Date of Last Revision: June 24th, 2013
Welcome to OurMark! We have created a service that helps you search, track, build a profile and score based-on, and share, good deeds you perform with or through charitable organizations and other non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and companies in general ("OurMark Partners").
This Terms of Service (as it may be amended from time to time, the "Agreement") is a legal agreement between you (and, if applicable, the organization or entity that you represent) ("you" or "your") and OurMark, Inc. ("OurMark", "we", "our" or "us"). OurMark provides the services described above to you through our website located at www.ourmark.com (the "Site"), its applications and its related services (the Site and such applications and services, including any modifications thereto, collectively, the "Service(s)"), subject to the following Agreement. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change or modify portions of this Agreement at any time without further notice.
You should periodically visit this page to review the current Agreement so you are aware of any revision to which you are bound. If we do this, we will post the changes to this Agreement on this page and will indicate at the top of this page the date these terms were last revised. Your continued use of the Service after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Agreement (unless we provide an alternative acceptance date in a notification to you in writing, such as an email). If you do not agree to abide by these or any future Agreement, do not use or access (or continue to use or access) the Service. It is your responsibility to regularly check the Service to determine if there have been changes to this Agreement and to review such changes.
Marks: "marks" are the unit of measure created by us to determine a score for our users; a score which results from multiple qualifying activities that you might be engaged in with or through OurMark partners. Marks will be assigned to you every time a good deed is registered (either by you or one of OurMark partners) in your account. Note that, through the Service, when you add a good deed to your profile with respect to a third party (including an OurMark Partner), we will attempt to send that third party a message notifying it of that good deed, and we will attempt to give the third party an opportunity to endorse it, respond to you with respect to that good deed, edit it to match their records (and then endorse it) or reject it.
Certificates: When you engage in a qualifying activity with an OurMark Partner, you may sometimes receive an electronic certificate that allows you to keep a record of such activities. The Service will permit you to store these certificates for your own records and/or share these certificates with your friends or family, and through social networks, among other things. Each certificate will have a value expressed in "marks".
Impact topics: We have designated as "Impact Topics" those actions by which you can make a positive contribution to other people and/or the environment. Impact Topics are a conceptualization of good deeds exclusive to OurMark, which can change over time (i.e., we may add new Impact Topics and / or discard others).
Mobile Services: The Service includes certain services that are available via a mobile device, including (i) the ability to upload content to the Service via a mobile device, (ii) the ability to browse the Service from a mobile device and (iii) the ability to access certain features through an application downloaded and installed on a mobile device (collectively, the "Mobile Services"). To the extent you access the Service through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier's standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Mobile Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Mobile Services may work with all carriers or devices. By using the Mobile Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding the Service by text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about your usage of the Mobile Services may be communicated to us.
Member Account, Password and Security: You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account, if any, and are fully responsible for any and all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify OurMark of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session when accessing the Service. OurMark will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section.
Activities: OurMark is not the provider of any activities and we are not responsible in any way for any services or activities conducted in connection with OurMark Partners or the Service.
Modifications to Service: OurMark reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that OurMark will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.

Other company, product, and service names and logos used and displayed via the Service may be trademarks or service marks of their respective owners who may or may not be OurMark or be affiliated with or connected to OurMark.

Copyright Complaints: OurMark respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or that your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, you should notify OurMark of your infringement claim in accordance with the procedure set forth below.
OurMark will process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") and other applicable intellectual property laws with respect to any alleged or actual infringement. A notification of claimed copyright infringement should be emailed to OurMark's Copyright Agent at email@example.com (Subject line: "DMCA Takedown Request").
To be effective, the notification must be in writing and contain the following information:
Counter-Notice: If you believe that your User Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content in your User Content, you may send a written counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, OurMark will send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.
Repeat Infringer Policy: In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, OurMark has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at OurMark's sole discretion, users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. OurMark may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Service and/or terminate the memberships of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
OurMark may offer Software applications that are intended to be operated in connection with products made commercially available by Apple Inc. ("Apple"), among other platforms.

OurMark has no control over such sites and resources and OurMark is not responsible for such sites and resources.

As such, OurMark is not liable for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such third party service.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor." If you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine.
