Welcome to LiveHive! We want to ensure that you are aware of certain terms and conditions regarding the use of the LiveHive Service. Your use of the LiveHive Service is contingent upon your agreement and adherence to these terms and conditions, which are contained in this Terms of Service Agreement (TOS). Please review carefully as your continued use of this Service is subject to your agreement and continued adherence to the following terms. There is no requirement that you accept our TOS, however, if you do not accept our TOS you will not have any right to the Service.
If you do access our web site and use our Service, your use shall be deemed to accept the TOS and be a party to a legally binding contract with LiveHive Incorporated (“LiveHive,” “we,” and sometimes “us”). Of course, you may also be required or elect to enter into a separate written agreement or click “accept” or “agree” to become a party to another contract with LiveHive (a “Separate Agreement”), and these TOS shall not be considered to supersede the specific contractual terms of the Separate Agreement. If there is any contradiction between the terms of the Separate Agreement and the TOS, then the terms of the Separate Agreement shall take precedence over the contradictory terms in the TOS with respect to the subject matter of such Separate Agreement.
You should be aware that the TOS may be periodically updated, so be sure to regularly check these TOS for any updates or other changes, which shall be legally binding upon you when we post them, whether or not we provide you any other notice of such changes. The then-applicable TOS will be posted at www.livehiveapp.com and we will indicate the effective date of each update at the top of the TOS. Your continued use of the Service after any update will be deemed to represent your consent to be bound by, and agreement with, the updated TOS.
The LiveHive Service consists of products, computer programs, widgets or gadgets, integrations with other programs or services, services and web sites hosted or made available by LiveHive, which you may use for capturing, organizing, searching, storing, synchronizing, recognizing, sharing and transmitting any number of digital items or clippings on multiple computers and network platforms, now known or hereafter developed (collectively, the “Service”).
Subject to the terms and conditions herein, LiveHive grants you a limited, non-exclusive license to utilize the Service so long as you warrant by your acceptance of the TOS that (i) you are of legal age to form a binding contract and (ii) you are not barred from receiving the Service under the laws of the United States or in your local jurisdiction. In order to access and/or use the Service, you may be required to provide current, accurate, identification, contact and other information as part of the registration process and/or continued use of the Service, and you will be responsible for maintaining the accuracy and completeness of such information. You may also be provided with an account, username, password and/or an email address (the “Account Information”) to access or use the Service, or to enable another to access, use and modify your data. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account Information and, accordingly, will be fully responsible for all activities that occur under your account, including activities of others to whom you have provided your Account Information. You agree to immediately notify LiveHive of any unauthorized use of your Account Information, account or any other breach of security. We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to provide us with accurate information or to keep your Account Information secure. You are solely responsible for obtaining the equipment and telecommunication services necessary to access the Service, and all fees associated therewith (such as computing devices and Internet service provider and airtime charges).
You acknowledge and agree that all information, data, text, images, software, sounds, graphics, video, messages, tags and other materials, in whatever form and technical structure, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted or stored using the Service (“Content”), are the sole responsibility of the person(s) originating such Content and introducing such Content into the Service. We reserve the right, but shall have no obligation, to pre-screen, reject, review, quarantine, delete or move any Content available with the Service, without obligation to any person. You agree that you are responsible for your own conduct and all conduct under your account, and all Content that is created, transmitted, stored or displayed by anyone using your Account Information with the Service and for any consequences arising as a result thereof. You agree to use the Service only for purposes that are legal, proper and in accordance with these TOS and any Separate Agreements, and all applicable laws and regulations in the relevant legal jurisdictions (including, without limitation, laws and regulations relating to the recording of audio, copyright laws, privacy laws and the storage and transmission of data and technology). Without limiting the foregoing, you shall be deemed to represent and warrant to LiveHive that you have the unfettered legal rights and authority to permit you to submit your Content to LiveHive in connection with your use of the Service, and such submission and the grant to LiveHive of the rights you grant herein in connection with LiveHive’ offering and operation of the Service does not infringe the rights of any person or third party.
Please ensure that you are mindful of the legal rights of others in copyrightable works, trademarks and service marks and their individual privacy, and do not reproduce or upload or publish Content that will violate their rights or subject you to legal liability. LiveHive cannot and will not provide you legal or other advice on these issues, but will act in accordance with applicable law and in the best interests of LiveHive and, in its discretion, the interests of those who use the Service. There are many legal reference sites available to you on the Internet and otherwise, and we encourage you to obtain advice from a lawyer familiar with such issues if you are unsure of your rights to upload, distribute or publish any Content. By submitting to LiveHive any ideas, suggestions, documents and/or proposals through the “Contact Us” or “Feedback” interface or otherwise (collectively, “Contributions”), you acknowledge and agree that:
LiveHive Rights You acknowledge and agree that LiveHive (and any licensors to LiveHive) own(s) all legal right, title and interest in and to the Service, including, without limitation, all software comprising a part of the Service and all intellectual property rights therein (whether registered or not and wherever existing in the world). You further acknowledge and agree that the rights in the Service, including all intellectual property rights, are protected by one or more of copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret and other laws, regulations and treaties, in addition to these TOS and any Separate Agreement. Except for the limited license rights specifically granted to you in these TOS (and any rights expressly granted to you in a Separate Agreement), LiveHive and its suppliers own and shall retain all rights, title and interests, including, without limitation, intellectual property rights, in and to the Service and all Software utilized therein (and all copies thereof and related materials that are delivered or made available to you with the Service). In order to enable LiveHive to operate the Service, we must obtain from you certain license and other rights to the Content you submit (so that our processing, maintenance, storage, technical reproduction, back-up and distribution, and related handling of your Content doesn’t infringe applicable copyright and other laws). Accordingly, by using the Service and posting Content, you grant LiveHive a license to display, perform and distribute your Content, and to modify (for technical purposes) and reproduce such Content to enable LiveHive to operate the Service. (You also agree that LiveHive has the right to elect not to accept, post, store, display, publish or transmit any Content in our sole discretion.) You agree that these rights and licenses are royalty free, irrevocable and worldwide, and include a right for LiveHive to make such Content available to, and pass these rights along to, others with whom LiveHive has contractual relationships related to the provision of the LiveHive Service, solely for the purpose of providing such services, and to otherwise permit access to your Content to third parties if LiveHive determines such access is necessary to comply with its legal obligations. Except for the limited license and other rights granted in these TOS, you retain all of the rights you had in your Content before you submitted it; unless you elect to enable others to view or have access to the Content you submit to the Service, no one else should see your Content without your consent. Of course, if you do elect to publish and share any portion of your Content by using LiveHive’ Sharing fucntionality, then, in doing so, you are enabling each of those permitted users of the LiveHive Service access to use, display, perform, distribute and modify your Content (subject to any understandings or agreements you and such users may have without LiveHive’ involvement).
Your Rights As indicated above, you retain copyright and any other rights you already hold in Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Service. Other than the limited license and other rights you grant in these TOS, LiveHive acknowledges and agrees that it obtains no right, title or interest from you (or your licensors) under these TOS in or to any Content that you submit, post, store, transmit or display on, or through, the Service, including any intellectual property rights which subsist in that Content (whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist). You agree that you are solely responsible for protecting and enforcing those rights and that LiveHive has no obligation to do so on your behalf.
LiveHive hereby grants you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the Software provided to you by LiveHive as part of the Service as provided to you by LiveHive, for the sole purpose of enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Service as permitted by these TOS, until your rights are terminated in accordance with these TOS.
It is our policy to respond to clear and complete notices of alleged copyright infringement that are compliant with the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA, www.copyright.gov), and otherwise be responsive to applicable copyright laws.

Please note that we may reproduce any legal notice we receive to send to a third-party for publication and annotation, and we may post your notice in place of any removed Content.

LiveHive may from time to time include as part of the Service computer software supplied by third parties, which is utilized by permission of the respective licensors and/or copyright holders on the terms provided by such parties. LiveHive expressly disclaims any warranty or other assurance to you regarding such third party software.
