By using VIA, you agree to these Terms. If you do not agree to any of the Terms, you can’t use VIA.

Vietnam Is Awesome can change the Terms at any time as wished. We keep a historical record of all the changes on our terms. If a change is material, VIA will inform you before the term will be in effect. By using VIA on or after that effective date, you agree to the new Terms. If you do not agree to them, you must delete your account before they take effect, otherwise your usage of the site and its contents will be subjected to the new Terms.

Content rights & responsibilities

You own the rights to the content you create and post on VIA.

By posting content to VIA, you give us a nonexclusive license to publish it on VIA Services, including anything reasonably related to publishing it (like storing, displaying, reformatting, and distributing it). In consideration for VIA granting you access to and use of the Services, you agree that VIA may enable advertising on the Services, including in connection with the display of your content or other information. We may also use your content to promote VIA, including its products and content. We will never sell your content to third parties without your explicit permission.

You’re responsible for the content you post. This means you assume all risks related to it, including someone else’s reliance on its accuracy, or claims relating to intellectual property or other legal rights.

By posting content you didn’t create to VIA, you are representing that you have the right to do so.

We can remove any content you post for any reason.

You can delete any of your posts, or your account, anytime.

We reserve all rights in VIA’s look and feel. Some parts of VIA are licensed under third-party open source licenses. We also make some of our own code available under open source licenses. As for other parts of VIA, you may not copy or adapt any portion of our code or visual design elements (including logos) without express written permission from VIA unless otherwise permitted by law.
