Thanks for using our products and services, which may include but are not intended to be limited to: thecodeoflearning.com website; our services and others; hereafter (“Services”). The Services are provided by The Security Matrix, LLC of Maryland, hereafter (“WEBSITE”) .
By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully.
Our Services may change, so sometimes additional terms or requirements may apply. Additional terms will be available with the relevant Services, (e.g. product dealines and events may change) and those additional terms become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services.
Using our Services
You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services.
Don’t misuse our Services. For example, don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only for non-commercial purposes and then only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you for any reason or for no reason at all. However, you can reasonably expect that we will stop providing services if we determine or suspect that you have failed to comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.
If you are interested in using our Services for commercial purposes, please contact us to obtain permission for commercial uses. Fees may be charged for commercial uses.
Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the solvers, benchmarks or other content you access. You may not use content from our Services outside of the TheCodeOfLearning.com website, irrespective of whether it is commercial or non-commercial use, unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services. By using, viewing, downloading or documenting anything related to TheCodeOfLearning.com you are agreeing to hold us harmless of any wrong doing.
Our Services share, execute, distribute and/or display some content that is not the WEBSITE’s. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to host content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But that does not necessarily mean that we review content, so please don’t assume that we do.
You agree to not upload, use or suggest others to upload or use any solver, benchmark or other content, if you have reason to believe that use of TheCodeOfLearning.com website for execution, copying, displaying, distributing or otherwise using such content could violate any intellectual property laws.

Your Content in our Services
Some of our Services allow you to submit content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content, subject to the licenses you grant hereunder.
When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give WEBSITE (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, execute, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services. Some Services may offer you ways to access, restrict access, and remove content that has been provided to that Service. Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Services.
Despite the foregoing grants of rights, the WEBSITE states that it intends not to distribute or publish source or executable code of solvers and/or benchmarks without permission of the owner. However, you understand that accidental or inadvertent disclosure of such information is possible and you hereby release and waive any claim that you might have now or in the future against the WEBSITE for any accidental or inadvertent disclosure of any confidential or secret information or any accidental or inadvertent distribution of content that you might upload or have uploaded onto TheCodeOfLearning.com.
