Terms of Service
To participate in Skoolaborate you must agree to the terms of service and community standards as set by Linden Labs. You understand that Skoolaborate is an online learning service for Students aged between 13 and 18 years of age and you agree to read and be familiar with all content within our ‘users guide’ that is provided on entry.
You also agree to the ‘Rules of Behavior’ as outlined in that Users Guide. Please see the procedure for ‘Critical incidents’ (again in the users guide) should any problem occur that breaks those Rules of Behavior.
Skoolaborate is a service provider, which means, among other things, that Skoolaborate does not control various aspects of the Service.
You acknowledge that Skoolaborate is a service provider that may allow Students, teachers and other approved community members to interact online regarding topics and content chosen by those users of the service, and that users can alter the service environment on a real-time basis. Skoolaborate generally does not regulate the content of communications between users or users’ interactions with the Service. As a result, Skoolaborate has very limited control, if any, over the quality, safety, morality, legality, truthfulness or accuracy of various aspects of the Service. We do, however, offer a process and procedure around any activity that falls outside our agreed rules of behavior.
Skoolaborate is a collaborative and as such does not undertake nor is it obliged to teach users how to use the second life application or to provide any more than a space that facilitates collaboration between partner groups. Whilst we ill make every attempt to facilitate, promote and participate in collaborative projects it is up to each partner to create, through active contribution, their own experiences.
If a partner is acting in a way that is against the intent of Skoolaborate, as outlined in the objectives and indicative commitments access can be denied without notification. If partners schools remain inactive for periods of more than 3 months without explanation accounts will also be made inactive. All partners are expected to contribute to the community in order to exist in the community as per the indicative commitments.
Skoolaborate cannot be held responsible for the supply of the virtual world service by Linden Labs. Skoolaborate will maintain the online systems, collaborative spaces, meeting applications, however it is possible that on occasions these services may be temporarily shut down due to server failure or maintenance.
