Remember Team Buffalo is for learning and leadership growth and is intended to be a place for your development, but we still need rules in place to ensure we support those involved. In order to use the Services, you must have accepted these Terms, which are: (a) presented to you when you create an Account; and (b) available at all times when you access the Services. If you don’t accept them, you may not access or use our Services. Failure to comply with this Agreement may result in immediate termination of membership without a refund.

You are solely responsible for your interactions with other users of the Services and/or Website and any other parties with whom you interact through the Services and/or Website. Any interaction with another user of the Services and/or Website must be in compliance with the Standards of Behaviour and these Terms. Team Buffalo reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way with these disputes.

By submitting Your Content to the Services, you represent and warrant that you have all rights, power, and authority necessary to grant the rights to Your Content contained within these Terms.

When Your Content is created with or submitted to the Services, you grant us a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, transferable, and sublicensable license to use, copy, modify, adapt, prepare derivative works of, distribute, store, perform, and display Your Content and any name, username, voice, or likeness provided in connection with Your Content in all media formats and channels now known or later developed anywhere in the world. This license includes the right for us to make Your Content available for syndication, broadcast, distribution, or publication by other companies, organisations, or individuals who partner with Team Buffalo. You also agree that we may remove metadata associated with Your Content, and you irrevocably waive any claims and assertions of moral rights or attribution with respect to Your Content.
Any ideas, suggestions, and feedback about Team Buffalo or our Services that you provide to us are entirely voluntary, and you agree that Team Buffalo may use such ideas, suggestions, and feedback without compensation or obligation to you.
The Services and/or Website may include various forums, blogs and chat features where you can post User Content, including your observations and comments on designated topics. We cannot guarantee that other users will not use the ideas and information that you share. Therefore, if you have an idea or information that you would like to keep confidential and/or don’t want others to use, do not post it on the Services and/or Website. Team Buffalo has no responsibility to evaluate, use or compensate you for any ideas or information you may choose to submit.
You are solely responsible for the information that you post on or in connection with the Services and/or Website, or that you provide to others. We may reject, refuse to post or delete any User Content for any or no reason, including, but not limited to, User Content that in our sole judgment violates these Terms.
Although we reserve the right to review, screen, edit, or monitor Your Content, we do not necessarily review all of it at the time it’s submitted to the Services. However, we may, in our sole discretion, delete or remove Your Content at any time and for any reason, including for violating these Terms, violating our Content Policy, or if you otherwise create or are likely to create liability for us.
