Description of Service
The Services are a combination of content that we create and also content created by third parties. Some Services provide you and other users with an opportunity to submit reviews, post, display, transmit and/or exchange information, messages, transmissions or material to us or others on or through that Service (collectively, the "Postings").
You understand that the Services are provided by DUS "AS IS". We do not guarantee 100% accuracy, integrity or quality of any content available on or through the Services. You acknowledge that you may not rely on any of this content, whether created by or submitted to us, including, but not limited to listings, reviews, articles, or literary quotations.
You understand that from time to time, you may communicate with, receive communications from, or use the services and/or products of the third parties (e.g., advertisers) as a result of your use of the Services. All such communication, interaction and participation is strictly and solely between you and such third party and DUS shall not be responsible or liable to you in any way in connection with these activities or transactions. You are also responsible for obtaining access to the Services and that access may involve third party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges).
You understand that you are solely responsible for all Postings, including dance listings, events and other materials, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, that are uploaded, posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available from your email address on or through the Services. You further agree that your Postings will not violate the TOS. Specifically, your Postings will not contain any material that (i) is false, inaccurate, or misleading; (ii) infringes any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights, or rights of publicity or privacy; (iii) violates a nondisclosure agreement, or violates any law or regulation (including, without limitation, those governing export control, unfair competition, or false advertising); (iv) is defamatory, constitutes trade libel or product disparagement, or is unlawfully threatening or harassing; (v) is obscene or contains child pornography; (vi) is offensive or sexually suggestive or (vii) contains viruses or computer programming routines that may damage or interfere with the operation of any system, or unlawfully intercept any data or personal information.
Additionally, you will not (i) reproduce, distribute, republish or re-transmit material posted by any other Services users without the permission of that user and DUS; (ii) take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure; or (iii) interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Services, any activities conducted on or through the Services, or any networks through which you access the Services.
You are advised that Postings do not reflect the views of DUS and we do not verify, endorse, or vouch for any such content. We do, however, enforce the TOS, and if we determine in our sole discretion that any Posting is inaccurate, was posted without authorization, or otherwise does or may violate these TOS, we reserve the right, at any time, without prior notice and without limiting any and all other rights we may have, at law or in equity, to (a) modify, refuse or remove the Posting; (b) revoke the applicable user’s right to use the Services; and/or (c) use any technological, legal, operational or other means available to DUS to enforce the provisions of these TOS, including, without limitation, blocking specific IP addresses or deactivating the applicable user’s registration.
You specifically grant to DUS a perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, nonexclusive right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display all Postings submitted by you or through your account, in whole or in part, and to incorporate them in other works in any form, media or technology now known or later developed throughout the universe. You also give DUS permission to copy your Postings as part of the normal backup process and to archive discussions containing your Postings.
* We reserve the right to serve third party advertisements anywhere on our website including your dance listing's details pages.
* We reserve the right to show limited listings summary information on certain states, counties and cities pages as well as search results.
Passwords and Other Security Issues
If we issue you a password, you agree to help protect your information by guarding that password, and by changing it as soon as possible if you believe its security has been compromised. If DUS allows you to choose a username and you select, in our sole discretion, one that is obscene, indecent, abusive or which is otherwise objectionable, DUS has the right, without prior notice to you, to automatically change your username, delete your Postings under it, deny you access to the Services, or any combination of these options. You may not transfer your registration, password or user name to another person or share it with anyone. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage that may result if you fail to comply with these requirements. If you believe your information has been used without your authorization, you agree to notify DUS immediately.

You agree that you will (i) not interfere with another registrant’s use and enjoyment of the Services; (ii) not interfere with or disrupt the security measures of the Services; (iii) not interfere with or disrupt networks connected to the Services, and will comply with all regulations, policies and procedures of such networks.
You agree to not use the Services to (i) send or otherwise transmit junk e-mail, chain letters, duplicative or unsolicited messages, or any other "spam"; (ii) harm minors; (iii) promote or generate revenue for any business or commercial purposes, whether or not for a charge or through linking with any other web services or pages, unless authorized by DUS; (iv) impersonate any person or entity; (v) intentionally or unintentionally violate any applicable local, state, national or international law; (vi) "stalk" or otherwise harass another; (vii) collect or store personal data about other users; or (viii) express or imply that any statements are endorsed by DUS unless we have provided you with prior written consent permitting you to make such statement.
