Terms and FAQs for users who access alliedmedia.com.
Update history: Last updated by the Allied Media Legal Team on 14 May 2018
These terms and any terms referenced herein form the legal agreement between you and Allied Media Incorporated (collectively, with its subsidiaries and affiliates, Allied Media), that governs your use and access to www.alliedmedia.com, www.baar.ai, and any other website operated by Allied Media (collectively, the Allied Media Websites are the “Site”). By accessing, browsing or using the Site you agree to be bound by these terms (the “Terms” or “Site Terms”). If you do not agree to the Terms, you must not use, access, or browse the Site.
You may also be able to access interactive and informational portions of the Site, like the community or support site, that require you to register with www.alliedmedia.com in order to view or fully utilize them (the “User Sites”). Those portions of the Site may require additional terms, which will be displayed to you when you register (the “User Site Terms”).
If you want to give one of the Allied Media products a try, you should contact the sales team at email@example.com. Allied Media products and services are also subject to additional terms.
If the User Site Terms or trial terms conflict with these Terms, the User Site Terms or the trial terms will apply.
We may modify these Terms at any time so be sure to check back regularly. By continuing to use or log in to a Site after these Terms have changed, you indicate your agreement to the revised Terms. If you do not agree to the changes, you should stop using or logging in to the Sites.
Also, if you do not comply with these Terms, and we don’t take action right away, we maintain our rights to taking action in the future.

3. Ownership of Content
Our goal is to provide you with broad, rich, and diverse content on the Site. We may publish materials that are owned by Allied Media, its subsidiaries and affiliates, or Allied Media licensors, partners, and so forth. Everything we publish on the Site is protected by copyright laws and considered the intellectual property of the respective owners. If you use any materials published on the Site, you may do so, but only for your own internal non-commercial purposes, so long as all trademark(s), copyright(s) and other proprietary notices are intact and you do not edit the materials.
Allied Media reserves any and all rights or permissions not expressly granted to you in these Terms.
4. Products and Services
Because this Site is international, certain products, services or portions of the Site may not be available in your country. Please contact your local sales representative for availability information.

5. Content Moderation
Some parts of the Site may allow you to post or read content posted by other users. You can only post content if you own all the rights to that content, or if another rights holder has given you permission. While Allied Media does not generally edit or monitor the content posted by our users, we require that all users follow the simple rules that are listed below. If you don’t follow the guidelines, we may remove the content and/or limit or eliminate your access to the Site. We believe that these rules make everyone’s experience on the Site better—the “Technology Golden Rule,” if you will.
• Be honest.
• Act like the professional you are and be respectful of others.
• Share information wisely and remember that all posts could be permanent.
• Keep the information relevant to the discussions and free of advertising or solicitations.
• Only post things that you are lawfully able to post. These means don’t post anything that you are prohibited from sharing, you don’t have the necessary rights to post or anything that is harmful or disparaging to a third party (other users included)!
We are not responsible for and do not endorse, content posted by any other person. Accordingly, we may not be held liable, directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage caused to you in connection with any content posted by another member.
You do not transfer ownership of your content simply by posting it. However, by posting content, you grant us, our agents, licensees, and assigns an irrevocable, perpetual (non-exclusive) right and permission to reproduce, encode, store, copy, transmit, publish, post, broadcast, display, publicly perform, adapt, modify, create derivative works of, exhibit, and otherwise use your content. Without those rights, we couldn’t offer many of our services and products. Please note that this license continues even if you stop using our Sites.
You agree to indemnify, release, and hold us harmless from any all liability, claims, actions, loss, harm, damage, injury, cost or expense arising out of any content you post.
We love hearing from you, but please keep in mind that anything you submit to us is considered non-confidential. Feedback related to Allied Media and/or our products and services is considered non-confidential and the property of Allied Media. We will be entitled to use the feedback free of any restrictions and may disseminate it in any form.
7. Third Party Links
The Site may contain hyperlinks to third-party websites. While we will try to make it clear when a hyperlink is not one of ours, it is important that you realize that Allied Media makes no representations or warranties regarding these third-party sites or any content that may be linked to through a third party hyperlink.
Please keep in mind that a link to a third-party website doesn’t mean that we control or endorse those websites or any goods or services sold on those websites. Similarly, the Sites may contain advertisements from third-parties. We do not control or endorse any products being advertised.
(Pro tip: if you “hover” over a hyperlink with your mouse, the actual web address that you will be redirected to will display at the bottom of your browser).
We generally publish everything on the Site in English, but we try to accommodate our visitors and customers from around the globe with translations where we can. These translations may be done by computer (we love technology) but may not be reviewed with the same vigor as our other content is, so we cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of these translations.
