Made to Shine grants you the non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-commercial (unless otherwise agreed by Made to Shine in writing), limited right and license to install and use the Licensed Application solely and exclusively for your personal use on a device that you own or control and as permitted by the usage rules set forth in the relevant App Store’s Terms of Service.  All rights not specifically granted under this license are reserved by Made to Shine and, as applicable, our licensors.

The Licensed Application is licensed, not sold.  Your license confers no title or ownership in the Licensed Application and should not be construed as a sale of any rights in the Licensed Application.  This license shall also apply to any patches or updates you may obtain for the Licensed Application.  By using the Licensed Application, you acknowledge and agree that such limited license does not include, and that you will not engage in, permit another person or entity to engage in, or otherwise be related to or a part of, the following restricted activities:

5.4. Your Grant of Rights in Submitted Content

If you submit Content to the Service (a “Submission”), you acknowledge that you are the owner of any intellectual property rights in such Submission, or have sufficient rights to submit the Content to the Service without infringing any third-party rights.  By making a Submission, you are agreeing to assign to Made to Shine, free of charge, all right, title, and interest including all related intellectual property rights, to such Submission.  Furthermore, by making a Submission, you agree to waive any and all “moral rights” or similar protections that you may hold in such Submission.

Alternatively, if a Submission cannot be legally assigned to Made to Shine, you hereby grant Made to Shine an unrestricted, royalty-free, worldwide, fully paid-up, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and license to:

5.5. Submission of Ideas or Feedback

To the extent that you submit, via the Service or otherwise, any concepts, ideas, know-how, techniques, feedback, remarks, innovations, or suggestions (collectively “Ideas”) for, by way of example and without limitation, any features or functionality for the Service, you agree that such Ideas are non-confidential and non-proprietary, and that Made to Shine shall not be liable for the disclosure of such Ideas.  You hereby grant and agree to grant to Made to Shine, under all your rights in the Ideas, an unrestricted, royalty-free, worldwide, fully paid-up, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, sublicensable and transferable right and license to incorporate, use, publish and exploit such Ideas for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, including without limitation to incorporating it on the Service or any Made to Shine product or service, without compensation, credit, or accounting to you and without further recourse by you.

6. Subscriptions

6.1. Subscription Content and Subscription Types

Made to Shine may offer you the ability to purchase a limited license (a “Subscription”), which entitles you to access additional Content (“Subscription Content”) beyond that which is available on a non-paid basis.  An Account Owner may purchase a Subscription, which may be used by a User associated with such Account Owner’s account.  A Group Leader may purchase a Subscription, which may be used by a User under such Group Leader’s supervision and, if the User is under 18 years of age, subject to authorization by their parent or legal guardian. When gift cards are available for sale, they may be purchased and redeemed for limited, non-recurring access to Subscription Content. Any and all references to a Subscription(s) in these Terms shall include both recurring subscriptions and redemptions from gift cards and promotional codes, which all provide access to the Service.

Purchased Subscriptions are recurring and will auto-renew at the beginning of each billing period, either monthly or annually in accordance with the subscription period selected by the Account Owner at the time of purchase.  Monthly recurring subscriptions auto-renew on a 30-day billing cycle.  Annually recurring subscriptions auto-renew on a 1-year billing cycle.  In the event the Account Owner signs up for a free trial, the method of payment provided may be pre-authorized during the free trial for up to the  amount of the first recurring payment; however, no charges will be made against the method of payment unless the Account Owner does not cancel prior to the end of the free trial period, at which time the first billing period will begin.  No charges will be incurred by the Account Owner if they cancel during the free trial period.  Free trials are not guaranteed and the Account Owner may be required to enter a promotional code to sign up for a free trial; free trials are reserved for first-time customers only. Once an Account Owner has completed a free trial period they are not guaranteed any additional free trial periods should they choose to resume their Subscription at a later date, and therefore may be charged immediately upon reactivation of the Subscription.

By purchasing a recurring Subscription, the Account Owner expressly agrees that Made to Shine is authorized to charge a periodic membership fee at the then current rate, and any other charges incurred in connection with the use of the Service, to the method of payment provided.  A recurring Subscription will continue to renew unless the Account Owner cancels the Subscription or Made to Shine terminates it. The Account Owner may cancel the recurring Subscription at any time. Access to the Service will terminate at the end of the billing period in which the account is cancelled. Made to Shine, however, reserves the right to terminate access post-cancellation at any time for any reason as it sees fit in its sole discretion. The Account Owner must cancel the Subscription before the automatic renewal date in order to avoid billing of the next period’s Subscription fees. To cancel, the Account Owner may login to the Service, click the “Account Management” gear icon, login a second time for security purposes, click “Subscription Details” and then follow the onscreen instructions to complete the cancellation process. The cancellation process may vary and is dependent upon how the Account Owner originally signed up for the Service, whether through the website or the relevant App store.

Occasionally, gift cards may be available for purchase and may be redeemed for limited, non-recurring access to Subscription Content. Access to the Service is granted solely to the individual redeeming the gift card, who agrees to become the Account Owner at the time of redemption. By purchasing a gift card, the purchaser expressly agrees that Made to Shine is authorized to charge the full amount for the gift card selected at the then current rate, and any other charges incurred in connection with the one-time purchase for use of the Service to the method of payment provided, and further understands that the individual who redeems the purchased gift card will be granted access to the Service at the time of redemption. Redeeming an annual gift card gives access to the Service for a 365-day period from the time of redemption. Lightgliders gift cards are sold and fulfilled using the online eCommerce service Shopify. By purchasing a gift card via this platform, the purchaser is responsible for reading and agreeing to all Terms and Conditions  associated with this third party service. All gift card sales are final and are not refundable or exchangeable under any circumstance, except as required by applicable law.  Any and all references to a Subscription(s) in these Terms shall include both recurring subscriptions and gift card redemptions, which provide access to the Service.

6.2. Purchase and Billing

In all circumstances, however, Subscriptions can be purchased only by individuals who are 18 years of age or older.  You agree that, to the extent you provide Made to Shine and/or its licensors or affiliates with any payment information, you represent that you are 18 years of age or older, are an authorized user of the chosen method of payment, and that all payment information you provide, including but not limited to your name, credit card or other payment account identifying numbers, expiration, security codes, billing address, and any other payment information will be current, complete, true and accurate.

Subscriptions may not be transferred, sold, gifted, traded, leased, sublicensed, or rented; provided, however, that a User’s immediate family member (parent, grandparent, uncle, aunt, brother, sister, son, daughter or legal guardian) may purchase a Subscription for such User’s use and benefit as a personal gift.  Made to Shine reserves the right to impose limits on the number of Subscriptions that may be purchased and gifted in this manner.

All purchases of Subscriptions are final and are not refundable or exchangeable under any circumstances, except as required by applicable law.  Subscriptions are not subject to return or redemption for money or anything of monetary value from Made to Shine or any other person or entity, except as otherwise required by applicable law.  Neither Made to Shine nor any other person or entity has any obligation to exchange a Subscription for anything of value, including, but not limited to, real currency.

You acknowledge and agree that Made to Shine may engage in actions that may impact the perceived value or purchase price, if applicable, of a Subscription or Subscription Content at any time, except as prohibited by applicable law.  Except as prohibited by applicable law, Made to Shine, in its sole discretion, has the absolute right to manage, modify, suspend, or eliminate Subscriptions or Subscription Content without notice or liability to you.

6.2.1 Mobile "In-App" Purchases

Account Managers may begin a free trial or purchase a Subscription via our website or through a third-party provider such as the iOS App Store and Google Play (“in-app”). An active free trial or Subscription is required to access the Service. In the event that you begin a free trial or purchase a Subscription “in-app,” payments will be processed through the app store from which you originally downloaded the application. In this event, you may manage your subscription and access applicable in-app purchase rules and policies directly from the app store, and any issues directly related to your Subscription or payment must be addressed with the app store. At their sole discretion, third party providers reserve the right to charge additional taxes and fees above and beyond that which Made to Shine charges for a Subscription or other services; therefore, certain prices for the same Service or product may differ depending on where you choose to complete your purchase. It is your responsibility to review and agree to any applicable third-party terms and conditions.

6.3. Limitations on License Granted by Subscription

A User who has paid for a Subscription, or has otherwise validly obtained access to Subscription Content, is a “Subscriber.”  By purchasing a Subscription, you acknowledge and agree that the purchased Subscription is a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable, limited right to access Subscription Content for your personal or educational, non-commercial use exclusively through the Service, subject to these Terms.  Access to Subscription Content is contingent on agreement and compliance with all of the Terms.  If a Subscriber fails to do so, then Made to Shine, in its sole discretion, is entitled to immediately cancel the Subscription and may remove, ban or delete that Subscriber’s account or access to the Service.

If Made to Shine offers you the ability to purchase a certain type of Subscription for a one-time payment, called a “Lifetime Subscription,” you acknowledge and agree that the duration of such Lifetime Subscription is the lifetime of the Service, and that such Lifetime Subscription shall terminate upon the discontinuation of the Service.

7. Limitations on License Granted by Subscription

Any personal or identifying information submitted through the Service (“Registration Data”) or information shared directly with Made to Shine outside of the Service, either at the time of registration or at any time thereafter, is subject to the terms in our Privacy Policy, available here, which is hereby incorporated into these Terms by reference.  You agree to the collection, use and sharing of your information as set forth in our Privacy Policy.

By using the Service, you are consenting to receive certain communications from us. For example, Made to Shine may send you notices about features, updates, and special offers. Such communications may include information about your account (e.g., change in password or payment information) or other information related to the Service. You may opt-out of communications upon request. Opting out of email communications does not in any way interfere with, cancel, or otherwise alter a Subscription.

8. Lightgliders Code of Conduct

Included in Lightgliders is an online community where Users can meet for events and hangouts. Lightgliders utilizes a safe chat feature that allows Users to interact using pre-approved words and phrases. Account Owners retain the right to restrict the User's ability to view or send safe chat. By agreeing to these Terms of Service, Account Owners consent that the safe chat feature is initially enabled for Users until the Account Owner chooses a higher level of restriction found in the account settings of the Service.

All Users of the Service must agree to follow the Lightgliders Code of Conduct (“Behavior Principles”) listed below.  In the event of any actual or perceived conflict between the Behavior Principles and the Terms, the Terms shall prevail.  You understand and agree that if you (or, if you are an Account Owner, a User associated with such account) violate the Behavior Principles, as determined by Made to Shine in its sole discretion, we reserve the right to (a) edit, remove, or delete any Content or Submission that violates the Behavior Principles or these Terms; and (b) suspend or terminate your account from the Service.  In the event that Made to Shine suspends or terminates your account for violating the Behavior Principles you agree that you are not entitled to any refund, whether in whole or in part, of any money paid in connection with your use of the Service including, but not limited to, any Subscription.

Otherwise, you are permanently barred from any cause of action relating to the alleged incident.

By using the Service, you specifically acknowledge, agree and consent that you waive your right to a trial, by jury or otherwise, and that any Dispute related to the Service (including without limitation the Licensed Application) or the Terms will be addressed using the following procedures:

If the Dispute is not resolved through the above informal negotiations, the Dispute shall be resolved by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator. Any arbitration will take place in or around St. Louis, Missouri using the English language in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Procedures of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) then in effect, by one arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and commercial contract disputes, who shall be selected from the appropriate list of AAA arbitrators.  The determination of whether a dispute is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by an arbitrator rather by a court.

The prevailing party in any arbitration or other proceeding arising under the Terms shall be entitled to receive reimbursement of its reasonable expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees, expert witness fees and all other expenses) incurred.  Judgment upon the award rendered may be entered in a court having jurisdiction or application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement. Each party shall have the right to institute an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable relief pending a final decision by the arbitrator.

Use of the Service is not authorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of the Terms, including without limitation, this Section.

You agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the claims between you and Made to Shine individually.  To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other; (b) there is no right or authority for any dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.

17. Governing Law, Jurisdiction and Venue

Any dispute between the parties arising from or relating to these Terms, whether or not subject to arbitration, will be governed by these Terms and the laws of the State of Missouri and applicable United States law, without giving effect to any conflict of laws or principles that may provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.  In the event that a Dispute between the parties arising from or relating to these Terms is not subject to arbitration, or where no election to arbitrate has been made, such Dispute shall be decided by the state and federal courts in St. Louis, Missouri.  You and Made to Shine expressly agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of, and venue before, such courts.

The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.  You agree that if you choose to access the Service from outside of the United States, other laws may apply and those laws shall affect the Terms only to the extent required by such jurisdiction.  In such a case, the Terms shall be interpreted to give maximum effect to the terms and conditions hereof.

18. Assignment

You cannot assign or transfer any of your rights or obligations under the Terms without Made to Shine’s express prior written consent. Made to Shine, in its sole discretion, may transfer or assign the Service, Users or the Terms, in whole or part, at any time. The Terms shall be binding between you and any third party and its successors to whom Made to Shine has transferred or assigned these rights.

19. Enforcement of the Terms

Made to Shine’s failure to enforce any part of the Terms is not a waiver of Made to Shine’s ability to enforce such provisions. If any part of these Terms are determined to be invalid or unenforceable, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms shall continue in effect.

20. Modification the Terms

Made to Shine may change, remove, or add to these Terms at any time. Any change, removal, or addition to the Terms is effective as soon as it is posted to the Service.
