TERMS OF SERVICE
Last updated 7 June, 2022
As a global platform for authentic expressions and self-organisation, Loominate is deeply committed to supporting and protecting freedom of speech where opposing views can co-exist and the unique perspectives of each individual are respected and included. To achieve this, we draw lines around a few narrowly defined categories of content and behavior that might jeopardize this mission.
What Loominate is for
Loominate enables and celebrates authenticity and freedom of speech and action. We want to create a safe space for everyone.
Agreement to terms
Modifications to Terms
The information provided on the Platform is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject us to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country. Accordingly, those persons who choose to access the Platform from other locations do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
The Platform is not tailored to comply with industry-specific regulations (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), etc.), so if your interactions would be subjected to such laws, you may not use this Platform. You may not use the Platform in a way that would violate the Gramm- Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA).
Eligibility to use the platform
To access or use the Platform, you must be at least 16 years of age or, if older, the age of majority in your jurisdiction. Otherwise you may not use the Platform. Except as set forth below, or as otherwise approved by us, the Platform is for your personal, non-commercial use unless you enter into a separate agreement with us for your commercial use. You may not use the Platform if we have terminated your account or banned you. An employer and its authorized agent(s) are permitted to use the employer's account and any data about that employer provided via that account for the employer's internal business purposes.
If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Platform (or any portion thereof).
You may be required to register with the Platform. You agree to keep your password/passcode confidential and will be responsible for all use of your account and password. We reserve the right to remove, reclaim, or change a username you select if we determine, in our sole discretion, that such username is inappropriate, obscene, or otherwise objectionable.
Loominate Platform Account. When you register for an account, you may be required to provide us with some information about yourself, such as your name, employer, email address, phone number, or other contact information. You agree that the information you provide to us is accurate and that you will keep it accurate and up-to-date at all times. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account, and you accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. Loominate disclaims any liability for third party actions made under your account. Once you have set up a password, you will be given access to your profile and other private areas of your account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You agree to notify us immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your account or access to your password. You are solely responsible for any and all use of your account. Passwords are subject to cancellation or suspension by Loominate at any time. When you set up an individual user account on the Platform, we create a member profile (a "Profile") for you that will include personal information you provide. Loominate will use its best efforts to verify your organisation membership through various methods including entity email verification. Loominate is not responsible if it is unable to properly verify your membership.
You understand that the default confidentiality setting for your user profile is that your company name, title, and other information (but not including your posts, comments, or reactions) will be visible to all users within your organisation’s space. You acknowledge that Loominate cannot guarantee your anonymity since, depending on your specific situation and circumstances and the contents of your posts, semi-anonymous identifiers (such as username) may allow someone to identify you or narrow down your identity to a smaller group of employees at your company. You should understand this risk before contributing content to the Platform.
Third-party websites and content
Because we do not control such Content, you understand and agree that:
we are not responsible for, and do not endorse, any such Content, including advertising and information about third-party products and services, job ads, or the employer and salary-related information provided by other users, or the opinions of panelists, bowl leaders, or other users, including those involved in audio events, or translations, transcriptions, or captions of any such Content; we make no guarantees about the accuracy, currency, suitability, reliability or quality of the information in such Content, including translations, transcriptions, or captions; and we assume no responsibility for unintended, objectionable, inaccurate, misleading, or unlawful Content made available by users, advertisers, and third parties.
In accordance with Section 230 of the U.S. Communications Decency Act, and any equivalent or similar laws in other jurisdictions which are intended to exclude or limit the liability of online service providers who provide access to user-generated content, we generally cannot be held liable for claims arising from the Content provided by third parties on the Platform.
You represent, warrant and covenant that you are not located in, or a resident or a national of, any country subject to a U.S. government embargo, sanctions, or other restriction, or that has been designated by the U.S. government as a “terrorist supporting” country; on any of the U.S. government lists of restricted end users; or
the subject of sanctions consistent with U.S. law imposed by the government of the country where you are using the Platform.
Links to Third-Party Websites. The Platform may contain links to third-party websites placed by us as a service to those interested in this information or posted by other users. Your use of all such links to third-party websites is at your own risk. We do not monitor or have any control over, and make no claim or representation, regarding third-party websites. To the extent such links are provided by us, they are provided only as a convenience, and a link to a third-party website does not imply our endorsement, adoption, or sponsorship of, or affiliation with, such third-party website. When you leave the Platform, our terms and policies do not govern your use of third-party websites.
User Generated Contributions
The Platform may invite you to chat, contribute to, or participate in blogs, message boards, online forums, and other functionality, and may provide you with the opportunity to create, submit, post, display, transmit, perform, publish, distribute, or broadcast content and materials to us or on the Platform, including but not limited to text, writings, video, audio, photographs, graphics, comments, suggestions, or personal information or other material (collectively, "Contributions"). Contributions may be viewable by other users of the Platform and through third-party websites. As such, any Contributions you transmit may be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary. When you create or make available any Contributions, you thereby represent and warrant that:

11. Your Contributions do not violate any applicable law concerning child pornography, or otherwise intended to protect the health or well-being of minors.

This license will apply to any form, media, or technology now known or hereafter developed, and includes our use of your name, company name, and franchise name, as applicable, and any of the trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, and personal and commercial images you provide. You waive all moral rights in your Contributions, and you warrant that moral rights have not otherwise been asserted in your Contributions.
We do not assert any ownership over your Contributions. You retain full ownership of all of your Contributions and any intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights associated with your Contributions. We are not liable for any statements or representations in your Contributions provided by you in any area on the Platform. You are solely responsible for your Contributions to the Platform and you expressly agree to exonerate us from any and all responsibility and to refrain from any legal action against us regarding your Contributions.
While we do not claim ownership in any Contributions you submit to the Platform, you grant us the rights, to use such Contributions as set forth below:

(2) to re-categorize any Content Contributions to place them in more appropriate locations on the Platform;
