GENERAL

This website is operated by Insights Inc. (the "Site Operator" or "Insights.US" or “Insights” or "We") for a person or an organization interested in getting advice from stakeholders (the "Site Owner"). The term "website" refers to this domain and any other domain, website or part of a website that is generated by the Site Operator, including Insights.US (the "Websites"). The term "users" refers to any persons using this website, directly or indirectly (the "Users" or "You"), including site owners and administrators.

Each website contains different calls for advice ("Projects"), and each project has a different community of stakeholders ("Participants"). Users authorized by site owners can launch new projects ("Project Owners", or "Owners" together with Site Owners), delegate their management privileges to other users ("Project Administrators") or define the users who will make decisions ("Decision Makers"). Projects might be open to everyone ("Public Projects") or restricted to selected users only ("Private Projects").

Websites include contents of different types, such as texts, documents, images, links, files, graphics, video and audio, code snippets and other materials ("Contents"). Our Privacy Policy explains the way we collect and use your content and information, and our Subscriber Agreement defines the rights & obligations of site owners. By visiting this website, as owner, administrator, participant or user, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy and our Subscriber Agreement ("Terms & Policies"). If you represent an organization, you declare to have the authority to bind the organization.

“Insights Inc.” is a US company, incorporated in Maryland, which licenses and operates this website with the permission of “Insights: Powering Collective Thinking Ltd”, an Israeli company, incorporated in Jerusalem (“Licensor”). We invite you to read our Impact Report. Our terms & policies are designated to any person or organization using these websites. Browsing our websites indicates your agreement to these rules. If you have any reservations, please discontinue your use of this website.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

REGISTERING TO A WEBSITE: You are allowed to register once with one email address only. Deliberately using another person's name that is not your own is prohibited by law as impersonation. Registration might link your personal information to earlier actions you've taken in the website, or to an existing personal information imported by owners or administrators to this website at an earlier stage. You can register on the site as a representative of a registered corporation, if you are authorized to represent it and its viewpoints. Some site owners might enable you to enter their websites without registration.

ADDING YOUR ADVICE: As a participant, you are encouraged to add your advice and upload relevant content: texts, documents, images, links, files, graphics, video and audio. When you add any content, it is a point of "no return": other participants can comment on it; it may be edited, deleted, grouped or not published at all. Your content may be kept by entities you do not know, and be used to create aggregations and insights.

PUBLISHING YOUR ADVICE: As a participant, you should be aware that adding content to the website is not a guarantee of its publication. If owners, operators, administrators or participants notice content that does not promote the goals of a project or a website, they have the full and sole right to decide whether to publish, edit or delete the content. They can delete or change your content either directly or by reporting it as inappropriate.

LAUNCHING YOUR PROJECT: Once you are granted a license to launch a site or a project, you can only upload contents that you have the full rights to use. The content of public projects may be used, presented and replicated by Insights in other places. It will also be available to search engines and the public. As site owner, you bare the sole responsibility for any content that your selected project owners upload.

INSIGHTS CURATION: The process of turning advice into insights involves several stages and collaboration of different participants. ANY information you write may be edited, sorted, graded, suspended, deleted, approved, published, grouped or managed in different ways. Sometimes you may be required or allowed to participate in the analysis. Sometimes these processes can be completed without your involvement or even without your knowledge.

PUBLIC SPACE: Our websites are "public spaces". Once you have chosen to enter a website, we cannot guarantee your anonymity or your privacy. Therefore, any content you add is visible to others (even in a private project!), and may be modified or amended to turn it into insights. Any action on the site is visible and may be documented. As described in our Privacy Policy, we might reveal your personal information as well.

COMMUNICATION: You will receive updates, invitations and questions via emails or texts. These messages can be sent by using information you provided or by using information uploaded from other records. By registering, you declare that you are willing to receive such messages. You can revoke your permission by clicking on the link at the bottom of the e-mails or by emailing support@insights.us. When you unsubscribe, it will only apply to messages that were not yet sent and to the specific website you unsubscribed from.

IMPORT RECORDS: Owners and administrators can import information on users and send them messages inviting them to take part in a project. Users who upload data bear full responsibility for using the information, and hereby declare that the records were legally obtained, that they can legally send these messages and that they are solely responsible for doing so. Any breach of these terms or any complaint by users, once reported to Insights.US, would result in the immediate suspension of the website. WE WILL NOT TOLERATE SPAM, AND WILL PROMPTLY INVESTIGATE COMPLAINTS ABOUT INAPPROPRIATE USE.

POLICY VIOLATION. If a site owner believes that a certain activity on a website violates our terms & policies and/or does not promote the purpose of the site, s/he can prevent users from using the website, cancel registration or reveal users' personal information if necessary. Insights might also initiate such an action. Users should be aware that Insights.US has the sole discretion to do so, without any prior notice or explanation.
