Your Freedom Matters

  1. Our goal is to instigate creation of user-authored and free (both as in "freedom" and as in "free beer") repository of learnable human knowledge, therefore:
  2. We apply Wikipedia licence for content wherever possible (i.e. not bound by prior licences). It basically means that all content (e.g. texts, sounds and images, but not software, and not user activity data) created/published by users or us (Bubissimo Ltd) is available under Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-SA 3.0), except for personal documents, which are NOT visible by everybody and which are described below. Annotations created on personal documents may not be available under CC BY-SA 3.0, but be still copyrighted by the original personal document copyright holder, in which case you are responsible to ensure that you create and edit them within limits of Fair use.
  3. Second, it is important that you do not get trapped into vendor-lock in. Our scheduling algorithm uses relevant user activity data and feedback on repetitions. While Bubissimo Ltd owns this data, you are granted right to use it (your own repetitions data) under Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0). It basically means that for example if you decide to stop using BuboFlash, you may use your learning history in other, even competing software.
  4. Currently used sources of content other than users and Bubissimo Ltd, available under their respective licences, not Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-SA 3.0):
    1. Princeton Wordnet, which can be used in free and commercial applications in accordance with its licence
    2. Extended Wordnet, which can be used in free and commercial applications in accordance with its licence
    3. Shtooka Project, which can be used in free and commercial applications, according to their respective licences.
    4. Google Translate output which is credited and branded before post-editing as required (and here) during editing.
    5. Websites you browse and annotate - they are owned by current copyright holders and Bubissimo Ltd is not affiliated to their authors in any way. You use Buboflash software in the same way as you would use other internet browser software, like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer. As you create annotations on external websites - they are seen by other Buboflash users, so you must make sure they do not violate Fair use terms, with similar precautions you would apply when posting fragments on other user-authored content websites like Facebook.
    6. Your personal documents that you upload - you are responsible to use them according to their respective licences. By default only you can see documents that you upload and you decide who else can see it, but any annotations you create for your personal documents can be seen by everybody, like Amazon Kindle Public Notes. Note that even though you can let a friend see the content of your personal document, he or she cannot download it - Buboflash does not have any facility to share a file.
