Publisher Tools may allow for the submission of content, including by Trivver’s advertisers, and except as expressly provided in these terms, Trivver does not acquire any ownership of any intellectual property rights that you or the advertisers hold in the content that you submit using the Publisher Tools. By submitting, posting or displaying content to or from the Publisher Tools through your Service, you give Trivver a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, and distribute such content. However, Trivver will only use such content for the purpose of enabling Trivver to provide its services, the Publisher Tools, and only in accordance with the applicable Trivver privacy policies.

You are required to implement and use the most current version of the Publisher Tools and to update your Services, as may be required as a result of the Update, at your sole cost and expense. Be aware that an Update may adversely affect the manner in which your Services access or communicate with the Publisher Tools or Content. By continuing access or use of the Publisher Tools following an Update will constitute binding acceptance of the Update.

You may not create any derivative works of the Trivver Marks or use the Trivver Marks in a manner that creates or reasonably implies an inaccurate relationship, endorsement, sponsorship or association with Trivver. All use of the Trivver Marks, and all goodwill arising out of such use, will inure to Trivver’s sole benefit. You will not use the Trivver Marks expect as expressly authorized herein without Trivver’s written consent, and you will not remove, alter, or modify any proprietary notices or Trivver Marks on the Publisher Tools, Content, or Platforms. Additionally, you will not use any business names, trademarks, service marks, or logos in a manner that can mislead, confuse, or deceive users of your Services.

If you acquire any rights in the Trivver Marks or any confusingly similar marks, by operation of law or otherwise, you will, at no expense to Trivver, immediately assign in full such rights to Trivver.
From time to time, Trivver may solicit from you, or you may provide, in your sole discretion, suggestions for changes, modifications, improvements, or any other feedback related to any Publisher Tools, Content, or Trivver (collectively, “Publisher Feedback”). All Publisher Feedback shall be solely owned by Trivver, including all intellectual property rights therein, and shall also be deemed Trivver’s Confidential Information. You hereby assign all right, title, and interest in and to any Publisher Feedback to Trivver, and acknowledge and agree that Trivver has the unrestricted right to use and exploit such Publisher Feedback in any manner, without attribution, and without any obligations or compensation to Publisher.
You may be given access to certain non-public information, software, and specifications relating to the Publisher Tools and Content (“Confidential Information”), which is confidential and proprietary to Trivver. You may use this Confidential Information only as necessary in exercising your rights granted by this Agreement. You may not disclose any of this Confidential Information to any third party without Trivver’s prior written consent. You agree that you will protect this Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure in the same manner that you would use to protect your own confidential and proprietary information of a similar nature, and in no event with no less than a reasonable degree of care.
Trivver may terminate this Agreement for any reason or for no reason at any time. We may also suspend your access to the Publisher Tools if you have violated the terms of this Agreement, or any other agreement you have with Trivver, or Trivver’s policies, or provide any false, incomplete, inaccurate, or misleading information, or otherwise engage in fraudulent or illegal content. If your Trivver account is terminated or suspended for any reason or no reason, you agree (i) to continue to be bound by this Agreement; (ii) that all licenses granted herein immediately expire, (iii) to immediately stop using the Publisher Tools, Content, and Platforms; and (iii) that Trivver will not be liable to you or any third party for termination or suspension of access to the Publisher Tools, Content and/or Platforms, including without limitation, any and all liability for compensation, reimbursement, or damages in connection with your use of the Publisher Tools, Content, or Platforms.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, PUBLISHER TOOLS, CONTENT, AND PLATFORMS ARE PROVIDED WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM TRIVVER, OR THROUGH ANY PUBLISHER TOOLS, CONTENT, OR PLATFORMS WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED HEREIN. WITHOUT LIMITATION THE FOREGOING, TRIVVER, ITS PROCESSORS, ITS PROVIDERS, ITS LICENSORS (AND THEIR RESPECTIVE SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, AGENT, DIRETORS, AND EMPLOYEES) DO NOT WARRANT THAT PUBLISHER TOOLS, CONTENT, AND PLATFORMS ARE ACCURATE, RELIABLE OR CORRECT; THAT PUBLISHER TOOLS, CONTENT, OR PLATFORMS WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS; THAT PUBLISHER TOOLS, CONTENT, OR PLATFORMS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT ANY PARTICULAR TIME OR LOCATION, UNINTERRUPED OR SECURE; THAT ANY DEFECTS OR ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED; OR THAT PUBLISHER TOOLS, CONTENT, OR PLATFORMS ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. ANY CONTENT OR DATA DOWNLOADED OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF THE PUBLISHER TOOLS, CONTENT, AND/OR PLATFORMS ARE DOWNLOADED AT YOUR OWN RISK AND YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR PROPERTY OR LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM SUCH DOWNLOAD.
Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT SHALL TRIVVER, ITS PROCESSORS, ITS SUPPLIERS, OR ITS LICENSORS, OR THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES, AGENTS, DIRECTORS, AND EMPLOYEES, BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, THAT RESULT FROM THE USE OF, INABILITY TO USE, OR UNAVAILABILITY OF THE PUBLISHER TOOLS, CONTENT, OR PLATFORMS. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL TRIVVER BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE, LOSS, OR INJURY RESULTING FROM HACKING, TAMPERING, OR OTHER UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR USE OF PUBLISHER TOOLS, CONTENT, PLATFORMS OR YOUR TRIVVER ACCOUNT, OR THE INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, TRIVVER, ITS PROCESSORS, ITS SUPPLIERS, AND ITS LICENSORS (AND THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES, AGENTS, DIRECTORS, AND EMPLOYEES) ASSUME NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY (I) ERRORS, MISTAKES, OR INACCURACIES OF PUBLISHER TOOLS, CONTENT, OR PLATFORMS; (II) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF PUBLISHER TOOLS, CONTENT, OR PLATFORMS; (III) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SECURE SERVERS AND/OR ANY AND ALL PERSONAL INFORMATION STORED THEREIN; (IV) ANY INTERRUPTION OR CESSATION OF TRANSMISSION TO OR FROM PUBLISHER TOOLS, CONTENT, OR PLATFORMS; (V) ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, OR THE LIKE THAT MAY BE TRANSMITTED TO OR THROUGH PUBLISHER TOOLS, CONTENT, OR PLATOFRMS BY ANY THIRD PARTY; (VI) ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN ANY DATA OR FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE INCURRED AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF ANY DATA POSTED, EMAILED, TRANSMITTED, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH PUBLISHER TOOLS, CONTENT, OR PLATFORMS IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED USD $100.
THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SECTION APPLIES WHETHER THE ALLEGED LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER BASIS, EVEN IF TRIVVER HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW IN THE APPLICABLE JURISDICTION. TO THE EXTENT THAT APPLICABLE LAW PROHIBITS ANY LIMITATION ON LIABILITY HEREIN, THE PARTIES AGREE THAT SUCH LIMITATION WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY MODIFIED, BUT ONLY TO THE EXTENT SO AS TO MAKE THE LIMITATION COMPLIANT WITH APPLICABLE LAW.
You agree to indemnify and defend Trivver, including our respective employees, directors, agents, affiliates, and representatives, from and again any and all actions, demands, claims, and suits, losses, damages, judgments, tax assessments (including without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) instituted by a person or entity arising out of: (i) your actual or alleged breach of your representations, warranties, or obligations under this Agreement; (ii) your wrongful or unpermitted use of the Publisher Tools, Content, or Platforms; (iii) the performance, promotion, sale, or distribution of your Services; (iv) your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation any right of privacy, publicity rights, or Intellectual Property Rights; or (v) your violation of any law, rule, or regulation of the United State or any other jurisdiction. Trivver reserves the right, at its option and sole discretion, to assume full control of the defense of claims with legal counsel of its choice. You may not enter into any agreement, which would in any manner, affect the right of Trivver, constitute an admission of fault or liability by Trivver, or bind Trivver in any manner, without the prior written consent of Trivver. In the event Trivver decides to assume control of the defense of such claim, Trivver shall not settle any such claim requiring payment from you without your prior written approval.
Choice of Law and Venue
Any claim and/or dispute that arises from your use of the Publisher Tools and Content shall be decided in accordance with the laws of the State of California. Subject to the arbitration provision below, you agree that any judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions in consumer cases) shall be brought in the state or federal courts located in Orange County, California, United States of America. You agree that such courts shall have personal jurisdiction over you and agree to submit to the jurisdiction and venue of such courts, and waive any objections based on inconvenient forum.
Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement, of the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof shall be determined by arbitration in Orange County, California before a single arbitrator. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO HAVE YOUR CASE DECIDED BY A JURY AND YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST TRIVVER. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures. You and Trivver hereby expressly waive trial by jury. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If applicable, consumer claimants (individuals whose transaction is intended for personal, family, or household use) may elect to pursue their claim in their local small-claims court rather than through arbitration so long as their matter remains in small claims courts and proceeds only on an individual (non-class or non-representative) basis.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you understand and agree that any use or dissemination of Trivver’s Confidential Information in violation of this Agreement will cause Trivver irreparable harm, and that monetary damages will not be a sufficient remedy for unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information, and that Trivver will have no adequate remedy at law. Therefore, Trivver shall be entitled, without waiving any other rights or remedies, to such injunctive or equitable relief as may be deemed proper by a court of competent jurisdiction without requirement for bond. Such remedies shall not be deemed to be the exclusive remedy for any breach of this Agreement but shall be in addition to all other remedies available at law or in equity.
This Agreement, and any and all rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, and any attempted transfer or assignment, whether in full or in part, will be null and void.
Ability to Accept Terms of Service
You affirm that you are more than the legal age in the territory in which you reside, and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set forth in the Agreement, and to abide by and comply with the Agreement.
Trivver’s 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.
If any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then it will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the maximum extent possible under applicable law, and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement, and supersedes all prior negotiations, understandings, or agreements (whether oral or written) between the parties about the subject matter of this Agreement.
Modification of Agreement
We may amend this Agreement at any time with notice that we deem to be reasonable by posting the revised version on our website or communicating it to you through your Trivver account. The updated agreement will be effective as of the time it is posted. Your continued use of and access to the Publisher Tools and/or Content after the posing of an updated agreement constitutes your acceptance of such updated agreement.
Third Party Beneficiaries
Except as otherwise expressly stated in the terms of this Agreement, there are no third-party beneficiaries.
The terms of this Agreement do not create an agency, partnership, or joint venture among the parties.
