Optando Access
B. In order to access and use the features of the Service, you acknowledge and agree that you will have to provide Optando with your email address. You are solely responsible for the status messages that you submit and that are displayed for your user name and email address on the Optando Service. You must notify Optando immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your mobile phone. Although Optando will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you may be liable for the losses of Optando or others due to such unauthorized use.
C. You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, "robots," "spiders," "offline readers," etc. or "load testers" such as wget, apache bench, mswebstress, httpload, blitz, Xcode Automator, Android Monkey, etc., that accesses the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the Optando servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a Optando application, and you are forbidden from ripping the content unless specifically allowed. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Optando grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the website for the sole purpose of creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. Optando reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases. While we don't disallow the use of sniffers such as Ethereal, tcpdump or HTTPWatch in general, we do disallow any efforts to reverse-engineer our system, our protocols, or explore outside the boundaries of the normal requests made by Optando clients. We have to disallow using request modification tools such as fiddler or whisker, or the like or any other such tools activities that are meant to explore or harm, penetrate or test the site. You must secure our permission before you measure, test, health check or otherwise monitor any network equipment, servers or assets hosted on our domain. You agree not to collect or harvest any personally identifiable information, including phone number, from the Service, nor to use the communication systems provided by the Service for any commercial solicitation or spam purposes. You agree not to spam, or solicit for commercial purposes, any users of the Service.5. Intellectual Property Rights
The design of the Optando Service along with Optando created text, scripts, graphics, interactive features and the like, except Status Submissions (as defined below), and the trademarks, service marks and logos contained therein ("Marks"), are owned by or licensed to Optando, subject to copyright and other intellectual property rights under United States and foreign laws and international conventions. The Service is provided to you AS IS for your information and personal use only. Optando reserves all rights not expressly granted in and to the Service. You agree to not engage in the use, copying, or distribution of any of the Service other than expressly permitted herein, including any use, copying, or distribution of Status Submissions of third parties obtained through the Service for any commercial purposes.6. User Status Submissions
A. The Optando Service automatically submits “last seen”your online or offline status to other users in your group (on each group member's smartphone or tablet) and allows Optando users to submit status text, profile photos and other communications (collectively, the "Status Submissions"). These Status Submissions may be hosted, shared, and/or published as part of the Optando Service. There is no method of providing different levels of visibility of your Status Submissions among users configured in your group. You acknowledge and agree that any Status Submissions may be globally viewed by users that are in your group. The submission of your 'last seen'online or offline status is done on an automatic basis. You retain your ownership rights in your Status Submissions. You understand that Optando does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any submissions.
Direct messages, location data and photos or files that you send directly to other Optando users will only be viewable by those Optando user(s) or group(s) you directly send such information.
B. You shall be solely responsible for your own Status Submissions and the consequences of posting or publishing them. Because Optando is only acting as a repository of data, user submitted statuses do not represent the views or opinions of Optando, and Optando makes no guarantees as to the validity, accuracy or legal status of any Status Submission. In connection with Status Submissions, including profile photos and avatars, you affirm, represent, and/or warrant that: (i) you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to any and all Status Submissions; (ii) you authorize Optando to use all proprietary rights herein to enable inclusion and use of the Status Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service; and (iii) you have the written consent, release, and/or permission of each and every identifiable individual person in the Status Submission to use the name or likeness of each and every such identifiable individual person to enable inclusion and use of the Status Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service.
By submitting the Status Submissions to Optando, you hereby grant Optando a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the Status Submissions in connection with the Optando Service and Optando's (and its successor's) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Optando Service (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels. You also hereby grant each subscriber to your status on the Optando Service a non-exclusive license to access your Status Submissions through the Service. The foregoing license granted by you terminates once you remove or delete a Status Submission from the Optando Service. You retain lawful ownership rights in your Status Submissions.
C. In connection with Status Submissions, you further agree that you will not: (i) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage Optando or any third party; (ii) submit material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate; (iii) post advertisements or solicitations of business; (iv) impersonate another person; (v) send or store material containing software viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other harmful computer code, files, scripts, agents or programs; (vi) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Service or the data contained therein; or (vii) attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Service or its related systems or networks.
D. Adult content must be identified as such. Optando does not endorse any Status Submission or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and Optando expressly disclaims any and all liability in connection with Status Submissions. Optando does not permit copyright infringing activities and infringement of intellectual property rights via its Service, and Optando will remove all content and Status Submissions if properly notified that such content or Status Submission infringes on another's intellectual property rights. To file a copyright infringement notification, please send a written communication that includes substantially the following (see Section 512(c)(3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act): (i) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (ii) Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works; (iii) Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material, including the mobile phone number of the Optando user allegedly infringing the copyrighted work; (iv) Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted; (v) A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. Such takedown notices may be emailed to support at optando.com. Optando reserves the right to remove content and Status Submissions without prior notice. Optando may also terminate a user's access to the Service, if they are determined to be a repeat infringer, or for any or no reason, including being annoying. A repeat infringer is a User who has been notified of infringing activity more than once and/or has had a Status Submission removed from the Service more than twice. An annoying person is anyone who is (capriciously or not) determined to be annoying by authorized Optando employees, agents, subagents, superagents or superheros. Optando also reserves the right to decide whether content or a Status Submission is appropriate and complies with these Terms of Service for violations other than copyright infringement and violations of intellectual property law, such as, but not limited to excessive length or limited interest. Optando may remove such Status Submissions and/or terminate a User's access for uploading such material in violation of these Terms of Service at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion.
E. You understand that when using the Optando Service you will be exposed to Status Submissions from a variety of sources, and that Optando is not responsible for the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of or relating to such Status Submissions, and that such Status Submissions are not the responsibility of Optando. You further understand and acknowledge that you may be exposed to Status Submissions that are inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable, and you agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against Optando with respect thereto, and agree to indemnify and hold Optando, its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, and/or licensors, harmless to the fullest extent allowed by law regarding all matters related to your use of the Optando Service.
