Subject to this User Agreement, we grant each user of the Services a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-sublicensable and non-transferable license to view, print, download, and display Content, to the extent we hold such rights, solely for purposes of using the Services. Use, reproduction, modification, distribution or storage of any Content for other than purposes of using the Services is expressly prohibited without prior written permission from us.

For the sake of clarity, the foregoing license grant includes our right to distribute, display, perform and otherwise use the User Content in connection with material provided by our sponsors, and you shall not be entitled to any remuneration for such use. To the extent any User Content you submit includes your name, likeness, voice, or photograph, you acknowledge and agree that this license shall apply to the same. You also hereby do and shall grant each user of the Site and/or the Services a non-exclusive, perpetual license to access your User Content through the Site and/or the Services, including after your termination of your Account or the Services. For clarity, the foregoing license grants to us and our users do not affect your other ownership or license rights in your User Content, including the right to grant additional licenses to your User Content, unless otherwise agreed in writing. You represent and warrant that you have all rights to grant such licenses to us without infringement or violation of any third party rights, including without limitation, any privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, trademarks, contract rights, or any other intellectual property or proprietary rights.
Except where prohibited by applicable law, by submitting User Content through the Services, you are waiving and agreeing not to assert any copyrights or “moral” rights or claim resulting from our alteration of the User Content or any photograph(s), footage, illustrations, statements or other work contained in the User Content. You are also agreeing to appoint MRI as your irrevocable attorney-in-fact with respect to the User Content, with the right to execute and deliver any documents, in your name and on your behalf, to ensure that the Site and Services can use the User Content that you are licensing in any way the Site and Services see fit to own and protect the rights in any derivative works created from your User Content, and to have the User Content removed from any other website or forum.
Unless prohibited by applicable law, upon request from the Site, you shall execute and deliver such additional instrument of license, as it may be solely deemed by MRI, reasonably necessary to establish the Site’s and its mobile applications’ ability to use the User Content as it sees fit and that “Moral Rights of Authors” are waived under this User Agreement. Should MRI fail to request the said license instrument as stated, that shall not be deemed a waiver of MRI’s rights and Site may at a later time request the instrument.
Unless otherwise agreed upon in writing by you and MRI, you may not use any third-party platforms, other than your own website or your own social media pages, to link to or distribute the Content.

Third-Party Affiliates. We may participate in affiliate marketing and may allow affiliate links to be encoded on some of our pages. This means that we may earn a commission if/when you click on or make purchases via affiliate links.

If You choose to submit comments, ideas, or feedback, You agree that we are free to use them without any restriction or compensation to You.
