Terms & Conditions The goal of intelligent pencil is to help busy leaders and mangers be aware and make sense of the debates, ideas and developments emerging in scholarly and popular publications that are of value to them. We aim to facilitate the sharing of knowledge with and between leaders and managers working in the “real world”, where ever it is. Our Terms and Conditions are designed to foster an environment of shared values, mutual respect and trust.
Copyright If you send us written, audio or video material for publication then you will retain the copyright of that material. At the same time, however, we do need you to grant Intelligent Pencil the right to publish and sometimes re-publish worldwide, in all formats, without charge (i.e. for free) and without termination. If you don’t want to do that please say so when you send us the material.
Content We need you to be responsible for any content you submit for publication, including any copyright infringements in your messages. Please do not post copyrighted material in your messages unless you yourself hold the copyright or have received permission from the author. We also need you to be responsible for the accuracy of any content that you provide.
Respect others Please be polite and respectful towards other authors, and remember that others may not always share your point of view. We want you to be clear and forthright of opinion in any publication but will take a dim view (British understatement here) of disruptive, offensive or abusive behaviour.
Moderators The moderators will undertake an investigation if requested by another contributor and will take action if they think there is a problem. That is they will remove a comment or not publish the material where they think it appropriate. Remember your style may seem exciting and energising to you and to us but we will work hard to ensure our publications do not offend innocent people. Please remember that many readers are not native English speakers; keep you language simple and clear for this sake.
Self Promotion Please do not use Intelligent Pencil for self-promotion in any form or format.
