- COMMUNITY CONTENT POLICY
This messaging policy applies to all messaging channels within our Community. We are committed to keeping the Community Content Policy as easy as possible and we expect you to understand that you must not use the Community to transmit any Content that is unlawful, that infringes any intellectual property rights, or that otherwise violates Higher Logic’s Acceptable Use Policy. If you think a Community member is providing Content in violation of the Acceptable Use Policy, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have no control over and do not guarantee: (a) message/discussion response times to questions that are asked in the Community; (b) the suitability or legality of Content provided by Community members; (c) the truth or accuracy of Content provided by Community members; (d) the performance or conduct of Community members; or (e) who a Community member permits to access and use the Community on their behalf.
Please remember that sometimes, Content provided by you may not seem abusive, obscene, or offensive to you but might seem so to others. You are solely responsible for compliance with your employer’s or organization’s policies and requirements. Furthermore, you are responsible for compliance with any regulatory or legal requirement that you may be subject to because of your employment, residence, or role within an organization.
Subject to ¶6 , you acknowledge and agree that (i) we may publicly share Content that you submit to the Community (including for marketing purposes); (ii) you have no expectation of privacy with respect to Content you submit to the Community, including in ; and (iii) we and our Affiliated Entities (as defined in ¶10 below), have a non-exclusive, world-wide, royalty-free, fully paid up, perpetual and irrevocable license to de-identify, anonymize, process and create derivative works of Content that you submit to the Community for the purpose of deriving anonymous statistical and usage data, and data related to the use and functionality of the Community, provided such data cannot be used to identify you (“Anonymous Data”) and combining or incorporating such Anonymous Data with the Content and information of others, for any purpose, including to improve, enhance, further develop and test the Community and any of our technology, to create and refine algorithms and other machine learning methods and processes, to identify and predict patterns and trends, and to train and refine machine learning or analytical models or engines.

You grant to ProntoForms a perpetual, worldwide, fully-paid-up right and license to use, copy, modify, publish, republish, distribute and create derivative works based on, in any form, any Content or material you contribute to the Community. Subject to the limited rights expressly granted hereunder, ProntoForms reserves all rights, title and interest in and to all intellectual property rights in the Community, including but not limited to its user interface, branding, Content, ideas, and underlying technology.

If you are given access to and use of one or more Community Groups by either a Group Administrator or a ProntoForms Super Administrator, then notwithstanding ¶4(i) above, we agree to refrain from publicly sharing any Content that you submit to a Group and will treat all such Content as private to the Group; however, as we cannot control the actions of other Group members, as stated in ¶4(ii) above, you should have no expectation of privacy with respect to Content you submit to a Community Group. If you agree to act as a Group Administrator, you agree to: (i) maintain the validity of memberships within the Group and immediately notify the ProntoForms Super Administrator (using the contact information provided at ¶8 below) if a member is removed from the Group, including the reason for such removal; and (ii) ensure all Group members adhere to the Community Rules & Etiquette Guidelines and the Community Content Policy (as described in ¶4 above), failing which, you agree to immediately email the ProntoForms Super Administrator with details of the Group member’s misconduct using the contact information provided at ¶8 below.

If you wish to terminate only your Group account (not your Community account), please email you Group Administrator. We may suspend or terminate your access to the Community and/or a Group immediately without any liability, for any reason upon notice or without notice, if in our sole judgment, you have violated these Terms. We may also suspend or terminate your use of the Community and/or a Group, or condition your continued use on additional terms. If your continued use, in our sole judgment, poses an undue or disproportionate burden to the Community, a Group or networks, or if your activity in the Community or a Group is disruptive or detrimental to other Community members or the security of the Community or a Group, your account may be cancelled, your employer or other organization that provided you with access to the Community or a Group may be notified, and you may be banned from future participation in the Community, a Group and/or other Community events. If we suspend or disable your Community and/or Group account for a violation of these Terms, you must not create another Community and/or Group account without our permission.
- COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT
If you believe that any Content infringes a copyright that you own or control, please send the ProntoForms Super Administrator a summary of your concerns, either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by regular mail to:

These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein, without giving effect to the principles of conflicts of law and excluding the body of law applicable to choice of law.
