A. Shoplinkz hereby grants you permission to use the Website as set forth in this Terms of Service, provided that without limiting the foregoing, you agree that you will not use our sites to take any of the following actions:
You will otherwise comply with the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service. If you choose a screen name that, in our sole discretion, is obscene, indecent, abusive or that might otherwise subject us to public disparagement or scorn, we reserve the right, without prior notice to you, to automatically change your screen name, delete your posts from our sites, deny you access to our sites, or any combination of these actions. The technology and the software underlying our Website and the Services is the property of Shoplinkz, our affiliates, and our partners.

D. You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, "robots," "spiders," "offline readers," etc., that accesses the Website in a manner that sends more request messages to the Shoplinkz servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line web browser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Shoplinkz grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the site for the sole purpose of creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. Shoplinkz reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases.

A. The Shoplinkz Website may now or in the future permit the submission of text, images, audio, videos, interactive or other communications submitted by you and other users ("User Submissions") and the hosting, sharing, and/or publishing of such User Submissions. You understand that whether or not such User Submissions are published, Shoplinkz does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any submissions.
B. You shall be solely responsible for your own User Submissions and the consequences of posting or publishing them. In connection with User Submissions, you affirm, represent, and/or warrant that: (i) you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorize Shoplinkz to use all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to any and all User Submissions to enable inclusion and use of the User Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Website and these Terms of Service; and (ii) you have the written consent, release, and/or permission of each and every identifiable individual person in the User Submission to use the name or likeness of each and every such identifiable individual person to enable inclusion and use of the User Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Website and these Terms of Service.

However, by submitting the User Submissions to Shoplinkz, you hereby grant Shoplinkz a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the User Submissions in connection with the Shoplinkz Website and Shoplinkz’ (and its successor's) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Shoplinkz Website (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels. You also hereby grant each user of the Shoplinkz Website a non-exclusive license to access your User Submissions through the Website, and to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display and perform such User Submissions as permitted through the functionality of the Website and under these Terms of Service. The foregoing license granted by you terminates once you remove or delete a User Submission from the Shoplinkz Website.
C. In connection with User Submissions, you further agree that you will not:
(i) submit material that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner to post the material and to grant Shoplinkz all of the license rights granted herein;
(ii) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage Shoplinkz or any third party;
(iii) submit material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate;
(iv) post advertisements or solicitations of business:
(v) impersonate another person. Shoplinkz does not endorse any User Submission or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and Shoplinkz expressly disclaims any and all liability in connection with User Submissions. Shoplinkz does not permit copyright infringing activities and infringement of intellectual property rights on its Website, and Shoplinkz will remove all Content and User Submissions if properly notified that such Content or User Submission infringes on another's intellectual property rights. Shoplinkz reserves the right to remove Content and User Submissions without prior notice. Shoplinkz will also terminate a User's access to its Website, if they are determined to be a repeat infringer. A repeat infringer is a User who has been notified of infringing activity more than twice and/or has had a User Submission removed from the Website more than twice. Shoplinkz also reserves the right to decide whether Content or a User Submission is appropriate and complies with these Terms of Service for violations other than copyright infringement and violations of intellectual property law, such as, but not limited to, pornography, obscene or defamatory material, or excessive length. Shoplinkz may remove such User Submissions and/or terminate a User's access for uploading such material in violation of these Terms of Service at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion.
D. In particular, if you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any User Submission or other content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") by providing our Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C 512(c)(3) for further detail):
(i) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
(ii) Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
(iii) Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit Shoplinkz to locate the material;
(iv) Information reasonably sufficient to permit Shoplinkz to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail;
(v) A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
(vi) A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Shoplinkz’ designated Copyright contact to receive notifications of claimed infringement is:Attn: Copyright Dept.

The Website is controlled and offered by Shoplinkz from its facilities in the United States of America. Shoplinkz makes no representations that the Shoplinkz Website is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Shoplinkz Website from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local law.
By participating in Shoplinkz focus groups and answering questionnaires, you are hereby agreeing to the following Shoplinkz User Focus Group Terms. The User agrees that all Confidential Information shall remain the property of Shoplinkz, LLC, and that Shoplinkz, LLC may use such Confidential Information for any purpose without obligation to the User. Nothing contained herein shall be construed as granting or implying any transfer of rights to the User in the Confidential Information, or any patents or other intellectual property protecting or relating to the Confidential Information. All documents used with Users in Focus Groups serve as a guide and questionnaire to conducting a focus group in the hopes of obtaining user feedback and information to support recommended adjustments to the identified system or Web site.
Focus groups are increasingly used by companies to obtain research data and to gather opinions about their perceived products and quality of a service. Part of the advantage of conducting this kind of testing on the Web site would be to determine whether or not users have difficulty completing the process, and whether or not the paths and scenarios are easily understood. Focus group testing is especially useful for exploring the attitudes and experiences associated with the types of offers currently available, as well as their presentation.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Shoplinkz, its parent corporation, officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney's fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Shoplinkz Website; (ii) your violation of any term of these Terms of Service; (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right; or (iv) any claim that one of your User Submissions caused damage to a third party. This defense and indemnification obligation will survive these Terms of Service and your use of the Shoplinkz Website.
You affirm that you are either more than 18 years of age, or an emancipated minor, or possess legal parental or guardian consent, and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set forth in these Terms of Service, and to abide by and comply with these Terms of Service. In any case, you affirm that you are over the age of 13, as the Shoplinkz Website is not intended for children under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use the Shoplinkz Website--there are lots of other great web sites for you. Talk to your parents about what sites are appropriate for you.
These Terms of Service, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Shoplinkz without restriction.
You agree that: (i) the Shoplinkz Website shall be deemed solely based in Arkansas; and (ii) the Shoplinkz Website shall be deemed a passive website that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Shoplinkz, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Arkansas. These Terms of Service shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Arkansas, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. Any claim or dispute between you and Shoplinkz that arises in whole or in part from the Shoplinkz Website shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Pulaski County, Arkansas. These Terms of Service, together with the Privacy Notice at http://www.shoplinkz/privacy/and any other legal notices published by Shoplinkz on the Website, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Shoplinkz concerning the Shopinkz Website. If any provision of these Terms of Service is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms of Service, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any term of this these Terms of Service shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Shoplinkz’ failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

Your use of the Shoplinkz Website following any amendment of these Terms of Service will signify your assent to and acceptance of its revised terms.
