Privacy

We respect your privacy. Please read our Privacy Policy carefully because it describes, among other things, how we collect and use information obtained when you use our Website.

Ownership and Use of Website and Content

Our Website and, except as described below, all Content, is either our property or that of our affiliates, licensors, suppliers, operational service providers, advertisers, agencies or promotional partners (collectively, “Rihanna Entities”), and are legally protected, without limitation, under U.S. federal and state laws and regulations, as well as applicable foreign laws, regulations and treaties. To avoid any doubt, when the word “Content” is used it includes, but isn’t limited to, such things as software, code, design, text, images, photographs, illustrations, animations, audio, video and audio-visual material, art, graphic material, proprietary information, data, databases, service marks, trademarks, trade names, distinctive identification such as logos, the selection, sequence, “look and feel” and arrangement of items and all copyrightable or otherwise legally protectable elements of our Website.

You keep ownership to any and all Content that is yours and if you submit or provide Content to us, our Terms do not deprive you or any holder of your or their rights.  However, when you do submit or provide Content to us, unless we indicate otherwise, you are giving us and the Rihanna Entities an unconditional, irrevocable, transferable, royalty free worldwide license to use, display, reproduce, perform, adapt, translate, modify, create derivative works, publish, distribute, disseminate and/or broadcast that Content (“license”) and you are representing and warranting to us you have the right to give us and the Rihanna Entities such license. If you do not have the right to license your Content as set forth in these Terms (or if you are not sure), do not submit or provide us Content.

You may only use our Content for your own personal use and you have no right to transfer, assign or use the Content for any other purpose or allow or enable anyone else to do so. Personal use means nothing commercial or even charitable, whether or not money or other compensation or consideration is involved and whether or not it is for your benefit or for someone else. This also means you are not allowed to use, display, reproduce, perform, adapt, translate, modify, create derivative works, publish, distribute, disseminate and/or broadcast Content that is not yours without our express prior written consent. You may not alter, delete or conceal copyright or other notices, even if we let you download, display, print or share the Content with others. Unauthorized or prohibited use of Content may subject you to civil liability, criminal prosecution, or both under federal, state and local laws.  Except as expressly provided above, nothing contained herein shall be construed as conferring any license or right under any copyright or other intellectual property right.

Right to Terminate

In addition to any other rights and remedies we may have under our Terms, we have the right to: (a) refuse service, remove or edit content, discontinue, suspend or terminate your use of our Website and/or services at any time, in our sole discretion, including any time we determine, in our sole judgment, that you or your use of our Website may violate our Terms; and (b) use any technological, legal, operational or other means available to enforce our Terms.
