Terms of Service
LoveThisGif offers photo and video storage, blog creation products and sharing services (collectively referred to as "LoveThisGif Services") that are offered via the Site, other social media, mobile services and mobile applications.
The Site is open to anyone 13 years of age or older, but some of the LoveThisGif Services are only available to registered members ("Members"). You can visit the Site without registering and we will consider you a "User".
When you become a Member, you agree to the following:
- You have provided true information when you registered to be a Member;
- You have given us a valid email address, and we may confirm upon registration, or at any time thereafter, via a confirming e-mail which may require a response to complete your registration or keep it active;
- You will notify us if something changes;
- You are 13 years of age or older;
- You are not breaking any laws when you use the LoveThisGif Services; and
- You will not violate these Terms as a Member.
If you become a Member, you are responsible for the Content and activities in your account, for protecting your Content with a secure password and not sharing your password with anyone. We recommend using a combination of numbers, symbols and lower and upper case letters to create a secure password.
LoveThisGif reserves the right to terminate your Membership at any time (even if you've paid), without warning for any or no reason, with or without prior notice or explanation and without liability, and can even take legal action if needed.
For example, please note that it is our policy to terminate the accounts of Members who repeatedly infringe the intellectual property rights of others. We have a similar policy for Members who violate these Terms or commit illegal acts using the Site or LoveThisGif Services - although we may, in our discretion, instead deny, restrict or suspend access to all or any part of the Site or LoveThisGif Services or terminate a Member's account when something similar occurs. You may cease use of the LoveThisGif Services at any time. Even after you are no longer a Member, you will still be responsible for the promises you have made to us about your Content (defined below). You'll be responsible for any damages that result from your breaking those promises as further outlined below.
Cost and Pricing
Visiting : There is no cost to visit the Site or to register as a Member.
Free account : Each individual Member gets one free account.
Types of Content Limits : At LoveThisGif, we strive to create a place where everyone feels welcome, so please be mindful of others. Broadly speaking, please do not upload Content you didn't create, that violates somebody else's rights, demeans another person, is offensive or harassing, seeks personal information or passwords, is a form of spam or that is illegal. We reserve the right to terminate your use for violation of these prohibitions or similar activities.
Content & Privacy
You retain all your rights to any Content you submit, upload or display on or while using LoveThisGif. This means that you own all the Content you post and are responsible for its settings: When you make your Content public, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to copy, distribute, stream, post publicly display (e.g. post it elsewhere), reproduce and create derivative works from it (meaning things based on it), anywhere, whether in print or any kind of electronic version that exists now or is later developed, for any purpose, including a commercial purpose. By making your content public, you are also giving other Members on LoveThisGif the right to copy, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce and create derivative works from it via the Site, third party websites or applications (for example, via services allowing Members to order prints of Content or t-shirts and similar items containing Content, and via social media websites), provided such use is not for a commercial purpose . By uploading, you are confirming that the Content is yours—no one else's—and that the uploading and use of your Content does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights, intellectual property rights or human rights of somebody else. If we learn that you are infringing others' rights or are using Content that is not yours, LoveThisGif has the right to remove this Content and you agree that you are responsible for any costs associated with the infringement. LoveThisGif may manipulate your Content to offer the LoveThisGif Services (including transcoding and/or reformatting Content) to allow its use throughout the LoveThisGif Services. LoveThisGif has the right to place advertising, promotions, notifications or identifiers and watermarks on or near your Content, and how and what are up to us. LoveThisGif may moderate Content. However, we are not responsible for what you have uploaded and we are under no obligation to modify or remove any inappropriate Content. We have provided some tools on the Site, such as links to "flag as inappropriate", so you can let us know if you find Content offensive. If you stop using the LoveThisGif Services, your Content may remain on the Site unless you actively remove your Content, and the rights you granted to us and other Users remain. In order to continue to improve the Site and LoveThisGif Services, we may use software and other things on the Site that we own or that have been licensed to us ("LoveThisGif Software"). LoveThisGif has also created the look, feel and architecture of the Site and has posted certain images and videos ("LoveThisGif Content"). Together the LoveThisGif Content and LoveThisGif Software are the "LoveThisGif Materials". LoveThisGif Materials are ours and remain ours. Except in viewing the Site, you agree that you will not copy, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce or create derivative works from the LoveThisGif Software. If you follow these Terms, you are entitled to use and display the LoveThisGif Content the same way you would use other Public Content on the Site.
Limits on Use
It is a violation of these Terms to disrupt the Site or the way it functions, interfere with other Users' enjoyment of the Site or LoveThisGif Services or use the Site to deceive, harass or solicit people. It is also a violation to scrape the Site, fusker files or otherwise make any use of data mining, robots or similar data gathering and extraction tools. It is up to LoveThisGif whether to terminate your use for violation of these prohibitions or similar activities.
