Buzz360 Master Terms and Conditions of Service

Welcome to the products and services ("Services") provided by Buzz360, LLC, located at 16782 Embers Ave. Farmington, MN 55042 ("we", "us", "our" or "Buzz360").  By using our Services, you are agreeing to the terms below. Please read them carefully and if you have any questions contact us at terms@buzz360.c

Structure of Our Terms and Conditions

These Master Terms of Service (the "Master Terms") contain the terms and conditions that apply to all of our Services. In addition to these Master Terms, each of our individual Services may be subject to additional terms and conditions that are specific to those Services only ("Additional Terms"). When you use these individual Services, the applicable Additional Terms will apply to you, and will automatically be incorporated into these Master Terms by reference ("Terms" means these Master Terms, along with any applicable Additional Terms). 

Changes to Services and Terms

Buzz360 regularly updates and improves the Services, and may at times remove features in order to improve your ability to use the Services. Because we are constantly trying to improve our Services, these Terms may also need to change. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we do, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice on the Services, and/or by sending you an email and/or by some other means.

If you don't agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Services. If you use the Services in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes.

Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by both you and us.

Privacy

Buzz360 takes the privacy of its users very seriously. For more information, please refer to the Additional Terms contained in our current Privacy Policy.

Please note that we do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from children under 13; if you are a child under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn we have collected personal information from a child under 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at privacy@buzz360.co

Basics of Using the Services

In order to use certain of our Services, you may be required to sign up for an account, and to select a password and user name ("User ID").  You will provide accurate, complete, true and updated registration information about yourself.  You may not select as your User ID a name that you don't have the right to use, or another person's name with the intent to impersonate that person. You may not transfer your account to anyone else without our prior written permission. You will not share your account or password with anyone, and you must protect the security of your account and your password. You're responsible for any activity associated with your account.

You must follow all applicable laws in your use of the Services, including applicable Campaign, Campaign finance, export and re-export control laws and regulations. If your use of the Services is prohibited by applicable laws, then you aren't authorized to use the Services. We can't and won't be responsible for your using the Services in a way that breaks the law. The Services are provided by a U.S. company. We may suspend or terminate services if you do not follow our Terms, and customers removed by Buzz360 may not be allowed any future access to the Services.

The materials displayed or performed or available on or through the Services, including, but not limited to, text, graphics, data, articles, photos, images, illustrations, and so forth (all of the foregoing, the "Services Content") are protected by copyright and/or other intellectual property laws. You will abide by all copyright notices, trademark rules, information, and restrictions contained in any Services Content that you access through the Services, and you won't use, copy, reproduce, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, upload, display, license, sell or otherwise exploit for any purpose any Services Content not owned by you, (i) without the prior consent of the owner of that Services Content or (ii) in a way that violates someone else's (including Buzz360's) rights.

You understand that Buzz360 owns the Services. You won't modify, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale of, reproduce (except as expressly provided in the Terms), creative derivative works based on, or otherwise exploit any of the Services. The Services may allow you to copy or download certain Services Content; please remember that just because this functionality exists, doesn't mean that all the restrictions above don't apply – they do!

You understand that any data you enter or upload into the service becomes property of Buzz360 and may be used to improving the service for all users.  You expressly authorize Buzz360 to enhance, process and use the data and derive certain conclusions enhance the service for you and all other users.   

These Terms grant you a non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable, freely revocable license to use the Services, subject to your compliance with all of the Terms. Buzz360 may terminate this license at any time for violation of our terms and policies.

Termination of Services

Unless you have a separate agreement with Buzz360 specifying otherwise, the TeamUpWith subscriptions to our basic service is for a minimum of 12 months.  Subscriptions renew automatically for 12 months terms unless they were terminated in writing no less than 60 days prior to the end of the term. The SwipeRed subscription is based on your subscription plan.

Buzz360 is free to terminate (or suspend access to) your use of the Services or your account, for any reason in our discretion, including your breach of these Terms, non timely payment, etc.  Buzz360 has the sole right to decide whether you are in violation of any of the restrictions set forth in these Terms. Termination or interruption of any of the services are explicitly accepted as remedies under the agreement. (This means, we may shut your website and/or any other service down if you are late with payments for any of our services.)  

Provisions that, by their nature, should survive termination of these Terms shall survive termination. By way of example, all of the following will survive termination: any obligation you have to pay us or indemnify us, any limitations on our liability, any warranty disclaimers, any terms regarding ownership or intellectual property rights, and terms regarding disputes between us.

Acceptable Use Policy

In addition to the general restrictions contained above, your use of our Services is subject to our then-current Acceptable Use Policy, which is a part of the Master Terms.

Responsibility for Content

Content and information displayed on the Services is the sole responsibility of the person or organization providing that content, and you access all such content and information at your sole risk. We aren’t liable for any errors or omissions in that content or information, or for any damages or loss you might suffer in connection with it. We do not review content posted on the Services, and any issues with that content should be directed to its owners. You are solely responsible for interactions with other users of the Services.

The Services may contain links or connections to third party websites or services that are not owned or controlled by Buzz360. When you access third party websites or use third party services, you accept that there are risks in doing so, and that Buzz360 is not responsible for such risks. We encourage you to be aware when you leave the Services and to read the terms and conditions and privacy policy of each third party website or service that you visit or utilize. Buzz360 has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, accuracy, privacy policies, or practices of or opinions expressed in any third party websites or by any third party that you interact with through the Services. By using the Services, you release and hold us harmless from any and all liability arising from your use of any third party website or service.

If there is a dispute between participants on this site, or between users and any third party, you agree that we are under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users, you release Buzz360, its officers, employees, agents, and successors from claims, demands, and damages of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and/or our Services. If you are a California resident, you shall and hereby do 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."

Organizational Users

If you're using any of our Services on behalf of an organization or entity, you affirm that you have the right to act on behalf of that organization or entity, and that these Terms apply to the organization or entity (and all references to "you" and similar terms refer to that organization or entity). The organization or entity will hold harmless and indemnify Buzz360 (and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees) from any claim, suit or action arising from or related to the use of the Services or violation of these terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys' fees. 

Currency

Certain aspects of the Services may allow you to obtain reputational or status indicators, and/or fictional property representing virtual achievements, for instance, political capital ("Currency"). You have a limited license to this Currency and it is not redeemable for any value from Buzz360. We have the right to change or eliminate Currency at any time without liability. 

Disclaimer

We work hard to provide high-performance services and will work with you to provide an excellent customer experience, but there are certain things we don't promise.

Other than as expressly set out in these Terms or Additional Terms, neither Buzz360 nor its partners, suppliers or API application providers make any specific promises about the Services. We don't make any commitments about the content within the Services, the specific function of the Services, or their reliability, legality, availability, or ability to meet your needs. We provide the Services "AS IS" and you use them at your own risk.  To the extent permitted by law, we disclaim all warranties, express or implied, including, without limitation the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purposes, and non-infringement. 

Limitation of Liability

To the fullest extent permitted by law, Buzz360 and Buzz360's partners, suppliers and API application providers will not be responsible (under any legal or equitable theory) for: (1) lost profits, revenues, or data, financial losses, or indirect, special, consequential, exemplary or punitive damages; or (2) any amounts (in the aggregate) in excess of the amount you paid us to use the Services, or (3) any loss or damage that is not reasonably foreseeable or that is outside of their reasonable control.

You explicitly agree that the value of any claim you may bring against Buzz360 will be limited to the amount of subscription payments made during the 12 month prior to the claim. 

Copyright Dispute (DMCA)

We respect others' intellectual property rights, and we reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing, and to terminate the accounts of repeat alleged infringers. To report potentially infringing content, contact us at terms@buzz360.co.

Other Terms

We have the rights to enforce these Terms even if we don't do so right away. You cannot reassign the duty to abide by these Terms or your rights hereunder, but Buzz360 may reassign these Terms in order to continue to provide the Services.

The Terms are governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Minnesota, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. Any claim or dispute between you and Buzz360 that arises in whole or in part from the Services shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Hastings, Minnesota, unless submitted to arbitration as set forth in the following paragraph.

Buzz360 may provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business related purposes, to you via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through posting of such notice on the Services, as determined by us. We are not responsible for any automatic filtering you or your network provider may apply to email notifications we send to the email address you provide us. We recommend that you add terms@buzz360.co and Info@buzz360.co to your email address book to help ensure you receive email notifications from us.

The Terms, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Buzz360 in connection with our Services, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Buzz360 concerning the Services. You may be subject to additional third-party terms and policies based on your use of the Services. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect.

No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of these Terms and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind Buzz360 in any respect whatsoever. You and Buzz360 agree there are no third party beneficiaries intended under these Terms.

No waiver of any provision of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Buzz360's failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

Changes to This Policy

We're constantly trying to improve our Services, so we may need to change this Acceptable Use Policy from time to time as well, but we will alert you to changes by placing a notice on the Services, by sending you an email, and/or by some other means. Please note that if you've opted not to receive legal notice emails from us (or you haven't provided us with your email address), those legal notices will still govern your use of the Services, and you are still responsible for reading and understanding them. If you use the Services after any changes to the Master Terms of Service or changes to any other terms and conditions have been posted, means you agree to all of the changes.

 Addendum to Master Terms and Conditions of Service:

Buzz360 Privacy Policy

We at Buzz360 care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously.

By using or accessing the Services in any manner, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you hereby consent that we will collect, use, and share your information in the following ways. Remember that your use of Buzz360's Services is at all times subject to our Master Terms of Service located at www.buzz360.co/terms (the “Master Terms”), which incorporate these Additional Terms. Any terms we use in these Additional Terms without defining them have the definitions given to them in the Master Terms.

What does this Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") that we gather when you are accessing or using our Services, but not to the practices of companies we don't own or control, or people that we don't manage. We gather various types of Personal Information from your and other parties who's information you provide. We use this Personal Information internally in connection with our Services, including to personalize and improve our services, to allow you to set up a user account and profile, to contact you and allow other users to contact you, to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to provide and improve the Services, and to analyze how you use the Services. In certain cases, we may also share some Personal Information with third parties, but only as described below.

Please note that some of our Services may allow you to provide us with Personal Information regarding your own users, visitors, supporters or voters ("Third Party Personal Information"). This Privacy Policy deals with our use of your own Personal Information, and not Third Party Personal Information that you may provide to us in connection with the Services.

We are not responsible for the practices of sites linked to or from the Services, or for the privacy practices of our other customers on the Services, and before interacting with any of these sites you are advised to review their rules and policies before providing them with any private information.

As noted in the Master Terms, we do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for our Services. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on the Services. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. Please reach us at privacy@buzz360.co with any concerns.

 Will Buzz360 ever change this Privacy Policy? 

We're constantly working to improve our Services, so we may need to change this Privacy Policy from time to time as well, but we will alert you to changes by placing a notice on the Services, by sending you an email, and/or by some other means. Please note that if you've opted not to receive legal notice emails from us (or you haven't provided us with your email address), those legal notices will still govern your use of the Services, and you are still responsible for reading and understanding them. If you use the Services after any changes to the Privacy Policy have been posted, that means you agree to all of the changes.

Information We Collect 

When you sign up for the Services, you provide us with information such as your name, phone number and email address. We may also collect information from your public social media accounts.

When you use the Services, we may send cookies - small text files containing alphanumeric characters - to your computer to identify your browser and help enhance your experience with the Services. You can set your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Some features of the Services may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled. We may use tiny images known as clear GIFs to track behavior of users, including statistics on who opens our emails.

Our servers automatically record certain log file information reported from your browser when you access the Services. These server logs may include information such as which pages of the Service you visited, your internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, and other information on how you interact with the Services.

Buzz360 uses Google Analytics to help us understand use of our Services.

Financial information connected to payments may be collected or stored by a third-party payment processor and is subject to their terms and policies.

How We Use Your Information 

We use the personal information you submit to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service. Buzz360 may use certain information about you internally for purposes such as analyzing how the Service is used, diagnosing service or technical problems, maintaining security, and personalizing content.

By providing Buzz360 your email address (including by "following," "liking," linking your account to the Buzz360 service, etc., on a third party website or network), you consent to our using the email address to send you Service-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. You also agree that we may send you notifications of activity on the Service to the email address you give us, in accordance with any applicable privacy settings. We may use your email address to send you other messages, such as newsletters, changes to features of the Service, or special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may unsubscribe using the link in the emails.  Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, or offers. You may not opt out of Service-related e-mails.

Following termination or deactivation of your account, Buzz360 may retain your profile information and all information posted to the Service.

We use cookies, clear gifs, and log file information to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the site; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor the effectiveness of our Service; (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns; (e) diagnose or fix technology problems reported by our users or engineers that are associated with certain IP addresses; (f) help you efficiently access your information after you sign in; and (h) track user Content and users to the extent necessary to comply as a service provider with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

How We Share Your Information 

Personally Identifiable Information: Buzz360 will never rent or sell your personally identifiable information to others. Buzz360 may share your personally identifiable information with third parties for the purpose of providing the Service to you. If we do this, such third parties' use of your information will be bound by this Privacy Policy. We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of Buzz360 (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers). As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer or assign such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or dissolution.

Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Service becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy or website customization settings. If you remove information that you posted to the Service, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service, or if other users have copied or saved that information.

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, Buzz360 will not disclose personal information to any third party unless required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the law, comply with legal process served on us or our affiliates, or investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities; (b) to enforce our Terms of Service, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, or to protect the security or integrity of our site; and (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Buzz360, our users or others.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information: We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain Buzz360 services.

The nature of the Buzz360 services necessitates to publish data received from subscribers and to share this data with third parties.  You authorize Buzz360 to use the data you provided as Buzz360 sees necessary. Buzz360 cannot and will not be held liable for any use, abuse, misuse or violations of privacy or copyrights of any data entered into the system; we also can not guarantee that data will not be used in a way the subscriber may object to.

Security 

Your account is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You must prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer or device and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.

We endeavor to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Information we hold in our records, but we cannot guarantee complete security.  However, we do agree to continuously review, adopt, and utilize commercially reasonable standards with respect to any software, hardware, or processes we use on your (and our own) behalf to support privacy and security efforts and expectations.  Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.
