Legal/Site Terms of Use

Legal/Site Terms of Use

By using PIQ Score, you agree to be bound by these terms of use, even if they are amended, as well as the terms and conditions of our privacy policy.

Eligibility for Membership:

You must at least 18 years of age to register for PIQ Score, and have a valid email address. Due to the limitations of the PIQ Score staff, the site is intended for voting-age citizens of the United States of America, who are English-speaking. As noted in the Blog Section Site Rules, this is not a political statement about other languages, but a practical measure to ensure that all content posted to the site can be read and understood by PIQ Score editors.

Privacy Policy:

Your privacy is important to us. All information collected from you in connection with your use of the PIQ Score site is governed by our Privacy Policy.

Modifications to Terms:

Circumstances may require us to periodically modify these Terms from time to time. We will notify you of such changes by posting the amended Terms on the PIQ Score site. In addition, we may notify you of material changes to these Terms in accordance with our Privacy Policy. These Terms, as amended, will be effective upon acceptance in registration for new users and are otherwise effective for all users 30 days after the posting of any amended terms.

Modifications to the Site:

Circumstances may also require us to periodically modify the PIQ Score site, or to change or discontinue any of the services offered on the Site with or without notice to you. We shall not be liable to you or to any third party should we exercise our right to modify the Site or to change or discontinue our service offerings. If you object to any change to the PIQ Score site or our services, your sole recourse will be to discontinue using the Site. Your continued use of any modified service on the Site will indicate your assent to such changes.

Liability:

The PIQ Score editorial staff makes good faith efforts to ensure that all information in the site is accurate and free of inappropriate content; information that fails to meet these standards is routinely purged, but we do not guarantee that all information on the site will meet those editorial standards at all times. Don't assume that PIQ Score management agrees with or endorses any particular comment just because we let it remain in the Blogs. PIQ Score is not responsible for the accuracy of information posted by PIQ Score members, or for the content of posts made by those members.

Responsibility for Content:

PIQ Score Blog participants are solely responsible for 1) ensuring the accuracy of information they post, and 2) any legal consequences that result from their postings. PIQ Score does not accept ownership of members' Blog or Blogitorial comments, and expressly disclaims any and all liability that may result from them. By commenting on our site, members tacitly agree that they are solely responsible for what they post here and that they release PIQ Score from any and all liability that may result from their postings.

If you choose to post material to any blogs, or in any other community features that may be offered from time to time on PIQ Score, you will be solely responsible for all content, messages, text, files, images, graphics, photos, audio clips, sounds, videos, or other materials (the "Postings"). You agree and warrant that any Postings you make on the Site will be true and accurate, will not defame any person or invade any person's privacy, and will not infringe upon the proprietary rights of any person. You agree not to make any Postings to which you do not own the rights. By making Postings, you understand and acknowledge that visitors to PIQ Score may post comments about your Postings which may be derogatory, and that PIQ Score has no legal obligation to monitor or delete any such comments.

PIQ Score reserves the right, but has no legal obligation, to monitor Postings; it does not and cannot monitor all of the Postings made to the Site and is not responsible for the content of any Postings made by Site members. PIQ Score has no obligation to verify the accuracy of any personally identifying information posted to our Site. However, PIQ Score reserves the right to delete any material in any Posting that is obscene, harassing, offensive, or otherwise objectionable and not in keeping with the community standards of PIQ Score. Under no circumstances will PIQ Score be liable for any inaccuracy or defect in any Postings. We also expect our users to adhere to certain rules. Therefore, members agree not to post, e-mail, or otherwise make available Postings that violate the PIQ Score Blog Rules, Terms of Use, or Privacy Policy.

Because PIQ Score does not have the means to monitor every Posting, you agree to use and rely on them at your own risk. PIQ Score cannot make any representation or warranty about the material contained in the Postings. PIQ Score likewise assumes no responsibility for any contact you may have with other users of our Site, either online or offline. If you elect to meet in person with someone you may meet on our Site, you do so at your own risk; under no circumstances will PIQ Score be liable for any activity or injury that may occur.

Similarly, visitors to the PIQ Score Website are solely responsible for any content they encounter; if a visitor finds any content objectionable or offensive, he or she should simply exit the site, and notify webmaster@piqscore.com. Notifying the webmaster of objectionable content is not a guarantee that the content in question will be purged from the site.

License to Re-Use Content:

Members agree to grant PIQ Score a worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sub-licenseable and transferable license to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce, or otherwise distribute your comments without limitation, as well as to make such additional uses of them as may be needed by PIQ Score.

Third-Party Services / Co-Branding Partners:

For the convenience of our users, PIQ Score may provide you with links to third-party Web sites or locations (called "Provider.") Our providing links does not signify an endorsement by PIQ Score of the third party's Web site or the services offered by such third-party. PIQ Score has no control over, does not review, and cannot be responsible for these outside Web sites or their content. Your use of a third-party Web site will be subject to such third-party's terms of use and privacy policy. Should you decide to use the services of a Provider, any transaction between you and such Provider (including any agreement governing such transaction) will strictly be between you and the Provider. PIQ Score has no control over the Provider's performance of its services, and PIQ Score makes no representations or warranties with respect to the Provider's performance of its services.

Similarly, portions of the PIQ Score site may contain links to Web sites hosted by co-branding partners ("Co-Branders"). Information and services provided by Co-Branders on their Web sites are governed by that Co-Brander's terms of use and privacy policies. Our provision of a link to a Co-Brander's Web site is for your convenience only, and PIQ Score has no control over and cannot be responsible for any content provided by a Co-Brander on such Web sites.

YOU AGREE THAT PIQ SCORE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY SORT INCURRED AS THE RESULT OF ANY SUCH TRANSACTION WITH A PROVIDER OR CO-BRANDER.

IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH ANY PORTION OF THE SITE, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USE OF THE SITE.

The aggregate liability of PIQ Score to you for all claims arising from or related to the Site or the PIQ Score content is limited to the lesser of the fees paid by you to PIQ Score for services provided on the Site or fifty dollars ($50).

Exclusions and Limitations:

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations and disclaimers may not apply to you. To the extent that we may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty or limit its liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of our liability shall be the minimum permitted under such applicable law.
