Introduction

Contract

When you use our Services you agree to all of these terms. Your use of our Services is also subject to our Privacy Policy. By agreeing to this User Agreement, you agree to the terms of our Privacy Policy and to our Community Policies. Before using this Site, please carefully review our Privacy Policy. All profile information provided in the My Community site as a result of your use of this Site will be handled in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

Service

This Contract applies to My Community site. You are entering into this Contract with My Community (also referred to as “we,” “The,” and “us”). As a Visitor or Member of our Services, the collection, use and sharing of your community posts is subject to our Privacy Policy.

You are responsible for User-Generated Content that you post. Under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any UGC.

Change

We may modify this Contract, and our Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make material changes to it, we will provide you notice through our Services, or by other means, to provide you the opportunity to review the changes before they become effective. We agree that changes cannot be retroactive. If you object to any changes, you may cancel your profile. Your continued use of our Services after we publish or send a notice about our changes to these terms means that you are consenting to the updated terms as of their effective date.

To use the Services, you agree that: (1) you must be at least 16 or older; (2) you will only have one My Community account, which must be in your real name; and (3) you are not already restricted by My Community from using the Services. Creating an account with false information is a violation of our terms, including accounts registered on behalf of others or persons under the age of 16.

“Minimum Age” means 16 years old. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for My Community to lawfully provide the Services to you without parental consent (including using of your profile) then the Minimum Age is such older age.

Your use of others’ content and information posted on our Services, is at your own risk.

Others may offer their own products and services through the My Community, and we aren’t responsible for those third-party activities.

By using the My Community, you may encounter content or information that might be inaccurate, incomplete, delayed, misleading, illegal, offensive or otherwise harmful. My Community generally does not review content provided by our Members or others. You agree that we are not responsible for others’ (including other Members’) content or information. We cannot always prevent this misuse of our Services, and you agree that we are not responsible for any such misuse. You also acknowledge the risk that you or your organization may be mistakenly associated with content about others when we let connections and followers know you or your organization were mentioned in the news.

My Community may help connect Members offering their services (career coaching, accounting, etc.) with Members seeking services. My Community does not perform nor employs individuals to perform these services. You must be at least 18 years of age to offer, perform or procure these services. You acknowledge that My Community does not supervise, direct, control or monitor Members in the performance of these services and agree that (1) My Community is not responsible for the offering, performance or procurement of these services, (2) My Community does not endorse any particular Member’s offered services, and (3) nothing shall create an employment, agency, or joint venture relationship between My Community and any Member offering services.

We’re providing you notice about our intellectual property rights.

My Community reserves all of its intellectual property rights in the Services. Trademarks and logos used in connection with the Services are the trademarks of their respective owners.

Disclaimer and Limit of Liability

No Warranty

This is our disclaimer of legal liability for the quality, safety, or reliability of our Services.

My Community AND ITS AFFILIATES MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY ABOUT THE SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY REPRESENTATION THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, AND PROVIDE THE SERVICES (INCLUDING CONTENT AND INFORMATION) ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, My Community AND ITS AFFILIATES DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED OR STATUTORY WARRANTY, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF TITLE, ACCURACY OF DATA, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Exclusion of Liability

These are the limits of legal liability we may have to you.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW (AND UNLESS My Community HAS ENTERED INTO A SEPARATE WRITTEN AGREEMENT THAT OVERRIDES THIS CONTRACT), My Community, INCLUDING ITS AFFILIATES, WILL NOT BE LIABLE IN CONNECTION WITH THIS CONTRACT FOR LOST PROFITS OR LOST BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES, REPUTATION (E.G., OFFENSIVE OR DEFAMATORY STATEMENTS), LOSS OF DATA (E.G., DOWN TIME OR LOSS, USE OF, OR CHANGES TO, YOUR INFORMATION OR CONTENT) OR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES.

Basis of the Bargain; Exclusions

The limitations of liability in this section are part of the basis of the bargain between you and My Community and shall apply to all claims of liability (e.g., warranty, tort, negligence, contract and law) even if My Community or its affiliates has been told of the possibility of any such damage, and even if these remedies fail their essential purpose.

These limitations of liability do not apply to liability for death or personal injury or for fraud, gross negligence or intentional misconduct, or in cases of negligence where a material obligation has been breached, a material obligation being such which forms a prerequisite to our delivery of services and on which you may reasonably rely, but only to the extent that the damages were directly caused by the breach and were foreseeable upon conclusion of this Contract and to the extent that they are typical in the context of this Contract.

Termination

We can each end this Contract, but some rights and obligations survive.

Both you and My Community may terminate this Contract at any time with notice to the other. On termination, you lose the right to access or use the Services. The following shall survive termination:

  • Our rights to use and disclose your feedback; and
  • Members and/or Visitors’ rights to further re-share content and information you shared through the Services.

Governing Law and Dispute Resolution

In the unlikely event we end up in a legal dispute, you and My Community agree to resolve it in California courts using California law.

For others outside of Designated Countries, including those who live outside of the United States: You and My Community agree that the laws of the State of California, U.S.A., excluding its conflict of laws rules, shall exclusively govern any dispute relating to this Contract and/or the Services. 

General Terms

Here are some important details about the Contract.

If a court with authority over this Contract finds any part of it unenforceable, you and we agree that the court should modify the terms to make that part enforceable while still achieving its intent. If the court cannot do that, you and we agree to ask the court to remove that unenforceable part and still enforce the rest of this Contract.

This Contract (including additional terms that may be provided by us when you engage with a feature of the Services) is the only agreement between us regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements for the Services.

If we don’t act to enforce a breach of this Contract, that does not mean that My Community has waived its right to enforce this Contract. You may not assign or transfer this Contract (or your membership or use of Services) to anyone without our consent. However, you agree that My Community may assign this Contract to its affiliates or a party that buys it without your consent. There are no third-party beneficiaries to this Contract.

You agree that the only way to provide us legal notice is by email.
