This agreement sets the terms of your use of the PurseBop website and services (“PurseBop”) that includes BopTalk. This agreement is meant to encourage a fair and tolerant place for ideas, people, links, and discussion.
This agreement is a legal contract between you and us. You acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by the terms of this agreement. If you do not agree to this agreement, you should not use BopTalk.
Without advance notice and at any time, we may, for violations of this agreement or for any other reason we choose: (1) suspend your access to BopTalk, (2) suspend or terminate Your Profile and Badges, and/or (3) remove any of your User Content from BopTalk.
We reserve the right to monitor BopTalk, and your use of the Service means you agree to such monitoring. At the same time, we do not guarantee we will monitor at all.

You may not use BopTalk to conduct transactions for any illegal goods or services.
To participate on BopTalk, you must create an account that includes a username and password (“Your Account”) and, if you want to be able to reset your password or have us contact you, an email address as well. Of course, you can also browse BopTalk without logging in.
You are solely responsible for the information associated with Your Account and anything that happens related to Your Account.
You may not license, transfer, sell, or assign Your Account without our written approval.
BopTalk contains graphics, text, photographs, images, video, audio, software, code, website compilation, website “look and feel,” and advertisements supplied by us or our licensors, which we call “PurseBop content.” PurseBop content is protected by intellectual property laws including copyright and other proprietary rights of the United States and foreign countries.
We grant you the right to access the PurseBop content in the manner described in this agreement. You may not otherwise make unauthorized commercial use of, reproduce, prepare derivative works, distribute copies, perform, or publicly display PurseBop content, except as permitted by the doctrine of fair use or as authorized in writing by us.

You retain the rights to your copyrighted content or information that you submit to BopTalk (“user content”) except as described below.

If you become aware of user content on BopTalk that infringes your copyright rights, you may submit a properly formatted DMCA request (see 17 U.S.C. § 512) to BopTalk.

Please send the following information:

If we remove your user content in response to a copyright or trademark notice, we will notify you via BopTalk’s private messaging system and offer to provide you with a copy of the notice. If you believe your user content was wrongly removed due to a mistake or misidentification of the material, you can file a counter-notice with us that includes the following:
- Your physical or electronic signature;
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and where the material was located online before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
- A statement by you, under penalty of perjury, that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
- Your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of federal district court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under DMCA 512 subsection (c)(1)(c) or an agent of such person.
Upon receiving a counter-notice we will forward it to the complaining party and tell them we will restore your content within 10 business days. If that party does not notify us that they have filed an action to enjoin your use of that content on BopTalk before that period passes, we will consider restoring your user content to the site.
It is BopTalk’s policy to close the accounts of users we identify as repeat infringers. We apply this policy at our discretion and in appropriate circumstances, such as when a user has repeatedly been charged with infringing the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others.
Please read the following very carefully. Each of the following sections applies to the maximum extent permitted by law. Where jurisdictions do not allow disclaimers of implied warranties or the limitation of liability in contracts, the contents of this section may not apply.
Indemnity: All the things you do and all the information you submit or post to BopTalk remain your responsibility. Indemnity is basically a way of saying that you will not hold us legally liable for any of your user content or actions that infringe the law or the rights of a third party or person in any way.
Specifically, you agree to hold BopTalk, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, and third party service providers harmless from and defend them against any claims, costs, damages, losses, expenses, and any other liabilities, including attorneys’ fees and costs, arising out of or related to your access to or use of BopTalk, your violation of this user agreement, and/or your violation of the rights of any third party or person.
BopTalk is provided “as is” and without warranty of any kind. To the maximum extent permitted by law, we and our affiliates and third party service providers disclaim any and all warranties, express or implied, including (but not limited to) implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement of proprietary rights, or any other warranty, condition, guarantee or representation, whether oral or electronic. You are solely responsible for any damage to your computer or mobile device, loss of use, or loss of your user content. We do not guarantee that BopTalk will always work properly.
Limitation of Liability: We will not be liable for any special, consequential, indirect, incidental, punitive, reliance, or exemplary damages, whether in tort, contract, or any other legal theory, arising out of or in any way connected with this agreement or your use of or attempt to use BopTalk, including (but not limited to) damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, or data. This limitation on liability shall not be affected even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Some states do not allow for the exclusion of implied warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusions may not apply to you. You may have other rights that vary from state to state.
You agree to release us, our affiliates, and third-party service providers, and each associated director, employee, agents, and officers, from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential), of every kind and nature, known and unknown, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected to your use of BopTalk.
We want you to enjoy BopTalk, so if you have an issue or dispute, you agree to raise it and try to resolve it with us informally. You can contact us with feedback and concerns here or by emailing us at [email protected]
Any claim or dispute between you and us arising out of or relating to this user agreement, in whole or in part, shall be governed by the laws of the State of Illinois without respect to its conflict of laws provisions. We agree and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal court located in Cook County, Illinois.
If any provision of this user agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be modified to the extent necessary to render it enforceable without losing its intent. If no such modification is possible, that provision will be severed from the rest of this agreement.
If we do not enforce any right or provision in this user agreement, that is not to be deemed a waiver of our right to do so in the future.
This user agreement is the entire agreement between you and us concerning BopTalk. It supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements between you and us. We may modify this user agreement at any time. If we make changes to this agreement that materially affect your rights, we will provide advance notice and keep this edition available as an archive on the BopTalk website. By continuing to use BopTalk after a change to this agreement, you agree to those changes.
This user agreement is effective as of April 28, 2015.
