DeluxeSocial℠ Social Media Terms of Use

1. Description of the Services.

1.1 DeluxeSocial Full Service. Deluxe will create social media messages for you and set up a content-approval process through which you will be able to review, comment on and provide approval of the messages we post on your behalf. You therefore agree to grant us administrative access to your social media sites for the limited purpose of creating and posting messages on your behalf. If you limit our access to your social media sites you will still be responsible for paying us the related monthly service fee. Please note that we require your approval for business-specific messaging and, until we receive that approval, no new content will be published on your social media channels.

1.2 DeluxeSocial Page Creator. Deluxe will create custom social media tabs for your social media site. We are not responsible for (a) reminding you to keep up-to-date information displayed on your social media pages, (b) monitoring, managing or responding to commentary on your social media page (unless otherwise agreed), or (c) making sure that all content you provide for inclusion on your social media page is non-infringing and owned by you or authorized to be used by you. By posting content on your social media page, you are allowing others to view and share your User Content.

NOTE: Upon termination or cancellation of the Services only the custom social media tabs we create for you will be deleted and are not recoverable; your basic business social media account, e.g. Facebook and any of your User Content posted there remains intact.

1.3 DeluxeSocial Manager. Deluxe will provide a social media dashboard to allow you to manage your social media activities on multiple channels. We are not responsible for (a) reminding you to keep up-to-date information displayed on your social media pages, (b) monitoring, managing or responding to commentary on your social media page (unless otherwise agreed), or (c) making sure that all content you provide for inclusion on your social media page is non-infringing and owned by you or authorized to be used by you. By posting content on your social media page, you are allowing others to view and share your User Content.

2. Use of the Services

2.1 You shall abide by all applicable state and local laws and regulations and the terms of services of all third party providers in connection with your use of the Service. You may not use the Service in a way that violates our Anti-Spam or Acceptable Use policies.

2.2 You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Service, including your User Content, may involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices. You understand that the Service and software embodied within the Service may include security components that permit digital materials to be protected, and use of these materials is subject to usage rules set by Deluxe and/or third party content providers who provide content to the Service. You may not attempt to override or circumvent any of the usage rules embedded into the Service. Any unauthorized reproduction, publication, further distribution or public exhibition of the materials provided on the Service, in whole or in part, is strictly prohibited. If, in our sole discretion, we reasonably conclude that you are or may be in breach of any of the above, we reserve the right to immediately terminate your account and your access to and use of the Services.

2.3 Notice applicable to all social media Services.
2.3.1 Best Practices. Please note that content created and submitted via social media channels can be viewed by others through third party services and websites. It is advisable to be cautious when giving out your information online, especially your private address, location, credit card number, or telephone number. You can control who sees your content by adjusting your account settings with your third party social media provider, e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn. Please keep in mind that any content that was posted before you changed your privacy settings is deemed to have been displayed publicly and therefore may be available in search or through third party sites.

2.3.2 Rights to User Information. If you choose to gather information from users of your social media pages, e.g. Facebook, you agree that all such user information will be subject to your privacy policy and agree to prominently post such policy or a link to it at the information entry point. If you do not have a privacy policy, you agree to include and abide by the following statement instead: “Your contact information will be used only to provide the information you requested. We will not sell your information to third parties.”

2.3.3 Upon termination or cancellation of the Services the custom social media tabs we create for you will be deleted and are not recoverable. Your basic business social media account, e.g. Facebook and any of your User Content posted there remains intact. We disclaim all liability in connection with the loss of any such content due to your subscription cancellation or termination. If you cancel the Service before the end of your current month, your cancelation will remain in effect until the end of the current subscription period and you will not be charged again.

3. Third Party Information and Links to Other Websites

You understand our Services rely on the availability of third party sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. to provide the necessary, software, networking, storage and related technology required to provide you with any of our social media services. These third parties may include advertisements or other links on your social media page and may make material changes to their websites or services that could significantly impact your own social media page. Moreover we do not offer technical support to assist your use of third party vendors. We are therefore not responsible for, make no representations or warranties for and disclaim all liability associated with your use of our Services relative to any such third party including, without limitation, data failures, network compromises or the speed or availability of the third party service.
NOTE: Service availability often depends on the availability of third-party service providers over which we have no control. Credit is not provided for periods where the Service is unavailable or reduced due to the unavailability or interruption of those third-party services.
