C’reerTM Terms of Service

Last Updated: January 6, 2017

Welcome to C’reer!

Thanks for using the C’reer services (including its website, and mobile and web-based applications, and any other tools, products, or services provided by Vireo Labs that link to or reference these Terms) (collectively, the “Services”). The Services are provided by Vireo Labs, LLC (“Vireo Labs”, “we,” “our,” or “us”), located at 500 Carteret Street, Beaufort SC 29902.

By using our Services, you are agreeing to these Terms of Service (“Terms”). Please read them carefully.  Our Services are very diverse, so sometimes additional terms or product requirements (including age requirements) may apply. If additional terms or conditions are available with or applicable to the relevant Services, then those additional terms become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services.  By accessing or using the Services, you intend and agree to be legally bound by these Terms.  You may wish to print or save a local copy of the Terms for your records.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THESE TERMS OF SERVICE LIMIT OUR LIABILITY AND THAT YOU ARE RELEASING US FROM VARIOUS CLAIMS IN SECTION 8 BELOW. THESE TERMS ALSO CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION IN SECTION 13 THAT AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THESE TERMS WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES.

1.              Using our Services

You must follow any additional policies made available to you within the Services.

Don’t misuse our Services.  For example, don’t interfere with our Services, try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide, or extensively or automatically copy any content from the Services (in other words, no scraping). You may use our Services only for your personal non-commercial use, and as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies, if we are investigating suspected misconduct, or for any other reason.

Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access through them (“Content”). You may not use Content, except as permitted by its owner or as otherwise permitted by law. These Terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services, including the Vireo Labs name and logo. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.

Our Services display some Content that is not our own, for example, Content belonging to our advertisers, other third parties, you, or other users (collectively, “Third-Party Content”).  We are not responsible for, and you waive all of our liability with respect to, Third-Party Content.  Third Party Content is the sole responsibility of the individual or entity that makes it available to you via the Service. We may review Third-Party Content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display Third-Party Content that we believe violates our policies or the law. But we do not generally review content beforehand, and we are not obligated to do so. 

In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications, for example, by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in marketing e-mails or by texting “Stop” or “Do Not Send” in response to text messages or, if available, by disabling notifications in the Services’ settings. Please be aware that there may be a brief period before we are able to process your opt-out.

Some of our Services are available on mobile devices and may utilize SMS/iMessage, which may cause you to incur SMS or data charges with your wireless provider.  Please be aware that we have no control over these charges, and if you do not wish to be charged, you should stop using the mobile or SMS/iMessage features of the Services, as applicable. 

2.              Your Account

You may need an account in order to use the Services. If you create your own account, you agree that all registration information you give us will be accurate and current.  If your account has been assigned to you by an administrator, such as your employer or educational institution, different or additional terms may apply and your administrator may be able to access or disable your account.  You will timely notify us of any changes to any of the foregoing information.  You are responsible for controlling access to any PCs, mobile devices, or other end points that you allow to store your Services password, or on which you enable a "Remember Me" or similar functionality ("Activated Device"). Accordingly, you agree that you will be solely responsible for all activities that occur under your Services accounts, including the activities of any individual with whom you share your Services account or an Activated Device.

To protect your account, keep your password confidential. You are responsible for the activity that happens on or through your account.  If you learn of any unauthorized use of your password, please contact us at support@creer.us.

3.              Privacy and Feedback

Our privacy policy www.creer.us/privacy explains how we treat your personal information and protect your privacy when you use our Services. By using our Services, you agree that we can collect, use, and share data from you as described in our privacy policy. We are not responsible for any information or Content collected by users that you submit or make available via your use of the Services.  You assume all privacy, security, and other risks associated with providing any information, including personally identifiable information, to other users of the Service. 

If you submit feedback or suggestions about our Services, you agree that we may use your feedback or suggestions without obligation to you. 

4.              Content You Submit or Share

You may submit, upload, and share pictures, text and other content to or through the Services (“Your Content”), and in doing so you must follow these Terms and the rules and policies referenced in these Terms. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in Your Content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.

When you upload, submit, or otherwise share Your Content to or through our Services, you give us (and those we work with) a royalty-free, worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute Your Content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services.  Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Services.

You agree that you will not use the Services to:

·       Violate law or a third-party’s rights;

·       Submit excessive or unsolicited commercial messages or spam any users;

·       Submit malicious content or viruses;

·       Solicit other people’s login information, credit card numbers, or other sensitive information;

·       Harass or bully other users; or

·       Post content that is hate speech, threatening or pornographic, that incites violence or that contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence. 

5.              About Software in our Services

You may be required to download software (such as a mobile or desktop app) to use the Services or certain features of the Services, and the Services may enable you to access software running on our (or our vendors’) servers (collectively, “Software”).  You agree that we retain the ownership of all rights, title, and interest in and to the Software.  Certain Software may update automatically on your device once a new version or feature is available, and you consent to such automatic updating.

Vireo Labs gives you a personal, non-commercial, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable, and non-exclusive license to use the Software to access the Services.  This license is for the sole purpose of enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Services as provided by us, in the manner permitted by these Terms.  You may not copy, modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of our Services or Software, nor may you reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code of the Services or Software, unless laws prohibit those restrictions or you have our written permission.

There may be software programs contained within certain Software that have been licensed to us by third parties. The term "Software" as used herein shall refer to this third-party software except where the term “Software” is used in the context of our ownership. The same terms and conditions, including all limitations and restrictions, set forth in these Terms apply to each third-party software program contained in the Software. You acknowledge and agree that any third-party components are owned by their applicable licensors. We do not make any representations or warranties about the operation or availability of such third-party software. Neither we, nor our licensors, shall be liable for any unavailability or removal of such third-party software. We are not responsible for any communications to or from such licensors, or for the collection or use of information by such licensors. You consent to the communications enabled and/or performed by such third-party software, including automatic updating of the third-party software without further notice. You agree that such third-party software licensors are intended third-party beneficiaries under these Terms.

6.              Modifying and Terminating our Services

We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or remove functionalities or features, and we may suspend or stop a Service altogether, at any time, without any notice or liability.

You can stop using our Services at any time, although we’ll be sorry to see you go. We may also stop providing Services to you, or add or create new limits to our Services, at any time.

Sections 6 – 13 will survive termination or expiration of these Terms indefinitely.

7.              Our Warranties and Disclaimers

OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS, NEITHER VIREO LABS NOR ITS LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, ADVERTISERS, OR DISTRIBUTORS MAKE ANY SPECIFIC PROMISES ABOUT THE SERVICES. FOR EXAMPLE, WE DON’T MAKE ANY COMMITMENTS ABOUT THE CONTENT WITHIN THE SERVICES, THE SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS OF THE SERVICES, OR THEIR RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR NEEDS.  WE ALSO DO NOT MAKE ANY WARRANTIES OR COMMITMENT RELATING TO NON-INFRINGEMENT, FREEDOM FROM VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL CODE, OR ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED OPERATIONS.  WE PROVIDE THE SERVICES “AS-IS.”

SOME JURISDICTIONS PROVIDE FOR CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIKE THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES.

8.              Liability for our Services

WHEN PERMITTED BY LAW, VIREO LABS (AND ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS) AND OUR LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, ADVERTISERS, AND DISTRIBUTORS, WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, FINANCIAL LOSSES OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES.

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF VIREO LABS (AND ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS) AND OUR LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, ADVERTISERS, AND DISTRIBUTORS, FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS UNDER THESE TERMS OR RELATING TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING FOR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US TO USE THE SERVICES (OR, IF WE CHOOSE, TO SUPPLYING YOU THE SERVICES AGAIN).

IN ALL CASES RELATING TO PROVIDING YOU THE SERVICES, VIREO LABS (AND ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS) AND ITS LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, ADVERTISERS, AND DISTRIBUTORS, WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT IS NOT REASONABLY FORESEEABLE OR THAT IS DUE TO EVENTS OUTSIDE OF OUR REASONABLE CONTROL, SUCH AS WARS, CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES, STORMS, NATURAL DISASTERS, ACTS OF GOVERNMENT, SUPPLY INTERRUPTIONS, OR TELECOMMUNICATION OR INTERNET FAILURES.

9.              Business/Employer Uses of our Services

If you are using our Services on behalf of a business or employer, you are accepting these Terms on their behalf, and that business or employer agrees to be bound by these Terms.

10.           Indemnification

You hereby agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Vireo Labs and its affiliated companies, and its and their predecessors, successors, and assigns, its and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives, partners, and contractors from and against all claims, losses, expenses, damages and costs (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys' fees), resulting from or arising out of your actual or alleged breach of these Terms, any content you provide through the Services, or your use or misuse of the Services.  However, you will not be responsible for claims, damages, and costs which are found by a court of competent jurisdiction to have arisen solely from our wrongful acts or omissions.   

11.           About these Terms

We may modify these Terms or any additional terms that apply to a Service for any reason, for example, to reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services. You should look at the Terms regularly and the “Last Updated” date at the beginning of these Terms.  We’ll use reasonable efforts to give you notice of these modifications, such as posting notice of modifications to these Terms on this web page, through the Services, or via email.   By continuing to use the Service after we make these modifications, you agree that you will be subject to the modified Terms.  If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of that Service.

If there is a conflict between these Terms and any additional terms for a Service, the additional terms will control for that conflict.

These Terms control the relationship between Vireo Labs and you. They do not create any third-party beneficiary rights (except in the limited case of Section 12).  If you do not comply with these Terms, and we don’t take action right away, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future).  If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.

The laws of the United States and the State of New York, excluding New York’s conflict of laws rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services.

You may not assign or delegate your rights or obligations relating to these terms or your account for the Services without our prior written consent.  We may assign these terms or assign or delegate any of our rights or obligations at any time.

12.           Third Party Terms

You agree that in addition to these Terms, your use of our mobile app is subject to the usage rules set forth in Apple’s App Store terms of service, if you download our app from the App Store, or in Google’s Play terms of service, if you download the app from Google Play, or any other third party platform, developer or distributor end-user license agreement and/or terms and conditions by which you agree to be bound when you download our mobile app or otherwise access the Services.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if you downloaded our mobile app from Apple, you and Vireo Labs acknowledge and agree to the following:  This agreement is concluded between you and Vireo Labs only, and not with Apple Inc. (“Apple”). Vireo Labs, not Apple, is solely responsible for the app and the content thereof. Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the app. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple will have no warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the app, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be Vireo Labs’s sole responsibility.  Vireo Labs, not Apple, is responsible for addressing any claims by you or any third party relating to the app or your possession and/or use of the app, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the app fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.  In the event of any third-party claim that the app or your possession and use of the app infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, Apple will have no responsibility for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim.  You represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.  Apple, and Apple’s subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of this agreement, and upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of the agreement, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce the agreement against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.

13.           Binding Arbitration

Without limiting your waiver in Section 8 above, you agree to the following:

a. Purpose. Any and all Disputes (as defined below) involving you and Vireo Labs will be resolved through individual arbitration. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and there is less discovery and appellate review than in court. This Section 13 (the "Arbitration Provision") shall be broadly interpreted.

b. Definitions. The term "Dispute" means any claim or controversy related to the Services or the Software, including but not limited to any and all: (1) claims for relief and theories of liability, whether based in contract, tort, fraud, negligence, statute, regulation, ordinance, or otherwise; (2) claims that arose before these Terms or any prior agreement; (3) claims that arise after the expiration or termination of these Terms; and (4) claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class.  As used in this Arbitration Provision, "Vireo Labs" means Vireo Labs and any of its predecessors, successors, assigns, parents, subsidiaries and affiliated companies and each of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents, and “you” means you and any users or beneficiaries of your access to the Services or the Software.

c. Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding/Selection of Arbitrator. The party initiating the arbitration proceeding may open a case with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) by visiting its website (www.adr.org) or calling its toll-free number (1-800-778-7879). You may deliver any required or desired notice to Vireo Labs by mail to Vireo Labs.

d. Right to Sue in Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding anything in this Arbitration Provision to the contrary, either you or Vireo Labs may bring an individual action in a small claims court in the area where you access the Services if the claim is not aggregated with the claim of any other person and if the amount in controversy is properly within the jurisdiction of the small claims court.

e. Arbitration Procedures. This Arbitration Provision shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. Arbitrations shall be administered by AAA pursuant to its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) as modified by the version of this Arbitration Provision that is in effect when you notify Vireo Labs about your Dispute. You can obtain the AAA Rules from the AAA by visiting its website (www.adr.org) or calling its toll-free number (1-800-778-7879). If there is a conflict between this Arbitration Provision and the rest of this Agreement, this Arbitration Provision shall govern. If there is a conflict between this Arbitration Provision and the AAA rules, this Arbitration Provision shall govern. If the AAA will not administer a proceeding under this Arbitration Provision as written, the parties shall agree on a substitute arbitration organization. If the parties cannot agree, the parties shall mutually petition a court of appropriate jurisdiction to appoint an arbitration organization that will administer a proceeding under this Arbitration Provision as written applying the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules. A single arbitrator will resolve the Dispute. Unless you and Vireo Labs agree otherwise, any arbitration hearing will take place at the nearest available location to Savanah, Georgia for AAA arbitration.   The arbitrator will honor claims of privilege recognized by law and will take reasonable steps to protect customer account information and other confidential or proprietary information. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision that explains the arbitrator’s essential findings and conclusions. The arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties only if necessary for purposes of enforcing the arbitrator’s award. An arbitrator’s award that has been fully satisfied shall not be entered in any court.

f. Waiver of Class Actions and Collective Relief. THERE SHALL BE NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY CLAIMS TO BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON A CLASS ACTION, JOINT OR CONSOLIDATED BASIS OR ON BASES INVOLVING CLAIMS BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC (SUCH AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL), OTHER SUBSCRIBERS, OR OTHER PERSONS. THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF WARRANTED BY THAT INDIVIDUAL PARTY’S CLAIM. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.

g. Arbitration Fees and Costs. If your claim seeks more than $75,000 in the aggregate, the payment of the AAA’s fees and costs will be governed by the AAA rules. If your claims seek less than $75,000 in the aggregate, the payment of the AAA’s fees and costs will be Vireo Labs’s responsibility. However, if the arbitrator finds that your Dispute was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), the payment of the AAA’s fees and costs shall be governed by the AAA Rules and you shall reimburse Vireo Labs for all fees and costs that were your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. You may hire an attorney to represent you in arbitration. You are responsible for your attorneys’ fees and additional costs and may only recover your attorneys’ fees and costs in the arbitration to the extent that you could in court if the arbitration is decided in your favor. Notwithstanding anything in this Arbitration Provision to the contrary, Vireo will pay all fees and costs that it is required by law to pay.

h. Severability and Waiver of Jury Trial. If any part of subsection (f) of this Arbitration Provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, the entire Arbitration provision will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court. WHETHER IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION, YOU AND Vireo Labs AGREE TO WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW. If any other clause in this Arbitration Provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Arbitration Provision and the remainder of this Arbitration Provision will be given full force and effect.

i. Continuation. This Arbitration Provision will survive the termination or expiration of these Terms.
