Examples of PRX Apps include its smartphone or tablet applications (e.g. PRX for iPhone® or PRX for Android®), and PRX’s “Share” buttons and other interactive plugins distributed on websites across the web. PRX Apps are distinct from third party Platform Applications. If you use an PRX App or interact with a website that has deployed a plugin, you agree that information about you and your use of the Services, including, but not limited to, your device, your mobile carrier, your internet access provider, your physical location, and/or web pages containing PRX plugins that load in your browser may be communicated to ParksByNature.

In the event you change or deactivate your mobile account, you must promptly update your PRX account information to ensure that your messages are not sent to the person that acquires your old number and failure to do so is your responsibility. You acknowledge you are responsible for all charges and necessary permissions related to accessing PRX through your mobile access provider. Therefore, you should check with your provider to find out if the Services are available and the terms for these services for your specific mobile device.

If you use such functionality, you authorize ParksByNature to retain your Content on its servers, to reproduce, publish and make your Content available to anyone you notify (whether directly or indirectly, such as via a social networking site) about the availability of your Content, and to disclose the user name you submitted with your Content. In addition to the Upload Service, PRX may provide functionality through which you are able to receive other services from ParksByNature (such other services and the Upload Service, collectively, the “Extra Services”).

  • ParksByNature assumes no responsibility for monitoring PRX or the Services for inappropriate Content or conduct. If at any time ParksByNature chooses, in its sole discretion, to monitor PRX or the Services, ParksByNature nonetheless assumes no responsibility or liability for the Content, no obligation to modify or remove any inappropriate Content, and no responsibility for the conduct of the user submitting any such Content.
  • You are solely responsible for the Content you post on, through or in connection with PRX or the Services, and any material or information that you transmit to other PRX members and for you interactions with other users.
