Use of Content from this Web Site

The Partnership for Excellence in Jewish Education (“PEJE”) invites its Web visitors to use the content of its Web site for personal, educational, and other noncommercial purposes. By using this Web site, you agree to abide by the following terms.

Intellectual Property Rights in Content

PEJE is the owner of the compilation of content that is posted on PEJE’s Web site, including its text, images, audio and video clips, design, databases, codes, and software (“Content”), but it does not necessarily own all the material within this compilation. The Content may be owned by PEJE, owned by others and used with their permission, or used in accordance with applicable law. Some Content is in the public domain and some Content is protected by third party rights such as copyright, trademark, rights of publicity, privacy, and contractual restrictions.

PEJE Content is identified as having “no known copyright restrictions” when PEJE is unaware of any copyright restrictions on its use. This may mean that: (1) a copyright existed at one time but was not renewed, or the copyright may have expired, or the owner may have intentionally placed the Content into the public domain; or (2) the Content was never eligible for copyright protection because it was created by an employee of the United States as part of his or her official duties; or (3) there are no copyright markings or other indications on the Content to indicate that it was copyrighted or otherwise restricted; or (4) PEJE records do not indicate any evidence of copyright restrictions. These facts do not necessarily mean that the Content is in the public domain, but rather indicate that no evidence has been found to show that copyright restrictions apply.

PEJE endeavors to provide information that it possesses about the copyright status of the Content and to identify any other terms and conditions that may apply to the use of the Content, such as trademark, privacy or publicity rights, donor or other contractual restrictions. However, PEJE can offer no guarantee or assurance that all pertinent information is provided or that the information is correct in each circumstance. It is your responsibility to determine what permission(s) you need in order to use the Content and, if necessary, to obtain such permission. If you have specific questions or information about the Content, please contact the appropriate PEJE department or program associated with the Content or send an email to info@peje.org.

Permitted Uses

PEJE welcomes you to make fair use of the Content as defined by copyright law. Information on the United States copyright law is available from the Copyright Office of the Library of Congress. Please note that you are solely responsible for determining whether your use is fair and for responding to any claims that may arise from your use.

PEJE also allows personal, educational, and other noncommercial uses of the Content on the following terms:

Certain Uses Require Prior Written Permission

You may not use the Content for commercial purposes. This means that you may not sell the Content or sell materials, products, or services that use or incorporate the Content, nor may you use the Content to promote or advertise yourself or other persons, organizations, causes, products, or services. If you want to use the Content for any purpose other than a permitted use, you must obtain prior, written permission from PEJE or other owner of the Content to whom you are referred by PEJE.

If you are requesting permission to use Content, you may send your request to info@peje.org.
