Terms of Service
I run the event showcasing service called Papercut. Papercut’s basic service is free, and you can choose a “pay what you wish” option for advanced features. If you find a user that you believe violates these Terms of Service, please contact me at
Terms of Service:
The following terms and conditions (“Terms”) govern all use of the Papercut website and all content, services, and products available at or through the website. Our Services are offered subject to your acceptance without modification of all of the terms and conditions contained herein and all other operating rules, policies (including, without limitation, Papercut’s
) and procedures that may be published from time to time by me (collectively, the “Agreement”). You agree that we may automatically upgrade our Services, and these Terms will apply to any upgrades.
Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using our Services. By accessing or using any part of our Services, you agree to become bound by the Terms of this Agreement. If you do not agree to all the Terms of this Agreement, then you may not access or use any of our Services. If these Terms are considered an offer by Papercut, acceptance is expressly limited to these Terms.
Our Services are not directed to children. Access to and use of our Services is only for those over the age of 13 (or 16 in the European Union). If you are younger than this, you may not register for or use our Services. Any person who registers as a user or provides their personal information to our Services represents that they are 13 years of age or older (16 years or older in the European Union).
Use of our Services requires a Papercut account. You agree to provide us with complete and accurate information when you register for an account. You will be solely responsible and liable for any activity that occurs under your username. You are responsible for keeping your password secure.
Your papercut Account and Events. If you create an event page on Papercut, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and event page, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the event page. You must immediately notify Papercut of any unauthorized uses of your event page, your account, or any other breaches of security. Papercut will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.
Responsibility of Contributors. If you showcase an event page, comment on an event page, post material to Papercut, post links on Papercut, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available (any such material, “Content”), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content or your conduct. That is the case regardless of what form the Content takes, which includes, but is not limited to text, photo, video, audio, or code. By using Papercut, you represent and warrant that your Content and conduct do not violate these Terms. By submitting Content to Papercut for inclusion on your website, you grant Papercut a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing, and promoting your event page. If you delete Content, Papercut will use reasonable efforts to remove it from Papercut, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, Papercut has the right (though not the obligation) to, in Papercut’s sole discretion, (i) refuse or remove any content that, in Papercut’s reasonable opinion, violates any Papercut policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of Papercut to any individual or entity for any reason. Papercut will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.
Advertisements. Papercut reserves the right to display advertisements on your event page unless you have purchased a plan that includes the removal of ads.
Attribution. Papercut reserves the right to display attribution text or links in your event page footer or toolbar, attributing Papercut or the theme creator, for example.
2. Responsibility of Visitors.
Papercut has not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, posted to our Services, and cannot therefore be responsible for that material’s content, use or effects. By operating our Services, Papercut does not represent or imply that it endorses the material there posted, or that it believes such material to be accurate, useful, or non-harmful. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. Our Services may contain content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, and other errors. Our Services may also contain material that violates the privacy or publicity rights, or infringes the intellectual property and other proprietary rights, of third parties, or the downloading, copying or use of which is subject to additional terms and conditions, stated or unstated. Papercut disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from the use by visitors of our Services, or from any downloading by those visitors of content there posted.
3. Fees, Payment, and Renewal.
Fees. Some of our Services are offered for a fee, while other Services may be free with optional paid upgrades, such as PLUS features (“Paid Services”). By using a Paid Service, you agree to pay the minimum specified fees, which we’ll bill or charge you at the point you choose to upgrade your event page.
Payment. If your payment fails or Paid Services are otherwise not paid for on time, we may immediately cancel or revoke your access to the Paid Services. If you contact your bank or credit card company to decline or reverse the charge of fees for Paid Services, we may revoke your access to our Services in general.
Refunds. While you may cancel a Paid Service at any time, refunds are issued in our sole discretion.
Fee Changes. We may change our fees at any time. When applicable, we may give you advance notice of the fee changes. If you don’t agree with the fee changes, you can choose not to upgrade to a Paid Service.
4. Content Posted on Other Websites.
We have not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, made available through the websites and webpages to which Papercut links, and that link to Papercut. Papercut does not have any control over those non-Papercut websites, and is not responsible for their contents or their use. By linking to a non-Papercut website, Papercut does not represent or imply that it endorses such website. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. Papercut disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from your use of non-Papercut websites and webpages.
5. Copyright Infringement and DMCA Policy.
As Papercut asks others to respect its intellectual property rights, it respects the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that material located on or linked to by Papercut violates your copyright, you are encouraged to notify Papercut. Papercut will respond to all such notices, including as required or appropriate by removing the infringing material or disabling all links to the infringing material. Papercut will terminate a visitor’s access to and use of the website if, under appropriate circumstances, the visitor is determined to be a repeat infringer of the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of Papercut or others. In the case of such termination, Papercut will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid to Papercut.
6. Intellectual Property.
This Agreement does not transfer from Papercut to you any Papercut or third party intellectual property, and all right, title, and interest in and to such property will remain (as between the parties) solely with Papercut. Papercut, the Papercut logo, and all other trademarks, service marks, graphics and logos used in connection with Papercut or our Services, are trademarks or registered trademarks of Papercut or Papercut’s licensors. Other trademarks, service marks, graphics and logos used in connection with our Services may be the trademarks of other third parties. Your use of our Services grants you no right or license to reproduce or otherwise use any Papercut or third-party trademarks.
We are constantly updating our Services, and that means sometimes we have to change the legal terms under which our Services are offered. If we make changes that are material, we will let you know by posting on one of our blogs, or by sending you an email or other communication before the changes take effect. The notice will designate a reasonable period of time after which the new terms will take effect. If you disagree with our changes, then you should stop using our Services within the designated notice period. Your continued use of our Services will be subject to the new terms. However, any dispute that arose before the changes shall be governed by the Terms (including the binding individual arbitration clause) that were in place when the dispute arose.
Papercut may terminate your access to all or any part of our Services at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. If you wish to terminate this Agreement or your Papercut account (if you have one), you may simply discontinue using our Services. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
9. Disclaimer of Warranties.
Our Services are provided “as is.” Papercut and its suppliers and licensors hereby disclaim all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.

11. Arbitration Agreement.
Except for claims for injunctive or equitable relief or claims regarding intellectual property rights (which may be brought in any competent court without the posting of a bond), any dispute arising under this Agreement shall be finally settled in accordance with the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service, Inc. (“JAMS”) by three arbitrators appointed in accordance with such Rules. The arbitration shall take place in San Francisco, California, in the English language and the arbitral decision may be enforced in any court. The prevailing party in any action or proceeding to enforce this Agreement shall be entitled to costs and attorneys’ fees.

These Terms of Service were originally written in English (US). We may translate these terms into other languages. In the event of a conflict between a translated version of these Terms of Service and the English version, the English version will control.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Papercut and you concerning the subject matter hereof, and they may only be modified by a written amendment signed by an authorized executive of Papercut, or by the posting by Papercut of a revised version.

A waiver by either party of any term or condition of this Agreement or any breach thereof, in any one instance, will not waive such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof. You may assign your rights under this Agreement to any party that consents to, and agrees to be bound by, its terms and conditions; Papercut may assign its rights under this Agreement without condition.
