master Terms

Welcome and thank you for your interest in Creative Commons. Unless otherwise noted on a particular site or service, these Master Terms of Use (“Master Terms”) apply to your use of all of the websites that Creative Commons Corporation operates. These include https://creativecommons.org, https://wiki.creativecommons.org, https://network.creativecommons.orghttps://search.creativecommons.org, https://labs.creativecommons.org, http://openpolicynetwork.orghttp://open4us.org, https://rightsback.org, http://teamopen.cc and http://thepowerofopen.org together with all other subdomains thereof (collectively, the “Websites”). The Master Terms also apply to all products, information and services provided through the Websites, including, without limitation, the license chooser, legal tools, the CCID service available at https://login.creativecommons.org/login (“CC Login Service”) and the CC Global Network community website (together with the Websites, the “Services”).

Additional Terms: In addition to the Master Terms, your use of any Services may also be subject to specific terms applicable to a particular Service (“Additional Terms”). If there is any conflict between the Additional Terms and the Master Terms, then the Additional Terms apply in relation to the relevant Service.

Collectively, the Terms: The Master Terms, together with any Additional Terms, form a binding legal agreement between you and Creative Commons in relation to your use of the Services. Collectively, this legal agreement is referred to below as the “Terms”.

Human-readable summary of Section 1: These terms, together with any special terms for particular websites, create a contract between you and Creative Commons. The contract governs your use of all websites operated by Creative Commons, unless a particular website indicates otherwise. These human-readable summaries of each section are not part of the contract, but are intended to help you understand its terms.

2. Your agreement to the Terms

BY CLICKING “I ACCEPT” OR OTHERWISE ACCESSING OR USING OF THE SERVICES (INCLUDING THE LICENSES, PUBLIC DOMAIN TOOLS AND CHOOSERS) YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD AND AGREED TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS.                 By clicking “I ACCEPT” or otherwise accessing or using any Services you also represent that you have the legal authority to accept the Terms on behalf of yourself and any party you represent in connection with your use of any Services. If you do not agree to the Terms, you are not authorized to use any Services. If you are an individual who is entering into these Terms on behalf of an entity, you represent and warrant that you have the power to bind that entity, and you hereby agree on that entity’s behalf to be bound by these Terms, with the terms “you” and “your” applying to you, that entity and other users accessing the Services on behalf of that entity.

Human-readable summary of Section 2: Please read these terms and only use our sites and services if you agree to them.

3. Changes to the Terms

From time to time, Creative Commons may change, remove or add to the Terms, and reserves the right to do so in its discretion. In that case, we will post updated Terms and indicate the date of revision. If we feel the modifications are material, we will make reasonable efforts to post a prominent notice on the relevant Website(s) and notify those of you with a current CC Login Service account via email. All new and/or revised Terms take effect immediately and apply to your use of the Services from that date on, except that material changes will take effect 30 days after the change is made and identified as material. Your continued use of any Services after new and/or revised Terms are effective indicates that you have read, understood and agreed to those Terms.

Human-readable summary of Section 3: These terms may change. When the changes are important, we will put a notice on the website. If you continue to use the sites after the changes are made, you agree to the changes.
