Terms

  1. Your Acceptance

This is an agreement between PORD a California corporation (“PORD”), the owner and operator of www.porddrop.com (the “PORD”Site), the PORD software, including PORD Messenger (collectively, including all content provided by PORD through PORD Messenger and the PORD site, the “PORD Service”, or the “Service”), and you (“you” or “You”), a user of the Service. BY USING THE SERVICE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, AND PORD PRIVACY POLICY. If you choose to not agree with any of these terms, you may not use the Service.

  1. PORD Service

These Terms of Service apply to all users of the PORD service. Information provided by our users through the PORD service may contain links to third party websites that are not owned or controlled by PORD. PORD has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party websites. In addition, PORD will not and cannot censor or edit the content of any third-party site. By using the Service, you expressly acknowledge and agree that PORD shall not be responsible for any damages, claims or other liability arising from or related to your use of any third-party website.

  1. PORD Access
  2. Subject to your compliance with these Terms of Service, PORD hereby grants you permission to use the Service, provided that: (i) your use of the Service as permitted is solely for your personal use, and you are not permitted to resell or charge others for use of or access to the Service, or in any other manner inconsistent with these Terms of Service; (ii) you will not duplicate, transfer, give access to, copy or distribute any part of the Service in any medium without PORD’s prior written authorization; (iii) you will not attempt to reverse engineer, alter or modify any part of the Service; and (iv) you will otherwise comply with the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

 

 

  1. In order to access and use the features of the Service, you acknowledge and agree that you will have to provide PORD with your mobile phone number. You expressly acknowledge and agree that in order to provide the Service, PORD may periodically access your contact list and/or address book on your mobile device to find and keep track of mobile phone numbers of other users of the Service. When providing your mobile phone number, you must provide accurate and complete information. You hereby give your express consent to PORD to access your contact list and/or address book for mobile phone numbers in order to provide and use the Service. We do not collect names, addresses or email addresses, just mobile phone numbers. You are solely responsible for the status messages that you submit and that are displayed for your mobile phone number on the PORD service. You must notify PORD immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your mobile phone. Although PORD will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you may be liable for the losses of PORD or others due to such unauthorized use.
  2. You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation that accesses the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the PORD servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a PORD application, and you are forbidden from ripping the content unless specifically allowed. We have to disallow using request modification tools such as fiddler or whisker, or the like or any other such tools activities that are meant to explore or harm, penetrate or test the site. You must secure our permission before you measure, test, health check or otherwise monitor any network equipment, servers or assets hosted on our domain. You agree not to collect or harvest any personally identifiable information, including phone number, from the Service, nor to use the communication systems provided by the Service for any commercial solicitation or spam purposes. You agree not to spam, or solicit for commercial purposes, any users of the Service.

 

 

  1. Intellectual Property Rights

The design of the PORD service along with PORD created text, scripts, graphics, interactive features and the like, except Status Submissions (as defined below), and the trademarks, service marks and logos contained therein (“Marks”), are owned by or licensed to PORD, subject to copyright and other intellectual property rights under United States and foreign laws and international conventions. The Service is provided to you AS IS for your information and personal use only. PORD reserves all rights not expressly granted in and to the Service. You agree to not engage in the use, copying, or distribution of any of the Service other than expressly permitted herein, including any use, copying, or distribution of Status Submissions of third parties obtained through the Service for any commercial purposes.

  1. User Status Submissions
  2. The PORD service allows PORD users to submit status text, profile photos and other communications submitted by you, as well as the automatic submission of your “last seen” status (collectively, the “Status Submissions”). These Status Submissions may be hosted, shared, and/or published as part of the PORD service, and may be visible to other users of the Service who have your mobile phone number in their mobile phone and which you have not expressly blocked. For clarity, direct messages, location data and photos or files that you send directly to other PORD users will only be viewable by those PORD user(s) or group(s) you directly send such information; but Status Submissions may be globally viewed by PORD users that have your mobile phone number on their smartphone, unless the user is blocked by you. Currently, we have a method of providing different levels of visibility of your Status Submissions among users that have your mobile phone number – you acknowledge and agree that any Status Submissions may be globally viewed by users that have your mobile phone number, so don’t submit or post status messages or profile

 

 

photos that you don’t want to be seen globally. A good rule of thumb is if you don’t want the whole world to know something or see something, don’t submit it as a Status Submission to the Service. The submission of your ‘last seen’ status is done on an automatic basis. As clarified in the following section, you retain your ownership rights in your Status Submissions. You understand that whether or not such Status Submissions are published, PORD does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any submissions

  1. You shall be solely responsible for your own Status Submissions and the consequences of posting or publishing them. Because PORD is only acting as a repository of data, user submitted statuses do not necessarily represent the views or opinions of PORD, and PORD makes no guarantees as to the validity, accuracy or legal status of any status. In connection with Status Submissions, you affirm, represent, and/or warrant that: (i) you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorize PORD to use all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to any and all Status Submissions to enable inclusion and use of the Status Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service; and (ii) you have the written consent, release, and/or permission of each and every identifiable individual person in the Status Submission to use the name or likeness of each and every such identifiable individual person to enable inclusion and use of the Status Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service. To be clear: you retain all of your ownership rights in your Status Submissions, but you have to have the rights in the first place. However, by submitting the Status Submissions to PORD, you hereby grant PORD a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicense able and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the Status Submissions in connection with the PORD service and PORD (and its successor’s) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the PORD service (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels. You also hereby grant each subscriber to your status on the PORD service a non-exclusive license to access your Status Submissions through the Service. The foregoing license granted by you terminates once you remove or delete a Status Submission from the PORD service.

 

 

  1. In connection with Status Submissions, you further agree that you will not: (i) submit material that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner to post the material and to grant PORD all of the license rights granted herein; (ii) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage PORD or any third party; (iii) submit material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate; (iv) post advertisements or solicitations of business; (v) impersonate another person; (vi) send or store material containing software viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other harmful computer code, files, scripts, agents or programs; (vii) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Service or the data contained therein; or (viii) attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Service or its related systems or networks.
  2. Adult content must be identified as such. PORD does not endorse any Status Submission or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and PORD expressly disclaims any and all liability in connection with Status Submissions. PORD does not permit copyright infringing activities and infringement of intellectual property rights via its Service, and PORD will remove all content and Status Submissions if properly notified that such content or Status Submission infringes on another’s intellectual property rights. To file a copyright infringement notification, please send a written communication that includes substantially the following (see Section 512(c)(3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act): (i) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (ii) Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works; (iii) Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material, including the mobile phone number of the PORD user allegedly infringing the copyrighted work; (iv) Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service

 

 

provider to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted; (v) A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. Such takedown notices may be emailed to support at whatsapp.com. PORD reserves the right to remove content and Status Submissions without prior notice. PORD may also terminate a user’s access to the Service, if they are determined to be a repeat infringer, or for any or no reason, including being annoying. A repeat infringer is a User who has been notified of infringing activity more than once and/or has had a Status Submission removed from the Service more than twice. An annoying person is anyone who is (capriciously or not) determined to be annoying by authorized PORD employees, agents, subagents. PORD also reserves the right to decide whether content or a Status Submission is appropriate and complies with these Terms of Service for violations other than copyright infringement and violations of intellectual property law, such as, but not limited to excessive length or limited interest. PORD may remove such Status Submissions and/or terminate a User’s access for uploading such material in violation of these Terms of Service at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion.

  1. You understand that when using the PORD service you will be exposed to Status Submissions from a variety of sources, and that PORD is not responsible for the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of or relating to such Status Submissions, and that such Status Submissions are not the responsibility of PORD. You further understand and acknowledge that you may be exposed to Status Submissions that are inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable, and you agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against PORD with respect thereto, and agree to indemnify and hold PORD, its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, and/or licensors, harmless to the fullest extent allowed by law regarding all matters related to your use of the PORD service.
  2. PORD permits you to link to materials on the Service for personal purposes only. PORD reserves the right to discontinue any aspect of the PORD service at any time.
