Terms of Service
Welcome to Indulgy.com! These Terms of Service (“Terms”) are a binding legal contract between you and
Indulgy Inc. (“Indulgy.com”). They apply to your use of Indulgy.com (“Site”), our application for mobile
devices (“Mobile Application”) and any of our services made available on the Site or via the Mobile
Application (“Services”). If you do not agree to all of these terms, please do not visit the Site or Mobile
Application, or use the Services - if you do, you are necessarily agreeing to these terms. Your “Agreement”
with Indulgy.com also includes any specific additional terms and policies that apply to any specific Services you use.
Special Note on Bots. All automated visitors (eg, crawlers, spiders, scrapers, etc) (“Bots”) are subject to this
Agreement to the same extent as human users. Except for search engines gathering information for publicly accessible
search indices, a Bot may not access the Services until a human responsible for that Bot has reviewed this Agreement.
Failure to do so does not excuse any breach of this Agreement by the Bot.
- The Services
- Indulgy.com is an online and mobile service that allows users to create, view and follow visual collections through the Site and Mobile Application. After you have created an account to become a member of Indulgy.com, you may use the Services to create, view and follow visual collections. In order to create a visual collection, you may upload images from your computer, and/or install and use our "Indulgy.com" browser plugin, by following the instructions provided on the "Add" section of the Site. You can also add images that were collected by other Indulgy.com users to one of your collections by simply clicking the “Collect” button that appears when you hover over an image on the Site. You will also be able to (a) rearrange the presentation order of your collections, (b) drag and drop images between collections, (c) collect one image to multiple collections, (d) collect multiple images from one page, (e) move your images and collections to different services, and (f) move your images and collections from other services to Indulgy.com.
- Please note that your visual collections will be publicly viewable by all visitors to the Site and Mobile Application unless you proactively mark them as private. If you mark a collection as private when it is originally created, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure that (a) the collection will not be included in search results on the Site or Mobile Application, (b) other visitors (except those you invited to view the collection) won't find it as a result of using the search feature of the Site or Mobile Application, and (c) the collection will not be distributed outside the Site or Mobile Application. Also, we will retain it if needed for any legal reason. Be aware, however, just because something is marked "private", we can't guarantee that only the people you invite will see it. Even if you mark something "private", users may be able to find the direct URL for an image through other search mechanisms, then share or link to it outside the Site or Mobile Application. Also, remember: if you share it from the Site or Mobile Application, it's no longer private, even if you marked it "private." If you remove your Content from the Site or Mobile Application, or mark as "private" something that previously had been public, we won't use it outside of the Site or Mobile Application anymore and will hide it from search results on the Site or Mobile Application, but we might still have it stored in backup files or on servers, and we are not responsible for sites on which it was shared before it was marked "private." In order to follow the visual collections of other members, you may search for other visual collections via the Site and Mobile Application and select the option to "Follow" such members.
- We are constantly evolving and improving the Services. We may modify, suspend or discontinue all or some of the Services at any time without notice or liability.
- Please keep in mind that you are solely responsible for your interactions with other users. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and other users. Indulgy.com will have no liability for your interactions with other users, or for any user’s action or inaction. Please help to make Indulgy.com a positive and respectful community.
- Your Account
- You are responsible for everything done through your account, so please do not share your ID and password with anyone you do not want to be accountable for. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. Please notify us right away if you have lost control of your password or you suspect there is unauthorized activity in your account.
- Your account is not meant to be your primary storage facility for any content you want to keep. We reserve the right to delete any Content at any time without notice.
- You may not use or authorize anyone else to use any automated means to access your account, the Services or any Content appearing on the Site or the Mobile Application.
- When you create your Indulgy.com account, you must provide us with accurate and complete information. Please be sure to provide us with up to date contact information so we know how to reach you. We will send you emails from time to time related to your account, our Services and other issues. You will be able to opt out of some kinds of email (eg, marketing email) by following the instructions in the email or by adjusting your email notification preferences in the Settings portion of the Site.
- You agree not to use user names or collection titles that are offensive, obscene or harassing to others, or that infringe upon third party trademarks. We have the right to change your user name and collection title names at any time and for any reason in our sole discretion.
- You may close your account at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Content” means anything that appears on the Site or Mobile Application, or that contributes to other content on
the Site or Mobile Application (eg, a rating that is aggregated with other user ratings), including but not
limited to all text, visual elements (eg, graphics, images, etc), video and data.
- You are solely responsible and bear all liability for and risk from any Content you provide to us, the Site, or the Mobile Application, or that you make available in connection with the Services (collectively, Content you “provide”). Please provide Content thoughtfully, because you may not be able to delete it.
- Indulgy.com values and respects the rights of third party creators and content owners, and expects you to do the same. You represent and warrant that you have all rights and authorizations necessary for the Content you provide and that no Content you provide will infringe, misappropriate or violate any third party rights (including rights of privacy, moral rights or any intellectual property rights) or violate any applicable law or regulation. It is important that you understand that you are in the best position to know if the materials you post are legally allowed. We therefore ask that you please be careful when deciding whether to make Content available on our Services, including whether you can collect or recollect Content in your collections.
- We strongly discourage you from providing any Content that allows other users to identify or locate you.
- Certain kinds of Content are not allowed. You agree not to post, upload, publish, submit, provide access to or transmit any Content that: (a) infringes, misappropriates or violates a third party’s patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, moral rights or other intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy; (b) violates, or encourages any conduct that would violate, any applicable law or regulation or would give rise to civil liability; (c) is fraudulent, false, misleading or deceptive; (d) is defamatory, obscene, pornographic, vulgar or offensive; (e) promotes discrimination, bigotry, racism, hatred, harassment or harm against any individual or group; (f) is violent or threatening or promotes violence or actions that are threatening to any other person; or (g) promotes illegal or harmful activities or substances.
- Indulgy.com will not compensate you in any manner for anything, including your use of the Services and any Content you provide, unless you and Indulgy.com have entered into a separate written agreement that has been signed by both parties.
- We reserve the right but not the obligation to pre-screen, filter and categorize any Content, and to change any URLs that are linked to images that you have collected in your collections. We may also investigate you, your account and any Content you submit. In addition to or instead of terminating or suspending your use of the Services and any other remedies, we may immediately take down any Content or take any other action we think is appropriate to deal with any issue we believe is problematic in our sole discretion. However, while we reserve the right to do these things we do not make any commitment that we will police the Services for problems that have not been reported to us. To report a problem, please see below.

If we do not receive notice within 10 business days that the submitter of the original complaint is seeking a court order to prevent further infringement of the content at issue, we will remove the complaint from your account’s record, and we may replace the content that was removed.
Note: There are legal and financial consequences for fraudulent and/or bad faith submissions.
