MySciFiStories.com does not believe that any form of expression should be censored and that freedom of expression is very important for the creation of content and the development of authors’ writing skills.

Any characters engaged in sexual situations must be aged eighteen or older.

GOVERNING LAW/WAIVER OF INJUNCTIVE RELIEF:

These Terms of Use and all aspects of the Website and Apps will be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the United States and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts governing contracts entered into and to be fully performed in Massachusetts (i.e., without regard to conflict of laws provisions) regardless of your location. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to informal dispute resolution or arbitration (as set forth below), you agree not to commence or prosecute any action in connection therewith other than in the state or federal courts located in Massachusetts, and you hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non-conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts located in Massachusetts.

To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to these Terms of Use ("Dispute"), Member and MySciFiStories.com agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one person to the other. You will send your notice to MySciFiStories.com, LLC (ATTENTION: LEGAL DEPARTMENT), 25 HillCrest Road, Waltham, MA 02451. If Member and MySciFiStories.com are unable to resolve a Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) through informal negotiations within 30 days, either Member or MySciFiStories.com may elect to have the Dispute finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party will be final and binding on the other. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration will be commenced and conducted under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “Rules”) of JAMS, which is available at the JAMS website www.jamsadr.com. The determination of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be governed by the Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms of Use, Member and MySciFiStories.com may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

Member and MySciFiStories.com agree that any arbitration will be limited to the Dispute between MySciFiStories.com and Member individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration will be joined with any other; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.

Disputes not subject to the above provisions: Member and MySciFiStories.com agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of Member’s or MySciFiStories.com’s intellectual property rights; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief.

WAIVER/SEVERABILITY:

The failure of MySciFiStories.com to require or enforce strict performance by you of any provision of these Terms of Use or to exercise any right under them will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of MySciFiStories.com's right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance.

Member and MySciFiStories.com agree that if any portion of these Terms of Use, except any portion of “Disputes not subject to the Governing Law/Waiver of Injunctive Relief” section, is found illegal or unenforceable, in whole or in part by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision will, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such determination of invalidity or unenforceability without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without affecting the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use, which will continue to be in full force and effect. If any portion of “Disputes not subject to the Governing Law/Waiver of Injunctive Relief” is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Member nor MySciFiStories.com will be compelled to arbitrate a Dispute falling within that portion found to be illegal or unenforceable, and such Dispute will be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and Member and MySciFiStories.com agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

TERM AND TERMINATION:

These Terms of Use remain effective between you and MySciFiStories.com until terminated by either party, as follows: Member may terminate its rights and obligations under these Terms of Use (except those which, by their terms, survive termination) by contacting MySciFiStories.com to cancel their membership and destroying all materials obtained from the Website, MySciFiStories.com, the App, or any other website or source. The rights and privileges granted to you under these Terms of Use will terminate immediately and automatically without notice from MySciFiStories.com if, in our sole discretion, you fail to comply with any term or provision of these Terms of Use or for any reason in MySciFiStories.com’s sole discretion.

IS INFORMATION SUBMITTED TO THE PUBLIC AREAS OF THE WEBSITE PRIVATE?

No. Any information shared in the public areas of the Website is available to all Members. Such information is not protected or treated as confidential, can be used in any manner, and is not subject to this Privacy Policy. If you wish to keep any information private or proprietary, do not submit it to the public areas of the Website, which include, but are not limited to, the Professional Member’s blog, Member’s blog, Website’s forum section, comment sections of submitted works, and your user profile page. WE HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY IF A MEMBER’S INFORMATION OR IDENTITY IS MISUSED OR STOLEN, OR IF A MEMBER SUFFERS HARM AS A RESULT OF VOLUNTARY DISCLOSURES.

ARE SUBMISSIONS TO THE WEBSITE PRIVATE?

The personal information provided in the registration process, such as a member’s physical address or actual name, is private. However, all stories, reviews, art, comments, feedback, suggestions, ideas, and other submissions or content disclosed, submitted, or offered by Members in connection with use of the Website, including without limitation by email to MySciFiStories.com (collectively, "Submissions"), shall be freely and permanently usable by MySciFiStories.com, including in any public manner, without restriction, without compensation, and with or without identifying you as the creator of the Submissions, even if such Submissions contain a Website Member’s or other person’s personally identifiable information. If you wish to keep any information private or proprietary, do not include it in Submissions.

IS A USER PROFILE PRIVATE?

No. As noted above, public user profiles are part of the public area of the Website. All information included in a Member’s public user profile, such as user name and biography, or that is included in the Website by virtue of a Member’s Submissions to the Website, such as a Member’s stories posted to a public area, is available to all members. When prompted to create a user name and user profile, we advise members to use non-personally identifiable information – i.e., select a screen name that is not similar to a member’s actual name – because such information is publicly available to all members.

DOES MYSCIFISTORIES.COM COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE?

We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. The Website and or Apps are not designed for or directed to children under the age of 13. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know is under the age of 13.

HOW WE RESPOND TO DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS

The term “Do Not Track” refers to a HTTP header offered by certain web browsers to request that websites refrain from tracking the user. Most web browsers allow the users to browse a website in a Do Not Track mode. Since this Website uses Member information to provide the best Website experience to our Members, MySciFiStories.com does not respond to a Do Not Track signal from web browsers. See “What Does MySciFiStories.com Do With The Information It Collects?” below, as to how MySciFiStories.com uses the collected information. We do not allow third-party trackers to collect information about our Members, except as set forth in this Privacy Policy. See “When Does MySciFiStories.com Disclose Information To Third Parties?”, below.

WHAT DOES MYSCIFISTORIES.COM DO WITH THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS?

In general, we use the information collected on the Website to provide the Website to Members and process Members’ transactions, to help us understand who uses the Website, for internal operations such as to improve the Website, for income tax reporting and related purposes, and to contact Members for customer service and billing purposes.

We may use a Website Member’s information to send a welcoming email that may confirm the Member’s user name and password. Without requiring the Member to “opt-in”, we may send the Member electronic newsletters, contact the Member about products, services, information and news that may be of interest to the Member, and provide the Member with targeted feedback. If you no longer desire to receive these communications, we will provide you with the option to change your preferences. In addition, if a Member identifies himself/herself to us by sending us an email with questions or comments, we may use the Member’s information (including personally identifiable information) to respond to the Member’s questions or comments, and we may file such questions or comments (with your information) for future reference. We may also use the information collected to send important service announcements and updates regarding the Website or, if applicable, about billing account status. You will not be able to unsubscribe from these service announcements and updates as they contain important information relevant to your use of the Website.

We may also use the information gathered on the Website to perform statistical analysis of Member behavior or to evaluate and improve the Website. We may link some of this information to personally identifiable information for internal purposes only or to improve Members’ experience with the Website.

Submissions from Members, including Submissions that contain personally identifiable information, are public information and not subject to this Privacy Policy. See the section “Are Submissions to the Website Private?” above.

All information collected may be used or shared by MySciFiStories.com as described in this Privacy Policy on a worldwide basis.

Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy or our Terms of Use or as specifically authorized by you, we will not disclose any personal information we gather from you on the Website.

Laws and Legal Rights.

We may disclose a Website Member’s information (including personally identifiable information) if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other valid legal process. We may disclose personally identifiable information in special circumstances when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the for our Website, to detect fraud, for assistance with a delinquent account, or to protect the safety and/or security of our Members, the Website or the general public.

Third Parties Generally.

We may provide to third parties non-personally identifiable information about Website Members, including where such information is combined with similar information of other Members of the Website. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of unique Members who visit the Website, the demographic breakdown of our registered Members of the Website, the Submissions of Members, or the products and/or services purchased using the Website and the vendors of such products and services. In addition to the above, when users use our service, third parties may directly collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information about our users’ online activities over time and across different websites. The third parties to which we may provide, and who may directly collect, personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information may include potential or actual advertisers, providers of advertising products or services (including vendors and Website tracking services), merchants, affiliates and other actual or potential commercial partners and customers, sponsors, licensees, researchers and other similar parties.

The Submissions of Website Members, including Submissions that contain personally identifiable information, are not subject to this Privacy Policy, and may be provided in any manner to third parties.

Outside Contractors.

We may employ independent contractors, vendors and suppliers (collectively, "Outside Contractors") to provide specific services and products related to the Website, such as hosting and maintaining the Website, providing credit card processing and fraud screening, and developing applications for the Website and e-mail services. In the course of providing products or services to us, these Outside Contractors may sometimes have limited access to information collected on the Website, including Members’ personally identifiable information. We require that these Outside contractors (1) protect the privacy of the personally identifiable information of our Website Members consistent with this Privacy Policy, and (2) not use or disclose the personally identifiable information of our Website Members for any purpose other than providing us with the products or services for which we contracted or as required by law.

Sale of Business.

We reserve the right to transfer information to a third party in the event of a sale, merger or other transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of MySciFiStories.com or any of its Corporate Affiliates (as defined below), or that portion of MySciFiStories.com or any of its Corporate Affiliates to which the Website and/or Apps relates, or in the event that we discontinue our business or file a petition or have filed against us a petition in bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding, provided that the third party agrees to adhere to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Affiliates.

We may disclose information (including personally identifiable information) about Website Members to our Corporate Affiliates. For purposes of this Privacy Policy, "Corporate Affiliate" means any person or entity which directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by or is under common control with MySciFiStories.com, whether by ownership or otherwise; and “control” means possessing, directly or indirectly, the power to direct or cause the direction of the management, policies or operations of an entity, whether through ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the voting securities, by contract or otherwise. Any information relating to Website Members that we provide to our Corporate Affiliates will be treated by those Corporate Affiliates in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.
No. Our Website may contain links to other websites not owned or operated by MySciFiStories.com. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such websites. We encourage you to be aware when the Website links to other websites and to read the privacy policies or statements of each such website. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by our Website.

IS THE INFORMATION COLLECTED ON THE WEBSITE SECURE?

We want Members’ information (including personally identifiable information) to remain as secure as possible. We strive to provide secure transmission of your information from your computer to our servers through industry-standard techniques.

Notwithstanding the above commitments to protect your information (including personally identifiable information) from loss, misuse or alteration by third parties, you should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart our security systems. As a result, while we strive to protect Members’ information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security or privacy of any information transmitted to us, and users do so at their own risk.

WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE REGARDING THE COLLECTION, DISCLOSURE AND DISTRIBUTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy or our Terms of Use, we will only use personally identifiable information for the purposes described above or as otherwise disclosed at the time we request such information from a Member. A Member must "opt-in" and give us permission to use their personally identifiable information for any other purpose. As noted above, without requiring Members to “opt-in”, we may send marketing materials and our electronic newsletter to those who become registered Members of the Website. Members may change their preference and "opt-out" of receiving such communications from us by changing that option in the feature of the Website, following the directions provided in association with the communication, or by contacting admin@MySciFiStories.com.

CAN I UPDATE OR CORRECT MY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?

Except with respect to Submissions, you have the right to request the restriction of certain uses and disclosures of personally identifiable information as follows. You can contact us in order to (1) update or correct your personally identifiable information, (2) change your preferences with respect to communications and other information you receive from us, or (3) delete the personally identifiable information maintained about you on our systems (subject to the following paragraph), by accessing or contacting admin@MySciFiStories.com. Such updates, corrections, changes and deletions will not have an effect on other information that we maintain, or information that we have provided to third parties in accordance with this Privacy Policy prior to such update, correction, change or deletion. To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique pin code) to verify your identity before granting you profile access or making corrections. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique pin code and account information at all times.

You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information that has been provided to us from our system. The need to back-up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of a user’s personally identifiable information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. After receiving your request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to update, correct, change, or delete, as appropriate, all respective personally identifiable information stored in databases we actively use and other readily searchable media, as soon as and to the extent reasonably practicable.

HOW WILL I KNOW IF THERE ARE ANY CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY?

You should be aware that we may revise this Privacy Policy at any time, but we will not make changes that result in significant additional uses or disclosures of a Member’s personally identifiable information without allowing the Member to “opt in” to such changes. We may also make non-significant changes to this Privacy Policy that generally will not significantly affect our use of a Member’s personally identifiable information, for which your opt-in is not required. We will provide users with notification of any material changes by posting in the “Website Updates” pages of the Website and by email (to your last known address), pop-up screen or in-Website notice. If any non-significant changes to which Privacy Policy are unacceptable to you, you must immediately contact us and, until the issue is resolved, stop using MySciFiStories.com. Continued use of MySciFiStories.com following a revision to this Privacy Policy that does not significantly affect the use or disclosure of your personally-identifiable information will mean that you accept those changes.

DATA BREACH NOTIFICATION

Responsibility by MySciFiStories.com to notify Members of data breach will be based on applicable law and the advice of legal counsel, who will review the breach and determine if, and to what extent, notification or other action is required. MySciFiStories.com will provide all notices, and take all other actions, that may be required by law.
