1. BASIC TERMS
You are responsible for your use of the Services, for any Content that you post to the Services, and for any consequences thereof. The Content you submit, post, or display publicly will be able to be viewed by other users of the Services and through third party services and websites. You should only provide Content that you are comfortable sharing with others under these Terms.
You may use the Services only if you can form a binding contract with Screenleap and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction. If you are accepting these Terms and using the Services on behalf of a company, organization, government, or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so. You may use the Services only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations.
The Services that Screenleap provides are always evolving and the form and nature of the Services that Screenleap provides may change from time to time without prior notice to you. In addition, Screenleap may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services (or any features within the Services) to you or to users generally and may not be able to provide you with prior notice. Screenleap shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of any Service. We also retain the right to create limits on use and storage at our sole discretion at any time without prior notice to you.
The free version of the Services may include advertisements, which may be targeted to the Content or information on the Services, queries made through the Services, or other information. The types and extent of advertising by Screenleap on the Services are subject to change. In consideration for Screenleap granting you access to and use of the Services, you agree that Screenleap and its third party providers and partners may place such advertising on the Services or in connection with the display of Content or information from the Services whether submitted by you or others.
As a condition to using the Services, you may be required to register with Screenleap and create an account ("Account"). You shall provide Screenleap with accurate, complete, and updated registration information. Failure to do so shall constitute a breach of this Agreement, which may result in immediate termination of your Account. You may not create multiple Accounts for disruptive or abusive purposes, or with overlapping use cases. Mass Account creation may result in suspension of all related Accounts. Accounts that are inactive for more than six months may also be removed without further notice.
If you select a personal screen sharing handle ("Handle") (e.g. www.screenleap.com/My_Name) for your Account, Screenleap reserves the right to reclaim, remove or transfer the Handle at any time, and for any reason. You may not 1) register Handles that infringe on copyrights or trademarks, that are intended to impersonate another person or entity, or that are obscene, vulgar, racist, illegal or hate-driven; 2) engage in Handle squatting; or 3) sell or transfer Handles for gain.
You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the Services and for any activities or actions under your password. We encourage you to use "strong" passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your Account. Screenleap cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above.
Customers may access Screenleap's Services via an API (Application Program Interface). Any use of the API, including use of the API through a third-party product that accesses Screenleap, is bound by the Terms of this Agreement.
If you wish to make use of the API, you will be required to create a Developer Account ("Developer Account"). You are solely responsible for any and all activities that occur under you Developer Account. You agree to notify Screenleap immediately of any unauthorized use of your Developer Account or any other breach of security.
You are solely responsible for properly cancelling your Developer Account. An email or phone request to cancel your Developer Account is not considered a cancellation. You can cancel your Developer Account at any time by clicking on the "Developer" link from the menu at the top right corner of the screen. The Developer page provides a simple no-questions-asked cancellation link.
You expressly understand and agree that Screenleap shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible-losses (even if Screenleap has been advised of the the possibility of such damages), resulting from your use of the API or third-party products that access data via the API.
Abuse or excessively frequent requests to Screenleap via the API may result in the temporary or permanent suspension of your account's access to the API. Screenleap, in its sole discretion, will determine abuse or excessive usage of the API. Screenleap will make a reasonable attempt via email to warn the account owner prior to suspension.
Screenleap reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, your access to the API (or any part thereof) with or without notice.
The Contents of Screenleap's free screen sharing service are not secure. Screen shares are not conducted over a secure connection, are not encrypted, and are not password protected. Any person possessing a screen share link or a personal Handle may view the corresponding screen share. Paid accounts offer the ability to conduct screen shares over a secure, encrypted connection.
Screenleap's screen sharing service does not enable remote control of computer systems.
