Legal Restrictions

By accessing, viewing, downloading, or otherwise using content, media, or any other products or services, including the underlying proprietary code and technology, owned or operated by the Educational Foundation or its affiliates, subsidiaries, related corporate entities, and authorized partners (“Libertarian Petition” or “we,” “us,” or “our”) through its website, email products or services, or mobile applications (collectively, the “Libertarian Petition Technologies”), you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by the Terms of Use (the “Terms”) described below and that your use of such Libertarian Petition Technologies is at all times subject to these Terms. In some cases, the Libertarian Petition content, media, or other products and services (collectively, “Libertarian Petition Resources”) may be integrated into websites and mobile applications provided by third parties (including social networking sites), and these Terms also apply to your use of Libertarian Petition Resources.

Additionally, by accessing any of the Libertarian Petition Technologies, you represent that you are at least 13 years old and that you are fully able and competent to enter into and comply with these Terms. If you are older than 13 but under the age of consent where you live, then you must get the consent of your parents prior to using the Libertarian Petition Technologies, and if you do use the Libertarian Petition Technologies, you represent to us that you have done so.

These Terms, and any future modifications to such Terms, govern your use of the Libertarian Petition Technologies and constitute a legal contract between you and Libertarian Petition.

If you do not agree to these Terms, please immediately discontinue using the Libertarian Petition Technologies.


Absent a separate agreement with us, Libertarian Petition does not claim any ownership rights to the content created by its users and shared through the Libertarian Petition Technologies (including on our social media channels), including content in our blogs or forums (“Your Content”). We reserve the right to disable the ability of users to share content through the Libertarian Petition Technologies and we may also have a third party provider, including but not limited to Facebook, provide a forum on the Libertarian Petition Technologies to share Your Content.  After posting Your Content, subject to any rights of third party providers, you continue to retain any ownership rights you have to Your Content and you continue to have the right to use and license Your Content in any way you choose. The Content that you upload to the Libertarian Petition Technologies needs to comply with these Terms.

You hereby grant Libertarian Petition a nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, sublicenseable, and transferable right and license to use, reproduce, create derivative works of, distribute, publicly perform, and publicly display Your Content in any and all media formats or channels, whether now known or hereafter devised, including, but not limited to, the Libertarian Petition Technologies (and our social media channels) without payment and without further consent or notice to you. Without limiting the foregoing, you agree that Content you remove may persist for a reasonable amount of time in backup copies.

You hereby agree that we may remove Your Content in our sole and absolute discretion. You hereby agree that if Your Content is removed from the Libertarian Petition Technologies owing to a violation of these Terms, including in response to any DMCA (as defined below) take-down notice or because such Content contains illegal or otherwise objectionable images, Libertarian Petition shall have the right to use and reproduce Your Content in response to any subpoena or other judicial or administrative order; to assist government enforcement agencies or as otherwise required by law; and to protect the rights, property, or safety of Libertarian Petition, any individual, or the general public. If Your Content is removed, lost, altered, damaged, misused, or otherwise irretrievable, you agree to, and hereby do, waive Libertarian Petition from any and all liability.

You are responsible for making sure that you have all rights to Your Content, including the rights necessary for you to grant the foregoing licenses to Your Content. You are solely responsible for Your Content. Libertarian Petition does not guarantee any confidentiality or privacy with respect to any of Your Content.

Additionally, you understand and agree that Your Content that is displayed on the Libertarian Petition Technologies may continue to appear on the Libertarian Petition Technologies even after your account is deactivated for any reason, as portions of Your Content may have been incorporated into other Libertarian Petition features, including, but not limited to, profiles, community boards, third-party social-sharing sites, and other features.


We encourage our users to submit suggestions and ideas to us on a nonconfidential basis. If you send us creative suggestions, ideas, notes, drawings, concepts, or other submissions (e.g., postings to chats, surveys, message boards, contests, or similar items) (collectively, the “Submissions”), you automatically grant, or warrant that the owner of such material expressly grants, Libertarian Petition the royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, nonexclusive right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, and distribute such Submission (in whole or in part) through the Libertarian Petition  Technologies and/or to incorporate it in Libertarian Petition Resources or other works in any form, media, or technology now known or hereafter developed for any purpose that Libertarian Petition chooses. Libertarian Petition does not claim any ownership rights to the Submissions. Libertarian Petition is not obligated to integrate any Submission into the Libertarian Petition Technologies or Libertarian Petition Resources but may choose to do so at Libertarian Petition’s sole discretion. Regardless of whether or not a Submission is integrated into the Libertarian Petition Technologies or Libertarian Petition Resources, Libertarian Petition is not obligated to maintain any Submissions in confidence and may publicly disclose or use the Submissions. The sender acknowledges that any such use by Libertarian Petition will be without any compensation to the sender whatsoever and may not credit the sender, depending on the form of the Submission. The sender waives all so-called “moral rights” in all Submissions. The sender further waives the right to make any claims against Libertarian Petition relating to unsolicited Submissions.

From time to time, Libertarian Petition may give you opportunities to participate in Libertarian Petition-sponsored events, promotions, and presentations through requests for user Submissions that we may request through our website, social media channels or otherwise. Libertarian Petition will post guidelines (or provide forms) on the Libertarian Petition Technologies regarding your Submission. These guidelines are designed to assist you in providing Libertarian Petition with a Submission that suits our needs. Libertarian Petition may, at its discretion, alter or change the guidelines without notice to you. For instance, Libertarian Petition may extend a deadline for Submissions or accept and/or reject Submissions that fall outside the guidelines at its discretion. Requests for user Submissions are not contests, and user Submissions may be evaluated in any manner Libertarian Petition and its affiliates deem appropriate. Libertarian Petition does not guarantee that any Submission you provide will be reviewed or even considered for publication. In some cases, Submissions not chosen in a Submission request may be used on the Libertarian Petition Technologies before, during, or after the close of the Submission request. Such appearance on the Libertarian Petition Technologies is independent of the decision to use your Submission for a particular event, promotion, or presentation.


To the extent such service is available on Libertarian Petition Technologies, you are welcome to post Your Content to forums, blogs, bulletin boards, chat rooms, user commenting features, or other interactive or social features that may be offered within, or in connection with, Libertarian Petition Technologies (collectively, “Forums”). If you use any such Forums, you should be aware that any personal information you submit, display, or publish there is considered publicly available and can be read, collected, used, and disclosed by other users of those features, by us, and by other third parties without restriction. In addition, if you post Your Content  on a third party service that references the Libertarian Petition  Technologies, Your Content may be used on, or in connection with, the Libertarian Petition Technologies. Libertarian Petition  accepts no responsibility whatsoever in connection with or arising from Your Content or for the personal information you choose to submit in these features. Libertarian Petition does not endorse and has limited control over the content submitted by others to Forums. Content submitted to Forums are not necessarily reviewed by Libertarian Petition prior to posting and do not necessarily reflect the opinions or policies of Libertarian Petition. Libertarian Petition makes no warranties, express or implied, as to the content in the Forums or the accuracy and reliability of any content and other materials in the Forums. Nonetheless, Libertarian Petition reserves the right to prevent you from submitting Your Content to Forums and to edit, restrict, or remove Your Content in its sole discretion.

Libertarian Petition assumes no responsibility for actively monitoring Forums for inappropriate content. If Libertarian Petition  chooses, at its sole discretion, to monitor the Forums, Libertarian Petition nonetheless assumes no responsibility for the content on the Forum, no obligation to modify or remove any inappropriate content, and no responsibility for the conduct of the user submitting any content. In submitting Your Content to Forums, you agree to strictly limit yourself to discussions about the subject matter for which the Forums are intended.

Your content that is posted on a Forum may be used by Libertarian Petition and copied, sublicensed, adapted, transmitted, distributed, publicly performed and published, displayed, or deleted as Libertarian Petition sees fit.
