You will not state or imply (i) that you have any partnership or affiliation with TigerLogic or (ii) that TigerLogic supports or endorses you, Your Postanos, or Your Sites.
6. Special Provisions Regarding Your Postanos
6.1 Postano Account. To use the Services you must first establish a Postano account (“Your Account“) with a username and password. TigerLogic may allow you to establish Your Account directly with us, or we may allow you to establish Your Account through a Third Party Service (such as by using your Facebook or Twitter account username and password in accordance with authentication programs made available by those Third Party Services). To allow the Sites and Services to obtain content from Your Sources you must either provide to us directly or allow us to access (such as through authorization programs made available by Your Sources) certain information to be associated with Your Account, such as contact information, company information, data feed access information with respect Your Sources, and account information with respect to your accounts held with Third Party Services (collectively, “Your Account Information“). By providing to us or giving us access to Your Account Information, you authorize us to use Your Account Information to access and use content and information related to such Third Party Service accounts (including without limitation your profile information, information regarding your friends and followers, privacy settings, posts, photographs, images, and videos, and metadata regarding any of the above) for use by the Services in connection with Your Postanos and in accordance with any applicable policies of the relevant Third Party Services. By establishing Your Account, you represent and warrant that (a) the information you provide is accurate and complete in all respects, (b) you are the owner and operator of, or are otherwise authorized to access and use for the purposes of these TOS, the websites you have included in Your Account Information as RSS or MRSS (or similar technology) feed sources for Your Postanos, (c) you are the account holder of each account with Third Party Services included in Your Account Information, (d) you have the authority to allow us to access and use Your Sources and all Third Party Content contained in Your Sources for use on and in connection with Your Postanos as contemplated by these TOS, and (e) each URL that you use or select for your Public Postano does not infringe, violate, or misappropriate any intellectual property, publicity, or other legal or moral rights of any person or entity. You will promptly notify TigerLogic of any change in Your Account Information and will ensure that Your Account Information is at all times complete, accurate, and up-to-date. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password, and you are solely responsible for all activities that occur under Your Account. You agree not to sell, transfer, or assign Your Account or any associated rights. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of Your Account or any other breach of security related to any of the Sites and Services. We reserve the right to require you to alter your password if we believe that Your Account is no longer secure. YOU AGREE THAT THE TIGERLOGIC PARTIES WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE ARISING FROM YOUR FAILURE TO ADEQUATELY SAFEGUARD YOUR PASSWORD.
6.2 Public Postano URLs. TigerLogic may allow you to select a URL for a Public Postano at the domain “postano.com”, for example “yourtopic.postano.com”. We reserve the right to accept or reject your selected URL in our sole and absolute discretion for any reason whatsoever. Without limitation, we may reject a URL that is already being used by another Postano user, that contains offensive language, that you do not have the legitimate right to use, or that is associated with illegal activity. Even after we have assigned a URL to a Public Postano, we reserve the right to do any or all of the following at any time in our sole and absolute discretion for any reason whatsoever: reclaim that URL, reassign that URL to another user, or change the URL assigned to any of your Public Postanos. For example, we may reclaim and reassign a URL of a Public Postano if the URL you select contains the name of, or otherwise refers to, an individual, company, or product, and that individual or company, or the producer or distributor of that product, requests that we reclaim that URL.
6.3 Price and Payment Terms
(a) From time to time we may offer use of the Services free of charge for a certain period of time (each a “Trial Period“), and we may impose additional terms, restrictions, or limitations on the use of the Services during such Trial Period. To take advantage of any Trial Period pricing, you must comply with all of the terms, restrictions, and limitations applicable to the Trial Period. We may request payment information from you so that we can charge you appropriate Fees (as defined below) once the Trial Period has ended. You may only have the benefit of one Trial Period. You may not sign-up for multiple accounts in order to obtain the benefit of more than one Trial Period, nor may you establish or use any account to avoid the terms, restrictions, or limitations applicable to any Trial Period.
(b) In consideration for access to the Sites and Services, after the Trial Period (if any), you will pay to TigerLogic all applicable fees for the use of the Services as set forth in the Postano Pricing Plan http://www.postano.com/pricing/ (the “Fees”). The Postano Pricing Plan may state that certain types or levels of usage may not require any Fees. Nevertheless, we may request payment information from you so that we can charge you appropriate Fees in the event your usage exceeds the free level or becomes a type requiring payment of a fee. Fees are subject to change in accordance with Section 13 below. Fees are quoted and payable in United States dollars. Payment obligations are non-cancelable and any fees paid are non-refundable. For purposes of determining Fees payable under these TOS, you authorize TigerLogic to access information about you, Your Postanos, Your Sites, and your Third Party Services accounts through the means described in Section 2.4(i) above, from Third Party Service providers, and through other legal means. You represent and warrant that any information provided by you for purposes determining Fees payable under these TOS is complete, accurate, and up-to-date. If we have reason to suspect that such information is not complete, accurate, and up-to-date, then we will have the right to (a) charge Fees for your use of the Services based on what we reasonably believe to be the complete, accurate, and up-to-date information about you, Your Postanos, Your Sites, and your Third Party Services accounts (which may differ from the information provided by you) and (b) terminate your access to the Sites and Services in accordance with Section 12 below and take any of the other actions described in that section. Changes in the information on which the Fees are based shall be reflected in Fees for the pay period immediately following such change.
(c) TigerLogic may accept payment through one or more payment service providers (such as PayPal or Chargify) or by credit or debit card, depending on our payment policies in place from time to time. If you pay through a payment service provider, the user agreement for such payment service governs your use of such payment service. If you pay by credit card or debit card, your card issuer agreement governs your use of your card. If we do not receive payment through the payment service provider or card provider, as applicable, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by us or our agents. You will provide us with your valid and updated payment service account or credit or debit card information, as applicable, and you authorize us to charge such payment service account or credit or debit card account for all Fees. You are responsible for maintaining complete and accurate billing and contact information.
(d) If any amount owing by you is thirty (30) or more days overdue (or ten (10) or more days overdue in the case of amounts you have authorized us to charge to your credit or debit card), we may, without limiting our other rights and remedies, accelerate your unpaid fee obligations, so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend our services to you until such amounts are paid in full.
(e) Unless otherwise stated, our fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties, or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including but not limited to value-added, sales, use, or withholding taxes assessable by any local, state, provincial, federal or foreign jurisdiction (collectively, “Taxes“). You are responsible for paying all Taxes associated with your purchases in connection with the Sites and Services. If we have the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which you are responsible under this paragraph, the appropriate amount shall be charged to and paid by you, unless you provide us with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
(f) Under the Postano Pricing Plan, you may have the option to choose from among one or more subscription pricing arrangements (a “Subscription”). If you choose a Subscription, the Subscription may renew automatically at the then-current price for the Subscription at the end of each Subscription period unless you cancel your Subscription prior to the next renewal date. By choosing one of these arrangements, you consent to this automatic renewal feature. You may cancel your Subscription at any time. If you wish to cancel your Subscription, follow the instructions for cancelling Subscriptions found on http://www.postano.com/cancel.php. If you signed up for your Subscription during a Trial Period and do not wish to be charged for your Subscription, you should cancel your Subscription prior to the end of the Trial Period.
6.4 Publicity. During the term of this Agreement, TigerLogic may, unless you notify us otherwise (which may be by deselecting or “opting out” of such permission when you establish Your Account): (a) use your name and logo in identifying you as a client of TigerLogic’s in connection with Postano and (b) on the Postano home page and other TigerLogic web pages refer to and link to each of Your Sites.
