The Site may provide you the opportunity to participate and post content publicly in forums, through interactive features and through other communication functionality ("Community Forums"). You may choose, through such features or otherwise, to submit or post photographs, videos, questions, comments, suggestions or other content (collectively, "User Content").
A. Responsibility for User Content. You understand that you are solely responsible for your User Content, however submitted. Orion does not control the User Content made available via the Site and therefore does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of User Content
If you include personally identifiable information in your User Content, you may receive unsolicited messages from third parties. Further, Orion cannot ensure the security of any information you post on publicly available areas of the Site. You understand that by using the Site, you may be exposed to content or other User Content that are offensive or objectionable.
We have no obligation to monitor the Site or any User Content made available via the Site. However, you acknowledge and agree that Orion has the right to monitor the Site and User Content you submit and the right (but not the obligation) to delete, edit, move, or disable any such User Content in whole or in part subject to Orion's sole discretion. Orion reserves the right to suspend or terminate your access to the Site at any time. Under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any of your User Content including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in your User Content, any loss of your User Content or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of your User Content.
You agree and understand that the Orion Parties are not obligated to post or use your User Content submitted through the Site or otherwise, and may alternatively choose to discard or remove your User Content without any liability whatsoever. You further authorize Orion to publish your User Content in a searchable format that may be accessed by users of the Site and the Internet. You agree that Orion has no obligation to monitor or enforce your intellectual property rights to your User Content (except where and if required under applicable law) but has the right to protect and enforce its rights to your User Content.
C. Unsolicited Ideas. Please do not send unsolicited ideas, creative suggestions and/or any related materials through the Site or to any Orion Party ("Unsolicited Submissions"). An Unsolicited Submission is User Content as defined above. Orion does not accept Unsolicited Submission, including, without limitation, for motion pictures, television programs, web sites or other products or services. We wish to avoid any misunderstandings when projects developed by or on behalf of Orion may seem to others to be similar to their own creative ideas or materials. Therefore, please do not submit any such Unsolicited Submissions to Orion through this Site, including Community Forums, by e-mail, or otherwise. However, if you decide to submit any such Unsolicited Submissions, you agree to grant to Orion the right and license to your Unsolicited Submissions as User Content as set forth in the Section "License to Orion" above.
When you contribute, upload or otherwise provide your User Content to the Site, you agree to comply with the following requirements:
In cases where you feel threatened or believe someone else is in danger, you should contact your local law enforcement agency immediately.
Orion may provide certain “Mash Up Tools” on the Site that allow you to manipulate Materials or to combine Materials with your User Content ("Your Contribution to Collaborative Works") or other users' uploaded information. The works created using the Mash-Up Tools are called "Collaborative Works." Your use of Mash-Up Tools is subject to the following terms:
Orion may grant you -- but only through express written permission -- the limited, revocable permission to engage in certain expressly described personal uses of Materials that include the ability to share the Materials with others (“Viral Distribution”). Express written permission for Viral Distribution may include without limitation these personal uses: (a) sending Materials to friends or acquaintances at no charge; (b) posting and displaying a copy of Materials or other Orion materials such as Collaborative Works on a personal web site; or (c) posting and displaying a copy of the Materials or other Orion materials such as Collaborative Works on a third party web site that permits users to post content, so long as the posting is allowed pursuant to the third party site terms and conditions, and provided that the third party web site does not charge for access to those materials or associate those materials with products, services or advertising. You agree that you will not post any claims about an Orion product or service when engaging in Viral Distribution. But it would be acceptable to state “I Love Orion” with your Viral Distribution. In other words, you understand that only Orion can make claims, promises or statements on behalf of Orion about its products or services. You also agree that you will not imply that you and Orion are affiliated in any way or that Orion approves of your comments. We reserve the right to revoke our permission for Viral Distribution at any time and for any reason and you agree to immediately cease Viral Distribution upon notice of revocation and to comply with any terms we post in connection the Viral Distribution of Materials.
If expressly permitted and made available on the Site, you may engage in Viral Distribution pursuant to these Terms, but you will not make any use of or license, distribute, reproduce, or otherwise exploit any part of the Materials without our express written permission.
The Site may provide certain materials that you may choose to include in your personal web page, social networking profile page or similar personal digital page ("Personal Page") by pasting into your Personal Page the HTML or other code provided by Orion and labeled as an "Embed Code" (or similar identifying label) ("Widget"). For any Widgets that Orion makes available on the Site, Orion grants you a license, subject to the restrictions in these Terms, to include the Embed Code as provided by Orion (without editing) for inclusion on your Personal Page only. You agree that you will not embed or otherwise make available a Widget on a web page or web site containing content that is distasteful, unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortuous, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable (in Orion's sole opinion). As described below in the Disclaimers section, Orion makes no specific warranties about Widgets and Orion may discontinue providing the services necessary for the Widgets to operate at any time for any reason without any liability to you. In addition, Orion may disable Widgets that you include on your Personal Page(s) if you violate these Terms (as determined by Orion in its sole discretion) or for any or no reason, without any liability to you. You agree that Orion's license grant to you to use Widgets on your Personal Page does not provide you with any intellectual property rights, including without limitation copyrights, in the materials made available via any Widget. You agree to not sell, lease, hypothecate, transfer, license, distribute, reproduce, encumber or otherwise exploit the Materials made available in a Widget, in whole or in part, without the express consent of Orion. You agree to include, and not remove or alter, Orion's trademark, copyright or other proprietary rights notices, as provided by Orion on the Widget. You also agree to not use (or attempt to use) the Widget to display content other than the Materials provided or intended by Orion to be displayed via a particular Widget. Except as expressly stated otherwise, the Widget and any and all Materials provided through the Widget are subject to these Terms in their entirety.

Title to the Downloads is not transferred to you.

In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”), Orion has a designated agent for receiving notices of copyright infringement and Orion follows the notice and take down procedures of the DMCA.

We have a policy of terminating the accounts of users who (in our reasonable discretion) are repeat infringers.

We may request additional information before we remove any infringing material. If a dispute develops as to the correct owner of the rights in question, we reserve the right to remove your content along with that of the alleged infringer pending resolution of the matter.
Orion will provide you with notice if your User Content has been removed based on a third party complaint of alleged infringement of the third party’s intellectual property rights.

Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of the Site (including without limitation the arbitrability of any claim or controversy) shall be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act. The parties waive their rights to file suit in court to assert any allegation, claim, or cause of action against the other, or to have a jury trial on any allegation, claim, or cause of action, and any right to do so (including without limitation the right to a jury trial) is hereby waived. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and Orion retain the right to seek remedies in small claims court for disputes or claims within that court’s jurisdiction, and Orion retains the right to apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for provisional or conservatory relief, including without limitation pre-arbitral attachments or injunctions, and to adjudicate disputes relating to the infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property.
Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of the Site or this Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by the procedural and substantive laws of the State of California, without reference to choice-of-law rules. The arbitration will be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures then in effect. The arbitration shall be presided over by a single arbitrator in Los Angeles County, California. In the event this venue will cause undue hardship to you, then, the discretion of the arbitrator, the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted, with the parties participating through telephonic or video conference hearings, or at a location reasonably convenient to the parties in the state in which you reside at the time the arbitration is commenced, provided that it is within the Continental U.S. To the extent that any of the foregoing provisions are inconsistent with JAMS applicable standards then in effect, such JAMS rules shall apply.
Claims subject to this Arbitration Agreement may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis and you will not be able to participate in an arbitration as a representative or member of any class of claimants pertaining to that claim.

Subject to you demonstrating that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Orion will pay as much of the fees charged to you by JAMS as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost prohibitive to you.
The arbitrator will not have authority to award punitive or exemplary damages, and the parties waive any right to recover such damages. As part of the award, the prevailing party shall be awarded its costs, including without limitation arbitration fees, expert witness fees, if any, and reasonable attorney’s fees.
If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, for any reason, that specific portion shall be severed from the rest, but such severance shall not affect the enforceability of the remainder of this agreement. No waiver of any provision of this Arbitration Agreement will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving the provision, and any such waiver shall not waive or affect any other provision of this agreement.
THE FOREGOING PROVISIONS LIMIT CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THE JAMS RULES AND THESE DISPUTE RESOLUTION TERMS, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF; PROVIDED THAT NOTHING HEREIN WILL RESTRAIN A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT’S RIGHT, IF ANY, TO SEEK PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF AS PERMITTED BY LAW. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.

In addition, we may use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection purposes.
Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf. We sometimes use other businesses to perform services for us, such as web site hosting, conducting web site usage analysis, sending e-mail or other communications, fulfilling orders, providing marketing assistance and data analysis, clearing or performing other administrative services. We may provide access to your Personal Information to such service providers in order for them to complete a requested transaction or otherwise to perform these services.

By participating in a Promotion, you are agreeing to the provisions, conditions, or official rules that govern that Promotion, which may contain specific requirements of you (including, without limitation and except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor(s) of the Promotion to use you name, voice likeness or other indicia of persona in advertising or marketing materials).

We may share certain information such as Device Identifiers Usage, Information and de-identified information with third-party advertising companies, analytics providers and other vendors for similar purposes.
While we may use a variety of service providers to perform advertising and analytics services, some of these companies may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) or Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. You may wish to visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and the “opt-out” procedures of NAI members.

For mobile apps, you can typically limit ad tracking using the settings on your phone, tablet or other mobile device.
Please note opting out through these mechanisms does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads while online or on your device.
Some Internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to the online services that you visit. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many web sites and online services, the Site does not alter their practices when they receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser.
