Welcome to Placester. Please read on to learn the rules and restrictions that govern your use of our website(s), products and services (all of the foregoing, collectively, the “Services”).
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. 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 email email@example.com.
You may be required to sign up for an account, and select a password and user name (“Placester User ID”). You promise to provide us with accurate, complete, and updated registration information about yourself. You may not select as your Placester 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.
If you’ll be using the Services in connection with an organization or entity that you represent, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to agree to these Terms on that organization or entity’s behalf and bind them to these Terms (in which case, the references to “you” and “your” in these Terms, except for in this sentence, refer to that organization or entity). Otherwise, you represent and warrant that you are an individual of legal age to form a binding contract.
You will only use the Services for your own use, and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party, and only in a manner that complies with all laws that apply to you. 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.
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 represent, warrant, and agree that you will not contribute any Content or User Content (each of those terms is defined below) or otherwise use the Services or interact with the Services in a manner that:
A violation of any of the foregoing is grounds for termination of your right to use or access 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, User Content, and so forth (all of the foregoing, the “Content”) are protected by copyright and/or other intellectual property laws. You promise to abide by all copyright notices, trademark rules, information, and restrictions contained in any Content 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 Content not owned by you, (i) without the prior consent of the owner of that Content or (ii) in a way that violates someone else’s (including Placester’s) rights.
You understand that Placester owns the Services. You won’t modify, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale of, reproduce (except as expressly provided in this Section), create derivative works based on, or otherwise exploit any of the Services.
The Services may allow you to copy or download certain Content; please remember that just because this functionality exists, doesn’t mean that all the restrictions above don’t apply – they do!
For all User Content, you hereby grant Placester a license to translate, modify (for technical purposes, for example making sure your content is viewable on a mobile device as well as a computer) and reproduce and otherwise act with respect to such User Content, in each case to enable us to operate the Services, as described in more detail below. This is a license only – your ownership in User Content is not affected.
If you store User Content in your own personal Placester account, in a manner that is not viewable by any other user except you (“Personal User Content”), you grant Placester the license above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute your Personal User Content for the sole purpose of making that Personal User Content accessible to you and providing the Services necessary to do so.
If you share User Content publicly on the Services and/or in a manner that others can view (“Public User Content”), then you grant Placester the licenses above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute your Public User Content for the purpose of making that Public User Content accessible to viewers and providing the Services necessary to do so, as well as all other rights necessary to use and exercise all rights in that Public User Content in connection with the Services and/or otherwise in connection with Placester’s business, provided that Placester will notify you if it uses your Public User Content for any reason other than displaying it in connection with the Services. Also, you grant all other users of the Services a license to access, view and download that Public User Content, and to use for their own internal, non-commercial purposes.
You agree that the licenses you grant are royalty-free, perpetual, sublicenseable, irrevocable, and worldwide. When you delete your Placester account or otherwise stop using the Services, it may not be possible to completely or immediately delete that content from Placester’s records, so your Public User Content may remain publicly available.
Finally, you understand and agree that Placester, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Services to our users (including you), may need to make changes to your User Content to conform and adapt those User Content to the technical requirements of connection networks, devices, services, or media, and the foregoing licenses include the rights to do so.
You may have heard of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”), as it relates to online service providers, like Placester, being asked to remove material that allegedly violates someone’s copyright. 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 review and learn how to report potentially infringing content. View the complete Copyright Dispute Policy.
Any information or content publicly posted or privately transmitted through the Services is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such content originated, and you access all such information and content at your own risk, and we aren’t liable for any errors or omissions in that information or content or for any damages or loss you might suffer in connection with it. We cannot control and have no duty to take any action regarding how you may interpret and use the Content or what actions you may take as a result of having been exposed to the Content, and you hereby release us from all liability for you having acquired or not acquired Content through the Services. We can’t guarantee the identity of any users with whom you interact in using the Services and are not responsible for which users gain access to the Services.
You are responsible for all Content you contribute, in any manner, to the Services, and you represent and warrant you have all rights necessary to do so, in the manner in which you contribute it. You will keep all your registration information accurate and current. You are responsible for all your activity in connection with the Services.
Placester 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. In addition, Placester will not and cannot monitor, verify, censor or edit the content of any third party site or service. 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.
Your interactions with organizations and/or individuals found on or through the Services, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such organizations and/or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties. You agree that Placester shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings.
If there is a dispute between participants using the Services, or between users and any third party, you agree that Placester is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users, you release Placester, 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 or her favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
We’re always trying to improve the Services, so they may change over time. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Services. We’ll try to give you notice when we make a material change to the Services that would adversely affect you, but this isn’t always practical. Similarly, we reserve the right to remove any Content from the Services at any time, for any reason (including, but not limited to, if someone alleges you contributed that Content in violation of these Terms), in our sole discretion, and without notice.
We may allow limited use of the Services without charge; however, to access any of the features for which we charge fees, you will need to purchase one of the various Service plans offered by Placester (each, a “Plan”). Pricing for the Plans, and a description of the features associated with each Plan, is accessible to you on our website or elsewhere via the Services at the time of purchase and is subject to update upon any renewal of your subscription to the applicable Plan. You agree to pay Placester all subscription charges and any setup fees or overage charges (if applicable) as described on the Placester website, through an App, or in an order summary provided to you by Placester (collectively, the “Fees”) for each Plan you purchase. In order to set up an account with Placester, you must provide Placester with accurate and complete billing information including legal name, address, telephone number, and a valid credit card. By submitting such credit card information, you give us permission to charge all Fees incurred through your account to the designated credit card via our third party payment processor. Alternatively, you may be required to pay for the Plans you purchase by using in-app payment functionality through a payment account associated with an app store or other third party marketplace, if such functionality is supported by Placester. In either case, you must pay all applicable Fees or we may suspend your access to the Services until your account is paid in full. Any such suspension shall not affect your obligation to pay applicable charges.
Pursuant to these Terms, you are purchasing a subscription for the Plan set forth in your initial order, and agreeing to use and pay for the same as set forth in these Terms for the entire initial term of the order (the “Initial Term”), and any renewal terms. We will notify you in advance either via email or through the Services of any fee changes applicable to any renewal terms. Your subscription will automatically renew at the end of each term unless you cancel your subscription by logging into your Account and following the cancellation instructions through the Services. You agree to be financially responsible for your use of the Services, including all authorized or unauthorized use of your Account.
All payments are exclusive of federal, state, local and foreign taxes, duties, tariffs, levies, withholdings and similar assessments (including without limitation, sales taxes, use taxes and value added taxes), and you agree to bear and be responsible for the payment of all such charges, excluding taxes based upon Placester’s net income. All amounts due hereunder shall be grossed-up for any withholding taxes imposed by any foreign government.
You’re free to do that at any time by canceling Services, but keep in mind that there are no refunds for unused portions of the Services and fees will continue to accrue until the end of the then-current Plan subscription. All subsequent fees for the then-current Plan subscription will continue to be billed until your then-current Plan is paid in full. If you have paid up-front for an annual subscription, you may cancel during the then-current Plan period, however you will not be issued a refund for the unused portion of that annual subscription.
Placester is also 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. Placester has the sole right to decide whether you are in violation of any of the restrictions set forth in these Terms. Your right to use any particular Plan within the Services will also automatically expire if, when you signed up for that Plan, your subscription was only for a set period of time.
Account termination may result in destruction of any Content associated with your account, so keep that in mind before you decide to terminate your account.
If you have deleted your account by mistake, contact us immediately by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will try to help, but unfortunately, we can’t promise that we can recover or restore anything.
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 terms regarding ownership or intellectual property rights, and terms regarding disputes between us.
Placester warranties that the service provided by Placester will comply with all applicable laws and regulations and will take corrective action in the event changing laws require such. Other than any warranties specifically made in this agreement, neither Placester nor its licensors or suppliers makes any representations or warranties concerning any content contained in or accessed through the Services, and we will not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, or decency of material contained in or accessed through the Services. We (and our licensors and suppliers) make no representations or warranties regarding suggestions or recommendations of services or products offered or purchased through the Services. Products and services purchased or offered (whether or not following such recommendations and suggestions) through the Services are provided “AS IS” and without any warranty of any kind from Placester or others (unless, with respect to such others only, provided expressly and unambiguously in writing by a designated third party for a specific product). THE SERVICES AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED BY COMPANY (AND ITS LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS) ON AN “AS-IS” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THAT USE OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Limitation of Liability. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL COMPANY (OR ITS LICENSORS OR SUPPLIERS) BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR (B) ANY AMOUNT, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF THE GREATER OF (I) $100 OR (II) THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO COMPANY IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THIS APPLICABLE CLAIM, OR (III) ANY MATTER BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL. PLACESTER ALSO AGREES TO LIMIT YOUR LIABILITY TO THE SAME MONETARY AMOUNT DESCRIBED ABOVE. IN THE CASE THAT A STATE DOES NOT ENFORCE THE LIMITATION ON LIABILITY STIPULATED HERE, IT WILL BE ADJUSTED THE MINIMUM AMOUNT REQUIRED TO COMPLY WITH STATE LAW.
Indemnity. To the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, You agree to indemnify and hold Placester, its affiliates, officers, agents, employees, and partners harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising from or in any way related to any third party claims relating to (a) your use of the Services (including any actions taken by a third party using your account), and (b) your violation of these Terms.
Assignment. You may not assign, delegate or transfer these Terms or your rights or obligations hereunder, or your Services account, in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without Placester’s prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms and our rights and obligations without consent.
Choice of Law; Arbitration. These Terms are governed by and will be construed under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without regard to the conflicts of laws provisions thereof. Any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of these Terms shall be finally settled in Boston, Massachusetts, in English, in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”) then in effect, by one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and commercial contract disputes, who shall be selected from the appropriate list of JAMS arbitrators in accordance with such Rules. Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing obligation to arbitrate disputes, each party shall have the right to pursue injunctive or other equitable relief at any time, from any court of competent jurisdiction. For all purposes of this Agreement, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state or federal courts located in Boston, Massachusetts. Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis: class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Miscellaneous. You will be responsible for paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity in connection with the Services, provided that the Placester may, in its sole discretion, do any of the foregoing on your behalf or for itself as it sees fit. The failure of either you or us to exercise, in any way, any right herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. You and Placester agree that these Terms are the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding between you and Placester, and that it supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of these Terms. You hereby acknowledge and agree that you are not an employee, agent, partner, or joint venture of Placester, and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind Placester in any respect whatsoever. You and Placester agree there are no third party beneficiaries intended under these Terms.

The information we gather from customers enables us to personalize and improve our Service and to allow our users to set up a user account and profile that can be used to share content and interact with others. In connection with the Service, we collect the following types of information from our customers.
We receive and store any information you enter on our Service or knowingly provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected include your name, company name, user name, address, phone number, and email address. The Personal Information you provide is used to allow you register an account with the Service and to for communicating with you about the Service and new features, products and promotions, as well as select promotions from our partners and advertisers that we think will be of interest to you.

Application might ask for additional pieces of information, but not providing them to us is not limiting application functionality in any way. Users can provide us with such information using chat feature, which is built inside the app, and which allows them to talk with our representatives. You can authorize our Mobile Application with other third-party providers. Generally, whenever that’s the case, they will need to collect proper Personal Information needed to identify you. You can find their individual Privacy Policies below.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our Service. Placester automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, browser information and the page you requested or parts of the Service you accessed.
Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. Placester uses this information internally to understand usage trends and improve the Service, but only discloses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. We may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our site.

Our Service does not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity both while you are using the Services and after you leave our Services.
We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from Placester if your computer supports this type of program. Placester uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful and improve our service.

Individuals reading this publicly posted information may use or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge. Therefore, when using community message boards, discussion groups, or posting content in any other public-facing manner, we urge you to think carefully about including any specific information that might be used to identify you or any other information you deem private.

Moreover, if Placester, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Placester goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, customer information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Placester may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.
Protection of Placester and Others: We reserve the right to access, read and release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with that law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Placester, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
With Your Consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.
