2. Copyright policy
Collectyv respects the intellectual
property rights of others and we expect people on Collectyv to do the same.
It’s our policy—in appropriate circumstances and at our discretion—to disable
or terminate the accounts of people who repeatedly infringe or are repeatedly
charged with infringing copyrights or other intellectual property rights.
In keeping with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which you can read at the US Copyright Office website, we’ll respond quickly to claims of copyright infringement on Collectyv that are reported to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re a copyright owner or authorized to act on behalf of one, you can report alleged copyright infringements on Collectyv by completing the DMCA Notice of Alleged Infringement and sending it to email@example.com.
When we get your DMCA notice, we’ll take whatever action we think is appropriate, which may include removing the reported content from Collectyv.
If we remove content in response to a DMCA notice, we may notify the person who saved it on Collectyv so they have the opportunity to send a counter-notice. We may also send a complete copy of the notice to others, as appropriate.
We care about the security of our users. While we work to protect the security of your content and account, Collectyv cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat our security measures.

We do not endorse or assume any responsibility for any such third-party sites, information, materials, products, or services.

7. Limitation of liability
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, COLLECTYV SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUES, WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, USE, GOOD-WILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM (A) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE PRODUCTS; (B) ANY CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE PRODUCTS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES; OR (C) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR CONTENT. IN NO EVENT SHALL COLLECTYV’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO THE PRODUCTS EXCEED ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS (U.S. $100.00).
For any dispute you have with Collectyv, you agree to first contact us and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. If Collectyv has not been able to resolve the dispute with you informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein. Unless you and Collectyv agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. Each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules, except that Collectyv will pay for your reasonable filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000 and is non-frivolous (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts for matters related to data security, intellectual property or unauthorized access to the Service. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND COLLECTYV ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
To the extent any claim, dispute or controversy regarding Collectyv or our Products isn’t arbitrable under applicable laws or otherwise: you and Collectyv both agree that any claim or dispute regarding Collectyv will be resolved exclusively in accordance with Clause 11 of these Terms.
9. Governing law and jurisdiction
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. We each agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in San Mateo County, California or the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, for any actions not subject to Section 8 (Arbitration).
10. General terms
Notification procedures and changes to these Terms

By continuing to access or use the Products after revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Products.
These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Collectyv without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Collectyv’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
Collectyv is a worldwide service and our reference to Collectyv in these Terms includes Collectyv Inc. and all of its worldwide subsidiaries. If you live in the United States, these Terms are a contract between you and Collectyv Inc.
