4. YOUR PASSWORD, USERNAME, PIN AND SECURITY
When you register as a Member, you will be asked to select a user name and password you can then use to access your account and log on to and/or participate in areas of the Site reserved for Members only. We reserve the right to reject user names that are offensive, defamatory or otherwise unsuitable.
You can update certain details via your account. In your profile, you can edit your Membership profile and control parts of this e.g. the information other users can see. However, you cannot change your date of birth.
You accept it is your sole responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of your password and you are responsible for all activity that occurs under this. IdeasTap Ltd is unable to check the identity of people acting as Members or using Members' areas and will not be liable where your password is used by someone else. You should make sure you are the only person using your password and you agree to notify us of any unauthorised use of your password and any other breach of security as soon as you become aware of it.
If you use any functionality that IdeasTap Ltd makes available that allows people to contact you or leave comments, you are accepting these may be abusive, untrue or unpleasant. Please be careful when using any messaging and do not reveal personal information such as your home or work contact details, or where you live. You can use the complaints procedure if any issues arise (see Section 10). Functionality is in place that enables you to block unwanted contact from other users of the site and report inappropriate content.
Back to top
You may have the chance to apply for Creative Briefs and the Ideas Fund in the Opportunities section of the Site.

Whether particular Applications are used is entirely IdeasTap Ltd's decision. These decisions may be taken by or with one or more of the partner organisations (where this has been agreed between IdeasTap Ltd and the partner organisations).
IdeasTap Ltd may withdraw, cancel or amend the Application or the process without prior notice to ensure compliance with legal, regulatory or other similar requirements or for any reason outside IdeasTap Ltd's control. Any changes will be posted on the Site.

You now grant IdeasTap Ltd a non-exclusive, worldwide, irrevocable licence (for the full period of any rights in the User Content) to use, display, publish, transmit, copy, make derivative works or podcasts from, edit, alter, store, re-format the User Content for such purposes.

All decisions are final and IdeasTap Ltd will not enter into any discussions or correspondence about why User Content has been rejected.
IdeasTap Ltd may, in appropriate circumstances, and at its sole discretion, remove or disable access to User Content that appears to be legally or otherwise problematic e.g. it infringes the copyright or other intellectual property or privacy rights of others, is defamatory etc. or for any other reason. In relation to all reviews and comments posted on the Site, authors consent to IdeasTap Ltd editing such reviews to ensure compliance with the Terms.
IdeasTap Ltd does not keep any "comments" that are not accepted for publication but may retain other User Content even if this is not published.

17. NEW FUNCTIONALITY
The relaunched IdeasTap offers users new functionality. The items of functionality which affect the Terms & Conditions include:
- Opening up the site
- Privacy Settings
- Messaging and notifications
- Auto-creation of groups
Opening up the site
IdeasTap is now an open site, meaning that most of the site can now be viewed without needing to log-in or register. The principle is that registering and logging in is now about doing (eg uploading to portfolios, entering creative briefs, commenting) rather than seeing (eg reading articles, watching videos, browsing through user portfolios).
All new IdeasTap members (those who have registered after 1 February 2010) will have their profiles and portfolios automatically set to “Public”. See Section 16 Part 2 below for details of what individual privacy settings mean.
All existing IdeasTap members (those who registered before 1 February 2010) will have their profiles set to “Members”. We strongly recommend that they change this setting to “Public” so that they can be found by potential employers, who may not have IdeasTap profiles.
We do recommend that some information is kept to “Members” or “Network” – such as your email address. With the new messaging functionality there is now less need for your email to be publicly visible. See Section 15 Part 3 for details of the new messaging system.
The new site offers a number of privacy settings on a multitude of different areas of your profile and portfolio, enabling you to control what information is public and what is limited to IdeasTap members or those in your Network. The settings include:
Public: This means that anyone browsing the site can see whatever information you choose this setting for. For example, if you set your overall profile to “Public” then it will be visible to anyone, whether they are logged in to IdeasTap or just a casual browser.
Members: This means that only people logged in to IdeasTap will be able to see this information. For example, if you set your Location to “Members”, then only logged-in IdeasTap members will be able to see which region you live in.
Network: This means that only people in your IdeasTap network of contacts can see this information. See Section 15 Part 4 for details of the new networking functionality. For example, if you set your Disciplines to “Network”, then only people in your IdeasTap network of contacts will be able to see what you do (or aim to do) for a living.
Private: This means that no-one can see the information. You cannot set your overall profile to “Private”, but you can set the vast majority of the information within it to “Private”. For example, if you set your name to “Private” then only your username will be visible. If you set every possible part of your profile and portfolio to “Private”, then the only items that will be visible to all users – whether logged in or not and whether part of your network or not – will be your profile photo, username and network (see Section 15 Part 4 below for details of the new networking functionality).
Messaging and notifications
The relaunched IdeasTap now offers registered users private messaging. This means that all users have an IdeasTap inbox. Any logged-in member can send a message to any other logged-in member unless one user has chosen to block another user. The exception to this is for under 16 members associated with one of our partner organisations, in which case only IdeasTap admins and their partner organisation can send them messages. Equally, under 16 members can only send messages to IdeasTap administrators and the partner organisation they are members of.
Inboxes have a limit of 30 personal messages and 30 notifications. Personal messages are messages sent from one member to another. Notifications are system messages – for example when someone leaves a comment on your profile – and messages from groups and events you’re signed up to. If you want to save more than 30 messages and notifications, ensure that notifications are copied to your personal email by updating the “Preferences” section in your “Profile”. This way even when they’re pushed out of your IdeasTap inbox, they’ll still be in your personal email inbox.
If you don’t want to receive these notifications in your personal inbox, you can turn this function off in the “Preferences” section of your “Profile”.
IdeasTap members now have the ability to build networks of IdeasTap contacts. Your network can contain a maximum of 500 contacts. You can message up to 20 of these contacts at a time. You can invite your entire network to join a group or event you have created.
If you find someone you would like to add to your network, select “Add to network” on their profile. They will then be sent a notification. If they accept your request, you will be added to their network and they will be added to yours. This will enable you to follow some of their activity on IdeasTap via your network activity feed in your profile. You can decide which of your activities appear in your feed in the “Preferences” section of your “Profile”.
Auto-creation of groups
Our partner organisations and IdeasTap administrators reserve the right to create groups and add people to them without sending an invite. In some cases, users may not be able to choose to leave these groups.
