1. Description of Services

Registered Users, below defined, are provided by CloudLoad.com with the capability to host image, video, and audio content, without limitation (Content). Registered Users must own and/or possess the legal rights to such content (User Content) in order that they may designate User Content for non-commercial Web distribution in venues such as blogs, message boards, online journals, personal or social networking sites, and online photo albums and also via the CloudLoad.com website. Occasions may arise when the Site or its Services may be unavailable due to scheduled maintenance or upgrades. Although every effort is made by CloudLoad.com to maintain continuous Site and Service user availability, occasionally emergency repairs may be necessary and events such as failed telecommunications services or equipment may occur. These events may be beyond the CloudLoad.comís control. Be advised that although it is the normal policy of CloudLoad.com to only remove content that is in violation of the Agreement, we may, in our discretion and with no notice, remove any Content for any reason. Certain legal requirements may require CloudLoad.com to store removed content and such removed content shall be irretrievable unless or until a valid court order is presented. For this reason and many others, users should preserve backup copies of User Content. CloudLoad.com specifically denies any responsibility for backup service, and is therefore not liable for any Service modifications, discontinuations, or suspensions as well as any loss of Content. Further discussion of this issue may be found in Section 8.
