Terms of Service and Privacy
Welcome to Rise Display Network!
What's Rise Display Network? A simple digital signage service that let's you easily manage content on as few as 1 display or without limits on 1,000's of displays and you can use it for your clients or for yourself. Doesn't matter to us either way.
If your managing displays for your clients we call you a Network Operator and if your just using it for your own displays we call you a Display User. Network Operators provide Display Users with deployment, creative, content, development, maintenance, support and just about any other service you might need to get the most from your digital signage. If your a Display User and you need these services and you don't have a Network Operator let us know and we will refer you to someone who can help. And if you are someone that adds content or extends the functionality of Rise Display Network (RDN) and you make these enhancements available to all Network Operators and Display Users we call you a Market Provider.
By the way these designations; Display User, Network Operator and Market Provider, are not mutually exclusive, you can easily be a Network Operator that manages clients who are Display Users while managing your own digital signage network as a Display User and on top of all of that you could have created some great additions to RDN that you make available to everyone as a Market Provider.
Wow, what options you have. So, congratulations. By agreeing to the below you are now participating in the coolest online web service for digital signage. Enjoy!
And now to the TOS proper...
By using Rise Display Network's service (the Service) you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions ("Terms") on this page. These Terms apply to anyone who uses the Service; Network Operators, Display Users and Market Providers and to anyone who has figured out any other possible combination of stopping by to interact, contribute, add to or use the Service in some way or other that we just haven't come up with as of yet.
The Terms described here may change from time to time; you can always check in on the most current version at http://www.risedisplaynetwork.com/terms. By your continuing use of the Service, you're agreeing to these Terms.
In order to access the Services you may have to create an account for one or more users. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs within your accounts, and you must keep your account passwords secure. You will be responsible for any activities that take place under your accounts, or that take place on or via any of your displays. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your accounts or any other breach of security, please notify us immediately. It is up to you to maintain the confidentiality of your accounts.
You further agree that you are at least 18 years of age on the date that you registered with the Service. If any information that you provide during registration is not accurate (or if we have reasonable grounds to believe so), then as detailed further below under “Termination,” we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse to grant you further access to the Service.
You understand and agree that as part of the Service, you may receive certain communications from us, such as account creation confirmations, service announcements, administrative messages and any of the opt-in newsletters. You will be able to opt out of most of these communications, but not others (such as those concerning your account, displays, users and other administrative or monitoring matters). We'll promise to keep notes from us at a minimum (we don't like crowded inboxes, either!). If you don’t want to receive ANY messages from us, ever, you will need to cancel your account. Sorry.
And, of course, we promise to never ever ever rent or sell your personal information, and you will never receive email from a third party as a result of your relationship with us, unless we explicitly ask and you explicitly opt in to do so.
You cannot use the Service for any illegal or unauthorized purpose, or to promote or make solicitations for any illegal or unauthorized activity and you cannot interfere with or disrupt the Service, or any servers or networks connected to the Service, or disobey any requirements, procedures, policies or regulations of networks connected to the Service.
You are solely responsible for any data, text, information, links, graphics, photos, profiles, audio and video (“Content”) that you publish on your displays via the Service. You cannot use the Service to distribute, share or solicit Content belonging to third parties without proper authorization from the owner(s) of that Content and this includes corporate logos and trademarks, if any, that may be available with the Service, including displaying Content in breach of a confidentiality or fiduciary obligation you may have.
You must respect the proprietary and intellectual property rights of others (including trademark, copyright and trade secrecy) in creating your digital signage content and you, not us, shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and right to use all Content and we shall not be responsible or liable for the deletion, correction, destruction, damage, loss or failure to store any Content. Upon Termination your right to access or use Content immediately ceases, and we shall have no obligation to maintain or further provide it. Further we do not endorse any Content available through the Service.
We don't own any of the Content that you upload or link to from the Service and as a result that you publish on your displays. We may preserve and store Content, and may also disclose Content if required to do so by law or if we believe in good faith that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process (e.g., subpoenas); (b) enforce these Terms of Service; (c) respond to claims that any Content violates the rights of third parties; or (d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of us, our users and the public.
