Open Campaign, INC welcomes you to our services. These Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) govern your relationship with and use of Open Campaign’s website, any applications (i.e. iPhone, applications, iPad applications, Android applications, etc.), and any other applications, interactive features, widgets, or any other related services (collectively, the “Services”), so please read them carefully. By using the Services you agree to be bound by the Terms. If you are using the Services on behalf of an organization, corporation or other entity, you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of that entity, and representing that you have the authority to bind that entity to these Terms. If you do not agree to these terms, you may not access or use the services. You may not access or use the Services, without Open Campaign’s prior written consent: 1. if you are a direct competitor of Open Campaign; 2. to monitor the functionality, availability, or performance of the Services; or 3. for benchmarking or any other competitive purpose.

- Website and Content Ownership
Open Campaign and/or its licensors own all right, title and interest, including intellectual property rights in and to the Services. Any suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, feedback, recommendations or other information you provide to Open Campaign relating to the Services will be automatically assigned to and owned exclusively by Open Campaign. Open Campaign reserves all rights not expressly granted hereunder. To the extent you own or may own rights to the information you post using the Services, you hereby grant Open Campaign a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license (“IP License”) to use any content that you post on or in connection with the Services.
We make no claims or promises about the quality, accuracy, or reliability of any content available via our Services. Open Campaign is not liable for any loss or damage that might arise from your reliance on the content available on the Services.
You may create your own account to use the Services by completing the online registration process. In doing so, you must provide us with accurate and complete registration information, and update it if this information changes. Following registration, we will create an account for you and assign you, or allow you to select, a password. You must keep your password confidential. You will be responsible for all use of your password, including, without limitation, any use by any unauthorized third party. You must notify us immediately if you believe your password may be used by any unauthorized person or entity. For security purposes, we recommend you change your password often. Under no circumstance should you respond to a request for your password. Our employees will never ask for your password. You must notify us immediately if you receive such a request. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your use of the Services if we believe that your password is being used without permission or otherwise in a manner that may disrupt the Services.
You are responsible for your use of the Services, or any use of the Services made using your account. At Open Campaign, our goal is to create a positive community experience. When you use the Services, you may not: (a) violate any law or regulation; (b) violate or infringe other people's intellectual property, privacy, publicity, or other legal rights; (c) transmit anything that is illegal, abusive, harassing, harmful to reputation, pornographic, indecent, profane, obscene, hateful, racist, or otherwise objectionable; (d) send unsolicited or unauthorized advertising or commercial communications, such as spam; (e) transmit any malicious or unsolicited software; (f) stalk, harass, or harm another individual; (g) impersonate or misrepresent your affiliation with someone else; (h) use any means to "scrape," "crawl," or "spider" any Web pages contained in the Site (although Open Campaign may allow operators of public search engines to use spiders to index materials from the Site for the sole purpose of creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials, and Open Campaign reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases); (i) use automated methods to use the Services in a manner that sends more requests to the Open Campaign servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional Web browser; (j) or interfere with or disrupt the Services.
- License to Use Open Campaign
Subject to these Terms, you are hereby granted a personal, nontransferable, non-exclusive, revocable license to use the Services solely for their intended use. Under this license you may not, without Open Campaign’s prior written consent: (a) copy or modify the information or materials on Open Campaign’s website (collectively, “Materials”); (b) use the Materials for any commercial purpose or any public display; (c) attempt or allow others to decompile, reverse engineer, reverse compile, disassemble, modify, adapt, translate, create derivative works from, sell, rent, lease, loan, time-share, distribute or sublicense any software contained on Open Campaign’s website; (d) remove any copyright or proprietary notations from the Materials; or (e) transfer the Materials to another person or “mirror” the materials on any other server. You understand that Open Campaign may, at its sole discretion, limit, deny, or create different levels of use or charges for different users, or cancel some or all of the functionality of the Services at any time and without prior notice. This license shall automatically terminate if you violate any of these restrictions, at which point you must destroy any downloaded Materials in your possession, whether electronic or printed.
- Facebook Connect and Other Social Networks
In connection with the Services, you will have the option of sharing your results with your Facebook friends. In fact, we want you to share our information on Facebook! By doing so, you agree: (a) you will not provide false information or share via a Facebook account belonging to anyone other than yourself without their permission; (b) you will abide by all Facebook’s Terms and Conditions of Use; (c) Open Campaign may, in its sole discretion, disable your account, block your ability to use Facebook Connect and/or request that content relating to Open Campaign be removed from your Facebook account if you violate these Terms; and (d) that if we disable your account or block your ability to use the Facebook Connect feature, you will not create another account or attempt to use the Services again without Open Campaign’s express written permission.
In addition to Facebook, you will also have the option of sharing information via LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and other social networks. By doing so, you agree: (a) you will not provide false information or share information belonging to anyone other than yourself without permission; (b) you will abide by each platform’s Terms of Service; and (c) that if we disable your account or block your ability to use a social networks’ verification tool, you will not create another account or attempt to use the Services again without Open Campaign’s express written permission.
- Term and Termination
Your right to use the Services automatically terminates upon your breach of these Terms. In addition, Open Campaign may terminate for any reason or no reason the licenses granted hereunder and the availability of the Services. Sections 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13, and 14 shall survive the termination of these Terms.
- Limitation of Liability
NEITHER OPEN CAMPAIGN NOR ITS PARTNERS, AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS SHALL BE LIABLE UNDER ANY THEORY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY THIRD PARTY, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY ON WHICH ANY SUCH DAMAGES MAY BE BASED, EVEN IF OPEN CAMPAIGN OR ITS PARTNERS, AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE §1542, WHICH SAYS: A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR. IF UNDER APPLICABLE LAW THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS NOT ENFORCEABLE, THEN THEY SHALL BE DEEMED REFORMULATED TO LIMIT OPEN CAMPAIGN’S LIABILITY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. Some jurisdictions prohibit the exclusion or limitation of liability for damages, so the above limitations may not apply to you and you may have other legal rights that vary by jurisdiction. This limitation of liability constitutes an essential part of these Terms.
