Hello Guest!
Terms Of Service for The Smar Grid - Short URL

To ensure the smooth operation of The Smar Grid and to ensure that your rights and the rights of The Smar Grid are protected, we have created a series of legal agreements that will provide the necessary protection.

The content on this Site is provided by The Smar Grid and its licensors and content providers. The "Site" refers to http://www.smargrid.com and all other Web properties owned or operated by The Smar Grid now and in the future (or anything that replaces, supplements, or supersedes the Web as the site of The Smar Grid).

TERMS OF SERVICE: The basic agreement is the Terms of Service ("TOS") which you are now reading. The TOS set out the legal terms by which The Smar Grid makes its web site and services available. When you visit The Smar Grid or other sites, you will automatically be bound by the TOS. By using the Site, you accept our then current TOS, as revised and updated.

FOR CONTRIBUTORS OF MATERIAL/CONTENT: If you contribute code, there is an additional agreement that you need to agree to. The Contributors Agreement gives The Smar Grid permission to edit and post your material/Content, gives The Code Project some basic assurances about your code, and allows you to protect your intellectual property by specifying what license arrangements you want to make with End Users who would like to use the code you have submitted.

FOR CONTRIBUTORS OF DOCUMENTS (EG. ARTICLES): If you contribute documents (in any form or media), you give us the rights necessary to edit and post and maintain your material (and the edited version), and to prevent unauthorized uses by End Users of material that we edit. End Users are given rights to read your material, but no rights to republish or otherwise distribute your material. The Smar Grid will retain your copyright notices, and can publish your name and site ID with your posting. If we edit your material, we will own the edited version, and you will own your original version. We cannot publish our edited version other than on the Site, without your consent. If you desire End Users to be able to contact you, you should advise The Code Project so your contact information can be published. If your material has been previously published, that publisher may have rights, and if so, you must obtain all consents before posting on The Smar Grid. If your material contains images, audio, or video, we require that you have obtained consents from all persons depicted, seen, or heard, the owners of any places depicted, and any other rights holders.

FOR USERS OF DOCUMENTS: We require that you respect our Contributors. In general, all rights, except the right to read/view/listen to posted documents for your personal use are reserved to the Contributors, or to us.

 PRIVACY POLICY: Finally, we also have a privacy policy that you should be aware of that can be found in website.

What is The Smar Grid?

Through its network of Web properties, The Smar Grid provides you with access to a variety of resources:

  6. A variety of other services

(collectively "Services"). All Services offered by The Smar Grid, including any updates, enhancements, new features, and/or the addition of any new Web properties, are subject to the TOS.

Our Site is a 'free' site for the community to share material and experiences. In order to enable The Smar Grid to host and operate the Site, and keep its use free to you, we need to impose legal terms on you that establish our basic rights and responsibilities between us, and restrict your ability to take actions against us that could increase our costs of operating the site, or impose onerous obligations on us.


We need you to comply with our TOS in order to fix practical and effective rules for the orderly functioning of the Site as we see it.

Your use of the Services is subject to your continued compliance with these TOS and any other agreements, guidelines or rules that The Smar Grid may post in respect of its Services. We can terminate your access to the Site without warning if you fail to comply with the TOS or any other applicable Agreement, guidelines or rules published by The Smar Grid.


To protect our Contributors, our general rule is that unless expressly stated, all rights in any Content or Documents posted on The Smar Grid are reserved by the Contributor and/or The Smar Grid, and that our Services are for your personal and non-commercial use. Except as expressly authorized by The Smar Grid and/or its Contributors, you may not modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, create derivative works from, transfer, or sell any Code or Documents obtained from our Site.
