The Products and Content will be owned by you or a third party from whom you got permission to include the Products and/or Content. By including Products and/or Content within the Service, however, you grant iamota a worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license, for as long as your Products and/or Content are displayed by iamota, to reproduce, display, modify, adapt and publish the Products and/or Content for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting your Products and/or Content on iamota and transmitting your Products and/or Content to mobile users upon their request. iamota may preserve and store Products and Content, and may also disclose Products and Content if required to do so by law, upon the request of a wireless carrier for Product and Content audit purposes, or if iamota believes in good faith that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: comply with the legal process; enforce these Terms and Conditions; respond to claims that any Product or Content violates the rights of third parties; respond to reports of questionable Product or Content; or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of iamota, its users and the public.

The iamota Account holder, and not iamota, will be fully responsible for all Products, Content and Mobile Services that are uploaded, posted, transmitted or otherwise made available by the iamota Account holder on his or her Products, Content and Mobile Services. iamota cannot guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Products, Content and Mobile Services. iamota pre-screens all Products to ensure they fall within carrier guidelines for micro-content campaigns. However, iamota does not pre-screen Content, but will have the right (but not the obligation) in its sole discretion to refuse or remove any Content for any reason, including that may violate these Terms, or that is otherwise objectionable. However, Content is filtered and monitored in the following ways: users must agree to these Terms and Conditions and the iamota Picture and Video Submission Policy when providing any Content; the iamota Admin Panel allows an administrator to frequently review all images, video and text based Content in the system; text based Content is filtered through a "bad word" dictionary which replaces full matches with asterisks (***) before sending the Content to a mobile user's device; the Content is then automatically flagged for immediate moderator review to determine if the source is inappropriate; where an offending piece of Content is found in the system, it is immediately disabled; and finally, serious offenses or repeat offenders may have their account terminated by iamota and be banned from providing Content in the future. iamota cannot take responsibility for anything that your visitors may do in reliance on the Content you include in the Service.
