Revised: July 11, 2019.
Please note: These Terms require the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions, and also limit the remedies available to you in the event of a dispute.
Eligibility to Use Glowlit
A. To access or use Glowlit, you must be at least 18 years of age or, if older, the age of majority in your jurisdiction, otherwise you may not use Glowlit. Except as set forth above, or as otherwise approved by us, Glowlit is for your personal, non-commercial use unless you enter into a separate agreement with us for your commercial use. You may not use Glowlit if we have terminated your account or banned you.
Your Glowlit Account
Glowlit Account. In order for you to create a Glowlit account, we require that you provide a valid email address. The email you use must be one where we can reach you. In the event we cannot correspond with you via this email address, your submitted content may be rejected and your account may be disabled. Once you have set up a password, you will be given access to your profile and other private areas of your account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You agree to notify us immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your account or access to your password. You are solely responsible for any and all use of your account. Passwords are subject to cancellation or suspension by Glowlit at any time. When you set up an individual user account on Glowlit, we create a member profile (a "Profile") for you that will include personal information you provide. Because your anonymity on Glowlit is important, your Profile does not include or link to information about price inputs and/or product information you submit to Glowlit.
Social Sign Up and Sign In. You may be able to register an account and subsequently access Glowlit through a social networking site, such as LinkedIn ("Social Networking Site"). If you access Glowlit through a Social Networking Site you agree that we may access, make available through Glowlit, and store (if applicable) any information, data, text, messages, tags, and/or other materials that you have provided to and stored and made accessible in your Social Networking Site account so that it is available on and through Glowlit via your account and your Profile page. Subject to the privacy settings that you have set with the Social Networking Site account you use to access Glowlit, personally identifiable information that you post to that Social Networking Site may be displayed on Glowlit. Please note: your relationship with your Social Networking Sites is governed solely by your agreement with those Social Networking Sites and we disclaim any liability for personally identifiable information that may be provided to us by a Social Networking Site in violation of the privacy settings that you have set with that Social Networking Site account.
Third-Party Content on Glowlit. Content from other users, advertisers, and other third parties is made available to you through Glowlit. "Content" means any work of authorship or information, including, advertisements, comments, opinions, postings, messages, text, files, images, photos, works of authorship, e-mail, data or other materials you find on Glowlit. Because we do not control such Content, you understand and agree that: (1) we are not responsible for, and do not endorse, any such Content, including advertising and information about third-party products and services provided by other users; (2) we make no guarantees about the accuracy, currency, suitability, reliability or quality of the information in such Content; and (3) we assume no responsibility for unintended, objectionable, inaccurate, misleading, or unlawful Content made available by users, advertisers, and third parties.
In accordance with Section 230 of the U.S. Communications Decency Act, and any equivalent or similar laws in other jurisdictions which are intended to exclude or limit the liability of online service providers who provide access to user-generated content, we generally cannot be held liable for claims arising from the Content provided by third parties on Glowlit.
We allow users to post content about purchases they made when the user passed Glowlit’s price verification algorithm. We consider all verified user uploaded price entries as sales of products and present this information as Content on Glowlit. While we provide the option for Glowlit users to specify the category of their purchase after they pass our verification system (e.g Purchased, In Negotiations, etc.), we do not consider this a requirement.
House Rules. You represent and warrant that you will use Glowlit solely for lawful purposes in a manner consistent with these Terms and any and all applicable laws, regulations, or other legally enforceable obligations (including contractual obligations) you may have towards us and any third parties. You are solely responsible for any and all Content that is posted through your account on Glowlit ("Your Content").

Links to Third-Party Websites. Glowlit may contain links to third-party websites placed by us as a service to those interested in this information, or posted by other users. Your use of all such links to third-party websites is at your own risk. We do not monitor or have any control over, and make no claim or representation regarding third-party websites. To the extent such links are provided by us, they are provided only as a convenience, and a link to a third-party website does not imply our endorsement, adoption or sponsorship of, or affiliation with, such third-party website. When you leave Glowlit, our terms and policies do not govern your use of third-party websites.
Price Estimates. In certain markets we may offer Price estimate features, such as estimating a specific price of a product in a certain market. Unless otherwise indicated, we estimate base price only and do not include the value of other logistics and financial services or other forms of compensation. Though we may offer sellers the ability to supplement or replace our price estimates with their own data, users should understand that, unless indicated otherwise, results do not represent verified sales, guarantees of actual purchases. Their purpose is to provide data to promote transparency and to help people make informed decisions. We do not guarantee the accuracy of results and you are responsible for how you use them. We encourage you to supplement Glowlit's price estimates with other research. If you have other questions or want to provide other feedback on price estimates, please contact us here.
Special Provisions Applicable to Advertisers
This provision applies to all advertisers. Unless we agree otherwise, you may not use or otherwise process data collected or derived from ads ("Ad Data") for any purpose (including retargeting, building or augmenting user profiles, allowing piggybacking or redirecting with tags, or combining with data across multiple advertisers' campaigns) other than to assess the performance and effectiveness of your campaigns on an aggregate and anonymous basis. You may not, and you may not permit a third-party to, transfer or sell any Ad Data to, or use Ad Data in connection with, any ad network, ad exchange, data broker, or other party not acting on behalf of you and your campaigns. You may use information provided directly to you from users if you provide clear notice to and obtain consent from those users and comply with all applicable laws and industry guidelines, including those applicable to data protection.
