6. Unsolicited submissions.

Belong is pleased to hear from its visitors and welcomes your comments regarding Belong products and services. If Belong sponsors a contest or sweepstakes that expressly invites users to submit material for consideration and that contest is governed by a set of Official Rules, then to the extent there is a conflict between the terms of this Paragraph and the terms of such Official Rules, the Official Rules will govern the use of material that is submitted as part of the contest or sweepstakes entry mechanic.


Outside of that type of contest or sweepstakes entry mechanic, however, Belong’s long-standing company policy does not allow it to accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions, or materials other than those it has specifically requested. While we value your feedback on our services, we request that you be specific in your comments on those services and products, and that you not submit any creative ideas, suggestions or materials, including but not limited to original ideas, concepts, or artwork. We hope you will understand that it is the intent of this policy to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by Belong’s or its affiliates professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. Accordingly, we ask that you do not send us any original creative materials such as show designs, photographs, drawings, or original artwork that you expect to be compensated for or that you would like to keep private. If you nevertheless choose to make any such submission, Belong may freely use the submission, in whole or in part, for any purpose without any obligation to you.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if you send or post a submission or if you send us creative suggestions, ideas, notes, photographs, drawings, concepts, or any other information (each, a “Submission” and collectively, the “Submissions”) despite our request that you not send us any unsolicited Submissions or other creative materials, the Submission will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary in each instance.

You hereby acknowledge and agree that your relationship with Belong is not a confidential, fiduciary, or other special relationship, and that your decision to submit any material to Belong does not place Belong in a position that is any different from the position held by members of the general public with regard to your Submission. You understand and acknowledge that Belong has wide access to ideas, designs, and other materials, and that new ideas are constantly being submitted to it or being developed by Belong’s own employees.

18. Governing Law; Arbitration; Miscellaneous.
  • A. These Terms contains the entire understanding and agreement between you and Belong concerning the Belong Service and supersedes any and all prior or inconsistent understandings relating to the Belong Service and your use thereof. These Terms cannot be changed orally. If any provision of these Terms is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, this shall not affect any other provisions and these Terms shall be deemed amended to the extent necessary to make it legal, valid and enforceable. Any provision which must survive in order to allow us to enforce its meaning shall survive the termination of these Terms; however, no action arising out of these Terms or your use of the Belong Service, regardless of form or the basis of the claim, may be brought by you more than one year after the cause of action has arisen (or if multiple causes, from the date the first such case arose). The failure of Belong to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision.
  • B. These Terms and your use of the Belong Service is governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the internal substantive laws of the State of New York (notwithstanding the state's conflict of laws provisions) applicable to contracts made, executed and wholly performed in New York. You specifically agree and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the State and Federal Courts situated in the State and County of New York and agree you shall not object to such jurisdiction or venue on the grounds of lack of personal jurisdiction, forum non conveniens or otherwise. IN ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING COMMENCED TO ENFORCE ANY RIGHT OR OBLIGATION OF THE PARTIES UNDER THESE TERMS OF USE, YOUR USE OF THE BELONG SERVICE OR WITH RESPECT TO THE SUBJECT MATTER HEREOF, YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY NOW HAVE OR HEREAFTER POSSESS TO A TRIAL BY JURY.
  • C. By using the Belong Service in any way, you unconditionally consent and agree that: (1) any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) you may have against Belong and/or its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates and each of their respective members, officers, directors and employees (all such individuals and entities collectively referred to herein as the “Belong Entities”) arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with the Belong Service or the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by JAMS and conducted before a sole arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS; (2) this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16; (3) the arbitration shall be held in New York, New York; (4) the arbitrator’s decision shall be controlled by the terms and conditions of these Terms and any of the other agreements referenced herein that the applicable user may have entered into in connection with the Belong Service; (5) the arbitrator shall apply New York law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (6) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, arbitration can decide only your and/or the applicable Belong Entity’s individual claims; the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (7) the arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive damages against you or any Belong Entity; (8) in the event that the administrative fees and deposits that must be paid to initiate arbitration against any Belong Entity exceed $125 USD, and you are unable (or not required under the rules of JAMS) to pay any fees and deposits that exceed this amount, Belong agrees to pay them and/or forward them on your behalf, subject to ultimate allocation by the arbitrator. In addition, if you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Belong will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and (9) with the exception of subpart (6) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules of JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (6) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor Belong shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. For more information on JAMS and/or the rules of JAMS, visit their website at www.jamsadr.com.
  • D. To the extent that there is a conflict between these Terms and the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms shall govern.
  • E. The Belong Service is controlled by Belong from its offices in the U.S. Belong makes no representation or warranty that the Belong Service or Content contained on or made available in connection therewith is legal, appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who choose to access the Belong Service from other locations do so at their own risk and are responsible for compliance with any and all local laws, rules and regulation, if and to the extent local laws, rules and regulations are applicable. No software made available in connection with the Belong Service may be downloaded, exported or re-exported into (or to a national or resident of) any countries that are subject to U.S. export restrictions.
  • F. These Terms constitute the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof. These Terms may not be amended, nor any obligation waived, without Belong’s written authorization. Any failure to enforce any provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver thereof or of any other provision thereof. If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

These Terms were last modified on the date indicated above and are effective immediately.
