VisibleGains Terms of Service
Last Modified: February 4, 2013
Thank you for using the products provided by VisibleGains. These terms of service (the "Terms") govern your access to and use of VisibleGains, Inc. ("we" or "our") websites and services (the "Services"), including our Postwire service, so please carefully read them before using the Services.
By using the Services you agree to be bound by these Terms.
You may use the Services only in compliance with these Terms. You may use the Services only if you have the power to form a contract with VisibleGains and are not barred under any applicable laws from doing so. The Services may continue to change over time as we refine and add more features. We may stop, suspend, or modify the Services at any time without prior notice to you. We may also remove any content from our Services at our discretion.
Your Materials & Your Privacy
By using our Services you provide us with information, videos, images, files, and folders that you submit to VisibleGains (the "Materials"). You retain full ownership to the Materials. We don't claim any ownership to any of it. These Terms do not grant us any rights to the Materials or intellectual property except for the limited rights that are needed to run the Services, as explained below.
We may need your permission to do things you ask us to do with the Materials, for example, hosting your files, or sharing them at your direction. You give us the permissions we need to do those things solely to provide the Services.
You are solely responsible for your conduct, the content of your Materials, and your communications with others while using the Services. For example, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have the rights or permission needed to comply with these Terms.
VisibleGains has no obligation to monitor you communications through the Services or Materials your post to the Services. We are not responsible for the accuracy, completeness, appropriateness, or legality of files, communications, or any other information you may be able to access or distribute using the Services.
Sharing The Materials
The Services provide features that allow you to share the Materials with others. There are many things that recipients of your Materials may do with the Material (for example, copy it, modify it, re-share it). Please consider carefully what you choose to share. VisibleGains has no responsibility for that activity.
Files and other content in the Services may be protected by intellectual property rights of others. Please do not copy, upload, download, or share files unless you have the right to do so. You, not VisibleGains, will be fully responsible and liable for what you copy, share, upload, download or otherwise use while using the Services. You must not upload spyware or any other malicious software to the Service.
You, and not VisibleGains, are responsible for maintaining and protecting all of the Materials. VisibleGains will not be liable for any loss or corruption of the Materials, or for any costs or expenses associated with backing up or restoring any of the Materials.
If your contact information, or other information related to your account, changes, you must notify us promptly and keep your information current. The Services are not intended for use by you if you are under 13 years of age. By agreeing to these Terms, you are representing to us that you are over 13.
You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the Services and you agree not to disclose your password to any third party. You are responsible for any activity using your account, whether or not you authorized that activity. You should immediately notify VisibleGains of any unauthorized use of your account. You acknowledge that the signup and registration portions of the Service use a secure encrypted connection.

If you choose, some uses of our Services may require the download of software ("Software"). VisibleGains hereby grants you a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable license to use the Software, solely to access the Services. Your license to use the Software is automatically revoked if you violate these Terms in a manner that implicates our intellectual property rights. We hereby reserve all rights not expressly granted in these Terms. You must not reverse engineer or decompile the Software, nor attempt to do so, nor assist anyone else to do so. Our Services may update the Software on your device automatically when a new version is available.

VisibleGains does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for their availability, accuracy, the related content, products, or services. You are solely responsible for your use of any such websites or resources. Also, if we provide you with any software under an open source license, there may be provisions in those licenses that expressly conflict with these Terms, in which case the open source provisions will apply.
The Service is available on a free or a paid basis. If you elect to use the Service on a paid basis, your credit card will be charged the fees set forth on the website for the Service or otherwise agreed by us . We will charge your credit card the same day you initially signed up for the Service in each successive month. Each party shall be responsible for and pay any and all applicable federal, state, local and foreign taxes, duties, tariffs, levies, withholdings and similar assessments (including without limitation, sales taxes, use taxes and value added taxes) resulting from its performance under these Terms.
You can stop using our Services any time. We reserve the right to suspend or end the Services at any time, with or without cause, and with or without notice. If we suspend or terminate your use, we will try to let you know in advance and help you retrieve data, though there may be some cases (for example, repeatedly or flagrantly violating these Terms, a court order, or danger to other users) where we may suspend immediately. If you pay for the Services, you will not receive any refund if you or we terminate your use. If you terminate your paid Services prior to the end of the then current month of your use of the Services, we will not charge you for the next month and you will not have access to the paid Services at any time commencing after the then paid month.
