To access our services, users must register and create an account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information and for all activities that occur under your account.

3. Use of the Service

PressPulse AI is designed to provide AI-driven media opportunity matching. Users must use the service for its intended purpose and adhere to all applicable laws and regulations. Any unauthorized or improper use is strictly prohibited.

By using PressPulse AI, you hereby grant us explicit permission to act on your behalf in interacting with various media opportunity platforms, including but not limited to HARO (Help a Reporter Out), Connectively, Featured, Qwoted, and similar services. This authorization allows PressPulse AI to access, submit information, and engage in communications as necessary to facilitate the efficient matching and acquisition of media opportunities for you.

You acknowledge and agree that this interaction is integral to the functionality and effectiveness of PressPulse AI services and consent to such engagement as part of your use of our service. PressPulse AI commits to maintaining the highest standards of privacy and discretion in all such interactions.

Please be aware that this authorization does not relinquish your control over your personal or professional information. You retain the right to modify or revoke this authorization at any time by deleting your account settings or contacting us directly.

4. Disclaimers

PressPulse AI serves as an assistive tool to help you in identifying potential media opportunities. Users are responsible for their direct engagement with these platforms.

As a user, you acknowledge your responsibility to comply with the terms and conditions of third-party platforms such as HARO, Connectively, Featured, Qwoted, etc. PressPulse AI is not responsible for any actions taken by users that may violate these third-party terms.

By using PressPulse AI, you acknowledge that any actions taken on platforms like HARO are conducted independently and at your own discretion. PressPulse AI provides analysis and suggestions, but all final actions and communications on these platforms are to be executed by you, the user.

You agree not to modify, adapt, or otherwise alter PressPulse AI to create a false impression of direct association or partnership with any third-party platforms including HARO. PressPulse AI is an independent service aimed at enhancing your ability to identify and secure media opportunities.

Users of PressPulse AI must ensure that their use of our service, in conjunction with third-party platforms, complies with all applicable terms and conditions set forth by those platforms. This includes, but is not limited to, the rules regarding content submission, interactions, and the use of information obtained from these platforms.

5. Privacy and Data Usage

We prioritize your privacy and handle your data in compliance with relevant data protection laws. Our data collection and usage policies are outlined in our Privacy Policy.

6. Modifications to the Service

PressPulse AI reserves the full right to modify, update, or discontinue any aspect of our service at any time, at our sole discretion, without any prior notice to users. This includes but is not limited to changes in features, functionality, service offerings, user interfaces, and the overall service experience. We understand that such changes may impact how you use PressPulse AI, and we are committed to ensuring a seamless transition whenever possible. However, users should be aware that certain modifications may result in the temporary unavailability of the service or certain features within the service. In the event of a discontinuation of the service, we will strive to provide users with reasonable advance notice and information regarding the discontinuation process. However, there may be circumstances under which a service or feature may need to be withdrawn immediately, without prior notice, due to legal, security, technical, or other constraints. Please note that PressPulse AI is not liable for any loss or damage arising from any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the service. We encourage users to regularly review our Terms of Service for any updates or changes

7. Warranties

PressPulse AI provides a platform designed to facilitate media opportunity matching by leveraging advanced AI technology. However, it is important for users to understand that PressPulse AI does not guarantee the continuous availability or uninterrupted functioning of its services. The nature of online platforms means that occasional downtime and service interruptions may occur due to maintenance, updates, or factors beyond our control. Furthermore, while we strive to ensure the accuracy and relevance of the opportunities presented, PressPulse AI does not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of the information provided. All information and opportunities are presented on an 'as is' basis, and users are advised to exercise their judgment and conduct due diligence when pursuing these opportunities. Users should also be aware that PressPulse AI does not make any warranties, express or implied, regarding the service. This includes, but is not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. By using PressPulse AI, users acknowledge and agree that the use of the service and any reliance on any such information is at their own risk.

8. Limitation of Liability

PressPulse AI's liability to users is limited to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. Under no circumstances shall PressPulse AI, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, or licensors be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or punitive damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses, resulting from:

  1. Your Access or Use of or Inability to Access or Use the Service: This includes any downtime, server disruptions, timed out connections, or any technical or policy changes.
  2. Unauthorized Access, Use, or Alteration of Your Transmissions or Content: This takes into account any breaches of security or unauthorized access of your personal information.
  3. Statements or Conduct of Any Third Party on the Service: PressPulse AI does not endorse and is not responsible for the statements, actions, or omissions of any third parties, or for any links to third-party websites or services.
  4. Your Reliance on the Completeness, Accuracy, or Existence of any Advertising: This includes any changes or updates to such advertising.
  5. Any Relationship or Transaction Between You and Any Advertiser or Sponsor Whose Advertising Appears on the Service: This covers any product or service offered by third parties and any terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with such dealings.
  6. Any Other Matter Relating to the Service: This is a broad spectrum that includes various unforeseen liabilities.

Our liability is limited even if PressPulse AI has been advised of the possibility of such damages or if such damages were foreseeable. By using PressPulse AI, you agree that this limitation of liability represents a reasonable allocation of risk and is a fundamental element of the basis of the bargain between PressPulse AI and you. The PressPulse AI service would not be provided without such limitations

9. Indemnification

As a user of PressPulse AI, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless PressPulse AI, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, and representatives from any and all third party claims, losses, liability, damages, and/or costs (including reasonable attorney fees and costs) arising from your access to or use of our service, your violation of these Terms of Service, or your infringement, or infringement by any other user of your account, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity. This indemnification obligation will survive the termination or expiration of your account and these Terms of Service. PressPulse AI will provide notice to you promptly of any such claim, suit, or proceeding. In addition, you agree to assist and cooperate with PressPulse AI in defending any such claim, suit, or proceeding at your expense. Further, you agree that PressPulse AI shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or exemplary damages, including but not limited to damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible losses, resulting from: (i) the use or the inability to use the service; (ii) the cost of procurement of substitute goods and services resulting from any goods, data, information, or services purchased or obtained, or messages received, or transactions entered into through or from the service; (iii) unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data; (iv) statements or conduct of any third party on the service; or (v) any other matter relating to the service.

10. Termination

These terms remain effective until terminated by either you or PressPulse AI. You may terminate your agreement with PressPulse AI at any time by discontinuing your use of our services and, where applicable, deleting your account.

PressPulse AI reserves the right to terminate or suspend your access to the service at any time, with or without notice, for any reason, including but not limited to a breach or violation of these terms. This includes, but is not limited to:

  1. Violation of Terms: Engaging in activities that violate these terms of service, or any other policies or guidelines set forth by PressPulse AI, including misuse of the service or unauthorized behavior.
  2. Illegal Activities: Using the service for illegal purposes or in a manner that facilitates illegal activities.
  3. Harmful Conduct: Conduct that is harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, or discriminatory in any way.
  4. Security Breach: Actions that compromise the security of the service, including unauthorized access to data or the distribution of harmful computer code such as viruses or malware.
  5. Non-Payment: Failure to fulfill payment obligations for paid services, if applicable.

Upon termination:

  • Your right to use the service will immediately cease.
  • All rights granted to you under these terms will immediately revoke.
  • You must promptly discontinue all use of the service and its content.

PressPulse AI is not liable for any losses or damages arising from the termination of the service or your account. It is your responsibility to secure any data or content you wish to retain prior to termination.

We reserve the right to delete or deactivate your account and all related information and files in such an account without liability to you. If applicable, any outstanding balance owed to PressPulse AI for your use of the service through the date of termination will immediately become due and payable in full.

The termination of your account does not relieve you of any obligations to pay accrued charges.

Please note that certain provisions of these terms, by their nature, should survive termination and will thus remain in effect even after termination, including, but not limited to, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, and limitations of liability.

11. Governing Law and Jurisdiction

These Terms of Service and any separate agreements whereby we provide you services shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario, Canada, without regard to its conflict of law principles. This choice of jurisdiction applies regardless of where you access or use PressPulse AI from. Thus, if you are accessing our service from a location outside of Ontario, Canada, you acknowledge and agree that you are doing so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, to the extent that local laws are applicable.

Any disputes, claims, or controversies arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration in Ontario, Canada, before one arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.

If for any reason, a dispute proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and we each waive any right to a jury trial. You and we both agree that either party may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. Furthermore, in the event that the agreement to arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and PressPulse AI agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the courts of Ontario, Canada. Both you and PressPulse AI consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. We both agree to waive our right to a jury trial.

Notwithstanding the above, you agree that PressPulse AI shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.

12. Changes to Terms

PressPulse AI reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms of Service at any time. Such modifications may be necessary due to changes in the legal landscape, evolutions in our service offerings, or adjustments in our business practices. When changes are made, we will make a new copy of the Terms of Service available on our website and update the 'Last Updated' date at the top of these terms.

It is your responsibility as a user to review these Terms of Service periodically for any changes. If a revision is material, as determined solely by PressPulse AI, we will endeavor to provide at least 30 days' notice prior to any new terms taking effect. Such notice may be provided in any manner we deem appropriate, including but not limited to, through your user account, email, or by posting a notice on our website.

Continued use of the service after any such changes shall constitute your consent to and acceptance of the new terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use PressPulse AI. Your use of PressPulse AI following the posting of any changes to the Terms of Service constitutes acceptance of those changes.

This provision for modification shall not be construed as an obligation on PressPulse AI to maintain any specific feature or function of the service for any period of time. We are continuously working to improve PressPulse AI for our users, and this sometimes means discontinuing certain features. Any new features or tools which are added to the current service shall also be subject to these Terms of Service.

14. Dispute Resolution

In the event of any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of or in relation to these Terms of Service, or the breach, termination, or invalidity thereof, the parties shall first endeavor to resolve the dispute amicably through direct negotiation. This involves communication between the relevant parties, or their designated representatives, to discuss the issue at hand and attempt to reach a mutually satisfactory resolution.

If a resolution cannot be reached through negotiation within a reasonable time frame, typically no more than thirty (30) days, the parties agree to engage in mediation. Mediation shall be conducted by an impartial third-party mediator agreed upon by both parties. The mediation process shall be a structured process in which the mediator assists the parties in reaching a voluntary resolution to the dispute. The parties agree to participate in the mediation process in good faith with the intention to resolve the dispute.

The costs of the mediation, including fees of the mediator, shall be shared equally by the parties unless otherwise agreed upon during the mediation process. All discussions in the mediation process are confidential and shall not be used as evidence in any subsequent legal proceedings should the mediation fail to resolve the dispute.

Should the dispute not be resolved by mediation within sixty (60) days from the commencement of the mediation, or within such further period as the parties may agree in writing, either party may then proceed to seek legal remedies through arbitration or litigation, as per the governing law and jurisdiction clauses set forth in these Terms of Service.

It is the intention of the parties that this dispute resolution process will provide a fair, quick, and cost-effective method of resolving any issues, thereby avoiding the complexities and costs associated with formal legal proceedings.
