manufacturers to follow and receive information from, and the ability to comment
on and review most content on the site. After a paid subscription, Company Users

9. Your Limited Licenses, Warranties and Representations to LMT on Your Posted
You are solely responsible for the Content that you post on, through or in
connection with The BRIDGE, and any material or information that you transmit
to other Users and for your interactions with other Users.
By posting any Content on, through or in connection with The BRIDGE, you
hereby grant to LMT a limited license to use, modify, delete from, add to,
publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce, and distribute such Content solely
on, through or in connection with The BRIDGE, including, without limitation,
through The BRIDGE to the Linked Services (as defined in the "Third Party
Linked Service" in section 13). This limited license does not grant LMT the right
to sell or otherwise distribute your Content outside of The BRIDGE or Linked
Services and does not grant LMT the right to use or sell the Content
marked "private." After you remove your Content from The BRIDGE, LMT will
cease distribution as soon as practicable, and at such time when distribution
ceases, the license will terminate. If after LMT has distributed your Content
outside of The BRIDGE, you change the Content's privacy setting to "private,"
LMT will cease distribution of such "private" Content outside of The BRIDGE as
soon as practicable after you make the change. Notwithstanding the foregoing,
you understand and agree that once Content is distributed to a Linked Service or
incorporated into other aspects of The BRIDGE, LMT is under no obligation to
delete or ask other Users or a Linked Service to delete that Content, and therefore
it may continue to appear and be used indefinitely. The license you grant to LMT
is non-exclusive, fully paid and royalty-free, sub licensable, and worldwide.
You represent and warrant that: (i) you own the Content posted by you on,
through or in connection with The BRIDGE, or otherwise have the right to grant

through or in connection with The BRIDGE and/or Linked Services does not
violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights or any other
rights of any person or entity. You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any
other monies owing any person or entity by reason of the use of any Content
posted by you on or through The BRIDGE and/or Linked Services.
LMT reserves the right to limit the storage capacity of Content that you post on,
through or in connection with The BRIDGE. LMT may reject, refuse to post, or
delete any Content for any or no reason, including, but not limited to, Content that
in the sole judgment of LMT violates this Agreement or which may be offensive,
illegal or violate the rights of any person or entity, or harm or threaten the safety
of any person or entity. LMT assumes no responsibility for monitoring The
BRIDGE for inappropriate Content or conduct. If at any time LMT chooses, in its
sole discretion, to monitor The BRIDGE, LMT nonetheless assumes no
responsibility for the Content, no obligation to modify or remove any
inappropriate Content, and no responsibility for the conduct of the User
submitting any such Content.
You acknowledge and agree that upon receipt of a notice of a claim of copyright
infringement, LMT may immediately remove the identified materials from its site
