1. Intellectual Property Rights
Unless otherwise indicated, the Website is the property of Lateral Reach and all source code, databases, functionality, software, website designs, audio, video, text, photographs, and graphics of any nature and regardless of format (herein, collectively or individually, the "Content") and the trademarks, service marks, and logos contained there (the "Marks") are owned and controlled by Lateral Reach and are protected by copyright and trademark laws and any other applicable intellectual property law or regulation of the United States, foreign jurisdictions, and international conventions. The Content and Marks are provided "As-Is" for your information and personal use only. Except as expressly provided herein, no part of the Website and no Content may be copied, reproduced, aggregated, republished, uploaded, posted, displayed, encoded, translated, transmitted, distributed, sold, licensed, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose whatsoever, without Lateral Reach's express prior written permission. Lateral Reach reserves all rights in the Website, Content, and Marks.
2. Ownership of Materials
Notwithstanding Lateral Reach's ownership of Submissions, as described in Paragraph 4 ("Client Feedback"), all design and original source files created on the Client's behalf ("Projects") belong to the Client, and the Client shall be the sole owner of the copyright for all Projects. In the event that any operation of law would cause Lateral Reach to become the owner of a Project, in whole or in part, rather than the Client, Lateral Reach irrevocably and perpetually assigns its entire interest in the Project to the Client, without limitation. The Client warrants that any and all materials provided to Lateral Reach as examples or as material to be incorporated into a project during the design process are owned by the Client and do not infringe on or misappropriate any third party's rights, including, but not limited to, all intellectual property rights and any right of publicity. Lateral Reach reserves the right to share the Client's design work publicly (social media, website, etc.) unless otherwise agreed upon.
3. Third-Party Fonts
In the event that any Project incorporates fonts that are not owned by Lateral Reach and require a commercial license in order for the Client to legally reproduce, distribute, or publicly display the Project ("Third-Party Font(s)"), Lateral Reach will inform the Client in writing that one or more Third-Party Fonts have been incorporated into the Project and that the Client will need to purchase one or more licenses for the Third-Party Fonts from the rights-holder(s) of said Third-Party Fonts in order to legally reproduce, distribute, or publicly display the Project. Said notice will include information sufficient for the Client to identify which licenses are required and who to contact in order to purchase said licenses. So long as Lateral Reach has informed the Client of the incorporation of Third-Party Fonts as described above, the Client assumes all responsibility for any consequences as a result of a failure by the Client to purchase one or more licenses for any Third-Party Fonts incorporated into a Project.
