Privacy and Consent to Use Data
The information communicated on the Website constitutes an electronic communication. When you communicate with us through the Website or via other forms of electronic media, such as e-mail, you are communicating with us electronically. You agree that we may communicate electronically, subject to applicable privacy laws, and that such communications, as well as notices, disclosures, agreements, and other communications that we provide to you electronically, are equivalent to communications in writing and shall have the same force and effect as if they were in writing and signed by the party sending the communication.
We have created, or may create in the future, certain areas, such as message boards and chat rooms, within the Website where members can upload and share their thoughts, comments, product reviews, pictures, videos and the like with other members (collectively, “Forums”). These Forums may be available to registered members of the Website only. To help ensure that the text, graphics, software, music, sound, photographs, videos, messages, posts, data, information, or other materials posted by users (collectively, the "User Content") is beneficial for the greater community, we have established some basic rules for everyone to follow.
In addition, if a Forum is provided within the Website, it may allow users to post questions to be answered by experts engaged by us. Where applicable, these experts are paid by us for their time in responding to members’ questions, but the opinions they express are their own and we are providing access to those experts and their guidance in the Forum solely as an informational and educational service to members of the Website.
We may review User Content either before or after such User Content is posted. Pre-moderation means that the User Content will not be posted to the Forum and cannot be accessed or viewed by other Website members until we have reviewed it and determined that the User Content is suitable for posting to the Forum. This process also means that User Content submitted for posting will not be posted in real time and may never be posted if we determine that it is unsuitable for the Website. Post-moderation means that User Content will be reviewed by us once it is already posted on the Website. Post-moderated User Content that Site Owner determines does not comply with these Terms or is otherwise unsuitable for the Website will be removed from the Website, without notice to the User. User Content must be appropriate for the Forum. Without limiting the reasons for which User Content may be rejected by us, we may reject, edit or remove any User Content that does not comply with any Community Guidelines that we provide, which you must read prior to posting any User Content on the Website.
By submitting User Content for posting at a Forum, you also (1) confirm that you are entitled to post or transmit User Content; (2) agree that you are solely responsible for all User Content that you submit for posting and it is your original work; and (3) grant to Site Owner and its affiliated entities an irrevocable, worldwide, nonexclusive, perpetual, fully sub-licensable, transferable, royalty-free right and license to use, your User Content in any way including on the Website and on any other website owned or operated by Site Owner or its affiliates (as well as on any social media sites associated with the Site Owner or its affiliates).
We are free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained in or derived from any User Content for any purpose whatsoever, including developing, manufacturing, and marketing products. Therefore please do not submit or send to us any ideas, suggestion or materials that you wish to keep confidential or for which you expect to receive compensation. You will not have any claim against us with respect to any use or non-use of User Content. When you submit User Content, you understand that we will have the right, but not the obligation, to use, display and publish your name, photograph, likeness, voice, performance, biographical information and/or statements, throughout the world in perpetuity including on the Website and on any affiliate or successor website or social media channels owned or operated by us or our affiliates. If we make use of any of these rights, you understand and agree that you shall not receive any other consideration, payment, notification or credit, nor will you have any approval over how Site Owner uses them. By submitting User Content you consent to the use of that User Content by us which, but for this consent, may infringe your moral rights.
You acknowledge that the Forums contain the opinions and views of other users. You acknowledge further that we are not responsible for the accuracy of any User Content on the Website. You understand and agree that all User Content is the sole responsibility of the person who posted the Content. You understand and agree that you will evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any User Content, including any reliance by You on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such User Content.
We reserve the right at any time to discontinue, temporarily or permanently, your ability to upload User Content and/or your ability to access User Content with or without notice, at our sole discretion. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any suspension or discontinuance of acceptance of User Content.
Remember that all User Content you submit to the Website through a mobile device will be stored on that mobile device. The security and safety of your mobile device, and the information and materials contained on it, as well as any password you use on your device and to access the Website are your sole responsibility.
Storage of User Content
We may impose a maximum amount of storage for User Content on the Website. We are not responsible for any loss or harm you may suffer as a result of any deletion or failure to store any messages, communications or other User Content associated with maintaining the maximum amount of storage.
