You retain full copyright to any documents that you submit to the Administrator for inclusion in the Gloria-Mundi document database. By submitting a document you grant Gloria-Mundi a limited, non-exclusive license to display on the Gloria-Mundi site information derived from the content of those documents, including but not limited to the Title, Authors’ names and contact information, the text of the abstract and bibliographic references. The license you grant extends until such time that the Administrator has acted on a request by you to remove the document from the Gloria-Mundi documents database (see more on this in the next paragraph).

At any time you may request that the Administrator remove from the Gloria-Mundi documents database a document you have previously submitted for inclusion, and the Administrator must comply with that request within a reasonable interval of time from when the request is received by the Administrator. You acknowledge that even after a document has been removed from the Gloria-Mundi database by the Administrator, members of Gloria-Mundi may nevertheless retain copies of that document they have previously downloaded or placed in their Gloria-Mundi cabinet or bookshelf.
You assert that to the best of your knowledge at the time that you submit a document to the Administrator for inclusion in the Gloria-Mundi document database that you have the right to do so, with knowledge of the above uses to which that document may be put once it has been added to the Gloria-Mundi document database.
You retain full copyright to any documents that you upload to your personal Gloria-Mundi bookshelf or cabinet. Gloria-Mundi will display no information from such documents in search results of the Gloria-Mundi documents database. No members may download or store such documents unless you provide access within a Gloria-Mundi Risk circle to which you belong or which you create.
At any time you may remove from the Gloria-Mundi site any document that you have uploaded to your bookshelf or cabinet. You acknowledge that even after you have removed a document that you have uploaded from your bookshelf or cabinet other Gloria-Mundi members with whom you have shared that document may retain copies of that document if they have downloaded it previously or placed a copy in their bookshelf or cabinet.
You assert that to the best of your knowledge at the time that you upload a document to your Gloria-Mundi cabinet or bookshelf that you have the right to do so, with knowledge of the above uses to which that document may be.
You acknowledge that any documents that you remove or the Administrator removes at your request may subsequently exist in backup copies of the Gloria-Mundi site for a limited period of time.
You acknowledge that the Administrator has the right to ban any individual from Gloria-Mundi membership who contributes content in violation of copyright restrictions.
