Your Rights
You retain your rights to any Content you submit, post or display on or through the Services. What’s
yours is yours — you own your Content (and your photos and videos are part of the Content).
By submitting, posting or displaying Content on or through the Services, you grant us a worldwide,
non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process,
adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display and distribute such Content in any and all media or
distribution methods (now known or later developed). This license authorizes us to make your Content
available to the rest of the world and to let others do the same. You agree that this license
includes the right for FansnStars to provide, promote, and improve the Services and to make Content
submitted to or through the Services available to other companies, organizations or individuals for
the syndication, broadcast, distribution, promotion or publication of such Content on other media and
services, subject to our terms and conditions for such Content use. Such additional uses by
FansnStars, or other companies, organizations or individuals, may be made with no compensation paid
to you with respect to the Content that you submit, post, transmit or otherwise make available
through the Services.
FansnStars has an evolving set of rules for how ecosystem partners can interact with your Content on
the Services. These rules exist to enable an open ecosystem with your rights in mind. You understand
that we may modify or adapt your Content as it is distributed, syndicated, published, or broadcast by
us and our partners and/or make changes to your Content in order to adapt the Content to different
media. You represent and warrant that you have all the rights, power and authority necessary to grant
the rights granted herein to any Content that you submit.

enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Services as provided by FansnStars, in the manner
permitted by these Terms.
The Services are protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of both the United States and
foreign countries. Nothing in the Terms gives you a right to use the FansnStars name or any of the
FansnStars trademarks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brand features. All right, title,
and interest in and to the Services (excluding Content provided by users) are and will remain the
exclusive property of FansnStars and its licensors. Any feedback, comments, or suggestions you may
provide regarding FansnStars, or the Services is entirely voluntary and we will be free to use such

Ending These Terms
You may end your legal agreement with FansnStars at any time by deactivating your accounts and
discontinuing your use of the Services. See http://support.FansnStars.com/documents/how-to-
deactivate-your-account for instructions on how to deactivate your account and the Privacy Policy for
more information on what happens to your information.
We may suspend or terminate your account or cease providing you with all or part of the Services at
any time for any or no reason, including, but not limited to, if we reasonably believe: (i) you have
violated these Terms or the FansnStars Rules, (ii) you create risk or possible legal exposure for us;
(iii) your account should be removed due to prolonged inactivity; or (iv) our provision of the
Services to you is no longer commercially viable. We will make reasonable efforts to notify you by

limitation, your license to use the Services, except that the following sections shall continue to
apply: II, III, V, and VI.
5. Disclaimers and Limitations of Liability
The Services are Available “AS-IS”
Your access to and use of the Services or any Content are at your own risk. You understand and agree
that the Services are provided to you on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis. The “FansnStars
Entities” refers to FansnStars, its parents, affiliates, related companies, officers, directors,
employees, agents, representatives, partners, and licensors. Without limiting the foregoing, to the
maximum extent permitted under applicable law, THE FansnStars ENTITIES DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND
CONDITIONS, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR
NON-INFRINGEMENT. The FansnStars Entities make no warranty or representation and disclaim all
responsibility and liability for: (i) the completeness, accuracy, availability, timeliness, security
or reliability of the Services or any Content; (ii) any harm to your computer system, loss of data,
or other harm that results from your access to or use of the Services or any Content; (iii) the
deletion of, or the failure to store or to transmit, any Content and other communications maintained
by the Services; and (iv) whether the Services will meet your requirements or be available on an
uninterrupted, secure, or error-free basis. No advice or information, whether oral or written,
obtained from the FansnStars Entities or through the Services, will create any warranty or
representation not expressly made herein.
Limitation of Liability
THE FansnStars ENTITIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR
PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUES, WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OR ANY
LOSS OF DATA, USE, GOOD-WILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM (i) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF
OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES; (ii) ANY CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE
SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF OTHER USERS
OR THIRD PARTIES; (iii) ANY CONTENT OBTAINED FROM THE SERVICES; OR (iv) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE OR
ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR CONTENT. THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS SUBSECTION SHALL APPLY TO ANY
THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, STATUTE, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR
OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT THE FansnStars ENTITIES HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY
SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR LIMITATIONS ON THE DURATION OF
IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU IN THEIR ENTIRETIES, BUT WILL APPLY
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
6. General
We may revise these Terms from time to time. The changes will not be retroactive, and the most
current version of the Terms, which will always be at FansnStars.com/tos, will govern our
relationship with you. We will try to notify you of material revisions, for example via a service
notification or an email to the email associated with your account. By continuing to access or use
the Services after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
In the event that any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, then that
provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary, and the remaining provisions
of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. FansnStars’s failure to enforce any right or
provision of these Terms will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision.
These Terms are an agreement between you and FansnStars, a Limited company with its registered office
at FansnStars, 30 Winslow Way, Feltham, United Kingdom. If you have any questions about these Terms,
please contact us at info@fansnstars.com
