User Content on the Services may include a forum post, comment, review, information, data, images, videos, sounds and other data uploaded by a User to the Services. Your User Content is your responsibility. You are solely responsible for maintaining copies of and replacing any User Content you send to Plan Academy to post or store on the Services and/or that you, personally, post or store on the Services.

Although we have no obligation to do so, we have the absolute discretion to remove, screen or edit, without notice, any User Content posted or stored on the Services, and we may do this at any time and for any reason. Plan Academy’s only right to use that User Content is the limited licenses to it granted in these Terms. Those licenses are described in Section 11 of these Terms.

In particular, you may not use the Services or your access to our technology or any of our intellectual property rights, whether for yourself or for any other person, to research, develop or create, or to facilitate any of the foregoing by itself or any other person, any service or technology or product that competes with the Services or any other service provided through our technology or the Services, or that is similar thereto.
Third Party Sites, Content, and Software
The Services may contain links to third-party websites (“Third-Party Sites
”) and third-party content (“Third-Party Content
”). You use links to Third-Party Sites and any Third-Party Content or service provided there at your own risk. Plan Academy does not monitor or have any control over, and makes no claim or representation regarding, Third-Party Content or Third-Party Sites. Plan Academy provides access to such content only as a convenience, and a link to a Third-Party Site or Third-Party Content does not imply Plan Academy’s endorsement, adoption or sponsorship of, or affiliation with, such Third-Party Site or Third-Party Content. Plan Academy accepts no responsibility for reviewing changes or updates to, or the quality, content, policies, nature or reliability of, Third-Party Content, Third-Party Sites, or websites linking to the Site.

Advertisements and Promotions
Plan Academy may run advertisements and promotions from third parties on the Site. Your business dealings or correspondence with, or participation in promotions of advertisers other than Plan Academy, and any terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings are solely between you and such third party. Plan Academy is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings or as the result of the presence of third-party advertisers on the Site.
Your Limited License of Your User Content to Plan Academy
We do not claim any ownership interest in your User Content, but we do need the right to use your User Content to the extent necessary to operate the Site and provide the Services, now and in the future. For example, if you leave a comment on a blog post or post a review on a Product(s), either directly on the Site yourself or by sending to Plan Academy otherwise to do so, we need your license to display that User Content on the Site, and we need the right to sublicense that User Content to our other Users so that they can view that User Content. Therefore, by posting or distributing User Content to Plan Academy and/or to or through the Services, you (a) grant Plan Academy and its affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right to use, display, perform, reproduce, distribute, publish, modify, adapt, translate and create derivative works from such User Content, in the manner in and for the purposes which the Site and/or Services from time to time use such User Content; (b) represent and warrant that (i) you own and control all of the rights to the User Content, or otherwise have the lawful right to post and distribute that User Content, to or through the Site and/or Services; and (ii) the use and posting or other transmission of such User Content does not violate these Terms and will not violate any rights of or cause injury to any person or entity. If your User Content is intended for the use of other Users, you also grant us and our affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right to sublicense such User Content to such Users for their use in connection with their use of the Site and/or Services, as described in this Section. These licenses from you are non-exclusive because you have the right to use your User Content elsewhere. They are royalty-free because we are not required to pay you for the use of your User Content on the Site and/or Services. And they are transferable because we need the right to transfer these licenses to any successor operator of the Site and/or Services. Our rights to “modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from” are necessary because the normal operation of the Site and/or Services does this to your User Content when it processes it for use in the Site and/or Services.
