Customer agrees not to submit any property descriptions, photographs, financial, contact or other information contained in each listing data to Shared Offices unless the Customer has received all necessary rights and authorizations, including from the photographer and/or copyright owner of any photographs, to publish and advertise the Shared Office space on the Customer’s website or on Shared Offices’s website. Specifically, Customer will not submit a photograph if Customer received the photograph from a third party information provider under the terms of a license that does not allow posting of such photograph on the Shared Offices website. The Company may, in its sole discretion but without any obligation to search for such, remove listings that are alleged to have been submitted in violation of this provision.

Additionally, the Customer agrees to allow submitted shared office space listing(s), or any part therein, to be searched, displayed, accessed, downloaded, copied, and otherwise referred to by users of the Customer’s website, the Shared Offices website and other Shared Offices partner websites. The Company shall have the sole authority to choose the manner in which any listing will be searched, displayed, accessed, downloaded, copied, and otherwise used on the Shared Offices website and Company shall have the right to modify the shared office space listing in the exercise of its rights under this Agreement.

The Company reserves, in a manner consistent with reasonable commercial business practices, the right to remove all or any part of the listings posted on the Customer’s website or on the Shared Offices website. The Company accepts no responsibility for checking the accuracy of information submitted by the Customer. While the Company shall take all reasonable efforts for data backup and business resumption, the Customer will be solely responsible for retaining back-up copies of all information, photographs and other materials it provides to Shared Offices. Shared Offices may add digital watermarks to certain parts of your listing, including photographs. We add these digital watermarks to protect against the copying or further distribution of your photographs without your permission.
