Consequently, Beat of the Week encourages you to maintain your own backup of your Content. In other words, Beat of the Week is not a backup service and you agree that you will not rely on the Service for the purposes of Content backup or storage. Beat of the Week will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the Services, or the loss of any Content.

It is Beat of the Week's policy not to accept or consider content, information, ideas, suggestions or other materials other than those we have specifically requested and to which certain specific terms, conditions and requirements may apply.

Accordingly, Beat of the Week does not accept unsolicited materials or ideas, and takes no responsibility for any materials or ideas so transmitted. If, despite our policy, you choose to send us content, information, ideas, suggestions, or other materials, you further agree that Beat of the Week is free to use any such content, information, ideas, suggestions or other materials, for any purposes whatsoever, including, without limitation, developing and marketing products and services, without any liability or payment of any kind to you.
