General statement of website use
(i) your use of the website is solely for your personal use;
(iii) you will not alter or modify any part of the website other than as may be reasonably necessary to use the website for its intended purpose; and
In order to access some features of the website, you will have to create an account. You may never use another person's account without permission. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. You must notify Golden Tree immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. Although Golden Tree will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you may be liable for the losses of Golden Tree or others due to such unauthorized use.
Golden Tree reserves the right to establish data transfer restrictions, limit the total amount of data transfer associated with your account, or both. Your account may be closed by Golden Tree should the total amount of data transfer exceed an amount deemed excessive in Golden Tree's sole discretion.
You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, "robots", "spiders", "offline readers", or similar systems, that accesses the website in a manner that sends more request messages to the Golden Tree servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line web browser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Golden Tree grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the site for the sole purpose of creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. Golden Tree reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases. You agree not to collect or harvest any personally identifiable information, including account names, from the website.
In order to post or publish User Submissions, defined below, on the website, you will be required to encode your media data by downloading and installing the Golden Tree software. For these limited purposes only, you are hereby granted a revocable non-exclusive licence to use the Golden Tree software for the sole purpose of encoding digital audiovisual material in order to create User Submissions for the website. Golden Tree makes no warranty concerning the functionality of the Golden Tree software on any individual computer and expressly disclaims any and all liability for any problem which may be caused to your computer or damage of any kind incurred by you resulting from your use of the Golden Tree software. You hereby waive any legal or equitable rights or remedies you may have against Golden Tree with respect to your use thereof.
The website may permit the submission of videos or other communications submitted by you and other users ("User Submissions") and the hosting, sharing, and publishing of such User Submissions. Golden Tree may also establish categories for User Submissions based on intended use, such as “Private” where User Submissions are not shared, “Invited” where there is an invitation to view, share, or both, and “Public”. You understand that whether or not such User Submissions are published and regardless of category, Golden Tree does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any such submissions. You also understand and agree that Golden Tree may place advertising on the website in conjunction with User Submissions.
You are solely responsible for your own User Submissions and the consequences of posting, sharing, or publishing them. For all User Submissions you submit which are intended for public use, you represent and warrant that:
For User Submissions you submit, you further agree that you will not:
(i) submit material that is copyrighted, protected by trade mark or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner to post the material and to grant Golden Tree all of the license rights granted herein;
(ii) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage Golden Tree or any third party;
(iii) submit material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libellous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offence, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate;
(iv) post advertisements or solicitations of business; or
(v) impersonate another person.
Golden Tree reserves the right to discontinue any aspect of the Golden Tree website at any time.
You understand that when using the Golden Tree website, you will be exposed to User Submissions from a variety of sources, and that Golden Tree is not responsible for and makes no warranties concerning the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of or relating to such User Submissions. You further understand and acknowledge that you may be exposed to User Submissions that are inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable, and you hereby waive any legal or equitable rights or remedies you may have against Golden Tree with respect to such User Submissions.
