Terms

Important Information

You should carefully read the following Terms and Conditions (also referred to as the “Terms of Use”, “Terms of Service” or “TOS”). Your use of our service(s) implies that you have read and accepted these Terms and Conditions. The Website (all VM install websites may hereafter be referred to, both individually and collectively, as “The Website”) from which you accessed this agreement is provided to you subject to the conditions listed below. These terms are in addition to any other terms that individual Website owners within the VM install may include for governing access to their Websites.

Any Non-Human Visitors to these Websites shall be considered agents of the individual(s) who controls, authors or otherwise makes use of them. Such individual(s) shall be deemed responsible for the actions of their Non-Human Visitor devices in the same manner as if they personally visited the Website.

The access rights granted to you under the Terms Of Use are non-transferable without the express written permission of the owner of VM install. You are responsible for the actions of any other person who may utilize your access rights on the VM install Website.

Introduction

The following terms and conditions govern all use of the VM install Website(s) and all content, services and products available at or through the Website. The Website is offered subject to your acceptance without modification of all of the terms and conditions contained herein and all other associated operating rules and policies (including, without limitation, VM install Privacy Policy).

Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using the VM install Website. By accessing or using any part of the Website, you agree to become bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access the Website or use any services. If these terms and conditions are considered an offer by the VM install, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms.

The Website is available only to individuals who are at least 13 years old. If you are not yet 13 years old, you must stop using the Website immediately or else provide VM install with written parental approval.

Our basic products and services are free to both Website owners & individual users. However we may offer some paid upgrades for advanced features such as domain hosting or extra disk space or bandwidth.

Our products and services are designed to give Website owners as much control and ownership over their site as possible and to encourage users/members to express themselves freely. However, each site owner must be responsible for the content of their site. In particular, as a site owner, you must make certain that none of the prohibited items listed below appear on your site or get linked to from your site (things like spam, viruses, or hate content).

SPECIAL LICENSE RESTRICTIONS FOR NON-HUMAN VISITORS

A special restriction on a visitor’s license to access the Website applies to all Non-Human Visitors. Non-Human Visitors include, but are not limited to, web spiders, bots, indexers, robots, crawlers, harvesters, or any other computer programs designed to access, read, compile or gather content from the Website automatically.

Email addresses on the VM install are considered proprietary intellectual property. It is recognized that these email addresses are provided for human visitors alone. You acknowledge and agree that each email address the Website contains has a value not less than US $50. You further agree that the compilation, storage, and/or distribution of these addresses substantially diminishes the value of these addresses. Intentional collection, harvesting, gathering, and/or storing the Website’s email addresses is recognized as a violation of this agreement and expressly prohibited.

Ownership

You do not claim intellectual property right or exclusive ownership to any of our products or services, whether modified or unmodified. All products and services are the property of VM install. Our products and services are provided ‘as is’ without warranty of any kind, either expressed or implied. In no event shall our organization (or any business or individual associated with VM install) be liable for any damages including, but not limited to, direct, indirect, special, punitive, incidental or consequential, or other losses arising out of the use of or inability to use our products or services.

Your VM install Account and Site.

If you create a site with VM install, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and site, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the site. You must not describe or assign keywords to your site in a misleading or unlawful manner, including in a manner intended to trade on the name or reputation of others, and VM install may change or remove any description or keyword that it considers inappropriate or unlawful, or otherwise likely to cause VM install to be positioned for possible liability. You must immediately notify VM install of any unauthorized uses of your site, your account or any other breaches of security. VM install will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.

Responsibility of Contributors.

If you operate a Website, comment on a Website, post material to the Website, post links on the Website, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available by means of the Website (any such material, ‘Content’), You are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content. That is the case regardless of whether the Content in question constitutes text, graphics, an audio file, computer software or any other type of electronic content. By making Content available, you represent and warrant that:

  • the downloading, copying and use of the Content will not infringe the proprietary rights, including but not limited to the copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret rights, of any third party;
  • you have fully complied with any third-party licenses relating to the Content, and have done all things necessary to successfully pass through to end users any required terms;
  • the Content does not contain or install any viruses, worms, malware, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content;
  • the Content is not spam, is not machine- or randomly-generated, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);
  • the Content is not obscene, libellous, defamatory, hateful or racially bigoted, does not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party and is not otherwise unlawful;
  • your site is not named in a manner that misleads your readers into thinking that you are another person or company. For example, your site’s URL or name is not the name of a person other than yourself or company other than your own; and
  • you have, in the case of Content that includes computer code, accurately categorized and/or described the type, nature, uses and effects of the materials, whether requested to do so by VM install or otherwise.

By submitting Content to VM install for inclusion on the Website, you grant VM install a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting your site or Content. If you delete Content and advise VM install, VM install will use reasonable efforts to remove said Content from the Website (generally within two business days), but you acknowledge that caching and/or other references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable.

Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, VM install has the right (though not the obligation) to, in VM install’s sole discretion (i) refuse or remove any content that, in VM install’s reasonable opinion, violates any VM install’s policy or is in any way harmful, unlawful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the Website to any individual or entity for any reason, in VM install’s sole discretion. VM install will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.

Fees and Payment.

Optional premium paid services (such as domain purchases, etc.) may be available on the Website. By selecting a premium service you agree to pay VM install the monthly or annual subscription fees indicated for that service. Payments will be charged on the day you sign up for a premium service and will cover the use of that service for a monthly or annual period as indicated. Premium service fees are not refundable.

Responsibility of Website Visitors.

VM install has not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, posted to the Website, and cannot therefore be responsible for that material’s content, use or effects. By operating the Website, VM install does not represent or imply that it endorses the material there posted, or that it believes such material to be accurate, useful or non-harmful. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. Any user or site owner who finds content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, or content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, or other errors has a responsibility to report such Content to VM install. In the same way, anyone who discovers Content on the Website that contains material that violates the privacy or publicity rights, or infringes the intellectual property and other proprietary rights, of third parties, or the downloading, copying or use of which is subject to additional terms and conditions, stated or unstated, must report the same to VM install. VM install disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from the use by visitors of the Website, or from any downloading by those visitors of content there posted.

Content Posted on Other Websites.

We have not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, made available through the Websites and WebPages to which VM install links, and that link to VM install. VM install does not have any control over those non-VM install Websites and WebPages, and is not responsible for their contents or their use. By linking to a non-VM install Website or webpage, VM install does not represent or imply that it endorses such Website or webpage. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. VM install disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from your use of non-VM install Websites and WebPages.

Copyright Infringement and DMCA Policy.

As VM install asks others to respect its intellectual property rights, it respects the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that material located on or linked to by VM install violates your copyright, you are encouraged to notify VM install. VM install will respond to all such notices, including as required or appropriate by removing the infringing material or disabling all links to the infringing material. In the case of a visitor who may infringe or repeatedly infringes the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of VM install or others, VM install may, in its discretion, terminate or deny access to and use of the Website. In the case of such termination, VM install will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid to VM install.
