Terms and Conditions of Website Use
These "Terms and Conditions of Website Use" (this "User Agreement") govern your use of the Website, regardless of how you access or use it. By "Website", we mean the Internet domain address within which this User Agreement is posted and all features, applications, content, and downloads that are operated by us and that are available through or interact with it, and/or post links to this User Agreement.
IF YOU'RE UNDER THE AGE OF MAJORITY
(which is 18 years old in most states), then your parent or guardian may be liable for some or all of your activities on the Website. Because of this, and because it's prudent for your parent or guardian to be aware of your activities, including the websites that you visit, you should make your parent or guardian aware that you are using the Website - as this User Agreement and your use of the Website affect their legal rights and obligations.
IF YOU WANT TO USE THIS WEBSITE
Carefully read this User Agreement, as it constitutes a written agreement between you and Stori Clothing and it affects your legal rights and obligations.
Each time you access and/or use the Website (other than to simply read this User Agreement), you agree to be bound by and comply with all of the terms of this User Agreement and any Additional Terms (defined below). Therefore, do not use the Website if you do not agree to all of the terms of this User Agreement and any Additional Terms.
The business realities associated with operating the Website are such that, without the limitations that are set forth in this User Agreement - such as your grants and waivers of rights, the limitations on our liability, your indemnity of us, and our arbitration of certain disputes - Stori Clothing would not make the Website available to you.
Summary of Key Terms
It's important that you read this entire User Agreement; but, here are some of the more significant terms that we want to bring to your attention:
Each time you use the Website, this User Agreement applies to your use. Any updates to it will apply to you; so you should check back frequently for any updates.

Many types of disputes that may arise in connection with your access to and use of the Website may only be resolved by arbitration - which includes your waiver of a right to a jury trial. (See Section 13 below.)
Stori Clothing is providing the Website to you on an "as is" basis, without any warranty of any kind, and Stori Clothing's liability to you in connection with your use of the Website is very limited.

B. Community Usage Rules.
As a user of the Website, these Community Usage Rules ("Rules") are here to help you understand the conduct that is expected of members of the Website's online communities ("Communities").
(i) Nature of Rules. Your participation in the Communities is subject to all the terms in this User Agreement, including these Rules:
Your User-Generated Content. Do not use any User-Generated Content that belongs to other people and pass it off as your own; this includes any content that you might have found elsewhere on the Internet. For example, your User-Generated Content should not contain any visible logos, phrases, or trademarks that belong to third parties. If anyone contributes to your User-Generated Content or has any rights to your User-Generated Content, or if anyone appears in the User-Generated Content, then you must also have their permission to submit such User-Generated Content to Stori Clothing. (For example, if someone has taken a picture of you and your friend, and you submit that photo to Stori Clothing as your User-Generated Content, then you must obtain your friend's and the photographer's permission to do so.)
Speaking of Photos: No Photos, Videos, or Images of Anyone Other Than You and Your Friends and Family. If you choose to submit photos to the Website, link to embedded videos, or include other images of real people, then make sure they are of you or of you and someone you know - and only if you have their permission to submit them. Additionally, if the photo, video, or image includes a minor, you must be the parent or guardian of the child, or have permission from the child's parents or guardians, prior to submitting them.
Act Appropriately. Be respectful of others' opinions and comments so we can continue to build Communities for everyone to enjoy. If you think your User-Generated Content might offend someone or be embarrassing to someone, then chances are it probably will and it doesn't belong on the Website. Cursing, harassing, stalking, insulting comments, personal attacks, gossip, and similar actions are prohibited. Your User-Generated Content must not threaten, abuse, or harm others, and it must not include any negative comments that are connected to race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or physical handicap. Your User-Generated Content must not be defamatory, slanderous, indecent, obscene, pornographic, or sexually explicit.
Do Not Use for Commercial or Political Purposes. Your User-Generated Content must not advertise or promote a product or service or other commercial activity, or a politician, public servant, or law. If you submit User-Generated Content that Stori Clothing reasonably believes violates this paragraph, then we may take any legal action that we deem appropriate, in our sole discretion.
Do Not Use for Inappropriate Purposes. Your User-Generated Content must not promote any infringing, illegal, or other similarly inappropriate activity. If you submit User-Generated Content that Stori Clothing reasonably believes violates this paragraph, then we may take any legal action that we deem appropriate, in our sole discretion.
Be Honest and Do Not Misrepresent Yourself or Your User-Generated Content. Do not impersonate any other person, user, or company, and do not submit User-Generated Content that you believe may be false, fraudulent, deceptive, inaccurate, or misleading, or that misrepresents your identity or affiliation with a person or company.
Others Can See. We hope that you will use the Communities to exchange information and content and have discussions with other members. However, please remember that the Communities are a public forum and User-Generated Content that you submit on the Website within a Community will be accessible and viewable by other users. Do not submit personally identifiable information (e.g., first and last name together, password, phone number, address, credit card number, medical information, e-mail address, or other personally identifiable information or contact information) on Community spaces and take care when disclosing this type of information to others.
Don't Share Other People's Personal Information. Your User-Generated Content must not reveal another person's address, phone number, e-mail address, social security number, credit card number, medical information, financial information, or any other information that may be used to track, contact, or impersonate that individual, unless, and in the form and by the method, specifically requested by Stori Clothing.
Don't Damage the Website or Anyone's Computers or Other Internet Devices. Your User-Generated Content must not submit viruses, trojan horses, spyware, or any other technologies or malicious code that could impact the operation of the Website or any computer or other Internet Device.
We reserve the right to request at any time proof of the permissions referred to above in a form acceptable to us. Failure to provide such proof may lead to, among other things, the User-Generated Content in question being removed from the Website.
(ii) Your Interactions With Other Users; Disputes. You are solely responsible for your interaction with other users of the Website, whether online or offline. We are not responsible or liable for the conduct or content of any user. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor or become involved in disputes between you and other users. Exercise common sense and your best judgment in your interactions with others (e.g., when you submit any personal or other information) and in all of your other online activities.
3. Website and Content Use Restrictions.
Website Use Restrictions. You agree that you will not: (a) use the Website for any commercial or political purpose (including for purposes of advertising, soliciting funds, collecting product prices, and selling products); (b) use any meta tags or any other "hidden text" utilizing any Stori Clothing trademarks or trade names; (c) engage in any activities through or in connection with the Website that seek to attempt to or do harm any individuals or entities or are unlawful, offensive, obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, violent, threatening, harassing, or abusive, or that violate any right of any third party, or are otherwise objectionable to Stori Clothing; (d) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, reverse assemble, or modify any Website source or object code or any software or other products, services, or processes accessible through any portion of the Website; (e) engage in any activity that interferes with a user's access to the Website or the proper operation of the Website, or otherwise causes harm to the Website, Stori Clothing, or other users of the Website; (f) interfere with or circumvent any security feature of the Website or any feature that restricts or enforces limitations on use of or access to the Website, the Content, or the User-Generated Content; or (g) otherwise violate this User Agreement or any Additional Terms.
Content Use Restrictions. You also agree that, in using the Content (other than your User-Generated Content that does not contain any Stori Clothing Licensed Elements): (a) you will not monitor, gather, copy, or distribute such Content (except as may be a result of standard search engine or activity or use of a standard Internet browser) on the Website by using any robot, rover, "bot", spider, scraper, crawler, spyware, engine, device, software, extraction tool, or any other automatic device, utility, or manual process of any kind; (b) you will not frame or utilize framing techniques to enclose any such Content (including any images, text, or page layout); (c) you will keep intact all trademark, copyright, and other intellectual property notices contained in such Content; (d) you will not use such Content in a manner that suggests an unauthorized association with any of our or our licensors' products, services, or brands; (e) you will not make any modifications to such Content (other than to the extent of your permitted use of the Stori Clothing Licensed Elements, if applicable); (f) you will not modify, reproduce, archive, sell, lease, rent, exchange, create derivative works from, publish by hard copy or electronic means, publicly perform, display, disseminate, distribute, broadcast, retransmit, circulate to any third party or on any third-party website, or otherwise use or exploit such Content in any way for any purpose except as specifically permitted by this User Agreement or any Additional Terms or with the prior written consent of an officer of Stori Clothing or, in the case of Content from a licensor, the owner of the Content; or (g) you will not insert any code or product to manipulate such Content in any way that adversely affects any user experience.
Availability of Website and Content. Stori Clothing may immediately suspend or terminate the availability of the Website and Content (and any elements and features of them) for any reason, in Stori Clothing's sole discretion, and without advance notice or liability (except as set forth in Section 9 below or any Additional Terms).
Reservation of All Rights Not Granted as to Content and Website. This User Agreement and any Additional Terms include only narrow, limited grants of rights to Content and to use and access the Website. No right or license may be construed, under any legal theory, by implication, estoppel, industry custom, or otherwise. All rights not expressly granted to you are reserved by Stori Clothing. Any unauthorized use of any Content or the Website for any purpose is prohibited.
6. Procedure for Alleging Infringement of Other Intellectual Property.
If you own intellectual property other than copyrights and believe that your intellectual property has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it via the Website, then you may send us a written notice to our PO Box address above that includes all of the following:
a legend or subject line that says: "Intellectual Property Infringement Notice";
a description of the intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;
a description of where the material that you claim is infringing or is the subject of infringing activity is located that is reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material (please include the URL of the Website on which the material appears);
your full name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the owner of the intellectual property, its agent, or the law;
a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are the owner of the intellectual property at issue (or, if you are not the owner, then your statement must indicate that you are authorized to act on the behalf of the owner of the intellectual property that is allegedly infringed); and,
your physical signature or, if sent within an email (rather than in a physical document or a digital document attached to an email), your name typed followed by "//s//", which will serve as your electronic signature.
We will act on such notices in our sole discretion. Any user of the Website that fails to respond satisfactorily to Stori Clothing with regard to any such notice is subject to suspension or termination. We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing material.
7. Unsolicited Ideas and Materials Prohibited; No Confidential or Special Relationship With Stori Clothing.
Any Additional Terms, your relationship with Stori Clothing is not a confidential, fiduciary, or other type of special relationship and your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials, and anything else submitted by you (such as any questions, comments, answers, correspondence, postings, and the like) will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary User-Generated Content - regardless of whether you mark them "confidential", "proprietary", or the like. Stori Clothing will not assume any responsibility, obligation, or liability for the receipt or non-receipt of any of the foregoing. Therefore, your decision to submit any Unsolicited Ideas and Materials to Stori Clothing does not place Stori Clothing in a position that is any different from the position held by members of the general public with regard to your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials.
Stori Clothing finds that many submissions that it receives, including those from professional inventors, are already in the public domain; or are identical or substantially similar to products developed or in development by our own staff; or, for a host of many other reasons, are not novel or unique. So if, you send us any of your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials despite our request that you not do so, it's likely they're identical or substantially similar to ideas, concepts, and materials that, in the past, were developed by our staff or submitted to us by others. Likewise, in the future we may, without any reference to any of your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials, develop or receive from others ideas, concepts, and materials that are identical or substantially similar to your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials.
Stori Clothing's receipt of your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials is not an admission by Stori Clothing of their novelty, priority, or originality, and it does not impair Stori Clothing's right to contest existing or future intellectual property rights relating to your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials.
8. Opening and Terminating Accounts.
In order to access or use some (or potentially all) of the features of the Website, you may have to become a registered user of the Website (or a portion of it). Depending upon your age, registration may require parental consent. Your decision to provide this information is purely voluntary and optional; however, if you elect not to provide it, then you may not be able to access certain Content or Communities or participate in certain features of the Website.
If you register for any feature that requires a password and/or username, then you will select your own password at the time of registration (or we may send you an email notification with a randomly generated initial password) and you agree that:
You will not use a username (or e-mail address) that is already being used by someone else, may impersonate another person, belongs to another person, violates the intellectual property or other right of any person or entity, or is offensive. We may reject the use of any password, username, or email address for any other reason in our sole discretion.
You will provide accurate, current, and complete registration information about yourself in connection with the registration process and, as permitted, to maintain and update it continuously and promptly to keep it accurate, current, and complete for as long as you use the features to which the registration relates.
You are solely responsible for all activities that occur under your account, password, and username, whether or not you authorize the activity (except to the extent that activities occur because someone gains access to our system without using your identifiers and password).
You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and for restricting access to your Internet Device so that others may not access any password protected portion of the Website using your name, username, or password. You will immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account, password, or username, or any other breach of security. You will not sell, transfer, or assign your account or any account rights.
We will not be liable for any loss or damage (of any kind and under any legal theory) to you or any third party arising from your inability or failure for any reason to comply with any of the foregoing obligations.
If any information that you provide, or if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that any information that you provide, is false, inaccurate, outdated, incomplete, or violates this User Agreement, any Additional Terms, or any legal requirement or law, then we may suspend or terminate your account. We also reserve the more general and broad right to terminate your account or suspend or otherwise deny you access to it or its benefits all in our sole discretion, for any reason, and without advance notice or liability (except as may be set forth in Section 9 below or any Additional Terms).
9. Website Access; Charges; Registration; Usage Subscriptions; Virtual Goods and Services; No Monetary Value or Property Interest; Transfers Prohibited.
A. Right to Charge or Require Registration; Access and Fees Relating to Your Internet Device. Stori Clothing reserves the right, upon reasonable notice, to: (i) charge for access to some or all of the Website, charge for access to premium functionality or Content on some or all of the Website, or require a free subscription or account registration to access some or all of the Website ("Usage Subscriptions"); (ii) change terms and conditions for the Website or portions of the Website; and (iii) restrict access to the Website or portions of the Website, in whole or in part, based on any lawful eligibility requirements Stori Clothing may elect to impose (e.g., geographic or demographic limitations). You are responsible for obtaining and maintaining, at your sole cost, all Internet Devices and other equipment and software, and all Internet, mobile, and other services needed for you to access and use the Website.
B. Usage Subscriptions; Virtual Goods and Services.
(i) Right to Modify, Revalue, or Make Usage Subscriptions Free. Stori Clothing may modify, revalue, or make the Usage Subscriptions free at its sole discretion without advance notice or liability. Unless otherwise stated in any Additional Terms, in the event that Stori Clothing terminates or changes the Website, a portion of the Website, or content or functionality associated with a Usage Subscription in a way that materially diminishes the value of your Usage Subscription, then Stori Clothing will provide you with either of the following at Stori Clothing's sole discretion: (a) a pro rata refund of your unused Usage Subscription corresponding to the value of the diminished features or portion of the terminated or changed Website; or (b) an online credit for future redemption of comparable value corresponding to the value of the diminished features or portion of the terminated or changed Website. The valuation of the pro rata refund or credit will be determined in Stori Clothing's good faith business judgment, which determination will be final. The provision of a pro rata refund or credit will be your sole and exclusive remedy with respect to Stori Clothing's termination or change of the Website in a way that materially diminishes the value of your Usage Subscription.
(ii) Right to Modify, Revalue, or Make Virtual Goods and Services Free; Purchased Virtual Tender May Redeemed First. Stori Clothing may offer you the opportunity to purchase or use virtual currency, credits, points, virtual services, or virtual items ("Virtual Goods and Services"). Stori Clothing may modify, revalue, or make the Virtual Goods and Services free at its sole discretion, and such modifications may make the Virtual Goods and Services more or less common, valuable, effective, or functional. Virtual points, credits, or currency ("Virtual Tender") in your account that was purchased with real money may be redeemed before Virtual Tender in your account that was not purchased, no matter when that Virtual Tender was acquired.
(a) If You Have a Corresponding Usage Subscription. If you have a corresponding Usage Subscription, then the use of your Virtual Goods and Services are limited to the life of your corresponding Usage Subscription, subject to any earlier modification or termination of the Website, your account, or your Usage Subscription as set forth in Sections 8 and 9.
(b) If You Don't Have a Corresponding Usage Subscription. If you don't have a corresponding Usage Subscription, then you are encouraged to use your Virtual Goods and Services as quickly as possible - because Stori Clothing makes no representations about the continued availability of such Virtual Goods and Services. The availability of such Virtual Goods and Services is subject to Stori Clothing's right to terminate the Website or your account as set forth in Sections 8 and 9 without any refund to you for any unused or unredeemed Virtual Goods and Services.
(iii) Termination or Change to Usage Subscriptions and Virtual Goods and Services. Except as set forth in any Additional Terms (such as any refund policies that may apply to a subscription service) or in Section 9(B)(i) above with respect to Usage Subscriptions, if Stori Clothing changes, suspends, or terminates any Usage Subscription or Virtual Goods and Services, then you will forfeit the changed, suspended, or terminated Usage Subscription or Virtual Goods and Services. Likewise, except as set forth in Section 9(B)(i), in any Additional Terms, or as required by applicable law, Stori Clothing is not responsible for repairing or replacing your Usage Subscription or Virtual Goods and Services, or providing you with any credit or refund or any other sum, in the event of: (a) Stori Clothing's change, suspension, or termination of any Usage Subscription or Virtual Goods and Services; or (b) for loss or damage due to Website error, or any other reason. Pursuant to its right to terminate accounts under Section 8 above, Stori Clothing reserves the right to terminate Usage Subscriptions and Virtual Goods and Services for cause immediately at its sole discretion without advance notice or liability. In such an event you will not be entitled to a pro rata refund or credit.
C. No Monetary Value; Limited Right to Use; No Property, Economic, or Ownership Interest. Except as set forth in any Additional Terms or in Section 9(B)(i) above with respect to Usage Subscriptions, purchases of Usage Subscriptions and Virtual Goods and Services are final, nonrefundable, have no monetary value (i.e., are not a cash account or equivalent), and are purchases of only a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-assignable, personal, and non-transferable license to use, even if they come with a durational term (e.g., a monthly subscription). Notwithstanding any agreement by Stori Clothing to provide a discretionary pro rata refund or credit in certain circumstances, you have no property, proprietary, intellectual property, ownership, economic, or monetary interest in your Usage Subscriptions or Virtual Goods and Services, which remain the exclusive property of Stori Clothing (subject only to the license set forth in Section 1(C) above, this User Agreement, and any Additional Terms). Except as set forth in this Section 9, the license may be immediately suspended or terminated for any reason, in Stori Clothing's sole discretion, and without advance notice or liability.
D. Transfers Prohibited. Stori Clothing will not recognize the transfer of Usage Subscriptions or Virtual Goods and Services (including for "real" money or any other consideration or items of value whether inside our outside of the Website).
10. Links by You to the Website.
We grant you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-assignable, personal, and non-transferable license to create hyperlinks to the Website, so long as: (a) the links only incorporate text, and do not use any trademark graphics that are owned or licensed to Stori Clothing, (b) the links and the content on your website do not suggest any affiliation with Stori Clothing or cause any other confusion, and (c) the links and the content on your website do not portray Stori Clothing or its products or services in a false, misleading, derogatory, or otherwise offensive matter, and do not contain content that is inappropriate for children or that is unlawful, offensive, obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, violent, threatening, harassing, or abusive, or that violate any right of any third party or are otherwise objectionable to Stori Clothing. Stori Clothing reserves the right to suspend or prohibit linking to the Website for any reason, in its sole discretion, without advance notice or any liability of any kind to you or any third party.
