Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International Public License

By exercising the Licensed Rights (defined below), You accept and agree to be 
bound by the terms and conditions of this Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 
International Public License ("Public License"). To the extent this Public License 
may be interpreted as a contract, You are granted the Licensed Rights in 
consideration of Your acceptance of these terms and conditions, and the Licensor 
grants You such rights in consideration of benefits the Licensor receives from 
making the Licensed Material available under these terms and conditions.

Section 1 – Definitions.

    a. Adapted Material means material subject to Copyright and Similar Rights that 
    is derived from or based upon the Licensed Material and in which the Licensed 
    Material is translated, altered, arranged, transformed, or otherwise modified 
    in a manner requiring permission under the Copyright and Similar Rights held 
    by the Licensor. For purposes of this Public License, where the Licensed 
    Material is a musical work, performance, or sound recording, Adapted Material 
    is always produced where the Licensed Material is synched in timed relation 
    with a moving image.
    b. Adapter's License means the license You apply to Your Copyright and Similar 
    Rights in Your contributions to Adapted Material in accordance with the terms 
    and conditions of this Public License.

    essentially the equivalent of this Public License.
    d. Copyright and Similar Rights means copyright and/or similar rights closely 
    related to copyright including, without limitation, performance, broadcast, 
    sound recording, and Sui Generis Database Rights, without regard to how the 
    rights are labeled or categorized. For purposes of this Public License, the 
    rights specified in Section 2(b)(1)-(2) are not Copyright and Similar Rights.
    e. Effective Technological Measures means those measures that, in the absence 
    of proper authority, may not be circumvented under laws fulfilling obligations 
    under Article 11 of the WIPO Copyright Treaty adopted on December 20, 1996, 
    and/or similar international agreements.
    f. Exceptions and Limitations means fair use, fair dealing, and/or any other 
    exception or limitation to Copyright and Similar Rights that applies to Your use of the Licensed Material.
    g. License Elements means the license attributes listed in the name of a 
    Creative Commons Public License. The License Elements of this Public License 
    are Attribution and ShareAlike.
    h. Licensed Material means the artistic or literary work, database, or other 
    material to which the Licensor applied this Public License.
    i. Licensed Rights means the rights granted to You subject to the terms and 
    conditions of this Public License, which are limited to all Copyright and 
    Similar Rights that apply to Your use of the Licensed Material and that the 
    has authority to license.
    j. Licensor means the individual(s) or entity(ies) granting rights under this 
    Public License.
    k. Share means to provide material to the public by any means or process that 
    requires permission under the Licensed Rights, such as reproduction, public 
    display, public performance, distribution, dissemination, communication, or 
    importation, and to make material available to the public including in ways 
    that members of the public may access the material from a place and at a time 
    individually chosen by them.
    l. Sui Generis Database Rights means rights other than copyright resulting from 
    Directive 96/9/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 March 
    1996 on the legal protection of databases, as amended and/or succeeded, as 
    well as other essentially equivalent rights anywhere in the world.
    m. You means the individual or entity exercising the Licensed Rights under this 
    Public License. Your has a corresponding meaning.

Section 2 – Scope.

    a. License grant.
        1. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Public License, the Licensor 
        hereby grants You a worldwide, royalty-free, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive, 
        irrevocable license to exercise the Licensed Rights in the Licensed Material 
        to:
            reproduce and Share the Licensed Material, in whole or in part; and
            produce, reproduce, and Share Adapted Material.
        2. Exceptions and Limitations. For the avoidance of doubt, where Exceptions 
        and Limitations apply to Your use, this Public License does not apply, 
        and You do not need to comply with its terms and conditions.
        3. Term. The term of this Public License is specified in Section 6(a).
        4. Media and formats; technical modifications allowed. The Licensor authorizes 
        You to exercise the Licensed Rights in all media and formats whether now 
        known or hereafter created, and to make technical modifications necessary 
        to do so. The Licensor waives and/or agrees not to assert any right or 
        authority to forbid You from making technical modifications necessary to 
        exercise the Licensed Rights, including technical modifications necessary 
        to circumvent Effective Technological Measures. For purposes of this 
        Public License, simply making modifications authorized by this 
        Section 2(a)(4) never produces Adapted Material.
        5. Downstream recipients.
            A. Offer from the Licensor – Licensed Material. Every recipient of the 
            Licensed Material automatically receives an offer from the Licensor 
            to exercise the Licensed Rights under the terms and conditions of this 
            Public License.
            B. Additional offer from the Licensor – Adapted Material. Every recipient 
            of Adapted Material from You automatically receives an offer from the 
            Licensor to exercise the Licensed Rights in the Adapted Material under 
            the conditions of the Adapter’s License You apply.
            C. No downstream restrictions. You may not offer or impose any additional 
            or different terms or conditions on, or apply any Effective 
            Technological Measures to, the Licensed Material if doing so restricts 
            exercise of the Licensed Rights by any recipient of the Licensed Material.
        6. No endorsement. Nothing in this Public License constitutes or may be 
        construed as permission to assert or imply that You are, or that Your use 
        of the Licensed Material is, connected with, or sponsored, endorsed, or 
        granted official status by, the Licensor or others designated to receive 
        attribution as provided in Section 3(a)(1)(A)(i).

    b. Other rights.
        1. Moral rights, such as the right of integrity, are not licensed under this 
        Public License, nor are publicity, privacy, and/or other similar personality 
        rights; however, to the extent possible, the Licensor waives and/or agrees 
        not to assert any such rights held by the Licensor to the limited extent 
        necessary to allow You to exercise the Licensed Rights, but not otherwise.
        2. Patent and trademark rights are not licensed under this Public License.
        3. To the extent possible, the Licensor waives any right to collect royalties 
        from You for the exercise of the Licensed Rights, whether directly or 
        through a collecting society under any voluntary or waivable statutory or 
        compulsory licensing scheme. In all other cases the Licensor expressly 
        reserves any right to collect such royalties.

Section 3 – License Conditions.

Your exercise of the Licensed Rights is expressly made subject to the following 
conditions.

    a. Attribution.

        1. If You Share the Licensed Material (including in modified form), You must:
            A. retain the following if it is supplied by the Licensor with the 
            Licensed Material:
                i. identification of the creator(s) of the Licensed Material and any 
                others designated to receive attribution, in any reasonable manner 
                requested by the Licensor (including by pseudonym if designated);
                ii. a copyright notice;
                iii. a notice that refers to this Public License;
                iv. a notice that refers to the disclaimer of warranties;
                v. a URI or hyperlink to the Licensed Material to the extent reasonably 
                practicable;
            B. indicate if You modified the Licensed Material and retain an indication 
            of any previous modifications; and
            C. indicate the Licensed Material is licensed under this Public License, 
            and include the text of, or the URI or hyperlink to, this Public License.
        2. You may satisfy the conditions in Section 3(a)(1) in any reasonable 
        manner based on the medium, means, and context in which You Share the 
        Licensed Material. For example, it may be reasonable to satisfy the 
        conditions by providing a URI or hyperlink to a resource that includes 
        the required information.
        3. If requested by the Licensor, You must remove any of the information 
        required by Section 3(a)(1)(A) to the extent reasonably practicable.

    b. ShareAlike.

    In addition to the conditions in Section 3(a), if You Share Adapted Material 
    You produce, the following conditions also apply.
        1. The Adapter’s License You apply must be a Creative Commons license with 
        the same License Elements, this version or later, or a BY-SA Compatible 
        License.
        2. You must include the text of, or the URI or hyperlink to, the Adapter's 
        License You apply. You may satisfy this condition in any reasonable 
        manner based on the medium, means, and context in which You Share 
        Adapted Material.
        3. You may not offer or impose any additional or different terms or 
        conditions on, or apply any Effective Technological Measures to, Adapted 
        Material that restrict exercise of the rights granted under the Adapter's 
        License You apply.

Section 4 – Sui Generis Database Rights.

Where the Licensed Rights include Sui Generis Database Rights that apply to Your 
use of the Licensed Material:

    a. for the avoidance of doubt, Section 2(a)(1) grants You the right to extract, 
    reuse, reproduce, and Share all or a substantial portion of the contents of 
    the database;
    b. if You include all or a substantial portion of the database contents in a 
    database in which You have Sui Generis Database Rights, then the database in 
    which You have Sui Generis Database Rights (but not its individual contents) 
    is Adapted Material, including for purposes of Section 3(b); and
    c. You must comply with the conditions in Section 3(a) if You Share all or a 
    substantial portion of the contents of the database.

For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 4 supplements and does not replace Your 
obligations under this Public License where the Licensed Rights include other 
Copyright and Similar Rights.

 Section 5 – Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitation of Liability.

    a. Unless otherwise separately undertaken by the Licensor, to the extent possible, 
    the Licensor offers the Licensed Material as-is and as-available, and makes 
    no representations or warranties of any kind concerning the Licensed Material, 
    whether express, implied, statutory, or other. This includes, without limitation, 
    warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, 
    non-infringement, absence of latent or other defects, accuracy, or the presence 
    or absence of errors, whether or not known or discoverable. Where disclaimers 
    of warranties are not allowed in full or in part, this disclaimer may not 
    apply to You.
    b. To the extent possible, in no event will the Licensor be liable to You on any 
    legal theory (including, without limitation, negligence) or otherwise for any 
    direct, special, indirect, incidental, consequential, punitive, exemplary, or 
    other losses, costs, expenses, or damages arising out of this Public License 
    or use of the Licensed Material, even if the Licensor has been advised of the 
    possibility of such losses, costs, expenses, or damages. Where a limitation 
    of liability is not allowed in full or in part, this limitation may not apply 
    to You.

    c. The disclaimer of warranties and limitation of liability provided above shall 
    be interpreted in a manner that, to the extent possible, most closely 
    approximates an absolute disclaimer and waiver of all liability.

Section 6 – Term and Termination.

    a. This Public License applies for the term of the Copyright and Similar Rights 
    licensed here. However, if You fail to comply with this Public License, then 
    Your rights under this Public License terminate automatically.

    b. Where Your right to use the Licensed Material has terminated under 
    Section 6(a), it reinstates:
        1. automatically as of the date the violation is cured, provided it is cured 
        within 30 days of Your discovery of the violation; or
        2. upon express reinstatement by the Licensor.
    c. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 6(b) does not affect any right the 
    Licensor may have to seek remedies for Your violations of this Public License.
    For the avoidance of doubt, the Licensor may also offer the Licensed Material 
    under separate terms or conditions or stop distributing the Licensed Material 
    at any time; however, doing so will not terminate this Public License.
    d. Sections 1, 5, 6, 7, and 8 survive termination of this Public License.

Section 7 – Other Terms and Conditions.

    a. The Licensor shall not be bound by any additional or different terms or 
    conditions communicated by You unless expressly agreed.
    b. Any arrangements, understandings, or agreements regarding the Licensed Material 
    not stated herein are separate from and independent of the terms and 
    conditions of this Public License.

Section 8 – Interpretation.

    a. For the avoidance of doubt, this Public License does not, and shall not be 
    interpreted to, reduce, limit, restrict, or impose conditions on any use of 
    the Licensed Material that could lawfully be made without permission under 
    this Public License.
    b. To the extent possible, if any provision of this Public License is deemed 
    unenforceable, it shall be automatically reformed to the minimum extent 
    necessary to make it enforceable. If the provision cannot be reformed, it 
    shall be severed from this Public License without affecting the enforceability 
    of the remaining terms and conditions.
    c. No term or condition of this Public License will be waived and no failure to 
    comply consented to unless expressly agreed to by the Licensor.
    d. Nothing in this Public License constitutes or may be interpreted as a 
    limitation upon, or waiver of, any privileges and immunities that apply to 
    the Licensor or You, including from the legal processes of any jurisdiction 
    or authority.
