Terms and Conditions


The terms of use agreement (the “Agreement”) governs your use of the audio archive and other digital content (the “Archive”) available through the Gay Spirit Radio Show Archive (the “GSR Archive”). When accessing an archived page, you will be presented with the terms of use agreement. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not use the GSR Archive’s Collections or its Web site (the “Site”).

Access to the GSR Archive is provided at no cost to you and is granted for educational, scholarship and research purposes only.

Some of the content available through the Archive may be governed by local, national, and/or international laws and regulations, and your use of such content is solely at your own risk. You agree to abide by all applicable laws and regulations, including intellectual property laws, in connection with your use of the Archive. In particular, you certify that your use of any part of the GSR Archive’s Collections will be limited to noninfringing or fair use under copyright law.

In using the GSR Archive’s site, content, and/or services, you further agree (a) not to violate anyone’s rights of privacy, (b) not to act in any way that might give rise to civil or criminal liability, (c) not to use or attempt to use another person’s password, (d) not to collect or store personal data about anyone, (e) not to infringe any copyright, trademark, patent, or other proprietary rights of any person, (f) not to transmit or facilitate the transmission of unsolicited email (“spam”), (g) not to harass, threaten, or otherwise annoy anyone, and (h) not to act in any way that might be harmful to minors, including, without limitation, transmitting or facilitating the transmission of child pornography, which is prohibited by federal law and may be reported to the authorities should it be discovered by the GSR Archive.

You agree that we may contact you from time to time with surveys or other questions regarding your opinions about and uses of the GSR Archive, as well as with information we believe may be of interest to you. We encourage you to respond to these surveys because we value your input, which will assist us in improving the GSR Archive. In addition, we request that, according to standard academic practice, if you use the GSR Archive’s Collections for any research that results in an article, a book, or other publication, you list the GSR Archive as a resource in your bibliography. Email us using the Contact Us page for more information on proper attribution or to share your published research.

The GSR Archive may immediately terminate this Agreement at its sole discretion at any time upon written notice (including via email) to you. Upon termination, you agree that the GSR Archive may immediately deactivate any password it has issued to you and bar you from accessing the Archive or the Site.

The GSR Archive may modify this Agreement from time to time, and your continued use of the Collections and/or the Site constitutes your acceptance of any and all modifications. The GSR Archive will attempt to notify you of substantial modifications via the email address that you have registered with us, if any.

You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Gary Spirit Radio Archive and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, officers, directors, and employees from and against any and all liability, loss, claims, damages, costs, and/or actions (including attorneys’ fees) arising from your use of the GSR Archive’s services, the site, or the Archive. You agree that this Agreement is governed by Connecticut law and that any suit arising from this Agreement will be brought in Hartford, Connecticut, and you further agree that on the election and reasonable notice of either party any litigation shall be referred to arbitration pursuant to the Connecticut Code of Civil Procedure, §§2255 et seq. In addition, you agree that should any provision in the Agreement be found invalid, unlawful, or unenforceable, that provision shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions.

Under no circumstances, including, without limitation, negligence, shall the GSR Archive or its parents, affiliates, officers, employees, or agents be responsible for any indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages arising from or in connection with the use of or the inability to use the Site or the Archive, or any content contained on the Site or in the Archive, or resulting from unauthorized access to the Archive or your transmissions of data, including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, use, data, or other intangibles, even if the Archive has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so some of the above may not apply to you.

This Agreement, the Privacy Policy, and other policies posted on the Site constitute the full and complete agreement between you and the GSR Archive and are not intended to inure to third-party beneficiaries.

We welcome your input. Please contact us with any comments or questions.
