Terms and Conditions of Use



GVN’s web-journals are a web-based service that allow users to create and update online journals. The journals can be updated through a web browser. Once registered with GVN journals, each user receives his or her own journal space to post text, data and messages. This Content may reside on GVN’s servers or on the servers of a third party.

The Global Volunteer Network (GVN) provides the following service to you, subject to these Terms of Service, which may be updated periodically without notice. By creating a journal, you signify you have read and accepted these terms of use. If you do not agree to these terms of use, do not create a journal. We want our volunteers to be able to produce journals that provide readers with a rich and accurate impression of the countries and communities that they are serving in. Content posted on this site may be automatically reproduced on the main Global Volunteer Network website, and quotes from it may also be used for promotion of GVN programs.

Material not permitted on journals includes but is not limited to:

* Content which directly criticises the activities and programs of the GVN and its partners. If you have complaints about your project, you need to discuss these directly with your program coordinator;
* Material that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive to another’s privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable;
* Unsolicited advertising of any service, goods, or forum;
* Content intended to interfere with another user’s use of the site;
* Any other material that is a violation of applicable state, federal, or international law.

The Global Volunteer Network reserves the right to edit or delete material that falls under these categories.

You agree that the GVN, in its sole discretion, may terminate your password, journal, or account, and remove and discard any content within the Service, for any reason, including and without limitation, the lack of use, or if GVN believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of the Terms Of Service. Any contracts, verbal or written or assumed, in conjunction with your deleted journal and all its parts, at the Global Volunteer Network’s discretion, will be terminated as well. The Global Volunteer Network may also in its sole discretion and at any time, discontinue providing the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice.

All content posted to the journals is the responsibility and property of the author. GVN is committed to keeping the Service in decent standing for all audiences but is not responsible for the monitoring or filtering of any journal content. Within the confines of international and local law, GVN will not place a limit on the type, or appropriateness of user content within journals. Those users posting material not suitable for all audiences must agree that they are fully responsible for all the content they have posted anywhere on the service. Should content be deemed illegal by such law having jurisdiction over the user, GVN is committed to submitting all necessary information to the proper authorities.

Should any content be reported to GVN as being offensive or inappropriate, GVN might call upon the author to retract, modify, or protect the content in question within a reasonable amount of time, as set forth by the GVN staff. Should the author fail to meet such a request from GVN staff, GVN has the full authority to terminate any such reported and verified offensive account holding such inappropriate content. GVN, however, is under no obligation to restrict or monitor journal Content in any way.

GVN claims no ownership or control over any Content posted by its users. The author retains all patent, trademark, and copyright to all Content posted within available fields, and is responsible for protecting those rights, but is not entitled to the help of the GVN staff in protecting such content.

You acknowledge that GVN does not pre-screen content, but that GVN and its designates shall have the right (but not the obligation) on their sole discretion to refuse or remove any content that is available through the Service. Without limiting the foregoing, GVN and its designates shall have the right to remove any content that violates the Terms of Service or is otherwise objectionable. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such content. Furthermore, GVN reserves the right to limit access to your journal, if found in violation of the Terms of Service, by removing the journal and related user information from the member directory, search engine, and all other methods used in conjunction with finding GVN’s users.
