Terms of Service

 

Terms of Use

County Happenings is a full service Web site created to be your source for events in many different local areas. By using the site you are agreeing to the Terms of Use. Please read these Terms of Use carefully before using the Web site. If you do not accept these Terms of Use, we understand and know that you may not choose to use our site.

Users

Anyone can utilize the Web site without becoming a user. However, if you want to list any events on the site we require you to become a user and login (i.e., signing up with a name, email and password). You must provide a valid e-mail address when you register and you will need to validate your email in before using the site. You are responsible for the security of your password and will be  liable for any use or unauthorized use.

Your License

County Happenings was created to let you share information about fun and exciting things to do locally. You can share and upload photos, text, and other information (all of which we call "Content"). This is your own Content that you hereby grant County Happenings a perpetual license to use, republish, copy, perform and distribute your Content and screen name, including any intellectual property contained therein, in any medium now known or hereinafter developed without payment or compensation to you and without seeking any further approval from you.  We are not required to seek your approval or provide you with any compensation in connection with such uses. By using the Web site you agree that nothing contained within your Content would require us to seek permission of a third party in order to use the Content as described in these Terms of Use. 

Use of the Service

Individuals, organizations and businesses, may use this service for personal and non-commercial purposes. Meaning: You cannot use the Web site to make a living unless you enter into a separate agreement with us that says you can.

The Web site contains information on venues, public events, as well as feature stories, images, video, and other materials, all of which have been uploaded by individuals, businesses and organizations using the site. If there is any concerns about any information on the site please contact County Happenings right away via email - support@countyhappenings.com.

County Happenings is strictly for upcoming events. Our version of an event is something that happens once. Meaning: Your event should not be a class or program or service that continually happens throughout a course of time. A yoga class that happens once a week is not an event. However, a grand opening at a new Yoga facility would be an event that should be listed. Each event needs to be approved so we can determine if you are following our Terms of Use, and not listing an event that, quite frankly, isn't something we would want to be associated with. 

Each event you list, once activated, will be able to be seen online by anyone coming to the site. It should be searchable in the categories you have chosen, the city you selected, venue, etc. You should make sure that you are the only one listing the event so there are not multiple listings of the same event. We will try to watch over this too. Each event you list will only be able to be seen online until the date of the event. Since we are not worried about yesterday's events, you will not be able to see them. You may however, be able to search by a past date and find it. And if you listed the event you should see it in your event listings as a past event. Try to use this to remind you of events you have already listed and ones that repeat each year.

If you choose to have your event become a featured event, you will be prompted to purchase through your credit card. If you want to purchase several weeks at a time, you can contact tracey@studio-communications.com. Once you purchase a featured event using your credit card, your sale is final. For any problems with your purchase, contact tracey@studio-communications.com 

By using the Web site you agree that you will not hold County Happenings responsible or liable for any Content from other users that you access on the site.

You are solely responsible for the Content that you post on the site or transmit to other users. Without limitation, you agree that you will not post or transmit to other users anything that contains Content that:

  • is inaccurate, false or misleading in any way;
  • is illegal or promotes any illegal activities;
  • promotes illegal or unauthorized copying of another person's copyrighted work or links to them or providing information to circumvent security measures;

  • infringes or violates another party's intellectual property rights (such as music, videos, photos or other materials for which you do not have written authority from the owner of such materials to post on the Service);
  • violates any party’s right of publicity or right of privacy;

We do our best to keep tabs on what is posted on the site, however County Happenings is under no obligation to screen or monitor Content, but will review Content from time to time at its sole discretion to determine compliance with the Terms of Use. 

You're out!

We can determine which events will be able to be listed and which cannot. We have full ability to take down your event at any time for whatever reason we want. We can also take down photos that you have uploaded. If you feel a user is misusing the site and we have not caught them, please feel free to tattle on them to us.
