Terms of Service


Last updated October 22, 2007


This Terms of Service ("Terms of Service") govern your use or access of the website made available on www.PeopleSearch.net (the "Site").

  1. Acceptance Triggered By Use

    BY USING OR ACCESSING THE SITE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS TERMS OF SERVICE. This Terms of Service sets forth the entire agreement between you and People Search Ventures, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("People Search"). People Search is alternately referred to as "we" or "our" in this Terms of Service. This contract is triggered by access of the Site and by your viewing of any content, clicking on links, or otherwise using the Site – i.e., your access to and use of the Site is expressly conditioned on your compliance with this Terms of Service and agreement hereto.

    Please note that this Terms of Service limits our liability and we do not provide warranties with respect to the Site. This Terms of Service also limits your remedies. Such warranty disclaimers and limitations are covered in Sections 5 and 6, and we urge you to read them carefully.

  2. License; Limited Access to the Site

    People Search grants you a limited non-exclusive, revocable license to access the Site for strictly internal and personal purposes. People Search owns and retains, to the fullest extent of the law, all intellectual property and rights in the Site including, but not limited to, copyrighted material, trademarks, patented processes, trade secrets, and other proprietary information. You will not reproduce (except for in your browser cache), distribute, transmit, transfer, offer, copy, publish, display, modify, or sell, assign, or sublicense any portion of the Site, its code, or any proprietary information on the Site, or any intellectual property or other proprietary rights in any of the foregoing. You will not reverse engineer, reverse assemble, or otherwise attempt to discover any source code or proprietary information, or obtain unauthorized access to the Site.

  3. Termination

    You acknowledge that we may terminate, limit, cancel, block or suspend your access to the Site at any time and for any reason, with or without cause and with or without notice. Without limiting the foregoing, we may simply take the Site off-line or restrict access to it.

  4. Third Party Links or Content

    You may be able to access third party websites or services via the Site, including when you enter information on the Site (such as when you conduct a search). People Search does not endorse any such third party websites or services and you use all such sites or services at your own risk.

  5. NO WARRANTIES

    We provide the Site "as-is," with all faults and as available. We give no express warranties, guarantees, or conditions. To the extent permitted by law, we disclaim any implied warranties including those of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, workmanlike effort, and non-infringement and including those arising by usage of trade, course of dealing, or course of performance. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we do not warrant that the Site, or any content or links thereon will be accurate, error-free, virus-free, or uninterrupted or that it will meet your requirements. You may have additional consumer rights under your local laws that this Terms of Service cannot change.

  6. LIABILITY LIMITATION; YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY

    People Search's aggregate liability to you for any and all claims related to the Site or your use of the Site is limited to ($100.00). People Search will not be liable to you or any third parties for any indirect, consequential, lost profits, special, or incidental damages resulting from your access to or use of – or inability to access or use (including due to modification, suspension, blocking, discontinuance, cancellation, or termination of the Service or any part thereof) – the Site or content, whether based on breach of contract, breach of warranty, tort (including negligence), or any other legal theory. These limitations apply to any matter related to: the Site or its content; third party websites, programs or conduct; viruses or other disabling features; incompatibility between the Site and other services, software, or hardware; and any delay or failure in initiating, conducting, or completing any transmission or transaction in connection with the Site in an accurate or timely manner. These limitations also apply even if this remedy does not fully compensate you for any losses, or fails its essential purpose; or if we knew or should have known about the possibility of the damages.

    Some states, provinces and countries do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.

  7. Privacy

    People Search recognizes the value of your privacy. Please refer to People Search's privacy policy to review how People Search handles your personal identifiable information. Such Privacy Policy is incorporated herein by reference.

  8. Indemnity

    You agree to indemnify and hold People Search and its affiliates, officers, agents or other partners, and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of (i) your use of the Site, and (ii) your violation or infringement of any third party rights, or injury caused by you to any third party, in connection with your use of the Site.
