This license will terminate at the time you remove your Materials from the MasturbatioNation Service, except that you agree that the license will continue solely with respect to other Members' continued use of your Materials that are not music or videos (i.e. photos or skins); provided, however if you remove any of the Materials from the MasturbatioNation Service, MasturbatioNation reserves the right to remove all of your Materials from other Member's pages. The license does not grant MasturbatioNation the right to sell your Materials You represent and warrant that: (i) you own the Materials posted by you on or through the MasturbatioNation Service or otherwise have the right to grant the license set forth in this section, and (ii) the posting of your Materials on or through the MasturbatioNation Service does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights or any other rights of any person. You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owing any person by reason of any Materials posted by you to or through the MasturbatioNation Service. The hosting of certain items that you post, such as video, may require your agreement to a separate license agreement or terms of use.
