Introduction

Contract 

You agree that by clicking “Join Now”, “Join Producers Eye”, “Sign Up” or similar, registering, accessing or using our services (described below), you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with Producers Eye (even if you are using our Services on behalf of a company). If you do not agree to this contract (“Contract” or “User Agreement”), do not click “Join Now” (or similar) and do not access or otherwise use any of our Services. If you wish to terminate this contract, at any time you can do so by closing your account and no longer accessing or using our Services.

When you use our Services you agree to all of these terms. Your use of our Services is also subject to our Cookie Policy and our Privacy Policy, which covers how we collect, use, share, and store your personal information.

Members and Visitors 

When you register and join the Producers Eye Service or become a registered user on SlideShare, you become a Member. If you have chosen not to register for our Services, you may access certain features as a “Visitor.”

Change

Producers Eye is able to modify this Contract, our Privacy Policy and our Cookies Policies and if we make changes to it, we will make sure we let you know first through our service giving you the opportunity to review the changes we have made. If you do not agree with the changes we make, you will be given an option to close your account.

You acknowledge that your continued use of our Services after we publish or send a notice about our changes to this User Agreement means that the collection, use and sharing of your personal data is subject to the updated Terms and Conditions.

Obligations

Service Eligibility

To use the Services, you agree that: you must be the “Minimum Age”. Persons under the age of 16 are not eligible to use our Services.

You will only have one Producers Eye account in each sector, which must be in your real name; and you are not already restricted by Producers Eye from using the Services. Creating an account with false information is a violation of our terms, including accounts registered on behalf of others or persons under the age of 16. 

“Minimum Age” means 16 years old. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for LinkedIn to lawfully provide the Services to you without parental consent (including using of your personal data) then the Minimum Age is such older age.

You agree to: try to choose a strong and secure password; keep your password secure and confidential; not transfer any part of your account and (4) follow the law and our list of Dos and Don’ts which are listed below. You are responsible for anything that happens through your account unless you close it or report misuse.

We strive to maintain a safe and friendly community for our members. The Services shouldn't be used to harm others or their career or business prospects or to air personal grievances and disputes. It is not okay to use the Services to harass, abuse, or send other unwelcome communications to people (e.g., romantic advances, sexually explicit content, junk mail, spam, chain letters, phishing schemes). We do not allow hate speech acts like attacking people because of their race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, political or religious affiliations, or medical or physical condition. Also, hate groups, terrorists, and those who engage in violent crimes are not welcome and not permitted on the Services.
