9—Content Submitted or Otherwise Made
Available for Inclusion on the Service
You are solely responsible for the content of your information,
and SVBS acts merely as a conduit for its distribution and
publication. You agree to remove out-of-date and inaccurate listings
and content you have submitted to the Site.
We have the right, in our sole discretion, to accept or reject
content for inclusion on the Service at any time.
SVBS does not claim ownership of Content you submit or make
available for inclusion on the Service. However, with respect to
Content you submit or make available for inclusion on publicly
accessible areas of the Service, you grant SVBS the following
world-wide, royalty free and non-exclusive license(s), as
a. With respect to Content you submit or make available for
inclusion on publicly accessible areas of SVBS Groups, the license
to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publicly perform and
publicly display such Content on the Service solely for the purposes
of providing and promoting the specific SVBS Group to which such
Content was submitted or made available. This license exists only
for as long as you elect to continue to include such Content on the
Service and will terminate at the time you remove or SVBS removes
such Content from the Service.
b. With respect to photos, graphics, audio or video you submit or
make available for inclusion on publicly accessible area of the
Service, the license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt,
publicly perform and publicly display such Content on the Service

We use techniques to verify the accuracy of the information our
users provide us when they register on the Site. However, because
user verification on the Internet is difficult, SVBS cannot and
does not confirm each user's purported identity. You may also wish
to consider using a third party escrow service or services that
provide additional user verification.
In the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you
release SVBS (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries,
joint venturers, shareholders, owners and employees) from claims,
demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and
nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and
undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such
disputes. If you are a California resident, or the business entity
you represent is subject to California law, you waive California
Civil Code §1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to
claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his
favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him
must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
