New terms of use for the LuxRender site

Postby jeanphi » Sun Mar 14, 2010 2:11 pm


We're really sorry to bother you with such legal matters. But due to a previous developer threatening us with a lawsuit regarding his past contributions to the project, we want to make things extremely clear regarding the material contributed. This shouldn't change anything for normal day to day usage.

The following terms of use will become effective on March 22nd, 2010.

By accessing the LuxRender website (hereinafter “we”, “us”, “our”, “LuxRender website”, “LuxRender team”, “” [and any of its subdomains]), you agree to be legally bound by the following terms. If you do not agree to be legally bound by all of the following terms then please do not access and/or use the LuxRender website.

By publishing any content on the LuxRender website (including, but not limited to forum and bugtracker posts, wiki documents and revisions, source code) you hereby agree to the following:

You have no rights to impose any additional restrictions for your content published on the LuxRender website further to those provided by the aforementioned licenses, although we are not limiting you in your rights to restrict your content outside of our website.

You retain all your sole rights for any audio-visual content (including, but not limited to images, animations) published on our website outside of the wiki section. However you understand and agree that such content will be provided by request to any user accessing our website.

LuxRender team reserves the right to restrict access to all of your content or any part thereof published on our website, or completely remove it from our website for any reason we see fit. At the same time, based on terms and conditions of aforementioned licenses, you can be stripped of ability to delete by yourself any of your content published on our website and will have no right to demand their deletion from us (with the exception of audio-visual materials).

You accept to take upon yourself all responsibility in total for the contents of any material you publish on the LuxRender website. You agree not to publish any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated, copyright infringing or any other material that may violate any laws be it of your country, the country where the LuxRender website is hosted or International Law. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned, with notification of your Internet Service Provider if deemed required by us. The IP address of all posts are recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions.

Under no circumstances shall the LuxRender team be held liable for any rights or property interest violated by the content published on the LuxRender website by website users. If you find some content published on the LuxRender website infringing, you may contact us, providing a) precise and particular material location (including its URL and description), b) the reason you see the material infringing, and c) the legal basis for you to have the right to request for contents removal. However, the fact of your request does not imply an unconditional consent of the LuxRender team to fulfill it.

As a user you agree to any information you have entered to being stored in a database or on the server's filesystem. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent, the LuxRender team shall not be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.

We may change these terms at any time and we’ll do our utmost in informing you, though it would be prudent to review this regularly yourself as your continued usage of the LuxRender website after changes mean you agree to be legally bound by these terms as they are updated and/or amended.
