While GBPI is not responsible for, and does not review or comment on the content of users' Virtual Offices, GBPI reserves the right in its discretion to (i) delete, move or edit Submissions that it, in its sole discretion, deems abusive, defamatory, obscene, inappropriate, or in violation of copyright or trademark laws, or otherwise unacceptable, or (ii) take any other action that GBPI deems necessary relating to use or misuse of the Service. GBPI may request confirmation of the copyright or trademark ownership from the submitter. If GBPI does not receive any such confirmation or if there are continued claims of copyright or trademark infringement relating to certain Submissions, GBPI reserves the right to share the submitter's account information with governmental organizations, law enforcement authorities or other third parties. If you, as a submitter, dispute any copyright or trademark infringement claims, we will share with you the contact information of any party claiming any such infringement. In the event of any such dispute, GBPI reserves the right to suspend the display, viewing or sharing of any Submissions until the issue has been resolved. You hereby grant to GBPI a non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use, publish, copy, modify, transmit, display and distribute your Submissions for the sole purpose of delivering the Service. In addition, you warrant that all moral rights in any Submissions and uploaded materials have been waived and do hereby waiver any such moral rights.
