2. OWNERSHIP OF CONTENT
Except for User Content (defined below), all of the content on our Platform – including text, software, scripts, code, designs, graphics, photos, sounds, music, videos, applications, interactive features, articles, news stories, sketches, animations, stickers, general artwork and other content (“Content”) – is owned by SKINS or others we license Content from, and is protected by copyright, trademark, patent and other laws. SKINS reserves all rights not expressly described in these Terms.

You do not acquire any ownership rights in the Content (including any trademarks or other intellectual property included in the Content), and all such Content is intended for personal, non-commercial use. SKINS reserves the right to monitor your use and to alter or revoke this license or your access to the Content at any time and for any reason. SKINS reserves the right to take down any Content in violation of these terms or SKINS’s intellectual property rights.

3. POSTING CONTENT ON THE PLATFORM
User Content License. Some parts of the Platform may allow you to post photos, videos, comments, and other content, which we refer to as “User Content.” SKINS is not responsible for User Content others post to the Platform.

  • You represent that you have the right to post your User Content, and you grant SKINS a non-exclusive, perpetual, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any of the User Content that you post on or in connection with the Platform, including the likeness of any person that appears in the User Content, or any of the concepts or ideas contained in the User Content, for any purpose, including commercial use, which includes the right to translate, display, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, sublicense, distribute and assign these rights. SKINS may, in its sole discretion, remove any User Content at any time.
  • You understand that deleted User Content may persist in SKINS’s systems and on the Platform to the extent your User Content has been publicly posted or shared with others who have not deleted it, unless you or the relevant individual request deletion or blocking of personal data in accordance with applicable law.

LICENSE TO USE COMMENTS, FEEDBACK AND IDEAS. You understand that any comments, feedback, or ideas you send us are provided on a non-confidential basis and you grant to SKINS a perpetual, worldwide license to use all comments, feedback and ideas you may share with us, without notice, compensation or acknowledgement to you, for any purposes whatsoever, including, but not limited to, developing, manufacturing and marketing products and services and creating, modifying or improving products and services.

If you have an issue or beef with us, let us know. We want to ensure that your experiences are positive and that you get the best out of us.

Right to Assign, No Waivers, Severability

  • SKINS may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without notice to you, unless notice to you is required by applicable law, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms.
  • SKINS’s failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of these Terms is not a waiver of any of these Terms or SKINS’s rights. Users should always assume these Terms apply.
  • If any provision in these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of these Terms shall continue to be enforceable.
