YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, BY ACCESSING OR USING THE STORIFY SERVICE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, BY POSTING ANY CONTENT FROM OR ON OR THROUGH THE STORIFY SERVICE, YOU ARE INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE REGISTERED WITH STORIFY.

If you accept or agree to these Terms of Service on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to these Terms of Service and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to that company or other legal entity.

By continuing to access or use the Storify Service after we have posted a modification on Storify’s website or have otherwise provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms of Service. If the modified Terms of Service are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Storify Service.
