Paint Tracker Terms of Service

Last modified: July 2, 2013

Welcome to Paint Tracker!

Thank you for using Paint Tracker ("Service"). This Service is provided by the Iowa Waste Reduction Center ("IWRC"), a program of the University of Northern Iowa.

The following terms and conditions (collectively, "Terms of Service") apply to your use of Paint Tracker including any content, functionality and services offered on or via painttracker.iwrc.org ("Website").

By using Paint Tracker, the customer agrees to be bound by the Terms of Service stated herein. Please read them carefully.

About These Terms

IWRC reserves the right to update the Service and these Terms of Service at IWRC's discretion and without notice. This document is public and you will be able to track the changes for any new version. Your continued use of the Service following the publishing of updated Terms of Service means you accept and agree to the changes. If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of the Service.

These terms control the relationship between IWRC and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights.

If it turns out a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.

Using Paint Tracker

To access the Website, you have to register by entering your email and choosing a password as part of the security procedures. You must treat such information as confidential, not disclosing it to any third party. There is a password reset procedure. In case you forget your password or are aware of any breach of security, please notify the IWRC. We highly recommend choosing a strong password, which must be at least seven (7) characters long (e.g., bluebunny@345), and that you log out from your account at the end of every session. We reserve the right to disable any user account, at any time in IWRC's sole discretion, for any or no reason, including in IWRC's opinion that you have failed to comply with any provision of these Terms of Service. We reserve the right to delete accounts which have been inactive for 18 months.

Business Uses of Service

If you are using the Service on behalf of a business, that business accepts these terms. It will hold harmless and indemnify the University of Northern Iowa (UNI), State of Iowa (State), IWRC and their affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from any claim, suit or action arising from or related to the use of the Service or violation of these terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys' fees.

Your Content in Paint Tracker

When you submit content to the Service, you give IWRC the right and a license to use, host and store such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, improving the Service, and developing new services. This license continues even if you stop using the Service. Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content you submit to the Service.

Privacy and Copyright Protection

We use SSL encryption for all logged-in users, but we cannot guarantee all use will be secure. We do not guarantee the Service or any content provided within the Service is error free. In connection with your use of the Service, we may send service announcements, administrative messages and other information.

Using the Service does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in the Service or the content you access. You may not use content from the Service unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant right to use any branding or logos used in the Service. Do not remove, obscure or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with the Service.

Modifying and Terminating Service

From time to time we may change and improve the Service; and as a result we cannot guarantee the Service will be available at all times. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Service is unavailable at any time or for any period, nor for any data loss.

You can stop using the Service at any time, although we will be sorry to see you go. IWRC may also stop providing the Service to you, or add or create new limits to the Service at any time.

We believe you own your data and preserving your access to such data is important. If we discontinue the Service, where reasonably possible, we will give you reasonable advance notice and a chance to get your information out of the Service.

Liability for Service

WHEN PERMITTED BY LAW, UNI, the State, and IWRC WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, FINANCIAL LOSSES OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES.

IN ALL CASES, UNI, the State, and IWRC WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT IS NOT REASONABLY FORESEEABLE.

Warranties and Disclaimers

We provide the Service using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care and we hope you will enjoy using it. But there are certain things we do not promise about the Service.

OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS OR ADDITIONAL WRITTEN TERMS, UNI, THE STATE, AND IWRC DO NOT MAKE ANY SPECIFIC PROMISES ABOUT THE SERVICE. FOR EXAMPLE, WE DO NOT MAKE ANY COMMITMENTS ABOUT THE CONTENT WITHIN THE SERVICE, THE SPECIFIC FUNCTION OF THE SERVICE, OR THE RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR NEEDS. WE PROVIDE THE SERVICE "AS IS".

SOME JURISDICTIONS PROVIDE FOR CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIKE THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXCLUDE AND DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES.
