TERMS OF USE & PRIVACY POLICY

Welcome SeeMe Members and Guests.

We at SeeMe are dedicated to the free expression of our users in a collaborative, positive, respectful environment. Our mission is to get creators as much recognition, exposure, and inspiration as we can. As part of that, we want to give their supporters new, meaningful, and fun ways to engage with creators and their images. In these terms, creators and other users give us the rights we need to do those things. We try to take as little as possible, but we do need to be sure that we’re protecting ourselves.

Below are the rules for using our site. Most of them are pretty obvious. Be a good person. Be respectful. Post only your own work. Post only material that belongs here. Stuff like that. We write them out because we want to make sure that they’re clear and that you remember them. If you use our site, you’re required to follow our rules. If you won’t follow our rules, don’t use our site.

If you have questions on any of this, always feel free to <a href="mailto:hello@see.me">contact us</a>.

Now, for the rules:

SeeMe  (“SeeMe”, “we”, or “us”) offers a wide variety of products and services, including several websites (such as www.see.me and all its sub-domains, together the “Site”), general and personalized content, communication tools and forums, a marketplace, online and downloadable applications, and competitions (all those together, the “Service”). These Terms of Use (the “Terms” or “Agreement”) are the rules for using the Service. By using or attempting to use the Service in any way you’re agreeing to be bound by and follow this Agreement.

We may update these terms without notice. Please check back here when you use the Service. Your continued use of the Service after any changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms.

Unless we say otherwise, these terms incorporate and supersede any other terms associated with the Service.

1. SeeMe is a community.  Almost all the material on our Site was created and posted by our members, so we can’t take responsibility for it.

The Service includes all kinds of material posted by our users. We assume no responsibility for the accuracy, authenticity, or source of any material on the Service. We do not verify or endorse any of it. We reserve the right to monitor and remove any material on or sent through the Service. We reserve the right to terminate your membership and use of the Service at any time, without notice, for any reason, at our sole discretion. If you are aware of a violation of our terms, you agree to notify us immediately, although we do not guarantee that we’ll take any action.

2. SeeMe never takes ownership of your material. Period.

As we mention above, you give us the rights we need to use the material you post so that we can run SeeMe. We try to take as little as possible, but we do need to be sure we’re protecting ourselves. That doesn’t change anything related to ownership. And, you can remove your material from the Service at any time.

3. SeeMe does need licenses and rights to be able to run the Service and get your material as much exposure and recognition as possible on our Site, on other sites, and in the physical world.

By submitting any material on the Service:

  • You grant to us and our partners and affiliates a nonexclusive, royalty free, perpetual, and worldwide license to use your material on the Service and for promotion of the Service and of your material, including incorporating into a collective work, copying, distributing, transmitting, displaying, performing, reproducing, editing, translating, and reformatting. Whenever possible, we will credit you as an author, and you agree that we can use your name for that purpose. We will stop posting your material on the Site going forward if you remove it from the Site.

  • You grant to us and our partners and affiliates a nonexclusive, royalty free, and worldwide license to allow users to buy prints of your material on any media that we offer. You may terminate this license going forward (but not for prints you’ve already sold through the Service) by checking the appropriate box in your settings or removing your material from the Site.

  • You grant to other users of the Site a license to use your material only for the limited purpose of using and accessing the Service.

  • You warrant that you have the right to use the trademarks, processes, and other materials you use with the Service. You warrant that your posted material does not infringe any third party copyrights, trademarks, or patents. You warrant your posted material is your own original work.

  • You represent that your material complies with these Terms.

 

 

To give SeeMe members more opportunities for promotion and recognition, we sometimes post members' work on other sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Tumblr. When images are posted to any of those sites, those images become subject to the privacy policies and terms of use of those sites, which are not under the control of SeeMe.

 

4. Copyright Notifications

SeeMe respects the intellectual property rights of others and we expect our members and guests to do the same. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, SeeMe has adopted a policy of, in appropriate circumstances, terminating member accounts that are repeat infringers of the intellectual property rights of others. We also may terminate member accounts even based on a single infringement.

We will remove material from our site if we are properly notified about alleged copyright infringement in accordance with the DMCA. If you misrepresent that material is infringing, you may be subject to liability under U.S. federal law.

If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please email our Copyright Agent at copyright@see.me. Your notification must contain the following information (please confirm these requirements with your legal counsel or see the U.S. Copyright Act for more information):

  • an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;

  • a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;

  • a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Site, sufficient for us to locate the material;

  • your address, telephone number, and email address;

  • a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and

  • a statement by you that the information in your notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf.

If you believe that your work has been removed by mistake or misidentification, please email us at copyright@see.me. Your counter-notice must contain the following information (please confirm these requirements with your legal counsel or see the U.S. Copyright Act for more information):

  • a physical or electronic signature of the user of the Services;

  • identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;

  • a statement made under penalty of perjury that the subscriber has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and

  • the subscriber's name, address, telephone number, and a statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the subscriber's address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, and that the user will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under subscriber (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.

If you misrepresent that material was removed by mistake or misidentification, you may be subject to liability under U.S. federal law.

If you fail to comply with these notice requirements, your notification or counter-notification may not be valid.
