Thunderclap Terms of Use

Updated as of February 10, 2014

Welcome to thunderclap.it (the “Website”), operated by Thunderclap, Inc. (“we,” “us,” or “our”). BY REGISTERING FOR, VISITING OR USING ANY PART OF THE WEBSITE, THE THUNDERCLAP™ APPLICATION DESIGNED TO BE USED ON YOUR COMPUTER AND/OR MOBILE DEVICE (THE “LICENSED APPLICATION”), OR ANY OF OUR THUNDERCLAP SERVICES, FEATURES, CONTENT OR OTHER APPLICATIONS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “SERVICES”) IN ANY MANNER YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS OF THESE TERMS OF USE (THESE “TERMS OF USE”) AND ALL OTHER OPERATING RULES, POLICIES AND PROCEDURES THAT MAY BE PUBLISHED BY US FROM TIME TO TIME ON THE SERVICES, EACH OF WHICH IS INCORPORATED HEREIN BY THIS REFERENCE.

We reserve the right to modify or replace these Terms of Use and/or to change, suspend or discontinue the Services at any time in our sole discretion. We may also impose limits on certain features and Services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability. We may provide notice of changes to these Terms of Use or other matters by posting updated text on this Website or through the Services or other appropriate means of electronic communication, and your continued use of the Services following the posting of any change or modification to these Terms of Use will constitute your acceptance of the modified Terms of Use, and your use will be subject to the Terms of Use in effect at the time of your use. It is your responsibility to review these Terms of Use periodically for changes.

The Services let people be heard by posting a single message together at the same time. This is a Service where certain users can create a single message and invite others to support that specific message (“join” or “support” that Thunderclap). The way you support a message is to grant the Service access to your Facebook®, Twitter® or Tumblr® account to post that message on your behalf as a status update in your timeline or as a Tweet, as applicable. We do this through a standard API request through such service. Once a given message has received a certain number of supporters specified by the creator of the message, the Services then post (if you supported via Facebook or Tumblr) and/or Tweet (if you supported via Twitter) that message on behalf of every user who supported the message -- we do this once and roughly all at the same time.

When you join a Thunderclap, your username and profile picture from the third party service you joined through may appear on this Website (or otherwise through the Services) indicating that you are a supporter of that message. Also, after you join a Thunderclap, you have the option of sharing that you support that message via Twitter, Tumblr and/or Facebook. You do this by granting the Services access to your Twitter, Tumblr and/or Facebook accounts through standard Twitter, Tumblr and/or Facebook APIs.

LIMITED LICENSE

All Content added, created, uploaded, submitted, distributed, or posted to the Services by users (collectively “User Content”) is the sole responsibility of the person who originated such User Content. You may only post Content that you created or which the owner of the Content has given you permission to post. If Content depicts or mentions any person other than yourself, you must have permission from that person and, if that person is a minor, permission from that person's parent or legal guardian, before you post the Content. You may be required to provide proof of such permission to us.

By submitting, distributing or posting Content to or through the Services, you grant us the irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, transferable, sublicensable, fully paid and royalty-free right and license to use, reproduce, display, perform, distribute, adapt, and promote (and truncate, aggregate, modify and prepare derivative works thereof in connection with such purposes) this Content in any in connection with the Services and the promotion and distribution thereof, in any media format and through any media channel (including, but not limited to, third party websites and feeds), and including after termination of your account or the Services.

PAID SERVICES
Certain premium features of our Services are subject to payments (the “Paid Services”). Please see our premium features page at https://www.thunderclap.it/pricing for a description of the current premium features and prices. Please note that any payment terms presented to you in the process of using or signing up for a paid subscription are deemed part of these Terms of Use.

We use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill you through a payment account linked to your account on the Services (your “Billing Account”) for use of the Paid Services. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to these Terms of Use. We are not responsible for error by the Payment Processor. By choosing to sign up for Paid Services, you agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of such Paid Services in accordance with the applicable payment terms and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge your chosen payment provider (your “Payment Method”). You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method. If we, through the Payment Processor, do not receive payment from you, you agree to pay all amounts due on your Billing Account upon demand.

YOU MUST PROVIDE CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT. YOU MUST PROMPTLY UPDATE ALL INFORMATION TO KEEP YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE (SUCH AS A CHANGE IN BILLING ADDRESS, CREDIT CARD NUMBER, OR CREDIT CARD EXPIRATION DATE), AND YOU MUST PROMPTLY NOTIFY US OR OUR PAYMENT PROCESSOR IF YOUR PAYMENT METHOD IS CANCELED (E.G., FOR LOSS OR THEFT) OR IF YOU BECOME AWARE OF A POTENTIAL BREACH OF SECURITY.

If the amount to be charged to your Billing Account varies from the amount you preauthorized (other than due to the imposition or change in the amount of state sales taxes), you have the right to receive, and we shall provide, notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge before the scheduled date of the transaction. Any agreement you have with your payment provider will govern your use of your Payment Method. You agree that we may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle.

We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnifications by you, in which event you shall assist and cooperate with us in asserting any available defenses.

You acknowledge that we have no duty to take any action regarding: (i) which users gain access to the Services; (ii) what Content you access via the Services; or (iii) how you may interpret or use the Content. You release us from all liability for you having acquired or not acquired Content through the Services.

YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES AND THE LICENSED APPLICATION IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. THE SERVICES AND THE LICENSED APPLICATION IS PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, AND WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES AND/ OR OUR SERVERS, OR COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM US OR THROUGH THE SERVICES, OR THE LICENSED APPLICATION ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE (ON BEHALF OF OURSELVES AND OUR LICENSORS) EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER – IMPORTANT – PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.

YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DISPUTE INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) WITH REGARD TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES RELATED TO THESE TERMS OF USE, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, AND/OR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY AND/OR PUBLICITY, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION UNDER THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION'S RULES FOR ARBITRATION OF CONSUMER-RELATED DISPUTES AND YOU AND WE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY.

DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND WE WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. As an alternative, you may bring your claim in your local "small claims" court, if permitted by that small claims court's rules and if within such court’s jurisdiction, unless such action is transferred, removed or appealed to a different court. You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor we will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person's account, if we are a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state law concerning arbitration. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either we or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms. If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this paragraph will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with us.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT WE AND OUR DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, RELATED ENTITIES, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, CONTRACTORS, PRINCIPALS, AND LICENSORS SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY OF ANY KIND UNDER ANY NEGLIGENCE, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, FOR: (I) ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING FROM THESE TERMS OF USE OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES AND/OR THE APPLICATION OR FOR ANY OTHER CLAIM RELATED IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES AND/OR THE LICENSED APPLICATION, OR THE PERFORMANCE OR NON-PERFORMANCE OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN ANY CONTENT, OR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRED AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF ANY CONTENT POSTED, TRANSMITTED, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE VIA THE SERVICES, (II) LIABILITY THAT EXCEEDS IN THE AGGREGATE THE GREATER OF THE FEES PAID TO US BY YOU FOR THE SERVICES DURING THE IMMEDIATELY PRIOR THREE MONTHS OR $100, (III) DATA LOSS OR LOSS OF BUSINESS, GOODWILL, OR PROFITS, (IV) COSTS OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, SERVICES, TECHNOLOGY OR RIGHTS, OR (V) ANY MATTERS BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL; IN EACH CASE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THEIR POSSIBILITY. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, SO THE LIMITATIONS ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

MISCELLANEOUS
These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and us and govern your use of the Services and the Licensed Application, superseding any prior agreements between you and us. A printed version of the Terms of Use and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms of Use to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Your acceptance of these Terms of Use and use of the Services and/or the Licensed Application do not create a joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship between you and us and you have no authority to bind us in any respect. You may not assign, delegate or transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms of Use and any such prohibited assignment transfer shall be null and void. We may freely assign, delegate and transfer the Terms of Use and any of our rights and obligations. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate services, third-party content, or third-party software. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in these Terms of Use, these Terms of Use and the relationship between you and us shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict of law provisions or the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Use is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Use remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Services, the Licensed Application, or these Terms of Use will be forever barred if not filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose. All provisions of these Terms of Use which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, licenses of user Content, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity provisions, limitations of liability, and the dispute resolution provisions.

INTERNATIONAL USERS
Recognizing the global nature of the Internet, you agree to comply with all local rules regarding online conduct. Specifically, you agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States and/or the country in which you reside. You are solely responsible for ensuring that these Terms of Use are in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to you and the right to access the Services is revoked where these Terms of Use or use of the Services is prohibited or to the extent offering, sale or provision of the Services conflicts with any applicable law, rule or regulation. 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 MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
