Welcome you (or the “Member”) as a flagger, reader, editor, author, or contributor of AddFlag.com. We encourage you to join the AddFlag.com community. Before you participate, however, we ask that you please read and agree to the following Terms of Use (“Terms of Use”).

This Terms of Use is an agreement between AddFlag.com and you, the Member ("Member"), regarding your use of the AddFlag.com Website and any services, features, contents or applications offered at the AddFlag.com domain and related sub-domains (collectively the "Website"). By using the Website, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement.

1. AddFlag.com

The AddFlag.com is dedicated to encouraging the growth, development and distribution of free multilingual content, and to hosting the full content for the public free of charge. However, we act only as a hosting service, maintaining the infrastructure and organizational framework that allows our Members to build the network of AddFlag.com by contributing and editing content themselves.

We want you to know that we host an incredible quantity of informational content, all of which is contributed and made possible by Members like yourself. Generally we do not contribute, monitor, or delete content (with the rare exception of policies like these Terms of Use or legal compliance). This means that editorial control is in the hands of you and your fellow Members who create and manage the content. We merely host this content.

The community - the network of Members who are constantly building and using the AddFlag.com - are the principal means through which the goals of the network are achieved. The community contributes to and helps govern our sites.

You are welcome to join as a contributor, editor, or author, but you should follow the policies that govern by applicable laws. Because we are dedicated to making content freely accessible to the public, we generally require that all content you contribute is available under a free license or in the public domain.

Please be aware that you are legally responsible for all of your contributions, edits, and re-use of AddFlag.com content under the applicable laws (which may include the laws where you live or where you view or edit content). This means it is important that you use caution when posting content. In light of this responsibility, we have some rules about what you cannot post, most of which is either for your own protection or for the protection of other Members like yourself.

Because we provide a wide array of content that is produced or gathered by fellow Members, you may encounter material that you find offensive, erroneous, misleading, mislabeled, or otherwise objectionable. We therefore ask that you use common sense and proper judgment when using our services.

2. Responsibility

Because of our unique role hereinabove, there are a couple of things you should be aware of when considering our relationship to you:

Because we provide a wide array of content that is produced or gathered by fellow Members, you may encounter material that you find offensive, erroneous, misleading, mislabeled, or otherwise objectionable. We therefore ask that you use common sense and proper judgment when using our services.

3. Privacy Policy

AddFlag.com is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated as you make full use of the AddFlag.com website. By using AddFlag.com website, you consent to the policies and practices described in this Policy. This Policy may change from time to time with or without advance notice, so please check back periodically.

Our site may contain links to other websites over which we have no control. AddFlag.com owner, which owns and operates AddFlag.com website, is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of other websites to which you choose to link from AddFlag.com website. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those other websites so you can understand how they collect, use and share your information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to the information we collect on AddFlag.com website, and does not apply to information we collect in any other fashion. This policy will let you know:

The AddFlag.com website collects information in several ways from different parts of our website.

Registration

In order to become a AddFlag.com Member, you are requested to create an account on the website.

Information about your Contacts

In order to invite others to connect with you directly in AddFlag.com, you will enter their names and email addresses. This information will be used by AddFlag.com to send your invitation including a message that you write. The names and email addresses of people that you invite will be used only to send your invitation and reminders. Additionally, to serve the purpose of improving our service, we may use your email address to send messages which are only composed by AddFlag.com.

You may also choose to manually enter or upload data about your contacts into the private "Contacts" section of our website. All information entered there will only be viewable by you and will not be searchable by others in the AddFlag.com network without your permission. All information that you enter or upload about your contacts will be covered by the same terms of this Privacy Policy as cover your own identifiable information.

Cookies

As part of offering and providing customizable and personalized services, the AddFlag.com website may use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Several features of the AddFlag.com website require that you accept cookies in order to work properly.

One type of cookie, known as a "persistent" cookie, is set once you've logged in to your AddFlag.com account. The next time you visit the AddFlag.com website, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing Member so you will not need to log in before using the service. AddFlag.com currently keeps this cookie open for consecutive 2 weeks for your convenient use. In order to access or change any of your personal details, however, you must log in securely again with your password even if your computer contains your persistent cookie. Additionally, if you log out of the AddFlag.com site you will need to re-enter your password the next time you visit in order to log in to your account.

AddFlag.com will also gather or may gather certain information about your use of our site, such as what areas you visit and what services you access. Moreover, there is information about your computer hardware and software that is or may be collected by AddFlag.com. This information can include without limitation your IP address, browser type, domain names, access items and referring website addresses.

AddFlag.com is an online networking service dedicated to help all types of professionals more effectively connect with one another. The information you choose to provide on this site is used to help you describe yourself to other Members.

AddFlag.com Communications

AddFlag.com will communicate with you through emails and notices posted on this website. These include a series of notification emails which help inform new Members about various features of the service. Please be aware that you will always receive certain emails from AddFlag.com related to the proper functioning of your account, such as email notices when another Member in your network sends you an opportunity. AddFlag.com may send you promotional information unless you have opted out of receiving such information. If you wish to opt-out of receiving promotional emails, please change your Email Notifications under Privacy Settings.

Customized Content

Information you provide at registration or in your profile section is also used to customize your experience on the web site. For example, when you login to your account we will display the screen names of new Members who have recently joined your network.

Sharing Information with Third Parties

AddFlag.com takes the privacy of our Members very seriously, and we do not sell, rent, or otherwise provide your personal information or information about your use of the AddFlag.com website (such as the areas you visit or the services you access) to third parties, except as set forth in the following five subparagraphs.

- We may allow third parties to communicate with you through AddFlag.com system for appropriate contents. For example, if you indicate that you would like to receive information about the products or services of third parties, we may allow third parties such as employers, recruiters, data aggregators, marketers or others to send you email or communicate with you through AddFlag.com system. We may use data we have about you (such as the interests and preferences you have expressed) to determine whether you might be interested in the products or services of a particular third-party.

- We may disclose such information to companies and individuals we employ to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include hosting our Web servers, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card or other types of payments, and providing customer service. These companies and individuals will have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their functions, but they may not share that information with any other third party.

- We may disclose such information if legally required to do so, if requested to do so by a governmental entity or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of the legal entity owning AddFlag.com or its partner companies; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of Members or the public.

- We may disclose and transfer such information to a third party who acquires all or a substantial portion of the legal entity owning AddFlag.com, whether such acquisition is by way of merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a substantial portion of our assets.

- We may use your personal information from your account for any and all of AddFlag.com's marketing purposes. For example, that may be used in newspaper advertising, direct mail pieces, sales kits, posters and other materials related to AddFlag.com.

AddFlag.com may also share aggregated anonymous information about visitors to each section of AddFlag.com with its clients, partners and other third parties so that they may understand the kinds of visitors to the AddFlag.com website and how those visitors use the site.

Communications between Members

Many emails you initiate through AddFlag.com, an invitation sent to a non-Member for instance, will list your name in the header of the message. Emails you initiate may also provide aggregate information about your network (for instance how many people are in your network), but will never list the people to whom you're directly connected. Other communications that you initiate through the AddFlag.com website, like a request for contact, will list your name as the initiator but will not include your personal contact information. Your contact information will only be shared with another Member if both of you have indicated that you would like to establish contact with each other.

You can review the personal information you provided us and make any desired changes to the information, or to the settings for your AddFlag.com account, at any time by logging in to your account on the AddFlag.com website and editing the information on your profile page. Once you have logged onto the system during a given session, wherever you go on the AddFlag.com website, your information will stay with you until or unless you click on the "Sign out" link, which is accessible from within header of your own screens on AddFlag.com when you are logged in.

If you are a previously registered Member and you have lost or forgotten your password, you may obtain it by email by using our "Forgot Password" feature. Click the button on any login page to request that your password be emailed to you. We cannot provide your password by any other means.

Your AddFlag.com website account can be deleted, but doing so will result in not being able to access any of the features of the program that require Member registration. We will or may keep an archival copy of your account which is not accessible on the Internet.

In order to secure your personal information, access to your data on AddFlag.com is password-protected. AddFlag.com takes appropriate precautions to protect our Members' information. Unfortunately, perfect security does not exist on the internet, and therefore, AddFlag.com makes no representations or warranties with regard to the sufficiency of these security measures. AddFlag.com shall not be responsible for any damages that result from a lapse in compliance with this Privacy Policy because of a security breach, technical malfunction or similar problem. Always be careful and responsible regarding your personal information.

Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us or other Members by email or instant messaging services. If you have any questions about the security of the AddFlag.com website, please contact us.

The network of AddFlag.com is the vibrant community of Members like you who collaborate to write, edit, and curate the content. We happily welcome your participation in this community. We encourage you to be civil and polite in your interactions with others in the community, to act in good faith, and to make edits and contributions.

Certain activities, whether legal or illegal, may be harmful to other Members and violate our rules, and some activities may also subject you to liability. Therefore, for your own protection and for that of other Members, you agree to not use the AddFlag.com to:

Harass and Abuse Others

Violate the Privacy of Others

Engage in False Statements, Impersonation, or Fraud

Commit Infringement

Misuse Our Services for Other Illegal Purposes

Engage in Disruptive and Illegal Misuse of Facilities

Paid contributions without disclosure

These Terms of Use prohibit engaging in deceptive activities, including misrepresentation of affiliation, impersonation, and fraud.

You must make that disclosure in at least one of the following ways:

Applicable law, or community and our policies and guidelines, such as those addressing conflicts of interest, may further limit paid contributions or require more detailed disclosure.

The AddFlag.com community may adopt an alternative paid contribution disclosure policy. If The AddFlag.com adopts an alternative disclosure policy, you may comply with that policy instead of the requirements in this section when contributing to The AddFlag.com. An alternative paid contribution policy will only supersede these requirements if it is approved by the relevant The AddFlag.com community.

We reserve the right to exercise our enforcement discretion with respect to the above terms.

5. Password Security

You are responsible for safeguarding your own password and should never disclose it to any third party.

6. Trademarks

Although you have considerable freedoms for re-use of the content on the AddFlag.com websites, it is important that, at this website, we protect our trademark rights so that we can protect our Members from fraudulent impersonators. Because of this, we ask that you please respect our trademarks. Any use of our trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, or domain names must be in compliance with these Terms of Use and in compliance with applicable law.

7. Licensing of Content

To grow the commons of free knowledge and free culture, all Members contributing to the AddFlag.com are required to grant broad permissions to the general public to re-distribute and re-use their contributions freely, so long as that use is properly attributed and the same freedom to re-use and re-distribute is granted to any derivative works. In keeping with our goal of providing free information to the widest possible audience, we require that when necessary all submitted content be licensed so that it is freely reusable by anyone who cares to access it.

You agree to the following licensing requirements:

Information to which you hold the copyright: When you submit information to which you hold the copyright, you agree to license it under the laws of any applicable country (which may include the laws where you live or where you view or edit content) (Re-Members may comply with either license or both.)

Please note that these licenses do allow commercial uses of your contributions, as long as such uses are compliant with the terms.

Attribution: Attribution is an important part of these licenses. We consider it giving credit where credit is due – to authors like yourself. When you contribute information, you agree to be attributed in any of the following fashions:

No revocation of license: Except as consistent with your license, you agree that you will not unilaterally revoke or seek invalidation of any license that you have granted under these Terms of Use for content contributed to the AddFlag.com or features, even if you terminate use of our services.

Public domain content: Content that is in the public domain is welcome! It is important however that you confirm the public domain status of the content under the applicable law of any country. When you contribute content that is in the public domain, you warrant that the material is actually in the public domain, and you agree to label it appropriately.

Re-use: Re-use of content that we host is welcome, though exceptions exist for content contributed under "fair use" or similar exemptions under copyright law. Any re-use must comply with the underlying license(s).

When you re-use or re-distribute from the AddFlag.com community, you agree to attribute the authors in any of the following fashions:

If the content was imported from another source, it is possible that the content is licensed under a compatible license. In addition, please be aware that information that originated from external sources and was imported into the AddFlag.com website may be under a license that attaches additional attribution requirements. Members agree to indicate these additional attribution requirements clearly. Depending on the AddFlag.com, such requirements may appear for example in a banner or other notations pointing out that some or all of the content was originally published elsewhere. Where there are such visible notations, re-Members should preserve them.

For any non-text media, you agree to comply with whatever license under which the work has been made available (which can be discovered by clicking on the work and looking at the licensing section on its description page or reviewing an applicable source page for that work). When re-using any content that we host, you agree to comply with the relevant attribution requirements as they pertain to the underlying license or licenses.

8. Third-party Websites and Resources

You are solely responsible for your use of any third-party websites or resources. Although the AddFlag.com contain links to third-party websites and resources, we do not endorse and are not responsible or liable for their availability, accuracy, or the related content, products, or services (including, without limitation, any viruses or other disabling features), nor do we have any obligation to monitor such third-party content.

9. Management of Websites

The community has the primary role in creating and enforcing policies applying to the AddFlag.com website. We rarely intervene in community decisions about policy and its enforcement. In an unusual case, the need may arise, or the community may ask us, to address an especially problematic Member because of significant disturbance or dangerous behavior. In such cases, we reserve the right, but do not have the obligation to:

In the interests of our Members and the AddFlag.com, in the extreme circumstance that any individual has had his or her account or access blocked under this provision, he or she is prohibited from creating or using another account on or seeking access to the AddFlag.com, unless we provide explicit permission. Without limiting the authority of the community, the AddFlag.com itself will not ban a Member from editing or contributing or block a Member's account or access solely because of good faith criticism that does not result in actions otherwise violating these Terms of Use or community policies.

The AddFlag.com community and its Members may also take action when so allowed by the community or AddFlag.com policies applicable to the specific AddFlag.com edition, including but not limited to warning, investigating, blocking, or banning Members who violate those policies. You agree to comply with the final decisions of dispute resolution bodies that are established by the community for the specific AddFlag.com editions (such as arbitration committees); these decisions may include sanctions as set out by the policy of the specific AddFlag.com edition.

Especially problematic Members who have had accounts or access blocked on multiple AddFlag.com editions may be subject to a ban from all of the AddFlag.com editions. In contrast to Board resolutions or these Terms of Use, policies established by the community, which may cover a single AddFlag.com edition or multiple AddFlag.com editions, may be modified by the relevant community according to its own procedures.

The blocking of an account or access or the banning of a Member under this provision shall be in accordance with Section 11 of these Terms of Use.

10. Resolutions and AddFlag.com Policies

The AddFlag.com  releases official policies from time to time. Some of these policies may be mandatory for a particular edition, and, when they are, you agree to abide by them as applicable.

11. Termination

Though we hope you will stay and continue to contribute to the AddFlag.com, you can stop using our services any time. In certain (hopefully unlikely) circumstances it may be necessary for either ourselves or the AddFlag.com community or its Members (as described in Section 9) to terminate part or all of our services, terminate these Terms of Use, block your account or access, or ban you as a Member. If your account or access is blocked or otherwise terminated for any reason, your public contributions will remain publicly available (subject to applicable policies), and, unless we notify you otherwise, you may still access our public pages for the sole purpose of reading publicly available content on the AddFlag.com. In such circumstances, however, you may not be able to access your account or settings. We reserve the right to suspend or end the services at any time, with or without cause, and with or without notice. Even after your use and participation are banned, blocked or otherwise suspended, these Terms of Use will remain in effect with respect to relevant provisions, including Sections 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8-14, and 16.

12. Disputes and Jurisdiction

We hope that no serious disagreements arise involving you, but, in the event there is a dispute, we encourage you to seek resolution through the dispute resolution procedures or mechanisms provided by the AddFlag.com. If you seek to file a legal claim against us, you agree to file and resolve it exclusively in an arbitration center located in Singapore. You also agree that the laws of the Singapore and, to the extent applicable, the laws of the Singapore will govern these Terms of Use, as well as any legal claim that might arise between you and us (without reference to conflict of laws principles). You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of, and agree that venue is proper in, the arbitration center located in Singapore, in any legal action or proceeding relating to us or these Terms of Use.

To ensure that disputes are dealt with soon after they arise, you agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action you might have arising out of or related to use of our services or these Terms of Use must be filed within the applicable statute of limitations or, if earlier, one (1) year after the pertinent facts underlying such claim or cause of action could have been discovered with reasonable diligence (or be forever barred).

13. Disclaimers

At the AddFlag.com, we do our best to provide informational content to a very wide audience, but your use of our services is at your sole risk. We provide these services on an "as is" and "as available" basis, and we expressly disclaim all express or implied warranties of all kinds, including but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. We make no warranty that our services will meet your requirements, be safe, secure, uninterrupted, timely, accurate, or error-free, or that your information will be secure.

We are not responsible for the content, data, or actions of third parties, and you release us, our directors, officers, employees, and agents from any claims and damages, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with any claim you have against any such third parties. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from us or through or from our services creates any warranty not expressly stated in these Terms of Use.

Any material downloaded or otherwise obtained through your use of our services is done at your own discretion and risk, and you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from the download of any such material. You agree that we have no responsibility or liability for the deletion of, or the failure to store or to transmit, any content or communication maintained by the service. We retain the right to create limits on use and storage at our sole discretion at any time with or without notice.

Some states or jurisdictions do not allow the types of disclaimers in this section, so they may not apply to you either in part or in full depending on the law.

14. Limitation on Liability

The AddFlag.com will not be liable to you or to any other party for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible losses, regardless of whether we were advised of the possibility of such damage. In no event shall our liability exceed nine hundred ninety nine Singapore dollars (SD 999.00) in aggregate. In the case that applicable law may not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability or incidental or consequential damages, the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you, although our liability will be limited to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.

15. Modifications to these Terms of Use

Just as the AddFlag.com community's input is essential for the growth and maintenance of the AddFlag.com website, we believe that community input is essential for these Terms of Use to properly serve our Members. It is also essential for a fair contract. Therefore, we will provide these Terms of Use, as well as any substantial future revisions of these Terms of Use, to the community for comment at least thirty (30) days before the end of the comment period. If a future proposed revision is substantial, we will provide an additional 30 days for comments after posting a translation of the proposed revision in at least two languages (selected at our discretion). The community will be encouraged to translate the proposed revision in other languages as appropriate. For changes for legal or administrative reasons, to correct an inaccurate statement, or changes in response to community comments, we will provide at least three (3) days' notice.

Because it may be necessary to modify these Terms of Use from time to time, we will provide notice of such modifications and the opportunity to comment via the AddFlag.com website. However, we ask that you please periodically review the most up-to-date version of these Terms of Use. Your continued use of our services after the new Terms of Use become official following the notice and review period constitutes an acceptance of these Terms of Use on your part. For the protection of the AddFlag.com and other Members like yourself, if you do not agree with our Terms of Use, you cannot use our services.

16. Last Terms

These Terms of Use do not create an employment, agency, partnership, or joint venture relationship between you and us, the AddFlag.com. If you have not signed a separate agreement with us, these Terms of Use are the entire agreement between you and us. If there is any conflict between these Terms of Use and a signed written agreement between you and us, the signed agreement will control.

You agree that we may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms of Use, by email, regular mail, or postings on AddFlag.com website.

If in any circumstance, we do not apply or enforce any provision of these Terms of Use, it is not a waiver of that provision.

You understand that, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by us, you have no expectation of compensation for any activity, contribution, or idea that you provide to us, the community, or the AddFlag.com editions.

Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in these Terms of Use, we (the AddFlag.com owner) and you agree not to modify the applicable terms and requirements of any free license that is employed on the AddFlag.com editions when such free license is authorized by these Terms of Use.

These Terms of Use were written in English (U.S.). While we hope that translations of these Terms of Use are accurate, in the event of any differences in meaning between the original English version and a translation, the original English version takes precedence.

If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms of Use is found unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms of Use and will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and all other provisions of these Terms of Use will remain in full force and effect.

Thank You!

These Terms of Use went into effect on October 10, 2014
