Effective Date of Current Policy: November 14, 2016
You are able to create a user account (“Account”) on our Website to make shopping and receiving notifications from us a little easier, but we don’t require an Account to checkout. We don’t like when companies make us do that either. However, if you create an Account, you and only you are solely responsible for it. If you think your Account has been tampered with or your password was lost or stolen, please notify us immediately, because you are responsible for any actions done through your account. You can contact us at email@example.com. Also, please don’t create fake accounts or try to mislead us or do anything unseemly with your Account. If you do, we reserve the right, and we will, delete your Account immediately. No need for funny business. Lastly, as with any website, you should use good judgment and some caution when posting any information, including proprietary information or personally identifiable information, to this Website or any social media or other electronic platforms, and you should assume everyone can and will see it and that none of it is treated as confidential or proprietary, so please don’t post or submit any material you don’t want others to see or use.
COMMUNICATIONS FROM US
When you sign up for our newsletter or contact us through our website or emails, we’ll communicate with you via the email and/or mailing address you provided, unless you opt-out of receiving communications from us in the future. This type of communication is different from the order/shipping confirmation emails you’ll get from us when you place an order. Those types of emails will always occur, as we have to send you order and invoice confirmations as well as the shipping details. The kinds of communications we’re talking about here are for stuff not related to any specific order you have placed. We’re not into spam, both the kind that comes in your inbox and the kind that comes in a tin box, but we’d like to keep you updated on things at LEAP, like special promotions, new products, company updates, etc. You can always opt-out or unsubscribe to our communications in a few ways: 1) there will always be an “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any email we send you, so you would click on that and hit send, and you’ll be automatically taken off our subscriber list; and 2) you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us you want to “unsubscribe”, and we’ll take you off the list. Please know it can take 1-2 weeks for the lists to be updated, just in case you get one more email sent after you unsubscribe or email us.
All of the content on our Website is subject to trademark, service mark, trade dress, copyright, and/or other intellectual property rights or licenses held by LEAP Organics LLC. The entire content of this Website is copyrighted as a collective work under U.S. copyright laws, and LEAP Organics LLC owns any and all rights to everything you see on this Website.
We expect all users to respect the intellectual property rights of others, and we may remove material that appears in our sole discretion to infringe upon the intellectual property rights of others, and we will terminate the access rights of any and all repeat infringers. If you believe a work protected by a U.S. copyright that you own has been posted on this Website without proper authorization, please notify us at email@example.com or by writing to us at LEAP Organics LLC, Attn: Legal Department, P.O. Box 425754, Cambridge, MA 02142, so we can work with you on a solution.
Here’s the deal: everything you see, read, and listen to, which means EVERYTHING, on this Website is ours or has been licensed by us. We own all of the trademarks on our Website, as well as all of the copyrights, or we have licensed the rights to use all of the content on our Website. Any unauthorized use of our copyrights, trademarks, and content, or what we have licensed, is strictly prohibited without our express written consent, and it’s also against intellectual property laws, so just don’t do it. Thanks for understanding.
While we just told you in the above paragraph that we own everything on the Website, or we have licensed the right to use it, and kindly asked that you not try to use it for your own, we actually do want you to visit and use our Website. This is why by you agreeing to these Terms, we are offering you permission to use our Website and give you a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable and non-transferable license to use the Website and the Content solely for PERSONAL, NON-COMMERCIAL use. This means we’d love for you to come and shop at our Website, read, view, and listen to all of our content, and overall enjoy yourself and hopefully the products you purchase, but it doesn’t mean you can resell or make any commercial use of our Website or content, or in any way modify anything on our Website or content, or do any sort of copying or distribution of our materials, or try to data mine or scrape any Content off of our Website. Lastly, please don’t do anything that would harm or damage our Website or Content, as all of that is strictly prohibited, and it’s also mean. Don’t be mean, please.
CONTENT YOU SUBMIT
We welcome your feedback and comments, and we hope to hear from you. You may be able to do this through a variety of channels and in a variety of areas, which include, but aren’t limited to, our Website, our Blog, our emails, our social media platforms (like on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.), chat rooms, forums, and many other types of electronic and non-electronic platforms. First, all of the content you submit (“User Content”) is yours, and you own all the rights and license rights to all of your User Content. Yes, all of it. We don’t own any of it and we take no responsibility for it either. However, importantly, by providing any and all of your User Content to us, you give us a right and license to use, reproduce, copy, process, display, transmit, create derivative works of, and distribute any and all of the User Content you submit to us. This also pertains to any User Content you submit that may contain product ideas or concepts, and you completely understand that nothing you submit to us is treated as confidential or proprietary in any way. We’re saying this so there’s no misunderstanding if you see anything we produce, say, or write that seems similar to anything you’ve submitted, we do not owe you anything of any kind. This means we will never owe you any compensation or any credit for anything you submit to us in any manner or any area. Because of this, we’re kindly asking you to never send us any of your ideas or concepts, no matter what they are (often called “unsolicited submissions”), as these are NOT treated as confidential and you will NEVER be paid for them nor given any credit for them. You agree that this license is irrevocable, non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, sublicensable, transferable, fully-paid-up, royalty-free, and this license you give to us will survive even if you terminate your Account and never use our Website again. And this is very important to understand: your license is automatically granted to us without compensation of any kind to you, including if we use your User Content for advertising or promotional purposes, or for any and all Commercial uses. In addition to providing us a license to your User Content, you also agree to give any and all users of our Website, social media and other electronic platforms a non-exclusive, irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, transferable, sublicensable, fully-paid-up, and royalty-free license to do any and all things with your User Content, even if your Account is terminated and you never use our Website again. So to be clear, by submitting any User Content to us in any manner, you agree to give us, and any user of our Website, the right and license to use your User Content as described in this paragraph. We are also under no obligation in any way to use, read, or acknowledge in any manner your User Content. We’re sure it’s good stuff, but just because you submit it to us, doesn’t mean anything else has to or will ever happen. If you don’t agree to any of these license Terms, please just don’t submit any User Content to us.
In addition, please note that any content you post or submit to us through our Website, social media, or other electronic platforms must not harass, slander, malign, libel, defame, threaten, or otherwise violate any rights of any third parties and must not include profanity, obscene, indecent, pornographic, defamatory, or unlawful material. In addition, if you post content to our Site, it must not contain software viruses or other malicious codes, unauthorized or unsolicited advertising, or impersonate others. Just don’t be mean, and we’re all good.
Although we hope this never happens, we reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household, or per order, whether or not the order has been confirmed, for any reason or no reason, and without liability to you or anyone else. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event we make a change to or cancel an order, we will attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address or phone number that was provided at the time the order was made. You are prohibited from purchasing products and items from our website with the intent to resell them, and we reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers, or distributors. If your payment method has already been charged for an order that is later cancelled, LEAP Organics LLC shall issued you a refund. You also acknowledge that we use a third party payment processor to process all orders and to bill your credit card for each transaction.
