Terms of Service

UCampus, LLC (“UCampus” or “we”) operates UCampus, which is a network of websites that are each individually built to organize, inform, and entertain students at specific colleges. The services offered by UCampus include any UCampus-branded URL (the "UCampus Website”). UCampus is hosted in the United States.

This Terms of Use Agreement ("Agreement") sets forth the legally binding terms for your use of the UCampus Services. By using the UCampus Services, you agree to be bound by this Agreement, whether you are a "Visitor" (which means that you simply browse the UCampus Website, including through a mobile device, or otherwise use the UCampus Services without being registered) or you are a "Member" (which means that you have registered with UCampus). The term "User" refers to a Visitor or a Member. You are only authorized to use the UCampus Services (regardless of whether your access or use is intended) if you agree to abide by all applicable laws and the terms of this Agreement. Please read this Agreement and save it. If you do not agree to be bound by this Agreement and to follow all applicable laws, you should leave the UCampus Website and discontinue use of the UCampus Services immediately. If you wish to become a Member, communicate with other Members and/or make use of the UCampus Services, you must read this Agreement and indicate your acceptance during the registration process.

UCampus may modify this Agreement from time to time and such modification shall be effective upon posting by UCampus on the UCampus Website. Your continued use of the UCampus Services after UCampus posts a revised Agreement signifies your acceptance of the revised Agreement. It is therefore important that you review this Agreement regularly to ensure you are updated as to any changes.

Please choose carefully the information you post on or through the UCampus Services and that you provide to other Users. Your UCampus posts may not include any form of Prohibited Content, as outlined below. Despite this prohibition, information, materials, products or services provided by other UCampus Members (for instance, in their posts) may, in whole or in part, be unauthorized, impermissible or otherwise violate this Agreement, and UCampus assumes no responsibility or liability for this material. If you become aware of misuse of the UCampus Services by any person, contact UCampus or report abuse to UCampus administrators at feedback@ucampus.net .

UCampus reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to reject, refuse to post or remove any posting by you, or to deny, restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to all or any part of the UCampus Services at any time, for any or no reason, with or without prior notice or explanation, and without liability. UCampus expressly reserves the right to remove your account and/or deny, restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to all or any part of the UCampus Services if UCampus determines, in its sole discretion, that you have violated this Agreement or pose a threat to UCampus and/or its Users.

Even after Membership is terminated, this Agreement will remain in effect.

3. Password. When you sign up to become a Member, you will also be asked to choose a password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You agree not to use the account, username, or password of another Member at any time or to disclose your password to any third party. You agree to notify UCampus immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your account or access to your password. You are solely responsible for any and all use of your account.

4. Use by Members. The UCampus Services are for the personal use of Members and direct commercial endeavors may only be used if they are specifically endorsed or authorized by UCampus. UCampus reserves the right to remove commercial content in its sole discretion. Illegal and/or unauthorized use of the UCampus Services, including collecting usernames, user id numbers, and/or email addresses of Members by electronic or other means for the purpose of sending unsolicited email or unauthorized framing of or linking to the UCampus Website, or employing third party promotional sites or software to promote accounts for money, is prohibited. Commercial advertisements, affiliate links, and other forms of unauthorized solicitation may be removed from Member accounts without notice or explanation and may result in termination of Membership privileges. UCampus reserves the right to take appropriate legal action for any illegal or unauthorized use of the UCampus Services.

5. Proprietary Rights in Content on UCampus.

5.1 UCampus does not claim any ownership rights in the text, files, images, photos, video, sounds, musical works, works of authorship, applications, or any other materials (collectively, "Content") that you post on or through the UCampus Services.
