1.6. Content Available through the makeSEA® Services (makeSEA.com site and related software).
1.6.1. All Content (as defined herein) available on the Websites is provided on an AS-IS basis and Shared by makeSEA and/or its authorized users. You acknowledge and agree that makeSEA does not make any representations or warranties about the material, data, and information, such as data files, text, computer software, code, documentation, audio files or other sensory recordings, photographs, videos, or other images (collectively, the "Content") which You may have access to as part of, or through Your use of, the Services. Under no circumstances is makeSEA responsible or liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, any allegedly infringing Content, any errors or omissions in Content, how You use the Content, any unauthorized disclosure of and/or related to the Content, any invasion of privacy claims, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the posting or use of any Content posted, transmitted, linked from, or otherwise accessible through or made available via the Services.

Content that is offensive, indecent, objectionable, alleged to have infringed on a third party's intellectual property rights, or contrary to makeSEA's policies may be removed from the Website in makeSEA's sole discretion. Some Content may be designated as "makeSEA® Licensed Content," and You shall be bound by the terms stipulated by the associated License framework.
1.6.2. You agree that You are solely responsible for Your use and reuse of Content made available through the Services. You should review the terms of the license(s) and these Terms, before You use the Content so You know what You may and may not do with Shared Content.
1.6.3. When You register Content as Licensed Material in makeSEA, You are provided an opportunity to stipulate:
126.96.36.199. Attribution for that Content to other Licensed Material;
188.8.131.52. A custom metadata description model and metadata;
184.108.40.206. The permissions determining public or private access to the Licensed Material;
220.127.116.11. Whether or not the Licensed Material is available to all makeSEA® users (i.e., the public-at-large), or limited audiences;
18.104.22.168. The fee You elect to charge for an authorized makeSEA® user acquiring the Licensed Material for non-commercial, non-profit use, the "Limited Use License Fee", if any; and
22.214.171.124. The fee associated with the use, resale, or reuse of the Licensed Material, including physical reproduction of the object for sale, inclusion in another object design for sale, commercial use, and/or to produce any Adapted Material for sale, the "Reuse Royalty Fee", if any.
1.6.4. Licensed Material registered in makeSEA is version-specific, recorded on a per-file and per-entry basis, and uniquely serialized by version. Licensed Material may have many versions. The terms of license and royalty fees may be modified for different versions. Modifying the terms of a Licensed Material automatically will create a new version the Licensed Material. Any previous versions that are Licensed remain in force for that version for the duration of the applicable License term.
1.6.5. For transactions occurring within the makeSEA digital rights repository, makeSEA automatically ensures that any financial attribution, in the form of acknowledgement and financial payment for any applicable Limited Use License Fee and/or Reuse Royalty Fees is deducted from the transaction sale price for redistribution to the embedded Licensed Materials' Licensor(s), along with any applicable processing fees imposed by makeSEA (collectively, the "Processing Fees"), throughout the chain of the Licensed Material's entire lineage of attribution, for every download transaction.
1.6.6. You agree that makeSEA shall serve as the intermediary used to track and account for these fees and transactions. makeSEA shall provide transparent accounting and timely processing of said transactions. Fees vary by Licensed Material and/or collection and are stipulated at the time of upload, or when Content is versioned or modified in any meaningful way, and recorded for historical audit.
1.6.7. makeSEA permissions can be very granular and/or limited to a specific group or user. However, permissions generally can be considered falling into two basic categories as they relate to a given Licensed Material's visibility and access, which categories are as follows:
126.96.36.199. If the Licensed Material is designated as public, anyone can view or obtain the object. Object descriptions, images, and videos are viewable by anonymous visitor(s); OR
188.8.131.52. If the Licensed Material is designated as private, it is only viewable and accessible explicitly to allowed makeSEA® users or groups designated by the Licensor.
1.6.8. Users must always login to the Websites to obtain the makeSEA® Licensed Material, even when said Licensed Material may be available to any registered makeSEA user (the general public-at-large). makeSEA maintains an audit trail of these acquisitions for historical record and for purposes of tracking future object lineage, attribution and compensation, where applicable. makeSEA shall be the exclusive owner of all lineage records.
1.6.9. Users obtaining any Licensed Material must agree to abide by these Terms, the License and any applicable makeSEA® License terms assigned for each designated Licensed Material and/or collection thereof.
1.6.10. Licensors of Licensed Material that is embedded within or otherwise used to derive Adapted Material have limited visibility into the existence of said embedded content that is designated with private or limited permissions. If the Licensor of the Licensed Material does not have permission to directly obtain the Adapted Material, this visibility is limited to an awareness of the use of the Licensor's original Licensed Material, but not the ability to directly view or obtain the resulting Adapted Material. For any qualified transaction, any attributed Licensor shall receive attribution and compensation based on the terms of Reuse Royalty Fee stipulated by the associated original Content License, regardless of the permission to observe the resulting Adapted Material.
1.6.11. By default, Licensed Materials are assumed to be registered under the makeSEA® Attribution with Pay™ License (as defined in Section 2.1 below). However, alternate versions of the License may be available and designated for any given Licensed Materials by the Licensor, at its discretion. Licensor also may choose to modify the access permissions of registered Licensed Materials to restrict access to Licensed Materials in a manner that is complimentary to a given License restriction. This permissions mechanism should be considered independently of the designated License. Designating a more restrictive License for Licensed Materials in makeSEA does not automatically guarantee a resultant change in permissions or vice versa. However, makeSEA is designed to provide suggestions to Licensors to help inform this decision in a manner that is commensurate with the purpose and intent of the selected License restrictions.
1.6.12. makeSEA enables and helps Licensor(s) to track the terms of the makeSEA® License framework elected for Licensed Material by its Licensor. The makeSEA® dashboard and interface tools help to provide visibility into the acquisition and reuse of Licensed Material and to facilitate and enforce the rules designated by a given License.
1.6.13. The makeSEA®, Mash the Market®, Go Make Something®, Attribution with Pay™, and Fair Trade and Attribution™ are trademarks/service marks as well as its name, logos, icons, the makeSEA® software code, the registered U.S. patent for a Digital Media Marking System (U.S. Patent Reg. No. 9,904,773), and all Content (excluding user supplied Content) on the Website(s) (collectively the "makeSEA IP") are the sole and exclusive property of makeSEA and/or a makeSEA® principal.

22.214.171.124. upon express reinstatement by the Licensor.
For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 2.6 does not affect any right the Licensor may have to seek remedies for Your violations of this License. The Licensor also may offer the Licensed Material under separate terms or conditions or stop distributing the Licensed Material at any time; however, doing so will not terminate this License. You and Licensor acknowledge and agree that privity of contract as to the License terms for the Licensed Materials shall exist as between the identified Licensor and licensee and shall not include makeSEA.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, in the event the Licensed Material is alleged to infringe on a third party's intellectual property rights or encounters any other legal and/or ethical challenge, Licensor, licensee and You acknowledge and agree that the Content may be removed (temporarily or permanently) from the Services (and specifically the digital rights repository) in makeSEA's sole discretion. Upon such event and in its discretion, makeSEA may remove and/or modify the attribution lineage of the Licensed Material.

This License does not, and shall not be interpreted to, reduce, limit, restrict, or impose conditions on any use of the Licensed Material that could lawfully be made without permission under this License. To the maximum extent permissible by law, if any provision of this License is deemed unenforceable, it shall be automatically reformed to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable. If the provision cannot be reformed, it shall be severed from this License without affecting the enforceability of the remaining terms and conditions.
2.8.2. No term or condition of this License will be waived and no failure to comply consented to unless expressly agreed to by the Licensor. Nothing in this License constitutes or may be interpreted as a limitation upon, or waiver of, any privileges and immunities that apply to the Licensor or You, including from the legal processes of any jurisdiction or authority.
2.8.3. Except as to makeSEA® Licensed Content, makeSEA is not a party to the License between Licensor and You.
