Terms and Conditions
Effective Date: May 1st, 2018
Welcome to Pixm, Inc. Please read on to learn the rules and restrictions that govern your use of our website(s), products, services and applications (the “Services”). If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding these terms or the Services, please visit https://pixmsecurity.com/contact/ to contact us.
Will these Terms ever change?
Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by both you and us.
USER acknowledges that the Free Version is provided at no charge, and therefore, the terms that govern use of the Free Version are different, in part, from the terms that govern use of the Paid Version. The specific provisions that relate only to the Paid Version are set forth in Sections  (Paid Version Payments), [7.1] (Paid Version Limited Warranty), [8.1] (Paid Version Limitation of Liability), and [9.2] (Termination of the Paid Version), and the specific provision that relates only to the Free Version is set forth in Section [8.2] (Free Version Limitation of Liability). All other non-specified terms shall apply to both the Paid Version and Free Version. If USER upgrades from the Free Version to a Paid Version, USER acknowledges and agrees that the terms that govern the use of the Paid Version shall automatically apply to USER upon such upgrade.

RESTRICTIONS ON USE
USER represents and warrants that (a) USER will access the Service solely in connection with USER’s exercise of the limited usage license rights granted hereunder; (b) USER’s Service account will not be transferred to, or used on behalf of, another party or entity (c) USER will not remove any copyright, proprietary rights or other notice included in or on any portion of the Service, computer code or documentation; (d) USER will not distribute, transmit, display, disclose, divulge, reveal, report, publish or transfer the Service to any third party or reproduce or create derivative works based upon the Service or any portion thereof; (e) neither USER nor any of its employees, subcontractors or other personnel will attempt to reverse engineer, reverse assemble, disassemble, decompile, or otherwise attempt to discover the source code of Pixm software; (f) USER will not use the Service in a manner that is prohibited by any law or regulation. USER acknowledges that it may be temporarily disconnected from or logged off of the Service, either due to a system failure or because of USER inactivity and that Pixm shall have no liability in connection with any such disconnection or log off. USER is responsible for all charges associated with connecting to the Service.
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from a child under 13 without obtaining verifiable consent from that child’s parent or guardian (“Parental Consent”), except for the limited amount of personally identifiable information we need to collect in order to obtain Parental Consent (“Required Information”). Until we have received Parental Consent, we will only use Required Information for the purpose of obtaining Parental Consent. If you are a child under 13, please do not attempt to send any personal information about yourself to us before we obtain Parental Consent, except for the Required Information in the context of the Parental Consent process. If you believe that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information (beyond the Required Information) without our obtaining Parental Consent, please visit https://pixmsecurity.com/contact/ to contact us.
Any information or content publicly posted or privately transmitted through the Services is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such content originated, and USER accesses all such information and content at USER’s own risk, and Pixm is not liable for any errors or omissions in that information or content or for any damages or loss USER might suffer in connection with it. Pixm cannot control and has no duty to take any action regarding how USER may interpret and use the content on the Service or what actions USER may take as a result of having been exposed to the content, and USER hereby releases us from all liability for USER having acquired or not acquired content through the Services. We can’t guarantee the identity of any users with whom USER interacts in using the Services and are not responsible for which users gain access to the Services.
USER is responsible for all content USER contributes, in any manner, to the Services, and USER represents and warrants that it has all rights necessary to do so, in the manner in which USER contributes it. USER will keep all registration information accurate and current. USER is responsible for all its activity in connection with the Services.
Pixm has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, accuracy, privacy policies, or practices of or opinions expressed in any third-party websites or by any third party that you interact with through the Services. In addition, Pixm will not and cannot monitor, verify, censor or edit the content of any third-party site or service. By using the Services, USER releases and holds us harmless from any and all liability arising from your use of any third-party website or service.
USER’s interactions with organizations and/or individuals found on or through the Services, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between USER and such organizations and/or individuals. USER should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties. USER agrees that Pixm shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings.
If there is a dispute between participants on this site, or between users and any third party, USER agrees that USER is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that USER has a dispute with one or more other users, you release Pixm, its officers, employees, agents, and successors from claims, demands, and damages of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and/or our Services. If USER is a California resident, you shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
For all User Content, USER hereby grants Pixm a license to translate, modify (for technical purposes, for example making sure any sensitive information such as username or personally identifiable information is blurred on screenshots) and reproduce and otherwise act with respect to such User Contents, in each case to enable us to operate the Services, as described in more detail below. This is a license only – USER’s ownership of User Content is not affected.
If USER shares User Content publicly on the Services and/or in a manner that more than just USER can view, or if USER provides us (in a direct email or otherwise) with any feedback, suggestions, improvements, enhancements, and/or feature requests relating to the Services (each of the foregoing, “Public User Content”), then USER grants Pixm the licenses above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute your Public User Content for the purpose of making that Public User Content accessible to other users and providing the Services necessary to do so, as well as all other rights necessary to use and exercise all rights in that Public User Content in connection with the Services and/or otherwise in connection with Pixm’s business. Also, USER grants all other users of the Services a license to access that Public User Content, and to use and exercise all rights in it, as permitted by the functionality of the Services.
USER agrees that the licenses you grant are royalty-free, perpetual, sublicenseable, irrevocable, and worldwide. Finally, USER understands and agrees that Pixm, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Services to our users (including USER), may need to make changes to User Content to conform and adapt that User Content to the technical requirements of connection networks, devices, services, or media, and the foregoing licenses include the rights to do so.
We respect others’ intellectual property rights, and we reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing, and to terminate the accounts of repeat alleged infringers.

USER hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Pixm and its employees, licensors, independent contractors, providers, subsidiaries and affiliates, from and against any and all liability and costs (including, without limitation, Pixm attorneys’ fees and costs) incurred by any of them in connection with any direct or third-party claim arising out of any breach by USER of the representations and warranties of this Agreement or any use or inability to use the Service by USER. USER shall cooperate as fully as reasonably required in the defense of any claim.
PAID VERSION PAYMENTS
USER agrees to pay Pixm the fees, in the amounts and at the times specified in the selected Plan.
The Services are billed in advance on an annual basis. The Company will provide customers with an itemized invoice prior to contract commencement and annually thereafter. Pixm will not provide refunds or credits in the case of cancellations, downgrades, or when there are unused portions of the Services on an open account. For any Services upgrade, the additional fee for the Services upgrade for the remainder of the current term (i.e. either month or year) will automatically be charged to the USER’s credit card at the time of the upgrade. All future recurring charges for the Services will follow the monthly or annual billing cycle (as chosen by the USER).
All payments are exclusive of federal, state, local and foreign taxes, duties, tariffs, levies, withholdings and similar assessments (including without limitation, sales taxes, use taxes and value added taxes). You will be responsible for paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity in connection with the Services, excluding taxes based upon Pixm’s net income. All amounts due hereunder shall be grossed-up for any withholding taxes imposed.
LIMITED WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMERS
Paid Version Limited Warranty.
Pixm warrants that it will provide the Paid Version in a manner consistent with general industry standards reasonably applicable to the provision thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Paid Version may be temporarily unavailable, for example, when deemed reasonably necessary or prudent by Pixm to repair, maintain or upgrade the Paid Version or for causes beyond Pixm’s reasonable control. Pixm will notify USER at least 48 hours in advance of any known planned Paid Version-related outages.
