TERMINATION FOR BREACH: YAH may suspend, disable, or delete your account (or any part thereof) or block or remove any content you submitted if YAH determines that you have violated any provision of this Agreement or that your conduct or content would tend to damage YAH‘s reputation and goodwill. If YAH deletes your account for the foregoing reasons, you may not re-register. YAH may block your email address and Internet protocol address to prevent further registration.

LICENSE TO VIMEO: As between you and YAH, you own the video content (“videos”) that you submit to the Vimeo Service. By submitting a video, you grant YAH and its affiliates a limited, worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license and right to copy, transmit, distribute, publicly perform and display (through all media now known or hereafter created), and make derivative works from your video for the purpose of (i) displaying the video within the YAH; (ii) displaying the video on third party websites and applications through a video embed or YAH‘s API subject to your video privacy choices; (iii) allowing other users to play, download, and embed on third party websites the video, subject to your video privacy choices; (iii) promoting YAH, provided that you have made the video publicly available; and (iv) archiving or preserving the video for disputes, legal proceedings, or investigations.

This includes the right to copy and make derivative works from the videos solely to the extent necessary to view the videos. The foregoing licenses are in addition to any license you may decide to grant (e.g., a Creative Commons license).
DURATION OF LICENSES: The above licenses will continue unless and until you remove your videos from the YAH, in which case the licenses will terminate within a commercially reasonable period of time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the license for legal archival/preservation purposes will continue indefinitely. Please note that removed videos may be cached in search engine indices after removal and that YAH has no control over such caching.
As between you and YAH, you own all non-video content that you submit to the YAH Service.

If you make suggestions to YAH on improving or adding new features to the YAH Service, YAH shall have the right to use your suggestions without any compensation to you.
For each piece of content that you submit, you represent and warrant that: (i) you have the right to submit the content to YAH and grant the licenses set forth above; (ii) YAH will not need to obtain licenses from any third party or pay royalties to any third party; (iii) the content does not infringe any third party’s rights, including intellectual property rights and privacy rights; and (iv) the content complies with this Agreement and all applicable laws.
You will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless YAH and its affiliates, directors, officers, employees, and agents, from and against all third party actions that: (i) arise from your activities on the YAH Service; (ii) assert a violation by you of any term of this Agreement; or (iii) assert that any content you submitted to YAH violates any law or infringes any third party right, including any intellectual property or privacy right.
