MindPerk Terms of Use Agreement

Use of this website constitutes your acceptance of these terms of use. This Agreement describes the entire terms and conditions for use of MindPerk.com.

Content Use and Ownership
All content on MindPerk.com is copyrighted and you are not permitted to copy images, text, or other content from MindPerk.com to be published or broadcast in any form, whether print or electronic, in any media or website. You may browse, print, and use the information for your own personal use only. All MindPerk generated content is owned by MindPerk, Inc.

Guest Content Submissions
We welcome content submissions to MindPerk.com and invite qualified contributors to register and submit articles, reviews, videos, comments or other relevant content. In order to comply with recent Google restrictions and guidelines, guest authors must comply with the following:

  1. Guest authors must write a short bio (commercial) for themselves, including a true picture of the author.  The bio should mention the author’s accomplishments and may reference his or her website, but will not include a clickable link to the website.
  2. Contributed articles must contain only original, unique content.  They may not contain quotes, stories, or other content that is the work of someone else or that appear elsewhere on the web.
  3. Contributed articles must be exclusively written for MindPerk and may not be posted on any other website, including the author’s own website.  This eliminates the possibility of duplicate content (which can hurt both MindPerk and the Author’s site).  Having unique content on MindPerk helps the author by boosting his or her exposure and introducing our thousands of readers to the author.

These guidelines protect both the author and MindPerk from negative penalties from Google and are designed to give the author the best possible chance of improved exposure through guest posting on MindPerk.  All contributing authors retain full copyright of their submitted content, but grant a release for MindPerk to use, modify, and publish all submitted content. While we make every reasonable effort to maintain the integrity of your submission, for our protection, MindPerk reserves the right to edit, modify, or reject any submitted content, including articles, images, descriptions, links, biographies, blogs, comments, ratings, etc.  Submissions can be rejected or edited for style, including spelling, grammar, punctuation errors, etc.  Submissions can be rejected or edited for content, including content which contains sexually explicit references; profanity; vulgarity; links; descriptions or promotion of violence; discrimination based on race, sex, nationality, disability or age; promotes illegal activity; violates intellectual property rights; is incomplete or incoherent; or which is in any way deemed inappropriate by the editors at MindPerk.com, at their sole discretion.  Submissions may be edited or rejected without the permission or notification of the contributor or author.
