Account Terms

Account Controls

Users

Subject to these Terms, you retain ultimate administrative control over your User Account and the Content within it.

Organizations

The owner of an Organization that was created under these Terms has ultimate administrative control over that Organization and the Content within it. Within the Service, an owner can manage User access to the Organization’s data and projects. An Organization may have multiple owners, but there must be at least one User Account designated as an owner of an Organization. If you are the owner of an Organization under these Terms, we consider you responsible for the actions that are performed on or through that Organization.

Required Information

You must provide a valid email address in order to complete the signup process. Any other information requested, such as your real name and organization, are optional, unless you are accepting these terms on behalf of a legal entity (in which case we need more information about the legal entity) or if you opt for a paid Account, in which case additional information will be necessary for billing purposes. Additional information may be required for the new version of the Website.

Account Requirements

There are several requirements for Holistic User Accounts:

  • You must be a human to create an Account. Accounts registered by bots or other automated methods are not permitted. A machine account is an Account set up by an individual human who accepts the Terms on behalf of the Account, provides a valid email address, and is responsible for its actions. A machine account is used exclusively for performing automated tasks. We do not permit machine accounts.
  • One person or legal entity may maintain no more than one free Account.
  • You must be 13 or older. If we learn of any User under the age of 13, we will terminate that User’s Account immediately. If you are a resident of a country outside the United States, your country’s minimum age may be older; in such a case, you are responsible for complying with your country’s laws.
  • Your login may only be used by one person — i.e., a single login may not be shared by multiple people unless they are part of a single Organization and using the services as the Organization. We reserve the right to limit the use of the Holistic Service to a set number of accounts.
  • You may not use Holistic in violation of export control or sanctions laws of any applicable jurisdiction.

User Account Security

You are responsible for keeping your Account secure while you use our Service.

  • You are responsible for all content posted and activity that occurs under your Account (even when content is posted by others who have access to your Account).
  • You are responsible for maintaining the security of your Account and password. Holistic cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
  • You will promptly notify Holistic if you become aware of any unauthorized use of, or access to, our Service through your Account, including any unauthorized use of your password or Account.

Additional Terms

In some situations, third parties' terms may apply to your use of Holistic Service. For example, you may be a member of an organization with its own terms or license agreements; or you may use an application that integrates with Holistic. Please be aware that while these Terms are our full agreement with you, other parties' terms govern their relationships with you.

  • is libelous, defamatory, or fraudulent;

  • harass, abuse, threaten, or incite violence towards any individual or group, including Holistic Data Corp. employees, officers, and agents, or other Holistic Users;

  • impersonate any person or entity, including any of our employees or representatives, including through false association with Holistic and/or Holistic Data Corp., or by fraudulently misrepresenting your identity or site's purpose; or
  • violate the privacy of any third party, such as by posting another person's personal information without consent.

Service Usage Limits

You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any portion of the Service, use of the Service, or access to the Service without Holistic's express written permission .

Scraping

Scraping refers to extracting data from our Website via an automated process, such as a bot or webcrawler. It does not refer to the collection of information through Holistic's API. You may scrape the website for the following reasons:

  • Researchers may scrape public, non-personal information from Holistic for research purposes, only if any publications resulting from that research are open access.
  • Archivists may scrape Holistic for public data for archival purposes

You may not scrape Holistic for spamming purposes, including for the purposes of selling Holistic users' personal information, such as to recruiters, headhunters, and job boards. All use of data gathered through Website scraping must comply with our Privacy Policy.

Privacy

Misuse of Holistic Users' Personal Information is prohibited.

Any person, entity, or service collecting data from Holistic must comply with our Privacy Policy, particularly in regard to the collection of our Users' Personal Information (as defined in our Privacy Policy). If you collect any Holistic User's Personal Information, you agree that you will only use the Personal Information you gather for the purpose for which our User has authorized it. You agree that you will reasonably secure any Personal Information you have gathered from Holistic, and you will respond promptly to complaints, removal requests, and do not contact requests from Holistic Data Corp. and/or Holistic Users.

Excessive Bandwidth Use

If we determine your bandwidth usage to be significantly excessive in relation to other Holistic users, we reserve the right to suspend your Account or limit your ability to take up unreasonable proportions of Holistic UI bandwidth until you reduce your bandwidth consumption.

User Protection

You agree not to engage in activity that significantly harms our Users. We will resolve disputes in favor of protecting our Users as a whole.

User-Generated Content

Responsibility for User-Generated Content

You may create or upload User-Generated Content while using the Service. You are solely responsible for the content of, and for any harm resulting from, any User-Generated Content that you post, upload, link to or otherwise make available via the Service, regardless of the form of that Content. We are not responsible for any public display or misuse of your User-Generated Content.

Holistic May Remove Content

We do not pre-screen User-Generated Content, but we have the right (though not the obligation) to refuse or remove any User-Generated Content that, in our sole discretion, violates any laws or Holistic terms or policies.

Ownership of Content, Right to Post, and License Grants

You retain ownership of and responsibility for Your Content. If you're uploading any Content you did not create yourself or do not own the rights to, you agree that you are responsible for any Content you share, that you will only submit Content that you have the right to upload, and that you will fully comply with any third-party licenses relating to Content you manage.

Because you retain ownership of and responsibility for Your Content, we need you to grant us — and other Holistic Users — certain legal permissions, listed below. These license grants apply to Your Content. If you upload Content that already comes with a license granting Holistic the permissions we need to run our Service, no additional license is required. You understand that you will not receive any payment for any of these granted rights. The licenses you grant to us will end when you remove Your Content from our servers, unless other Users have cloned or forked it.

License Grant to Us

We need the legal right to do things like host Your Content, analyze it, and use it to improve our service. You grant us and our legal successors the right to store, archive, parse, and display Your Content, and make incidental copies as necessary to render the Website and provide the Service, including improving the Service over time. This includes the right to do things like copy it to our database and make backups; show it to you and parse it into a search index or otherwise analyze it on our servers, as well as share it with other users in full compliance of our Privacy Policy.

This license does not grant Holistic the right to sell Your Content. It also does not grant Holistic the right to otherwise distribute or use Your Content outside of our provision of the Service, except that as part of the right to archive Your Content.

License Grant to Other Users

Any User-Generated Content you post publicly, including issues and comments, may be viewed by others. If you are uploading Content you did not create or own, you are responsible for ensuring that the Content you upload is licensed under terms that grant these permissions to other Holistic Users.

Moral Rights

You retain all moral rights to Your Content that you upload, publish, or submit to any part of the Service, including the rights of integrity and attribution. However, you waive these rights and agree not to assert them against us, to enable us to reasonably exercise the rights granted above, but not otherwise.

To the extent this agreement is not enforceable by applicable law, you grant Holistic the rights we need to use Your Content without attribution and to make reasonable adaptations of Your Content as necessary to render the Website and provide the Service.

Private Content

Control of Private Content

Some Accounts may have private content, which allow the User to control access to Content.

Confidentiality of Private Content

Holistic  considers private content to be confidential to you. Holistic will protect the contents of private repositories from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure in the same manner that we would use to protect our own confidential information of a similar nature and in no event with less than a reasonable degree of care.

Access

Holistic  personnel may only access the content of your private content in the situations described in our Privacy Policy.

Exclusions

If we have reason to believe the contents of a private library are in violation of the law or of these Terms, we have the right to access, review, and remove them. Additionally, we may be compelled by law to disclose your private content.

Copyright Infringement

If you believe that content on our website violates your copyright, please contact us by emailing [email protected]. There may be legal consequences for sending a false or frivolous takedown notice. Before sending a takedown request, you must consider legal uses such as fair use and licensed uses. We will terminate the Accounts of repeat infringers of this policy.

Intellectual Property Notice

Holistic  and our licensors, vendors, agents, and/or our content providers retain ownership of all intellectual property rights of any kind related to the Website and Service. We reserve all rights that are not expressly granted to you under this Agreement or by law.

Holistic Logos

If you would like to use Holistic's logos, you must ask for written permission.

No Abuse or Overuse of the API

Abuse or excessively frequent requests to Holistic and/or Holistic team via the API or via email may result in the temporary or permanent suspension of your Account's access to the API. Holistic, in our sole discretion, will determine abuse or excessive usage of the API. We will make a reasonable attempt to warn you via email prior to suspension.

You may not share API tokens to exceed Holistic's rate limitations.

You may not use the API to download data or Content from Holistic for spamming purposes, including for the purposes of selling Holistic users' personal information, such as to recruiters, headhunters, and job boards.

All use of the Holistic API is subject to these Terms of Service and the Privacy Policy.

Holistic may offer subscription-based access to our API for those Users who require high- throughput access or access that would result in resale of Holistic's Service.

Payment

Pricing

Our pricing and payment terms will be defined for the next version of the Holistic Service. The use of the current, Holistic beta version is free of charge subject to these terms. You may contact us at [email protected] for more complex service offerings that may be available as a consulting service based on interest and availability of both parties.

Cancellation and Termination

Account Cancellation

It is your responsibility to properly cancel your Account with Holistic. You can cancel your Account at any time by contacting us by email ([email protected]).

Upon Cancellation

We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements, but barring legal requirements, we will delete your full profile and the Content of your repositories within 90 days of cancellation or termination (though some information may remain in encrypted backups). This information can not be recovered once your Account is canceled.

We will not delete Content that you have contributed to Organizations or that other Users have cloned.

Holistic May Terminate

Holistic  has the right to suspend or terminate your access to all or any part of the Website at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. Holistic reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.

Release and Indemnification

If you have a dispute with one or more Users, you agree to release Holistic from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
