Description of Service
Austin Visuals is a software tool that makes the business networking process easier by automatically connecting business individuals to each other through a pairing system. Any two people are connected by the number of qualities that they have in common. Based on specific criteria, we match business people from any existing social media group and when prompted, facilitate a phone, video or in-person meeting of a matching of business professionals. Patent Pending.
Austin Visuals’s websites and domains, including www.MyNetworkBuilder.com, www.AustinVisuals.com, and all of the webpages, subdomains, country level domain variants and subparts of those websites, including culture-FX.com (collectively, our “Site”), all of the services available on or through the Site or otherwise provided by us (including our application programming interfaces), and all of our free mobile applications (collectively, the “Applications”) are offered, maintained and provided by Austin Visuals. We refer to all of these as our “Services.” Austin Visuals is a Texas corporation with its principal place of business at 51 Rainey Street, Suite 2004 Austin TX 78701. (“Austin Visuals,” “us,” “we” or “our”).
Through the Services, Austin Visuals provides a simple and quick means for registered users who are business professionals and entrepreneurs who are looking to make lasting business connections and expand their network.
Austin Visuals service is not available to minors under the age of 18 or to any users suspended or removed from the system by Austin Visuals for any reason.

Information Provided on this Website
In many ways, Austin Visuals also serves as a search engine that extracts and summarizes information from other sources across the Internet. This information may be inaccurate and we may make mistakes when extracting the information. Austin Visuals assumes no responsibility regarding the accuracy of the information that is provided by Austin Visuals. Once we have collected information about a person / company, we combine multiple mentions of the same person into an individual Profile. The resulting Web Summaries are then made available to the public through Austin Visuals.
Additionally, Austin Visuals allows users to create and/or update their own Profile. Any information provided by a user to be part of his or her Profile will be available to the public as part of the Austin Visuals service. Users who create and/or update their own Profile can change or delete any information they provide if they choose to do so. Please use caution when posting personal identifiable information.
Access to Service
Use of manual or automated software, devices, or other processes to “crawl” or “spider” any web pages contained in the Austin Visuals website is strictly prohibited. You agree not to monitor or copy, or allow others to monitor or copy, our web pages or the content included herein. You also agree not to “frame” or otherwise simulate the appearance or function of this website. Furthermore, you agree not to take any action that interferes with the proper working of or places an unreasonable load on our infrastructure, including but not limited to unsolicited communications, attempts to gain unauthorized access, or transmission or activation of computer viruses.
Uploaded Emails – Third Party Platforms
Growing your network often begins with inviting your existing contacts to join you on a new network like Austin Visuals. Austin Visuals simplifies the process by providing an automated way to invite multiple people across a variety of communication platforms (other social networks, email accounts, etc.). Note: Austin Visuals is not liable for any communication made between our users and members of other networks or the networks themselves. Invitations originating from Austin Visuals to people outside of the network at the request of our current users are done entirely independent of Austin Visuals and therefore absolve Austin Visuals from damages or complaints that may be brought by a recipient or third-party platform.
Monitoring and Enforcement
While we have the right to monitor activity and content associated with Austin Visuals, we are not obligated to do so. And since we do not, and may not have the ability to, control or actively monitor content we don’t guarantee its accuracy, integrity or quality. Because community standards vary and individuals sometimes choose not to comply with our policies and practices, in the process of using our website, you may be exposed to content that you find offensive or objectionable. You can contact our Customer Service Department to let us know of content that you find objectionable. We may investigate the complaints and violations of our policies that come to our attention and may take any action that we believe is appropriate, including, but not limited to issuing warnings, removing the content or terminating accounts and/or subscriptions. However, because situations and interpretations vary, we also reserve the right not to take any action. Under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of, access to, or denial of access to any content on the website.
Consequences of cancellation
In the event of cancellation, both parties shall be obliged to restore any benefits already received in accordance with legal provisions, and issue any gains (e.g. interest). This means that all activity related to your profile becomes the sole possession of Austin Visuals including all efforts related to SEO, SEM, etc. So for example, if our SEO efforts get your profile ranked #1 on Google and you decide to cancel, the ranking by virtue of the profile (owned by Austin Visuals) becomes the possession of Austin Visuals. Austin Visuals has the right to use the profile ranking thereafter however it wishes.
By accepting this User Agreement, you agree to indemnify and otherwise hold harmless, its Austin Visuals officers, employees, agents, subsidiaries, affiliates and other partners from any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages resulting from i) your use of Austin Visuals; ii) unauthorized access to or alteration of your communications with or through Austin Visuals, or iii) any other matter relating to Austin Visuals. Any business transactions which may arise between users from their use of Austin Visuals are the sole responsibility of the users involved.
