FOLIOLINK SERVICE AGREEMENT

Please read this Service Agreement ("Agreement") carefully, as it sets out the terms and conditions of your use of the FolioLink® service ("the Service").

1. Acceptance of Terms


This Service Agreement ("Agreement") sets out the terms and conditions of your use of the Service, which is a fee-based subscription system that provides you with access to the FolioLink® website and software to let you create, maintain and host your creative content website ("your Site").


By accessing the Service, you agree to be bound by all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Throughout this Agreement, "we" and "us" shall mean InfoSource, Inc., d/b/a ISProductions.

2. Term: Trial Accounts and Subscriptions; Renewal


Trial accounts (“Trial Accounts”) for the Service are available to new users who have not tried the Service before. All eligible users are strongly encouraged to try a Trial Account first because subscription accounts (“Subscriptions”) are NON-REFUNDABLE.


If you have signed up for a Trial Account, the term of this Agreement is seven (7) days from the day you log in to your Trial Account. If you do not use your Trial Account during that period, you are not entitled to an extension or to a new Trial Account.


If you have signed up for a Subscription or have converted to a Subscription from a Trial Account, the term of this Agreement (“Term”) is twelve (12) months. Two weeks before the end of your Term, you will receive a renewal code that you may use to renew your account for an additional Term. If you do not renew your account by the due date provided, your website will become inaccessible. If you choose to renew after your Term has expired, there may be additional fees to revive your account.

3. Termination


You may terminate this Agreement at any time by notifying us in writing. We can terminate this Agreement and your access to the Service at any time, without prior notice, if you materially breach this Agreement.


At the time of termination, you agree to pay any outstanding amounts for the Services. You also agree that we (or our collection service) may charge your credit card for any fees still owed at the time of termination.


 

When your account is terminated, we can remove and/or delete all content on your Site without any obligation to return to you any image, data or other information you previously provided.

4. Payment and Service Fees


By signing up for a Subscription, you agree to be billed in advance for the full twelve (12) month Term.


If your payment cannot be processed or is returned for any reason, including insufficient funds, we reserve the right to immediately suspend and/or terminate your access and account, thereby terminating this Agreement and all obligations to provide the Services.


We have the right to change the amount of and/or basis for determining any fees or charges for Services. We can institute new fees and charges effective upon thirty (30) days’ notice to you prior to the commencement of a Renewal Term.

5. Registration Information


You represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age and you agree that all information you are providing to register for the Service is current and accurate.

If you are dissatisfied with the Service or these Terms and Conditions, your sole remedy is to terminate this Agreement.


Domain Name Registration


At your request ISProductions may register a domain name(s), provided that you represent and warrant to ISProductions that any name you submit to ISProductions for registration and all intellectual property rights therein are owned exclusively by you at the time of the request, or that you have all necessary rights to register such name, and you agree to indemnify ISProductions against all losses incurred by ISProductions as a result of a breach of this warranty. You agree that any domain name ISProductions registers to use as part of your subscription or access to ISProduction's service(s) will be registered using ISProductions as the registrant, administrative, and technical points of contact. This in fact gives ISProductions ownership of the domain name and it allows ISProductions to access the domain records as needed. ISProductions does not see retaining domain names or reselling domain names as a primary business activity. ISProductions regularly transfers domain names to clients who wish to use their domain for another purpose or do not renew their service with ISProductions. However, ISProductions retains the right to retain, transfer, renew or cancel any domain name it manages through its outsourced registrars. Furthermore, ISProductions shall not be responsible for its inability to register, transfer or renew any domain name(s). Clients who wish to transfer their domain to an account they own and manage with their own choice of registrar need to provide that transfer out request in writing at least 21 days before the domain's expiration date to ensure ample time for the transfer process to complete successfully. Unless and until a domain name is transferred to an ISProductions client the domain name shall be considered the property of ISProductions and ISProductions will be the sole recipient of all ICANN regulated notices including expiration and renewal notices.


Intellectual Property


All software programs in the service developed and operated by ISProductions are the property of ISProductions.
You agree not to remove our copyright text or make it hard to read.


You shall not copy, distribute, license, or resell the FolioLink service, designs, templates, or any web site created with The Service without ISProductions' prior written consent.


You may not use ISProductions' name in trademark, trade names or other proprietary identifying symbols without prior written approval.
ISProductions owns all of the right, title and interest in the FolioLink service, the assets included in FolioLink for building, presenting and delivering content and for creating design and template variations, and all derivative works comprised of those assets, including the FolioLink design and template variations that you create, modify, and capture in screen shots using the FolioLink service. You may use only the assets supplied with the FolioLink service to create template variations that will be used in the FolioLink service. All rights not expressly granted herein, are reserved by ISProductions.


With the exception of your uploaded images, MP3s, original text and/or video files created by you outside of the FolioLink service, in exchange for use of the FolioLink service, and to the extent that your contributions through use of the FolioLink service give rise to any copyright interest, you hereby grant ISProductions an exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, fully transferable and sub-licensable worldwide right and license to use your contributions in any way and for any purpose in connection with the FolioLink service and related merchandise, including the rights to reproduce, copy, adapt, modify, perform, display, publish, broadcast, transmit, or otherwise communicate to the public by any means whether now known or unknown and distribute your contributions without any further notice or compensation to you of any kind for the whole duration of protection granted to intellectual property rights by applicable laws and international conventions. This right and license of your contributions granted to ISProductions survives any termination of your subscription to the FolioLink service. To illustrate, and without limiting the statements above, if you create a Template variation or a new Template design and upload it (pursuant to ISProductions' agreement) to the FolioLink service, you acknowledge and agree that any other person can make the same or different Template variation or other assets that you created with the FolioLink service without any compensation or notice to you.

Dispute Resolution. Any cause of action you may have with respect to the Service must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises or such claim or cause of action is barred. Any dispute relating to this Agreement that cannot be resolved by negotiation shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the J.A.M.S./ENDISPUTE Arbitration Rules and Procedures, as amended by this Agreement. The costs of arbitration shall be borne by the prevailing party in the arbitration. Each party shall bear the cost of preparing and presenting its case. The parties agree that the arbitrator's authority to grant relief shall be subject to the United States Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. 1-16 et seq. ("USAA"), the provisions of this Agreement, and the ABA-AAA Code of Ethics for Arbitrators in Commercial Disputes. The arbitrator shall have no power to make any award that provides for punitive or exemplary damages.

All post-award proceedings shall be governed by the USAA.


Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the Service and can be modified only by ISProductions.


Modifications. Neither the course of conduct between you and us shall modify any provisions of this Agreement. This Agreement may only be modified by a written amendment signed by both you and us.


No Waiver for Breach. Either your or our failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right.

Severability. In the event that any portion of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable, the unenforceable portion shall be construed in accordance with applicable law as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties and the remainder of the provisions shall remain in full force and effect.
