These terms of service covers your use of the TelcoProfessionals service for creating and enjoying social communities on the TelcoProfessionals Platform.

By joining TelcoProfessionals, creating, or using your profile built on www.telcoprofessionals.com, you are agreeing to the following terms of service (“Terms of Service” or “Terms”).

1                     Description & Definitions

TelcoProfessionals offers a platform for creating your own user profile and provides access to the TelcoProfessionals community (“Community”). The following is designed to provide you with our rules, terms of use. We have a separate Community Guidelines document that focuses more on community rules. We encourage you to read that document as well.

2                     Social Communities or Communities (SC)

SC’s are forums, groups or blog postings and are created by members or by us and provided, through the use of the TelcoProfessionals platform, for members to connect with other members online. Social Communities include features such as member profiles, friends, comments, recommendations, forums, photo sharing, video sharing, reviews, ratings, people matching, and events, among others.

3                     Users | Members

Users and members are people or businesses who register on TelcoProfessionals to create, find, visit, use, and contribute to one or more community, which can include posting or responding to content.

4                     Content

Content means any work of authorship (other than the code and the user interface of a social community), including member profiles, comments, recommendations, forums, photos, videos, sounds, images, text, files, listings, postings, messages, or other materials posted on or transmitted through the TelcoProfessionals platform or through any community. Members upload content to social communities. Social communities, in turn, control content. If the community creator or member designates the community as private, any content submitted to that community will be deemed to be private content. Private content is licensed for use only within the community into which it is posted. Public content is available in the community in which it is posted.

5                     Tags

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

6                     Ownership of Content

TelcoProfessionals does not claim any ownership rights in the content members provide. You, as a community member, own the content you create and upload (“your content”). After posting your content, you continue to retain all ownership rights in such content, and you continue to have the right to use your content in any way you choose, provided, the content does not violate any of the covenants of the TelcoProfessionals Community Guidelines.

We also want to encourage sharing of content between members and communities across the TelcoProfessionals network. To this end, by uploading content to a forum, group, blog or comment in which the content is designated as public content, you grant TelcoProfessionals and all other members a nonexclusive license to reproduce, create derivative works of, distribute, publicly perform, and publicly display such content on the condition that the content is attributed in a manner specified by its author, if at all (a “Public Content License”).

If you upload content that is designated private content, you grant to TelcoProfessionals and all TelcoProfessionals members a nonexclusive license to reproduce, distribute, publicly perform, and publicly display such content on that community (including any RSS feeds and other distribution that is part of such community) (a “Private Content License”).

By using TelcoProfessionals, you agree to provide TelcoProfessionals a non-exclusive license to reproduce, distribute, publicly perform and display such content online or offline to generally promote TelcoProfessionals in advertising or other forums.

Unless you expressly state alternative applicable license terms in connection with your content submission, the Public Content License will apply by default to public content and the Private Content License will apply by default to private content.

We should also mention that you are responsible for making sure that you have all rights in the content you post that are necessary for you to grant everyone either the Public Content License or the Private Content License. (We'll cover this in more detail later.)

Lastly, if a forum, group, any rich media or blog post is deleted, the content associated with that member may also be deleted at the discretion of the Community Manager. We would encourage you to be sure you are comfortable with this possibility before publishing content on TelcoProfessionals.
