Hello precious folk,
Some revolutionary updates were made to the Terms&Conditions of GrowDiaries.
Section 5.B was fully replaced. GrowDiaries has granted the ownership rights of the Content to its users. Moreover, GrowDiaries has waived the right to display, distribute, or perform copies of your Content that have been removed or deleted.
¨Using Your Content. You retain all of your ownership rights in your Content. However, by submitting Content to GrowDiaries, you hereby grant GrowDiaries a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the Content in connection with the Service and GrowDiaries' (and its successors' and affiliates') business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Service (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels. You also hereby grant each user of the Service a non-exclusive license to access your Content through the Service, and to use, reproduce, distribute, display and perform such Content as permitted through the functionality of the Service and under these Terms of Service. The above licenses granted by you in Content you submit to the Service terminate within a commercially reasonable time after you remove or delete your Content from the Service. You understand and agree, however, that GrowDiaries may retain, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of your Content that have been removed or deleted. The above licenses granted by you in user comments you submit are perpetual and irrevocable.¨
NEW Section 5.G was added. Even though we do our best to protect your data, it is important to understand that GrowDiaries cannot fully guarantee confidentiality. Please keep this in mind while working with such a sensitive subject as cannabis. We do remove EXIF data from images and IP's from server logs.
¨As a GrowDiaries account holder you understand that GrowDiaries does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any Content you submit.¨
NEW section 5.H was added. Look but don't touch. No Content can be downloaded unless there is a 'DOWNLOAD' button or a similar link displayed.
¨Content is provided to you AS IS. You may access Content for your information and personal use solely as intended through the provided functionality of the Service and as permitted under these TOS. You shall not download any Content unless you see a “download” or similar link displayed by GrowDiaries on the Service for that Content. You shall not copy, reproduce, distribute, transmit, broadcast, display, sell, license, or otherwise exploit any Content for any other purposes without the prior written consent of GrowDiaries or the respective licensors of the Content. GrowDiaries and its licensors reserve all rights not expressly granted in and to the Service and the Content.¨
