USE OF AND ACCESS TO OUR SERVICES IS SUBJECT TO THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, YOU MAY NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICES. IF YOU’RE AGREEING TO THESE TERMS ON BEHALF OF AN ORGANIZATION, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU ARE AUTHORIZED TO AGREE TO THESE TERMS ON THAT ORGANIZATION’S BEHALF AND BIND THEM TO THESE TERMS (IN WHICH CASE, REFERENCES TO “YOU” AND “YOUR” INCLUDE THAT ORGANIZATION).

OUR HEADQUARTERS FOR NOTICES: 137 VARICK STREET, 3RD FLOOR, NY, NY 10013
By using anything offered by Clarifai, you automatically agree to this Agreement. You also accept any updated version of this Agreement by continuing to use the Services.
You must be at least 13 years old to use the Services. Do not use the Services if it would mean breaking the law. If you sign up for an account on the Services, you are responsible for all activity on your account. Be mindful about protecting your account password, and let us know immediately if you think there are any issues.
You promise that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with Clarifai. Any use of or access to the Services by anyone under the age of 13 is strictly prohibited and in violation of these Terms. You may only use the Services in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national and international laws, rules and regulations. We can’t and won’t be responsible for your using the Services in a way that breaks the law. The Services are not available to any users previously removed from the Services by Clarifai.
You may be required to sign up for an account and select a password and user name. We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of users. You may never use another user’s account without permission. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. You must notify Clarifai immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. Clarifai will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account.
By connecting to Clarifai through a third party service (“Third Party Service”), you give us permission to access and use your information from that service as permitted by that service, and to store your log-in credentials for that service. Clarifai has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, accuracy, privacy policies, or practices of or opinions expressed in any third party websites or by any third party that you interact with through the Services. In addition, Clarifai will not and cannot monitor, verify, censor or edit the content of any third party site or service. By using the Services, you release and hold us harmless from any and all liability arising from your use of any third party website or service.
If you store User Content in your own personal Clarifai account, in a manner that is not viewable or accessible by any other user except you, or use aspects of the Services, such as Clarifai’s APIs, that require Clarifai to access and search your databases of content for specific images or videos (collectively, “Personal User Content”)(for more information, see Security at Clarifai), you grant Clarifai the license above, as well as a license to use, access, display, perform, and distribute your Personal User Content for the sole purpose of providing you the Services, improving our Services and making that Personal User Content accessible to you. For the avoidance of doubt, your Personal User Content will not be viewable, editable, or shareable by anyone other than your community facilitators or by Clarifai. For further clarity, any User Content you provide to Clarifai through Clarifai’s API shall be Personal User Content by default, unless you affirmatively elect to share such User Content with other users.
If you share User Content in a manner that only certain specified users can view (for example, a private message to one or more other users) (a “Limited Audience User Content”), then you grant Clarifai the licenses above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute your Limited Audience User Content for the sole purpose of making that Limited Audience User Content accessible to such other specified users, and providing the Services necessary to do so. Also, you grant such other specified users a license to access that Limited Audience User Content, and to use and exercise all rights in it, as permitted by the functionality of the Service.
If you share User Content publicly on the Services and/or in a manner that more than just you or certain specified users can view, or if you provide us (in a direct email or otherwise) with any feedback, models, concepts, suggestions, improvements, enhancements, and/or feature requests relating to the Services (each of the foregoing, “Public User Content”), then you grant Clarifai the licenses above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute your Public User Content for the purpose of making that Public User Content accessible to all Clarifai users and providing the Services necessary to do so, as well as all other rights necessary to use and exercise all rights in that Public User Content in connection with the Services and/or otherwise in connection with Clarifai’s business for any purpose. Also, you grant all other users of the Services a license to access that Public User Content, and to use and exercise all rights in it, as permitted by the functionality of the Service.
You agree that the licenses you grant are royalty-free, perpetual, sublicenseable, irrevocable, and worldwide, provided that when you delete your Clarifai account, we will stop displaying your User Content (other than Public User Content, which may remain fully available) to other users (if applicable), but you understand and agree that your User Content may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent that they were copied or stored by other users. Further, data storage is not guaranteed by us and you agree that we will not have any liability whatsoever for any damage, liabilities, losses, or any other consequences that you may incur relating to the loss or deletion of User Content.
Subject to these Terms, we both grant each other the right to use and display each other’s name and logo (the “Licensor Marks”) on our respective websites and in other promotional materials solely in connection with each of our respective activities under these Terms. All of this use of the Licensor Marks will be in accordance with the each other’s applicable usage guidelines and will inure to the benefit of Licensor. The one of us using the other’s Licensor Marks under this subsection will not use, register or take other action with respect to any of the Licensor Marks, except to the extent allowed in advance in writing by the one of us whose Licensor Marks are being used. In using the Licensor Marks under this subsection, the one of us using the other’s Licensor Marks will always use the then-current Licensor Marks and will not add to, delete from or modify any of Licensor Marks. The one of us using the other’s Licensor Marks will not, at any time, misrepresent the relationship between us. The one using the other’s Licensor Marks will not present itself as an affiliate or other legal agent of the one of us whose Licensor Marks are being used. The rights to use and display each other’s Licensor Marks under this subjection will end automatically in the event these Terms terminate.
Except for your User Content, the Services and all materials therein or transferred thereby, including, without limitation, software, images, text, graphics, illustrations, logos, patents, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, photographs, audio, videos, and music, and all intellectual property rights related thereto, are the exclusive property of Clarifai and its licensors (the “Clarifai Content”). Except as explicitly provided herein, nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to create a license in or under any such Clarifai Content, and you agree not to sell, license, rent, modify, distribute, copy, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, publish, adapt, edit or create derivative works from any Clarifai Content. Use of the Clarifai Content for any purpose not expressly permitted by this Agreement is strictly prohibited.
You may choose to or we may invite you to submit comments or ideas about the Services, including without limitation about how to improve the Service or our products (“Ideas”). By submitting any Idea, you agree that your disclosure is gratuitous, unsolicited and without restriction and will not place Clarifai under any fiduciary or other obligation, and that we are free to use the Idea without any additional compensation to you, and/or to disclose the Idea on a non-confidential basis or otherwise to anyone. You further acknowledge that, by acceptance of your submission, Clarifai does not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas previously known to Clarifai, or developed by its employees, or obtained from sources other than you.
You may have heard of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”), as it relates to online Services providers, like Clarifai, being asked to remove material that allegedly violates someone’s copyright. We respect others’ intellectual property rights, and we reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing, and to terminate the accounts of repeat alleged infringers; to review our complete Content Takedown and learn how to report potentially infringing content, click here [https://www.clarifai.com/dmca]. To learn more about the DMCA, click here.
We can choose to change, terminate or suspend your use of the Services at any time.
We’re always trying to improve the Services, so they may change over time. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Services. We’ll try to give you notice when we make a material change to the Services that would adversely affect you, but this isn’t always practical. Similarly, we reserve the right to remove any User Content from the Services at any time, for any reason (including, but not limited to, if someone alleges you contributed that User Content in violation of these Terms), in our sole discretion, and without notice. We may also permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to the Services without notice and liability for any reason, including if in our sole determination you violate any provision of this Agreement, or for no reason. Upon termination for any reason or no reason, you continue to be bound by this Agreement.
Both you and Clarifai acknowledge that the Terms are concluded between you and Clarifai only, and not with Apple or Google, and that neither Apple nor Google is responsible for the SDKs. The SDKs are licensed to you on a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferrable, non-sublicensable basis, solely to be used in connection with the Services subject to all the terms and conditions of these Terms as they are applicable to the Services. Both you and Clarifai acknowledge and agree that, in your use of the SDKs, you will comply with any applicable third party terms of agreement which may affect or be affected by such use.
Please see our pricing. If you are using the Services pursuant to the free pricing plan, you are responsible for monitoring your own usage and when your usage changes into a paid plan. If you wish to continue using such Services, you must pay all applicable fees for such Services. Note that if you elect to receive text messages through the Services, data and message rates may apply. Any and all such charges, fees or costs are your sole responsibility. You should consult with your wireless carrier to determine what rates, charges, fees or costs may apply to your use of the Services.
You can choose to delete your account or stop use of the Services at any time, but note that parts of this Agreement still apply to you even after you stop using the Services.
Account termination may result in destruction of any User Content associated with your account, so keep that in mind before you decide to terminate your account. We will try to provide advance notice to you prior to our terminating your account so that you are able to retrieve any important User Content you may have stored in your account (to the extent allowed by law and these Terms), but we may not do so if we determine it would be impractical, illegal, not in the interest of someone’s safety or security, or otherwise harmful to the rights or property of Clarifai.
Provisions that, by their nature, should survive termination of these Terms shall survive termination. By way of example, all of the following will survive termination: any obligation you have to pay us or indemnify us, any limitations on our liability, any terms regarding ownership or intellectual property rights, and terms regarding disputes between us.
The Services are controlled and operated from facilities in the United States. Clarifai makes no representations that the Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Services from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable United States and local laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations. You may not use the Services if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Services are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in the United States.
The Services are provided “as is.” You are solely responsible for how you choose to use the Services or what actions you take as a result of your use of the Services.
No Warranty. THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. USE OF THE SERVICE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, CLARIFAI, ITS SUBSIDIARIES, ITS AFFILIATES, AND ITS LICENSORS DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE CONTENT IS ACCURATE, RELIABLE OR CORRECT; THAT THE SERVICE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS; THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE AVAILABLE AT ANY PARTICULAR TIME OR LOCATION, UNINTERRUPTED OR SECURE; THAT ANY DEFECTS OR ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED; OR THAT THE SERVICE IS FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. ANY CONTENT DOWNLOADED OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF THE SERVICE IS DOWNLOADED AT YOUR OWN RISK AND YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM OR MOBILE DEVICE OR LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM SUCH DOWNLOAD OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF CERTAIN IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Our legal liability to you is limited. Please understand that we cannot run our business without it.
Limitation of Liability. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL CLARIFAI, ITS AFFILIATES, AGENTS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, THAT RESULT FROM THE USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THIS SERVICE. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL CLARIFAI BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE, LOSS OR INJURY RESULTING FROM HACKING, TAMPERING OR OTHER UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR USE OF THE SERVICE OR YOUR ACCOUNT OR THE INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, CLARIFAI ASSUMES NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY (I) ERRORS, MISTAKES, OR INACCURACIES OF CONTENT; (II) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SERVICE; (III) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SECURE SERVERS AND/OR ANY AND ALL PERSONAL INFORMATION STORED THEREIN; (IV) ANY INTERRUPTION OR CESSATION OF TRANSMISSION TO OR FROM THE SERVICE; (V) ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, OR THE LIKE THAT MAY BE TRANSMITTED TO OR THROUGH OUR SERVICE BY ANY THIRD PARTY; (VI) ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN ANY CONTENT OR FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE INCURRED AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF ANY CONTENT POSTED, EMAILED, TRANSMITTED, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE; AND/OR (VII) USER CONTENT OR THE DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE, OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF ANY THIRD PARTY. IN NO EVENT SHALL CLARIFAI, ITS AFFILIATES, AGENTS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, SUPPLIERS, OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY CLAIMS, PROCEEDINGS, LIABILITIES, OBLIGATIONS, DAMAGES, LOSSES OR COSTS IN AN AMOUNT EXCEEDING THE AMOUNT YOU PAID TO CLARIFAI HEREUNDER OR $100.00, WHICHEVER IS GREATER. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SECTION APPLIES WHETHER THE ALLEGED LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER BASIS, EVEN IF CLARIFAI HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
We hope this never comes up, but just in case it does, you agree to reimburse us for any loss we suffer that is tied to your use or misuse of the Services, violation of this Agreement, or infringement of any third party’s right.
Indemnity. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Clarifai and its subsidiaries, agents, licensors, managers, and other affiliated companies, and their employees, contractors, agents, officers and directors, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Services, including any data or content transmitted or received by you; (ii) your violation of any term of this Agreement, including without limitation your breach of any of the representations and warranties above; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation any right of privacy or Intellectual Property Rights; (iv) your violation of any applicable law, rule or regulation; (v) any claim for damages that arise as a result of any of your User Content or any that is submitted via your account; or (vi) any other party’s access and use of the Services with your unique username, password or other appropriate security code.
We truly hope that we never have to enter into litigation with our users and we imagine that most people feel the same way. If it gets to that point, this is what happens.
Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of New York, without respect to its conflict of laws principles.
Arbitration Agreement. Please read the following ARBITRATION AGREEMENT carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Clarifai and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us. Both you and Clarifai acknowledge and agree that for the purposes of any dispute arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms, Clarifai’s officers, directors, employees and independent contractors (“Personnel”) are third party beneficiaries of these Terms, and that upon your acceptance of these Terms, Personnel will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against you as the third party beneficiary hereof.
(a) Arbitration Rules; Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. Any dispute arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms shall be finally settled by binding arbitration in New York, New York. The arbitration will proceed in the English language, in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”) then in effect, by one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and commercial contract disputes, who shall be selected from the appropriate list of JAMS arbitrators in accordance with such Rules. Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing obligation to arbitrate disputes, each party shall have the right to pursue injunctive or other equitable relief at any time, from any court of competent jurisdiction.
(b) Costs of Arbitration. The JAMS rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. Clarifai will pay all arbitration fees for claims less than $75,000. Clarifai will not seek its attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
(c) Small Claims Court. Furthermore, either you or Clarifai may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in New York, New York or any United States county where you live or work.
(d) Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND CLARIFAI WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR JURY. You and Clarifai are instead choosing to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In any litigation between you and Clarifai over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, YOU AND CLARIFAI WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, and elect instead to have the dispute be resolved by a judge.
(e) Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS. CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration; instead all claims and disputes will be resolved in a court as set forth in (g) below.
(f) Opt-out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Section by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to our headquarters located in NY, NY postmarked within 30 days of first accepting these Terms. You must include (1) your name and residence address; (2) the email address and/or telephone number associated with your account; and (3) a clear statement that you want to opt out of these Terms’ arbitration agreement.
(g) Exclusive Venue. If you send the opt-out notice in (f), and/or in any circumstances where the foregoing arbitration agreement permits either you or Clarifai to litigate any dispute arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms in court, then the foregoing arbitration agreement will not apply to either party and both you and Clarifai agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the state or federal courts located in, respectively, New York, New York, or the Southern District of New York.
Here are some other miscellaneous terms that apply to our contract.
Miscellaneous. The failure of either you or us to exercise any right herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms shall otherwise remain fully enforceable. You may not assign, delegate or transfer these Terms or your obligations or rights and licenses granted hereunder, or your Clarifai account, in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without Clarifai’s prior written consent. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void. We may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms and our rights and obligations without consent. We agree that these Terms are the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding between you and Clarifai, and that it supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of these Terms.
