Description of Content and Service
Teen Teams is a National High School ALL SPORTS Tournament. Sponsorship dollars and team registrations fees shall establish a pool of prize money to be funneled back into our high school communities. At the end of the sport season, the leading teams in each category will receive both recognition and reward.
To collect the required data, Teen Teams will provide all registered High Schools, basic school and team templated web pages. These pages are to be maintained by the School selected responsible parties, “the user,” in accordance to the User Conduct Regulations stipulated within this agreement.
Teen Teams, partnered with tZINE, will also provide additional opportunities for professional exposure to the students of JOURNALISM, PHOTOGRAPHY, GRAPHICS, ILLUSTRATION and WEB DESIGN by rewarding and publishing the "winning" submissions in the appropriate areas.
You understand that all information, data, text, software, photographs, graphics, video, messages or other materials, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, are the sole responsibility of the person with which such Content originated ("User Content"). Teen Teams does not control the User Content posted via templated school or team pages, chat area, bulletin board or e-mail function and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such User Content. You understand that by using the Service, you may be exposed to User Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable.
