YOUR REGISTRATION AND YOUR USER INFORMATION
You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Your User Information. You are also solely responsible for any and all activities that occur under Your Registration or Your User Information. You must notify us immediately of any suspected or actual unauthorized use of Your Registration or Your User Information, and of any and all other security breaches.
We reserve the right to terminate Your Registration or to refuse services to you, without prior notice to you, at any time and for any or no reason. Without limiting the above, if you are a repeat copyright infringer, we will, in appropriate circumstances, permanently terminate Your Registration and remove your User Content from the Site. You have the right to cancel Your Registration at any time. You may cancel Your Registration by following the instructions on the Site.
If you voluntarily terminate Your Registration or allow Your Registration to lapse, you may reactivate Your Registration at any time through the account interface on the Site. Accounts terminated by us for any type of abuse, including without limitation a violation of these Terms, may not be reactivated.
FEES THAT YOU MAY PAY
Some aspects of the Site may require you to pay a fee or other charge, the details of which are available in various areas of the Site that feature the ability to purchase products, features or services. You agree to pay all fees, charges and applicable taxes incurred by you or anyone using Your Registration. We may revise the pricing for products, services or features offered through the Site at any time. Unless otherwise noted, all currency references are in U.S. dollars. All fees and charges are payable in accordance with payment terms in effect at the time the fee or the charge becomes payable. If there is a dispute regarding payment of fees to, or products or services provided by, us, Your Registration may be closed without warning or notice at our sole discretion.
EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE SET FORTH IN ANY RETURN POLICY OR CANCELLATION POLICY APPLICABLE TO OUR FEE-BASED PRODUCTS, SERVICES OR FEATURES, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANY APPLICABLE FEES AND OTHER CHARGES FOR FEE-BASED PRODUCTS, SERVICES OR FEATURES ARE NOT REFUNDABLE IN WHOLE OR IN PART. YOU ARE FULLY LIABLE FOR ALL CHARGES TO YOUR REGISTRATION, INCLUDING ANY UNAUTHORIZED CHARGES.
We may, from time to time, modify, amend, or supplement our fees and fee-billing methods, and such changes shall be effective immediately upon posting in these Terms or elsewhere on the Site.
In many instances, we have agreed to sell certain products offered for sale on the Site subject to what is referred to as a "minimum advertised price," or "MAP" policy. MAP is the lowest price distributors and other resellers are allowed to publicly display a product for sale. This practice is used by some manufactures to protect the integrity of their product(s) and brand. Generally, authorized retailers of a MAP protected product agree to adhere to these guidelines, failing which they risk losing the right to sell the product subject to that MAP policy. In addition, buyers may not be able to take advantage of post-sale services (i.e., warranty repair) when purchasing from a retailer that does not comply with a manufacturer’s MAP policy.
MAP policies are intended to protect consumers and sellers from disreputable dealers, giving all authorized retailers specific guidelines on how to advertise the price of the MAP product(s). This helps to ensure that buyers will be able to access the high level of service the manufacture wants purchasers of their product(s) to receive.
If you have any questions regarding whether a particular product purchased on the Site is subject to a MAP policy, please contact us.
SUBMISSION OF YOUR IDEAS AND SUGGESTIONS
While you are encouraged to share ideas and suggestions through your use of the Site, we wish to avoid any potential misunderstandings or disputes that may arise from the limited use that we or other users of the Site may make of any ideas or suggestions that you choose to share or if our content or business activities seem similar to any such ideas or suggestions. When you share ideas or suggestions through your use of the Site (collectively "Submissions"), you hereby grant us and our designees a worldwide, non-exclusive, fully paid-up, unrestricted, fully sublicenseable, fully transferrable, assignable, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable right to copy, use, reproduce, edit, distribute, modify, adapt, create derivative works of, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, transmit, translate and license, digitally perform, make, have made, sell, offer for sale and import your Submissions in any and all embodiments, media and means of communication, now known or hereafter developed. You represent and warrant to us that your Submissions are original to you, that you own or otherwise control all of the rights in your Submissions, or that you have the rights necessary to grant to us the license to your Submissions granted above, and that your Submissions do not violate any rights, including the rights of privacy, of any party and do not otherwise violate the law. We agree that, if any Submission generates a sufficient level of popularity or mass appeal, as we may determine in our sole discretion, then we may enter into good faith negotiations with you of a royalty-bearing license agreement for exploitation of your Submission beyond the Site. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in these Terms shall impose any obligation or requirement on us to proceed with or conclude any agreement or transaction with you concerning any such Submission. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO GRANT THE RIGHTS GRANTED IN THIS PARAGRAPH, DO NOT SHARE, SUBMIT OR POST ANY SUBMISSION ON OR THROUGH THE SITE.
