Statement of Rights and Responsibilities

This agreement was written in English. To the extent any translated version of this agreement conflicts with the English version, the English version controls.

AFRICA BUILD is an altruistic initiative to improve education in Africa and does not charge any fee for participating in its distance courses through the AFRICA BUILD Portal (ABP). Since we have no financial interest, we have also no means to control copyrights of the material included by volunteer participants. If anyone has some claim regarding copyrighted use of information, textual or graphical, please communicate to the AFRICA BUILD Team (africabuild@infomed.dia.fi.upm.es) and we will analyse the use of such information in the public side of the portal.

  2. We can remove any content or information you post on the AFRICA BUILD Portal if we believe that it violates this statement or our policies.
  3. If we remove your content for infringing someone else's copyright, and you believe we removed it by mistake, we will provide you with an opportunity to appeal.
  4. If you repeatedly infringe other people's intellectual property rights, we will disable your account when appropriate.
  5. If you collect information from users, you will: obtain their consent, make it clear you (and not the AFRICA BUILD Portal) are the one collecting their information, and post a privacy policy explaining what information you collect and how you will use it.
