Ownership Rights and Use.

You will retain any ownership rights you have in any Content that you upload to our Services.  However, by uploading that Content, you agree to grant Us and other users certain rights, which are described below.

License to Us.

By uploading Content to our Services, you grant to Us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license to use that Content (including to reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works, display and perform it) in connection with our Services and our business, including for the purpose of promoting and redistributing part or all of our Service.

License to Other Users.

By uploading Content to our Services, you also grant each other user of our Services a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to access your Content through our Services, and to use that Content, including to reproduce,      distribute, prepare derivative works, display, and perform it, only as enabled by a feature of the Service. For clarity, this license does not grant any rights or permissions for a user to use your Content independent of our Services.

 

Duration of Licenses.

The licenses that you grant to Us and to other users pursuant to this Agreement will remain in effect for so long as that Content remains available on our Services, and for a commercially reasonable period of time after you or we remove or delete your Content from our Services.  Nevertheless, you expressly agree that We may retain, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of your Content after they have been removed or deleted. 

Right to Monetize.  By uploading your Content to our Services, you grant to Us the right to monetize your Content through our Services (and such monetization may include displaying ads on or within Content or charging users a fee for access). This Agreement does not entitle you to any payments or other consideration. 

When You Remove Your Content.  You may remove your Content from our Services at any time. You may make a copy of your Content before removing it. You must remove your Content if you no longer have the ownership rights for that Content that is required by this Agreement. 

When We Remove Your Content.  We may delete any of your Content from our Services at any time in our sole discretion, including without limitation in the following circumstances:  (1) if your Content is in breach of any of the terms and conditions or this Agreement, including without limitation our Policies, or (2) if your Content may cause harm to Us, other users, or third parties. We will notify you of the removal and our reasons for our action unless we believe that to do so: (a) would breach the law or the direction of a legal enforcement authority or would otherwise risk legal liability for Us; (b) would compromise an investigation or the integrity or operation of our Services; or (c) would cause harm to any user, other third party, or Us. 

 

Copyrights.   If you believe your copyright has been infringed on our Services, please send us a notice by sending an email to copyright@springspot.co.  We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement according to our Policies. We may terminate Your rights to use our Services, or any other user’s rights, based upon infringement of copyrights. 

If You Want to Close Your Account.  You may stop using our Services at any time. If you want to close your Account, please email cancel@springspot.co.   If you close your Account, your Content will no longer be made available to other users through our Services.  We retain the right to keep and use copies of that Content as described in this Agreement.

If We Suspend or Close Your Account.  We may suspend or terminate your Account and your rights to use some or all of our Services at any time in our sole discretion, including without limitation if you breach this Agreement, if We are required to do so to comply with a legal requirement or a court order, or if We believe that there has been conduct that creates (or could create) liability or harm to any user, other third party, or Us.   We will notify you of any suspension or termination of your Account, unless we believe that to do so would violate the law or the direction of a legal enforcement authority, would compromise an investigation conducted by us or by a legal enforcement authority, or would compromise the integrity, operation or security of our Services, or would cause harm to any user, other third party, or Us.  

Other Important Legal Terms.

OUR TOTAL LIABILITY FOR ANY CLAIMS ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THE SERVICE IS LIMITED TO FIVE HUNDRED UNITED STATES DOLLARS ($500).

Indemnity

To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Us, our affiliates, officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney's fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to our Services; (ii) your violation of any term of this Agreement; (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right; or (iv) any claim that your Content caused damage to a third party.

Third-Party Links

Our Services may contain links to third-party websites and online services that are not owned or controlled by Us. We have no control over, and we assume no responsibility for, such websites and online services. When you leave our Services, it is your responsibility to read the terms and privacy policy of each third-party website and online service that you visit.

Changing this Agreement

 

We may change this Agreement at any time in our sole discretion, and those changes will take effect immediately.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we may change this Agreement to reflect changes to our Services or how we conduct business, when we add or remove products or features from our Services, for legal, regulatory, or security reasons, or to prevent abuse or harm.

If we change this Agreement, we will provide notice of the changes and an opportunity to review them, except when we begin to offer a new product or feature, or in urgent situations, such as preventing ongoing abuse or responding to legal requirements. If you do not agree to any such change, you should remove any Content you have uploaded and stop using our Services.  Your continuing to have Content on our Services, or your continued use of our Services, confirms you agreement to any such changes.

 

If your use of our Services ends, the following terms of this Agreement will continue to apply to you: “Other Legal Terms”, “About This Agreement”, and the licenses granted by you will continue as described under “Duration of License”.

Severance

 

If it turns out that a particular term of this Agreement is not enforceable for any reason, this will not affect any other terms.

No Waiver

If you fail to comply with this Agreement and we do not take immediate action, this does not mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as the right to take action in the future).

Interpretation

In these terms, “include” or “including” means “including but not limited to,” and any examples we give are for illustrative purposes.

Governing Law

All claims arising out of or relating to these terms or the Service will be governed by California law, except California’s conflict of laws rules, and will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of San Mateo County, California, USA. You and We consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
