IV. DESCRIPTION OF FactPipe FEATURES
FactPipe Users rate the truth of articles and other media content (“News') contained on external websites. Based upon the ratings assigned to News by FactPipe Users, the FactPipe algorithm calculates a Trust Score ™ for each News item. The most basic FactPipe Feature is the TScore ™, but many advanced and powerful Features are also available on the FactPipe Website. Examples include Comments provided by Motivisit Users, including the interaction between Users through Comments strings. Users may also sort, categorize, or view News items TScores™ by geographically, educationally, or otherwise limiting or weighing responses or ratings provided by other Users[this might not be true, we may save this option for people that pay for our data]. The purpose of the FactPipe Website is to explore collective intelligence in determining the Truth of News items, and that collective intelligence is embodied within the TScore™;. For a fuller and more complete description of the Feature available on the FactPipe Website, please spend some time navigating the various links on the Website itself. FactPipe may expand, change, suspend or discontinue, or add additional Features for any reason, at any time. FactPipe may also impose limits on certain features and Features or restrict access to parts or all of the Features without notice or liability.
