These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Waldo and you regarding the Service and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Waldo and you regarding the Service and Content. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable (either by an arbitrator appointed pursuant to the terms of the “Arbitration” section above or by court of competent jurisdiction, but only if you timely opt out of arbitration by sending us an Arbitration Opt-out Notice in accordance with the terms set forth above), that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Waldo’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null. Waldo may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications provided by Waldo under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (a) via email; or (b) by posting to the Service. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Waldo’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Waldo. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.

Waldo does not claim any ownership rights in any User Content and nothing in these Terms will be deemed to restrict any rights that you may have to use and exploit your User Content. Subject to the foregoing, Waldo and its licensors exclusively own all right, title, and interest in and to the Service and Content, including all associated intellectual property rights. You acknowledge that the Service and Content are protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of the United States and foreign countries. You agree not to remove, alter or obscure any copyright, trademark, service mark, or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the Service or Content.
Rights in User Content Granted by You
By making any User Content available through the Service you hereby grant to Waldo and the Owner of any gallery you submit your User Content to a non-exclusive, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide, royalty-free license to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon, distribute, publicly display, publicly perform and distribute your User Content in connection with operating, marketing, and providing the Service. We do not claim ownership of your content, but you grant us a license to use it. Nothing is changing about your rights to your content. We do not claim ownership of your content that you post on or through the Service and you are free to share your content with anyone else, wherever you want.
You are solely responsible for all your User Content. You represent and warrant that you own all your User Content or you have all rights that are necessary to grant us the license rights in your User Content under these Terms. You also represent and warrant that neither your User Content, nor your use and provision of your User Content to be made available through the Service, nor any use of your User Content by Waldo on or through the Service will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party’s intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation.
You can remove your User Content by specifically deleting it. However, in certain instances, some of your User Content (such as photos, posts, or comments you make) may not be completely removed and copies of your User Content may continue to exist on the Service. We are not responsible or liable for the removal or deletion of (or the failure to remove or delete) any of your User Content.
Rights in Content Granted by Waldo
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, Waldo grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to download, view, copy, print, and display one copy of the Content solely in connection with your permitted use of the Service and solely for your personal, non-commercial purposes.
Fees for Services
You agree to pay Waldo any fees for each Service you purchase or use (including any overage fees), in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented to you for that Service. Where applicable, you will be billed using the billing method you select through the site or mobile apps. Fees paid by you are non-refundable, except as provided in these Terms or when required by law.
Specialty Event Subscription Terms
All Speciality Event Subscriptions will include a specified storage limit and limited hosting period as specified when purchased. By purchasing a subscription, you acknowledge the limits and agree to remove your content prior to the end of the hosting period or to activate a recurring subscription.
Recurring Subscription (Plus, Premium, Photo Manager, and Photo Finder) Terms
Some of our Services are billed on a recurring subscription basis (we call these “Subscriptions”). This means that you will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (each period is called a “billing cycle”). Billing cycles are typically monthly or annual, depending on what subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription.
Your use of Subscription Services is governed by these Subscription Terms, which are described in further detail below. The following points are particularly important:
- Recurring Subscriptions automatically renew until canceled.
- You may cancel your Subscription Service at any time by following these instructions in our Help Center, all subject to the terms below.
- Cancellation will cease auto-renewal of Subscriptions, but Subscription Fees are non-refundable except where required by law.
- The Access Period and cost of the Subscription Service you purchase are disclosed prior to purchase. Unused Photo Finder Subscription credits expire one year from the date of issuance or upon cancellation of Subscription.
- If you purchase a Subscription through an External Service, such as Apple, you must use the tools made available by those services to manage and/or cancel your Subscription.
- In most cases, Trial redemption requires you to provide us with a payment method that will be charged for a Subscription for the Access Period you elected at Trial redemption once the Trial Access Period expires. If you do not want a Subscription following the expiration of a Trial, follow these instructions in our Help Center to cancel your Subscription or contact Support before your Trial Access Period expires.
- Offers may be subject to additional limitations, which are generally presented to you at the time of offer receipt.
If you are not willing to be bound by these Subscription Terms, you should not purchase or use a Subscription Product, and you may not access or otherwise use any portion of the Subscription Services.
Unless otherwise stated, you are responsible for any taxes or duties associated with the sale of the Services, including any related penalties or interest (collectively, “Taxes”). You will pay Waldo for the Services without any reduction for Taxes. If Waldo is obliged to collect or pay Taxes, the Taxes will be invoiced to you, unless you provide Waldo with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority or other documentation providing evidence that no tax should be charged. If you are required by law to withhold any Taxes from your payments to Waldo, you must provide Waldo with an official tax receipt or other appropriate documentation to support such payments. If you use the Services to sell photographs or other services and are obligated, or elect, to collect Taxes from customers, including sales and use tax, on the Waldo platform you are responsible for all requirements, including registration, filing, and remittance to all applicable taxing authorities.
Waldo may change the fees charged for the Services at any time, provided that, for Services billed on a subscription basis, the change will become effective only at the end of the then-current billing cycle of your Subscription. Waldo will provide you with reasonable prior written notice of any change in fees to give you an opportunity to cancel your Subscription before the change becomes effective.
For Services with attendee limits, if the number of users which join an album exceed the limit for the Service initially purchased, Waldo will bill you, and you will owe, the amount for the appropriate package in which the total users who joined the album does not exceed the package attendee limit (“Overage fees”). The amount paid for the Service initially purchased will be credited against the cost of the appropriate package. Unless otherwise stated, any overage fees incurred by you will be billed in arrears. Overage fees which remain unpaid for 30 days after being billed are considered overdue. Failure to pay overage fees when due may result in the applicable Service being limited, suspended, or terminated (subject to applicable legal requirements), which may result in a loss of your data associated with that Service. Any outstanding overage fees not paid will have late fees added, at a rate up to the statutory maximum.
Rights and Terms for Apps
Rights in App Granted by Waldo
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, Waldo grants you a limited non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to download and install a copy of the App on a mobile device or computer that you own or control and to run such copy of the App solely for your own purposes consistent with the Subscription you have purchased.

- In the event of any third party claim that the App or your possession and use of the App infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, Waldo will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement, and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim to the extent required by these Terms.
- App Provider and its subsidiaries are third party beneficiaries of these Terms as related to your license of the App, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of these Terms, App Provider will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms as related to your license of the App against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.
- You must also comply with all applicable third party terms of service when using the App.
- You agree to comply with all U.S. and foreign export laws and regulations to ensure that neither the App nor any technical data related thereto nor any direct product thereof is exported or re-exported directly or indirectly in violation of, or used for any purposes prohibited by, such laws and regulations.

You may cancel your Account at any time by sending an email to us at email@example.com. Upon any termination, discontinuation, or cancellation of the Service or your Account, the following provisions will survive: Feedback, Rights in User Content Granted by You, General Prohibitions and Waldo’s Enforcement Rights, Termination, Warranty Disclaimers, Indemnity, Limitation of Liability, and Dispute Resolution
THE SERVICE AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS,” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, WALDO EXPLICITLY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUIET ENJOYMENT OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. Further, Waldo does not warrant that the Service will meet your requirements or be available on an uninterrupted, secure, or error-free basis. Waldo makes no warranty concerning the quality, accuracy, timeliness, truthfulness, completeness, likely results, or reliability of the Service or Content.
You will indemnify and hold harmless Waldo and its officers, directors, employee, and agents, from and against any claims, disputes, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, and costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees arising out of or in any way connected with (a) your access to or use of the Service or Content, (b) your User Content, or (c) your violation of these Terms.
Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT SHALL WALDO OR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING THE SERVICE OR CONTENT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF DATA OR GOODWILL, LOST PROFITS, COMPUTER DAMAGE, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, SYSTEM FAILURE OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE SERVICES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICE OR CONTENT, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT WALDO HAS BEEN NOTIFIED ORALLY OR IN WRITING OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE, EVEN IF A LIMITED REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

Links to Third Party Websites or Resources

We provide these links only as a convenience and are not responsible for the content, products, or services on or available from those websites or resources or links displayed on such websites. Waldo has not reviewed all of the sites linked to the Service and is not responsible for the contents of any such linked site. The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by Waldo of the site. You acknowledge sole responsibility for and assume all risk arising from, your use of any third party websites or resources.

Waldo currently provides our App and Service for free, but please be aware that your carrier’s normal rates and fees, such as text messaging and data charges, will still apply. In the event you change or deactivate your mobile telephone number, you will update your Account information on Waldo within 48 hours to ensure that your messages are not sent to the person who acquires your old number.
Interpretation of these Terms and any claim relating thereto shall be governed by the laws of the State of Texas without regard to its conflict of law provisions. This Dispute Resolution section shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16.
Agreement to Arbitrate
You and Waldo agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Service or Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right: (a) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (b) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (b), an “IP Protection Action”). Without limiting the preceding sentence, you will also have the right to litigate any other Dispute if you provide Waldo with written notice of your desire to do so by email at firstname.lastname@example.org within thirty (30) days following the date you first accept these Terms (such notice, an “Arbitration Opt-out Notice”). If you don’t provide Waldo with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice within the thirty (30) day period, you will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived your right to litigate any Dispute except as expressly set forth in clauses (a) and (b) above. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action or, if you timely provide Waldo with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, will be the state and federal courts located in the Western District of Texas and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Unless you timely provide Waldo with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, you acknowledge and agree that you and Waldo are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, representative, or private attorney general proceeding. Further, unless both you and Waldo otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class, representative, or private attorney general proceeding. In addition, the arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and cannot award relief that would affect other users. If this specific limitation on class, representative, private attorney general, or non-individualized declaratory and injunctive relief is held unenforceable as to a particular claim for relief, then that particular claim (and only that claim) shall be severed from arbitration and resolved in court. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at https://www.adr.org/Rules or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a general Demand for Arbitration and a separate Demand for Arbitration for California residents) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules. The arbitrator will decide all issues, except that issues regarding the arbitrability of claims, including disputes over the interpretation or enforceability of the limitation on class, representative, private attorney general, or non-individualized declaratory and injunctive relief, shall be for the court to decide.
Arbitration Location and Procedure
Unless you and Waldo otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that you and Waldo submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Waldo will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration, unless the arbitrator determines that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration is frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for relief does not exceed $75,000 in value, Waldo will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if Waldo changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to email@example.com) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of Waldo’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Waldo in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).

ADDITIONAL TERMS APPLICABLE TO PROFESSIONAL SERVICES (“PROFESSIONAL SERVICES TERMS”)
The WaldoPro Plan is available to users (i) who register for a Photo Manager free trial (when available) and / or (ii) who pay for a Photo Manager subscription and make their photos available for purchase on the Waldo platform. Subscribers to the WaldoPro Plan (“Waldo Partners”), agree to pay Waldo transactional fees on all sales conducted on the platform at the applicable agreed-upon rate. Waldo shall remit the remaining monies collected from all sales less any merchant processing fees, shipping, handling, taxes, printing costs, and refunds (“Net Partner Proceeds”). Such Net Partner Proceeds shall be paid to Partner within 30 days of the end of the month following receipt, unless otherwise agreed.
Free Trials for Recurring Subscriptions
When you first register for the Plus, Premium, or Photo Manager, Waldo may offer you the ability to use the Services without paying a Subscription Fee for a limited trial period (a “Free Trial”). The duration of a Free Trial will be the number of days specified by Waldo at the time of your registration for such Free Trial. You may not need to provide Waldo with a credit card or other Payment Information in order to register for a Free Trial. At the conclusion of your Free Trial, your Subscription may automatically terminate unless you elect to continue to use the Services by selecting a Subscription Plan and providing Waldo (or our applicable third party payment processor) with valid Payment Information or, in some cases, if you have provided Payment Information at the time of starting your Free Trial, your Subscription may automatically renew. Upon Waldo’s receipt of your Payment Information, and the expiration of your Free Trial, when applicable, you will be charged for the Subscription applicable to your selected Subscription Plan. Waldo may offer you the ability to register for one or more of the Subscriptions without the opportunity to participate in a Free Trial.
Term and Automatic Renewal of Recurring Subscriptions
Your Subscription is valid commencing on the date in which Waldo provides you with access to the Services pursuant to its receipt of your valid Payment Information (the “Commencement Date”) and will last for the duration of the Subscription term that you select at the time of your registration for the Subscription Services (the “Subscription Term”).
YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW AT THE END OF EACH SUBSCRIPTION TERM FOR SUCCESSIVE SUBSCRIPTION TERMS OF THE SAME DURATION AS THE SUBSCRIPTION TERM ORIGINALLY SELECTED UNLESS THE SUBSCRIPTION IS TERMINATED AND/OR CANCELED BY YOU OR WALDO PRIOR TO THE END OF SUCH SUBSCRIPTION TERM. SUCH RENEWAL WILL OCCUR AUTOMATICALLY ON THE APPLICABLE ANNIVERSARY OF THE COMMENCEMENT DATE. YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME PRIOR TO THE END OF THE SUBSCRIPTION TERM THROUGH YOUR ACCOUNT SETTINGS IN THE SUBSCRIPTION SECTION, OR BY SENDING AN EMAIL TO HELP@WALDOPHOTOS.COM PROVIDING CLEAR WRITTEN NOTICE OF SUCH REQUEST. You agree that upon such renewal, the credit card or other designated payment method in your Account Settings will be billed the applicable Subscription Fee for your Subscription Plan then in effect at the time of renewal. If you disagree with these automatic renewal provisions, your sole remedy is to cancel or terminate your Subscription.
You may upgrade your Subscription Plan at any time during the Subscription Term by notifying Waldo using your Account Settings. If you upgrade your Subscription Plan, the credit card or other designated payment method in your Account Settings will be billed for the difference in price, pro-rated for the remainder of your Subscription Term.
You acknowledge that the amount of the recurring charge at the time of Subscription renewal may differ from the Subscription Fees you originally paid for the Subscription Services if: (i) the Subscription Fee for your Subscription Plan changes during your applicable Subscription Term, or (ii) if you change your Subscription Plan or Subscription Term during the previous Subscription Term. Waldo will notify you of any changes to the Subscription Fee prior to the date on which your Subscription Term will renew. You hereby agree to any such revised Subscription Fees and your sole remedy if you disagree with such changes is to terminate your account and stop using the Subscription Services.
Waldo reserves the right at any time, at its sole discretion and without notice, to suspend, modify, discontinue or permanently cancel the Subscription Services or any portions thereof, including the Subscription Plans and any policies, features, and terms applicable thereto. If the Subscription Services, or any part thereof, to which you subscribe are permanently discontinued or canceled by Waldo, your Subscription will terminate, and we will have no further liability to you. You acknowledge that the Subscription Services may be interrupted from time to time, with or without notice, for maintenance, upgrades, system updates, or in the event of equipment failure or for any other foreseeable or non-foreseeable cause.
WALDO WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY INTERRUPTION, SUSPENSION, DISCONTINUANCE, OR UNAVAILABILITY OF THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES FOR ANY REASON, OR FOR ANY LOSS OR INABILITY TO ACCESS ANY MEDIA OR MATERIALS ON THE SERVICES.
Termination of Services
You may request the termination of your Subscription or account at any time by canceling your account in the Account Settings, or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org providing clear written notice of such request. When Waldo receives your termination request, Waldo will proceed with the termination and notify you of such termination via email. Waldo may request additional information from you prior to terminating your Subscription. Your Subscription or account is not terminated until you receive confirmation of such termination from Waldo. If you terminate your Subscription or account, such termination will be effective immediately upon your receipt of such confirmation from Waldo, regardless of whether there is any period of time remaining in your Subscription Term. By way of example and not in limitation of the foregoing, if you request the termination of your Subscription and you have two months remaining in your Subscription Term, such termination is effective immediately and you will not have access to the Subscription Services for the remaining two months of such Subscription.
All Professional Fees are nonrefundable. Upon termination, cancellation, or discontinuation of your Subscription or account for any reason, you will not be entitled to receive a refund for any Professional Fees or other amounts previously charged to you, or for any unused portion of any Professional Fees if such termination, cancellation or discontinuation occurs prior to the expiration of the applicable Subscription Term.
You may change your email, credit card information, or other Payment Information for your account by using the Account Settings available in your user profile. It is solely your responsibility to keep your account information and Payment Information accurate and up-to-date. If the Payment Information for your account is invalid and cannot be billed for the Professional Fees at the time such Professional Fees are payable and due, then Waldo may terminate your account for nonpayment. If Waldo does not have a current, working email address for your user account, then you may not receive important notices from us regarding your account, including notices regarding termination. Waldo cannot guarantee that you will receive notice of the termination of your account.
YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR CREATING AND MAINTAINING BACKUP COPIES OF ANY USER CONTENT YOU UPLOAD, POST, OR MAKE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICES DURING ANY APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION TERM AT YOUR SOLE COST AND EXPENSE. YOU MAINTAIN RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY FOR ANY LOSSES OR DAMAGES YOU INCUR FOR FAILURE TO MAINTAIN BACKUP COPIES OF YOUR USER CONTENT. WALDO IS NOT LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES OR LOSSES THAT RESULT FROM THE LOSS OR BREACH OF YOUR USER CONTENT IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE WALDO SERVICES.
Waldo uses third party vendors to host and store any Media that you upload to Waldo through your use of the Professional Services. We may require our vendors to maintain certain standards with respect to your User Content, but Waldo does not guarantee that your User Content will be secure and/or available at all times during the Subscription Term. Waldo does not guarantee that your User Content will be available on the Services after the termination of your Subscription, irrespective of the reason for such termination. It is your sole responsibility to create and maintain backup copies of any such User Content on a regular basis.
Please note that when User Content or other files are deleted (or your account is canceled), those files will be deleted as soon as reasonable pursuant to Waldo’s data destruction policies and cannot be recovered by Waldo or any third party vendor following deletion (including Amazon S3 if you have subscribed to a WaldoVault account).
Use of User Information

You are responsible for any taxes that you are obligated to pay or that Waldo may collect from you in connection with your purchase of Products. If you do not pay the sales or other taxes or fees on a transaction, you will be responsible for the taxes or fees in the event they are later determined to be payable on the sale, and Waldo reserves the right to collect the taxes or other related fees from you at any time. In certain jurisdictions, Waldo may be required to collect and remit sales tax in connection with your purchase of Products. Any such taxes will be added to the purchase price and reflected on your invoice or receipt.
Product Downloads; Shipping Terms and Policies
If you purchase a Photo download, such download will be made available to you through the Services upon Waldo’s receipt of your valid Payment Information.
If you purchase Photo prints or other physical medium Products (i.e., metals, canvasses, or other photo merchandise), Waldo will use its commercially reasonable efforts (and our Waldo Vendors will use commercially reasonable efforts) to ship all orders for such Products within the estimated delivery time applicable to various methods of shipping available at the time you place your order. Waldo is not responsible for any delays in shipping. Waldo or the Waldo Vendors reserve the right to substitute another carrier of equal or lesser cost to deliver your order at our discretion. All shipping charges are your responsibility. Please see our Shipping Charges for additional detail. Shipping charges will be included in your shopping cart and can be viewed on a summary screen prior to finalizing your order. The shipping charge shown during the Product checkout process is subject to verification and to correction or change without notice, provided that if the actual shipping charge is more than the amount shown in your shopping cart, we will contact you with the correct shipping costs before processing your order, and you will have an opportunity to cancel your order. All orders are shipped FOB shipping point. Title to the physical medium of the Products passes from Waldo to you upon shipment. If an item in your order is temporarily out of stock, we may hold your order until it is complete prior to shipment.
Waldo unconditionally guarantees your satisfaction with any Products that you purchase through the Services. If you are unsatisfied with any Photos or other Products you have purchased from Waldo, we will gladly accept the return of any Product you have ordered for any reason within thirty (30) days of your receipt of the Product. Upon completion of the return procedure and receipt of the returned Product, we will resend you the Product or issue you a full refund of the purchase price paid for such Product, whichever you prefer. We do not provide refunds for your original shipping cost unless your order is physically defective in some manner. If you are unsatisfied with a Product that is not in a physical medium form (i.e., a Photo download), then upon your request, we may issue you a full refund of the purchase price paid for such Product at our discretion depending on the circumstances. To request a refund or replacement for any Product, please contact Waldo at email@example.com. Please do not contact your credit card company to dispute a charge before contacting Waldo.

Product Descriptions; Pricing; Errors
Waldo strives to maintain accurate information in the Services and to eliminate any errors. However, we do not warrant that Product descriptions, Photos, pricing or other Waldo Materials are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. In addition, all weights and size dimensions are approximate. While we make reasonable efforts to accurately display all details of our Product offerings, including the applicable color, please note that the actual color you will see for a Photo depends on the settings of your computer screen and we cannot guarantee that your computer will accurately display all Photo colors. Waldo or a Waldo Vendor reserves the right to format, manipulate or otherwise modify Photos as may be required to satisfy a particular order. If a Product offered by Waldo is not as described or pictured, your sole remedy is to return the Product in unused condition for a refund within thirty (30) days of receipt. In the event of an error, whether contained in the Services, in an order confirmation, in processing an order or otherwise, we reserve the right to correct such error and charge the correct price or cancel the order, and your sole remedy in the event of such error is to cancel your order.
Disclaimer of Warranties

In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”), the text of which may be found on the U.S. Copyright Office website at http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/pl105-304.pdf, and other applicable laws, Waldo has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at Waldo’s sole discretion, the accounts of users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. Waldo may also, at its sole discretion, limit access to Waldo’s website and services and/or terminate the accounts of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement. Waldo will respond to claims of copyright infringement committed using Waldo that are reported to Waldo’s Designated Copyright Agent, identified in the sample notice below.
If you knowingly misrepresent in your notification that the material or activity is infringing, you will be liable for any damages, including costs and attorney’s’ fees, incurred by us or the alleged infringer as the result of our relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing.

Upon receipt of the Notice as described below, Waldo will take whatever action, at its sole discretion, it deems appropriate, including removal of the challenged material from the Waldo Services.
Your Personal Information may be processed by us in the country where it was collected and transferred to, and maintained on, computers located outside of your state, province, country (including the United States), or other governmental jurisdiction where privacy laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country. If you’re located outside the United States and choose to provide your Personal Information to us, we may transfer your Personal Information to the United States and process it there.
Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to use the Service and we do not intentionally collect or maintain Personal Information from those who are under 13 years old. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. Thus, if we obtain actual knowledge that a user is under 13, we will take steps to remove that user’s Personal Information from our databases. We recommend that children between the ages of 13 and 18 obtain their parent’s permission before submitting information over the internet. By using the Service, you are representing that you are at least 18 years old, or that you are at least 13 years old and have your parents’ permission to use the Service. We do permit parents and legal guardians of children under 13 years of age to provide the child’s information within the parent or legal guardian’s account for purposes of gathering photos of the child at events they attend.
Collection and Use of Information
Our Service is designed to help you more easily identify photos of yourself, to share those photos with other users, and to connect and share photos with friends and other users.
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Service, to administer your use of the Service (including your Account, if you are an Account holder), and to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate our Service.
In general, we collect information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, email address, and phone number (“Personal Information”) that you submit to us voluntarily through the Service, including Personal information that you submit in the process of creating or editing your Account and user profile on the Service. For example, our registration and login process requires you to provide us with your name, mobile phone number, valid email address, and password of your choice.
When you personalize your profile and use the features of the Service, we will collect any Personal Information you voluntarily provide, and we may also request optional non-personal information to support your use of the Service, such as your year of birth, gender, and other demographic information. We refer to such information as “Anonymous Information” because it cannot be used by itself to identify you and therefore is not Personal Information. We collect information in the form of the User Content that you submit during your use of the Service, such as photos, comments, ratings, and other information you choose to submit.
We also collect the information you provide when you use the Service. This can include information in or about the User Content you provide, such as the location of a photo or the date a file was created. If you connect to us from a social network, we also will be able to access and collect Personal Information about you and your friends that your privacy settings on the social network permit us to access. For instance, we may collect your user ID or profile information that you have permitted to be displayed through the Service in order to display you as a friend or in association with your profile and collections.
When you order our for-fee products or services, you will need to submit Personal Information such as your credit card number, postal address, or other payment information so that our service providers can process your payment for those products and services. If you choose to sign up to receive information about products or services that may be of interest to you, we will collect your email address and all related information. Additionally, we collect any information that you voluntarily enter, including Personal Information, into any postings, comments, or forums within the Waldo community.
Use of Facial Recognition Data
We do not sell, trade, or rent any Personal Information derived from our use of facial recognition technology. As detailed below, we use a variety of reasonable, industry-standard security technologies and administrative, physical, and electronic procedures to help protect your Personal Information, including information derived from our use of facial recognition technology, from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. We may provide secure access to this information with third party service providers who work on our behalf to administer and provide certain components or features of the Service.
We will retain and store Personal Information derived from the facial recognition technology for as long as you have an active Account on the Service. Personal Information derived from facial recognition technology will be deleted or destroyed through a secure manner. If you are a parent or guardian and believe that we might have inadvertently collected any personal information from your child under the age of 13 through the Service, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that information be deleted or destroyed.
We collect information from and about the computers, phones, or other devices where you install or access the Service, depending on the permissions you have granted. We may associate the information we collect from your different devices to provide a better or more consistent experience. Information we may collect includes device identifiers, user settings, and the operating system of your device, as well as information about your use of our Service.
When you use our App, we may collect and store information about your location by converting your IP address into a rough geo-location or by accessing your mobile device’s GPS coordinates or coarse location if you enable location services on your device. We may use location information to improve and personalize our Service for you, such as to identify photos of you near a particular location. If you do not want us to collect location information, you may disable that feature on your mobile device. However, if you disable the location services feature on your mobile device after using the App, we cannot remove any historic location data unless you delete your Account.

If you send an e-mail or SMS to us, or fill out our “Feedback” form through the Service, we will collect your e-mail address or mobile number and the full content of your e-mail or SMS, including attached files, and other information you provide. We may use and display your full name and email address or mobile number when you send an email or SMS notification to a friend through the Service or the social network from which you have connected to the Service (such as in an invitation, or when sharing your content). Additionally, we use your email address or mobile number to contact you on behalf of your friends (such as when someone sends you a personal message) or notifications from a social network or other website with whom you have registered to receive such notifications. We may use this e-mail address or mobile number to contact you, for things such as notifications of photos you’ve been found in, opportunities to purchase the photos, or limited-time promotional opportunities. You may indicate your preference to stop receiving further promotional communications as further detailed below.
Information Collected Automatically
As you use the Service, certain information about how a person uses our Service may also be passively collected and stored on our or our service providers’ server logs, including your Internet protocol address, browser type, and operating system. We also use navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URL) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and the solutions and information for which you searched and viewed, or on which of the advertisements displayed on the Service you clicked. This type of information is collected to administer the Service, to make the Service more useful to you, to tailor your experience with the Service to meet your special interests and needs, and to analyze (and have third parties analyze) the information to improve, customize and enhance our Service.
An “Internet protocol address” or “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. For example, we, or our service providers, may track your IP Address when you access the Service to assist with ad targeting.
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing a website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to tell us how and when you interact with our Services, to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on our Service, to improve our Service, and to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience with the Service. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. In order to use our Service, your web browser must accept Cookies. If you choose to disable Cookies, some aspects or features of the Service may not work properly, and you will not be able to receive our Service.

Examples of such services include sending email, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing payments (including credit card payments), quality control (such as manually or mechanically comparing reference images with photo matches to determine the accuracy of matches), creating biometric identifiers and providing customer service. We require our third party service providers to promise not to use such information except as necessary to provide the relevant services to us and not to disclose or use your Personal Information for any other purpose. We may also share aggregated information and Anonymous Information with third parties for research and analysis, demographic profiling, and other similar purposes.
We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials or private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose your Personal Information to government or law enforcement officials or private parties if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to (a) comply with relevant laws and to stop any activity that we consider illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity; (b) to respond to claims, subpoenas or warrants served on us; or (c) to protect and defend our rights, property, and safety and the rights, property, and safety or you or third parties.
