These Terms of Service and End User License Agreement (this “Agreement”) constitute a legal agreement between you and Ripl (“Ripl”, “we”, “our”, or “us”) stating the terms and conditions that govern your use of the mobile, desktop or web-based application provided herewith (the “Application”) and the web site at www.ripl.com (the “Site”). The Application and the Site are referred to together as the “Service.” Please read this Agreement carefully. By downloading, installing, and/or using the Application or accessing and/or using the Site, you agree to be bound by and comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You hereby represent and warrant that you are legally able to form a binding contract with Ripl. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, do not download, install and/or use the Application or access and/or use the Site. We may at our sole discretion change, add, modify, or delete portions of this Agreement from time to time. Please review this Agreement for changes prior to use of the Service. Your continued use of the Service following the posting of changes to this Agreement constitutes your acceptance of any changes. This is an agreement between you and Ripl, and not with Apple, Inc.(“Apple”), or Google, Inc. (“Google”), or others.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Ripl grants you a personal, limited, non- exclusive and non-transferable license to install and use the Application for purposes on any device that you own or control and as permitted by the Usage Rules set forth in Apple’s App Store Terms of Service (the “Usage Rules”) or Google's Play Store Terms of Service for mobile devices specifically. This license does not allow you to use the Application on any device that you do not own or control, and you may not distribute or make the Application available over a network where it could be used by multiple devices at the same time. This license does not entitle you to receive from us hard-copy documentation, support, telephone assistance, or enhancements or updates to the Application, and Apple and Google have no obligation to furnish any maintenance and support services regarding the Application. The terms of this license will govern any upgrades provided by us that replace or supplement the original Application unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate license in which case the terms of that license will govern. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Ripl grants you a personal, limited, non-exclusive, and non-transferable license to (i) access and use the Site, and (ii) use, publish, distribute, and display the pre-approved backgrounds, imagery, and music provided in the Service for the purposes of creating digital media content through the Service (“Licensed Materials”).
All rights not expressly granted in Section 1 above are exclusively reserved to Ripl. When using the Service, you may not:
You must use the Service in compliance with all applicable laws. You must comply with applicable third-party terms of agreement when using the Service (e.g., your wireless data service agreement). Your right to use the Service will terminate immediately if you violate any provision of this Agreement. Your rights to use the Service are specified in this Agreement and all rights not expressly granted herein are reserved to Ripl.
Except for User Submissions (defined below) all intellectual property rights in and to the content, tools, text, logos, marks, data, audio, video, design, codes, layout, “look and feel”, and other content that is included on the Service (“Content“) is owned by Ripl or the applicable brand owners. Except for the license granted herein with respect to the Licensed Materials, your use of any Content without prior written consent is strictly prohibited.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your user name and password (“Login Credentials”), if applicable. You are responsible for all uses of your account and Login Credentials, whether or not authorized by you. You agree to notify Ripl immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your account or Login Credentials or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. Please use caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your Login Credentials or other personal information. Ripl reserves the right to disable your Login Credentials at any time in its sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in Ripl’s opinion, you have violated any provision of this Agreement.
Subject to this Agreement and the functionality of the Service, you may comment on content, contribute to forums, and otherwise submit content (together, “User Submissions“) through the Service. Any User Submissions that you submit to Ripl in connection with a contest, sweepstakes, or other promotion (“Promotion“) will be subject to this Agreement unless the applicable terms, conditions, and/or official rules that govern the Promotion expressly state the contrary. You own all intellectual property rights in and to your User Submissions. By posting or uploading User Submissions through the Service, you grant Ripl a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, sub- licensable (through multiple tiers), and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, decompile, reverse engineer, data process, display, perform, and otherwise exercise all rights in and to the User Submissions in connection with Ripl’s business, including, without limitation, through the Service, for marketing and advertising purposes, and on Ripl merchandise in any media formats and through any media channels now known or hereinafter invented. Without limiting the foregoing, the license may also be exercised by third parties acting on Ripl’s behalf. You also grant each user of the Service a non-exclusive license to access your User Submissions through the Service.
You agree that, whether or not your User Submissions are published through the Service, Ripl offers no confidentiality or anonymity with respect to User Submissions. You warrant that you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorize Ripl to use your User Submissions as contemplated by the functionality of the Application and in this Agreement. You understand and agree that Ripl may display or distribute User Submissions along with your account name or other information you provide during any applicable registration process. When contributing User Submissions, you will not:
Ripl may remove or decline to post any User Submission at any time, for any reason (or for no reason), without notice and at its sole discretion, including, without limiting the foregoing, if it determines that a User Submission is inappropriate or fails to comply with this Agreement. Ripl has no responsibility for the back-up of any of any User Submission or any lost data resulting from the use, operation or discontinuation of any aspect of the Service.
Ripl, in its discretion, offers opportunities for its users to contribute User Submissions through the Service. You understand and agree that User Submissions are third- party content and are not created by Ripl. You understand that the Service aggregates User Submissions and other material in the Services, and that the User Submissions and other material does not necessarily represent the views of Ripl. In the case of Promotions, the bestowal of an award or prize by Ripl or its partner(s) does not signify Ripl’s endorsement of that User Submission. Through your use of the Service, you may be exposed to User Submissions or other material that you may find inaccurate, deceptive, offensive, objectionable, or harmful. All User Submissions and other material are provided for your convenience only, and you assume all associated risks.
You may be able to link from the Service to third-party websites that take you outside of the Service (“Linked Sites”). Ripl has no responsibility for the information, content, products, services, advertising, code or other material, which may be provided through the Linked Sites. Your interactions with Linked Sites are subject to the terms of service and other policies of those sites, so please use common sense as you navigate the Web and be aware when you leave the Service.
Ripl shall have the right for any reason, in its sole discretion, to terminate, change, suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any aspect of the Service, including but not limited to content or features, without notice to you. We may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Service with or without notice or liability. From time to time, Ripl may make available updates or upgrades to the Application via software download or other means. Such download may occur automatically without the need for an act on your part, or it may require you to manually download an update or upgrade through the same source from which the Application was originally downloaded. Certain functions of the Application may be modified or discontinued as a result of any such update or upgrade, or may not be available if you have not downloaded all updates and upgrades made available by Ripl or otherwise.

You should periodically check whether an updated or upgraded version of the Application is available for download.
You agree that Ripl may terminate your use of this Service, and/or exercise any other remedy available to it, if Ripl reasonably believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Agreement, or violated the rights of Ripl or any third party, or for any reason with or without notice to you.
