Proprietary Materials; Licenses
- Proprietary Materials. The Website is owned and operated by MCQ.LK. The visual interfaces, graphics, design, compilation, information, computer code (including source code or object code), software, services, content, educational videos and exercises, and all other elements of the Website (the “Website Materials”) are protected by SRI LANKAN and international copyright, patent, and trademark laws, international conventions, and other applicable laws governing intellectual property and proprietary rights. All Website Materials, and all trademarks, service marks, and trade names, contained on or available through the Website are owned by or licensed to MCQ.LK, and MCQ.LK reserves all rights therein and thereto not expressly granted by these terms.
- Licensed Educational Content. MCQ.LK may make available on the Website certain educational videos, exercises, and related supplementary materials(ex: Pass papers/answers/model questions) that are owned by MCQ.LK or its third-party licensors (the “Licensed Educational Content”). MCQ.LK grants to you a non-exclusive, non- transferable right to access and use the Licensed Educational Content as made available on the Website by MCQ.LK solely for your personal, non-commercial purposes. Unless expressly indicated on the Website that a particular item of Licensed Educational Content is made available to Users under alternate license terms, you may not download, distribute, sell, lease, modify, or otherwise provide access to the Licensed Educational Content to any third-party.
- Commercial Use. The Licensed Educational is intended for personal, non-commercial use only. Without limiting the foregoing, and notwithstanding the terms of any Alternate License for such Licensed Educational Content, the Licensed Educational Content may not be used, distributed or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose, commercial advantage or private monetary compensation, unless otherwise previously agreed in writing by MCQ.LK.
Impermissible Uses. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the following are types of uses that MCQ.LK expressly defines as falling outside of “non-commercial” use:
- The sale or rental of (1) any part of the Licensed Educational Content, (2) any derivative works based at least in part on the Licensed Educational Content, or (3) any collective work that includes any part of the Licensed Educational Content;
- Providing training, support, or editorial services that use or reference the Licensed Educational Content in exchange for a fee; and
- The sale of advertisements, sponsorships, or promotions placed on the Licensed Educational Content, or any part thereof, or the sale of advertisements, sponsorships, or promotions on any website or blog containing any part of the Licensed Educational Material.
- Use Characterization. Whether a particular use of the Licensed Educational Content is “non-commercial” depends on the use, not the user. Thus, a use of the Licensed Educational Content that does not require that users pay fees and that does not provide an entity with a commercial advantage is “non-commercial,” even if this use is by a commercial entity. Conversely, any use that involves charging users in connection with their access to the Licensed Educational Content is not “non-commercial,” even if this use is by a non-profit entity. As an example, a for-profit corporation’s use of the Licensed Educational Content for internal professional development or training of employees is permitted, so long as the corporation charges no fees, directly or indirectly, for such use. Conversely, as another example, a non-profit entity’s use of the Licensed Educational Content in connection with a fee-based training or educational program is NOT “non- commercial” and is not permitted.
- Crediting MCQ.LK. If You distribute, publicly perform or display, transmit, publish, or otherwise make available any Licensed Educational Content or any derivative works thereof, You must also provide the following notice prominently along with such Licensed Educational Content or derivative work thereof: “All MCQ.LK content is available for free at MCQ.LK SOURCE.xxx ”.
