Terms of Service
1. Acceptance of Terms
2. Your Registration Obligations
In consideration of your use of the Site and the Services, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract or have parental consent and are not a person barred from receiving the Services under the laws of the United States or any other applicable jurisdiction. You also agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by Social Exchange's registration form (the “Registration Data”) and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of Social Exchange or the Services (or any portion thereof).
By registering for Social Exchange, you represent that you at least thirteen (13) years old. Social Exchange is not intended for use by children younger than thirteen (13) years old and does not intentionally collect information from such children, and any discovered accounts held by such children or information unintentionally collected from such children shall be deleted immediately.
On Social Exchange, you will be belong to an organization and to groups within an organization. Your Social Exchange organization account will be registered and managed by the organizational administrator (the “Administrator”). The Administrator can create Organizational Managers who have the ability to a) set up groups within the organization and b) appoint Group Managers. The Group Managers are responsible for administering the groups, including by overseeing communications among the group members. All users who do not have administrative or managerial privileges are simply “Users,” and these Users may be asked to join or be excluded from membership in a Social Exchange organization or group by the Organizational Managers and Group Managers in their sole discretion. Social Exchange does not arbitrate disputes among Managers and Users when there is a disagreement about whether a User should belong to an organization or group.
In these Terms of Service and other incorporated policies, “you,” “your,” and “Customer” refers to the organization, Administrator, Manager, or other User registering for the Services. Throughout these Terms of Service, your responsibility is stated for various items. You should understand by these references that you are responsible for the account you create. If you are an Administrator, you are financially and otherwise responsible for all activity on the Social Exchange organization account you create, whether such activity is by Managers, Users, or unauthorized third persons. The Administrator is therefore encouraged to monitor all public activity by its organization’s Managers and Users. If you are a Manager or User, you are simply responsible for activity occurring on your Manager or User account, including any financial activity or content and communications posted under that account; you are not responsible for the organizational account, for which the organization’s Administrator is solely responsible.
Additionally, by signing up for an organization account, the Administrator registering for the Services is deemed to have consented to these Terms of Service on behalf of all Managers and Users who are members of that Social Exchange organization. If you are creating an account on behalf of a legal entity or other group of persons, you represent and warrant that you have the legal authority to bind such entity or group to these Terms of Service.
4. Social Networking Services
As part of our Services, you and your Managers and Users have access to a platform for social networking. The purpose of this platform is for Organization and Group Managers to invite Users to participate in an online forum for facilitating interactions among the organization’s members. You agree to use the Site and Services in a responsible manner, including as set out in these Terms of Service. You therefore agree to a) only invite persons who are actually part of your organization to join Social Exchange, b) not send unsolicited messages or spam to persons outside of your Social Exchange organization, and c) respect all other persons you interact with on Social Exchange and generally treat others the way you would want to be treated. Social Exchange reserves the right to terminate your use of the Site and Services without warning if it finds that you are in violation of these Terms of Service.
You acknowledge that the Services cannot be guaranteed to be accessible from all locations and devices due to various technological, regulatory, or other restrictions.
You are responsible for obtaining access to Social Exchange, and that access may involve third-party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). You are responsible for those fees. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access Social Exchange.
You are responsible: (i) for any and all activities that may occur under your account and (ii) to maintain the confidentiality and security of your data and account password. You agree to notify us immediately if there has been an unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security.
Notice of any security breaches may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. Forbidden Activity
You agree not to use the Services in any illegal or abusive manner. You may not (and are not authorized to allow any third party to) copy, modify, create a derivative work from, reverse engineer, reverse assemble or otherwise attempt to discover any source code, sell, assign, sublicense, grant a security interest in or otherwise transfer any right in Social Exchange, the Services, or any necessary software used in connection with Social Exchange (the “Software”).
You further agree:
You shall not make the following types of information, materials, or content (collectively, “Content”) available. You agree not to upload, download, display, perform, transmit, or otherwise distribute any Content that (a) is libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, abusive, or threatening; (b) advocates or encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national, or foreign law or regulation; or (c) advertises or otherwise solicits funds or is a solicitation for goods or services. Social Exchange reserves the right to terminate your receipt, transmission, or other distribution of any such material using the Services, and, if applicable, to delete any such material from its servers. Social Exchange intends to cooperate fully with any law enforcement officials or agencies in the investigation of any violation of these Terms of Service or of any applicable laws.
To ensure that Social Exchange provides a high quality experience for you and for other users of the Site and the Service, you agree that Social Exchange or its representatives may access your account and records on a case-by-case basis to investigate complaints or allegations of abuse, infringement of third party rights, or other unauthorized uses of the Site or the Services. Social Exchange does not intend to disclose the existence or occurrence of such an investigation unless required by law.
It is acceptable for an organization to offer services or promotions on its Social Exchange newsfeed. However, Social Exchange works hard to avoid the Services from becoming a venue for spam, and therefore Social Exchange reserves the right to impose limitations on an organization’s newsfeed or to terminate the organization’s account in cases of abuse.
7. Pricing and Billing
Social Exchange may charge for its Services either at the time you register or at any point thereafter. If you are the creator of an organization account, you agree to abide by the pricing and payment terms established when you agreed to sign up for Social Exchange. Any termination of your account or access to the Services due a breach of these Terms of Service will not relieve you of any obligation to pay any fees or other amounts owed to Social Exchange, except to the extent otherwise specified by a written agreement with Social Exchange.
8. Modifications to Social Exchange
Social Exchange reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, Social Exchange or the Services (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that Social Exchange shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of Social Exchange or the Services (or any part thereof).
