Welcome to Topspot! It’s great to have you as part of our community and we hope you have as much fun as we do in being a part of it! These Terms of Service are our agreement with you when you use Topspot’s website, online and mobile application services, and any software applications or services made available by Topspot (the “Services”). By using the Services, you agree to these Terms of Service. These Terms of Service affect your legal rights and obligations, so if you do not agree to be bound by these Terms of Service, do not access or use the Services.
Given the breadth of our Services, we sometimes need additional terms and conditions for specific Services. Those additional terms and conditions, which will be available with the relevant Services, also become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services.

You need to be at least 13 years old or younger with parental consent to create a Topspot account or use the Services. By using the Services, you also must be able to form a binding contract with Topspot, not be a person disallowed from using the Services under the laws of the United States or any other applicable jurisdiction, and must comply with these Terms of Service and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules, and regulations.
If you are using the Services on behalf of a business, or some other entity or organization, you agree that you are authorized to grant all licenses set forth in these Terms of Service and to agree to these Terms of Service on behalf of the business, entity or organization.
Topspot grants you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable, non-exclusive, revocable, and non-sublicensable license to access and use the Services. This license is for the sole purpose of letting you use the Services in a way that these Terms of Service allow. You may automatically download and install upgrades, updates, or other new features of any software we provide. You may also adjust these automatic downloads through your device’s settings. You may not copy, modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of our Services, nor may you reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code of our Services, unless applicable laws prohibit these restrictions or you have our written permission to do so.
Many of our Services let you create, upload, post, send, receive, and store content. When you do that, you retain whatever ownership rights in that content you had to begin with. But you grant us a license to use that content. How broad that license is depends on which Services you use and the settings you have selected.
For use of the Services, you grant Topspot a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicensable, and transferable license to host, store, use, display, reproduce, modify, adapt, edit, publish, and distribute that content. This license is for the limited purpose of operating, developing, providing, promoting, and improving the Services and researching and developing new ones. In addition, you also grant us a perpetual license to create derivative works from, promote, exhibit, broadcast, syndicate, sublicense, publicly perform, and publicly display content submitted to our Services. To the extent necessary, when you appear in, create, upload, post, or send content, you also grant Topspot and our business partners the unrestricted, worldwide, perpetual right and license to use your name, likeness, and voice. For the avoidance of doubt you will not be entitled to any compensation from Topspot or our business partners if your name, likeness, or voice is conveyed through our Services.
While we’re not required to do so, we may access, monitor, review, edit, block, screen, and delete your content at any time and for any reason, including if we think your content violates these Terms of Service. We may also disqualify, edit, block or remove any entry or other content from contests on Topspot where we identify or suspect tampering or attempts to tamper with the entry process or the operation, fairness or integrity of any contest, or acts with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other user has occurred. Entries and prize claims may also be subject to verification, cancellation or disqualification. Despite this, you remain responsible for the content you create, upload, post, send, or store through the Services. Unless officially created by Topspot, contests on Topspot are in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Topspot. By creating or entering into contests, users fully release Topspot from any liability and no correspondence will be entered into.
The Services may contain sponsored content or advertisements. In consideration for topspot letting you access and use the Services, you agree that we, our affiliates, and our third-party partners may place sponsored content and advertisements on the Services. Because the Services contain content that you and other users provide us, sponsored content and advertisements may sometimes appear near your content. topspot has no obligation to identify or demark sponsored content or advertisements as such.
If you volunteer feedback or suggestions, you agree that we can use this information as we choose and without compensating you.
These Terms of Service do not grant you any right to use branding, logos, designs, photographs, videos, or any other materials in or from our Services.

The Services, any tools provided by the Services and any content on the Services cannot be used for any commercial purposes without our consent.

Much of the content on our Services is produced by users, publishers, and other third parties. Whether that content is posted publicly or privately, the content is the sole responsibility of the person or organization that posted it. Although Topspot reserves the right to access, monitor, review, edit, block, screen or delete any content that violates these Terms of Service, we do not access, review or monitor all of it. So we cannot and do not take responsibility for any content that others provide through the Services. Through these Terms of Service, we make clear that we do not want the Services put to bad uses. But because we do not review all content, we cannot guarantee that content on the Services will always conform to our Terms of Service.
