Terms Of Service

1. Introduction
Welcome to Izreke-citati, one of the most fun and supremely educational sites on the web, created by Intellex.rs, a corporation doing business in the Belgrade, Serbia.

Likewise, the words “you” and “your” refer to you, the person who is being presented with this document for your agreement. Also, the sky is blue and grass is green.

Ignorance of the law excuses no man from practicing it.

2. Description of Service & Disclaimer
Izreke-citati, the large quotations website, offers a free, all-access pass to the world of quotations. We educate and entertain audiences of all ages with family-friendly quotations from history’s most prominent figures through to today’s newsmakers – famous celebrities, athletes, politicians, authors, and everything in between. Izreke-citati is supported by ad revenue generated from ads that appear on our sites.

In keeping with our mission to share our knowledge with the world, Izreke-citati provides a hand-selected ‘Quote of the Day’ on our Facebook, Twitter accounts . You can ‘Like’ us, Follow us, +1 us, or sign up for our RSS feeds to receive our daily quote in your newsfeed.

Unlike certain websites (which shall remain nameless… but you know who you are), we strive to source our quotes and review them to ensure their accuracy. However, we can’t provide any 100% assurances about the quotes we post. That said, most people find our site enormously satisfying, and they love and adore our wonderful site.

Since fans share our unbridled enthusiasm for quotations, the Izreke-citati submission form allows individuals to upload quotes by famous people with a reference URL as an accompanying source. We appreciate submissions, but do not guarantee Izreke-citati will publish them. Visitors can also email suggestions to us; we appreciate these, but there’s no guarantee we will follow them. A human being (not a quote-bot!) reviews each and every submission and suggestion submitted. While we actively respond to submissions and suggestions by making appropriate additions, changes or enhancements to our site, we do not reply to individual submissions or suggestions.

That service is the noblest which is rendered for its own sake.
Mahatma Gandhi

3. Information Supplied
You can browse our website anonymously, at any time, and for any reason… A term paper is due, you’re bored, you need to impress a prospective employer, or your latest crush… (Whatever the situation, we’re there for you!) If you have time on your hands, and wish to submit a quote for our consideration, we require that you submit information about the author and quotation, and a source URL, and optionally, your name. If you submit your name, it will never be published on our site, and will not be listed anywhere for that matter, ever. If you have a great suggestion for us, you can submit your suggestion via email. Izreke-citati does not and will not publish your email address; it will not be listed anywhere for that matter, ever. ‘Nuff said.

If you’re under thirteen, we’re impressed that you’re spending your time looking up quotes from influential people rather than Tweeting your friends all day long. However, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act prohibits us from collecting certain information from you, so don’t submit any quotes to our website or email suggestions to us. Our submission form permits uploaders to include their name, and emailing a suggestion would mean we have your email address… but we don’t want to know your name, and we don’t want to see your email address. If you’re under 13, do not share your information with us! Thanks.

Information is not knowledge.

4. Copyright (Yours & Ours)
We do own the copyright to the arrangement of information on our website.

Plus, we can make you agree to stuff through this contract that further limits your rights, such as by writing this: You agree not to copy, distribute, display, disseminate, or otherwise reproduce any of the information on our website, or our website itself, without our prior written permission. This includes, but is not limited to, a prohibition on aggregating information that is in the public domain and publishing it elsewhere. This prohibition does not extend to uses which would, if governed solely by the copyright law of the Serbia, be considered a “fair use.”

In other words, by accepting this Agreement, you can use our stuff for legitimate academic, research, and reporting projects, but you can’t use it to just copy and paste a bunch of our stuff on your own website. That hurts our search engine rankings, not to mention our feelings. We’d also point out that we don’t pay for anything you submit to us via our submission form or suggestion email inbox simply because you provide it of your own volition. By submitting material to us, you acknowledge that you have the right to do so, and that you completely transfer to us any rights you might have had in the submission.

The name “Izreke-citati”, and the Izreke-citati logo, are owned by Intellex. and protected by copyright. You agree not to copy, distribute, display, disseminate, or otherwise reproduce the Izreke-citati name or the Izreke-citati logo, without our prior written permission.

In other words, by accepting this Agreement, you cannot use the name Izreke-citati for any purpose, and you cannot use our logo on your own website, your blog, use it as your Facebook or Twitter icon, to create a temporary tattoo, or any other cockamamie reason. Now, if you get a permanent Izreke-citati tattoo, we want to see it. (Photo or it didn’t happen!) We know the Izreke-citati name and logo is cool, but it’s our property, not yours. Got it? Good.

Also, all photographs published on Izreke-citati, and on our ‘Quote of the Day’ social media pages on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ and Tumblr, are owned by Intellex, Inc. and protected by copyright. Our photographs are so awesome, we’ve watermarked each and every one of them. You agree not to copy, distribute, display, disseminate, or otherwise reproduce Izreke-citati photographs, without our prior written permission. That said, there is one exception: You can share our photographs via social media as long as, and only if, they link back to Izreke-citati. If you steal our images, publish them and link them back your own website, we will find you… and that won’t be good! Share our photographs, enjoy them, be inspired by them – do not infringe on them, and we will remain friends.

5. Trademarks
Izreke-citati is a trademark owned by us, Intellex d.o.o., to uniquely identify our quotations website. You agree not to use this phrase anywhere without our prior written consent. Additionally, you agree not to use our trade dress, or copy the look and feel of our website or its design, without our prior written consent. What is a trade dress, you ask? We’re not quite sure ourselves, but our lawyers assure us that it doesn’t involve wearing a tux to a black-tie event. You agree that this paragraph goes beyond the governing law on intellectual property law, and includes prohibitions on any competition that violates the provisions of this paragraph.

6. Revocation of Consent
Where Izreke-citati has given prior written consent for your use of our protected material in accordance with our above “Copyright” and “Trademarks” provisions, we may revoke that consent at any time. If we so request, demand, yell, pontificate, or filibuster, we may require that you immediately take action to remove from circulation, display, publication, or other dissemination, any of the marks, copyrighted content, or other materials that we previously consented for you to use.

7. Representations & Warranties
We make no representations or warranties as to the merchantability of our service or fitness for any particular purpose. You agree that you are releasing us from any liability that we may otherwise have to you in relation to or arising from this Agreement or our service, for reasons including, but not limited to, failure of our service, negligence, totally inaccurate quotes that were either never said by anybody notable or just attributed to the wrong person (we don’t know how that’s worthy of a lawsuit, but whatever), or any other tort. To the extent that applicable law restricts this release of liability, you agree that we are only liable to you for the minimum amount of damages that the law restricts our liability to, if such a minimum exists. If there is no minimum then we will pay you in quotes, all in a language you can’t read, and sent in giant stone tablets on your front porch. Ok, we’re kidding since that would cost a lot of money, but really… please don’t sue us.

You agree that we are not responsible in any way for offers made by third parties through our website. We can’t accept liability for this kind of stuff because most, if not all, of our ads are just displayed through third parties like Google and we let them have a banner on our website.

We are not liable for any failure of our service, including any failures or disruptions, scheduled or unscheduled, intentional or unintentional, on our website which prevent access to our website temporarily or permanently, even if caused as a result of our extreme negligence, like using our server computers as stands for our ping pong table.

8. Indemnity
You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless for any claims by you or any third party which may arise from or relate to this Agreement or the provision of our service to you, including any damages caused by your use of our website or acceptance of the offers contained on it. You also agree that you have a duty to defend us against such claims, and we may require you to pay for an attorney(s) of our choice in such cases. You agree that this indemnity extends to requiring you to pay for our reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements. In the event of a claim such as one described in this paragraph, we may elect to settle with the party/parties making the claim, and you shall be liable for the damages as though we had proceeded with a trial.

9. Choice of Law
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws in force in the State of Serbia. The offer and acceptance of this contract is deemed to have occurred in the State of SErbia.

10. Forum of Dispute
You agree that any dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement will be heard solely by a court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Serbia

11. Force Majeure
You agree that we are not responsible to you for anything that we may otherwise be responsible for, if it is the result of events beyond our control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, insurrection, riots, terrorism, crime, labor shortages (including lawful and unlawful strikes), embargoes, attacks from outer space, postal disruption, communication disruption, failure or shortage of infrastructure, shortage of materials, or any other event beyond our control.

12. Severability
In the event that a provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, conflicting with another provision of the Agreement, or otherwise unenforceable, the Agreement will remain in force as though it had been entered into without that unenforceable provision being included in it.

If two or more provisions of this Agreement are deemed to conflict with each other’s operation, Intellex, Inc. shall have the sole right to elect which provision remains in force. There is a very good reason for our having the upper hand: You agreed to it. That is all.

13. Assignment
You may not assign your rights and/or obligations under this Agreement to any other party without our prior written consent. We may assign our rights and/or obligations under this Agreement to any other party at our discretion.

14. Amendments
We may amend this Agreement from time to time. When we amend this Agreement, we will update this page and indicate the date that it was last modified. You may refuse to agree to the amendments, but if you do, you must immediately cease using our website and our service. You must visit this page each time you come to our website and read and agree to it if the date it was last modified is more recent than the last time you agreed to the Agreement.
