threeBuzz Terms of Service
Terms of Service
Thank you for using threeBuzz! Please note that your invitation is subject to your review and agreement with these Terms of Service. This document describes in detail your rights and our rights relating to the provision of the Service.
What Are The Terms of Service?
What Is The threeBuzz Service?
The threeBuzz Service consists of threeBuzz Software (as defined below), and other products, services and web sites hosted or made available by threeBuzz, (collectively, the “Service”). In exchange for being enabled to use the Service, you agree to abide by these Terms.
If This Is A Contract, Who Are The Parties?
You are one party to this contract. The other party to this contract is Quod Private Limited, a corporation headquartered in Singapore. Quod Private Limited wholly owns threeBuzz.
Will These Terms Of Service Ever Change?
Changes in these Terms are almost certain to happen, due to changes in our Service and the laws that apply to us and you. If we make a change, we’ll do our best to provide you with advance notice, although in some situations, such as where a change is required to satisfy applicable legal requirements, an update to these Terms may need to be effective immediately. We’ll announce changes here at our site, and we also may elect to notify you of changes by sending an email to the address you have provided to us. We will also try to explain the reasons for the change.
If we do update these Terms, you are free to decide whether to accept the updated terms or to stop using our Service; your continued use of the Service after the effectiveness of that update will be deemed to represent your agreement with, and consent to be bound by, the new Terms. Except for changes made by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms shall be effective unless set forth in a written agreement expressly amending these Terms and bearing a written signature by you and us. For clarity, email or other communications will not constitute an effective written agreement for this purpose.
What Do I Have To Do To Use the threeBuzz Service?
First, you need to create an threeBuzz Service account. You create an account by providing us with an email address and creating a password. We refer to this as your “Account Information.” We encourage you to use a distinct and non-obvious password that is different from passwords you use for any other service. You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy, completeness and confidentiality of your Account Information, and you will be responsible for all activities that occur under your account, including activities of others to whom you have provided your Account Information. We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to provide us with accurate information or to keep your Account Information secure. If you discover any unauthorized use of your Account Information or suspect that anyone may be able to access your private Content without authorization, you should immediately change your password and notify our Customer Support team.
You can access your account by installing our client software on your tablets or phones. Sorry, but obtaining those devices and paying for their connectivity and data plans is your responsibility. threeBuzz also has no responsibility for the availability of the Internet and other telecommunication services necessary to access the Service.
Can I Share My Account With Someone Else?
threeBuzz Service accounts should not be shared. If you share your Account Information with anyone, that other person may be able to take control of the account, and we may not be able to determine who is the proper account holder. We will not have any liability to you (or anyone you share your Account Information with) as a result of your or their actions under those circumstances. Since you may use a free Service account, and since we provide a number of mechanisms to allow you to share your account Content with others, we strongly urge you not to share your Account Information with anyone.
Once I Have An Account, What Are My Rights In The threeBuzz Service?
Once your account is created and you accept these Terms, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive license to use the Service subject to these Terms, for so long as you are not barred from receiving the Service under the laws applicable to you, until you close your account voluntarily or until we close your account pursuant to these Terms. In addition, we grant you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the threeBuzz Software provided to you by or on behalf of threeBuzz, for the sole purpose of enabling you to use the threeBuzz Software and enjoy the benefit of the Service, subject to any applicable license terms provided with the threeBuzz Software and these Terms, until your rights are terminated in accordance with such license and/or these Terms. You do not obtain any other right or interest in threeBuzz or the Service.
threeBuzz Data Protection Laws Say My Data Is Mine – What Does That Mean?
You retain copyright and any other rights you already held in your Content before you submitted, posted or displayed it on or through the Service. But you do have to grant threeBuzz a limited license, as described below, so we can make your data accessible and usable on the Service. Other than this limited license and other rights you grant in these Terms, threeBuzz acknowledges and agrees that we do not obtain any right, title or interest from you under these Terms in any of your Content.
What Is The License I Have To Grant To threeBuzz?
In order to enable threeBuzz to operate the Service, we must obtain from you certain limited license rights to process your Content so that technical actions we take in operating the Service are not considered legal violations. For example, copyright laws could prevent us from processing, maintaining, storing, backing-up and distributing your Content, unless you give us these rights. Accordingly, by using the Service and uploading Content, you are granting threeBuzz a license to display, perform and distribute your Content and to modify (for technical purposes, e.g., making sure content is viewable on smart phones as well as computers and other devices) and reproduce such Content to enable threeBuzz to operate the Service. You also agree that threeBuzz has the right to elect not to accept, post, store, display, publish or transmit any Content in our sole discretion.
You agree that these rights and licenses are royalty free, worldwide and irrevocable (for so long as your Content is stored with us), and include a right for threeBuzz to make such Content available to, and pass these rights along to, others with whom threeBuzz has contractual relationships related to the provision of the threeBuzz Service, solely for the purpose of providing such services, and to otherwise permit access to or disclose your Content to third parties if threeBuzz determines such access is necessary to comply with its legal obligations.
If you elect to use any third party service or application that is integrated with threeBuzz, you also agree that the licenses granted to threeBuzz in the preceding paragraph shall apply to Content that is submitted or uploaded through such third party service or application. If the third party service or application you elect to use would access or extract Content, you grant threeBuzz the right and license to enable third party access to and extraction of your Content. threeBuzz does not assume any responsibility for, or liability on account of, the actions or omissions of such third party applications or service providers.
Inasmuch as we rely upon your rights to upload and distribute your Content, you represent and warrant to threeBuzz that you have the unfettered legal rights and authority to submit your Content to threeBuzz, to make any other user, publication or other distribution of that Content in your use of the Service, and to grant the rights granted to threeBuzz under these Terms.
Finally, you understand and agree that threeBuzz, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Service to our users, may make such changes to your Content as are necessary to conform and adapt that Content to the technical requirements of connecting networks, devices, services or media.
What Other Assurances Do I Have to Grant to threeBuzz?
When you use the threeBuzz Service to send your Content to an email address, or through a social media account (e.g., Facebook or LinkedIn) that has not been linked to an threeBuzz account, threeBuzz sends such messages on your behalf, and we are relying on your representation to us that you have a direct relationship with the recipient(s) and that you are respecting the legal rights of the recipient(s) not to receive certain kinds of messages (such as harassing messages, unsolicited commercial messages, and any other form of unwanted messages). Whenever you send any kind of message to a third party via threeBuzz Service, you represent and warrant to threeBuzz that you are acting within the law and that you have prior consent from the recipient to send them such a message.
Are There Rules About What I Can Do On The threeBuzz Service?
Yes. Your use of the Service must be in accordance with these Terms. When it comes to your use of the Service, you agree that you are responsible for your own conduct and all conduct under your account. This means all Content – such as text, images, software, videos and anything else you can think of, no matter what the form or technical structure (collectively, “Content”) – created, transmitted, stored or displayed in your account, is your sole responsibility as the person who created the Content or introduced it into the Service. This applies whether the Content is kept private, shared or transmitted using the Service or any third party application or services integrated with the threeBuzz Service. Our User Guidelines provide more specific details regarding prohibited conduct on the Service. If we find that any shared Content in your account violates our Terms of Service (including by violating another person’s intellectual property rights), we reserve the right to remove such content, and terminate your account.

In all cases, you agree to permit threeBuzz to deliver these updates to you (and you to receive them) as part of your use of the Service.
