Additionally, we cannot and do not guarantee the authenticity or accuracy of any data that users may provide about themselves or relationships they may describe. Users may report any behavior in violation of the above to us by contacting us at email@example.com. If we believe that a user may be violating any of the above (or any of these Terms) we reserve the right (but not the obligation) to investigate such activity, to suspend a user’s account or activity pending or following such investigation and to terminate a user’s account.

You, or your licensors, retain full copyright of any User Content that you send us. By transmitting or posting any User Content to the Service, you hereby grant us a worldwide, irrevocable, fully transferable right to use, reproduce, distribute, modify, transmit, prepare derivative works of, display, perform, produce, aggregate, and otherwise use the User Content in connection with the Service for the Conferences (and if enabled any recording and playback of a prerecorded Conference) as well as in marketing, advertising, training, and educational material relating to the Service, including online or other digital media as well as in print. You further agree to indemnify us for any claim regarding our use of your User Content as set forth herein.
Loss of Content; Security; Unauthorized Viewing
Gleim utilizes industry standard reliability and security measures in an attempt to protect and preserve your data (including recorded Conferences); however, you acknowledge and agree it is impossible to guarantee complete security, transmission or storage of such content. Additionally, if our servers or the servers of third-party providers fail or become corrupt, we may lose and be unable to retrieve prerecorded Conferences or other data you have submitted via the Service. Additionally, if your account is closed for any reason, your content within the Service will be lost and/or inaccessible. Therefore, we urge you to maintain copies of all content submitted by you that you may wish to access or view later.
Although we attempt to secure the access to and viewing of Conferences by only authorized participants on the terms set by the applicable subscriber, it is possible that Conferences and portions thereof may be accessed, recorded, viewed, copied, distributed, and otherwise used by unauthorized third parties whether due to insecurity or errors in wireless or wired networks, servers, or other software or hardware, or unauthorized use of other persons’ account information. You understand and agree that we are not liable for such unauthorized accessing, recording, viewing, copy, distribution, or other use.
Platform and Vendor Requirements
The Service has been created to function across a wide variety of computers, mobile devices, browsers, and software configurations (“platforms”). However, we cannot guarantee that the Service will function on your platform or that all functionality will be enabled on a specific platform. The Service or certain features may function only partially or differently on some platforms and devices than on others. In addition, when hardware manufacturers or software developers make changes to their devices or software, as applicable, this may affect the functionality and appearance of the Service. Please contact our support team if you have questions on whether or not the Service is expected to function on your platform.
Other third-party software or technology that may be provided or distributed together with the Service will be subject to you explicitly accepting a license agreement with that third party. Gleim is not responsible for any non-performance or breach of any contract entered into between you and the third party. You release and indemnify Gleim and/or any of its officers and representatives from any cost, damage, liability, or other consequence of any of the actions of third-party providers and specifically waive any claims that you may have in this behalf under any applicable law.
The rights granted under these Terms are effective until terminated by us as follows: (i) we may terminate these Terms and your rights to use the Service upon your breach of these Terms or at the end of any period(s) for which Fees have been paid (except as otherwise provided above); and (ii) if you have not paid any fees for the Service, we may terminate your use of the Service or discontinue the Service at any time, with or without notice. Gleim may terminate your rights hereunder by denying access to Service, or by written notice including by electronic transmission to an email address or device indicated by you. Gleim’s rights and your representations and covenants under these Terms shall survive any termination or expiration hereof or your rights hereunder. Upon termination of your rights, you shall immediately cease use of the Service. You may not be able to retrieve any data you have submitted to us, including via the Service. In some cases, if you have stored Conferences or related data in or through the Service, upon termination we may cause the Service to discontinue publishing Conferences and may purge or delete the data relating to such Conferences.

If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms to be unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of the Terms shall continue in full force and effect. Note that Gleim may change this exclusive venue from time to time upon change of its headquarters or assignment of its rights hereunder to an acquirer of its stock or of the Service.
