You agree to not engage in the use, copying, or distribution of any of the Intellectual Property other than expressly permitted herein. If you download or print a copy of the Intellectual Property for personal use, you must retain all copyright and other proprietary notices contained therein. You agree not to circumvent, disable or otherwise interfere with security related features of the Website or features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any Intellectual Property or enforce limitations on use of the Website or the Intellectual Property therein.

Some of the Services may allow you to submit or transmit audio, video, text, or other materials (collectively, “User Submissions”) to or through the Services. When you provide User Submissions, you grant to Read The Line, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, and partners a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, fully sublicenseable license to use, distribute, edit, display, archive, publish, sublicense, perform, reproduce, make available, transmit, broadcast, sell, translate, and create derivative works of those User Submissions, and your name, voice, likeness and other identifying information where part of a User Submission, in any form, media, software, or technology of any kind now known or developed in the future, including, without limitation, for developing, manufacturing, and marketing products. You hereby waive any moral rights you may have in your User Submissions.

In addition, you agree that any User Submissions you submit shall not contain any material that is, in Read The Line’ sole and absolute discretion, inappropriate, obscene, vulgar, unlawful, or otherwise objectionable (hereinafter, “Prohibited Content”). Posting of any Prohibited Content, in addition to any and all other rights and remedies available to Read The Line, may result in account suspension or termination.

Read The Line respects your ownership of User Submissions. If you owned a User Submission before providing it to Read The Line, you will continue owning it after providing it to Read The Line, subject to any rights granted in the Terms of Use and any access granted to others. If you delete a User Submission from the Services, the Company’s general license to that User Submission will end after a reasonable period of time required for the deletion to take full effect. However, the User Submission may still exist in our backup copies, which are not publicly available. If your User Submission is shared with third parties, those third parties may have retained copies of your User Submissions. In addition, if Read The Line made use of your User Submission before you deleted it, Read The Line will continue to have the right to make, duplicate, redistribute, and sublicense those pre-existing uses, even after you delete the User Submission. Terminating your Account on a Service will not automatically delete your User Submissions.

We may refuse or remove a User Submission without notice to you. However, Read The Line has no obligation to monitor User Submissions, and you agree that neither the Company nor its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, or agents will be liable for User Submissions or any loss or damage resulting from User Submissions.

Except as provided in the Privacy Policy, Read The Line does not guarantee that User Submissions will be private, even if the User Submission is in a password-protected area. Accordingly, you should not provide User Submissions that you want protected from others.

You represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to grant to Read The Line the license above and that none of your User Submissions are defamatory, violate any rights of third parties (including intellectual property rights or rights of publicity or privacy), or violate applicable law.

In the event that either party initiates a proceeding involving a Claim under this Section other than in the Forum, the other party shall recover all attorneys’ fees and expenses reasonably incurred in enforcing this Agreement and the Forum to which the parties have herein agreed.
