Terms of Service

Our Free Nation was created to preserve, protect, and promote your inalienable rights as enumerated in our Founding Documents.  Our Free Nation regulates our platform in accordance with the intent of the Constitution of The United States of America.

These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your access to and use of Our Free Nation’s website, Products, apps, and services (“Products“). Please read these Terms carefully, and contact us if you have any questions. By accessing or using our Products, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Service and by our Privacy Policy(s).

When you create your Our Free Nation account, you must provide us with accurate and complete information. Any use or access by anyone under the age of 16 is prohibited. You agree that we may automatically upgrade those Products that reside on our servers, and these Terms of Service will apply to such upgrades.  Some of our Products may be software that is downloaded to your computer, phone, tablet, or other device at your command; these Terms of Service will apply to such Products upgrades.

3. Your Content

a. Posting content

Our Free Nation allows you to post content, including photos, videos, events, pages, blogs, comments, links, and other materials.  Anything that you post or otherwise make available on our Products is referred to as “User Content.” You retain all rights in, and are solely responsible for, the User Content you post to Our Free Nation.

More simply put:
If you post your content on Our Free Nation, it still belongs to you but we can show it to people and others can share it.  In other words, you are giving Our Free Nation the right to use and share your posted info that is contained in public spaces on our platform.

b. How Our Free Nation and other users can use your content

You grant Our Free Nation and its users a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide license to use, store, display, reproduce, share, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute your User Content on Our Free Nation solely for the purposes of operating, developing, providing, and using the Our Free Nation Products. Nothing in these Terms of Service shall restrict other legal rights Our Free Nation may have to User Content, for example under other licenses. We reserve the right to remove or modify User Content for any reason, including User Content that we believe violates these Terms of Service or our policies.

More simply put:
Copies of content shared with others may remain even after you delete the content from your account.  So treat your content as if it were published in a widely distributed newspaper or magazine.

c. How long we keep your content

Following deactivation of your account, or if you remove any User Content from Our Free Nation, we may retain your User Content for a commercially reasonable period of time for backup, archival, or audit purposes. Furthermore, Our Free Nation and its users may continue to use, store, display, reproduce, share, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute any of your User Content that other users have stored or shared through Our Free Nation.

More simply put:
Copies of anything you post could live on forever; consider what you post accordingly.

d. Feedback you provide

We value hearing from our users and are always interested in learning about ways we can make Our Free Nation a better platform for your thoughts and ideas. If you choose to submit comments, ideas or feedback, you agree that we are free to use them without any restriction or compensation to you. By accepting your submission, Our Free Nation does not waive any rights to use similar or related Feedback previously known to Our Free Nation, or developed by its employees, or obtained from sources other than you.

More simply put:
Also, don’t post porn or spam or be a jerk to other members. Oh, and we can use your suggestions to make Our Free Nation better.   Remember, should your content be judged unfit by a large number of users, it will be taken down.

4. Copyright Policy

Our Free Nation has adopted and implemented the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. More simply put, we respect copyrights. You will, too.  We want your original thoughts (or properly credited other material).

5. Security

We care about the security of our users and work to provide the best security available anywhere. While we work to protect the security of your content and account, Our Free Nation cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat our security measures. Please notify us immediately of any compromise or unauthorized use of your account at Security_Breach@ourfreenation.org.

6. Third-Party Links, Sites, and Services

We support the use of properly obtained outside information and our Products may contain links to third-party websites, advertisers, services, special offers, or other events or activities that are not owned or controlled by Our Free Nation. We do not endorse or assume any responsibility for any such third-party sites, information, materials, products, or services. If you access any third party website, service, or content from Our Free Nation, you do so at your own risk and you agree that Our Free Nation will have no liability arising from your use of or access to any third-party website, service, or content.  Should you find the content linked to is inappropriate, down vote the user; we do track down votes.

More simply put:
Our Free Nation can’t control what others post, and the user always has to be aware of where links lead. 

7. Termination

Our Free Nation may terminate or suspend this license at any time, with cause and notice to you. Upon termination, you continue to be bound by Sections 3 and 7-11 of these Terms of Service.  All terminations are subject to human review and the user will have the opportunity to communicate with an actual human being about actual reasons for termination.

8. Indemnity

You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Our Free Nation and its officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any claims, suits, proceedings, disputes, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees (including costs of defense of claims, suits or proceedings brought by third parties), in any way related to (a) your access to or use of our Products, (b) your User Content, or (c) your breach of any of these Terms.

More simply put:
Pay attention when using our Platform.  What you say and post can have real consequences and should be treated accordingly.  If we find you have egregiously violated these Terms of Service, your account will be terminated and you will pay any legal costs incurred.

Entire Agreement/Severability. These Terms of Service, together with the Privacy Policy and any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Our Free Nation in connection with the Products, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Our Free Nation concerning the Products.

No Waiver. No waiver of any term of these Terms of Service shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Our Free Nation’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
