Your AOC Connect Account and Profile
If you create an account on the Website, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the Website. You must not describe or assign content to your account in a misleading or unlawful manner, including in a manner intended to trade on the name or reputation of others, and AOC Connect may change or remove any content that it considers inappropriate or unlawful, or otherwise likely to cause AOC Connect liability.

Responsibility of Contributors
If you operate an account, comment on portfolio items, post material to the Website, post links on the Website, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available (any such material, “Content”), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content. That is the case regardless of what form the Content takes, which includes, but is not limited to text, photo, video, audio, or code. By making Content available, you represent and warrant that:
the downloading, copying and use of the Content will not infringe the proprietary rights, including but not limited to the copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret rights, of any third party;
if your employer has rights to intellectual property you create, you have either (i) received permission from your employer to post or make available the Content, including but not limited to any software, or (ii) secured from your employer a waiver as to all rights in or to the Content;
you have fully complied with any third-party licenses relating to the Content, and have done all things necessary to successfully pass through to end users any required terms;
the Content does not contain or install any viruses, worms, malware, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content;
the Content is not spam, is not machine- or randomly-generated, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);
the Content is not obscene, libelous or defamatory, hateful or racially or ethnically objectionable, and does not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party;
your account is not getting advertised via unwanted electronic messages such as spam links on newsgroups, email lists, other blogs and web sites, and similar unsolicited promotional methods;
your account is not named in a manner that misleads your readers into thinking that you are another person or company. For example, your account’s URL or name is not the name of a person other than yourself or company other than your own; and
you have, in the case of Content that includes computer code, accurately categorized and/or described the type, nature, uses and effects of the materials, whether requested to do so by AOC Connect or otherwise.
By submitting Content to AOC Connect for inclusion on your account, you grant AOC Connect a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing, and promoting your Content. This license allows AOC Connect to make publicly posted content available to third parties selected by AOC Connect so that these third parties can analyze and distribute (but not publicly display) your content through their services. You also give other AOC Connect users permission to share your Content, so long as they use only a portion of your Content and they give you credit as the original author by linking back to your Content.
If you delete Content, AOC Connect will use reasonable efforts to remove it from the Website, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, AOC Connect has the right (though not the obligation) to, in AOC Connect’s sole discretion, (i) refuse or remove any content that, in AOC Connect’s reasonable opinion, violates any AOC Connect policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of AOC Connect to any individual or entity for any reason. AOC Connect will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.
