You agree and understand that the usage of this Website and any other website managed by The Project constitutes your agreement to this Agreement, including, but not limited to The Project’s Privacy Policy as amended from time to time. You are free to refuse to use this Website if you do not agree to this Agreement or if your jurisdiction will not honor this Agreement. “You” means both any entity or individual who is Your employer for whom You act as agent and the Website visitor individually. Persons who are under the age of majority in their jurisdiction are not permitted to use this Website unless their parent or legal guardian has agreed to this Agreement on their behalf.

This Website contains a variety of information, including, but not limited to: information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages, or other materials that You upload, post, or otherwise provide in connection with the Website (hereafter, “Content”). Much of the Content of the Website is not available for downloading, such as The Project’s copyrighted works that The Project does not distribute or works of other that The Project is not permitted to distribute. However, The Project may also have Content that, if so designated, may be permitted to be downloaded by You pursuant to this Agreement (hereafter, “Available Content”). YOU MAY REVIEW DOWNLOAD, COPY, DISTRIBUTE, AND USE THE AVAILABLE CONTENT SOLELY FOR THE PURPOSE OF FURTHERING YOUR MISSION IN THE ORDINARY COURSE OF YOUR GOVERNMENTAL OR CHARITABLE PURPOSE AND ATTENDANT OPERATIONS. YOU MAY NOT SELL THE AVAILABLE CONTENT OR OTHERWISE DISTRIBUTE IT FOR A FEE. YOU WILL NOT USE OR DISCLOSE IT OR THE SITE TO ANY THIRD PARTIES EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PERMITTED BY THIS AGREEMENT.

For some areas of the Website, You may have to complete a registration process or create a profile for use in applying for something (e.g., a job or a grant). Completion of the process will usually create an account with a user name and password or other identifier which You agree to guard as confidential information. If You are careless with it, others may be able to access the information. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information at all times. You also agree that You will review, maintain, correct, and update such information in a timely manner to maintain its accuracy and completeness by using the means allowed for the relevant information or, when appropriate, by contacting The Project.

You agree that any visits to linked sites are at Your own risk and governed by their privacy notices, statements, or policies (if any). You are not permitted to link or shortcut to this Website from Your Web site, blog or similar application, without obtaining prior written permission from The Project.

 

This Agreement and Your use of the Website are governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, U.S.A., without regard to its choice of law provisions, except where You are required by published governmental law, ordinance, regulation, directive, order, or the like (collectively, "Mandate") to contract for application of the law of your local jurisdiction. You hereby consent to exclusive jurisdiction of a state or federal court of general jurisdiction sitting in Kent County, Delaware, U.S.A. except to the extent you are prohibited from doing so by a Mandate.

You have no continuing right to use the Website and The Project may deny or suspend access, or terminate or cancel this Agreement with or without cause and at any time and without prior notice.

The foregoing does not impair the enforceability of additional agreements you enter into such as an agreement for a grant.

The Project’s failure to act with respect to a breach by You does not waive The Project’s right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. Time is of the essence of the Entire Agreement and there are no third party beneficiaries of it. You may print or make an electronic copy of the Entire Agreement for your official records; to the extent required by law, The Project hereby instructs you to do so.

The Project and each of the Third Parties also reserves the right to deal nonelectronically and to require You to do so.

The Project will not give, sell, or otherwise transfer addresses maintained by it to any other party for the purposes of initiating, or enabling others to initiate, electronic mail messages except as authorized by law or appropriate personnel or policies of The Project. Except for parties authorized to have such addresses, persons may violate federal law if they: (1) initiate the transmission to our computers or devices of a commercial electronic mail message (as defined in the U.S. "CANSPAM Act of 2003") that does not meet the message transmission requirements of that act; or (2) assist in the origination of such messages through the provision or selection of addresses to which the messages will be transmitted.
