The inclusion of any link to such sites does not imply endorsement by Africa Mbele of the sites. Africa Mbele makes no representations whatsoever about any other sites which you may access through Africa Mbele.
These limitations apply even if there is negligence on the part of Africa Mbele Entities or an authorized Africa Mbele representative has been advised of the possibility of such damages, or both.
Any purchases through the Materials or on the Sites are through third-party providers and are subject to the terms and conditions set forth on such corresponding sites. Any dispute must be resolved directly with the third-party provider.
Africa Mbele service marks, trademarks, trade names, or logos are registered in the United States and, to the extent used outside the United States, in other countries. All rights reserved. Other trademarks or trade names displayed in the Materials, on the Sites, or through links to other sites are the property of the respective trademark owners.
Subject to these Terms, Third Party Sites that meet the requirements set forth herein may place a Share Link (as described below), in the form approved by Africa Mbele and with the written consent of Africa Mbele, on pages of their Web sites to facilitate the use of the Share Service. A Third Party Site that posts a Share Link on its Web site(s) (each an “Online Content Provider”) shall abide by and be subject to the applicable sections of these Terms. A “Share Link” is a button and/or a text link appearing on an Online Content Provider’s web page that, upon being clicked by a User, enables us to launch a sharing mechanism through which Users can share with others or post to their own member profile, links and content from that page.
If the Share Link is a button that contains any icons or other graphic images, trademarks, or other proprietary materials of Africa Mbele, Online Content Provider is granted permission to use such images, trademarks, or other materials solely for the purpose of placing the Share Link on Online Content Provider’s site and solely in the current form provided by Africa Mbele. The rights granted in this paragraph may be revoked by Africa Mbele at any time with or without cause in its sole discretion, and upon such termination, Online Content Provider agrees to immediately remove all Share Links from its site. No such link shall be deemed to be an endorsement of the material, products, services, or content of the third-party Provider.
In order for an Online Content Provider to include a Share Link on its pages, the Third Party Site must not contain any web content that if shared or posted by a User would be a violation of these Terms. Without limiting the foregoing, Online Content Provider agrees not to post a Share Link on any Web site(s) that contains, and represents and warrants that such Web site(s) does not and will not contain, any content that is infringing, harmful, threatening, unlawful, defamatory, abusive, inflammatory, harassing, vulgar, obscene, lewd, fraudulent, or invasive of privacy or publicity rights or that may expose Africa Mbele or its Users to any harm or liability of any type. Upon including a Share Link, Online Content Provider agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Africa Mbele, and each of their directors, officers, agents, contractors, partners, and employees, harmless from and against any loss, liability, claim, demand, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, arising out of or in connection with such Share Link, any links, content or other items or materials which may be shared or posted through such Share Link, or any breach or alleged breach of the foregoing representations and warranties.
By including a Share Link, Online Content Provider automatically grants, represents, and warrants that it has the right to grant, to Africa Mbele an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid, worldwide license (with the right to sublicense) to use the Share Service in order to link to, use, copy, publish, stream, publicly perform, publicly display, reformat, translate, excerpt (in whole or in part), summarize, and distribute the content, links and other materials of any kind residing on any web pages on which Online Content Provider places the Share Link.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with respect to this subject matter and supersedes all previous written or oral agreements between the parties with respect to the such subject matter.
This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia, United States of America, without regard to its conflict of laws roles. If any part of these Terms is unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. “Includes”, “including” and other similar terms are deemed to include “without limitation” immediately thereafter, and any specification of the Site as part of the Materials is purely to provide clear meaning and does not imply that other references to Materials exclude the Sites.
These Terms are also for the benefit of Africa Mbele Entities, each of which may assert and enforce such provisions directly or on its own behalf.
