You hereby grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant, to Peek Mag an irrevocable, nonexclusive, royalty-free and fully paid, worldwide license to reproduce, distribute, publicly display and perform, prepare derivative works of, incorporate into other works, and otherwise use your User Content, and to grant sublicenses of the foregoing, for any lawful purpose.  You agree to irrevocably waive (and cause to be waived) any claims and assertions of moral rights or attribution with respect to your User Content.

Because we do not control User Content, you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for any User Content and we make no guarantees regarding the accuracy, currency, suitability, or quality of any User Content, and we assume no responsibility for any User Content.  Your interactions with other users of the Services are solely between you and such user.  You agree that Peek Mag will not be responsible for any loss or damage incurred as the result of any such interactions.  If there is a dispute between you and any user of the Services, we are under no obligation to become involved.  You acknowledge that other users may post comments about your User Content which may be derogatory, and Peek Mag has no obligation to monitor or delete any such User Content.  Peek Mag may remove or modify any User Content without notice or liability at any time in Peek Mag’s sole discretion.

  2. Invited Submissions.  From time to time, the Services may expressly request submissions of concepts, stories, or other potential content from you (“Invited Submissions”).  Please carefully read any specific rules or other terms and conditions that appear in connection with such Invited Submissions as such terms and conditions will govern the submissions and may affect your legal rights.  If no such additional terms govern those submissions, then this Agreement will apply in full to any Invited Submissions you make.  IN ANY EVENT, ANY MATERIAL YOU SEND TO US WILL NOT BE TREATED AS CONFIDENTIAL.  Regardless of any industry custom or practice, we will not pay you for the use of any content that you submit to through the Services.
  3. Enforcement.  If we become aware of a user’s violation of this Agreement, including the rights of any third party, we may take certain remedial steps, including refusing access to the Services to any person or entity and change eligibility requirements at any time.

Peek Mag reserves the right to investigate suspected violations of this Agreement, including without limitation, any violation arising from any User Content (including unsolicited or invited submissions), postings or emails you make on or send through the Services.  Peel Mag may seek to gather information from the user who is suspected of violating this Agreement and from any other user.  Peek Mag may suspend any users whose conduct or postings are under investigation and may remove such material from its servers as it deems appropriate and without notice.  If Peek Mag believes, in its sole discretion, that a violation of this Agreement has occurred, it may edit or modify any submission, posting or emails, remove the material permanently, cancel postings, warn users, suspend users and passwords, terminate accounts, or take other corrective action it deems appropriate.  Peek Mag may cooperate with law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing Peek Mag to disclose the identity of anyone posting any emails or publishing or otherwise making available any materials that are believed to violate this Agreement.  BY ACCEPTING THIS AGREEMENT, YOU WAIVE AND HOLD HARMLESS PEEK MAG (and its affiliates and its and their officers, directors, employees, contractors, and agents) FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY PEEK MAG (AND ITS AFFILIATES AND ITS AND THEIR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS, AND AGENTS) DURING OR AS A RESULT OF ITS INVESTIGATIONS AND/OR FROM ANY ACTIONS TAKEN AS A CONSEQUNCE OF INVESTIGATIONS BY EITHER PEEK MAG OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.
