The “Service” refers to the applications, software, products, and services provided by Chartipedia Limited.

B. Account Terms
Short version: A human must create your account. You must be at least 13 years old. You must provide a valid external identity. You may not have more than one free account.

You may not create an Account for the use of anyone under the age of 13.

Short version: We collect your information only with your consent. We only collect the minimum amount of personal information that is necessary to fulfill the purpose of your interaction with us. We don’t sell your personal information to third parties and we only use it as this Agreement describes.
1. Information Chartipedia Collects
We may collect basic browsing information from all visitors to the Website, including the visitor’s browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
If you log in to Chartipedia, we may require additional information: a valid email address, name, avatar image, biographical paragraph, and an account name from a supported identity provider.
“User Personal Information” is any information about one of our users which could, alone or together with other information, personally identify him or her. Information such as a user name, an email address, a real name, and a photograph are examples of “User Personal Information.”
User Personal Information does not include aggregated, non-personally identifying information. We may use aggregated, non-personally identifying information to operate, improve, and optimize our website and service.
2. What Information Chartipedia Does Not Collect
We do not intentionally collect sensitive personal information, such as social security numbers, genetic data, health information, or religious information. Although Chartipedia does not request or intentionally collect any sensitive personal information, we realize that you might store this kind of information in your account. If you store any sensitive personal information on our servers, you are consenting to our storage of that information on our servers, and you are responsible for complying with any regulatory controls regarding that data.
If your post has been published and is now public, anyone (including Chartipedia employees) may view its contents. If you have included private or sensitive information in your post, such as email addresses, that information may be indexed by search engines or used by third parties. In addition, while we do not generally search for content in your post, we may scan our servers for certain tokens or security signatures, or for known active malware.
3. How We Share the Information We Collect
We do share User Personal Information with your permission, so we can perform services you have requested or communicate on your behalf.
We do not share, sell, rent, or trade User Personal Information with third parties for their commercial purposes.
We may host advertising on Chartipedia. We may occasionally embed content from third party sites, such as YouTube, and that content may include ads.
We do not disclose User Personal Information outside Chartipedia, except in the situations listed in this section or when compelled to by law.
We do share certain aggregated, non-personally identifying information with others about how our users, collectively, use Chartipedia. However, we do not sell this information to advertisers or marketers.
We may share User Personal Information with your permission, so we can perform services you have requested.
We may share User Personal Information with a limited number of third-party vendors who process it on our behalf to provide or improve our service, and who have agreed to privacy restrictions similar those in our Terms of Service. Our vendors may perform services such as payment processing, sending email on our behalf, content delivery networking, error log analysis, and other similar services.
We may share User Personal Information if we are involved in a merger, sale, or acquisition. If any such change of ownership happens, we will notify you on our website or by email before any transfer of your User Personal Information.
4. Public Information on Chartipedia
Much of Chartipedia is public-facing. If your content is public-facing, third parties may access and use it in compliance with our Terms of Service. We do not sell that content; it is yours. However, we do allow third parties, such as internet archives, to compile public-facing Chartipedia information.
Your Personal Information, associated with your content, may be gathered by third parties in these compilations of Chartipedia data. If you do not want your Personal Information to appear in third parties’ compilations of Chartipedia data, please do not make your Personal Information publicly available.
Certain pages on our site may set other third party cookies. For example, we may embed content, such as videos, from another site that sets a cookie. Or another user’s post may embed a third party video. While we try to minimize these third party cookies, we can’t always control what cookies this third party content sets.
6. Tracking and analytics
We use a number of third party analytics and service providers to help us evaluate our users’ use of Chartipedia, compile statistical reports on activity, and improve our content and website performance. In addition, we may use third party analytics software to provide features and improve our service and performance.
We do not permit third parties other than our analytics and service providers to track our users’ activity over time on Chartipedia. We do not track your online browsing activity on other online services.
E. User-Generated Content
Short version: You own the content you create, but you allow us certain rights, so that we can display and share the content you post. You still have control over your content, and responsibility for it, and the rights you grant us are limited to those we need to provide the service. We have the right to remove content or close Accounts if we need to.
1. Responsibility for User-Generated Content
You may create or upload User-Generated Content while using the Service. You are solely responsible for the content of, and for any harm resulting from, any User-Generated Content that you or Team Users post, upload, link to or otherwise make available via the Service, regardless of the form of that Content. We are not responsible for any public display or misuse of your User-Generated Content.
2. Chartipedia May Remove Content
We have the right (though not the obligation) to refuse or remove any User-Generated Content that, in our sole discretion, violates any Chartipedia terms or policies.
3. Ownership of Content, Right to Post, and License Grants
You retain ownership of and responsibility for Your Content. If you’re posting anything you did not create yourself or do not own the rights to, you agree that you are responsible for any Content you post; that you will only submit Content that you have the right to post; and that you will fully comply with any third party licenses relating to Content you post.
Because you retain ownership of and responsibility for Your Content, we need you to grant us — and other Chartipedia Users — certain legal permissions, listed in Sections E.4. These license grants apply to Your Content. If you upload Content that already comes with a license granting Chartipedia the permissions we need to run our Service, no additional license is required. You understand that you will not receive any payment for any of the rights granted in Sections E.4. The licenses you grant to us will end when you remove Your Content from our servers.
4. License Grant to Us and Other Users
You grant Chartipedia and our users a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide licence to use, store, display, reproduce, save, modify, create derivative works, perform and distribute your User Content on Chartipedia solely for the purposes of operating, developing, providing and using Chartipedia. Nothing in these Terms restricts other legal rights Chartipedia may have to User Content, for example under other licences.
This license does not grant Chartipedia the right to sell Your Content or otherwise distribute or use it outside of our provision of the Service.
5. Moral Rights
You retain all moral rights to Your Content that you upload, publish, or submit to any part of the Service, including the rights of integrity and attribution. However, you waive these rights and agree not to assert them against us, to enable us to reasonably exercise the rights granted in Section E.4, but not otherwise.
To the extent this agreement is not enforceable by applicable law, you grant Chartipedia the rights we need to use Your Content without attribution and to make reasonable adaptations of Your Content as necessary to render the Website and provide the Service.
F. Copyright Infringement and DMCA Policy
If you are a copyright owner and you believe that content on Chartipedia violates your copyright, please contact us by emailing email@example.com. There may be legal consequences for sending a false or frivolous takedown notice under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
