Togness is the owner and retains all proprietary rights to the Service, and all associated copyrights, trademarks, brands, service marks, patents or other proprietary rights under law. Copying, distributing, modifying, or creating derivative works of Togness’s Services without Togness’s written permission is strictly prohibited.

Togness’s trademarks and/or service marks may not be used in connection with any product or service that is not provided by Togness, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among customers or users of the site, tarnishes or dilutes the marks, or disparages or discredits Togness.

Togness’s Services include a user interface that allows you to upload user content and customize certain aspects of your desired Togness Story. You are granted a limited right to use those services only in conjunction with the Service and in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.


Others’ Intellectual Property Rights

Togness deeply respects the third party intellectual property rights that may be implicated in creating a Togness Story. These intellectual property rights, and your responsibilities with respect to these rights, are outlined below.

In creating a Togness Story using Togness’s proprietary software, you will be able to use your own Image Content such as photos, graphics, text, or videos. You will be able to either upload your own Text Content, or select Text Content (Quotations) provided by Togness. Both the Image Content and Text Content have associated intellectual property rights as described further herein. You retain any and all rights you hold with respect to Image Content and Text Content.

Image Content other than your own may be protected by copyright, even if not marked with the © symbol. If you are not the creator of Image Content, then you must get permission from the creator of the Image Content or the copyright holder to use the Image Content in a Togness Story. For example, professionally taken photographs should not be used in a Togness Story unless you have received permission from the photographer to do so. As another example, professionally produced video clips, such as clips of TV shows or movies, should not be used in an Togness Story unless you have received a license to do so from the owner of the copyright.

Furthermore, if you want to publish Image Content of someone other than yourself, you must get permission from the individuals portrayed in the Image Content before using the content in a Togness Story. Do not upload any Image Content that is confidential or proprietary. We assume no liability with respect to the disclosure or use of confidential or proprietary information uploaded on our Service.

Togness licenses Music Content and makes that content available to its users for use in making Togness Stories.

  • You receive no right to use the Licensed Music except in connection with the Services, and no right to copy, distribute, or display Licensed Music separately from the Togness Story.
  • You are not permitted to reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the Services to enable the download or use of Licensed Music on a stand-alone basis.


You warrant that all Image Content, Musical Content and Text Content uploaded by you, either from your own computer or another Site/server, is either created and owned by you, or you have the necessary licenses, rights and permissions to use the Image/Musical/Text Content as you intend to use them and as contemplated by the Site and grant Togness the rights described herein.
