Moreover, you promise that you will not intentionally or unintentionally violate any applicable local, state, national or international law, or any regulations having the force of law, including the Civil Rights Act of 1866, the Fair Housing Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Equal Credit Opportunity Act.

By transmitting, posting, displaying, or publishing Content on, to, or through the Sites, you hereby grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant, to Home Junction the non-exclusive right to use all Content entered by You in any of their print or electronic publications, including but not limited to the right and license to host, serve, reproduce, build upon, use, modify, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce and distribute such Content, and to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, the Content, and to grant and authorize sublicenses (through multiple tiers) of the foregoing, on and through the Sites and to charge for access to and/or use of such Content. Your license to Home Junction is royalty-free, fully paid, fully sublicensable, irrevocable, worldwide and perpetual. Furthermore, by posting Content to any area of the Sites, you grant Home Junction all rights necessary to prohibit any subsequent aggregation, display, copying, duplication, reproduction, or exploitation of the Content on the Sites by any party for any purpose. To the extent you lawfully contribute original copyrightable content (as distinguished from raw data, facts, and ideas) to Home Junction, you grant Home Junction a perpetual, worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free license to host, serve, reproduce, distribute, and develop derivative works of such Content. Also, in some cases, the use of certain Content may be subject to a third-party agreement (e.g. a Creative Commons license); it is your responsibility to honor such agreements including, where applicable, to make others aware of any agreements conditioning your or their use, distribution, or manipulation of such content.

Under no circumstances will Home Junction be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any Content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available via the Sites or the Services.

The Home Junction APIs, widgets, and plug-ins (collectively, "API" or "APIs") enable you to programmatically access portions of the Services enabling the development of applications. Any use of the API constitutes use of the Services and is governed by these Home Junction Terms of Use. You agree to make users of any third-party applications aware of these terms via a commercially reasonable manner, and you acknowledge that third-party uses of any applications you create from the Home Junction API shall be bound by these Terms of Use.

For the avoidance of doubt, materials lawfully uploaded to and made available on Home Junction via Home Junction API-based applications you develop shall be governed by these Terms of Use, and you agree not to encumber or restrict such contributions to Home Junction in any way that contradicts these terms.

Additional terms for API usage: Home Junction may at its sole discretion restrict and limit access to API calls. You agree to abide by these limitations (such as daily usage quotas). You agree not to use methods (such as using multiple IP addresses) to get around these limitations. You also agree to make reasonable good faith efforts to ensure that others' uses of any tools or software you create that use the Home Junction API do not result in any of the prohibited uses under these Terms of Use. Home Junction, in its sole discretion, may at any time change the specifications of or restrict or limit access to the APIs. Home Junction reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge fees for use of or access to specific levels of service around the Home Junction API or any portion of the services provided by it. If Home Junction decides to charge fees for Services, such fees and additional terms and conditions will be disclosed to you prior to the effective date when such fees or requirements would be imposed. If you do not agree to such charges at the time of the fee disclosure, simply discontinue your use of the Home Junction API. You may not sell, resell, redistribute, sublicense, build upon, create derivative works from, or transfer all or any portion of the Services or data provided to you through Home Junction API calls.

API Termination: Your license to Home Junction APIs under these Terms of Use continues until terminated by you or Home Junction. You may terminate the license by discontinuing use of the APIs. We may terminate the license to the APIs without liability at any time for any or no reason, with or without notice. Additionally, your rights to use the APIs will terminate immediately if you violate any of the terms and conditions herein. Upon expiration or termination of the license granted herein, you will discontinue any and all use of the Home Junction APIs. You agree that all information or data of any kind, whether text, software, code, music or sound, photographs or graphics, video or other materials made available publicly or privately, will be under the sole responsibility of the person providing the said Content, or of the person whose user account is used.

THE EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES UNDER THIS PARAGRAPH IS INDEPENDENT OF YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AND SURVIVES IN THE EVENT SUCH REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OR IS OTHERWISE DEEMED UNENFORCEABLE. THESE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS APPLY WITHOUT REGARD TO WHETHER THE DAMAGES ARISE FROM (A) BREACH OF CONTRACT, (B) BREACH OF WARRANTY, (C) NEGLIGENCE, OR (D) ANY OTHER CAUSE OF ACTION, TO THE EXTENT SUCH EXCLUSION AND LIMITATIONS ARE NOT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

Home Junction's failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms of Use will not be deemed to be a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Use is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Use remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Services must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
