JERRY GARCIA ARCHIVE LLC
July 22, 2022
Access to the Archive’s Collections is provided at no cost to you and is granted for scholarship and research purposes only. The Archive, at its sole discretion, may provide you with a password to access certain Collections, provided that you complete any required application process and provide accurate information in your application. You may use your password only to access the Collections in ways consistent with this Agreement — no other access to or use of the Site, the Collections, or the Archive's services is authorized. You agree not to interfere with the work of other users or Archive personnel, servers, or resources. Further, you agree not to recirculate your password to other people or organizations. Please report any unauthorized use of your password promptly to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you provide any content to the Archive, you grant the Archive a nonexclusive, royalty-free right to use that content. If you provide any content to the Archive by opting into a Deed of Gift, you grant the Archive all of the rights granted pursuant to the Deed of Gift.
We require that you only contribute files you own the rights to, have permission to add, or honestly believe to be fair use. Fair use is a legal term with a very specific meaning, not just what a person thinks sounds "fair." Please see this list of common misunderstandings of fair use to learn more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use
Additionally, when you submit content as part of the socially constructed website, we require you select the appropriate Deed of Gift and identify yourself as the rights holder or alternatively indicate if the contribution is in compliance with fair use doctrine.
When you contribute a file, you release and covenant not to sue the Archive and its owners, officers, employees, agents, and affiliates from any and all claims and demands arising out of or in connection with your use of the Archive and any contributions you make to the Archive, including but not limited to any claims for copyright infringement, trademark infringement, defamation, invasion of privacy, or right of publicity.
Scope and Acknowledgment
Copyright and Trademarks
Just as the variety and format of donated materials varies widely, so does available information concerning the origin and copyright ownership of the materials in the archive. Each item in the Archive is governed specifically by the Deed of Gift applicable to that item. Additionally, materials within the Archive contain Jerry Garcia, Grateful Dead, or other trademarks. Jerry Garcia trademarks are managed by the Jerry Garcia Music Arts LLC; all Grateful Dead trademarks are managed by Rhino Records, Inc; no use of the trademarks is allowed without permission.
Status of works on the Archive
Items have been added to the Archive only when we have received permission and the associated and signed Deed of Gift, or we have determined a work to be in the public domain, or we believe the way we have posted the item to be fair use as part of a non-commercial, educational site. The items represent the creativity of Jerry Garcia, his bands, and the artists, photographers and fans. Highly valuing the creative works in our collection, we diligently attempt to identify, locate and contact rights holders informing them of our intentions to support scholarship and our desires to license their works non-exclusively for nonprofit educational, scholarly, or private uses.
Despite significant and reasonable efforts, in some cases it has proved impossible to identify and make contact with rights holders. If you have information about an item you see in the Archive, including information about the copyright holder, please contact us at email@example.com and let us know.
Using things from the site
Unless the copyright status of an item in the Archive is in the public domain, the item is protected by copyright law. Many user-contributed items are licensed under a Creative Commons license, which allows you to use the item in various ways without contacting the copyright holder for permission. If an item is not in the public domain and does not have a Creative Commons license, any use that does not meet with the requirements of fair use under copyright law must be cleared with the copyright holder. All users of the Archive assume full responsibility for their use of archive materials, including obtaining any necessary permission from the copyright and/or trademark holders.
The Archive maintains a database of copyright holders for the Archive that users may search in order to contact rights holders for requests to use their work.
Contributing to the Archive
The Archive values and respects the work and artistry of the numerous musicians and artists who have created music, illustrations, photographs, and other work related to Jerry Garcia. We require that our members do as well, by only contributing files they own the rights to, have permission to add, or honestly believe to be fair use pursuant to the terms, warranties, and indemnification set forth above.
Some of the content available through the Archive may be governed by local, national, and/or international laws and regulations, and your use of such content is solely at your own risk. You agree to abide by all applicable laws and regulations, including intellectual property laws, in connection with your use of the Archive. In particular, you certify that your use of any part of the Archive's Collections will be limited to non-infringing or fair use under copyright law. If a Creative Commons or other license has been declared for particular material on the Archive, to the extent you trust the declaration and declarer (which will not be the Archive), you may use the content according to the terms and conditions of the applicable license.
In using the Archive's site, Collections, and/or services, you further agree (a) not to violate anyone's rights of privacy, (b) not to act in any way that might give rise to civil or criminal liability, (c) not to use or attempt to use another person's password, (d) not to collect or store personal data about anyone, (e) not to infringe any copyright, trademark, patent, or other proprietary rights of any person, (f) not to transmit or facilitate the transmission of unsolicited email ("spam"), (g) not to harass, threaten, or otherwise annoy anyone, and (h) not to act in any way that might be harmful to minors, including, without limitation, transmitting or facilitating the transmission of child pornography, which is prohibited by federal law and may be reported to the authorities should it be discovered by the Jerry Garcia Archive.
You agree that we may contact you from time to time with surveys or other questions regarding your opinions about and uses of the Archive, as well as with information we believe may be of interest to you. We encourage you to respond to these surveys because we value your input, which will assist us in improving the Archive. In addition, we request that, according to standard academic practice, if you use the Archive's Collections for any research that results in an article, a book, or other publication, you list the Jerry Garcia Archive as a resource in your bibliography.
While we collect publicly available Internet documents, sometimes authors and publishers express a desire for their documents not to be included in the Collections (by tagging a file for robot exclusion or by contacting us or the original crawler group). If the author or publisher of some part of the Archive does not want his or her work in our Collections, then we may remove that portion of the Collections without notice.
The Archive may immediately terminate this Agreement at its sole discretion at any time upon written notice (including via email) to you. Upon termination, you agree that the Archive may immediately deactivate any password it has issued to you and bar you from accessing the Collections or the Site.
The Archive may modify this Agreement from time to time, and your continued use of the Collections and/or the Site constitutes your acceptance of any and all modifications. The Archive will attempt to notify you of substantial modifications via the email address that you have registered with us, if any.
Because the content of the Collections comes from around the world and from many different sectors, the Collections may contain information that might be deemed offensive, disturbing, pornographic, racist, sexist, bizarre, misleading, fraudulent, or otherwise objectionable. The Archive does not endorse or sponsor any content in the Collections, nor does it guarantee or warrant that the content available in the Collections is accurate, complete, non-infringing, or legally accessible in your jurisdiction, and you agree that you are solely responsible for abiding by all laws and regulations that may be applicable to the viewing of the content. In addition, the Collections are provided to you on an as-is and as-available basis. You agree that your use of the Site and the Collections is at your sole risk. You understand and agree that the Archive makes no warranty or representation regarding the accuracy, currency, completeness, reliability, or usefulness of the content in the Collections, that the Site or the Collections will meet your requirements, that access to the Collections will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error free, or that defects, if any, will be corrected. We make no warranty of any kind, either express or implied.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Internet Archive and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, officers, directors, and employees from and against any and all liability, loss, claims, damages, costs, and/or actions (including attorneys’ fees) arising from your use of the Archive’s services, the site, or the Collections. You agree that this Agreement is governed by California law and that any suit arising from this Agreement will be brought in San Francisco, California, and you further agree that on the election and reasonable notice of either party any litigation shall be referred to arbitration pursuant to the California Code of Civil Procedure, §§1280 et seq. In addition, you agree that should any provision in the Agreement be found invalid, unlawful, or unenforceable, that provision shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions.
Under no circumstances, including, without limitation, negligence, shall the Archive or its parents, affiliates, officers, employees, or agents be responsible for any indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages arising from or in connection with the use of or the inability to use the Site or the Collections, or any content contained on the Site or in the Collections, or resulting from unauthorized access to the Collections or your transmissions of data, including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, use, data, or other intangibles, even if the Archive has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so some of the above may not apply to you.
We welcome your input. Please contact us with any comments or questions at: firstname.lastname@example.org

What Personal Information May the Archive Have on Its Computers and Systems?
Because the Archive uses standard web logging in its web servers, our web server may automatically recognize the domain name of each Visitor, each Visitor’s IP address, what Web page the Visitor requests, and the time of the request, along with a variety of information supplied by the visitor’s browser. See www.microsoft.com and www.netscape.com for information about the Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator browsers, and see www.apache.org for details about Web logs.
In addition, the Archive may collect the email addresses and messages of those who communicate with it via email or who enter email addresses in forms.
The Archive may collect personally identifying information when a Researcher registers for access to the Collections, including the Researcher’s name, address, telephone number, and email address, and the Researcher’s proposal for using the Collections.
The Archive may use "cookies" to track Users' activities on the Site and in the Collections. Cookies are small files that a server transfers to the hard drive of someone who visits a site and that the server can access when the person returns to the site.
The primary sources of content for the Collections are publicly accessible Web pages that were collected and donated by third parties, but the Archive will expand on such sources through its own collection activities. For instructions on removing a particular set of pages currently included in the Collections, please see our policies and procedures for page removal.
The communications between you and the Archive may pass through many machines, operating systems, programs, browsers, Web servers, networks, routers, Ethernet switches, Internet service providers, proxy servers, intranets, the public phone system, or other devices (collectively, "Devices") on your premises, at the Archive, and in between. Some of these Devices create logs of activities that are recorded on computer systems.
It is possible that the computers at the Archive could become compromised by others and that the information on the Archive’s computers could be collected and disseminated without the knowledge or consent of the Archive. While the Archive endeavors to block "hackers" from breaking into its machines, the Archive is not responsible or liable for any such unauthorized uses of the Archive or its data.
