  6. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

    The Platform contains material, such as photographs, videos, software, text, graphics, images, sound recordings, and other material provided by or on behalf of The Cultivist (collectively referred to as the “Content”). The Content may be owned by us, Museums, or other third parties. The Content is protected under both United States and foreign laws. Unauthorized use of the Content may violate copyright, trademark, and other laws. You have no rights in or to the Content (other than your own Museum Content if you are an Administrator), and you will not use the Content except as permitted under this Agreement and the functionality of the Platform. No other use is permitted without prior written consent from us. You must retain all copyright and other proprietary notices contained in the original Content. You may not sell, transfer, assign, license, sublicense, or modify the Content or reproduce, display, publicly perform, make a derivative version of, distribute, or otherwise use the Content in any way for any public or commercial purpose. The use or posting of the Content on any other website or in a networked computer environment for any purpose is expressly prohibited.

    If you violate any part of this Agreement, your permission to access and/or use the Content and the Platform automatically terminates and you must immediately destroy any copies you have made of the Content.

    The trademarks, service marks, and logos of The Cultivist (“The Cultivist Trademarks”) used and displayed on the Platform are registered and unregistered trademarks or service marks of The Cultivist. Other company, product, and service names located on the Platform may be trademarks or service marks owned by others (the “Third-Party Trademarks,” and, collectively with The Cultivist Trademarks, the “Trademarks”). Nothing on the Platform should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use the Trademarks, without our prior written permission specific for each such use. Use of the Trademarks as part of a link to or from any site is prohibited unless establishment of such a link is approved in advance by us in writing. All goodwill generated from the use of The Cultivist Trademarks inures to our benefit.

    Elements of the Platform are protected by trade dress, trademark, unfair competition, and other state and federal laws and may not be copied or imitated in whole or in part, by any means, including, but not limited to, the use of framing or mirrors. None of the Content may be retransmitted without our express, written consent for each and every instance.

  7. MUSEUM CONTENT; LICENSES

    As noted above, the Platform provides Administrators the ability to post and upload Museum Content. You expressly acknowledge and agree that once you submit your Museum Content for inclusion into the Platform, it will be accessible by others, and that there is no confidentiality or privacy with respect to such Museum Content, including, without limitation, any personally identifying information that you may make available. YOU, AND NOT THE CULTIVIST, ARE ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL YOUR MUSEUM CONTENT THAT YOU UPLOAD, POST, E-MAIL, OR OTHERWISE TRANSMIT VIA THE PLATFORM AND YOU WILL INDEMNIFY US IN RESPECT OF ANY LOSS, LIABILITY, CLAIM, OR DAMAGE SUFFERED OR INCURRED BY US IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR MUSEUM CONTENT.

    You retain all copyrights and other intellectual property rights in and to your own Museum Content. You do, however, hereby grant us and our sublicensees a non-exclusive, royalty-free, freely sublicensable license to modify, compile, combine with other content, copy, record, synchronize, transmit, translate, format, distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, and otherwise use or exploit (including for profit) your Museum Content and all intellectual property and moral rights therein via the Platform throughout the universe, in each case, by or in any means, methods, media, or technology now known or hereafter devised. You also grant us and our sublicensees the right, but not the obligation, to use your Museum Content, your Sign-In Name, name, likeness, and photograph in connection with any use of the related Museum Content permitted by the previous sentence and/or to advertise and promote the Services, the Platform, and/or The Cultivist. Without limiting the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that uses of your Museum Content, name, likeness, and photograph permitted by the foregoing rights and licenses may include the display of such Museum Content, name, likeness, and photograph adjacent to advertising and other material or content, including for profit. The licenses granted in this Section shall commence upon your registration to the Platform and shall terminate when your Museum no longer has a business relationship with The Cultivist.

    If you submit Museum Content to us, each such submission constitutes a representation and warranty to The Cultivist that such Museum Content is your original creation (or that you otherwise have the right to provide the Museum Content), that you have the rights necessary to grant the license to the Museum Content under the prior paragraph and that it and its use by The Cultivist and its content partners as permitted by this Agreement does not and will not infringe or misappropriate the intellectual property or moral rights of any person or contain any libelous, defamatory, or obscene material or content that violates our Community Guidelines.

    For the avoidance of doubt, any content uploaded or submitted to the Platform by Members will be subject to the license set forth in the Member Agreement.

  8. COMMUNICATIONS WITH US

    Although we encourage you to e-mail us, we do not want you to, and you should not, e-mail us any content that contains confidential information. With respect to all e-mails and communications you send to us, including, but not limited to, feedback, questions, comments, suggestions, and the like, we shall be free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained in your communications for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to, the development, production, and marketing of products and services that incorporate such information without compensation or attribution to you.

    TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAWS, IN NO EVENT SHALL WE BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, INCIDENTAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS, OR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM LOST DATA OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) RESULTING FROM THE USE, INABILITY TO USE, DISCLOSURE, DISPLAY, OR MAINTENANCE OF THE PLATFORM, THE SERVICES, OR THE CONTENT, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

  10. EXTERNAL SITES

    The Platform may contain links to third-party websites (“External Sites”). These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by us of the content on such External Sites. The content of such External Sites is developed and provided by others. You should contact the site administrator or webmaster for those External Sites if you have any concerns regarding such links or any content located on such External Sites. We are not responsible for the content of any linked External Sites and do not make any representations regarding the content or accuracy of materials on such External Sites. You should take precautions when downloading files from all websites to protect your computer from viruses and other destructive programs. If you decide to access linked External Sites, you do so at your own risk.

  11. REPRESENTATIONS; WARRANTIES; AND INDEMNIFICATION

    (a) If you are an Administrator, you hereby represent, warrant, and covenant that:

In such case, you agree to cooperate with any reasonable requests assisting our defense of such matter.

If you access the Platform, the Services, or the Content from outside of the United States, you do so at your own risk. Whether inside or outside of the United States, you are solely responsible for ensuring compliance with the laws of your specific jurisdiction.
