As clarified in the following section, you retain your ownership rights in your User Status Submissions. You understand that whether or not such User Status Submissions are published, Wizzle does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any submissions.
B. You shall be solely responsible for your own User Status Submissions and the consequences of posting or publishing them. Because Wizzle is only acting as a repository of data, user submitted statuses do not necessarily represent the views or opinions of Wizzle, and Wizzle makes no guarantees as to the validity, accuracy or legal status of any status. In connection with User Status Submissions, you affirm, represent, and/or warrant that: (i) you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorize Wizzle to use all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to any and all User Status Submissions to enable inclusion and use of the User Status Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service; and (ii) you have the written consent, release, and/or permission of each and every identifiable individual person in the User Status Submission to use the name or likeness of each and every such identifiable individual person to enable inclusion and use of the User Status Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service. To be clear: you retain all of your ownership rights in your User Status Submissions, but you have to have the rights in the first place. However, by submitting the User Status Submissions to Wizzle, you hereby grant Wizzle a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the User Status Submissions in connection with the Wizzle Service and business (and its successor's), including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Wizzle Service (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels.

The foregoing license granted by you terminates once you remove or delete a User Status Submission from the Wizzle Service.
C. In connection with User Status Submissions, you further agree that you will not: (i) submit material that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner to post the material and to grant Wizzle all of the license rights granted herein; (ii) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage Wizzle or any third party; (iii) submit material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate; (iv) post advertisements or solicitations of business; (v) impersonate another person; (vi) send or store material containing software viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other harmful computer code, files, scripts, agents or programs; (vii) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Service or the data contained therein; or (viii) attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Service or its related systems or networks.

Wizzle does not endorse any User Status Submission or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and Wizzle expressly disclaims any and all liability in connection with User Status Submissions.

An annoying person is anyone who is (capriciously or not) determined to be annoying by authorized Wizzle employees, agents, subagents, superagents or superheros. Wizzle also reserves the right to decide whether content or a User Status Submission is appropriate and complies with these Terms of Service for violations other than copyright infringement and violations of intellectual property law, such as, but not limited to excessive length or limited interest. Wizzle may remove such User Status Submissions and/or terminate a User's access for uploading such material in violation of these Terms of Service at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion.
E. You understand that when using the Wizzle Service you will be exposed to User Status Submissions from a variety of sources, and that Wizzle is not responsible for the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of or relating to such User Status Submissions, and that such User Status Submissions are not the responsibility of Wizzle.
