It is your responsibility to check these Terms of Service periodically for changes. Your continued use of S-Drive following the posting of changes will mean that you accept and agree to the changes.
YOUR USE OF S-DRIVE: You are responsible for maintaining the security of your CoffeeCup and S-Drive account, and you are fully responsible for all actions and activities that occur under the account. If you allow any third party to access your account or to contribute Content (as defined below), you are entirely responsible for their actions and Content, and any harm resulting from that Content.

ADDING CONTENT: S-Drive is an easy way to publish, distribute and share (“add”) digital materials, including but not limited to pictures, articles, web sites, online stores, texts, music, home videos and any other digital material (any material “Content”). Content added to S-Drive is owned by the party contributing such Content. However, by adding Content to S-Drive you represent that you have all rights and authorizations necessary to post, submit, display, distribute, produce, or otherwise transmit, such Content.
Furthermore, by adding Content to S-Drive you give CoffeeCup non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, transferable right and license (with the right to sublicense), to use, copy, cache, publish, display, distribute, modify, produce, create derivative works and store such Content and to allow others to do so (“Content License”) solely for the purpose of, and in order to, provide the S-Drive Services.

However, the remaining provisions of these Terms of Service shall be unimpaired and remain in full force and effect. Nor CoffeeCup, nor Network Solutions shall not be liable for any deletion of the Domain Name registrations whether such deletion is inadvertent or in accordance with the Service Agreement.
