Updated August 28, 2009
Hello, and welcome to the Animation World Network publishing group, which includes AWN.com, VFXWorld.com, AWNtv.com, AnimationBlogspot.com, AIDB.com and AWN Press. Before you can start using this website, you must read and agree to these AWN Terms of Service.
Acceptance of Terms
Please read this page carefully. Your use of this site constitutes your agreement to the following terms and conditions. If you do not accept the Terms of Service, do not use the website or any associated services.
AWN, Inc., AWN.com, AWNtv.com, VFXWorld.com, AIDB.com, AnimationBlogspot.com as well as the associated web pages, features and functions made available to you from these websites (collectively, "AWN") provides its service to you, subject to the following Terms of Service ("TOS"), which may be updated from time to time without notice. You can review the published version of AWN’s TOS most any time at: http://AWN.com/tos.
Description of Service
AWN is a web publishing and hosting service that provides users with access to a collection of on-line resources as well as allows users to submit video and other content for publication (the "Service"). Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new AWN properties, shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided "as is" and that AWN assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, reliability, availability or security of the Service or the deletion, failure to store or deliver any user communications or personalization settings.
Modifications to Service
AWN may change, add or remove any part of this TOS, or any other terms associated with the use of the AWN system and website, at any time, without prior notice, by posting a notice of such changes to the TOS page of the AWN website. Any changes shall become part of the TOS and shall take effect as soon as they are posted. By using the Service, you are indicating your explicit consent to the terms and conditions of this TOS. If you do not agree with the terms and conditions of this TOS, do not use the Service.
Content Submitted To AWN
The Service is provided free of charge, with the goal of fostering communication and connections between people. We respect freedom of speech and our user’s responsibility for the text, data, messages, or information concerning or linked to software, music, sound, photography, graphics, video or other electronic materials (the “Content”) they choose to publish. We feel that censoring this Content is contrary to the goals of the Service and to the belief in freedom of expression. In order to uphold these values, it may become necessary to take steps to curb abuses that threaten the Service. Should any Content you have published be reported to AWN as being offensive or inappropriate, AWN might contact you to ask that you modify, remove or otherwise protect (by means of special administrative settings) the Content in question within a reasonable period of time as determined by AWN. Should you fail to meet such a request, AWN may terminate your account. AWN, however, is not obligated in any way to monitor or restrict user’s Content in any way.
Due to the nature of the Service, AWN may carry Content that you may find offensive, inaccurate, inappropriate and/or misleading. We expect you to use proper judgment and common sense when using the Service. AWN does not endorse, support, represent or guarantee the accuracy, truthfulness or reliability of any Content or communication posted or otherwise published via the Service. You rely on any published Content at your own risk.
