THE RADIO GROUP, STUDSTILL MEDIA, AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUBSIDIARIES, DIVISIONS, OR
AGENTS (COLLECTIVELY, “TRG/SM,” “OUR,” “WE” or “US”) RESERVE THE RIGHT IN THEIR SOLE
DISCRETION TO DENY ACCESS TO ALL OR PART OF OUR WEBSITES
WE ALSO RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CHANGE ANY FEATURES ON OUR WEBSITES AND TO CHANGE THE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS AT ANY TIME, SO WE RECOMMEND VISITING OUR SITES FREQUENTLY TO
SEE OUR NEW AND EXCITING CHANGES AND TO VISIT THIS PAGE TO MAKE SURE THAT THE RULES
HAVE NOT CHANGED SINCE YOUR LAST VISIT.
HERE ARE THE SPECIFIC TERMS OF USE WHICH WE EXPECT YOU TO FOLLOW:
A. Ability to Accept Terms of Use. The Terms of Use form a legally binding contract between you and us. By using
any of the Websites, you affirm that you are either more than 18 years of age, or an emancipated minor, or possess
legal parental or guardian consent, and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations,
representations and responsibilities set forth in this Agreement, and to abide by and comply with these Terms of Use.
B. Accounts. To use some features of our Websites, you may need to create an account. To do so, you must provide
correct and complete information. This means you cannot use a false or misleading name or a name that you are not
authorized to use. Impersonating another person on our Websites is prohibited. You become entirely responsible for
the activity that occurs on your account (including any and all charges incurred while your account is being used and
liability for harm caused by statements made or materials posted under your account), so be sure to keep your
account password secure and tell us immediately if you think there has been unauthorized use of your account.
C. Our Use of Your Information. Our Privacy Policy tells you how we approach the collection, use or sharing of
Personal Information (as defined in the Privacy Policy). Also, by using our Websites, you agree that we are not
responsible for any of your Personal Information that you post publicly using our various services such as discussion
forums, blogs, or message boards. You can read more about all of this in our privacy policy.
D. Copyright. Everything on or used in connection with our Websites, including but not limited to text, images,
graphics, logos, audio and video content, software (collectively, “Content”) – with the exception of User Generated
Content as defined below – is owned by us and/or our affiliates, subsidiaries, licensors or suppliers. This means that
you cannot use the Content without our permission.
You may only use the Content online for purposes of visiting and using our websites, and only for your personal, noncommercial
use. This means that, unless we specify otherwise, you may not download any of our Content, give
copies to your friends, display the Content publicly, or charge anything for it (these are only meant to be examples
and are not an exhaustive list of things you can’t do with our Content). Also, you may not use the Content to construct
any kind of database or your own website.
E. Discussion Forum Rules: If the Website you are visiting has a discussion forum, bulletin board, chat room, blog,
message board, or other online community location (collectively “Discussion Forum”), the following rules apply:
o Your Profile information. When you create an account to use our Discussion Forums, you do not have to
disclose any of the “suggested” information like your gender, birth date and real name. You will, however, be
able to build a public profile which allows other members to see information that you submit to us. You can
privatize some of the information on your public profile, such as your e-mail address. To protect your safety,
please use your best judgment. We discourage divulging personal phone numbers and addresses or other
information that can be used to identify or locate you. Under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we
do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. Although you do not have to
disclose your birth date, if any information is disclosed in your profile or submissions that can identify you as a
child under the age of 13, we reserve the right to delete, edit, or reject such information, your entire profile or
your submission.
o Be courteous. In a community full of opinions and preferences, people always disagree. We do not tolerate
personal attacks, threats, verbal abuse, defamatory, obscene, hateful or slanderous language, or deliberate
disruption of discussions with repetitive messages, meaningless messages, or “spam.” You also are
prohibited from using the Websites to engage in any illegal conduct. Please contact our site/privacy
administrators at shall@theradiogroup.net if you have concerns about the conduct of other users on our
Websites. We reserve the right in our sole discretion to temporarily suspend or permanently block access by
anyone to all or part of our Websites at any time.
o Thread hijacking – or taking a Discussion Forum thread unreasonably off topic by discussing something
entirely unrelated to the discussion at hand, or submitting an unreasonable number of off-topic posts to a
thread that does not contribute to the value of a discussion – is disrespectful to other discussion forum
members and discourages members from participating in discussions. So please don’t hijack threads.
We encourage you to tell us if you believe a member is hijacking a thread. We will attempt to remind
users perceived as engaging in thread hijacking to start a new thread for their discussion or, in our sole
discretion, may temporarily suspend or permanently block access by such user to one or more of our
forums.
F. User Content Representations and Warranties: Our Websites may allow you to upload or share content on the
Websites so that other users can enjoy it. Do not upload or share anything on the Websites such as messages,
posts, text, film, video, audio, photographic, other recordings or images, or any other content (collectively, “User
Generated Content”) that you do not have a right to use and share on the Internet. By uploading or sharing any User
Generated Content on our websites, you represent and warrant that: (1) you are the original author or creator of the
User Generated Content and/or have full copyright, title and interest in and to any User Generated Content, (2) you
have the full power and authority to upload and/or share the User Generated Content on the Websites, (3) the use of
any element of the User Generated Content will not violate or infringe upon the trademarks, trade names, copyrights,
patents, rights or privacy or publicity or any other personal or proprietary rights of any person or entity, and will not
defame or libel any person or entity, (4) you will not publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage
TRG/SM or any third party; (5) you will not submit material that is, obscene, threatening, pornographic, harassing,
hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to
civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate, (6) you will not post or disseminate advertisements or
solicitations of business, or otherwise engage in commercial activity on our Websites, (7) you will not impersonate
another person, (8) you will not solicit any user for material gain, and (i) you will not produce spam throughout the
Website publicizing a product or event.
G. User Generated Content License. By providing us with any User Generated Content, you grant us and our
affiliates and related entities, a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and fully sublicensable
license to use, copy, reproduce, distribute, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, modify, adapt,
translate, archive, store, and create derivative works from such User Generated Content, in any form, format, or
medium, of any kind now known or later developed. Without limiting the generality of the previous sentence, you
authorize us to share the User Generated Content across all websites and online media platforms, newspapers,
television and radio broadcast stations, and any other media now or hereafter known affiliated with us and to use your
name, likeness and any other information in connection with our use of the material you provide. You waive any
moral rights you might have with respect to any User Generated Content you provide to us. You also grant us the
right to use any material, information, ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained in any communication you
provide or otherwise submit to us for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to, commercial purposes, and
developing, manufacturing and marketing commercial products using such information. All rights in this paragraph are
granted without the need for additional compensation of any sort to you.
H. Screening and Removal of User Generated Content. You acknowledge that we and/or our designees may or may
not pre-screen User Generated Content, and have the right (but not the obligation), in our sole discretion, to move,
remove, block, edit, or refuse any User Generated Content for any reason, including without limitation that such User
Generated Content violates these Terms of Use or is otherwise objectionable.
I. Risk from User Generated Content. We do not promise the accuracy, integrity, or quality of the User Generated
Content and do not endorse it in any manner. All User Generated Content provided on the Websites is the sole
responsibility of the person who provided it. You are entirely responsible for all User Generated Content that you
provide.
J. Third Party Sites: Our Websites may allow you to link to third-party websites. Those third-party websites do not
belong to us, and we have no control over, and assume no responsibility for, the content, accuracy, usefulness,
safety, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party websites. By using our Websites, you expressly relieve us and
our affiliates and agents of any and all liability arising from your use of any third-party websites linked to our
