In such cases, a User may be required to expressly consent to additional terms set forth in applicable Guidelines — for instance, a User might be obligated to check a box or click on a button marked “I agree.” This type of agreement is known as a “click-through” agreement. If any of the terms of a click-through agreement are different than the terms of the Terms and Conditions of Use, the terms of the click-through agreement will supplement or amend the Terms and Conditions of Use, but only with respect to the matters governed by the click-through agreement.

MODIFICATION OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE

Teambikechallenge and affiliates reserves the right, at its discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of the Terms and Conditions of Use or any affiliated Guidelines at any time. By a User’s consent to the Agreement, he/she obligates himself/herself to periodically check the Agreement and all Guidelines and Policies for any changes. A User’s continued use of the Services after the posting of any modifications or changes to the Terms and Conditions of Use or any affiliated Guidelines or Policies constitutes his/her binding acceptance of such changes. Please note that additional and/or different conditions and terms of use may apply to services or products provided through one or more of teambikechallenge and affiliates’ partners, advertisers or business associates, and a User should refer to those before accessing, purchasing, using or subscribing to such services or products.

OWNERSHIP AND PROPRIETARY RIGHTS

The Services are owned and operated by teambikechallenge and affiliates. The teambikechallenge and affiliates software, content, visual interfaces, information, graphics, design, compilation, computer code, online platform, products, software, and services, including but not limited to the mobile device applications and all other elements of the Services (collectively, the “Materials”) are protected by United States copyright, trade dress, patent and trademark laws, international laws and conventions, and all other relevant intellectual property and proprietary rights and applicable laws. All materials and components contained in the Services are the property of teambikechallenge and affiliates or its subsidiaries or affiliated companies and/or third-party licensors. All trademarks, service marks and trade names displayed on the Services are proprietary to teambikechallenge and affiliates or its affiliates and/or third-party licensors.

ACCOUNT INFORMATION

The Services are not available to persons under the age of 13 or to any Users suspended or removed from the Services by teambikechallenge and affiliates.

Users also agree that they will ensure that this information is kept accurate and up to date at all times.

PASSWORD

When a User registers as a member and obtains an account, he/she will be asked to provide a password. Because a User will be responsible for all activities that generate from his/her account, and one can only access his/ her account upon the transmission of the associated password, a User should keep that password strictly confidential at all times. A USER MUST NOTIFY TEAMBIKECHALLENGE AND AFFILIATES IMMEDIATELY OF ANY UNAUTHORIZED USE OF HIS/HER PASSWORD OR IF HE/SHE BELIEVES THAT PASSWORD IS NO LONGER CONFIDENTIAL. Teambikechallenge and affiliates reserves the right to suspend a User’s account and/or require that such User alter his/her password if we believe for any reason that such User’s password is no longer secure. A USER MAY NOT SHARE HIS/HER TEAMBIKECHALLENGE AND AFFILIATES ACCOUNT PASSWORD WITH ANY OTHER PERSON FOR ANY REASON.

PAYMENT TERMS AND CANCELLATIONS

A User agrees to pay any fees due for and incurred by their use of those select Services that require payment on the part of Users (“Paid Services”). Teambikechallenge and affiliates will administer and apply User payments received for Paid Services via the online billing mechanisms of its affiliated websites in a timely and commercially reasonable manner. Further, teambikechallenge and affiliates reserve the right to terminate a User’s access to a Paid Service on account of that User’s nonpayment of associated charges. If a User wants to discontinue his/her utilization of a Paid Service, then he/she may cancel that Paid Service in accord with the cancellation procedures established in the Guidelines pertinent to that Paid Service.

Certain individuals or vendors (collectively “third party vendors”) with whom teambikechallenge and affiliates maintains a commercial relationship may market their own promotions and services on (or through) teambikechallenge.com. To participate in some of those promotions or access some of those services, a User may be required to make payment for the specific service or promotion to the third party vendor that markets that specific service or promotion.

In addition, User contacts or business dealings with, or participation in the promotions of individuals or merchants found on or linked by any third-party web content exist solely and operate independently as between a User and such individuals or merchants. A User therefore agrees that teambikechallenge and affiliates shall not be responsible for or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings or as the result of the placement of, or linkage to such third-party web content on teambikechallenge and affiliates’ web properties.

USER CONTENT

USER ACCOUNTS AND USER CONTENT

A User is responsible for all User Content posted under his/her account on teambikechallenge and affiliates.com, and for adjusting those account settings, specifically User Privacy Settings, that permit him/her to display User Content on the site.

Posting User Content via the Internet inherently poses the risk of unintended disclosure and access by third parties to said User Content. Teambikechallenge and affiliates will make reasonable efforts to prevent User Content from disclosure that exceeds the account settings selected by a User, but teambikechallenge and affiliates cannot guarantee that User account settings will completely protect against some User Content from being viewed or accessed by unintended third parties, and teambikechallenge and affiliates will not be liable for such chance disclosures.

Upon a User’s termination of his/her account, he/she may request that teambikechallenge and affiliates completely “purge” the User account, including the deletion of any and all User Content previously submitted by that User. Teambikechallenge and affiliates will in turn undertake reasonable efforts to ensure that a User Account and teambikechallenge and affiliates is completely purged of User Content, subject to the limitation that teambikechallenge and affiliates may not be able to fully delete all User Content, specifically any User Content posted in teambikechallenge and affiliates forums, community groups on other User pages. Teambikechallenge and affiliates therefore directs that a User exercise good judgment when he/she posts UserContent to teambikechallenge and affiliates forums, community groups or on other User pages, and refrain from posting sensitive material.

In addition, teambikechallenge and affiliates cannot wholly purge health index-related User Content upon the deletion of a User Account. We will, however, make that information anonymous upon the termination of a User account.

OWNERSHIP RIGHTS IN USER CONTENT

When a User transmits or otherwise supplies User Content to teambikechallenge and affiliates, or otherwise makes User Content available on or through teambikechallenge and affiliates.com, he/she expressly grants teambikechallenge and affiliates a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive and fully sub-licensable right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, display, translate or distribute such User Content for any purpose, commercial, advertising or otherwise, on or in connection with teambikechallenge and affiliates or the promotion thereof.

In addition, teambikechallenge and affiliates obtains a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive and fully sub-licensable right and license to create derivative works from User Content, display User Content, in whole or in part, and/or to incorporate User Content in other works in any form, media or technology, and a User agrees that any “moral rights” in that User Content have been waived. Moreover, when a User posts User Content to teambikechallenge and affiliates.com, he/she authorizes and directs teambikechallenge and affiliates to make such copies thereof as it deems necessary in order to facilitate the posting and storage of the User Content.

The rights held by teambikechallenge and affiliates relative to User Content, as delineated above, are, however, subject to the limitation that should teambikechallenge and affiliates seek to make use of certain User Content — namely a User’s image — for explicit commercial or advertising purposes, teambikechallenge and affiliates will make a reasonable effort to secure consent from that User for that specific purpose.

Further, teambikechallenge and affiliates does not assert any real ownership over User Content. Rather, subject to the rights granted to teambikechallenge and affiliates in these Terms and Conditions of Use, a User retains full ownership of any and all of his/her User Content and any intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights associated with said User Content.
