Certain portions of the Site may be secured or otherwise protected from access except for authorized users with valid login and password information. Individuals without authorization attempting to access these portions of the Site may be subject to prosecution.

Your access to and use of the Site may be interrupted from time to time as a result of equipment malfunction, updating, maintenance or repair of the Site or any other reason within or outside the control of 1KM. 1KM reserves the right to suspend or discontinue the availability of the Site and/or any Service and/or remove any Content at any time at its sole discretion and without prior notice. 1KM may also impose limits on certain features and Services or restrict your access to parts of or all of the Site and the Services without notice or liability.

Content

Use of Content. You may view Content within the Services for your own personal, internal use in connection with your use of the Services, in accordance with the normal functionality and restrictions of the Services. We may also provide interactive features that enable you to post or share certain Content in a way that will be accessible to others, in which case you may use such features to post or share such Content, but only in accordance with the normal functionality and restrictions of such features; and such features do not imply any further permission to use any Content in any other manner. Except as expressly permitted in this Agreement, you agree not to reproduce, distribute, adapt, modify, translate, create derivative works from, publish or otherwise use any Content for any purpose without express prior written permission from 1KM or the applicable rights holder. Any commercial exploitation of any images or other Content without express prior written permission from 1KM or the applicable rights holder is strictly prohibited.

Mature Content Warning. Please note that Content displayed on and in connection with the Services covers a wide range of art and subject matter, is generally uncensored, and may include nudity or other visual or written material that some people may consider offensive or inappropriate for children and minors. If you allow your child or any other minor to use your computer or other Internet compatible device, it is solely your responsibility to prevent them from accessing any Content that you think is or may be inappropriate for them.

Third Party Content. Some of the content available through the Site may include materials that belong to third parties. We also obtain business addresses, phone numbers, hours and other contact information from public sources, as well as third party vendors who obtain their data from public sources. We have no control over, and make no representation or endorsement regarding the accuracy, relevancy, copyright compliance, legality, completeness, timeliness or quality of any product, services, advertisements and other content appearing in or linked to from the Site. We do not screen or investigate all third party material before or after including them on our Site. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion and without any obligation, to make improvements to, or correct any error or omissions in, any portion of the content accessible on the Site. Where appropriate, we may in our sole discretion and without any obligation, verify any updates, modifications, or changes to any content accessible on the Site, but shall not be liable for any delay or inaccuracies related to such updates.

Third party content, including those posted by our users, do not reflect our views or that of our parent, subsidiary, affiliated companies, employees, officers, directors, or shareholders. In addition, none of the content available through the Site are endorsed or certified by the providers or licensors of such third party content. We assume no responsibility or liability for any of User Content or any third party content. In addition, we do not assume responsibility or liability for any claims, damages or losses resulting from your reliance or use of the Site, any Third Party Properties or the materials contained herein or therein. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we expressly disclaim any liability for any offensive, defamatory, illegal, invasive, unfair, or infringing content provided by third parties.

1KM respects the intellectual property rights of others. It is our policy to respond promptly any claim that Content posted on the Site infringes the copyright or other intellectual property infringement (“Infringement”) of any person. 1KM will use reasonable efforts to investigate notices of alleged Infringement and will take appropriate action under applicable intellectual property law and these Terms where it believes an Infringement has taken place, including removing or disabling access to the Content claimed to be infringing and/or terminating accounts and access to the Site.

To notify 1KM of a possible Infringement you must submit your notice in writing to the attention of “Copyright Infringement” care of customerservice@1000museums.com and include in your notice a detailed description of the alleged Infringement sufficient to enable 1KM to make a reasonable determination. Please note that you may be held accountable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) for misrepresenting that any Content is infringing your copyright.

If we remove or disable access to Content in response to a notice of Infringement, we will make reasonable attempts to contact the user who posted the affected Content. If you feel that your Content is not infringing, you may provide 1KM with a counter notice in writing to the attention of “Copyright Infringement Counter Notification” at customerservice@1000museums.com. You must include in your counter notice sufficient information to enable 1KM to make a reasonable determination. Please note that you may be held accountable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) if you materially misrepresent that your Content is not infringing the copyrights of others.

If you are uncertain whether an activity constitutes Infringement, we recommended seeking advice of an attorney.

The Services may provide, or third parties may provide, links to other websites or resources. Because 1KM has no control over such sites and resources, you acknowledge and agree that 1KM is not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources, and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products or other materials on or available from such sites or resources.

Miscellaneous

No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of the Terms and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind 1KM in any respect whatsoever.

If any provision of the Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. 1KM may transfer, assign or delegate the Terms and its rights and obligations without consent. The Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Washington, as if made within the state of Washington between two residents thereof, and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state of Washington courts. Both parties agree that the Terms is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of the Terms, and that all modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein.
