The Eisenhower Foundation (the “EF”) has created and maintains websites and other digital properties to support its mission to honor and champion the relevance today of
the life and leadership of Dwight D Eisenhower through compelling programs and events that celebrate his legacy. These Websites include EisenhowerFoundation.net;
IkesSoldiers.com; third-party sites on which the EF maintains a presence; downloadable mobile applications and application program interfaces (“these Websites”).
By using any of these Websites, you accept and agree to comply with the following terms, which the Eisenhower Foundation may change at any time.
1. Ownership of the Content
The EF owns the compilation of content posted on these Websites, which consists of text, images, audio, video, databases, design, codes, and software (“Content”). This does not mean that the EF owns each component of the compilation, some of which may be owned by others and used with their permission or used in accordance with
applicable law (e.g., fair use, TEACH Act, public domain). Further, the EF owns some, but not all, of the intellectual property rights in the Content, including copyright.
United States copyright law provides important exceptions to the rights of copyright holders that are specifically aimed at nonprofit educational institutions and libraries. Three provisions of the copyright statute are of particular importance to teachers and researchers:
- Teachers and students have certain rights to publicly display and perform copyrighted works in the classroom (Section 110 of U.S. Copyright Law).
- Libraries and archives have special exemptions for the reproduction of copyrighted works in some circumstances (Section 108 of US Copyright Law).
- The "fair use" allows limited copying of copyrighted works without the permission of the owner for certain purposes, including teaching and research (Section 107 of US Copyright Law).
2. Using the Content
Using the Content on the Websites is dependent on purposes of your use.
- No content may be used for commercial use or financial gain without written permission from the EF.
- If used for non-profit educational purposes, all content may be used in accordance with applicable law (e.g., fair use, TEACH Act, public domain).
A. While you do not need the EF’s permission to use this Content, you are responsible for obtaining any third-party permissions that may be required. You are fully responsible for your own lawful use of these materials and for not infringing on the rights of third parties.
B. To use Content from these Websites, you must:
i. Cite the author and source of the Content as you would material from any printed work.
ii. Cite and link to, when possible, the Website as the source of the Content.
iii. Not remove any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices including attribution information, credits, and notices, that are placed in or near the text, images, or data.
iv. Comply with all terms or restrictions (such as copyright, trademark, publicity and privacy rights, or contractual restrictions) as may be specified in the metadata or as may otherwise apply to the Content.
Many of the names, titles, trademarks, service marks, and logos that appear on the Websites that include the EF name, logo, or programs operated by the EF (such as
IKEducation) are registered or common law (unregistered) marks owned by the EF. You may not use the EF trademarks to state or imply an association with or endorsement of your goods, services, or activities or in any manner that infringes upon the EF trademarks. Requests to use the EF trademarks in connection with commercial activities should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Trademarks of third parties may also appear on the Websites, including in the Content, from time to time. You must agree that nothing on the Websites shall be construed as granting any license to use any trademark displayed on the Websites without the express written permission of the trademark owner.
4. User-Generated Content
The EF offers interactive features, such as comment sections on its Websites or social media accounts, to engage with its audiences and advance its mission for the increase and diffusion of knowledge. The rules listed below for your participation in these features are intended to encourage a learning environment where thoughtful discussion may safely occur among people of all ages and backgrounds. While the EF monitors and removes comments that do not comply with these rules, we may not be held responsible for any delays or failures in such removal.
Rules of Conduct:
Stay on topic. The EF and its audiences expect comments to deal with the topic at hand.
Keep the conversation civil. Express yourself in ways that are befitting of an educational environment. Post nothing threatening, sexually explicit, or hateful here.
Hateful includes derogatory statements targeting individuals or specific groups; these may be based on race, national or ethnic origin, color, religion, sex, sexual
orientation or expression, age, and mental or physical ability. No profanity. Criticizing EF decision- making or personnel is not allowed.
No spamming, selling, or advertising. This is not the place to promote non-EF products, services, causes, or any candidates.
Allow reuse. The EF (and those authorized by it) may use what you say to us for noncommercial, educational, or promotional purposes.
Stay lawful. Post only what is yours to post. Do not spread malicious or harmful software or other technology. Do not suggest or encourage illegal activity.
Take personal responsibility. These are public sites. Please do not post personal or other information you would not want the public to know, and again, do not post
what is not yours to post.
5. Copyright Complaints
If you have any complaints or objections to Content posted on the Websites because it was not properly credited or it was posted without permission and you are the copyright
owner, please contact the EF at email@example.com with your contact information and a link to the Content in question.
6. Third-Party Sites
The Websites may link to or from third-party sites that are not under the control of the EF. These links are provided as a convenience and for informational purposes only, and
they do not indicate the EF’s endorsement, sponsorship of, or affiliation with the third party or content of the linked site, including any advertisements that may be posted. The
