POWWOW MOBILE

Website Terms of use

Acceptance of Terms:

PowWow Mobile, Inc. (“PowWow” or “us” or “we”) welcomes you to our Site!  The “Site” means www.powwowmobile.com, any mobile or localized versions, and related sub-domains, in whatever format they may be offered now or in the future.  Through the Site, we may provide you with general information regarding our company, products and services.

By using or accessing any part of the Site, you are agreeing to these Website Terms of Use (“Terms”), our Privacy Policy and all other policies or notices posted by us on our Site.  Portions of the Site may be accompanied by additional terms which apply to specific features or areas of the Site.  Those additional terms supplement these Terms with respect to your use of those features or areas.  These Terms may change over time, so whenever you visit or use this Site, you agree to the version of these Terms then posted.  If you don’t agree to these Terms, don’t use the Site.

PowWow also offers enterprise software products, online hosted offerings, and related services (collectively, the “PowWow Offerings”).  Use and provisioning of the PowWow Offerings are subject to separate terms, such as our Master License Agreement, and these Terms do not apply to use of or access to the PowWow Offerings, except where otherwise noted.

 

Permission to Use the Site

You have our permission to use the Site, but only if:

  • you are 13 years old or older;
  • you are using the Site for informational and internal business purposes (personally or on behalf of your company); and
  • you follow all the rules and restrictions we’ve spelled out in these Terms.

 

Accounts; Passwords; Security

You may need to set up an account in order to use all or parts of the Site.  When setting up your account, you must give us accurate and complete information.  This means you cannot set up an account using someone else’s name or contact information, or a phony name or phony contact information.  You have complete responsibility for your account and everything that happens on your account.  This means you need to be careful with your password.  If you find out that someone is using your account without your permission, you must let us know immediately.  You may not transfer your account to someone else or use someone else’s account without their permission.  We are not liable for any damages or losses caused by someone using your account without your permission.  However, if we (or anyone else) suffer any damage due to the unauthorized use of your account, you may be liable.

 

User Content

You are solely responsible for any User Content you post to the Site, and the consequences of posting or publishing it.   By “User Content”, we mean any Content a user posts to the Site.  “Content” means information, data, text, software, music, sound, photos, graphics, videos, messages, tags, interactive features, or any other materials. When we say “post”, we include posting, uploading, sharing, submitting or otherwise providing User Content in any manner in connection with the Site.

Restrictions on User Content and Your Conduct

You may not:

  • post User Content that you don’t own or don’t have permission from the owner to post; this includes material covered by someone else’s copyright, patent, trade secret, privacy, publicity, or any other proprietary right;
  • post User Content that is inaccurate, fraudulent, misleading, illegal, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, gives rise to civil liability, violates any law, or is otherwise inappropriate;
  • forge headers or manipulate other identifiers in order to disguise the origin of any User Content you post;
  • use meta tags or any other “hidden text” utilizing any of our or our suppliers’ product names or trademarks;
  • upload, launch, post, email or transmit any material (including any bot, worm, scripting exploit or computer virus) to or from the Site that is likely to harm or corrupt our Site, or harm or corrupt our or anyone else’s computer systems or data;
  • solicit, for commercial purposes, any users of our Site; this includes transmitting any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, junk mail, spam, chain letters, pyramid schemes, or any other form of solicitation;
  • impersonate anyone else or lie about your affiliation with another person or entity;
  • use our Site to harm minors in any way, including posting User Content that violates child pornography laws, child sexual exploitation laws, or any other laws protecting children;
  • collect or gather other people’s personal information (including account information) from our Site; or
  • use our Site for any other illegal purpose.

We have the sole right, but not necessarily the obligation, to delete or edit at any time any User Content that violates these rules or that we believe to be inappropriate for any reason.

Intellectual Property Rights in User Content

If you post User Content, you are making a guarantee to us that you either own all the User Content you are posting, or you have the right to post the User Content.  Furthermore, you are guaranteeing that you have the right to allow us to make your User Content available for others to view and use as part of the Site without requiring that any such use be subject to additional obligations or terms.  If you do not have these rights, do not post your User Content.  By posting your User Content, you do not lose any ownership rights you may have to it.  However, you do grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully-paid, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, and publicly display and perform your User Content in connection with the Site and our business, in any media formats or in tangible form and through any media channels now known or hereinafter developed.

You also agree to sharing and use of your User Content by other users as set forth in these terms.

User Content You Post Becomes Public

You understand that once you post your User Content, your User Content becomes public. We are not responsible for keeping any User Content confidential.  So, if you don’t want the whole world to see it, don’t post it on the Site.

In addition, we may share your User Content with third parties if we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of your User Content is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce these Terms, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of PowWow, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.

We Are Not Responsible for User Content

We generally do not monitor or review any User Content.  We do not endorse any User Content or support any views, opinions, recommendations, or advice that may be in User Content.  User Content comes from a variety of sources, and we make no promises about the reliability of any source or the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of any User Content.  You may be offended by User Content that you see on the Site.  You may find some of it to be inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable.  However, as further set forth below, you agree not to hold us responsible in any way for your use of our Site, including your exposure to User Content.

In addition, we are not a content-archiving service.  We do not promise to store or make available on our Site any User Content that you post, or any other Content, for any length of time.  You are solely responsible for keeping back-ups of everything you post on our Site.

Proprietary Rights

The Site contains proprietary and confidential information that is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws and PowWow and its suppliers retain all right, title and interest (including all copyright, trade secret, patent and other rights) in and to the Site and Content which is included in the Site (other than User Content).  If you give feedback on the Site, for example recommendations for improvements or features, we have the right to use the feedback in any way and implementation of that feedback is owned by us and may become part of the Site without compensation to you. We reserve all rights in and to the Site unless we expressly state otherwise.  We also reserve the right to make changes or updates to the Site or Content provided on or through the Site at any time without notice and we will own any such changes or updates (excluding User Content).

You may not:

  • decompile, reverse engineer or disassemble any object code which is part of or made available through the Site into a human-perceivable form, except and only to the extent that such activity is expressly permitted by applicable law, and in that case, only if you notify us in writing in advance;
  • copy, frameset, enclose or otherwise sell, distribute, transmit or broadcast any part of the Site;
  • modify or create any derivative work of any part of the Site;
  • disable, interfere, or try to get around any of the features of the Site related to security, preventing or restricting use or copying of any Content, or enforcing the limits on the use of the Site or the Content on the Site; or
  • use, export or re-export any Content or any copy or adaptation of such Content in violation of any applicable laws or regulations, including, without limitation, United States export laws and regulations.

All brand, product and service images, logos and names used in the Site that identify PowWow or our suppliers and our or their proprietary products and services are the trademarks or service marks of PowWow or our suppliers.  Nothing in this Site shall be deemed to confer on any person any license or right on the part of PowWow or such supplier with respect to any such image, logo or name.

 

Enforcement of Copyrights

We respect the intellectual property rights of others.  You may not use our Site to infringe anyone else’s copyright or other intellectual property right.  If we find out that you are infringing, we may remove your User Content.  We do not have to give you notice that we are removing your User Content.  In addition to our other rights and remedies, we may also terminate your account if we determine that you are a repeat copyright infringer.  We consider a repeat infringer to be a user who has been notified of infringing activity more than twice or who has had their User Content removed from our Site more than twice.

  1. General Terms

 

These Terms are governed by laws of the state of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles.  The sole jurisdiction and venue for any claim arising from the Site and these Terms shall be the state and federal courts located in San Francisco, California and each party hereby consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts.  These Terms, together with our Privacy Policy and any other notices or policies we have published on the Site (and additional terms for specific features or areas, as applicable), constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding this Site.  If a court having proper authority decides that any portion of these Terms is invalid, only the part that is invalid will not apply.  The rest of these Terms will still be in effect.  If we waive any of our rights under these Terms in any particular instance, it does not mean that we are waiving our rights generally or in the future.  Furthermore, just because we may not enforce all our rights all of the time, it does not mean that we are waiving our rights.  We may decide to enforce them at a later date.  These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted under these Terms, may not be transferred or assigned by you except as expressly set forth herein, but may be assigned by us without restriction.  We won’t be liable to you for any delay or failure to perform any obligation we have under these Terms if the delay or failure is due to events which are beyond our reasonable control, including but not limited to any strike, blockade, war, act of terrorism, riot, natural disaster, failure or diminishment of power or of telecommunications or data networks or services, or refusal of approval or a license by a government agency.

 

YOU AGREE THAT if you want to sue us, you must file your lawsuit within ONE (1) year after the event that gave rise to your lawsuit.  OTHERWISE, your lawsui
