All right and title in and to SERVICE (including, but not limited to, any images, photographs, animation, video, audio, music, text and “applets” incorporated into SERVICE) is owned by LICENSOR or one or more of the THIRD-PARTY SUPPLIERS.
LICENSOR grants you a non-sublicensable, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use SERVICE. LICENSOR and the THIRD-PARTY SUPPLIERS expressly reserve all rights, title and interest (including, but not limited to, all intellectual property rights) in and to SERVICE that this TOS does not specifically grant to you.

You may not remove, alter, cover or deface any trademarks or notices on SERVICE. You may not share, distribute, rent, lease, sublicense, assign, transfer or sell SERVICE. The software, network services or other products other than SERVICE upon which SERVICE’s performance depends might be interrupted or discontinued at the discretion of the suppliers (software suppliers, service suppliers, or LICENSOR). LICENSOR and such suppliers do not warrant that SERVICE, network services or other products will continue to be available, or will operate without interruption or modification.
You acknowledge and agree that access to certain SERVICE features may require an internet connection for which you are solely responsible. Further, you are solely responsible for payment of any third party fees associated with your internet connection, including but not limited to internet service provider or airtime charges. Operation of SERVICE may be limited or restricted depending on the capabilities, bandwidth or technical limitations of your internet connection and service. The provision, quality and security of such internet connectivity are the sole responsibility of the third party providing such service.
