Often over-simplified to pithy definitions, the individuals that make up Mav Farm may, for now, be seen as creatives, dissidents, explorers, non-conformists, athletes, scientists, pioneers and revolutionaries.
Mav Farm's mission is to help power a sustainable and decentralized networked economy and universe built on renewable energies and creative expression. We believe in change through accountability, debate, ambition and respect for the communities and individualities that make up our networked universe(s).
We support experimenting with new ways of creating video while respecting the old, new ways of collecting and sharing personal items, of stimulating interactions between people, places and ideas. We’re about supporting collective values and never dismissing individualism. We respect every individual's instinctive desire for freedom and privacy. We support cryptocurrencies and blockchain to avoid centralizing information and to allow the Mav Farm experience to be as transparent and democratic as possible.
The phrase "the edge is still out there" is posted on our walls, reminding us that there is no honest way to explain "the edge" because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. We'll continue to break all the rules (including our own).
Bug the intern! Drop him a line with general comments, questions, concerns, issues (grab a tissue) and we'll get back to you ASAP.
If you're a brand, retailer or camera company requesting information about partnerships with Lost Show, please head to www.lost.show to fill out a request.
The intern will respond as soon as possible (hopefully)!
Chaos cannot be managed. Is there a better way? Break the walls. Tear them down.

Through the Service we collect “Non-Personal Information” and “Personal Information.” Non-Personal Information includes information that cannot be used to personally identify you, such as your IP address, information about your device, anonymous usage data, general demographic information we may collect, preferences you submit and preferences that are generated based on the data you submit. Personal Information includes information that can be linked to a specific individual, such as a name, address, phone number, payment information, email address, login information for third party sites and other information which you submit to us through the Service.
Information You Provide Us
When you create an Account using the Services, we will ask you to provide us with your phone number. When using the Services you can elect to provide us with your email address, first name, last name, address, and photos of yourself. In addition, if you want to be able to purchase products via the Services, we will also collect your email address, first name, last name and shipping address and our third party payment processor will collect your credit card information and billing address.
Information Collected Automatically from Your Use of the Service
In connection with your use of the Service, we will obtain information about the device you use to access the Service, including without limitation the hardware model, operating system and version, browser type, mobile network information and IP address.

We also use “pixel tags” (also referred to as clear gifs or web beacons). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that are used to track online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s device, pixel tags are embedded invisibly in web pages. Pixel tags also allow us to tell whether e-mails we send to users have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users.
Our Policies Concerning Children
We are committed to complying with all aspects of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). We do not knowingly collect or solicit Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register an Account on our Services.

If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under the age of 13, please send a detailed message to email@example.com.
HOW WE USE AND SHARE INFORMATION
Personal Information you provide to us is used to help us communicate with you and to provide you with the Service. For example, we use Personal Information to: (i) register and service your Account, (ii) solicit feedback and respond to your questions, (iii) provide technical support, (iv) inform you about products, promotional offers, contests and events, (v) enhance our data security and fraud prevention capabilities, and (vi) create aggregated statistical data. We may also share your Personal Information with our third party service providers (e.g., payment processors, hosting or web service providers, software developers, etc.) in order to allow them to provide services to us with respect to the Service. If you elect to purchase products from Brands or Retailers on the Services, we will transmit Personal Information to such Brands and Retailers as necessary in order to allow them to process your transaction. We have mechanisms in place to ensure that any third parties with whom we share your Personal Information maintain the confidentiality and security of that information. These third parties are prohibited from using your Personal Information for any purpose other than to provide assistance to the Services.

4. YOUR CONTENT
5. PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS
5.1 Purchasing Products. If you elect to purchase any products featured on the Services, you authorize Mav Farm to transmit your payment information to our third party payment processor to process the transaction. All information that you provide in connection with a purchase must be accurate, complete, and current. You agree to pay all charges incurred by users of your credit card, debit card, or other payment method used in connection with the purchase of products at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. You will pay any applicable taxes relating to such purchases or other monetary transaction interactions. Delinquent payments may bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) from the payment due date until paid in full. You will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Mav Farm in collecting delinquent amounts, except where the delinquent amounts are due to billing inaccuracies.
5.2 Returns and Refunds. You may return many products sold on the Services. When you return a product, your refund and how your refund is issued may differ based on the condition of the product, how long you’ve had the product, how the product was purchased and the Brand’s or Retailer’s specific guidelines for refunds.

For more specific info on returns and refunds, please refer to the Brand’s or Retailer’s refund policies located at their website or the refund info the Brand or Retailer provided in or together with the product’s original package. Returns and refunds of products picked up at a Retailer are subject to that Retailer's policies.
6. TERMS APPLICABLE TO BRANDS
6.1 Definitions. As used in this Section 6, an “Engagement” means the act of a Consumer adding a product to their shopping cart on the Services, and “Engagement Rate” means a percentage of the retail price of the product or products involved in 100 Engagements.
6.2 Collection and Remittance of Sales Amounts. When Consumers purchase products via the shopping cart functionality provided by the Services, Mav Farm collects the purchase price via its third party payment processor. At the end of each calendar month, Mav Farm then remits to each Brand an amount equal to the total sales of that Brand’s products on the Services that month minus payment processing costs, outstanding credit amounts due to Consumer(s), and Mav Farm’s costs, which are calculated based on the Engagement Rate.
Here's an example. Consider the following situation:
(1) a given Brand sells three different items on Mav Farm - Item A, Item B and Item C;
(2) Item A has a retail price of $70 and receives 1001 Engagements;
(3) Item B has a retail price of $120 and receives 92 Engagements;
(4) Item C has a retail price of $30 and receives 0 engagements; and
(5) the Engagement Rate is 250%
Mav Farm’s costs would be calculated as follows:
(1001 x $70 x 2.5 / 100) + (92 x $120 x 2.5 / 100) + (0 x $30 x 2.5 / 100) = $2027.75.
You may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out the current amount of the Engagement Rate. Mav Farm may lower the Engagement Rate at any time without notice. Mav Farm will provide Brands with thirty (30) days prior notice of any increase in the Engagement Rate.
7. TERMS APPLICABLE TO RETAILERS
7.1 Commissions. Mav Farm charges Retailers a commission at the end of each month for allowing Consumers to reserve and pick-up products locally at the Retailer’s locations. Retailer may subscribe to a monthly commissions plan that covers all reservations placed in that month, or elect for a commission to be assessed on each individual reservation. Note that commissions are assessed once the user Consumer completes the reservation on the Services, and Mav Farm shall have no liability to Retailers if the Consumer does not actually complete the sale transaction by picking up the product at the Retailer location. For more information about commissions rates and subscription plans is available on the Website at www.mav.farm/#pricing.
7.2 Payment. If you subscribe to a monthly commissions plan or otherwise incur commission charges on the Services, you authorize Mav Farm to transmit your payment information to our third party payment processor to process the transaction.

Delinquent payments may bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) from the payment due date until paid in full. You will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Mav Farm in collecting delinquent amounts, except where the delinquent amounts are due to billing inaccuracies.

11. ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
This Section includes an arbitration agreement and an agreement that all claims will be brought only in an individual capacity (and not as a class action or other representative proceeding). Please read it carefully. You may opt out of the arbitration agreement by following the opt out procedure described below.
11.1. Informal Process First. You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and Mav Farm, you will first contact Mav Farm and make a good faith sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal means of resolution, including without limitation any court action.
11.2 Arbitration Agreement. After the informal dispute resolution process any remaining dispute, controversy, or claim (collectively, “Claim”) relating in any way to your use of Mav Farm’s services and/or products, including the Services, or relating in any way to the communications between you and Mav Farm or any other user of the Services, will be finally resolved by binding arbitration. This mandatory arbitration agreement applies equally to you and Mav Farm. However, this arbitration agreement does not (a) govern any Claim by Mav Farm for infringement of its intellectual property or access to the Service that is unauthorized or exceeds authorization granted in these Terms or (b) bar you from making use of applicable small claims court procedures in appropriate cases. If you are an individual you may opt out of this arbitration agreement within thirty (30) days of the first of the date you access or use this Service by following the procedure described below.
11.3 No Judge or Jury. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration. Instead, the dispute is resolve by a neutral arbitrator. Court review of an arbitration award is limited. Except to the extent the parties agree otherwise, arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Mav Farm are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision will survive any termination of these Terms.
11.3 Arbitration Rules. If you wish to begin an arbitration proceeding, after following the informal dispute resolution procedure, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to 1837 N La Brea, Apt. 12, Los Angeles, CA 90046. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules including, if you are an individual, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. If you are not an individual or have used the Services on behalf of an entity, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will not be used. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.
11.5. Conduct of the Arbitration. The number of arbitrators will be one. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
11.6. Fees. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. If you are an individual and have not accessed or used the Service on behalf of an entity, we will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000, unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous, and we will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
11.7. Interpretation. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, unconscionability, arbitrability, enforceability, or formation of this arbitration agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this arbitration agreement is void or voidable. However, the preceding sentence will not apply to the “Class Action Waiver” section below.
11.8 Opting-Out. If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with Mav Farm and you are an individual, you may opt out of this arbitration agreement by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org within thirty (30) days of the first of the date you access or use the Service.
11.9. Class Action Waiver. Any Claim must be brought in the respective party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, representative, multiple plaintiff, or similar proceeding (“Class Action”). The parties expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. If the Claim is subject to arbitration, the arbitrator will not have authority to combine or aggregate similar claims or conduct any Class Action nor make an award to any person or entity not a party to the arbitration. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. The parties understand that any right to litigate in court, to have a judge or jury decide their case, or to be a party to a class or representative action, is waived, and that any claims must be decided individually, through arbitration. If this class action waiver is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of the Arbitration Agreement, if otherwise effective, will be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and Mav Farm each waive any right to a jury trial.
12. GENERAL PROVISIONS
12.3. Export Laws. You agree that you will not export or re-export, directly or indirectly the Services and/or other information or materials provided by Mav Farm hereunder, to any country for which the United States or any other relevant jurisdiction requires any export license or other governmental approval at the time of export without first obtaining such license or approval.

1% For The Planet and Protect Our Winters
We believe in change through accountability and the respect for the individuality and communality within the network.
Participation would not be possible without awareness and care for our environment.
We understand that there are outdated but powerful world systems that attempt to control our behavior and can make us lose faith in the relationship between humans and our habitat.
Still, Mav Farm believes that these systems can be challenged through creativity, ambition and the love for that mouthful of fresh air, pavement, water, dirt or powder.
Because if we manage to become more aware of the simple factors that shape our human experiences, we will move from greed to empathy. After all:
“This land is your land. This land is my land…”

Our Mission for a Sustainable Internet
While much of today’s network infrastructure was built atop the infrastructures of the 19th century industrial economy, that infrastructure wasn’t necessarily built to last. While it’s amazing and wonderful and ridiculous that it has lasted, it can’t last much longer under the strain of exponentially expanding connectivity demands. The impact of the data centers isn’t something that really galvanizes the public, partly because that impact typically happens at a remove from everyday life. Different online activities have different energy impacts.
The average amount of power to charge a phone or a laptop is negligible, but the amount of power required to stream a video or use an app on either device invokes services from data centers distributed across the globe, each of which uses energy to perform various processes that travel through the network to the device.
If we want better, more sustainable technologies to be part of our future we need to focus not only on internal operations of our data-centers’ power-usage effectiveness (PUE), but also and more importantly on the proportional environmental impact of our operations. This is to say, we must demand our data centers’ energy comes from renewable and sustainable sources.
And while underwriting the cost of renewable energy sources might be laudable, it only addresses one kind of environmental impact, focused on one particular set of metrics. It doesn't address things like water usage, pollution from backup generators, supply chains for the rare earth minerals used in hardware, and the toxic materials involved in the production of this hardware.
The Internet is the single biggest thing we’re building as a species. This is something if we build it the right way, with the right sources of energy, it could really help power our transition to renewable energy and a sustainable economy and earth.
Founded in 2016, Mav Farm's mission is to help power a sustainable networked economy and universe built on renewable energies. We believe in change through accountability, creativity, ambition and the respect for the communities and individuals that make up our networked universe(s).
Mav Farm opposes pithy definitions, which often over-simplify the individuals that make up our cultures. For now though, these people may be seen as explorers, creatives, dissidents, non-conformists, scientists, pioneers and revolutionaries. We encourage ourselves and others to be bold in creative problem solving and decision making. Our open culture keeps everyone informed and allows people to move around and solve the problems they care about most. We work in small teams and move fast to develop new products, constantly iterating and improving.
The phrase "the edge is still out there" is posted on our walls, reminding us that there is no honest way to explain "the edge" because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. We'll continue to break all the rules including our own.
