You are encouraged to maintain copies on Your own computer or local network and to use the latest encryption and other security technology to protect Your Content.
3.3 Sharing Your Content. Some Services permit You to share Your Content. You understand that if You choose to share Your Content (whether by emailing, sharing a link, posting in a Forum or other public areas or in shared areas available to other users You have chosen, or by any other available sharing mechanism), that anyone You have shared Your Content with may use Your Content. You agree that when You give others access to Your Content in connection with the Service, You grant them free, non-exclusive permission to use, reproduce, manipulate, distribute, display, transmit, and communicate Your Content based on the permissions You have allocated to them within the Service (if applicable). If You do not want others to have those rights, do not use the Service to share Your Content.
Autodesk Parties have no control over and (without limiting Section 3.2), shall have no liability for any damages resulting from the use or misuse by any third party of Your Content that You choose to share through a Service, directly or indirectly, or any Forum. IF YOU CHOOSE TO SHARE YOUR CONTENT OR MAKE YOUR CONTENT AVAILABLE IN A FORUM OR OTHERWISE IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE, YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK.
3.4 Publishing to Forum. You may be able to publish Your Content to a Forum in connection with the Service. You agree that by making such a submission, that Your Submission is non-confidential and You automatically grant (or warrant that the owner of such rights has expressly granted) to Autodesk and any operator or host of such Forum a perpetual, royalty-free, fully paid-up, irrevocable, nonexclusive, sublicenseable (through multiple tiers) right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, perform and display (whether publicly or otherwise), transmit and distribute Your Submission in any form, medium, or technology now known or later developed and You waive “moral” rights or other rights with respect to attribution of authorship or integrity that You may have under any applicable law and under any legal theory.
3.5 Third Party Content and Services. Third Party Content and services may be made available to You, directly or indirectly, through the Service (including Content shared by other users of the Service, through Forums or by any other means). In some cases, such Content and services may appear to be a feature or function within, or extension of, the Services or the Autodesk Software. Accessing such Content or services may cause Your Computer, without additional notice, to communicate with a third-party website—for example, for purposes of providing You with additional information, features and functionality. Such connectivity to websites of third parties is governed by the terms (including the disclaimers and notices) found on such sites or otherwise associated with the third-party Content or services. You agree that any viewing or use of Third Party Content or services by You is at Your sole risk. Under no circumstances will Autodesk Parties be liable for any loss or damage caused by Your viewing, use (including, without limitation, republication) or reliance on Third Party Content or services. Autodesk does not test, screen, control, endorse, or accept responsibility for any such third-party Content or services (including, without limitation, errors or omissions) or the results obtained by using any Third Party Content or services, and any dealings between You and any third party in connection with such Content or services, including, without limitation, such third party’s privacy policies, use of personal information, delivery of and payment for goods and services, and any other terms associated with such dealings, are solely between You and such third party. Autodesk may at any time, for any reason, modify or discontinue the availability of any third-party Content or services. Access to and use of certain Content and services (whether of Autodesk or third parties) may require assent to separate terms and/or payment of additional fees.
3.6 Communications Network.

3.7 Deleting Your Content. Some Services permit You to delete Your Content from the Service (however, You understand it may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time). In addition to Autodesk’s rights to delete Your Content upon expiration or termination of these Terms under Section 10.2 (Effect of Termination), Autodesk reserves the right to delete inactive accounts or purge related Content (and all backups thereof), without further notice and Autodesk Parties shall have no responsibility or liability for deletion or any failure to store Your Content. Autodesk may remove any Content that is posted to the Service without notice if it believes that such Content is excessive in size or exceeds reasonable (or Entitlement) storage limits.
4.3 Service Providers; No Sensitive Personal Data. You acknowledge that Autodesk may use third-party service providers in connection with the Services, including without limitation the use of cloud computing service providers which may transmit, maintain and store Your data using third-party computers and equipment in locations around the globe. You acknowledge that any data storage functionality associated with the Services is not intended for the storage of Social Security numbers, credit or debit card numbers, financial account numbers, driver’s license numbers, medical information, health insurance information, sensitive data about personal characteristics such as race, religion, or sexual orientation, or other personal data that may pose a risk of harm to the individual if improperly disclosed (collectively, “Sensitive Personal Data”). You agree not to upload or otherwise submit any Sensitive Personal Data in connection with the Service and further agree that Autodesk Parties will have no responsibility or liability with respect to any such Sensitive Personal Data that is processed, transmitted, disclosed, or stored in connection with the Service.

You shall, at Your sole expense and to the fullest extent permitted by law, indemnify, defend (at Autodesk’s request), and hold harmless Autodesk Parties against any and all losses, liabilities, expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) suffered or incurred by Autodesk Parties by reason of any claim, suit or proceeding ("Claim") arising out of or in connection with: (a) Your Content or use of Your Content, including, without limitation, any assertion that Your Content or the use thereof may infringe any copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property or other rights of any individual or entity, or are a misappropriation of any individual or entity’s trade secret, or contain any libelous, defamatory, disparaging, pornographic, or obscene materials or use thereof caused death or bodily injury or damage to the real or tangible property of any third party; (b) any breach of or failure by You to comply with these Terms (including, without limitation, any Policies and Additional Agreements); or (c) use of the Service Offering by You (or anyone who accesses the Service through You pursuant to Section 1.3). If requested by Autodesk to defend a Claim, You will not agree to any settlement without the prior written consent of Autodesk, and Autodesk shall have the right to participate, at its own expense, in the defense of any Claim with counsel of its own choosing.

In addition, Autodesk may, as an alternative to termination, suspend the Service and Your access to the Service Offering, and/or other Autodesk obligations or Your rights under these Terms, if You fail to make a payment to Autodesk or a distributor or reseller authorized directly or indirectly by Autodesk or otherwise fail to comply with the provisions of these Terms or other terms relating to any such Service. Autodesk may also terminate this Agreement if You become subject to bankruptcy proceedings, become insolvent, or make an arrangement with Your creditors. These Terms will terminate automatically without further notice or action by Autodesk if You go into liquidation. You acknowledge and agree that Autodesk may assign or sub-contract any of its rights or obligations under these Terms. You may terminate these Terms at any time, with or without cause, effective upon notice of termination. Unless earlier terminated in accordance with this Section 10.1, these Terms shall automatically terminate on the first to occur of the (a) date or end of the term of the Service identified in Your Entitlements, (b) the expiration or termination of an Additional Agreement or the Special Service Terms, (c) the removal of the Service from the Separate Autodesk Product or Entitlement, or (d) the discontinuation of the Service by Autodesk.

10.2 Effect of Termination. Upon any termination of these Terms for any reason, You must immediately cease using the Service. Termination of these Terms does not affect, or give You any right to terminate, any Additional Agreement.
