Terms of Service
Updated January 1, 2023

Welcome to SourceDigital.com! These Terms of Service are a written contract (the “Terms”) between you and/or your company (collectively, “you”) and Source Digital, Inc. (“Company,” “we” or “us”) and apply to your use of our websites and mobile apps. In these Terms, we refer to all our websites and apps as the “Website,” unless we’re only talking about our apps, in which case we refer to them as “Apps.”

These Terms do not apply to any advertising or other services you purchase from or provide to us, which are covered by Separate Agreement as discussed more fully below in the section entitled “Our Services.”

If you don’t agree to these Terms, then you must stop using the Website.

This is important, so we are mentioning it here at the top of the Terms:

These Terms contain an “Arbitration Agreement” where you waive your right to a jury trial and to bring a class action.

What is arbitration?

Legal disputes are usually resolved in a court of law in front of a judge and, sometimes, a jury. Court cases are a matter of public record. Arbitration is a less formal and more private way of resolving disputes. Instead of going to court, the parties give their arguments and evidence to an arbitrator, and the arbitrator decides who “wins” the case by applying the law in the same way that a judge would. In fact, many arbitrators are retired judges or lawyers. Instead of a courtroom, arbitrations are generally held in a private office, such as a conference room, or by video conference.

What is our Arbitration Agreement?

Under these Terms, ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM BETWEEN YOU AND US RELATING TO YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE, THESE TERMS, THE PRIVACY POLICY, OR ANY OF THE OTHER TERMS AND POLICIES LISTED IN THESE TERMS MUST BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION. This means that we all agree that we will only resolve our legal disputes through arbitration and not in a court of law. Without this Arbitration Agreement, you would have the right to sue in court with a jury trial.

How will the arbitration work?

The arbitration must be filed and conducted through JAMS (www.jamsadr.org), which is a provider of arbitration services in the United States and internationally. JAMS’ Streamlined Rules will apply to the arbitration. All claims, remedies, and defenses that either you or we have under applicable law (whether federal, state, or local) will remain available to us in the arbitration. Each of us will participate in choosing a neutral arbitrator using the process in the Streamlined Rules. Unless you waive this requirement, the final arbitration hearing (which is like a trial) will take place in person at the JAMS facility closest to your home or, if you are using the Website on behalf of a company, the principal place of business of your company. The arbitrator’s award will consist of a written statement explaining the arbitrator’s decision on each claim. The award will also include a concise written statement of the findings of fact and conclusions of law on which the award is based. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so.

What law will the arbitrator follow?

The laws of Pennsylvania govern these Terms. The arbitrator will apply Pennsylvania law to the claims in the arbitration.

Who pays for the arbitration?

The laws of Pennsylvania govern these Terms. The arbitrator will apply Pennsylvania law to the claims in the arbitration.

Who pays for the arbitration?

The answer to this question depends on whether the dispute arises out of a business-to-consumer transaction, with you as the consumer (B2C), or a business-to-business (B2B) transaction.

For disputes arising out of B2C transactions, in most cases, the only fee you will have to pay to JAMS is $250; we will pay all other arbitration costs. However, if the arbitrator decides that you filed your claim in bad faith and without any legal basis, the arbitrator can require you to pay more (or even all) of the JAMS fees for the arbitration.

The JAMS fees do not include attorneys’ fees. Regardless of who wins the claim, you will be responsible for paying your attorneys’ fees and we will be responsible for paying ours. The only exception is if the claim is brought under a law that specifically allows a party to recover its attorneys’ fees. If this applies, the arbitrator may award attorneys’ fees as they see fit under such law.

For disputes arising out of B2B transactions, each side will be responsible for paying its own attorneys’ fees and costs and half of all fees assessed by JAMS for the arbitration.

Are there any instances where a court will get involved?

Yes. There are things an arbitrator cannot do, like order a party to act or stop doing something—this is known as “equitable relief.” Either one of us can go to court and seek equitable relief, including by filing a motion to compel the other party to honor the arbitration agreement. However, you and we agree that the only courts where we will seek equitable relief—or file any legal proceeding outside of arbitration—are the state and federal courts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This exception for equitable relief does not waive our Arbitration Agreement.

Can I file a class action?

No. You and we agree that we will only file claims against each other individually and not as a plaintiff or class member in a representative proceeding. THIS MEANS CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT ALLOWED.

What if we have a Separate Agreement with different arbitration terms?

If we have entered into a Separate Agreement with you, then the choice of law, forum selection, and arbitration provisions (if any) of such Separate Agreement shall supersede these Terms and govern all disputes between us.


Our Company provides technology and advertising services through our turnkey advertising software and platform, the Source Digital Experience. We only provide such services pursuant to a Separate Agreement. AS a result, these Terms only apply to your use of the Website outside of any services that are covered in a Separate Agreement. If you have a Separate Agreement with us, and there is any conflict between the terms of the Separate Agreement and these Terms, then the Separate Agreement shall govern.

What are third parties?

Third parties are any person or business other than you or us—in other words, someone who is not a party to these Terms. Here are a few examples of third parties:

  • Our vendors. These third parties help us to run the Website. To do so, they may place cookies on your device or have access to your personal information. We address the exchange of information with our third-party vendors in our Privacy Policy.
  • Other users of the Website. While other users may have agreed to the terms of the Website, they are not party to these Terms between you and us. Accordingly, when other users post Content to the Website, it is third-party Content—meaning neither you nor we are responsible for it.
  • Other websites or apps. The Website may contain links to other websites and apps that are operated by third parties. We may have relationships with some of these third parties, while with others, we do not.
Third-Party Content

Third-party Content includes any posts, uploads, messages, opinions, advice, statements, or other information posted to the Website by a third party. Third parties are solely responsible for their own Content. We do not review all third-party Content and do not guarantee that it is accurate, complete, or useful. We are not responsible for your reliance on third-party Content.

Third-Party Websites

The Website may contain links to third-party websites or apps. Some of these third parties may have a business relationship with us while others do not. We do not have control over the content or performance of a third-party website. Except where we’ve expressly indicated an affiliate relationship or other endorsement, we don’t represent or endorse third-party websites, apps, information, goods, or services.

Your Account

We may ask you to create a user account (your “Account”) to access certain parts of the Website. You promise that you will only provide complete and accurate information to us in connection with your Account. This means you cannot set up your Account in a manner that impersonates another person or business. If you violate this policy, we may terminate your Account and delete all your Content.

Account Security

It is up to you to ensure your username and password are secure. You agree not to share your Account login details with anyone else. If you believe your Account has been accessed without your permission, you should immediately notify us.

Your Content

We refer to all content uploaded, posted, or communicated to or through the Website as “Content.” Your Content includes your posts and status updates, images, photographs, profile pictures and information, video and audio recordings, artwork, music, literary works, gifs, memes, reviews, comments, ratings, and your interactions with other users through the Website (both public and private messages). Your Content includes all Content posted through your Account, regardless of whether you personally posted it.

It is up to you to make sure that your Content obeys these Terms and the law. It is not an excuse to say you did not understand the law, that you were simply reposting another user’s Content, or that you’ve seen similar Content posted by others. Once you decide to post it, the Content becomes your responsibility

Abusive and Illegal Content

You agree not to post any of the following types of content:

  • Infringing Content. Infringing Content is any Content that does not belong to you and for which you have not obtained permission from the owner to post it. For example, any photograph you did not personally take is infringing Content; however, if your friend took a photograph and gave you permission to post it on the Website, it is no longer infringing
  • Illegal or Obscene Content. Any Content prohibited by law—such as child pornography—is also prohibited on the Website. We also prohibit obscene Content, including Content depicting violence, rape, drug use, and similar illegal acts, whether fictionalized or real. We do not allow Content containing pornography, depiction of sexual acts, or nudity on the Website, whether legal or not.
  • Threatening, Defamatory, or Invasive Content. We don’t allow any Content that threatens or spreads misinformation about other users or persons. We don’t allow any Content that violates a user’s privacy, such as doxing. The enforcement of this section is within our exclusive discretion. This means that we do not have to take down Content just because you feel it is dishonest or threatening.
  • Commercial Solicitations or “Spam.” Do not post Content that solicits other users or constitutes spam. Spammy comments are a great way to get your Account terminated. If you see other users posting spam, you should report it. We appreciate your help with our effort to keep the Website spam-free.

When you post prohibited Content, it creates legal problems for you and our Company. If a third-party asserts any legal claims against us regarding your Content, you agree that you will indemnify, defend, and hold us harmless Company for and against all claims asserted by third parties (including, without limitation, other users) that arise out of or relate to your Content. This means you will pay all attorneys’ fees and other costs we incur to defend our Company in a lawsuit related to your Content. As you can see, it’s easier and cheaper if you don’t post the prohibited Content in the first place!

To prevent such claims from happening, we reserve the right to remove or edit your Content but we have no obligation to do so and we do not conduct such reviews as a matter of practice.


If your Content contains any reviews or comments—including reviews of the Website, our Company, or the Source Digital Experience, you represent that such reviews and comments are true and accurately represent your experience. You understand and agree that, pursuant to the license granted in your Content Company will have the right to republish all or part of your reviews and comments on the Website, Company’s social media accounts, advertising, and other media as Company deems fit.

Apps and Software

When you use an App or other software Product, you may be given the opportunity to turn on or off certain permissions for us to access your device or Third-Party accounts.

For Apps, your ability to give or revoke such permissions is located within the general platform settings for your device and is not controlled by us.

Consent to Receive Electronic Messages

You consent to receive electronic communications from us, such as text messages, emails, and mobile push notification. Where required by law, we will provide you an additional, express opportunity to opt-in to receive such messages. You can always opt out of receiving electronic communications as follows:

  • For text messages, respond STOP.
  • For mobile push notifications, change your App permissions in the general settings for your mobile device.

  • accessing content or data not intended for you, or logging into a server or account that you are not authorized to access;
  • attempting to probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of the Website, or any associated system or network, or breaching security or authentication measures;

  • paying or accepting payment from anyone for interactions on the Website, including paying for likes, reviews, and comments.
No Warranties.

A warranty is a promise made by a business to a consumer about the business’s products or services. The law assumes a business has made certain warranties unless it disclaims them. When a business “disclaims” a warranty, it is the equivalent of saying “we are not making this promise to you.”



Limitation of Liability.

This section limits the types of claims you can bring against us. These limitations help us reduce the risks associated with providing the Website, Services, and the Source Digital Experience—in fact, we could not provide them otherwise.

You represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old (or the age of majority in your jurisdiction, if different than 18).

Corporate Use

If you are using the Website on behalf of a company, you further represent and warrant that you are authorized to act on behalf of that company, including by agreeing to binding contracts.

Electronic Notice

You consent to receive notices, disclosures, and other communications electronically at the email address linked with your Account. You agree that these electronic notices satisfy any legal requirements that such communications be in writing.


The provisions of these Terms which, by their nature, should survive termination shall survive such termination, including the sections entitle ARBITRATION, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS, and MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS.


If any provision of these Terms is declared invalid, void, or unenforceable, then that provision is severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.

No Waiver

A waiver by either you or Company of any term or condition of these Terms, or any breach, in any one instance, will not waive that term or condition or any later breach.

Independent Contractors

You understand and agree that you and Company are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, or employee-employer relationship is intended or created by these Terms.
