This Terms of Service Agreement (the “Agreement”) is an agreement between you (“You”) and Podomatic, Inc. ("Podomatic ", "we", “our” or "us"). We provide users with access to certain services to create, browse, search, listen to and manage podcasts by providing general and personalized content, hosting services, communication tools, forums, mobile applications, networks, ecommerce tools and other services (collectively, the “Services”) through the mobile applications and the website and associated domains of https://www.podomatic.com (the “Site"). This Agreement explains our obligations to You, and your obligations to us. This Agreement, our Privacy Policy and any other legal notices or conditions or guidelines posted to the Site or through the Services constitute the entire agreement between us. By visiting or using the Site or Services in any way, You are agreeing to comply with these terms, our Privacy Policy and any other legal notices or conditions or guidelines posted on the Site or through Services.

  1. Our Rights in the Site and Services
  2. All products and services available on the Site, including the Services, and all other products and services provided by or through Podomatic, its affiliates, subsidiaries, employees, agents, licensors or other commercial partners including, but not limited to, software, informational text, interfaces, software documentation, design of and "look and feel," layout, photographs, graphics, audio, video, messages, interactive and instant messaging, design and functions, files, documents, images, or other products, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, as well as all derivative works thereof, are owned by us or other parties that have licensed their material or provided services to us, and are protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret and other intellectual property laws. All Podomatic trademarks and service marks, logos, slogans and taglines are the property of Podomatic. All other trademarks, service marks, logos, slogans and taglines are the property of their respective owners. Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, nothing should be construed as granting any license or right to use any trademarks, service marks, logos, slogans or taglines displayed on the Site or through the Services without our express written permission, or the express written permission of such third-party that may own the trademark, service mark, logo, slogan or tagline.

  3. Your License to Use the Site and Services
  4. Subject to your compliance with this Agreement and the law, Podomatic hereby grants You a limited, revocable, non-transferable and non-exclusive license to use the Site and Services. If you choose to register for an account in connection with the Services, you may do so through a user identification reference provided by Podomatic (“User ID”) to the extent, and only to the extent, necessary to access and use the Services in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. When the Services require or include downloadable software (such as the Podomatic apps), you give permission for that software to update automatically on your device. Unless such software is governed by additional terms which provide a license, Podomatic grants you a limited, revocable, non-transferable and non-exclusive license to use the software provided to you as part of the Services.

    You may access the Services and/or listen to other users’ Content (as defined below) for your personal, non-commercial use only. The licenses granted in this section do not permit You, and You agree not to: a) access, download, store, copy, reproduce, republish, alter, modify, upload, post, translate, scrape, rent, lease, loan, sell, license, distribute, transfer, transmit, broadcast, display, or otherwise use any part of the Site, Services or Content except as expressly provided in this Agreement without prior written consent from Podomatic and, if applicable, the respective rights holders; or b) circumvent, disable, fraudulently engage with, decompile, reverse engineer, reverse assemble, decipher, attempt to discover any programming code or any source code used in or with the Services or otherwise interfere in any way with the Site, Services or Content. You may not sell, assign, sublicense, grant any security interest in or otherwise attempt to transfer any right in the Site, Services or other users’ Content, or create derivative works based on or in any manner commercially exploit the Site, Services or other users’ Content, in whole or in part, other than as expressly permitted in this Agreement. Any use of the Site, Services or Content for any purpose other than as specifically permitted herein or without our prior consent or the prior written consent of our licensors, as applicable, is expressly prohibited. We reserve all rights not expressly granted in this Agreement.

    Upon account registration, we will provide You one User ID for your account, thereby permitting You access to the Services. You agree to fully and accurately provide the information requested by us when setting up your accounts and to regularly update such information. Your failure to do so may result in the cancellation of your account and loss of Services.

    You agree to treat your User ID as confidential and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You also agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your User ID or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. 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.

  5. Content on the Services
  6. The content available on the Site and through the Services includes information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, images, graphics, video, messages, branding, interactive features, software, metrics, products, services and other materials (collectively, “Content”). Content may be uploaded, submitted or contributed to the Services by users and Podomatic is a provider of hosting services for such Content. Content is the responsibility of the person or entity providing it to Podomatic. Podomatic is not responsible for the Content and will not be liable to any third party in connection with the Content.

    You may choose to create, upload, submit, post or otherwise contribute Content to the Site or through the Services provided that such Content complies with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You will retain ownership of your rights in your Content. However, we do require You to grant certain rights to us and to other users of the Services and third-party services, as described below.

    You hereby grant Podomatic and our affiliates, partners, service providers and each of our and their respective licensees, successors and assigns, a worldwide, sublicensable, royalty-free, transferable and non-exclusive license to: a) host, store and use your Content in order to provide You and our users with the Services; b) to use, copy, encode, store, archive, distribute, transmit, modify, translate, dub, sub-title, create teaser content, render into audible or other technical format, combine with other content, remix, publicly display, publicly perform and distribute your Content, in whole or in part, via any means, including, without limitation, the internet or by wireless transmission, in connection with the Services or any third party services to which you have agreed to submit your Content; c) to use, copy, translate, display, publish and transmit your Content for the purpose of developing and operating the Podomatic Site, Services and networks; and d) market, promote and advertise your Content in connection with the Services or any third party services to which you have agreed to submit or contribute your Content. You also grant each other user of the Services, and any user of any third party services to whom your Content is made available, a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to access your Content on the Site or through the Services or such third-party service.

    You hereby represent and warrant that: (i) You have all the rights necessary to grant such licenses, (ii) your Content and the exercise of any license granted to such Content does not and will not violate the rights of any third party or any law, and (iii) your Content complies with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We are not responsible for any Content that may be lost or unrecoverable. You are encouraged to archive your Content regularly and frequently.

    We take no responsibility for and we do not expressly or implicitly endorse any of your Content. Because you alone are responsible for your Content, you may expose yourself to liability if you use, exploit, share or otherwise distribute your Content without the required rights.

  7. Submitting Your Content to our Third-Party Partners
  8. In connection with the Services, we may partner with third parties to give You the ability to make your Content available on their podcast audio platforms (e.g., Pandora, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Amazon, Deezer, etc.). By choosing to make your Content available on such third-party platforms, You consent to Podomatic’s disclosure and transfer of your Content and any other information required to be sent to such third-party on your behalf. You also agree to accept and abide by any such third-party’s terms and conditions of use with respect to your Content and information provided, whether or not those terms and conditions of use are presented to You. We are not responsible or liable to You for any use of your Content or any other information by any such third-party.

  9. Giving Us Access to Other Accounts and Services
  10. Some of our Services may require You to give us access to or require You to provide login information and password information for accounts or services You may have with third party providers. When You provide this information to us or give us access to these third party accounts, You agree that You have read all terms, conditions, contracts and written agreements governing such access, login information and passwords and that You have all the necessary contractual and legal rights to give us such access, login information and passwords.

  11. Comments and Feedback
  12. Any questions, comments, suggestions, ideas, feedback, or other information provided by You to us (“Comments”) are not confidential and You hereby grant us a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free license to reproduce, display, perform, distribute, publish, modify, edit or otherwise use such Comments as we deem appropriate, for any and all commercial and/or non-commercial purposes, in our sole discretion.

  13. Monitoring Content
  14. Podomatic is under no obligation to host or serve Content and Podomatic may, but has no obligation to, monitor any Content. The views, messages and opinions expressed in the Content do not necessarily reflect those of Podomatic. We may disclose any information necessary or appropriate to satisfy our legal obligations, protect Podomatic or its users, or operate the Services properly. Podomatic, in its sole discretion, may refuse to post, remove, or require You to remove, any Content, in whole or in part, which is alleged to be offensive, defamatory, pornographic, child pornography, threatening, harassing, obscene, illegal, contain harmful viruses, or advocate or incite violence; that is required to be taken down by law, including the DMCA (as defined below); which infringes a third party’s rights under trademark and/or copyright law; or is in violation of this Agreement.

  15. Copyright Complaint
  16. If You believe that your work has been used or copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement and such infringement is occurring on this Site or through the Services, please notify Podomatic. Pursuant to the Online Copyright Information Liability Limitation Act of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3)) (“DMCA”), a notification of claimed infringement must be a written communication addressed to our DMCA designated agent (named below), and must include substantially all of the following:

We may also report you to law enforcement officials in the appropriate jurisdictions.

  19. Fees
  20. We offer both free and paid accounts. If you choose to use a paid account, You may agree to a one (1) month, six (6) month, twelve (12) month or twenty-four (24) month contract agreement with Podomatic. Some of the features on the Services require payment of fees, as described for each Services on the Site (“Fees”). If You sign up for these features, You must pay all applicable feature Fees. We reserve the right to change our prices and/or bundle certain parts of the Services together for pricing purposes, and may do so at any time. You authorize us to make any reasonably necessary inquiries to validate your account and financial information.

    All Fees are in USD and are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and You are responsible for payment thereof. If You purchase any Services that we offer for a Fee, You consent to Podomatic, or our third party service providers, storing your payment card information and You authorize us to charge You (a) any Fees for Services You may purchase, and (b) any applicable taxes in connection with your use of the Services to the payment card You provide, and You will reimburse us for all collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts. If the payment card You provide expires and You do not provide new payment card information or cancel your account, You authorize us to continue billing you and You will remain responsible for any uncollected Fees.

    AT THE END OF THE CONTRACT TERM, YOUR CONTRACT WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW FOR AN ADDITIONAL CONTRACT TERM UNTIL EXPLICITLY CANCELLED BY YOU, AND YOUR PREFERRED PAYMENT METHOD WILL BE CHARGED ACCORDINGLY. CANCELLATIONS MUST BE ISSUED VIA YOUR PODOMATIC ACCOUNT ONLY. ANY CANCELLATION MUST BE DONE THREE (3) DAYS PRIOR TO THE END OF THE CONTRACT TERM TO ALLOW FOR ADEQUATE PROCESSING TIME. NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN FOR ANY DAYS REMAINING IN YOUR CURRENT BILLING CYCLE.

    YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR PROPERLY CANCELING YOUR ACCOUNT. AN EMAIL OR PHONE REQUEST TO CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT IS NOT CONSIDERED CANCELLATION. YOU CAN CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT AT ANY TIME BY CLICKING ON THE ACCOUNT LINK IN THE GLOBAL NAVIGATION BAR AT THE TOP OF THE SCREEN. THE ACCOUNT SCREEN PROVIDES A SIMPLE NO QUESTIONS ASKED CANCELLATION "GO BASIC" LINK. SUBSCRIBERS USING PAYPAL ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR CONFIRMING CANCELLATION VIA THE PAYPAL SITE. PODOMATIC IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR CHARGES OCCURRING FROM IMPROPERLY CANCELLED SUBSCRIPTIONS. IF YOU CANCEL THE SERVICES BEFORE THE END OF YOUR CURRENT PAID-UP MONTH, YOUR CANCELLATION WILL TAKE EFFECT IMMEDIATELY AND YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED AGAIN. DELETING YOUR PODOMATIC ACCOUNT IS NOT THE SAME AS CANCELING YOUR PAID ACCOUNT.

    Only Services and features clearly indicated as "free" or "no charge" are free or without charge. It is not the responsibility of Podomatic to provide free support for You in the use and operation of Podomatic’s Services. All other applications, features, functionality and support provided by Podomatic and its partners are provided for the Fees described for each service and You are liable for such Fees.

  21. Cancellation of Services; Deletion of Account
  22. If you cancel the Services, your cancellation will take effect immediately. After cancellation or deletion of your account, you will no longer have access to your files, data and information stored in your account and we may retain or delete all information, including your Content, in accordance with our business practices. We accept no liability for such retained or deleted information or Content.

  23. Taxes
  24. You take full responsibility for all taxes and fees of any nature associated with Services.

  25. Account Suspension; Termination
    1. The Services and this Agreement may be terminated by us, without cause, at any time.
    2. The Services and this Agreement may be terminated by You, without cause, by deleting your account or, if you have a paid account, by following the cancellation procedures set forth in Section 10 Fees.
    3. Podomatic may suspend or terminate your access to the Services at any time, without penalty and without notice, if You fail to comply with any of the terms of this Agreement, including but not limited to the intellectual property protections applicable to these Services and the Content.
    4. Notice of suspension or termination of Services (and this Agreement) by Podomatic may be sent to the contact e-mail associated with your account. Upon termination, Podomatic has the right to delete all data, files, or other information that is stored in your account. For avoidance of doubt, Podomatic has no obligation to store, maintain or provide You a copy of any Content that you or other users provide when using the Site or Services.

  26. Errors in Content
  27. THE USER PROVIDING THE CONTENT IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCURACY AND APPROPRIATENESS OF ALL DATA AND INFORMATION WITHIN THE CONTENT; INCLUDING SALES TAX CALCULATIONS, PRODUCT PRICING, PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS, SHIPPING CHARGES, CONTACT INFORMATION, EMAIL COMMUNICATIONS, AND ELECTRONIC PAYMENT PROCESSING. PODOMATIC WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR INACCURATE INFORMATION AND ANY ACTUAL OR POTENTIAL DAMAGES CAUSED BY SUCH INACCURACIES. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT PODOMATIC MAY NOT MAINTAIN COPIES OF FILES, INFORMATION OR DOCUMENTS THAT ARE SENT BY YOU AND THAT YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR BACKING UP THIS DATA.

  28. Third Party Websites; Third Party Services; No Implied Endorsement
  29. The Site and Services may contain links to other web sites owned by third parties ("Third Party Sites"). Please note that when you click on any of these links, You are entering another website for which we have no responsibility or control. You may also have the ability through the Site or Services to login to accounts that You have for services provided by third parties (“Third Party Services”) or to link accounts for Third Party Services to your Podomatic account. Podomatic is not responsible for any activity occurring within Third Party Services, even if logged in through or linked to a Podomatic account.

    You agree that we shall not be responsible for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as a result of your use of any Third Party Sites and/or Third Party Services, whether or not You were linked to or directed to a Third Party Site or Third Party Service through the Site or Services. You acknowledge that Third Party Sites and Third Party Services may be subject to the applicable third party provider’s terms and conditions, and You are solely responsible for reviewing and complying with any such terms and conditions. In no event shall any reference on the Site or Services to any third party, third party website or third party product or service be construed as an approval or endorsement by us of that third party, third party website or of any product or service provided by a third party.

  30. Disclaimer and Warranty
  31. THE SITE AND SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS,” “AS AVAILABLE,” “WITH ALL FAULTS” AND WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.

    IN ADDITION, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANY DATA, INFORMATION, CONTENT, SERVICES OR PRODUCTS CONTAINED IN OR MADE AVAILABLE IN CONNECTION WITH THE SITE OR SERVICES IS NOT INTENDED AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR THE KNOWLEDGE, EXPERTISE, SKILL AND JUDGMENT THAT TAX, LEGAL OR OTHER PROFESSIONALS MAY OFFER. PODOMATIC DOES NOT PROVIDE TAX OR LEGAL ADVICE. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR OBTAINING SUCH ADVICE.

    FURTHER, PODOMATIC MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTIES THAT THE SERVICES OR THE SITE ARE APPROPRIATE OR AVAILABLE FOR USE IN ALL GEOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS. IF YOU USE THE SITE OR THE SERVICES OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR COMPLIANCE WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION EXPORT AND IMPORT REGULATIONS OF OTHER COUNTRIES. NEITHER PODOMATIC NOR ANY THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS, PARTNERS OR AFFILIATES WARRANT THAT THE SITE, ITS SERVERS, THE PRODUCTS, THE SERVICES OR ANY E-MAIL SENT FROM THE SITE, THE SERVICES OR ANY THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS, PARTNERS OR AFFILIATES ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.

    THIS AGREEMENT APPLIES SOLELY TO THE SITE AND THE SERVICES. AS PART OF THE SERVICES PROVIDED TO OTHER PODOMATIC USERS, WE MAY HOST THIRD PARTY SITES. THIRD PARTY SITES INCLUDE CONTENT GENERATED BY THIRD PARTIES AND ARE NOT UNDER THE MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL OF PODOMATIC. PODOMATIC IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCH THIRD PARTY SITES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE ACCURACY, SUFFICIENCY, CORRECTNESS, RELIABILITY, VERACITY, COMPLETENESS OR TIMELINESS THEREOF, ANY LINK CONTAINED THEREIN, OR ANY CHANGES OR UPDATES THERETO, OR ANY GOODS OR SERVICES SOLD THEREON. YOUR ACCESS OR USE OF ANY THIRD-PARTY SITE IS GOVERNED BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLICABLE TO SUCH THIRD-PARTY SITE. THE HOSTING OF ANY THIRD-PARTY SITE BY PODOMATIC DOES NOT IMPLY AN ENDORSEMENT THEREOF BY PODOMATIC, OR PODOMATIC’S ENDORSEMENT OF THE PROVIDER OF SUCH CONTENT OR SERVICES, OF ANY THIRD-PARTY SITE.

  32. Limitation of Liability
  33. WE ARE NOT LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT OR SPECIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY PERSONAL INJURY, LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR OTHER DATA ON YOUR COMPUTER OR OTHERWISE) ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH USE OF THE SITE, THE SERVICES, OR ANY CONTENT AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES, WHETHER UNDER A THEORY OF BREACH OF CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, MALPRACTICE OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF PODOMATIC HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. YOU HEREBY HOLD PODOMATIC AND ITS PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, AND OUR AND THEIR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, TRUSTEES, SUBCONTRACTORS, AGENTS AND EMPLOYEES (COLLECTIVELY, “THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES”), HARMLESS FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, AND DAMAGES OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ACTUAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL), KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THE USE OF THE SERVICES, SITE, OR ANY CONTENT AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES.

You shall not settle any matter involving an Indemnified Party without the consent of the applicable Indemnified Party.

  38. Changes to the Site or Services; Amendments to this Agreement
  39. For as long as we continue to offer the Services, we will provide and seek to update, improve, and expand the Services. As a result, we allow You to access the Services as they may exist and be available on any given day and have no other obligations, except as expressly stated in this Agreement. We may modify, replace, refuse access to, suspend or discontinue the Services, partially or entirely, or change and modify prices for all or part of the Services for You or for all our users in our sole discretion. We will not be liable if, for any reason, all or any part of the Site or Services are unavailable for any period of time. All changes are effective upon their posting on our Site or through the Services, or by direct communication to You unless otherwise noted. We further reserve the right to withhold, remove and or discard any Content available as part of your account, with or without notice if deemed by us to be contrary to this Agreement.

    In the event of any change to this Agreement, we will post a notice on the Site and Services that we have changed this Agreement. If You have a Podomatic account, we may (but are not required to) provide You with notice via the email address that we have on file for You that we have changed this Agreement. You and we both understand that sometimes there are issues with email communication. We are not responsible if any email notice gets caught by your SPAM filter and You do not see it, if You have given us the wrong email address or failed to update your address, or if there are other communications issues that prevent email from reaching You. Therefore, we encourage You to frequently visit this page periodically to monitor any changes. Your continued use of or access to the Site or Services following the posting of any changes to this Agreement constitutes acceptance of those changes.

    We may also, in the future, offer new services and/or features through the Site or Services. For the avoidance of doubt, such new features and/or services shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

  40. Disputes
  41. The formation, interpretation and performance of this Agreement and any disputes arising out of it shall be governed by the substantive and procedural laws of the state of California without regard to its rules on conflicts or choice of law and, to the extent applicable, the laws of the United States of America. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue for actions related to the subject matter hereof shall be the state and federal courts located in San Francisco, California, and You hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts. You hereby waive any right to a jury trial in any proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement.

  42. Privacy
  43. We encourage You to carefully read our Privacy Policy, and to use the information it contains to help You make informed decisions regarding how we collect and use your information. Please also note that certain information, statements, data and content (such as photographs) which You post, upload, submit or otherwise contribute to the Site or Services are likely to reveal your name, gender, ethnic origin, nationality, age, and/or other personal information about You. You acknowledge and agree that your submission of such information is voluntary on your part. Further, You acknowledge, consent and agree that we may access, preserve, and disclose your registration and any other information you provide if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary in our opinion. Disclosures of user information to third parties are further addressed in the Privacy Policy.

  44. Other
