SnipRSS - Terms of Service

Terms of Service

The following terms and conditions govern all use of the SnipRSS.com website and browser extensions and all content, supplementary services and products available at or through the website (collectively, the “Service”). The Service is owned and operated by Red Robot Studios Ltd. (“RRS”).

The Service is offered subject to User acceptance without modification of all of the terms and conditions contained herein and all other operating rules, policies (including, without limitation, the SnipRSS Privacy Policy) and procedures that may be published from time to time on this Service by RRS (collectively, the “Agreement”).

Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using the Service.

By accessing, registering or using any part of the website, the User agrees to become bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If the User does not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then the Service should not be accessed. If these terms and conditions are considered an offer by RRS, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms.

For eligibility to use SnipRSS.com, the User must:

  • be at least eighteen (18) years old and legally able to enter into contracts;
  • complete the registration process;
  • agree to these Terms of Service; and
  • provide true, complete, and up to date contact information.

By using the Service, the User represents and warrant to meet all the requirements listed above, and the User agrees not to use the Service in a way that violates any laws or regulations in the Isle of Man or respective jurisdiction (representing and warranting is akin to making a legally enforceable promise.) RRS may refuse service, close accounts of any users, and change eligibility requirements at any time without prior agreement or notice.

User Account and RSS feeds

If a User creates an account via the Service, they are responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the feeds created. The User must immediately notify RRS of any unauthorized uses of the account or any other breaches of security. RRS will not be liable for any acts or omissions by the User, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.

Responsibility

If a User creates an RSS feed on the Service, post links on the Service, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available by means of the Service (any such material, “Content”), the User is entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content. That is the case regardless of whether the Content in question constitutes text or graphics. By making Content available, the User represents and warrants that:

  • the downloading, copying and use of the Content will not infringe the proprietary rights, including but not limited to the copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret rights, of any third party;
  • if your employer has rights to intellectual property created on the account, the User has either; (i) received permission from the employer to post or make available the Content, including but not limited to any software, or (ii) secured from the employer a written waiver as to all rights in or to the Content;
  • the User has fully complied with any third-party licenses relating to the Content, and has done all things necessary to successfully pass through to end users any required terms;
  • the Content does not contain or install any viruses, worms, malware, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content. This list is not exhaustive in relation to current or new types of cyber-crime;
  • the Content is not spam, is not machine- or randomly-generated, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);
  • the Content is not pornographic, does not contain threats or incite violence, and does not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party;
  • the User’s feeds are not advertised via unwanted electronic messages such as spam links on newsgroups, email lists, other blogs and websites, and similar unsolicited promotional methods;
  • the User’s feeds are not named in a manner that misleads readers into thinking that the User is another person or company. For example, the User’s RSS feed name is not the name of a person other than the individual or self/part owned company; and
  • the User has, in the case of Content that includes computer code, accurately categorized and/or described the type, nature, uses and effects of the materials, whether requested to do so by RRS or otherwise.

By submitting Content to the Service for inclusion on the feed, the User grants RRS a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying and distributing the respective RSS feed. If the User deletes Content, RRS will use all reasonable efforts to remove it from the Service, but the User acknowledges that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, RRS has the right (though not the obligation) to, in RRS’s sole discretion (i) refuse or remove any content that, in RRS’s reasonable opinion, violates any RRS policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the Service to any individual or entity for any reason, in RRS’s sole discretion. RRS will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.

Account and Password

The User is responsible for keeping the account name and password confidential. The User is also responsible for any account that they have access to, whether or not they authorized the use. The User agrees to immediately notify RSS of any unauthorized use of the accounts. RSS is not responsible for any losses due to stolen, hacked or compromised passwords. RSS does not have access to User passwords, and for security reasons, RSS may only reset passwords.

Intellectual Property

This Agreement does not transfer from RRS to the User any RRS or third party intellectual property, and all right, title and interest in and to such property will remain (as between the parties) solely with RRS. RRS, the SnipRSS.com logo, and all other trademarks, service marks, graphics and logos used in connection with SnipRSS.com, or the Service are trademarks or registered trademarks of RRS or RRS’s licensors. Other trademarks, service marks, graphics and logos used in connection with the Service may be the trademarks of other third parties. The User’s use of the Service grants no right or license to reproduce or otherwise use, imitate, or copy any RRS or third-party trademarks. The User should not act in any manner which could cause negative or reputational damage to RSS or affiliates via use of any form of public or social media.

Attribution

RRS reserves the right to display attribution links such as ‘Powered by SnipRSS.com’ and theme author attribution in the User’s RSS feed.

Changes

RRS reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace any part of this Agreement. It is the User’s responsibility to check this Agreement periodically for changes. The User’s continued use of or access to the Service following the posting of any changes to this Agreement constitutes acceptance of those changes. RRS may also, in the future, offer new services and/or features through the Service (including, the release of new tools and resources). Such new features and/or services shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

Credit Cards

As long as the User is a Member or has an outstanding balance with RSS, the User will provide a valid credit card information and authorize RSS to deduct the annual charges against that credit card. The user agrees to replace the information for any expired credit card with information for a valid one. Anyone using a credit card represents and warrants that they are authorized to use that credit card, and that any and all charges may be billed to that credit card and won’t be rejected. If RSS is unable to process a credit card order, the User will be contacted by email and the account will be suspended until the payment can be processed.

Billing Changes

RSS may change its fees at any time by posting a new pricing structure to the Service and/or sending a notification by email.

Termination

RRS may terminate User access to all or any part of the Service at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. If the User wishes to terminate this Agreement or the SnipRSS.com account (if held), the User may simply discontinue using the Service. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability. RRS will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.

Disclaimer of Warranties

The Service is provided “as is”. RRS and its suppliers and licensors hereby disclaim all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. Neither RRS nor its suppliers and licensors, makes any warranty that the Service will be error free or that access thereto will be continuous or uninterrupted. You understand that you download from, or otherwise obtain content or services through, the Service at your own discretion and risk.

Limitation of Liability

In no event will RRS, or its suppliers or licensors, be liable with respect to any subject matter of this agreement under any contract, negligence, strict liability or other legal or equitable theory for: (i) any special, incidental or consequential damages; (ii) the cost of procurement for substitute products or services; (iii) for interruption of use or loss or corruption of data; or (iv) for any amounts that exceed the fees paid by you to RRS under this agreement during the twelve (12) month period prior to the cause of action. RRS shall have no liability for any failure or delay due to matters beyond their reasonable control. The foregoing shall not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law. RSS is hereby indemnified against any claims in the event of negligence, receipt of incorrect information, punitive damages or costs incurred by the User. This list is not exhaustive. The Client shall not cause RSS to be liable for any loss, costs, expenses or other claim for compensation arising from any information or service provided by RSS.

General Representation and Warranty

The User represents and warrants that (i) use of the Service will be in strict accordance with the Service Privacy Policy, with this Terms of Service and with all applicable laws and regulations (including without limitation any local laws or regulations in your country, state, city, or other governmental area, regarding online conduct and acceptable content, and including all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the Isle of Man or the country in which the User resides) and (ii) use of the Service will not infringe or misappropriate the intellectual property rights of any third party.

Indemnification

The User agrees to indemnify and hold harmless RRS, its contractors, and its licensors, and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents from and against any and all claims and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, arising out of use of the Service, including but not limited to User violation of this Agreement.

Miscellaneous

If there is any dispute between the User and RRS about or involving this Agreement, the Site or the Services, the User hereby agrees that the dispute shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Isle of Man, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. The User hereby agrees to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in Isle of Man with respect to any claim, proceeding or action relating to or otherwise arising out of this Agreement, the Site or the Services, howsoever arising, provided always that RRS may seek and obtain injunctive relief in any jurisdiction.

If any portion of this Agreement is deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, this Agreement as a whole shall not be deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable, but only that portion of this Agreement that is unlawful, void or unenforceable shall be stricken from this Agreement.

The User agrees that this Agreement is specifically enforceable by injunctive relief and other equitable remedies without proof of monetary damages.

The User agree that if RRS does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Agreement (or which RRS has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of RRS’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to RRS.
