The Services may include advertisements, which may be targeted to Content or information on the Services, queries made through the Services, or other information.

7. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS
GLADEO respects the intellectual property of others and asks users to do the same. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or your intellectual property rights have otherwise been violated, please notify us per above.
Moreover, GLADEO may take any action it deems appropriate (in its sole and absolute discretion), including, without limitation, removing, terminating or suspending any Content provided by you or any third party, if GLADEO believes for any reason that you or any third party possesses insufficient rights in Content to permit full use or access through the Sites.

Any copying, downloading, burning or distribution capabilities with respect to Content shall not constitute a grant or waiver of any rights of the copyright owners of any Content. The availability of any Content does not transfer to you any commercial or promotional use rights in Content.

You or a third party licensor, as appropriate, retain all patent, trademark and copyright to any Content you submit, post or display on or through the Services, and you are responsible for protecting those rights, as appropriate. By submitting, posting or displaying Content (text, video or content in any form) on or through the Services, you grant GLADEO a worldwide, perpetual, non-exclusive, irrevocable, transferable, assignable, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to create derivatives of and to use, store, edit, copy, reproduce, display, archive, reproduce , reprint,  process, modify, such Content on the Services for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting the Services or any other format or channel.

You agree that this license includes the right for GLADEO to make such Content available to other companies, organizations or individuals who partner with GLADEO for the syndication, broadcast, distribution or publication of such Content on other media and services, subject to these Terms of Use for such Content use.
Such additional uses by GLADEO, or other companies, organizations or individuals who partner with GLADEO, may be made with no compensation paid to you with respect to Content that you submit, post, transmit or otherwise make available through the Services.
You are responsible for your use of the Services, for any Content you provide, and for any consequences thereof, including the use of your Content by other users and third party partners.

20. MISCELLANEOUS
No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of the Terms of Use and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind GLADEO in any respect whatsoever.

You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Services or the Terms of Use must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. The section titles in this Terms of Use are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. You agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Terms of Use, there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to this Terms of Use. GLADEO may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms of Use, by email or postings on the Services.

Amendment to GLADEO Terms of Use for Government Entities
GLADEO acknowledges that as a United States government entity (“Government Entity”), you are required, when entering into agreements with other parties, to follow applicable federal laws and regulations, including those related to ethical standards, limitations on indemnification, fiscal law constraints, advertising and endorsements, freedom of information, governing law, and dispute resolution forum and processes (collectively, “Government Considerations”). Government Entity wishes to use GLADEO’s Services pursuant to the Terms of Use as amended hereto, and GLADEO is willing to allow such use as set forth herein.
1. Terms of Use.
In using the Service, Government Entity agrees to abide by the Terms of Use (hereby incorporated by this reference) as amended by this Amendment.  For clarity, this Amendment only governs Government Entity’s use of the Service, and not any other features or functionality on the service.
2. Conflicts, Use of Terms.
In the event of conflict between the terms and conditions of the Terms of Use, and the terms and conditions of this Amendment, the terms and conditions of this Amendment will control. Unless otherwise expressly defined in this Amendment, all capitalized terms herein will have the meanings ascribed to them in the Terms of Use.
3. Amendments.
(a) Governing Law. The “Governing Law and Jurisdiction” section is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
“Governing Law and Jurisdiction. These Terms of Use will be governed, interpreted and enforced in accordance with the laws of the United States of America. In the absence of federal law, the laws of the state of California will apply.”
(b) Disputes. The section governing how and where disputes related to the Terms of Use are handled is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
“Disputes. You and GLADEO will endeavor to resolve any disputes in an amicable fashion. The liability of Government Entity and its obligations to Company resulting from any breach by Government Entity of any of the provisions of this Terms of Use or any claim arising from this Terms of Use will be determined under the Contract Disputes Act, the Federal Tort Claims Act, the Tucker Act, or any other applicable law.”
(c) Indemnity. The indemnity section in the Terms of Use is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
“Disclaimer. You agree that your account on the GLADEO Service will serve as an additional distribution channel for government information, but in no event will serve or be represented as the official site or homepage for Government Entity.”
(d) Authority. The following section is added to the Terms of Use:
“Additional Representations; Authority. Government Entity hereby represents and warrants that the individual agreeing to the Terms of Use is duly qualified and has the appropriate authority to agree to the Terms of Use and this Amendment on behalf of Government Entity and Government Entity has determined that entering into the Terms of Use and this Amendment does not constitute a federal government acquisition and is not subject to any federal procurement regulation.”
(e) Changes to Terms of Use. The following section is added to the Terms of Use:
