Without this license, teamthing.com would be unable to provide the Services. The license you grant to teamthing.com is non-exclusive (meaning you are free to license your Content to anyone else in addition to teamthing.com), fully-paid and royalty-free (meaning that teamthing.com is not required to pay you for the use on the Services of the Content that you post), transferable and sub-licensable (so that teamthing.com is able to use its affiliates and subcontractors such as Internet content delivery networks to provide the Services), and worldwide (because the Internet and the Services are global in reach). Unless you have shared your Content with others, and they have not deleted it, this license will terminate at the time you remove your Content from the Services, but you understand and agree that your Content may continue to appear on teamthing.com or Websites after you remove it from the Services as portion of your Content may remain on pages cached by third parties, incorporated into RSS feeds, User profiles or other features, or archived on servers. Furthermore, when you publish any Content or information using the “everyone” or “public” settings, it means that everyone, including people off of teamthing.com, will have access to that information and we may not have control over what they do with it.

You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owing any person by reason of any Content posted by you to or through the Services.
