Indiewalls Terms of Use

This is a legal agreement, by and between you ("You" or "you") may be either an individual or an entity and Indiewalls, LLC ("Indiewalls"), governing Your use of the services offered by Indiewalls (the "Services"). Indiewalls and You may be referred to in these Terms of Use (the "Agreement") as the "Parties." In addition, when using specific services, You will be subject to any guidelines, policies, rules or additional terms including separate license agreements ("Separate Agreement") applicable to those services which Indiewalls may provide or communicate to You or post from time to time on its website ("Website"). Unless otherwise set forth in a Separate Agreement, the terms of the Separate Agreement shall control any conflict between these Terms and the Separate Agreement. These guidelines, policies, rules or additional terms are considered included as part of this Agreement. Indiewalls reserves the right to amend this Agreement from time to time and will post material changes to this Agreement on the Website. If You continue to use the Services once Indiewalls has published the changes to the Agreement, You will be deemed to have accepted those changes.

Please read all these terms carefully. By accessing or using the Website, or creating an account, you acknowledge that you have read, understand and agree, without limitation or qualification, to be bound by this Agreement, which includes our privacy policy. Additionally, before You create an account or register to use the Services, you must check the box marked "I have read, and agree to, the Agreement" and click "CONTINUE" to complete the registration process. If You do not accept the terms and conditions of the Agreement, please do not use the Website, create an account or register for the Services.

The Parties agree as follows:

Simply put,

By using Indiewalls, you agree to our terms below.


Description of Services

(a) As an artist (“Artist”), offer original or print works of art (“Works”) for potential sale to Clients as described further herein and for view and purchase by other users of the Website and/or submit images, concepts or proposals for review and consideration in response to a Work Request ("Work Proposal").

(b) As a client (“Client”), purchase Works; create a Works Request and/or arrange with Indiewalls to purchase artworks for your premises.

(c) As a general user ("User"), access and use our Website.

Basically,

Our website makes selling and buying art possible.


Right to Use Service

1. Use of the Services may be suspended at any time in Indiewalls’ sole discretion or for violations of the requirements listed in this Agreement. You acknowledge that the Website contains intellectual property and proprietary rights including without limitation copyrightable works, trademark, trade dress and service mark rights ("Indiewalls IP") which is the property of Indiewalls or its licensors, and which may not be copied, reproduced, modified, distributed, publicly displayed or otherwise used by You without prior written consent from Indiewalls.

To sum it up,

We’re excited you want to use our site, but if you ignore this agreement, you may not be able to use it.


Submitting Work Request and Purchasing Works

Here’s the deal on buying art on our site,

1. Clients may purchase Works directly from the Website and/or create and launch a request for Works by creating and submitting a proposal for works of art (“Work Request”) and following the other instructions on the Website. Unless otherwise set forth herein, all Works are deemed accepted within five (5) days of delivery of the Work.

You can buy the art you see on the site and if you don’t see what you want, just ask!

2. The Work Request must clearly specify the requirements for the Work, such that Artists know the criteria and specifications by which Client will ultimately select the Work. Work Requests may include (i) the contemplated license fee; (ii) the number of Works required; (iii) the intended use or location of the Work; (iv) time requirements; (v) confidentiality requirements; and (vi) other special considerations.

Please be clear about what you are looking for.

3. By submitting a Work Request, Client agrees to be bound by the terms of the sale or license of the accepted Work Proposal. Client will be able to review Work Proposals submitted in response to a Work Request and select a Work Proposal submitted by an Artist. Client is not required to select any Work Proposal as a result of submitting a Work Request and reviewing Work Proposals. However, if Client selects a Work Proposal, Client must enter into and be bound by the terms of sale or license for the Works resulting from the selected Work Proposal.

You obviously don’t have to buy anything until you find what you want.

4. Client may not: (i) use Works available on the Website if they have not entered into a contract for sale or license for a specific Work; (ii) allow or request Artists to submit a Work Proposal to Client via any means other than the Website; (iii) collude with an Artist in anyway that is outside the scope of this Agreement. For example, Client can not submit a Work Proposal on the Website and then separately contract with an Artist to avoid paying fees and charges to Indiewalls.

To be fair, you have to buy the works before you use them. And please don’t contact the artist directly in order to avoid paying Indiewalls. That would be unfair.

5. Client acknowledges that Indiewalls reserves the right in its sole discretion to (i) suspend a Client account; (ii) remove a Work Request if it has been inactive for a period of time, (iii) limit or exclude Work Proposals submitted in response to a Work Request; (iv) upon notification to Client change details of a Work Request; (v) unless separately acknowledged and agreed by Client and Indiewalls, Indiewalls is not responsible for the structural or aesthetic integrity of the Work; and (vi) Indiewalls make no guarantee that the Work or completion of a Work Proposal will be available for purchase or available for the original terms (including price). Client further acknowledges and agrees Indiewalls does not warrant and will not investigate the origin of or ownership rights in Work Proposals or Works posted by any party.

We’ll need to do some site maintenance from time to time, but it’s for the good of the many. And we’ll do our best to let you know about any changes.

6. If Client purchases Work that is directly produced by Indiewalls, the Work will have a one year warranty for any manufacturing issue. Any issues with respect to an alleged mismatch of aesthetic for a Work directly produced by Indiewalls must be raised within thirty (30) days from the time of delivery of the Work. Indiewalls does not guarantee that such mismatch will be rectified, but will use reasonable efforts to correct any purported mismatch. Issues not raised within thirty (30) days from the time of delivery will be deemed waived.

We can’t promise that the artwork you buy will be perfect, but we’ll definitely try. If you have any issues, just let us know within 30 days and we will try and fix the problem.

If we created the artwork and you find a manufacturing issue, let us know within one year of purchasing and we’ll do our best to help you out.


Artist

Artists, this is mostly for you,

1. As an Artist, you may (i) submit Works to Indiewalls for posting on the Website, which, at the sole discretion of Indiewalls, may be made available for purchase to third party users of the Website (“Client (cover submit but not sell”) pursuant to commercial terms that You provide to Indiewalls relating to the Works at the time you post such Work; and/or (ii) respond to a Work Request by submitting a Work Proposal for review and consideration by a Client.

You can post your artwork directly to the site and pitch your artwork to client requests.

2. Artist acknowledges and agrees that (i) Indiewalls provides no guarantee that provision of the Services or usage of the Website will result in any agreements or engagements between You and any other party or sale of Your Work. Clients are not obligated to accept any Work Proposal that you may submit in response to a Work Request or purchase any Works otherwise offered for sale or license on the Website by you; (ii) you will not contact Clients or provide information for Clients to contact you outside of the Website; (iii) the contents of your Work Proposal will comply with the terms of the Work Request; (iv) your Work Proposal is not deemed accepted until an agreement has been signed between you and the Client. To be clear, until your Work Proposal has been accepted by a Client, Indiewalls and the Client are not obligated to make any purchase or pay any fees to you even if you choose to complete the Work; (v) Indiewalls may in its sole discretion add or remove your Works and/or Work Proposals from the Website; (vi) Indiewalls provides the Services as an independent contractor to You, other users and Clients. Provision of such Services in no way gives rise to an agency or other fiduciary relationship between Indiewalls and any user of the Website or its Services, including Artists and Clients; (vii) unless expressly agreed to in writing by Indiewalls, Indiewalls shall not be a party to any agreement reached between You and any other party, including Artists and Clients through provision of the Services; (viii) Indiewalls does not warrant and will not investigate the origin of or ownership rights in Works or Work Proposals posted by any party; (ix) Indiewalls will not take legal, equitable, constructive, or physical possession of or establish control or custody over any Work.

We want you to sell your artwork on our site, but we can’t guarantee it.

We’ll also be making changes to the website and the items you put on it from time to time, but it’s for the best! We’ll do what we can to keep you in the know.

Lastly, please don’t contact clients directly in order to avoid paying Indiewalls. That would be unfair.

3. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the rare instance when Indiewalls does agree to willingly and knowingly accept physical possession of a Work for the purpose of exhibiting or selling the Work, which must be separately acknowledged in each case by Indiewalls, Indiewalls agrees to be responsible for the value of the Work, up to the value reasonably provided for in the Required Terms of Sale. Such acceptance of possession, by Indiewalls or its agents, shall create a priority in favor of the Artist over the claims, liens, or security interests of Indiewalls’ creditors. Indiewalls will not be deemed to have taken physical possession of any Work simply by providing shipping information or assistance or otherwise providing the Service.

Once in a while,

We may want to exhibit your work, so we’ll make a separate agreement for that.

4. All Works must be offered at the fair market value for your Work. The sales price for a Work must be based upon the sales price of similar works by You or other artists in the same medium, geographical area, and level of recognition and Your Work must be offered for sale at the same price or lower than the price of the Work if offered outside of the Website. You are responsible for updating the pricing of your Work and shall honor original pricing for a Work if you have not updated it on the Website.

At the end of the day,

Set a fair price for your work. Don’t charge a higher price for work that’s available for less somewhere else.

5. The main focus of the Website is to facilitate the sale of Works between Artists and Clients. In limited circumstances, Indiewalls may in its sole discretion, agree to display works of art. If Indiewalls decides to display works of art, we will provide You with a sample agreement or other documents relating to transactions between artists and persons that agree to display works of art. Such sample agreements or documents are intended for informational purposes only. Any Display Agreement should only be reached after consultation with an attorney and after thorough consideration by the parties. Indiewalls does not provide legal advice to You by providing sample agreements and/or other documents or information. You further acknowledge that laws vary from state to state, and therefore it would be unreasonable to rely upon any sample documents, as such documents cannot take into consideration variations in each state’s law.

Once in a while, we may want to exhibit your work, so we’ll make a separate agreement for that.

You agree to take reasonable security precautions to protect Your password and account for the Services, and if You are an entity, those of all Your personnel. These precautions shall be at least as great as the precautions that You take to protect Your own property, but in no event less than commercially reasonable and prudent care. You are responsible for all access to and use of the Service through Your account and password, including access of any services for which the use results in monetary charges, whether or not You have knowledge of or authorize such access and use. You will notify Indiewalls immediately of any unauthorized use of Your account or password, or any other security breach of which You are aware.

In general,

Services and Website Access

Fundamentally,

Make sure you have your own internet access, computer, mobile phone and any other devices necessary to view our website.

1. In order to use the Services, You must obtain access to the World Wide Web, either directly or through devices that access web-based content, and pay any service fees associated with such access. You must provide all equipment necessary to make such connection to the World Wide Web, including a computer and modem or other access device.

2. Indiewalls uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the Services will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, there will be occasions when the Services will be interrupted for maintenance or upgrades, and for emergency repairs or due to failure of telecommunications links and equipment that are beyond the control of Indiewalls. Indiewalls will use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize such disruption where it is within the reasonable control of Indiewalls.


Intellectual Property Rights, Communications, Comments and other Content

Seriously though,

We know how important intellectual property is, which is why we have this section:

1. The Website and Services contains areas for you to post Works, submit Work Proposals or Work Requests, submit comments and other content, and message or communication facilities to enable you to communicate with other users ("User Content"). Subject to any agreements or licenses to the contrary, You retain all rights in, and are solely responsible for your User Content. You acknowledge that your User Content may become available to others on the Website and elsewhere. You agree to post only User Content that is appropriate for general audiences and not confidential or private and that all necessary releases and clearances (e.g. moral rights consents, model or location releases) are obtained with respect to your Work.

You can post comments, submit content or message others on our website, but remember the information is public, so please keep it clean.

Make sure you have all the rights you need to display, post, or sell your work.

2. You hereby grant a worldwide, royalty free, irrevocable, perpetual license to Indiewalls to use, reproduce, display, and prepare derivatives of User Content in any form throughout the world and in any media, alone or with other works for Indiewalls’ promotional purposes (such as by placing advertisements on third party websites) and for the purpose of providing the Website and Services including, without limitation, posting the Works for sale to Clients or posting Work Requests for Artists. Indiewalls shall not display or use Your Work without attribution to You. You hereby provide such consent to any use or display of the Work, in any manner whatsoever, by Indiewalls.

Don’t worry,

You still own your artwork. We just need a license from you to display and market it.

3. In connection with use of the Services, certain non-public and proprietary information may be disclosed to You. Such information will be designated as confidential by the terms posted on the Website or Work Request, or may consist of information which, given its nature or the circumstances surrounding its disclosure, reasonably should be considered as confidential ("Confidential Information"). Confidential Information includes, without limitation, information regarding proprietary structures, functions or designs of Indiewalls’ Website, and information (such as information in a Work Request) provided to You by other Artists or Clients (each, a "Disclosing User") which should reasonably be considered as confidential. You hereby agree to adhere to and comply with the following covenants (i) not to directly or indirectly divulge, disclose or publish the Confidential Information to any person or entity outside of Indiewalls or the Disclosing User (other than Your agents or contractors who need to know the Confidential Information to perform services for or on Your behalf, provided that You are fully responsible for any breach of confidentiality by such agents and contractors), or otherwise use the Confidential Information in a manner detrimental to Indiewalls or the Disclosing User for any purpose other than as expressly permitted herein or without prior written consent of the disclosing party; (ii) to receive and treat the Confidential Information, in whatever form delivered to You as a result of this Agreement, on a confidential and restricted basis and to take precautions to prevent the unauthorized disclosure and/or use of such Confidential Information (including, without limitation, similar precautions as taken by You to protect Your own confidential information); and (iii) to return or destroy the Confidential Information, including all copies and records thereof, to the Disclosing User promptly upon receipt of a written request.

Au fond;

Some of the information you learn may be confidential and it needs to stay that way, so please don’t share it with your entire social network.


Prohibited Conduct

1. In addition to your obligations stated elsewhere in these terms, you also agree that the following actions are prohibited and a material breach of these terms. By way of example and not limitation, you agree that you will not:

  1. use the Services for any unlawful purposes;
  2. reuse, reproduce, copy, disseminate or otherwise use the Works of others or their Confidential Information without having first properly obtained permission to do so;
  3. submit to the Website or otherwise cause to be disseminated in relation to the Services any information, including without limitation copyrightable works, trademarks, trade dress and service marks, which is the property of any third party ("Third Party IP") without the requisite permission or license granted by that third party, nor otherwise violate any rights of any third party through use of the Website or the Services;
  4. use personal information of other users for any purpose other than in communications or actions in furtherance of or related to the Services;
  5. interfere with or disrupt (or attempt to interfere with or disrupt) the Services or servers or networks connected to the Services, or to disobey any requirements, procedures, policies or regulations of networks connected to the Services;
  6. provide any information to Indiewalls that is false or misleading, that attempts to hide Your identity or that You do not have the right to disclose;
  7. defame, abuse, harass, stalk, threaten or otherwise violate the privacy or publicity rights of others, or impersonate anyone else or misrepresent your identity or affiliation;
  8. publish, post, upload, distribute or disseminate any inappropriate, profane, defamatory, pornographic, offensive, infringing, obscene, indecent or unlawful topic, name, material, content or information;
  9. use the Website or Services to make available unsolicited advertising or promotional materials, spam, pyramid schemes, chain letters, or similar forms of unauthorized advertising or solicitation, or hack or violate any security measures; or
  10. engage in any other action that, in our judgment, exposes us or any third party to potential liability or detriment of any type.

Altogether,

Be reasonable with what you post on our website because everyone can see it (and it might also be illegal), so no pornography, harassing comments or spam.


Digital Millennium Copyright Act

1. We may, in our sole discretion, disable and/or terminate use by users who infringe the intellectual property of others. If you believe that any material contained on the Website infringes your copyright, please notify Indiewalls of your claim in accordance with the following procedure. Indiewalls will process notices of alleged infringement which it receives and will take appropriate actions as required by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the "DMCA") and other applicable intellectual property laws. Pursuant to the DMCA, notifications of claimed copyright infringement should be sent to Indiewalls' Designated Agent: Gavriel Wolf dmca@indiewalls.com, Subject Line: Indiewalls DMCA. To be effective, the notification must be in writing and contain the following information (DMCA, 17 U.S.C. §512(c)(3)): (i) 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 work claimed to have been infringed; (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 Indiewalls to locate the material; (iv) information reasonably sufficient to permit Indiewalls to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted; (v) a statement that the complaining party has 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; (vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. E-mails sent to dmca@indiewalls.com without a proper subject line, or for purposes other than communication about copyright claims, may not be acknowledged or responded to.

Pretty much,

If you think your Copyright is being infringed, send us an email with all the details to dmca@indiewalls.com.


Payment Service Terms

1. Indiewalls shall receive a commission of 40% of the sale price of each of Your Works which is sold to a Client. Indiewalls may also charge a Client certain fees for Indiewall services, such as consultations, customization of RFPs; these fees are available on the Website. In the event of a potential licensing arrangement, Indiewalls will consult with the Artist prior to the licensing of any Works to a Client. The licensing fee paid to the Artist upon a sale to the purchaser will be based on a mutually agreed upon amount in a case by case basis.

2. You agree and acknowledge that sale of the Works shall be effected by Indiewalls according to the Required Terms of Sale. You further acknowledge that Indiewalls is not in receipt of funds provided by a Client in connection with the sale of a Work unless and until that Work is received and accepted by said Client. Any funds received by the Client prior to the time of such receipt and acceptance are not deemed to be funds received in connection with the sale of any Work.

3. Within thirty (30) days of the acceptance of a Work by a Client, and according to the payment of proceeds terms agreed to by the Parties, Indiewalls shall submit to You or Your third party designated agent, if applicable, Your portion of the proceeds of such sale (sales price, less shipping and taxes, if applicable, and Indiewalls’ commission) or agreed upon fee for licensing of Works.

4. Indiewalls may require You to maintain an account with a third party designated agent (such as PayPal) for electronic payment of the proceeds of the sale of Your Works. You acknowledge and agree that Indiewalls’ payment obligations hereunder cease upon submission of the owed funds to You or any such designated agent, and that any failure to remit payment to You by Your designated agent is not the responsibility of, nor does it give rise to any liability on the part of, Indiewalls. You expressly release Indiewalls from any such liability. Furthermore, unless expressly agreed to in writing by Indiewalls, Indiewalls shall not be a party to any agreement reached between You and any such designated agent.

5. You will be responsible for payment of all taxes owing in connection with Your sale of Work unless otherwise stated. It is the responsibility of the Artist to inquire as to whether taxes are paid by Indiewalls.

When you get right down to it,

We are all about helping artists and clients come together to make the world a more creative place.

There are two major things you need to know about the business part of this: One, Indiewalls has a 40/60 split with artists. This means artists keep 60% of whatever sale price they list on our website. Two, if a client wants Indiewalls to handle the creation and fulfillment of projects there are extra fees. We call this Indiewalls Full Service.


Warranty and Indemnification

1. You represent, warrant and covenant that any Work (including any content included in the image) provided for use or display by Indiewalls or a Client will not violate the rights of any third-party, including any copyright, trademark, privacy, or other personal or proprietary rights, and that the image does not contain libelous or otherwise unlawful, abusive or obscene materials, and that Indiewalls, a or Client may use the image without the need to seek or obtain permission or license from any third party.

2. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold Indiewalls, other Artists and Clients and their respective subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, employees, successors, assigns, representatives, partners and licensees harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of 1) Works or other content You submit, post, transmit or otherwise make available through the Services; 2) use of the Services by You or anyone using Your User ID or password; 3) violation of this Agreement by You or anyone using Your User ID or password; or 4) the violation by You of any rights of another, including without limitation rights of privacy or publicity, contractual rights, or any intellectual property right. Other users of the Services, including other Artists and Clients are third party beneficiaries to this Section.

Essentially,

You promise you are responsible for any harm caused to us.


Limitation of Liability

IN NO EVENT SHALL INDIEWALLS, OTHER ARTISTS OR CLIENTS, OR ANY OF THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES OR LICENSEES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, OR FOR ANY DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF THE SERVICES BY YOU, ANY MALFUNCTIONS, DELAYS, LOSS OF DATA, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, INTERRUPTION OF SERVICE OR LOSS OF BUSINESS OR ANTICIPATORY PROFITS, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE EVEN IF INDIEWALLS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OCCURRING. INDIEWALLS SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY WHATSOEVER TO YOU FOR ANY CLAIM RELATING IN ANY WAY TO ANY THIRD PARTY CONTENT OR FEATURE. OTHER USERS OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING OTHER ARTISTS AND CLIENTS ARE THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARIES TO THIS SECTION. THE SOLE REMEDY AVAILABLE TO YOU CONCERNING USE OF THE SERVICES BY YOU IS, AND INDIEWALLS’ ENTIRE LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR ANY CLAIM FOR DAMAGES RELATING TO USE OF THE SERVICES, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AGGREGATE AMOUNT PAID IN CONNECTION WITH THE SPECIFIC SERVICE WHICH IS THE BASIS OF THE CLAIM.

In the simplest terms,

Our liability to you is limited.


Disclaimer of Warranties

THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" BASIS AND INDIEWALLS MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, BY STATUTE OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER ARISING BY COURSE OF DEALING OR PERFORMANCE, CUSTOM, USAGE IN THE TRADE OR PROFESSION OR OTHERWISE, WITH RESPECT TO ANY SERVICES, PRODUCTS, TECHNOLOGY, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, MATERIALS OR INFORMATION PROVIDED HEREUNDER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. ALL SUCH WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ARE HEREBY DISCLAIMED. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU HAVE RELIED ON NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AND THAT NO OTHER REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES HAVE FORMED THE BASIS OF YOUR BARGAIN HEREUNDER. IN ADDITION, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, INDIEWALLS DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTIES FOR THE SECURITY, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, TIMELINESS, AND PERFORMANCE OF THE SERVICES. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THE USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK AND THAT YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE TO YOUR WORKS OR DATA OR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM OR LOSS OF DATA THAT MAY RESULT FROM THE USE OF THE SERVICES BY YOU. SOME STATES OR OTHER JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM STATE TO STATE AND JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION.

Essentially,

Your use of our site is subject to certain disclaimers.


Term and Termination

1. This Agreement shall become effective upon agreement by You and completing the registration process ("Effective Date"), and shall continue in full force and effect until the earlier of the termination of Your user account, or the date this Agreement is terminated ("Term"). If Your account with Indiewalls is not valid or in good standing, You will not be able to use the Services. Indiewalls with or without prior notice, terminate any of the rights granted by these terms. You shall comply immediately with any termination or other notice, including, as applicable, by ceasing all use of the Website and Services.

So,

Once you register we have an agreement, but sometimes things have to end -- especially if you don’t live up to your end of the bargain.

The Parties each irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of New York County, New York for all disputes arising hereunder, including disputes related to sale of Works, and waive any defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, venue or forum nonconveniens.

4. Survival and Severability. Those sections of this Agreement which, by their nature, are intended to survive termination (including disclaimers of warranties, indemnification, and provisions regarding intellectual property rights) shall so survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement. If any provision in this Agreement shall be found or be held to be invalid or unenforceable, then the meaning of said provision shall be considered, to the extent feasible, to render the provision enforceable, and if no feasible interpretation would save such provision, it shall be severed from the remainder of this Agreement which shall remain in full force and effect.

This Agreement is not assignable by You or by operation of law without the express written approval of Indiewalls. Indiewalls may assign this Agreement in whole or in part to any third party. Any assignment or attempt to assign without such written approval shall be void.
