Thank you for your interest in using the mobile and online services (the "Services") operated by DeepVu, Inc. ("DeepVu") and offered through the website located at deepVu.co, vufind.com, developers.vufind.com, myvu.co, and vuhunt.com (the "Sites") and certain websites operated by our partners, including without limitation, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Flickr (the "Partner Sites"). These Terms of Service ("Terms") govern your use of the Services and the Site (collectively, the "DeepVu Network"). Please read these Terms carefully. By using the DeepVu Network, you are stating that you have read and understand, and agree to be bound by, these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, you are not permitted to use the DeepVu Network.
DeepVu has a unique approach to building the interest graph of a community of mobile or web users whether they are on a social app, an ecommerce site, an image-sharing site, a social game, or fans of a particular brand. Our approach relies on a wide spectrum of user signals to build a comprehensive interest profile (VuGraph) that is a superset of what can be inferred from analyzing noisy signals such as likes/plus-ones and comments etc.
DeepVu does not claim ownership of any information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages, tags or other materials you submit for display or distribution to others through the DeepVu Network (collectively, "User Submissions"). As between DeepVu and you, you own all rights to your User Submissions. However, you grant to DeepVu an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, fully-paid, worldwide, license, with the right to sublicense through multiple tiers, to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform, and publicly display your User Submissions (in whole or in part) in any format or medium now known or later developed. DeepVu reserves the right to display advertisements in connection with User Submissions and to use User Submissions for advertising and promotional purposes. DeepVu does not pre-screen User Submissions and you agree that you are solely responsible for all of your User Submissions. DeepVu is not required to host, display, or distribute any User Submissions, and may remove at any time or refuse any User Submissions. DeepVu is not responsible for any loss, theft or damage of any kind to any User Submissions. You represent and warrant that your User Submissions and DeepVu's authorized use thereof do not and will not infringe the rights of any third party (including, without limitation, intellectual property rights, rights of privacy or publicity, or any other legal or moral rights).
If you choose to provide technical, business or other feedback to DeepVu concerning the DeepVu Network or any DeepVu products or services (collectively, "Feedback"), DeepVu will be free to use, disclose, reproduce, license, or otherwise distribute or exploit such Feedback in its sole discretion without any obligations or restrictions of any kind, including intellectual property rights or licensing obligations. You understand and agree that the incorporation by DeepVu of Feedback into any of its products or services does not grant you any proprietary rights therein.
DeepVu respects the intellectual property rights of others. Accordingly, DeepVu has a policy of removing User Submissions that violate copyright law, suspending access to the DeepVu Network (or any portion thereof) to any user who uses the DeepVu Network in violation of copyright law, and/or terminating in appropriate circumstances the account of any user who uses the DeepVu Network in violation of copyright law. Pursuant to Title 17 of the United States Code, Section 512, DeepVu has implemented procedures for receiving written notification of claimed copyright infringement and for processing such claims in accordance with such law. If you believe your copyright is being infringed by a user of the DeepVu Network, please provide written notice to the following DeepVu agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement.
Your written notice must: (a) contain your physical or electronic signature; (b) identify the copyrighted work alleged to have been infringed; (c) identify the allegedly infringing material in a sufficiently precise manner to allow DeepVu to locate that material; (d) contain adequate information by which DeepVu can contact you (including postal address, telephone number, and e-mail address); (e) contain a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or the law; (f) contain a statement that the information in the written notice is accurate; and (g) contain a statement, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner. Please do not send notices or inquiries unrelated to alleged copyright infringement to DeepVu's designated agent.
DeepVu may terminate your DeepVu Network membership or suspend your access to all or part of the DeepVu Network, without notice, if you violate these Terms or you engage in any conduct that DeepVu, in its sole and absolute discretion, believes is in violation of any applicable law or regulation or is otherwise harmful to the interests of DeepVu, any other DeepVu Network user, or any third party. You may discontinue your participation in and access to the DeepVu Network at any time.
DeepVu may, in its sole and absolute discretion, change these Terms from time to time. DeepVu will post notice of such changes on the Site. If you object to any such changes, your sole recourse will be to cease using the DeepVu Network. Continued use of the DeepVu Network following notice of any such changes will indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes.
DeepVu reserves the right to modify or discontinue the DeepVu Network with or without notice to you.
DeepVu reserves the right at any time to charge fees for access to new DeepVu Network content or services or to portions of the existing DeepVu Network content or services or to the DeepVu Network as a whole. In no event will you be charged for access to any DeepVu Network content or service, or to the DeepVu Network as a whole, unless DeepVu obtains your prior agreement to pay such fees. If you do not consent to the payment of such fees, however, you may not have access to paid content or services. Details regarding the services you will receive in exchange for the payment of fees, as well as any payment terms and conditions that apply, will be disclosed to you prior to your agreement to pay such fees. All such terms will be deemed to be a part of (and are hereby incorporated by reference into) these Terms.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations and disclaimers may not apply to you. To the extent that DeepVu may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty or limit its liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of DeepVu's liability will be the minimum permitted under such applicable law.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless DeepVu and its officers, directors, employees, consultants and agents from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, expenses, fees (including reasonable attorneys' fees) that such parties may incur as a result of or arising from your (or anyone using your account's) violation of these Terms. DeepVu reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, and in such case, you agree to cooperate with DeepVu's defense of such claim.
"DeepVu" and the DeepVu logo, and certain other of the names, logos, and materials displayed in the DeepVu Network, constitute trademarks, trade names, or service marks ("Marks") of DeepVu or other entities.

All lawsuits arising from or relating to these Terms or your use of the DeepVu Network will be brought in the Federal or State courts located in San Francisco County, California, and you hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of such courts for such purpose. The failure of DeepVu to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
