Gulfstream reserves the right to reproduce such content, in whole or in part, on any of the Gulfstream Sites or its affiliates, and to use it in any way we choose, including sublicensing the content and allowing third parties to republish the material.

6. Comments – The comments sections on Gulfstream Sites are accessible to all users. Gulfstream's comment user registration system has been designed so that, if the user so chooses, they can remain completely anonymous, even to us. Gulfstream will not accept responsibility for information posted in the Comments. In order to make our comments useful and interesting, the following guidelines have been established for comment users:
a. Do not post threatening, harassing, defamatory, or libelous material.
b. Do not intentionally make false or misleading statements.
c. Do not offer to sell or buy any product or service.
d. Do not post material that infringes copyright or any other intellectual property interest.
e. Do not post information that you know to be confidential or sensitive or otherwise in breach of the law.
f. Keep all comments relevant to the particular Gulfstream Site where the comment is being posted.

Please note that once you post a comment to one of our sites, it becomes part of the public conversation. Our policy is that we will not remove a user's comments unless we deem them to be in violation of our Terms of Use. So if you want to say something that you will later regret personally, it is advisable that you use a username that does not identify you. We cannot remove your comments simply because you have a change of heart about making them. Additionally, it is our policy not to delete comment accounts. Gulfstream, however, reserves the right to remove comments and comment accounts entirely at its discretion, including for alleged violations of Terms of Use or legal rights.

Gulfstream is not responsible for the content of user comments. If a third party complains that your comment violates our Terms of Use or their rights, we will invite them to respond in the comments themselves. If they pursue the complaint, we will make reasonable efforts to contact you by the means you have provided us, to alert you to the situation. We will protect your contact information as described in our Privacy Policy, but may be compelled to turn it over pursuant to legal process.

a. Material licensed from photographic archive and video vendors;
b. Material supplied to our editors or released into the public domain by public relations and marketing companies for press purposes;
c. Reader-submitted Material, with the implied representation that the person submitting the material owns the copyright in the material and the right to give it to us for use on Gulfstream Site(s);
d. Material published on Flickr or other public photo / video sites with licenses granted under Creative Commons, with attribution in accordance with the Creative Commons license granted in each case;
e. Material commissioned by Gulfstream
f. Material that we believe to be covered by the Fair Use Doctrine, taking into account factors such as:

i. The purpose and character of the use (i.e. transformation from the original, use for criticism, satire or parody)
ii. The nature of the copyrighted work (i.e. factual or newsworthy versus creative works)
iii. The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the whole (i.e. use of cropped, reduced, low-resolution Material used for no more than to convey the point made)
iv. The effect on the potential market for the copyrighted work (e.g. use that is not substitutive for the original, or would never be licensed in any event)

 

8. Notices – If Gulfstream receives notice that Material posted is not in keeping with the Terms of Use or the intended use of the Comments section where it is posted, we reserve to right to remove the material. If you think we have published Material that infringes your copyright, we will address your concerns; however, if the material falls into one of the categories listed above, we believe that our use is legitimate and we will not remove it from the site. Please note that we will respond only to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The text of the Act can be found at the U.S. Copyright Office Web Site. To file a notice of infringement with us, you must provide a written communication (by email with an attached and signed PDF or by fax) that sets forth the items specified below. Please do not send us regular mail, as we may not receive it in a timely fashion. In all cases, if you do not hear a response from us within 10 days of submitting a complaint, please telephone us at (843) 971-9811 x to confirm that we received your original complaint. Spam blockers sometimes prevent delivery.

II. Provide information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you: an email address is preferred, as well as a telephone contact number.
III. For images, provide the following information detailing your claim to ownership of the copyright in the allegedly infringing image:
IV. Proof of copyright in the image concerned, namely proof of registration of the Image under the DMCA; OR, absent such registration, a detailed description of where the photograph was taken, by whom, who or what the subject of the image is, and evidence to support your claim that you own the copyright in the image. We will not comply with requests to remove an image where the complainant cannot prove that they own the copyright in the image in question.
V. Include the following statement: "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed."
