Welcome to the website of Maven Media Group Inc. ("we", "us", "our" and similar terms based on the context), we're glad you're here. These Website Terms of Use ("Terms of Use") apply to the URL of this website and any other website where we show these terms (each a "Site"). We run each Site to share information about us, our products and services, and the opportunities we offer. By using a Site, you agree to these Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy. We may change these Terms of Use anytime without telling you before. If you use a Site after we change the Terms of Use, you agree to follow and be bound by the changed Terms of Use. The last date we updated these Terms of Use is stated above. Since our Terms of Use govern your use of a Site, please read them carefully.

1. How You're Allowed to Use the Site.

You may use a Site, and the information, content, images, or other works that you see, hear, or otherwise experience on a Site (collectively, the "Content") only for your own non-commercial purposes or to learn about us and our products and services.

4. Links to Third-Party Websites and Third-Party Content.

We may link to third-party websites or information (“Links") or provide third-party content on the Site such as posts, blogs, or articles, social media posts, video, other embedded content, information we believe is relevant to the Site and other third-party content we sometimes include on the Site (collectively, "Third-Party Content"). Links and Third-Party Content are provided only for your convenience. We are not responsible for the availability of any Links, the websites to which they are related, Third-Party Content, or any content that we do not create, own, or control, and we are not responsible or liable for your use of them. The terms and policies of third parties may apply to Links or Third-Party Content. You should review the applicable terms and policies carefully. Including Links or Third-Party Content on a Site does not mean we have endorsed, sponsored, or recommended the third-party, its website, or any of its information.

5. Downloading Files.

We cannot and do not guarantee or warrant that any files available for downloading through a Site will be free of infection by software viruses or other harmful computer code, files, or programs.

6. Electronic Communications.

When you use the Site to send us messages, or send e-mails, text messages, and other communications from any device to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You agree to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you electronically in a variety of ways, such as by e-mail, text, or by posting notices and messages on the Site or through its communication functions. You agree that all notices, agreements, messages, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that the communications be in writing. You may unsubscribe from our commercial electronic messages through the unsubscribe mechanisms we provide in our messages. Our mailing address, telephone number, and general contact email are available in the footer of the Site or where otherwise shown on the Site.

7. Contests and Promotions.

We may sometimes run contests, sweepstakes, promotions, giveaways, prizes, and similar activities ("Contests") through the Site. Contests are subject to their own terms and conditions as stated in the description of the Contest. All Contests are subject to applicable law, including any relevant eligibility restrictions. Depending on the laws of your location, you may not be able to participate in Contests and if that is the case, you agree to not participate in or access the Contest. We may also feature Contests of third parties on our Site where we think the Contests are of interest to our Site visitors and users. All third-party Contests are Third-Party Content.

8. Professional Services.

  1. Not a Client Relationship, Yet. Although we provide professional services, your use of the Site does not create a professional-client or fiduciary relationship with us. While your use of the Site may help you access or communicate with the professionals that work with us, our professional services and a client relationship with you are subject to us agreeing to a services agreement, retainer letter, or similar document with you before we provide professional services to you.
  2. Content is not Professional Advice. The Content is not professional advice and is provided for information only. We are not responsible for you relying on the Content, even when written by one of our professionals who is knowledgeable about the subject matter. The Content is not a substitute for qualified professional advice, whether from us or another party.

9. Artificial Intelligence

  1. AI Models; Inputs. We may offer or integrate artificial intelligence features into the Site (each, an "AI Model"). Any AI Model integrated into the Site may be subject to additional terms that we or a third-party (for example, the provider of the AI Model) ask you to accept when you access the AI Model. You are responsible for making sure that any summary, text, instructions, or other content you use with an AI Model (collectively, "Inputs") are appropriate and permissible under the agreements you have with us or a third-party and all applicable laws.
  2. Outputs. Use of an AI Model may result in content, materials, data, visuals, metrics, insights, optimizations, recommendations, and other output generated or provided by the AI Model (collectively, "Outputs"). Since AI Models are a new technology that is still being developed and tested, Outputs sometimes are inaccurate, may contain errors, and may not be free from bias. That being the case, you are cautioned to carefully review Outputs before relying on them. You also agree to ensure that your use of any Output does not violate the intellectual property rights or proprietary rights of any party. You are not required to use any Outputs and are free to and should modify them as appropriate. Outputs may not be protectable under copyright or other intellectual property rights, proprietary rights, or applicable law. Due to the nature of generative artificial intelligence, Outputs may not be unique, and the AI Model may generate or provide the same or similar Output for you as it generates or provides for other parties.
  3. AI Models are Third-Party Services. We use certain third parties to provide AI Models, including to generate Outputs and to process and store Inputs and Outputs in private hosting environments. By using an AI Model, you authorize and agree that these third parties may access, use, and store any Inputs and Outputs according to their applicable terms and privacy policies. We are not responsible for the services or actions of the third parties involved in providing you with the AI Models.
  4. Our Rights to Inputs and Outputs. By using an AI Model, you agree that we and our affiliates may process Inputs and Outputs (including any intellectual property contained in them) into de-identified, anonymized, or aggregated data (which means data that cannot identify you) to be used for any purpose, including to develop and improve an AI Model and for machine learning purposes to research, develop, and improve an AI Model and our products and services.
  5. Languages and Other Limitations. AI Models may only be available in certain languages and may be subject to limitations (e.g., restrictions on use for certain types of customers or for certain purposes).
  6. Availability of AI Models. The laws and regulations governing artificial intelligence and related technology are uncertain and evolving, and the ability to use an AI Model or Outputs may be adversely impacted in the future by changes to applicable laws. So, we may modify, suspend, discontinue, or limit use of the AI Model without notice or compensation if required, in our discretion, to comply with applicable laws related to AI Models.
  7. Compliance with Laws. You agree to follow all applicable laws when you use AI Models and any Outputs.

10. Automated Decision Making.

Some jurisdictions have laws about automated decision making tools, including the right of individuals to submit observations regarding automated decision making with their personal information or the right to have human intervention where a decision is made by automated means. You may exercise these rights by contacting us. For more information, see also our Privacy Policy.

11. Disclaimers; Waivers; Limitations of Liability.

  1. General Disclaimer. We and our service providers, licensors, and suppliers do not make any promises about the suitability, reliability, availability, timeliness, security or accuracy of a Site or the Content for any purpose. To the maximum extent allowed by law, all information, software, products, services, websites, and related content are provided "as is" without warranty or condition of any kind. We and our service providers, licensors, and suppliers disclaim all warranties and conditions of any kind regarding a Site and Content, including all implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement. No statement or information, whether oral or written, obtained from us creates any warranty not clearly and explicitly stated in these Terms of Use. The Content may include inaccuracies or typographical errors.
  2. Consequential Losses. To the maximum extent allowed by law, we and our service providers, licensors, or suppliers are not liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential, exemplary, or other similar damages, including damages for loss of use, data, or lost revenue or profits, caused by or in any way connected with the use or performance of a Site, with the delay or inability to use a Site, or for any content, or otherwise caused by the use of a Site, whether based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, the failure of any limited remedy to achieve its essential purpose, or otherwise, even if we or any of our suppliers has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you.
  3. Cap on Liability. If, despite these Terms of Use, we are determined to have any liability to you or any third party for any loss, harm, or damage, you agree that our and our affiliates' total liability and that of our and their respective shareholders, partners, members, officers, directors, managers, employees, agents, contractors, service providers, licensors, or suppliers shall in all cases be limited to one hundred dollars.

12. Indemnification.

To "indemnify" means to compensate someone for harm or loss they suffer due to the other party's actions or failure to act. An indemnification clause says the other party will defend the harmed party in any claim made against them by a third party and will cover the cost of the losses. The intent is to shift liability away from one party on to the indemnifying party. You understand and agree that you are personally responsible for your behavior on a Site. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless us and our parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, joint ventures, business partners, officers, directors, employees, licensors, agents, and any third-party information providers from and against all claims, losses, expenses, damages and costs (including direct, incidental, consequential, exemplary, and indirect damages), and reasonable attorneys' fees, caused by or arising out of your use, misuse, or inability to use a Site or the Content, or any violation by you of these Terms of Use.
