User-Generated Content

“User-Generated Content” as used in this Agreement means the video, text and image files which you and/or other users post, upload, link to and/or otherwise submit to the Site or Services.

While you own all of your own User-Generated Content, you hereby grant NJTP and its licensors a license to use and exploit your User-Generated Content.

You represent and warrant that you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents and permissions to grant these licenses to NJTP and other NJTP users. If you contribute any User-Generated Content to a collaborative editing platform (a “Wiki”), you understand and agree that the collaborative and open nature of these platforms may result in other users editing or deleting your User-Generated Content. In this case, your contributions will be saved in the “history” section of the edited page. You are also permitted to edit other users’ User-Generated Content if posted on a Wiki, as long as such edits conform to the Comment Policy stated below.

You acknowledge that NJTP does not have any obligation to monitor User-Generated Content that is uploaded, posted, submitted, linked to or otherwise transmitted using the Site or Services, for any purpose and, as a result, is not responsible for the accuracy, completeness, appropriateness, legality or applicability of User-Generated Content or anything said, depicted or written by users, including, without limitation, any information obtained by using the Site or Services or any edits made by other users to User-Generated Content which you have posted to a Wiki. NJTP does not endorse any User-Generated Content or any opinion, recommendation or advice expressed therein and you agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against NJTP with respect thereto.

NJTP will have the right to investigate and prosecute violations of any of the above, including intellectual property rights infringement and Site security issues, to the fullest extent of the law.

You acknowledge that NJTP has the right to monitor your access to or use of the Site, Content, Services and User-Generated Content for the purpose of operating the Site, to ensure your compliance with these Terms of Service, or to comply with applicable law or the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency or other governmental body.


Comment Policy

NJTP is designed as a place where users can freely discuss political issues with each other and to collaboratively contribute to the resources on the site. In order to ensure high-quality discussion and contributions, we have some simple and common-sense rules to follow. Failure to abide by these rules may result in a warning by NJTP staff or volunteer moderators, or in some instances (for particularly grievous offenses or after repeated warnings), suspension or termination of your commenting privileges, your account, or access to NJTP itself.

  • Do not harass, stalk, bully, or otherwise abuse any user on NJTP. While we welcome healthy debate, there is a clear line between enthusiastic discussion and “flaming”. When in doubt, try to take a step back and see if your actions might be construed as an attack on someone as opposed to healthy disagreement. Remember, if someone harasses you, don’t harass them back – simply report the offending content to us.
  • Do not post any content which could be construed as hate speech – this includes racism, sexism, homophobia, and other such content which may advocate bigotry.
  • Keep posts on-topic. Discussion should remain centered around the topic of the page in question. While discussions can evolve over time, please try to keep your comments related to the original topic.
  • Do not vandalize the site. This can include uploading objectionable content to your profile, maliciously deleting other users’ contributions or making inappropriate edits to the Wiki, and other such actions.
  • Do not spam the site. Repeatedly posting identical comments (“flooding”), posting commercial messages, or the like are not conducive to the site’s purpose and we will respond accordingly.
  • Do not post any content which is invasive of another person’s privacy. This includes posting an individual’s non-public email address, telephone number, address, or other personal details. For instance, posting a Senator’s public office telephone number is acceptable; posting their home telephone number is not.



Digital Millennium Copyright Act Compliance

You will only upload, post, submit or otherwise transmit User-Generated Content: (i) that you have the lawful right to use, copy, distribute, transmit, or display; and (ii) that does not infringe the intellectual property rights or violate the privacy rights of any third party (including, without limitation, copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, or other intellectual property right, or moral right or right of publicity). NJTP has adopted and implemented a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of the accounts of users who repeatedly infringe or are believed to be or are charged with repeatedly infringing the rights of copyright holders.
