Popfolio.net Terms Of Service
19 May 2007
Popfolio.net is a music, social networking service and online advertising platform that allows Members to create unique personal profiles online in order to promote and/or sell their music, socialize with fans, create online advertisements and host the Poptopus widget. The services offered by Popfolio.net ("Popfolio") include the Popfolio.net website, the Poptopus music widget, and any other features, content, or applications offered from time to time by Popfolio in connection with the Popfolio.net Website (collectively, the "Popfolio Services"). By using the Popfolio Services you accept and agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions (the 'Terms of Service'). Where applicable under law, these Terms constitute a 'writing signed by you.'
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or delete portions of these Terms of Service at any time without further notice. Your continued use of the Web site after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Service. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these Terms of Service so that you will be updated of any changes.
Please be careful of the information you post on Popfolio and that you provide to other Users. Your Popfolio.net profile may not include the following items: telephone numbers, street addresses, last names, and any photographs containing nudity, or obscene, lewd, excessively violent, harassing, sexually explicit or otherwise objectionable subject matter. Despite this prohibition, information provided by other Popfolio.net Members (for instance, in their Profile) may contain inaccurate, inappropriate, offensive or sexually explicit material, products or services, and Popfolio.net assumes no responsibility or liability for this material. Please report any misuse of the Popfolio Services by contacting us here.
Popfolio.net reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to reject, refuse to post or remove any posting (including private messages and comments) by you, or to restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to all or any part of the Popfolio Services at any time, for any or no reason, with or without prior notice, and without liability. Popfolio expressly reserves the right to remove your profile and/or restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to any part of Popfolio Services if Popfolio determines, in its sole discretion, that you pose a threat to Popfolio and/or its Users.
You must be 14 years or older to use the Popfolio Services. By registering for the Popfolio Services, you represent and warrant that you are 14 or older and that you have the capacity to understand, agree to and comply with these Terms of Service. You should provide true, accurate and complete registration information to be a Popfolio.net member ('Member'). You will be asked to select a username and be given a password during registration and you will be responsible for all activities occurring under your username and for keeping your password secure.
Popfolio does not claim any ownership rights in the text, files, images, photos, video, sounds, musical works, works of authorship, or any other materials (collectively, "Content") that you post to the Popfolio Services. After posting your Content to the Popfolio Services, you continue to retain all ownership rights in such Content, and you continue to have the right to use your Content in any way you choose. By displaying or publishing ("posting") any Content on or through the Popfolio Services, you hereby grant to Popfolio a limited license to use, modify, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce, and distribute such Content solely on and through the Popfolio Services.
Without this license, Popfolio would be unable to provide the Popfolio Services. For example, without the right to modify Member Content, Popfolio would not be able to digitally compress music files that Members submit or otherwise format Content to satisfy technical requirements, and without the right to publicly perform Member Content, Popfolio could not allow Users to listen to music posted by Members. The license you grant to Popfolio is non-exclusive (meaning you are free to license your Content to anyone else in addition to Popfolio), fully-paid and royalty-free (meaning that Popfolio is not required to pay you for the use on the Popfolio Services of the Content that you post, except through the advertising revenue share owed to you through the Poptopus widget), sublicensable (so that Popfolio is able to use its affiliates and subcontractors such as Internet content delivery networks to provide the Popfolio Services), and worldwide (because the Internet and the Popfolio Services are global in reach). This license will terminate at the time you remove your Content from the Popfolio Services. The license does not grant Popfolio the right to sell your Content unless you also agree to the separate Digital Music Sales Agreement, nor does the license grant Popfolio the right to distribute your Content outside of the Popfolio Services.
You represent and warrant that: (i) you own the Content posted by you on or through the Popfolio Services or otherwise have the right to grant the license set forth in this section, and (ii) the posting of your Content on or through the Popfolio Services does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights or any other rights of any person. You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owing any person by reason of any Content posted by you to or through the Popfolio Services.
The Popfolio Services contain Content of Popfolio.net ("Popfolio.net Content"). Popfolio.net Content is protected by copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret and other laws, and Popfolio owns and retains all rights in the Popfolio.net Content and the Popfolio Services. Popfolio hereby grants you a limited, revocable, nonsublicensable license to reproduce and display the Popfolio.net Content (excluding any software code) solely for your personal use in connection with viewing the Popfolio Website and using the Popfolio Services.
The Popfolio Services contain Content of Users and other Popfolio licensors. Except for Content posted by you, you may not copy, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, display, or sell any Content appearing on or through the Popfolio Services.
