Rights

1. Miskatonic University does not claim ownership of any Content that you post on or through the Service. Instead, you hereby grant to Miskatonic University a non-exclusive, fully paid and royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to use the Content that you post on or through the Service, subject to the Service’s Privacy Policy, available here http://Miskatonic University.com/legal/privacy/, including but not limited to sections 3 (“Sharing of Your Information”), 4 (“How We Store Your Information”), and 5 (“Your Choices About Your Information”). You can choose who can view your Content and activities, including your photos, as described in the Privacy Policy.
2. Some of the Service is supported by advertising revenue and may display advertisements and promotions, and you hereby agree that Miskatonic University may place such advertising and promotions on the Service or on, about, or in conjunction with your Content. The manner, mode and extent of such advertising and promotions are subject to change without specific notice to you.
3. You acknowledge that we may not always identify paid services, sponsored content, or commercial communications as such.
4. You represent and warrant that: (i) you own the Content posted by you on or through the Service or otherwise have the right to grant the rights and licenses set forth in these Terms of Use; (ii) the posting and use of your Content on or through the Service does not violate, misappropriate or infringe on the rights of any third party, including, without limitation, privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, trademark and/or other intellectual property rights; (iii) you agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owed by reason of Content you post on or through the Service; and (iv) you have the legal right and capacity to enter into these Terms of Use in your jurisdiction.
5. The Service contains content owned or licensed by Miskatonic University (“Miskatonic University Content”). Miskatonic University Content is protected by copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret and other laws, and, as between you and Miskatonic University, Miskatonic University owns and retains all rights in the Miskatonic University Content and the Service. You will not remove, alter or conceal any copyright, trademark, service mark or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the Miskatonic University Content and you will not reproduce, modify, adapt, prepare derivative works based on, perform, display, publish, distribute, transmit, broadcast, sell, license or otherwise exploit the Miskatonic University Content.
6. The Miskatonic University name and logo are trademarks of Miskatonic University, and may not be copied, imitated or used, in whole or in part, without the prior written permission of Miskatonic University, except in accordance with our brand guidelines. In addition, all page headers, custom graphics, button icons and scripts are service marks, trademarks and/or trade dress of Miskatonic University, and may not be copied, imitated or used, in whole or in part, without prior written permission from Miskatonic University.
7. Although it is Miskatonic University’s intention for the Service to be available as much as possible, there will be occasions when the Service may be interrupted, including, without limitation, for scheduled maintenance or upgrades, for emergency repairs, or due to failure of telecommunications links and/or equipment. Also, Miskatonic University reserves the right to remove any Content from the Service for any reason, without prior notice. Content removed from the Service may continue to be stored by Miskatonic University, including, without limitation, in order to comply with certain legal obligations, but may not be retrievable without a valid court order. Consequently, Miskatonic University encourages you to maintain your own backup of your Content. In other words, Miskatonic University is not a backup service and you agree that you will not rely on the Service for the purposes of Content backup or storage. Miskatonic University will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the Services, or the loss of any Content. You also acknowledge that the Internet may be subject to breaches of security and that the submission of Content or other information may not be secure.
8. You agree that Miskatonic University is not responsible for, and does not endorse, Content posted within the Service. Miskatonic University does not have any obligation to prescreen, monitor, edit, or remove any Content. If your Content violates these Terms of Use, you may bear legal responsibility for that Content.
9. Except as otherwise described in the Service’s Privacy Policy, available at http://Miskatonic University.com/legal/privacy/, as between you and Miskatonic University, any Content will be non-confidential and non-proprietary and we will not be liable for any use or disclosure of Content. You acknowledge and agree that your relationship with Miskatonic University is not a confidential, fiduciary, or other type of special relationship, and that your decision to submit any Content does not place Miskatonic University in a position that is any different from the position held by members of the general public, including with regard to your Content. None of your Content will be subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of Miskatonic University, and Miskatonic University will not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Content you provide.
10. It is Miskatonic University’s policy not to accept or consider content, information, ideas, suggestions or other materials other than those we have specifically requested and to which certain specific terms, conditions and requirements may apply. This is to avoid any misunderstandings if your ideas are similar to those we have developed or are developing independently. Accordingly, Miskatonic University does not accept unsolicited materials or ideas, and takes no responsibility for any materials or ideas so transmitted. If, despite our policy, you choose to send us content, information, ideas, suggestions, or other materials, you further agree that Miskatonic University is free to use any such content, information, ideas, suggestions or other materials, for any purposes whatsoever, including, without limitation, developing and marketing products and services, without any liability or payment of any kind to you.
