attempt to disrupt or tamper with Paste.ac's servers in ways that could harm our Website or Service, to place undue burden on Paste.ac's servers through automated means, or to access Paste.ac's Service in ways that exceed your authorization (other than those authorized by the Paste.ac Bug Bounty program, which you can learn about by contacting us at dev@paste.ac);

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 permission to do so directly from the User who posted the Content.

We are not responsible for any public display or misuse of your User-Generated Content.

2. Paste.ac May Remove Content

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:

(a) use, display, and perform Your Content through the Website and the Service and to reproduce Your Content on the Website or through the Service as permitted or enabled through the Website’s or the Services functionality (for example, through cloning, embedding, or other similar tools offered on the Website), and:

1. Confidentiality of Hidden pastes

Hidden pastes are pastes that are set not to be visible anywhere on this site, nor will they be indexed by search engines. No one can access the hidden paste, except those who know the access link. If you never share the access link with anyone, only you can see this paste.

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.

2. Exclusions

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

the use, disclosure, or display of your User-Generated Content;
your use or inability to use the Website or the Service;
any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Website or the Service;
the Website or the Service generally or the software or systems that make the the Website or the Service available;
unauthorized access to or alterations of your transmissions or data;
statements or conduct of any third party on the Website or the Service;
any other user interactions that you input or receive through your use of the Website or the Service; or
any other matter relating to the the Website or the Service.

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.

We reserve the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Website (or any part of it) with or without notice.
