2. SUBMISSIONS/COMMUNICATIONS

Panther Nation has a policy that does not allow Panther Nation to accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions or materials other than those Panther Nation has specifically requested.

In addition, you warrant that all so-called moral rights in and to any Information are waived.

By submitting materials to the Site or Panther Nation, you represent that such materials are accurate and original with you and do not violate the rights of any third parties, including, without limitation, any intellectual property rights, rights of publicity and/or privacy.
