The children’s online privacy protection act (“coppa”) requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from a child under 13 without obtaining verifiable consent from that child’s parent or guardian (“parental consent”), except for the limited amount of personally identifiable information we need to collect in order to obtain parental consent (“required information”). Until we have received parental consent, we will only use required information for the purpose of obtaining parental consent. If you are a child under 13, please do not attempt to send any personal information about yourself to us before we obtain parental consent, except for the required information in the context of the parental consent process. If you believe that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information (beyond the required information) without our obtaining parental consent, please contact us at email@example.com.
3. User responsibilities
Any information or content publicly posted or privately transmitted through the services is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such content originated, and user accesses all such information and content at user’s own risk, and Ping4 is not liable for any errors or omissions in that information or content or for any damages or loss user might suffer in connection with it. Ping4 cannot control and has no duty to take any action regarding how user may interpret and use the content on the service or what actions user may take as a result of having been exposed to the content, and user hereby releases us from all liability for user having acquired or not acquired content through the services. We can’t guarantee the identity of any users with whom user interacts in using the services and are not responsible for which users gain access to the services.
User is responsible for all content user contributes, in any manner, to the services, and user represents and warrants that it has all rights necessary to do so, in the manner in which user contributes it. User will keep all registration information accurate and current. User is responsible for all its activity in connection with the services.
Ping4 has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, accuracy, privacy policies, or practices of or opinions expressed in any third party websites or by any third party that you interact with through the services. In addition, Ping4 will not and cannot monitor, verify, censor or edit the content of any third party site or service. By using the services, user releases and holds us harmless from any and all liability arising from your use of any third party website or service.
User’s interactions with organizations and/or individuals found on or through the services, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between user and such organizations and/or individuals. User should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties. User agrees that Ping4 shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings. If there is a dispute between participants on this site, or between users and any third party, user agrees that user is under no obligation to become involved.

If user is a California resident, you shall and hereby do waive California civil code section 1542, which says: “a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
4. User content
For all user content, user hereby grants Ping4 a license to translate, modify (for technical purposes, for example making sure your content is viewable on an iPhone as well as a computer) and reproduce and otherwise act with respect to such user contents, in each case to enable us to operate the services, as described in more detail below. This is a license only – user’s ownership of user content is not affected.
If user shares user content publicly on the services and/or in a manner that more than just user can view, or if user provides us (in a direct email or otherwise) with any feedback, suggestions, improvements, enhancements, and/or feature requests relating to the services (each of the foregoing, “public user content”), then user grants Ping4 the licenses above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute your public user content for the purpose of making that public user content accessible to other users and providing the services necessary to do so, as well as all other rights necessary to use and exercise all rights in that public user content in connection with the services and/or otherwise in connection with Ping4’s business. Also, user grants all other users of the services a license to access that public user content, and to use and exercise all rights in it, as permitted by the functionality of the services.
User agrees that the licenses you grant are royalty-free, perpetual, sublicenseable, irrevocable, and worldwide. Finally, user understands and agrees that Ping4, in performing the required technical steps to provide the services to our users (including user), may need to make changes user content to conform and adapt that user content to the technical requirements of connection networks, devices, services, or media, and the foregoing licenses include the rights to do so.

In no event shall Ping4 be liable for damages of any kind relating in any way to the Ping4 service or for any commercial party’s or governmental authority’s or third party’s notifications or course of conduct. Based upon user’s licensed use of the service, user’s sole remedy for any claims with respect to any aspect of the service, is to cease user’s use of the service. Direct monetary damages for any proven claim, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction, shall be expressly limited by the total amount of revenue paid by user to Ping4 during the then current license term.
