We’re happy for you to post, upload, store, publish, display and distribute your own information, text, photos, videos and other content on or through jane, so long as it’s yours and not troubling someone else’s rights.
We’ll call your stuff, “User Content”.
Be aware that you’re totally responsible for your User Content, not us.
You’re also responsible for any transactions (usually eCommerce payments) or other activities that occur on your website(s) hosted by jane.
The legal way of saying this
You “represent” and “warrant” to jane that:
- You own all the rights in the stuff you post or distribute
- You’re not infringing or violating the rights of any third party
Give us a license to serve you
If we’re going to reliably host your User Content to the world, to do our job properly, our servers are going to have to use, reproduce, publicly perform, publicly display, modify, translate, take excerpts from, publish, and distribute it.
Long story short, this is part of being a good host. Unless Captain Kirk and the Klingons show up from the year 3001 with a new method of computational physics, our current earthling servers can’t host your stuff without doing any and all the things we’ve named above.
So that we don’t have to pay you for what every other host would have to do to your stuff anyway, we are asking you for a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide right and license to do all of the above, and make archival and back-up copies of your stuff and websites.
By hosting your websites with jane, you agree to give us this license so we can roll up our sleeves and get on with our job.
You own all your User Content
jane doesn’t own or control your stuff. You do, so we don’t have to be responsible for it.
This includes all your content that gets beamed around our computers, network hubs, datacenters and between us and the rest of the internet.
It excludes “Delivered Work” if you have been paid to deliver material as a Seller to a Buyer on our marketplace. Such material is covered by our Marketplace Rules.
We don’t spy on you
jane doesn’t monitor what you’re doing.
We’ll take it at your word that you’re always agreeing with our agreement, but if we find out that you are doing the dirty on us, consider it fair game when you’re booted off our server without a refund.
There’s a word that lawyers use called “liability” that is jargon for the word, “debt”.
You agree that if you break the agreement, and we react to put things right (for example, by deleting stuff on our server that we’re offended by), we don’t have to pay you and have no “liability” or debt to you if our actions end up being a problem your end.
