Terms of Service
This Site provides two separate products: (1) IP Cloud storage for intellectual property in the IP Vault; and (2) the ID your IP questionnaire to assess intellectual property and access to the IP Cloud Member resource and management area.
Traklight shall have the right at any time to change or discontinue any aspect or feature of the Site, including, but not limited to, content, hours of availability, and equipment needed for accessing or using the Site. Further, Traklight may discontinue disseminating any portion of information or category of information, may change or eliminate any transmission method and may change transmission speeds or other signal characteristics.
You represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract. You must be at least 18 years old to be eligible to use the Site. However, if you are at least 13 years old but not yet 18, you may use the Site in conjunction with your parent or guardian who agrees to this Agreement. No one under age 13 may use the Site.
Traklight Reports: where you provide information or make choices, even if based upon suggestions or tips provided by Traklight, and resulting in a report where that information or the outcome of your choices, does not and is not intended to represent the advice of Traklight, or the practice of law. These completed or generated reports are no more than self-help reports where you would fill in the information or make the choices as if they were forms with blanks to be completed, even if a programmer has programmed a decision tree. Traklight is not applying the principles of the laws of your state, including those based upon the information you provide or the choices you make. Traklight does nothing more than allow you to pick and choose among various choices or provisions. It is your responsibility to get the completion of the report right.
THIS SITE SHOULD BE USED FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. TRAKLIGHT DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY LEGAL ADVICE. THE PURCHASE OF ANY SERVICES THROUGH TRAKLIGHT DOES NOT IN ANY WAY CONSTITUTE, FORM, OR CREATE AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP WITH TRAKLIGHT, ANY OF ITS OWNERS, OR AFFILIATES. NOTHING ON THIS SITE OR ANY COMMUNICATIONS FROM TRAKLIGHT, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, SHOULD EVER BE CONSTRUED IN ANY WAY AS LEGAL ADVICE. IF USER NEEDS LEGAL ADVICE, USER SHOULD SEEK SUCH LEGAL ADVICE FROM A LICENSED ATTORNEY.
2. Modified Terms
User shall be responsible for obtaining and maintaining all telephone, computer hardware, and other equipment needed for access to and use of this Site and all charges related thereto.
User acknowledges that, although the Internet is often a secure environment, sometimes there are interruptions in service or events that are beyond the control of Traklight, and Traklight shall not be responsible for any data lost or stolen while transmitting information on the Internet. While it is Traklight's objective to make the Site accessible 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, the Site may be unavailable from time to time for any reason including, without limitation, routine maintenance. You understand and acknowledge that due to circumstances both within and outside of the control of Traklight, access to the Site may be interrupted, suspended, or terminated from time to time.
4. Non-disclosure Agreement
The purpose of the IP Vault is to time stamp all files that are uploaded to it as a way to provide evidence regarding when the author created the document or reduced the concept to a written document. Traklight's business practice does not include reviewing each file when it is uploaded, only time stamping and storing it. Using the IP Vault or ID your IP does not constitute a public disclosure. Traklight agrees not to disclose the content of any file that a User uploads to the IP Vault or that a User inputs into ID your IP, unless it is required to disclose such information by a court order.
User agrees not to reverse engineer the underlying code for the IP Vault or ID your IP. Additionally, User shall not download, copy, or take screenshots of any questions used in ID your IP.
5. User Conduct
User shall provide an accurate email address and website address (if applicable) when posting comments on the Traklight blog. User may use a pseudonym when posting comments, but shall not make misrepresentions or acts of fraud.
6. Purchasing Terms
When making a purchase, User must provide accurate personal and credit card information. User agrees to pay all charges related to using the IP Vault and/or ID your IP. If the fee for using the IP Vault changes, Users will be given notice via email at least 10 days in advance. Continuing to use the IP Vault communicates acceptance of the increased fee.
User may pay to store files in the IP Vault on a quarterly, six-month, annual, or multi-year basis. Traklight will automatically send a renewal email every time that payment is due. If a User ceases to pay the storage fee, Traklight will store the User's files for six months in their account. During that time, if User wishes to obtain a Vault Confirmation, they must pay any past-due storage fees and an additional document fee. After one year of non-payment, Traklight will archive User's files and charge a retrieval fee in addition to past-due storage fees and a document fee.
7. Using the IP Vault and ID your IP
By uploading a file to the IP Vault, the User agrees that they have created or otherwise own the contents of the file. If the User uploads a file that they do not own or is illegal, the User may be liable for civil or criminal damages.
User agrees that the content of their file does not infringe on anyones intellectual property rights. Neither uploading a file to the IP Vault nor using ID your IP creates any additional intellectual property rights for User. User retains ownership of anything they upload to the IP Vault or disclose during the use of ID your IP, and any related intellectual property rights.
The IP Vault stores sensitive data produced and furnished by Traklight's Users. User is responsible for protecting every piece of sensitive data within their control and power.
Traklight takes reasonable efforts to protect all User data online and offline. This includes all data that is transmitted across the Internet and the data stored on Traklight's servers.
All data transmitted across the Internet between User and this Site will be 256-bit encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. User will know this technology is in use by the presence of the "golden lock" on User's Internet browser.
All data stored on Traklight's servers are secured by the industry standard database security architecture and best practices, including restricted database accessibility and visibility to the Internet. Authorized Traklight personnel will be permitted specific and limited access to perform operative and maintenance tasks that may include access to sensitive customer information.
Traklight takes every reasonable effort to protect Users' personal information. However, this statement shall not be construed as a guarantee or warranty of data protection. In the event of security breach, Traklight will notify Users via email of the event and what information may have been accessed. User agrees not to hold Traklight liable for any damage that may result.
