You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information, and for any acts, omissions or activities that arise out of the use of your account information. You acknowledge and agree that we and the Affiliated Parties shall not be liable for any loss, injury, claim, or damage of any kind resulting in any way from any use by you or any other party of your account information, including your username or password.

In the event you become aware of or believe there was or is any unauthorized use of your account including your username or password, you must notify us immediately.

We reserve the right to terminate or suspend your account or ability to use or access any section of our Web Site for failure to comply with these terms of use, the privacy policy, any other legal notices on our Web Site, or your Franchise Agreement, for infringing any copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property, or for any other reason whatsoever.

OWNER'S FORUM POSTS.

The Owner's Forum will allow you and other Franchisees to post, upload, and display information (each posting of such information shall be referred to as a "Post"). You are solely responsible for all of your Posts.

In the event that you make a Post, or a Post is otherwise made through any account of yours on the Owner’s Forum or elsewhere on our Web Site, you will be deemed to represent and agree to the following:

  1. Other than your name, the Post does not contain any personal information to identify you, your account or any other person, and, if it does, you accept all consequences of the dissemination of such personal information;
  2. The Post complies with these terms of use and other requirements stated on our Web Site;
  3. The Post does not contain any other information or content that we consider in our sole discretion to be inappropriate for our Web Site, or that we consider would reflect negatively on the Oxi Fresh franchise system;
  4. The Post does not contain any personal attacks on any person or entity, including us or any other Franchisee;
  5. The factual information in the Post, if any, is accurate and not misleading;
  6. The Post relates solely to your business authorized under your Franchise Agreement, and does not relate to any other business or commercial purpose;
  7. The Post does not contain any information, graphics, or other content that:
    (1) contains a virus or other harmful component or otherwise interferes with, impairs or damages our Web Site and any individual’s or entity’s use or enjoyment of our Web Site;
    (2) is abusive, offensive, hateful, racist, disruptive, antisocial, defamatory, threatening, violent, vulgar, sexually explicit, pornographic, slanderous or otherwise harmful, including, without limitation, speech that attacks, insults, or demeans a group of persons based on their race, sexual orientation, gender, age, disability, ethnicity, or veteran status;
    (3) contains unlawful information; and
    (4) does not generally relate or is inconsistent with any discussion, topic or theme of any of the Owner’s Forum or any other section of our Web Site;

In particular, you may not make any Post or otherwise upload or transmit information to our Web Site that includes, displays, or reproduces in any way, trademarks, service marks, copyrighted materials, or other proprietary or trade secret information of any third party without first obtaining written consent of the owner of such intellectual property, trade secret, or other proprietary information;
  9. The Post does not infringe any legal, proprietary, intellectual property, privacy right, contractual right, or other rights of any person or entity;
  10. We possess the right to change, use, delete, exploit and distribute the Post in any manner and at our sole discretion;

  15. You may not make any Post or otherwise upload or transmit information to our Web Site including large amounts of repetitive or untargeted content.

 

The open and real-time nature of the Owner's Forum and Post process makes it impossible for us to vouch for the validity and accuracy of Posts from individual Franchisees. We do not monitor, endorse, edit or screen all Posts, although we have the right to do so in our discretion. Posts do not necessarily reflect our views or opinions. You acknowledge, understand and agree that we shall neither assume nor have any responsibility or liability for any Posts or for any claims, damages, injury or losses resulting from the Posts, or their use or appearance on the Owner's Forum.

At our sole discretion, we reserve the right at any time and without limitation to (a) review, edit, or delete and remove any Posts made by you or any other Franchisee, (b) refuse to allow you or any other Franchisee to make a Post, (c) revoke your right or any other Franchisee’s right to make a Post or to use the Franchisee-only section of our Web Site, and (d) use any means or mechanisms necessary to enforce these terms of use, or any other legal notices on our Web Site.

If you believe or have reason to believe that any Post violates these terms of use or any legal notices on our Web Site, please notify us immediately.

You may not collect personal information about others on the Owner's Forum or without our consent and their consent. Your use of our Web Site and the Owner’s Forum shall in all respects be in compliance with your Franchise Agreement and any other agreements you have entered with us, and with our Procedures Manuals and other specifications and standards.

VIOLATIONS OF TERMS OF USE.

These terms of use, and your use of our Web Site, will be deemed to create an agreement between us and you. A default by you under this agreement will be deemed a default under your Franchise Agreement. If we elect to terminate this agreement as a result of your default, we may, at our discretion, elect to terminate your Franchise Agreement.

VOLUNTARILY DISCLOSED PERSONAL INFORMATION.

Any personal information you submit to the Owner's Forum in a Post can be read, collected, or used by other Franchisees, and could be used for any purpose, including to send you unsolicited communication. We do not ask you to disclose personal information through the Owner’s Forum other than your name, but please be advised that your name and any other personal information you choose to provide may be used by us and other Franchisees using the Inner Circle section of our Web Site for any purpose.

We are not responsible for any personal information you choose to submit in a Post. We make no guarantees as to the security of any personal information so provided. We disclaim and you agree to release us from any liability resulting from your disclosure of personal information submitted in a Post.

Any Posts or other information submitted through our Web Site may be maintained indefinitely.

COLLECTION OF INFORMATION BY FRANCHISEES.

As an existing Franchisee, you may receive personal information from potential customers interested in obtaining carpet cleaning or other services provided by an Oxi Fresh business, and other members of the general public, through our Scheduling Center which may collect the information from our Web Site.
