As used in these Terms and Conditions, "User Content" is defined as any content that a user uploads, submits, makes available, posts or otherwise provides to the Site. Users retain their ownership and/or other applicable rights in User Content. Additionally, users retain ownership of all intellectual property posted by the user to the Site. The Site Manager and/or applicable third parties retain ownership and/or other applicable rights in all content excluding User Content, and the Site Manager does not claim ownership in any User Content.
However, by posting User Content to the Site, you grant us a perpetual, irrevocable, nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable right and license to use, host, store, cache, reproduce, publish, display (publicly or otherwise), perform (publicly or otherwise), distribute, transmit, modify, adapt (including in order to conform to the requirements of any networks, devices, services or media through which the Site is available), translate and create derivative works of such User Content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of allowing us to operate the Site in accordance with its functionality, improve the Site and promote the Site, such as by using User Content in promotional or advertising materials for the Site. The reference in this license to creating derivative works is not intended to give us a right to make substantive editorial changes or derivations.
By providing User Content to the Site, you further represent and warrant that you own all rights to such content and that such content does not infringe upon or otherwise violate the rights of any third party. You acknowledge that all User Content on the Site is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such content originated. You, and not the Site Manager, are entirely responsible for all User Content that you post, submit, upload or otherwise make available via the Site. We do not control the User Content posted to the Site and do not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such User Content. Under no circumstances is the Site Manager liable in any way for any User Content, including any errors or omissions in any User Content or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any User Content posted, submitted, uploaded or otherwise made available via the Site. You agree that you must evaluate and bear all risks associated with the use of any User Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of such User Content.
You acknowledge that the Site Manager and its designees shall have the right, but not the obligation (except as otherwise required by law), in its sole discretion, to pre-screen, refuse or remove any User Content that is available on the Site. Without limiting the foregoing, the Site Manager and its designees shall have the right to remove any User Content that violates these Terms and Conditions, infringes the rights of any third parties or is otherwise objectionable.
You acknowledge and agree that we may access, preserve and disclose User Content if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such access, preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with legal process; (ii) enforce these Terms and Conditions; (iii) respond to any claims that any User Content violates the rights of third parties; (iv) respond to your requests for customer service or (v) protect the rights, property or personal safety of the Site Manager, the Site's users or the public.
Upon your deletion of particular User Content from the Site, we shall make reasonable efforts to make such User Content inaccessible and cease use of it. However, you acknowledge and agree that removed User Content may remain in caches or backups for a reasonable period of time. You also acknowledge and agree that copies of or references to the User Content may not be entirely removed.
