We may provide a variety of services on the Services through which you can directly interact with others, such as email services, blogging services, chat rooms, communications tools, forums, classifieds and other user-submitted advertising, and other public posting areas (“Communications Services”). We cannot and do not review every posting made in our blogs, chat rooms, forums, and other areas available for public postings. You may well read any given posting before anyone on our staff does. You can expect these areas to include information and opinions from a variety of individuals and organizations other than us. We do not endorse or guarantee the accuracy of any posting, regardless of whether the posting comes from a user, from a celebrity or “expert” guest, or from a member of our staff, and we are not responsible or liable for, and do not assume any responsibility in respect of, the views and opinions expressed. We encourage an open exchange of information and ideas, but want everyone to be able to enjoy these Communications Services.
We do not, in the ordinary course of business, review private electronic messages that are not addressed to us. However, we reserve the right to do so and to use any other forms of information available to us by virtue of your use of the Services (including, for example, reverse IP address inquiry) in order to comply with the law, to enforce our Usage Agreement, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to the Services, our customers, the public or blok group and its owners, affiliates, licensors or licensees. We reserve the right (but assume no obligation) to review the content of the Services, including blogs, message boards, chat rooms, listings, forums, and other information posted to the website to determine compliance with this Usage Agreement and operating rules established by us, and to satisfy any law, regulation or authorized government request. We shall have the right, in our sole discretion, to delete, move, refuse to post, or edit any messages, listings or other postings that come to our attention that we consider unacceptable or inappropriate, whether for legal or other reasons.
By using the Services, you agree not to post, submit or transmit through the Services any material that violates or infringes in any way upon the rights of others, that is unlawful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, libelous, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, vulgar, obscene, profane, misleading, fraudulent or otherwise objectionable, that encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense or give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any law, or that, without our express prior approval, contains advertising or any solicitation with respect to products or services. The sender of any communications to the Services or otherwise to the owners of the Services shall be solely responsible for the content and information contained therein, including its truthfulness and accuracy. By posting content, you represent and warrant that you either own or otherwise control all rights necessary for you to provide, post, upload or submit that content. Without limiting the foregoing, you shall be solely liable for any damage resulting from any infringement of copyrights, proprietary rights, or any other harm resulting from any content or other material submitted by you to or through the Services. We reserve the right to deny access to or limit privileges in respect of any Communications Service to anyone who violates this Usage Agreement or who, in our judgment, interferes with the ability of others to enjoy the Services or infringes the rights of others. We will comply with the requirements of the law regarding disclosure of any messages to others, including law enforcement agencies.
