This Contract applies to Posterity.com, other Posterity-related websites, applications, communications, programs and other services that Posterity identifies as offered under this Contract (“Services”), including the offsite collection of data for those Services. Anyone who uses, accesses, registers an account with, or otherwise agrees to be bound by this Contract, is referred to herein as a “User.”
We respect the intellectual property of others, so we ask you to do the same.

Posterity and applicable third parties, such as Posterity’s licensors, own copyright, trademark, and other rights in the Services and Materials, and reserve all rights in them.
Eligibility to Use or Access Services and Materials
From time to time Posterity may make available, and you may view, certain Materials on Posterity.com without registering to use our Services, but as a condition of viewing and using certain portions of the Services and Materials, you are required to register an account with Posterity. You shall provide accurate, complete, and up-to-date registration information. Failure to do so shall constitute a breach of the Contract, which may result in immediate termination of your account.
You are solely responsible for activity that occurs on your account and shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You shall not use another User’s account without that other User’s express permission. You will immediately notify us in writing through an email to [email protected] of any unauthorized use of your account, or any other known account-related security breach.
Posterity reserves the right to restrict, suspend or terminate your use of the Services if you breach this Contract or the law, or if Posterity determines in its discretion that you are misusing the Services in any way. In all cases Posterity reserves the right to restrict, suspend or terminate your use of Services at its sole discretion and at any time and the creation of an account or registration of information does not constitute a right or guarantee that the Services will be made available to you.
