Lastly, we highly recommend you read the TOUs in full before participating in this site. And reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
Effective as of July 19, 2017 – Version 1.0
Welcome to the “Digital Makerspace” (sometimes referred to herein as the “Site” or “DMS”), a website platform that permits individuals in the conservation community to come together with individuals from other fields and disciplines to observe, participate in, organize, and lead collaborative “Projects” (defined in more detail below) to develop technology solutions that serve the community’s goal of conservation impact.
The Digital Makerspace is owned and operated by Conservation X Labs, Inc. (sometimes referred to herein as “CXL,” the “Organization,” “we,” or “us”), a non-profit § 501(c)(3) organization, incorporated in Washington D.C., whose mission is to harness exponential technologies, open innovation, and entrepreneurship to dramatically improve the efficacy, cost, speed, scale, and sustainability of conservation efforts to end human-induced extinction.
The Digital Makerspace was initially conceived and created for the Oceans X Labs program, a joint initiative between the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and CXL to create an incubator/ accelerator for sourcing, developing, and scaling innovations to facilitate ocean conservation. To this end, CXL’s Digital Makerspace offers the conservation community a digital platform that supports mass collaboration around key conservation challenges, connecting community members from different disciplines, helping innovators identify technical, financial, and human resources, and guiding technology and product development to create scalable conservation impact.
We, at CXL, recognize that individual effort and hard work carried out on the Site must be incentivized and that intellectual property (“IP,” or “Intellectual Property,” which is defined in more detail below) developed on the Site must be protected and treated fairly if we are to accomplish this goal.
BACKGROUND ON USER PARTICIPATION ON THE SITE:
A User who accesses the Site may do so via at least one of the following “Permission Levels” associated with the type of User an individual is, each of which provides a different degree of access to the Site’s Services:
Certain other restrictions outlined herein or on the Site may also apply to Public, Tribe Member, and/or Project Member Users.
The Services include various collaborative efforts. One example of such collaborative efforts is a Project aimed at developing conservation-related technology. These are typically led by one or more Project Instigators who, using the Site, oversee Project Members and any other individual authorized to participate in a Project. A Project Instigators controls a Project’s visibility, whether by making the Project entirely open & visible to public, open & visible only to Tribe Members, or open & visible only to Project Members. Further, as explained in more detail below, a Challenge, which may be initiated by a third-party organization, or by CXL itself, and which seeks conservation technology solutions, may result in a Project being carried out on the Site. Another example is convening of a multidisciplinary community that seeks to address global environmental challenges.
Projects typically begin with a “Project Idea” that will generally originate in one of three ways:
With respect to any Project, a Project Instigator may choose for the Project to be “Open” or “Closed.” An “Open” project may be considered an open Project whereby all details of the project development will be shared openly with the Tribe community, and a “Closed” project may be considered a Project whereby the Project Instigator will moderate access to the Project details.
THE APPROVAL OF ANY PROJECT IDEA TO BE PUBLISHED AS A PROJECT ON THE SITE, BY CXL OR ANY OTHER ENTITY OR PERSON AUTHORIZED BY CXL TO HELP SELECT A PROJECT IDEA FOR A PROJECT, IS SUBJECT TO CXL’S SOLE AND ABSOLUTE DISCRETION, AND CXL RESERVES THE RIGHT, FOR ANY OR NO REASON, TO (I) REJECT ANY SUBMITTED PROJECT IDEA, (II) REFUSE TO POST ANY SUBMITTED PROJECT IDEA TO THE SITE, AND/OR (III) AND TERMINATE THE DEVELOPMENT OR ANY PHASE RELATED TO A PROJECT OR PROJECT IDEA.
