1. Your Agreement. These Terms govern your use of the Website. Please read these Terms carefully as they impose legal obligations on you and us. By accessing and using our Website, you acknowledge and agree to be legally bound by these Terms. In addition, for certain activities on the Site that require you to be a Registered User, we may further confirm your consent by asking you to click an "I accept" button. If you do not agree with these Terms, please refrain from using our Site.
2. Obtaining a Password; Use of Your Password. Customers are allowed to create an account on the Website in order to move through the online checkout process faster, store multiple shipping addresses, view orders and take advantage of other helpful services that we offer. Online accounts are accessible only to Registered Users that have a username and password. If you are a Registered User and obtain a username and password, please keep in mind that we will treat anyone who uses your username and password as "you." We will provide this user with all of the rights and privileges that we provide to you, and we will hold you responsible for user activities associated with your username and password. We therefore recommend that you maintain your username and password in confidence, and that you refrain from disclosing this information to anyone who might "pretend" to be you with respect to your use of our Website. We also recommend that you notify us immediately if you suspect that someone is using your username and password in this manner.
4. Grant of Rights to Users. Based on your agreement to comply with these Terms, we grant you the right to access and use all publicly available and, if expressly authorized, password-protected areas of our Website, Website Content and Website Services in order to: (i) learn more about My Bob's and the products and services that we offer; (ii) provide information to us through our Website; (iii) purchase My Bob's products; (iv) download and print pages from our Website onto one (1) computer hard drive; and (v) access other information that we make available through our Website (collectively, the "General Permitted Purposes"). You acknowledge and agree that the Website, Website Content and Website Services are made available solely for your personal, non-commercial use, and that the General Permitted Purposes allow only personal, non-commercial use. Any other use of the Website, Website Content and Website Services is strictly prohibited.
5. My Bob's Ownership; Reservation of Rights. All information, software, artwork, trademarks, text, video, audio, pictures, logos, and other content on the Website or embodied in our products and services, including all associated intellectual property rights (collectively, the "Website Content"), is the property of My Bob's and its licensors, or is used under principles of fair use. My Bob's retains all rights with respect to the Website, Website Content and Website Services except those expressly granted to you in Section 4 (Grant of Rights to Users). The term "Website Content" expressly excludes Submitted Content.
6.1 Grant of Rights in Submitted Content. By providing Submitted Content, you authorize us to copy, modify, display, distribute, perform, use and otherwise exploit the Submitted Content in any manner, without compensation to you and for so long as we deem warranted (collectively, the "Use Rights"). In addition, you authorize us to grant any third party some or all of the Use Rights. By way of example, and not limitation, the Use Rights include the right for us to publish Submitted Content on our Website in whole or in part, and whether cropped, adopted, altered or otherwise manipulated, for as long as we choose.
6.2 Requisite Permission for Providing Submitted Content. By providing Submitted Content, you represent and warrant that you own such Submitted Content (including any copyright and other intellectual property rights therein), or that you have obtained sufficient authority and right in and to the Submitted Content in order to provide the Use Rights. For example, by emailing us a testimonial of your experience with our products along with a photo of that experience, you represent and warrant to us that you have obtained the necessary permission from anyone appearing in the photograph to grant us the Use Rights in the photograph.
6.3 Submitted Content Containing Personally Identifiable Information. If you provide Submitted Content to the Website, by way of e-mail or otherwise, we will treat such Submitted Content as non-confidential and non-proprietary to you. Submitted Content that you provide to us for posting on the Website or post directly on our Site may, once posted, be publicly available to anyone accessing our Website. Although we may review Submitted Content prior to using it, we make no representations or warranties regarding any Submitted Content or our review of such Submitted Content. In addition, any Personally Identifiable Information that is included in Submitted Content that you intend to have posted on our Site will be treated as public Submitted Content and is expressly excluded from the definition of "Personally Identifiable Information." For example, you may include your name, mailing address, and email address in a product review. This information will be publicly available, and will no longer qualify as Personally Identifiable Information. As such, please use discretion when including Personally Identifiable Information and other details in Submitted Content that you provide to us.
7. Code of Conduct; Revocation or Suspension of Use Privileges. By using our Website, you agree to comply with these Terms, and to follow our Code of Conduct, which is set out below. Under this Code of Conduct, you shall not:

• Infringe any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy. Electronic materials – such as music, videos, images and text in electronic form – can easily be copied, modified and sent over the internet.

• Transmit materials that contain any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots or other computer-programming routines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or Personally Identifiable Information.
• Use the Website to artificially generate traffic or page links to a website or for any other purpose not expressly allowed under these Terms.
• Use the Website in a manner that could disable, overburden or impair the Website or Website Services or interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of the Website and Website Services, such as through sending "spam."
• Use the Website to test or reverse engineer the Website in order to find limitations, vulnerabilities or to evade filtering capabilities.
• Seek to obtain access to any materials or information through "hacking", "data harvesting" or through other means we have not intentionally made available to you through the Website.
• Use the Website for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these Terms. For example, you will not use the Website to violate any law, statute or regulation (including, without limitation, those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination or false advertising).
