5.1 User Content. The Service allows Users to create, post, share and store content, including but not limited to Topics, text, videos, and other material (collectively, “User Content”). You may not create, post, store or share any User Content that violates these Terms. Except for the license you grant below, and except to the extent that your User Content incorporates any Student Member User Content as described in Section 4.1(g), you retain all rights in and to your User Content, as between you and Flip. Except as described in Section 4.1(g), you are solely responsible for any User Content you create, post, share or store through the Service. We use best practices to back up User Content, but we cannot guarantee that User Content will be available in the event it is intentionally or accidentally deleted by another User, so we recommend you backup your User Content regularly.
5.2 License. To the extent necessary to provide the Service to you and others and to protect you and the Service, you grant to us a worldwide and royalty-free intellectual property license to use, view, download, reproduce, modify, create derivative works of, make copies of, retain, transmit, reformat, display, and distribute via communication tools your User Content on the Service. You represent and warrant that for the duration of these Terms, you have (and will have) all the rights necessary for your User Content that is uploaded, stored, or shared on or through the Service and that the collection, use, and retention of your User Content will not violate any law or rights of others. With respect to User Content, the above licenses terminate within a commercially reasonable time after your videos are removed or deleted from the Service.
5.3 Confidentiality. As Users are able to share User Content outside the Group or Topic to which it was submitted, Flip does not guarantee confidentiality with respect to your User Content.

We will not be liable to you or any third party for taking either of these actions.
