  • You are the creator and owner of, or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and to authorize DBI to use and distribute User Content as necessary to exercise the licenses granted by you herein and in the manner contemplated by Us and these Terms.
  • User Content, and the use of User Content as contemplated by the Terms, does not and will not: (a) infringe, violate or misappropriate any third-party right, including any copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, moral right, privacy right, right of publicity, or any other intellectual property or proprietary right; or (b) slander, defame, or libel any third-party.

Further, you understand and agree that We have the right to refuse to provide services to you or any other individual for any reason in Our sole discretion. Such alteration in service or refusal to provide service shall NOT be a breach of these Terms or any agreement with you and shall NOT subject DBI to any liability at law or in equity, without limitation, even if you suffer damages.

Your fraudulent, abusive, or otherwise illegal or unauthorized activity, or any activity in breach of these Terms, will be grounds for termination of the limited license to use Our Site granted by these Terms and will result in the cancellation of your license to view and use the Site.
