Effective Date: 1-7-2015

We’ll try to make this as painless and straightforward as possible.

This is a contract (“Terms”) between you and Liyamu (“Liyamu,” “we,” or “us”), applicable when you use our site/s and content provided by Liyamu, globally, in existence now or in the future (“Liyamu Services”).

These terms are a binding agreement

Even if your eyes normally glaze over the word “Terms,” it’s a good idea to read this agreement carefully before you use Liyamu. For one thing, we want your feedback and suggestions on how to make our service better. (We’d really like to hear from you: email your input to support@liyamu.lk) For another, by using Liyamu Services, you agree to be bound by everything in these Terms. If you don’t agree to the Terms, please don’t use Liyamu.

Your content

You own the rights to the content you post on Liyamu. We don’t claim ownership over any of it. However, by posting or transferring content to Liyamu, you give us permission to use your content solely to do the things we need to do to provide Liyamu Services, including, without limitation, storing, displaying, reproducing, and distributing your content. This may include promoting your content with partner companies or services for broader broadcast, distribution, or publication.

We will never sell your content to third parties without your explicit permission.

By publishing on Liyamu, you agree to allow others to view your content.

Pre-screening

Before your articles are published, we do a stringent check on the content of your posts. Usually if your post does not violate the “Liyamu Rules” mentioned elsewhere, it will be live within 24 hours.

However, if there is a discrepancy, and if Liyamu administrators believe that your content may violate any of the Liyamu Rules, we will contact you regarding such content. We will not change the contents of any portion of your articles without your expressed consent. Such posts may only be published after it is confirmed that your content does not violate our Rules.

Administrators

Please note that Liyamu administrators treat your content with utmost confidentiality and security and none of your contents would be shared with any other party (other than the site administrators), without your expressed consent.

You are free to delete your content from Liyamu at any time, though there may be a delay in removing it from public view due to operational requirements. We do not maintain any backup of sorts of your data. Therefore, if you delete your account or content, it may be permanently unrecoverable.

Liability

You’re responsible for the content you submit to Liyamu and assume all risks associated with it, including anyone else’s reliance on its accuracy, or claims relating to intellectual property or other legal rights. By posting, you represent that you own or have the necessary rights to post the content on Liyamu, and that doing so doesn’t conflict with any other licenses you’ve granted.

On the contrary, we get a lot of questions about whether you can post content you own on Liyamu if you’ve already posted it elsewhere, like on your blog. The answer is yes. If you own the content, you’re welcome to copy it from other places and publish it on Liyamu (and vice versa) as long as you didn’t give exclusive rights to other platforms or publishers.

We may modify these Terms at any time

We can change these Terms at any time. If the changes are material, we’ll let you know by email or posting a notice on the site before the changes go into effect. The notice will designate a reasonable amount of time (the “Notice Period”) after which the new terms will go into effect for all users. If you don’t agree to the new terms, please delete your account within the Notice Period. If you do not delete your account within the Notice Period, your content and use of the site will be subject to the new terms going forward. 

We may modify our Services at any time

We do our best to provide you a reliable and evolving service, but we may change, terminate, or restrict access to any aspect of the service, at any time, without notice.

Privacy

When you use Liyamu Services, you consent to the collection and use of information as detailed in our Privacy Policy. If you’re outside Sri Lanka, you consent to the transfer, storage, and processing of your information—including but not limited to the content you posted or transferred to the site and any personal information—to and within Sri Lanka and other countries.

Security and responsible disclosures

We take security very seriously, and are always on the lookout for opportunities to make our service better. If you feel any portion of the web site and related security components have been compromised, please report it immediately by emailing us. We will take prompt steps to remedy any unusual experience that you may have had at Liyamu.

Third-party account use for sign-ins
