Terms & Conditions of Use


StoryServer is a trademark of Anthony Bouch. This document outlines StoryServer’s terms and conditions of use, as well as its acceptable usage policy. You agree to these terms when you register with StoryServer. Since we’re a small, but growing service these terms may change over time. We’ll be sure to notify you of any changes when they occur.

StoryServer is an online service (“Service”), which enables photographers and creative professionals, to store photographs, images, and related metadata for publication via a set of application programming interfaces (APIs) and plugins. StoryServer does not publish your images directly; it simply exposes a service through which other Web applications - including WordPress and Drupal, can present or expose the images and data you’ve placed on the StoryServer servers. If you register with StoryServer a complete description of how the service works, along with links to available plugins, will be included in the help pages of the site.

Users of the service become “Subscribers” of the “Service” when they complete the registration process including choosing a username and password. We’ll refer to all data uploaded to the “Service” (including all photos, images, image metadata, and personal data) as “Subscriber Data”.

StoryServer respects content owners’ copyright. Under no circumstance will StoryServer use images or data that belongs to subscribers of the service without the express and advanced permission of the content owner.

Likewise, StoryServer expects its subscribers to respect the copyright of others and any violation of copyright may result in account termination (including the removal of all subscriber data from the StoryServer servers).

With the exception of subscriber data (photos, images, data uploaded to the service by subscribers), and unless otherwise specifically noted, all of the content on the StoryServer Web site, including all software, plugins, graphics, and text are the property of Anthony Bouch.

All subscriber data (photos, images, and data uploaded to the service by subscribers) remains the intellectual property of the legal content owner. StoryServer does not claim any ownership, rights or interest in subscriber data.

Acceptable Use

By registering with StoryServer you agree that all subscriber data uploaded to the service is the sole responsibility of the subscriber of the service and not of StoryServer, or Anthony Bouch. You also promise not to use the service for any purpose that is unlawful or specifically prohibited by these Terms, including the publication any material that is libelous, defamatory, fraudulent, abusive, or otherwise harmful including any form of hate speech or racist discourse.

StoryServer maintains an informal editorial committee. The committee subscribes to basic principles of press and journalistic freedoms and reserves the right to decide if material that includes nudity or violence represents a violation of the Terms of this service.

Liability

StorySever will make every effort to ensure that the service is provided at the highest level of availability. However, the StoryServer service is provided ‘as is’, without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including but not limited to the warranties of fitness for a particular purpose. In no event shall StoryServer, or Anthony Bouch, be liable for any claim, damages or other liability, whether in an action of contract, tort, or otherwise, arising from or out of the use of this service, or the use of other dealings with software provided by this service.
