7. Use of a vulgar language or images likely to offend other users Trademarks, logos and service marks (“brands”) posted on CCI`s website and related websites are registered trademarks of their respective owners, are the property of their respective owners and are protected by the laws and/or common law of U.S. and international trademarks. Their use is limited to programs, events, products or services that we sponsor or are bound to by other means. Our brands should not be used for personal financial gain. The use of trademarks is prohibited without our explicit written consent, unless authorized by applicable law. Nothing on the site should be interpreted in such a way that it grants a license or right to use trademarks without our explicit written consent. At a high level, the courts will consider the applicability of a website user agreement in the context of basic fairness.
The more one-sided an agreement is, the more likely a court is to render it unenforceable. An important factor is the actual or apparent knowledge of the user. While there are few court decisions on this issue, the reference to a long series of “responsibility contract” decisions regarding offline contracts and the Federal Trade Commission`s advice on appropriate disclosure to consumers (individual and professional customers) provides valuable guidance.
