You agree that any User Content your provide does not and will not violate third-party rights of any kind, including without limitation any Intellectual Property Rights (as defined below) or rights of privacy or publicity. ACS reserves the right, but is not obligated, to reject and/or remove any User Content that ACS believes, in its sole discretion, violates these provisions. You understand that publishing your User Content on or via the Service is not a substitute for registering it with the U.S. Copyright Office or any other rights organization.

In connection with your User Content, you affirm, represent and warrant the following:

1. Your User Content and ACS’s use thereof as contemplated by this Agreement and the Service will not violate any law or infringe any rights of any third party, including but not limited to any Intellectual Property Rights and privacy and publicity rights.

4. If your User Content contains or incorporates in any manner any components including but not limited to design elements, fonts, clipart, sprites, vectors or brush tools and the like that are included in design programs, by uploading any such User Content to ACS, you represent and warrant that the end user license agreement, terms of service or the equivalent license agreed to by you allows you to incorporate such elements in the User Content created by you, and to license such User Content to ACS for the purposes set forth herein.

a. Your User Content is neither obscene, defamatory, or otherwise objectionable.

b. To the best of your knowledge, all your User Content and other information that you provide to us is truthful and accurate.

c. You will not transmit unsolicited emails or engage in spamming to publicize or promote your relationship with ACS.

d. If you use the Service to post, publish, or print User Content, you agree that you have verified that the User Content does not contain anything that is illegal, infringes (or is otherwise deceptively similar to) any third-party’s Intellectual Property Rights, or otherwise breaches these terms.

e. You will not engage in pay per click advertising using keywords which compete with ACS’s own campaigns in order to promote your relationship with ACS nor will you use or engage a third party on your behalf to use ACS in any domain name.

Upon making or learning of any claim that is inconsistent with any of the representations or warranties made by you, ACS shall send you written notice of such claim, using the email address provided by you to ACS, specifying the details of the claim as then known to ACS. Pending the determination of such claim, ACS may withhold from royalties and/or other compensation due to you hereunder, such sums as are reasonably related to the probable value of the claim as determined by ACS.

ACS takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any User Content that you or any other User or third party posts, publishes, or prints using the Service. You shall be solely responsible for your User Content and the consequences of posting, publishing, and printing it, and you agree that we are only acting as a passive conduit for your online distribution and publication of your User Content.

User Content License Grant

You retain ownership of your User Content. However, ACS requires a license to use your User Content for purposes such as, but not limited to, providing the Service to you and allowing you to interface with any third-party app which you connect through the Service, and ensuring the Service is operational and secure.

By uploading User Content to the Service, you expressly grant, and you represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to grant to ACS a limited, non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, and distribute, all such User Content and your name, and/or likeness as contained in your User Content, in whole or in part, for use in connection with operating the Service, including without limitation, for allowing you to access, edit, and share your User Content to linked third-party applications and saving your User Content to your device, as well as to allow ACS (and its successors’ and affiliates’) to conduct its business operations, including without limitation, for providing technical and security measures, to ensure the Service is operational, and to update and modify the Service, while your account is active and for a reasonable time thereafter should you wish to reactivate your account. For the avoidance of doubt, User Content does not include ACS Media.

Our Proprietary Rights

Except for your User Content, the Service and all materials therein or transferred thereby, including, without limitation, software, images, text, graphics, illustrations, logos, patents, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, photographs, audio, videos, music, User Content belonging to other Users, and ACS Media (“ACS Content”), and all Intellectual Property Rights related thereto, are the exclusive property of ACS and its licensors (including other Users who post User Content to the Service). Except as explicitly provided herein, nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to create a license in or under any such Intellectual Property Rights, and you agree not to sell, license, rent, modify, distribute, copy, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, publish, adapt, edit or create derivative works from any ACS Content for any purpose not expressly permitted by this Agreement.

ACS is not a file storage service and does not provide you with the ability to store your User Content on the ACS servers beyond that which is required for operating the Service.

Notwithstanding any value attributed to such data by you or any third party, you understand and agree that any data, account history, and account content residing on ACS’s servers, may be deleted, altered, moved, or transferred at any time for any reason in ACS’s sole discretion, with or without notice and with no liability of any kind.

ACS cares about the integrity and security of your personal information. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. You acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk.

DMCA Notice

UNDER FEDERAL LAW, IF YOU KNOWINGLY MISREPRESENT THAT ONLINE MATERIAL IS INFRINGING, YOU MAY BE SUBJECT TO CRIMINAL PROSECUTION FOR PERJURY AND CIVIL PENALTIES, INCLUDING MONETARY DAMAGES, COURT COSTS, AND ATTORNEYS’ FEES.

Please note that this procedure is exclusively for notifying ACS and its affiliates that your copyrighted material has been infringed.

It may be advisable to contact an attorney regarding your rights and obligations under the DMCA and other applicable laws.

In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, ACS has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances, Users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. ACS may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Service and/or terminate the accounts of any Users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.

Third-Party Links

The Service may contain links to third-party websites, services, special offers, or other events or activities that are not owned or controlled by ACS. ACS does not endorse or assume any responsibility for any such third-party sites, information, materials, products, or services. If you access a third party website from the Service, you do so at your own risk, and you understand that this Agreement and ACS’s Privacy Policy do not apply to your use of such sites. You expressly relieve ACS from any and all liability arising from your use of any third-party website, service, or content. Additionally, your dealings with or participation in promotions of advertisers found on the Service, including payment and delivery of goods, and any other terms (such as warranties) are solely between you and such advertisers.

The Service is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. Use of the Service is at your own risk. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the Service is provided without warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. Without limiting the foregoing, ACS, its subsidiaries, and its licensors do not warrant that the content, including without limitation User Content and ACS Media, is accurate, reliable or correct; that the Service will meet your requirements; that the Service will be available at any particular time or location, uninterrupted or secure; that any defects or errors will be corrected; or that the Service is free of viruses or other harmful components. Any content downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of the Service is used at your own risk and you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or mobile device or loss of data that results from such download or your use of the Service.

ACS does not warrant, endorse, guarantee, or assume responsibility for any product or service advertised or offered by a third party through the ACS service or any hyperlinked website or service, and ACS will not be a party to or in any way monitor any transaction between you and third-party providers of products or services.

Limitation of Liability

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall ACS, its affiliates, agents, directors, employees, suppliers, or licensors be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including without limitation damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses, that result from the use of, or inability to use, this service, including without limitation, your submission of User Content or ACS Media. Under no circumstances will ACS be responsible for any damage, loss or injury resulting from hacking, tampering, or other unauthorized access or use of the service or your account or the information contained therein.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, ACS assumes no liability or responsibility for any (i) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of content; (ii) personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access to or use of our service; (iii) any unauthorized access to or use of our secure servers and/or any and all personal information stored therein; (iv) any interruption or cessation of transmission to or from the service; (v) any bugs, viruses, trojan horses, or the like that may be transmitted to or through our service by any third party; (vi) any errors or omissions in any content or for any loss or damage incurred as a result of the use of any content posted, emailed, transmitted, or otherwise made available through the service; and/or (vii) user content or the defamatory, offensive, or illegal conduct of any third party. In no event shall ACS, its affiliates, agents, directors, employees, suppliers, or licensors be liable to you for any claims, proceedings, liabilities, obligations, damages, losses or costs in an amount exceeding $10.00.

No action, regardless of form or nature, arising out of this agreement may be brought by or on behalf of you more than one (1) year after the cause of action first arose.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, ACS shall not be liable for any damages, costs or losses arising as a result of modifications made to User Content, ACS Media, or other content, any additions or combinations of User Content or ACS Media with other content, or the context in which the User Content, ACS Media, or other content is used by you.

This limitation of liability section applies whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis, even if ACS has been advised of the possibility of such damage. The foregoing limitation of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law in the applicable jurisdiction.

Some states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This agreement gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability under this agreement will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.

The Service is controlled and operated from its facilities in the United States. ACS makes no representations that the Service is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable United States and local laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations. You may not use the Service if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Service are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in the United States.

Governing Law

You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in Missouri; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over ACS, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Missouri. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Missouri, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Greene County, Missouri for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below.

Arbitration.

For any dispute with ACS, you agree to first contact us at [EMAIL] and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that ACS has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any ACS claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein. The arbitration will be conducted in Greene County, Missouri, unless you and ACS agree otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of that party’s data security, Intellectual Property Rights, or other proprietary rights. All claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, and, unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims. You agree that, by entering into this agreement, you and ACS are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.

General

Assignment.

This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by ACS without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
