No Archive—Even if this Website includes features and functionality that permit you to upload certain Submissions to our services or systems, this Website is not and shall not function as an archive. Anheuser-Busch shall have no liability to you or any other person for loss, damage, or destruction to your Submission. You shall be solely responsible for maintaining independent archival and backup copies of any Submission.

United States Only—By using the Website, you agree and acknowledge that the Website is hosted in the United States. If you are attempting to access the Website from a physical location within the European Union, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure that differ from United States laws, please be advised that through your continued use of this Website, which is governed by U.S. law, this Terms of Use, and the Anheuser-Busch Privacy Policy, you are transferring your personal information to the United States and you consent to (a) such transfer, (b) the application of the laws of the United States and/or the State of Missouri with respect to any dispute arising from or related to the Privacy Policy and/or your use of the Website, other than such rules, regulations, case law, and/or international treaties that would result in the application of the laws of a jurisdiction other than the United States or the State of Missouri, and (c) the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the United States and the State of Missouri. Any claim or dispute between you and Anheuser-Busch that arises in whole or in part from your use of the Website or in connection with the Privacy Policy shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A. Each party hereby agrees that such court shall have in personam jurisdiction and venue with respect to such party, and each party hereby submits to the in personam jurisdiction and venue of such courts and waives any objection based on inconvenient forum.

Disclaimers—Without limiting the foregoing, the Content and all other features on the Website are provided to you "AS IS" and "AS AVAILABLE" without warranty of any kind with respect to the Website and/or Content, either express or implied, including but not limited to, fitness for a particular purpose, title, or non-infringement. Should applicable law not permit the foregoing exclusion of express or implied warranties, then Anheuser-Busch hereby grants the minimum express or implied warranty required by such applicable law. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from Anheuser-Busch, its employees, agents, suppliers or any other persons shall create any warranty, representation or guarantee not expressly stated in this section. Additionally, Anheuser-Busch does not make any warranties that the Website will be uninterrupted, secure or error free or that your use of the Website will meet your expectations, or that the Website, Content, or any portion thereof, is correct, accurate, or reliable. Anheuser-Busch reserves the right to change any part of the Website at anytime without notice.

Limitation of Liability—Your use of the Website is at your own risk. Neither Anheuser-Busch, its affiliates, nor any of their respective officers, directors, agents or other representatives will be liable for any damages, direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special, or punitive, including, without limitation, loss of data, income, profit or goodwill, loss of or damage to property and claims of third parties arising out of your access to or use of the Website or arising out of any action taken in response to or as a result of any Content or other information available on the Website, however caused, whether based on breach of contract, tort (including negligence), proprietary rights infringement, product liability or otherwise. The foregoing shall apply even if Anheuser-Busch was advised of the possibility of such damages. If you become dissatisfied in any way with the Website or its Terms of Use or Privacy Policy, your sole and exclusive remedy is to stop your use of the Website and its services. You hereby waive any and all claims against Anheuser-Busch and its affiliates, agents, representatives and licensors arising out of your use of the Website. Because some states do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain types of damages, these provisions may not apply to you. If any portion of this limitation on liability is found to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, then the aggregate liability of Anheuser-Busch and its affiliates shall not exceed one hundred dollars ($100.) The limitation of liability herein is a fundamental element of the basis of the bargain and reflects a fair allocation of risk. The Website would not be provided without such limitations and you agree that the limitations and exclusions of liability, disclaimers and exclusive remedies specified herein will survive even if found to have failed in their essential purpose.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act—Anheuser-Busch is committed to respecting and protecting the legal rights of copyright owners. As such, Anheuser-Busch adheres to the following notice and take down policy, in full compliance with Section 512(c)(3) of the DMCA (17 U.S.C. § 512 et seq.). If you believe any of the Content infringes upon your intellectual property rights, please submit a notification alleging such infringement (hereafter a "DMCA Takedown Notice"). To be valid, a DMCA Takedown Notice must (i) be provided to Anheuser-Busch’s designated agent, ("Copyright Agent"), as set forth below, and (ii) include the following:

  • A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
  • Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;
  • Identification of the material claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material;
  • Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail;
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
  • A statement that, under penalty of perjury, the information in the notification is accurate and you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Anheuser-Busch’s Copyright Agent to receive DMCA Takedown Notices is: email: trademarks@anheuser-busch.com. For clarity, only DMCA Takedown Notices should go to the Copyright Agent; any other feedback, comments, online purchases or other communications should be directed to the applicable customer service links posted on the Website. You acknowledge that in order for Anheuser-Busch to be authorized to takedown any Content, your DMCA Takedown Notice must comply with all of the requirements of this Section.

No Framing; Links; Third Party Sites—Framing, in-line linking or other methods of association with the Website are expressly prohibited without prior written approval from Anheuser-Busch.

Ability to Accept Terms of Use—You affirm that you are more than 21 years of age and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set forth in the Terms of Use, and to abide by and comply with the Terms of Use.

Assignment—The Terms of Use, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Anheuser-Busch without restriction.

Notice—From time to time, Anheuser-Busch may revise these Terms of Use. To help you stay current of any changes, Anheuser-Busch takes the following two steps: (1) Anheuser-Busch notes the date the Terms of Use was last updated below and (2) when Anheuser-Busch makes a change to the Terms of Use, Anheuser-Busch posts conspicuous announcements of such changes on the Website next to the link to these Terms and Conditions. Your use of the Website following the posting of any revised Terms of Use shall be deemed acceptance of the revised policy. Anheuser-Busch strongly recommends checking Terms of Use periodically. If, and only if, Anheuser-Busch makes revisions to the Terms of Use that result in a material lessening of the restrictions on Anheuser-Busch’s use or disclosure of your Personal Information, Anheuser-Busch will make a commercially reasonable attempt to obtain your consent before implementing such revisions with respect to such Personal Information. If you disagree with the provisions of the Terms of Use at any time, your sole remedy is to terminate your use of the Website and inform us of such termination as described in the Terms of Use. Continued use of the Website constitutes your agreement to the Terms of Use as in effect.

Miscellaneous—Anheuser-Busch’s failure to enforce any provision of the Terms of Use shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision nor of the right to enforce such provision. If any part of the Terms of Use is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law, including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Terms of Use shall continue in effect. A printed version of the Terms of Use and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to the Terms of Use to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
