3. User Content
When you post User Content to the Site, or in a Product or Service, you authorize and direct ASGC to make such copies thereof as ASGC deems necessary in order to facilitate the posting and storage of the User Content on the Site, Product, and/or Service. By posting User Content to any part of the Site, or in a Product or Service, you automatically grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant to ASGC an irrevocable, perpetual, nonexclusive, transferable, fully paid worldwide license (with the right to sublicense) to use, edit (for grammar, clarity, or accuracy), copy, publicly perform, publicly display, reformat, translate, excerpt (in whole or in part), and distribute such User Content for any purpose, commercial, advertising, or otherwise, on or in connection with the Site, Product, Service, or the promotion thereof, to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, such User Content and to grant and authorize sublicenses of the foregoing. You may remove your User Content at any time. If you choose to remove your User Content, the license granted above will automatically expire; however, you acknowledge that ASGC may retain archived copies of your User Content. ASGC does not assert any ownership over your User Content; rather, as between us and you, subject to the rights granted to us in these Terms, you retain full ownership of all your User Content and any intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights associated with your User Content.
ASGC expects Users to respect the intellectual property rights of others. ASGC may remove material that appears in our sole discretion to infringe upon the intellectual property rights of others and will terminate the access rights of any repeat infringer. If you believe a work you own that is protected by a U.S. copyright has been posted without authorization, you may notify ASGC’s copyright agent and provide the following information:
a. A physical or electronic signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner;
b. Identification of the copyrighted work or works claimed to have been infringed;
c. A detailed description of the material you claim is infringing, together with information sufficient to enable us to locate it, including the URL where the infringing material appears;
d. Your name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
e. A statement by you that you believe in good faith that the copyrighted material identified is being used in a manner that is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
f. A statement by you that the above information is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright allegedly infringed.
