What we are allowed to do

We may publish, check, edit or remove all or part of the comments, material, social interactions, including your name, town and country, or details provided as part of your user profile, which you submit to the Website (i.e. ‘Your Content’), at our sole discretion. We are not obliged to do any of these things and we may not.

You retain any copyright you may have in Your Content. By submitting Your Content to us, you grant us a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive worldwide licence to use, copy, edit, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, make available, communicate and distribute Your Content (in whole or part) and/or to incorporate it in other works in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed.

By submitting Your Content, you warrant that you have the right to grant this licence.

To the extent permitted by law, you waive your moral rights (e.g. the right to be identified as author or to object to derogatory treatment) in Your Content.
This means, for example (without limitation), that we can:

Remove Your Content, even if you have not breached these Terms or our House Rules;
Use all or part of Your Content in promoting our products and services (e.g. your Website activity may be seen within some of our promotional material);

Suspending or terminating your registration

We reserve the right to suspend, terminate or prevent your registration at our sole discretion. This may be because, for example, we consider that you have breached or will breach these Terms or someone has reported abuse. However, we are not obliged to do these things.

Where we suspend, terminate or prevent your registration, you must not attempt to re-register under your own name or anyone else’s name or a false name or submit content (e.g. using someone else’s registration), without our permission.
