User Submission Agreement
IMPORTANT NOTE: You must meet the Age Requirements in Section 2 of this Agreement and each and every time you submit or attempt to submit User Material, among other things, you will be asked to confirm your compliance.
1. Submitting User Material.
2. Age Requirements.
3. User Material Standards; Unauthorized Content.
You are solely responsible and liable for your communications and submissions (and the consequences) made under your name, user name, email address, password and your registration and profile information, if any. User Material does not reflect the views of Shockwave or Atom Entertainment, and neither Atom Entertainment, nor any of the Parent Companies or the Affiliates, represents or guarantees the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any User Material, or endorses or supports any opinions expressed in any User Material. In no event shall Atom Entertainment, the Parent Companies or the Affiliates have or be construed to have any responsibility or liability for or in connection with any User Material. If we determine, in our sole discretion, you have not met the Age Requirements (see Section 2 above) or if, in our judgment, you or any User Material you submit violates this Agreement, we reserve the right, at any time, without notice and without limiting any and all other rights we may have under this Agreement, at law or in equity, to (a) refuse to allow you to submit further User Material, (b) remove and delete your User Material, (c) revoke your registration and right to use the User Material Submission Features and (d) use any technological, legal, operational or other means available to enforce the terms of this Agreement, including, without limitation, blocking specific IP addresses or deactivating your registration, access using your e-mail address, your user name and password.
We make no claim the User Material Submission Features or any User Material are appropriate for any particular purpose or audience, or that any video, software or our User Material Submission Features may be accessed, used or downloaded outside of the United States, which may not be legal for certain persons or in certain countries and you do so at your own risk. You are responsible for compliance with the laws of your jurisdiction. The United States controls the export of products and information and you agree to comply with such restrictions and not to export or re-export any User Material including videos, information, software, materials, products or services to countries or persons prohibited under the export control laws and regulations.
- infringing on a third party's copyright or other intellectual property rights;
- causing harm, harassing anyone or which may prevent, prohibit, inhibit, restrict or otherwise impair others from using or enjoying the Site;
- unauthorized access to the User Material Submission Features or information of other users;
- the modification, impairment, disruption, alteration or interference with the use, features, functions, operation or maintenance of the User Material Submission Features; or
- any requirements, rules, terms or conditions that may be applicable to the User Material Submission Features.
Neither Atom Entertainment nor the Parent Companies or the Affiliates control any User Material submitted, although we may use both automated and manual means of reviewing User Material in order to prevent Unauthorized Content from appearing and being displayed on our Site. Atom Entertainment reserves the right to review any submitted User Material and to delete, remove, move, edit or reject, without notice to you, any User Material that we deem, in our sole discretion, abusive, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, in violation of copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights, to be in violation of this Agreement or to be unacceptable to Atom Entertainment or the Parent Companies or Affiliates, for any reason or for no reason whatsoever; provided, however, that Atom Entertainment shall have no obligation or liability to you for failure to do so or for doing so in any particular manner. If Atom Entertainment receives notice of any claim of infringement that satisfies specific legal requirements, such as notice and takedown requirements under U.S. copyright law (see Section 4 below), we may remove User Material associated with such claim. Atom Entertainment reserves the right to provide information to law enforcement officials, governmental agencies and pursuant to judicial or regulatory compulsion, to protect their respective interests, the Site or to comply with legal, regulatory, audit and compliance obligations.
