The ADBOOK LLC sites are currently offered in an initial phase of development as a BETA test prior to a full and final version The BETA Test is inherently less complete or stable than a full and final release will be.  There is no representation as to the completeness, fitness, use of function for any particular use and none should any be relied on.  If you are reading this you agree to be a BETA test user under the terms set forth below.  The BETA test terms are hereby made a part of these Terms Of Service.

You are provided with a unique URL name.  The URL we create has your name.letssponsor.com such as http://yourname.letssponsor.com/home.  This enables you to create a customized site and pages with your own name.  You can hyperlink your name or pages into emails or web sites to link your 3rd party clients in order to raise money or link direct to any page on your web site.  We own and retain all rights to that domain name.  Each of the domain names created by us for you are our Copywrite property and we retain all rights to the name and content we assign to you.  The name you create must use your own name and should not be false or deceptive.  We do not guarantee the security of the web site we create for you.  We do not guarantee that any name may be available to you.  We reserve common names to ourselves. You are required to create a unique name for each event site you create.  You may create more than one account, and we hope you do, but each site must have its own unique name.  We retain the right to suspend or delete your site name if you violate the Terms Of Use or if any of your 3rd party users posts content that violate the Public Terms Of Use that governs 3rd parties use your site.  We do not retain the content of the web site we create for you and thus, if your site or account is terminated you will loose all of the content in part or in total.  We keep no archive of information to retrieve or recover from.

 

The system allows for you to charge for ads, personal profiles or pictures or to turn off the payment function.  The system we create for you allows you to put in payment levels, colors, titles and amounts to raise money however you designate.  You, and not us, are liable for the title, color and amount of any level of giving, or none at all.  We do not advise or suggest giving levels, prices, titles or colors and those are your sole responsibility.  We do take a percentage of dollars raised.  Although you may post any prices you want they may not be below $10.00.  You are not permitted to circumvent charging for levels by pricing levels at less than $10.00.  We do not guarantee that you will raise any money for any reason through using the site we provide for you.  The price levels you select may bear a direct impact on the amount of money you may raise.  Use your judgment on the rates you charge.  Although we take a percentage of the amount raised we make no suggestion or representations on rates you charge.  We believe that the more you promote your site the more likely it is to raise more money.  We are not obligated to promote your site at all.

 

The system sends out a receipt to end-users when there is a transaction.  You, and not we, are responsible for the automatically sent message and its content.  Although the system is set up with a default transaction details in that message, you should alter that blank message to customize your name and any information.  We recommend, but are not liable, that you include the following notice at the foot of every message:  “Note: There may be some delay to post or reviews your item. We reserve the right to not post items if deemed improper for any reason. Nevertheless, the contribution is not subject to return or refund. Payments are deemed earned at the time submitted. Refer to terms of use.” And such is the case.  A copy of your message to end-users is CC’d to you if you insert your CC email address.  We do not retain a copy.  The email confirmation is set up to read “Powered by Lets Sposor.com” as a default.  You may keep or delete this footnote as you wish.  We prefer you keep the “Powered by LetsSponsor.com” footnote.  We are not liable for any content of the message and any message that you allow to set up and send out is strictly your own.

 

This TOS is directed toward you as both the client of the Company and also the client’s 3rd party end user.  However the client, with control of their own Sub Admin administrative site shall at all times post the Company’s separate public and 3rd party Terms of Service (3rd party TOS) and Privacy Policy (3rd party Privacy Policy) provided from time to time by the Company.  Those 3rd party TOS and 3rd party Privacy Policies are provided to protect and defend both your client site as well as the Company.  Prior to any change of the 3rd party TOS or 3rd party Privacy Policy provided by the Company the client, you, must obtain written consent by the President/CEO of the Company in each instance.

 

To subscribe to other or new Company web pages, you may or may not be able to subscribe separately at each new web page while using the same or different account, name, user ID and or password.  In any event this TOU will rule and govern you, by what ever name and to the greatest extent.

 

You understand and agree that the service may include “ads” or “advertisement” as generally defined in the US Patents No. 8,055,538 and 7,949,566, including statements of affinity, commercial or non-commercial advertisements.  The use of the words “ad” or “advertisement” may have the meaning defined in those patents as well as their common use.  You understand that the actual cost of an ad may not be equal to its commercial or fair market value and that those ads, as used in this system and may have their own intrinsic, personal or charitable value that is different than any other ad of its type or similar. You understand and agree that listing price, name, color or position of postings in the site may or may not be based on your definition and or the payer’s payment.  The client or 3rd party may use the system to create or combine pricing levels such that the more you contribute, the higher or more notable, more recent, valuable your position and or more colorful ad or the public listing you have subscribed to as a 3rd party.  The Company makes no representation as to the position, color, price, priority or features such as name, color position prices or pricing of any particular service by the user to the public 3rd party user to be located in any particular place or ranking in any web site.

 

The system is designed such that you can enter an ad or profile at a zero cost, despite the fact that it may also be promoted at a dollar value.  Thus, in one instance you can define a giving level for, say $500, and then you can switch the price to zero.  Yet you can put in an ad at any price or no price at all.  There is no rule governing what price or price level you need to put in and you can change that at will, even if a 3rd party user has entered payment at another, then current, rate.  One use of this system is so that you can, from time to time, create the level at zero to put in an ad or profile where you have received payment outside the system or for a sponsor or person who has given in another way or whom you do not wish to charge, and then switch it back to the prior price for others.  There is nothing in the system to prevent you from adding sponsorships or profiles or photos at a zero price or changing it from time to time.  We do not get paid a percentage and you do not get paid through our system for ads entered at a zero price.  You may not want us paid by some or all 3rd party ads, profiles or photos and thus you may collect payment outside our system.   We may some day review or revise that policy or pricing.

 

Currently we offer our system for free, except for a percentage fee for transactions conducted through the site.  However, the length of time that you may use your site for free (except for our transaction fees) is limited to six (6) months, after which time we may charge you a hosting or maintenance fee or we can terminate, disconnect or take down your site.  We may terminate, disconnect or take down your site if it is inactive for more than 30 days.   We may extend your site for any length of time if we so wish, bearing in mind that you can turn off any pages any time effectively rendering your site moot.
