B. Acceptable Use
1. Compliance with Laws and Regulations
Your use of the Website and the Service must not violate any applicable laws, including copyright or trademark laws, export control laws, or other laws in your jurisdiction. You are responsible for making sure that your use of the Service is in compliance with laws and any applicable regulations.

4. Services Usage Limits
You agree not to reproduce, duplicate or copy any portion of the Website or the Service, and not to sell, resell or exploit use of or access to the Website or the Service, without Paste.ac's express prior written permission. Nor will you use any Content (other than Your Content) for any purpose other than your own personal or internal business, specifically excluding any creation of products or services to make available to others without our express prior written permission. For avoidance of doubt, any permission we may grant will in all cases exclude the ability to publish, redistribute, or otherwise make any Content available to third parties (as distinguished from a cybersecurity, anti-counterfeiting, other similar product or tool you may develop using Content but that does not itself result in redistribution of the Content) unless you have written permission to do so directly from the User who posted the Content.
B. User-Generated Content
1. Responsibility for User-Generated Content
You may create or upload User-Generated Content while using the Service. You are solely responsible for the Content of, and for any harm resulting from, any User-Generated Content that you post, upload, link to or otherwise make available via the Website or Service, regardless of the form of that Content. We are not responsible for any public display or misuse of your User-Generated Content.
2. Paste.ac May Remove Content
We do not pre-screen User-Generated Content, but we have the right (though not the obligation) to refuse or remove any User-Generated Content that, in our sole discretion, violates any Paste.ac terms or policies or that we otherwise deem inappropriate in our discretion.
3. Ownership of Content, Right to Post, and License Grants
You retain ownership of and responsibility for Content you create, upload or own ("Your Content"). If you're posting anything you did not create yourself or do not own the rights to, you agree that you are responsible for any Content you post; that you will only submit Content that you have the right to post; and that you will fully comply with any third party licenses relating to Content you post.
4. License Grant to Us
We need the legal right to do things like host Your Content, publish it, and share it. You grant us and our legal successors the right to store, parse, and display Your Content, and make incidental copies as necessary to make the Website available and provide the Service. This includes the right to do things like copy it to our database and make backups; show it to you and other users; parse it into a search index or otherwise analyze it on our servers; share it with other users per these Terms, including to allow others to create private or commercial cyber-security, anti-counterfeiting and other products and services pursuant to these Terms (but not to redistribute or republish Your Content without your separate permission).
5. License Grant to Other Users
Any User-Generated Content you post publicly may be viewed by others. By setting your pastes to be viewed publicly, you agree that you are allowing and authorizing other Users to not only to view your pastes, but you also are granting each User of the Website and the Service (as well as Paste.ac itself) a nonexclusive, worldwide license to:
1. Confidentiality of Hidden pastes
Paste.ac considers the contents of hidden pastes to be confidential to you. Paste.ac will protect the contents of hidden pastes from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure in the same manner that we would use to protect our own confidential information of a similar nature and in no event with less than a reasonable degree of care. Please understand, however, that no security can guaranty against possible unauthorized disclosure or access, and no guarantee is made that hidden pastes may not become accessible to unauthorized third parties.
If we have reason to believe the contents of a hidden paste are in violation of the law or of these Terms, we have the right to access, review, and remove them. Additionally, we may be compelled by law to disclose the contents of your hidden pastes.
E. Copyright Infringement and DMCA Policy
If you believe that content on our Website violates your copyright, please contact us in accordance with our Digital Millennium Copyright Act Policy. If you are a copyright owner and you believe that content on the Website violates your rights, please contact us via our convenient DMCA form or by emailing dmca@Paste.ac. There may be legal consequences for sending a false or frivolous takedown notice. Before sending a takedown request, you must consider legal uses such as fair use and licensed uses.
F. Limitation of Liability
You understand and agree that we will not be liable to you or any third party for any loss of profits, use, goodwill, or data, or for any incidental, indirect, special, consequential or exemplary damages, however arising, that result from
Our liability is limited whether or not we have been informed of the possibility of such damages, and even if a remedy set forth in this Agreement is found to have failed of its essential purpose. We will have no liability for any failure or delay due to matters beyond our reasonable control. Some states do not allow exclusion of certain types of warranties or damages, so some of the above limitations may not apply to you.
G. Changes to These Terms
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to amend these Terms of Service at any time and will update these Terms of Service in the event of any such amendments. Your continued use of the Website or Service after the effective date of a change constitutes agreement to our revisions of these Terms of Service.
