Tapiture offers various services to you, the “User”, through our web site (www.tapiture.com), our application on mobile devices and through various third party applications (collectively the “Service”), all of which are conditioned on your agreement to adhere to the following Terms of Service without modification of any kind. Your use of the Tapiture Service and/or your registration with Tapiture constitutes your agreement to these Terms of Service. These Terms of Service are subject to change at any time, without prior notice. You are responsible for reviewing these Terms of Service on a regular basis. Your use of this Service following any amendment of these Terms of Service will signify your assent to and acceptance of its revised terms. These Terms of Service apply to all visitors and all who access our web site or Services.
By using Tapiture you agree to all the terms below.
We need your info to create an account and personalize your service, but we won’t abuse it.
You affirm that you are either more than 18 years of age, or an emancipated minor, or possess legal parental or guardian consent, and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set forth in these Terms of Service, and to abide by and comply with these Terms of Service. In any case, you represent that you are over the age of 13, as this Service is not intended for children under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use Tapiture or our Service—there are lots of other great websites for you. Talk to your parents about what sites are appropriate for you.
In our discretion, we may maintain different accounts for different types of Users. 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 an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to these Terms of Service, and that you agree to these Terms on the entity’s behalf. By connecting to Tapiture with a third-party service (e.g., Facebook or Twitter), you give us permission to access and use your information from that service as permitted by that third-party service, and to store your log-in credentials for that third-party service. The Service is not available to any User who has been removed from the Service by Tapiture.
To fully use our services, you need to be of legal age (no fake IDs accepted) and be honest about your identity.
Tapiture allows Users to post, share, tap and buy various content on the Service. Unless otherwise agreed in writing signed by Tapiture, by submitting content, adding photos, video, data or other materials directly through the Service or suggesting any ideas or feedback (collectively, "Materials"), you hereby grant to Tapiture a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, fully transferable, sublicenseable, nonexclusive right and license to use, access, store, copy, modify, re-tap, re-post, rearrange, display, distribute, reproduce, perform, create derivative works from, and otherwise use and exploit all such Materials in any form, media, software or technology of any kind now existing or developed in the future and the right to sublicense the foregoing rights through multiple tiers without compensation to you. You further grant to Tapiture a royalty-free right and license to use your name, image and/or likeness in advertising and in connection with the licensed rights for the Materials. You also agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Tapiture from and against any claims or costs, including attorneys' fees, arising from the use or distribution of those Materials. You further grant Tapiture the right to use your name in connection with the reproduction or distribution of any such Material. While Tapiture is not under any obligation to monitor content provided by Users, Tapiture may, in its sole determination, remove any content that it deems objectionable, offensive, unlawful or in violation of these Terms of Service.
Subject to the license above, you retain all of your rights in all of the Materials you post to our Service, including all copyright rights; moral rights; rights of publicity; trademark, trade dress and service mark rights (and associated goodwill); trade secret rights; patent rights and all other intellectual property and proprietary rights as they may now exist or hereafter come into existence, and all applications for any of these rights and registrations, renewals and extensions of any of these rights, in each case under the laws of any state, country, territory or other jurisdiction. The Tapiture Service, all content and other subject matter included on or within the Service (“Tapiture Content”) is the property of Tapiture or its licensors. Tapiture reserves all of its rights with respect the Tapiture Content.
We need legal rights to use your content while you use our service, but it’s ultimately your stuff. However if you’re doing something that violates our policies, we may remove it.
The Service site may offer forums, blogs, comments areas, bulletin boards and chat rooms (collectively, "Forums") that are intended to provide users 18 years of age and older an interesting and stimulating forum in which they can express their opinions and share their ideas. Tapiture does not endorse the accuracy or reliability of any advice, opinion, statement or information posted on these Forums. Please use your best judgment, and be respectful of other individuals using these Forums. Do not use vulgar, abusive or hateful language. Uploading copyrighted or other proprietary material of any kind on the Service without the express permission of the owner of that material is prohibited and may result in civil and/or criminal liability. Any information you disclose when posting a message in these Forums may become public. You should not include any information in your posting that you do not want other parties to see or use and you hereby agree that you will not hold Tapiture responsible for any third party's use of information contained in such posting. To maintain a positive, creative environment in which Users may tap, share and display Materials, we ask that you only use the Service in a manner that is consistent with our Acceptable Use Policy below.
You agree not to use user names or Forum titles that are offensive, obscene, or harassing to others. We reserve the right to require you to change your user name or the title of your Forum at any time and for any reason in our sole discretion.
Play nice with others.
Remember: this is a public forum. People may leave comments on our site that you (and we) may not like. Tapiture can’t be held responsible for someone being mean or idiotic, but we’ll do our best make sure everybody is playing nicely together.
Tapiture respects the rights of third party creators and content owners and expects that you will do the same. Given the nature of the Service and the volume of Materials submitted, Tapiture cannot and does not monitor all of the Materials posted or transmitted by you and other third-party information providers via the Service, including, without limitation, any Materials posted via the Forums. You expressly agree that Tapiture: (a) will not be liable for Materials and (b) reserve the right to review, reject, delete, remove, modify, or edit any Materials at any time for any reason, without liability and without notice to you. We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to remove User Content from the Service for any reason, including User Content that we believe violates these Terms or our Acceptable Use Policy below.
