User Content Terms & Conditions

You may be able to create or submit designs, artwork, photos, product reviews, written posts, and other content (“User Content”) on or through the Sites.  You agree that: (i) you shall not display or furnish any User Content that contains personal information about or the likeness of any individual, violates the privacy/publicity of any other individual or entity, or anything that you are under a contractual obligation to keep private or confidential; (ii) you shall not impersonate any person or organization (including us), or misrepresent an affiliation with another person or organization; and (iii) you shall not post or upload any User Content that constitutes a Prohibited Use.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, for U.K. and Republic of Ireland residents, these Terms in no way limit your rights under applicable consumer protection legislation.

 

By displaying, publishing, or otherwise posting any User Content on or through the Sites, or by affirmatively agreeing to our online request to use your User Content (electronically or otherwise), you hereby grant us a perpetual, non-exclusive, sub-licensable (through multiple tiers), worldwide, fully-paid, royalty free license to use such User Content (including without limitation, to modify, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce, create derivative works of, and distribute such User Content for any purpose, whether it contains a personal likeness or otherwise) in any and all media now known or hereinafter developed, without the requirement to make payment to any party or seek any third party permission or make any authorship attribution. You continue to retain all ownership rights in your User Content, and you continue to have the right to use your User Content in any way you choose, subject to these Terms and the license described herein, though for purposes of this Section, you waive all “moral rights” in the same.

 

You represent and warrant that (i) you own the User Content submitted, displayed, published, provided, or posted by you on the Offerings, or otherwise have the right to grant the license set forth herein, and (ii) your displaying, publishing, providing, or posting of any User Content you submit, and our use thereof in accordance with these Terms, does not and will not violate applicable law or any privacy, publicity, copyright, trademark, patent, contract or any other rights of any person or entity.

We have the right to:

  • remove or refuse to post any User Content for any or no reason in our sole discretion; and
  • take any action with respect to any User Content that we deem necessary or appropriate in our sole discretion, including if we believe that such User Content violates these Terms, infringes any intellectual property right or other right of any person or entity, threatens the personal safety of users of the Sites or the public or could create liability for us;
  • where permitted by applicable law and/or our Privacy Policy, disclose your identity or other information about you to any third party who claims that material posted by you violates their rights, including their intellectual property rights or their right to privacy;
  • take appropriate legal action, including without limitation, referral to law enforcement, for any illegal or unauthorized use of the Sites; and
  • terminate or suspend your access to all or part of the Sites for any or no reason, including without limitation, any violation of these Terms of Use.

Without limiting the foregoing, we have the right to fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any materials on or through the Offerings.

YOU WAIVE AND HOLD HARMLESS US AND OUR AFFILIATES, LICENSEES AND SERVICE PROVIDERS FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY ANY OF THE FOREGOING PARTIES DURING OR AS A RESULT OF ITS INVESTIGATIONS AND FROM ANY ACTIONS TAKEN AS A CONSEQUENCE OF INVESTIGATIONS BY SUCH PARTIES OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.
