"TMMAG " is the interactive on-line service operated by Enligtenart Media Syndicate International ("ENLIGTENART") on the World Wide Web of the Internet, consisting of information services and content provided by ENLIGTENART, affiliates of ENLIGTENART and other third parties. "Viewer" means each person who establishes or accesses a connection ("Connection") for access to and use of TMMAG .

By using TMMAG (other than to read this Agreement for the first time), Viewer agrees to comply with all of the terms and conditions hereof. The right to use TMMAG is personal to Viewer and is not transferable to any other person or entity. Viewer is responsible for all use of Viewer's Connection (under any screen name or password) and for ensuring that all use of Viewer's Connection complies fully with the provisions of this Agreement. Viewer shall be responsible for protecting the confidentiality of Viewer's password(s), if any.

3. Changed Terms.
ENLIGTENART shall have the right at any time to change or modify the terms and conditions applicable to Viewer's use of TMMAG , or any part thereof, or to impose new conditions, including, but not limited to, adding fees and charges for use. Such changes, modifications, additions or deletions shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which may be given by means including, but not limited to, posting on TMMAG , or by electronic or conventional mail, or by any other means by which Viewer obtains notice thereof. Any use of TMMAG by Viewer after such notice shall be deemed to constitute acceptance by Viewer of such changes, modifications or additions.
Viewer shall be responsible for obtaining and maintaining all telephone, computer hardware and other equipment needed for access to and use of TMMAG and all charges related thereto.
5. Viewer Conduct.
(A) Viewer shall use TMMAG for lawful purposes only. Viewer shall not post or transmit through TMMAG any material which violates or infringes in any way upon the rights of others, which is unlawful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, vulgar, obscene, profane or otherwise objectionable, which encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any law, or which, without ENLIGTENART's express prior approval, contains advertising or any solicitation with respect to products or services. Any conduct by a Viewer that in ENLIGTENART's discretion restricts or inhibits any other Viewer from using or enjoying TMMAG will not be permitted. Viewer shall not use TMMAG to advertise or perform any commercial solicitation, including, but not limited to, the solicitation of users to become Viewers of other on-line information services competitive with TMMAG .

Viewer acknowledges that it does not acquire any ownership rights by downloading copyrighted material.
(C) Viewer shall not upload, post or otherwise make available on TMMAG any material protected by copyright, trademark or other proprietary right without the express permission of the owner of the copyright, trademark or other proprietary right and the burden of determining that any material is not protected by copyright rests with Viewer. Viewer shall be solely liable for any damage resulting from any infringement of copyrights, proprietary rights, or any other harm resulting from such a submission. By submitting material to any public area of TMMAG , Viewer automatically grants, or warrants that the owner of such material has expressly granted ENLIGTENART the royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate and distribute such material (in whole or in part) worldwide and/or to incorporate it in other works in any form, media or technology now known or hereafter developed for the full term of any copyright that may exist in such material.

ENLIGTENART neither endorses nor is responsible for the accuracy or reliability of any opinion, advice or statement made on TMMAG by anyone other than authorized ENLIGTENART employee spokespersons while acting in their official capacities. Under no circumstances will ENLIGTENART be liable for any loss or damage caused by a Viewer's reliance on information obtained through TMMAG . It is the responsibility of Viewer to evaluate the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any information, opinion, advice or other content available through TMMAG . Please seek the advice of professionals, as appropriate, regarding the evaluation of any specific information, opinion, advice or other content.

This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New South Wales, without regard to its conflict of laws rules. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. The section headings used herein are for convenience only and shall not be given any legal import.
