Rights You Grant to Us. Whenever you submit, post, upload, or otherwise make available User Content on a User Forum or directly to Pacific (including by email) you: (1) grant to Pacific an irrevocable, worldwide, nonexclusive, perpetual, fully sub-licensable and assignable, royalty-free license to use, exploit, reproduce, modify, translate, incorporate in other works, create derivative works from, publish, broadcast, and perform that User Content and your name, voice, likeness and other identifying information in connection with that User Content via any medium now known or later developed, without any compensation to you; and (2) waive all of your moral rights in that User Content to the fullest extent permitted by law, even if the User Content is altered or changed in a manner not agreeable to you.

Right To Screen and Remove Content. We retain the right (but not the obligation unless required by law), in our sole discretion and for any reason, to prescreen, monitor, edit, refuse to accept, post, remove, or move any User Content. However, we are not responsible for the content of User Content and if your User Content contains offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable content, or infringes on the rights of any third party, you may bear legal responsibility for that User Content.

No Confidential Relationship/No Unsolicited Materials.

You acknowledge and agree that your relationship with Pacific is not a confidential, fiduciary, or other type of special relationship, and that your decision to submit any User Content does not place Pacific in a position that is any different from the position held by members of the general public, including with regard to your User Content. None of your User Content will be subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of Pacific.
Pacific does not accept unsolicited User Content, including, without limitation, ideas for products, services, or features. We wish to avoid any misunderstandings when projects developed by or on behalf of Pacific may seem to others to be similar to their own creative ideas or materials. Therefore, please do not submit any such unsolicited User Content to us through the Site (including any User Forum), by email, or otherwise. If you nonetheless decide to make any such unsolicited submission, you agree to grant to Pacific the right and license to your unsolicited submission as set forth in the “Rights You Grant to Us” subsection, above.
Representations You Make to Us. You are responsible for all of your User Content. By submitting User Content, you represent and warrant to Pacific that your User Content: (1) is not confidential and that you have all necessary permission to submit it; and (2) does not infringe upon, misappropriate, or violate the rights of any third party, including, without limitation, any intellectual property rights, rights of publicity or privacy, or any other proprietary rights.

Acceptable Use Policy
The following rules are here to help you understand the conduct that is expected of you when you participate on any User Forum or other interactive areas of the Site. You agree that your participation in a User Forum or other interactive area of the Site is subject to all of these Terms, including the following “Acceptable Use Policy”:
1. Public forum. A User Forum is a public forum and User Content that you post on a User Forum will be accessible and viewable by others. Do not post personal information (e.g., full name, password, phone number, address, email address or other personally identifiable/contact information).
2. Don’t share other people’s personal information. Your User Content may not reveal another person’s address, phone number, email address, credit card number or any information that may be used to track, contact, or impersonate that individual or that is personal in nature.
3. User Content must be yours. All User Content must be original to you and you must have all rights in the User Content (or it must be in the public domain); OR, all persons who contributed in any way or have any rights to your User Content or otherwise appear in the User Content must have given you permission to upload and distribute the User Content on the Site and elsewhere.
4. Don’t upload third-party materials. Your User Content should not contain any visible logos, phrases or trademarks or other third-party materials. Do not use any User Content that belongs to other people and pass it off as your own. This includes any content that you might have found elsewhere on the Internet.
5. No pictures or images of anyone but you and your friends and family. If the ability to upload photos is made available on the Site and you choose to use such a feature (or to otherwise include images of real people in any User Content), make sure photos are only of you or of you and someone you know personally, but, in any event, only with their express permission to post it.
6. Original music only. Do not play or include any music, lyrics, or poetry in your User Content unless it is your original piece and performed only by you (or you have all rights to the musical work, including any performances). No jingles, sampling or otherwise using existing music.
7. Keep it relevant. Your User Content should relate to the content on the Site and should be intended to add to the discussion and community on the Site – it should not include irrelevant topics or postings.
8. Please follow codes of social decency. Express yourself with non-offensive individual self-expression. Be respectful of others’ opinions and comments so we can continue to build a User Forum for everyone to enjoy. If you think your User Content might offend someone, chances are it probably will and it doesn’t belong on a User Forum. Cursing, flaming, trolling, harassing, stalking, posting insulting comments, personal attacks, gossip, or similar actions are prohibited. Your User Content may not threaten, abuse, or harm others. Your User Content may not include any negative comments that are connected to race, national origin, gender, sexual preference, or physical handicap, or that are defamatory, indecent, obscene, pornographic, or sexually explicit.
9. Do not use a User Forum for commercial purposes. Your User Content may not advertise or promote a product or service except those provided on the Site or otherwise offered by Pacific. You may not use your User Content to raise money for anyone or for a pyramid or other multi-tiered marketing scheme.
10. Do not upload User Content that is inappropriate or illegal. Your User Content may not promote any illegal activity. If someone could go to jail or incur criminal or civil liability for taking action suggested by your User Content, don’t upload or post it. If you do upload or post User Content that is illegal or in violation of applicable law, we reserve the right to take any action that we (in our sole discretion) deem appropriate, including reporting you to the proper governmental authorities.
11. No violence. Your User Content may not promote violence or describe how to perform a violent or otherwise illegal or dangerous act.
12. Be honest and do not misrepresent yourself or your User Content. Do not impersonate any other person, user, or company (including impersonating a representative of Pacific) or upload or post User Content that you know is false, fraudulent, deceptive, inaccurate, misleading or that misrepresents your identity or affiliation with a person or company.
13. Don’t damage the Site or anyone’s device. User Content may not contain malware, viruses, Trojan horses, spyware or any other technologies that could impact the operation of the Site or any system.

Pacific also reserves the right to charge for use of the Site or a portion of the Site and to change its fees from time to time in its discretion.
Location of Site and Territorial Restrictions
Unless otherwise specified, the Site and its Materials are made available for use in the United States.
The information provided on the Site is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject Pacific to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country. Pacific controls and operates the Site from offices located in the United States and makes no representations or warranties that the information, products, or services contained on the Site are appropriate for use or access in locations outside the United States. Anyone using or accessing the Site from other locations does so on their own initiative and is responsible for compliance with applicable laws. We reserve the right to limit the availability of the Site (and/or the provision of any content, program, product, service or other feature described or available thereon) to any person, geographic area, or jurisdiction, at any time and in our sole discretion, and to limit the quantities of any such content, program, product, service or other feature that we provide.
Software related to or made available by this Site may be subject to United States export controls. Thus, no software from this Site may be downloaded, exported or re-exported: (a) into (or to a national or resident of) any country to which the United States has embargoed goods; or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Commerce Department’s Table of Deny Orders.

Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
Dispute Resolution and Arbitration. You and Pacific agree that all disputes between you and Pacific with regard to these Terms or your use of the Sites will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration under the American Arbitration Association’s (AAA) rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes or under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of JAMS Inc. (“JAMS”) or any successor to JAMS. In the event both AAA and JAMS are unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a “Demand for Arbitration”, then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by another mutually agreeable arbitration administration service who will hear the case. YOU HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE A TRIAL BY JURY. CLASS ACTION WAIVER: Neither you nor Pacific will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by these Terms. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the above, Pacific will be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in Los Angeles County, California and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action.
Desktop, online, written or telephone arbitration can be used for claims. If an in-person hearing is requested by you, required by the arbitrator or required by the rules of the arbitration administration hearing the claims, then arbitration will take place in Los Angeles County, California or Cook County, Illinois (determined by the party initiating arbitration) or any other location Pacific agrees to. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the rules of the arbitration administration hearing the claims. The arbitrator(s) will award to the prevailing party, if any, the costs and attorneys’ fees reasonably incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration. If the arbitrator(s) determine a party to be the prevailing party under circumstances where the prevailing party won on some but not all of the claims and counterclaims, the arbitrator(s) may award the prevailing party an appropriate percentage of the costs and attorneys’ fees reasonably incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration. In all other cases, you will bear 50% of the fees charged by the arbitration administration hearing the claims and you alone will be responsible for your attorneys’ fees. Notwithstanding the above, you will pay for all of your own travel costs if you initiate arbitration and you request an in-person hearing. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrators will not have any authority to award punitive or exemplary damages.
THE SUBSTANTIVE LAWS (AS DISTINGUISHED FROM THE CHOICE OF LAW RULES) OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA WILL GOVERN THE VALIDITY AND INTERPRETATION OF THESE TERMS AND ALL CAUSES OF ACTION (WHETHER SOUNDING IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS. THESE TERMS WILL SPECIFICALLY NOT BE GOVERNED BY THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTIONS ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS, IF OTHERWISE APPLICABLE.
You agree that any action at law or in equity relating to the arbitration provision of these Terms will be filed only in the state or federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action. Pacific reserves the right to change this dispute resolution provision, but any such changes will not apply to disputes arising before the effective date of the amendment. This dispute resolution provision will survive the termination of any or all of your transactions with Pacific.
If you access the Site via an application on Apple’s iOS Platform, you acknowledge and agree that Apple, and Apple’s subsidiaries, are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of these Terms, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against you as a third-party beneficiary of the Terms. If you are accessing the Site via an application on Apple’s iOS Platform, you agree that if the application or your possession and use of the application infringes on a third party’s intellectual property rights, you will not hold Apple responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claims.
The failure of Pacific to act with respect to a breach of these Terms by you or others does not constitute a waiver and will not limit Pacific’s rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches. No waiver by Pacific of any of these Terms will be of any force or effect unless made in writing and signed by a duly authorized officer of Pacific. Neither the course of conduct between the parties, nor trade practice will act to modify these Terms. Pacific may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without any notice to you. These Terms may not be assigned by you without Pacific’s prior written consent. If any provision of these Terms is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable by a court or other adjudicative body of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. The section titles in these Terms are inserted only as a matter of convenience and have no legal or contractual effect. You agree that these Terms will not be construed against Pacific by virtue of Pacific having drafted them. Provisions of these Terms that would logically survive termination shall survive the termination of these Terms for any reason (including without limitation, Our Disclaimer of Warranties, Limitation of Liability; Waiver, and Dispute Resolution and Arbitration).
Pacific will not be liable to you or be deemed to be in breach of its obligations under these Terms for any delay or failure in performance caused by acts beyond Pacific’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of God, war, terrorism, accidents, fires, floods, strikes, labor disputes, mechanical breakdown, shortages or delays in obtaining supplies, materials, labor, or transportation, interruption of utility services or the Internet, acts of any unit of government or any governmental agency, or any similar or dissimilar cause.
Pacific reserves the right to modify or add to these Terms as described in this section (“Updated Terms”). You agree that we may notify you of the Updated Terms by making them available via the Site, and that your use of the Site after we have posted the Updated Terms (or engaging in such other conduct as we may reasonably specify) constitutes your agreement to the Updated Terms. Therefore, you should review these Terms before using the Site. The Updated Terms will be effective as of the time of posting, or such later date as may be specified in the Updated Terms, and will apply to your use of the Site from that point forward.
