You shall not use the Web Site for any other purpose, including any other commercial purpose, without the express prior written consent of S.P. Food Services, Inc. (“S.P.”). This is the grant of a license, not a transfer of title, and under this license you may not:

        • modify or copy the materials;

        • attempt to decompile or reverse engineer any software contained on the Web Site;
        • remove any copyright or other proprietary notations from the materials; or
        • transfer the materials to another person or “mirror” the materials on any other server.
      • This license shall automatically terminate if you violate any of these restrictions and may be terminated by S.P. at any time. Upon terminating your viewing of these materials or upon the termination of this license, you must destroy any downloaded materials in your possession whether in electronic or printed format.
      • Disclaimer.

      • User Submissions and Unsolicited Submissions Policy.

        S.P. is interested in hearing from you. We welcome your comments about our products and services. However, it is the policy of S.P. (which term includes its franchisees and its affiliated and related entities) not to accept or consider unsolicited creative, production-related, advertising, promotional, or other materials of any kind. S.P. develops the concepts and ideas for use in advertising, promotion, public relations, and other matters appropriate to promote its products. S.P. will not consider suggestions or ideas submitted to it without solicitation. Unless expressly invited or authorized by S.P. to do so (see below regarding “Solicited Submissions”), do not send us any creative materials, such as stories, promotional or commercial ideas, slogans, music, or original art work for any reason. We hope you will understand that our intent is to avoid possible misunderstandings when our professional staff develops projects that might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work.

        From time to time, areas of the Web Site may expressly solicit submissions of ideas, concepts, scripts, stories, pictures, or other potential content from you (“Solicited Submissions”). When this is the case, you should carefully read any specific rules or other terms and conditions that appear elsewhere on the Web Site that govern these submissions (“Special Terms”), since they can affect your rights. If no Special Terms govern the Solicited Submissions, then this Section 10 will apply in full to any Solicited Submissions you make.

        All images, pictures, drawings, photographs, reviews, comments, feedback, postcards, suggestions, ideas, recipes, themes, dialogue, concepts, scripts, scenes, and advertising, promotional, or marketing materials of any kind, and any other submissions disclosed, submitted or offered to S.P. by you (including postings on chat rooms, boards, and contests) whether or not solicited by S.P., on or by this Web Site or otherwise disclosed, submitted or offered in connection with your use of this Web Site or through any other medium (collectively, the "Submissions") shall be and remain S.P.'s property. Such disclosure, submission or offer of any Submissions shall constitute an assignment to S.P. of all worldwide right, title, and interest in the Submissions and all copyrights, trademark rights, patent rights, trade secret rights, and other intellectual property rights in the Submissions. S.P. will own exclusively all such rights, title, and interest and shall not be limited in any way in its use, commercial or otherwise, of any Submissions. S.P. will be entitled to use, reproduce, disclose, modify, adapt, create derivative works from, publish, publicly perform, display and distribute for any purpose whatsoever any Submissions you submit, without restriction and without compensating you in any way. S.P. will incur no liability to you (and you hereby release S.P. from any liability) as a result of any similarities to any Submission that may appear on the Web Site and in future advertising, marketing, promotions, goods, services, trademarks, original works of authorship, or operations of S.P. You waive and agree not to enforce against S.P. any moral rights or other similar non-transferable rights that may be held by you in any Submission. S.P. is and shall be under no obligation (1) to maintain any Submissions in confidence; (2) to pay to you any compensation for any Submissions; or (3) to respond to any of your Submissions. You agree, represent and warrant that any Submissions submitted by you to the Web Site will not violate this Terms and Conditions of Usage policy or any right of any third party, including copyright, trademark, privacy or other personal or proprietary right(s), and will not cause injury to any person or entity. You further agree that no Submissions submitted by you to the Web Site will be or contain libelous or otherwise unlawful, threatening, abusive or obscene material, or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings or any form of "spam." S.P. reserves the right (but not the obligation) to monitor and edit or remove any Submissions submitted to the Web Site. You grant S.P. the right to use the name that you submit in connection with any Submissions. You agree not to use a false email address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of any Submissions you submit. S.P. and its affiliates take no responsibility and assume no liability for any Submissions submitted by you or any third party.

      • Indemnification.

        You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless S.P., its franchisees, employees, representatives, and its affiliates from and against any and all claims, damages, costs and expenses, including attorneys' fees, arising from or related to your use of the Web Site, any Submissions you make, or from any breach by you of any agreement, representation, or warranty made by you herein. The terms of this section shall survive the voluntary or involuntary termination of your use of the Web Site for any reason.

      • Governing Law

        Any claim relating to the Web Site shall be governed by the laws of the State of Alabama without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

      Cookies are small data files that are stored by your web browser when you visit our website. To obtain aggregate marketing information to assist us in website traffic analysis, we (or companies with which we contract) may use cookies to obtain non-personal information about your use of our website, such as the number and timing of visits, pages visited, the sequence of pages visited, the search engine or other source of your visits to the website, and any actions taken while on the website. We may aggregate this data to analyze the viewing habits of our website visitors and to assist us in the future design and structure of our website in order to make our visitors’ use of the site more beneficial, efficient, and enjoyable, but it will not be associated with any personally identifiable information. We (or companies with which we contract) also may use pixel tags, which are tiny graphic images, to tell us which pages of our website you have visited.
