We may also need to alter or discontinue the Service, or any part of it, in order to make performance or security improvements, make changes to comply with law, or prevent illegal activities on or abuse of our systems. These changes may affect all users, some users or even an individual user. When the Service requires or includes downloadable software, that software may update automatically on your device once a new version or feature is available, subject to your device settings. If we make material changes that negatively impact your use of the Service, we’ll provide you with reasonable advance notice, except in urgent situations such as preventing abuse, responding to legal requirements, or addressing security and operability issues.

In particular, the Content must: a) respect the rights of others, including privacy; b) not include third-party intellectual property (such as copyrighted material) unless you have permission from that party or are otherwise legally entitled to do so; c) not abuse or harm others or yourself (or threaten or encourage such abuse or harm), including against children; d) not mislead, be patently false, or defrauding; e) not illegally impersonate, defame, bully, harass, be obscene or stalk others; f) not incite violation of applicable laws; g) not abuse, harm, interfere with, or disrupt the services - for example, by accessing or using them in fraudulent or deceptive ways, introducing malware, or spamming, hacking, or bypassing our systems or protective measures; h) not affect the sovereignty and integrity of any State; i) not be likely to incite violence or disturb the maintenance of public order.

b. Rights you Grant You retain ownership rights in your Content. However, we do require you to grant certain rights to FanTV and other users of the Service, as described below.
i. License to FanTV
By providing Content to the Service, you grant to FanTV a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable license to use that Content (including to reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works, display and perform it). FanTV may only use that Content in connection with the Service and FanTV’s (and its successors and Affiliates) business, including for the purpose of promoting and redistributing part or all of the Service.
ii. License to Other Users You also grant other users of the Service a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to access your Content through the Service, and to use that Content, including to reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works, display and perform it, only as enabled by a feature of the Service (such as video playback or embeds). For clarity, this license does not grant any rights or permissions for a user to make use of your Content independent of the Service.
iii. Duration of License The licenses granted by you continue for a commercially reasonable period of time after you remove or delete your Content from the Service. You understand and agree, however, that FanTV may retain, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of your videos that have been removed or deleted.

d. Removing Your Content You may remove your Content from the Service at any time. You must remove your Content if you no longer have the rights required by these terms.
e. Removal of Content by FanTV If we reasonably believe that any of your Content (1) is in breach of this Agreement or (2) may cause harm to FanTV, our users, or third parties, we reserve the right to remove or take down that Content in accordance with applicable law. We will attempt to reasonably notify you with the reason for our action unless we reasonably believe that to do so: (a) would breach the law or the direction of a legal enforcement authority or would otherwise risk legal liability for FanTV or our Affiliates; (b) would compromise an investigation or the integrity or operation of the Service; or (c) would cause harm to any user, other third party, FanTV or our Affiliates.
f. Community Guidelines Strikes FanTV operates a system of “strikes” in respect of Content that violates these terms along with the FanTV Community Guidelines. Each strike comes with varying restrictions and may result in the permanent removal of your channel from FanTV. If you believe that a strike has been issued in error, you may appeal here. If your channel has been restricted due to a strike, you must not use another channel to circumvent these restrictions. Violation of this prohibition is a material breach of this Agreement and we reserve the right to terminate your FanTV account or your access to all or part of the Service.
Copyright Protection If you believe your copyright has been infringed on the Service, please send us an intimation.
We shall attempt to respond to your intimation of alleged copyright infringement according to the laws applicable. FanTV's policies provide for the termination, in appropriate circumstances.
Account Suspension & Termination a. Terminations by You You may stop using the Service at any time.

Terminations and Suspensions by FanTV FanTV reserves the right to suspend or terminate your FanTV account or your access to all or part of the Service if: (a) you materially or repeatedly breach this Agreement; (b) we are required to do so to comply with a legal requirement or a court order; or (c) we believe there has been conduct that creates (or could create) liability or harm to any user, other third party, FanTV or our Affiliates.
c. Notice for Termination or Suspension We will notify you with the reason for termination or suspension by FanTV unless we reasonably believe that to do so: (a) would violate the law or the direction of a legal enforcement authority; (b) would compromise an investigation; (c) would compromise the integrity, operation or security of the Service; or (d) would cause harm to any user, other third party, FanTV or our Affiliates. Where FanTV is terminating your use for Service changes, where reasonably possible, you will be provided with sufficient time to export your Content from the Service.
d. Effect of Account Suspension or Termination If your FanTV account is terminated or your access to the Service is restricted, you may continue using certain aspects of the Service (such as viewing only) without an account, and this Agreement will continue to apply to such use. If you believe that the termination or suspension of your FanTV account has been made in error, you can appeal here.
About Software in the Service a.
