6. Billing Administrators and Responsibilities
Our subscription services include accounts specifically for administration of our customers’ accounts. These accounts are referred to as “Billing Administrators.”
Billing Administrators are responsible for first-level support to the people on their Idea Pipeline Account or subscription. If you have an issue with your Idea Pipeline Service, contact your Administrator(s) first.
We continuously update our documentation so that users can help themselves and Billing Administrators are better equipped to help their users.
We take pride in providing excellent customer support, but we are also a small team and value our work/life balance. This means that although we’ll try our best, we do not guarantee 24/7 support.
In the event of failed payment, cancellation of a subscription, or no payment for a trial account, the Service will become inactive. The Billing Administrator, who is solely responsible, can cancel their subscription Service at any time directly within Idea Pipeline. An email or phone request to cancel a subscription is not considered cancellation.
In some instances, we will keep the inactive Service account for at least 30 days before deleting it from our system. This includes free accounts with no activity in the past 12 months, which will be deemed inactive and subject to deletion. We reserve the right to delete or cancel any accounts in accordance with other provisions of this TOU.
Additionally, we reserve the right to discontinue the Idea Pipeline Services at any time. In this event, Idea Pipeline will announce an End-Of-Life date on the Idea Pipeline website. For subscription Services, the End-Of-Life date will be at least 12 months after the announcement date. Idea Pipeline will honor the terms of this Agreement until the End-Of-Life date. Should an Owner’s paid subscription exceed the End-Of-Life date, Idea Pipeline will offer a refund for any unused time. At the End-Of-Life date, this Agreement will terminate.
7. Advertisement Release
Idea Pipeline takes no responsibility for advertisements or any third-party material posted on or transmitted through the Service, nor does it take any responsibility for the products or services provided by other service providers with Content on the Service (“Advertisers”). Any dealings you have with Advertisers found while using the Service are between you and the Advertiser, and you agree that Idea Pipeline is not liable for any loss or claim that you may have against an Advertiser.
YOU AGREE THAT YOU BEAR ALL RISK AND YOU AGREE TO RELEASE THE IDEA PIPELINE PARTIES FROM CLAIMS, DEMANDS, AND DAMAGES (ACTUAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL) OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, NOW AND IN THE FUTURE, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE AND YOUR TRANSACTIONS WITH ADVERTISERS OR OTHER THIRD PARTIES. YOU FURTHER WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHTS AND BENEFITS OTHERWISE CONFERRED BY ANY STATUTORY OR NON-STATUTORY LAW OF ANY JURISDICTION THAT WOULD PURPORT TO LIMIT THE SCOPE OF A RELEASE OR WAIVER. YOU WAIVE AND RELINQUISH ALL RIGHTS AND BENEFITS WHICH YOU HAVE OR MAY HAVE UNDER SECTION 1542 OF THE CIVIL CODE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA OR ANY SIMILAR PROVISION OF THE STATUTORY OR NON-STATUTORY LAW OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE STATES OF MISSOURI, DELAWARE AND PENNSYLVANIA) TO THE FULL EXTENT THAT YOU MAY LAWFULLY WAIVE ALL SUCH RIGHTS AND BENEFITS.
8. User Submissions
User Materials to Customers and Administrators
The Idea Pipeline platform is purpose-built to allow users to submit ideas to their affiliated organizations, which are Our paying, contracted customers (“Customers”). Such ideas include text, images, photographs, graphics, know-how, ideas, concepts, techniques, and other related concepts. Such submissions, when directed within the platform to the users’ affiliated organization are not User Submissions (defined below), but rather “User Materials.” Idea Pipeline does not claim intellectual property rights in User Materials.
We encourage Administrators to make their intellectual property policies clear to their users. Our Customers and Administrators may claim and control the intellectual property for User Materials. Customers and Administrators acknowledge and agree that Idea Pipeline has no liability of any kind should anyone they grant access to their instance modifies, destroys, corrupts, copies or distributes, or violates the TOU or other limitations that Customers or Administrators may impose on the use of User Materials.
Idea Pipeline does not pre-screen User Materials that users provide or otherwise submit via the Services; however, Idea Pipeline may remove any posted or submitted User Materials from the Services for any reason without notice in its sole discretion. By posting or submitting your User Materials, you represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control all of the intellectual property rights and other rights to your User Materials as described in these TOU, including all the rights necessary for you to post or submit your User Materials.
In addition, by posting or otherwise submitting your User Materials that contain images, photographs, pictures, videos, webcasts or that are otherwise graphical in whole or in part (“Images”), you represent and warrant that: (a) you own the copyright in such Images, or that you have obtained all necessary license(s) from the copyright owner(s) of such Images to use such Images, or portions thereof, in your use in connection with the Services and as otherwise permitted by these Terms of Service; (b) in the event you choose to grant licenses and sublicenses to such Images, you have the rights necessary to grant the licenses and sublicenses described in these TOU; and (c) you have received consent from any and all persons depicted in such Images to use the Images as set forth in these TOU, including the distribution, public display, public performance and reproduction of such Images.
You are solely and entirely responsible for all of your User Materials that you post or otherwise submit via the Services.

Idea Pipeline does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of User Materials. You acknowledge and agree that by accessing or using the Services, you may be exposed to User Materials from others that are offensive, indecent or otherwise objectionable. IDEA PIPELINE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH USER MATERIALS.
User Submissions directly to Idea Pipeline
You may submit feedback, notes, messages, ideas, concepts, know-how, techniques, or other communications directly to Idea Pipeline (“User Submissions”). By submitting any such materials, you represent and warrant that you will not submit or post material that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third-party proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner to submit or post the material and to grant Idea Pipeline all of the license rights granted herein. In addition, you agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and other payments owed to any party by reason of your posting or submitting User Submissions. IDEA PIPELINE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH USER SUBMISSIONS.
On Idea Pipeline’ social media sites, you further represent and warrant that you have the permission of any individuals depicted in photographs, videos or recordings that you submit to the Service to use their likeness and/or voice, as well as all other legal rights necessary to grant the license below to Idea Pipeline.

For the avoidance of doubt, User Materials are not User Submissions and the license grant in this paragraph does not apply to User Materials.
You also agree that immediately upon the creation by or on behalf of Idea Pipeline of any derivative works from, modifications, edits or other changes to the User Submissions (the “Modified Content”), the Modified Content will become the sole and exclusive property of Idea Pipeline and that we will own the entire right, title and interest in and to the Modified Content, including the right to secure copyright registration for the Modified Content and to otherwise use the Modified Content for any purpose as determined by Idea Pipeline in its sole discretion.
