As between you and Purpose Network, you own the content and information that you submit or post to the Site and you are only granting Purpose Network the following non-exclusive license: A worldwide, irrevocable, transferable and sublicensable right to use, copy, modify, distribute, publish, and process, information and content that you provide through our Site, without any further consent, notice and/or compensation to you or others. These rights are limited in the following ways:

  1. We will not include your content in advertisements for the products and services of others (including sponsored content) to others without your separate consent.

  3. While we may edit and make formatting changes to your content (such as translating it, modifying the size, layout or file type or removing metadata), we do not intend to modify the meaning of your expression.

Privacy

This Site is governed by the terms and conditions set out in our Privacy Policy.

Disputes, Governing Law and Jurisdiction

No matter where your physical location, you agree that you have entered into this agreement in the State of Florida. This Agreement shall be governed by those laws of the State of Florida applicable to contracts entered into and performed entirely within the State of Florida. Any disputes arising under or related in any way to these Terms of Use, the Site’s Privacy Policy or the use of the Site shall be litigated or otherwise heard in the appropriate forum in Orlando, Florida. Any dispute shall be submitted to confidential mediation, and if mediation is unsuccessful to arbitration, under the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association. The rules are available online at www.adr.org. If mediation is unsuccessful, the arbitrator's award shall include findings of fact and conclusions of law and shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you are prohibited from bringing any court action of any kind until after the arbitration award is issued, and no arbitration under these Terms of Use shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to these Terms of Use, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, to the extent that Purpose Network believes that you have violated Purpose Network's intellectual property rights, Purpose Network may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any federal or state court located in Orlando, Florida without having to submit the matter to mediation/arbitration as stated above, and you consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.

General Terms

These Terms of Use, as they may be amended or changed by Purpose Network from time to time, constitute the entire agreement between you and Purpose Network. If any provision of these Terms of Use shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Use and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Purpose Network's failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive Purpose Network's right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. The section headings used herein are for convenience only and shall not be given any legal import. Purpose Network reserves the right to revise the Terms of Use at any time upon notice to end users, which notice shall be deemed given upon posting of changes. If you don't agree to these changes, you must stop using the Site.

Copyright Policy

Complaints regarding content posted on The Purpose Network website

Purpose Network respects the intellectual property rights of others and desires to offer a platform which contains no content that violates those rights. Our Terms of Use requires that information posted by users be accurate, lawful and not in violation of the rights of third parties. To promote these objectives, Purpose Network provides a process for submission of complaints concerning content posted by our users. Our policy and procedures are described and/or referenced in the sections that follow.

Please note that whether or not we disable access to or remove content, Purpose Network may make a good faith attempt to forward the written notification, including the complainant’s contact information, to the user who posted the content and/or take other reasonable steps to notify the user that Purpose Network has received notice of an alleged violation of intellectual property rights or other content violation. It is also our policy, in appropriate circumstances and in our discretion, to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users, or groups as the case may be, who infringe or repeatedly infringe the rights of others or otherwise post unlawful content.

Please note that any notice or counter-notice you submit must be truthful and must be submitted under penalty of perjury. A false notice or counter-notice may give rise to personal liability. You may, therefore, want to seek the advice of legal counsel before submitting a notice or a counter-notice.
