Hi! Welcome to the Allrelink Terms of Service. (Please wipe your feet.)

What is this thing?

The document you are reading now is the legal contract between you and Fox Holdings, LLC (a.k.a., “Allrelink”, “we”, “us”) that applies to your use of anything Allrelink, including Allrelink’s websites, mobile apps, email and other products, content, and related services (in this doc, we’re going to refer to Allrelink’s products and services collectively as “Allrelink Services”).

Who is Fox Holdings, LLC?

Fox Holdings, LLC is the company that provides and operates the Allrelink Services. We refer to ourselves here as “Allrelink”, because Allrelink is the name of the service the vast majority of our users know us by.

Why should I read this?

Even if you breeze past most terms of service on the Internet, we think you should give this one a good, solid read. First, because it’s important if you’re a Allrelink user. By using Allrelink Services, you are agreeing to be bound by all of the provisions set out here in Allrelink’s Terms of Service. And second, because, in the spirit of Blaise Pascal, who famously wrote in a letter (in French), “I have made this longer than usual because I have not had time to make it shorter,”we have actually taken a lot of time to reduce the legalese and write these terms in the shortest, most understandable way we can. And we’d really like your thoughts, if any, on how to make them better, substantively or stylistically. (Email your input to support@allrelink.com).

Who owns the things I post on Allrelink?

You do. When you post a comment or image or write or submit something on Allrelink, you own that content, as far as we’re concerned. Allrelink doesn’t claim any ownership of your content.

Since it’s yours, we need your permission to use your content. Here’s what you’re agreeing to: When you post or submit content of any sort on Allrelink, you are giving us permission to use it as needed to provide the Allrelink Services. That includes, for example, actions like storing, displaying, reproducing, and distributing your content. Since Allrelink Services are, for the most part, public, you are also agreeing that other Allrelink users will be able to see it. Your permission to use your content continues even if you stop using Allrelink or terminate your account. Also, we can use your content on others’ sites and services to promote Allrelink Services or to boost awareness of your content itself.

Please only post things on Allrelink that you have the right to post, like your own writing or a public URL or link to a story or video embed. When you post content on Allrelink, you are representing and warranting that you have all of the necessary rights to give us permission to use it.

An important thing we promise not to do: we will not sell your content or data to anyone else without your explicit permission.

Conversely, Allrelink retains copyright and any other applicable rights in the things we post on Allrelink, including Allrelink’s logo, design, and look and feel.

Can I delete my own content from Allrelink?

Yes, with a couple of caveats.

Much of the content (for example, questions or comments on a Allrelink Dialog) posted by Allrelink users is part of a social conversation among multiple individuals, meaning that deleting a question or comment can be unfair to those who wrote later responses — deletion of something previously posted in public would effectively rip a bewildering hole in the conversational thread. In cases like that, rather than deleting your comment entirely, we will enable you to remove your name, user name, and any other identifying information from the content. The content will remain, but the attribution to you will not.

When you delete some content or your entire account from Allrelink, it may take some time for our systems to fully remove it from public view. We maintain backup systems that may keep copies of your deleted content for some time; but please be aware that if you hit “delete” on Allrelink, our backup of the content may immediately become unrecoverable.

Can Allrelink block or delete my content from Allrelink?

Yes. Allrelink has the right to refuse or remove any content you post, submit, or transfer to Allrelink, for any reason or even no reason. There are limits to what we find acceptable for Allrelink, set out in the Community Guidelines. We aim to enforce Allrelink’s Community Guidelines, so when we become aware of a violation, we may remove content, suspend or alter your user name, or even suspend or delete your account. Sometimes new issues emerge that aren’t properly addressed in the Community Guidelines, so we reserve the right to block or delete content from Allrelink in our sole discretion. Having said that, we will very sincerely strive not to misuse or abuse that right.

Can Allrelink change these Terms of Service?

Yes. We can change Allrelink’s Terms of Service at any time. If the changes are material, we’ll let you know by email or by posting a notice on the site and/or apps well before the changes go into effect. The notice will designate a reasonable amount of time (we call that the “Notice Period”) after which the new Terms of Service will go into effect for all users. If you don’t agree to the new Terms of Service, we ask that you delete your account before the end of the Notice Period. If you do not delete your account before the end of the Notice Period, your content and use of the site will be subject to the new Terms of Service from that time forward.

We use Github to archive earlier versions of Allrelink’s Terms of Service; helpfully, Github makes it easy to see what’s changed from version to version. Click here to see past versions.

Can Allrelink change or end the services it offers?

Yes. At the risk of belaboring the obvious, Allrelink has the right to change, terminate, or restrict access to any aspect of Allrelink Services, at any time, and with or without notice.

How does Allrelink protect my privacy?

That’s set forth in Allrelink’s Privacy Policy. When you use Allrelink Services, you consent to Allrelink collecting and using information as detailed in the Privacy Policy. If you’re outside the United States, you consent to the transfer, storage, and processing of your information—including but not limited to the content you posted or transferred to the site and any personal information—to and within the United States and other countries.

Is Allrelink for children?

No. You must be 13 or older to use Allrelink. If you are under 13, you are not permitted to use Allrelink Services. If we learn that you are under 13, we will terminate your account.

More broadly, if you can’t legally form a binding contract, or are otherwise legally prohibited from using Allrelink Services, you don’t have our permission to use Allrelink Services.

Do these Terms of Service apply to the third-party services I can use to create an account or auth in to Allrelink?

No. Allrelink enables the use of other companies’ services — like Twitter’s and Google’s — to create and authorize user accounts. If you use those third-party services in connection with Allrelink Services, you are agreeing to their terms of use, privacy policy, and other agreements between you and them.

How does Allrelink deal with copyright infringement?

Allrelink complies with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. We have a policy of terminating repeat copyright infringers as appropriate.

Anything else I am agreeing to?

Yes. The American legal system has developed a set of provisions for Terms of Service like ours that we really need to include in this contract. You should read them, even though they are written in mind-numbing ALL CAPS — evidently, the powers-that-be believe that ALL CAPS LEGALESE is more forceful and urgent and makes a deeper impression than, say, well-written, well-organized, human-friendly text. Regardless, these provisions matter a lot — among other things, they limit our liability and specify applicable law and venue — so please don’t ignore them.

Without further ado:

1. YOU USE THE DIGG SERVICES AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS.

2. ALLRELINK MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WITH RESPECT TO ALLRELINK SERVICES. FOR EXAMPLE, WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT (I) THE SERVICE WILL MEET YOUR SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS, (II) THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, ABSOLUTELY SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE, (III) THE QUALITY OF ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES, INFORMATION, OR OTHER MATERIAL PURCHASED OR OBTAINED BY YOU THROUGH THE SERVICE WILL MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS, OR (IV) ANY ERRORS IN THE ALLRELINK SERVICES WILL BE CORRECTED.

3. YOU UNDERSTAND AND EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT ALLRELINK SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF ALLRELINK HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), RESULTING FROM: (I) THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICE; (II) THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS AND SERVICES RESULTING FROM ANY GOODS, DATA, INFORMATION OR SERVICES PURCHASED OR OBTAINED OR MESSAGES RECEIVED OR TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO THROUGH OR FROM THE SERVICE; (III) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR DATA; (IV) STATEMENTS OR CONDUCT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE SERVICE; (V) OR ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO THE ALLRELINK SERVICES.

4. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF ALLRELINK FOR ANY CLAIM UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING FOR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, IS LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS (US $100.00) OR THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US TO USE THE APPLICABLE SERVICE(S).

5. THE FAILURE OF ALLRELINK TO EXERCISE OR ENFORCE ANY RIGHT OR PROVISION OF THESE TERMS SHALL NOT CONSTITUTE A WAIVER OF THAT RIGHT OR PROVISION. THE TERMS AND OUR PRIVACY POLICY CONSTITUTE THE ENTIRE AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND ALLRELINK AND GOVERN YOUR USE OF THE ALLRELINK SERVICES, SUPERSEDING ANY PRIOR AGREEMENTS BETWEEN YOU AND ALLRELINK (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY PRIOR VERSIONS OF THE TERMS). YOU AGREE THAT THESE TERMS AND YOUR USE OF THE ALLRELINK SERVICES ARE GOVERNED UNDER NEW YORK LAW. YOU AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST ALLRELINK MUST BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY BY A STATE OR FEDERAL COURT LOCATED IN NEW YORK COUNTY, NEW YORK, EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE AGREED BY THE PARTIES. YOU AGREE TO SUBMIT TO THE PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF THE COURTS LOCATED WITHIN NEW YORK COUNTY, NEW YORK, FOR THE PURPOSE OF LITIGATING ALL SUCH CLAIMS OR DISPUTES. (Before resorting to courts, though, we strongly encourage you to contact us directly to try to work it out. We are reasonable people.)
