Lynx: Terms of Service Agreement
Last Updated: April 1, 2015
Welcome to Lynx, which is operated by Stream Labs Inc. ("Stream", "we", "us" or "our"). Please read these Terms of Service (this "Agreement") carefully, as it constitutes legally binding terms and conditions and applies to your use of (a) our website, application and technology (the "Lynx Application") and (b) any content, information, features, functionality and services offered by us through the Lynx Application (collectively, and together with the Lynx Application, the "Services"). This Agreement applies whether you are accessing the Services via a wireless or mobile device, a personal computer or any other technology or device (each, a "Device"). This Agreement does not cover other services, websites or any corresponding content, features, and activities made available by any other company or third party, unless specifically stated.
1. Services. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, the Services shall enable registered users of the Lynx Application to "clip out" a part of the screen when visiting any website and then share that "clip" through various third-party owned and operated platforms (e.g., various social media networks) and/or store the clip within the Lynx Application.
2. Modifications. We may modify this Agreement from time to time and at any time in our sole discretion. We will post or display notices of material changes on the Services and/or notify you via other electronic means. The form of such notice is at our discretion. Once we post or make them available on the Services, these changes become effective immediately and if you use the Services after they become effective it will signify your agreement to be bound by the changes. We recommend that you check back frequently and review this Agreement regularly so you are aware of the most current rights and obligations that apply to you.
3. User Registration. In order to access and use part of the Services, we require that you register to use the Lynx Application and have a unique username and password combination ("User Credentials") and provide certain additional information, which may include, without limitation, your email address, legal name, date of birth, country of residence, zip code, your physical address, telephone number(s), applicable payment data and related information (collectively, a "User Account"). You represent and warrant that all registration and account information you submit is truthful and accurate and you shall maintain and promptly update the accuracy of such information. Further, if you elect to become a registered user of the Services, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your User Credentials, and you shall be responsible and liable for any access to or use of the Services by you or any person or entity using your User Credentials, whether or not such access or use has been authorized by you or on your behalf, and whether or not such person or entity is your employee or agent. You agree to immediately notify Stream of any unauthorized use of your User Credentials or User Account, or any other breach of security. It is your sole responsibility to (a) control the dissemination and use of your User Credentials and User Account, (b) update, maintain and control access to your User Credentials and User Account, and (c) cancel your User Account on the Services. We reserve the right to deny access, use and registration privileges to any user of the Services for any reason, including, without limitation, if we believe there is a question about the identity of the person trying to access any account or element of the Services. Stream shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Article 5.
4. User Materials.
4.1 General. The Services will provide you with the opportunity to submit, upload, transmit, display or otherwise make available text, photos, graphics, images, audio/visual content, trademarks, logos, materials and information via the Services (collectively, "User Materials"). By submitting User Materials, you acknowledge and agree that the term "User Material" also includes, without limitation, and refers to all of the information you submit or we may receive that is related to your User Material.
4.2 DISCLAIMERS. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE SOLELY AND ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONSEQUENCES OF ALL USER MATERIALS THAT YOU SUBMIT, UPLOAD, DISPLAY, TRANSMIT OR OTHERWISE MAKE AVAILABLE. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL Stream BE LIABLE IN ANY WAY FOR USER MATERIALS, OR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRED AS A RESULT OF ANY USER MATERIALS SUBMITTED, UPLOADED, DISPLAYED, TRANSMITTED OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, FOR CLAIMS OF INFRINGEMENT OR MISAPPROPRIATION RELATED TO OR ARISING FROM ANY SUCH USER MATERIALS). YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT USER MATERIALS may be viewable by others and that you have the ability to control who can access such content by adjusting your privacy settings. FURTHER, USER MATERIALS DO NOT REFLECT THE VIEWS OF Stream OR ITS AFFILIATES, AND YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU MAY BE EXPOSED TO OTHER PEOPLE'S USER MATERIALS THAT COULD BE OFFENSIVE, INDECENT OR OBJECTIONABLE.
4.3 Retention of Rights. Stream DOES NOT ACQUIRE ANY TITLE OR OWNERSHIP RIGHTS IN THE USER MATERIALS THAT YOU SUBMIT AND/OR MAKE AVAILABLE VIA SERVICES. After you submit, upload, transmit, display or otherwise make available any User Material, you continue to retain any such rights that you may have in such User Material, subject to the rights, licenses and privileges granted herein.
4.4 License Grant. In connection with all User Materials you submit, upload, transmit, display or otherwise make available on, through or in connection with the Services, you grant to Stream, to the full extent that you have rights to such User Materials, a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, sublicensable, fully paid-up and royalty-free right and license to host, cache, store, maintain, use, reproduce, distribute, display, exhibit, perform, publish, broadcast, transmit, modify, prepare derivative works of, adapt, reformat, translate, promote and otherwise exploit all or any portion of your User Material for purposes of and in connection with (a) the provision of the Services and (b) displaying, exhibiting, marketing and featuring same in connection with the promotion of Stream, the Services and any other Stream products and services (in each instance, without notification or other obligation to you or any third party).
4.5 Unauthorized User Material. You may not submit, upload, transmit, display or otherwise make available, in any manner, any User Material that we deem to be Unauthorized User Material (as defined herein). We have the right, but not the obligation, to review any User Material and to delete, remove, move, edit or reject, without notice to you, for any reason or for no reason whatsoever, any User Materials, including, without limitation, any Unauthorized User Materials; provided, however, that Stream shall have no obligation or liability to you or any third party for failure to do so or for doing so in any particular manner. As used herein, the term "Unauthorized User Material" means any User Material that (a) is or may be construed as violating this Agreement, (b) is deemed to be unacceptable to Stream, as determined in Stream's sole discretion, or (c) violates the terms of Article 5.
