Seholo shall own exclusively all now known or later discovered rights to the Submission and shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the Submission for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to you or any other person who submitted the Submission.
You agree that use of the Services does not constitute any basis for ownership of the Services and that Seholo owns all legal right, title, and interest in and to the Services and all information, materials, images, software, photographs, functions, text and other content solely provided by or on behalf of Seholo on the Services (collectively, "Seholo Content") is the sole property of Seholo, as between you and Seholo. The Services and all of the Seholo Content, and the selection and arrangement thereof, are protected under the copyright laws and other intellectual property laws of the United States and other countries. We reserve all rights not expressly granted herein in and to the Services and Seholo Content. Unless otherwise noted, the Seholo name and all other trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos or other designations of source displayed on the Services are the property of Seholo, its affiliates or licensors.

Seholo also respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users, account holders and content partners to do the same. The unauthorized reproduction, copying, distribution, modification, public display or public performance of copyrighted works constitutes infringement of the copyright owners' rights. As a condition to your use of Seholo, you agree not to use Seholo to infringe on the intellectual property rights of others in any way. We will terminate the accounts of any Seholo account holders, and block access to Seholo from any users who are repeat infringers of the copyrights, or other intellectual property rights, of others. We reserve the right to take these actions at any time, in our sole discretion, with or without notice, and without any liability to the account holder who is terminated or to the user whose access is blocked.
Seholo has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, accuracy, privacy policies, or practices of or opinions expressed in any third party websites or by any third party that you interact with through the Services.

YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK AND THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND AS AVAILABLE. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SEHOLO DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, STATUTORY OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUALITY, FUNCTIONALITY, AVAILABILITY AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, UNLESS SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LEGALLY INCAPABLE OF EXCLUSION. SEHOLO DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, OR FREE FROM ERROR, THAT ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED IN A TIMELY MANNER, OR THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES AT TIMES OR LOCATIONS OF YOUR CHOOSING.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL SEHOLO BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR (B) ANY AMOUNT, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF THE GREATER OF (I) $100 OR (II) THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO SEHOLO IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THIS APPLICABLE CLAIM, OR (III) ANY MATTER BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL.
You agree to indemnify and hold Seholo and its employees harmless from and against any and all liability, losses, claims, demands, damages, or costs of any kind, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and litigation costs, arising from (a) content you post, transmit, submit, write, email, upload, share, or otherwise make available through our Services, (b) your use of, or reliance on, our Services, (c) your electronic or other connection to the our Services, (d) your violation of the Terms, or (e) your violation of any rights of any other party.
These Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between Seholo and you and completely replace any prior agreements between Seholo and you in relation to the Services.
Seholo updates the Services frequently. You agree that Seholo can make changes, additions, substitutions, and reductions to the Services without notice to you, and that Seholo is not liable to you for these changes.
Seholo reserves the right to stop providing the Services to you at any time for any reason without prior notice. User data will remain stored and available for download, upon request, for a minimum of thirty (30) days after termination of Services.
You agree that the company may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to these Terms, by email, regular mail, or postings on the Services.
The failure of Seholo to exercise or enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not be a waiver of any such right or provision. Any waiver of any provision of these Terms will be effective only if in a writing signed by Seholo.
If any part of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of Seholo, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
These Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of Florida without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Seholo and you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of Manatee, Florida to resolve any legal matter arising from these Terms. Notwithstanding this, Seholo will still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
We make no claims that our Services may be lawfully viewed or accessed outside of the United States. Access to our Services may not be legal by certain people or in certain countries. If you access Seholo from outside of the United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for compliance with the laws of your jurisdiction.
If you have any questions or comments regarding our Terms or the relationship between you and our Services, please send us an email at email@example.com.
We collect and store any information you knowingly submit when interacting with services of Seholo, whether accessed via the web, mobile device, or otherwise. This includes, for example, but is not limited to, the registration process, submitting community service reports, and signing up for volunteer events. The only personally identifiable information we require for registration is your name and email address, used for identification within Seholo and usage of email notification features. The complete types of information we receive may include, but are not limited to, your name, email address, organization affiliation, and volunteer history. We also provide you the ability to submit optional data to our services, such as a profile picture or written feedback. We only store billing and payment information as necessary for us to provide our services to organizations.
We may use non personally identifiable information in order to provide you with certain services at Seholo, such as volunteer event opportunities. Additionally, we may use aggregate analytics data collected automatically in order to better understand the interactions of users with our services. Such data never includes personally identifiable information, and it is only used to improve the user experience and future services provided.
We share your information with other Seholo users only as necessary for your use of our services. We reserve the right to make exceptions to the policies outlined below only to protect the personal safety of Seholo, its users, or any other person.
We may share your personally identifiable information with other users within your affiliated organizations to provide other users with volunteer recommendations and interaction features. At any time, you may select to disable this feature. If sharing with all users in your affiliated organizations is disabled, your personally identifiable information may still be shared with organization administrators at your affiliated organizations as necessary for the organization administrators to view and manage your volunteer history. In order to disable all sharing of personally identifiable information with a given affiliated organization, you must unlink your account from that organization. In doing so, that organization will still be able to view your volunteer history, but such history will include only your name and no other personally identifiable information.
Non personally identifiable information is shared with your affiliated organizations to provide aggregate information regarding volunteer history and trends. Such information is never linked with personally identifiable information, unless such an allowance is permitted by enabling sharing of personal information in your user account as noted above.
As a user, you may choose to opt out of certain sharing features. At any time, you can disable the sharing of personally identifiable information within the user base of your affiliated organizations. Additionally, you have control over what information you choose to enter on our site. For example, you can choose not to upload a profile picture. The only personally identifiable information required for usage of our services is your name and email address. Although you cannot opt out of automatic analytics, such features never collect personally identifiable information. Volunteer notifications are optional. You can opt out of email notifications at any time through your user account settings.
If you are not of legal age (often age 18) in your place of residence, you may only provide personally identifiable information with the consent of your parent or guardian.
If you are under the age of thirteen (13), we are required under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) to obtain expressed consent of your parent or guardian to obtain your personally identifiable information. During registration, you must indicate you are under the age of thirteen (13), and you must indicate that you have explicitly received consent from your parent or guardian to release your personally identifiable information during usage of our services. Optionally, your affiliated organization (school, non-profit organization, etc.) can instead obtain expressed consent from your parent or guardian on your behalf. If you are under the age of thirteen (13) and providing personally identifiable information without the expressed consent of your parent or guardian, you must immediately stop using our services and delete your account. If you are aware of someone under the age of thirteen (13) that has provided personally identifiable information without the expressed consent of his or her parent or guardian, please immediately notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are committed to the security of your personally identifiable information. We follow several industry-standard security practices to protect the data we collect through services of Seholo. Additionally, we use multi-step authorization coding practices to verify user identity and permissions, and our infrastructure is rigorously tested for security holes. No information is ever stored on employee computers or devices, so no information will be compromised in the event of theft. While we use all possible efforts to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. For example, although all user passwords are encrypted and stored in our systems as non-reversible salted hashes, users are still responsible for protecting their accounts against unauthorized access by selecting reasonably complex, secure passwords, not sharing password information, and logging out of their account whenever finished using our services.
