If you have registered with Akana, the information collected by cookies is used to provide a more personalized experience on our website.

We may use this data to customize content for you that we think you might like, based on your usage patterns. We may also use it to improve the Services – for example, this data can tell us how often users use a particular feature of the Services, and we can use that knowledge to make the Services interesting to as many users as possible.
Will Akana Share Any of the Personal Information it Receives?
We do not rent or sell your Personal Information in personally identifiable form to anyone. We may share your Personal Information with third parties by: (i) anonymizing your Personal Information so that you are not individually identified and providing that information to our partners; (ii) providing aggregate usage information to our partners; (iii) sharing your Personal Information with affiliated businesses to the extent that it is related to a transaction or service provided to you in connection with the Services; and (iv) sharing Personal Information with other companies and people we employ to perform tasks on our behalf so that they can provide products or services to you.

Other Terms Applicable to the Services
Anything you post, upload, share, store, or otherwise provide through the Services is your “User Submission.” In order to display your User Submissions on the Services, and to allow other users to view them, you grant us and other users certain rights in those User Submissions. Subject to the Privacy section above with respect to Personal Information, you hereby grant Akana a license to display, perform, distribute, translate, modify (for technical purposes, for example making sure your content is viewable on an iPhone as well as a computer) and reproduce and otherwise act with respect to such User Submissions, in each case to enable us to operate the Services. This is a license only – your ownership in User Submissions is not affected. You agree that the licenses you grant are royalty-free, perpetual, sublicenseable, irrevocable, and worldwide.
The materials displayed or performed or available on or through the Services, including, but not limited to, text, data, photos, and User Submissions (all of the foregoing, the “Content”) are protected by copyright and/or other intellectual property laws. You will abide by all copyright notices, trademark rules, information, and restrictions contained in any Content you access through the Services, and you won’t use or exploit for any purpose any Content not owned by you, (i) without the prior consent of the owner of that Content or (ii) in a way that violates someone else’s (including Akana’s) rights.
You understand that Akana owns the Services. Except as expressly allowed by these Terms, you won’t modify, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale of, reproduce, create derivative works of, or otherwise exploit any of the Services.
The Services may allow you to copy or download certain Content; please remember that just because this functionality exists, doesn’t mean that all the restrictions above don’t apply.
Akana is free to terminate (or suspend access to) your use of the Services or your account, for any reason in our discretion, including your breach of these Terms. Please note that account termination may result in destruction of any Content associated with your account.
Provisions that, by their nature, should survive termination of these Terms shall survive termination. By way of example, all of the following will survive termination: any liability arising from your use of the Service, any limitations on our liability, any terms regarding ownership or intellectual property rights, terms regarding disputes, and the “Disclaimer” and “Miscellaneous” sections.
If there is a dispute between participants on this site, or between users and any third party, you agree that Akana is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users, you release Akana, its officers, employees, agents, and successors from claims, demands, and damages of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and/or our Services. If you are a California resident, you shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
Warranty Disclaimer. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE SERVICES AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED BY AKANA (AND ITS LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS) ON AN “AS-IS” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THAT USE OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.
Limitation of Liability. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY SHALL AKANA (OR ITS LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS) BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR (B) ANY AMOUNT, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF $100, OR (III) ANY MATTER BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL.
Etc. You may not assign, delegate or transfer these Terms or your rights or obligations hereunder, or your Services account, in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without Akana’s prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms and our rights and obligations without consent. These Terms are governed by and will be construed under the laws of the State of California, without regard to the conflicts of laws provisions thereof. For all purposes of this Agreement, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state or federal courts located in, respectively, Los Angeles County, California, or the Southern District of California. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. There are no third party beneficiaries intended under these Terms. These Terms are the only agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter herein; provided, however, that these Terms do not supersede any other agreements we may have with you with respect to different subject matter, including without limitation any software license we have entered into with you.
