Our Services are somewhat diverse, so sometimes additional terms or product requirements (including age requirements) may apply. Additional terms will be available with the relevant Services, and those additional terms become part of these Terms if you use those Services.

You must follow any policies made available to you within these Services and any other service we may offer.
Don’t misuse our Services. For example, don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as permitted by law. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you, at any time and without notice, if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.
Accessing and using our website is your agreement to comply with our Terms.
Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access. You may not use content from our Services unless you obtain prior, written permission from the owner of that content or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.
Our Services display some content that is not ours. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law, at our sole discretion. But that does not necessarily mean that we review content, so please don’t ever assume that we do.

Your Content in our Services
Some of our Services allow you to upload, submit, store, send or receive content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you is yours.
When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to, or through, our Services you give ATN (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services. Some of our Services may offer you ways to access and remove content that has been provided through that Service. Also, in some of our Services, there may be terms or conditions that narrow the scope of our use of the content submitted in those Services. Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Services.
If you have a ATN account, personal or business, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on ATN or on third-party applications which we use, including displaying in ads and other commercial contexts.

SUSPENSION OR TERMINATION OF ACCOUNTS.

We use the following suspension process and times:

2nd offense – 1 week;

Any subsequent violation of these Terms will result in your account being terminated.
Modifying and Terminating our Services
We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or remove functionalities or features, and we may suspend or stop a service, altogether.

About these Terms
We may, at any time and in our sole discretion, modify these terms or any additional terms that apply to a Service to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services. You should look at the terms regularly. We’ll post notice of modifications to these terms on this page. We’ll post notice of modified additional terms in any applicable Service. Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than fourteen days after they are posted. However, changes addressing new functions for a Service or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of that Service.
If there is a conflict between these terms and any additional terms regarding our Services, the additional terms will control for that conflict.
These terms control the relationship between you and ATN. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights.
If you do not comply with these terms, and we don’t take action right away, our inaction doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future).
Any dispute arising out of these Terms will be resolved through binding arbitration before an arbitrator mutually acceptable to you and ATN, located in Chattanooga, TN, and authorized to practice such arbitration as determined by the laws of the State of Tennessee, USA. The decision of the arbitrator is binding and final and is not appealable by either you or us.
If any part or portion of these Terms is determined by an arbitrator of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable as a matter of law then all remaining parts and portions, hereof, will remain in full force and effect.
