Our proprietary information
The material, content, and Services accessible from this Site, including, but not limited to any website owned, operated, licensed, or otherwise controlled by us (the “Content”) is our proprietary information or the proprietary information of the party that provided or licensed the Content or Services to us, whereby we or such providing party retain(s) all right, title, and interest in the Content. Accordingly, the Content may not be copied, decompiled, reverse engineered, disassembled, transferred, distributed, republished, resold, sublicensed, uploaded, posted, used to create derivative works, or transmitted in any way without our prior written consent or the prior written consent of the Content owner, except that you may print out a copy of the Content as permitted on the Site. In doing so, you may not remove or alter, or cause to be removed or altered, any copyright, trademark, trade name, service mark, or any other proprietary notice or legend appearing on any of the Content. Modification or use of the Content except as expressly provided in these Terms of Service violates our intellectual property rights or the intellectual property rights of third parties. Neither title nor intellectual property rights are transferred to you by access to this Site. Notwithstanding this provision, users of our Services and the Site are not permitted to use the Content as a component of, or basis for, a database prepared for use by the said user or any third party. Furthermore, all copies of Content, whether in print or electronic form, must incorporate all of our (or our third-party’s) copyright and/or other intellectual property rights notices.
You agree not to submit or post on our Site any information, data, databases, plans, images or other media, documents, text, digital files or other material ("Submitted Content") that violates or infringes anyone's intellectual-property rights (including copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, publicity rights or (to the extent protectable) confidential ideas) or that violates U.S. law or that is obscene, obscene as to minors, child pornography, defamatory, racist, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable. When submitting data, you, and not us, shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and intellectual property ownership or right to use of all Submitted Content. We shall not be responsible or liable for the deletion, correction, destruction, damage, loss, or failure to store any Submitted Content. By using the Services, each user represents and warrants to us that it has the legal right to submit the Submitted Content. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold us harmless from any liability caused by your submission of Submitted Content in violation of a third party’s copyright or other rights of ownership. We reserve the right to withhold, remove and/or discard Submitted Content without notice for any breach, including without limitation, non-payment of fees. In addition, we reserve the right to withhold, remove and/or discard any Submitted Content submitted to us, which, in our sole opinion, is pornographic or otherwise in violation of our internal policies for publishable material. WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY THAT ANY DATA SUBMITTED TO US WILL BE RETAINED FOR ANY PARTICULAR PERIOD OF TIME, AND YOU AGREE TO ASSUME FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR MAINTAINING COPIES OR BACKUPS OF ALL SUBMITTED CONTENT.
By uploading or submitting Submitted Content to us, our Applications, or on this Site, you grant us a perpetual, irrevocable, nonexclusive, royalty-free worldwide license to reproduce, adapt, distribute, perform (either publicly or by digital audio transmission) or publicly display all or any portion of the Submitted Content on the Site. You further represent and warrant that you own all rights, titles, and interests to such Submitted Content in full and without restrictions or you have the right to use such Submitted Content in the manner which you provided it to us.
You expressly agree that we may remove, disable, or restrict access to or the availability of any Submitted Content from the Site that we believe, in good faith and in our sole discretion, to violate the Terms of Service (whether or not we are actually correct in our assessment). If you believe that we have acted mistakenly with respect to certain material, you may contact us using the contact method provided at the end of these Terms of Service, in which case we may investigate the matter further, though we retain full right and sole discretion as to whether or not to remove the material. Under no circumstances may we be held liable for removing, disabling, or restricting access to or the availability of Submitted Content. The provisions of this section are intended to implement these Terms of Service and are not intended to impose a contractual obligation on us to undertake, or refrain from undertaking any particular course of conduct.
Digital Millennium Copyright Act compliance
We respect the intellectual-property rights of others and expect users of the Site to do the same. In our sole and absolute discretion, we may terminate the accounts of users who infringe the intellectual-property rights of others. You may contact our agent as indicated below if you believe that a work protected by a U.S. copyright that you own has been posted or stored on the Site without authorization. To file a copyright infringement notification with us, you will need to send a written communication that includes substantially the following (please consult your legal counsel or see Section 512(c)(3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to confirm these requirements):
Please note that the information provided in your legal notice may be forwarded to the person who provided the allegedly infringing content.
Under Section 512(f) any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability for damages, so please do not make false claims.
You may contact our agent by email: email@example.com
After submitting a copyright infringement notification, copyright owners may realize that they misidentified content or that they may otherwise change their mind. As a result, we will honor retractions of copyright claims from the party who originally submitted them. To retract a notification, please send a statement of retraction, the complete and specific URL of the content in question, and an electronic signature to the email address we provide at the end of these Terms of Service.
Please note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability.
It is our policy to terminate, in appropriate circumstances, the access rights of repeat infringers
Our Services may include Applications and features that allow you to provide Submitted Material for use or viewing by other users of our Services. For example, Symbium Designs includes, among other things, a public marketplace of different ADU designs and professionals who have published their plans in our Applications. Homeowners who are exploring various ADU designs may select such plans and then contact the design professional as a next step to make an inquiry or purchase. The availability of these Applications and of Symbium Designs may be based on participation from local jurisdictions, over which we have no control and about which we make no warranties.
Though we strive to provide uniform user experiences throughout our Services whenever possible, the particular positioning, display, and appearance of your Submitted Content on our Applications is not guaranteed.
We reserve the right to terminate these Terms of Service with immediate effect at any time and for any reason. Expiration or termination (for any reason) of these Terms of Service, shall not affect any accrued rights or liabilities which either party may then have nor shall it affect any clause which is expressly or by implication intended to continue in force after expiration or termination.
The Site and Services may need updating from time to time. These updates may temporarily disrupt use of our Services and are designed to improve, enhance, and further develop our Services and may take the form of bug fixes, enhanced functions, new Service offerings, and updated Services.
