Welcome! Glad to see our users are smart enough to read what they’re agreeing to! We want every user to read this – that’s why we wrote it in simple English, avoiding ‘Legalese’ wherever possible. We also put what we think is most important up front, left the boring things to the end, and wrote shortened explanations in square brackets [like this] to make it even more simple. Please write to email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.
The bold headings in this agreement are for your reading convenience and do no control any of the provisions of this agreement. Similarly, everything written inside square brackets [like these] is intended only to improve readability and does not control any of the provisions of this agreement.
BuzzIt is meant to be fun for all users. If the way you have fun is by ruining other people’s fun, please go somewhere else. You can use BuzzIt for whatever purpose you like, limited to the following restrictions:
You are solely responsible for your use of BuzzIt and any Content that you create on, send to or upload to BuzzIt, and for any consequences that result from said Content.

By uploading Content to BuzzIt, you give us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to reproduce, distribute, modify and display your Content for promotional purposes as we see fit.
We disclaim all warranties, express or implied, including (but not limited to) implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement of proprietary rights, or any other warranty, condition, guarantee or representation, whether oral, on paper or electronic.

We reserve the right to remove any Content that we deem to be infringing on the copyright of others and we will respond to legitimate requests under the DMCA.
If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that Content on BuzzIt infringes on your copyright, please send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
If we remove your Content, we will notify you within BuzzIt. If you believe your Content was wrongly removed due to a mistake or misidentification of the material, you can file a counter-notice with us which must include the following:
If we receive a counter-notice, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that we may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.
We reserve the right to eliminate any account that we deem to be held by a repeat offender, at our sole discretion.
We reserve exclusive rights over everything related to BuzzIt, except for the Content uploaded by users as explained in the section of this agreement titled “Your Content”.

You agree not to modify or use unauthorized versions of BuzzIt. You agree to access BuzzIt only through the BuzzIt.ca website and the BuzzIt app.
If any provision of this user agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be modified to the extent necessary to render it enforceable without losing its intent. If no such modification is possible, that provision will be severed from the rest of this agreement.
If we do not enforce any right or provision in this user agreement, that is not to be deemed a waiver of our right to do so in the future.
For your convenience, we will keep all versions of this agreement available through the BuzzIt.ca website.
You agree that we reserve the right to end this agreement at any time. If we choose to end this agreement, it will be by terminating your account and restricting your future access.
You also have the right to end this agreement at any time, and can do so from within your BuzzIt account by selecting “Permanently Delete My Account” within the settings section.You accept that if your account is terminated by either party, certain parts of your Content will remain public. This is for the benefit of the remaining community, and will generally be the case when your Content has become integrated with Content from other BuzzIt users. For example, if you were to delete your comments from an existing conversation, that conversation might be ruined for all other users.
You accept that if your account is terminated by either party, we will retain a single file that identifies you to us for a maximum of two (2) years, fully encrypted, out of use, and offline. We agree that this single file will only be opened in the event that we receive a valid court order, subpoena or search warrant related Content created by you.
