Restricted Access

Access to certain areas of Website is restricted. Unauthorized access to restricted areas of the Website is expressly prohibited and may give rise to civil and/or criminal penalties. We reserve the right to restrict access to other areas of our website, or indeed our whole website, at our discretion.

If we provide you with a user ID and password to enable you to access restricted areas of Website or other content or services, you must ensure that that user ID and password are kept confidential. You must inform us as soon as possible if you believe the security of your ID or password has or may have been compromised. We reserve the right to disable your user ID and password in our sole discretion without notice or explanation.

User-Generated Content

In this Agreement, “your user content” means material (including without limitation text, images, audio material, video material and audio-visual material) that you submit to Website for whatever purpose. You grant to us a worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use, reproduce, adapt, publish, translate and distribute your user content in any existing or future media. You also grant us the right to sub-license these rights, and the right to bring an action for infringement of these rights. Your user content must not be illegal or unlawful, must not infringe any third party’s legal rights, and must not be capable of giving rise to legal action whether against you or Website or a third party (in each case under any applicable law).

You must not submit any user content to Website that is or has ever been the subject of any threatened or actual legal proceedings or other similar complaint. We reserve the right to edit or remove any material submitted to Website or stored on our servers, or hosted or published upon our website. Notwithstanding our rights under these terms of use in relation to user content, we do not undertake to monitor the submission of such content to, or the publication of such content on, the Website.

Limitation of Liability

YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE WITH US CONCERNING THE WEBSITE IS TO DISCONTINUE YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE. Any and all claims relating to the use of the Website shall be limited to and not exceed the amount of service fees, if any, that you paid us during a one-year period for the specific service at issue. To the extent that the Website and the information and services on the Website are provided free of charge, we will not be liable for any loss or damage of any nature. We shall not be liable for any indirect, special, incidental, consequential or exemplary damages arising from your use of, inability to use, or reliance upon the Website. These exclusions apply to any claims for lost profits, lost data, loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, or any other damages or losses, even if we knew or should have known of the possibility of such damages. Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability and the liability of our suppliers shall be limited to the extent permitted by law.

Termination

Your right to use the Website automatically terminates if you violate this Agreement or any rules or guidelines posted in connection with the Website. We also reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to discontinue the Website or terminate your access to all or part of the Website, for any reason, with or without notice.

Modification and Enforcement of this Agreement

This Agreement constitutes the current, sole and entire agreement between you and us with respect to the use of our Website, and any and all prior “Terms of Use” with respect to the use of our Website are superseded by this Agreement. You acknowledge and agree that no practice or course of dealing between you and any JOYN company, nor any oral representations by any JOYN’ officer, director, employee or representative, which purports to vary the terms and conditions of this Agreement, shall constitute a modification or amendment of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. No failure by us to exercise, and no delay by us in exercising, any right or remedy shall operate as a waiver thereof. If any provision of this Agreement or the application thereof to any person or circumstances shall, to any extent, be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be deemed automatically reformed to the extent, and only to the extent, necessary to render it valid and enforceable under applicable law; however, if such reformation of the provision is not reasonably possible, the provision shall be deemed severed from this Agreement with respect to the person or circumstances as to which such provision shall be invalid or unenforceable, and the remainder of this Agreement continue in full force and effect to the fullest extent permitted by law.

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia, without regard to its conflicts of law’s provisions or your actual state or country of residence, and applicable federal law. For purposes of any action or proceeding arising out of this Agreement, you expressly submit to the jurisdiction of all federal and state courts located in the State of Georgia, and agree that we, in our discretion, may require that Atlanta, Georgia, be the venue for any legal proceedings arising out of or related to this Agreement. You waive and agree not to assert in any action, suit or proceeding that you are not personally subject to the jurisdiction of such courts, that the action, suit or proceeding is brought in an inconvenient forum or that venue of the action, suit or proceeding is improper. In the event that you should have any claim or cause of action against us arising out of your use of the Website, you agree that, regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, such claim or cause of action must be initiated or filed in a court of competent jurisdiction within one (1) year after accruing or be forever barred.
