3. Ownership and License Rights to Content on the Platform
a. Ownership of Content. Authorized Users retain ownership of all intellectual property rights in the information and content uploaded by them to the Platform (“User Content”), and Nuvolex and/or third parties retain ownership of all intellectual property rights in all Content other than User Content.
b. User Content License to Nuvolex.

The rights each Authorized User grants in this license are for the limited purpose of operating the Platform in accordance with their functionality, improving the Platform, and allowing Nuvolex to develop a new Platform. The reference in this license to “derivative works” is not intended to give Nuvolex itself a right to make substantive editorial changes or derivations, but does enable Authorized Users to redistribute User Content from one area to another in a manner that allows Authorized Users to, e.g., add their own text or other content to another Authorized User’s User Content.
c. Each Authorized User also agrees that this license includes the right for Nuvolex to make all User Content available to third parties selected by Nuvolex, so that those third parties support Nuvolex in its provision of the Platform. This license to your User Content continues even if the Authorized User stops using the Platform.
d. Each Authorized User also agrees that it will respect the intellectual property rights of others, and represent that it has all of the necessary rights to grant Nuvolex this license for all User Content it submits to the Platform.
e. Content License to Authorized Users. Nuvolex grants each Authorized User a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, and non-transferable license to download, store, view, display, perform, redistribute, and create derivative works of User Content solely in connection with such Authorized User’s use of, and in accordance with the functionality and restrictions of, the Platform.
4. Client Responsibilities

Nuvolex reserves the right, with notice to Client, to change the password to the Master Account or any User Account, if Nuvolex believes that the applicable password is no longer secure.
If Client registered for a trial use of the Platform (the period specified as applicable to this trial use in connection with your trial enrollment, the “Trial Period”), Client must decide to purchase the Platform within the Trial Period in order to retain any content posted or uploaded by Authorized Users under Client’s account during the Trial Period.
