Which ranking factors are used on NEOVEL?
As mentioned, part of what we do is organize Novels and rank the Novels on NEOVEL. The factors we use for that purpose are detailed at this URL.
We chose these factors because we believe they are appropriate, and fair given the purpose of NEOVEL. However, we are always interested concerning any suggestion you may have on that matter.
As mentioned below, Novels as well as any other information published on NEOVEL may be deleted if they are offensive, illegal or in violation of the GTC and therefore not available on NEOVEL anymore.
Given the above, it is essential that you do not in any way artificially promote Novels by automated means or by any other mean, or influence the ranking in any way except using NEOVEL pursuant to its purpose.
How to avoid IP infringement and why it is important?
Intellectual property is the law that protects authors and their work. Without intellectual property there would be no books, pictures, or creation of any kind!
NEOVEL is committed to protect authors and their rights and requests from every user of NEOVEL that they avoid any kind of behavior that could somehow lead to copyright or other intellectual property rights infringement.
You therefore agree that you will not in any way infringe NEOVEL or other users or third party’s’ intellectual property rights, including those on the Novels. You will not for instance in any way pursue the following activities:
If you publish any content on NEOVEL, including any Novel, opinion or information (the “Content”), you provide NEOVEL with a worldwide non-exclusive license to reproduce and represent the Content for the purpose of providing NEOVEL to you and to other users and of improving NEOVEL, without any limitation as to the number of copies or of representations or the means that are used for that purpose. Among other things NEOVEL may copy the Content on its servers , display it on NEOVEL to the public or to a restricted number of users, online or offline, generate temporary copies of the Content on any computer, through an app or on a website of any kind, on digital media, computers smartphones, touchpad, screens of any kind.

NEOVEL may sublicense such rights to any third party using NEOVEL or any third-party service provider taking part in the performance or provision of NEOVEL. Evidently, we are for instance not allowed to allow any third-party publisher to publish your Novel outside of NEOVEL.
You also provide other users with a worldwide non-exclusive license to reproduce and represent the Content for the purpose of using NEOVEL, without any limitation as to the number of copies or of representations or the means that are used for that purpose.

The above-mentioned license is granted until you take actions to delete the Content, using available tools on NEOVEL. You acknowledge that any Content which is not deleted by you will remain accessible on NEOVEL, even if you cease using NEOVEL.
You shall be solely responsible for your own Content and the consequences of posting or publishing it.

Age and capacity requirement and how we protect vulnerable users?
YOU MAY NOT USE NEOVEL IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 12. IF YOU ARE UNDER 18 YEARS OLD YOU MAY USE IT ONLY UNDER THE SUPERVISION AND CONTROL OF THE PERSON WHO HAS PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY ON YOU.
WHEN SIGNING UP YOU WILL AMONG OTHER THINGS DISCLOSE YOUR DATE OF BIRTH, ACCORDING TO WHICH WE MIGHT BLOCK OR RESTRICT ACCESS TO SOME OF THE CONTENT. INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR AGE IS THEREFORE ESSENTIAL TO NEOVEL.
As Novels are uploaded by users, NEOVEL is not in capacity to verify whether they are suitable for you. However, NEOVEL requires from users when uploading Novels that they identify any Content which might not be suitable for under aged users, using the following categories:
You agree that NEOVEL will not allow access to Novels identified by you as NOT SUITABLE FOR ALL USERS to users under the age of 18 and to anyone not having an account.
Given the above, you commit (i) not to access any Content which is not suitable for your age or for you based on the above-mentioned categories; and (ii) to accurately identify the category under which the Content you are publishing falls when uploading it.
Does NEOVEL control the Content?
NEOVEL does not control the Content you publish. You are entirely and solely responsible for what you publish allowing you to be as free as possible in your creative work.
However, NEOVEL could implement some random controls from time to time, which could lead to some Content not being published or being deleted from NEOVEL if it is offensive, illegal or in violation of the GTC. In such case, we will inform you of that deletion.
Does publishing Content make you NEOVEL’s employee?
Of course not! You remain entirely free to publish Content or not and to choose the Content you wish to publish for as long as it is not offensive or illegal or in violation of the GTC. You are also free to publish the concerned Content elsewhere and to cease publication whenever you want. Consequently, you remain totally independent and may not in any way be considered as our employee.
Incidentally, we recommend that, before publishing any Content, you determine your status and consult any legal advisor on that matter. Please be aware that such status will have consequences on your incomes, your taxes and your social security for instance.
Do you have any obligation concerning publishing, which are not mentioned in the GTC?
In addition to any obligation expressed or implied in these GTC, you may have to comply with additional obligations regarding the Content, pursuant to applicable regulation. Such obligations could for instance concern any prior legal deposit, regulatory body notification or legal notice or third party, such as coauthors or translators’ authorization
What should you do when you identify illegal or offensive Content on NEOVEL?
If you somehow believe that any Content is offensive, illegal or in violation of the GTC, please send us an email at the following address email@example.com or use any available other means in NEOVEL for that purpose mentioning the concerned Contents and reasons why you believe the Content is offensive, illegal or in violation of the GTC.
What should you know when you share your opinion and comments?
You may share your opinion about a Content on NEOVEL in comments or any related section, which will be seen by other users who are interested in the concerned Content.
We do not in any way retribute users who share such opinions and comments. Comments on a specific Content will be displayed according to the date they were published and will be accessible until you delete it.
We do not control such comments. However, NEOVEL could implement some random controls from time to time which could lead to some comment or other related sections not being published or being deleted from NEOVEL if it is offensive, illegal or in violation of the GTC. In such case, we will inform you of that deletion.
If you find that any specific comment concerning your Content or another user’s Content could not be authentic or in violation of the GTC, you may contact us on that matter by giving us details information by sending us an email at the following address firstname.lastname@example.org or by using any mean available in NEOVEL for that purpose.

We reserve the right to suspend your access to NEOVEL if we have reasons to believe that you could be violating the GTC. We may also suspend NEOVEL from time to time for instance for maintenance purposes. In addition, access NEOVEL may also be suspended by third party service providers.
What should you know about your income on NEOVEL?
Publishing Novels may generate income for you based on the profit created by your Novels. You will find useful information on the way such income is calculated at [NB A COMPLETER] (coming soon).
Such income might be subject to taxes such as VAT or income tax for which you are entirely responsible for pursuant to the law applicable in your country.
We therefore recommend that you identify those applicable taxes and laws before publishing any Content.
