Terms of Use


Comic Rocket Terms of Use

1. The Comic Rocket Site

Welcome to the comic-rocket.com website (the “Service”). The Service is owned by Zinofile Inc. dba Comic Rocket (“Comic Rocket” or “us”). These Terms of Use (“Terms”) apply to your use of the Service. If you wish to use the Service, even if you only browse the Service and do not register, you must agree to these Terms. If you do not agree to the Terms, any use of the Service by you is unauthorized, and you should stop accessing the Service immediately. Your continued use of the Service will constitute assent to these Terms. Registering as a Comic Rocket user will confirm your assent.

2. How It Works

Comic Rocket indexes and makes available through a proprietary comics reader a multitude of digital comics content ("Content"). The Service is intended for your personal entertainment and enjoyment. Unless you are a comics creator or a business partner of Comic Rocket’s, you may not use the Service for any commercial purpose, including but not limited to buying, selling, advertising or offering goods or services. Creating and posting an occasional link to a third-party site that charges a fee for access, or otherwise is engaged in commercial activity, is not a violation of this policy, provided that you do not directly or indirectly receive any consideration for posting such link. (Comics creators may contact us directly at info@comic-rocket.com with any questions about their use of the Service for commercial purposes).

3. Restrictions on Content

You agree not to make any use of the Service to post or transmit any Content that is unlawful under the laws, statutes, ordinances, or regulations (“Laws”) of any jurisdiction to which you or Comic Rocket are subject, or promotes activity that is unlawful under the Laws of any jurisdiction to which you or Comic Rocket are subject, or contains or transmits any viruses, trojan horses, trap doors, back doors, easter eggs, worms, time bombs, packet bombs, cancelbots or other computer programs or routines that damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information. The foregoing list is not necessarily exhaustive of types of Content we may deem inappropriate for the Service, in our sole discretion.

4. Restrictions on Activities

You agree not to make any use of the Service for any activity that is unlawful under the Laws of any jurisdiction to which you or Comic Rocket are subject, or that interferes with the operation of the Service or places an undue burden on it.

5. Representations About Content

You agree to be responsible for all Content posted to the Service under your username or authorization. You represent and warrant to Comic Rocket that you are either the owner of any Content posted under your username and password on the Service, or that you have all the rights necessary to grant the license set out in Section 6 of these Terms. You agree to pay any royalties or other sums owing to any third party for Content posted by you or under your password, and to indemnify and hold harmless Comic Rocket from any claims, costs or liability incurred as the result of your violation of these Terms.

6. License to Content

You retain all ownership rights in any Content posted or transmitted by you through the Service to which you are entitled by law, and Comic Rocket does not claim any ownership rights in any Content posted or transmitted by you through the Service. However, when you post any Content to the Service, you grant to Comic Rocket a non-exclusive, fully paid, royalty-free license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, and publicly display or perform such Content on the Service. It is necessary for you to grant this license in order for Comic Rocket to operate the Service. You may terminate the license to any particular Content by deleting it from the Service.

7. Monitoring of Content

Comic Rocket has no obligation to monitor user Content. However, Comic Rocket has the right and ability to perform such monitoring, and the right (but not the obligation) to reject or remove any Content which violates these Terms.

8. Trademarks and Service Marks

13. Creators’ Rights, Copyright Notice and Takedown Policy.

As part of Comic Rocket’s Service, we link to the websites of thousands of comics creators. Except where expressly permitted by specific agreement with the creator, we never modify any creator layout or content. We post clearly on our site that copyrights to creators’ work are the property of the creators and we do not claim any right to such work.

Links between our Site and comics creators’ sites can occur in two ways, either they can be crowd-sourced (added by one of our users) or they can be added directly by the creator or by an agent of the creator. A creator always has the right to opt in or out of our Service. If you are a creator and your work has been listed in our index, you may edit or contribute additional information to our index by using the author tools, or you may ask us to remove your work from the index by sending an email to info@comic-rocket.com

If you are a comics creator or any other copyright owner and you believe your work has been copied and used improperly on Comic Rocket’s service, please contact our copyright compliance officer. Please provide the following information: (1) physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner; (2) description of the work you claim has been infringed and the location of the alleged infringement on the Comic Rocket Service; (3) your contact information including address, telephone number and e-mail address; (4) a written statement that you have a good faith belief the accused usage is infringing; and (5) a statement by you under penalty of perjury that the information in the notice is accurate and that you are duly authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner. Contact our copyright compliance officer: Copyright Compliance, c/o Comic Rocket, via email at info@comic-rocket.com

14. Severability & Waiver

The invalidity of any term or provision of these Terms will not affect the validity of any other provision. Waiver by Comic Rocket of strict performances of any provision of these Terms will not be a waiver of or prejudice Comic Rocket’s right to require strict performance of the same provision in the future or of any other provision of these Terms.

15. Entire Agreement; Modifications to Agreement

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us as to their subject matter, and there are no other terms, conditions, or obligations between the parties relating to the use of the Service, other than those contained in these Terms. These Terms shall not be interpreted or construed to confer any rights or remedies on any third parties.

Comic Rocket may modify these Terms, for example, to reflect changes to the law or changes to our Service. Any changes to these Terms will be posted on this page and will be announced to registered users of our Service. If we make changes to these Terms in the future and you do not agree with the changes, you should discontinue using the Service.
