Individuals may be invited to become a User by a Subscriber or another User. At this time, individuals may not join zaahah without being invited. Users may: – Create Invite Only Clubs, Public Clubs and Private Clubs. An Invite Only Club is the default Club type. – Accept an invitation to a Club.

zaahah has integrated search, discovery and social sharing for its Users. You may search zaahah, and zaahah will display other Users who have searched on similar topics, Clubs that may be interested in those topics, and your search history. From search results you can view the public Profile of Users of Invite Only Clubs or Public Clubs who matched your search. Private Clubs will not be displayed in search results. When you search other Users who have searched on a similar topic will may access your public Profile and have the opportunity to initiate a chat or follow you.
Users can create or join Clubs, which are typically about an activity or a common interest. Clubs can be Invite Only Clubs, Public Clubs or Private Clubs. An Invite Only Club is the default type for all Clubs. Invite Only Clubs do come up in search results. A User can request an invite to an Invite Only Club. If the User’s request is accepted, the User becomes a member of the Club. Public Clubs also come up in search results. You can join a Public Club and become a member. Private Clubs do NOT come up in search results. In order to join a Private Club, you must be invited. When a User creates a Club, the User is automatically made the Club Advisor and can invite other Users and other Club Advisors to join. For any Club created by a User other than a Subscriber-appointed Administrator, the Subscriber will not have access to or able to manage members and content added to the Club. When a User is a member of a Club, the User can add Content to the Club, comment on content, like content, and flag content, unless a Club Advisor has limited the rights of Club members to add Content. The User who is a member of a Club may also view: content added to the Club, Club About Us, Club Resources, and Club Members
8. Adding and Sharing Content.
Each Subscriber and each User represents and warrants that it has all rights necessary to provide any Content it provides to zaahah, including without limitation ownership of the Content or a written license to access, use, publish, transmit and broadcast the Content to, on and through zaahah.

10. Signup and Account Security.
With zaahah, Users are required to provide their real identity, including names and contact information. However, Users are provided multiple Profiles; personal, school, and work. Each zaahah Profile may reflect a User’s type of interaction with zaahah, and allows each User to organize Content, connections and conversation by Profile. With each Profile, a User may choose to display the User’s user-name or a nickname for that Profile. zaahah assigns each User a default Profile type. For students, the default Profile is school. For school faculty and staff, the default Profile is work. For parents and alumni, the default Profile is personal. Each User agrees to the following:
– You will not provide any false information about you, including in any Profile, regardless of whether it is personal, school or work related.
– Unless you are creating an account for you a legal dependent, you will not create an account or Profiles for another individual.

The Service is a responsive web application and is designed to work on mobile devices. We are developing native mobile applications. Users can access the Services on their mobile devices via a browser. Your mobile carrier’s charges, such as data usage apply. zaahah is not responsible for any carrier charges incurred by you If you deactivate your mobile account with your carrier, your carrier will likely re-assign you prior mobile number to a third person. Please update zaahah with 48 hours to minimize any mobile notifications being sent to the person who is assigned your prior mobile number.
12. Linking to the Service.
zaahah encourages its Subscribers and Users to include a link to zaahah on their own website or mobile application. If you link to zaahah from your website or mobile application, you are responsible for the performance of your website or mobile application. zaahah will not provide any support for your website or mobile application. You may not show any ads, search boxes or links on the Service. You will not attempt to modify the Service in any way. You may not represent yourself as having a relationship with zaahah other than that of Subscriber, User, or Administrator, if and when appropriate to do so. We may highlight your use of the Service in press releases or online materials, such as a list of schools using the Service. If the link is broken, you will immediately inform zaahah by emailing email@example.com.
zaahah’s goal is to minimize advertising and sponsored Content. But when advertisements are displayed, zaahah will provide Users the most relevant advertising possible. We encourage you to like advertisements or sponsored Content that interests you. zaahah may provide advertisers access to information about Users to help them provide Users with the most relevant information, promotions, special offers or sponsored Content. When you engage with Content, you allow zaahah to provide the advertiser with information that does not identify you (“nonpersonal information”), such as sex, age range and city, and you allow the advertiser to forward you a message, a promotion or special offer through the Services. If you choose to respond to the advertiser and give them your personally-identifiable information (“personal information”), then they may contact you directly. You acknowledge that zaahah is not a party to these communications or transactions and assumes no responsibility, of any kind, related to such interactions. If you are self-employed, and have no employees or contractors working for you, then you may promote yourself, your products and your services via a Club you create that is clearly identified as your business (a “Business Club”). This provides you the ability to reach an audience (Club members) that you build. However, you may add or share the Business Club content with any User who is not a member of the Business Club, or with any other Club. If you own, operate or work with a business that does not qualify for a Business Club, you are not allowed to promote your products or services, in any manner, on any Club or to any User without first signing zaahah’s future Advertiser or Business Partner Agreement.
14. Allegations of Copyright Infringement (DMCA).
zaahah respects the intellectual property rights of others and requires that Subscribers, Administrators, Club Advisors and Users do the same. Any person who believes that any Content on the Services or otherwise associated with the Services infringes that person’s copyright or the copyright of another person or organization may notify our agent designated under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. §512) (the “DMCA”) to respond to such concerns, via postal mail, email or via the website. Each notice requesting the removal of Content must comply with the provisions of the DMCA (a “Takedown Notice” as defined in the DMCA). Upon receipt of a compliant takedown notice, we will respond and proceed in accordance with the DMCA. In addition, in accordance with the DMCA, we will notify the person or entity responsible for the allegedlyinfringing material, and person or entity may request that we restore the material to public view (a “Counter Notice” as defined in the DMCA). Our contact information for a Takedown Notice or Counter Notice is StartUP Productions LLC, Attn: DMCA, 1829 Pine Street #202, Philadelphia, PA 19103, U.S.A. or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org .

No party will be deemed in default of these Terms to the extent that performance of their obligations or attempts to cure any breach are delayed or prevented by reason of any acts of God, fire, natural disaster, accident, war, riot, act of government or civil or military authorities, or any other unforeseen circumstance or cause beyond the reasonable control of such party (“Force Majeure”).
