TERMS OF USE




TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SITE USE

Set forth below are the terms and conditions (these “Terms and Conditions”) governing the web site owned and operated by JazzBoston, Inc., its successors, assigns, agents, distributors and licensees (collectively, “JazzBoston”) located at, or linked to through, the root URL www.jazzboston.com, which may expand or change from time to time (the “Site”). As used herein, the term “you” or “your” refers to an individual, representing yourself or, if applicable, acting as legal representative for a group, business entity or corporation.

CAREFULLY READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. BY AVAILING YOURSELF OF THE SITE OR RELATED SERVICES, YOU ARE CONSENTING TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AS SUCH TERMS MAY BE MODIFIED FROM TIME TO TIME AS DESCRIBED BELOW.

1. Use of Content Found on the Site:

The information, artwork, text, video, audio, pictures, software and other intellectual property (collectively, “Content”) contained on the Site are protected by copyright and international laws. You may only access and use the Content for personal or educational purposes. You may not otherwise reproduce, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, modify or create derivative works of the Content, unless authorized by the appropriate copyright owner(s). In the event that you print Content found on the Site, you must include any copyright notice originally included with the Content on all copies. You may not link directly to any media file located on a JazzBoston server, except where explicitly allowed to do so. You should not attempt to claim any Content as your own work.

2. Copyright and Trademark Infringement Policy and Notification Procedure:

JazzBoston does not own the Content posted to the Site for access by the general public. All Content is owned by an individual, group or company (collectively, the “Artist”) who has represented and warranted to JazzBoston that, among other things, neither the Content nor the names, trademarks and service marks under which Content is promoted (collectively, the “Name”) infringes any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights, rights of publicity or privacy, or moral rights.

Since JazzBoston is not in a position to determine who has the prevailing claim to use any particular Content or Name posted to the Site, its policy on such matters is that they be resolved directly by the parties alleging misuse of their Content and/or Name (the “Complainants”) and the Artists. We recommend that Complainants immediately notify Artists about allegations of infringement by going to the Artist’s page on the Site, clicking the Contact link and contacting the Artist directly.

Complainants may notify JazzBoston concerning any Content and/or Name being used on the Site in violation of their rights by sending an email to info@jazzboston.org. JazzBoston may then investigate such allegations and take action in its own discretion, which may include the immediate removal of the allegedly infringing Content and/or Name from those JazzBoston web pages identified or, at the election of JazzBoston, remove those web pages.

3. Your Conduct:

You shall Site for lawful purposes only. In addition, if JazzBoston feels that a user is abusing the Site in any way, JazzBoston reserve the right to share certain information with third parties. An example of abuse includes (but is not limited to) copyright infringement.
