TOS Agreement (short version)

  • Short version used for agreement by members at first login (updated 28th January 2018)


    To join the Research Cooperative, please accept the following abridged terms of service. See full text in our "Terms of Service" in Documentation.   Thank you.

    1. Applicability:

     This agreement applies to your free, regular membership of the Research Cooperative.

    2. Profile and Content Visibility

    Content that you publish on the  Research Cooperative, including your personal profile page,  will be automatically visible to all visitors.  You may ask to have your account and profile pages deleted, and all content removed, at any time (see "Close my account" tab in Home menu).

    3. Privacy

    Please do not publish your personal email address. If you do, it is best to disguise it in a way that discourages automated copying by unknown third parties.  Email addresses provided when creating a member account at the Research Cooperative  are only visible to  site administrators, and may be used by Admin for direct communication with members, or to test that a member account is active.

    4. Private Notes

    Members can send private notes to each other, using our internal messaging system. The notes will be forwarded (a)  without the  destination email address being shown to sender, and (b) without the sender email address being shown to recipient. 

    Private notes are not seen by Admin, but are subject to this Agreement (see full Agreement text). If you receive notes that are offensive, spam, or otherwise contrary to the aims of our network, please inform Admin as soon as possible.

    Please check your account settings to manage how others can communicate with you (look under your chosen profile name in the main menu,  after log in ). When you use the "Follow" button to follow another member, that member will be able to send you private notes. You can "Unfollow" other members at any time.

    5.  Copyright and Content Use

    The design and content of this website are copyright of The Research Cooperative, unless contributed by an identified member or obtained from another source (third party) by the Research Cooperative or a member. 

    Author rights and copyright for content contributed by a member (or obtained from another source) belong to the member (or the other source).

    The Research Cooperative is licensed under a  Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 Unported License

    6. Cost and Continuity of Service

    Membership of the The Research Cooperative is free for all regular members. The Research Cooperative reserves the right to close any member account, or all member accounts, at any time for any reason. We have provided continuous service since 2001 and plan to provide continuous service into the forseeable future. (Short version updated 28th Jan. 2018)
