IV. Rights and Responsibilities Regarding Content Posted on the Site or Through LN Services
a.) License for Content Submitted to Lifenaut.com
LN does not claim any ownership rights in the Content that You display or publish (“post”) on the Site or through the LN Services. After posting Content to the Site or through LN Services, You continue to retain all ownership rights in such Content and continue to have the right to use it in any way You choose. By posting Your Content on the Site or through the LN Services, however, You hereby grant to LN a non-exclusive, limited license to use, modify, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce, and distribute such Content solely on the Site and through LN Services (meaning You are free to license Your Content to anyone else in addition to LN).
Without this license, LN would be unable to provide certain LN Services. For example, without the right to modify Lifenaut Content, LN would not be able to digitally compress music files that Lifenauts submit or otherwise format Content to satisfy certain technical requirements. Without the right to publicly perform Lifenaut Content, LN could not allow Visitors and Lifenauts to listen to music posted by other Lifenauts to their Accounts. The license you grant to LN is fully-paid and royalty-free (meaning that LN is not required to pay You for the use on LN Services of the Content that You post), sublicensable (so that LN is able to use its affiliates and subcontractors such as Internet content delivery networks to provide the LN Services), and worldwide (because the Internet and the LN Services are global in reach). This license will terminate at the time You remove Your Content from LN. This license does not grant LN the right to sell or license Your Content, nor does the license grant LN the right to distribute Your Content outside of the LN Services.
b.) Prohibited Content
The following is a partial list of the kind of Content that is illegal or prohibited to post on the Site or through the LN Services. Prohibited Content includes, but is not limited to Content that LN, in its sole discretion, reasonably believes:
* 1. is patently offensive and promotes racism, bigotry, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual;
* 2. harasses or advocates harassment of another person;
* 3. exploits people in a sexual or violent manner;
* 4. contains pornography, violence, or offensive subject matter or contains a link to an adult website;
* 5. solicits personal information from anyone under 13;
* 6. promotes information that is false or misleading or promotes illegal activities or conduct that is abusive, threatening, obscene, defamatory or libelous;
* 7. promotes an illegal or unauthorized copy of another person’s copyrighted work, such as providing pirated computer programs or links to them, providing information to circumvent manufacture-installed copy-protect devices, or providing pirated music or links to pirated music files;
* 8. includes a photograph of another person that you have posted without that person’s consent;
* 9. includes the medical/health/genetic records of individuals from whom no authorization to post such information has been obtained.
c.) Prohibited Activities
The following is a partial list of the kind of activity that is illegal or prohibited on the Lifenaut.com Website and through your use of the Lifenaut.com Services. Prohibited activity includes, but is not limited to:
* 1. criminal or tortious activity, including child pornography, fraud, trafficking in obscene material, drug dealing, gambling, harassment, stalking, spamming, spimming, sending of viruses or other harmful files, copyright infringement, patent infringement, or theft of trade secrets;
* 2. covering or obscuring the banner advertisements on your online personal profile page, or any LN page via HTML/CSS or any other means;
* 3. any automated use of the system, such as using scripts to add Lifenauts or send comments or messages;
* 4. interfering with, disrupting, or creating an undue burden on the LN Services or the networks or services connected to the LN Services;
* 5. attempting to impersonate another Lifenaut or person;
* 6. using the Account, username, or password of another Lifenaut at any time or disclosing your password to any third party or permitting any third party to access your account;
* 7. selling or otherwise transferring your Account;
* 8. using any information obtained from the LN Services in order to harass, abuse, or harm another person;
* 9. displaying an advertisement on your online personal profile, or accepting payment or anything of value from a third person in exchange for your performing any commercial activity on or through the LN Services on behalf of that person; or
* 10. using the LN Services in a manner inconsistent with any and all applicable laws and regulations.
d.) Removal of Lifenaut Content/Termination of Accounts
LN may remove any Content that, in its sole judgment, violates this Agreement or may be offensive, illegal or violate the rights, harm, or threaten the safety of any person. LN may also terminate the Accounts of Lifenauts and prevent their further access to the Site for violating these terms or the law. LN also reserves the right to investigate and take appropriate legal action against anyone who, in LN’s sole discretion, violates in subsections (b) and (c) of this Section, including without limitation, reporting such violations to law enforcement authorities. The violation of any of the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement shall result in the immediate revocation of Your right or license to use the Site Material and obligates You to immediately destroy any copies of the Site Material in Your possession.
Despite the prohibitions in subsections (b) and (c) of this Section, Content provided by other LN Lifenauts (for instance, in their online personal profiles) may contain inaccurate, inappropriate, offensive or sexually explicit material, products, services or activities, and LN assumes no responsibility for monitoring the LN Services for inappropriate Content or conduct. If at any time LN chooses, in its sole discretion, to monitor the Site or LN Services, LN nonetheless assumes no responsibility for the Content, no obligation to modify or remove any inappropriate Content, and no responsibility for the conduct of the Lifenaut or Visitor submitting any such Content.

LN assumes no responsibility sfor the use or misuse of any medical/health/genetic records or other Content You post to Your Account on the Site or through LN Services. LN has no obligation to use, or solicit/enable others to use, for any purpose, any medical/health/genetic records or other Content You post to Your Account on the Site or through LN Services.
Content is not reviewed by LN prior to posting and does not reflect the opinions or policies of LN. LN makes no warranties, express or implied, as to the Content or to the accuracy and reliability of the Content or any material or information that You transmit to other Lifenauts. LN cannot be responsible for the security or privacy of Your Content, nor does LN guarantee the security or privacy of Your Content. For more information, see our Privacy Policy.
f.) Retention of Lifenaut Content
LN shall retain any Content You post to Your Account on the Site or through LN Services for the duration of your Lifenaut status unless LN deems such Content to be violative of this Agreement or until such time as You decide to remove such Content from Your Account. Content posted to Your Account that LN deems to be in violation of this Agreement shall be immediately and permanently deleted. Termination of Your Lifenaut status, whether done by You or LN, shall result in the immediate and permanent deletion of any Content You have posted to Your Account.
Unless LN is instructed by You to the contrary, Your Lifenaut status will not terminate upon Your physical death. LN, therefore, will retain any Content remaining in Your Account after Your physical death in perpetuity. Provisions for the termination of Your Account by LN upon Your physical death must be contained in a will or other testamentary document properly executed by You.

IX. Miscellaneous
This Web Site originates from the State of Vermont. LN does not claim that the Site Materials on this Web Site are appropriate or may be used outside of the United States. Access to the Site Materials by certain persons or in certain countries may not be lawful. If You access the Web Site from outside of the United States, You do so at Your own risk and are responsible for compliance with the laws of Your jurisdiction.
Research Project
The purpose of this website is to test the Terasem Hypotheses that (1) a
conscious analog of a person may be created by combining sufficiently
detailed data about the person (“mindfile”) organized at this website with
future consciousness software (“mindware”), and (2) that such conscious
analog can be downloaded into a biological or nanotechnological body to
provide life experiences comparable to those of typically birthed humans.
If even the first part of the two Terasem Hypothseses is shown to be true,
the conscious analogs will be independent persons with rights and
obligations dependent upon their capabilities.
I hereby understand and accept that by creating a mindfile at this website I
am participating in a test of the Terasem Hypotheses and that a result of
this participation may be the creation of one or more new legally
independent persons whose memory consists of the mindfiles I create, and
whose consciousness arises from those mindfiles.
I hereby waive any and all claims of liability against Terasem, its agents,
employees, principals or management, or against any conscious analogs that
may arise from my participation in testing the Terasem Hypotheses, for any
acts or ommissions of Terasem or the conscious analogs in connection
(directly or indirectly) with testing, proving or validating the Terasem
Hypotheses.
If you DO NOT AGREE you are permitted to visit mindfiles on this site but
you will be unable to create a mindfile.

IV. Rights and Responsibilities Regarding Content Posted on the Site or Through LN Services
a.) License for Content Submitted to Lifenaut.com
LN does not claim any ownership rights in the Content that You display or publish (“post”) on the Site or through the LN Services. After posting Content to the Site or through LN Services, You continue to retain all ownership rights in such Content and continue to have the right to use it in any way You choose. By posting Your Content on the Site or through the LN Services, however, You hereby grant to LN a non-exclusive, limited license to use, modify, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce, and distribute such Content solely on the Site and through LN Services (meaning You are free to license Your Content to anyone else in addition to LN).
Without this license, LN would be unable to provide certain LN Services. For example, without the right to modify Lifenaut Content, LN would not be able to digitally compress music files that Lifenauts submit or otherwise format Content to satisfy certain technical requirements. Without the right to publicly perform Lifenaut Content, LN could not allow Visitors and Lifenauts to listen to music posted by other Lifenauts to their Accounts. The license you grant to LN is fully-paid and royalty-free (meaning that LN is not required to pay You for the use on LN Services of the Content that You post), sublicensable (so that LN is able to use its affiliates and subcontractors such as Internet content delivery networks to provide the LN Services), and worldwide (because the Internet and the LN Services are global in reach). This license will terminate at the time You remove Your Content from LN. This license does not grant LN the right to sell or license Your Content, nor does the license grant LN the right to distribute Your Content outside of the LN Services.
b.) Prohibited Content
The following is a partial list of the kind of Content that is illegal or prohibited to post on the Site or through the LN Services. Prohibited Content includes, but is not limited to Content that LN, in its sole discretion, reasonably believes:
* 1. is patently offensive and promotes racism, bigotry, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual;    * 2. harasses or advocates harassment of another person;    * 3. exploits people in a sexual or violent manner;    * 4. contains pornography, violence, or offensive subject matter or contains a link to an adult website;    * 5. solicits personal information from anyone under 13;    * 6. promotes information that is false or misleading or promotes illegal activities or conduct that is abusive, threatening, obscene, defamatory or libelous;    * 7. promotes an illegal or unauthorized copy of another person’s copyrighted work, such as providing pirated computer programs or links to them, providing information to circumvent manufacture-installed copy-protect devices, or providing pirated music or links to pirated music files;    * 8. includes a photograph of another person that you have posted without that person’s consent;    * 9. includes the medical/health/genetic records of individuals from whom no authorization to post such information has been obtained. 
c.) Prohibited Activities
The following is a partial list of the kind of activity that is illegal or prohibited on the Lifenaut.com Website and through your use of the Lifenaut.com Services. Prohibited activity includes, but is not limited to:
* 1. criminal or tortious activity, including child pornography, fraud, trafficking in obscene material, drug dealing, gambling, harassment, stalking, spamming, spimming, sending of viruses or other harmful files, copyright infringement, patent infringement, or theft of trade secrets;    * 2. covering or obscuring the banner advertisements on your online personal profile page, or any LN page via HTML/CSS or any other means;    * 3. any automated use of the system, such as using scripts to add Lifenauts or send comments or messages;    * 4. interfering with, disrupting, or creating an undue burden on the LN Services or the networks or services connected to the LN Services;    * 5. attempting to impersonate another Lifenaut or person;    * 6. using the Account, username, or password of another Lifenaut at any time or disclosing your password to any third party or permitting any third party to access your account;    * 7. selling or otherwise transferring your Account;    * 8. using any information obtained from the LN Services in order to harass, abuse, or harm another person;    * 9. displaying an advertisement on your online personal profile, or accepting payment or anything of value from a third person in exchange for your performing any commercial activity on or through the LN Services on behalf of that person; or    * 10. using the LN Services in a manner inconsistent with any and all applicable laws and regulations. 
d.) Removal of Lifenaut Content/Termination of Accounts
LN may remove any Content that, in its sole judgment, violates this Agreement or may be offensive, illegal or violate the rights, harm, or threaten the safety of any person. LN may also terminate the Accounts of Lifenauts and prevent their further access to the Site for violating these terms or the law. LN also reserves the right to investigate and take appropriate legal action against anyone who, in LN’s sole discretion, violates in subsections (b) and (c) of this Section, including without limitation, reporting such violations to law enforcement authorities. The violation of any of the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement shall result in the immediate revocation of Your right or license to use the Site Material and obligates You to immediately destroy any copies of the Site Material in Your possession.
Despite the prohibitions in subsections (b) and (c) of this Section, Content provided by other LN Lifenauts (for instance, in their online personal profiles) may contain inaccurate, inappropriate, offensive or sexually explicit material, products, services or activities, and LN assumes no responsibility for monitoring the LN Services for inappropriate Content or conduct. If at any time LN chooses, in its sole discretion, to monitor the Site or LN Services, LN nonetheless assumes no responsibility for the Content, no obligation to modify or remove any inappropriate Content, and no responsibility for the conduct of the Lifenaut or Visitor submitting any such Content.

Content is not reviewed by LN prior to posting and does not reflect the opinions or policies of LN. LN makes no warranties, express or implied, as to the Content or to the accuracy and reliability of the Content or any material or information that You transmit to other Lifenauts. LN cannot be responsible for the security or privacy of Your Content, nor does LN guarantee the security or privacy of Your Content. For more information, see our Privacy Policy.
f.) Retention of Lifenaut Content
LN shall retain any Content You post to Your Account on the Site or through LN Services for the duration of your Lifenaut status unless LN deems such Content to be violative of this Agreement or until such time as You decide to remove such Content from Your Account. Content posted to Your Account that LN deems to be in violation of this Agreement shall be immediately and permanently deleted. Termination of Your Lifenaut status, whether done by You or LN, shall result in the immediate and permanent deletion of any Content You have posted to Your Account.
Unless LN is instructed by You to the contrary, Your Lifenaut status will not terminate upon Your physical death.

Provisions for the termination of Your Account by LN upon Your physical death must be contained in a will or other testamentary document properly executed by You.

Research Project
The purpose of this website is to test the Terasem Hypotheses that (1) aconscious analog of a person may be created by combining sufficientlydetailed data about the person (“mindfile”) organized at this website withfuture consciousness software (“mindware”), and (2) that such consciousanalog can be downloaded into a biological or nanotechnological body toprovide life experiences comparable to those of typically birthed humans.
If even the first part of the two Terasem Hypothseses is shown to be true,the conscious analogs will be independent persons with rights andobligations dependent upon their capabilities.
I hereby understand and accept that by creating a mindfile at this website Iam participating in a test of the Terasem Hypotheses and that a result ofthis participation may be the creation of one or more new legallyindependent persons whose memory consists of the mindfiles I create, andwhose consciousness arises from those mindfiles.
I hereby waive any and all claims of liability against Terasem, its agents,employees, principals or management, or against any conscious analogs thatmay arise from my participation in testing the Terasem Hypotheses, for anyacts or ommissions of Terasem or the conscious analogs in connection(directly or indirectly) with testing, proving or validating the TerasemHypotheses.
If you DO NOT AGREE you are permitted to visit mindfiles on this site butyou will be unable to create a mindfile.
