Share3D Terms of Service

Last Modified: August 26, 2013

These terms of service (the “Terms”) govern your access to and use of the Share3D websites and services (the “Services”), so please read them carefully before using the Services. The Services are provided by QuadriSpace Corporation (“we” or “our”). By using the Services you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you are using the Services on behalf of an organization, you agree to these Terms on behalf of that organization and promise that you have the authority to bind that organization to these Terms. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that organization.

You may use the Services only in compliance with these Terms. You may use the Services only if you have the power to form a contract with QuadriSpace Corporation according to these Terms and are not barred under any applicable laws from doing so. The Services may continue to change over time as we refine and add more features. We may stop, suspend, or modify the Services at any time without prior notice or liability to you. We may also remove any content from our Services at our discretion.

Your Content & Your Privacy

By using our Services, you may provide us with information, files, and data that you submit to Share3D (together, “Content”). You retain full ownership of your Content. We do not claim any ownership to any of it. These Terms do not grant us any rights to your Content or intellectual property, except for the limited rights that are needed to provide the Services, as explained below. When you use the commenting system portion of the Service, a screenshot of the 3D scene being viewed will automatically be uploaded to the Service. To the extent you have ownership rights in these screenshots, they will be considered your Content.

You give us permission to use, copy, distribute, perform, and display your Content solely to provide the Services, including permission to host your files, and share them at your direction. This permission also includes offering Service features visible to you, for example, 3D models, user comments, image thumbnails, and parts list previews. It also includes technical administration of our Services, for example, backing up your Content to keep it safe. This permission also extends to trusted third parties we work with to provide the Services, for example, Amazon, which provides our storage space. To be clear, aside from the rare exceptions we identify in our Privacy Policy, no matter how the Services change, we will not share your Content with unauthorized third parties for any purpose, unless you direct us to. How we collect and use your information generally is explained in our Privacy Policy.

You are solely responsible for your conduct, the content of your files and folders, and your communications with others while using the Services. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the rights or permission needed to comply with these Terms.

We may choose to review public content for compliance with our community guidelines, but we have no obligation to monitor any content associated with the Services. We are not responsible for the accuracy, completeness, appropriateness, or legality of files, user posts, or any other information you access using the Services.

Sharing Your Content

The Services provide features that allow you to share your Content with others or to make it public. There are many things that other users may do with your Content (for example, copy it, modify it, re-share it). Please consider carefully what Content you choose to share or make public. We have no responsibility for the activity of others.

Your Responsibilities

Files and other content available via the Services may be protected by intellectual property rights of others. You may not copy, upload, download, or share files unless you have the right to do so. You, not us, will be fully responsible and liable for the files you copy, share, upload, download or otherwise access while using the Services. You may not upload spyware or any other malicious software to the Service.

You, and not us, are responsible for maintaining and protecting all of your Content uploaded to the Service. We will not be liable for any loss or corruption of your Content, or for any costs or expenses associated with backing up or restoring any of your Content.

If your contact information, or other information related to your account, changes, you must notify us promptly and keep your information current. The Services are not intended for use by those under 13 years of age. By agreeing to these Terms, you are representing to us that you are over 13.

Account Security

You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the Services and you agree not to disclose your password to any third party. You are responsible for any activity using your account, whether or not you authorized that activity. You should immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account. It is your responsibility to use a secure encrypted connection to communicate with the Services if you wish to protect your transmission of Content to Share3D.

Multiple-User Accounts

Certain Share3D accounts may include the ability for multiple users to access Content of a single account. In these accounts, one or more users will be designated as administrators of the account with special administrative privileges (“Administrator”). All other users with access to the account will be considered “members” with more limited privileges.

When joining a multiple-user account, you may join with a new account, or associate an existing personal account with the multiple-user account. Once your personal account becomes associated with a multiple-user account, your account will be subject to an Administrator’s control. Once associated, you may not be able to disassociate your account from the multiple-user account.

You must use the Services in compliance with any employment obligations and the Administrator’s terms and policies. Your account Administrator may have the ability to access, disclose, restrict, or remove information associated with your account. Administrators may also have the ability to monitor, restrict, or terminate access your account.

Free Accounts

You may use the Services to view and comment on 3D files and other content shared with your account for free. In some cases, free accounts may allow you to upload a limited quantity of 3D files for trial purposes. We reserve the right to terminate free accounts at any time, with or without notice. If a free account is inactive for ninety (90) days, then our practice is to delete the Content associated with that account without providing additional notice.

Paid Accounts

By converting to a paid account, you can increase your account storage space, number of end users, number of shared users, number of 3D uploads and other features above the amounts available with a free account.

We will automatically charge your credit card monthly or yearly for your paid account, depending upon which option you select. If any fee is not paid in a timely manner, or we are unable to process your payment using the credit card information provided, we may revoke access to your Share3D account and Content and provide notice of overdue balance to the email address associated with the paid account. If you do not bring your Share3D balance current within five (5) days after we provide notification that your account is in arrears, we may delete your Share3D account and Content, or convert your paid account to a free account.

Billing

The fees for your paid account will be billed from the date you create, or convert to, a paid account and on each monthly or yearly anniversary thereafter (or the next business day), unless and until you cancel your paid account. You may click on the link to your “Account” page to see the commencement date for your next renewal period. We will automatically bill your credit card each month or year on the calendar day corresponding to the next commencement date. The amount billed each month or year may vary amounts due to promotional offers, changes in your account, or changes in the amount of applicable sales tax. You authorize us to charge your credit card for such varying amounts. We may also periodically preauthorize your credit card in anticipation of billing account or related charges. All fees and charges are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used billing periods.

If you upgrade your paid account with additional features or users, you will be automatically billed for the upgraded tier of service on a pro-rata basis based on your current billing period. The commencement date for your next renewal period will not change but will be billed at the upgraded tier price.

If you downgrade your paid account or remove paid users, your account will be credited on a pro-rata basis. Any credit will be applied to subsequent renewal invoices. All fees and charges are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used billing periods.

We may change the fees and charges for the Service, or add new fees and charges, from time to time. We will attempt to give you advance notice of these changes by email. If you want to use a different credit card or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, it is your responsibility to update your payment information by accessing the “Account” page on the Site.

Canceling Your Account

Your paid account will continue in effect unless and until you cancel your paid account or we terminate it. If you wish to cancel your paid account, you may do so via the “Account” page on the Site. You may cancel your paid account at anytime, and cancellation will be effective immediately. You must cancel your paid account before it renews each month or year in order to avoid the billing of the next month’s or year’s fees to your credit card. If you cancel your Paid Account, you will not be issued a refund for any previously charged fees.

Software and Updates

Certain uses of our Service require you to download a client-side software package (“Software”). We hereby grant you a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable license to use the Software solely to access the Services. Your license to use the Software is automatically revoked if you violate these Terms. We hereby reserve all rights not expressly granted in these Terms. You must not reverse engineer or decompile the Software, nor attempt to do so, nor assist anyone else to do so. The Services may update the Software on your device automatically when a new version is available.

Application Program Interface

You may access your Share3D account data via an Application Program Interface (API). We may modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, API access for all users with or without notice. Abuse or excessively frequent requests to the API may result in the temporary or permanent suspension of your right to access to the API, as determined by us in our sole discretion. When practical, we will a make a reasonable attempt via email to warn you prior to such suspension.
