User Contributions

The Service allows you to upload, post, or otherwise transmit content, information, and other materials ("User Contributions"). You retain all rights in and to your User Contributions and are solely responsible for them.

By making any User Contributions through the Service, you grant the Proprietor a limited license to use, copy, display, and distribute your User Contributions solely in connection with providing the Service. This license is non-exclusive, royalty-free, sub-licensable, and worldwide.

You represent and warrant that: (i) you either are the sole and exclusive owner of all User Contributions or you have all rights, licenses, consents, releases, and permissions necessary to grant the rights granted in these Terms of Use; (ii) the User Contributions do not infringe, misappropriate, or violate a third party’s patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, moral rights, or other proprietary or intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation; and (iii) the User Contributions do not contain any viruses, trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, or other computer programming routines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept, or expropriate any system, data, or personal information.

The Proprietor does not claim any ownership rights in your User Contributions and nothing in these Terms of Use will be deemed to restrict any rights that you may have to use and exploit your User Contributions.
