Nexstar Broadcasting, Inc. Sites Terms of Service Effective as of November, 2013
Welcome to the Nexstar Broadcasting, Inc. community portals (the “Nexstar Sites” or “Sites”), which are operated by the television stations (“Station”) owned by Nexstar Broadcasting, Inc., Mission Broadcasting, Inc. and/or certain other affiliated entities (collectively, “Nexstar,” “we,” “us” or “our”).
Nexstar furnishes the Sites and the Nexstar Services (defined below) for your personal enjoyment and entertainment. These Terms of Service (this “Agreement”) apply to the our Sites, mobile applications and all other digital media owned and/or operated by Nexstar and govern your use of certain of our digital products, including this Site, mobile versions of the Site, mobile downloadable applications, services that allow you to submit content to us, blog submission services, RSS feeds, widgets or other embedding technologies, podcasts, chat rooms and message boards, Nexstar or Station accounts on social media platforms, including, but not limited to Facebook and Twitter (collectively, the “Nexstar Services” or “Services”). Any new Nexstar Services made available to you by us that enhance or modify the current Sites or Services will also be subject to the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service. By visiting any Nexstar Site (whether or not you are a registered user) or using the Nexstar Services, you accept and agree to be bound by this Agreement, including any future modifications, and to abide by all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations (“Applicable Law”).
We may modify this Agreement at any time, and each such modification will be effective upon the “Effective Date” stated at the top of this Agreement. All material modifications will apply prospectively only. Your continued use of the Nexstar Sites or the Nexstar Services following any modification constitutes your acceptance and agreement to be bound by the Agreement as so modified. It is therefore important that you review this Agreement regularly and it your responsibility to do so.
Your access to and use of certain parts of the Nexstar Sites or Nexstar Services may require you to accept additional terms and conditions and may require you to download Software or Content (each as defined below). We will provide these terms to you or post them where they apply and they are incorporated by reference into this Agreement. If there is a conflict between this Agreement and any additional terms that apply to a particular Service, the additional terms will control.
BY USING ANY NEXSTAR SITE OR NEXSTAR SERVICES YOU AGREE TO ACCEPT AND BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT. If you do not agree to be bound by this Agreement and to abide by all Applicable Law, you must discontinue use of the Nexstar Services immediately.
Eligibility for the Nexstar Sites Registration and Account Security
Use of Nexstar Services is limited to users aged 13 years and above. If you are under 13 years of age you may not create a user account.
The Nexstar Sites may offer one or more Services requiring user registration. You agree that all registration information you submit to create a user account will be accurate and complete and kept updated. You may not (i) register under the name of another person; (ii) use a user name that we, in our sole discretion, deem offensive; or (iii) create more than one personal account for any Nexstar Site. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and are responsible for all use of your account. You agree not to use the account, username, email address or password of another user at any time. You agree to notify us immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of, or access to, your account or password. Only individuals may register for an account.
Nexstar Content and Services
Nexstar Content and Services are offered for your personal use only and may not be used for commercial purposes unless specifically authorized by us. The Nexstar Sites and Nexstar Services contain information, text, files, images, video, sounds, musical works, works of authorship, applications, and any other materials or content owned by Nexstar or licensed to us by third parties (the “Nexstar Content”). Nexstar Content is protected by copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret and/or other laws, and as between you and Nexstar, Nexstar owns and retains all rights in the Nexstar Content and the Nexstar Services. The Nexstar Sites and Services may also contain content of users and others (“Third Party Content” and collectively with the Nexstar Content, the “Content”). Nexstar reserves the right to remove Content in its sole discretion.
Except as otherwise stated in this Agreement, Nexstar hereby grants you a limited, revocable, non-sublicensable license to access and display the Content (excluding any software code) solely for your personal, non-commercial use in connection with viewing a Nexstar Site and using the Nexstar Services, provided you do not remove or modify any trademark, copyright or other notices contained in the Content. If Nexstar elects to grant you greater rights than set forth in this Agreement (which rights may only be granted in an express writing), such grant of rights will be revocable at will without cause by Nexstar, unless expressly stated otherwise. Except as provided in this Agreement or as explicitly allowed on the Nexstar Services, you may not copy, download, stream capture, reproduce, duplicate, archive, upload, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, retransmit, distribute, perform, display, sell or otherwise use any Content appearing on or through the Nexstar Services. To request permission to use the Content in any way not authorized in this Agreement, please contact us.
With respect to any video player on any Nexstar Site, you are hereby granted a revocable license to embed the video player on any non-commercial website or other location except those containing content that is unlawful, pornographic, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, vulgar, indecent, profane, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or that encourages criminal conduct, gives rise to civil liability, violates Applicable Law, infringes any right of any third party including intellectual property rights or rights of privacy, or is otherwise inappropriate or offensive. Nexstar may revoke this license at any time upon notice, with or without cause, in its sole discretion. You may not modify, enhance, or otherwise alter in any way any portion of the Content on the video player, the video player itself or its underlying technology. This restriction includes disabling or otherwise modifying the video player in a manner that enables users to view any portion of the Content without using the video player. Except as expressly permitted by Nexstar, you are strictly prohibited from creating works or materials (including, but not limited to, fonts, icons, link buttons, wallpaper, desktop themes, on-line postcards, montages, mash-ups and similar videos, greeting cards and unlicensed merchandise) that derive from or are based on the Content. This prohibition applies regardless of whether the derivative works or materials are sold, bartered or given away. You may not directly or through the use of any device, software, internet site, web-based service or other means remove, bypass, avoid, interfere with, or circumvent any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices marked on the Content or any digital rights management mechanism, device, or other content protection or access control measure associated with the Content including geo-filtering mechanisms.
Portions of the Nexstar Sites or Services may provide you and other users an opportunity to submit, post, display, transmit and/or exchange information, ideas, opinions, photographs, images, video, creative works or other information, messages or material, including your name or likeness to us, the Nexstar Sites or Services (collectively, “User Content”). You understand that User Content will be publicly displayed and may include your personally identifiable information if you provide it. Please use your best judgment when using the Nexstar Sites and Services. We discourage divulging personal phone numbers and addresses or other information that can be used to identify or locate you. Remember that whenever you give out personal information online, through any media, including without limitation, a forum or blog, that information can be collected and used by people you do not know. We cannot and do not guarantee the security of any information you disclose through any of these media; you make such disclosures at your own risk. You understand that we may publish your username in connection with any submission. If you use your legal name as your username, then your legal name may be published.
Nexstar does not control, pre-screen or otherwise monitor the User Content posted by users and, as such, you understand you may be exposed to offensive, indecent, inaccurate or otherwise objectionable Content. Nexstar does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity, or quality of User Content and we assume no responsibility or liability for any User Content. If at any time, Nexstar chooses in its sole discretion to monitor User Content, Nexstar nonetheless assumes no responsibility for Content other than Nexstar Content, assumes no obligation to modify or remove any inappropriate Content, and no responsibility for the conduct of any user. You are entirely responsible for all User Content that you post, upload, transmit, email or otherwise make available on, through or in connection with the Nexstar Sites or Services. By posting User Content, you represent and warrant: (a) you own or otherwise have all necessary rights to the User Content you provide and the rights to provide it under this Agreement; (b) the User Content does not infringe or misappropriate any copyright, trademark, service mark, trade secret, patent, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights of any third party, including, but not limited to, rights of privacy or publicity, and (c) the User Content does not violate any Applicable Law, including, but not limited to, any applicable advertising or fair housing laws or regulations, or cause injury to any person or damage to any property. IF THE USER CONTENT YOU PROVIDE CONSISTS OF A PHOTO OR VIDEO THAT DEPICTS ANY CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13, YOU AFFIRM THAT YOU ARE THE CHILD’S PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN OR THAT YOU HAVE WRITTEN PERMISSION FROM THE CHILD’S PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN TO PROVIDE THE PHOTO OR VIDEO. You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owing any person or entity by reason of the use of any User Content posted by you on or through the Nexstar Sites and Services.
Nexstar does not claim any ownership rights in the User Content that you post, upload, email transmit, or otherwise make available on, through or in connection with the Nexstar Sites or Services; provided, however, that User Content will not include any Content posted by a user that is already owned by Nexstar. By posting any User Content you hereby grant to Nexstar and our affiliated companies, licensees and authorized users, a perpetual, non-exclusive, fully-paid and royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable (in whole or in part), worldwide license to use, modify, excerpt, adapt, create derivative works and compilations based upon, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce, and distribute such User Content on, through or in connection with the Nexstar Sites and Services or in connection with any distribution or syndication thereof to Third Party Services (as defined below), on and through all media formats now known or hereafter devised, for any and all purposes including, but not limited to, promotional, marketing, trade or commercial purposes. You hereby waive any moral rights you may have in your User Content. Our use of such User Content does not require any further notice to you and such use will be without the requirement of any permission from or payment to you or to any other person or entity.
