Please read these Terms of Use (the “Agreement“ or “Terms of Use“) carefully before using the services offered by BitTorrent, Inc. (“BitTorrent” or the “Company”). This Agreement sets forth the legally binding terms and conditions for your use of the website at http://now.bt.co, content.bittorrent.com and all subdomains, all other sites owned and operated by BitTorrent that redirect to http://now.bt.co, content.bittorrent.com, and all subdomains (collectively, the “Site”), your download, use or transmission of a BitTorrent Bundle or any other content or material (“Content”) made available by or through your use of the service owned and operated by the Company (together with the Site, the “Service”). By using the Service in any manner, including, but not limited to, visiting or browsing the Site or contributing content, information, or other materials or services to the Site, you agree to be bound by this Agreement.

The Service is offered subject to acceptance of all of the terms and conditions contained in these Terms of Use, including the Privacy Policy available at www.bittorrent.com/legal/privacy, and all other operating rules, policies, and procedures that may be published on the Site by the Company, which are incorporated by reference. These Terms of Use apply to users who publish any Content or take any action on or through the Service (“Publishers”) and other visitors to and users of the Service (“Subscribers”) (collectively, “Users”). In addition, some services offered through the Service may be subject to additional terms and conditions adopted by the Company. Your use of those services is subject to those additional terms and conditions, which are incorporated into these Terms of Use by this reference.

The Company reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms of Use by posting the updated terms on the Site. It is your responsibility to check the Terms of Use periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Service following the posting of any changes to the Terms of Use constitutes acceptance of those changes. Your use of the Services is subject to the most current version of the Terms posted on or through the affected Service at the time of such use.

The Company reserves the right to change, suspend, or discontinue the Service (including, but not limited to, the availability of any feature, database, or Content) at any time for any reason. The Company may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Service without notice or liability.

The Service is available only to individuals who are at least 18 years old (and at least the legal age in your jurisdiction). You represent and warrant that if you are an individual, you are at least 18 years old and of legal age in your jurisdiction to form a binding contract, and that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful. The Company reserves the right to ask for proof of age from you and your account may be suspended until satisfactory proof of age is provided. The Company may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Service to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. This provision is void where prohibited by law and the right to access the Service is revoked in those jurisdictions.

You will not use, display, share, or transfer a user’s data in a manner inconsistent with these Terms of Use.

You will delete all data you receive from us concerning a subscriber if the subscriber asks you to do so, and will provide a mechanism for subscribers to make such a request.

You will not directly or indirectly transfer any data you receive from us to (or use such data in connection with) any ad network, ad exchange, data broker, or other advertising related toolset, even if a user consents to that transfer or use.

You will not sell user data. If you are acquired by or merge with a third party, you can continue to use subscriber data to promote your Bundles, but you cannot transfer user data outside of your BitTorrent Now campaign.

We can require you to delete user data if you use it in a way that we determine in our sole discretion is inconsistent with users’ expectations.

We can limit your access to data and make no promises or guarantees about your access to data.

Additionally, you shall not: (i) take any action that imposes or may impose (as determined by the Company in its sole discretion) an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on the Company’s or its third-party providers’ infrastructure; (ii) interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Service or any activities conducted on the Service; (iii) bypass any measures the Company may use to prevent or restrict access to the Service (or other accounts, computer systems, or networks connected to the Service); (iv) run Maillist, Listserv, or any form of auto-responder or “spam“ on the Service; or (v) use manual or automated software, devices, or other processes to “crawl“ or “spider“ any page of the Site.

Publishers agree to not abuse other users' personal information. Abuse is defined as using personal information for any purpose other than Publisher for sending information about the Publisher in the normal course of Publisher’s mailing list, or is not related to fulfilling delivery of a product or service explicitly specified in the Publisher’s Project.

E-mail Submission or Registration

You may download some BitTorrent Bundles without any further action. However, as a condition of receiving certain BitTorrent Bundles or additional Content, you may be required to submit your e-mail address to sign up for the mailing lists of BitTorrent and the Publisher of that BitTorrent Bundle. In addition, as a condition of using certain aspects of the Service, such as the publishing function, you may be required to register with the Company and select a screen name (“User ID“) and password. You shall provide your accurate e-mail address. You shall not use an e-mail address of another person. By downloading from or accessing the Site or Service or downloading or using any BitTorrent Bundle, you hereby understand and agree that BitTorrent has no control over or liability for any Publisher or its actions and you hereby hold BitTorrent harmless in connection with any BitTorrent Bundle or any Publisher or its actions.

Third-Party Sites

The Service may permit you to link to other websites or resources on the internet, and other websites or resources may contain links to the Site. When you access third-party websites, you do so at your own risk. Those other websites are not under the Company's control, and you acknowledge that the Company is not liable for the content, functions, accuracy, legality, appropriateness, or any other aspect of those other websites or resources. The inclusion on another website of any link to the Site does not imply endorsement by or affiliation with the Company. You further acknowledge and agree that the Company shall not be liable for any damage related to the use of any content, goods, or services available through any third-party website or resource.

Content and License

You agree that the Service contains Content provided by the Company and Publishers and Users and that the Content may be protected by copyrights, trademarks, service marks, patents, trade secrets, or other rights and laws. You shall abide by and maintain all copyright and other legal notices, information, and restrictions contained in any Content accessed through the Service.

The Company grants to each subscriber of the Service a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable and non-transferable license to use the Content, solely for personal, non-commercial use. Use, reproduction (other than in connection with download or upload of the Content torrent as provided), modification, distribution, or storage of any Content for other than personal, non-commercial use is prohibited without prior written permission from the Company, or from the copyright holder. You shall not sell, license, rent, or otherwise use or exploit any Content for commercial use or in any way that violates any third-party right.

The Service is provided “as is” and “as available” and is without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of title, non-infringement, merchantability, and fitness for a particular purpose, and any warranties implied by any course of performance or usage of trade, all of which are expressly disclaimed.

Your use of the Service is solely at your own risk. Some states or countries do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

By submitting or publishing Content, you hereby grant BitTorrent a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the content, and the right to sublicense such rights, in connection with and anywhere on or through the Service and/or BitTorrent's (and its successors', assigns’ and affiliates') business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Services (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels. You also hereby grant each user of the Services a non-exclusive license to access your content through the Service, and to use, reproduce, distribute, display and perform such content as permitted through the functionality of the Service and under these Terms of Service. You also hereby grant BitTorrent (and its successors, assigns and affiliates) a non-exclusive license to use its name, logo or assets in promoting the content or the Services or in connection with other publicity or marketing materials (including Web sites, blogs and printed collateral) without your prior written approval but will not attribute any quote to you or specific endorsement by you without your permission.

Fees and Payments

Joining BitTorrent is free. However, we may charge fees for certain services. When you use a service that has a fee, you have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged. Changes to fees are effective after we provide you with notice by posting the changes on the Site. You are responsible for paying all fees and taxes associated with your use of the Service.

Additional terms for publishers who sell a Bundle: Payments for Bundles are collected by payment providers, such as Paypal or Stripe, who will process payments under the terms of their agreement with you. You are acting as the merchant, and you agree to pay BitTorrent 10% of all such payments, including but not limited to directly from the payment provider to BitTorrent. Each payment provider is its own company, and BitTorrent isn’t responsible for its performance or actions.

Indemnification

You shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Company, its affiliates, and each of its and its affiliates’ employees, contractors, directors, suppliers, and representatives from all liabilities, claims, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees and other legal costs, that arise from or relate to your use or misuse of, or access to, the Service and Content, or otherwise from the Content that you have published or otherwise made available, violation of the Terms of Use, or infringement by you, or any third party using your account, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity. The Company reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will assist and cooperate with the Company in asserting any available defenses.
