Any content and/or opinions uploaded, expressed or submitted to a message board, chat room, newsgroup or similar communications service that may be available to you on or through a Site and all articles and responses to questions, are solely the opinions and responsibility of the person or entity submitting them and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Bdellium.

By uploading or otherwise transmitting material to any area of a Site, you warrant that the material is your own, is in the public domain, and is otherwise free of proprietary or other restrictions and that you have the right to use it, including by posting it to a Site.

Bdellium reserves the right, but does not assume any responsibility, to remove from a Site any material posted by you, which Bdellium, in its sole discretion, deems inconsistent with the foregoing commitments, including any material Bdellium has been notified, or has reason to believe, constitutes a copyright or other intellectual property right infringement. However, Bdellium can neither review all material prior to transmission on a Site nor ensure prompt action with respect to objectionable material after it is transmitted on a Site. Accordingly, Bdellium shall not have any liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications or other content that is provided by third parties.
