Terms of Services
This agreement (the "Agreement") describes the general Terms and Conditions (the
"Terms") on which filezigzag.com
offers you ("you," "your," or "User") access to filezigzag.com (the "Service"
or "Site") and any other affiliated filezigzag.com web sites and to the services
provided on this web site and other affiliated web sites. By registering or converting
and distributing/uploading any artistic or literary work, asking a question, providing
an answer, or reading a previously-asked question or answer, you are indicating
that you agree to be bound by these Terms, as well as all other applicable laws,
statutes, ordinances and regulations concerning use of the Services. If you do not
accept the Terms as stated, you may not use the Service.
filezigzag.com reserves the right to modify this Agreement at any time by converting
and distributing the amended terms on the Site. It is your responsibility as a User
of the Site to return periodically to this page to review this Agreement for modifications.
The home page link to this page includes reference to when this Agreement was last
revised. Unless otherwise specified below, all Terms take effect automatically when
they are initially converting and distributing/uploading to the Site. Your continued
use of the Site following any amendment will constitute your agreement to such amendment
1. NATURE OF THE SERVICE
This Site is user-driven and not a file sharing or storing database.
We do not charge people to convert files. We allow anyone at any time to upload
and covert files for personal or commercial use.
YOU USE THE SERVICE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
a) Responsibility for Galleries or Messages.
The Service is only a means for converting files to and from various formats — we
are a service provider that maintains a site that acts as a utility for you and
other Users to convert file types, not share or distribute files or copyrighted
materials. filezigzag.com takes no responsibility for the content of files, nor
does filezigzag.com have any obligation to monitor file conversions and transmission.
To report abuse of the Service, please contact us.
(b) User Release of filezigzag.com.
In the event of any dispute with respect to a transaction made or action taken or
not taken by you after consulting the Service, or between User and any other User
or third party, you release filezigzag.com, its agents and employees from any
claims and damages of every nature (including, without limitation, actual, special,
incidental and consequential), known and unknown, disclosed and undisclosed, arising
out of or in any way connected with such dispute. If you are a Jordan resident,
then you waive Jordan Civil Code S.1542 which says: "A general release does
not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his
favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially
affected his settlement with the debtor".
2. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
(a) Rights Clearances and Assignments.
You will be solely responsible for obtaining all rights clearances (including any
work-for-hire agreements or assignments from employees, agents, contractors, consultants
or representatives needed by User to effectuate filezigzag.com's rights set forth
in this Section) with respect to all Content uploaded by User to filezigzag.com
in connection with this Agreement. At filezigzag.com's request, User will obtain
the execution of any instrument, including from any employee or contractor, that
may be appropriate to assign these rights under this Section to filezigzag.com
or perfect these rights in filezigzag.com's name.
(b) filezigzag.com's Proprietary Material.
The Content and all other information, data, text, graphics, images, photographs,
audio and video clips, logos, icons and software appearing on the Service ("Content")
are and will remain the property of filezigzag.com, our suppliers, our agents
and our licensors. These materials may be used solely to the extent necessary for
your authorized use of the Service, as provided in this Agreement. You may not copy,
distribute, prepare derivative works from or otherwise use Content for any public
or commercial purpose without the written permission of filezigzag.com.
(c) filezigzag.com's Agent to Receive Notification
of Copyright Infringement Claims. filezigzag.com respects
the intellectual property of others, and we ask our Users to do the same. Because
of the size of our community, filezigzag.com does not and can not verify that
Users have the right to convert and distribute Content. However, filezigzag.com
cooperates in removing infringing or unlicensed items once an authorized representative
of the rights owner properly reports them to us. If you believe Galleries or Messages
infringes on your copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights, please
provide filezigzag.com's IP Attorney with a Notice of Infringement us. You can
contact filezigzag.com's IP Attorney at: Khader Rushedat - Jordan P.o.Box 3512 Amman 11821.

your U.S. copyright, you (or your agent) may send filezigzag.com's IP Agent a
