Other than personally identifiable information, which is covered in Supplemental Terms, any reviews, comment, questions, ideas, suggestions, photos, images and other material you send or post to the Services (“User Generated Content”) will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary. The Services are not designed to accept User Generated Content. While Red Hat does not expect that you will send or post any User Generated Content in connection with these Services, Red Hat will have no obligations with respect to User Generated Content. By posting, uploading, adding, communicating, storing, or otherwise transmitting User Generated Content on, to, or through the Services, you understand and agree that you are giving Red Hat a royalty free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive and fully sub-licensable license to edit, alter, broadcast, post, publish, copy, disclose, distribute, perform, create derivative works from, incorporate and otherwise use the User Generated Content and images, sounds, text, and other things embodied therein for any and all purposes, including commercial, promotional, or marketing purposes throughout the world in any form, medium, or technology now known or later developed.

No Obligation to Monitor. Although you are solely responsible for the content provided by you, Red Hat may, but is not required to, monitor User Generated Content. If Red Hat becomes aware of User Generated Content that violates this Agreement that it believes to be obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable, Red Hat may act to restrict access to or availability of the material and/or Services, without notice to you and in its sole discretion, or may take other action as described elsewhere in this Agreement.
Internet transmissions are never completely private or secure. You understand that any User Generated Content that you send through the Services may be read or intercepted by others.

Red Hat maintains a strict policy of not accepting or considering any creative ideas, suggestions or materials from the public ("Unsolicited Idea(s)") and therefore you should not submit any Unsolicited Ideas to Red Hat in any User Generated Content on, to or through the Services or otherwise. Red Hat does not wish to receive Unsolicited Ideas from Attendees and has expressly advised Attendees not to submit them. If you nonetheless intend to submit an Unsolicited Idea, Red Hat strongly recommends that you first consult an attorney in order to evaluate the effect that submitting such an Unsolicited Idea would have on any rights that you might otherwise have.
Nonetheless, if an Attendee does send Red Hat an Unsolicited Idea that is not already protected by a United States patent or is not public information, it immediately becomes the property of Red Hat. By submitting an Unsolicited Idea to Red Hat, you agree to convey your ownership interest in the Unsolicited Idea to Red Hat, and that Red Hat will exclusively own all rights, title and interest therein. Furthermore, Red Hat will be free to use, without any compensation to you whatsoever, any concepts, ideas, know-how or techniques contained in any Unsolicited Idea for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to developing, manufacturing, and marketing products using such information. Red Hat will not be liable for such use or disclosure of such Unsolicited Idea or for any similarities in the Unsolicited Idea and any future Red Hat uses or activities.
As an Attendee of Event, you understand that at activities and promotions offered at the Event by Red Hat, you may be photographed and/or recorded, including User Generated Content. You hereby irrevocably consent and authorize Red Hat to use any image of your appearance, including without limitation any photo, video, or likeness, (collectively, “Images”) that Red Hat has taken while you attend the Event, or any User Generated Content for any and all purposes deemed appropriate by Red Hat, which may include, but are not limited to, use in a promotional video, film, or photograph, and exhibition, a public display, commercials, art and advertising, or for any other related purpose on Red Hat’s website, in literature, publications, and on the internet without any fee whatsoever.

If an Attendee engages in behavior that doesn't comply with these expectations, Red Hat may take any action that it deems appropriate, including warning the Attendee, excluding the Attendee from certain activities, prohibiting the Attendee from attending or participating in future Red Hat events, terminating Attendee’s access to the Services, including without a refund (if applicable), and referring the matter to the local authorities. Attendees asked to stop any harassing or other unacceptable behavior are expected to comply immediately. If the Attendee is a Red Hat employee, Red Hat also reserves the right to take full disciplinary action pursuant to our internal policies.
Please note, while we take all concerns raised seriously, we will use our discretion to determine when and how to follow up on reported incidents, and may decline to take any further action and/or may direct the Attendee to other resources to address the concern.
