You understand and agree that through your use of the Service you consent to the collection and use of your information in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

17. Releases

"Releasees" shall include both Spiri and its affiliates, and the officers, trustees, agents and employees of Spiri or its affiliates. You agree not to hold the Releasees liable for the Content, actions, or inactions of other users. As a condition of access to the Service, you release the Releasees from claims, demands, losses, liabilities and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with any dispute you have or claim to have with other users, including whether or not Spiri becomes involved in any resolution or attempted resolution of the dispute. 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." If you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine. You agree and understand that Spiri does not control and is not responsible for information you provide to parties other than Spiri. You will not hold the Releasees responsible for any injury damage that you might incur in connection with the Service, even if the negligence of any of the Releasees caused or contributed to such injury or damages. You will not sue or seek damages from any of the Releasees in any form, and you hereby waive and release any and all claims against each of the Releasees for any injury or damage arising in any way out of your participation in the Service, even if the negligence of any of the Releasees caused or contributed to such injury or damages and you agree to indemnify, defend and hold each Releasee harmless from any such claims. You recognize that this release means you are giving up, among other things, rights to sue the Releasees for injuries, damages or losses you may incur.

18. Disclaimer of Warranties


Spiri does not ensure continuous, uninterrupted, error-free, secure or virus-free operation of the Service, the Spiri Software, the Servers or your Account, and you understand that you shall not be entitled to refunds or other compensation based on our failure to provide any of the foregoing other than as explicitly provided in this Agreement. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties, and to that extent, the foregoing disclaimer may not apply to you. You acknowledge that Spiri does not make and does expressly disclaim any representations or warranties about the other users or the safety of participating in the Service. You agree that notwithstanding the fact that Spiri may moderate a forum or discussion, Spiri has no responsibility to correct any mistakes or errors in any Content contributed to the forum or discussion, and that fact that Spiri allows Content to remain displayed in the forum or discussion does not constitute approval or endorsement of the Content.

19. Limitation of Liability


Some jurisdictions do not allow the foregoing limitations of liability, so to the extent that any such limitation is found to be impermissible, such limitation may not apply to you.

20. Indemnification

At our request, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Spiri, its officers, trustees, employees, subsidiaries, and agents from all damages, liabilities, claims and expenses, including without limitation attorneys' fees and costs, arising from: (i) any breach or alleged breach by you of this Agreement, including without limitation your representations and warranties relating to your Content; or (ii) your acts, omissions or use of the Service, including without limitation your negligent, willful or illegal conduct, including but not limited to any acts requiring Spiri to incur costs in connection with governmental investigations, audits, or security or other remediation efforts or other measures.

21. Legal Relationship Between You and Us

You acknowledge that your participation in the Service, including your creation or uploading of Content in the Service, does not make you a Spiri employee and that you do not expect to be, and will not be, compensated by Spiri for such activities, and you will make no claim inconsistent with these acknowledgements.

In such event, Spiri shall have no further obligation or liability to you under this Agreement or otherwise, and you shall be entitled to no compensation or other payment, remedy, recourse or refund. Spiri may suspend or terminate your Account if you violate this Agreement. Upon termination of your Account in the event of such breach, this Agreement between us will be automatically terminated and you may not re-subscribe to the Service through any other Account that you may establish. We may suspend or terminate your Account if we determine in our discretion that such action is necessary or advisable to comply with legal requirements or protect the rights or interests of Spiri or any third party. If Spiri elects to generally suspend or discontinue the Service, in whole or in part, for any reason, Spiri may suspend or terminate your Account. In such event, you will not be entitled to compensation for such suspension or termination, and you acknowledge Spiri will have no liability to you in connection with such suspension or termination.

23. Loss of Content and Account Upon termination of Account

Upon termination of your Account, you will no longer be able to access your Account or access (or transfer or direct the transfer to any other Account) any Content or data you have stored on the Servers. All licenses granted by Spiri to use the Service will automatically terminate. You acknowledge that you have elected to use the Service notwithstanding the possibility of termination of such license rights under the circumstances set forth in this Agreement. You should ensure that you have only stored Content on the Servers to which you are willing to permanently lose access. You acknowledge and assume the risk of the possibility of suspension or termination of your Account as provided herein, and you represent that you will make your decisions to participate in the Service and contribute Content at all times knowingly based upon these risks. You will have the technical ability to delete Content from your Account prior to its termination, but Spiri is not responsible for any liability arising from any deletion of Content on your part that is prohibited by law or contrary to the terms of a validly issued Court order or subpoena requiring preservation of such Content. While Spiri may retain or store Content for an indeterminate period of time after termination of your Account, Spiri is under no obligation to do so. Spiri also reserves the right to prevent deletion of Content when required to do so by law or the terms of a validly issued Court order or subpoena requiring preservation of such Content.

This Agreement and the DMCA and Privacy policies referenced in this Agreement sets forth the entire agreement and understanding between you and Spiri with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous agreements or understandings. This Agreement may not be modified except as provided in Section 1 or by mutual written agreement between you and Spiri that is signed by hand (not electronically) by duly authorized representatives of both parties and expressly references amendment of this Agreement. You acknowledge that no other written, oral or electronic communications will serve to modify or supplement this Agreement, and you agree not to make any claims inconsistent with this understanding or in reliance on communications not part of this Agreement. The section headings used herein, including descriptive summary sentences at the start of each section, are for convenience only and shall not affect the interpretation of this Agreement.
