This license is revocable at any time.

The Site may include discussion forums, blogs, profiles, product reviews or other interactive features or areas, including BLE's online community (collectively, "Interactive Areas"), in which you or other users create, post, transmit or store any content, such as text, music, sound, photos, video, graphics or code on the Site ("User Content"). User Content is publicly-viewable and includes your profile information and any content you post pursuant to your profile, but it does not include your BLE account information (also known as "Your BLE Online Account" or "Your Account") or information you submit in order to make a purchase. You agree that you are solely responsible for your User Content and for your use of such Interactive Areas, and that you use the Interactive Areas at your own risk.

• User Content that is unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, lewd, suggestive, harassing, threatening, abusive, inflammatory, fraudulent or otherwise objectionable;

If you become aware of User Content that violates these Terms (with the exception of copyright and trademark infringement which is addressed in the above sections), you may report it by emailing us. Enforcement of the Terms, however, is solely in our discretion and the absence of enforcement of these Terms in some instances does not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce the Terms in other instances. In addition, these Terms do not create any private right of action on the part of any third party or any reasonable expectation or promise that the Site will not contain any content that is prohibited by such Terms. Although BLE has no obligation to screen, edit or monitor any of the User Content posted on the Site, BLE reserves the right, and has absolute discretion, to remove, screen or edit any User Content posted or stored on the Site at any time and for any reason without notice, and you are solely responsible for creating backup copies and replacing any User Content you post or store on the Site at your sole cost and expense.
