These Terms cover your access and use of Launch.menu and apply to all visitors, users, and others who access the Service (“Users”). Before you begin, please take a moment to review these Terms and the current launch.menu/privacy-policywhich is incorporated in these Terms. It is important that you understand both the benefits we provide, as well as our limitations. THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS DISCLAIMERS AND OTHER PROVISIONS THAT LIMIT OUR LIABILITY TO YOU.
You represent and warrant for the benefit of Launch.menu, Launch.menu’s suppliers, and any third parties mentioned on the service that you possess the legal right and ability to enter into, or if you are acting on behalf of a company or entity that you have the authority to bind such entity, and make the representations and warranties contained in these Terms. You may not use Launch.menu and you may not accept these Terms if you are not of a legal age to form a binding contract with Launch.menu.
Objectives of Launch.menu
Our objective is to help individual and business users store bookmarks, and find and act upon their content in cloud-based services.

You may use your Account Settings to control your User profile.
You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. You must notify Launch.menu immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. Although Launch.menu will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you shall be liable for the losses of Launch.menu or others due to such unauthorized use.

When you register for permanent opt-out, you provide us with a validated e-mail address at which you no longer wish to receive Launch.menu emails. If necessary, we will send you an opt-out confirmation e-mail to the address you entered. This information will only be used to honor your opt-out request and will not be shared with any third-party.
Account Information from Third Party Sites
With the Service, Users may direct Launch.menu to retrieve their own information maintained online by third-party service providers with which they have customer relationships or maintain accounts (“Account Information”). Launch.menu works with one or more online service providers under contract to access this Account Information. Launch.menu makes no effort to review the Account Information for any purpose, including but not limited to accuracy, legality or non-infringement. Launch.menu is not responsible for the products and services offered by or on third-party sites.
Launch.menu cannot always foresee or anticipate technical or other difficulties which may result in failure to obtain data or loss of data, personalization settings or other service interruptions. Launch.menu cannot assume responsibility for the timeliness, accuracy, deletion, non-delivery or failure to store any user data, communications or personalization settings. For example, when displayed through the Service, Account Information is only as fresh as the time shown, which reflects when the information is obtained from such sites. Such information may be more up-to-date when obtained directly from the relevant sites.
This Service is intended solely for Users who are thirteen (13) years of age or older, and any registration, use or access to the Service by anyone under 13 is unauthorized, unlicensed, and in violation of these Terms. Launch.menu may terminate your account, delete any content or information that you have posted on the Service, and/or prohibit you from using or accessing the Service (or any portion, aspect or feature of the Service) for any reason, at any time in its sole discretion, with or without notice, including without limitation if it believes that you are under 13. If you are under 18 years of age you may use the Service only if you either are an emancipated minor, or possess legal parental or guardian consent, and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set forth in these Terms, and to abide by and comply with these Terms.

Use of the Service for any purpose not set forth in these Terms or for commercial purposes is strictly prohibited. The terms of the license will also govern any upgrades provided by Launch.menu that replace and/or supplement the original Service unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate license, in which case the terms of that license will govern.

When you add an account to Launch.menu, for most of the services we use a technology called OAuth to authorize Launch.menu to access that account.

You can revoke OAuth access either within Launch.menu or within the third party account. Users may revoke access at any time and Launch.menu will completely delete all records of the password.
By adding a Service on Launch.menu, you are giving Launch.menu the right to use OAuth or your password, as applicable, for the purpose of providing the Service.
