As a user you and your computer necessarily must supply information to access, register and use MegaMeeting.com and the Services. You may choose, or your computer may automatically function, to send information to us, or exchange it with us and others during the course of your use of MegaMeeting.com and the Services. Your User's Information (also called "Your Information") is defined for the purposes of this Agreement to mean the content and the form of any and all information which you or your computer provide to us, or cause or permit other persons to transmit to us, in connection with:

(iv) any email or other communications you have with MegaMeeting.com or Internet MegaMeeting, LLC or its employees or agents; and

13. Your Communications Content
"Your Communications Content" is the content and form of any information that you post, communicate, transmit, or direct to any third party in any manner through the use of MegaMeeting.com, or the Services, or the MegaMeeting.com Internet domain, or any subdomain, or any linked domain that is owned, controlled or operated by Internet MegaMeeting, LLC. You are solely responsible for the accuracy, lawfulness, risks and use of the content of Your Communications Content. MegaMeeting.com does not select, monitor or modify Your Communications Content. "Third party" means any person not affiliated with Internet MegaMeeting, LLC.
14. Your Correspondents' Communications Content
"Your Correspondents' Communications Content" means the content and form of any information that you receive, access, take or otherwise obtain that originated from, was sent from, or was posted by any third party in any manner through MegaMeeting.com the MegaMeeting.com Services, or the MegaMeeting.com Internet domain, or any subdomain, or any linked domain that is owned, controlled or operated by Internet MegaMeeting, LLC. You and your correspondents are solely responsible for the accuracy, lawfulness, risks and use of the content of Your Correspondents' Communications Content. MegaMeeting.com does not monitor, select or modify Your Correspondents' Communications Content. "Third party" means any person not affiliated with Internet MegaMeeting, LLC.
15. Information We Receive, Switch and Transmit
MegaMeeting.com provides systems for the receipt, switching and transmission of Your Communications Content and Your Correspondents' Communications Content during your sessions using the Services. This is similar in some respects to the switching of telephone calls.
15.1 Limited Participation Sessions and Host-approved Participants.
15.1.1 Registered Members Act as Hosts of Limited Participation Sessions. During a session using MegaMeeting.com Personal, MegaMeeting.com Private, or MegaMeeting.com Professional, MegaMeeting.com receives and transfers communications only among the Host and other participants who have been approved by the Host Member to participate in that particular private session or conference ("Limited Participation" session). MegaMeeting.com records both the registration information of the Host Member and that Host Member's User ID and email address because only registered Members of MegaMeeting.com can act as Host of a Limited Participation session. As a necessary condition of participation in a Limited Participation session, MegaMeeting.com requires that each other participant supply MegaMeeting.com with a user name and a valid, functional email address with reference to which communications will be switched during that particular session. (The terms of service for uses implemented on MegaMeeting.com Enterprise software generally will not be covered by this Agreement because MegaMeeting.com Enterprise software is licensed to Enterprise Customers who operate that software on computer servers owned or controlled by the Enterprise Customer, not under the control of Internet MegaMeeting, LLC.)
15.1.2 Non-Host Participants in Limited Participation Sessions. To participate in a Limited Participation session a prospective participant must first log onto the MegaMeeting.com system by providing MegaMeeting.com with the prospective participant's user name and a valid, functional email address. MegaMeeting.com records the user name and email address supplied during log-on by each prospective participant in a Limited Participation session. MegaMeeting.com does not require that any participant in a Limited Participation session, other than the Host Member, be a registered member. MegaMeeting.com does not undertake to verify the validity or functionality of the email address provided by a prospective participant. However, all Members and participants are required to provide valid, functional email addresses, the products and services may not function correctly without them, and it is a violation of this Agreement for a Member or participant to supply a non-functional, fake, or impersonated email address and user name. Each prospective participant's log-on information will be recorded by MegaMeeting.com. Prospective non-Host participants either (1) can be invited to participate in a particular Limited Participation session through an email initiated by the Host through MegaMeeting.com's system, or (2) can be informed of the Host's email and scheduled session by means independent of MegaMeeting.com's system. The prospective participant then must log onto MegaMeeting.com's system and query the MegaMeeting.com system by manually keying in the registered email address of the Host Member to determine whether that Member is the Host of a currently pending or scheduled session, and then can request participation in that Host's current or scheduled session. MegaMeeting.com forwards to the Host of a particular session the logged-on user name and email address of each prospective participant who has requested participation with reference to that Host's registered email address. The Host of that particular Limited Participation session then must affirmatively select which of the logged-on user names and email addresses are approved for participation in that Host's particular Limited Participation session and must transmit back to MegaMeeting.com the Host's affirmative approval of the selected user names and email addresses. Thus MegaMeeting.com will have identifiable Membership registration information for the logged-on user name and email address of a non-Host participant only if, coincidentally, a non-Host participant also happens to be a registered Member and has used that identical user name and email address to register as a Member.
16. IP Addresses Received and Recorded
Every user's browser as part of the automatic network protocol reports its IP (Internet Port) address to the MegaMeeting.com website each time a web page is viewed and we may record and store some or all of these IP addresses as well as a listing of the web pages requested using a particular IP address . Your IP address may be stored in our data base when you register for Membership.
17. MegaMeeting.com Not Obliged to Verify User Names, Email Addresses or Identities
Because a user name and email address are used to route communications among computers, and because computers communicate with each other by coded network addresses, the combination of a user name and email address might, but does not necessarily, identify a particular person. MegaMeeting.com ordinarily does not and usually cannot verify or authenticate email addresses and does not undertake any obligation to you to do so. MegaMeeting.com does not and usually cannot verify or control the identity of the natural persons who have access to or control the particular computers that are identified by an IP address or email address supplied to MegaMeeting.com for computer-routing purposes and we do not undertake any obligation to you to do so.
It is the responsibility and risk of the Host Member to use whatever identification measures the Host thinks appropriate and prudent when the Host supplies its registered address for delivery to prospective participants and when the Host approves a particular user name and email address for participation in a Host's particular Limited Participation session. Similarly, it is the responsibility and risk of a prospective participant when using a Host's email address, and when supplying MegaMeeting.com with the prospective participant's email address and password for delivery to a Host, to use such measures as the prospective participant thinks appropriate and prudent to identify and verify whom it will be dealing with in a session, including without limitation the Host and other participants in the session.
We reserve the right, for protection of ourselves and our systems, to use whatever lawful means may be at our disposal to attempt to verify any IP (Internet Port) address, email address, or other identification information of any Member, participant, user or visitor.
18. Contents Of Host and Participant Communications Are Transitory in Limited Participation Sessions; Hostís Choice to Record or Not; No Long-term Archival Storage
During Limited Participation sessions, communications among the Host and other participants are transitorily resident within the automatic switching systems, computer memory, and any temporary on-line parallel or concurrent backup systems of MegaMeeting.com and our Internet Service Providers ("ISPs"). Each Limited Participation session is generally limited not to exceed ten consecutive days, and most will have much shorter duration.
Within Limited Participation sessions all transmission of communications is initiated or directed by the Host and other participants, not by MegaMeeting.com. Communication content is transmitted among the Host and other participants automatically based upon the Host's selection of participants. The transmission, routing, provision of connections, and any storage of content is done at the direction of the Host and other participants, and material is transmitted by automatic technical processes without selection or modification of the content by MegaMeeting.com.
MegaMeeting.com offers to some Hosts, using MegaMeeting.com software, a capability to record onto MegaMeeting.com servers the Communication content of a session. The Host thereafter can download the recorded Communication content from MegaMeetingís computers to the Hostís computer. The Host then can deal with the recorded matter at the Hostís discretion without any supervision or controls by MegaMeeting. MegaMeeting does not claim any ownership or control of the recorded Communication content, but leaves those issues exclusively to the Host that chose to record the matter, except in the rare case where MegaMeeting might claim rights to particular content independently of the Hostís session, such as by trademark, copyright or patent. The decision whether to record or not is made by the Host, not by MegaMeeting. The MegaMeeting recording capability is designed to automatically post a notice on the computer screen of each prospective participant that a Host has elected to record the particular session. A prospective participant should not enter the session if the prospective participant does not wish to be recorded. Similarly, any participant can terminate participation in a recorded session at any time, though any recording made by a Host before termination will remain on MegaMeetingís computers, available for download by the Host of the session. MegaMeeting automatically deletes recorded matter from MegaMeetingís operating computers after a limited period of time, which may be less than 30 days. It is a Hostís choice and responsibility to download recorded matter that a Host wishes to preserve before that matter is deleted by MegaMeeting. MegaMeeting disclaims any resposibility for the contents, quality of recording, failure to successfully record, loss, destruction or deletion of matter that a Host chooses to record. A Host that chooses to record matter is soley responsible for insuring that such recordation complies with the laws and regulations of any governmental authority having jurisdiction over any portion of the communications.
MegaMeeting.com does not otherwise record, backup, or archive the contents of Host and participant communications during a Limited Participation session, except as is technically necessary for that particular Limited Participation session, and those contents then are dissipated from MegaMeeting.com's systems either during or upon termination of a particular Limited Participation session. Except for recording made at the choice of the Host of a particular session, no copy of Your Communications Content or Your Correspondents' Communication Content during Limited Participation sessions is maintained or stored on the MegaMeeting.com system or network in a manner that ordinarily would be accessible to anyone other that the Host and participants selected by the Host for a particular Limited Participation session.
After termination of a particular session no copy that has been maintained by MegaMeeting.com during a particular Limited Participation session remains ordinarily accessible to the Host or other participants for a longer period than is reasonably necessary for that Limited Participation session, except what a Host has chosen to record.
The Host and other participants are entirely responsible for any recordation, archiving, or other backup of their own content, and may do so only as permitted by applicable law. If a Host has not chosen to record Communication content, then after completion of a particular Limited Participation session the only information that is retained by design at MegaMeeting.com with reference to that Limited Participation session is a record that the Host's session took place, which may include the time, and the user names, email addresses and IP addresses supplied by the Host, participants and prospective participants for that session.
MegaMeeting.com does not monitor the content of Host and participant communications either during Limited Participation sessions or thereafter where a Host has chosen to record content. The Host and participants bear sole responsibility, risk and liability for the content of their communications and for the identification and selection of recipients of their communications. The Host and participants in a Limited Participation session are responsible for determining and resolving among themselves rights related to the content of sessions, whether or not recorded.
19. User-Implemented Encryption or Other Special Security Issues of Users
User hereby acknowledges that information that passes through or is retained on MegaMeetingís computer servers has a moderate level of password-access security that is required to enter into a meeting ("Meeting-level Access Security"). After such password access is gained to ameeting then the content of that meeting is generally available to anyone who has acquired such password access to that meeting, or to recorded copies of such meeting. The degree of a Userís password-access security for a meeting is dependent upon the Userís selection of stronger or weaker passwords and the Userís distribution and control of the Userís passwords. User acknowledges that User can implement a higher degree of security within a meeting by applying additional password access, or other encryption controls, to certain kinds of particular information within that meeting and within the recorded records of that meeting ("Encrypted Content Within A Meeting"), but not as to the streaming live audio and live video of the meeting as a whole, or to recordings of the meeting as a whole. It shall be the responsibility of the User (A) to identify the particular portions of its own information and content that requires such a higher level of security within a meeting, and (B) to implement the Userís higher level of security for such information and content that the User transmits or receives. For example, and without limitation, a User can individually encrypt a particular document before transmitting that document within a meeting through the MegaMeeting computer servers, and before storing that particular document on MegaMeeting servers. Then, even if Meeting-level Access Security fails for a meeting as a whole, the User still can maintain the separate higher-level security access to particular content within that meeting. User shall be responsible for selecting and implementing an encryption system or other security system of Userís choice for Encrypted Content Within A Meeting. As an example and without limitation, a User can implement the encryption features of Adobe Acrobat for particular documents that the User identifies as too sensitive to protect solely by Meeting-level Access Security. User shall not provide to MegaMeeting the Userís access passwords for Encrypted Content Within A Meeting. MegaMeeting shall not have any responsibility or liability for encryption or decryption of Userís information and content, nor for control or distribution of Userís access to Encrypted Content Within A Meeting.
20. MegaMeeting Public Rooms; Public Video, Text Chat Rooms and Billboards
MegaMeeting.com may provide public video, text chat rooms, billboards, special interest rooms, and other publicly available contents at its website ("MegaMeeting Public Rooms"), the content of which may be accessible by any member of the general public visiting the MegaMeeting.com website with minimal or no registration. MegaMeeting.com's Public Rooms enable visitors and prospective Members to engage in limited trials of MegaMeeting.com's systems. Visitors to the MegaMeeting.com website may be enabled to post information to some MegaMeeting Public Rooms. The content posted by visitors to the MegaMeeting Public Rooms will be transitorily resident within the automatic switching systems, computer memory and caches, and any temporary on-line parallel or concurrent backup systems, of MegaMeeting.com and its Internet service providers. Both the posting and accessing of content in MegaMeeting.com Public Rooms is done automatically at the direction of visitors and prospective Members and MegaMeeting.com does not undertake to select or modify such content, other than by deleting it from time to time. MegaMeeting.com does not archive or preserve content which is posted in MegaMeeting Public Rooms. Our policy is to take down material from MegaMeeting Public Rooms after display for not more than ten consecutive days, and often more frequently, after which such content dissipates from its systems. MegaMeeting.com reserves the right, at any time and for any reason whatsoever or for no reason: (i) to take down, restrict, or refuse to post any information in the MegaMeeting Public Rooms, or (ii) to make such Public Rooms available or unavailable.
21. License Granted By You To Us for Content Transmitted by You to Public Areas
When you communicate content to or within any MegaMeeting Public Room or any other area of MegaMeeting.com which is intended to be accessible by the general public, then you shall be deemed to have granted to us (Internet MegaMeeting, LLC ) an irrevocable, world-wide, no-royalty, no-fee license to publish, distribute, use, reproduce, modify, adapt, translate, publicly perform and publicly display (in whole or in part) in any manner, place, or medium whatsoever such content transmitted or posted to MegaMeeting Public Rooms. This license from you to us is fully sublicensable by us.
MegaMeeting.com does not pre-screen the content of transmissions and postings originated or transmitted by you or by any other user or visitor in MegaMeeting Public Rooms. We have no obligation to post, display, transmit, or retain any material whatsoever in any MegaMeeting Public Room or other publicly accessible area. We at our sole and unfettered discretion may limit access of anyone, refuse to post, or may remove or delete any matter, or may block or terminate access by any person, at any time for any reason or for no reason. We also may make available or unavailable any Public Room, public page, or other area that may be generally accessible to the public.
22. License Granted by Us To You for Use of Our Systems and Software
Internet MegaMeeting, LLC grants you a temporary limited license to access and use MegaMeeting.com Public Rooms which then are being made available by us without registration by you as a Member; this license is non-transferable and non-sublicensable by you, is terminable at will by us without notice to you; and is subject to the terms of this Agreement. Generally your access to a Public Room may be automatically limited not to exceed ten minutes during any one log on by you. If you register as a Member, and so long as you comply with the payment terms and other terms of this Agreement, or if you are granted access by a Host Member to a Limited Participation session, then you are granted by us a temporary limited license to use those portions of our system which we provide for that particular Limited Participation session. Your license as Member is non-sublicensable and non-transferable by you, and is terminable at will by us at any time for any reason or for no reason.
You do not receive any license authorizing you to, and you shall not, assign, sublicense, distribute, redistribute, publish, compile, decompile, copy, modify, or reverse engineer, any content or technical means of the MegaMeeting.com website, the Services, our systems, or our software; and this restriction applies to both public areas and limited participation areas.
23. Content May Be Offensive
You recognize that MegaMeeting.com generally does not, and usually cannot, pre-screen, monitor, modify or control in real time the content of any communications or posting, either in Limited Participation areas or in publicly accessible areas. Therefore, you acknowledge that when you use any area of MegaMeeting.com there is a risk that you could be exposed to salacious, obscene, pornographic, hateful, misleading, fraudulent or other objectionable materials posted or otherwise communicated by other Members, participants, users, or visitors. You agree to accept this risk. You agree that MegaMeeting.com and Internet MegaMeeting, LLC shall have no responsibility or liability to you for any such exposure you may experience. MegaMeeting.com does not intentionally sponsor such offensive matter and you and all other users are required to agree not to engage in the conduct which is prohibited or restricted by this Agreement, but we do not, and ordinarily cannot, undertake to police such conduct by users.
24. Adult or Mature Content; No Access To Or Targeting of Children
There may be areas of MegaMeeting.com which are specifically designated for "adult" or "mature" content. You agree that you shall not transmit, post or otherwise communicate "adult" or "mature" content outside of such designated areas by use of MegaMeeting.com or the Services. You further agree that you shall not target children with, and shall not permit children to have access to, the areas designated as "adult" or "mature." If you are an adult and you object to such "adult or "mature" content you agree that you shall refrain from accessing such areas. Nothing in this section shall be construed as authorizing you to transmit, post, deliberately access, or otherwise communicate unlawful pornographic matter or hate matter by use of MegaMeeting.com or the Services, and you shall not do so.
25. You Warrant Your Authority For Use of Your Information
26. License Of Your User Information From You to Us
27. Your Editing and Deletion of Your User Information
MegaMeeting.com provides ways for you to edit Your Information and preferences. To do so, please log on using your Membership ID and password, then click on this link: youraccount.megameeting.com. This link enables you to state whether or not you want MegaMeeting.com to contact you about special offers and new products; it enables you to specify which categories of information you wish to receive or not receive, to exercise opt-out elections, or to request termination of your account.
You also may request that your MegaMeeting.com registration and Membership be terminated and deleted by sending an email to admin@MegaMeeting.com. To aid fraud prevention, termination and deletion may be deferred for up to 90 days after you instruct termination. Please see the topic Archival Retention of Your Information to read about what information may remain in archived records after termination of your registration and Membership.
28. Archival Retention of Your Information
In order to protect its systems against failures and loss of data and to enable resumption and continuation of the Services with minimal disruption and down time, MegaMeeting.com likely will maintain parallel, redundant, backup, or other archival systems ("Archived User Information.") which may vary from time to time depending upon the technology then in use by us. Such systems are designed to archive information which can be recalled. As a matter of course during operation of our systems Your Information is likely to be included in Archived User Information. When your registration and Membership are terminated in our currently active databases, there likely will remain pre-existing copies of Your Information in Archived User Information that is being held more or less independently of the currently active databases and from which Your Information therefore will not have been deleted. Reasonable efforts will be made to promptly include your termination request in the most current Archived User Information so that your termination instruction will be honored. However, it is possible that in the event of loss or damage of the currently active databases, older Archived User Information which still contains Your Information will be used to restore service, thereby resulting in restoration of Your Information in what then becomes the currently active databases. You agree to accept this risk and your sole remedy in such an event will be to again request termination of your registration and Membership. Even when you request termination of your account, it will be necessary for MegaMeeting.com to maintain some limited records of your transactions with MegaMeeting.com. For example, we may maintain some identifying information concerning you to keep a record of your request for termination of your account as well as records of our prior transactions with you for our financial and tax reporting purposes.
