To protect your FlytBase Account, keep your personal information and password (“Credentials”) confidential. You are responsible for the activity that happens on or through your FlytBase Account. Try not to reuse your FlytBase Account password on third-party applications.

The Sites may contain or be accompanied by software code provided by third parties (“Third Party Software”) that is subject to separate license terms (the “Third Party Terms”), and not any license contained in these Terms. Your use of the Third Party Software in conjunction with the Sites in a manner consistent with the Terms is permitted. However, you may have broader rights under the applicable Third Party Terms and nothing in these Terms is intended to impose further restrictions on your use of the Third Party Software.

User Content License
To provide our Sites, we do require a license to your User Content, so that we can store your data on our servers, process it and transmit it to you: when you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Sites, you hereby grant to FlytBase (and those we work with) a non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, store, reproduce, process, modify, publish, transmit, display, and distribute your User Content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating and improving our Sites, and to develop new products and services. This license continues even if you stop using our Sites.
Why do we need these rights? The following situations are a few examples of where we would need these rights:
- In order to receive your uploaded images, we need the right to store and transmit the data.
- We need the rights to store, transmit, process, modify the User Content in order to turn your data into different forms of maps and models.
- If you would like to see the resulting maps/models and share them with people you have selected using FlytBase, we need the rights to transmit, display and distribute your User Content.
- To test, modify, enhance and improve the Sites, and/or for diagnostic purposes, whether requested by you or not.
FlytBase will maintain commercially reasonable security measures to protect User Content in its possession or control, or in the possession or control of its personnel, from unauthorized access, use, copying or disclosure.
If you choose to share materials, solutions and/or ideas with others using the Sites, you agree to irrevocably waive (and cause to be waived) any claims and assertions of moral rights or attribution with respect to your User Content.
In the absence of a written agreement with FlytBase to the contrary, you agree that you will not submit to FlytBase any information or ideas that you consider to be confidential or proprietary.

Our Warranties and Disclaimers
We provide our Sites using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care and we hope that you will enjoy using them. But there are certain things that we don’t promise about our Sites.
OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS OR ADDITIONAL TERMS, NEITHER FLYTBASE NOR ITS SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS MAKE ANY SPECIFIC PROMISES ABOUT THE SITES. FOR EXAMPLE, WE DON’T MAKE ANY COMMITMENTS ABOUT THE CONTENT WITHIN THE SITES, THE SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS OF THE SITES, OR THEIR RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR NEEDS. WE PROVIDE THE SITES “AS IS”.
SOME JURISDICTIONS PROVIDE FOR CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIKE THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXCLUDE ALL WARRANTIES.
Limitation of Liability
WHEN PERMITTED BY LAW, FLYTBASE, AND FLYTBASE’S SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, FINANCIAL LOSSES OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES.

IN ALL CASES, FLYTBASE, AND ITS SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT IS NOT REASONABLY FORESEEABLE.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY CONTAINED HEREIN, OUR LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT (FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION), WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO FIFTY US DOLLARS ($50). MULTIPLE CLAIMS SHALL NOT EXPAND THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION.
You hereby release us, our officers, employees, agents and successors from claims, demands, any and all losses, damages, rights, claims, and actions of any kind including personal injuries, death, and property damage that is either directly or indirectly related to or arises from any interactions with or conduct of other Website users or Third-Party Ads and Websites. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU HEREBY WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH STATES: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”

These Terms provide that all disputes between you and FlytBase will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION. You agree to give up your right to go to court to assert or defend your rights under this contract, except for matters that may be taken to small claims court. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator and not a judge or jury, and your claims cannot be brought as a class action.
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may provide the application of the law of another jurisdiction. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within the State of California for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.

This Agreement, and your rights and obligations herein, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated, or otherwise transferred by you without FlytBase’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. The terms of this Agreement shall be binding upon assignees
About these Terms
We have full right to modify these Terms or any additional terms that apply to the Sites, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our Sites. You should look at the Terms regularly.
These Terms control the relationship between FlytBase and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights. If there is a conflict between these Terms and any additional terms, the additional terms will control for that conflict.
If you do not comply with these Terms, and we don’t take action right away, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future).
If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
