Submissions

Submissions made by users in connection with their use of the Wholesale Point Service (such as chat rooms, discussion boards, email and other electronic messaging services) and any other submissions, including but not limited to questions, comments, suggestions, ideas, plans, notes, drawings, original or creative materials or other information, provided by you in the form of email or submissions to Wholesale Point, are non-confidential and shall become the sole property of Wholesale Point.

The submission of any such materials to Wholesale Point irrevocably waives any and all "moral rights" in such materials, including the rights of paternity and integrity.

Interactive Areas

The Website may include discussion forums, chat rooms, auto-responders, establishing a User Account, emailing of confidential price lists, customer account log-in or other interactive areas ("Interactive Areas"). Use of any Interactive Area requires registration as a User and agreement with additional terms contained in this Agreement. Wholesale Point allows its customers and potential customers to establish a User Account in order to view special or confidential pricing and access services.

If you use a public area, such as a chat room, bulletin board or other User community (“Public Area”), you are solely responsible for your own communications, the consequences of posting those communications, and your reliance on any communications found in the Public Areas. Wholesale Point is not responsible for the consequences of any communications in the Public Areas. In cases where you feel threatened or believe someone else is in danger, you should contact your local law enforcement agency immediately. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately.

In consideration of being allowed to use the Public Areas, you agree that the following actions shall constitute a material breach of these Terms of Use:

  • Using a Public Area for any purpose in violation of local, state, national, or international laws;
  • Posting material that infringes on the intellectual property rights of others or on the privacy or publicity rights of others;
  • Posting material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, threatening, harassing, abusive, slanderous, hateful, or embarrassing to any other person or entity as determined by Wholesale Point in its sole discretion;
  • Posting advertisements or solicitations of business;
  • After receiving a warning, continuing to disrupt the normal flow of dialogue, or posting comments that are not related to the topic being discussed (unless it is clear the discussion is free-form);
  • Posting chain letters or pyramid schemes;
  • Impersonating another person;
  • Distributing viruses or other harmful computer code;
  • Harvesting or otherwise collecting information about others, including email addresses, without their identification for posting or viewing comments; consent;
  • Allowing any other person or entity to use your identification for posting or viewing comments
  • Posting the same note more than once or "spamming"; or
  • Engaging in any other conduct that restricts or inhibits any other person from using or enjoying the Public Area or the Website, or which, in the judgment of Wholesale Point, exposes Wholesale Point or any of its affiliates, customers or suppliers to any liability or detriment of any type.

Wholesale Point reserves the right (but is not obligated) to do any or all of the following:

  • Record the dialogue in public chat rooms.
  • Investigate an allegation that a communication does not conform to the terms of this section and determine in its sole discretion to remove or request the removal of the communication(s).

Registration and or use of these Interactive Areas by competitors or their employees, affiliates, officers or agents is expressly prohibited under any circumstance. Any access to an Interactive Area by such entity or individual is considered a material breach. By registration and or using any Interactive Areas, you warrant you are accessing these areas in good-faith in order to conduct business with us, you are not a competitor (defined as an entity or individual that offers the same or similar products and or services as Wholesale Point) nor affiliated with a competitor, nor will you use the information in anyway harmful to Wholesale Point and you will abide by all the conditions contained in these Terms of Use. You expressly agree to compensate Wholesale Point for violations of these terms. Compensation shall be the equal to One Hundred ($100) per access or attempted access to the Interactive Areas plus any additional costs, expenses, fees, loss of revenue as well as the costs and expenses to enforce and collect breaches of this provision. You agree to pay any and all additional costs to enforce these terms against you.
