Terms and Conditions
Last modified: April 25, 2019
This agreement remains in full force and effect while you use the Website and/or any of the Slides. All provisions of the Terms shall survive termination by either party, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, and limitations of liability.
The Website and the Slides are intended only for access and use by individuals at least eighteen (18) years old. If you are not at least eighteen (18) years old, you are prohibited from both the access and usage of the Website and the Slides.
We may revise and update these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Website and the Slides thereafter. Your continued use of the Website or any Slides following the posting of revised Terms means you accept and agree to the changes.
Slide License and Use of Slides
By subscribing to our services on the Website, including agreeing to these Terms, you can access and download Slides created by the Company for your personal use in your own slide presentations. By accessing and/or downloading any Slides, you agree and understand that such Slides, and all content therein, are licensed, not sold, to you for use only under these Terms. The Company reserves all rights not expressly granted to you.
This license granted to you for the Slides and all content therein by the Company is a non-transferable, revocable, worldwide, non-sublicensable license to use the Slides provided to you by the Company for your personal, non-commercial use. This means that while you can use the Slides and any content therein for professional purposes, including for your business or job, you cannot rent, lease, lend, sell, sublicense, or otherwise distribute, publish, or transfer the Slides or any content therein in exchange for monetary or other consideration. Additionally, you are not permitted to post, distribute, publish, or otherwise provide any Slides or any content therein in any manner that allows another party to download the Slides or any content therein in the form provided to you by the Company. Any attempt to do any of the foregoing is a violation of the rights of the Company and its licensors. If you breach this restriction, you may be subject to prosecution and damages. The terms of the license will govern any changes provided by the Company that replace and/or supplement the original Slide(s), unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate license in which case the terms of that license will govern.
The Website may contain message boards, public user profiles, forums, bulletin boards, and other interactive features that allow users to post, publish, or transmit to other persons content or materials (collectively, “User Contributions”) on the Website.
Any User Contribution you post to the Website will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary. By providing any User Contribution on the Website, you grant us and our affiliates and service providers, and each of their and our respective licensees, successors, and assigns a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferrable, sublicensable, royalty-free license to sublicense, use, reproduce, copy, modify, create derivative works of, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute, and otherwise disclose to third parties and/or exploit in any manner any such material for any purpose.
Accessing the Website and Account Security
We reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Website, and any service or material we provide on the Website, including any Slides, in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Website or its services are unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Website, or the entire Website, to users, including registered users.
You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information, as well as any and all activities that occur under your account. You must immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account and any other such security breach. We will not be liable for any loss that may occur as a result of someone else using your account or password, with or without your knowledge. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information.
We have the right to disable any user name, password, or account at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of our Terms.
Changes to the Website
We may update the content on the Website from time to time, but its content is not necessarily complete or up-to-date. Any of the material on the Website or the Slides may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update such material.
The Website is a subscription-based service with fees charged on a monthly basis. When you register on the Website, you will select your subscription frequency and agree to pay the associated subscription fee. Unless otherwise noted on the Website, subscription fees are automatically charged to your payment method each month.
The Company reserves the right to modify its fee structure at any time and without advanced notice. Temporary or permanent modifications are effective as soon as they are published on the Website and are applicable to all subsequent transactions. In the case of temporary modifications, the duration of the changes will be clearly indicated on the Website.
You can cancel your subscription to the Website and Slides at any time through your account on the Website and will be effective immediately. No refunds will be given at the time of cancellation, but you will not be charged for any future months unless you reactivate your subscription through the Website.
You are solely liable for all the taxes, fees, and commissions resulting from use of the Website and the Slides. These Terms do not create a joint venture, partnership, or principal-agent relationship between you and the Company, or any other users, and nothing in the Terms may be used to imply such a relationship. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold the Company harmless from any liability for, or assessment of, any claims or penalties with respect to such taxes, labor, or employment requirements, including any liability for, or assessment of taxes imposed on the Company by the relevant taxing authorities with respect to any fees paid to you as the result of using the Website or the Slides.
In the event that you provide us any ideas, thoughts, criticisms, suggested improvements, or other feedback related to Website or any Slides (collectively “Feedback”), you agree we may use the Feedback to: (a) improve our Website and/or Slides and (b) promote the Website and/or Slides, and that you will not be due any compensation for your Feedback that is used in these ways. To the extent that we have your name, likeness, or voice, this will be part of the Feedback and you agree that we may use your name, likeness and voice in the same manner that we can use other Feedback. You grant to us a worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid, perpetual, irrevocable license to use, reproduce, modify, translate, distribute, perform, display, import, sell, offer for sale, make, have made and otherwise exploit the Feedback in any form, media, or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, and to allow others to do the same. This is true whether you provide the Feedback on the Website or through any other method of communication with us, unless we have entered into a separate agreement with you that provides otherwise.
