The Joomla Site Showcase is a free service provided for the Joomla community to show off the power and extensibility of Joomla. Any person or company is welcome to submit their site for inclusion in the showcase. There are some basic rules that all sites must comply with in order to qualify for inclusion in the showcase. Failure to comply may result in removal from the showcase. By submitting a resource or a review to the Joomla Site Showcase, you agree to be bound by these rules.
Inclusion in the Joomla Site Showcase is a privilege, not a right, and any site may be removed at any time for any reason. Remember, we will only accept sites that showcase Joomla well. Self-promotion is acceptable but abuse of this by either flooding the showcase with entries or other means may be grounds for removal. If you develop Joomla sites, we recommend you submit no more than 10 sites per month or you may be red-flagged. We reserve the right to update or modify these guidelines at any time without any notice.
Ownership of Copyrights and Intellectual Property
You acknowledge that Open Source Matters or its content providers, own the copyright and all other intellectual property rights to the materials and reviews in the Showcase unless otherwise expressly indicated. You agree not to copy, reproduce, download, disseminate, publish, or transfer content in any form or by any means, except with our prior written permission. You further agree not to collect any information from the Showcase using automated means (e.g., spiders or scraping).
By providing content for the Showcase or a comment, you grant Open Source Matters a worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free, non-exclusive and limited license to reproduce, edit, publish, translate, and distribute in any medium whatsoever. You represent and warrant that: (a) you are the author of such content or review and have the right to grant this license; and (b) the content or review does not infringe any patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary right of any other party.
Submitted showcase listings that violate one or more of the standards listed above will not be considered for inclusion in the Joomla Site Showcase. Inclusion is at the sole discretion of the showcase team and Open Source Matters.
We also reserve the right, but not the obligation, to monitor the content of the Joomla Site Showcase to determine compliance with our rules. Any published listing that is found to be in conflict with the rules, as determined by Open Source Matters in its sole discretion, will:
1) Be immediately deactivated (unpublished).
2) Owner will be informed of the reason and allowed 14 days to either rectify the problem or request removal from the showcase. We reserve the right to permanently remove any listing that is still in conflict with the rules as determined in our sole discretion.
If the editors attempt to contact the owners of a submission or listed firm and no reply is received in 14 days, the resource will be permanently removed from the Joomla Site Showcase.
Unless required by law, no personal information from Joomla! Resources Directory members be shared with third parties, unless this is the direct wish of said member. Open Source Matters will divulge any information collected from you when required to do so by law. In the event that Open Source Matters or substantially all of its assets are acquired, your information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
