Date of Last Revision: June 12, 2020
Dealers and Users:
The term “Dealers” as contained herein, refers to all automobile parts suppliers and retailers that provide content to be displayed on our Websites and to whom World Parts provides Services. Dealers may be required to further agree to terms and conditions supplemental to this Agreement (the "Supplemental Agreement".) This Agreement shall be incorporated by reference into any Supplemental Agreement. Where clauses between this Agreement and any Supplemental Agreement conflict, the Supplemental Agreement will be the controlling agreement.
The term “Users” as contained herein, refers to all public consumers that access or use the Websites via the Internet to purchase automobile parts from a Dealer. Users have no capability of directly adding content to the Websites. The term “User” as contained herein, also refers to any party that gains access to the Websites via World Parts' publicly available URLs and is a consumer of the information contained therein.
World Parts reserves the right to change or revise this Agreement at any time by posting a notification of changes on the registration page of the Websites. No notification of such revisions will be made known by any other mechanism. World Parts will notify you of revision dates by posting the last revised date preceding the first paragraph of this Agreement. The revised Agreement will take effect immediately after it has been posted on the Websites. Once you click on “I Agree” to accept this Agreement during the registration process, then an enforceable Agreement exists between you and World Parts. Your continued use of the Websites after the posting of a modification notification and clicking “I Agree” will signify your acceptance of any such changes or revisions to this Agreement. If this Agreement changes in any material way with respect to terms and conditions that apply to a Dealer, then the Dealer will be notified to re-register on our Website and click on the “I Agree” button that corresponds to acceptance of the modifications. Otherwise no such re-registration will be required. During registration World Parts logs the last revised date of this Agreement with the other information provided by a User or Dealer. World Parts uses this mechanism to determine the version of this Agreement under which a User or Dealer registered. This is done so that the correct and accurate version of this Agreement, used during registration, can be produced should a dispute subsequently arise wherein a specific version of this Agreement becomes relevant.
You, as a Dealer, retain all ownership rights to content which you are a lawful owner or licensee of, and which you make available on the Websites via whatever mechanism that World Parts provides (the “Dealer Content”), excluding "Transmissions" as defined herein, and subject to any other rights granted to World Parts under this Agreement. However, by submitting Dealer Content to World Parts, you grant World Parts an exclusive, non-transferable and fully paid license to copy, crop, reproduce, reformat, translate, publicly display and excerpt (in whole or in part) your Dealer Content solely for the purpose of providing the Services. The license to use Dealer Content expires when we remove your Dealer Content from the Websites or when the Service Agreement is terminated. In the event of such termination, World Parts agrees to destroy or return to you any Dealer Content in its possession.
Dealer represents, warrants, and guarantees that Dealer has the full right, ability, and authority to make the Dealer Content available on the Websites. Dealer further represents, warrants, and guarantees that by making available any Dealer Content on the Websites, Dealer is not violating any obligation owed by Dealer to any third party, including without limitation obligations of confidentiality, privacy, attribution or any intellectual property rights including, but not limited to, rights related to patent, trademark, copyright, or trade secrets.

You agree that the data in the Databases contains confidential information, and that World Parts and/or its licensors own all rights in the Databases and the data contained therein, including without limitation all copyright and other proprietary rights.
