1. The Legal History Project ("LHP") provides the Calendar as an online kiosk which is open for viewing by both registered LHP website users and the public at large. Only registered users may view event details, post events to the Calendar, and edit events on the Calendar. Access to the Calendar is not a right, but a privilege granted by LHP at its exclusive discretion. Any use of the Calendar establishes the user's consent to abide by LHP's Calendar Policy ("Policy").
2. Questions regarding the Policy may be referred to the . Likewise, any potential breaches of the Policy may be referred to the . The user is advised that while his or her identity is not displayed as part of a Calendar entry or edits thereto, it is tracked for Policy compliance purposes.
3. Entries to the Calendar must be made in good faith, and only for those events which concern legal history, its study and its interpretation. An entry must reflect the best knowledge that the user has of the event. Users are advised not to enter events if they must guess at the event's basic details. Users are also requested to ensure that their entries are kept up-to-date, particularly with respect to cancellations, venue changes, etc. LHP assumes no responsibility for entries to the Calendar, and does not vouch for their accuracy.
4. Users are free to choose the access restrictions, if any, to be placed on the editing of their entries. A user should not, however, place restrictions on an entry unless the user represents, or has been so authorized by, the sponsor of the event in question.
5. The Calendar may be used to announce for-profit or otherwise commercial events, but may not be used for general commercial advertisements or solicitations unless expressly so authorized in advance by LHP. The Calendar may also never be used for any illegal or illicit purpose. Violations under this section include, but are not limited to, appeals for money, requests for credit card or other financial information, and presentation, advertisement or solicitation to view, receive or transmit pornographic, vulgar, racist or other illegal, illicit or otherwise generally offensive materials.
6. Users shall not post any e-mail address or website address which the possessor of the address does not intend to be made public, or which could not otherwise be reasonably considered public.
7. LHP may, without giving prior notice, impose sanctions on any user who violates the Policy, including by: deleting the user's Calendar entry; removing the user's Calendar or website privileges; and, in unusually serious cases, exposing the user's identity on the Forum. LHP may elect to contact the relevant authorities about a user whom LHP deems to have possibly violated relevant or applicable criminal law.
8. The user, and any person holding rights or obligations under the user, shall hold LHP and its operator(s) legally harmless for any violation of law which might occur on the Calendar or otherwise on the LHP website, and shall indemnify LHP and its operator(s) for any legal expense or award arising from the user's act or omission. The Calendar is generally open to the public, and for this and other good reasons LHP and its operator(s) make no warranty, promise or other assurance as to the content of the Calendar. LHP and its operator(s) are under no duty to monitor or manage the content of the Calendar, and any efforts which they may make in this respect are ex gratia and do not impose any legal duty upon them. No silence or omission by LHP or its operator(s) shall be interpreted as endorsing or committing a violation of the Policy or applicable law.
9. As use of the Calendar is a privilege, not a right, such use does not grant or imply any proprietary or other right or possession over any part of the LHP website.
10. LHP and its operator(s) are permitted but not required to access, modify or delete any Calendar entry.
Policy enacted April 6, 2005. No updates have yet been made.
