6. USER CONTENT

TagMyDoc allows you to interact with other Users and to upload, exchange, share and submit data and content to the platform and to other Users (any such content or data a User submits, posts, displays, publishes, uploads or otherwise makes available on TagMyDoc is collectively referred to as the “User Content”).

By submitting User Content to TagMyDoc, you expressly grant, and you represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to grant, to Knova Web a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, worldwide and sublicensable right and license to use, reproduce, adapt, display, store and distribute such User Content for the sole purpose of allowing you to use TagMyDoc as provided herein. You also hereby grant each User a non-exclusive license to access your User Content through TagMyDoc, and to use, reproduce and distribute such User Content as permitted through the functionalities of TagMyDoc and in accordance with these Terms of Use.

You are solely responsible for any User Content that you decide to upload or share on TagMyDoc and for any interaction or communication that you may have with other Users. You may not, and by using TagMyDoc and the Website you agree not to, post or submit User Content:

  1. that violates third-party rights of any kind, including without limitation any rights of privacy and intellectual property rights;

Knova Web does not represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of User Content posted or submitted by other Users, and you understand and agree that you may be exposed to User Content that is inaccurate, objectionable or inappropriate. Knova Web takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any such User Content or any use made thereof by others Users, or for any interactions that you may have with other Users on or through TagMyDoc. TagMyDoc is a passive conduit for the secure and encrypted communication of User Content and Knova Web has no access to such User Content. We therefore encourage you to notify us should you become aware of any violation of these Terms of Use by any other User. If we are notified or become aware of any such violation by a User, we may investigate the matter further and we reserve our right, but without being obligated, to expel a User and prevent his/her further access to TagMyDoc.

The Website and TagMyDoc may contain certain third-party content, refer to third-party products or services or link to independent third-party websites (collectively, “Third-Party Content”).

Once you choose to link to a third-party’s website from our Website or from TagMyDoc, these Terms of Use will then cease to apply. You should read carefully the terms of use and privacy statements of such third-party websites before using them. Your use of Third-Party Content is made at your own risk and you expressly relieve Knova Web from any such use and you expressly acknowledge that Knova Web is not liable for any claim or damage arising from, connected with, or relating to such uses or dealings.
