In the event you use a service, feature, or functionality that is operated by a third party and made available through our Services (including Services we jointly offer with the third party), each party’s terms will govern as to the respective party’s relationship with you. In these instances, we will take steps to make the third party’s terms available to you before you begin to use the service, feature, or functionality.
Although these Terms form a proper legal contract, and therefore look like a proper legal contract, the majority of them are simply designed to ensure our users have a great experience and enjoy the Services. These Terms let us provide and continue to improve our Services, while at the same time ensuring that everyone is aware of their responsibilities. Be a good user and treat others with respect.

We may, in our sole discretion, refuse to offer the Services to any person or entity. We may, without notice and in our sole discretion, terminate your right to use the Services, or any portion thereof, and block or prevent your future access to and use of the Services or any portion thereof.
The Services consist of interactive features and areas that allow users to create, post, transmit, and/or store content, including but not limited to photos, text, graphics, or other materials (collectively, "User Content"). You understand that you are responsible for all data charges you incur by using the Services. You also understand that your User Content may be viewable by others.
You agree that you are solely responsible for your User Content and any claims arising therefrom, and that synco is not responsible or liable for any User Content or claims arising therefrom.

You retain all ownership rights in your User Content. However, by submitting User Content to synco, you hereby grant us an irrevocable, nonexclusive, worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free, sublicensable, and transferable license to use, publish, distribute, modify, reproduce, create derivative works from, promote, exhibit, and display such User Content in any and all media or distribution methods, currently in use or created in the future (the "User Content License"), subject to any privacy settings you have set to control who can see your User Content. No use of User Content shall entitle you to any compensation from synco, or any other companies, organizations, or individuals.
You agree that any feedback, suggestions, ideas, or other information or materials regarding synco or the Services that you provide, whether by email or otherwise ("Feedback"), are non-confidential and shall become the sole property of synco. We will be entitled to the unrestricted use and dissemination of such Feedback for any purpose, commercial or otherwise, without acknowledging or compensating you. You waive any rights you may have to the Feedback (including any copyrights or moral rights). We like hearing from users, but please do not share your ideas with us if you expect to be paid or want to continue to own or claim rights in them.
Unless otherwise stated, all materials contained on or within the Services, including, but not limited to, text, graphics, images, code, illustrations, designs, icons, photographs, video clips, and written and other materials (collectively, "Synco Content"), as well as their selection and arrangement, are protected by copyright, trademark, trade dress, patent, and/or other intellectual property laws.

THE SERVICES AND THE SYNCO CONTENT ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.

The Services are hosted in the United States. If you are a user accessing the Services from the European Union, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure that differ from United States laws, please be advised that through your continued use of the Services, which are governed by U.S. law, you are transferring your personal information to the United States and you consent to that transfer.
By agreeing to these Terms you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless synco, our managing members, shareholders, employees, affiliates, licensors, and suppliers (the "Synco Parties") from and against any and all complaints, charges, claims, damages, losses, costs, liabilities, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) due to, arising out of, or relating in any way to (a) your access to or use of the Services; (b) any User Content you post, upload, use, distribute, store, or otherwise transmit through the Services; (c) your violation of these Terms; (d) your violation of the rights of another, including without limitation, any intellectual property right, publicity, confidentiality, privacy, or propriety right; or (e) your violation of any statutes, codes, ordinances, laws, rules, regulations, including without limitation, all regulatory, administrative, and legislative authorities.
2. Limitation of Liability
Except where prohibited by law, in no event will synco or the Synco Parties be liable for any indirect, special, punitive, incidental, exemplary, or consequential damages that result from (a) the use of, or inability to use, the Services; (b) the provision of the Services or any materials available therein; or (c) the conduct of other users of the Services, even if synco has been advised of the possibility of such damages. You assume total responsibility for your use of the Services. Your only remedy against synco for dissatisfaction with the Services or any content is to stop using the Services. If, notwithstanding these Terms, synco is found liable to you for any damage or loss that arises out of or is in any way connected with your use of the Services or any content, synco’s liability shall in no event exceed $1.00. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations of liability, so the foregoing limitation may not apply to you.

4. Forum and Venue
A lawsuit, if any, by you or synco against the other will occur in state or federal court in Broward County, Florida. You and synco agree that the jurisdiction and venue of these courts is exclusive.
Any dispute between you and synco will be governed by these Terms and the laws of the State of Florida and applicable United States law, without giving effect to any conflict-of-laws principles that may provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
These Terms supersede all prior understandings regarding the same and represent the complete agreement between you and synco. These Terms do no create or confer any third-party beneficiary rights. We may change or modify these Terms at any time and in our sole discretion. If we make changes to these Terms, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by sending a notification, posting a notice on the Services, or updating the "Last Updated" date above. Your continued use of the Services will confirm your acceptance of the revised Terms. We encourage you to frequently review the Terms to ensure you understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Services. If you do not agree to the amended Terms, you must stop using the Services and delete your synco account.
