The Matboard Terms Of Use.

Welcome to The Matboard! The Matboard is an online service that allows you to create online collections of bookmarked images. Users can organize, share and inspire creative work created by yourself or found on the web. The Matboard lets you create your own visual collections or "Matboards," and view and follow other Matboards, on TheMatboard.com (the "Site"), and through third party applications. We call the services available on the Site, whether accessed directly, or such third party applications, the "Service(s)."

The Matboard Service is provided by Matchstick Media LLC., however, we will refer to our company and Service as "The Matboard" in order to make things simple. By accessing or using The Matboard Service, you agree to be bound by these Terms, The Matboard Terms of Use, and by our Privacy Policy, whether or not you are a registered user of our Service. These Terms apply to all visitors, registered users, and others who access the Service ("Users"). Please read these Terms of use, and email us at support@TheMatboard.com if you have any questions.

1. User's Acknowledgment and Acceptance of Terms
The Matboard ("Us" or "We") provides the TheMatboard.com site and various related services (collectively, the "site") to you, the user, subject to your compliance with all the terms, conditions, and notices contained or referenced herein (the "Terms of Use"), as well as any other written agreement between us and you. In addition, when using particular services or materials on this site, users shall be subject to any posted rules applicable to such services or materials that may contain terms and conditions in addition to those in these Terms of Use. All such guidelines or rules are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms of Use.
BY USING THIS SITE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF USE. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THE THESE TERMS OF USE, PLEASE EXIT THE SITE NOW. YOUR REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THIS SITE, OR ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES, CONTENT, OR OTHER INFORMATION AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THIS SITE, IS TO STOP USING THE SITE AND/OR THOSE PARTICULAR PRODUCTS OR SERVICES. YOUR AGREEMENT WITH US REGARDING COMPLIANCE WITH THESE TERMS OF USE BECOMES EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY UPON COMMENCEMENT OF YOUR USE OF THIS SITE.

These Terms of Use are effective as of 04-15-12. We expressly reserve the right to change these Terms of Use from time to time without notice to you. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this site and these Terms of Use from time to time and to familiarize yourself with any modifications. Your continued use of this site after such modifications will constitute acknowledgement of the modified Terms of Use and agreement to abide and be bound by the modified Terms of Use.

As used in these Terms of Use, references to our "Affiliates" include our owners, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, officers, directors, suppliers, partners, sponsors, and advertisers, and includes (without limitation) all parties involved in creating, producing, and/or delivering this site and/or its contents.

2. Description of Services
We make various services available on this site including, but not limited to, allowing you to mat and post content on the Service, including design work, photography, videography and other creative work, and other like items. You are responsible for providing, at your own expense, all equipment necessary to use the services. We reserve the sole right to either modify or discontinue the site, including any of the site’s features, at any time with or without notice to you. We will not be liable to you or any third party should we exercise such right.

Please remember that the The Matboard Service is a public platform, and that other Users may search for, see, use, and/or re-mat any User Content that you make publicly available through the Service. Subject to any applicable account settings you select, you grant us a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide license to use, display, reproduce, re-mat, modify (e.g., re-format), re-arrange, and distribute your User Content on The Matboard for the purposes of operating and providing the Service(s) to you and to our other Users. Nothing in these Terms shall restrict The Matboard's rights under separate licenses to User Content.

The Matboard provides a creative and positive place for you to discover and share creative work you love. To keep it that way, we ask that you review and agree to abide by The Matboard Terms of Use. We must also insist that you only use our Service in a manner that is consistent with the The Matboard's Use Policy, also referred to as "Our Rules". We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to remove User Content from the Service for any reason, including User Content that we believe violates these Terms or the The Matboard Use Policy (Our Rules).

The Matboard values and 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 the Service does not and will not violate any law or infringe the rights of any third party, including without limitation any Intellectual Property Rights (defined below), publicity rights or rights of privacy. You are in the best position to know if the creative work you post is legally allowed. We therefore ask that you please be careful when deciding whether to make User Content available on our Service, including whether you should mat or re-mat User Content on your boards.

Any new features that augment or enhance the then-current services on this site shall also be subject to these Terms of Use.
