- Authorized Use
- Replies to Third-Party Reviews and Reply Library
We may reply on third-party sites to a third-party review of your products and/or services (“Third-Party Review”) as part of our Services. If you elect to use this Service, you expressly authorize us to reply to Third-Party Reviews on your behalf and such replies are referred to generally as “Review Replies” (or a “Review Reply” when referring to one reply). Authorization to reply to Third-Party Reviews will authorize us to reply to all Third-Party Reviews per the process below; provided that we cannot guarantee that Review Replies will be successfully submitted or posted by the third-party site hosting the Third-Party Reviews.
A Review Reply that is written and submitted by us and is not part of a library of possible replies that we create and update from time to time for use for all of our clients (such library referred to as our “Reply Library”) is a “Custom Reply.”
For Review Replies that are not Custom Replies, you may select a reply from the Reply Library (“Library Reply”). You may elect to modify the Library Reply (an “Edited Reply”) or craft your own reply that does not use any of a Library Reply (“Own Reply”).
A Review Reply is submitted in response to a Third-Party Review based on the procedures listed above and all such submitted Review Replies are deemed approved by you and submitted on your behalf.
All copyright rights in our Reply Library are our sole property and no rights of any kind in the Reply Library are granted to you except for the limited right to have a Library Reply or an Edited Reply submitted as a Review Reply. You agree not to sell access to, compile summaries of, catalog, distribute or reproduce any portion of the Reply Library nor modify any of the Reply Library except when creating an Edited Reply pursuant to the above. You own all copyright rights in a Custom Reply, the portion of an Edited Reply that you create and an Own Reply. You agree that we may elect to use a Custom Reply, Own Reply, or any portion thereof, and the modified or edited portions of an Edited Reply you create when updating our Reply Library, worldwide and for any purpose whatsoever, without compensation to you, except that we will never update our Reply Library using any content that identifies you or uses your name.
Your use of this Service is at your sole risk and you acknowledge that reactions to Review Replies are not predictable and may vary widely. We do not make any representation or warranty as to the original reviewer’s reaction to Review Replies, or any outcome or result related thereto, nor the response of or action taken by any other party in response to a Review Reply, and you acknowledge that such reactions or actions taken as a result thereof may be adverse to your best interests. Moreover, third-party sites may lock elements of your listing information as a result of submitting Review Replies or remove your listing from that site. You hereby release us from all claims and liability from any and all adverse actions and reactions related to or in any way made in connection with our replies to Third-Party Reviews.
- Third-Party Sites
Our Service will apply to certain third-party sites and the third-party sites may change over time. No third-party site is guaranteed to be reviewed or monitored through our Service. We may provide your information and content to third-party sites (any of your content on a third-party site, whether provided by us or you, is a “Business Listing”) as part of the Services. You expressly authorize us to use your credentials to access your Business Listings on your behalf. Authorization to access your Business Listings will authorize us to submit, edit, delete, change and/or modify, all Business Listings (collectively “Business Listing Changes”) on third-party sites and store such information on our Site; provided that we cannot guarantee that our Business Listing Changes will be successfully submitted or posted by the third-party sites hosting the Business Listings. Furthermore, authorization to access your Business Listings authorizes us to access information about your Business Listings on a third-party site, including data and analysis related thereto, and retrieve and store such information on our Site. We may discuss Business Listing Changes with you before making any such changes, but we are not required to do so. As between you and us, such Business Listing Changes when appearing on a third-party site will be deemed your content. Your use of this Service is at your sole risk and you acknowledge that reactions to our Business Listing Changes are not predictable and may vary widely. We cannot guarantee the consumer reaction to our Business Listing Changes, nor that of any other party or third-party site, and you acknowledge that such reactions or actions taken as a result thereof may be adverse to your best interests. Moreover, third-party sites may limit or prohibit access to elements of your Business Listing as a result of submitting Business Listing Changes through our Service or remove your Business Listing from their site. You hereby release us from all claims and liability from any and all adverse reactions to or actions taken as a result of our Business Listing Changes.
The Service may also involve or provide links to third-party sites or resources and contain third-party advertisements. We have no control over such sites and resources and you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for the availability of such sites or resources, and do not endorse and are not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products, or other materials on or available from such sites or resources.
