refer to such entity. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree

at any time by visiting this page. The revised terms and conditions will become
effective on the date set forth in our notice, and if you use the Service after

of age (or have reached the age of majority if that is not 18 years of age where
you live). You represent that you are fully able and competent to enter into and
comply with the terms and conditions in this TOS. The Service is not directed to
children under 13, so if you are under 13 years of age, you are not permitted to
access or use the Services. If we become aware that you are using the Service
even though you are under 13, we will deactivate your account.
- Description of Service. The “Service(s)” means (a) Diamond’s
data computation and storage service, as well as the website https://diamond.io (The “Site”), and (b) all
software (including the Software, as defined below), applications, data, text,
images, and other content made available by or on behalf of Diamond through any of
the foregoing, all pursuant to this TOS. The “Service” does not include
Your Data (as defined below) or any software application or service that is provided
by you or a third party, which you use in connection with the Service (each a
“Non-Diamond Product”). Any modifications and new features added to the
Service are also subject to this TOS. Diamond reserves the right to modify or
discontinue the Service or any feature or functionality thereof at any time without
notice to you. All rights, title and interest in and to the Service and its
components (including all intellectual property rights) will remain with and belong
exclusively to Diamond.
- Access and Use of the Service.
- You may access and use the Service only for lawful, authorized purposes and
you shall not misuse the Service in any manner (as determined by Diamond in its
sole discretion). See Section 6 for specific provisions outlining prohibited uses
of the Service. You shall comply with any codes of conduct, policies, storage
limitations, or other notices Diamond provides you or publishes in connection
with the Service from time to time, but if any of those policies materially
change the TOS, we will provide you with reasonable notice as provided in Section
1.C. above. You shall promptly notify Diamond if you learn of a security breach
related to the Service.
- Any software that may be made available by or on behalf of Diamond in
connection with the Service, including Diamond’s mobile and desktop
applications, (“Software”) contains proprietary and confidential
information that is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this TOS, Diamond only grants you a
personal, non-sublicensable and non-exclusive license to use the object code of
any Software solely in connection with the Service. Any rights not expressly
granted herein are reserved.
- You hereby agree to be bound by these terms, and acknowledge that violation
of Diamond’s TOS is grounds for termination of Your Account.
- Your Data Rights and Related Responsibilities.
- “Your Data” means any data and content you upload, post, transmit or
otherwise made available via the Services (which may include data you elect to
import from Non-Diamond Products you use). “Your Data” includes files you upload,
comments you make on files, profile information and anything else you enter or
upload into the Service. Diamond will make commercially reasonable efforts to
ensure that all facilities used to store and process Your Data meet a high
standard for security.
- In order for us to provide the Service to you, we require that you grant us
certain rights with respect to Your Data. For example, we need to be able to
transmit, store and copy Your Data in order to display it to you, to index it so
you are able to search it, to make backups to prevent data loss, and so on. Your
acceptance of this TOS gives us the permission to do so and grants us any such
rights necessary to provide the service to you, only for the purpose of providing
the service (and for no other purpose). This permission includes allowing us to
use third-party service providers in the operation and administration of the
Service and the rights granted to us are extended to these third parties to the
degree necessary in order for the Service to be provided.
- If you send us any feedback or suggestions regarding the Service, you grant
Diamond an unlimited, irrevocable, perpetual, free license to use any such
feedback or suggestions for any purpose without any obligation to you.

all communications with others while using the Services. We may choose to review
Your Data for compliance with our policies and guidelines, but you acknowledge

account, at any time if we believe, in our sole discretion, that you are in
violation of this TOS.
- We are not responsible for the accuracy, appropriateness, or legality of Your
Data or any other data shared with you or that you are otherwise able to access
using the Services. The Services provide features that allow you to share Your
Data and other materials with others or to make it public. Please consider
carefully what you allow to be shared or made public.

via the Service. For example, we may choose to review Public Content posted using the

- Term; Termination.
- This TOS will continue in full effect unless and until your account or this
TOS is terminated as described herein.
- You may terminate your account through an email to email@example.com. Termination of an account
irrevocably deletes your profile and content, including content that you have
shared with others or made public. If other users have copied your shared content
into their own accounts or out of our Service, those copies will not be deleted.
Your data may remain on our Service for up to 30 days after we process your
termination request, and may remain in our backups beyond that time.
- You may always deactivate your account through an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deactivation of an account
disables your access to the content associated with that account but does not
delete your profile or content. Content that you have shared with others will
still be accessible by the people with which you have shared it.
- We reserve the right to terminate the Service at any time for any reason,
with or without notice. Upon any termination of the Service, we will have no
obligation to maintain or provide Your Data; however, we will take commercially
reasonable efforts to give you notice of such termination and provide you access
to download Your Data for a reasonable period of time.

liability to you for any unauthorized access or use of any of Your Data, or any
corruption, deletion, destruction or loss of any of Your Data.
- THE SERVICE AND ALL RELATED COMPONENTS AND INFORMATION ARE PROVIDED ON AN
“AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES
OF ANY KIND, AND DIAMOND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER
EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
