If you create a Clouden Account, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the account. You must immediately notify Clouden of any unauthorized uses of your account, or any other breaches of security. Clouden will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.
Responsibility of Publishers
If you post material to a Clouden Service, post links on Clouden Services or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available (any such material, “Content”), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content or your conduct. That is the case regardless of what form the Content takes, which includes, but is not limited to text, photo, video, audio, or code. By using Clouden Services, you represent and warrant that your Content and conduct do not violate these terms or the User Guidelines. By submitting Content to Clouden, you grant Clouden a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing, and promoting your Content. This license allows Clouden to make publicly-posted content available to third parties selected by Clouden so that these third parties can analyze and distribute (but not publicly display) your content through their services. If you delete Content, Clouden will use reasonable efforts to remove it from Clouden services, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, Clouden has the right (though not the obligation) to, in Clouden’s sole discretion, (i) reclaim your username or website’s URL due to prolonged inactivity, (ii) refuse or remove any content that, in Clouden’s reasonable opinion, violates any Clouden policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (iii) terminate or deny access to and use of Clouden Services to any individual or entity for any reason. Clouden will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.
Payment and Renewal
General Terms. Paid services such as channel subscriptions are available (any such service, a “Paid Service”). By selecting a Paid Service you agree to pay Clouden the recurring subscription fees indicated for that service. Payments will be charged on a pre-pay basis at the time you sign up for an Service and will cover the use of that service for a subscription period as indicated.
Automatic Renewal. Unless you notify Clouden before the end of the applicable subscription period that you want to cancel a Paid Service, your Paid Service subscription will automatically renew and you authorize us to collect the then-applicable subscription fee for such Paid Service (as well as any taxes) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you. Paid Services can be canceled at any time in the Account section of our website.
Credits. Purchased credits are refunded only in exceptional circumstances at Clouden’s sole discretion. Prices of services paid using credits may be changed at Clouden’s sole discretion.
