  1. Greetings
  • Welcome to our blog, here are Hitorishibai’s terms of use. We have tried to keep things as short and straightforward as possible. These terms will inform you of:
    • Rules for using our services
    • What you can do with our content (stuff like sharing and caring, linking and virtually ‘high-fiving,’ that and what not)
    • What we can do with content you post (such as comments, photos, and links); and
    • Your rights and responsibilities (legal for important).

  1. When Does This Stuff Go Into Effect?
  • We encourage you to read the terms before using our services.
    • Whenever you use our services you agree to these terms; sort of like driving, you agree to local traffic laws when you take to the road (unless this is the far dystopian future of Mad Max).
    • By visiting our lovely site, you also agree to stick to our Privacy and Cookies policy
    • House rules for comments and creations. Read those too.
    • If you don’t stick to all these terms then we can suspend or terminate your use of services and your account.

  1. Services and content
  • When we say services, we are talking about anything that is offered by Hitorishibai; this can include, but not limited to:
    • website (of course)
    • podcasts
    • RSS feeds
    • Apps
  • When we say content, you say yeah! Content…content. Okay, just checking to see if you are reading. Seriously folks, content, is anything that is available through said services. Content may include, but not limited to:
    • text
    • audio
    • video
    • images
    • contest

  1. Terms That Are Not Our Own
  • Basically when you use other people’s (or company’s) stuff
    • When you use other services or products, like an app or RSS reader, that company will have terms for using their stuff.
    • Some services, like when we have you stop, collaborate and listen (just checking on ya’) for a contest or collaborative effort with another company, there might be additional or special terms, we will keep you posted if that is the case.

  1. Terms For Using Our Stuff
    • Just when you thought you were done, we have a few rules to keep us all out of t-r-o-u-b-l-e. These rules apply solely to our services and content.
      • Don’t mess with Texas, nor our services. What does it mean? No one knows what it means, but its provocative (Chazz Micheal Michaels, Blades of Glory). But, just in case that was too vague, reference the following:
        • Hacking or disrupting our efforts to provide a wonderful Internet experience via our website.
        • Evading our content security technology (software that stops people copying our content).
        • Accessing content from outside the US that might violate your home country’s laws and regulations, not that we talk about anything scandalous besides a ticket to the Maldives and the price of kombucha, but you can never be too safe so adhere to what will keep you out of lock-up
      • Don’t be a jerk, be mean or just a really bad human to other people on our site. This means:
        • We need all the street cred we can get so don’t damage our reputation by associating us with politics, sexism or racism, for instance
        • Our lawyer is on retainer, but the check might not clear so don’t get us sued – by slander
        • Don’t harass other visitors or our staff, neighbors, or the pizza delivery guy who always brings extra napkins.
      • Don’t post or upload anything that violates common sense and can be seen as offensive, obscene or violent.
      • If you disagree with someone, respond as passionately as you would like (within reason), but do not attack the person or go into a long tirade that just consumes precious 1’s and 0’s.
      • Don’t pretend to be Hitorishibai or our subsidiaries; this includes, but limited to:
        • Pretending to be Dr. Frakenstien and recreating our services and content or copying us
        • Please do not use our trademarks or logos without our permission
        • Don’t use or mentioning our content without our permission
        • We net over $50 last year, so making money from our hard work (content or services) is no Bueno (not good).

  1. Using Hitorishibai Content
    • If you really feel the need to grab something from our website, such as text, video, photos, logo, brand, or more, you will need permission first. All of our content is protected by copyright.
    • That said, everything we publish may not always be our personal content to have, hold and cuddle late at night while we binge watch episodes of Designated Survivor.
      • There is a good chance that you will run into content that come’s from other people or companies. For example, we might feature a hotel or a product and use their press photo and some of their press content. Even more likely is when we redistribute press releases; we will likely include highlights from said press release with a link to the original content.
      • This can also include audio, images, video and text from contributors or content used with permission.

  1. Links To Other Web Sites
  • Just like you, we enjoy a wide spectrum of websites, their content, and services. And sometimes, our service may contain links to third-party websites or services that are not owned or controlled by Hitorishibai.
    • Hitorishibai has no control over and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party websites or services. You further acknowledge and agree that Hitorishibai shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such websites or services.
    • We do not endorse the sites we link to. We know, it sounds counter-intuitive, but trust us on this one.
    • We strongly advise you to read the terms and conditions and privacy policies of any third-party websites or services that you visit.
      • One example would be when you visit our Instagram, Facebook or Twitter social media accounts.
      • External sites usually have their own terms of use and privacy policy.

  1. Termination
  • We may terminate or suspend access to our Service immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation if you breach the Terms.
  • All provisions of the Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.

  1. Governing Law
  • These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Florida, United States, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
  • Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Service, and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have between us regarding the Service.

  1. Changes
  • We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material, we will try to provide at least 30 days notice before any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.
  • By continuing to access or use our Service after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Service.
