Discogs.com ("Discogs", the "Service"), owned and operated by Zink Media, Inc. ("Zink Media"), is provided to you ("Member") under these Terms of Service (TOS) and any operating rules or policies that may be published by Discogs.

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
Discogs provides Member with various content and communication services, including but not limited to the capability to post information to a web page and participate in web-based discussions. Some of these services will be free of charge, others may cost money or have other requirements. The requirements or fees for any service or option will be clearly explained and separately agreed to when Member implements those options, if any. Member must: (1) provide all equipment, including a computer and modem, necessary to establish a connection to the World Wide Web; (2) provide for own access to the World Wide Web and pay any telephone service fees associated with such access.
MODIFICATIONS TO TERMS OF SERVICE
Discogs may at any time revise the TOS by updating this posting. By using Discogs, Member agrees to be bound by any such revisions and should therefore periodically visit this page to determine the then-current TOS to which you are bound. Member's continued use of Discogs constitutes an affirmative: (1) acknowledgment by Member of the TOS and TOS modifications; and (2) agreement by Member to abide and be bound by the TOS and TOS modifications.
MODIFICATIONS TO SERVICE
Discogs reserves the right to modify or discontinue the Service with or without notice to Member. Discogs shall not be liable to Member or any third party should Discogs exercise TOS right to modify or discontinue the Service.
You agree to indemnify and hold Discogs, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, co-branders or other partners, and employees, harmless from any alleged claim or demand, including reasonable attorney fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Service, your connection to the Service, your violation of the TOS, or your violation of any rights of another, whether you are a registered user or not. The user is solely responsible for his or her actions when using the Service, including, but not limited to, costs incurred for Internet access.
MEMBER ACCOUNT, PASSWORD, AND SECURITY
Once you become a member of the Service, you shall receive a password and an account. You are entirely responsible if you do not maintain the confidentiality of your password and account. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities which occur under your account. You may change your password at any time; you may also set up a new account and close an old one at your convenience.
Member agrees to immediately notify Discogs of any unauthorized use of Member's account or any other breach of security known to Member.
You agree that Discogs, in its sole descretion, may terminate your password or account, and remove and discard any content within the Service, for any reason, including and without limitation, the lack of use, or if Discogs finds that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of the TOS. You agree that any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of this TOS may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that Discogs may immediately deactivate or delete your Discogs account and any or all related information and files. Discogs reserves the right to bar any further access to such files or the Service. You agree that Discogs shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any termination of your access to the Service. Advanced accounts that are terminated will not be refunded.
Should Member object to any terms and conditions of the TOS or any subsequent modifications thereto or become dissatisfied with the Service in any way, Member's only recourse is to immediately discontinue use of the Service.
Upon termination of the Service, Member's right to use the Service and Software immediately ceases. Member shall have no right and Discogs will have no obligation thereafter to forward any unread or unsent messages to Member or any third party.
All notices to a party shall be in writing and shall be made either via email or conventional mail. Discogs may broadcast notices or messages through the Service to inform Member of changes to the TOS, the Service, or other matters of importance; such broadcasts shall constitute notice to Member.
