USING THE SERVICES INDICATES THAT YOU HAVE BOTH READ AND ACCEPT THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THESE TERMS, DO NOT ACCESS OR OTHERWISE USE THE SERVICES.
IMPORTANT: THESE TERMS CONTAIN A DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION PROVISION, INCLUDING A CLASS ACTION WAIVER THAT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. DEPENDING ON YOUR JURISDICTION, THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you are of age under the laws of your jurisdiction and/or lawfully able to enter into contracts. If you are not legally able to enter into contracts, you may not use the Services at any time or in any manner, or submit any information to Adtaq or the Services.
If you are entering into these Terms on behalf of a business entity or organization, you represent and warrant that you have the legal authority and capacity to bind such business entity or organization. If you are not authorized nor deemed by law to have such authority, you assume sole personal liability for the obligations set out in these Terms.
Adtaq can change, update, add or remove provisions of these Terms at any time by posting the updated Terms on the Site and by providing a notice on the Services. We will ask for your express consent to the updated Terms where we are legally required to do so, and our notice to you will explain how you can accept or reject the changes. If you do not agree with any of the updated Terms, you must stop using the Services. Unless otherwise required by law, the updated Terms are effective as of the day of posting.
Adtaq may make changes to the Services at any time, without notice to you. If you object to any changes to the Services, your sole recourse will be to cease using the Services. Continued use of the Services following posting of any such changes will indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and satisfaction with the Services as modified. We also reserve the right to discontinue the Services, or any component of it, at any time without notice to you. We will not be liable to you or any third party should we exercise our right to modify or discontinue the Services.
Please note that if you are under paid-subscription services with us, in the event we change the price for the services which you have previously agreed to pay or if we substantially change the services you are paying for, we will also notify you of such changes as contemplated in Section 3(a) above. Any changes will become effective after your then-current subscription expires or terminates. If you do not agree with such changes and you communicate this to us in accordance with the notification, we will not automatically renew your subscription even if you previously agreed to automatic renewal for payment.
If You have entered into a separate executed (i.e. signed) agreement for services with Adtaq (collectively and individually, “Contract”), such Contract shall supersede these Terms. In the event of any conflict between these Terms and the Contract, the Contract will prevail. In cases where the Contract does not address specific provisions included in these Terms, these Terms will apply, supplementing the Contract.
Visitors may browse the Site in accordance with these Terms but will not have full access to the Services without first becoming “Registered Users.”
In order to access certain features of the Services you will be required to become a Registered User. A “Registered User” is a User who has registered an account with us (your “Account”). As a Registered User you choose what information you may make public or showcase. By registering as a User you represent that you are not barred from using the Services under these Terms, the laws of Gibraltar, your place of residence or any other applicable jurisdiction.
In registering for the Services, you agree to (i) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services’ registration form (the “Registration Data”); and (ii) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. You agree that all notices and communications between Us will be sent to the email address You provide. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Adtaq has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Adtaq has the right to suspend or terminate your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof) for breach. You agree not to create an Account using a false identity or information. You agree that you shall not have more than one Account at any given time. You agree not to register for an Account on behalf of an individual other than Yourself, or register for an Account on behalf of any group or entity unless you are authorized to bind such person, group, organization, or entity to these Terms. By registering another person, group, organization, or entity you hereby represent that you are authorized to do so. You agree not to create an Account or use the Services if you have been previously removed by Adtaq, or if you have been previously banned from any of the Adtaq properties.
When You register for the Services, You will choose a login (email) and be iossued a password. You may use the Services or modify Your Content and data only through such login and password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Your password and for any and all activities which occur using Your credentials and/or under your Account. Adtaq reserves the right to establish an Account verification process to verify the account and/or any information provided. You agree to immediately notify Us of any unauthorized use of Your Account or any other breach of security known to (or reasonably suspected by) You at [email protected]. Adtaq shall be entitled to monitor your username and password and, at its discretion, require you to change it. If you use a username and password that Adtaq considers insecure or inappropriate, Adtaq will be entitled to require this to be changed and/or terminate your Account. Adtaq reserves the right to remove or reclaim any usernames at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to, claims by a third party that a username violates the third party’s rights. It is also Your responsibility to make sure that Our domain(s) (including “Adtaq.com”) are not included in any spam block list used by You or Your mail provider. You are required to perform all necessary security configuration and management tasks (1) for Your site(s) and all domains, web pages or IP addresses which You are hosting through the Services, and (2) to protect Your Content (defined below) and data, including that of Your customers and/or end users hosted through the Services. You are responsible for management of updates and security patches, any application software or utilities installed, any files accessible via Your site(s), and the configuration of any Adtaq-provided security utilities.
At the time of initial registration, You will select from the list of available Services the service plan(s) to which You wish to subscribe (each a “Subscription”). All Subscriptions to Services are subject to formal acceptance by Adtaq. Your Subscription to the Services will be deemed accepted by Adtaq when Adtaq delivers a confirmation of the Subscription to You. Adtaq reserves the right to refuse to provide You with any Service for any reason. Notwithstanding Our Uptime Guarantee, Adtaq also reserves the right to interrupt access to the Services to perform regular and emergency maintenance as needed. You may order additional Services at any time, provided that You agree to pay the then-current fees for such additional Services. All additional services shall be considered “Services” hereunder. All Services provided are subject to availability and to these Terms. For as long as you agree to these Terms and abide by them, you may use the Services. These Terms apply to all Users of the Service, including Visitors and Registered Users, who are also contributors of User Content. The Services are licensed, not sold, to you.
The Services are protected by copyright laws throughout the world. Subject to your agreement, and continuing compliance with these Terms, and any other relevant Adtaq policies, Adtaq grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable limited license subject to the limitations below to use the Services and/or download, and use a copy of any Apps or client-software on a device or computer that you own or control and to run such copy solely for your own internal business or individual purposes only. You agree not to use the Services for any other purpose.
You may not: (i) remove any copyright, trademark or other proprietary notices from any portion of the Services; (ii) reproduce, modify, prepare derivative works based upon, distribute, license, lease, sell, resell, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, stream, broadcast or otherwise exploit the Services except as expressly permitted by Adtaq; (iii) decompile, reverse engineer or disassemble the Services except as may be permitted by applicable law; (iv) link to, mirror or frame any portion of the Services except as expressly permitted by Adtaq; (v) cause or launch any programs or scripts for the purpose of scraping, indexing, surveying, or otherwise data mining any portion of the Services or unduly burdening or hindering the operation and/or functionality of any aspect of the Services; or (vi) attempt to gain unauthorized access to or impair any aspect of the Services or its related systems or networks.
Your Subscription or commencement of the Services shall begin upon confirmation to You and receipt of lawful funds, whichever comes earlier. The Subscription initial term’s length is chosen by You and shall be indicated when You subscribe to Our Services. The Subscription may not be terminated by You during the Initial Term (and any renewals thereof) except in the event of a breach by Adtaq. After the Initial Term, the Subscription shall automatically renew for successive terms, equal in length to the Initial Term, unless terminated or canceled by either party as provided herein.
Subject to next section, Adtaq reserves the right to change prices for paid Subscriptions at any time and does not provide price protection or refunds in the event of promotions or price decreases. Any pricing changes will become effective after your then-current Subscription expires or terminates. You understand that if We agree to provide Services to You in the future after your Subscription terminates for any reason, the amount You paid under any prior term or time period is not determinative of the amount You will pay should We provide Services to You again. It is Your responsibility to check Our Site for plan or price changes should You wish to take advantage of plan or price changes which may have occurred. Adtaq does not automatically update Your Subscription plan. All upgrades or downgrades will be performed at Your request and may include modification of Fees (defined in PAYMENTS below) or require reinitiating service with Us.
To facilitate continuity of the Services to you, each paid Subscription contains automatic renewal terms. Adtaq will automatically renew your paid Subscription as per the Subscription period of your choosing (each a “Subscription Term”), on the anniversary of that date that Adtaq first charges your Account for the first Subscription fee, and, as authorized by you during the Subscription sign-up process, Adtaq will charge your Account with the applicable Subscription fee and any sales or similar taxes that may be imposed on your Subscription fee payment (unless you cancel prior to the anniversary date). Each Subscription renewal period is for the same Subscription Term as the prior one, unless otherwise agreed between you and Adtaq. IF YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION, YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICES WILL BE SHUT OFF ONCE YOUR THEN CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION TERM EXPIRES. Adtaq reserves the right to modify pricing at any time (but not the price in effect for your then-current Subscription Term), upon advance notice to you. If you have not canceled your Subscription or turned off the auto-renew function within the specified time after receiving notice of a price change, your Subscription will auto-renew at the price indicated in your notice.
YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME, AND SUCH CANCELLATION SHALL BECOME EFFECTIVE UPON EXPIRATION OF YOUR THEN-CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION TERM. You agree and understand that you will be charged Subscription fees until the expiration of your then-current Subscription Term and SUBSCRIPTION FEES WILL NOT BE REFUNDED, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, SUBJECT TO APPLICABLE LAW. You will not be eligible for a pro-rated refund of any portion of the Subscription fees paid for any unused days of the then-current Subscription Term. If you have any problems or concerns with your cancellation please contact us at [email protected] for assistance.
If you purchase any Services that we offer for a fee, either on a one-time or on a Subscription basis (collectively “Fees”), you agree and consent to Adtaq’s use of third-party payment providers for billing and processing online payments (see below), and you agree to pay the applicable Fees for the Services (including, without limitation, periodic fees for Subscriptions) as they become due, plus all related taxes, and to reimburse us for all collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts. Unless separately negotiated by You and Us, and confirmed by separate written agreement, the initial and recurring Fees for the Services selected by You shall be as provided in the initial on-line order form. All set-up fees and special programming fees are non-refundable. Unless otherwise indicated, we may invoice Fees for Services in advance. Failure to make payment of Fees for Services when due may result in the suspension or termination of Services.
Services are billed on an automatic, auto-renewal and recurring basis unless and until you follow Adtaq’s cancellation procedure set forth in this Agreement. Your obligation to pay fees continues through the end of the Subscription Term (defined in AUTOMATIC RENEWAL TERMS above). Our Subscriptions may be subject to usage limits. You agree and understand that we verify use of the Service periodically. If as part of a routine verification process, we determine that Usage exceeds the current amount of usage limits purchased, we reserve the right to invoice you for the additional use. We may contact you to discuss your current plan and other options available to you. You agree to upgrade to a higher usage plan if necessary.
At the time of registration, You must select a payment method. By providing a payment method, You expressly authorize Adtaq to charge said payment method at regular intervals subject to Your particular Subscription. Adtaq reserves the right to contract with a third party to process all payments. Such third party may impose additional terms and conditions governing payment processing. If You do not pay all Fees when due, Your account will be deemed past due. For any past due Fees, Adtaq reserves the right to charge You interest at one and one-half percent (1.5%) or the highest rate allowed by applicable law, whichever is lower, per month of the unpaid amount, until paid.
You agree to pay any and all taxes, including personal property, value added, or sales taxes, resulting from Your use of the Services. Adtaq is not responsible for any bank fees incurred by You due to Your use of check cards, automatic payment services, insufficient funds, and any and all other fees your financial institution may impose due to Your use of the Services. If Adtaq should receive less than full payment of the Fees due to taxes, bank charges, transfer fees, or the like, Adtaq will invoice You for the difference between payment received and the Fees due. You also agree to pay all attorney and collection fees arising from Adtaq’s efforts to collect any past-due Fees.
If you cancel any Service prior to the expiration of the pre-paid Fees, You understand and agree that Adtaq, at its sole discretion, may not issue You any refund whatsoever, including but not limited to any remaining pre-paid Fees, set up Fees, and/or special programming Fees. Any refunds, if any, will be refunded to the original method of payment only.
If you do not pay on time or if Adtaq cannot charge your payment method for any reason, Adtaq reserves the right to either suspend or terminate your Subscription, access to the Services, and/or Account and terminate these Terms.
Coupons and Discount Codes. From time to time, Adtaq may offer coupons or other discount codes which may be used when signing up for Services with Us. Coupons and discount codes are for first-time customers of Adtaq only and must be used at the time of Your initial purchase with Us – they may not be applied after commencement of the Services. Unless expressly provided, such coupons and discount codes may not be used toward upgrades to Your account. Any account We deem to be attempting unauthorized coupon or discount code use may be subject to Termination for Cause (see TERMINATION below).
We may offer programs allowing our users to earn service credits and rewards (“Rewards”) on their Accounts.
Please refer to our Referral Program Terms as these may be amended from time to time, before participating in our Rewards’ program. The Referral Program Terms are hereby incorporated by reference.
Adtaq may terminate your Subscription in its sole discretion at any time for any reason or no reason (“Termination without Cause”). In such case, Adtaq will provide You with thirty (30) days written notice before the discontinuation of Services. If Adtaq cancels your Subscription pursuant to any of the terms outlined in these Terms, with the exception of Termination without Cause, Adtaq shall not refund to You any fees paid or prepaid in advance of such cancellation and You shall be obligated to pay all fees and charges accrued prior to the effectiveness of such cancellation. In the event that Adtaq terminates the Agreement for cause, all prepaid Fees will be forfeited and are not refundable. The termination of your Subscription does not relieve You of Your obligation to pay any Fees accrued or payable to Adtaq prior to the effective date of termination of your Subscription.
In addition to Adtaq’s right to terminate your Subscription provided elsewhere in these Terms, Adtaq may terminate your Subscription effective immediately if, based on Adtaq’s sole judgment, it determines that You or any of Your end users: (i) have breached the Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) or Anti-Spam Policy, (ii) have infringed or violated any intellectual property right or privacy or publicity right of a third party, (iii) have not complied with any applicable law, statute or regulation, or (iv) have uploaded, published or disseminated any images, text, graphics, code or video which Adtaq considers illegal or high risk, in its discretion, or (v) breached these Terms. Nothing contained in these Terms is intended to, or shall, impose any duty or obligation upon Adtaq to monitor or review Your Content (defined in Section 12) or the content of Your end users at any time. You remain solely responsible for Your Content, and any liability generated therefrom.
The termination of your Subscription will end Your access to the Services and Your license to the Materials. Adtaq shall not be liable to You or to any third party for termination of the Services permitted under these Terms. Upon termination of your Subscription, Adtaq reserves the right to maintain copies of Your data files and records for archival purposes but does not undertake any obligation to do so. Adtaq reserves the right to impose an early termination charge for all Services terminated prior to the last day of the billing cycle.
If either party cancels or terminates your Subscription for any reason, You shall be solely responsible for making all necessary arrangements for securing a replacement service provider and timely moving all electronic data, graphics, images, video or text to the new service provider.
Adtaq will not have any liability whatsoever to you for any suspension or termination, including for deletion of Content. All provisions of the Terms, which by their nature should survive, shall survive termination of the Service, including without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, and limitation of liability. You may close your Account by using the feature provided in the Services or, in the alternative, by emailing us at [email protected]. We will proceed to close your Account and send you an email confirmation.
To use our Services, you agree to and warrant that you will comply at all times with our Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) and our Anti-Spam Policy (“Policies”) as these may be amended from time to time, which regulate prohibited and/or acceptable practices relating to the use of our Services, including limitations on User Content, prohibited activities, system abuse and security.
If you do not agree with our Policies, you must discontinue use of the Service. The Policies are hereby incorporated by reference.
Adtaq does not permit copyright-infringing activities and infringement of intellectual property rights on the Services, and pursuant to the safe-harbor provisions provided by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”), Adtaq will remove User Content if properly notified that such User Content infringes on another’s intellectual property rights (please refer to our Copyright Policy).
Adtaq reserves the right to remove User Content without prior notice.
In other words: If someone is stealing your copyrights and you let us know, we will remove that content.
You are responsible for the information, text, opinions, messages, comments, audio visual works, motion pictures, photographs, animation, videos, graphics, sounds, music, software, Apps, and any other content or material that You or your end users submit, upload, post, host, store, or otherwise make available (“Make Available”) on or through the Services (collectively, “Your Content,” “Content” or “User Content”). You may not Make Available on the Services any material protected by copyright, trademark, or any other proprietary right without the express permission of the owner of such copyright, trademark or other proprietary right owned by a third party, and the burden of determining whether any such right protects any material is on you. You shall be solely liable for any damage resulting from any infringement of copyrights, trademarks, proprietary rights, violation of contract, privacy or publicity rights or any other harm resulting from any User Content that you make or submit. As between you and us, you own your User Content and you have full responsibility for all User Content you make or submit, including its legality, reliability and appropriateness, while using the Services. You hereby grant to Adtaq a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, fully paid-up, worldwide license (including the right to sublicense through multiple tiers) to use, reproduce, process, adapt, publicly perform, publicly display, modify, prepare derivative works, publish, transmit and distribute each of your User Content, or any portion thereof, in any form, medium or distribution method now known or hereafter existing, known or developed, and otherwise use and commercialize the User Content in any way that Adtaq deems appropriate, without any further consent, notice and/or compensation to you or to any third parties, for purposes of providing the Services to you.
Adtaq will not actively monitor Content being hosted by Adtaq, although Adtaq, at its sole discretion, may elect to electronically monitor its network and may disclose any content or records concerning Your Account as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation, or other governmental request or to properly operate Our network and protect any of Our customers. Adtaq will investigate complaints of a violation of a third-party right or of the AUP. Adtaq will cooperate with those attempting to minimize Internet abuse and reserves the right to institute “filters” or other mechanisms for that purpose. Adtaq will cooperate with law enforcement authorities and reserves the right to notify such authorities if it suspects that You or any of Your end users are engaged in illegal activities. Nothing contained in this Section, or anywhere in these Terms, is intended to bestow any rights on any third party, and no third parties shall be entitled to enforce any terms of these Terms between us, the parties.
You acknowledge and expressly agree that Adtaq will not be liable to You or any of Your end users for any action Adtaq takes to remove or restrict access to the Services for any alleged violation of the AUP, or exercising its rights as a Good Samaritan under the Telecommunications Act of 1996 (47 U.S.C. § 230(d)) or under the DMCA.
Adtaq may, at its sole discretion, immediately terminate Your Account and access to the Services, and terminate these Terms for cause, if Your conduct violates our Policies (See Section 10), or if any of Your end users’ or downstream customers’ conduct violate such Policies. We respect the intellectual property rights of all parties and have adopted a policy regarding termination of repeat copyright infringers under the DMCA (See INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT AND DMCA NOTIFICATIONS above).
Child Pornography. Adtaq takes the issue of child pornography very seriously, and any potential harm to minors using our Services is strictly prohibited. Content that is or may be perceived to be child pornography will be immediately removed from public access upon notification or detection by Us. Additionally, Adtaq reserves the right to terminate any Account whose website(s) hosts or links to child pornography immediately and without notice to You. If the account is an Adtaq reseller account, the account will be suspended, and the reseller will be directed to terminate the responsible account. You agree to cooperate in any such efforts. Content or communications seeking to solicit, lure or entice minors into sexual activity or lewd behavior is also strictly prohibited, and will be treated the same as, or similar to, child pornography, consistent with applicable law. You agree to cooperate with Adtaq in any effort to investigate, disable or remove such Content originating with Your end users. Consistent with federal law, Adtaq will cooperate with law enforcement authorities and will notify such authorities if it suspects that You or any of Your downstream customers or end users are engaged in any such illegal activities.
In accordance with the reporting requirements of 18 U.S.C. § 2258A, We will report to the CyberTipline (www.cybertipline.com) any actual knowledge of apparent violations of 18 U.S.C §§ 2251, 2251A, 2252, 2252A, 2252B, 2260, or 1466A. If You suspect any instances of child pornography appearing on sites hosted by Adtaq, We encourage You to send such reports to Our abuse address at [email protected], and include the file name and/or URL (or other location on the Customer’s site), victim (if known), date of birth, date of production, and any other information about the suspect image(s). Do not send the image(s) in question. Alternatively, You may use the CyberTipline to report suspected child pornography. Reports involving sites not hosted by Adtaq should be directed to law enforcement or to a cooperating child pornography organization such as: https://www.asacp.org/index.php?content=report.
Content appropriate for Minors and Section 230 Notice: You acknowledge Your responsibility to prevent minors under Your care from accessing harmful or inappropriate material on Your site and services. You agree not to allow minors to view any such materials and agree to take responsible measures to prevent them from doing so. Numerous commercial online safety filters are available which may help users limit minors’ access to harmful or inappropriate material. Pursuant to 47 U.S.C. §230(d), you are hereby informed that you can research such services at websites such as www.asacp.org. Please note that the Service makes no representation or warranty regarding any of the products or services referenced on such sites and recommends that the user conduct appropriate due diligence before purchasing or installing any online filter. You agree to take particular steps to prevent minors from viewing these kind of materials if Your computer can be accessed by a minor. Finally, You agree that if You are a parent or guardian of a minor child, it is Your responsibility, not Ours, to keep any age-restricted content on Our Site from being displayed or accessed by Your children or wards.
Pursuant to the Communications Decency Act (“CDA”), 47 U.S.C. § 230(c)(1), and court decisions interpreting the scope of the CDA, You acknowledge and understand that Adtaq operates as the provider of an interactive computer service. Thus, We are immune from, and cannot be held responsible for, claims arising from the publication of Your Content (including third-party content published on Your web site(s)). We do not create such content, and We are not responsible for the publication of remarks or communications of You or third-parties that may arguably rise to the level of being actionable under federal or state laws including, but not limited to, the publication of material that might be considered defamatory, or violative of privacy or publicity rights. Note, that federal law allows Adtaq to remove any content found to be offensive, defamatory, obscene or otherwise violative of Our policies, without impacting Our immunity status as an interactive computer service. Nothing contained in this Section is intended to limit or alter the immunity from claims provided by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. In the event that any court finds that any third-party communication or third-party content hosted by us falls outside of the realm of the immunity provided by the CDA, this shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any legal protections provided by Section 230 for any and all other content posted on our Site or hosted via our Services.
If You use Our Services for any site, sub-domain, page or business model that allows Your end users or customers to control or upload material to Internet space assigned to You by Us, You shall be deemed to be acting as a “Service Provider” with respect to such services and/or customers. Service Providers include but are not limited to customers which; (i) resell bandwidth as hosts to third parties; (ii) operate user-generated content sites such as forums, “tube” sites, review sites, and online classified advertising sites; (iii) operate search engines; or (iv) operate peer-to-peer file sharing networks. Customers acting as a Service Provider for third-party users shall comply with the following provisions:
You shall notify Us of all domains, web pages or IP addresses for which You are acting as a Service Provider.
You shall comply with 17 U.S.C. §512 of the DMCA by properly designating an agent for receipt of copyright infringement notices, and You shall publish a link on the home page of any website for which You are a Service Provider to a DMCA Notice and Takedown Policy, identifying the website’s designated agent and associated contact information. “Service Providers” within the meaning of 17 U.S.C. § 512(k)(1) require that any DMCA Notices relating to alleged infringement of a Adtaq Service Provider Customer be submitted directly to the DMCA Agent designated by such Customer.
You shall provide Us with a current link to Your DMCA Notice and Takedown Policy and further advise Us of any changes to Your Designated Agent contact information. This shall be a continuing obligation for as long as You use Our Services.
It is the policy of Adtaq to provide any infringement notices it receives relating to Service Provider subscribers directly to the subscriber’s Designated DMCA Agent, and to further notify any copyright claimants of the identity and contact information for such Agent. Failure to maintain compliance with this section shall constitute a material breach of these Terms.
In keeping with Our DMCA policies and obligations set forth above, You understand, agree, and expressly allow Us to access and subsequently disable public access to any files or data residing on the server, disk, partition, or other data space under Your control when such files or data, in Our discretion: (i) have been identified in a substantially-compliant DMCA notice under 17 U.S.C. § 512; or (ii) when We become aware of facts or circumstances indicating that such files or data are infringing on the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of third parties. Given that Our customers may employ various methods of securing files in conjunction with Our Services, and in an attempt to avoid material disruption of Our customers’ Services, You agree that You will provide Us with Your preferred procedure for disabling access to material identified under this provision. If We forward You a substantially-compliant DMCA Notice and which concerns content under Your control, You are obligated under these Terms to immediately disable or remove access to such content. Irrespective of the above, We reserve the right to disable or remove access to such content, in Our discretion, and without claim of damage or injury by You. While We will attempt to simply disable access to such Content without fully deleting it, or suspending all services to your Account, We make no warranties concerning harm or injury to the Content, and reserve the right to take any necessary actions to disable access to the identified material, including suspension or termination of Services. It is therefore in Your best interest to promptly respond to any DMCA Notices You may receive. Should You or Your web site’s users feel that such DMCA Notice was erroneously or improperly sent, You must follow the Counter-Notification procedure set forth in our Copyright Policy, and wait the required period of time, before We allow public access to the content to resume.
Nothing contained in this Section, or any part of these Terms, shall constitute legal or professional advice regarding any matter referenced therein. You are responsible for obtaining your own legal advice regarding compliance with any and all applicable laws or regulations.
In addition to the license granted in Section 12.1(a), You also authorize others to use the User Content that you publicly share or Make Available through the Services.
You may delete, or request deletion of your User Content at any time, unless you have shared such User Content with others and they have not deleted it, or it was copied or stored by other Users. Any User Content you submit is at your own risk of loss, and if shared publicly, non-confidential.
We may modify or adapt your User Content in order to transmit, display or distribute them over computer networks and in various media and/or make changes to the User Content as necessary to conform and adapt them to any requirements or limitations of any networks, devices, services or media.
If you use any “rating” feature of the Services, as applicable, and/or if you send or transmit any communications, comments, questions, suggestions, or related materials to Adtaq, whether by letter, email, telephone, or otherwise (collectively, “Feedback”), suggesting or recommending changes to the Services, including, without limitation, new features or functionality relating thereto, all such Feedback is, and will be treated as, non-confidential and non-proprietary. You hereby assign all right, title, and interest in, and Adtaq is free to use, without any attribution or compensation to you, any ratings submitted within the Services, and any ideas, know-how, concepts, techniques, or other intellectual property and proprietary rights contained in the Feedback, whether or not patentable, for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to, developing, manufacturing, having manufactured, licensing, marketing, and selling, directly or indirectly, products and services using such Feedback. You understand and agree that Adtaq may use any of this Feedback in aggregated or non-aggregated from, however Adtaq is not obligated to use, display, reproduce, or distribute any such ratings, ideas, know-how, concepts, or techniques contained in the Feedback, and you have no right to compel such use, display, reproduction, or distribution.
Forums and messaging. Adtaq may offer various forums where you can post your observations and comments on designated topics. By offering this feature, Adtaq is merely acting as an intermediary and is not responsible and shall not be liable for such communications. Please note that ideas you post and information you share may be seen and used by other Users, and Adtaq cannot guarantee that other Users will not use the ideas and information that you share on the Services. Therefore, if you have an idea or information that you would like to keep confidential and/or don’t want others to use, or that is subject to third-party rights that may be infringed by your sharing it, do not post it on the public forums of the Services. Please refer to Section 11 and our Copyright Policy for more information regarding how we treat infringing content. ADTAQ IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR A USER’S MISUSE OR MISAPPROPRIATION OF ANY CONTENT OR INFORMATION POSTED IN ANY Adtaq COMMUNITY FORUMS.
The Services and all proprietary and intellectual property rights embodied and practiced therein, including the look-and-feel of the Site, are and shall remain Adtaq’s property (or the property of Adtaq’s licensors). Neither these Terms nor your use of the Services convey or grant to you any rights: (i) in or related to the Services except for the limited license granted above; or (ii) to use or reference in any manner Adtaq’s company names, logos, product and service names, trademarks or services marks or those of Adtaq’s licensors. There are no licenses by implication. If you breach any of these Terms, the above license will terminate automatically and you must stop using the Services and immediately destroy any Materials downloaded or printed from the Service.
