We may use from time to time, at our sole discretion, a third-party platform ("Platform") to host our Content, Community and Programs. At this time, the platform that we are using includes, but is not limited to, Mighty Networks and is accessible on a web application or as a Mighty Networks mobile application, which can be downloaded from app stores and used on mobile.

Who May Become a Member of the Community?

You may become a member of the Community if you are 18 years or older and at our sole discretion, for any reason or no reason at all. You hereby relinquish and waive, in the past, present and future, all claims regarding our determination with respect to your membership in our Community.


Becoming a Member of the Community

If you want to become a member of the Community, which you can do through the Site or Platforms, we will allow you to create an account (“Account”) at our sole discretion, which may be denied at any reason, or no reason at all. Individuals who create an Account with the Community (which includes you and third party Account holders) are collectively referred to as “Members” throughout these Terms.


As part of the Account registration process, you may be requested to provide information about yourself in order to become a Member. You warrant and represent that you are providing us with accurate, complete and up-to-date information regarding the truth of your identity and information for your Account. You agree to update such information to keep it accurate. If you do not, we may have the sole right and discretion for any reason, or no reason at all, to suspend or terminate your Account.  


You agree that you will not disclose your Account password to anyone or any entity and that you will notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account and take reasonable steps to remedy any willful mistake on your end. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them. You may not use a username with or containing: the name of another person or entity or that is not lawfully available for use, a name or trademark that is subject to any rights of another person or entity other than you, or any name that we determine at our sole discretion is offensive, vulgar or obscene. You may not access or use the Community if you are a competitor of SolPods or if we have previously banned you from the Platform or closed your Account; the use of the term "competitor" is understood in its broadest term and includes any company or person who may now or in the future attempt to use SolPods' intellectual property at our sole determination.


If you voluntarily choose to provide your personal information, this information is covered under our Privacy Policy, which is included by reference as if fully set forth herein.  Any information or other submissions, transmissions and/or postings that are communicated to us through the Site or Platform will be considered non-confidential/non-proprietary and will become, to the fullest extent permitted by law, our exclusive property.
