User Content Posted on the Site and Upload Policy
As a registered user, you may upload and post photos, profiles, messages, notes, text, information, music, video, advertisements, listings, and other content (collectively “User Content” and together with Site Content, the “Content”) on or through the Site or the Service, or transmit to or share with other users. You are solely responsible for all of your User Content. You may not post, transmit, or share any Content on the Site or Service that would infringe or violate the rights of third-parties. In furtherance of the foregoing, you represent and warrant that by submitting your User Content you will not be infringing on any other person’s copyright, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary or intellectual property rights, including privacy and publicity rights.
You may remove your User Content from the Site at any time. You understand and agree, however, that GGG may retain, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of User Content that have been removed or deleted. The above licenses granted by you in User Content are perpetual and irrevocable.
GGG does not control the User Content posted to the Site and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of any User Content. GGG does not endorse any User Content or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and GGG expressly disclaims any and all liability in connection with User Content. You understand that by accessing the Site and using the Service, you may be exposed to User Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable.
You may access other user’s User Content solely for your information and non-commercial, personal use and as intended through the normal functionality of the Site and Service, including without limitation the “streaming” of an audiovisual work. All User Content is made available “AS IS” and may not be copied, reproduced, distributed, or otherwise exploited in any manner other than as intended by the normal functionality of the Site and Service.
GGG may offer services that are available via your mobile phone, including without limitation the ability to upload content and messages to the Site, blog post, and send and receive messages, instant messages, and other types of communications that may be developed for the Site (collectively the "Mobile Services"). Your mobile carrier's normal messaging, data and other rates and fees may apply when using the Mobile Services. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Mobile Services may be prohibited or restricted by your mobile carrier, and not all Mobile Services may work with all mobile carriers or devices. When available, by using any Mobile Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding GGG and the Site and other entities by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about your usage of the Mobile Services may be communicated to us.
Third Party Links, Sites and Content; Third-Party Advertising
Some of the services or functionality accessible on the Site may be provided by third parties on Third Party Sites. In these cases, users who choose to access such services or functionality will be required to navigate away from the Site and to register on the Third Party Site. This registration is separate from any registration on the Site, and will be governed solely by the policies, terms and conditions of the Third Party Site, including privacy and data gathering policies. You acknowledge and agree that GGG has no liability for the services or functionality provided on such Third Party Sites, including without limitation the security of payment or other transactions, notwithstanding that in some instances such Third Party Sites may incorporate GGG trademarks, logos or other identifying materials.
If you decide to leave the Site and access any Third Party Site or to use or install any Third Party Content, you do so at your own risk and you should be aware that our terms and policies will not govern your use of or actions on such Third Party Sites or Third Party Content. You should review the applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices, of any Third Party Site to which you navigate from the Site or relating to any Third Party Content you use or install from the Site.
From time to time we may post content on the Site at the request of a third-party that is created and/or owned by such third-parties. Sometimes such third-party will pay GGG or give GGG other consideration for posting the content on the Site. When that happens, such content will be differentiated and labeled as “Sponsored.”
As a convenience to users, the Site may offer a service to facilitate users’ being able to identify and locate opportunities for volunteer work with third party organizations. In offering this service, however, GGG does not endorse and makes no representations or warranties regarding any such third party organizations. GGG does not and has no duty to investigate the nature, safety, quality or integrity of any organization or of any volunteer opportunities that are offered.
If you participate in any such volunteer activities, you, on behalf of yourself and your heirs, next of kin, spouse, guardians, legal representatives, employees, executors, administrators, agents, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Releasing Parties”), release and forever discharge GGG, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, licensees, successors and assigns, and the officers, director, employees, contractors, partners, shareholders, representatives, members and agents of all of them (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from and against any and all claims, demands, liens, agreements, contracts, actions, suits, costs, attorneys’ fees, damages, judgments, orders and liabilities of whatever kind or nature in law, equity or otherwise, whether now known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, and whether or not concealed or hidden (collectively, the “Released Claims”) in any way directly or indirectly related to or arising directly or indirectly out of such activities. The Released Claims include those based on negligence of any of the Released Parties, products liability, personal injury, property damage or wrongful death.
A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS THAT THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.
Notwithstanding such provisions, this release shall constitute a full release in accordance with its terms. Releasing Parties knowingly and voluntarily waive the provisions of Section 1542, as well as any other statute, law, or rule of similar effect in any jurisdiction.

Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy
GGG respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. It is our policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. In GGG’s sole discretion, GGG may remove content that may be infringing on another person’s intellectual property rights with or without notice to the potential infringer. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and other applicable law, GGG has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at GGG's sole discretion, users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. If we remove or disable access in response to such a notice, we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the owner or administrator of the affected site or content so that they may make a counter-notification.
If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or that your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please file a written notice of infringement with GGG’s copyright agent containing the information specified below. Please note that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is infringing your copyrights.
- 1. an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;
- 2. a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;
- 3. a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Site, with enough detail that we may find it on the Site;
- 4. your address, telephone number, and email address;
- 5. a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law;
- 6. a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your Notice is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner's behalf.
GGG’s agent for notice of claims of copyright or other intellectual property infringement can be reached as follows:
c/o GGG, LLC
For clarity, only copyright infringement notices should go to this above e-mail address. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this section your notice may not be valid.
If you believe the User Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the such User Content, you may submit a counter-notice to the address listed above containing the following information:
- 1. Your physical or electronic signature;
- 2. Identification of the User Content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the User Content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- 3. A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and
- 4. Your name, physical address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in Los Angeles, California, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
After we receive your counter-notification, we will forward it to the party who submitted the original claim of copyright infringement. Please note that when we forward the counter-notification, it includes your personal information. By submitting a counter-notification, you consent to having your information revealed in this way. We will not forward the counter-notification to any party other than the original claimant.
After we send out the counter-notification, the claimant must then notify us within 10 days that he or she has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to User Content that was removed or disabled. If we receive such notification we will be unable to restore the material. If we do not receive such notification, we may reinstate the material.
Please note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability. Please also be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of users who are repeat infringers. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.
