The following Terms and Conditions outline your obligations when using the NavyForMoms.com website.

This website ("Site") is sponsored by the United States Navy (“NAVY”) and produced and maintained by Campbell-Ewald Company (collectively "we," "us," "our" “NavyForMoms”) through Ning.com (“Ning”). By using this Site, you agree to be bound by each of the terms and conditions set forth below and any amendments thereto ("Terms and Conditions"). Please return to this Site and review these Terms and Conditions from time to time, as they may be amended without notice. Any changes to these Terms and Conditions will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Terms and Conditions on this Site.

Description & Definitions

We offer a NavyForMoms Platform for creating your Navy Moms Network (“NavyForMoms Platform”). Our lawyers want us to define some other terms as well, so here it goes:

Social Networks or Networks

are comprised of Code and Content. Networks are created by Users or by us and provided, through the use of the NavyForMoms Platform, for Users to connect with other Users online. Social Networks include features such as User profiles, friends, comments, recommendations, forums, photo sharing, video sharing, reviews, ratings, people matching, and events, among others.

Users

are people who register on NavyForMoms to create, find, visit, use, and contribute to one or more Networks, which can include posting Content or responding to Content.

Network Creators

are Users who have created a Network on the NavyForMoms Platform.

Code

is the source code (e.g., HTML or PHP code) used to provide the functionality behind Social Networks on the NavyForMoms Platform. Code may be contributed by us, developed by a User, provided by another User, or any combination of the three. Public Code is Code that all Users may copy, modify, and use in other Networks. Private Code is Code for a Network that Users (other than the Network Creator of that Network) are not allowed to view, copy, or modify; the applicable Network Creator may, through a premium service, designate the Network's Code as Private Code.

Content

means any work of authorship (other than the Code and the user interface of a Social Network), including User profiles, comments, recommendations, forums, photos, videos, sounds, images, text, files, listings, postings, messages, or other materials posted on or transmitted through the NavyForMoms Platform or through any Network. Users upload Content to Social Networks. Social Networks, in turn, control Content. If we designate the Network as private, any Content submitted to that Network will be deemed to be Private Content. Private Content is licensed for use only within the Network into which it is posted. Public Content is available in the Network in which it is posted, other Networks, as well as the bar, which we'll get to in a moment.

Tags

are descriptions (words or phrases) you can assign to Content. You can assign as many Tags to Content as you like. You can also add, edit, and delete Tags that you've assigned.

Ningbar

is the space reserved by Ning in all Social Networks to provide services to Users of Networks on the their Platform. When closed, it occupies the top 30 pixels of every page. When the Ningbar is open, it will offer the NavyForMoms Platform Services for Users, including User registration, a message center, friends and contacts (including the ability to import contacts from third party email services), and a listing of the Networks you are using across the NavyForMoms Platform.

NavyForMoms Platform Services

include, but aren't limited to: single sign-on (via a “Ning ID”) for all Social Networks on any Platform; managing lists of friends and contacts; messaging between Users; importing of contacts who are not Users of Ning; navigation; and search. As a Network Creator, we also offer: User registration; User account management; Secure PHP Sandbox for development; Network management and security; Internal and external APIs; Javascript-compatible markup API, URL command line API for auto-generation of pages; Semi-structured Content Store; Network display, management, and search.

Proprietary Rights

All materials on this Site, including, without limitation, names, logos, trademarks, images, text, columns, graphics, photographs, illustrations, artwork, software, clips and other elements making up this Site (collectively, "Content") are protected by copyrights, trademarks and other intellectual property rights owned and controlled by us or by other parties that have licensed or otherwise provided their material to us. You acknowledge and agree that all Content on this Site is made available for limited, non-commercial, personal use only. Except as specifically provided herein or elsewhere on this Site, no Content may be copied, reproduced, republished, downloaded, posted, transmitted, or distributed in any way, or otherwise used for any purpose, by any person or entity, without our prior express written permission.

To request permission from us, please contact: Navyinfo@c-e.com. Our granting of your request shall be at our sole discretion and may be conditioned on the payment of a fee, and the requirement that you secure certain third party permissions and enter into an agreement with respect to your proposed use. You may not add, delete, distort, or otherwise modify the Content. Any unauthorized attempt to modify any Content, to defeat or circumvent our security features, or to utilize this Site or any part of the Content for any purpose other than its intended purposes is strictly prohibited. Any NAVY marks appearing on this website including, but not limited to: NAVY and the NAVY Logo, are trademarks and/or service marks of the United States Navy.

Code and Content

You agree to comply with the license and restrictions applicable to each item of Content you post, copy, access, or use.

You agree that all the intellectual property in the NavyForMoms Platform, other than the Content you provide, are owned by CE and/or NAVY or the applicable User(s). Except as expressly permitted under these Terms, you agree not to:

  1. Modify, distribute, or create derivative works based on the NavyForMoms Platform.
  2. Run, rent, lease, loan, or sell access to the NavyForMoms Platform.
  3. Decompile, reverse engineer, or copy the NavyForMoms Platform or any Network for which the source code is not provided to you or Code that is marked as Private Code; and
  4. Reproduce or distribute any Private Content or Private Code outside the applicable Network.
Trademarks

Ning, the host Platform and other related graphics, our logo and sub-logos, Ning marks, and trade names used on the Ning Platform are the trademarks of Ning and may not be used without permission. Other trademarks, NavyForMoms marks, NAVY marks and trade names that may appear on NavyForMoms are the property of their respective owners.

Accounts, Passwords, and Security

You must be a registered User to create Networks on the NavyForMoms Platform. Networks and their Network Creators, in turn, determine whether Users need to be registered with NavyForMoms to contribute Content in that Network.

You will be solely responsible and liable for any activity that occurs under your Ning ID.
