Limits on Using Our Intellectual Property
If you use content covered by intellectual property rights that we have and make available in the Services (for example, images, designs, videos, or sounds we provide that you add to content you create or share on BidMyCrib), we retain all rights to that content. We also own any content that is created by our Services. You may not use our copyrights or trademarks (or any similar marks) unless we have given you written permission to do so. You may not modify, create derivative works of, decompile, or otherwise attempt to extract source code from us.
It is important that you understand your rights and responsibilities with regard to the content on the Services, including any content you provide or post. You are expressly prohibited from posting inappropriate content. While using the Services, you will have access to: (i) content that you upload or provide while using the Services (“Your Content”); (ii) content that other users upload or provide while using the Services (“Member Content”); and (iii) content that BidMyCrib provides, or that is otherwise generated or created, on and through the Services (“Our Content”). In this agreement, “content” includes, without limitation, all text, images, video, audio, or other material on the Services, including information on users’ profiles and listings, and in direct messages between users.
You are responsible for Your Content. Don’t share anything that you wouldn’t want others to see, that would violate this Agreement, or that may expose you or us to legal liability. You are solely responsible and liable for Your Content, and, therefore, you agree to indemnify, defend, release, and hold us harmless from any claims made in connection with Your Content. You represent and warrant to us that the information you provide to us or any other user is accurate, including any information submitted through BidMyCrib or other third-party sources (if applicable), and that you will update your account information as necessary to ensure its accuracy.
The content included on your individual profile should be relevant to the intended use of the Services. You may not display any banking or financial information, whether in relation to you or any other person. If you choose to reveal any sensitive information about yourself to other users, you do so at your own risk. We encourage you to use caution in disclosing any sensitive information online.
Your profile and any listing information will be visible to other people around the world, so be sure that you are comfortable sharing Your Content before you post. You acknowledge and agree that Your Content may be viewed by other users, and, notwithstanding these Terms, other users may share Your Content with third parties. By uploading Your Content, you represent and warrant to us that you have all necessary rights and licenses to do so and automatically grant us a license to use Your Content as provided under Section 7 below.
You understand and agree that we may monitor or review Your Content, and we have the right to remove, delete, edit, limit, or block or prevent access to any of Your Content at any time in our sole discretion. Furthermore, you understand and agree that we have no obligation to display or review Your Content.
While you will have access to Member Content, it is not yours and you may not copy or use Member Content for any purpose except as contemplated by these Terms. Other users will also share content on the Services. Member Content belongs to the user who posted the content and is stored on our servers and displayed at the direction of that user. You do not have any rights in relation to Member Content, and you may only use Member Content to the extent that your use is consistent with the Services’ purpose. You may not copy Member Content or use Member Content for commercial purposes, to spam, to harass, or to make unlawful threats. We reserve the right to terminate your account if you misuse Member Content.
BidMyCrib owns all other content on, or created as a result of, the Services. Any text, content, graphics, user interfaces, trademarks, logos, sounds, artwork, images, and other intellectual property appearing on the Services is owned, controlled or licensed by us and protected by copyright, trademark and other intellectual property law rights. All rights, title, and interest in and to Our Content remains with us at all times. We grant you a limited, non-exclusive license to access and use Our Content as provided under Section 6 below, and we reserve all other rights.
For as long as you comply with these Terms and you have an active account, BidMyCrib grants you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable, non-exclusive, revocable, and non-sublicensable license to access and use the Services for purposes as intended by BidMyCrib and permitted by these Terms and applicable laws.
You grant us the right to use Your Content as provided in this Agreement. By creating an account, you grant to BidMyCrib a worldwide, perpetual, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free right and license to host, store, use, copy, display, reproduce, adapt, edit, publish, translate, modify, and distribute Your Content, including any information you authorize us to access from BidMyCrib or other third-party source (if applicable), in whole or in part, and in any format or medium currently known or developed in the future. BidMyCrib’s license to Your Content shall be non-exclusive, except that BidMyCrib’s license shall be exclusive with respect to derivative works created through use of the Services. For example, BidMyCrib would have an exclusive license to screenshots of the Services that include Your Content.
In addition, so that BidMyCrib can prevent the use of Your Content outside of the Services, you authorize BidMyCrib to act on your behalf with respect to infringing uses of Your Content taken from the Services by other users or third parties. This expressly includes the authority, but not the obligation, to send notices pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3) (i.e., DMCA Takedown Notices) on your behalf if Your Content is taken and used by third parties outside of the Services. BidMyCrib is not obligated to take any action with regard to use of Your Content by other users or third parties. BidMyCrib’s license to Your Content is subject to your rights under applicable law (for example, laws regarding personal data protection to the extent the content contains personal information as defined by those laws).
In consideration for BidMyCrib allowing you to use the Services, you agree that we, our affiliates, and our third-party partners may place advertising on the Services. By submitting suggestions or feedback to BidMyCrib regarding the Services, you agree that BidMyCrib may use and share such feedback for any purpose without compensating you.
You agree that BidMyCrib may access, preserve, and disclose your account information, including Your Content, if required to do so by law or upon a good faith belief that such access, preservation, or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (i) comply with legal process; (ii) enforce these Terms; (iii) respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third parties; (iv) respond to your requests for customer service; or (v) protect the rights, property or personal safety of the Company or any other person.
You may have the opportunity to purchase products and services from BidMyCrib. BidMyCrib may offer these products and services for purchase via credit card or other payment processors on our websites and apps (“Internal Purchases”).
Internal Purchases are processed using the Payment Method you provide on our websites or apps. If you make an Internal Purchase, you agree to pay the prices displayed to you for the Services you’ve selected as well as any sales or similar taxes that may be imposed on your payments (and as may change from time to time), and you authorize BidMyCrib to charge the payment method you provide (your “Payment Method”). BidMyCrib may correct any billing errors or mistakes even if we have already requested or received payment. If you initiate a chargeback or otherwise reverse a payment made with your Payment Method, BidMyCrib may terminate your account immediately in its sole discretion, on the basis that you have determined that you do not want to use the Services. In the event that your chargeback or other payment reversal is overturned, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We reserve the right to make use of any personal, technological, legal, or other means available to enforce the Terms, at any time without liability and without the obligation to give you prior notice, including, but not limited to, preventing you from accessing the Services.

Arbitration, Class-action Waiver, and Jury Waiver
If you pursue a legal claim against BidMyCrib, you agree to arbitration (with limited exceptions).
Utah law and the Federal Arbitration Act will apply if there is a dispute (except where prohibited by law). Except where our arbitration agreement is prohibited by law, the laws of the State of Utah, excluding Utah’s conflict of laws rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Arbitration Agreement above shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. For the avoidance of doubt, the choice of Utah governing law shall not supersede any mandatory consumer protection legislation in such jurisdictions.
Any claims that are not submitted to arbitration for any reason must be litigated in Utah County, Utah (except for claims brought in small claims court, or where prohibited by law). Except for claims that may be properly brought in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction in the county or other jurisdiction in which you reside or in Utah County, Utah, all claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement, to the Services, or to your relationship with BidMyCrib that for whatever reason are not submitted to arbitration will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of Utah County, Utah, U.S.A.

You agree to indemnify BidMyCrib if a claim is made against BidMyCrib due to your actions. You agree, to the extent permitted under applicable law, to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless BidMyCrib, our affiliates, and their and our respective officers, directors, agents, and employees from and against any and all complaints, demands, claims, damages, losses, costs, liabilities, and expenses, including attorney’s fees, due to, arising out of, or relating in any way to your access to or use of the Services, Your Content, your conduct toward other users, or your breach of this Agreement.
