PROPRIETARY RIGHTS

This is an agreement for services and Customer is not granted any license hereunder. All software embedded in the Services, the Professional Services, and in any applications developed, owned or controlled by Closetbox (as applicable) (the "Software"), and the Services, are and shall remain the sole and exclusive property of Closetbox. Accordingly, Customer acknowledges that, as between Closetbox and Customer, Closetbox owns all right, title and interest in and to the Software and the Services, including, without limitation, all United States and international patent rights, copyrights, trademark rights, trade secret rights, and all other proprietary rights pertaining thereto. Except as expressly granted in this Agreement, Customer will not have or acquire any rights or interest in or to the Software or the Services. Customer acknowledges that the Software contains proprietary information and trade secrets of Closetbox. Customer will not take any actions inconsistent with Closetbox's ownership of each of Closetbox's rights in and to the Software. Customer agrees that Customer will not directly or indirectly: (i) assign, distribute, license, sublicense, transfer, sell, rent, lease, time share, grant a security interest in, or otherwise transfer any rights in or to the Software, or make the Software available to third parties except as authorized by this Agreement; (ii) modify, translate, reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the Software for any purpose, including, without limitation, the creation of derivative works or similar products; (iii) upload, link to or post any portion of the Software on a bulletin board, intranet, extranet or web site; (iv) use or distribute the Software in violation of any applicable laws, regulations or export restrictions; or (v) possess or use the Software in any format other than machine-readable format. All rights in the Software not explicitly granted herein, are reserved by Closetbox. If you are using the Services in any country within the European Union, the prohibitions set forth herein will not affect your rights under any legislation implementing the E.C. Council Directive on the Legal Protection of Computer Programs.

MONITORING AND ENFORCING TERMS OF SERVICES

CLOSETBOX has the right to:

a. Take any action with respect to any User Content that we deem necessary or appropriate in our sole discretion if we believe that such User Content violates the Terms of Use, including the Content Standards, infringes any intellectual property right or other right, threatens the personal safety of users of the Website and the public or could create liability for the Company.

b. Remove, screen, edit, modify or refuse to post any User Content for any or no reason in our sole discretion.

c. Disclose your identity to any third party who claims that material posted by you violates their rights, including their intellectual property rights or their right to privacy.

d. Take appropriate legal action, including without limitation, referral to law enforcement, for any illegal or unauthorized use of the Website.

e. Terminate your access to all or part of the Website for any or no reason, including without limitation, any violation of these Terms of Use. Without limiting the foregoing, we have the right to fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity of anyone posting any materials on or through the Website. YOU WAIVE AND HOLD HARMLESS THE COMPANY FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY CLOSETBOX DURING OR AS A RESULT OF ITS INVESTIGATIONS AND FROM ANY ACTIONS TAKEN AS A CONSEQUENCE OF INVESTIGATIONS BY EITHER CLOSETBOX OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.

However, we do not undertake to review all material before it is posted on the Website, and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted. These Terms of Use do not create any private right of action on the part of any third party or any reasonable expectation or promise that the Website will not contain any content that is prohibited by these Terms of Use. Accordingly, we assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications or content provided by any user or third party. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this paragraph.

PASSWORDS

In connection with Closetbox's provision of the Services, Closetbox will send to Customer's email address or Customer may create (as designated by Customer at the time an account is established), information such as user-IDs and/or passwords which will enable Customer to access the Services (the "Passwords"). Customer agrees to maintain the Passwords in strict confidence and not to provide the Passwords to any third party. Customer will notify Closetbox promptly if there is a loss or compromise of any Passwords and Customer will be solely responsible for all actions and fees incurred as a result of such incident resulting from the Customer's negligence or intentional misconduct. Any unauthorized use of the Passwords by Customer will constitute a material breach of this Agreement.

SUBMISSION OF IDEAS

Separate and apart from the User Content you provide, you can submit questions, comments, feedback, suggestions, ideas, plans, notes, drawings, original or creative materials or other information about CLOSETBOX, the Website and our products and services (collectively, the "Ideas"). Ideas, whether posted to the Website or provided to CLOSETBOX by email or otherwise are entirely voluntary, nonconfidential, gratuitous and non-committal.

You hereby irrevocably assign and transfer to CLOSETBOX all of your rights, title and interest, on a worldwide basis, including without limitation, all intellectual property rights and moral rights, in and to such Ideas. Accordingly, CLOSETBOX shall own exclusive rights, including all intellectual property rights, and shall be entitled to the unrestricted use and dissemination of Ideas for any purpose, commercial or otherwise, without acknowledgment or compensation to you. To the extent the preceding assignment and transfer is ineffective, you grant CLOSETBOX an exclusive, irrevocable, royalty-free, perpetual and fully sublicensable and transferable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, translate, distribute, publish, and create derivative works from any such Ideas submitted to CLOSETBOX by you.

CLOSETBOX will not be liable for any ideas for its business (including without limitation, product, or advertising ideas) and will not incur any liability as a result of any similarities that may appear in future CLOSETBOX operations. Do not send us Ideas if you expect to be paid or want to continue to own or claim rights in them. We may have already had the same or similar idea and we do not want disputes.

To the extent any “moral rights,” “ancillary rights,” or similar rights in or to the Ideas exist and are not exclusively owned by CLOSETBOX, you agree not to enforce any such rights as to us or our licensees, agents, representatives, and other authorized users, and you shall procure the same agreement not to enforce from any others who may possess such rights.

You hereby appoint us as your agent with full power to enter into and execute any document and/or do any act we may consider appropriate to confirm the grant of rights, consents, agreements, assignments and waivers set forth in these Terms of Use.
