You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, download, stream capture, archive, upload, publish, broadcast, sell, resell, modify, translate, decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer or exploit for any purposes the RCI Network or any portion of the RCI Network, including, without limitation, the Content and the Marks, except as authorized by these Terms or as otherwise authorized in writing by RCI and its applicable licensors.

3. COMMENTS, REVIEWS
The RCI Network may enable you to submit your textual comments or other personal media content to the RCI Network (collectively “User Submissions”), and such User Submissions will generally be available to all users of the RCI Network. In certain instances, RCI may enable you to elect to make your User Submissions “private.” While this means that the applicable User Submissions will not be readily available through RCI’s search feature, it does not mean that the other persons, including, persons whom you have not granted access to the applicable User Submissions, will be unable to access or view the User Submissions. Among other things, any person who receives a link to a “private” User Submission (whether from you or otherwise) may access and view the User Submission and forward the link to others. Accordingly, RCI does not, and cannot, guarantee that a private User Submission will remain private.
RCI reserves the right to display advertisements in connection with your User Submissions and to use your User Submissions to advertise and promote your User Submissions or the RCI Network.
If you remove or delete a User Submission from the Site, that User Submission will be removed from the Site within a reasonable period of time. Nonetheless, a User Submission that you remove may still be available to third parties who previously acquired the link to User Submission and RCI may maintain copies for archival purposes. RCI is not required to host, display, or distribute any User Submissions, and may remove them at any time. RCI is not responsible for any loss, theft or damage of any kind to any User Submissions.
You represent and warrant that: (a) you own all rights in your User Submissions (including, without limitation, all rights to the audio, video, or digital recording, and the performance contained in your User Submissions) or, alternatively, you have acquired all necessary rights in your User Submissions to enable you to grant to RCI the rights in your User Submissions described herein; (b) you have paid or satisfied and will pay or satisfy in full all license fees, clearance fees, royalties, and any other financial or third party obligations of any kind, arising from any use or commercial exploitation of your User Submissions, and RCI will not be responsible for such obligations; (c) you are the individual pictured and/or heard in your User Submissions, or, alternatively, you have obtained permission from each person (including consent from parents or guardians for any individual under the applicable age of majority) who appears and/or is heard in your User Submissions to grant the rights to RCI described herein; (d) you will make such permissions available to RCI upon request; and (e) your User Submissions do not infringe the intellectual property rights, privacy rights, publicity rights, or any other legal or moral rights of any third party. You agree to keep all records necessary to establish that your User Submissions do not violate any of the foregoing representations and warranties and to make such records available to RCI upon RCI’s request.
You acknowledge that RCI does not necessarily pre-screen any User Submissions uploaded by you or other users of the RCI Network but that RCI may pre-screen or review after initial posting, User Submissions for a variety of reasons, including, without limitation, for compliance with these Terms. RCI and its designees shall have the right in its sole discretion to refuse or remove any User Submissions that violate the Terms or are otherwise objectionable. You may notify RCI of any User Submissions or users you find that violate these Terms by “flagging” such User Submission or reporting such user in the RCI Network. RCI does not endorse any User Submission, and any User Submissions on the RCI Network do not reflect the opinions or policies of RCI. RCI disclaims any and all liability in connection with any and all User Submissions, and you agree to waive any legal or equitable rights or remedies you may have against RCI with respect to such User Submissions.
You further agree that RCI and its affiliates are free to use for any purpose whatsoever, ideas, know-how, concepts, techniques, comments, criticisms, reports, or other feedback or content or User Submissions posted in response to, as a supplement to, or in association with any other content (including without limitation, User Submissions) available on or in connection with the RCI Network (“Feedback”), whether oral, written or video/multimedia, that you may send to RCI or its affiliates. You acknowledge and agree that you have no expectation of compensation or confidentiality of any nature, and that RCI has no duties to you, with respect to such Feedback.
