Thank you for your interest in Upbis, and for taking the time to familiarize yourself with our terms and policies:
Information We Collect
We may collect information about you and your use of our website, and any products, software, data, content, and services offered on, from or through our website and/or mobile application(s) (collectively, the "Service"). We may collect personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, IP address, UDID or other applicable device identifier, content stored on your device and related meta data, demographic and biographical information as well as other information. The following sections describe some of the ways in which we may collect information:
Registration and Use
We may provide you with the opportunity to register or subscribe with us. If you register or subscribe, you may provide information to us and we collect a wide variety of information about you. Such information may include personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, IP address UDID or other applicable device identifier, demographic and biographical information and other information. When you use the Service to submit content, we will collect any personally identifiable information that may be included therein (such as your likeness), as well as a variety of meta data associated with the particular content file (such as creation data, originating software application, location data, and the like).
Like many websites, we may automatically gather certain information about our Service traffic and store it in log files. We may also use third parties to gather such information. This information may include IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/ exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
Information from Linked Accounts.
The Service may enable you to link your account on the Service with your account on certain third party services (such as Facebook or Twitter) ("Linked Accounts"), and we may obtain information, including personal information, from such Linked Accounts. By linking a third party Linked Account to your account on the Service, Upbis will have access to certain information on your Linked Account. Information from Linked Accounts that may be accessed and stored includes profile information, friends lists, and other information you have access to through your Linked Account, for example your Facebook friends' listed interests, in each case provided that you and such other users have configured such accounts to make such information available to third parties in this manner.
Web Beacons (Clear GIFs, Pixel Tags)
We may employ and our third party partners may employ a software technology called web beacons, also referred to as clear GIFs or pixel tags, that help manage content on the Service by tracking what content is effective. Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of users in order to further personalize our Service for our users and to collect a limited set of information about our users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We also may include web beacons in advertisements or promotional or other e-mail messages or to determine whether messages have been opened or acted upon. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
How we use your information
We may send you information on products, services, special deals, and promotions. We may also use your name and email address to send newsletters to you. We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our Service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email.
We may communicate with you in response to your inquiries and to manage your account. We may communicate with you by email or telephone.
We may store information that we collect through cookies, log files, web beacons, and/or third party sources to create a "profile" of your preference and activities. We may tie your personally identifiable information to information in the profile, in order to improve and customize our Service and provide tailored promotions and marketing offers for you. We may purchase marketing data from third parties and add it to our existing user database, to better target our advertising and to provide pertinent offers in which we think you would be interested. To enrich our profiles, we may tie this information to the personally identifiable information we have.
Aggregate Information (Non-Personally Identifiable)
We may share aggregated demographic information about our user base with our partners and advertisers. We may combine non-personal information we collect with additional non-personal information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. This information does not identify individual users and may be used to develop the Service and to target content and advertising.
Third Party Advertisers
We may share your personal information with our authorized service providers that may be associated with us to perform functions on our behalf. These functions may include providing customer service, performing business and marketing analysis, supporting and improving the functionality of our Service, and providing or maintaining contests, surveys and other features offered through our Service. These service providers may have access to information about you, including personally identifiable information, that they need to perform their functions.
We reserve the right to, and you acknowledge and agree that we may, disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe, in our sole discretion, that disclosure is reasonable to protect our or a third party's rights; to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us or the Service; to assist in investigation, prosecution, prevention, or taking other action regarding illegal activity, fraud or other wrongdoing, or suspected illegal activity, fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect a user's or a third party's health or safety, such as when harm or violence against any person (including you) is threatened; or in connection with an actual or proposed corporate transaction, such as a merger, acquisition, consolidation, asset sale, divestiture, or insolvency proceeding involving all or part of our business or assets.
Links to Other websites
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13, and if we become aware that we have obtained personal information from users under the age of 13, we will purge such information from our database.
In the Event of Merger or Sale:
In the event that all or a portion of Upbis or its assets is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, regardless of the form or circumstances underlying such transaction, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from users in connection with such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.

- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;

- A description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Upbis site, with enough detail that we may find it on the website (in most circumstances, we will need a URL);

THE SERVICE AND THE CONTENT ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. YOU AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE AND THE CONTENT SHALL BE AT YOUR SOLE RISK. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, UPBIS, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUIET ENJOYMENT OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE, IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE, THE CONTENT, AND YOUR USE THEREOF. UPBIS MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE SERVICE OR THE CONTENT AND ASSUMES NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY (I) ERRORS, MISTAKES, OR INACCURACIES, (II) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF OUR SERVICE OR THE CONTENT, (III) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SECURE SERVERS, (IV) ANY INTERRUPTION OR CESSATION OF TRANSMISSION TO OR FROM OUR SERVICE, (IV) ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, TIME-BOMBS, WORMS, CANCELBOTS, TROJAN HORSES, OR THE LIKE WHICH MAY BE TRANSMITTED TO OR THROUGH OUR SERVICE OR THE CONTENT BY ANY THIRD PARTY, AND/OR (V) ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN ANY CONTENT OR FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRED AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF ANY CONTENT TRANSMITTED, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE VIA THE SERVICE.

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Upbis, its officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected to (i) any User Content you submit to the Service, (ii) your access to or use of the Service, or the Content, or (iii) your violation of these Terms of Service.
Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT SHALL UPBIS, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, OR AGENTS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF USE, OR COSTS OF OBTAINING SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES) ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE SERVICE, OR ANY CONTENT, WHETHER BASED UPON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF UPBIS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR LOSSES.
IN NO EVENT SHALL UPBIS' AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT IN ANY WAY RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE SERVICE, OR ANY CONTENT EXCEED ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS ($100). THIS LIMITATION IS CUMULATIVE AND NOT PER CLAIM.
APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIABILITIES, OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT UPBIS WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO OFFER THE SERVICE TO YOU ON AN ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE BASIS WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.
These Terms of Service will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns, provided that you may not assign or transfer these Terms of Service, by operation of law or otherwise, without Upbis' prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms of Service, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Upbis may freely assign these Terms of Service.
No class actions. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
If you have any questions about these Terms of Service, please contact Upbis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
