Welcome to a small studio. We are excited to have you here. We want to share with you the Terms and Conditions (we’ll refer to them as the “Terms” the rest of the way) that will apply to you while you’re here. This includes your use of our websites, services, applications, and any other way you interact with what we’re putting out into the world (we’ll refer to these collectively as the “Service”).
You may need to create an account to use the Service. If so, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password. We will not be liable for any harm resulting from your failure to maintain the security of your account and password. Also, you will be responsible for all content posted and activity that occurs under your account, including content posted by others who have access to your account.
You may be permitted to post, upload, or otherwise contribute content to the Service (“User Content”). If you post any User Content, you agree that:
We reserve the right to remove any User Content from the Service that fails to meet these standards. However, we are not obligated to monitor, review, edit, or remove User Content. If you believe that any User Content violates your copyright, please see our Copyright Policy for instructions on sending us a notice of copyright infringement. It is our policy to terminate the user accounts of repeat infringers.
You will retain all ownership rights in User Content you post. However, you agree to grant us a license with respect to this User Content. The license gives us the rights to use, display, reproduce, distribute, and otherwise disclose the User Content in connection with providing the Service, in our marketing communications, and for any other purpose. The license to these rights is non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, fully paid, and worldwide.
If you provide feedback, ideas, or suggestions to us in connection with the Service or User Content (“Feedback”), you acknowledge that the Feedback isn’t confidential and you authorize us to use that Feedback without restriction and without payment to you. Feedback is considered a type of User Content.
Our Service may contain links to third party websites or services that we don’t own or control. Because we don’t own or control these websites or services, we cannot be responsible for their contents or their use. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself from viruses and other harmful or destructive content, and we encourage you to read the terms and conditions, privacy policies, and other relevant policies of any third party websites or services you visit or access. You agree that we will not be responsible or liable for any damages or loss caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any content, goods, or services available on or through any such third party websites or services.
The foundation of our Service is the intellectual property we’ve developed, and so it’s important for us to share what that is and the rights we have in it. The Service and its original content, features, functionality, and “look and feel” are and will remain our exclusive property, and are protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret, and other intellectual property laws. Note, though, that this section does not apply to User Content.
We grant you limited, non-exclusive, revocable permission to make use of and have access to the Service and the User Content. The Service and the User Content are not sold or transferred to you and we and our licensors, respectively, retain ownership of the Service and the User Content.
All of our trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, domain names, and any other features of our brand are our sole property; these Terms do not grant you any rights to use any features of our brand whether for commercial or non-commercial purposes.
We created the Service to help others. Yet we recognize that even the best tools can be used to harm. That’s why we’ve imposed restrictions on how you can use the Service, which prevent you from doing any of the following:
These restrictions are not exhaustive. If you find yourself looking for loopholes here, you’re probably looking for ways to use the Service for harm. If you use the Service for harm, we reserve the right to restrict or terminate your access to the Service.
We have the right to suspend or terminate your account and/or to refuse you access to the Service for any reason at any time. So long as you’re complying with the Terms, you shouldn’t be too concerned about this. The reason we include this clause is protect ourselves—and our users—against the very small percentage of users who behave badly. If you want to terminate your account, you can simply stop using the Service. Additionally, accounts that are inactive for more than a year may be terminated without notice to you.
One more thing: Don’t abuse our team. They’re at the core of what we do, and if you subject any of them to verbal, physical, written or other abuse, we will immediately terminate your account and refuse you access to the Service.
The language in this section was written by our lawyer, but we wanted to try and preview it in simpler language: You’re choosing to use our Service, and we’re glad you are, but if things don’t work out for you in connection with using our Service, we’re not going to be responsible for that.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless us, our affiliates, licensors, and service providers, and its and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, suppliers, successors, and assigns from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses, or fees (including reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of or relating to your violation of these Terms.
You use the Service at your own risk. We provide the Service on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis. The Service is provided without warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including without limitation implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, accuracy, completeness, performance, system integration, non-infringement or course of performance. In addition, we make no representation nor do we warrant, endorse, guarantee, or assume responsibility for any User Content.
We’re a Washington company, and so these Terms (and any dispute or claim arising from or related to the Terms) will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of State of Washington, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Any lawsuit arising out of, or related to, these Terms or the Service will be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of Washington, in each case located in the City of Seattle and County of King. At our sole discretion, we may require you to submit any disputes arising from these Terms or use of the Service to final and binding arbitration under the Rules of Arbitration of the American Arbitration Association applying Washington law.
No waiver by us of any of any term or condition set out in these Terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure by us to assert a right or provision under these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or arbitrator to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision will be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provision of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.
The Terms (and any other agreements referenced in the Terms) constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding the subject matters in the Terms.
Similarly, we cannot assume any responsibility for the content of any personal information or other information which you receive from other users through the Services, and you release us from any and all liability in connection with the contents of any personal information or other information which you may receive using the Services. We cannot guarantee, or assume any responsibility for verifying, the accuracy of the personal information or other information provided by any third party. You release us from any and all liability in connection with the use of such personal information or other information of others.
