WIXAL TERMS OF SERVICE
Last updated: June 1, 2017
Welcome to Wixal!
Wixal provides services for the creation, among other products, of custom websites and audiovisual presentations for the marketing of real property listings.
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) cover your use of and access to the websites, photographs, videos, audiovisual works, and other products, services, applications, tools and features (collectively, the “Services”) provided by Jum Mum, Inc., d/b/a Wixal (together with its officers, directors, employees, agents, subsidiaries and affiliates, “Wixal,” “us,” “our” and “we”).
Please read these Terms carefully before using our Services. By accessing and using our Services, you explicitly agree to comply with and be bound by these Terms. If you are using the Services for an organization, you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of that organization, and represent and warrant that you can do so.
1. Your Account
In order for Wixal to provide you with Services, you must provide Wixal with certain personal, business and payment information about yourself and/or your organization. You represent and warrant that: (a) all required information you submit is truthful and accurate, and (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such information. You are responsible for notifying Wixal of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use of any personal or financial information, or any other breach of security that may involve the information provided for any Services. Wixal cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.
2. Your Content
To provide you with Services, Wixal needs certain licenses from you to display, reproduce, modify and store any photographs, video, audio, text, data or other content (“User Content”) you provide to Wixal. For example, Wixal needs the right to publicly display the User Content to allow it to display the User Content on the computer monitor of any party who is not the copyright holder. Wixal needs the right to reproduce the User Content so that it can be incorporated and hosted on a website. Wixal needs the right to create derivative works and to modify the User Content, for example, when editing photographs or video, or when adding voiceovers to User Content.
By submitting User Content to Wixal, you hereby grant Wixal a worldwide, nonexclusive, revocable, royalty-free, fully paid, sublicensable and transferable license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute and transmit the User Content (1) for the purpose of providing you, and those with whom you have shared your presentations (including the public), with Wixal’s Services; and (2) in connection with promotion and marketing of Wixal’s Services, including, without limitation, allowing third parties to search or index the User Content, in connection with e-mail and other promotions, product demonstrations, and the like. This license ends within a commercially reasonable time after you request that Wixal remove or delete your User Content, or when it is removed or deleted at the discretion of Wixal, except (1) to the extent that your User Content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it; and (2) that Wixal retains a license to maintain one backup copy of your User Content indefinitely.
You represent and warrant that you are the owner of all User Content and have all legal right and authority to grant Wixal the licenses set forth above. You further represent and warrant that with respect to any User Content, all necessary licenses, permissions, releases and consents (including, without limitation, copyright and trademark licenses, audio rights, or privacy/publicity releases for User Content depicting people, products, businesses, or other content) have been obtained by you. In addition, you represent and warrant that no User Content infringes the intellectual property rights, moral rights, or other property rights of any third party or violates any applicable law. Wixal does not pre-screen User Content, but reserves the right to remove or delete User Content that violates these Terms.
3. Wixal’s Intellectual Property
Excluding any User Content that you may provide, you acknowledge that all materials on Wixal’s website and Services, including our branding, trade dress, trade names, logos, design, text, search results, graphics, images, pictures, page headers, custom graphics, icons, scripts, sound files and other files, and the selection and arrangement and compilation of information thereof (collectively “Materials”), are proprietary property of Wixal, and are protected by U.S. and international intellectual property laws, including copyright and trademark laws. Our Materials cannot be copied, imitated or used, in whole or in part, without our prior written permission. You may not use any meta tags or any other “hidden text” utilizing “Wixal” or any other name, trademark or product name of Wixal without our permission. Neither these Terms (nor your access to Wixal’s website or other audiovisual works created or modified by Wixal) transfers to you or any third party any rights, title or interest in or to such intellectual property rights. Wixal reserves all rights not granted in these Terms. There are no implied licenses granted under these Terms.
4. Digital Millennium Copyright Act Compliance
If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any content used by Wixal infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by providing our Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C. 512(c)(3) for further detail):
A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material;
Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address;
A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
You may direct copyright infringement notifications to: Wixal Copyright Agent, Jum Mum, Inc., 1684 San Miguel Drive, Walnut Creek, California 94596, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, phone: (925) 683-1642. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this section and under the applicable statute, your DMCA notice may not be valid.
If you believe that your content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the material in your content, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
Your physical or electronic signature;
Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or a misidentification of the content; and
Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in San Francisco, California, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, Wixal may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Wixal’s sole discretion.
5. Your Sites and Your End Users

Wixal shall not be liable for, and shall not provide you with any legal advice concerning, Your Sites or your End Users.
Because we do not control User Content, you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for any of your content, whether provided by you or by others. We make no guarantees regarding the accuracy, currency, suitability, or quality of any User Content. Your interactions with End Users and other third parties are solely between you and such parties. You agree that Wixal will not be responsible for any loss or damage incurred as the result of any such interactions. If there is a dispute between you and any End User or other third party, we are under no obligation to become involved.

Wixal’s Services are integrated with various third-party services, applications and sites (collectively, “Third Party Services”) that may make available to you their content, products and services, such as data storage or video hosting. We are providing or allowing access to these Third-Party Services to you only as a convenience, and their use does not imply affiliation, endorsement, or adoption by us of any Third-Party Services or any information contained therein.

7. Rules for Real Estate Professionals
If you are a real estate professional, you agree that you will not use any information about End Users that is transferred to you during your use of Wixal’s Services (e.g., contact information sent to you when an End User contacts you through Your Sites or listing page) for any reason except to provide those users with real estate services. You further agree never to use such information for any illegal or harmful purpose.
You hereby release and forever discharge Wixal (and our officers, employees, agents, successors, and assigns) from, and hereby waive and relinquish, each and every past, present and future dispute, claim, controversy, demand, right, obligation, liability, action and cause of action of every kind and nature (including personal injuries, death, and property damage), that has arisen or arises directly or indirectly out of, or that relates directly or indirectly to, the Services (including any interactions with, or act or omission of, End Users, third parties or any Third-Party Services).
