If you are 13 or older, we grant you a limited, revocable, nonexclusive, nonassignable, nonsublicensable license to access idearoam in compliance with the TOS; unlicensed access is unauthorized.  You agree not to license, distribute, make derivative works, display, sell, or "frame" content from idearoam, excluding content you create and sharing with friends/family.  You grant us a perpetual, irrevocable, unlimited, worldwide, fully paid/sublicensable license to use, copy, perform, display, distribute, and make derivative works from content you post.
You agree not to use or provide software (except for general purpose web browsers and email clients, or software expressly licensed by us) or services that interact or interoperate with idearoam, e.g. for downloading, uploading, posting, flagging, emailing, search, or mobile use.  Robots, spiders, scripts, scrapers, crawlers, etc. are prohibited, as are misleading, unsolicited, unlawful, and/or spam postings/email. You agree not to collect users' personal and/or contact information ("PI").
You agree we may moderate idearoam access and use in our sole discretion, e.g. by blocking (e.g. IP addresses), filtering, deletion, delay, omission, verification, and/or access/account/license termination.  You agree (1) not to bypass said moderation, (2) we are not liable for moderating, not moderating, or representations as to moderating, and (3) nothing we say or do waives our right to moderate, or not.  All site rules, e.g., and the privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) are incorporated herein.
If applicable, you authorize us to charge your account for idearoam fees.  Unless noted, fees are in US dollars; tax is additional.  To the extent permitted by law, fees are nonrefundable, even for posts we remove.  We may refuse purchases, which may place a hold on your account.
To the extent permitted by law, (1) we make no promise as to idearoam, its completeness, accuracy, availability, timeliness, propriety, security or reliability; (2) your access and use are at your own risk and peril, and idearoam is provided "AS IS", “WHERE IS”, and "AS AVAILABLE"; (3) we are not liable for any harm resulting from (a) user content; (b) user conduct, e.g. illegal conduct; (c) your idearoam use; or (d) our representations; (4) WE AND OUR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES ("idearoam ENTITIES"), DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES & CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT; (5) idearoam ENTITIES ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS (E.G. OF PROFIT, REVENUE, DATA, OR GOODWILL); (6) IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR TOTAL LIABILITY EXCEED $100 OR WHAT YOU PAID US IN THE PAST YEAR.
You agree (1) any Claim, cause of action or dispute ("Claim") arising out of or related to the TOS or your idearoam use is governed by Georgia ("GA") law regardless of your location or any conflict or choice of law principle; (2) Claims must be resolved exclusively in state or federal court in Atlanta, Fulton County, Georgia (except we may seek injunctive remedy anywhere); (3) to submit to personal jurisdiction of said courts; (4) any Claim must be filed by 1 year after it arose or be forever barred; (5) not to bring or take part in a Class action against idearoam Entities; (6) (except government agencies) to indemnify idearoam Entities for any damage, loss, and expense (e.g. legal fees) arising from Claims related to your idearoam use; (7) you are liable for TOS breaches by affiliates (e.g. marketers) paid by you, directly or indirectly (e.g. through an affiliate network); and (8) to pay us for breaching or inducing others to breach the "USE" section, not as a penalty, but as a reasonable estimate of our damages (actual damages are often hard to calculate): $0.10 per server request, $1 per post, email, flag, or account created, $1 per item of PI collected, and $1000 per software distribution, capped at $1,000 per day.
Users complying with prior written licenses may access idearoam thereby until authorization is terminated.  Otherwise, this is the exclusive and entire agreement between us.  If a TOS term is unenforceable, other terms are unaffected. If TOS translations conflict with the English version, English controls. See our Privacy Policy for how we collect, use and share data. If you feel content infringes your rights see
