These terms and conditions (the “Terms”) govern your use of the Trusted Few website, https://www.trustedfew.com (the “Site”). By accessing this Site, you acknowledge and agree to be bound by the Terms.

 

Definitions

“You”, “your”, or “user” refer to you, the user of the Site. Your use occurs whenever you access the Site. “We”, “us”, or “our” refer to Trusted Few. “Content” means text, images, photos, audio, video, ratings, reviews, transactions, messages, information, or all other forms of data or communication. “User Content” means Content submitted or transmitted by Site users. “Trusted Few Content” means Content created and made available by Trusted Few in connection with the Site. “Third Party Content” means Content that originates from parties other than Trusted Few or its users, and made available in connection with the Site.

 

Changes to the Terms of Service

We may modify the Terms from time to time at our sole discretion. If we make material changes to these Terms, we will provide notification of any material change via a posting to the http://www.trustedfew.com website. It is your responsibility to review any changes, and each time that you use the Site you are bound by such changes. If you use the Site after we post new Terms on our Site, you thereby automatically accept the Terms as modified.

 

Using the Site

We grant you permission to use the Site subject to the restrictions in these Terms. You use this Site at your own risk, including the risk that you could be exposed to Content that is offensive, inaccurate, objectionable, or otherwise inappropriate.

These Terms are a contract between you and Trusted Few. To access or use the Site, you must be 18 years or older and have the necessary power and authority to enter into these Terms. You may not access or use the Site if you are a competitor of ours, if we have previously banned you from the Site, or if we have previously closed your account.

 

Your User Account

You must create an account and provide information about yourself in order to use some of the features that are offered through the Site. You agree to keep your login name and password confidential. You are also responsible for all activities that occur in connection with your account. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account, or of any other security breach of which you become aware. We reserve the right to close your account at any time for any or no reason.

Your account is for your use only. We ask that, by creating it, you provide complete and accurate information about yourself.  By creating an account, you agree to receive certain communications in connection with the Site.

 

Content

You alone are responsible for Content which you contribute to the Site and, once published, it may not always be withdrawn from the Site. You assume all risks associated with Content you contribute, including the risk that someone may rely on its quality, accuracy, or reliability, or that you may disclose personally identifiable information. You also accept any potential liability arising out of Content that you contribute that violates any third party rights, or that violates any laws or regulations. You represent that you own, or have the necessary permissions to use and authorize the use of Content you contribute.

We may use Content that you submit in a variety of ways, such as displaying it publicly, reformatting it, incorporating it into advertisements and other works, creating derivative works from it, promoting it, distributing it, or allowing others to do the same. Therefore, you hereby irrevocably grant to us world-wide, perpetual, non-exclusive, royalty-free, assignable, sublicensable, transferable rights to use, for any purpose, the Content that you submit. Please note that you also irrevocably grant other users of the Site and any third parties the right to access Content submitted by you. You irrevocably waive any claims or assertions of moral rights against Trusted Few and its users. Herein, "use" means to use, copy, publicly perform or display, reproduce, distribute, modify, translate, commercialize, and prepare derivative works of Content submitted by you.

Trusted Few owns all Content on the Site. Trusted Few also owns the copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade names, and other intellectual property and proprietary rights associated with the Trusted Few Content and the Site. You may not use any of Trusted Few Content except as expressly authorized by us. Except as expressly and unambiguously provided in these Terms, we do not grant you any express or implied rights, and all rights in and to the Site and the Trusted Few Content are retained by us.

User Content (including any Content that may have been created by users employed or contracted by Trusted Few) does not necessarily reflect the opinion of Trusted Few. We reserve the right to screen, edit, remove, or reinstate User Content from time to time at our sole discretion for any reason or no reason, and without notice to you. We are not obligated to retain or provide you with copies of Content which you submit, nor do we guarantee any confidentiality with respect to such Content.
