2. Your Content

a. Posting content

TeachTag allows you to post content, including photos, comments, links, and other materials. Anything that you post or otherwise make available on our website or through our Products is referred to as "User Content." You retain all rights in, and are solely responsible for, the User Content you post to TeachTag.

b. How TeachTag and other users can use your content

You grant TeachTag and its users a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide license to use, store, display, reproduce, re-post, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute your User Content on TeachTag solely for the purposes of operating, developing, providing, and using the TeachTag Products. Nothing in these Terms shall restrict other legal rights TeachTag may have to User Content, for example under other licenses. We reserve the right to remove or modify User Content for any reason, including User Content that we believe violates these Terms or our policies.

c. How long we keep your content

Following termination or deactivation of your account, or if you remove any User Content from TeachTag, we may retain your User Content for a commercially reasonable period of time for backup, archival, or audit purposes. Furthermore, TeachTag and its users may retain and continue to use, store, display, reproduce, re-post, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute any of your User Content that other users have stored or shared.

d. Your responsibility for your content

You shall not post User Content that violates or encourages any conduct that violates laws or regulations, including but not limited to laws or regulations applicable to your line of business (if you are an entity) and laws or regulations applicable to advertising. You are responsible for User Content and any third-party content posted on your account, and you represent and warrant that User Content and any third-party content posted on your account comply with all applicable laws and regulations. Except as expressly provided in these Terms, you agree not to use, modify, reproduce, distribute, sell, license, or otherwise use our Products without our permission. TeachTag respects the rights of third party creators and content owners, and expects you to do the same. You therefore agree that any User Content that you post to TeachTag does not and will not violate any law or infringe the rights of any third party.

e. Feedback you provide

We value hearing from our users, and are always interested in learning about ways we can improve our Products. If you choose to submit comments, ideas or feedback, you agree that we are free to use them without any restriction or compensation to you. By accepting your submission, TeachTag does not waive any rights to use similar or related feedback previously known to TeachTag, or developed by its employees, or obtained from sources other than you

8. Disclaimers

The Products and all included content are provided on an "as is" basis without warranty of any kind, whether express or implied.

TEACHTAG SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE.

TeachTag takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any User Content that you or any other user or third party posts or transmits using our Products. You understand and agree that you may be exposed to User Content that is inaccurate, objectionable, inappropriate, or otherwise unsuited to your purpose.

9. Limitation of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, TEACHTAG 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. IN NO EVENT SHALL TEACHTAG'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO THE PRODUCTS EXCEED ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS (U.S. $100.00).

10. Arbitration

For any dispute you have with TeachTag, you agree to first contact us and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. If TeachTag 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 TeachTag 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. 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 TEACHTAG ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.

11. Governing Law and Jurisdiction

These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of Texas, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. We each agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of state and federal courts in Bexar County, Texas for any actions not subject to Section 10 (Arbitration).

Our Products are controlled and operated from the United States, and we make no representations that they are appropriate or available for use in other locations. If you access the Products from outside of the United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for compliance with the laws of your jurisdiction. If you access the Products from outside of the United States, you acknowledge that any personal information you provide will be processed in the United States and you hereby consent to the collection and processing of your personal information in a manner consistent with these Terms and the Privacy Policy.

12. General Terms

Notification Procedures and changes to these Terms. TeachTag reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to you, and you agree to receive legal notices electronically if we so choose. We may revise these Terms from time to time and the most current version will always be posted on our website. We will notify you of changes to these Terms 10 days before the changes become effective. If you do not wish to be bound by the revised Terms, please stop using the Products and/or terminate your account.

Assignment. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by TeachTag without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.

Entire Agreement/Severability. These Terms, together with the Privacy Policy and any additional agreements you may enter into with TeachTag in connection with the Products, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and TeachTag concerning the Products. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid, then that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.

No Waiver. No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and TeachTag's failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

13. LOCAL GOVERNMENT AMENDMENT

For local government agencies, including school districts, that may become a party to these Terms, Section 7 (Indemnity) shall be deleted in its entirety.
