The Video Mosaic Collaborative consists of the web site, services, VMC logo, the VMC video collection, VMC tools, VMC published information resources and contributions by VMC participants in the form of comments or blog entries. The terms of use for each part of the Video Mosaic Collaborative (hereinafter collectively "VMC") are described below.

VMC Web Site and Services

The VMC Web Site and its services are intended to be accessed and used through the interfaces provided at the VMC website (http://www.videomosaic.org).

You agree not to access (or attempt to access) the VMC by any means other than through the interfaces that are provided by the VMC. You specifically agree not to access (or attempt to access) any portion of the VMC through any automated means (including use of scripts or web crawlers) and shall ensure that you comply with the instructions set out in any robots.txt file that may be present on the VMC. You agree that you will not engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts the VMC or the servers and networks which are connected to the VMC.

This site or any portion of this site or any of its services may not be reproduced, duplicated, copied, sold, resold, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose that is not expressly permitted by the VMC.

The VMC reserves the right to refuse service or terminate accounts at its discretion, including, without limitation, if we believe that user conduct violates applicable law or is harmful to the interests of VMC and its collaborators, although VMC is under no obligation to do so.

VMC Logo

The VMC logo may be used without written permission for the purpose of providing a link to http://www.videomosaic.org and its associated web pages in support of educational or other noncommercial use, for example, directing students in an education course to the VMC or providing a link to the VMC in a webliography. Other uses of the VMC logo shall be only with prior written permission (e-mail or hard copy) from the VMC.

VMC Tools

VMC tools, for example the VMCAnalytic and the VMC registrant's workspace, are intended for use within the VMC for registered participants in the VMC only. Instructions for use are provided for each tool and represent the only authorized use of each tool made available on the VMC. The VMC does not warrant the use of any tool provided on the website. With your use of each tool, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the VMC for any impact of that tool's use on your personal computing platform, device or software.

No tool may be reproduced or shared except as and when explicitly licensed for open source use by Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, or its assigns.
