Our site may include interactive services, including, without limitation: chat rooms, bulletin boards, discussion forums, blogs, wiki, customer reviews and comments, articles with public comments (“Interactive Services ”). We will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, whether it is moderated, and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
We refer to anything you post as “your Contribution”.
If you are under 18, you must not use any of our Interactive Services unless you have permission from your parent or legal guardian. Parents and legal guardians who permit children to use an Interactive Service should bear in mind that moderation does not make an Interactive Service safe, and should take appropriate steps to ensure that their children stay safe online. This should include regular communication with their children about online safety risks and precautions.
You must ensure that your Contribution complies with our Content Standards. If it does not, you agree to indemnify us against all claims, proceedings, damages, liabilities costs (including legal costs) and expenses which we suffer or incur as a consequence.
If we reasonably believe that your Contribution does not comply with our Content Standards, we may take such action as we believe is appropriate, including (without limitation) taking all or any of the following actions:
- Immediate, temporary or permanent withdrawal of your right to use our site.
- Immediate, temporary or permanent removal of any posting or material uploaded by you to our site.
- Issue of a warning to you.
- Legal proceedings against you for reimbursement of all costs on an indemnity basis (including, but not limited to, reasonable administrative and legal costs) resulting from the breach.
- Further legal action against you.
- Disclosure of such information to law enforcement authorities as we reasonably feel is necessary.
We will not be liable for any loss or damage resulting from any steps we take in response to what we reasonably believe is a non-compliance with our Content Standards.
You waive any claim that your Contribution is confidential or proprietary.
You grant us a non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free and fully sub-licensable right to freely use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, disclose and display your Contribution throughout the world in any media.
You grant us and our sub-licensees the right, if we or they choose, to use the name that you submit in connection with your Contribution.
You grant us the right to disclose your identity to any third party who is claiming that your Contribution infringes their intellectual property rights or their right to privacy, or is unlawful and affects them more than the general public.
You waive your right to be identified as the author of your Contribution and your right to object to derogatory treatment of your Contribution.
The rights, interests and licences you grant us in these Terms and Conditions are perpetual and irrevocable.
You agree to execute any deed or other document which we reasonably require of you in order to perfect any of the rights, interests and licences you grant us in these Terms and Conditions.
