Company's trademarks and trade dress may not be used, including as part of trademarks and/or as part of domain names, in connection with any product or service in any manner that is likely to cause confusion and may not be copied, imitated, or used, in whole or in part, without the prior written permission of the Company.
You understand that the Service and the Site are available for your personal and internal business use only. You represent, warrant and agree that no materials of any kind submitted through your account or otherwise posted, transmitted, or shared by you on or through the Service will violate or infringe upon the rights of any third party, including copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity or other personal or proprietary rights; or contain libelous, defamatory or otherwise unlawful material.
In addition, you agree not to use the Service or the Site to:
You are solely responsible for the profiles, messages, videos, images, notes, text, information, and other content that you upload, publish or display (hereinafter, "post") on or through the Service or the Site, or transmit to or share with other users (collectively the "User Content"). For example, if you post any video footage containing images of students, you must have obtained their parents’ written permission. If you are using BloomBoard on behalf of an educational agency or institution and FERPA applies, before you enter, upload or access any educational records of a minor student, or share such information with other users in Rooms, you must confirm that your agency or institution has (1) obtained appropriate consent from the parent or guardian of that student or (2) determined that one of the limited exceptions to the consent requirement applies. You can find more information on FERPA and related guidance here, and a summary of the limited exceptions here.
You may not post, transmit, or share User Content on the Site or Service that you did not create or that you do not have permission to post. You understand and agree that the Company may, but is not obligated to, review the Site and may delete or remove (without notice) any Site Content or User Content in its sole discretion, for any reason or no reason, including without limitation User Content that in the sole judgment of the Company violates this Agreement, or which might be offensive, illegal, or that might violate the rights, harm, or threaten the safety of users or others. You understand and agree that you may be exposed to User Content that is inaccurate, objectionable, inappropriate for children, or otherwise unsuited to your purpose, and you agree that the Company will not be liable for any damages you allege to incur as a result of User Content. You are solely responsible at your sole cost and expense for creating backup copies and replacing any User Content you post or store on the Site or provide to the Company.
We operate the Service in compliance with 17 U.S.C. §512 and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). It is our policy to respond to any infringement notices and take appropriate actions under the DMCA and other applicable intellectual property laws. It is our policy to promptly process and investigate notices of alleged copyright infringement, and take appropriate actions under the DMCA. The DMCA requires that all notices of alleged copyright infringement must be in writing. When informing the designated agent of an alleged copyright infringement, the complainant must do the following:
(a) Identify the copyrighted work that allegedly has been infringed. If multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are involved, please provide a list of the works on that site;
(b) Describe the material that is claimed to be infringing and provide sufficient information to permit us to locate that material;
(c) Provide your contact information, including an address, telephone number, and, if available, an email address;
(d) Certify or include a statement that the complainant has a good faith belief that the use of the copyright-protected material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, the owner's agent, or law;
(e) Certify that the information that you have provided to us is accurate. The complainant should attest under penalty of perjury that the complainant is authorized to enforce the copyrights that have allegedly have been infringed; and
(f) Include a physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or person authorized to act on behalf of the owner.
Before the complainant alleges an infringement, complainant should consult copyright materials to confirm that the use is, in fact, infringing. The United States Copyright Office provides basic information, online, at http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ01.pdf, which can assist one in determining whether an exception or defense, such as fair use, may apply to the use of your copyrighted work.
We expect all of the Users of our Service to comply with applicable copyright laws. However, if we are notified of a claimed copyright infringement, or otherwise become aware of facts and circumstances from which infringement is apparent, we will respond appropriately, which may include removing or disabling access to the material that is claimed to be infringing. We will follow the procedures outlined in the DMCA with regard to appropriate notifications of the User and the complaining party, acceptance of counter notifications, and, where indicated, "putback" of the alleged infringing material. Refer to the United States Copyright Office for the provisions of the DMCA at http://www.loc.gov/copyright/legislation/dmca.pdf.
Where it has been clearly established that a User is a repeat offender, we may, in our sole discretion, terminate that User’s account. Pursuant to the DMCA, we have designated an agent to receive notification of alleged copyright infringement occurring on web pages or computer servers. If you believe that your copyrighted work is being infringed on the Service, please notify our designated agent at: 227 Forest Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94031.
