1. Use of Our Site
The Glodev Site provides a variety of web-based promotional tools, allowing users to quickly and easily design web pages
and widgets in order to connect with supporters, fans, friends, family, and other contacts.
This Site is intended solely for Users who are thirteen (18) years of age or older, and any registration, use or access to the Site by anyone under 18 is strictly prohibited and in violation of this Agreement. If you are under 18 years of age you may use the Site only if you either are an emancipated minor or possess legal parental or guardian consent, and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set forth in this Agreement, and to abide by and comply with this Agreement. You may use the Site only in compliance with this Agreement and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. The Site is not available to any Users previously removed from the Site.
B. Glodev Accounts
Your Glodev account gives you access to the Site and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion. We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users. If you create an account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) “you” includes you and that entity, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement, and that you agree to this Agreement on the entity’s behalf.
By connecting to Glodev with a third-party Site, you give us permission to access and use your information from that Site as permitted by that Site, and to store your log-in credentials for that Site.
You may never use another User’s account without permission. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. You must notify Glodev immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. Glodev will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account.
You may control your User profile and how you interact with the Site by changing the settings in your account settings page. By providing Glodev your email address you consent to our using the email address to send you Site-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. We may also use your email address to send you other messages, such as changes to features of the Site and special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out or change your preferences in your account settings page. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, projects, or events.
C. Site Rules
You agree not to engage in any of the following prohibited activities: (i) copying, distributing, or disclosing any part of the Site in any medium, including without limitation by any automated or non-automated “scraping”; (ii) using any automated system, including without limitation “robots,” “spiders,” “offline readers,” etc., to access the Site in a manner that sends more request messages to the Glodev servers than a human can reasonably produce in the same period of time by using a conventional on-line web browser (except that Glodev grants the operators of public search engines revocable permission to use spiders to copy materials from Glodev.org for the sole purpose of and solely to the extent necessary for creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials); (iii) transmitting spam, chain letters, or other unsolicited email; (iv) attempting to interfere with, compromise the system integrity or security or decipher any transmissions to or from the servers running the Site; (v) taking any action that imposes, or may impose at our sole discretion an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure; (vi) uploading invalid data, viruses, worms, or other software agents through the Site; (vii) collecting or harvesting any personally identifiable information, including account names, from the Site; (viii) using the Site for any commercial solicitation purposes; (ix) impersonating another person or otherwise misrepresenting your affiliation with a person or entity, conducting fraud, hiding or attempting to hide your identity; (x) interfering with the proper working of the Site; (xi) accessing any content on the Site through any technology or means other than those provided or authorized by the Site; or (xii) bypassing the measures we may use to prevent or restrict access to the Site, including without limitation features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content or enforce limitations on use of the Site or the content therein.
We may, without prior notice, change the Site; stop providing the Site or features of the Site, to you or to users generally; or create usage limits for the Site. We may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to the Site without notice and liability for any reason, including if in our sole determination you violate any provision of this Agreement, or for no reason. Upon termination for any reason or no reason, you continue to be bound by this Agreement.
You are solely responsible for your interactions with other Users. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and other Users. Glodev shall have no liability for your interactions with other Users, or for any User’s action or inaction.
2. User Content
Some areas of the Site allow Users to post content such as profile information, comments, questions, and other content or information (any such materials a User submits, posts, displays, or otherwise makes available on the Site “User Content”). You retain ownership of your User Content.
You agree not to post User Content that: (i) may create a risk of harm, loss, physical or mental injury, emotional distress, death, disability, disfigurement, or physical or mental illness to you, to any other person, or to any animal; (ii) may create a risk of any other loss or damage to any person or property; (iii) seeks to harm or exploit children by exposing them to inappropriate content, asking for personally identifiable details or otherwise; (iv) may constitute or contribute to a crime or tort; (v) contains any information or content that we deem to be unlawful, harmful, abusive, racially or ethnically offensive, defamatory, infringing, invasive of personal privacy or publicity rights, harassing, humiliating to other people (publicly or otherwise), libelous, threatening, profane, or otherwise objectionable; (vi) contains any information or content that is illegal (including, without limitation, the disclosure of insider information under securities law or of another party’s trade secrets); (vii) contains any information or content that you do not have a right to make available under any law or under contractual or fiduciary relationships; or (viii) contains any information or content that you know is not correct and current. You agree that any User Content that you post does not and will not violate third-party rights of any kind, including without limitation any Intellectual Property Rights (as defined below) or rights of privacy or publicity. To the extent that your User Content contains music, you hereby represent that you are the owner of all the copyright rights, including without limitation the performance, mechanical, synchronization, and/or master use rights, with respect to each and every musical composition (including lyrics) and sound recording contained in such User Content, and have the power to grant the license granted below. Glodev reserves the right, but is not obligated, to reject and/or remove any User Content that Glodev believes, in its sole discretion, violates these provisions. You understand that publishing your User Content on the Site is not a substitute for registering it with the U.S. Copyright Office, the Writer’s Guild of America, or any other rights organization.
For the purposes of this Agreement, “Intellectual Property Rights” means all patent rights, copyright rights, mask work rights, moral rights, rights of publicity, trademark, trade dress and Site mark rights, goodwill, trade secret rights and other intellectual property rights as may now exist or hereafter come into existence, and all applications therefore and registrations, renewals and extensions thereof, under the laws of any state, country, territory or other jurisdiction.
In connection with your User Content, you affirm, represent and warrant the following:
A. You have the written consent of each and every identifiable natural person in the User Content to use such person’s name or likeness in the manner contemplated by the Site and this Agreement, and each such person has released you from any liability that may arise in relation to such use.
B. Your User Content and Glodev’s use thereof as contemplated by this Agreement and the Site will not violate any law or infringe any rights of any third party, including but not limited to any Intellectual Property Rights and privacy or publicity rights.
C. Glodev may exercise the rights to your User Content granted under this Agreement without liability for payment of any guild fees, residuals, payments, fees, or royalties payable under any collective bargaining agreement or otherwise.
D. To the best of your knowledge, all your User Content and other information that you provide to us is truthful and accurate.
Glodev takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any User Content that you or any other User or third party posts or sends over the Site. You shall be solely responsible for your User Content and the consequences of posting or publishing it, and you agree that we are only acting as a passive conduit for your online distribution and publication of your User Content. 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 Glodev shall not be liable for any damages you allege to incur as a result of User Content.
3. User Content License Grant
By posting any User Content on the Site, you expressly grant, and you represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to grant, to Glodev a royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, list information regarding, edit, translate, distribute, syndicate, publicly perform, publicly display, and make derivative works of all such User Content and your name, voice, and/or likeness as contained in your User Content, in whole or in part, and in any form, media or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, for use in connection with the Site and Glodev’s (and its successors’ and affiliates’) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Site (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels.
If the features of the Site allow you to remove or delete User Content from the Site, the above licenses granted by you in your User Content terminate within a commercially reasonable time after you remove or delete such User Content from the Site. You understand and agree, however, that Glodev may retain, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of User Content that have been removed or deleted. The above licenses granted by you in User Content for which the Site does not provide you a means to delete or remove are perpetual and irrevocable.
4. End User License Grant
A. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you are hereby granted a non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable, freely revocable license to use the Site as permitted by the features of the Site. Glodev reserves all rights not expressly granted herein in the Site and the Glodev Content (as defined below). Glodev may terminate this license at any time for any reason or no reason.
B. Mobile Software. We may make available software to access the Site via a mobile device (“Mobile Software”). To use the Mobile Software you must have a mobile device that is compatible with the Mobile Site. Glodev does not warrant that the Mobile Software will be compatible with your mobile device. Glodev hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to use a compiled code copy of the Mobile Software for one Glodev account on one mobile device owned or leased solely by you. You may not: (i) modify, disassemble, decompile or reverse engineer the Mobile Software, except to the extent that such restriction is expressly prohibited by law; (ii) rent, lease, loan, resell, sublicense, distribute or otherwise transfer the Mobile Software to any third party or use the Mobile Software to provide time sharing or similar Site for any third party; (iii) make any copies of the Mobile Software; (iv) remove, circumvent, disable, damage or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the Mobile Software, features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content accessible through the Mobile Software, or features that enforce limitations on use of the Mobile Software; or (v) delete the copyright and other proprietary rights notices on the Mobile Software. You acknowledge that Glodev may from time to time issue upgraded versions of the Mobile Software, and may automatically electronically upgrade the version of the Mobile Software that you are using on your mobile device. You consent to such automatic upgrading on your mobile device, and agree that the terms and conditions of this Agreement will apply to all such upgrades. Any third-party code that may be incorporated in the Mobile Software is covered by the applicable open source or third-party license EULA, if any, authorizing use of such code. The foregoing license grant is not a sale of the Mobile Software or any copy thereof, and Glodev or its third party partners or suppliers retain all right, title, and interest in the Mobile Software (and any copy thereof). Any attempt by you to transfer any of the rights, duties or obligations hereunder, except as expressly provided for in this Agreement, is void. Glodev reserves all rights not expressly granted under this Agreement. If the Mobile Software is being acquired on behalf of the United States Government, then the following provision applies. Use, duplication, or disclosure of the Mobile Software by the U.S. Government is subject to restrictions set forth in this Agreement and as provided in DFARS 227.7202-1(a) and 227.7202-3(a) (1995), DFARS 252.227-7013(c)(1)(ii) (OCT 1988), FAR 12.212(a) (1995), FAR 52.227-19, or FAR 52.227-14 (ALT III), as applicable.

The Mobile Software may not be exported or re-exported to certain countries or those persons or entities prohibited from receiving exports from the United States. In addition, the Mobile Software may be subject to the import and export laws of other countries. You agree to comply with all United States and foreign laws related to use of the Mobile Software and the Site.
(1) Mobile Software from Online Application Stores. The following applies to any Mobile Software you acquire from any online or mobile application store (for example, iTunes Store, Android Market, BlackBerry App World, etc.) (“App-Sourced Software”): You acknowledge and agree that this Agreement is solely between you and Glodev, not any third-party online application store (“App Stores”), and that App Stores have no responsibility for the App-Sourced Software or content thereof. Your use of the App-Sourced Software must comply with the App Stores’ Terms of Site. You acknowledge that App Stores have no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support Site with respect to the App-Sourced Software. In the event of any failure of the App-Sourced Software to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify the App Stores, and they may refund the purchase price for the App-Sourced Software to you; to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, App Stores will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App-Sourced Software, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be solely governed by this Agreement and any law applicable to Glodev as provider of the software. You acknowledge that the App Stores are not responsible for addressing any claims of you or any third party relating to the App-Sourced Software or your possession and/or use of the App-Sourced Software, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the App-Sourced Software fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation; and all such claims are governed solely by this Agreement and any law applicable to Glodev as provider of the software. You acknowledge that, in the event of any third party claim that the App-Sourced Software or your possession and use of that App-Sourced Software infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, Glodev, not the App Stores, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim to the extent required by this Agreement. You and Glodev acknowledge and agree that the App Stores and their subsidiaries are third party beneficiaries of this Agreement as it relates to your license of the App-Sourced Software, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the App Stores will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement as it relates to your license of the App-Sourced Software against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.
