ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
Sideline Software, Inc. (“Sideline”) provides the MyFantasyLeague.com Fantasy Football Commissioner Service (the “Service”) as defined below to you subject to the following terms of service (“TOS”). Sideline reserves the right to make additions, revisions, and modifications to these terms at any time.

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
Sideline offers a web-based league management system for you to use in order to manage a fantasy football league on the World Wide Web of the Internet at http://hom.myfantasyleague.com (the “Site”, “MFL”). In addition to the core features offered by Sideline, this Service may include information and features from third-party partners of Sideline. You acknowledge and agree that you must: (a) provide for your own access to the World Wide Web and pay any service fees associated with such access, and (b) provide all equipment necessary for you to make such connection to the World Wide Web, including a computer and modem or other access device.
All information, content, software, design, text, images, photographs, illustrations, audio clips, video clips, artwork, graphic material, or other copyrightable elements displayed on, transmitted through, or used in connection with site, and the selection and arrangements thereof, and trademarks, service marks and trade names (the “Material”) are the property of Sideline or other respective owners and are protected, without limitation, pursuant to U.S. and foreign copyright, trademark and other applicable laws. Sideline hereby grants you a personal, non-exclusive, non-assignable and non-transferable license to use and display the Material for noncommercial and personal use only provided that you maintain all copyright and other notices contained in such Material. In accepting these TOS, you agree not to reproduce, modify, create derivative works from, display, perform, publish, distribute, disseminate, broadcast or circulate any Material to any third party (including, without limitation, the display and distribution of the Material via a third party website) without the express prior written consent of Sideline. You may not distribute any Material to others, whether or not for payment or other consideration, and you may not modify, copy, cache, reproduce, sell, publish, transmit, display or otherwise use any portion of the Material. You may not screen scrape or otherwise copy our Material without permission. You agree not to decompile, reverse engineer or disassemble any software or other products or processes accessible through Site, and not to use any data mining, data gathering or extraction method. Any unauthorized or prohibited use may subject the offender to civil liability and criminal prosecution under applicable federal and state laws.
Sideline permits you to upload information, advice, text, data, software, messages and other materials to the Site (“Customer Content”). Customer Content is your sole responsibility. This means that you, and not Sideline, are entirely responsible for all of Customer Content that you upload, post, e-mail, transmit or otherwise make available via the Service. Sideline cannot ensure the security of any information you post on publicly available areas of the Service. Under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any of Customer Content including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in Customer Content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any of Customer Content made available via the Service. Sideline does not claim ownership of Customer Content. However, you hereby grant us a world-wide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sub-licensable right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, and display Customer Content and to incorporate Customer Content in other works in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed. You acknowledge that we do not pre-screen Customer Content, but that we have the right, but not the obligation, in our sole discretion to modify, transmit over various networks, refuse or move any of Customer Content that is available on the Service. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any of Customer Content including, but not limited to, any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of Customer Content. You acknowledge and agree that Sideline may archive Customer Content and may also disclose Customer Content at any time and for any reason. Since we do not pre-screen user generated content, you may be exposed to content that is offensive, indecent, or objectionable.
Any material (e.g., email, posting to our support boards) you send us, solicited or unsolicited, including, but not limited to creative suggestions, ideas, notes, concepts, or other information (collectively, the “Submissions”), the Submissions shall be deemed, and shall remain, our property. None of the Submissions shall be subject to any obligation of confidentiality on our part and we shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submissions. Without limitation of the foregoing, we shall exclusively own all now-known or hereafter existing rights to the Submissions of every kind and nature throughout the universe and shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the Submissions for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to the provider of the Submissions or any other person or entity.
You agree to indemnify and hold Sideline, its affiliates, partners, contractors, vendors, officers, directors and employees harmless from any claim, action, demand, loss, or damages (including attorneys’ fees) made or incurred by any third party arising out of or relating to your use of the Service.
