We do not, and cannot, pre-screen or monitor all UGC. Your use of the Service is at your own risk. By using the Service, you may be exposed to UGC that is offensive, indecent or otherwise not in line with your expectations. You bear all risks associated with the use of any UGC available in connection with the Service. At our discretion, our representatives or technology may monitor and/or record your interaction with the Service or communications (including without limitation chat text) when you are using the Service.
By entering into these Terms of Service, you hereby provide your irrevocable consent to such monitoring and recording.
Mutate reserves the right in its sole discretion to review, monitor, prohibit, edit, delete, disable access to or otherwise make unavailable any UGC (including without limitation your UGC) without notice for any reason or for no reason at any time. If at any time Mutate chooses, in its sole discretion, to monitor the Service, Mutate nonetheless assumes no responsibility for UGC and assumes no obligation to modify or remove any inappropriate UGC. We have the right, but not the obligation, in our sole discretion to edit, refuse to post, or remove any UGC.
The Service may include various forums, blogs and chat features where you can post UGC, including your observations and comments on designated topics. Mutate cannot guarantee that other members will not use the ideas and information that you share. Therefore, if you have an idea or information that you would like to keep confidential and/or don't want others to use, do not post it on the Service. Mutate shall have no responsibility to evaluate, use or compensate you for any ideas or information you may choose to submit.
You are solely responsible for the information that you publish on, through or in connection with the Service and that you provide to others. Mutate may reject, refuse to post or delete any UGC for any or no reason, including, but not limited to, UGC that in the sole judgment of Mutate violates these Terms of Service.
You hereby grant to Mutate an irrevocable, perpetual, transferable, fully paid-up, royalty-free, worldwide license (including the right to sublicense and assign to third party) and right to copy, reproduce, fix, adapt, modify, create derivative works from, manufacture, commercialize, publish, distribute, sell, license, sublicense, transfer, lease, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, or provide access to electronically, broadcast, communicate to the public by telecommunication, display, perform, enter into computer memory, and use and practice, in any way, your UGC as well as all modified and derivative works thereof in connection with our provision of the Service, including marketing and promotions of the Service. You also hereby grant to Mutate the right to authorize others to exercise any of the rights granted to Mutate under these Terms of Service. You further hereby grant to Mutate the unconditional, irrevocable right to use and exploit your name, likeness and any other information or material included in any UGC and in connection with any UGC, without any obligation to you. Except as prohibited by law, you waive any rights of attribution and/or any moral rights you may have in your UGC, regardless of whether your UGC is altered or changed in any manner. Mutate does not claim any ownership rights in your UGC and nothing in these Terms of Service is intended to restrict any rights that you may have to use and exploit your UGC. Mutate has no obligation to monitor or enforce your intellectual property rights in or to your UGC.
Kindly note that if you provide UGC (such as a catalog item or other items to or for the Service), you do not have the right to remove or modify that UGC (unless Mutate provides tools for you to remove or modify that specific type of UGC, or unless otherwise required by law). When using the Service, you may be prompted to grant other Mutate users the right to use your UGC. If you agree to grant this right, other users may use your UGC to create their own games and other UGC on the Service, and you will not be entitled to any revenue that those other users earn, even if they use your UGC.
You are solely responsible for your interactions with other users of the Service and any other parties with whom you interact through the Service. Mutate reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way with these disputes. You will fully cooperate with Mutate to investigate any suspected unlawful, fraudulent or improper activity, including, without limitation, granting Mutate access to any password-protected portions of your Account.
If you have a dispute with one or more users, you release us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
