The materials contained on this website may be protected by applicable copyright and trademark law by either ourselves or the respective holders of the relevant intellectual property rights.

We expressly reserve the right to update and amend our Terms of Service from time to time without formal notice to you. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review our Terms of Service occasionally to familiarize yourself with any modifications. Your continued use of the Platform after such changes will constitute acknowledgment of the modified Terms of Service to which you shall abide by and be bound to.

You warrant that you are at least 18-years-old and you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts. If you are under 18-years-old, you warrant that you have obtained consent from your parent or guardian, and they agree to be bound by these Terms on your behalf.

By accessing or using the Service, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms, then you may not access the Service.

We reserve the right to update, modify, or change the service at our discretion without notice to you. We will not be liable to you or any third party should we exercise such right.

Content

Our Platform allows you to post, link, store, share, and otherwise make available certain information, text, graphics, videos, or other material (“Content”). You are responsible for the Content that you post to the Platform, including its legality, reliability, and appropriateness.

You grant to us a universal license to host, use, distribute, copy, publicly display, and translate your Content on our Platform. You also agree that we can utilize your Content in marketing and promotions for the Platform with your expressed permission.

You agree that we may remove portions of your Content or entirely disable your page for any reason at our discretion. This can be due to copyright takedown notices, serious content complaints, impersonation, or posting content we believe is harmful or otherwise unsuitable for our Platform.

You represent and warrant that: (i) the Content is yours (you own it) or you have the right to use it and grant us the rights and license as provided in these Terms, and (ii) the posting of your Content on or through the Platform does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights or any other rights of any person. Further, you warrant that: (i) the Content will not cause you or us to breach any law, regulation, rule, code or other legal obligation; (ii) the Content will not or could not be reasonably considered to be obscene, inappropriate, defamatory, disparaging, indecent, seditious, offensive, pornographic, threatening, abusive, liable to incite racial hatred, discriminatory, blasphemous, in breach of confidence or breach of privacy; (iii) the Content will not be unsolicited, undisclosed or unauthorized advertising; (iv) the Content does not contain software viruses or any other computer code, files, or programs designed to interrupt, destroy, or limit the functionality of any computer software, hardware or telecommunications equipment; and (v): the Content does not bring us or the Platform into disrepute.

You acknowledge and agree that all Content you provide on the Platform will be publicly available information. You bear the risks involved with such public disclosures.

You are responsible for backing up your Content as we do not provide publicly accessible backup services. We are not liable for lost Content that could occur from, but not limited to, accidental user deletion or service provider failures.

Accounts and Passwords

When you create an account with us, you must provide an accurate email address that is kept current for us to provide important account information when necessary. Failure to do so constitutes a breach of our Terms of Service, which may result in the cancellation of an active subscription (loss of features) or termination of your account.

We have a zero-tolerance policy for fraud. Fraudulent purchases within our Platform will lead to permanent account deletion. If you believe your account may have been compromised or see a suspicious charge contact us immediately to resolve this issue.

You are solely responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access our Platform to prevent unwarranted access to your account and modification of your page. For this reason, you agree to not disclose your password to anyone, including our staff, who will never ask you for your password.

You may not use as a username the name of another person or entity, or that is not lawfully available for use, a name or trademark that is subject to any rights of another person or entity other than you without appropriate authorization, or a name that is otherwise offensive, vulgar or obscene.

If your account becomes inactive and unused for an extended period, we reserve the right to delete your account to free up that username to the public domain. We want to keep an active community on the platform and not have usernames taken up and not used. We will contact you on the email address provided in your account before taking such action.

Links to Other Sites

Due to the link-sharing nature of our Platform, pages hosted on our site will frequently link to third-party websites. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that site. Note that we do not operate these external sites. We generally do not pre-screen content posted by users of our Platform. We have no control over and assume no responsibility or liability for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party sites or services.

Furthermore, the inclusion of links to external websites does not imply our endorsement of those websites. You acknowledge and agree that when you access other websites on the Internet, you do so at your own risk. You are responsible for reading the Terms of Service and Privacy Policies of any third-party websites or services you visit.

Intellectual Property Policy

Our Platform takes claims of copyright infringement seriously that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the DMCA) or any other applicable intellectual property legislation or laws. If you believe your copyright is being infringed on you can submit a DMCA notice to
[email protected] containing the following information:

  • One or more URLs on our website that you believe contain your copyrighted work.
  • Information regarding the proper identification of your copyrighted work for verification, which may include a URL.
    Your contact details, including full name, address, phone number, and email address.
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
  • A statement that the information in the written notice is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are the owner, or agent authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
  • A physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner, or representative to act on their behalf, along with the date.

Properly filed DMCA complaints containing all of the above information will result in the removal of said infringing content hosted on our platform. It can also result in the infringer receiving a complete copy of the complaint, including personal contact information, as part of the public record you consent to by providing the DMCA notice.

Knowingly misrepresenting material on our Platform as infringing on your copyright could result in you being held liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) under Section 512(f) of the DMCA.

Users identified as being repeat infringers, in accordance with the DMCA or other applicable law, may have their account or page disabled and removed entirely at our sole discretion.

Termination

We may terminate or suspend your account immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation if you breach the Terms.

Upon termination, your right to use the Platform will immediately cease. If you wish to terminate your account, you may discontinue using the Platform.

All provisions of the Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.

We shall not be liable to you or any third party for any claims or damages arising out of any termination or suspension or any other actions taken by us in connection therewith.

Indemnification

As a condition of your access to and use of the Platform, you agree to indemnify our successors and us and assigns for all damages, costs, expenses and other liabilities, including but not limited to legal fees and expenses, relating to any claim arising out of or related to your access to and use of the Platform or your breach of these Terms and any applicable law or the rights of another person or party.

This indemnification section survives the expiration of your registration and applies to claims arising both before and after the registration ends.

Limitation of Liability

In no event shall our Platform or its suppliers be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of data or profit, or business interruption) arising out of the use or inability to use the materials on our website, even if an authorized representative has been notified orally or in writing of the possibility of such damage. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or limitations of liability for consequential or incidental damages, these limitations may not apply to you.

Personal Data

We respect your privacy and only process personal data with regards to and in accordance with our Privacy Policy. By continuing to use our Platform you have acknowledged and agree to the data practices as outlined by the policy.

Termination and Cancellation

You may delete your account at any time by clicking the Delete Account button in your Account section in your user dashboard. Once your account is deleted, the data will remain in an inactive state for a brief period of time before being permanently removed from our system. You may request to have your data deleted immediately by contacting us at [email protected]

You may cancel a recurring paid subscription at any time from the Billing page in your dashboard found on the Account page. Upon cancellation, your account will go into a grace period where you will still have access to the pro services and features until the purchased time period has ended. We do not offer refunds for subscriptions, including for unused time on your account.

You agree that we may cancel, terminate, or disable any pages, accounts, or subscriptions for any reason solely based on our discretion without formal notice as outlined in this Terms of Service. You agree that we will not be liable to you or any third-party for such termination.

Refunds

Except when required by law, paid Subscription fees are non-refundable.

Governing Law

Our Terms of Service shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales within the United Kingdom, where our offices are located.

Our failure to enforce any right or provision of this Terms of Service agreement will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of the terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions will remain in effect. The terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Platform, and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have between us regarding the Platform.

International Use

Accessing our Platform from locations outside of the United Kingdom is on the user’s initiative, who is solely responsible for compliance with applicable local laws in doing so. Despite our Platform being accessible from locations around the world, we do not suggest that the material found on it is appropriate or suitable for use where the content could be prohibited and must be avoided in such cases.

Fees for Use

Our Platform is a freemium subscription-based service that offers both free and paid plans for our users.

All subscription charges from our platform will be billed monthly or annually on a recurring basis until canceled based on the selected plan. Switching between active plans occurs on a prorated basis for both upgrades and downgrades based on the unused time remaining on your plan. Therefore, it is possible to not incur a new charge until necessary if enough previously charged credit can be applied during a plan switch.

As we continue development on the Platform by introducing additional features, we reserve the right to adjust the prices of our subscription plans in the future. For users with active plans, we will give at least (45) days’ notice via email before the next billing cycle in which the changes will take effect.
