By displaying or publishing ("posting") any Content on or through the Ponguniverse Services, you hereby grant to Ponguniverse a non-exclusive, fully paid and royalty-free, worldwide, limited license to use, modify, delete from, add to, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce and translate such Content, including without limitation distributing part or all of the Site in any media formats through any media channels, except Content not shared publicly ("private") will not be distributed outside the Ponguniverse Services.

Some of the Ponguniverse Services are supported by advertising revenue and may display advertisements and promotions, and you hereby agree that Ponguniverse may place such advertising and promotions on the Ponguniverse Services or on, about, or in conjunction with your Content. The manner, mode and extent of such advertising and promotions are subject to change without specific notice to you.

You represent and warrant that: (i) you own the Content posted by you on or through the Ponguniverse Services or otherwise have the right to grant the license set forth in this section, (ii) the posting and use of your Content on or through the Ponguniverse Services does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights, intellectual property rights or any other rights of any person, and (iii) the posting of your Content on the Site does not result in a breach of contract between you and a third party.

Although the Site and other Ponguniverse Services are normally available, there will be occasions when the Site or other Ponguniverse Services will be interrupted for scheduled maintenance or upgrades, for emergency repairs, or due to failure of telecommunications links and equipment that are beyond the control of Ponguniverse. Also, although Ponguniverse will normally only delete Content that violates this Agreement, Ponguniverse reserves the right to delete any Content for any reason, without prior notice.
