You may be required to register for and maintain a user account (“Account”) to access certain aspects of the Sites. You must have attained the age of legal majority in your jurisdiction to have an Account or have a parent or legal guardian control the account for you. You are prohibited from having an Account if you have previously been banned from accessing or using the Sites. You may be required to select Account credentials, including a user ID and password. Polaris may refuse to grant you a particular user ID for any reason. All user IDs and passwords are the property of Polaris and may be canceled at any time by Polaris without any prior notice or any liability to you or any other person. You may be required to submit certain personal information to Polaris, such as your name, address, phone number and age. You agree to maintain accurate, complete, and up-to-date information in your Account. Please see the Polaris Privacy Notice regarding collection of your personal information.
It is your responsibility to keep your password confidential and your Account secure. You agree you are solely responsible for all activity and purchases that occur through your Account. You agree to notify Polaris immediately of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use, of your Account and any other breach of security. You further agree that you will not permit others, including those who have been banned from the Sites, to use your Account. Polaris reserves the right to terminate your Account for any reason, including any violation of these Terms. Polaris is not liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements or from any losses resulting from unauthorized access to or use of your Account or the Sites. You may be liable to Polaris or third parties for such unauthorized access or use.
Any information you post or otherwise transmit to the Sites, including any comments, feedback, data, photos, videos, questions, or suggestions (“User Content”), are considered non-confidential and non-proprietary. In other words, you waive any and all rights to claim that Polaris’s or any third-party’s use of your User Content violates any of your rights including but not limited to moral rights, privacy, intellectual property, publicity, or any other rights. Polaris does not guarantee that you will have any opportunity to edit or delete your User Content. You acknowledge that you, not Polaris, are solely responsible for the composition of any User Content.
Polaris prohibits, and you agree you will refrain from, posting or transmitting any defamatory, libelous, obscene, pornographic, profane, threatening, or unlawful material or any material that could incite a criminal act, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law.

However, Polaris has no obligation to do so and assumes no liability or responsibility arising from any User Content or for any defamation, error, inaccuracy, libel, obscenity, or profanity contained in any User Content. Polaris may change, edit, or remove User Content at any time, for any reason, including if Polaris finds, in its sole discretion, User Content to be illegal, indecent, obscene, offensive, or in any way a violation of Polaris’s policies. Polaris will cooperate fully with any law enforcement authorities or any court order requesting or directing Polaris to disclose the identity of anyone posting User Content.
