User-Generated Content

You retain your intellectual property ownership rights over content you submit to us for publication on our website. We will never claim ownership of your content, but we do require a license from you in order to use it.

Our website and the materials on our website are provided on an 'as is' basis.

In no event shall Lioneur or its suppliers be liable for any consequential loss suffered or incurred by you or any third party arising from the use or inability to use this website or the materials on this website, even if Lioneur or an authorized representative has been notified, orally or in writing, of the possibility of such damage.

Lioneur Community Member’s Confidentiality Pledge

All members and staff of the Lioneur community agree to abide by the duties and obligations in the following pledge:

I will abide by the “Confidentiality Standards” below; and

I will abide by the “Terms and Use” of Lioneur’s websites and Android & IOS platforms (the “Sites”).

Confidentiality Standards

The following confidentiality standards will be observed by all within the Lioneur community.

Non-Disclosure

Confidential issues and information shared between members of the Lioneur community are not to be discussed with or revealed to any other person or organization without the prior permission of all parties involved. This includes but is not limited to issues and information shared: in groups, pages, forums meetings, and one-to-ones (online chats); and via any Lioneur Sites, web properties, or Lioneur community networking vehicles.

Contacting Others

Issues raised within the Lioneur community are often confidential and are not common knowledge within the community or within members’ companies. When contacting a Lioneur member about such an issue, please use the utmost circumspection. In particular, use care when talking to Lioneur members’ employees, calling or e-mail to members that may be viewed by other parties, and when leaving voicemail messages in general voicemail boxes.

Usernames and Passwords

Access to Lioneur Sites and the information contained therein is to be protected at all times and users must take all necessary safeguards to secure their personal username and password information. Do not share your password with anyone else, if you believe your password may have been lost or stolen please contact the Lioneur Support desk (info@lioneur.com) and we will change it for you.

Solicitation

All users of Lioneur Sites agree that the directories and e-mail addresses contained within Lioneur Sites will not be used for solicitation of business by any member of the Lioneur community (including staff). This information may not be used to compile marketing or contact lists of any kind.

Competition and Hiring

All members of the Lioneur community agree not to use any non-public information posted on the Sites or shared within the Lioneur community to directly or indirectly, either individually or with others, compete with; solicit customers, employees or business away from;or otherwise cause economic loss to, any other member of the Lioneur community.

Reminder

Despite best efforts to ensure confidentiality and security, no site can be guaranteed to be 100% secure 100% of the time. Use caution with all of your Internet transactions.

Although members agree to hold in full confidentiality anything discussed in their group, page, forum meetings, and during one-to-one conversations (online chats), this agreement is not binding on third parties or in a court of law. Members could be compelled to testify on matters discussed in meetings or on Lioneur discussion boards and forums, and Lioneur may be required to disclose information or materials pursuant to applicable laws, regulations, orders, subpoenas or other processes of law. Therefore, members should generally exercise caution when discussing anything in a Lioneur meeting or on a Lioneur discussion board or forum that a member would not want disclosed in any legal proceeding. Furthermore, members of publicly traded companies should seek the advice of their corporate counsel regarding disclosure of any material, non-public information in light of applicable securities laws and regulations.

In addition, because member issue recordings are not ‘privileged’ (i.e., not protected from disclosure under the law), a court could compel Lioneur to release a copy of the issue recording or discussion thereof if a copy of an issue were to be uploaded to a Lioneur web property or if members engaged in a discussion of such an issue in a Lioneur forum or discussion area. Thus, our best practice recommendation is for members to receive their copy of any issue recorded at their meeting because of the possibly sensitive nature of issues.  Similarly, we recommend that discussions of issues containing potentially confidential or sensitive information not take place on Lioneur web properties if the participants wish to keep such discussions privileged.

You acknowledge that Lioneur cannot control, monitor, or be responsible for the conduct of members, Chairs or Speakers or Staff, and that disputes or claims arising out of violations of this Pledge shall remain between the disputing parties without liability to Lioneur.
