Terms of Service
The Top Ten list is intended to be a fun forum for athletes and their fans to share the custom cards they have made. We aim to support athletes and to relate their stories of sporting achievement in a family friendly environment.
We do not host any card images on our servers, but auto-search the internet for cards that have been shared in public forums. Using a proprietary algorithm, we then link to the most popular images. If you have made a card you would like entered in the Top Ten contest, send us an email with two web links (one to the front of the card, and one to the back) to where the images are hosted (i.e. Imgur, Twitter, Flickr, Picasa).
STUFF THAT ISN’T COOL
If someone else might own the copyright to an image, don’t send us a link to it. Don’t submit links to cards with gore, obscenity, profanity, advertising, solicitations, “hate speech” (i.e. demeaning race, gender, age, religious or sexual orientation, etc.), or material that is threatening, harassing, defamatory, or that encourages illegality.
If you see anything on our site or in the Top Ten List that shouldn’t be there because it violates our policies or for any other reason, please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We love to see your fan cards and to provide a forum for others to enjoy them as well. Get creative and start submitting your best entries — your work just might crack the Top Ten chart!
By sharing links to a card you made or by making a comment, you represent and warrant to us that (1) doing so does not violate or infringe anyone else’s rights; and (2) you created the file or other content to which you are providing the link, or otherwise have sufficient intellectual property rights to share the material consistent with these terms.
With regard to any file or content to which you provide a link, you grant Starr Cards a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable worldwide license (with sublicense and assignment rights) to use, to display online and in any present or future media, to create derivative works of, to allow downloads of, and/or distribute any such file or content. To the extent that you delete any such file or content from the public portions of our site, the license you grant to Starr Cards pursuant to the preceding sentence will automatically terminate, but will not be revoked with respect to any file or content Starr Cards has already copied and sublicensed or designated for sublicense. Also, of course, any link you provide to a card(s) may be used by the public pursuant to the following paragraph even after you delete it.
By downloading a file or other content from or through the Starr Cards app, you agree that you will not use such file or other content except for personal, non-commercial purposes, and you may not claim any rights to such file or other content, except to the extent otherwise specifically provided in writing.
NOTICES OF CLAIMED COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT
Starr Cards (the company) does not store card images on our servers. We only provide links to view images that are already publicly available on the web (i.e. Twitter, Imgur, Flickr, Picasa). However, to err on the side of protecting copyright holders, we will remove links to infringing material when contacted by a content owner. We do not have the ability to remove the content from the original host server, but will remove the ability to view the material through our app.
If you see anything in our app that you believe infringes your copyright rights, you may notify our Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) agent by sending the following information:
1) Identification of the copyrighted work or works claimed to have been infringed.
2) Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing and that is to be removed, including the card name and/or other information to enable us to locate the material.
3) A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by you as copyright owner, or by your agent, or by law.
4) A statement that the information in your notice is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are the owner (or authorized to act on behalf of the owner) of the exclusive copyright right that is allegedly being infringed.
5) Your physical or electronic signature, or of someone authorized to act on your behalf.
6) Instructions on how we may contact you: preferably email, but also address and phone.
Please send notifications of claimed infringement to our Legal Department
340 S. Lemon Ave. #9460
Walnut, CA 91789
Use the same procedure for any claimed trademark violations or other infringements. If we receive a DMCA notice and remove something to which you provided links anonymously, we will have no way of notifying you, so you will have to contact us if you think that may have happened. Keep in mind that we reserve the right to remove any content at any time whether or not it infringes or violates any of our policies.
