Atomic Reach shall make the Services available to you through the Internet and the Services will be maintained on computer servers and equipment not necessarily in the possession or control of Atomic Reach. The Services will be made accessible to you through the Internet through a secure password protected site(s) hosted by Atomic Reach or a third party. You acknowledge that Atomic Reach may use third party service providers and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run the Services.
To access and use the Services, you will need to create an account (“Account”). If you are accessing the Services on behalf of an organization and multiple authors wish to contribute User Content, each author must also create their own account (an “Author Account”). Each Author Account will incur additional fees.
You may not share your Account with others. If you are accessing the Services through an Author Account, only you may use such Author Account. The sharing of Author Accounts is strictly prohibited and failure to comply may result in immediate termination of your organization’s Account and/or your Author Account.
You agree that you will: (a) maintain and update such Registration Data as necessary in order to keep such information current, complete, and accurate; (b) maintain the confidentiality of any passwords or other Account or Author Account identifiers which you choose or that are assigned to you as a result of any registration or creation of an Account or Author Account with the Services: and (c) be responsible for all activities that occur under such password, Account or Author Account. Further, you agree to immediately notify Atomic Reach of any unauthorized use of your password, Account or Author Account in the event that the confidentiality of your password, Account or Author Account is compromised. You shall aid Atomic Reach and its third party service providers in any investigation or legal action taken by Atomic Reach, such third parties or any governmental authority in connection with any security breach. Failure to comply with this paragraph may result in immediate termination of your Account or Author Account. Except if you reside in Québec, Atomic Reach shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, in any way for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of, or in connection with, your failure to comply with this section.
You retain your ownership in and to any content (including Registration Data, Personal Information and all other information, text or other materials or information submitted by you, or required from you by Atomic Reach, for the purpose of providing the Services) (“User Content”) you submit, post or upload to the Services, and your use of the Services does not transfer any ownership from you to Atomic Reach. By making User Content available through the Services, you hereby grant Atomic Reach and its licensors and third party service providers, without any additional consideration, a worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual, transferable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully paid up license (with a right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, analyze, reformat, transmit, display, translate, excerpt and distribute User Content, or any part thereof, in personalized form, provided through your Account or Author Account, as applicable, for the purpose of providing you with the Services, and to use, copy, disclose, and publish your User Content in aggregated, anonymous form (the “User Content License”).
You hereby waive, in favour of Atomic Reach, your moral rights under Canada’s Copyright Act or any successor legislation or similar law under the laws of Canada or the laws of other countries, that you, as author, have or may have in your User Content.
You understand that the User Content uploaded, posted, or submitted to the Services from your Account or Author Account, as applicable, may be processed and transferred, unencrypted, and may involve: (i) transmissions over various networks both within and outside of Canada; and (ii) changes to such User Content to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.
Atomic Reach has the right (but not the obligation) in its sole discretion to remove any User Content and terminate Accounts and Author Accounts for any reason whatsoever, including Accounts and Author Accounts containing User Content that Atomic Reach determines, in its sole discretion, to be unlawful, offensive, harmful, inaccurate, inappropriate, deceptive, libelous, defamatory, pornographic, obscene, or otherwise objectionable, or violates any third party’s intellectual property rights.
You may choose to submit comments, corrections, recommendations, suggestions or other ideas to Atomic Reach about the Services, including about how to improve the Services (“Feedback”). By providing Feedback to Atomic Reach you agree that: your provision of such Feedback is free of charge, unsolicited and without restriction; Atomic Reach can use or disclose to any third party the Feedback without any additional compensation to you; and Atomic Reach owns all rights and interest in such Feedback. Atomic Reach does not waive any rights to use any Feedback or similar Feedback developed or obtained by Atomic Reach.
