You hereby grant to Beer Mapping a nontransferable, nonexclusive license during the Term to use Your Brand Features to advertise that You are using the Service.

In using Beer Mapping Brand Features, you may not:

At no time during or after the Term shall You challenge or assist others to challenge the Brand Features of Beer Mapping (except to the extent such restriction is prohibited by law) or the registration thereof by Beer Mapping, nor shall You attempt to register any Brand Features (including domain names) that are confusingly similar in any way (including but not limited to, sound, appearance and spelling) to those of Beer Mapping.

If You desire to terminate the Terms of Service, You must remove the Service from Your Site.

Beer Mapping shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to reject any request to use the Service at any time and for any reason, and such rejection shall render null and void the Terms of Service between You and Beer Mapping.
