Our Terms of Service
Effective Date: April 1, 2023.
Each time you access our website, or any online service we provide, you agree to be bound by our Terms of Service, which form a legal contract between you and Pluribus News.
We value and respect each member of our audience, and we expect the same in return. If you do not agree to these Terms, you do not have our consent to access or use any of our online services.
We reserve the right to update these Terms—or modify our services—from time to time. You can always find the latest version by clicking on the “Terms of Service” link at the bottom of our home page. When you continue to use our services after changes have been posted, you indicate your assent to the latest version of these Terms.
Limits on Use
Our services are offered for your personal, noncommercial use only. If you wish to download or copy any materials made available through our services (aka our “content”), you may do so only for your personal use, and only so long as you keep all copyright and other intellectual property markings together with the content to which they apply.
You shall not modify, publish, reproduce, distribute, create new works from, perform, display, or in any way exploit—in whole or in part—any of our content.
Intellectual Property Rights
Our content is protected by copyright, both as a collective work or compilation and as individual articles, photographs, graphics, clips, and other protectable forms. These copyrights are owned by Pluribus News or by our third-party licensors. You may not use our content without our express permission. To request written consent to use a copyrighted work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We do our best to respect the copyrights of others. If you believe that we have reproduced your copyrighted work without authorization, please send a detailed explanation, with supporting information attached or hyperlinked, to email@example.com
Regardless of whether they are accompanied by TM or ® or otherwise designated as such, our company name, trade names, trade dress, logos, service marks, slogans, and other protectable designs and identifying marks (together, our “Marks”) are our exclusive property. You may not use our Marks without express, written permission. Similarly, you shall not imitate, dilute, or reference our Marks in any confusing misleading manner.
Third-Party Content and Links to Third-Party Websites
Our services include advertisements and other third-party owned content and links to other websites. We do not control, endorse, sponsor, recommend, or otherwise accept responsibility for third-party content, services, or websites. When you click on hyperlinks, you do so at your own risk.
No Warranty or Liability
We are human, and we make mistakes. When accessing our content or services, you may encounter delayes, interruptions, outages, errors, omissions, inaccuracies and other difficulties. If you choose to rely on our content or services, you do so solely at your own risk.
If you purchase access to specific content, such as a particular newsletter, event, or recording, you agree that any damages arising out of or relating to that purchase and content will be capped at — for subscription services — the total amount paid for the preceding three months’ access, or — in the case of a one-time event or purchase — a full refund.
This agreement is governed by the internal laws of the District of Columbia and of the United States, without reference to any choice of law rules. When you use our services, you waive any claims that may arise under the laws of other countries, territories or jurisdictions.
These Terms are the entire agreement between you and us; they govern your use of our services. Any exceptions or modifications to these Terms must be explicitly confirmed in writing by us.
If any portion of this agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid and enforceable, while the remaining portions remain in full force and effect. Any failure to assert—or delay in asserting—any right under this agreement shall not operate as a waiver of that, or any other, right under this agreement.
