1) Use of Services
You may use our Services only if you are able to form a binding contract with InCollect, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable federal and state laws. When you create your InCollect account, you must provide us with accurate and complete information. Any use or access by anyone under the age of 13 is prohibited. If you open an account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) "you" includes you and that entity, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are authorized to grant all permissions and licenses provided in these Terms and bind the entity to these Terms, and that you agree to these Terms on the entity's behalf.
Subject to these Terms and our policies, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to use our Services. Your use of our Services does not grant you any ownership over any Content, and except for the limited license and permission to access and use the Services that we grant you under these Terms, your use of the Services does not grant you any license or permission under any copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights of InCollect or any third party, whether by implication, estoppel or otherwise. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you in these Terms.
InCollect allows you to submit content including images, text, audio, video, links, and other materials. Anything that you post or otherwise make available on InCollect is referred to as “Content." You can choose to make parts of your Content either “Pubic” or “Private.” You retain all rights in, and are solely responsible for ensuring that the Content you post to InCollect complies with any applicable laws and third party rights, including but not limited to any intellectual property rights, privacy rights and publicity rights. You grant InCollect a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide license to use, reproduce, distribute, publish, adapt, modify, translate, create derivative works from, publicly perform and publicly display your Public Content, in any media known now or later developed, solely or for the purposes of operating, developing, promoting, providing, distributing and using InCollect Services. You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to your Content, and that the use of your Content does not violate these Terms and will not violate any rights of or cause injury to any person or entity.
We reserve the right to remove or modify Content for any reason, including Content that we believe violates these Terms or our policies.
Following termination or deactivation of your account, or if you remove any Content from InCollect, we may retain your Content for a commercially reasonable period of time for backup, archival, or audit purposes. Furthermore, InCollect may retain and continue to use, store, display, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute any of your Content that other users have stored or shared through InCollect.
We also reserve the right, but do not have an obligation, to monitor or review any Content or activity on our Services, to investigate alleged or suspected violations of these Terms or to otherwise administer and operate the Services, at any time and in our sole discretion, and we may disclose any Content or activity if we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with any law, regulation, legal process or government request.
We value hearing from our users. If you choose to submit comments, ideas or feedback, you agree that we are free to use them without any restriction or compensation to you. By accepting your submission, InCollect does not waive any rights to use similar or related Feedback previously known to InCollect, or developed by its employees, or obtained suggestions to make InCollect better.
InCollect has adopted and implemented copyright Policy in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. We respect the intellectual property rights of others and expect our users to do the same.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. InCollect also reviews claims of trademark infringement. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by InCollect infringe your copyright or trademark rights, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work or trademark claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works or trademarks located on the Website are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow InCollect to locate the material on the Website; (d) the name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright or trademark owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. Please be advised that InCollect will not respond to complaints that do not meet these requirements. If InCollect determines that the materials alleged to infringe your copyright or trademark rights do not require removal, InCollect will remove those materials only pursuant to a court order declaring the content or use of the materials unlawful.
If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Counter-notices must include the following information: (a) your name, address, and telephone number; (b) the source of the content that was removed; (c) a statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed in error; (d) a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which InCollect may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the original complaint; and (e) a physical or electronic signature (for example, typing your full name).
While we work to protect the security of your Content and account, InCollect cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not be able to compromise our security efforts. Please notify us immediately of any compromise or unauthorized use of your account.
