The Operators reserve all rights to the Service Content, User Content, and any other component or content of the Service not expressly granted to the User by these TOS.
- The Operators provide the Service for the personal, non-commercial use of viewers, visitors, subscribers or potential subscribers of the Service. The User is granted a personal, non-exclusive, nontransferable license to view, on a single computer or other viewing device only, the content of the Service. The Operators reserve the right to limit the amount of materials viewed or accessible. Commercial use of any content or other component of the Service, other than the User’s own commercial use of User Content the User has uploaded, is strictly prohibited.

- By submitting, posting, or communicating User Content using the Service, the User grants to the Operators an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid, royalty-free, worldwide license, including for commercial purposes, to: (1) use, copy, publicly perform, publicly display, reformat, translate, excerpt (in whole or in part) and distribute the User Content in or through any medium now known or hereafter invented, for any purpose; (2) to prepare derivative works using the User Content, or to incorporate it into other works, for any purpose; and (3) to grant and authorize sublicenses of any or all of the foregoing rights.
- The Operators do not assert any ownership over any User Content; rather, subject to the rights granted to the Operators in these TOS, the User retains full ownership of all its User Content and any intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights associated with its User Content.
- The Operators may obtain and exercise intellectual property rights over compilations, collective works, or derivative works that incorporate User Content the User has provided. In that case, the rights the Operators obtain will apply only to the compilation, collective work, or derivative work; as between the Operators and the User, subject to the rights granted to the Operators in these TOS, the User will retain full ownership of and rights to its User Content.
- By submitting or communicating any User Content using the Service, the User also authorizes the Operators to record and make such copies thereof as it deems necessary in order to facilitate the posting, maintenance, and storage of the User Content as part of the Service.
OBJECTIONABLE OR INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT
- By its very nature, the Service may include offensive, harmful, inaccurate or otherwise offensive or objectionable material. In some cases, the Service may include content that has been mislabeled or is otherwise deceptive. The User will use caution and common sense and exercise proper judgment when using the Service. The Operators do not endorse, support, represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any content provided by the Service. The User acknowledges that any use of or reliance on material provided by the Service will be at its own risk.
- The Operators may review any content provided by the Service, including any User Content uploaded using the Service, and reserves the right to refuse to distribute any such content or to remove any content from the Service, in its sole discretion. However, the User acknowledges and agrees that the Operators are not obliged to remove any content, including User Content, from the Service, unless and until it is established pursuant to the requirements of the law that the content is illegal or should be removed for any other reason.
- If the User believes any content provided by the Service is illegal or violates these TOS, the User may inform the Operators by using its contact form. The Operators will review the User’s message and the content to which the User objects (provided it is still available through the Service). The Operators may remove the content if, in the Operators’ judgment, it is illegal or otherwise inappropriate. The User understands that deciding whether content is inappropriate is a judgment call, and that the Operators are not legally responsible for content that it does not originate. Neither are the Operators legally responsible for removing content that it deems inappropriate from the Service.
- The Operators reserve the right to access, read, preserve, disclose and otherwise process any information as it reasonably believes is necessary to do any of the following: (1) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or legitimate governmental request; (2) enforce these TOS, including investigation of potential violations hereof; (3) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; (4) respond to user support requests; or (5) protect the rights, property or safety of the Operators, its users and the general public. The User agrees that the Operators will not be liable for exercising or failing to exercise any of these rights.
- The Operators respect the intellectual property rights of others. The Operators prohibit users from uploading, posting or otherwise transmitting materials that violate the intellectual property rights of others. If any copyright owner or an agent thereof believes that any content of the Service infringes upon its copyrights, he may submit a notification of alleged copyright infringement ("Infringement Notice") in accordance with 17 U.S.C. § 512 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") by following the directions on the Operator’s DMCA Page.
- Upon receipt by the Operator of an Infringement Notification the Operator will proceed as follows:
- If the Infringement Notice concerns the User Content of a User against whose account no more than three Infringement Events, as defined hereunder, have been recorded, the Operator will forward the Infringement Notice to the User who has at any time uploaded the relevant User Content and request that User to provide the Operators' designated copyright agent within seventy-two (72) hours after forwarding the Infringement Notice to the User with a proper Counter Notice that complies in every respect with the requirements of 17 U.S.C. § 512(g)(3).
- For each event of the User failing to provide the Operators’ designated copyright agent within seventy-two (72) hours after receipt of the Infringement Notice by the User with a Counter-Notice an "Infringement Event" will be recorded against the User’s account. Upon each Infringement Event the Operators have the right to reveal all information in its possession concerning the User’s account and usage of the Service to law enforcement authorities, copyright owners and other parties.
- By the User’s use of the Service, the User acknowledges and agrees that the Operators' belief the User is a repeat copyright infringer may be rationally based upon the occurrence of four or more Infringement Events, where: (i) the Infringement Notices are directed towards materials that the User has submitted for publication on the Service; and (ii) the Infringement Notices do not concern what the Operators reasonably believe to be "fair uses" of copyrightable material as determined under 17 U.S.C. § 107.
- In the event that a fourth Infringement Event is recorded against the User’s account that account will be blocked from submitting any more materials to the Service. The Operators, however, in certain circumstances and in its sole discretion have the right to do so upon the first or any later Infringement Event and may also in their sole discretion delete the User’s account.
NAMES AND TRADEMARKS
The logos and product or service names used for the Service or otherwise on Pinflix.com are trademarks owned by the Operators. All other trademarks used in the Service or otherwise on Pinflix.com are trademarks of their respective owners and the Operators’ reference to them does not imply or indicate any approval or endorsement by their owners unless such approval or endorsement is expressly made.
SPONSORS, ADVERTISERS AND THIRD PARTIES
- The Service may provide links to sponsor, advertiser, or other third-party websites that are not owned or controlled by the Operators. Inclusion of, linking to, or permitting the use or installation of any third-party website, application, software, advertising or other content does not imply any approval or endorsement thereof by the Operators. The Operators have no control over, and assumes no responsibility for any such third-party content including the privacy policies and practices of any third parties. By accessing or using the Service, the User agrees to release the Operators from any and all liability arising from the User’s use of any third-party website, content, service, or software accessed through the Service.
- The User’s communications or dealings with, or participation in promotions of, sponsors, advertisers, or other third parties found through the Service, are solely between the User and such third parties.

The Operators may, in its sole discretion, terminate the User’s access to the Service, delete any content or information that the User has posted or communicated through the Service, and/or prohibit the User from using the Service, at any time, with or without notice, and for any reason, including but not limited to violation of these TOS.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES
- The User expressly understands and agrees that its use of the Service is at the User’s sole risk. The Service is provided on an as-is and as-available basis. The Operators expressly disclaims any and all warranties of any kind for the Service, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.
- In particular, and without limitation, the Operators make no warranty that: (1) the Service will meet the User’s requirements; (2) the Service will be uninterrupted, timely, secure and error-free; (3) the results that may be obtained from the use of the Service will be accurate and reliable; (4) the quality of any products, services, information or other material obtained by the User through the Service will meet the User’s expectations; (5) any errors in the contents or components of the Service will be corrected; or (6) the Service is free of viruses and other harmful components.
- No advice or information, oral or written, obtained by the User from the Operators will create any warranty not expressly stated in these TOS.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
- The User expressly understands and agrees that the Operators will not be liable for: (1) any criminal or other offences or any non-compliance with applicable laws the User is accused of or convicted for and; (2) any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (even if the Operators have been advised of the possibility of such damages), in each case resulting from the use by the User of or its inability to use the Service.
- In particular, and without limitation, the Operators will have no liability for damages arising from: (1) accessing, downloading, or otherwise obtaining any content or component of the Service, even if it results in the inadvertent transfer of harmful computer code, such as viruses, malware, or spyware; (2) unauthorized access to or disclosure or alteration of any of the User’s postings, transmissions or data; (3) content or conduct of any third party provided through the Service; or (4) as otherwise indicated in these TOS.
- Under no circumstances will the Operators’s total liability for any and all claims by the User arising out of or related to these TOS or the use of the Service exceed the greater of: (1) the amount paid by the User to the Operators for using the Service and; (2) the amount of US$ 100
EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS
- Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the limitations on liability and damages contained in these TOS may not apply to the User and these TOS will apply to the furthest extent permitted by the jurisdiction applying for the relationship between the Operators and the User.
- The provisions of these TOS that provide for limitations of liability, disclaimers of warranties, or exclusion of damages allocate risks between the User and the Operators. That allocation is reflected in the delivery of free content to the User by the Operators, and is an essential element of the transactions between the User and the Operators. Each of the provisions of these TOS is severable and independent of all other provisions of these TOS. The limitations of liability, disclaimers of warranties, or exclusion of damages in these TOS will apply notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy under these TOS.
The User agrees to hold harmless and indemnify the Operators, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from and against any third-party claim arising from or in any way related to the User’s use of the Service, including any liability or expense arising from all claims, losses, damages (actual and consequential), suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys' fees, of every kind and nature. The Operators will make reasonable efforts to provide the User with written notice of any such claim, suit or action, but the failure of the Operators to provide such notice will not relieve the User of these obligations.
I If any provision of the TOS is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the User and the Operators nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the their intentions as reflected in the relevant provision, and the other provisions of the TOS remain in full force and effect.
The failure of the Operators to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the TOS will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
CHOICE OF LAW
The agreement created by these TOS, and any dispute arising from or relating to these TOS or the provision or use of the Service, will be governed by the laws of the United States and the State of Illinois, without giving effect to conflict of laws provisions.
ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
- The User and the Operators agree that disputes between them will be resolved through binding and final arbitration instead of through court proceedings. The User and the Operators hereby waive any right to a jury trial of any dispute between them that is subject to this arbitration agreement. Neither the User nor the Operators may bring a claim against the other as a class action. Neither the User nor the Operators may act as a private attorney general or class representative, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants with respect to any dispute or claim between them.
- As used in this Clause 19, the terms "Operators" and "User" include the Operators’ and the User’s respective owners, officers, directors, shareholders, employees, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, predecessors in interest, successors, attorneys, and assigns. This Clause 19 will be interpreted broadly, and will encompass all disputes between the User and the Operators, including, but not limited to claims that relate in any way to the relationship between the User and the Operators, the User’s use of the Service, and any advertising or content of the Service, regardless of legal or equitable theory.
- This Clause 19 does not preclude the User from seeking action by United States federal, state, or local government agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief from the Operators on the User’s behalf. Moreover, the User and the Operators have the right to bring qualifying claims in small claims court.
- Arbitration of any dispute or claim must be initiated within two years, or within the period of time provided by applicable statute, after the date on which the basis for the dispute or claim first arises. The arbitration will be conducted by the JAMS Foundation dispute resolution service pursuant to the JAMS Arbitration Administrative Policies and, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties, to the applicable JAMS Arbitration Rules and Procedures. To initiate arbitration, the User or the Operators must submit a claim to JAMS, 71 S. Wacker-Drive Suite 3090, Chicago, IL 60606, with notice to the other party by certified mail.
- These TOS may evidence a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the arbitration will be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16 et seq. ("FAA"). In addition, the arbitration will be conducted under the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures ("JAMS Rules") in effect on the date of commencement of the arbitration, as modified by these TOS. The arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator. The arbitration will be based entirely on the written submissions of the parties and documents submitted to the arbitrator, unless the parties agree or the arbitrator orders otherwise. Unless the parties agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not join the User’s claim(s) or the Operators’ claim(s) with any other claim, and may not preside over any representative or class proceedings. The payment of fees and other costs to JAMS will be governed by the JAMS rules.
- In issuing any award, the arbitrator will issue a written decision that is sufficiently detailed to inform both the User and the Operators of the reasons for his or her decision. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only as necessary to provide the relief warranted by that party's individual claim. Any award may be confirmed and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. All post-award proceedings will be governed by the FAA.
