COMPANION CHRONICLES: TERMS OF USE

(Last modified and effective as of March 7, 2018)

 

The Companion Chronicles story project is an undertaking by the San Francisco SPCA (SF SPCA) to provide animal lovers with the opportunity to record and share their stories about the animals that have transformed them by bringing merriment, miracles, magic and meaning to their lives. Modeled—in spirit and in scope—after other oral history projects, the purpose of Companion Chronicles is to capture the power of the human-animal bond through pictures and people’s candid, unscripted written, audio and video stories about the animals who have inspired them. The collected stories represent the ideas, thoughts and views of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the SF SPCA.

PRIVACY

We respect your privacy. Our Privacy Policy (sfspca.org/terms-privacy) is incorporated into and forms a part of these Terms of Use and part of our agreement with you. Read it carefully since it describes, among other things, how we collect and use information we obtain when you use this Website.

To avoid any doubt, when we use “Content” it includes, but isn’t limited to, such things as software, code, design, text, images, photographs, illustrations, animations, audio, video and audio-visual material, art, graphic material, proprietary information, data, databases, service marks, trademarks, trade names, distinctive identification such as logos, the selection, sequence, ‘look and feel’ and arrangement of items and all copyrightable or otherwise legally protectable elements of this Website.

You keep ownership to any and all Content that is yours and if you submit or provide Content, these Terms of Use do not deprive you or any holder of your or their rights. However, when you do submit or provide Content to us or this Website, you are giving us an unconditional, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, royalty free worldwide license to host, store, use, display, reproduce, perform, adapt, edit, translate, modify, create derivative works of, publish, distribute, disseminate and/or broadcast that Content (“license”), including for promoting, marketing, and redistributing part or all of the Content in any media now known or hereafter invented for purposes permitted by law, and you are representing and warranting to us you have the right to give us such license. If you do not have the right to license Content to us (or if you are not sure), do not submit or provide Content to us. To the extent permitted by law, you waive any moral rights or similar rights you may have in any Content.

Please note that even if your account is terminated, we and any third-party partners who had access to such Content prior to termination may indefinitely retain all Content uploaded by your account at any time prior to the termination date.

Personal use means nothing commercial or even charitable, whether or not money or other compensation or consideration is involved and whether or not it is for your benefit or for someone else. This also means you are not allowed to use, display, reproduce, perform, adapt, translate, modify, create derivative works, publish, distribute, disseminate and/or broadcast Content that is not yours without our express prior written consent. You may not alter, delete or conceal copyright or other notices, even if we let you download, display, print or share the Content with others.

Your use of third-party sites is at your own risk. When you leave this Website, you should inquire and confirm from them the terms and conditions, privacy and other policies that apply to you since we neither control, nor have any responsibility for any third party sites, their practices or anything associated with their operations. In fact, even if another web site or web page has our name, logo or other identification normally associated with us, it may or may not be authorized and you should not assume it is our Website, unless it actually says so and the terms of use that apply to you are these Terms of Use.

You specifically agree and submit to the jurisdiction of the State and Federal Courts situated in the City and County of San Francisco and you will not object to jurisdiction or venue on the grounds of lack of personal jurisdiction, inconvenient forum or otherwise.

The illegality, invalidity or unenforceability of any term or condition is severable and shall not affect the rest of the Terms of Use. Headings are purely for reference and shall not affect the meaning of any term or condition. Any provision which must survive to allow us to enforce its meaning shall survive termination; however, no claim or action relating in any way to this Terms of Use, including our Privacy Policy, any Additional Terms, this Website, Content or otherwise with respect to the subject matter, regardless of form or the basis of the claim, may be brought by you more than one (1) year after the cause of action has arisen (or if multiple causes, from the date the first such cause of action arose).

2.0 ADDITIONAL TERMS – USER GENERATED CONTENT (UGC)

These Additional Terms form a part of our Terms of Use and apply to Posting of UGC (as defined below) using this Website. “Post” and “Posting” includes Content that is generated, developed, created and uploaded or submitted to this Website by you or by someone under your user account, including by way of example only and not limitation, any communications, images, sounds and all materials or information that you submit. The following additional provisions apply to content that you create and Post to our Website or share with other users through Posting or other facilities we provide. We will refer to that type of Content as “User Generated Content” or “UGC.”

YOU GIVE US SOME RIGHTS, BUT UGC IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY

When you Post UGC you grant us an irrevocable, unconditional, worldwide, royalty-free right and license to use, distribute, modify, adapt and publicly display the UGC you Post, on or in connection with this Website and we can use it to create compilations, adaptations and derivative works. You also understand and agree that other users and third parties may be able to obtain copies of UGC you Post and that we cannot and do not control them or what they may do or attempt to do with UGC you Post. Consequently, we cannot and do not accept or have any liability or obligations to you with respect to any UGC you Post and you do so at your own risk.

We do, of course, expect all our users to respect the rights of others and if you believe your right or anyone else’s rights are being violated or infringed upon or someone is not complying with our Terms of Use or is violating the law, you should notify us immediately. To report alleged copyright infringement in the United States only, please go to the Section entitled Notice and Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement included in the Additional Terms – Posting, that are part of our Terms of Use and follow the instructions. Subject to compliance with our legal and regulatory obligations, we reserve the right to take or refrain from taking any action available to us.

3.0 ADDITIONAL TERMS – POSTING

These Additional Terms form a part of our Terms of Use and apply to Posting (as defined below).

POSTING

This Website may provide you with an opportunity to submit, provide, furnish, transmit, make available, exchange, communicate, share and/or display Content to us and/or to other users (referred to as a “Post” or “Posting”). Sometimes we provide specific areas on this Website where you can Post information about yourself and others, communicate or upload Content such as photographs or audio-visual works. Posting includes not just Content in the form of files or material you upload to this Website, but also any messages or information you may send in the form of emails, text, SMS, and instant messages (IM), comments, advice, opinions and ideas, as well as information available as a result of your participation in chat rooms, forums and similar areas of this Website where you may be exchanging information and communicating with others. You should understand we intend the terms “Post” and “Posting” and any variations of these words to be construed as broadly as possible and when we use the term “Content” it includes all of these things and anything else you might Post.

You acknowledge and agree when you Post something, it enters the public domain without reservation of any rights by you or control over its subsequent use. Postings are not only viewable publicly, but others may collect and use what you Post. For example, if you Post your telephone number or your email address, you may receive unwanted calls or unsolicited messages. You agree you will not Post Content that is subject to any copyright, trademark or other intellectual property protections or proprietary rights, including any rights of confidentiality, privacy or publicity, unless you are the owner of such rights or a licensee or authorized agent with permission from the owner to make such Post. Each time you Post, you are representing to us that the Content you Post is in compliance with the preceding sentence and that the act of Posting, as well as the Content you Post, is not in violation of any laws or regulations or any obligations or agreements you may have, including our Terms of Use.

WE CAN USE YOUR POSTINGS

You authorize us to use your Post, in whole or in part, throughout the universe, in perpetuity in or on any and all media, now known or hereafter discovered or developed, alone or together, in compilations or combinations, as part of other Content of any kind or nature and in any manner of our choosing, without notice or attribution. You have no right to require and we have no obligation to pay any fees, charges or royalties for our use or exploitation of your Post and we reserve the right to delete your Posting at any time and in any manner we choose.

DON’T POST PERSONAL INFORMATION

You should never Post personal information because, as we note above, anything you Post or that is Posted through the use of your user account (e.g., if you allow others to use your user account or you fail to protect the confidentiality of your user account) may be seen and obtained by others and is or may become publicly available. Postings on this Website may appear on other websites or when someone uses search technology looking for subjects related to or about a Posting. Never assume what you Post will be kept confidential or that other users or third parties will not be able to see or obtain access to your Posts. Neither you nor we can control who may see or obtain Posts. Nor do we control or know what they may do with Postings or for what purpose they may be used. While we ask you not to Post or share personal information, if you decide to do so anyway, we urge you to exercise discretion and caution, because you should always assume personal information you Post is and will become publicly available and you Post personal information at your own risk.

We should also point out that no communications, especially those over the Internet and using the facilities of the World Wide Web, including this Website, can be guaranteed to be secure, and at the risk of repetition, you should assume any personal information you share, whether by Posting or otherwise, may be seen and read (and possibly used) by others who you do not know and you do not intend to have it or use it.

BE ACCURATE

When Posting, you must provide accurate and truthful information about yourself and avoid, being deceitful or Posting false or misleading information, expressly or by implication or omission. If information you previously Posted becomes outdated or changes, it’s up to you to promptly correct the Post or Post a correction, to avoid misleading or being deceptive to others on this Website.

Postings made with your user account are your responsibility, even if Postings are made by someone else. Your Name is the way you are identified online and if someone else is using your Name they may have access to information that you didn’t intend to publicly share, they may be able to make changes and take actions that appear to be you – whether you authorized them or not. If you know or suspect someone else is using your user account or the security of your user account may have been compromised, you must notify us at companionchronicles@sfspca.org immediately because unless and until we receive notice from you, you are responsible for Postings made with your user account and you will defend and indemnify us (See the Section of our Terms of Use entitled “You Are Indemnifying Us”) for any such Postings.

WE AREN’T RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR POSTINGS

We aren’t responsible, liable or accountable for Posts. We generally don’t screen or edit user Posts, although we reserve the right to do so and we may start, stop or decide to do so, for a particular reason or for no reason at all, at any time and from time to time in our sole discretion, without notice. We don’t endorse or support any particular opinion, recommendation, information, advice or anything contained in or that might be inferred from a Post. We certainly cannot and do not vouch for or guarantee the accuracy, validity, integrity or quality of any Posting and we cannot ensure that harmful, inaccurate, deceptive, offensive, defamatory, unlawful or otherwise objectionable Postings will not appear on this Website. By providing you and others with the ability to Post, this Website is a passive conduit and we neither undertake nor accept any obligation or liability relating to any Posting or the activities of users.

Don’t send us or Post any original creative ideas, suggestions, information, materials or content of any kind that you wish to maintain as proprietary or confidential, because once you Post or send us anything, subject, of course to our Privacy Policy, we otherwise have an unrestricted right to use it and do anything with it, in any way and for any purpose, without obligation or restriction at all and we have no obligation to pay you or notify you or let anyone know we got it from you.

DON’T RELY ON POSTED CONTENT

While we don’t assume our users intentionally Post inaccurate, false or misleading Content, neither we nor you can ever check the qualifications of those who Post, nor is there any way to know if Postings are made for entertainment or other purposes. Certainly, no online user could ever possibly Post Content relevant to your own personal circumstances or situation and you should never rely on any Postings in making decisions or taking or failing to take specific actions, especially those that could have an effect on you or anyone else. If you have specific concerns or circumstances arise in which you need professional financial, medical or other guidance and advice, you should always consult with a trained and qualified specialist.

TERMINATION OF YOUR RIGHTS

We reserve the right to terminate these Terms of Use, Additional Terms, and/or temporarily or permanently suspend, withdraw or restrict your access to some or all of your user account and/or the Website, at any time, effective immediately, with or without notice, for any or no reason whatsoever. If we terminate or restrict your use and access of the Website, then you must immediately stop using all portions of the Website. The provisions of this section shall survive any termination of these Terms of Use or Additional Terms. GENERAL RULES THAT APPLY TO POSTING
