Welcome to https://headtalker.com/ (the “Website”), operated by HeadFunder, Inc. (“HeadTalker,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). BY REGISTERING FOR, VISITING OR USING ANY PART OF THE WEBSITE, THE HEADTALKER WEBSITE DESIGNED TO BE USED ON YOUR COMPUTER AND/OR MOBILE DEVICE, OR ANY OF OUR HEADTALKER SERVICES, FEATURES, OR CONTENT (COLLECTIVELY, THE “SERVICES”) IN ANY MANNER YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS OF THESE TERMS OF USE (THESE “TERMS OF USE”) AND ALL OTHER OPERATING RULES, POLICIES AND PROCEDURES THAT MAY BE PUBLISHED BY US FROM TIME TO TIME ON THE SERVICES, EACH OF WHICH IS INCORPORATED HEREIN BY THIS REFERENCE.

We reserve the right to modify or replace these Terms of Use and/or to change, suspend or discontinue the Services at any time in our sole discretion. We may also impose limits on certain features and Services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability. We may provide notice of changes to these Terms of Use or other matters by posting updated text on this Website or through the Services or other appropriate means of electronic communication, and your continued use of the Services following the posting of any change or modification to these Terms of Use will constitute your acceptance of the modified Terms of Use, and your use will be subject to the Terms of Use in effect at the time of your use. It is your responsibility to review these Terms of Use periodically for changes.

The Services let people be seen on social media by more people by posting a single message together at the same time. This is a Service where certain users can create a single message and invite others to support that specific message (“join” or “support” that HeadTalker). The way you support a message is to grant the Service access to your Facebook®, Twitter®, LinkedIn® or Tumblr® account to post that message on your behalf as a status update in your timeline or as a Tweet, as applicable. We do this through a standard API request through such service. Once a given message has received a certain number of supporters specified by the creator of the message, the Services then post (if you supported via Facebook, LinkedIn or Tumblr) and/or Tweet (if you supported via Twitter) that message on behalf of every user who supported the message — we do this once and roughly all at the same time.

When you join a HeadTalker campaign, your username and profile picture from the third party service you joined through may appear on this Website (or otherwise through the Services) indicating that you are a supporter of that message. Also, after you join a HeadTalker campaign, you have the option of sharing that you support that message via Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn and/or Facebook. You do this by granting the Services access to your Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn and/or Facebook accounts through standard Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn and/or Facebook APIs.

You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor we will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person’s account, if we are a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state law concerning arbitration. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either we or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms. If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this paragraph will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with us.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT WE AND OUR DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, RELATED ENTITIES, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, CONTRACTORS, PRINCIPALS, AND LICENSORS SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY OF ANY KIND UNDER ANY NEGLIGENCE, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, FOR: (I) ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING FROM THESE TERMS OF USE OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES AND/OR THE APPLICATION OR FOR ANY OTHER CLAIM RELATED IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES AND/OR THE LICENSED APPLICATION, OR THE PERFORMANCE OR NON-PERFORMANCE OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN ANY CONTENT, OR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRED AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF ANY CONTENT POSTED, TRANSMITTED, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE VIA THE SERVICES, (II) LIABILITY THAT EXCEEDS IN THE AGGREGATE THE GREATER OF THE FEES PAID TO US BY YOU FOR THE SERVICES DURING THE IMMEDIATELY PRIOR THREE MONTHS OR $100, (III) DATA LOSS OR LOSS OF BUSINESS, GOODWILL, OR PROFITS, (IV) COSTS OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, SERVICES, TECHNOLOGY OR RIGHTS, OR (V) ANY MATTERS BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL; IN EACH CASE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THEIR POSSIBILITY. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, SO THE LIMITATIONS ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

MISCELLANEOUS

These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and us and govern your use of the Services, superseding any prior agreements between you and us. A printed version of the Terms of Use and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms of Use to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.

You may not assign, delegate or transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms of Use and any such prohibited assignment transfer shall be null and void. We may freely assign, delegate and transfer the Terms of Use and any of our rights and obligations. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate services, third-party content, or third-party software. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in these Terms of Use, these Terms of Use and the relationship between you and us shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions or the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Use is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Use remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Services, the Licensed Application, or these Terms of Use will be forever barred if not filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose. All provisions of these Terms of Use which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, licenses of user Content, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity provisions, limitations of liability, and the dispute resolution provisions.

Recognizing the global nature of the Internet, you agree to comply with all local rules regarding online conduct. Specifically, you agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States and/or the country in which you reside. You are solely responsible for ensuring that these Terms of Use are in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to you and the right to access the Services is revoked where these Terms of Use or use of the Services is prohibited or to the extent offering. 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 MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
