Copyright and Limited License

All content published or made accessible through the Services, including but not limited to texts, graphics, photos, designs, videos, software, and data, is the exclusive property of Writers Block or the adequately attributed third party. They are protected against infringement by the U.S. and International Copyright Laws.

Users are granted a limited, non-sublicensable, and non-exclusive license to access and use the Services and the Writers Block Materials. This license is subject to the Terms and does not cover, among other things, the following: downloading, copying, or storing any materials for any purpose other than personal use; using our services and materials for any purpose other than those for which they were designed; reselling or otherwise illegally exploiting the content.

Without our and the other owners’ permission, you are not allowed to use the Services provided by Writers Block in any way not expressly permitted herein. Copyright and trademark laws, communications rules, and legislation might all be broken by such unauthorized usage. Except as explicitly provided above, nothing in the Terms and Conditions of Writers Block will be construed as conferring any license under any intellectual property rights. This permission can be revoked at any time.

Amendments & Changes

It is possible that we may update or change specific provisions of these Terms at any time and for any reason. We will do our best to inform you of at least 30 days’ notice before any significant changes are made. A substantial change shall be defined by us, in our sole discretion.

If you use our Service after the changes go into effect, you agree to be bound by the new terms. Please do not continue using the Service if you do not accept the revised conditions.

Termination

If you violate the Terms, for example, we reserve the right to immediately and without warning or responsibility suspend or cancel your account.

Your permission to use the Service will end the moment your subscription does. Stopping your use of the Service will result in the deletion of your account.

All provisions of the Terms that, by their nature, should survive termination will survive termination, including, but not limited to, provisions regarding ownership, warranty disclaimers, indemnification, and liability limits.

Governing Law

Without giving effect to any conflict of law provisions, these Terms shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with English Law and the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.

Our failure to insist upon strict compliance with any term of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such or any other term. If a court finds that any part of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, the validity or enforceability of the remaining parts shall not be affected. 

These Terms represent the complete and exclusive statement of our agreement about our Service and supersede and replace any earlier agreements we might have had to pertain to our Service.

Takedown Requests

Writersblock.net is in compliance with 17 US Code § 512 and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). As the DMCA and other intellectual property laws require, we will investigate infringement claims and respond accordingly. You may request that content be removed from WritersBlock if you believe it violates your intellectual property rights. We will cooperate with valid takedown requests and reserve the right to delete any user-generated content from the site we determine to be violating.

The following components are necessary for a successful allegation of copyright infringement:

  • Show that you are the rightful representative of the owner of the exclusive right that was allegedly violated.
  • Please provide your contact information so we may reach out to you. A valid email address is also required.
  • To file a claim of infringement against writersblock.net, you must include a thorough description of the copied work and at least one search phrase that yields results for the allegedly infringing content.
  • Statement of the complaining party’s reasonable suspicion that the content is being used in a way that violates the rights of the material’s owner, the agent of the material’s owner, or the law.
  • Under penalty of perjury, the complaining party must affirm that they have the authority to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right allegedly infringed upon and that the information provided in the notice is correct.
  • The signature of the owner or authorized agent of the owner of the exclusive right allegedly infringed upon is required.

Dispute Resolution, Binding Arbitration

Please read these conditions carefully, as they contain provisions you must adhere to resolve certain disputes and claims with Writers Block. Without following the procedures outlined below to opt out of arbitration, they also limit your potential legal remedies. Class actions and representative arbitrations are expressly prohibited under this arbitration agreement. Legal action is also avoided by agreeing to arbitration.

You and Writers Block are the only parties who can legally participate in any dispute arising from or connected to these Terms or our Services. Individual arbitration, as opposed to class actions or other representative forms of litigation, shall be used to resolve any such claim.

You agree to provide written notice of your claim (“Notice”) to Writers Block by email at [email protected] and first seek to resolve the claim informally.

Any party may initiate binding arbitration proceedings if the parties cannot resolve their disagreement within forty-five (45) days after such Notice is received.

Writers Block, the arbitrator, and you shall keep the results of any arbitration proceedings, including any judgments or remedies, secret. This obligation extends to any, and all data gathered, processed, and displayed for this or similar ends. Aside from any provisions to the contrary in law, the arbitrator will be free to transmit relevant norms to ensure secrecy. 

It is mutually agreed upon between you and Writers Block that you will be responsible for covering the costs of any arbitration proceedings you begin.

If you have a dispute with Writers Block, you must file your claim within 12 months of the date the dispute began, or you will forever waive your right to have that dispute heard. When this happens, the right to sue is forever lost.
