Postings to the services
The Service may permit you to post, submit, transmit, email, or otherwise make available questions, answers, comments, images, videos or other information (collectively, “Postings”.) You may only submit Postings that you created or that you have permission to submit and that do not violate copyright, trademark, or any other rights of third parties. We do not claim ownership of any Postings that you may submit. However, by submitting Postings, you grant us, our subsidiaries, affiliates, successors, and assigns a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, fully-paid, non-exclusive, and sub-licensable license to use, copy, display, distribute, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform and publicly display the Postings (in whole or in part) and to incorporate the Postings into other works in any format or medium now or later known.
You may not upload, post, submit, email, transmit, or otherwise make available any Postings that (i) contain falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage Koto-chie.net or any third party; (ii) are unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or are otherwise inappropriate; (iii) contain advertisements, solicitations of business or spam; (iv) disseminate or transmit any worms, viruses or other harmful, disruptive or destructive files, code or programs; (v) collect or store personal information about others or otherwise invade their privacy; or (vi) impersonate another person or forge headers or use any other method to disguise the true origin of the Posting. Additionally, you may not submit any Postings that violate the TOS. You acknowledge that Koto-chie.net is not obligated to pre-screen content submitted by members, but that Koto-chie.net shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to refuse or remove any content that is made available via Koto-chie.net by any user that violates the TOS or is otherwise objectionable. Koto-chie.net respects the intellectual property of others and asks you to do the same. Koto-chie.net may, in appropriate circumstances and at its sole discretion, terminate your right to use the Service for any reason, including, but not limited to, if you are a repeat infringer. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement or your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please do contact us.
