In addition, you are strictly prohibited from creating derivative works, or materials that otherwise are derived from or based on in any way the Content, including montages, mash-ups and similar videos, wallpaper, desktop themes, greeting cards, and merchandise, unless you have obtained the prior written consent of StrikeTV or unless it is expressly permitted by StrikeTV on a Site. This prohibition applies even if you intend to give away the derivative materials.

The Video Player. With respect to StrikeTV's video player, you must not modify, enhance, or otherwise alter in any way any portion of the video player or its underlying technology. This restriction includes disabling or otherwise modifying the video service in a manner that enables users to view the Content without using the StrikeTV video player.

No Spam/Unsolicited Communications. We know how annoying and upsetting it can be to receive unwanted email or instant messages from people you do not know. Therefore, no one may use the StrikeTV Services to harvest information about users for the purpose of sending, or to facilitate or encourage the sending of, unsolicited bulk or other communications. You understand that we may take any technical remedies to prevent unsolicited bulk or other communications from entering, utilizing or remaining within our computer or communications networks. If you Post (as defined below) or otherwise send spam, advertising, or other unsolicited communications of any kind through the StrikeTV Services, you acknowledge that you will have caused substantial harm to StrikeTV and that the amount of such harm would be extremely difficult to measure. As a reasonable estimation of such harm, you agree to pay StrikeTV $50 for each such unsolicited communication you send through the StrikeTV Services.

It is important that you understand that StrikeTV will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the StrikeTV Services.

4. PAYMENTS

5. ACCOUNTS AND REGISTRATION

We may from time to time offer various features that require registration or the creation of an account on the StrikeTV Site. If at any time you choose to register or create an account with us, these additional terms and conditions also will apply.

All registration information you submit must be accurate and updated. Please keep your password confidential. You will not have to reveal it to any representative of any Site. You are responsible for all use on your account, including unauthorized use by any third party. Therefore, it is critical that you do not share your password with anyone.

We reserve the right to immediately terminate your account or your use of the StrikeTV Services at any time without notice or liability if StrikeTV determines in its sole discretion that you have breached this Terms of Use, violated any law, rule, or regulation, or engaged in other inappropriate conduct. We also reserve the right to terminate your account or your use of the StrikeTV Services if such use places an undue burden on our networks or servers. Of course, we would prefer to avoid such termination; therefore, we may use technology to limit activities, such as the number of calls to the StrikeTV servers being made or the volume of User Material (as defined below) being Posted.

6. COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

For information about StrikeTV's policies and practices regarding the collection and use of your personally identifiable information, please read StrikeTV's Privacy Policy on the Strike.TV site. The Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference and made part of this Terms of Use.

7. USER REVIEWS, COMMENTS, AND OTHER MATERIAL

Your Posts. As part of the StrikeTV Services, users may have an opportunity to publish, transmit, submit or otherwise post (collectively, "Post") reviews, comments or other materials (collectively, "User Material"). In order to keep the StrikeTV Services enjoyable for all of our users, we ask you to adhere to the following rules.

Please choose carefully the User Material you Post. Please limit yourself to User Material directly relevant to the StrikeTV Services. Moreover, you must not Post User Material that: (a) contains Unsuitable Material; or (b) improperly claims the identity of another person. You should also be careful if you decide to Post personally identifiable information, such as your full name, email address, telephone number or street address.

You must be, or have first obtained permission from, the rightful owner of any User Material you Post. By submitting User Material, you represent and warrant that you own the User Material or otherwise have the right to grant StrikeTV the license provided below; you also represent and warrant that the Posting of your User Material does not violate any right of any party, including privacy rights, publicity rights, and intellectual property rights. In addition, you agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and other payments owed to any party by reason of your Posting User Material. StrikeTV will remove all User Material if properly notified that such User Material infringes on another person's rights. You understand that StrikeTV does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any User Material.

StrikeTV does not claim any ownership rights in User Material you Post. After Posting your User Material, you continue to retain all ownership rights. By Posting your User Material, you grant StrikeTV a limited license to use, display, reproduce, distribute, modify, delete from, add to, prepare derivative works of, publicly perform, and publish such User Material through the StrikeTV Services worldwide, in perpetuity, in any media formats and any media channels now known or hereinafter created. Without this license, we would not be able to provide your User Material in connection with the StrikeTV Services. For example, without the right to modify User Material, we could not format it to satisfy technical requirements, and without the right to publish User Material, we could not allow other users to view your User Material. The license you grant to StrikeTV is non-exclusive (meaning you are free to license your User Material to anyone else in addition to StrikeTV), fully-paid and royalty-free (meaning that StrikeTV is not required to pay you for the use of your User Material), and sublicensable (so that StrikeTV is able to use its affiliates, subcontractors and other partners such as internet content delivery networks to provide the StrikeTV Services). By Posting your User Material, you also hereby grant each user of the StrikeTV Services a non-exclusive limited license to access your User Material through the Sites, and to use, display, reproduce, distribute, and perform such User Material as permitted through the functionality of the StrikeTV Services and under these Terms of Use.

Third Party Posts. Despite these restrictions, please be aware that some material provided by users may be objectionable, unlawful, inaccurate or inappropriate. StrikeTV does not endorse any User Material, and User Material that is Posted does not reflect the opinions or policies of StrikeTV. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor User Material and to restrict or remove User Material that we determine, in our sole discretion, is inappropriate. In no event does StrikeTV assume any responsibility or liability whatsoever for any User Material, and you agree to waive any legal or equitable rights or remedies you may have against StrikeTV with respect to such User Material. You can help us tremendously by notifying us of any inappropriate User Material you find. If a "report" feature through the StrikeTV Services is not available for a specific instance of inappropriate User Material, please email feedback@strike.tv (subject line: "Inappropriate User Material").

8. LINKED WEBSITES AND ADVERTISING

Third Party Websites. If we provide links or pointers to other websites, no inference or assumption should be made that StrikeTV operates, controls, or is otherwise connected with these websites. When you click on a link within the StrikeTV Services, we will not warn you that you have left a Site and are subject to the terms and conditions (including privacy policies) of the destination website. In some cases it may be less obvious than others that you have left a Site and reached another website. Please be careful to read the terms of use and privacy policy of any website before you provide any confidential information or engage in any transactions. You should not rely on these Terms for another website.

StrikeTV is not responsible for the content or practices of any other website, even if it links to the StrikeTV Site or any of the other Sites and even if the website is operated by a company affiliated or otherwise connected with StrikeTV. By using the StrikeTV Services, you acknowledge and agree that StrikeTV is not responsible or liable to you for any content or other materials hosted and served from any third party website.

Advertisements. StrikeTV takes no responsibility for advertisements or any third party material Posted on any of the Sites, nor does it take any responsibility for the products or services provided by advertisers. Any dealings you have with advertisers found while using the StrikeTV Services are between you and the advertiser, and you agree that StrikeTV is not liable for any loss or claim that you may have against an advertiser.

10. UNSOLICITED SUBMISSIONS

StrikeTV does not knowingly accept unsolicited submissions including, scripts, story lines, articles, fan fiction, characters, drawings, information, suggestions, ideas or concepts. StrikeTV's policy is to delete any such submission without reading it. Therefore, any similarity between an unsolicited submission and any elements in any StrikeTV creative work, including a film, series, story, title, or concept, would be purely coincidental.

If you believe that any Content, User Material or other material provided through the StrikeTV Services, including through a link, infringes your copyright, you should notify StrikeTV of your infringement claim in accordance with the procedure set forth below.

We will process each notice of alleged infringement which StrikeTV receives and take appropriate action in accordance with applicable intellectual property laws.

13. GENERAL INFORMATION

International Use. StrikeTV's goal is to bring you as much Content as is legally available. That said, we are limited by the rights that our content licensors grant to us. Using technologies to access the Content from territories where StrikeTV does not have rights is prohibited.

Export Controls. Software and the transmission of applicable technical data, if any, in connection with the StrikeTV Services are subject to export controls. You agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding software and the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country in which you reside.

Choice of Law. This Terms of Use is governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of California without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law. You agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in the Los Angeles County of the State of California.

No Waiver/Reliance. If you see other users violating these Terms from time to time, we would appreciate it if you would let us know at feedback@strike.tv (subject line: "TOU Violation"). Precisely how StrikeTV responds to a party that is violating these Terms will be determined after carefully analyzing all of the facts and circumstances of a particular case. Please do not rely upon StrikeTV's precise response in one situation as any indication of what StrikeTV might do with respect to a different party or a different situation at a different time. In addition, please do not construe a waiver of any provision of these Terms of Use with respect to any user as a further or continuing waiver of such provision or any other provision with respect to that user or any other user. StrikeTV's decision to delay exercising or enforcing any right or remedy under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or remedy.

Integration, Amendment, and Severability. Please note that this Terms of Use constitutes the entire legal agreement between you and StrikeTV and governs your use of the StrikeTV Services (but excluding any services, if any, that StrikeTV may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replaces any prior agreements between you and StrikeTV in relation to the StrikeTV Services. It may not be amended or varied by you except in a writing signed by StrikeTV. Although we understand that electronic or digital signatures are frequently viewed as the equivalent of traditional written signatures these days, for these purposes a signature may not include an electronic or digital signature. Even if StrikeTV acts in a way that appears to you to be inconsistent with these Terms of Use, such action(s) should not be deemed a waiver or constructive amendment of these Terms. This Terms of Use operates to the fullest extent permissible by law. If any provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Thank you for taking the time to read this Terms of Use. By following these Terms, the experience will be better for all users. Enjoy the StrikeTV Services!
