The Ford Models mobile app and website have been made available by Ford Digital Inc. (“Ford Digital”). Ford Models, Inc. has permitted Ford Digital Inc. to use the Ford Models trademark in connection with the Ford Models mobile app and website. However, Ford Digital Inc. is entirely responsible for the operation of the Ford Models mobile app and website. The Ford Models mobile app and website connects talent (e.g., models, photographers and stylists, who are represented or unrepresented) (“Talent”) with talent seekers (e.g., retail and fashion brands, casting directors, and TV, magazines and media agencies) (“Talent Seekers”). The Terms of Service apply to Talent, Talent Seekers and others who access the Ford Models mobile app and website (“Users”).
According to these Terms of Service, Talent is permitted, among other things, (a) to digitally upload and manage their portfolio content; (b) to apply for castings; (c) to upload their previous work in which they have the right and license to do so to other Talent and Talent Seekers; and (d) to get scouted by Talent Seekers. According to these Terms of Service, Talent Seekers are permitted, among other things, (a) to host a casting; (b) to browse and view previous work uploaded by the Talent; (c) to search Talent content using advanced filtering; and (d) to video chat to scout talent.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, Ford Digital disclaims any responsibility or liability for any violation of such other obligations by you.
As part of the Services, Talent is permitted to instruct the Ford Models mobile app and website to send a digital invite to bookers and agencies.

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER LAW, FORD DIGITAL SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR OTHERS FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, OPPORTUNITIES, REPUTATION, PROFITS OR REVENUES, RELATED TO THE SERVICES (E.G., OFFENSIVE OR DEFAMATORY STATEMENTS, DOWN TIME OR LOSS, USE OR CHANGES TO YOUR INFORMATION OR CONTENT). IN NO EVENT SHALL THE LIABILITY OF FORD DIGITAL EXCEED, IN THE AGGREGATE FOR ALL CLAIMS, US $1,000. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS PART OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND FORD DIGITAL AND SHALL APPLY TO ALL CLAIMS OF LIABILITY (E.G. WARRANTY, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, CONTRACT, LAW) AND EVEN IF FORD DIGITAL HAS BEEN TOLD OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF THESE REMEDIES FAIL THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY, SO THESE LIMITS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You (and also any third party for whom you operate an account or activity on the Services) agree to defend (at Ford Digital’s request), indemnify and hold the Ford Digital parties harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including without limitation, reasonable attorney's fees and costs, arising out of or in any way connected with any of the following (including as a result of your direct activities on the Services or those conducted on your behalf): (i) your Content or your access to or use of the Services; (ii) your breach or alleged breach of these Terms of Service; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation, any intellectual property right, publicity, confidentiality, property or privacy right; (iv) your violation of any laws, rules, regulations, codes, statutes, ordinances or orders of any governmental and quasi-governmental authorities, including, without limitation, all regulatory, administrative and legislative authorities; or (v) any misrepresentation made by you.

You agree that the laws of New York, excluding its conflict of laws rules, shall exclusively govern any dispute relating to these Terms of Service. We both agree that all of these claims can only be litigated in the federal and state courts of New York County, New York, USA, and we each agree to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change these Terms of Service (“Updated Terms”) from time to time. You agree that we may notify you of the Updated Terms by posting them on the Services, and that your use of the Services after the effective date of the Updated Terms (or engaging in such other conduct as we may reasonably specify) constitutes your agreement to the Updated Terms. Therefore, you should review these Terms of Service and any Updated Terms before using the Services. The Updated Terms will be effective as of the time of posting, or such later date as may be specified in the Updated Terms, and will apply to your use of the Services from that point forward. These Terms of Service will govern any disputes arising before the effective date of the Updated Terms.
If a court with authority over these Terms of Service finds any part of it not enforceable, you and us agree that the court should modify the terms to make that part enforceable while still achieving its intent. If the court cannot do that, you and us agree to ask the court to remove that unenforceable part and still enforce the rest of these Terms of Service. To the extent allowed by law, the English version of this Agreement is binding and other translations are for convenience only. This Agreement (including additional terms that may be provided by us when you engage with a feature of the Services) is the only agreement between us regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements for the Services. If we don't act to enforce a breach of these terms of service, that does not mean that Ford Digital has waived its right to enforce these Terms of Service. You may not assign or transfer these (or your membership or use of Services) to anyone without our consent. However, you agree that Ford Digital may assign these Terms of Service to its affiliates or a party that buys it without your consent. There are no third party beneficiaries to these Terms of Service.
