While we take great care to only work with Third-Parties that we trust, we have no control over and are not responsible for the content and operation, or the privacy or other practices, of such Third-Party Services. The fact that our Services contain or direct you to such Third-Party Services does not mean we approve or endorse them.

Social Media and Other Services: Our Services do not require connecting to any third-party social media and other service providers such as Google or Facebook.
However, you have the option of granting us access to your accounts with certain third-party social media and other service providers, such as Facebook or Google (each, a “Social Network Provider”), so that you can share photos, contacts and other content (collectively, the “Social Content”) from those accounts with us.
By granting us access to your Social Content, you understand that we will access, make available and store (if applicable) your Social Content so that it is available through the Services exclusively for your use within the Services.
You have the ability to disable the connection between our Services and your social network accounts at any time.

Such license granted to Storyworth is worldwide, perpetual, sublicensable and transferable. In short, what belongs to you stays yours – we will merely use that Content as agreed on with you.

Copyright and Trademark Issues: While we are not obligated to review Content for copyright or trademark infringement, we are committed to protecting copyrights and trademarks and expect users of our Services to do the same.

Disclaimer of Warranties: We provide our Services using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care and we hope that you will enjoy using them, but we do not make any promises about our Services. FOR EXAMPLE, WE DON’T MAKE ANY COMMITMENTS ABOUT THE CONTENT WITHIN THE SERVICES, THE SPECIFIC FUNCTION OF THE SERVICES, OR THEIR RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR NEEDS. WE PROVIDE THE SERVICES “AS IS”. SOME JURISDICTIONS PROVIDE FOR CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIKE THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXCLUDE ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES.
Indemnification and Limitation of Liability: You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Storyworth from all damages, losses, expenses (including reasonable legal fees), claims, suits or actions related to your breach of these Terms or violation of applicable laws.
WHEN PERMITTED BY LAW, STORYWORTH, AND ITS SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR CONTENT, FINANCIAL LOSSES OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF STORYWORTH, AND ITS SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, FOR ANY CLAIM UNDER THESE TERMS, IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US TO USE THE SERVICES (OR IF YOU HAVE NOT PAID ANYTHING TO US, THEN $50). YOU SPECIFICALLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT STORYWORTH IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF THIRD PARTIES OR ANY THIRD-PARTY CONTENT.
YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH ANY PRODUCT YOU HAVE PURCHASED IS TO OBTAIN A REFUND, AND YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH ANY OTHER PORTION OF THE SERVICES IS TO STOP USING SUCH SERVICES.THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS PARAGRAPH SHALL APPLY WHETHER THE CLAIM IS BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND EVEN IF STORYWORTH HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
Arbitration Agreement; No Class Action. You and we agree that you (in your individual capacity only) and we may bring claims against each other in arbitration only, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, consolidated, private attorney general, or representative action, and that any dispute between you and us (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination of these Terms) will be determined by binding individual (not class) arbitration. The arbitrator has the authority to, among other things, enforce the prohibition on class or representative actions. Unless both you and we agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief or request for relief (such as a request for public injunctive relief) and all appeals have been exhausted or the decision is otherwise final, then the parties agree that such a claim or request for relief shall be decided by a court only after all other claims and requests for relief are arbitrated. If in the process of arbitrating a dispute this Arbitration Agreement is invalidated in whole, the parties agree that they may seek to resolve the dispute solely in the federal or state courts of New Castle County, Delaware, USA.
THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. The arbitrator can award the same damages and relief to you or us as a court (including attorneys’ fees and costs where allowable under applicable law). This arbitration provision will survive termination of these Terms.
Modifying or Terminating the Services: We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or remove functionalities or features, and we may suspend, add limits to or stop a Service altogether. You can stop using our Services at any time, although we’ll be sorry to see you go. We believe that you own your Content and preserving your access to such Content is important. If we discontinue part of the Services, where reasonably possible, we will give you reasonable advance notice and a chance to get Content out of that part of the Services. We have the right to terminate your account for any reason. If we choose to terminate your account, we’ll send you a digital backup, and refund all non-book purchases.

By continuing to access or use the Services after updated terms have been posted, you agree to be bound by the updated terms. If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of that Service. We can also notify you of any new changes to our Terms via email if you sign up for email updates here.
Miscellaneous: These Terms control the relationship between Storyworth and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary. These Terms are not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with our prior written consent. If you do not comply with these Terms, and we don’t take action right away, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future). If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
The laws of Delaware, U.S.A., excluding Delaware's conflict of laws rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Services.
