8. Your Content. "Your Content" means reports, data, text, audio, video, images, graphics, messages, files, attachments or other materials that you submit to, or create within, the Services in connection with your account. Solely you are responsible for properly using the Services and taking your own steps to maintain appropriate security, protection and backup of Your Content. Because it is not possible to guarantee data security, you acknowledge that it may be possible for an unauthorized party to access Your Content, and you agree that, in such event, any loss that you may suffer is subject to the Limitation of Liability section of this Agreement.
Solely you are responsible for Your Content. You retain ownership rights that you may have in Your Content. We display, store and otherwise process Your Content solely at your direction. To the extent that we need a license to provide such display, storage and other processing services to you, you hereby grant to us, the Affiliated Entities and each of our and their respective service providers and designees a worldwide, non-exclusive, transferable, fully sublicenseable (through multiple tiers), royalty-free, fully paid-up, perpetual, irrevocable license, without additional consideration to you or any third party, to use, reproduce, distribute, perform and display (publicly or otherwise), create derivative works of, adapt, modify, and otherwise use and exploit Your Content, in any format or media now known or hereafter developed, for the sole purpose of providing the Services and related customer service to you and other users designated by you. You represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary for you to grant the license granted in this section and that Your Content and your provision of it to and through the Site comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations and do not violate the rights of any person. You agree to cooperate with us, at our request, in responding to any claims relating to Your Content. We may disclose your account information and Your Content to any person as we reasonably believe necessary or appropriate: (i) if we are required to do so to comply with legal process or governmental request, (ii) to enforce this Agreement, (iii) to detect or prevent security, fraud or technical issues, (iv) to protect the rights, property and/or safety of us, our users, you or any other person, or (v) as permitted by law.

9. Submissions. The Site may make available certain functionality (such as Forums) through which you are able to post or send information and materials in connection with community-focused areas of the Site (each, a "Submission"). "Submissions" do not include Your Content. For purposes of clarity, you retain ownership rights that you may have in any Submission that you post, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We do not claim ownership over any of your Submissions; however, we need certain rights to your Submissions to be able to make them available through the Site. Accordingly, you hereby grant to the Company, the Affiliated Entities and each of their respective service providers and designees a worldwide, non-exclusive, transferable, fully sublicenseable (through multiple tiers), royalty-free, fully paid-up, perpetual, irrevocable license, without additional consideration to you or any third party, to use, reproduce, distribute, perform and display (publicly or otherwise), create derivative works of, adapt, modify, and otherwise use and exploit such Submission, in any format or media now known or hereafter developed, and for any purpose (including promotional purposes).
For each Submission, you represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary for you to grant the license granted in this section and that such Submission, and your provision of it to and through the Site, comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations and do not violate the rights of any person. You further irrevocably waive any "moral rights" or other rights with respect to attribution of authorship or integrity of materials regarding each Submission that you may have under any applicable law under any legal theory. We request this license and waiver to help ensure that we have all the rights we may need to provide the Services available through the Site.
10. Monitoring. We may (but have no obligation to) monitor, evaluate, refuse to post, remove or alter Submissions before or after they appear on the Site. We may disclose any Submissions and the circumstances surrounding their transmission to anyone for any reason.
11. Your Suggestions. You grant to Company all right, title and interest to any suggestion, recommendation or other feedback that you provide to us. In the event this grant is not sufficient, you grant to Company a royalty-free, fully paid-up, worldwide, transferable, sub-licensable, irrevocable, perpetual license to use and incorporate into its products and/or services (including the Site) any of your suggestions, recommendations or other feedback.
12. Orders. All product and service features, including availability and price, are subject to change at any time without notice. We reserve the right, with or without prior notice, to limit the availability of or to discontinue any product or service; to impose conditions on any promotion; to bar any user from making any purchase; and/or to refuse to provide any user with any product or service.
You authorize Company to charge you for all products or services purchased by you through the Site, to the payment method you provide. "Charge" shall indicate either a charge or a debit, as applicable, against your payment method. If you request a purchase on a recurring basis, you agree that we may automatically charge the payment method you have provided at the regular intervals you have designated, unless and until you cancel by selecting the cancellation option on your company profile page. You represent that you have the legal right to use any payment method that you submit to us. There will be no refunds or credits for prior months of service, partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.
All orders placed through the Site are subject to our acceptance. Your receipt of an order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any or no reason and without liability to you or anyone else. If your method of payment has already been charged for an order that we later cancel, we will issue you a refund. Prices are in U.S. dollars and are subject to change. We may require verification of information prior to the acceptance and/or fulfillment of any order.
