Welcome to myBridge - Largest professional networking platform

Welcome and thank you for using myBridge! These terms of service ("Terms") cover your use and access to our services, client software, and websites ("Services"). Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use your information while our Terms of Service outlines your responsibilities when using our services. By using our services, you are agreeing to be bound by these Terms, and to review our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service policies. If you are using our services for an organization, group or forum, you are agreeing to these Terms on their behalf.

Use

When you use our services, you provide us with things like your files, content, email messages, contacts, etc ("Your Information"). These terms do not give us any rights to your information except for the limited rights that enable us to offer the services.

We collect information such as your name, email address, phone number, payment info, and physical address to associate with your account. Some of our services let you access your accounts and your information with other service providers.

We need your permission to do things like hosting your information, backing it up, and sharing it when you ask us to. Our services also provide you with features like photo thumbnails, document previews, email organization, easy sorting, editing, sharing, and searching. These and other features may require our systems to access, store, and scan your information. You give us permission to do those things, and this permission extends to our affiliates and trusted third parties we work with.

You also agree to the following:

  • Moderation - You agree we may moderate myBridge access and use at our sole discretion, e.g. by blocking (e.g. IP addresses), filtering, deletion, delay, omission, verification, and/or access/account/license termination. You also agree not to bypass said moderation, that we are not liable for moderating, not moderating, or representations as to moderating, and nothing we say or do waives our right to moderate or not. All site rules are incorporated herein.

Software

Some of our services allow you to download client software ("Software") which may update automatically. So long as you comply with these terms, we give you a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable license to use the software, solely to access the services. To the extent any component of the software may be offered under an open-source license, we will make that license available to you and the provisions of that license may expressly override some of these terms. Unless the following restrictions are prohibited by law, you agree not to reverse engineer or decompile the services, attempt to do so, or assist anyone in doing so.

Our Information

The services are protected by copyright, trademark, and other US and foreign laws. These terms don't grant you any right, title or interest in the services, others' content in the services, myBridge trademarks, logos and other brand features. We welcome feedback, but note that we may use comments or suggestions without any obligation to you.

Copyright

We respect the intellectual property of others and ask that you do too. We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement if they comply with the law, and such notices should be reported through terms@myBridge.me. We reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing and terminate accounts of repeat infringers.

Paid Accounts
  • Billing - You can increase your storage space and add paid features to your account (turning your account into a "Paid Account"). We will automatically bill you from the date you convert to a Paid Account and on each periodic renewal until cancellation. You are responsible for all applicable taxes, and we will charge tax when required to do so.
  • No Refunds - You may cancel your myBridge Paid Account at any time but you will not be issued a refund unless it is legally required.
  • Downgrades - Your Paid Account will remain in effect until it is canceled or terminated under these terms. If you do not pay for your Paid Account on time, we reserve the right to suspend it or reduce your storage to free space levels.
  • Changes - We may change the fees in effect but will give you advance notice of these changes via a message to the email address associated with your account.
Termination

You are free to stop using our services at any time. We also reserve the right to suspend or end the services at any time at our discretion and without notice. For example, we may suspend or terminate your use of the services if you are not complying with these terms, or use the services in a manner that would cause us legal liability, disrupt the services or disrupt others' use of the services. Except for Paid Accounts, we reserve the right to terminate and delete your account if you have not accessed our services for 12 consecutive months. We will of course provide you with notice via the email address associated with your account before we do so.

Guarantee

We strive to provide great services, but there are certain things that we can't guarantee. To the fullest extent permitted by law, myBridge and its affiliates, suppliers and distributors make no warranties, either express or implied, about the services. The services are provided "as is." We also disclaim any warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. Some places do not allow the disclaimers in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.

Limitation of Liability

To the fullest extent permitted by law, except for any liability for myBridge ’s or its affiliates’ fraud, fraudulent misrepresentation, or gross negligence, in no event will myBridge, its affiliates, suppliers or distributors be liable for:

  1. Any indirect, special, incidental, punitive, exemplary or consequential damages, or
  2. Any loss of use, data, business, or profits, regardless of legal theory.

This will be regardless of whether or not myBridge or any of its affiliates has been warned of the possibility of such damages, and even if a remedy fails of its essential purpose.

Additionally, myBridge, its affiliates, suppliers and distributors will not be liable for aggregate liability for all claims relating to the services for more than the greater of $20 or the amounts paid by you to myBridge for the past 12 months of the services in question.

Some places do not allow the types of limitations in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.

Resolving Disputes

Let's Try To Sort Things Out First. We want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against myBridge, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting terms@myBridge.me. We will try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email. If a dispute is not resolved within 15 days of submission, you or myBridge may bring a formal proceeding.

Judicial forum for disputes. You and myBridge agree that any judicial proceeding to resolve claims relating to these terms or the services will be brought in the federal or state courts of Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, subject to the mandatory arbitration provisions below. Both you and myBridge consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts.

Controlling Law

These terms will be governed by North Carolina law except for its conflicts of laws principles unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of any other jurisdiction.

Entire Agreement

These terms constitute the entire agreement between you and myBridge with respect to the subject matter of these terms, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these terms. These terms create no third-party beneficiary rights.

Waiver, Severability & Assignment

MyBridge’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these terms, and any such attempt will be void. myBridge may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in the interest of any business associated with the services.

Modifications

We may revise these terms from time to time, and will always post the most current version on our website. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will notify you (by, for example, sending a message to the email address associated with your account or posting on this page). By continuing to use or access the Services after the revisions come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised terms.
