Where we have specifically invited or requested user submitted content of any kind, we encourage members of the public to submit such content (e.g., user generated content, comments on content) to Dar Al-Manhal that they have created for consideration in connection with the website and any related programs (“User Submissions”). User Submissions remain the intellectual property of the individual user. By posting your content on the website, you expressly grant Dar Al-Manhal a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, fully paid-up worldwide, fully sub-licensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, transmit, perform and display such content and your name, voice, and/or likeness as contained in your user submission, in whole or in part, and in any form throughout the world in any media or technology, whether now known or hereafter discovered, including all promotion, advertising, marketing, merchandising, publicity and any other ancillary uses thereof, and including the unfettered right to sublicense such rights, in perpetuity throughout the universe. We may refuse or remove user submissions for any reason and without notice. All user submissions are deemed non-confidential and Dar Al-Manhal shall be under no obligation to maintain the confidentiality of any information, in whatever form, contained in any user submission.
By submitting any user submissions, you consent to the following rules:
- User submissions must not infringe on the copyright, trademark, patent or other intellectual property right of any third party.

You must obtain all necessary permissions from any individuals identified in or implicated by your User submission, including those shown in photographic content, and, in the case of minors, also from their parents or legal guardians, as appropriate.
- User submissions must be respectful of others. Epithets or other language or material intended to intimidate or to incite violence are strictly prohibited. Your user submission may not include any negative comments that are connected to race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or physical handicap or that are defamatory, slanderous, indecent, obscene, pornographic or sexually explicit.

All user submissions must comply with these rules and any additional guidelines posted on the website, as applicable. User submissions do not represent the views of Dar Al-Manhal or any individual associated with Dar Al-Manhal, and we do not control this content.

Removal of user submissions
We will not monitor, edit, or disclose the contents of a user’s email unless required in the course of normal maintenance of the website and its systems or unless required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (1) comply with the law or comply with legal process served on Dar Al-Manhal; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of Dar Al-Manhal, the website, or the users of Dar Al-Manhal; or (3) act in an emergency to protect the personal safety of our guests, the website, or the public.

However, we shall have the right in our sole discretion to edit, refuse to post or remove any material submitted to or posted on the website. Without limiting the foregoing, we shall have the right to remove any material that we find to be in violation of the provisions hereof or otherwise objectionable, and the additional right to deny any user who fails to conform to any provision of these terms access to the website.

Dar Al-Manhal may suspend or terminate any user’s access to all or any part of the website including any account thereon, without notice, for any reason in Dar Al-Manhal’s sole discretion, including without limitation Dar Al-Manhal’s belief that such access would violate any applicable law or would be harmful to the interests of Dar Al-Manhal or another user. Upon termination, you will lose access to the website and all content thereon. The obligations that you have to Dar Al-Manhal under these terms will continue even after we suspend or terminate your access to the website.
Neither Dar Al-Manhal nor you shall be responsible for damages or for delays or failures in performance resulting from acts or occurrences beyond their respective reasonable control, including, without limitation: fire, lightning, explosion, power surge or failure, water, war, revolution, civil commotion or acts of civil or military authorities or public enemies: any law, order, regulation, ordinance, or requirement of any government or legal body or any representative of any such government or legal body; or labor unrest, including without limitation, strikes, slowdowns, picketing, or boycotts; inability to secure raw materials, transportation facilities, fuel or energy shortages, or acts or omissions of other common carriers.
This agreement is the entire agreement between the user and Dar Al-Manhal and supersedes any prior understandings or agreements (written or oral).
