Right to use the Site
EonCode grants you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable license for you to use this Site for your personal entertainment, information, education, and communication, upon all of the terms of this TOS. This Site contains materials and other items relating to EonCode and its products and services, and similar items from our business partners, licensors, and licensees, and other third parties (collectively, the "Content"). The Content may be in the form of information, text, data, images, graphics, button icons, registered and unregistered trademarks, illustrations, photographs, audio clips, music, sounds, pictures, videos, software, or other forms and formats now known or later invented. In using this Site, you must respect the intellectual property rights of EonCode and others, all as outlined below. Your unauthorized use of Content may violate copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity, communications, and other laws, and any such use may result in your personal liability, including potential criminal liability.
All Content is copyrighted, and it is either owned or used with permission by EonCode. EonCode disclaims any representation or warranty that your unauthorized use of Content will not infringe upon rights of third parties not owned by or affiliated with EonCode.
Except as set forth in this TOS or in the text of this Site, you may not reproduce, distribute, publish, transmit, modify, adapt, translate, display, distribute, sell, license, publicly perform, prepare derivative works based upon, or otherwise use or exploit the Content. You may download one copy of portions of the Content in temporary storage on one personal computer for your personal, non-commercial, non-political, non-networked viewing and use only, provided you do not delete or change any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices. The foregoing limited right does not give you any ownership of any Content. Except as expressly provided above, nothing contained in this TOS may be construed as conferring to you (by implication, estoppel, or otherwise) any license or right to any Content under any copyright or any other intellectual property right.
The trademarks, logos, and service marks displayed on this Site are owned by EonCode and third parties, and this Site's trade dress is owned by EonCode (collectively, the "Trademarks", which also constitute Content). All Trademarks not owned by EonCode are the property of their respective owners, and are used with permission. Nothing contained on this Site may be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any right or license to use any Trademark.
Some portions of the Site are password-protected, and are restricted in access to customers who have purchased EonCode products under a separate agreement between the customer and EonCode ("Customer Contract"), or persons who have been given temporary access to the restricted areas for viewing product demonstrations or for similar purposes. All uses of the restricted areas of the Site are governed by the terms of the Customer Contract as applicable. If you are granted limited access to the restricted areas of the Site without having yet entered into a Customer Contract, you agree that in addition to the terms of this TOS, the Content in the restricted area is confidential to EonCode, and you will not use such Content for any purpose other than internal evaluation of the EonCode products, and shall not disclose such Content to any third party without the prior written consent of EonCode.
Communications with EonCode
EonCode likes to hear from you. However, in your communications with EonCode, please keep in mind that, unless it specifically requests them, EonCode does not request or solicit any ideas or suggestions relating to new toys, games, inventions, products, services, or any other matters. Therefore, please do not send to EonCode any unsolicited materials, such as ideas for toys, games, or other products, or any other suggestions, ideas, notes, drawings, inventions, techniques, models, designs, concepts, or other similar information or materials.
Any such submissions and any questions, comments, answers, suggestions, or the like submitted by you to EonCode via this Site or by fax, mail, or otherwise, or transmitted, posted, or uploaded by you to this Site (collectively, "Your Submissions") will be treated as non-confidential and nonproprietary, and EonCode will not assume any responsibility, obligation, or liability for them or for EonCode's receipt or non-receipt of them. EonCode's receipt of Your Submissions is not an admission by EonCode of their novelty, priority, or originality, and it does not impair EonCode's right to contest existing or future intellectual property rights relating to Your Submissions.
You grant EonCode a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and sublicensable right and license to reproduce, distribute, publish, transmit, modify, adapt, translate, display, distribute, sell, license, publicly perform, prepare derivative works based upon, and otherwise use or exploit Your Submissions throughout the world in any and all media. You represent and warrant that: (a) you have the right and authorization to make the foregoing grant without the consent of any third party, and (b) Your Submissions are accurate and, as permitted to be used by EonCode in this TOS, do not and will not infringe any right of any third party.

Furthermore, you agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
