Terms of Service

This is a legally binding agreement between you (or your organization) and Awarnys LLC, a Colorado Limited Liability Corporation (LLC). Please read it, because it is important. Suggestions and questions may be directed to support@awarnys.com.


We’re going to use some shorthand to make this easier to read. When we say “Service”, we mean Aviation® by Awarnys®. When we say “we”, “us”, or “our”, we mean Awarnys LLC, a Colorado LLC. When we say “you” or “your”, we mean you or the organization on behalf of which you are entering into this agreement. When we say “your content”, we mean any text, sound, graphics, data, files, or other material which you post, upload, or otherwise share via the Service; similarly, when we say “our content”, we mean the text, sound, graphics, data, files, software, and other material owned by us. And when we say “terms”, we mean these Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy.


Please read these terms before using Aviation® by Awarnys®. If you do not agree to them, you may not register for the Service. If we make material changes to these terms, we’ll let you know either through the Service or via email (at the email address you provide). If you do not agree to those changes, you may send a request to cancel your account to support@awarnys.com. If we do not hear from you within ten days, the revised terms will apply to you. Where applicable, these terms may be subject to the Wikimedia Foundation’s Terms of Use.

Notification of Copyright Infringement (DMCA)

We deal with copyright infringement in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). You may not post, upload, or otherwise place any content or information via the Service that belongs to a third party, unless you have the legal right to do so. If you believe that any such information or content has been posted via the Service, please send a notice of copyright infringement containing the following information to the designated agent at the address below:

  • A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
  • Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;
  • Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
  • Contact information for the notifying party, including name, address, telephone number, and email address;
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
  • A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
  • Upon notification of claimed infringement, we will respond expeditiously to remove, or disable access to, the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity. We will also notify the person who posted, uploaded, or otherwise placed the allegedly infringing material in the Service that we have removed or disabled access to such material.

If you believe that material has been removed improperly, you must send a written counter notification to the agent, and include:

  • A physical or electronic signature;
  • Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
  • A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification;
  • Your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which we may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the original notification or an agent of such person.

Upon receipt of a counter notification complying with these requirements, we will promptly provide the original reporter with a copy of the counter notification, and inform that person that we may replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it if we do not receive notice within ten business days that the original reporter is seeking a court order to prevent further infringement of the material at issue.

Disclaimer of Warranties

We will strive to prevent interruptions to Aviation® by Awarnys® and to be good stewards of your content. However, the Service is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. To the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, we disclaim all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including without limitation any warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. We do not make any warranty that the Service will meet your requirements, or that the Service will be uninterrupted, secure, or error-free, or that defects, if any, will be corrected; nor do we make any warranty as to the results that will be obtained from use of the Service. You understand that you download from or otherwise obtain content through the Service at your own discretion and risk. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from us or through the Service shall create any warranty not expressly made herein.

Limitations of Liability

Under no circumstances – including, without limitation, negligence – shall we be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages, resulting from (1) the use or the inability to use the Service; (2) the cost of procurement of substitute goods and services; (3) unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data; (4) loss of profits, use, savings, data, or other intangibles, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. You agree that we are not liable for any failure to deliver, hold or store data, information, materials or content transmitted through the Service.

We may, at our sole discretion, assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you. The assumption of such defense or control by us, however, shall not excuse any of your indemnity obligations.

These terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Colorado, without giving effect to its conflict of law provisions.

You agree that any claim or cause of action arising out of your use of the Service or these terms must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or it shall be forever barred, notwithstanding any statute of limitations or other law to the contrary. If any provision contained in these terms is determined unenforceable, then such provision will be severed and replaced with a new provision that most closely reflects the intent of the original provision, and the remaining provisions of these terms will remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of these terms shall be effective except pursuant to a written instrument signed by us expressly waiving compliance, and any such waiver shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose stated in such writing. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of these terms and/or your use of the Service. You may not assign any right, interest, or benefit provided under these terms or through the Service without our express prior written consent.
