Any opinions, advice, statements, services, offers, or other information or content expressed or made available by third parties or any other user are those of the respective author(s) and not of the Foundation. The posting of information by users, whether or not reviewed by the Foundation shall not be attributed to the Foundation or its program materials at any level.

The Foundation reserves the right to monitor Forums to determine compliance with these Terms, as well the right to remove or refuse to post any posting. Notwithstanding these rights, Users remain solely responsible for the content of their postings. User acknowledges and agrees that neither the Foundation nor any third party content provider will assume or have any liability for any action or inaction by the Foundation or any third party content provider with respect to any posting on the Forums. In the event of a posting by the User, the User shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Foundation, its Licensors, content providers, service providers and contractors from any damages, claims or causes of action associated with such User postings. Further, User hereby grants to Foundation the royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, and display any message posted in Forums (in whole or in part) worldwide or to incorporate any message in other works in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed.

User agrees that visits to linked sites are at User’s own risk and governed by the linked sites’ privacy policies (if any). User may not link or shortcut to the Web Site from web sites, blogs, or similar applications, without obtaining prior written permission from the Foundation.

10. Governing Law and Exclusive Jurisdiction

12. Termination or Cancellation

User lacks continuing rights to use the Web Site and the Foundation may deny or suspend access, or terminate or cancel User’s right to use the Web Site with or without cause and with or without notice and at any time and without prior notice. Termination or cancellation will not eliminate the surviving provisions of these Terms and User will still be liable for obligations incurred before User’s access ended.

13. Entire Agreement

These Terms, including the Privacy Policy, Amendments, and any notices, terms and items incorporated into any of them including additional terms and conditions contained on the Web Site for particular activities or Content constitute the entire agreement between User and the Foundation regarding the Web Site (collectively, “Entire Agreement”).

User may not use any of the above or other copyrights or trademarks displayed on this Web Site or in any Content. All rights are reserved.

15. Miscellaneous

The Foundation’s failure to act with respect to a breach by User or any other user does not waive the Foundation’s right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. Time is of the essence of the Entire Agreement and there are no third party beneficiaries of it. These Terms and the Foundation’s rights under the Privacy Policy will survive termination or cancellation of this Agreement. User may not assign these Terms or any of User’s rights or obligations under these Terms without our prior written consent.
