Media Rich Learning may, in its sole discretion, make changes to the Website and/or the Content, including but not limited to adding and/or removing video titles or other Content, adding closed captioning, and implementing new encoding rates.
All rights not expressly granted to Subscriber and its Users pursuant to the Agreement are reserved to Media Rich Learning, and all uses of the Content by Subscriber and its Users not expressly permitted hereunder are prohibited.
II. Permitted and Prohibited Uses.
b. Downloading of Content. Users may download, for noncommercial instructional use, including for lesson plans, copies of (i) images and (ii) videos and video clips designated on the website as downloadable. Copies must be deleted or erased after use or expiration of the Term, whichever occurs first. Such downloading shall be for individual User convenience only, and Users may not (1) systematically download any of the Content, (2) create distribution "libraries", or (3) transfer, sell, rent, display, or exhibit any of the Content to any third party outside of the Community (as defined in the Agreement).
c. Editing Content. Users may edit videos and video clips designated on the Website as editable, solely in connection with classroom or other school-related projects. Such videos and video clips, as edited by User, as well as any work containing User-edited videos or video clips, may not contain any libelous or unlawful materials or content or any commercial advertising materials, will not infringe upon any party's proprietary rights, including but not limited to statutory or common-law copyright, trademark and right of privacy, and may not violate any law, regulation or right of any kind whatsoever or give rise to any actionable claim or liability. Under no circumstances may a User convert the Content from digital to analog format, such as by recording a video clip onto a DVD. Violation of this Section II(c) may constitute copyright infringement.
User must maintain all copyright, trademark and proprietary notices included with, attached to or embedded all editable videos and video clips without modification, obstruction or deletion.
The Content may include certain ancillary educational materials, such as student activity sheets, blackline masters and teachers' guides ("Ancillary Materials"). User may modify, alter and revise the Ancillary Materials to meet specific instructional needs, provided that the following statement is prominently displayed on all such revised Ancillary Materials, in addition to any other proprietary notices, and with the understanding that Media Rich Learning or its content provider shall continue to own the Ancillary Materials: "Revised with the permission of Media Rich Learning. Media Rich Learning and its content providers are not responsible for the content or accuracy of the revision”.
d. Dissemination of Content. In the course of using any Content as permitted hereunder, Subscriber and its Users may not make the Content, or any part thereof, available to any party who is not a Subscriber or a User, except as permitted herein. Subscriber and its Users must ensure that the Content is at all times kept on a secure server, viewable only by Subscribers and/or its Users. If Subscriber wishes to use a third party to host the Content, Subscriber shall notify Media Rich Learning, and Media Rich Learning shall have the right to approve the use of such host in advance, in writing, and to approve the terms of agreement between such host and Subscriber. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Subscriber chooses to use a third party host, Media Rich Learning disclaims all liability to Subscriber in connection with such third party host, and Media Rich Learning shall have no responsibility to Subscriber to ensure that such third party host maintains its service. In addition, any Subscriber or User using the Local Host support option must use the Website, rather than a local directory, to search for and access the Content.
e. Prohibited Uses. Except as expressly set forth herein, neither Subscriber nor the Users may (i) copy, reproduce, alter, modify, transmit, perform, create derivative works of, publish, sub-license, distribute, or circulate the Website, the Content, or any portion thereof; (ii) disassemble, decompile, or reverse engineer the Website or any portion thereof, or use a robot, spider, or any similar device to copy or catalog the Content or any portion thereof; (iii) take any actions, whether intentional or unintentional, that may circumvent, disable, damage or impair the Website's or the Content's control or security systems, nor allow or assist a third party to do so; or (iv) use the Content in a manner that disparages the Website, the Content or Media Rich Learning or its content providers, or in any manner that Media Rich Learning may, in its sole discretion, deem inappropriate.
Subscriber and the Users acknowledge and agree that the Website and the Content possess a special, unique and extraordinary character that makes difficult the assessment of the monetary damages that would be sustained as a result of unauthorized use, and that unauthorized use may cause immediate and irreparable damage to Media Rich Learning for which Media Rich Learning would not have an adequate remedy at law. Therefore, Subscriber agrees that, in the event of such unauthorized use, in addition to such other legal and equitable rights and remedies as may be available to Media Rich Learning, Media Rich Learning shall be entitled to seek injunctive and other equitable relief without the necessity of proving damages or furnishing a bond or other security.
As between Subscriber, the Users, and Media Rich Learning, the Website and the Content are the property of Media Rich Learning, and are protected by United States and international copyright and trademark law. By using the Website and the Content, even as permitted hereunder, neither Subscriber nor any of its Users gain any ownership interest in the Website or the Content.

Subscriber and its Users must keep all Log-In Information strictly confidential, and all Log-In Information may be used only by the assigned User(s). Subscriber and its Users are responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of all Log-In Information, and for preventing access to the Website and/or the Content by unauthorized persons using a User's Log-In Information. Unauthorized
access to or use of the Website and/or the Content by someone using a User's Log-In information may be attributed to such User.

X. No Warranties, Limitation of Liability.
To the extent permitted by law, Subscriber and its Users release and waive all claims against Media Rich LLC, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, agents or content providers, and the directors, trustees, officers, shareholders, partners, employees, agents and representatives of each of the foregoing, from any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses arising out of User's use of the Website and the Content. California residents waive any rights they may have under Sec.1542 of the California Civil Code, which reads: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
