You are reading these Terms because you are using a PHV website, digital experience, mobile app, or one of our other products or services, all of which are part of PHV’s Platform (“Platform”). You may access the Platform through a computer, mobile phone, tablet, console or other technology, which we refer to here as a “Device”. Your service provider’s normal rates and fees apply to your Device.
These Terms create a legally binding agreement between you and PHV and its affiliates (which we may refer to as “PHV”, “we”, “us” or “our”) regarding your use of the Platform. A few important points:
1. GROUND RULES
Rules for Registration. When you register for an account with us, the following rules apply:
Be True: Provide accurate and current registration information.
Be You: Keep your registration personal. Do not register for more than one PHV account, register a PHV account on behalf of someone else, or transfer your account.
Be Secure: Keep your username, password and other login credentials secure and do not allow anyone else to use your account.
Be Responsible: Inform PHV immediately of any unauthorized use of your PHV account. You are responsible for anything that happens through your PHV account – with or without your permission. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, PHV IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS OR ACTIVITY THAT RESULTS FROM THE UNAUTHORISZD USE OF YOUR ACCOUNT.
2. OWNERSHIP OF CONTENT
Except for User Content (defined below), all of the content on our Platform – including text, software, scripts, code, designs, graphics, photos, sounds, music, videos, applications, interactive features, articles, news stories, sketches, animations, stickers, general artwork and other content ("Content") – is owned by PHV or others we license Content from, and is protected by copyright, trademark, patent and other laws. PHV reserves all rights not expressly described in these Terms.
All trademarks, service marks and trade names are owned, registered and/or licensed by PHV. You do not acquire a licence or any ownership rights to any trademarks, service marks, or trade names through your access or use of the Platform or Content.
You agree not to change or delete any ownership notices from materials downloaded or printed from the Platform.
To the extent PHV approves the download or use of Content comprised of copyrights or copyrightable works, PHV grants you a limited, personal, non-transferable, non-sub licensable, and revocable licence to access and use such copyrights or copyrightable works solely for their intended purpose and solely for as long as PHV makes such Content generally available to the public. You do not acquire any ownership rights in the Content (including any trademarks or other intellectual property included in the Content), and all such Content is intended for personal, non-commercial use. PHV reserves the right to monitor your use and to alter or revoke this licence or your access to the Content at any time and for any reason. PHV reserves the right to take down any Content in violation of these terms or PHV’s intellectual property rights. PHV allowing you this limited use does not constitute a waiver of any of PHV’s rights to the Content.
Outside of the specific usage rights granted to you by PHV in connection with the Platform, you agree not to use, copy, edit, translate, display, distribute, download, transmit, sell, create derivative works of, or in any way exploit any Content, including User Content (unless it is your own User Content that you legally post on the Platform), without PHV’s prior written consent. Unauthorized use of the Content may constitute a breach of copyright, trademark or other intellectual property laws and may subject you to criminal or civil charges and penalties.
3. POSTING CONTENT ON THE PLATFORM
User Content Licence. Some parts of the Platform allow you to post photos, videos, comments, and other content, which we refer to as “User Content”. PHV is not responsible for User Content others post to the Platform. User Content is owned by you or whoever created it, but when you post User Content you license it to PHV as described below:
You represent that you have the right to post your User Content, and you grant PHV a non-exclusive, perpetual, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide licence to use any of the User Content that you post on or in connection with the Platform, including the likeness of any person that appears in the User Content, or any of the concepts or ideas contained in the User Content, for any purpose, including commercial use, which includes the right to translate, display, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, sublicense, distribute and assign these rights. PHV may, in its sole discretion, remove any User Content at any time.
You understand that deleted User Content may persist in PHV’s systems and on the Platform to the extent your User Content has been publicly posted or shared with others who have not deleted it, unless you or the relevant individual request deletion or blocking of personal data in accordance with applicable law.
LICENCE TO USE COMMENTS, FEEDBACK AND IDEAS. You understand that any comments, feedback or ideas you send us are provided on a non-confidential basis and you grant to PHV a perpetual, worldwide licence to use all comments, feedback and ideas you may share with us, without notice, compensation or acknowledgement to you, for any purposes whatsoever, including, but not limited to, developing, manufacturing and marketing products and services and creating, modifying or improving products and services.
