With respect to Your Content, by displaying it, you grant Artusi a non-exclusive, worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable license to use, reproduce, adapt, publish, translate and distribute it in any and all media. (This term is similar to terms for uploading messages to Facebook, photos to Instagram, videos to YouTube, etc. and without it, we could not, for instance, show you or your instructor your answers!)

Your Content must be your own and must not be infringing on any third party’s rights. Artusi reserves the right to remove any of Your Content from this Website at any time, and for any reason, without notice.

  1. No warranties.

This Website is provided “as is,” with all faults, and Artusi makes no express or implied representations or warranties, of any kind related to this Website or the materials contained on this Website. This lack of warranty covers errors in grading, storage, or availablity of your data to you or any instructor on the site. Additionally, nothing contained on this Website shall be construed as providing consult or advice to you.

  1. Limitation of liability.

In no event shall Artusi, nor any of its officers, directors and employees, be liable to you for anything arising out of or in any way connected with your use of this Website, whether such liability is under contract, tort or otherwise, and Artusi, including its officers, directors and employees shall not be liable for any indirect, consequential or special liability arising out of or in any way related to your use of this Website.

  1. Severability.

If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render these Terms unenforceable or invalid as a whole, and such provisions shall be deleted without affecting the remaining provisions herein.

  1. Variation of Terms.

Artusi is permitted to revise these Terms at any time as it sees fit (within reasonably construed grounds of standard website or educational material Terms), and by using this Website you are expected to review such Terms on a regular basis to ensure you understand all terms and conditions governing use of this Website.

  1. Assignment.

Artusi shall be permitted to assign, transfer, and subcontract its rights and/or obligations under these Terms without any notification or consent required. However, you shall not be permitted to assign, transfer, or subcontract any of your obligations under these Terms.

  1. Entire Agreement.

These Terms, including any legal notices and disclaimers contained on this Website, constitute the entire agreement between Artusi and you in relation to your use of this Website, and supersede all prior agreements and understandings with respect to the same.

  1. Governing Law & Jurisdiction.

These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Connecticut, and you submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts located in Connecticut and federal courts of the United States for the resolution of any disputes. If governing law in your country, state, or district does not allow for your agreement to these terms, you may not use this website.

  1. FERPA Notice.

This website has not been externally verified to be in compliance under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). However, Artusi makes every intention with complying with all aspects of the act. In particular, Artusi will not knowingly disclose personally identifiable information about student users of the site except to officials with a legitiable educational purpose, such as those listed in the third bullet point of the FERPA link above. Students (or parents/guardians of students in the case of students under the age of majority) have the right to inspect records kept here under request (a modest fee is charged for such requests, as allowable by law); students have the right to request instructors (first) and the operator of this site (second) to correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the instructor or site decline to correct the record, students have the right to place a statement to appear with grades or other information contesting the information stored. Students may ask their instructors to allow them to enroll with a non-identifying e-mail address or a pseudonym.

Personally identifiable information may be used in the process of improvements to the website and in understanding how music theory is being learned. However, Artusi is run by educators who believe in education and are appalled by the idea of selling students' information to third parties. So we don't and won't do it.
