Social Media Engagement Terms of Use

SimplexGrinnell LP ("SimplexGrinnell", “we”, “us”, or “our”) uses a variety of third-party social networking websites, communications services and media channels including, but not limited to, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ and YouTube (collectively, “Social Media”) in order to communicate and interact with our internal and external audiences who may want to share their passion for SimplexGrinnell or discuss our products, services and promotions. By submitting comments, visuals, videos, posts, media or any other forms of feedback on our Social Media channels (collectively, “User Content”), you agree to comply with these Social Media Engagement Terms of Use (“Terms of Use”) and expressly grant SimplexGrinnell the right to publish your User Content on such Social Media channels.

 

While we are excited to hear from you and always welcome and encourage your constructive feedback and discussion, it is important to note that User Content is not necessarily representative of the thoughts or opinions of SimplexGrinnell, any of its affiliated companies, or any of their employees. We make no warranties, whether express or implied, regarding the accuracy, completeness, usefulness or reliability of any User Content on our Social Media channels. This information solely represents the views and opinions of the individual submitting the User Content, and we assume no liability for any information published, posted, uploaded, distributed, disseminated or otherwise transmitted by third parties via Social Media channels. Any reliance you place on such information is strictly at your own risk, and you are fully responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your posting or submission of User Content.

 

We may also include links to other third-party websites on our Social Media channels. Please note that these links do not represent an endorsement by SimplexGrinnell of such websites, and we are not responsible for any third-party websites that we do not host. We encourage you to review the privacy policies and terms of use of any third-party websites to determine how they operate and what your responsibilities are in connection with accessing those websites. Any forms of recognition, rating or communication offered by third-party Social Media channels (e.g., “Friending” or “Tweeting”) do not constitute SimplexGrinnell’s endorsement, approval or acceptance of any person, organization, entity, product, service, policy or belief. Such ratings and communications shall not create a business, political or personal relationship with us, nor shall they be construed as an offer for employment or any other contract, whether binding or non-binding, between you and SimplexGrinnell or its affiliated entities. Our Social Media channels are intended to be communities where you can leave relevant comments, photos, videos and links, and we encourage you to do so. However, we do not condone any form of harassment, written attacks, insults, vulgarity or indecency in any User Content, whether in writing or in the transmission of images. To this end, you expressly agree that you will not submit User Content that:

 

  • defames, abuses, harasses, threatens or otherwise violates the legal rights (including the rights of privacy and publicity) of others;
  • is obscene, indecent, misleading, objectionable or unlawful;
  • contains software or other material protected by intellectual property laws unless you own or control the rights thereto or have obtained all necessary consents;
  • contains viruses, corrupted files or any other software or programs that may damage the operation of another individual’s computer or that is designed to collect information from other users without their consent;
  • intentionally omits any author attributions, legal notices or proprietary designations or labels or that falsifies the origin or sources of software or other materials; or
  • you know, or have reason to believe, cannot be legally distributed via our Social Media channels.

 

We reserve the right, but do not assume the responsibility, to review, delete, edit or otherwise alter all User Content in any manner we see fit, and we will remove any User Content that we deem, in our sole discretion, to be inappropriate or offensive. However, SimplexGrinnell can neither review nor ensure prompt removal of all objectionable User Content posted on or submitted to our Social Media channels. Accordingly, SimplexGrinnell assumes no liability for any action or inaction regarding User Content submitted by third parties. We are not liable or responsible to anyone for the performance or non-performance of any of the above activities. By posting User Content that contains images, photographs, pictures or that may otherwise be graphical in whole or in part (“Images”), you represent that each person depicted in any Image, if any, has provided consent to the distribution, public display and reproduction of any Image. For any User Content you post, upload, submit or request on SimplexGrinnell’s Social Media Channels, you grant SimplexGrinnell a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sub-licensable right to (i) use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, transmit, create derivative works from, distribute, disclose and publicly display and perform your User Content for commercial purposes throughout the world in any media now known or hereafter developed; and (ii) publish the name that you submit in connection with your User Content, in SimplexGrinnell’s sole discretion. You agree that you have no recourse against SimplexGrinnell or any of its affiliated companies for anyone’s infringement, misuse or violation of any right you may have in your User Content, and you irrevocably waive any “moral rights” in your User Content. You also irrevocably agree that SimplexGrinnell can pursue claims against anyone who violates our rights in the User Content. You also further acknowledge that we assume no responsibility for the deletion of, or failure to store or otherwise provide access to User Content submitted by you or others. No compensation will be paid with respect to the use of your User Content as provided in these Terms of Use.

 

Please note that SimplexGrinnell does not endorse or use Social Media channels as a secure means of communication for online business transactions or for transmitting any sensitive information. For example, you should never send us any of the following types of information via our Social Media channels: personal information (e.g., your credit card information), classified information, privileged information or any other private information, including information subject to non-disclosure agreements. You agree that we will not be held responsible for the unauthorized disclosure of any such information if that information was transmitted to us through one of our Social Media channels. In addition to these Terms of Use, our Social Media engagement with you is governed by the policies and/or terms of use or such social media sites and/or services. We encourage you to review these policies to better understand your responsibilities and obligations when you interact with us via our Social Media channels. Your failure to comply with such policies or these Terms of Use may result in the termination of your access to our Social Media channels, in addition to any potential civil or criminal liability.

 

We reserve the right to discontinue the services we provide on our Social Media channels at any time, with or without prior notice.
