nousDECOR™ TERMS OF USE


TERMS OF USE

Effective: July 1st, 2013

Welcome to NousDecor, bringing together one vibrant, eclectic community to search, shop, share, create and inspire decor ideas on any given budget or style. We are a social platform for creating and sharing decor Moodboards that includes a comprehensive decor library, communication spaces, a marketplace and a means to upload your pictures. In this document, our Terms of Use, we collectively refer to NousDecor as “Us”, or “the Service(s)” or “Site.”

What is a Terms of Use?

A Terms of Use (“TOU”) is a legally binding contract between Us and You that describes the rules for using a given set of Services. This TOU applies to participating in this community and using our Services-- including the NousDecor website, https://www.nousdecor.com/. Everything you need to know about how you may use this Service is in this document and our Privacy Policy, which is part of this TOU and describes how we collect, use and disclose your Personally Identifiable Information.

So, what can I do?

We grant you a personal, limited, non-exclusive license to use the Service for the purposes described in this document. You may not transfer this license to anyone else, and it may be revoked by us at any time for any reason. Simply put, we are allowing you to use this site provided that you follow the rules.

By creating an account on NousDecor or otherwise using the Site or our Services you acknowledge that you are of legal age to enter a contract and agree to these Terms. If you do not agree, do not create an account or use our Site.

How do I get started with an Account?

Anyone can visit and browse our website at any time, subject to this TOU. However, if you want to do more than Browse Moodboards or Shop for Decor, you will need a NousDecor account. To create an account, we require a user name, password and a valid email address. We only permit one account per user name.

If you select a trademarked company as your user name, you are representing that you are an authorized agent of that company. If we receive complaints, or otherwise become aware of an account that infringes a registered trademark, we will terminate your account. [Obviously, if your name just happens to match a trademarked company brand, we do not consider that infringing on any trademark.]

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and are responsible forr any activities that occur in association with your user name. If you suspect that the security of your password or account has been compromised, it is your responsibility to notify us immediately at support@nousdecor.com.

You may also sign-in to NousDecor with your Facebook user name and password.

You Own Your User Content But We Can Use It And Let Others In the Community Use It.

Anything that you create, post or upload on the Site is considered “User Content.” This includes, for example, your Moodboards, images that you upload, comments you make on other Moodboards, the information in your Account Profile, or messages you send to us and other users.

When you create User Content, you represent that you have the rights to that User Content, and by doing so, you grant NousDecor a non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable, irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide right to store, display, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, and distribute your User Content. This means that when you post or upload User Content to NousDecor, you allow us to use it, and us to allow other NousDecor users to use it, in connection with the Service, but you still own your User Content.

You May Deactivate Your Account
