6. Content; Copyright and Limitations on Use
You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit for any commercial purposes any portion of the Site, use of the Site or access to the Site. The Site is provided for your personal, noncommercial use only.
All information, materials, functions and other content including without limitation, text, software, photos, and graphics (and including Submissions, as defined herein) ("Content") contained on the Site are copyrighted by Fluidity and/or its licensors under United States and international copyright laws, are subject to other intellectual property and proprietary rights and laws, and are owned by Fluidity or its licensors. Fluidity may change the Site or delete Content or features at any time, in any way, for any or no reason.
Except as Fluidity specifically agrees in writing, no Content from the Site may be copied, modified, sold, offered for sale, used, posted, reproduced, transmitted, distributed or otherwise exploited in any way other than as part of the Site, except that where a feature of the Site is configured to enable the download of particular Content, you may download one copy of such Content to a single computer for your personal, noncommercial use only, provided that you (a) keep intact all copyright and other proprietary notices, (b) make no modifications to the Content, and (c) do not use the Content in a manner that suggests an association with any of Fluidity’s products, services or brands. Any commercial use, "remailing" or high-volume or automated use of the Site is prohibited. You must abide by all copyright notices, information, or restrictions contained in or attached to any Content.
In the event that Fluidity offers downloads of licensed software on the Site and you purchase a license and download such software, the software, including any files, videos, images incorporated in or generated by the software, and data accompanying the software (collectively, the "Software") are licensed to you by Fluidity or third-party licensors under the specific terms and restrictions stated in the applicable License Agreement accepted by you at the time of download. Fluidity does not transfer title to the Software to you. You may not distribute or otherwise exploit the Software or decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble or otherwise reduce the Software to a human-readable form.
There are two types of Submissions: Solicited Submissions and Unsolicited Submissions. "Solicited Submissions" means those Submissions (a) that Fluidity expressly requests or enables you to provide to us via any feature or activity on the Site for Fluidity’s review or display and possible specifically-defined consideration or compensation (such as being given access to special Site features) or prizes or other value in sweepstakes, contests and promotions; and (b) that you Distribute on or through the Site for which you do not seek consideration (such as in Public Forums, as defined below). "Unsolicited Submissions" are any and all Submissions that do not fall within subparagraphs (a) or (b) of this paragraph.
DO NOT DISTRIBUTE ANY UNSOLICITED SUBMISSIONS; NO IMPLIED CONTRACT WILL BE CREATED.
Fluidity’s company policy does not allow us to accept or consider Unsolicited Submissions. Fluidity seeks to avoid any confusion when projects developed by Fluidity or under Fluidity’s direction might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. Fluidity therefore requests that you not Distribute any Unsolicited Submission in any manner to Fluidity directly or indirectly or on or through the Site. Regardless, you agree that any Submissions you make are not being made in confidence or trust and that no confidential or fiduciary relationship is intended or created between you and Fluidity in any way, and that you have no expectation of any review, compensation or consideration of any type (other than any stated consideration that is expressly agreed to by Fluidity after specific negotiation).
You hereby grant Fluidity and it licensees, distributors, agents, representatives and other authorized users, a perpetual, non-exclusive, irrevocable, fully-paid, royalty-free, sub-licensable and transferable (in whole or part) worldwide license under all copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, privacy and publicity rights and other intellectual property rights you own or control to use, reproduce, transmit, display, exhibit, distribute, index, comment on, modify (including removing lyrics and music from any Submission or substituting the lyrics and music in any Submission with music and lyrics selected by us), create derivative works based upon, perform and otherwise exploit such Submissions, in whole or in part, in all media formats and channels now known or hereafter devised (including on the Site, on third party web sites, broadcast and cable networks and stations, broadband and wireless platforms, products and services, on physical media, and in theatrical release) for any and all purposes including entertainment, news, advertising, promotional, marketing, publicity, trade or commercial purposes, all without further notice to you, with or without attribution, and without the requirement of any permission from or payment to you or to any other person or entity (the "Submissions License").
9. Representations Concerning Submissions
To the extent Fluidity solicits Submissions through features or activities on or through the Site (including sweepstakes, contests, promotions and Public Forums (defined below)) that require the use of Fluidity’s copyrighted works (in whole or in part), Fluidity hereby grants you a non-exclusive license to create a derivative work using such copyrighted works (in whole or in part) as required (but only as required, and only for the purpose of creating your Submissions); provided however, that such license shall be conditioned upon your assignment of all rights in the work you create to Fluidity. If such rights are not assigned to Fluidity, your license to create derivative works using Fluidity’s copyrighted works (in whole or in part) shall be null and void. You agree to the foregoing grant of rights, consents, agreements and assignments whether or not your Submissions are used by Fluidity.
To the extent any "moral rights," "ancillary rights," or similar rights in or to the Submissions exist and are not exclusively owned by Fluidity, you agree not to enforce any such rights as to Fluidity or its licensees, distributors, agents, representatives and other authorized users, and you shall procure the same agreement not to enforce from any others who may possess such rights.
Without limiting the scope of the Submissions License or any future grant of rights, consents, agreements, assignments, and waivers you may make with respect to Submissions, you hereby ratify any prior grant of rights, consents, agreements, assignments and waivers made by you with respect to Submissions submitted by you to Fluidity.
10. Public Forum
You acknowledge that Public Forums and features offered therein are for public and not private communications, and you have no expectation of privacy with regard to any Submission to a Public Forum. Fluidity cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose through any of these media; you make such disclosures at your own risk.
You are and shall remain solely responsible for the Submissions you Distribute on or through the Site under your account or otherwise by you in any Public Forum and for the consequences of submitting and posting same. Fluidity has no duty to monitor any Public Forum.
Also, you should be skeptical about information provided by others, and you acknowledge that the use of any Submission posted in any Public Forum is at your own risk. For example, Fluidity is not responsible for, and Fluidity does not endorse, the opinions, advice or recommendations posted or sent by users in any Public Forum and Fluidity specifically disclaims any and all liability in connection therewith.
Fluidity owes you no obligation, and therefore may refuse, to post, deliver, remove, modify or otherwise use or take any action with respect to Submissions you Distribute.
