USER-PROVIDED CONTENT - GEDCOMS
A user may submit a GEDCOM for inclusion in and upload to the Kent Family Garden area of the Kent OPC project web site on the terms and conditions set out below and elsewhere in this agremeent.
1. Your name and contact email address will be displayed on the Kent Family Garden as the contributor responsible for your GEDCOM data and will therefore be visible to all users of the web site whether registered users or otherwise. You agree that you will receive email from time to time from persons interested in your data and that you will be wholly responsible for all contact with such individuals or organizations. In the event that the contact you receive is malicious or of a nuisance nature upon submitting full particulars of that individual or organization's contact details the Kent OPC project will attempt to block the same from further access to the Kent OPC web site.
2. No GEDCOM data will be permitted to be decompiled and displayed on any area of the www.kent-opc.org web site if such material contains the names or other details of living individuals. The names or other personal details of all living individuals must be removed by you prior to submitting your GEDCOM to the Kent OPC project. In the event an individual is still living that was enumerated during the 1912 census and appears on the enumerator's schedules, only the sex, age and place of birth of that individual may be included in the family group, notes and sources pertaining to his or her family. In such a case, a statement may be made such as "my grandmother" or "my grand-uncle" in place of the person's name.
3. No GEDCOM data will be permitted to be decompiled and displayed on any area of the www.kent-opc.org web site if such material contains or is deemed by us that we believe, in our sole discretion, is unlawful, obscene, indecent, defamatory, incites racial or ethnic hatred or violates the rights of others, or is in any other way unlawful and/or objectionable.
4. You the user represent that you have obtained all requisite permissions from all living individuals who may be unduly adversely affected by information included in your GEDCOM file concerning recent deceased ancestors. For the purposes of providing guidance to you in order to meet this aspect of this agreement this example is provided: If there was illegitimacy of a child born within the past 100 years, i.e. 1909 through 2009, both inclusive, and notwithstanding if that child is now or has long since been deceased, unless permission of each living descendant of that child has been obtained and is provided with the submission of the user's GEDCOM file, that information will be deleted from the GEDCOM file as soon as it is decompiled on the Kent OPC's web server.
5. Your GEDCOM data will form only one part of the total combined Kent Family Garden area of the Kent OPC project web site. Accordingly, you will be granted limited and restricted access to administrative functions available via the software used to power the Kent Family Garden.
6. You represent and warrant to the Kent OPC project that the information contained in your user-provided GEDCOM is not currently, nor has ever been, submitted to or displayed on any of the subsidiaries of the Genealogical Society of Utah, including but not limited to the Family Search website,
7. You represent and warrant to the Kent OPC project that the information contained in your user-provided GEDCOM is not currently, nor has ever been, submitted to or displayed on The Generations Network or any of its' affiliates or subsidiaries, including but not limited to Rootsweb, to any of the Ancestry websites and Genealogy.com.
You may request that one image of each of your direct-line ancestors be added to your data in the Kent Family Garden.
You may request that one image of a headstone for each of your direct-line ancestors be added to your data in the Kent Family Garden.
You may request that one image of the results of any mitochondrial DNA analysis of your maternal ancestry be added to your data in the Kent Family Garden. We can assist you with the proper set up and display of the analysis results should you so desire.
You may request that one image of the results of any Y-chromosone DNA analysis of your paternal ancestry be added to your data in the Kent Family Garden. We can assist you with the proper set up and display of the analysis results should you so desire.
It is expected that any documentation used in support of your ancestry and attached to your genealogical data will be converted into properly form sources and citations prior to submission of your GEDCOM to the Kent OPC project. We are unable to accommodate the inclusion of images of certificates, church registers, census, tax lists, Wills or any other such similar source material.
The Kent OPC project will not, at any time, utilize user-contributed GEDCOM data in collaboration with any other organizations (including commercial genealogical organizations) for any purpose whatsoever without first obtaining your express written permission so to do. We are unable, however, to restrict linking by such third party web sites to the information contained as part of your user-provided GEDCOM content.
Those who may view your genealogical data through another organizations' Internet site cannot see any of your personal information other than your name and contact email address as provided to the Kent OPC project for inclusion with your GEDCOM information.
Users may add, correct or delete ancestral data in the Kent Family Garden via the "Suggest" a correction link that is displayed in the menu found on all "Individual" pages. Unless you are the original contributor of the data, the suggested alteration will be forwarded to that original contributor with your contact name and details for consideration and reply directly to you. Only original contributors of GEDCOM material or personal information are able to effect a change, correct, edit or delete any part of their user-provided GEDCOM content.
GEDCOM contributors may after the initial term of three months has elapsed from the first upload of their GEDCOM to the Kent Family Garden apply for limited administrative privileges as regards the correction, addition and/or deletion of their in situ user-provided data.
The upload and decompiling of the GEDCOM of a user shall always be processed only by the web site's global administrator.
A GEDCOM containing revisions to the initial user-provided data may be submitted to the Kent OPC project once in every quarter year for re-upload and decompiling in the Kent Family Garden. Submissions should be made during no later than the 15th day of each of March, June, September and December in order for the revised GEDCOM to appear as part of the Kent Family Garden for the then ensuing quarter year.
It is understood by you the user that all revised GEDCOMs submitted will overwrite the existing data in your then displayed tree. In the event that your revised GEDCOM contains has re-assigned person ID or RIN or MRIN numbers to one or more individuals for whom links to photographs or other images exist in the current online version of your data, you will be responsible for identifying and correcting the misplaced images.
You acknowledge and agree that there are areas of the Kent Family Garden that are now and will always remain under the sole authorship, control and discretion of the Kent OPC project. Additionally, many features of the Kent Family Garden are produced directly from the family trees contained within it by the software that powers it. The areas of the Kent Family Garden that are affected by these conditions and restrictions are: Histories, Albums, Reports, Statistics, What's New, Log In, Photos, Documents, Videos, Recordings, All Media, Cemeteries, Headstones, Places, Notes, Dates and Anniversaries, Sources, Repositories, Access Log, Change Language, Surnames, and Bookmarks. Any stray additions found in any of these area of the Kent Family Garden will be deleted.
A yearly fee may, in future, be levied and payable in advance for the storage of GEDCOM files on this web site.
