(“Firstread,” “we”, “us”, or “our”) services, including the first-read.com site (the “Site”), and the services we may offer through the Site from time to time (the “Services”). If you do not agree to these terms please do not use the Services.
  2. License: As long as you abide by these Terms, we grant you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to use the Services (“License”).
  3. Use Restrictions:
    1. You agree not to, and not to permit others to, (i) upload content that infringes third party rights, violate applicable laws or regulations, or that is defamatory, offensive, harmful or threatening to any person; (ii) interfere or disrupt the Services, including among others through the use of malicious code; (iii) sublicense, reverse engineer, decompile, decode, copy, reproduce, modify, or alter the Services; or (iv) otherwise use the Services in any way that contradicts these Terms. If you are under 16, you may not use the Services, and by using the Services, you represent that you are over 16.
    2. Any violation by you of the License provisions and use restrictions shall revoke your License to use the Services and may result in the immediate termination of your License and right to use the Site, without derogating from any other relief available to us under law or equity.
  4. Ownership: Firstread and its licensors exclusively own all right, title and interest in and to any and all intellectual property rights relating to the Services including, but not limited to any copyrights, trademarks, patents, features, modifications or derivatives thereof. You agree and acknowledge that our right to the Services is protected by international copyright and trademark laws. These Terms do not give you any rights, title, or interest in or to the Services. All rights not explicitly granted herein are reserved by Firstread.
  5. Documents and Feedback: The Site or Services may enable you to submit, upload, or otherwise make available content such as feedback, comments, and other user generated content (collectively, "Feedback"). You shall be solely liable for the Feedback and represent that the Feedback does not infringe or otherwise violate third-party’s intellectual property rights. If you post any Feedback to the Site or as part of the Services, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, irrevocable, royalty free right to use, reproduce, modify, distribute, and display such Feedback in any form or media.
    The Feedback does not include any document uploaded onto the Site for processing (“Documents”). Except for the purpose of offering you the Services, we do not have any rights over your Documents.
  6. Payments: Any paid subscription to the Services will be billed on a recurring basis on either a monthly or yearly billing cycle, which shall be automatically renewed and charged upon the commencement of each subscription term, unless the subscription is earlier canceled by either party. Firstread may, from time to time, at its sole discretion, modify the subscription fees effective from the billing cycle following notice of such change. All amounts payable hereunder are non-refundable and exclusive of taxes, levies or duties. You are responsible for paying all applicable taxes. Failure to pay any due fees will entitle Firstread to cancel or suspend your subscription.
  7. NO WARRANTIES: THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. YOU ARE ADVISED TO SAFEGUARD YOUR DATA, TO USE CAUTION AND NOT TO RELY IN ANY WAY ON THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SERVICES.
  8. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: IN NO EVENT SHALL FIRSTREAD, NOR ITS DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS, OR AFFILIATES, BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. OUR LIABILITY TO YOU SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ACTUAL AMOUNT OF FEES PAID BY YOU TO FIRSTREAD DURING THE THREE (3) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE DATE GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OR SHOULD HAVE BEEN AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
  9. Termination: We may terminate or suspend the Services or your access to any of the Services immediately, without prior notice or liability and for any reason. You may discontinue using the Services and request to cancel your subscription at any time, effective from the end of the then current monthly or annual subscription period, by contacting our support at contact@first-read.com. In the event you cancel your subscription, you will still have access to the Services through the end of the then current billing cycle. Cancelation does not qualify you for a partial or pro-rata refund.

If you continue to use the Services after receiving such notice, you represent your acceptance of the modified Terms.
    3. A failure by a party hereunder to enforce a right under these Terms will not be deemed as a waiver of that right.
