1. Using Athes

a. Who may access Athes. You may access Athes only if you are a registered user (a “Registrant”). To apply to be a Registrant, check the requirements in paragraphs b. and c. below. We may approve or deny your request to register in our sole discretion. We may also suspend, block, or terminate your access to Athes for any reason, including violation of this Terms of Use or the Privacy Policy.

We love when people use Athes but do have some limits on who may register.

b. Registrant requirements - Location. You must be located in the United States to be a Registrant. Although Athes is accessible worldwide, it is not necessarily appropriate for use outside the United States. Athes and your registration are void where prohibited. If you choose to access Athes from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and you are solely responsible for complying with applicable local laws.

While Athes may be accessible via the Internet from Albania to Zambia, it is not designed for use in all countries.

c. Registrant requirements – Age. To request to be a Registrant, you must meet one of the following criteria: (a) be 18 years of age or older; (b) be age 13 through 17 and certify that you and your parent or guardian have reviewed and agreed to this Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy together and that your parent or guardian consented to you being a Registrant; or (c) be ages 11 or 12 with verifiable parental consent received in accordance with our Children’s Privacy Policy.

Different requirements apply to individuals of different ages. If you are 17 years of age or younger, parental consent is required to use Athes.

d. Account. Upon approval as a Registrant, and subject to this Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy, we grant you permission and a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to use Athes.

You must follow the rules in this Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy when using Athes.

Anything that you upload or otherwise make available on Athes is referred to as “Your Content.” You retain all rights in, and are solely responsible for, Your Content. You are solely responsible for obtaining any and all consents or permissions to upload or make available Your Content and have sole responsibility for complying with any and all laws regarding Your Content. Once you elect to share Your Content through Athes, it cannot always be withdrawn or returned to you.

You are responsible for what you upload and share, and once it’s uploaded and shared, it cannot always be taken back.

b. How we can use Your Content. You grant Athes a nonexclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide license to use, store, display, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute Your Content on the app for the purposes of operating, developing, providing, and using the app. Nothing in this Terms of Use shall restrict other legal rights Athes may have to Your Content. We reserve the right to remove or modify Your Content for any reason, including when we believe it violates this Terms of Use or our Privacy Policy.

You own your content, but you give us permission to use it in order to operate and provide the app.

c. How long we keep Your Content. Except as set forth in the Privacy Policy, following termination or deactivation of your account, or if you remove any of Your Content from Athes, we may retain Your Content for a commercially reasonable period of time for backup, archival, or audit purposes. Furthermore, Athes may retain and continue to use, store, display, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute any of Your Content that you have shared and that others have received and/or stored through Athes.

If you close your account or remove content, we may keep a copy of it for certain business purposes.

d. Feedback you provide. If you choose to submit comments, ideas or feedback to us, you agree that we are free to use them without any restriction or compensation to you. By accepting your submission, Athes does not waive any rights to use similar or related feedback previously known to Athes, or developed by its employees, or obtained from sources other than you.

We love feedback and your ideas, and if you submit a comment to us, we may use it however we want.

e. Athes Content. As between you and Athes, we own the “Athes Content,” which includes but is not limited to visual interfaces, interactive features, graphics, design, compilation, including, but not limited to, our compilation of Your Content and other Athes Content, computer code, products, software, and all other elements and components of Athes excluding any third-party content. We also own the copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade names, and other intellectual and proprietary rights throughout the world (“IP Rights”) associated with the Athes Content and Athes, which are protected by copyright, trade dress, patent, trademark laws and all other applicable intellectual and proprietary rights and laws. As such, you may not modify, reproduce, distribute, create derivative works or adaptations of, publicly display or in any way exploit any of the Athes Content in whole or in part except as expressly authorized by us. Except as expressly and unambiguously provided herein, we do not grant you any express or implied rights, and all rights in and to Athes and the Athes Content are retained by us.

The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts for matters related to data security, intellectual property or unauthorized access to Athes.

If there is a dispute between you and us, we hope we can work it out. If not, the dispute will be resolved through this arbitration process.

12. Governing Law and Jurisdiction

This Terms of Use shall be governed by the laws of the State of Connecticut, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. We each agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in Fairfield County, Connecticut or the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut, for any actions not subject to Section 11 (Arbitration). Athes is controlled and operated from the United States, and we make no representations regarding compliance with the laws of any foreign jurisdiction.

If we have a dispute, we will use Connecticut law and any lawsuits will be heard in Connecticut.
