1. Parties to This Contract.
Live Cloud Depositions, LLC, a California limited liability company, is the party with whom you are contracting. Live Cloud Depositions, LLC sometimes is referred to as "we" or "us" or "our" or “LiveLitigation" in this Agreement, except as is otherwise expressly stated in particular sections. LiveLitigation is service marks, trademarks and trade names of Live Cloud Depositions, LLC.
"You" means any person who uses the LiveLitigation web site or any of the Services of LiveLitigation. We employ the word “User" to apply to anyone who accesses or otherwise utilizes the Products or Services, including without limitation a “Control Person", “Host", administrator, “Moderator", "User", “Attendee", “invitee", Stream Manager, stenographer, videographer, and "participant" (in a Hosted Session) or a "visitor" (to a web site or page), as the particular case may be. In general, you may contract with us by clicking on-screen “I agree" or words of similar import when you seek to access or use Products or Services of LiveLitigation and this license agreement is presented for your acceptance. The scope of your rights and duties under this agreement depend upon the particular status for which you have contracted with us. You agree that this is an agreement between independent contractors, and it is not a joint venture, partnership, employer-employee, agent-principal, or franchisor-franchisee relationship. Neither you nor Live Cloud Depositions, LLC is authorized to bind the other to any contract. This agreement governs only the use of LiveLitigation products and services and it does not give us any managerial or regulatory authority over the conduct of your business, your products or your services. You and we agree that this agreement shall be construed and limited such that it is not a franchise, you are not a franchisee, and LiveLitigation is not a franchisor.
“Your Users" mean persons that You, by use of Your license and access, authorize or enable to use the Services of LiveLitigation, even if any such person has misappropriated or otherwise misused Your Communications Channels and Bandwidth (as defined in Section 5.1 below) or Your User ID or Your password or the ID or password of any of Your employees, agents, guests, invitees or participants.
An “Administrator" is a person to whom you have given broad authority and the top level power to grant access to Hosts, Moderators, Stream Managers, and Attendees under LiveLitigation products. Generally, the Administrator will grant such powers via a User ID and password and will delegate discretionary powers of varying degrees under the LiveLitigation products. An Administrator can exercise directly the subordinate powers of Host, Moderator, Stream Manager, and Attendee.
An “Attendee" is a person empowered by an Administrator or a Host to enter into and participate in a LiveLitigation event, either under eSuite streaming on the internet, or under StenoDirect/LocalRealtime operating on your Local Area Network. An Attendee must provide an email address to receive an invitation through eSuite or must enable the Attendee’s device to join a LAN using LocalRealtime.
A “Control Person" means any Administrator, Host, Moderator or Stream Manager.
A “Host" is a person whom an Administrator has empowered to schedule, create, edit, and delete events within the LiveLitigation product. To enable Attendees to join a LiveLitigation event, a Host is empowered to issue to each prospective Attendee an invitation with a hyperlink that has an embedded “Key" which enables an Attendee to access a Live Deposition event by clicking on the hyperlink. A Host can control and terminate access by Attendees.
A “Key" is a computer-readable, security code which grants access to a particular LiveLitigation event. There generally will be multiple, partially unique Keys to a particular event which grant varying degrees of access and control over the event. A unique User ID and password will be associated with each Key to a particular LiveLitigation event. Thus, any Control Person can identify the User IDs that are active in a particular LiveLitigation event.
A “Moderator" is a person an Administrator has empowered to view or join into a LiveLitigation event without an invitation from a Host. A Moderator can access and view all User IDs associated with Keys to a particular LiveLitigation event and thus can determine what User IDs are authorized and which authorized User IDs are active in the event. A Moderator can act as a Host or Stream Manager.
A “Stream Manager" is a person who has been given an invitation with a hyperlink and a non-embedded Key which the Stream Manager must manually input to access a LiveLitigation event. A Stream Manager can access and view all User Ids associated with Keys to a LiveLitigation event to which that Stream Manager has been granted access by a Host or Administrator.
These definitions of various roles under the LiveLitigation products are descriptive only. The precise powers associated with the various roles are defined by the proprietary software computer code of the various LiveLitigation products, which controls over these descriptions. Please refer to the training materials and the internal instructions within the particular products for their use and operation. LiveLitigation products routinely are reviewed, adjusted and upgraded such that the precise powers associated with particular roles will change from time to time.

You are entirely responsible for communications content transmitted via your use of LiveLitigation’s products or services. You agree (a) that you and your Users, shall make certain to fully exit from accounts at the end of each session, and (b) that You and Your Users shall immediately notify LiveLitigation in writing (which may be by confirmed email to admin@LiveLitigation.com) if there is any unauthorized use of an account or password or other security breach. LiveLitigation and Live Cloud Deposition, LLC, and its employees, agents, affiliates and contractors shall not be liable for any cost, loss, damage, liability or claim which arises or is alleged to arise from failure to comply with this section.

(i) For physical and network security of computers of You and Your

(iii) For communication content that You and Your Users (including Unauthorized Users) transmit without effective encryption via any LiveLitigation products and services.

You agree that you shall immediately notify LiveLitigation in writing (which may be by confirmed email to admin@LiveLitigation.com) if there is any unauthorized use of a User ID, account designation, or password of You or of any of Your Users or any other security breach (even if such breach is or may be a breach in LiveLitigation Communications and Bandwidth). LiveLitigation shall not be liable for any cost, loss, damage or liability which arises or is alleged to arise from Your failure to comply with this section.
5.5. "Your Communications Content"
"Your Communications Content" is the content and form of any information that you or Your Users post, communicate, transmit, or direct to each other or to any third party in any manner through the use of LiveLitigation, or the Products or the Services, or the LiveLitigation Internet domain, or any sub domain, or any linked domain that is owned, controlled or operated by Live Cloud Depositions, LLC. You are solely responsible for the accuracy, lawfulness, risks and use of the content of Your Communications Content.

You and your correspondents are solely responsible for the accuracy, lawfulness, risks and use of the content of Your Correspondents' Communications.
5.7. Monitoring, Modification, Deletion.
LiveLitigation generally does not monitor, select or modify Your Communications Content or Your Correspondents' Communications Content, but does reserve the right to delete or refuse to transmit matter as it deems necessary to comply with applicable law. LiveLitigation technicians may join a session to assist a participant, for quality control or for product improvement.
Security and Encryption of Communications Content of You and
You and Your Users shall be solely and exclusively responsible, and LiveLitigation's contractors shall have absolutely no responsibility, for the content of communications which is transmitted via Your use of LiveLitigation and other LiveLitigation Products and Services through computers employed by You and Your Users (“Communications Content of You and Your Users" or “Your Communications Content").
If You or Your Users wish to keep the content of communications secure, then You or Your Users must encrypt such information, and maintain the security of encryption codes and keys, independently of Live Deposition. This is because Live Deposition does not control the security of Your Communications Channels and Bandwidth or the channels and bandwidth of third parties that may be used in transmissions to and from LiveLitigation Communications Channels and Bandwidth. You acknowledge that transmission of information on the internet inherently is not wholly secure. If You or Your User transmits unencrypted communications content, then as between LiveLitigation and You and Your Users there shall be a presumption affecting the burden of producing evidence that such communications content was not confidential. You agree that Live Deposition and its computer-server contractors are not insurers or guarantors of the confidentiality and security of the communications content, USER IDs, and passwords of You and Your Users. You acknowledge that You and Your Users can purchase insurance to insure against breaches of data security and confidentiality. You acknowledge and agree on behalf of yourself and Your Users that Live Deposition need not undertake any burden of proving where in the chain of possession and transmission a breach of the confidentiality or security of Your Communications Content occurred. You agree that if You or Your User claims that a breach of the security or confidentiality of Your Communications Content occurred in LiveLitigation Communications Channels and Bandwidth or occurred during LiveLitigation recording and storage, then You and Your User must bear the burden of proving such claim by clear and convincing evidence.
If you desire a higher level of confidentiality of Communications Content of You and Your Users, then you must obtain a separate written commitment to such higher level of confidentiality in a writing signed by an LLC manager of Live Cloud Depositions, LLC.
5.9. Recording and Storage by LiveLitigation.
Live Deposition does not undertake to routinely record and store any communications content of You and Your Users except in a writing signed by an authorized Live Deposition officer which states the terms and conditions and limitations for such recordation and storage.
Uploaded Files. LiveLitigation may provide the capacity to
upload and temporarily store electronic files or documents for use
in LiveLitigation events, but we do not provide permanent, or
archival storage. You and Your Users must make provisions,
independently of LiveLitigation, for longer term and archival
storage of original documents and files (for example, and without
limitation, deposition exhibits and transcripts). We reserve the
right and power to automatically or manually delete such uploaded
materials after a period of time which may be as little as forty
eight hours after recording. It is the responsibility of You and
Your Users to promptly download any such stored documents and
files for any desired preservation.
Streaming Content. LiveLitigation reserves the right to offer recording and temporary storage of streaming Communications Content, such as, for example, live depositions or conferences. You can only obtain such recording and temporary storage of streaming content in a writing signed by an authorized Live Deposition officer which states the terms and conditions and limitations for such recordation and storage and you must make separate provisions for longer term and archival storage of such recorded streaming Communications Content. Such writing may be an addendum to this Agreement.
Limitations, Waivers and Indemnities. Uploading, recording and storage are subject to the damage limitations, liability waivers and indemnity provisions of this Agreement.
Incidental, Transient Storage. You acknowledge that there may be transient storage incidental to computer operations to transmit information through LiveLitigation Communications and Bandwidth (such as, for non-limiting example, temporary storage in computer Random Access Memory (“RAM") or buffers). You agree that LiveLitigation shall not have any duty to record, store or preserve such transient information absent an express, prior written undertaking by LiveLitigation to record and store it. You agree that LiveLitigation may purge or destroy such transient information either automatically or manually.
5.10. Litigation Holds.
You agree that if a burden is imposed upon LiveLitigation to store, hold or produce information arising from use by You or Your User of LiveLitigation products or services, and related to a claim, dispute or legal proceeding, then you shall bear and pay to LiveLitigation and LiveLitigation’s agents and contractors the reasonable, market worth of labor, costs and expenses (including without limitation, fees and charges of experts, advisors and attorneys), of collecting, holding, storing and producing such information. You agree that LiveLitigation shall not have any duty to initiate litigation holds unless You have given timely, written notice to an authorized LLC manager of Live Deposition, LLC of the content, need, and scope of hold required. You agree that due to the high velocity and volume of information, and the necessity for Live Deposition to operate automated and semi-automated deletion of data to avoid computer-server overload, it shall be Your burden to give timely notice to Live Deposition, LLC.
5.12. Links to Websites of Other Persons.
LiveLitigation may provide links to websites of persons other than LiveLitigation and Live Cloud Depositions, LLC. Those links to other persons are provided solely as a courtesy without any representation or warranty as to their content, use, or terms.

If you are a child (under the age of 18 years), or lack legal competency, then the Products and Services of LiveLitigation are not available to you; do not use the Products or Services. If you are under the age of 18, or are subject to a legal guardianship, then you can use LiveLitigation and the Products and Services only if your legal guardian or representative first agrees with us that you may use LiveLitigation and the Products and Services and then supervises your use of LiveLitigation and the Services.

If the Website or Products or Services of LiveLitigation are not lawful in the nation, state, or other jurisdiction where you are located, then do not use or attempt to use LiveLitigation or the Products or Services in that place. If you are accessing or using LiveLitigation or the Products or Services in any nation, state or other jurisdiction which restricts such access or usage, then you shall abide by the laws of that place and refrain from any access or use as required by the laws of the applicable jurisdiction.

10. Termination of This Agreement.
This is an agreement at will, which either you or we may terminate, with or without cause. You may terminate this Agreement only by giving written notice of termination to LiveLitigation using the online forms at https://www.livelitigation.com/cancel-remote.html or at https://www.livelitigation.com/cancel-local.html and then ceasing all further use of LiveLitigation and the Services. If you decide after you have entered into this Agreement that you no longer wish to agree with any term or condition of this Agreement, as it may be amended from time to time, then your only remedy is to terminate this Agreement by written notice, to cease use, and to refrain from further use of LiveLitigation and its Services.
If you terminate this Agreement then you must cease all use of, and remove from your computer(s), any software associated with LiveLitigation, the Products and the Services; and you must destroy any copies of such software, except only that you shall not destroy matter which is reasonably likely to be or to become material evidence in judicial or arbitration proceedings.
If you violate any terms or conditions of this Agreement then we may terminate this Agreement without prior notice to you.
Following termination of this Agreement this Agreement will survive for the limited purpose of governing rights, obligations and responsibilities which arise from events and transactions that occurred prior to such termination; but no right will survive for continued or future use of LiveLitigation or Products or the Services. For example, if you incur charges, liabilities, or obligations to LiveLitigation which have not yet been paid or discharged at the time you terminate then you remain obligated to pay such charges and to discharge such liabilities and obligations after you terminate. As a further example, your obligations to respect our copyrights, trademarks, and other intellectual property continue after termination.
If you give written notice of termination, but continue or resume use of LiveLitigation or Products or the Services then LiveLitigation may elect in its sole discretion to deem your termination to be ineffective, but retains its rights to immediately terminate, block or restrict your use without notice.
11. Your User's Information; Your Information.
As a user you and your computer necessarily must supply information to access, register and use LiveLitigation and the Services. You may choose, or your computer may automatically function, to send information to us, or exchange it with us and others during the course of your use of LiveLitigation and the Services. Your User's Information (also called "Your Information") is defined for the purposes of this Agreement to mean the content and the form of any and all information which you or your computer provide to us, or cause or permit other persons to transmit to us, in connection with:
(i) your accessing of the LiveLitigation domain, or any sub
domains or linked domains of Live Cloud Depositions, LLC., or the
LiveLitigation website or pages;
(ii) your logging on to LiveLitigation;
(iii) your registration to become a User of LiveLitigation or the Products or Services;
(iv) any email or other communications you have with LiveLitigation or Live Cloud Depositions, LLC or its employees or agents; and
(v) your financial and other transactions with LiveLitigation or Live Cloud Depositions, LLC.
"Your User's Information" is distinguished from, and does not include, communications between you and third parties by use of LiveLitigation and the Services, which are defined under the topics "Your Communications Content" and "Your Correspondents' Communications Content."
12. Information We Receive, Switch and Transmit.
LiveLitigation provides systems for the receipt, switching and transmission of Your Communications Content and Your Correspondents' Communications Content during your sessions using the Services. This is similar in some respects to the switching of telephone calls.
12.1. Limited Participation Sessions, Control Persons and Attendees.
Control Persons of Limited Participation Sessions.
LiveLitigation records both the registration information of your
designated Control Persons (Administrator, Host, Moderator, or
Stream Manager) and each Control Person’s User ID and email
address because only a person registered as a User of
LiveLitigation can act as a Control Person of a eSuite session. As
a necessary condition of participation in a Limited Participation
session, LiveLitigation requires that each other participant
supply LiveLitigation with a user name and a valid, functional
email address with reference to which communications will be
switched during that particular session. In a
StenoDirect/LocalRealtime session, the user ID is supplied by the
Attendee to the Control Person. The password and LAN access code
is supplied by the Control Person to each of the Attendees.
eSuite - During a session using eSuite, LiveLitigation receives and transfers through its computer servers communications only among the Control Person(s) and other participants (“Attendees") who have been approved by a Control Person to participate in that particular private session or conference ("Limited Participation" session).
LocalRealtime - Is licensed to persons who operate that software on computer servers owned or controlled by such person, not under the control of Live Cloud Depositions, LLC. In general, the communications content of the session is switched and controlled through at least one computer server operated by that person, and does not pass through servers of Live Cloud Depositions, LLC.
12.1.2. Non-Control Participants (“Attendees") in Limited Participation Sessions. To participate in a Limited Participation session of eSuite a prospective participant must first log onto the LiveLitigation system by providing LiveLitigation with the prospective participant's user name and a valid, functional email address. LiveLitigation records the user name and email address supplied during log-on by each prospective participant in a Limited Participation session. LiveLitigation does not require that any participant in a Limited Participation session, other than the Control Person, be registered with LiveLitigation. LiveLitigation does not undertake to verify the validity or functionality of the email address provided by a prospective participant. However, all Users and participants are required to provide valid, functional email addresses, the products and services may not function correctly without them, and it is a violation of this Agreement for a Control Person, Attendee or participant to supply a non-functional, fake, or impersonated email address and user name. Each prospective participant's log-on information will be recorded by LiveLitigation. Prospective participants either (1) can be invited to participate in a particular Limited Participation session through an email initiated by the Control Person through LiveLitigation's system, or (2) can be informed of the Control Person’s email and scheduled session by means independent of LiveLitigation's system. The prospective participant then must either receive an email invite from a LiveLitigation Control Person, or be given a Key to join the event if not using the email invite, or must be given the LAN password and meeting password if joining a LocalRealtime event.
13. IP Addresses Received and Recorded.
Every User's browser as part of the automatic network protocol reports its IP (Internet Port) address to the LiveLitigation website each time a web page is viewed and we may record and store some or all of these IP addresses as well as a listing of the web pages requested using a particular IP address. Your IP address may be stored in our data base when you register for User status or otherwise log into an event.
14. LiveLitigation Is Not Obliged to Verify User Names, Email
Addresses or Identities.
Because a user name and email address are used to route communications among computers, and because computers communicate with each other by coded network addresses, the combination of a user name and email address might, but does not necessarily, identify a particular person. LiveLitigation ordinarily does not and usually cannot verify or authenticate email addresses and does not undertake any obligation to you to do so. LiveLitigation does not and usually cannot verify or control the identity of the natural persons who have access to or control the particular computers that are identified by an IP address or email address supplied to LiveLitigation for computer-routing purposes and we do not undertake any obligation to you to do so.
It is the responsibility and risk of the Control Person to use whatever identification measures the Control Person thinks appropriate and prudent when the Control Person supplies its registered address for delivery to prospective participants and when the Control Person approves a particular user name and email address for participation in a 's particular Limited Participation session. Similarly, it is the responsibility and risk of a prospective participant when using a Control Person’s email address, and when supplying LiveLitigation with the prospective participant's email address and password for delivery to a Control Person, to use such measures as the prospective participant thinks appropriate and prudent to identify and verify whom it will be dealing with in a session, including without limitation the Control Person and other participants in the session.
We reserve the right, for protection of ourselves and our systems, to use whatever lawful means may be at our disposal to attempt to verify any IP (Internet Port) address, email address, or other identification information of any User, participant or visitor.
15. Contents Of User and Participant Communications Are
Transitory in Limited Participation Sessions; Control Person’s
Choice to Record or Not; No Long-term Archival Storage.
During Limited Participation sessions, communications among the Control Person and other participants are transitorily resident within the automatic switching systems, computer memory, and any temporary on-line parallel or concurrent backup systems of LiveLitigation and our Internet.
Service Providers ("ISPs"). Each Limited Participation session is generally limited not to exceed ten consecutive days, and most will have much shorter duration.
Within Limited Participation sessions all transmission of communications is initiated or directed by the Control Person and other participants, not by LiveLitigation. Communication content is transmitted among the Control Person and other participants automatically based upon the Control Person's selection of participants. The transmission, routing, provision of connections, and any storage of content is done at the direction of the Control Person and other participants, and material is transmitted by automatic technical processes without selection or modification of the content by LiveLitigation.
LiveLitigation offers to some Control Persons, using LiveLitigation software, a capability to record onto LiveLitigation servers the Communication Content of a session. The Control Person thereafter can download the recorded Communication Content from LiveLitigation’s computers to the Control Person’s computer. The Control Person then can deal with the recorded matter at the Control Person’s discretion without any supervision or controls by LiveLitigation. LiveLitigation does not claim any ownership or control of the recorded Communication content, but leaves those issues exclusively to the Control Person that chose to record the matter, except in the rare case where LiveLitigation might claim rights to particular content independently of the Control Person’s session, such as by trademark, copyright or patent. The decision whether to record or not is made by the Control Person, not by LiveLitigation. The LiveLitigation recording capability is designed to automatically post a notice on the computer screen of each prospective participant that a Control Person has elected to record the particular session. A prospective participant should not enter the session if the prospective participant does not wish to be recorded. Similarly, any participant can terminate participation in a recorded session at any time, though any recording made by a Control Person before termination will remain on LiveLitigation’s computers, available for download of the recorded session by the Control Person (or others designated by a Control Person) automatically deletes recorded matter from LiveLitigation’s operating computers after a limited period of time, which may be less than 72 hours. It is a Control Person’s choice and responsibility to download recorded matter that a Control Person wishes to preserve before that matter is deleted by LiveLitigation. LiveLitigation disclaims any responsibility for the contents, quality of recording, failure to successfully record, loss, destruction or deletion of matter that a Control Person chooses to record. A Control Person that chooses to record matter is solely responsible for insuring that such recordation complies with the laws and regulations of any governmental authority having jurisdiction over any portion of the communications.
LiveLitigation event recordings are unedited and unofficial/uncertified event videos. These videos shall not be made official/certified and cannot be used, cited, or transcribed for use as the official/certified video of the proceedings. These videos shall not be cited or used in any way or at any time to rebut or contradict any official/certified video of the proceedings as provided by the official reporter or official reporter pro tempore. These unofficial/uncertified videos are intended only for the purpose of augmenting counsel’s notes and are not intended to be copied or used in any court proceedings or distributed to any other parties.
LiveLitigation does not otherwise record, backup, or archive the contents of Control Person and participant communications during a Limited Participation session, except as is technically necessary for that particular Limited Participation session, and those contents then are dissipated from LiveLitigation's systems either during or after termination of a particular Limited Participation session. Except for recording made at the choice of the Control Person of a particular session, no copy of Your Communications Content or Your Correspondents' Communication Content during Limited Participation sessions is maintained or stored on the LiveLitigation system or network in a manner that ordinarily would be accessible to anyone other than the Control Person and participants selected by the Control Person for a particular Limited Participation session.
After termination of a particular session no copy that has been maintained by LiveLitigation during a particular Limited Participation session remains ordinarily accessible to the Control Person or other participants for a longer period than is reasonably necessary for that Limited Participation session, except what a Control Person has chosen to record.
The Control Person and other participants are entirely responsible for any recordation, archiving, or other backup of their own content, and may do so only as permitted by applicable law. If a Control Person has not chosen to record Communication content, then after completion of a particular Limited Participation session the only information that is retained by design at LiveLitigation with reference to that Limited Participation session is a record that the Control Person's session took place, which may include the time, and the user names, email addresses and IP addresses supplied by the Control Person, participants and prospective participants for that session.
LiveLitigation does not monitor the content of Control Person and participant communications either during Limited Participation sessions or thereafter where a Control Person has chosen to record content. The Control Person and participants bear sole responsibility, risk and liability for the content of their communications and for the identification and selection of recipients of their communications. The Control Person and participants in a Limited Participation session are responsible for determining and resolving among themselves rights related to the content of sessions, whether or not recorded.
16. User-Implemented Encryption or Other Special Security
Issues of Users.
User hereby acknowledges that information that passes through or is retained on Live Cloud Deposition's computer servers has a moderate level of password-access security that is required to enter into a meeting ("Meeting-level Access Security"). After such password access is gained to a meeting then the content of that meeting is generally available to anyone who has acquired such password access to that meeting, or to recorded copies of such meeting. The degree of a User's password-access security for a meeting is dependent upon the User's selection of stronger or weaker passwords and the User's distribution and control of the User's passwords. User acknowledges that LiveLitigation does not provide encryption capability within a meeting, but only password protection for entry into a meeting. User can implement a higher degree of security to certain kinds of particular information within that meeting by applying additional password access, or other encryption controls to files before uploading or transmitting to LiveLitigation’s Communications Channels and Bandwidth, ("Encrypted Content Transmitted within a Meeting"). LiveLitigation does not provide encryption or additional password protection (beyond the passwords required to enter the meeting) as to the streaming live audio and live video of the meeting as a whole, or to recordings of the meeting as a whole. It shall be the responsibility of the User (A) to identify the particular portions of its own information and content that requires a higher level of security before transmission within a meeting, and (B) to implement the User's higher level of security for such information and content that the User transmits or receives. For example, and without limitation, a User can individually encrypt a particular document before transmitting that document within a meeting through the LiveLitigation computer servers, and before storing that particular document on LiveLitigation servers. Then, even if Meeting-level Access Security fails for a meeting as a whole, the User still can maintain the separate higher-level security access to particular files transmitted within that meeting. User shall be responsible for selecting and implementing an encryption system or other security system of User's choice for Encrypted Content Within A Meeting. As an example and without limitation, a User can implement the encryption features of Adobe Acrobat for particular documents that the User identifies as too sensitive to protect solely by Meeting-level Access Security. User shall not provide to LiveLitigation the User's access passwords for Encrypted Content Transmitted Within A Meeting. LiveLitigation shall not have any responsibility or liability for encryption or decryption of User's information and content, nor for control or distribution of User's access to Encrypted Content Transmitted Within A Meeting.
17. LiveLitigation Public Rooms; Public Video, Text Chat
Rooms and Billboards.
LiveLitigation may provide public video, text chat rooms, billboards, special interest rooms, and other publicly available contents at its website ("LiveLitigation Public Rooms"), the content of which may be accessible by any member of the general public visiting the LiveLitigation website with minimal or no registration. LiveLitigation's Public Rooms enable visitors and prospective Users to engage in limited trials of LiveLitigation's systems. Visitors to the LiveLitigation website may be enabled to post information to some LiveLitigation Public Rooms. The content posted by visitors to the LiveLitigation Public Rooms will be transitorily resident within the automatic switching systems, computer memory and caches, and any temporary on-line parallel or concurrent backup systems, of LiveLitigation and its Internet service providers. Both the posting and accessing of content in LiveLitigation Public Rooms is done automatically at the direction of visitors and prospective Users and LiveLitigation does not undertake to select or modify such content, other than by deleting it from time to time.

Our policy is to take down material from LiveLitigation Public Rooms after display for not more than ten consecutive days, and often more frequently, after which such content dissipates from its systems.

(i) to take down, restrict, or refuse to post any information in
the LiveLitigation Public Rooms, or
(ii) to make such Public Rooms available or unavailable.
18. License Granted By You to Us for Content Transmitted by
You to Public Areas.
When you communicate content to or within any LiveLitigation Public Room or any other area of LiveLitigation which is intended to be accessible by the general public, then you shall be deemed to have granted to us (Live Cloud Depositions, LLC ) an irrevocable, world-wide, no-royalty, no-fee license to publish, distribute, use, reproduce, modify, adapt, translate, publicly perform and publicly display (in whole or in part) in any manner, place, or medium whatsoever such content transmitted or posted to LiveLitigation Public Rooms. This license from you to us is fully sub licensable by us.
LiveLitigation does not pre-screen the content of transmissions and postings originated or transmitted by you or by any other user or visitor in LiveLitigation Public Rooms. We have no obligation to post, display, transmit, or retain any material whatsoever in any LiveLitigation Public Room or other publicly accessible area. We at our sole and unfettered discretion may limit access of anyone, refuse to post, or may remove or delete any matter, or may block or terminate access by any person, at any time for any reason or for no reason. We also may make available or unavailable any Public Room, public page, or other area that may be generally accessible to the public.
19. License Granted by Us to You for Use of Our Public
Live Cloud Depositions, LLC grants you a temporary limited license to access and use LiveLitigation Public Rooms which then are being made available by us without registration by you as a User; this license is non-transferable and non-sub licensable by you, is terminable at will by us without notice to you; and is subject to the terms of this Agreement. Generally your access to a Public Room may be automatically limited not to exceed ten minutes during any one log on by you. If you register as a User, and so long as you comply with the payment terms and other terms of this Agreement, or if you are granted access by a Control Person to a Limited Participation session, then you are granted by us a temporary limited license to use those portions of our system which we provide for that particular Limited Participation session. Your license as User is non-sub licensable and non-transferable by you, and is terminable at will by us at any time for any reason or for no reason.
You do not receive any license authorizing you to, and you shall not, assign, sublicense, distribute, redistribute, publish, compile, decompile, copy, modify, or reverse engineer, any content or technical means of the LiveLitigation website, the Services, our systems, or our software; and this restriction applies to both public areas and limited participation areas.
20. Content May Be Offensive.
You recognize that LiveLitigation generally does not, and usually cannot, pre-screen, monitor, modify or control in real time the content of any communications or posting, either in Limited Participation areas or in publicly accessible areas. Therefore, you acknowledge that when you use any area of LiveLitigation there is a risk that you could be exposed to salacious, obscene, pornographic, hateful, misleading, and fraudulent or other objectionable materials posted or otherwise communicated by other Users, participants or visitors. You agree to accept this risk. You agree that LiveLitigation and Live Cloud Depositions, LLC shall have no responsibility or liability to you for any such exposure you may experience. LiveLitigation does not intentionally sponsor such offensive matter and you and all other users are required to agree not to engage in the conduct which is prohibited or restricted by this Agreement, but we do not, and ordinarily cannot, undertake to police such conduct by users.
21. Adult or Mature Content; No Access To or Targeting of
There may be areas of LiveLitigation which are specifically designated for "adult" or "mature" content. You agree that you shall not transmit, post or otherwise communicate "adult" or "mature" content outside of such designated areas by use of LiveLitigation or the Services. You further agree that you shall not target children with, and shall not permit children to have access to, the areas designated as "adult" or "mature." If you are an adult and you object to such "adult or "mature" content you agree that you shall refrain from accessing such areas. Nothing in this section shall be construed as authorizing you to transmit, post, deliberately access, or otherwise communicate unlawful pornographic matter or hate matter by use of LiveLitigation or the Services, and you shall not do so.
22. You Warrant Your Authority for Use of Your
23. License of Your User Information from You to Us.
24. Your Editing and Deletion of Your User Information.
LiveLitigation provides ways for you to edit Your Information and preferences. To do so, please log into your account using your User ID and password. You may request that your LiveLitigation registration and User status be terminated and deleted by sending an email to admin@LiveLitigation.com and filling out the form(s) provided at https://www.livelitigation.com/cancel-local.html or https://www.livelitigation.com/cancel-remote.html.
To aid fraud prevention, termination and deletion may be deferred for up to 90 days after you instruct termination. Please see the topic Archival Retention of Your Information to read about what information may remain in archived records after termination of your registration and User status.
25. Archival Retention of Your Information.
In order to protect its systems against failures and loss of data and to enable resumption and continuation of the Services with minimal disruption and down time, LiveLitigation likely will maintain parallel, redundant, backup, or other archival systems ("Archived User Information.") which may vary from time to time depending upon the technology then in use by us. Such systems are designed to archive information which can be recalled. As a matter of course during operation of our systems Your Information is likely to be included in Archived User Information. When your registration and User status are terminated in our currently active databases, there likely will remain pre-existing copies of Your Information in Archived User Information that is being held more or less independently of the currently active databases and from which Your Information therefore will not have been deleted. Reasonable efforts will be made to promptly include your termination request in the most current Archived User Information so that your termination instruction will be honored. However, it is possible that in the event of loss or damage of the currently active databases, older Archived User Information which still contains Your Information will be used to restore service, thereby resulting in restoration of Your Information in what then becomes the currently active databases. You agree to accept this risk and your sole remedy in such an event will be to again request termination of your registration and User status. Even when you request termination of your account, it will be necessary for LiveLitigation to maintain some limited records of your transactions with LiveLitigation. For example, we may maintain some identifying information concerning you to keep a record of your request for termination of your account as well as records of our prior transactions with you for our financial and tax reporting purposes.
