You acknowledge that Provider does not pre-screen or approve Content but that Provider shall have the right (but not the obligation) in its sole discretion to refuse, delete or move any Content that is available via the Service for violating the letter or spirit of the TOU or for any other reason.

  1. Account Data

You agree that you do not own the account you use to access the Service, nor do you own any data Provider stores on Provider’s servers (including without limitation any data representing or embodying any or all of your Content). Your intellectual property rights do not confer any rights of access to the Service or any rights to data stored by or on behalf of Provider.

  1. THIRD PARTY CONTENT, SITES, AND SERVICES

The Provider site and Content available through the Service may contain features and functionalities that may link you or provide you with access to third party content which is completely independent of Provider, including web sites, directories, servers, networks, systems, information and databases, applications, software, programs, products or services, and the Internet as a whole. Your interactions with organizations and/or individuals found on or through the Service, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such organizations and/or individuals.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

  1. NOTIFICATION OF CLAIMS OF INFRINGEMENT

  8. use any form of automated device or computer program (“flagging tool”) that enables the use of Provider’ “flagging system” or other community moderation systems without each flag being manually entered by the person that initiates the flag (an “automated flagging device”), or use the flagging tool to remove posts of competitors, or to remove posts without a good faith belief that the post being flagged violates these TOU; or

  9. permit the use of the Service by unauthorized persons.

  1. POSTING AGENTS

A “Posting Agent” is a third-party agent, service, or intermediary that offers to post Content to the Service on behalf of others. To moderate demands on Provider’s resources, you may not use a Posting Agent to post Content to the Service without express permission or license from Provider. Correspondingly, Posting Agents are not permitted to post Content on behalf of others, to cause Content to be so posted, or otherwise access the Service to facilitate posting Content on behalf of others, except with express permission or license from Provider.

  1. NO SPAM POLICY

Sending unsolicited email advertisements to Provider email addresses or through Provider computer systems is expressly prohibited by this TOU and constitutes a violation of this TOU. As Provider’s servers are located in Washington State, sending unsolicited email advertisements to Provider email addresses or through Provider computer systems is a violation of the Revised Code of Washington Chapter 19.190, as well as a violation of other federal and state laws, including without limitation the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (18 U.S.C. § 1030 et seq.) Such violations may subject the sender and his or her agents to civil and criminal penalties.

  1. LIMITATIONS ON SERVICE

You acknowledge that Provider may establish limits concerning use of the Service, including the maximum number of days that Content will be retained by the Service, the maximum number and size of postings, email messages, or other Content that may be transmitted or stored by the Service, and the frequency with which you may access the Service. You agree that Provider has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any Content maintained or transmitted by the Service. You acknowledge that Provider reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice, and that Provider shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.

  1. ACCESS TO THE SERVICE

Use of the Service beyond the scope of authorized access granted to you by Provider immediately terminates said license. In order to collect, aggregate, copy, duplicate, display or make derivative use of the Service or any Content made available via the Service for other purposes (including commercial purposes) not stated herein, you must first obtain a written license from Provider.

  1. TERMINATION OF SERVICE

  1. VIOLATION OF TERMS AND LIQUIDATED DAMAGES

Please report any violations of the TOU using reporting methods set forth on the Provider website such as by flagging a posting for review, or by emailing Provider at support@rallynow.com.

You understand and agree that, because damages are often difficult to quantify, if it becomes necessary for Provider to pursue legal action to enforce the TOU, you will be liable to pay Provider the following amounts as liquidated damages, which you accept as reasonable estimates of Provider’s damages for the specified breaches of the TOU:

  1. If you post a message that (1) impersonates any person or entity; (2) falsely states or otherwise misrepresents your affiliation with a person or entity; or (3) that includes personal or identifying information about another person without that person’s explicit consent, you agree to pay Provider one thousand dollars ($1,000) for each such message.

  2. If you send unsolicited email advertisements or post unsolicited advertisements to Provider email addresses or through Provider computer systems, you agree to pay Provider twenty five dollars ($25) for each such message.

  3. If you post Content in violation of the TOU, other than as described above, you agree to pay Provider one hundred dollars ($100) for each Item of Content posted.

  4. If you are a Posting Agent that uses the Service in violation of the TOU, in addition to any liquidated damages, you agree to pay Provider one hundred dollars ($100) for each and every Item you post in violation of the TOU. A Posting Agent will also be deemed an agent of the party engaging the Posting Agent to access the Service (the “Principal”), and the Principal (by engaging the Posting Agent in violation of the TOU) agrees to pay Provider an additional one hundred dollars ($100) for each Item posted by the Posting Agent on behalf of the Principal in violation of the TOU.

  5. If you aggregate, display, copy, duplicate, reproduce, or otherwise exploit for any purpose any Content (except your own Content) in violation of these Terms without Provider’s express written permission, you agree to pay Provider three thousand dollars ($3,000) for each day on which you engage in such conduct.

Otherwise, you agree to pay Provider’s actual damages, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably calculated. In its sole discretion, Provider may elect to issue a warning before assessing damages.

Notwithstanding any other provision of the TOU, Provider retains the right to seek the remedy of specific performance of any term contained in the TOU, or a preliminary or permanent injunction against the breach of any such term or in aid of the exercise of any power granted in the TOU, or any combination thereof.
