STORAGE AND USE OF YOUR DOCUMENTS
We guarantee that we will not use your essay for any other purpose than as explained in these paragraphs, and the copyright of your essay always belongs to you. We are a UK company subject to UK law under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 and we take our obligations under this act very seriously.
When you scan a document using the Viper software, All Answers Limited will automatically add a copy of that document to our documents database for comparison purposes only. This improves the accuracy of future scans for you and other users. All scans made by you and other users of the Viper software will be compared to the document you have scanned. If a match is detected in your document, you and other users of the Viper software will see the percentage of the match and will not see the document itself - your document is kept confidential.
When you scan a document, you agree that 9 months after completion of your scan, we will automatically upload your essay to our student essays database which will appear on one of our network of websites so that other students may use it to help them write their own essays. You agree that any right you may have to remuneration for such use of documents is waived. You may not use the Viper Software to scan documents for which you do not hold sufficient intellectual property to be able to authorise us to use the documents in accordance with the terms of this licence.
