  1. Subject Matter

Users can purchase different types of licenses to create their own Worlds or to modify existing Worlds (edit mode). These Worlds are not open to the public, but Users can propose to publish them with LN.

LinkNotions is a browser based software. We tested the browser Chrome, but it also works with other browsers. We recommend that you obtain the latest version of the browser you use. Some functions are not supported by some browsers.

Limits: The number of notions and links that the user can enter in a world is very high, but it is not infinite. Let’s add that the loading of the world becomes longer as the world contains more notions, links and explanations or other content.

 

Any terms and conditions prescribed by the Users are excluded.

If the User has questions, suggestions or problems, information can be found in the “Info” section on the Site or the User can contact info@linknotions.com. LN will take care of the User’s concern as soon as possible and provide a solution, if necessary.

  1. Licenses

By using and/or registering with the website www.linknotions.com, LN grants user a personal, non-exclusive, worldwide license to use the Services according to the license purchased by the User. For each license purchased, a separate license agreement is concluded.

Any individual over the age of 18 who has full legal capacity may become a User. Minors may only conclude this Agreement with the consent of a parent or guardian. The User must provide all the data required accurately and in full, and keep it up-to-date at all times. At any time LN is entitled to demand adequate proof of the User’s identity and age of majority or of consent from a parent or guardian, or to make using specific functions contingent upon such proof.

To register with the Site, the User needs to create an account with an email address. Only one email address is linked to this account and can be used to login. An account can be used by several people, but a license must be purchased for each person using the account.

The User shall not have the right to disclose or grant any rights to the Services to third parties without LN’s prior written consent.

The User shall not alter, modify, translate, reverse engineer, enhance, correct, disassemble or decompile the Software, or create derivative works based on the Software, or copy the Software or any part of the Software, except otherwise mentioned by the legislative measures in force or with the prior written consent of LN. Further, the User shall not remove or alter any Software identification, proprietary notices, labels or trademark, which appear on or in the Software, provide electronic files, including back-up files, archive files, copy of the Software to third parties.

Under all licenses it is prohibited to publish a World or another publication by LN on the Internet (outside the Site), except with the express permission of LN.

The User is liable without restriction for its own conduct and its own account. This applies in particular to any contributions posted and any content used by the User; It is the User’s sole responsibility that they do not violate statutory regulations, or breach public policy or infringe third-party anywhere in the world. LN is under no obligation to check their accuracy or verify their legality. LN does not adopt as its own any information, content or statements posted by Users or third parties.

If the User commits any breach of duty, LN may take appropriate measures (e.g. issue a warning, block or erase content, disable the User’s access, or terminate this Agreement).

Note: We do not recommend you register simultaneously to multiple sessions in the same browser (for example if you have multiple accounts with LinkNotions). If you switch from one account to another, first log out before you log back into a different account. If you must be logged in simultaneously in multiple accounts, we suggest the use of different browsers.

 

 

  • User Mode

LN offers a number of Worlds that Users can view for free or against payment (User Mode). It is possible that a World to be viewed for free at a certain point of time may become a paid World at a later stage. LN will draw adequate advance attention to such changes.

To view a free World, the User does not need to be registered with or log-in to the Site.

  • Edit Mode

To create their own Worlds or modify existing Worlds (Edit Mode), Users can purchase different types of licenses. These Worlds are not visible to the rest of the public. Licenses in the Edit Mode are subject to charge, see price list.

LN may change its prices at any time, but only with effect for the future, including for renewals of licenses. In case of price reduction, no refund is granted.

The following license models exist:

  • Basic License: allows the User to create and edit 10 Worlds.
    This license is required to acquire a World License.
  • World License: provides access to a LN World and allows transforming this World in the User’s “My LinkNotions” space. Each World License allows the User to modify the respective World and to create 10 variations of this World. A User having purchased a Basic License and a World License can therefore create 10 Worlds from scratch and 10 Worlds based on a LN World.
  • The User can purchasethe permission tocreate additional Worlds in the Shop. Every contentof a Worldhas itsown priceand its ownextension

3.3. For each type of license LN distinguishes between 3 types of Users, for which the licensing prices differ:

  • Individuals and teachers / students
  • Professionals (individuals, companies, institutions) – Internal use
  • Professionals (individuals, companies, institutions) – External use

 

3.3.1. Licenses for individuals and teachers/students

  • For individuals: This license is for personal and private use of individuals only. No commercial use is permitted.
  • For teachers/students: License for all teachers (all levels: primary, secondary, university, etc.) in their teaching activities and privately. Teachers may use this license in class, but for no other activity in public (except for public lectures provided that they are not subject to charge), and for no activities outside their teaching duties (such as for their work for a private company). Students may use it in all their activities, at home, in class or elsewhere, except for public activities outside of a school context, or for any commercial purposes.
  • The school administration is required to have a license for institutions and companies in internal / external use (depending on use).
  • It is allowed to send a World by individual email under this license.

3.3.2 Licenses for professionals (individuals, companies, institutions) – Internal use

For any use in a professional setting either individually or in a company/institution. Internally means that the Services can only be used within the company and not in the relation to customers or the public. I.e. they may not be used to present results to a client. It is further not permitted to show, present or sell a World developed in LN to a client. It is allowed to send a World by individual intra-company email.
3.3.3 Licenses for professional (individuals, companies, institutions) – External use

As the license for internal use, but under this license, the LN Services can be used in relation to customers (e.g. to present results of an analysis), to the public (e.g. in conferences and other public events). It is allowed to send a World by individual email to customers.

  1. Publishing a World

After having created a World in its “My LinkNotions” space, the User can ask LN to publish it. There are two options:

  • Publishing under the responsibility of LinkNotions
  • Publishing under the User’s responsibility

4.1 Publishing under the responsibility of LinkNotions

By offering a World to LN, the User agrees to the following rules.

LN checks if the User’s World meets the quality criteria described below and accepts or refuses to publish the User’s World.

If LN accepts the World, LN publishes the User’s World in its list of the Worlds.

By offering the World to LN, the User assigns to LN all of its current and future rights in the World and all of its contents, or, where this is not possible, grants to LN the exclusive, irrevocable, temporally and geographically unlimited right to use and exploit the World in any way. The User may not control this World anymore and is not mentioned as owner of the World.

LN may at any time add or remove a World published under its responsibility. No claims or compensation are possible.

The User is granted one or several of the following titles: Creator of the World; Master of the World; Initiator of the World (see below).

This type of publishing is free of charge.

 

4.2 Publishing under the User’s responsibility

By requesting LN to publish a World at the User’s own risk, the User agrees to these terms.

This type of publishing is subject to charge. The User needs to pay the fees for an annual publishing.

The User creates the World with its license and sends it to LN using the appropriate form and stating the reference. The User may create a World from scratch or a World based on a World published under the responsibility of LN. The User may not create versions of a World published under another responsibility than LN’s.

There is no minimum amount of notions or links, and explanations are not required.

The User can edit the published World in the User section regularly and can request LN to publish the updated World. Publishing these updates is subject to charge.

The User can state its email address in its World as to receive propositions by other Users.

The User is responsible for improvements of the World.

The User remains owner, Creator and Master of this World and can fully control changes.

The User does not assign to LN its rights in the World and its contents, but the User grants to LN the non-exclusive, irrevocable, temporally and geographically unlimited right to use and exploit the World, namely to publish it as described herein.

Any World submitted must comply with morality. LN does not publish Worlds with immoral content.

The User is responsible for its publication and LN reserves the right to remove the World if it violates any third party rights.

The User can cancel the publishing each year at the end of the License Term. If LN considers it useful, LN may continue publishing the User’s World under LN’s responsibility and offer it in the Shop after User cancelled the publishing under its responsibility. User hereby assigns and/or grants LN the non-exclusive, irrevocable, temporally and geographically unlimited right to use and exploit the notions and the links between the notions as well as their location and the general presentation. The rights to the explanations remain with the User, and LN will request the User’s authorization before publishing them. No request for authorization is necessary regarding standard wording describing links, such as “If notion X increases, notion Y decreases”.

If the User creates a World based on an already existing LN World, the User has to use the same name as the World on which the User bases its new World, followed by the term “LinkNotions” in brackets, followed by “version” and a text of your choice:

Example 1:

Name in LinkNotions:                  Economy
Name of the new publication:      Economy (LinkNotions) Version E. Jiomi

Or:                                                 Economy (LinkNotions) Version Stanio Institute

Or:                                                 Economy (LinkNotions) Version France / E.Jiomi

Or:                                                 Economy (LinkNotions) Version France / Institute X

 

Example 2:

Name in LinkNotions:                  Economy France

Name of the new publication:      Economy France (LinkNotions) Version E. Jiomi

Or:                                                 Economy France (LinkNotions) Version X Institute

The Worlds will be published in the corresponding sections of the Worlds of LN, in the folders:

  • Worlds of private individuals, teachers and non-profit organizations; or
  • Worlds of companies and institutions

LN can highlight certain Worlds in special sections due to their particular interest.
The sections’ names and the order of the items can be modified by LN.

 

  1. Creator of a World, Master of a World and other Titles

 

5.1 Creator of a World

A User is mentioned as Creator of a World if the conditions below are fulfilled:

 

5.1.1 Created a World, which contains at least:

  • 120 notions and explanations
  • 270 links between these notions and explanations of links
  • Possibly an explanation of
  1. Any possible domains
  2. Any subject groups
  3. The type of link and used colors that match it

 

5.1.2 Submitted the World with LN by choosing one of the two options:

  • Creating the world in the User’s “My LinkNotions” space with the User’s license and sending it to LN. The User can submit additional explanations regarding the areas and potential subject areas by email.
  • Creating three tables (one for notions, one for links and for the types of links / influences used) in Word or Excel with the structure shown below and providing further explanation of the fields and potential subject areas.

 

Table for notions
Name of the notion No. varying Explanation of the notion
Ex. : traffic C15 All modes of transportation vehicles in tEnsemble des moyens de transports in circulation to transport persons or property. Examples are cars, trucks, ships or planes. They run on the roads that ….
1
2
Table for links
Notion that influences / Influenced notion No. varying Type of links Explanation of the link
Ex. : Traffic / Pollution C15/G27 Positive If traffic increases, pollution increases. Indeed, as the majority of transportation use energy that releasing substances…

2
Table for link types
Type of link Explanation
Ex. : Positive Influence in the same way.So: If notion A increases, then notion B also increases
Or: If notion A decreases, then notion B also decreases
1
2

 

 

  • LN must see a usefulness of the proposed World, namely:
  • The proposed notions must exist in the area of knowledge in question (at least 100 notions from over 120 proposed must be accepted by LN).
  • The links must be understandable (at least 250 links among the 270 offered must be accepted by LN).
  • Notions and links must be explained by the User itself (minimum 50 words per explanation).
  • All must be consistent and provide a good basis to build on.

 

  • Consequences

A Creator of a World remains creator of it until the end of the created World or until the closure of the Site.

The Creator will also remain Master of this World until another User meets the conditions to take over this title (see below).

Creator of the World will get a free license for the created World until the end of the created World or (if this World does not end) until the closure of the Site.

 

  • Master of a World

If another User proposes at least 50 notions (with explanations) and 125 links (with explanations) additional to the already existing ones in a World created by another User or LN, (and if these proposed notions and links are accepted by LN), this User becomes Master of this World. The Creator of the World will remain Creator, but it will lose its title as Master of this World. The Master of the World remains Master until another User meets the conditions to take over this title. If, in the meantime, another User has proposed at least 50 notions and 125 links more than the old Master (and those are accepted by LN), this User will become Master of this World.

Wherever possible, LN keeps the names of the Creator and successive Masters of a World in the “About” of each World.

A Master of a World gets a free license  for the created World for six (6) months, but at least as long as the User is the Master of a World. It will not be entitled to any further compensation, but LN can decide to grant certain gratifications.

 

  • Contributor to a World

A World can be completely reorganized. If LN believes at any time that the new order is better, it can be applied without warning, as far as acceptable in consideration of the interests of the User. A User who proposed such an implemeted change will receive the title of “Contributor to the World”.

 

  • Initiator of a World

A User can offer a World without fulfilling the conditions above, but the User will not be regarded as Creator or Master. If the proposed World is published on the Site, the User will be considered as the Initiator.

 

 

  1. Selling the User’s World published under its own responsibility in the Shop

 

If the User has created its own World from scratch and has it published under the User’s own responsibility, the User can ask LN to offer it in the Shop for sale. This is not possible if the User created the World based on another LN World.

The User shall use the corresponding form provided on the Site to request to offer the User’s World for sale, and the User shall propose a sales price structure.

For the request to be accepted, the World must be of general interest and LN must consider the price structure as suitable. The revenue share is 40% for the User and 60% for LN.

Each party shall be responsible for paying its own income tax, turnover tax and any other taxes and levies assessed in accordance with statutory regulations for the revenue share hereunder.

The User can decide to donate its revenue share to an institution as defined below in the section “Social commitment”. LN will handle the distribution of the revenue share and will choose the recipient.

Once the World is offered for sale in the Shop, each User having purchased a World License for this World, can transform it and have it published on the Site under its own responsibility according to the conditions above.  The name of the World must be the same as the name of the World published in the Shop followed by the name of the original author in brackets, and followed by: “Version …” followed by a text of the User’s choice.

As far as acceptable in consideration of the interests of the User, LN may withdraw a World from the Shop without informing the User having created and filed the World.

The User can ask to withdraw the World from the Shop at any time.

If the World is withdrawn from the Shop, Users having purchased a license to it can continue to use the World and buy an extension.

 

  1. Propositions for improvement by User

As Users cannot make changes in the Worlds published on the Site, Users are encouraged to propose amendments to LN. The proposed amendments will be analyzed by LN, and incorporated in the respective Worlds if LN deems appropriate. LN is under no obligation to check and/or implement any proposals by a User.

By submitting any proposal for amendment, the User assigns to LN all of its rights to the proposal and all of its contents or, where this is not possible, grants LN the exclusive, irrevocable, temporally and geographically unlimited right to use and exploit the proposal and all of its contents in any way, namely the right to implement it into the Services, publish, modify and combine them with other works.

If LN implements and publishes a proposal, and if the User wishes, the submitting User’s name or pseudonym (and, at its request, its email address) will be stated in the publication, if possible. If several Users have contributed to a publication, they will be listed as co-authors. The User can request to delete such reference at any time. No other compensation can be claimed. Errors or omissions in the publication of names, pseudonyms or email addresses cannot give rise to compensation.

 

  1. User’s and third party content

The User warrants and represents that it will not create, submit or provide any content which infringes third-party rights. Moreover, User warrants and represents that it may dispose over the rights which are assigned to LN at any present or future date, and that such rights are clear of third-party rights. If the User creates a World based on an already existing LN World, the User may take contents of these other LN Worlds, but not from any third party.

The User releases and discharges LN from all and any claims that are asserted on LN by third parties due to any breach of duty or infringement of rights that is committed by the User, unless the User is not responsible for such breach or infringement. Reasonable costs for defending and asserting rights must also be refunded.

LN is neither obligated nor in the position to control and/or to monitor the legality of contents uploaded or published by User or other third parties or to investigate regarding illegal actions. This also applies for hyperlinks.

If LN gets informed about violations of rights, the contents in question will be removed after in-depth assessment. LN reserves the right to disable and/or remove contents made accessible by third parties – including links – permanently.
