Eligibility . You may use the Business Account Service only if you can form a binding contract with GOAT on behalf of the business you are representing, and only in compliance with this Agreement and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules, and regulations. You must be 18 years old or older to use or access the Service. Any use or access to the Service by anyone under 18 who is not directly supervised by an adult is strictly prohibited and in violation of this Agreement. The Service may not be available to any Users previously removed from the Service by GOAT. By using the Service, you represent and warrant that you have the full right, power and authority to enter into this Agreement on behalf of the business you are representing and to fully perform all of your obligations hereunder. You further represent and warrant that you are under no legal disability or contractual restriction that prevents you from entering into this Agreement.
License to use the GOAT Service . Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you are hereby granted a non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable, freely revocable license to use the Service and as permitted by the features of the Service. GOAT reserves all rights not expressly granted herein in the Service and the GOAT Content (as defined below). GOAT may terminate this license at any time for any reason or no reason.
Your GOAT business account gives you access to the services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion. We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users. If you open a GOAT account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) “you” includes you and that entity, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement, and that you agree to this Agreement on the entity’s behalf.
You may never use another User’s account without permission. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. You may not allow any other party to access or use the Service with your unique username, password, or other security code. You must notify GOAT immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. GOAT will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account.
You may control your User profile and how you interact with the Service by changing the settings in your account. By providing GOAT your email address you consent to our using the email address to send you Service-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. We may also use your email address to send you other messages, such as changes to features of the Service and special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out or change your preferences in your settings page. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, or offers.
You agree not to engage in any of the following prohibited activities: (i) copying, distributing, or disclosing any part of the Service in any medium, including without limitation by any automated or non-automated “scraping”; (ii) using any automated system, including without limitation “robots,” “spiders,” “offline readers,” etc., to access the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the GOAT servers than a human can reasonably produce in the same period of time by using a conventional on-line web browser; (iii) transmitting spam, chain letters, or other unsolicited email; (iv) attempting to interfere with, compromise the system integrity or security or decipher any transmissions to or from the servers running the Service; (v) taking any action that imposes, or may impose at our sole discretion an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure; (vi) uploading invalid data, viruses, worms, or other software agents through the Service; (vii) collecting or harvesting any personally identifiable information, including account names, from the Service; (viii) using the Service for any commercial solicitation purposes; (ix) impersonating another person or otherwise misrepresenting your affiliation with a person or entity, conducting fraud, hiding or attempting to hide your identity; (x) interfering with the proper working of the Service; (xi) accessing any content on the Service through any technology or means other than those provided or authorized by the Service; (xii) bypassing the measures we may use to prevent or restrict access to the Service, including without limitation features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content or enforce limitations on use of the Service or the content therein; (xiii) using any GOAT Content (as defined below), including any GOAT trademarks, in any manner that might tarnish, disparage, or reflect adversely on such GOAT Content; (xiv) using the Service or any GOAT Content (as defined) to support, incite or promote discrimination, hostility or violence; (xv) using any GOAT trademark or any variant thereof including misspellings as a domain name or as part of a domain name, as a metatag, keyword, or any other type of programming code or data; (xvi) adopting or using, without our prior written consent, any word or mark which is similar to or likely to be confused with GOAT trademarks; (xvii) copying, imitating or using, in whole or in part, the look and feel of the Service (including but not limited to all page headers, custom graphics, button icons, and scripts) without the prior written consent of GOAT; (xviii) using any GOAT Content to link to the GOAT website without the prior written consent of GOAT; or (xviv) framing or hotlinking to the Service or any content other than your own without the prior written consent of GOAT.
Accessing the audiovisual content available on the Service for any purpose or in any manner other than Streaming (as defined below) is expressly prohibited. “Streaming” means a contemporaneous digital transmission of an audiovisual work via the Internet from the GOAT Service to a User’s device in such a manner that the data is intended for real-time viewing and not intended to be copied, stored, permanently downloaded, or redistributed by the User.
We may, without prior notice, change the Service; stop providing the Service or features of the Service, to you or to Users generally; or create usage limits for the Service. We may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to the Service without notice and liability for any reason, including if in our sole determination you violate any provision of this Agreement, or for no reason. Upon termination for any reason or no reason, you continue to be bound by this Agreement. If your account is terminated for any reason, you must obtain written authorization from GOAT prior to establishing another account. If you attempt to establish another account without obtaining such authorization, GOAT may permanently ban you from the Service. You may not have more than one active account at any time without the written consent of GOAT in each instance.
You are solely responsible for your interactions with other GOAT Users and/or businesses. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and other Users and/or businesses. GOAT shall have no liability for your interactions with other Users, or for any User’s and or Business’ action or inaction.
GOAT does not support and will not tolerate its Service being used to discriminate against others, especially when based on race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, ancestry or national origin. You are not permitted to use the Service in a manner which would or would likely incite, promote or support such discrimination and you must not use the Service to incite or promote hostility or violence. If we believe in our sole determination that your use of the Service is being used to discriminate, especially if based on race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, ancestry or national origin, we may permanently or temporarily
Some areas of the Service allow Users to submit and publish content such as profile information, business description and hours, photographs, illustrations, fonts, designs, and other content or information (any such materials a User submits, posts, displays, prints or otherwise makes available on or via the Service without compensation “User Content”). You retain ownership of your User Content, and you understand that if you post User Content under your business profile, the Business Account Owner will own—and be entirely responsible for—all such User Content. For the avoidance of doubt, User Content does not include Stock Media.
You agree not to submit or use User Content that: (i) may create a risk of harm, loss, physical or mental injury, emotional distress, death, disability, disfigurement, or physical or mental illness to you, to any other person, or to any animal; (ii) may create a risk of any other loss or damage to any person or property; (iii) seeks to harm or exploit children by exposing them to inappropriate content, asking for personally identifiable details or otherwise; (iv) may constitute or contribute to a crime or tort; (v) contains any information or content that we deem to be unlawful, harmful, abusive, racially or ethnically offensive, defamatory, infringing, invasive of personal privacy or publicity rights, harassing, humiliating to other people (publicly or otherwise), libelous, threatening, hostile, violent, or that which provokes violence or hostility, profane, or otherwise objectionable; (vi) contains any information which discriminates against others based on race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, ancestry or national origin; (vii) contains any information or content that is illegal (including, without limitation, the disclosure of insider information under securities law or of another party’s trade secrets); (viii) contains any information or content that you do not have a right to make available under any law or under contractual or fiduciary relationships; or (ix) contains any information or content that you know is not correct and current. You agree that any User Content does not and will not violate third-party rights of any kind, including without limitation any Intellectual Property Rights (as defined below) or rights of privacy or publicity. GOAT reserves the right, but is not obligated, to reject and/or remove any User Content that GOAT believes, in its sole discretion, violates these provisions. You understand that publishing your User Content on or via the Service is not a substitute for registering it with the U.S. Copyright Office, the Writer’s Guild of America, or any other rights organization. Further, you understand that if you contribute User Content under a Brand, the Brand Owner will own—and be entirely responsible for—all such User Content.
For the purposes of this Agreement, “Intellectual Property Rights” means all patent rights, copyright rights, mask work rights, moral rights, rights of publicity, trademark, trade dress and service mark rights, goodwill, trade secret rights and other intellectual property rights as may now exist or hereafter come into existence, and all applications therefore and registrations, renewals and extensions thereof, under the laws of any state, country, territory or other jurisdiction.
In connection with your User Content, you affirm, represent and warrant the following:
Upon making or learning of any claim that is inconsistent with any of the representations or warranties made by you, GOAT shall send you written notice of such claim, using the email address provided by you to GOAT, specifying the details of the claim as then known to GOAT.
GOAT takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any User Content that you or any other User or third party posts, publishes or prints over or using the Service. You shall be solely responsible for your User Content and the consequences of posting, publishing and printing it, and you agree that we are only acting as a passive conduit for your online distribution and publication of your User Content. In the event that your User Content is alleged to be offensive, inappropriate for children, unlawful or otherwise in breach of these terms, you agree that GOAT may disclose such User Content to law enforcement or other government authorities.
Except for your User Content, the Service and all materials therein or transferred thereby, including, without limitation, software, images, text, graphics, illustrations, logos, patents, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, photographs, audio, videos, music, User Content belonging to other Users, and Stock Media belonging to other Users (the “GOAT Content”), and all Intellectual Property Rights related thereto, are the exclusive property of GOAT and its licensors (including other Users who post User Content or contribute Stock Media (as defined below) to the Service). Except as explicitly provided herein, nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to create a license in or under any such Intellectual Property Rights, and you agree not to sell, license, rent, modify, distribute, copy, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, publish, adapt, edit or create derivative works from any GOAT Content. Use of the GOAT Content for any purpose not expressly permitted by this Agreement is strictly prohibited.
