LocalStack, a California corporation (the "Company" and/or "LocalStack"), welcomes you. LocalStack. provides its service to you subject to the following Terms of Service ("TOS"). LocalStack. reserves the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of these TOS at any time for any reason. Each time LocalStack exercises such right, you shall be required to affirmatively accept the updated TOS, and if you fail to do so, you will no longer be able to access or use the Service. In addition, when using particular LocalStack owned or operated services, you and LocalStack shall be subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to such services, which may be posted from time to time. All such guidelines or rules (including but not limited to our Spam Policy) are hereby incorporated by reference into the TOS. LocalStack may also offer other services that are governed by different Terms of Service.
LocalStack provides users with access to a rich collection of resources, including various communications tools, forums, search services, personalized content and branded programming through its network of properties which may be accessed through any various medium or device now known or hereafter developed (the "Service"). You also understand and agree that the Service may include advertisements and that these advertisements are necessary for LocalStack to provide the Service. You also understand and agree that the Service may include certain communications from LocalStack, such as service announcements, administrative messages and the LocalStack Newsletter, and that these communications are considered part of LocalStack membership and you will not be able to opt out of receiving them. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new LocalStack properties, shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided "AS-IS" and that LocalStack assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings. You are responsible for obtaining access to the Service, and that access may involve third-party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). You are responsible for those fees, including those fees associated with the display or delivery of advertisements. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service.
In consideration of your use of the Service, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction. You also agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form (the "Registration Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or LocalStack has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, LocalStack has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof). LocalStack is concerned about the safety and privacy of all its users, particularly children. For this reason, parents of children under the age of 13 who wish to allow their children access to the Service must create a LocalStack Account. When you create a LocalStack Account and add your child to the account, you certify that you are at least 18 years old and that you are the legal guardian of the child/children listed on the LocalStack Account. By adding a child to your LocalStack Account, you also give your child permission to access many areas of the Service, including, email, message boards and instant messaging (among others). Please remember that the Service is designed to appeal to a broad audience. Accordingly, as the legal guardian, it is your responsibility to determine whether any of the Service areas and/or Content (as defined below) are appropriate for your child.
You will receive a password and account designation upon completing the registration process. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify LocalStack of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. LocalStack cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section.
You understand that all information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages, tags, or other materials ("Content"), whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, are the sole responsibility of the person from whom such Content originated. This means that you, and not LocalStack, are entirely responsible for all Content that you upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available via the Service. LocalStack does not control the Content posted via the Service and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. You understand that by using the Service, you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable. Under no circumstances will LocalStack be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any Content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available via the Service.
You agree to not use the Service to:
You acknowledge that LocalStack may or may not pre-screen Content, but that LocalStack and its designees shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to pre-screen, refuse, or move any Content that is available via the Service. Without limiting the foregoing, LocalStack and its designees shall have the right to remove any Content that violates the TOS or is otherwise objectionable. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Content. In this regard, you acknowledge that you may not rely on any Content created by LocalStack or submitted to LocalStack, including without limitation information in LocalStack Message Boards and in all other parts of the Service.
You acknowledge, consent and agree that LocalStack may access, preserve and disclose your account information and Content if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process; (b) enforce the TOS; (c) respond to claims that any Content violates the rights of third parties; (d) respond to your requests for customer service; or (e) protect the rights, property or personal safety of LocalStack, its users and the public. You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Service, including your 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 that use of these materials is subject to usage rules set by LocalStack and/or 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.
When you register with LocalStack, you acknowledge that in using LocalStack services to send electronic communications (including but not limited to email, search queries, sending messages to LocalStack Blogs, Groups, Q&A, or Small Talk uploading photos and files to LocalStack Reviews, and other Internet activities), you will be causing communications to be sent through LocalStack's computer networks, portions of which are located in California and other locations in the United States and portions of which are located abroad. As a result, and also as a result of LocalStack's network architecture and business practices and the nature of electronic communications, even communications that seem to be intrastate in nature can result in the transmission of interstate communications regardless of where you are physically located at the time of transmission. Accordingly, by agreeing to this Terms of Service, you acknowledge that use of the service results in interstate data transmissions.
Recognizing the global nature of the Internet, you agree to comply with all local rules regarding online conduct and acceptable Content. Specifically, you agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country in which you reside.
LocalStack does not claim ownership of Content you submit or make available for inclusion on the Service.

"Publicly accessible" areas of the Service are those areas of the LocalStack network of properties that are intended by LocalStack to be available to the general public. By way of example, publicly accessible areas of the Service would include LocalStack Message Boards and portions of LocalStack Groups, Photos and Briefcase that are open to both members and visitors. However, publicly accessible areas of the Service would not include portions of LocalStack Groups that are limited to members, LocalStack services intended for private communication such as LocalStack Mail or LocalStack Messenger, or areas off of the LocalStack network of properties such as portions of World Wide Web sites that are accessible via hypertext or other links but are not hosted or served by LocalStack.
You agree to indemnify and hold LocalStack and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, employees, partners and licensors harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of Content you submit, post, transmit or otherwise make available through the Service, your use of the Service, your connection to the Service, your violation of the TOS, or your violation of any rights of another.

LocalStack respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. LocalStack may, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who may be repeat infringers.
If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please provide LocalStack's Copyright Agent the following information:
FAILURE TO INCLUDE ALL OF THE ABOVE INFORMATION, ESPECIALLY SPECIFIC INFORMATION ABOUT WHERE INFRINGING CONTENT MAY BE FOUND, WILL RESULT IN A DELAY IN THE PROCESSING OF YOUR DMCA NOTIFICATION AND MAY RESULT IN YOUR HAVING TO REPEAT SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE PROCESS.
Notice And Takedown. If we receive proper notification of claimed copyright infringement, we will respond expeditiously by removing, or disabling access to, the material that is claimed to be infringing, as described below, or to be the subject of infringing activity. We will also comply with the appropriate provisions of the DMCA in the event a counter-notification is received, as described below.
We may, at our discretion, deny access to Service by, or disable and/or terminate the accounts of, users who may be infringers.
Copyright Counter-Notices. If content you posted on the Service was removed for copyright or intellectual property infringement, and you would like to dispute that removal, the process for counter-notifications, which is governed by Section 512(g) of the DMCA, is as follows:
Elements of Counter-Notification. To expedite our ability to process your counter- notification, please use the following format (including section numbers):
After we receive your counter-notification, we will forward it to the party who submitted the original claim of copyright infringement. Please note that when we forward the counter-notification, it includes any of your Identifying Information set forth in the counter-notification. By submitting a counter-notification, you consent to having such Identifying Information revealed in this way. We will not forward the counter-notification to any party other than the original claimant.
After we send out the counter-notification, the claimant must then notify us within ten (10) days that he or she has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Service. If we receive such notification, we will be unable to restore the items. If we do not receive such notification, we may, but are not obligated to, reinstate the disputed item(s).
(e) Foreign Counter-Notification: If you reside outside of the United States, please understand that filing a counter-notice may lead to legal proceedings between you and the complaining party to determine ownership. Be aware that there may be adverse legal consequences in your country and/or the United States of America if you make a false or bad faith allegation by using this process. Please also be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of access privileges for users who are infringers. So, if you are not sure whether content you posted on Service is being infringed, or are otherwise unsure of whether to file a counter-notification using these procedures, we strongly recommend you first contact a lawyer knowledgeable in the laws of the United States and the State of California. If you do wish to file a counter-notice, you should follow the process set forth above under the heading "Elements of Counter-Notification."
