ReplyAll is an exciting new blogging platform that allows users to have exclusive conversations in a public forum and to view selected other individuals’ conversations by accessing its host site (“Site”).
These Terms shall govern your use of the ReplyAll services as a registered user, including our various websites, APIs, email notifications, applications, buttons, and widgets, (the "Services" or "ReplyAll"), and any information, text, graphics, photos or other materials uploaded, downloaded or appearing on the Services (collectively referred to as "Content"). Your access to and use of the Services are conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms.
By using any part of the Site or Service as a registered user, you agree to be bound by these Terms. ReplyAll will notify you in the event of any change to the Terms. If you do not agree to all of the Terms, then you may not use our Services. In addition, ReplyAll may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services (or any features within the Services) to you or to users generally and may not be able to provide you with prior notice. We also retain the right to create limits on use and storage at our sole discretion at any time without prior notice to you.
By registering, you consent to entering into a binding contract with ReplyAll and agree to be bound by all of the Terms stated herein. In consideration for your use of the Services, you agree to be responsible for all aspects of your use, including for any Content you post to the Services, and for any consequences thereof, as well as to follow all rules and obligations stated in the Terms.
All of the Content on the Site is accessible whether or not you register for an account and you are not bound by these Terms simply by accessing the Site. But, in order to use our Site or Service to start conversations, follow Casts or reply to any of the individual conversations, you must first register for an account. By registering as a user, you agree to provide accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted (such information being the “Registration Data”) and to maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or ReplyAll has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is inaccurate, not current or incomplete, ReplyAll may deny you access to areas requiring registration, at its sole discretion.
If you are a member of a Cast on ReplyAll with the ability to participate in conversations ("Cast Member"), the Content you submit, post, or display will be able to be viewed by other users of the Services and through third party services and websites. If you are not a Cast Member, the Content that you post will be viewable initially just to the Cast Members, but the Cast Members may then choose to add your Content, at their sole discretion, to the conversation, at which point the Content that you have previously submitted, posted, or displayed will be able to be viewed by other users of the Services and through third party services and websites. In other words, once you post anything to ReplyAll, your posting could ultimately become viewed throughout the world, with no further conduct on your part. Thus, you should make sure to only provide Content that you are comfortable sharing with others under these Terms.
You may use the Services only if you can form a binding contract with ReplyAll and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction. If you are accepting these Terms and using the Services on behalf of a company, organization, government, or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so, and that both you and your company, organization, government, or other legal entity shall be jointly and severally liable for any violation of the Terms or any other misconduct during use of Service. You may use the Services only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations.
You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the Services and for any activities or actions under your password. We encourage you to use "strong" passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. ReplyAll cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above. IF THERE IS UNAUTHORIZED USE OF YOUR ACCOUNT, YOU WILL BE LIABLE FOR THE LOSSES INCURRED BY YOURSELF, REPLYALL AND OTHERS DUE TO ANY UNAUTHORIZED USE.
Content on the Services
All Content, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, is the sole responsibility of the person who originated such Content. ReplyAll may not monitor or control the Content posted via the Services and, we cannot take responsibility for such Content. Any use or reliance on any Content or materials posted via the Services or obtained by you through the Services is at your own risk.
ReplyAll does not endorse, support, represent or guarantee the completeness, truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any Content or communications posted via the Services or endorse any opinions expressed via the Services, nor does ReplyAll take any responsibility for the decisions about who to include and exclude in particular Casts. You understand that by using the Services, you may be exposed to Content that might be offensive, harmful, inaccurate or otherwise inappropriate, or in some cases, postings that have been mislabeled or are otherwise deceptive. Under no circumstances will ReplyAll be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any Content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available via the Services or broadcast elsewhere.
In addition, this Site provides, or third parties may provide, links to other World Wide Web sites or resources, including, but not limited to, third party advertisers. Recognizing that ReplyAll has no control over such sites and resources, you acknowledge and agree that ReplyAll is not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources, and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products or other materials on or available from such sites or resources.

Disclaimers and Limitations of Liability
Please read this section carefully since it limits the liability of ReplyAll and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, related companies, officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, partners, and licensors (collectively, the "ReplyAll Entities"). Each of the subsections below only applies up to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties or the limitation of liability in contracts, and as a result the contents of this section may not apply to you. Nothing in this section is intended to limit any rights you may have which may not be lawfully limited.
A. The Services are Available "AS-IS"
Your access to and use of the Services or any Content are at your own risk. You understand and agree that the Services are provided to you on an "AS IS" and "AS AVAILABLE" basis. Without limiting the foregoing, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, THE REPLYALL ENTITIES DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.
The ReplyAll Entities make no warranty and disclaim all responsibility and liability for: (i) the completeness, accuracy, availability, timeliness, security or reliability of the Services or any Content; (ii) any harm to your computer system, loss of data, or other harm that results from your access to or use of the Services or any Content; (iii) the deletion of, or the failure to store or to transmit, any Content and other communications maintained by the Services; and (iv) whether the Services will meet your requirements or be available on an uninterrupted, secure, or error-free basis. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained from the ReplyAll Entities or through the Services, will create any warranty not expressly made herein.
The Services may contain links to third-party websites or resources. You acknowledge and agree that the ReplyAll Entities are not responsible or liable for: (i) the availability or accuracy of such websites or resources; or (ii) the content, products, or services on or available from such websites or resources. Links to such websites or resources do not imply any endorsement by the ReplyAll Entities of such websites or resources or the content, products, or services available from such websites or resources. You acknowledge sole responsibility for and assume all risk arising from your use of any such websites or resources.
C. Limitation of Liability
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE REPLYALL ENTITIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUES, WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, USE, GOOD-WILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM (i) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES; (ii) ANY CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES; (iii) ANY CONTENT OBTAINED FROM THE SERVICES; OR (iv) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR CONTENT. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF THE REPLYALL ENTITIES EXCEED THE GREATER OF ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS (U.S. $100.00) OR THE AMOUNT YOU PAID REPLYALL, IF ANY, IN THE PAST SIX MONTHS FOR THE SERVICES GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM.
THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS SUBSECTION SHALL APPLY TO ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, STATUTE, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT THE REPLYALL ENTITIES HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
A. Waiver and Severability
The failure of ReplyAll to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision. In the event that any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, then that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
Any controversy or claim arising out of, in connection with, or in any way relating to the Terms of Service, with the exception of those controversies or claims specifically excluded in the following paragraph, shall be settled by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in connection with its rules.
You and ReplyAll agree that the following disputes are not subject to this binding arbitration provision: (1) any disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of either any of your intellectual property rights or ReplyAll’s intellectual property rights; and (2) any claim for injunctive relief.
C. Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
All claims, legal proceedings or litigation arising in connection with the Services shall be brought solely in the federal or state courts located in New York, New York, United States and shall be judged exclusively by the law of the State of New York. You consent to the jurisdiction of and venue in such courts and waive any objection as to inconvenient forum. THIS CHOICE OF LAW CLAUSE SHALL APPLY WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICT OF LAW PRINCIPLES AND IRRESPECTIVE OF THE UNDERLYING CAUSE OF ACTION.
If you are a federal, state, or local government entity in the United States using the Services in your official capacity and legally unable to accept the controlling law, jurisdiction or venue clauses above, then those clauses do not apply to you. For such U.S. federal government entities, these Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the United States of America (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the State of New York (excluding choice of law).
The Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you but may be assigned by ReplyAll without restriction. Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of these Terms of Service shall be deemed void.

YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE THAT BY SUBMITTING USER CONTENT TO REPLYALL, NO CONFIDENTIAL, FIDUCIARY, CONTRACTUALLY IMPLIED OR OTHER RELATIONSHIP IS CREATED BETWEEN YOU AND REPLYALL.
F. Statute of Limitations
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the use of the Site or the Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
