You nonetheless grant 42Floors and its affiliates and their licensees a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive and fully sub-licensable right and license (through multiple tiers) to use, reproduce, adapt, perform, display, publish, translate, prepare derivative works from, modify, distribute, sell, and take any other action with respect to all such Submitted Content (in whole or part), whether submitted in the past or in the future, and/or to incorporate it in other works in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed;

You further acknowledge and agree that 42Floors may preserve any such Submitted Content, whether submitted in the past or in the future, and may also disclose such Submitted Content in its sole discretion (including without limitation within other products offered by 42Floors and its affiliates).

You agree not to submit any Submitted Content to 42Floors unless you have received all necessary rights and authorizations, including from the photographer or videographer and/or copyright owner of any photographs or videos, to publish and advertise the property listing on your website or on 42Floors's website. Specifically, you will not submit a photograph if you received the photograph from a third party information provider under the terms of a license that does not allow posting of such photograph or video on the 42Floors website or your own website. You may only submit videos personally created by you or your direct employees. You may not upload or otherwise submit videos created or produced by third party video tour providers.

42Floors may, in its sole discretion but without any obligation to search for such, remove property listings that are alleged to have been submitted in violation of this Agreement. In addition, 42Floors may require additional evidence of compliance with this provision from “Customer(s)”, defined as the end user of the Service, who are alleged to have submitted property listings, Submitted Content or other information in violation of this Agreement. 42Floors will, in its sole discretion refuse service to, any Customer who repeatedly or knowingly violates this Agreement.

Additionally, you agree to allow submitted property listing(s) and Submitted Content, or any part therein, to be searched, displayed, accessed, downloaded, copied, and otherwise referred to by users of your website, the 42Floors website and other 42Floors partner or affiliate websites.

42Floors shall have the sole authority to choose the manner in which any property listing will be searched, displayed, accessed, downloaded, copied, and otherwise used on the 42Floors website and you shall have the right to modify the property listing in the exercise of your rights under this Agreement. You: (a) represent and warrant that all properties and associated information provided by you, including Submitted Content, will be accurate; (b) agree not to post a property listing on the 42Floors website under a name other than the individually named and validly licensed real estate agents that have been engaged by the property owner to market the property under the terms of a duly executed listing agreement with the owner; and (c) agree to administer the properties provided by you and maintain their accuracy at all times. 42Floors reserves, in a manner consistent with reasonable commercial business practices, the right to remove all or any part of the property listings posted on the 42Floors website. You are entirely responsible, and 42Floors accepts no responsibility, for the Submitted Content from you.

While 42Floors shall take all reasonable efforts for data backup and business resumption, you will be solely responsible for retaining back-up copies of all Submitted Content, including photographs, you provide to 42Floors. 42Floors may add digital watermarks to certain parts of your property listing, including photographs. We add these digital watermarks to protect against the copying or further distribution of your photographs without your permission. You agree that 42Floors may adjust portions of the information contained within the Service (e.g., within property listings). Any such adjustments will have no material impact on the meaning and interpretation of property listings, but will serve as a means of uniquely identifying the property listings as having been supplied to the Customer. Customer accepts that this is a legitimate and lawful security precaution on the part of 42Floors, and accepts further that in the event that any third party has access to property listings that can be identified as having a Customer's unique adjustments a prima facie breach of security and of these Terms of Use on the part of a Customer may be assumed by 42Floors.
