Typepath Terms of Service

1. Acceptance of Terms
Welcome to Typepath owned and operated by Typepath, Inc. (“Typepath”). These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your access to and use of the services, including our various websites, SMS, APIs, email notifications, applications, buttons, and widgets, (the “Services,” “Site” or “Typepath”), and any information, text, graphics, photos or other materials uploaded, downloaded or appearing on the Services (collectively referred to as “Content”). By clicking “I Agree” on the account registration or payment page or using the Site in any way, you are agreeing to comply with and be bound by this Agreement and the Privacy Policy and all rules, policies and disclaimers posted on the Site or about which you are notified (collectively “Terms”). If you do not agree with all the Terms, or if you are under the age of thirteen (13), do not use the Site. Please review all of the Terms carefully before using the Site.

By using the Site, you (i) agree to be bound by the Terms, (ii) represent that you are over the age of thirteen (13) and able to form legally binding contracts, (iii) agree and acknowledge that by using the Service you are accepting a benefit that cannot be disgorged, (iv) acknowledge that the service is subject to U.S. export controls and agree that you will comply with U.S. export controls, and (v) represent that you are neither located in sanctioned country nor a prohibited person.

Please note that these Terms provide that if you and Typepath are unable to resolve any disputes that arise between you and Typepath, the dispute will be resolved by a specific dispute resolution process that may include arbitration. Arbitration is binding and is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You and Typepath also agree that any claims or disputes cannot be brought as a class action. Please carefully review the Dispute Resolution section below and visit http://www.adr.org for more information about arbitration.

2. Basic Terms
You are responsible for your use of the Services, for any Content you post to the Services, and for any consequences thereof. The Content you submit, post, or display will be able to be viewed by other users of the Services and through third party services and websites. You should only provide Content that you are comfortable sharing with others under these Terms.

You may use the Services only if you yourself can, or you are authorized by another entity to, form a binding contract with Typepath and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction. If you are accepting these Terms and using the Services on behalf of a company, organization, government, or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so. You may use the
    
Services only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations.

The Services that Typepath provides are always evolving and the form and nature of the Services that Typepath provides may change from time to time without prior notice to you. In addition, Typepath, in its sole discretion, may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services (or any features within the Services) to you or to users generally and may not be able to provide you with prior notice. We also retain the right to create limits on use and storage at our sole discretion at any time without prior notice to you.

Typepath may modify any of the Terms at any time by posting them on the Site. Changes shall automatically be effective upon posting provided, however, that material changes to the Terms will be effective as to you upon the earlier of the agreement of the User or thirty (30) days after notice to you, either via email from us to your email address on file with typeapth or via other means including but not limited to an update via Typepath.me, a pop-up or banner, message or other conspicuous notice on the Site. If you affirmatively agree to the new terms, your agreement will be effective immediately. You agree to make any and all necessary arrangements so that you (and not your spam filter) receive all emails Typepath. Your continued use of the Service will signify your acceptance of the changes. If you do not accept the changes, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Site. The latest Terms will be posted on the Site, and you should always review them prior to using the Site.

The Services may include advertisements, which may be targeted to the Content or information on the Services, queries made through the Services, or other information. The types and extent of advertising by Typepath on the Services are subject to change. In consideration for Typepath granting you access to and use of the Services, you agree that Typepath and its third party providers and partners may place such advertising on the Services or in connection with the display of Content or information from the Services whether submitted by you or others.

3. Privacy
Any information that you provide to Typepath is subject to our Privacy Policy, which governs our collection and use of your information. You understand that through your use of the Services you consent to the collection and use (as set forth in the Privacy Policy) of this information, including the transfer of this information to the United States and/or other countries for storage, processing and use by Typepath. As part of providing you the Services, we may need to provide you with certain communications, such as service announcements and administrative messages. These communications are considered part of the Services and your typeapath account, which you may not be able to opt-out from receiving.

4. Passwords
When you register on the Site, you can establish a user name and password for access to your online account. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your user name, password and account data, may not share this information with anyone else, and will be solely responsible for all acts or omissions that occur under your account. You will immediately notify Typepath of any unauthorized use of your password or account. You should only create one account on the Site. If your Typepath account has been suspended or terminated, you may not open another account on the Site. Typepath cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above.

5. Content on the Services
All Content, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, is the sole responsibility of the person who originated such Content. We may not monitor or control the Content posted via the Services and, we cannot take responsibility for such Content. Any use or reliance on any Content or materials posted via the Services or obtained by you through the Services is at your own risk.

We do not endorse, support, represent or guarantee the completeness, truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any Content or communications posted via the Services or endorse any opinions expressed via the Services. You understand that by using the Services, you may be exposed to Content that might be offensive, harmful, inaccurate or otherwise inappropriate, or in some cases, postings that have been mislabeled or are otherwise deceptive. Under no circumstances will Typepath be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any Content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available via the Services or broadcast elsewhere.

6. Your Rights

By submitting, posting or displaying Content on or through the Services, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display and distribute such Content in any and all media or distribution methods (now known or later developed).

You agree that this license includes the right for Typepath to provide, promote, and improve the Services and to make Content submitted to or through the Services available to other companies, organizations or individuals who partner with Typepath for the syndication, broadcast, distribution or publication of such Content on other media and services, subject to our terms and conditions for such Content use.
Such additional uses by Typepath, or other companies, organizations or individuals who partner with Typepath, may be made with no compensation paid to you with respect to the Content that you submit, post, transmit or otherwise make available through the Services.

We may modify or adapt your Content in order to transmit, display or distribute it over computer networks and in various media and/or make changes to your Content as are necessary to conform and adapt that Content to any requirements or limitations of any networks, devices, services or media.

You are responsible for your use of the Services, for any Content you provide, and for any consequences thereof, including the use of your Content by other users and our third party partners. You understand that your Content may be syndicated, broadcast, distributed, or published by our partners and if you do not have the right to submit Content for such use, it may subject you to liability. Typepath will not be responsible or liable for any use of your Content by typeapth in accordance with these Terms. You represent and warrant that you have all the rights, power and authority necessary to grant the rights granted herein to any Content that you submit.

You may not consummate any transaction that was initiated using our Service that could cause us to violate any applicable law, statute, ordinance or regulation. Furthermore, you may not resell or make any commercial use of our system or the Content on the Site without Typepath’s prior written consent. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under thirteen years of age, and if we become aware that a child under the age of thirteen (13) has submitted personal information to us, we will promptly remove it from our systems.

We will respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with applicable law and are properly provided to us.

11. Ending These Terms
The Terms will continue to apply until terminated by either you or Typepath as follows.
You may end your legal agreement with Typepath at any time for any reason by deactivating your accounts and discontinuing your use of the Services. You do not need to specifically inform Typepath when you stop using the Services. If you stop using the Services without deactivating your accounts, your accounts may be deactivated due to prolonged inactivity.

We may suspend or terminate your accounts or cease providing you with all or part of the Services at any time for any reason, including, but not limited to, if we reasonably believe: (i)
you have violated these Terms, (ii) you create risk or possible legal exposure for us; or (iii) our provision of the Services to you is no longer commercially viable. We will make reasonable efforts to notify you by the email address associated with your account or the next time you attempt to access your account.

In all such cases, the Terms shall terminate, including, without limitation, your license to use the Services, except that the following sections shall continue to apply: 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, and 12.
Nothing in this section shall affect Typepath’s rights to change, limit or stop the provision of the Services without prior notice, as provided above in section 1.

12. Disclaimers and Limitations of Liability
Please read this section carefully since it limits the liability of Typepath and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, related companies, officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, partners, and licensors (collectively, the “Typepath Entities”). Each of the subsections below only applies up to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties or the limitation of liability in contracts, and as a result the contents of this section may not apply to you. Nothing in this section is intended to limit any rights you may have which may not be lawfully limited.

A. The Services are Available “AS-IS”
Your access to and use of the Services or any Content are at your own risk. You understand and agree that the Services are provided to you on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis. Without limiting the foregoing, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, THE Typepath ENTITIES DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.

The Typepath Entities make no warranty and disclaim all responsibility and liability for: (i) the completeness, accuracy, availability, timeliness, security or reliability of the Services or any Content; (ii) any harm to your computer system, loss of data, or other harm that results from your access to or use of the Services or any Content; (iii) the deletion of, or the failure to store or to transmit, any Content and other communications maintained by the Services; and (iv) whether the Services will meet your requirements or be available on an uninterrupted, secure, or error-free basis. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained from the Typepath Entities or through the Services, will create any warranty not expressly made herein.

B. Links
The Services may contain links to third-party websites or resources. You acknowledge and agree that the Typepath Entities are not responsible or liable for: (i) the availability or
accuracy of such websites or resources; or (ii) the content, products, or services on or available from such websites or resources. Links to such websites or resources do not imply any endorsement by the Typepath Entities of such websites or resources or the content, products, or services available from such websites or resources. You acknowledge sole responsibility for and assume all risk arising from your use of any such websites or resources.

C. Limitation of Liability
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE Typepath ENTITIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUES, WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, USE, GOOD-WILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM (i) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES; (ii) ANY CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES; (iii) ANY CONTENT OBTAINED FROM THE SERVICES; OR (iv) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR CONTENT.

IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF THE Typepath ENTITIES EXCEED THE GREATER OF ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS (U.S. $100.00) OR THE AMOUNT YOU PAID Typepath, IF ANY, IN THE PAST SIX MONTHS FOR THE SERVICES GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM.

THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS SUBSECTION SHALL APPLY TO ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, STATUTE, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT THE Typepath ENTITIES HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

13. General Terms
A. Waiver and Severability
The failure of Typepath to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision. In the event that any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, then that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.

B. Choice of Law and Dispute Resolution
CHOICE OF LAW. The Terms shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Typepath are each waiving the right to a trial by jury and waiving the right to participate in a class action involving all disputes, claims and controversies, of any sort or nature, between us, arising out of the use of the Site (“Dispute”). You and Typepath agree that any Dispute shall be resolved solely pursuant to the following procedure: (1) notification to the other party of the facts of the Dispute, the legal basis for the Dispute, and all damages claimed, in writing delivered to (a) the user’s email address on file with Typepath, or (b) to Typepath, 18 Bridge Street, Suite 1E, Brooklyn, NY 11201 or info@Typepath.me, whichever is applicable (“Dispute Notification”); (2) allowance of thirty (30) days from receipt of the Dispute Notification to receive a response to and/or offer to remedy the Dispute; (3) if the Dispute remains unresolved within those thirty (30) days, the filing of a Request for Online Mediation for Small Claims with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) (or Request for Mediation for the minimum of four (4) hours only if the Small Claims limit is exceeded), available online at http://www.aaamediation.com/, with good faith efforts being made to resolve the Dispute during mediation, and the cost of the mediation being born equally by the parties, which cost is currently set at US$50 but may be changed by the AAA; (4) if the mediation does not resolve the Dispute, submission of a Demand for Arbitration with the AAA, see www.adr.org/aaa/faces/services/fileacase/casefiling, in which case the Dispute shall be resolved by binding arbitration (by telephone, online and/or solely based on written submissions as chosen by the party initiating the arbitration, as allowed by the AAA Rules and unless otherwise agreed by the parties) or by filing a claim in small claims court. The cost of any arbitration shall be born equally by the parties (except that Typepath may pay the parties’ AAA administrative fees up to US$1000), unless otherwise ordered by the arbitrator(s), and the decision of the arbitrator(s) shall be binding and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.

IMPROPERLY SUBMITTED CLAIM. All Disputes must be resolved as set forth above. Disputes filed in a different manner shall be considered improperly filed, and shall entitle Typepath to attorneys’ fees and costs up to US$1000, provided that Typepath has notified you in writing (at the email address on file with Typepath will suffice) of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to withdraw the claim promptly.
NO CLASS CLAIMS; WAIVER. YOU AND Typepath EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING and that there shall be no class claims, consolidation or joinder allowed in any dispute between the parties, and that no claim may be made through an action purporting to represent a class of Site users or otherwise asserting
  
claims on behalf of a class (“Waiver”). In the event this Waiver is found to be unenforceable, step (4) of the Dispute resolution process, requiring arbitration, shall be voided in its entirety, and the parties may file a complaint in the courts located in New York and agree to waive any and all jurisdictional, venue or inconvenient forum objections.

This Dispute Resolution section shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of your relationship with Typepath.

C. Release
Users are responsible for their acts and omissions and content placed on the Site. Because the Typepath Site is a venue, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users of the Site, you release Typepath (and our parents, subsidiaries, officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents, joint ventures, attorneys, consultants, successors and assigns) from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a New York resident, you waive New York Civil Code §1542, which says: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”

D. Indemnification
You agree to indemnify and hold typeapth, its parents, subsidiaries, officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents, joint venturers, consultants, successors and assigns harmless from and against all losses, costs, liabilities and expenses including reasonable attorneys’ fees, asserted by any third-party that are in any way due to or arising out of your use of or conduct on the Site.

E. Entire Agreement
These Terms and our Privacy Policy are the entire and exclusive agreement between Typepath and you regarding the Services (excluding any services for which you have a separate agreement with typeapth that is explicitly in addition or in place of these Terms), and these Terms supersede and replace any prior agreements between Typepath and you regarding the Services. Other than members of the group of companies of which Typepath, Inc. is the parent, no other person or company will be third party beneficiaries to the Terms.

We may revise these Terms from time to time, the most current version will always be
at Typepath.com. If the revision, in our sole discretion, is material we will notify you via an Typepath.me update or e-mail to the email associated with your account. By continuing to access or use the Services after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
 
These Services are operated and provided by Typepath Inc., 18 Bridge St, Suite 1E, Brooklyn, NY 11201. If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact us.

Effective: May 12, 2014

Typepath Privacy Policy

Typepath is a live internet experience where your interests, groups, friends, pictures, and videos converge in real time. Any registered user can start a Typepath, which turns any post, page or media on the Internet into a live conversation.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when Typepath collects, uses and shares your information when you use our Services. Typepath receives your information through our various websites, SMS, APIs, email notifications, applications, buttons, widgets, and ads (the “Services” or ” Typepath “) and from our partners and other third parties. For example, you send us information when you use Typepath from our website, post or receive Typepath’s via web, or access Typepath from an application such as Typepath for Mac, or Typepath for Android. When using any of our Services you consent to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage, disclosure and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. Irrespective of which country you reside in or supply information from, you authorize Typepath to use your information in the United States and any other country where Typepath operates. If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy, please contact us at Typepath.com

Information Collection and Use
We collect and use your information below to provide our Services and to measure and improve them over time.

Information Collected Upon Registration: When you create or reconfigure a Typepath account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and email address. Some of this information, for example, username and headline, is listed publicly on our Services, including on your profile page and in search results. Some Services, such as search and public user profiles do not require registration.

Additional Information: You may provide us with profile information to make public, such as a short biography, your location, your website, or a picture. You may provide information to customize your account, such as a cell phone number for the delivery of SMS messages when those services are available. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services or to market to you. You may use your account settings to unsubscribe from notifications from Typepath. You may also unsubscribe by following the instructions contained within the notification or the instructions on our website. We may use your contact information to help others find your Typepath account, including through third-
party services and future client applications. Your privacy settings control whether others can find you by your username, email address or cell phone number.

Messages, Following, Lists and other Public Information: Our Services are primarily designed to help you communicate with our contacts and websites throughout the world.

As explained in the Typepath Terms of Service, information provided by you outside of private messages and in the content of your public posts on the Site, describing your experiences and qualifications, and any signatures attached to postings on the Site (“Posts”) is not private or confidential. This is an Internet-based forum (akin to a modern version of a radio call-in program) and information submitted in public Posts may be read, collected, and used by others, and Typepath is not responsible for it. For example, search engines may index your public Posts to allow them to appear in search engine results (e.g. if someone does a search on google.com, your public Posts on Typepath that relate to the search may appear in the google.com search results list). Protect your anonymity by not including your real name or any personally identifying information in your pubic Posts on the Site.

This information in your Posts includes not only the messages you send and the metadata provided with messages, such as when you sent a message, but also the groups you create, your friends, and many other bits of information that result from your use of the Services. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide private. Your public information is broadly and instantly disseminated. For instance, your public user profile information and public messages may be searchable by search engines and are immediately delivered via SMS and our APIs to a wide range of users and services. When you share information or content like photos, videos, and links via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public.

Links: Typepath may keep track of how you interact with links across our Services, including our email notifications, third-party services, and client applications, by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to help improve our Services, to provide more relevant advertising, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.
Cookies: Like many websites, we use cookies and similar technologies to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Services, but we do not require cookies for many parts of our Services such as searching and looking at public user profiles or lists. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer’s hard disk. Typepath may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our Services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our Services, and to customize and improve our Services. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. However, some Services may not function properly if you disable cookies.

Log Data: Our servers automatically record information (“Log Data”) created by your use of the Services. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device and application IDs, search terms, and cookie information. We receive Log Data when you interact with our Services, for example, when you visit our websites, sign into our Services, interact with our email notifications, use your Typepath account to authenticate to a third- party website or application, or visit a third-party website that includes a Typepath button or widget. Typepath uses Log Data to provide our Services and to measure, customize, and improve them. If not already done earlier, for example, as provided below for Widget Data, we will either delete Log Data or remove any common account identifiers, such as your username, full IP address, or email address, after 18 months.

Widget Data: We may tailor content for you based on your visits to third-party websites that integrate Typepath buttons or widgets. When these websites first load our buttons or widgets for display, we receive Log Data, including the web page you visited and a cookie that identifies your browser (“Widget Data”). After a maximum of 10 days, we start the process of deleting or aggregating Widget Data, which is usually instantaneous but in some cases may take up to a week. While we have the Widget Data, we may use it to tailor content for you, such as suggestions for people to follow on Typepath. Tailored content is stored with only your browser cookie ID and is separated from other Widget Data such as page-visit information. This feature is optional and not yet available to all users. For messages, Log Data, and other information that we receive from interactions with Typepath buttons or widgets, please see the other sections of this Privacy Policy.

Third-Parties: Typepath uses a variety of third-party services to help provide our Services, such as hosting our various blogs and wikis, and to help us understand the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics. These third-party service providers may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP address. Third-party ad partners may share information with us, like a browser cookie ID or cryptographic hash of a common account identifier (such as an email address), to help us measure ad quality and tailor ads. For example, this allows us to display ads about things you may have already shown interest in.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
We do not disclose your private personal information except in the limited circumstances described here.
Your Consent: We may share or disclose your information at your direction, such as when you authorize a third-party web client or application to access your Typepath account.
