I. SERVICES – HOW TO USE POWDER
Powder allows you to create and view highlights from recorded gameplay on various online, PC and console video games (“Game Content”). The Platform, using Powder’s proprietary AI, gives registered users (“Users”) the ability to identify, create and accumulate their best clips from gaming sessions (“Clips”), including sessions streamed through third party platforms like Twitch and YouTube (collectively, “Third Party Platforms”). The Platform also allows Users to share and interact with those Clips.
If you use the Platform without creating an Account, you are a “Viewer” for purposes of this Agreement, and you will be unable to use features of the platform that require an Account.
Except for those Sections that are specifically limited to Users (such as Sections II and III), references to “you” or “your” in this Agreement refer to you, regardless of whether you are a Viewer or a User.
We only share Clips when we have been authorized to do so by the applicable User. If you want to see the full stream from which the Clip was taken, the Platform will, whenever applicable, use commercially reasonable efforts to link to the stream on the Third Party Platform. You may be required to establish an account with such Third Party Platform in order to view the stream on the Third Party Platform.

If you do, you agree that your username, bio, and profile picture comply with this Agreement and our Community Guidelines. We may take down (and/or request that you change) your username, bio, and profile picture if we determine in our sole discretion that either violates these Terms and/or the Community Guidelines.
You may never use another's Account without permission or permit another to use your Account. You may not create more than one Account. You are prohibited from registering a new Account if you have previously had an Account terminated.
You are responsible for (i) keeping confidential any password that you created to use any aspect of the Platform requiring registration and (ii) restricting access to your computer or mobile device.

If you file a DMCA counter-notice when your use is infringing, you could be liable for costs and attorneys’ fees. If you are unsure whether your use of the content at issue amounts to infringement, you should contact an attorney.
If a counter-notice is received by our Copyright Agent, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the complaining party informing that person that we may re-enable the subject content in 10 business days.

USERS FROM CALIFORNIA
This section pertains to the rights of individuals or households in California (“California consumers”).
Under certain circumstances, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 states that, upon receipt of a request by a California consumer, a business may be required to provide detailed information regarding how that business has shared that customer’s Personal Information with third parties for direct marketing purposes. However, the foregoing does not apply to businesses like ours that do not disclose Personal Information to third parties for direct marketing purposes.
The CCPA (California Civil Code Section 1798.100 et seq.) provides California consumers with additional rights regarding Personal Information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly with a particular consumer or household. The categories of Personal Information we collect are generally described above but differ for individual consumers depending on the services used by such consumers.
Under the CCPA, qualifying California consumers may have the following rights:
Right to Know and Right to Delete.
- A California consumer has the right to request that we disclose what Personal Information we collect, use, disclose and sell. A California consumer also has the right to submit requests to delete Personal Information.
- When we receive a valid request to know or delete from a California consumer, we will confirm receipt of the request within 10 days and provide information about how we will process the request, including our verification process. We will respond to such requests within 45 days.
Right for Disclosure of Information.
- A California consumer may also submit requests that we disclose specific types or categories of Personal Information that we collect.
- Under certain circumstances, we will not provide such information, including where the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable and unreasonable risk to the security of that Personal Information, customers’ account with us, or the security of our systems or networks. We also will not disclose California consumers’ social security numbers, driver’s license numbers or other government-issued identification numbers, financial account numbers, any health insurance or medical identification numbers, or account passwords and security questions and answers.
If you are a California consumer and would like to make any requests under the CCPA, please see the “Changing and Deleting Personal Information” the section.
If we receive any request we will use a two-step process for online requests where the California consumer must first, clearly submit the request and then second, separately confirm the request. We will use other appropriate measures to verify requests received by mail or telephone. To verify a request, a California consumer must provide a business with sufficient information to identify the consumer, such as name, e-mail address, home or work address, or other such information that is on record with us so that we can match such information to the Personal Information that we maintain. . If requests are unclear or submitted through means other than outline above, we will provide the California consumer with specific directions on how to submit the request or remedy any deficiencies. If we cannot verify the identity of the requestor, we may deny the request.
