Website Terms of Service
DRVNBLSD.COM SERVICE USER AGREEMENT
Hi! You are now reading Driven x Blessed’s Terms of Service, meaning the contract between you and Driven x Blessed when you use Driven x Blessed’s site, services, and products. You should read this carefully before you use Driven x Blessed. We’ve tried to be fair and straightforward. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to e-mail us. We’ve also included several annotations; these annotations aren’t a part of the contract itself, but are intended to help you follow the text and emphasize key sections.
A few highlights before we get started:
Using our Service, User Conduct, and Your Content
Anything you post on Driven x Blessed is public. So make sure you’re comfortable with the idea that anyone can view anything you post here.
You shouldn’t post any content or use our service to do anything illegal or malicious.
If it turns out any of your content or use is illegal or malicious, we are not responsible — you’re responsible.
Please do not hack, attack, or copy our Service.
While we wouldn’t do it without good reason, ultimately we may remove your content or terminate or suspend your account at our sole discretion.
You can help protect yourself by not posting personal information – remember that once information is posted on the Internet, it can be very hard to remove it.
Driven x Blessed respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects users and contributors to do the same. We will respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement where necessary as set forth in our copyright policy.
You own the content that you provide to Driven x Blessed. However, Driven x Blessed may modify, distribute or use that content in a variety of ways. For example, your content may be formatted or combined with other content to create a feature or customized article, or selected to be featured on the Driven x Blessed site, or on another partner site by a staff member or editor.
Warranty, Disclaimer, Limitations of Liability, Other Legal Stuff
These are terms that the lawyers make us include to ensure that we are not at risk for significant liabilities. Since we are offering the Service free of charge, we hope you’ll understand.
Whenever we make any updates to these Terms, we will update them here, and use reasonable efforts to communicate any material changes to affected users.
Without further delay, here are our Terms of Service, please enjoy:
Welcome to Driven x Blessed! These are the terms under which we provide you the Driven x Blessed Service (it’s a legal contract between you and us – so please read it carefully). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at:
The Driven x Blessed website (www.Drvnblsd.com) and our services, domains, products, content and applications (collectively the “Service”) are operated by Driven x Blessed LLC, a Houston limited liability company (“Driven x Blessed”, “Drvnblsd”, “we” or “our”).
If you do not agree with this Agreement, please do not continue the registration/download process of use the Service.
No individual under the age of 13 may use the Service or supply us with their personal information. You otherwise may only use the Service if you can form a binding contract with Driven x Blessed and are not legally prohibited from using the Service. You agree to this Agreement on behalf of yourself and, at your discretion, on behalf of a minor child over the age of 13 for whom you are a parent or guardian and who you have authorized to use the account you create on the Service. Parents and guardians of users under the age of 18 will be responsible for their minor user’s use of the Service and any violation of this Agreement.
If you open an account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) “you” includes you and that entity, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are authorized to grant all permissions and licenses provided in this Agreement and bind the entity to this Agreement, and that you agree to this Agreement on the entity’s behalf.
ACCESSING THE SERVICE
To use our Service you will need a compatible device, including compatible operating system, as well as internet or mobile service connectivity, and a valid version of the then-current Driven x Blessed Service software. You are solely responsible for paying any service fees associated with any such access (including text messaging and data charges for each text message and any data you send and receive on your device). We may modify this Agreement and the Service as set forth below in the Section entitled “Modification/Termination.”
You agree to comply with all applicable laws and to respect third party rights in your use of our Service.
ACCOUNTS, REGISTRATION, CANCELLATION
In order to register for a Driven x Blessed account, you will need to complete the registration process by providing us with complete and accurate information as we request in the registration process. You are responsible for keeping your registration data complete, accurate and up-to-date, and any loss caused by your failure to do so is your responsibility. After completing the registration process, we may ask you to choose a user name and password, and you are also responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account, and for all activities that occur under your account. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your account, and agree that we are not liable for any loss that you may incur as a result of someone else using your password or account.
We may suspend or terminate your account and/or suspend our Service to you if we have a reasonable belief that it is being used in connection with fraudulent activity, or you breach this Agreement in any way or for any other reason we determine in our sole discretion. You may cancel your account at any time by notifying Customer Service at
LICENSE TO SERVICE
Subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Driven x Blessed hereby grants you a limited, personal, private, non-commercial, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable, revocable right to use the Service. All rights not expressly granted to you are reserved.
We do not control and are not responsible for any information or other materials delivered through our Service by you or other users, including without limitation all video, audio, photographs, images, illustrations, animations, logos, names, tools, written posts, replies, comments, information, data, text, software, scripts, executable files and graphics (collectively, “User Materials”). If you submit content to us by any means (via on-line submission, e-mail, etc.) for use on our Service, these terms apply unless we otherwise agree in writing.
You retain ownership of all intellectual property rights in your User Materials, and third parties retain all ownership of all intellectual property rights in their User Materials.
Your License to Driven x Blessed
When you transfer User Materials to Driven x Blessed through the Service (or otherwise transfer them to us for use on the Service), you give Driven x Blessed and its designees a non-exclusive, worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable right and license to use, host, store, cache, reproduce, publish, display (publicly or otherwise), perform (publicly or otherwise), distribute, transmit, modify, adapt (including, without limitation, in order to conform it to the requirements of any networks, devices, services, or media through which the Service is available), and create derivative works of such User Materials. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating the Service in accordance with its functionality, improving the Service, and allowing Driven x Blessed to develop new Services.
You also agree that this license includes the right for Driven x Blessed to make all User Materials available to third parties selected by Driven x Blessed, so that those third parties can distribute and/or analyze such User Materials on other media and services. For example, we may license a feed of already-publicly-available User Materials to a partner, similar to how Twitter makes feeds available through its streaming API.
Note also that this license to your User Materials continues even if you stop using the Service, or terminate this Agreement, primarily because of the social nature of User Materials shared through the Service – when you post something publicly, others may choose to repost or comment on it, making your User Materials part of a social conversation that cannot later be erased without retroactively censoring the speech of others.
Always remember: When you make something publicly available on the Internet, it becomes practically impossible to take down all copies of it.
You also agree that you will respect the intellectual property rights of others, and represent that you have all of the necessary rights to grant us this license for all User Materials you submit to the Service.
Upon Termination, Deactivation and Deletion
Following termination or deactivation of your account, or if you remove any User Materials from Driven x Blessed, we may retain your User Materials for a commercially reasonable period of time for backup, archival, or audit purposes. Furthermore, Driven x Blessed and its users may retain and continue to use, store, display, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute any of your User Materials that we or other users have stored or shared through Driven x Blessed.
Other than those we specifically request, we do not accept unsolicited content or suggestions. This is to avoid any misunderstandings if your ideas are similar to those we have developed or obtained independently. However, if you submit any unsolicited content or suggestions to us, you will be deemed to have granted to us the same rights as are set out in this section with respect to User Materials. Without limiting those rights, you agree that Driven x Blessed, our affiliates and our licensees are free to use any information contained in any communication you send to us for any purpose whatsoever without your approval and without any credit, notice or compensation to you.

This Agreement gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. The disclaimers, exclusions, and Limitations of Liability under this Agreement will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
h.) The Service is operated from facilities in the United States and is intended for use in the United States.

10. Indemnification. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Driven x Blessed, its affiliates, licensors and Service providers, and its and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, suppliers, successors and assigns from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses or fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or relating to your violation of these Terms of Service or your use of the Service or Platform, including, but not limited to, your User Content, any use of the Platform’s content, Services and products other than as expressly authorized in these Terms of Service or your use of any information obtained from the Service or Platform.
11. Governing Law, Arbitration, and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
a.) Governing Law. You agree that the Service is and shall be deemed based in Texas only. And the Service is and shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to any jurisdiction whatsoever respecting Marketplace in other jurisdictions. This contract and these Terms of Service shall be governed by the laws of the State of Texas without regard to conflict of laws principles. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Brazoria County, Texas for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, violation, or misappropriation of our intellectual property or proprietary rights, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that Brazoria County, Texas is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
b.) Arbitration. For any dispute with Driven x Blessed, you agree to first contact us at and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Driven x Blessed has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms of Service, or the breach or alleged breach thereof by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration will be conducted in Brazoria County, Texas, unless you and Driven x Blessed expressly agree in writing otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying its own costs and fees. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing herein shall be deemed as preventing Driven x Blessed from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.
c.) Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver. With respect to all persons and entities, regardless of whether they have obtained or used the Service for personal, commercial or other purposes, all claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action or other representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration, and, unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims. You agree that, by entering into this agreement, you and Marketplace are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding of any kind.
a.) Termination. You may terminate your account simply by discontinuing usage. Driven x Blessed may terminate, suspend, edit or bar access to your account and all Service without advance notice and without liability for any reason whatsoever or no reason, our sole discretion. If your account is terminated for no reason, we may, in our sole discretion, refund unearned payments. All provisions of the Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
b.) Assignment. Your Service and access to our Platform and these Terms or Service, including any and all rights and licenses granted hereunder, are personal to you and may not be transferred or assigned by you. Your account and all rights therein may be assigned by Driven x Blessed without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation of these provisions shall be null and void.
c.) Exclusions. Some jurisdictions’ laws do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, or a waiver of jury trial or class actions, so all provisions hereof which would be violate laws of such jurisdictions are to be disregarded in those jurisdictions. Thus, some of the limitations, exclusions and waivers above may not apply to you.
d.) Changes to these Terms of Service. We reserve the right, at any time and in our sole discretion, to modify, change, amend or update these Terms so you should review this page regularly. When we change these Terms in a material manner, we will update the ‘last modified’ date at the top of this page and notify you that material changes have been made to these Terms of Service. Your continued use of the Service after any such change constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Service. If you do not agree to any of these terms or any future Terms of Service, do not use or access (or continue to access) the Service or the Platform.
e.) Notification Procedures. Driven x Blessed may provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business related purposes, to you via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through posting of such notice on our website, as determined by Driven x Blessed in our sole discretion. Driven x Blessed reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our Users, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification as described in these Terms. Driven x Blessed is not responsible for any automatic filtering you or your network provider may apply to email notifications we send to the email address you provide us.
f.) Severability. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.
g.) Entire Agreement These Terms, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Driven x Blessed in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Marketplace concerning the Service.
h.) No Waiver. No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Marketplace’ failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
i.) Expiration of Claims. Notwithstanding and other statute of limitations, you agree that any claim or cause of action you may have with respect to Marketplace or the Service must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arose.
