No licenses or rights are granted to you by implication or otherwise under any intellectual property rights owned or controlled by ACTIVEON or its licensors, except for the licenses and rights expressly granted in these TOU. This grant of permission is not a transfer of title. This license shall automatically terminate if you violate any of these restrictions and may be terminated by us at any time.

User Submitted Content
We may, in our sole discretion, permit you to submit, post, upload, publish, e-mail, send or transmit Content on or through the Site. Upon submission, you are giving the Content to us free of charge, and the Content will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary and may be used by us for any purpose, without your consent or any compensation to you or anyone else. We may occasionally ask you to resubmit Content to us in a different form. By making available any Content through the Site, you hereby grant to ACTIVEON a worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, to use, copy, adapt, modify, distribute, reference, store, cache, license, sell, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, stream, broadcast and otherwise exploit such Content, in any form, medium or technology now known or later developed, in whole or in part, for any purposes, including for both commercial and non-commercial purposes. You also hereby grant each user of the Site a non-exclusive license to access your Content through the Site, and to use, reproduce, distribute, display and perform such Content as permitted through the functionality of the Site and under these TOU.
You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for all Content that you make available through the Site. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that: (i) you either are the sole and exclusive owner of all Content that you make available through the Site or you have all rights, licenses, permissions, consents and releases that are necessary to grant to ACTIVEON the rights in such Content, as contemplated under these TOU; and (ii) neither the Content nor your posting, uploading, publication, submission or transmittal of the Content or ACTIVEON’s use of the Content (or any portion thereof) on, through or by means of the Site or otherwise will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party’s patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, moral rights or other proprietary or intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation.
We may from time to time monitor, review and, in our sole discretion, modify or delete any postings you make on the Site or through the Site; however, we are not obligated to do so. Whether or not we modify or remove such Content, you remain solely responsible for any Content you submit to us.
Ideas, Submissions and Feedback
For any proposals or ideas that you submit to us through the Site, you represent and warrant that you have the right to disclose such ideas or proposal to ACTIVEON and that such disclosure does not violate the rights of any other person or party.
By submitting your idea or proposal you acknowledge and recognize that ACTIVEON has a number of well-established product lines and is continually busy working on new products, services and technologies, and as such, ACTIVEON may currently or in the future be internally developing proposals, ideas or information or receiving proposals, ideas or information from others that are likely to be similar to the proposals or ideas provided by you. Accordingly, nothing in this TOU shall be construed as a representation or inference that ACTIVEON will not independently develop or authorize the development of products, services or ideas, for itself or for others that may compete with or be similar to the proposals or ideas you submit. Moreover, ACTIVEON assumes no fiduciary or confidential obligation of any kind with respect to any proposals, ideas or suggestions made by you through the Site, even if the documents are marked as confidential. You also understand and agree that ACTIVEON’s willingness to review any proposals or ideas is not an admission by ACTIVEON of novelty, priority, or originality and does not impair ACTIVEON’s right to contest existing or future patents or copyrights claiming the ideas.
If you choose to provide feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to the Site or otherwise through the Site (“Feedback”), you acknowledge and agree that all Feedback will be the sole and exclusive property of ACTIVEON and you hereby irrevocably assign to ACTIVEON all of your right, title, and interest in and to all Feedback, including any intellectual property rights therein.
ACTIVEON respects copyright law and expects its users to do the same. ACTIVEON has adopted and implemented an infringement notification procedure that provides for the removal of Content, in appropriate circumstances. It is our policy to respond to any infringement notices and take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ( “DMCA ”) and other applicable intellectual property laws. To file a copyright infringement notification with us, you must send a written communication that includes the following:
a. Identification of the copyrighted work (or works) claimed to have been infringed;
b. Identification of the material located on our site that you claim to be infringing (Please provide reasonably sufficient information to permit us to locate the material. For example, providing the URL is an easy way for us to locate the material quickly.);
c. Explain how these materials infringe your rights (Please note that this question is optional and is not required; however, providing an answer may expedite our ability to process your request.);
d. Information reasonably sufficient for us to contact you, such as your name, address, phone number and e-mail address;
e. A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law;
f. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; and
g. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Please send this written request to our designated agent at [email@example.com, 10920 Via Frontera, Suite 540, San Diego, CA 92127].
Please note that the information you provide in connection with the notification may be forwarded to the person who provided the allegedly infringing material. Title 17 USC §512(f) provides civil damage penalties, including costs and attorney fees, against any person who knowingly and materially misrepresents certain information in a notification of infringement under 17 USC §512(c)(3).
