Except for allowing you to use the Site and the affiliated Sites for your personal use as set forth in the paragraph above, when you use the Site or the affiliated Sites, you are not receiving a license or any other rights from us, including intellectual property or other proprietary rights of Gitzo or other companies with which we are affiliated. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS TO THE SERVICES OR ANY OTHER GITZO PROPERTY EXCEPT AS WE INDICATE IN THESE TERMS.
Your Postings to this Site
On some parts of our Site, you can post or tell us your comments on a given topic, or start a new topic for others to respond to. If you post anything, you guarantee to us that:
You have legal rights to post your material and it will not violate any law or the rights of any person; and
You are at least 18 years old if you are in a mature content area.
Except as set forth under "Community Content" below, all information and materials of any kind, including graphics, text or otherwise posted by someone on our Site ("Member Content") are subject to the following terms:
1. By posting Member Content you give us the royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide right to:
allow other people to use the Member Content as described in these Terms; and to use, distribute, display and create derivative works from this Member Content, in any and all media, in any manner, in whole or in part, without any restriction or responsibilities to you;
2. You understand that we are not responsible for the truth, completeness, objectivity or usefulness of any Member Content, nor do we endorse any Member Content;
3. We do not verify the identity of people using our Site, and you assume the risk of believing or not believing any Member Content you read;
4. We do not screen, monitor, edit or review Member Content. We do have the right to monitor or remove any Member Content at any time and without notice if we believe it will improve our Site.
Some areas of the Site deserve special treatment because they contain information that most people would expect to be private. These sections include e-mail communications, instant message communications, homepages that are not marked "public," and personal photo albums that are not marked "public" ("Community Content"). Please note: marking a homepage or photo album "public" means that all visitors to our Site will be able to see the homepage or photo album and that the content will be licensed to us as "Member Content" under the terms explained above.
In general, we will not monitor, edit or disclose Community Content. We will only do so when we have reason to believe that disclosing it is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who is causing you injury, or is injuring or interfering with the Services or Gitzo's rights, or with other visitors to the Site. We may also reveal Community Content when we are required by the law, which includes responding to demands by law enforcement, civil and administrative authorities, usually in the form of a subpoena for information. We may also disclose the Community Content to identify or fix technical problems or respond to complaints about the Services.
Conduct of Members and Visitors
We believe that all members and visitors benefit from basic rules regarding conduct while using the Services so that everyone feels free to share opinions and ideas. The free flow of ideas is jeopardized when a few individuals act irresponsibly. To help everyone have a positive experience, we ask-and you agree-to follow the following basic rules of conduct when using the Gitzo Sites:
You will follow these Terms and all applicable laws;
You will never give your password to anyone (no Gitzo employee will ask for it) and you will not provide your billing or credit information except to make a purchase;
You will not harass, threaten or abuse other people when using the Site in any manner;
You will not interfere with others' use of the Site, including by interrupting other users' sessions, scrolling down (automatically or manually) to make it difficult for them, or otherwise act in a way that negatively affects other users' enjoyment of the Services;
You will not post any Member Content that is obscene or may be hateful or offensive on racial, ethnic, sexual or any other grounds; is harmful, vulgar or distasteful; or is defamatory, libelous, or invades another person's privacy or proprietary rights;
You will not attempt to harvest any screen names or e-mail addresses for any commercial use;
You will not collect or store personal information about any other individual on the Site, or otherwise stalk, repeatedly contact or harass another user;
You will not impersonate any other person or misrepresent a relationship with any person or entity, including misrepresenting a relationship with Gitzo; similarly, you will not adopt a false identity if the purpose of doing so is to deceive or defraud another;
You will not use the Services to harm minors in any way, or encourage interactions with minors of a sexual nature;

You will not post any Member Content that contains any viruses, cancel bots, Trojan horses, harmful code, or other computer software or program designed to interrupt the Services we provide, users' ability to enjoy the Services, or the proper functioning of any software, hardware or equipment or materials used in connection with the Services;
You will not send any bulk unsolicited advertising, promotional information, e-mail or other solicitation (including without limitation junk mail, "spam," chain letters or pyramid schemes of any sort) to any person through the use of the Services, except in areas that specifically authorize you to do so (auction forums, for instance);
If you violate any of the guidelines set forth above, or any other aspect of these Terms, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your rights to use the Services without giving you any notice.
Disclosure of Your Identity
From time to time we receive requests to disclose the identities of our users. We do not disclose the identities of ours users unless we are legally required to do so.
If a governmental agency (for example, the Securities and Exchange Commission, law enforcement agencies, Attorneys' offices or similar governmental agencies) sends us a subpoena, we will comply with it. If we receive a subpoena by a third party that is not a governmental agency (for example, a subpoena in connection with civil litigation), we will contact the user whose identity has been requested using the contact information the user provided during the registration process. We will wait 10 days after notifying the user before complying with the subpoena, unless the subpoena requires us to disclose this information before then. If we cannot wait 10 days because of the deadline in the subpoena, we will let the user know the deadline included in the subpoena when we provide notice that we received it.
You understand that you are personally responsible for your behavior while on the Site and the Gitzo Sites, and agree to indemnify and hold Gitzo and its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, and their officers, directors, employees and agents harmless from and against any loss, damage, liability, cost or expense of any kind (including attorneys' fees and costs) that we may incur in connection with a third party claim or otherwise, in relation to your use of the Services, access to the Site or the affiliated Sites, your violation of either these Terms or the rights of any third party and/or in connection with the Rebates, prizes, disclosure of membership passwords and any other matter in connection with your participation in the Rebates Program.
You agree to pay any and all taxes, duties and/or governmental charges such as income, sales, use, excise, value added, goods and services, and consumption taxes related to your participation in the Rebates Program as may be applicable.
