SUBMISSIONS

Mecca Music is pleased to hear from you and welcomes your comments regarding Mecca Music products, including Mecca Music’s online services. However, Mecca Music’s company policy does not allow it to accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions, or materials other than those it has specifically requested. Accordingly, we must, regretfully, ask that you do not send us any original creative materials other than those specifically requested. While we do value your feedback on our services and products, we request that you be specific in your comments on those services and products, and not submit any creative ideas, suggestions, or materials.

If at our request you send certain specific submissions (e.g., postings to chat boards, contests, appearance schedules, musical recordings, biographical information, contact information) or, despite our request that you not send us any other creative materials, you send us creative suggestions, ideas, notes, drawings, concepts, or other information (collectively, the "Submissions"), the Submissions shall be deemed, and shall remain, the property of Mecca Music. None of the Submissions shall be subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of Mecca Music, and Mecca Music shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submissions. Without limitation of the foregoing, Mecca Music shall exclusively own all now known or hereafter existing rights to the Submissions of every kind and nature and shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the Submissions for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to the provider of the Submissions.

Mecca Music respects the intellectual property rights of its users and third-parties and understands that Submissions may be protected under applicable copyrights, trademarks, registered trademarks and other proprietary (including but not limited to intellectual property) rights. You are individually responsible and liable for respecting such rights as may be applicable to your Submissions and Mecca Music requests that you respect the rights of other user and third-party Submissions.

EDITING

Mecca Music reserves the right in its sole discretion to edit or delete any documents, information or other content appearing on the MECCAMUSIC.COM site, including this Agreement, the Material and Submissions without further notice to users of the MECCAMUSIC.COM site. Mecca Music further reserves the rights in its sole discretion to edit or delete any documents, information or other content appearing on the MECCAMUSIC.COM site, including the Material and Submissions, which it deems not fit for display on the MECCAMUSIC.COM site, including but not limited to content that it deemed to be harassing, violent, abusive, disparaging, threatening, graphic, pornographic, spam and/or phishing.

LINKS TO OTHER WEB SITES

The MECCAMUSIC.COM site contains links to other Web sites. Mecca Music is not responsible for the content, accuracy or opinions expressed in such Web sites, and such Web sites are not investigated, monitored or checked for accuracy or completeness by Mecca Music. Inclusion of any linked Web site on the MECCAMUSIC.COM site does not imply approval or endorsement of the linked Web site by Mecca Music. If you decide to leave the MECCAMUSIC.COM site and access these third-party sites, you do so at your own risk.

LAPSED ACCOUNTS

In order to keep the MECCAMUSIC.COM site membership roster current, if you do not access your account for a period of one hundred eighty (180) days or more, Mecca Music may, in its sole discretion, terminate such account. Mecca Music will endeavor to notify you of the intent to terminate such account by notice to a provided email address at least fifteen days prior to deactivation. Therefore, Mecca Music strongly recommends that you keep all account and contact data current and in use. While Mecca Music desires to prevent active accounts from being terminated prematurely, Mecca Music has no obligation to maintain accounts that appear to Mecca Music to have been abandoned. You agree that failure to access your account for one hundred eighty (180) days or more conclusively indicates that such account has been abandoned and that the account may therefore be terminated.

Mecca Music reserves the right to contact you via email to verify the accuracy of account information (including the correct name and address) that is needed to provide you with information relating to the MECCAMUSIC.COM site.
