You must be at least 13 years old to use the Service.
You may not use the Service for any illegal or unauthorized purpose. You agree to comply with all laws, rules and regulations (for example, federal, state, local and provincial) applicable to your use of the Service and your Content (defined below), including but not limited to, copyright laws. You are solely responsible for your conduct and any data, text, files, information, usernames, images, graphics, photos, profiles, audio and video clips, sounds, musical works, works of authorship, applications, links and other content or materials (collectively, “Content”) that you submit, post or display on or via the Service.
You must not access Matissa’s private API by means other than those permitted by Matissa.
You must not interfere or disrupt the Service or servers or networks connected to the Service, including by transmitting any worms, viruses, spyware, malware or any other code of a destructive or disruptive nature. You may not inject content or code or otherwise alter or interfere with the way any Matissa page is rendered or displayed in a user’s browser or device.
We reserve the right to refuse access to the Service to anyone for any reason at any time. There may be links from the Service, or from communications you receive from the Service, to third-party web sites or features. There may also be links to third-party web sites or features in images or comments within the Service. The Service also includes third-party content that we do not control, maintain or endorse. Functionality on the Service may also permit interactions between the Service and a third-party web site or feature, including applications that connect the Service or your profile on the Service with a third-party web site or feature. For example, the Service may include a feature that enables you to share Content from the Service or your Content with a third party, which may be publicly posted on that third party’s service or application. Using this functionality typically requires you to login to your account on the third-party service and you do so at your own risk. Matissa does not control any of these third-party web services or any of their content. You expressly acknowledge and agree that Matissa is in no way responsible or liable for any such third-party services or features. YOUR CORRESPONDENCE AND BUSINESS DEALINGS WITH THIRD PARTIES FOUND THROUGH THE SERVICE ARE SOLELY BETWEEN YOU AND THE THIRD PARTY. You may choose, at your sole and absolute discretion and risk, to use applications that connect the Service or your profile on the Service with a third-party service (each, an “Application”) and such Application may interact with, connect to or gather and/or pull information from and to your Service profile.
By using such Applications, you acknowledge and agree to the following: (i) your use of an Application is at your own option and risk, and you will hold the Matissa Parties (defined below) harmless for activity related to the Application. You agree that you are responsible for all data charges you incur through use of the Service. We prohibit crawling, scraping, caching or otherwise accessing any content on the Service via automated means, including but not limited to, user profiles and photos (except as may be the result of standard search engine protocols or technologies used by a search engine with Matissa’s express consent).
Matissa does not claim ownership of any Content that you post on or through the Service. Some of the Service is supported by advertising revenue and may display advertisements and promotions, and you hereby agree that Matissa may place such advertising and promotions on the Service or on, about, or in conjunction with your Content. The manner, mode and extent of such advertising and promotions are subject to change without specific notice to you.
You acknowledge that we may not always identify paid services, sponsored content, or commercial communications as such.
The Service contains content owned or licensed by Matissa (“Matissa Content”). Matissa Content is protected by copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret and other laws, and, as between you and Matissa, Matissa owns and retains all rights in the Matissa Content and the Service. You will not remove, alter or conceal any copyright, trademark, service mark or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the Matissa Content and you will not reproduce, modify, adapt, prepare derivative works based on, perform, display, publish, distribute, transmit, broadcast, sell, license or otherwise exploit the Matissa Content.
The Matissa name and logo are trademarks of Lextre, and may not be copied, imitated or used, in whole or in part, without the prior written permission of Lextre, except in accordance with our brand guidelines. In addition, all page headers, custom graphics, button icons and scripts are service marks, trademarks and/or trade dress of Matissa, and may not be copied, imitated or used, in whole or in part, without prior written permission from Lextre.
Although it is Lextre’s intention for the Service to be available as much as possible, there will be occasions when the Service may be interrupted, including, without limitation, for scheduled maintenance or upgrades, for emergency repairs, or due to failure of telecommunications links and/or equipment. Also, Matissa reserves the right to remove any Content from the Service for any reason, without prior notice. Content removed from the Service may continue to be stored by Matissa, including, without limitation, in order to comply with certain legal obligations, but may not be retrievable without a valid court order. Consequently, Matissa encourages you to maintain your own backup of your Content. In other words, Matissa is not a backup service and you agree that you will not rely on the Service for the purposes of Content backup or storage. Matissa will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the Services, or the loss of any Content. You also acknowledge that the Internet may be subject to breaches of security and that the submission of Content or other information may not be secure.
