Develop, Improve and Update the Service
Goodspring is constantly changing and improving the Service. As part of this continual evolution, we may make modifications or changes (to all or part of the Service) such as adding or removing features and functionalities, offering new digital content or services or discontinuing old ones. We may also need to alter or discontinue the Service, or any part of it, in order to make performance or security improvements, make changes to comply with law, or prevent illegal activities on or abuse of our systems. These changes may affect all users, some users or even an individual user. When the Service requires or includes downloadable software, that software may update automatically on your device once a new version or feature is available, subject to your device settings. If we make material changes that negatively impact your use of the Service, we’ll provide you with reasonable advance notice, except in urgent situations such as preventing abuse, responding to legal requirements, or addressing security and operability issues. We’ll also provide you with an opportunity to export your content from the Service, subject to applicable law and policies.
Your Content and Conduct
Parts of the Service may allow you to upload Content to the Service. You may use your Content to promote your business or artistic enterprise. If you choose to upload Content, you must not submit to the Service any Content that does not comply with this Agreement (including associated policies and usage guidelines) or the law. For example, the Content you submit must not include third-party intellectual property (such as copyrighted material) unless you have permission from that party or are otherwise legally entitled to do so. You are legally responsible for the Content you submit to the Service. We may use automated systems that analyse your Content to help detect infringement and abuse, such as spam, malware, and illegal content.
Rights you Grant
You retain ownership rights in your Content. However, we do require you to grant certain rights to Goodspring and other users of the Service, as described below.
License to Goodpring
By providing Content to the Service, you grant to Goodspring a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, non-sublicensable and non-transferable license to store that Content for the purposes of delivering the Service to you, and to access that Content for the purposes of system administration and operation. Goodspring will never reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works, display or perform the Content without the Content owner’s express written permission.
License to Other Users
You also grant each other user of the Service a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to access your Content through the Service when you have expressly provided such access, and to use that Content, including to reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works, display, and perform it, only as enabled by a feature of the Service (such as sharing of Content items). For clarity, this license does not grant any rights or permissions for a user to make use of your Content independent of the Service.
Duration of License
The licenses granted by you continue for a commercially reasonable period of time after you remove or delete your Content from the Service. You understand and agree, however, that Goodspring may retain for system administration purposes and for a commercially reasonable period of time, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of your Content that have been removed or deleted.
Right to Monetize
Goodspring will never monetise your Content without your express written consent.
Removing Your Content
You may remove your Content from the Service at any time. You also have the option to make a copy of your Content before removing it. You must remove your Content if you no longer have the rights required by these terms.
Removal of Content By Goodspring
If we reasonably believe that any of your Content (1) is in breach of this Agreement or (2) may cause harm to Goodspring, our users, or third parties, we reserve the right to remove or take down that Content in our discretion. We will notify you with the reason for our action unless we reasonably believe that to do so: (a) would breach the law or the direction of a legal enforcement authority or would otherwise risk legal liability for Goodspring or our Affiliates; (b) would compromise an investigation or the integrity or operation of the Service; or (c) would cause harm to any user, other third party, Goodspring or our Affiliates.
We respond to all notices of alleged copyright infringement. Goodspring’s policies provide for the termination, in appropriate circumstances, of repeat infringers’ access to the Service.
Account Suspension & Termination
Terminations by You
You may stop using the Service, or any part thereof, at any time. You also have the option to download a copy of your data first.
Terminations and Suspensions by Goodspring
Goodspring reserves the right to suspend or terminate your access to all or part of the Service if (a) you materially or repeatedly breach this Agreement; (b) we are required to do so to comply with a legal requirement or a court order; or (c) we believe there has been conduct that creates (or could create) liability or harm to any user, other third party, Goodspring or our Affiliates.
Notice for Termination or Suspension
We will notify you with the reason for termination or suspension by Goodspring unless we reasonably believe that to do so: (a) would violate the law or the direction of a legal enforcement authority; (b) would compromise an investigation; (c) would compromise the integrity, operation or security of the Service; or (d) would cause harm to any user, other third party, Goodspring or our Affiliates.
Effect of Account Suspension or Termination
If your access to the Service is restricted, you may continue using certain aspects of the Service (such as viewing the public website) without an account, and this Agreement will continue to apply to such use. If you believe your that the termination or suspension has been made in error, you can appeal by contacting us.
About Software in the Service
When the Service requires or includes downloadable software, unless that software is governed by additional terms which provide a license, Goodspring gives you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the software provided to you by Goodspring as part of the Service. This license is for the sole purpose of enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Service as provided by Goodspring, in the manner permitted by this Agreement. You are not allowed to copy, modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of the software, or to reverse-engineer or attempt to extract the source code of that software, unless laws prohibit these restrictions or you have Goodspring’s written permission.
Some software used in our Service may be offered under an open source license that we make available to you. There may be provisions in an open source license that expressly override some of these terms, so please be sure to read those licenses.

FOR EXAMPLE, WE DON’T MAKE ANY WARRANTIES ABOUT: (A) THE CONTENT PROVIDED THROUGH THE SERVICE; (B) THE SPECIFIC FEATURES OF THE SERVICE, OR ITS ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR NEEDS; OR (C) THAT ANY CONTENT YOU SUBMIT WILL BE ACCESSIBLE ON THE SERVICE.

Continuation of this Agreement
If your use of the Service ends, the following terms of this Agreement will continue to apply to you: “Other Legal Terms”, “About This Agreement”, and the licenses granted by you will continue as described under “Duration of License”.
If it turns out that a particular term of this Agreement is not enforceable for any reason, this will not affect any other terms.
