Member Submissions

  • Anything you post, upload, share, store, or otherwise provide through the Services is your “Member Submission.”
  • Kinscape backs up its system and software but does not explicitly provide backup for Member Submissions. Kinscape recommends that Members back up their Submissions locally to protect against unforeseen situations such as natural disasters (Kinscape provides a download facility for this purpose).
  • Some Member Submissions are viewable by other Members. In order to display your Member Submissions on the Services, and to allow other Members to enjoy them (where applicable), you grant us certain rights in those Member Submissions.
  • Please note that all of the following licenses are subject to our PRIVACY POLICY to the extent they relate to Member Submissions that are also your personally identifiable information:
    • For all Member Submissions, you hereby grant Kinscape a license to translate, modify (for technical purposes, for example, making sure your content is viewable on an iPhone as well as a computer) and reproduce and otherwise act with respect to such Member Submissions, in each case to enable us to operate the Services and/or produce any product you request, as described in more detail below. This is a license only – your ownership in Member Submissions is not affected.
    • If you store a Member Submission in your own personal Kinscape Account, in a manner that is not viewable by any other Member except you (a “Personal Member Submission”), you grant Kinscape the license above, as well as a license to display, perform, reproduce and distribute your Personal Member Submission for the sole purpose of making that Personal Member Submission accessible to you and providing the Services necessary to do so and/or produce any product containing such Personal Member Submission you request.
    • If you share a Member Submission only in a manner that only certain specified Members can view (for example, a private message to one or more other Members) (a “Limited Audience Member Submission”), then you grant Kinscape the licenses above, as well as a license to display, perform, reproduce and distribute your Limited Audience Member Submission for the sole purpose of making that Limited Audience Member Submission accessible to such other specified Members, and providing the Services necessary to do so and/or produce any product containing such Limited Audience Member Submission such other specified Members request. Also, you grant such other specified Members a license to access that Limited Audience Member Submission, and to use and exercise all rights in it, as permitted by the functionality of the Services and/or produce any product containing such Limited Audience Member Submission such other specified Members request.
  • You agree that the licenses you grant are royalty-free, perpetual, sublicensable, irrevocable, and worldwide; provided that when you delete your Kinscape Account, we will stop displaying your Member Submissions to other Members (if applicable), but you understand and agree that it may not be possible to completely delete your Submissions from Kinscape records, and that your Member Submissions may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent that they were copied or stored by other Members.
  • You understand and agree that Kinscape, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Services to our Members (including you), may need to make changes to your Member Submissions to conform and adapt those Member Submissions to the technical requirements of connection networks, devices, services, or media, and any of the foregoing licenses include the rights to do so.

Modification of Terms

Kinscape has the right to modify these Terms or any additional terms that apply to a Service at any time, including to reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services. We will notify you of any material changes by posting information through the Services, via email or other means; you agree that contact in any of these ways will satisfy legal notification requirements. Your continued use of the Services after a change to the Terms will mean you accept the changes.

Limit of Liability

We limit our liability to the fullest extent allowed by law. We will not be liable for any unintentional damage, any actual, incidental, or consequential damage, or for any loss or claim of any kind. Some jurisdictions do not allow us to have a broad limit on our liability. If you live in one of those jurisdictions, some of these limitations may not apply to you. If you are dissatisfied with any portion of the Services or with any statement in these Terms, your sole remedy is to stop using the Services and deactivate your Account.

Your Indemnity

You agree that you will indemnify and hold Kinscape, our staff, and our agents harmless from any claims, damages, or other expenses (including attorney’s fees) that result from your use of the Services and (a) your violation of these Terms or other documents incorporated herein by reference; (b) your violation of another person’s rights; or (c) any claim related to your Member Submissions, including a claim that your Member Submissions caused damage to another person. This indemnification obligation will continue after you stop using the Services. In addition, you release Kinscape from all claims, demands, actions, or suits in connection with your Member Submissions, including any liability related to our use or non-use of your Member Submissions, claims for defamation, invasion of privacy, right of publicity, emotional distress or economic loss.


Entire Agreement: These Terms, including all rules, guidelines, and other documents incorporated herein by reference, state the entire agreement between you and Kinscape regarding your use of the Services and supersede any prior agreements we may have relating to the Services.

There shall be no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement.

These Terms will continue to apply to the Services until you receive notification of changes to the Terms or Services.

Severability: Except as explicitly provided herein, the unenforceability of any section or clause in these Terms will not affect the enforceability of the remaining Terms. We may replace any unenforceable section or clause with a similar one that is enforceable.

No Waiver: Our failure to enforce any provision of these Terms is not a waiver of our rights under that provision.
