You warrant that any such contribution does comply with those standards, and you will be liable to us and indemnify us for any breach of that warranty. If you are a consumer user, this means you will be responsible for any loss or damage we suffer as a result of your breach of warranty.
Any comments, suggestions, ideas, graphics, or other information and content (collectively "Content") you upload to our Site will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary. You retain all of your ownership rights in your Content, but you hereby grant to Suntory an irrevocable worldwide royalty-free perpetual licence (with the right to grant third party sub-licences) to store, use, copy, transmit, distribute, publish, edit, adapt and otherwise exploit your Content throughout the world by any and all means we Suntory shall deem fit. You further irrevocably waive, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in our favour all so-called 'moral rights' (including the right to be identified as the author of any Content or to object to any derogatory treatment of any Content which is protected by copyright) to which you may be entitled in order to permit us to exercise the licence you grant to us to the fullest extent. Suntory will not have any obligation to use or evaluate any information received from you, and Suntory will not have to pay you or anyone else for using any Content that you may upload to or post on the Site.

ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY
You may use our Site only for lawful purposes. You may not use our Site: in any way that breaches any applicable local, national or international law or regulation; in any way that is unlawful or fraudulent, or has any unlawful or fraudulent purpose or effect; for the purpose of harming or attempting to harm minors in any way; to send, knowingly receive, upload, download, use or re-use any material which does not comply with our content standards; to transmit, or procure the sending of, any unsolicited or unauthorised advertising or promotional material or any other form of similar solicitation (spam); or to knowingly transmit any data, send or upload any material that contains viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time-bombs, keystroke loggers, spyware, adware or any other harmful programs or similar computer code designed to adversely affect the operation of any computer software or hardware.
We may from time to time provide interactive services on our Site, including, without limitation: chat rooms and bulletin boards ("interactive services"). Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical). We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our Site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our Site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our standards as set out in these Terms & Conditions, whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of any interactive services offered by us by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
The following content standards apply to any and all Content which you contribute to our Site and to any interactive services associated with it ("contributions"). You must comply with the spirit and the letter of the following standards. The standards apply to each part of any contribution as well as to its whole.
Contributions must: be accurate (where they state facts) and complete; be genuinely held (where they state opinions); comply with applicable law in the United Kingdom and in any country from which they are posted; not: (a) contain any material which is defamatory of any person; (b) contain any material which is obscene, offensive, hateful or inflammatory; (c) promote sexually explicit material; (d) promote violence; (e) promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age; (f) infringe any copyright, database right or trade mark of any other person; (g) be likely to deceive any person; (h) be made in breach of any legal duty owed to a third party, such as a contractual duty or a duty of confidence; (i) promote any illegal activity; (j) be threatening, abuse or invade another’s privacy, or cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety; (k) be likely to harass, upset, embarrass, alarm or annoy any other person; (l) be used to impersonate any person, or to misrepresent your identity or affiliation with any person; (m) give the impression that they emanate from us, if this is not the case; (n) advocate, promote or assist any unlawful act such as (by way of example only) copyright infringement or computer misuse.
We will determine, in our discretion, whether there has been a breach of this acceptable use policy through your use of our Site. When a breach of this policy has occurred, we may take such action as we deem appropriate.
Failure to comply with this acceptable use policy constitutes a material breach of the Terms & Conditions upon which you are permitted to use our Site, and may result in our taking all or any of the following actions: immediate, temporary or permanent withdrawal of your right to use our Site; immediate, temporary or permanent removal of any posting or material uploaded by you to our Site; issue of a warning to you; legal proceedings against you for reimbursement of all costs on an indemnity basis (including, but not limited to, reasonable administrative and legal costs) resulting from the breach; further legal action against you; and/or disclosure of such information to law enforcement authorities as we reasonably feel is necessary.
