To ensure the smooth operation of DeveloperMedia and to ensure that your rights and the rightsof DeveloperMedia are protected, we have created a series of legal agreements including these Terms of Service (the “TOS”).
The content on this Site is provided by DeveloperMedia and its licensors and content providers. The “Site” refers collectively to https://developermedia.com or any website that replaces, supplements, or supersedes the Site as the website of DeveloperMedia.
TERMS OF SERVICE: The basic agreement is the TOS which you are now reading. The TOS set out the legal terms by which DeveloperMedia makes the Site and services available. When you visit the Site or use any DeveloperMedia Service (defined below) you agree to comply with the TOS, as revised and updated from time-to-time.
FOR CONTRIBUTORS OF DOCUMENTS: If you contribute documents, articles or reviews in any form or media (“Documents”), you (“Contributor”) give us the necessary rights to edit and post and maintain your Document (and the edited version), and to prevent unauthorized uses by end-users of Documents that we edit. Users are given rights to read your Document, but no rights to republish or otherwise distribute your Document. DeveloperMedia will retain your copyright notices, and can publish your name and site ID with your posting. If we edit your Document, we will own the edited version, and you will own your original version. We cannot publish our edited version other than on the Site, without your consent. If you desire end users to be able to contact you, you should advise DeveloperMedia so your contact information can be published. If your Document has been previously published, that publisher may have rights, and if so, you must obtain all required consents before posting the Document on DeveloperMedia. If your Document contains images, audio, or video, we require that you have obtained consents from all persons depicted, seen, or heard, the owners of any places depicted, and any other rights holders. If you are submitting a Document in response to an RFP from a third party through DeveloperMedia, all ownership rights and any other rights and responsibilities are governed by the agreement between you and the party requesting the RFP. DeveloperMedia shall not retain any rights in such Documents, or have any responsibility for the contents of such Documents.
FOR USERS OF DOCUMENTS: We require that you respect our Contributors. In general, all rights, except the right to read/view/listen to posted Documents for your personal non-commercial use are reserved to the Contributors, or to us. If you are submitting an RFP for a Document from a Contributor, your use of the Document is governed by any agreement entered into with the Contributor. DeveloperMedia shall not retain any rights in such Documents, or have any responsibility for the contents of such Documents.
CONTENT PROVIDER PORTAL: By registering with DeveloperMedia, you may be able to access a secure portal (the “Content Provider Portal”) that provides you with access to Documents and other materials and forums, allows Contributors to submit Documents and other materials, and facilitates communication, such as requesting and responding to RFPs for Documents. As a Contributor, you can provide your contact information to allow registrants to contact you directly. DeveloperMedia has no responsibility for any contacts between registrants and Contributors facilitated through the Content Provider Portal, and any Contributors providing their contact information are doing so at their own risk.
ADVERTISING SERVICES: In addition to these TOS, you also must read and agree to a separate Advertising Agreement if you are engaging DeveloperMedia for digital advertising services, including without limitation posting advertisements, creating content, , lead generation, managing on-line contests, providing industry information and data, and utilizing DeveloperMedia’s network of affiliated and third-party websites (“Publisher Websites”) to display advertisements (either as a “Publisher” or advertiser).
