Subject to and conditioned upon your compliance with these Terms, we grant to you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, nonsublicensable, limited right and license to access and use the Site, including any images, text, graphics, sounds, data, links and other materials incorporated into the Site (other than your Submissions), solely as made available by us and solely for your own personal purposes. The Site, including all such materials and all intellectual property rights therein, remain the property of Rodan + Fields or its licensors or suppliers. Except as expressly authorized by these Terms, you may not use, reproduce, distribute, modify, transmit or publicly display any portion of the Site without the written consent of Rodan + Fields. While using the Site, you agree not to:
In the event that you post or upload to the Site, or otherwise submit to Rodan + Fields as part of your use of the Site, any materials including, without limitation, photographs and other images, text, graphics, sounds, data, links and other materials (collectively, “Submissions”), you will retain ownership of such Submissions, and you hereby grant us and our designees a worldwide, non-exclusive, sublicenseable (through multiple tiers), assignable, royalty-free, fully paid-up, perpetual, irrevocable right to use, reproduce, distribute (through multiple tiers), create derivative works of, and publicly display and perform such Submissions, in connection with the Site. Except for the foregoing license, we do not claim ownership of any copyright in your Submissions. You represent, warrant and covenant that you own or otherwise possess all necessary rights with respect to your Submissions, and that your Submissions do not and will not infringe, misappropriate, use or disclose without authorization, or otherwise violate any intellectual property or proprietary right of any third party, and are not unlawful, fraudulent, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, obscene or otherwise objectionable.
The Site may permit users to share their Submissions with other users, including through our user forums (“Forums”). Some Forum participants may use anonymous screen names and may have no other connection with Rodan + Fields. A large volume of material is available in our Forums and Forum participants may occasionally post messages or make statements, whether intentionally or unintentionally, that are inaccurate, misleading or deceptive. We neither endorse nor are responsible for such messages or statements, or for any opinion, advice, information or other utterance made or displayed on the Site by third parties, whether such third parties are users of the Site or others. The opinions expressed in the Forums reflect solely the opinions of the participants and may not reflect the opinions of Rodan + Fields. We are not responsible for any errors or omissions in articles or postings, for hyperlinks embedded in messages or for any results obtained from the use of such information. Under no circumstances will we or our affiliates, suppliers or agents be liable for any loss or damage caused by your reliance on such information obtained through the Site. We may, but have no obligation to, monitor the Forums and any materials displayed, transmitted or otherwise made available on or through the Forums.
Rodan + Fields is committed to protecting copyrights and expects users of the Site to do the same. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that any material used or displayed on or through the Site infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the material on the Site; (d) the name, address, telephone number and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.copyright.gov/ for details. DMCA notices and counter-notices regarding the Site should be sent to:
