Gleanr Terms of Service
Welcome and thank you for gleaning! By accessing the benefits of the gleanr.com service ("Gleanr"), you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions ("Terms of Service").
This License Agreement is between CrowdTrust Technologies Inc. ("CrowdTrust") and any person who uses Gleanr information and services (our "Client").
Acceptance of Agreement
CrowdTrust Clients acknowledge acceptance of this Agreement by (i) clicking on the button indicating that the Agreement has been accepted and by (ii) providing a valid e-mail address.
CrowdTrust's gleanr.com application ("Gleanr") provides Clients access to personalized information tools and services (collectively, the Client “Account”) which enable Clients to capture, store, organize and share digital information that they compose or encounter on the Internet, enhanced by further information that CrowdTrust may create or collect to make the original information more useful and valuable to the Clients (collectively an information package is a “Glean”). The purpose is to enable Clients to leverage and channel their Gleans to generate value for themselves and their networks (Client "Networks").
Core Service Principles
CrowdTrust Clients entrust their Gleans on Gleanr based on three core service principles:
Clients own their Gleans. Every Glean consists of the information stored along with any information CrowdTrust creates or collects to make it more useful. CrowdTrust will make no use of any part of any Glean without Client consent. When a Glean is deleted, or an Account closed, any information that has not been explicitly shared by the Client will be destroyed forever.
Clients control their Gleans. CrowdTrust Clients have complete control over creating and deleting Gleans, and sharing them with their Networks. For example, a Client may keep some Gleans totally private, and may share, collect, publish, and syndicate other Gleans with individual Networks as they wish, including what profile, contact, and personal information each Network can view about them.
Clients deserve value. CrowdTrust will keep Client Gleans secure and available, and will respect Client privacy strictly as they define it. CrowdTrust will strive constantly to make Client Gleans work effectively in all the ways that generate value for them.
CrowdTrust will not attempt to own or exploit Client Gleans or Networks in any way.
CrowdTrust’s success depends on maximizing the value of Client Gleans to them.
Core Usage Principles
CrowdTrust Clients access Gleanr services according to three core usage principles:
Clients will do nothing illegal. Application of CrowdTrust services for inappropriate or illegal purposes is strictly prohibited. CrowdTrust will actively support justice authorities in this regard.
Clients will respect information. CrowdTrust Clients will respect the privacy and copyright provisions of other Client information and of information producers in general. Clients will not misrepresent themselves or deliberately generate misinformation.
Clients will respect the crowd. CrowdTrust Clients will not act in any way that prevents others from using these services and generating value for themselves.
Deletion of Accounts and Gleans
CrowdTrust reserves the right to delete any Client Accounts and Gleans in relation to a violation of the Core Usage Principles, at the sole discretion of CrowdTrust.
Information submitted to Gleanr should not be discriminatory or prejudicial. Specifically, information that is discriminatory in terms of racial, religious, gender, sexual orientation, geographical region or other such grouping is not suitable.
Content on Gleanr
CrowdTrust does not regularly monitor the Gleans generated by its Clients. As such, some information located on Gleanr may be objectionable, inappropriate, or offensive to other Clients. CrowdTrust cannot guarantee that a Client of CrowdTrust will not locate unintended or inappropriate content and assumes no responsibility for this content. Client Gleans found in CrowdTrust do not in any way imply endorsement by CrowdTrust or any of its affiliates. Since this information is not under CrowdTrust's control, it cannot be held responsible for the contents or for the opinions and statements that may be expressed therein. CrowdTrust cannot guarantee the accuracy, reliability, or timeliness of information encountered on Gleanr and, therefore, CrowdTrust cannot be held liable in any capacity for damages or losses to a Client or any third party that may result from the use of this information.
