You do not have the right to separately copy or reproduce any Materials apart from your use of RAVED. All Materials accessed through RAVED are subject to any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notice included in the Materials. We reserve the right to suspend or deny, in our sole discretion, your access to all or any portion of RAVED.

Use Restrictions and Conditions. Your use of RAVED is subject to the following restrictions and conditions, which you agree not to attempt or do while using RAVED:


Materials and User Content. You understand that all Materials and, where permitted, user generated feedback, materials or information (“User Content”) that are accessed or transmitted via RAVED are the sole responsibility of the person or company from whom the Materials originated. You agree that Apptera is not responsible for examining or evaluating the Materials or their accuracy and Apptera does not warrant and will not have any liability or responsibility for any third-party materials or websites, or for any other materials, products, or services of third parties.

Apptera reserves the right to (i) delete, move, edit, refuse to post or take other appropriate action with respect to such Materials or User Content, or other messages, information or files which Apptera, in its sole discretion, deems objectionable and (ii) to restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to all or any part of RAVED, or to deactivate or delete your accounts and all related information and files in your account. By submitting any User Content, you automatically grant (or warrant that the owner of such rights has expressly granted) Apptera a perpetual, fully-paid, royalty-free, irrevocable, world-wide, non-exclusive right and license to use, copy, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, edit, translate, create derivative works from, sell, transmit, transfer, distribute, publicly display and publicly perform such User Content or incorporate such User Content into any form, media or technology now known or later developed throughout the world.

Amendments; Complete Agreement.

Notice of such Amendments will be delivered via RAVED and each such Amendment will be effective immediately after notice unless an earlier time is specified by Apptera.

No Waiver/Severability. The failure of either party to enforce any provision of these Terms shall not be construed as a waiver or limitation of that party’s right to subsequently enforce and compel strict compliance with every provision of these Terms. If any provision of these Terms shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable. If a court finds that any provision of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision it would become valid or enforceable, then such provision shall be deemed to be written, construed and enforced as so limited.
