Terms of services

User accounts
You need an account for most activities on the Platform. Keep your password somewhere safe, because you’re responsible for all activity associated with your profile. If you suspect someone else is using your account, let us know. You have to be at least 16 years or older to use kemdikbud.org.
When you sign or create a petition via our platform, an account is created for you. All your campaign activities are then tied to this account. By “campaign” we mean petitions, all the activities you can do to promote your petitions via our platform or through third party sites and services, and any other action through our platform.

When setting up your account, you must provide accurate and complete information, including a valid email address. You have complete responsibility for your account and everything that happens on your account, including for any harm or damage (to us or anyone else) caused by someone using your account without your permission. This means you need to be careful with your password. You may not transfer your account to someone else or use someone else’s account without their permission. Inform us immediately upon learning that someone else may be using your account without your permission by contacting us through our Help Centre.

The kemdikbud.org platform is for people who are at least 16 years of age. If you are younger than 16 you may not set up an account by yourself, but we encourage you to invite a parent or guardian to create a campaign about areas of interest to you. If we discover that you have created an account and you are younger than 16, we will terminate your account.

User content rules
You’re responsible for what you post on kemdikbud.org. You should keep your campaigns and comments in line with our Community Guidelines and the law, and respect the intellectual property rights of others. It’s not something we want to do, but we can terminate your account for repeated or major offenses.
Follow our Community Guidelines: When posting content you must follow the Community Guidelines.

Abide by the law and respect rights of others: You cannot post any content that violates applicable local or national laws of your country, or international laws or regulations. You are solely responsible for any content you post via the kemdikbud.org platform and the consequences of posting it.

Enforcement by kemdikbud.org: If we are put on notice that your content violates the law or the rights of others (for example, if it is established that it is defamatory or violates privacy, intellectual property or publicity rights or others), if we discover that your content violates our Community Guidelines, or if we believe your content is inappropriate or objectionable, we may remove it from our platform, or we may make edits to bring your content into compliance. In the vast majority of cases, we will notify you and try to work with you to fix the issue before we take any of these actions (but we are not obligated to).

kemdikbud.org has discretion in enforcing these Terms. We may terminate or suspend your permission to use our platform and services or disable your account at any time, and with or without notice, for any material or repeated violation of these Terms, your failure to pay any fees when due, upon the request of law enforcement or government agencies, for extended periods of inactivity, for unexpected technical issues or problems, or for engagement by you in fraudulent or illegal activities. Upon any such termination we may delete your account, passwords and content and we may prevent you from further access to the platform and use of our services. Your content may still be available on the platform even if your account is terminated or suspended. You agree that we will have no liability to you or any third party for termination of your account, removal of your content or blocking of your access to our platform and services.

Posting user content
You retain ownership of content you post to kemdikbud.org, but you should make sure you’re allowed to share it. We’re allowed to make versions of your content publicly available to anyone through any media, and others can do the same. Be sure to make backups of your work too.
The content you submit on the platform is not confidential: Any content you submit or post on kemdikbud.org is likely to be publicly available, including all petitions you create and your comments to any petitions you signed (on the kemdikbud.org site, in apps and in social media pages). If you are concerned about other kemdikbud.org community members, or people you don’t know, seeing a particular message or other content of yours, please do not post it. If you do not wish to have your name publicly displayed in connection with a particular petition, you may select the option not to display your signature publicly. Please check out our Privacy Policy for more details on information we collect and share when you use the platform.

The content you post (including photos) remains yours, and you also allow us to reuse and share it: By submitting and posting content, you do not lose any ownership rights you may have in your content. However, you authorise us to share this content with anyone, distribute it on any platform and in any media, and to make modifications or edits to it as we see fit (e.g. for clarity or optimisation purposes). For example, we may shorten a petition title for it to appear on our homepage, reformat a petition for a video highlighting petition victories, or share the content with interested media. You also authorise us to allow others to do the same with your content. In legal language, by submitting or posting content on or through the kemdikbud.org platform, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display and distribute your content in any and all media or distribution methods (existing now or later developed). This includes making your content available to other companies, organisations or individuals who partner with kemdikbud.org for the syndication, broadcast, distribution or publication of content on other media. You represent and warrant that you have all the rights, power and authority necessary to authorise us to use any content that you submit. You also agree to all such uses of your content with no compensation paid to you.

Sharing campaigns: Except in very limited circumstances where we’ll expressly ask you not to, we encourage you to link to, post to social media and third party services, such as Facebook or Twitter, share via email, or otherwise copy and share individual petitions and campaigns of interest to you, but only for informational, non-commercial purposes. If you share another user’s petitions and campaigns, you may not make any modifications, and you may not remove any attributions. When you post content to any third party service through the features and functionalities of our platform (such as our apps or API), you will be subject to the terms of that third party service. If you want to remove any petition or content from a third party service, you should contact that third party service and request removal directly from them.

No user content storage: We are not a content-archiving service. We do not promise to store or make available on our platform any content that you or other users may post for any length of time. You are solely responsible for keeping backups of everything you post on the platform.

Open platform
Petitions and campaigns on kemdikbud.org represent the many opinions of millions of people. We don’t take responsibility for their views, nor do we monitor content for legality or accuracy. You’ll find links to other sites on kemdikbud.org – once you leave us, we’re not responsible for all the wild, wacky and wonderful things that can happen out there.
We are not responsible for the content of our users, and we do not monitor user content: Content posted by users comes from people, organisations and other various sources. We make no promises about the reliability of any source or the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of any user content nor do we endorse any campaigns or petitions or support any views, opinions, recommendations, or advice that may be posted by users. You acknowledge that certain petition starters may have commercial interests in their campaigns. We do not monitor or review petitions or other content submitted by users, or evaluate them for compliance with foreign or domestic laws and regulations. You therefore use the kemdikbud.org service and rely on any content you find at your own risk.

If you find any petition or other user content that violates our Community Guidelines, please use the “Report a policy violation” function on each petition page or file a Help Centre Request.

Links out: When you use our platform, you will find links to other websites that we don’t own or control. We are not responsible for the content or any other aspect of these third party sites, including their collection of information about you. You should also read their terms and conditions and privacy policies.
