NEWSBOUND reserves the right to change or amend these Terms at any time without notice. It is your responsibility to check these Terms periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of any changes to these Terms of Service constitutes acceptance of those changes.
NEWSBOUND operates the Site to provide certain services (“Services”). These Services include access to information and content regarding Newsbound, and the products, services and opportunities we provide. “Content” means all the information and data available on the Site.
The Services and Content provided are meant to inform the public about Newsbound and the products, services and opportunities we provide, and are intended for private, individual and non-commercial uses only.
The Site may include links to other websites, services or resources on the Internet, and other websites, services or resources may contain links to the Site, such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+. When you access third party websites, you do so at your own risk. These other websites are not under NEWSBOUND’s control, and you acknowledge that NEWSBOUND is not responsible or liable for the content, functions, accuracy, legality, appropriateness or any other aspect of such websites or resources. The inclusion of any such link does not imply endorsement by NEWSBOUND or any association with its operators. You further acknowledge and agree that NEWSBOUND shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use of or reliance on any such Content, goods or services available on or through any such website or resource.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEWSBOUND SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUES, WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, USE, GOOD-WILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM (i) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES; (ii) ANY CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES; (iii) ANY CONTENT OBTAINED FROM THE SERVICES; OR (iv) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR CONTENT. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF NEWSBOUND EXCEED THE GREATER OF ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS (U.S. $100.00) OR THE AMOUNT YOU PAID NEWSBOUND, IF ANY, IN THE PAST SIX MONTHS FOR THE SERVICES GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM. THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS SUBSECTION SHALL APPLY TO ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, STATUTE, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT NEWSBOUND HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
NEWSBOUND may take any action with respect to user content that it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if it believes that such user content could create liability for NEWSBOUND, damage NEWSBOUND’s brand or public image or cause NEWSBOUND to lose (in whole or in part) the services of its Internet Service Providers or other suppliers.
We expect that you will use caution and common sense when using NEWSBOUND. Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, NEWSBOUND cannot and does not confirm that each user is who they claim to be. As third party websites are used in features on this site, refer to the policies to these third party websites referenced in “THIRD PARTY SITES AND SERVICES” in these Terms.
If you are a California resident, you agree to 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 or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.
