Copyright and Proprietary Information
In this Agreement the content on the Site, including all information, methods, data, logos, marks, designs, graphics, pictures, sound files, other files, and their selection and arrangement, is called "Content". All Content and all software available on the Site or used to create and operate the Site is the property of Aviso or its licensors, and is protected by domestic and international copyright laws, and all rights to the Site, such Content and such software are expressly reserved. All trademarks, registered trademarks, product names and company names or logos mentioned in the Site are the property of their respective owners. Reference to any products, services, processes or other information, by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation thereof by Aviso.
Content provided by users is called "User Content". User Content includes, but it is not limited to, profile information supplied by users or provided by the school or other educational institution that gives you access to the Site, posts and questions submitted to the Site, messaging to other users within the Site, certain biographical or business information supplied by users, and any other information submitted by a user for display on the Site. User Content is that user's property. Aviso's only right to that User Content is the limited licenses to it granted in this Agreement. Those licenses are described in Section 4 this Agreement.
Our Limited License of Content to You
Aviso grants you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable license to access the Site and to view, copy and print the portions of the Content available to you on the Site for personal use only or for use by your specific business; provided, however, that no Content may be distributed by you to any third parties without our express permission. Such license is subject to this Agreement, and specifically conditioned upon your compliance with this Agreement, including without limitation, Aviso's Acceptable Use Policy. Except as expressly permitted above, any use of any portion of the Content without the prior written permission of its owner is strictly prohibited and will terminate the license granted in this Section, this Agreement and your account with us. Any such unauthorized use may also violate applicable laws, including without limitation copyright and trademark laws. Unless explicitly stated herein, nothing in this Agreement may be construed as conferring any license to intellectual property rights, whether by estoppel, implication or otherwise. The license in this Section is revocable by us at any time.
Your Limited License of Content to Us
Therefore, by posting or distributing User Content to or through the Site, you (a) grant Aviso and its affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right to use, display, perform, reproduce, distribute, publish, modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from such User Content on the Site, in the manner in and for the purposes for which the Site from time to time uses such User Content; and (b) represent and warrant that (i) you own and control all of the rights to the User Content that you post or otherwise distribute, or you otherwise have the lawful right to post and distribute that User Content, to or through the Site; and (ii) the use and posting or other transmission of such User Content does not violate this Agreement and will not violate any rights of or cause injury to any person or entity.
If your User Content is intended for the use of other Users, you also grant us and our affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right to sublicense such User Content to such Users for their use in connection with their use of the Site.
These licenses from you are non-exclusive because you have the right to use your User Content elsewhere. They are royalty-free because we are not required to pay you for the use of your User Content on the Site. And they are transferable because we need the right to transfer these licenses to any successor operator of the Site. Our rights to "modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from" are necessary because the normal operation of the Site does this to your User Content when it processes it for use on the Site.
