Except as set forth below, the use on any website or other environment of any material available on or through the Service is strictly prohibited. Matterport and its licensors own all right, title and interest (including all associated intellectual property rights, in each case whether registered or unregistered, and related goodwill) in and to the Service. Matterport and its licensors reserve all rights in and to the Service not expressly granted to you in these Terms.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, subject to these Terms, we hereby authorize (and encourage) you to do any of the following on a revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable basis:
- Use the functionality of the Matterport website and view any content available on the Matterport website through the functionality included in the website;
- Link to any page of the Matterport website, including on any of your websites or blogs or through any of your social networking outlets;
- Utilize the “screenshot” functionality of the Matterport Viewer, to the extent it is available, to create copies of the images as they are displayed on the screen, and post or otherwise share those images—without removing any Matterport logo or watermark or making any other modification to the image—via any of your websites or blogs or through any of your social networking outlets;

Except as authorized by the previous sentence, no portion of the Service may be copied, reproduced, republished, modified, used to create derivative works from, decompiled, reverse engineered, disassembled, uploaded, posted, transmitted, exploited, or distributed in any way without the prior written permission of Matterport (other than as needed for your computer or device to interface with the Service). Without limiting the generality of the previous sentence, you agree not to distribute in any medium any part of the Service without Matterport’s prior written authorization, unless Matterport makes available the means for such distribution through functionality offered through normal use by the Service (such as the Matterport Viewer). You also agree not to access the Service through any technology or means other than through the pages of the Matterport website, the Matterport Viewer, or other explicitly authorized means Matterport may designate. If you use the Matterport Viewer on your website, you may not modify, build upon, hide, or block any portion or functionality of the Matterport Viewer, including but not limited to links back to the Matterport website. Any use of the Matterport Viewer on your website will be subject to these Terms. You agree not to circumvent, disable or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the Service or features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any portion of the Service or enforce limitations on use of the Service or the content therein. Any unauthorized use or modification of any of the materials available on the Service is a violation of the copyrights and other proprietary rights of Matterport and its licensors. Written permission for any such unauthorized use or modification must be obtained from Matterport in advance; such requests should be submitted via an email to [email protected]. Matterport reserves the right to discontinue any aspect of the Service at any time.

- Links to Other Websites.
For your convenience, the Service may contain links to other websites. If you use these links, you will leave the Service. Certain of these linked websites may make use of Layer Cake’s intellectual property rights (such as copyrights, trademarks, service marks, logos and trade names) under license from Layer Cake. Layer Cake is not responsible for the availability or content of these other websites or for any viruses or other damaging elements encountered in linking to a third-party website, whether or not Layer Cake is affiliated with the owners of such websites. In addition, providing links to these websites should not be interpreted as endorsement or approval by Layer Cake of the organizations sponsoring such third-party websites or their products or services. Except for any Layer Cake property or content embedded in any third-party website, these Terms do not apply to any third-party website.
- Jurisdictional Issues.
The Service is controlled and operated by Layer Cake from its offices within the State of California, in the United States of America. Layer Cake makes no representation that materials available on the Service are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who choose to access the Service from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent such laws are applicable. Access to the Service from jurisdictions where the contents of the Service are illegal or penalized is prohibited. Software from the Service is further subject to United States export controls. No information or software from the Service may be downloaded or otherwise re-exported (i) into or to a national or resident of any country to which the United States embargoes or sanctions goods, services or technology; or (ii) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Commerce Department’s Table of Denial Orders. By using information or software from the Service, you represent and warrant that you are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any such country or on any such list.
Layer Cake may terminate your use of the Service at any time in our sole discretion. Upon any such termination, you must destroy any material obtained from the Service and all copies thereof. The provisions of these Terms concerning Site security, prohibited activities, ownership, third-party copyrights, trademarks, user submissions, disclaimer, limitation of liability, indemnity, privacy, and jurisdictional issues shall survive any such termination.
THE MATERIALS AND FUNCTIONALITIES AVAILABLE ON THE SERVICE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE PURSUANT TO APPLICABLE LAW, LAYER CAKE DISCLAIMS, ON BEHALF OF ITSELF AND ITS AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS, ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. LAYER CAKE DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE FUNCTIONS ON THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. LAYER CAKE DOES NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES REGARDING THE USE OR THE RESULTS OF THE USE OF THE MATERIALS OR FUNCTIONS ON THE SERVICE IN TERMS OF THEIR CORRECTNESS, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, RESULTS TO BE ACHIEVED, OR OTHERWISE. APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMERS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
- Limitation of Liability.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW: (A) UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, NEGLIGENCE, SHALL LAYER CAKE OR ITS AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR OTHER INDIRECT DAMAGES, EVEN IF LAYER CAKE OR A LAYER CAKE AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES; AND (B) THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF LAYER CAKE AND ITS AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS TO YOU SHALL NOT EXCEED THE LESSER OF THE TOTAL AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO LAYER CAKE OVER THE SIX (6) MONTHS PRECEDING YOUR CLAIM(S), OR $500. THESE LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY REMEDY. APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW SOME OR ALL OF THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, SO IT MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Layer Cake, its affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, employees, and agents, from and against any claim, demand, action, class action, investigation or other proceeding, including but not limited to all damages, losses, liabilities, judgments, costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising therefrom (“Claims”), brought by any third party that is based on, or arises out of: (a) your activities on or use of the Service; (b) your violation, or apparent violation, of any of these Terms; or (c) any allegation that any material you submitted to Layer Cake violates any law or infringes any third party right, including any intellectual property or privacy right. You shall not settle any Claim unless such settlement completely and forever releases Layer Cake from all liability with respect to such Claim or unless Layer Cake consents to such settlement in writing.
- Site Security.
You are prohibited from violating, or attempting to violate, the security of the Service, including without limitation to conduct a denial of service attack or other attack. Any such violations may result in criminal and/or civil penalties against you. Layer Cake will investigate any alleged or suspected violations and if a criminal violation is suspected, we will cooperate with law enforcement agencies in their investigations.
The Service is intended for a general audience. Layer Cake does not seek through the Service to gather personal information from or about children under the age of 13.
- Policy Regarding Third-Party Copyrights.
Layer Cake respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. Layer Cake will promptly remove materials from the Service in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) if properly notified that the materials infringe a third party’s copyright.
If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please provide Layer Cake’s copyright agent with the following information: (a) a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed; (b) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Service; (c) your address, telephone number, and email address; (d) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; (e) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on behalf of the copyright or intellectual property owner; and (f) your electronic or physical signature. You may submit this information to Layer Cake’s copyright agent by email at [email protected] or by mail to: Layer Cake Solutions, 174 E Wilson St, Elmhurst, IL. 60126, Attn: Copyright Agent. Layer Cake may disclose any communications concerning DMCA notices or other intellectual property complaints with third parties, including the users who have posted the allegedly infringing material.
If you believe that your material is not infringing or has otherwise been removed by mistake, please provide Layer Cake with a written counter-notification containing the following information: (i) your name, address, and telephone number; (ii) a description of the material that was removed and the location on the Service where it previously appeared; (iii) a statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification; (iv) a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California), and that you will accept service of process from the person who filed the original DMCA notice or an agent of that person; and (v) your electronic or physical signature. You may submit this information by the methods described in the prior paragraph. Please note that we will send any complete counter-notifications we receive to the person who submitted the original DMCA notice. That person may elect to file a lawsuit against you for copyright infringement. If we do not receive notice that a lawsuit has been filed within ten (10) business days after we provide notice of your counter-notification, we will restore the removed materials. Until that time, your materials will remain removed. We will provide a copy of the original DMCA takedown notice upon request.
Please note that if you fail to comply promptly with the foregoing requirements or any request from Layer Cake for additional information, your DMCA notice or counter-notification may not be processed further.
If you have any questions regarding these Terms, please submit your questions via an email to [email protected] We will endeavor to respond to you promptly.
