Terms of Use


With respect to your access and use of edheads.org, Edheads provides its services to you, subject to the following Terms of Use ("TOU"), which may be updated from time to time by Edheads without notice to you, and which updates become effective when posted. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these terms and conditions.

In addition, when using Edheads services, you and Edheads shall be subject to any guidelines or rules applicable to such sites or services that may be posted from time to time. All such guidelines or rules are hereby incorporated by reference into these TOU. In the event that any of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein conflict with such guidelines or rules, then these terms shall control.

Edheads has adopted the American Library Association's "Library Bill of Rights" as the basis for our use policy as it pertains to minors. The "right" to use Edheads includes free access to, and unrestricted use of, all the services and materials we have to offer. Every restriction on access to, and use of, these resources, based solely on the chronological age, educational level, literacy skills, or legal emancipation of users violates these rights. Parents—and only parents—have the right and responsibility to restrict access of their children—and only their children—to Edheads' resources. Parents who do not want their children to have access to certain activities or materials should so advise their children. Edheads staff, board or volunteers cannot assume the role of parents or the functions of parental authority in the private relationship between parent and child. Teachers and school districts are recognized to be acting in loco parentis and would therefore have the right to restrict access to minors. Edheads assumes no responsibility should minors access content on the Edheads' site which is later deemed inappropriate for their age level.

You agree to be bound by these TOU, and indicate such agreement by your use of any Edheads service.

1. Permitted Use. Subject to these TOU, Edheads hereby grants you the right to access and use edheads.org.

Parents and teachers are able to duplicate and make use of quizzes, score sheets and worksheets provided for use with the activities. You agree not to frame, or assist third parties in framing, any of the Web pages contained in edheads.org. Such framing is strictly prohibited under this Agreement.

Edheads reserves the right to terminate your access to any or all of the Communication Services at any time, without notice, for any reason whatsoever.
