Introduction – Welcome to Our Website's User Agreement (hereinafter "Agreement" or "Terms and Conditions.") The provisions of this Agreement will govern Your use of Our Website(s), and You should therefore take some time to read the Agreement carefully. Our Website is different from many other websites on the Internet as it contains advertisements, communications, and links posted by independent third parties, over which We exert no control. We do not get involved in any disputes that may develop between Our advertisers and others, and We do not facilitate communication between third parties. Therefore, You are urged to use Your own good judgment and common sense when responding to such communications, as We are not responsible for any interactions occurring between Our Users and third parties. Federal law protects sites like Ours from civil claims, so We encourage You to independently research and carefully consider any information found in Our advertisements or any communications appearing on our Website, before making any decisions or taking any action. We hope that You thoroughly enjoy Our services, and anticipate that You will find Our Website entertaining and informative. Should You have any questions or comments regarding Our Website, or its policies, please feel free to contact Us.

To access the Site or some of the resources it has to offer, You may be asked to provide certain registration details or other information. In order to verify Your identity, some of this information may be personal, private or detailed. In connection with completing the online registration form, You agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about Yourself as prompted by the registration form (such information being the "Registration Data"); and You further agree to maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete at all times while You are a Member.

You must promptly inform Us of all changes, including, but not limited to, changes in Your address and changes in Your credit card used in connection with billing and/or payment for the Site and Services, if applicable.

We are committed to making the use of Our Site a safe and pleasant experience for Our Members.

Section 230 Notice: You acknowledge Your responsibility to prevent minors under Your care from accessing harmful or inappropriate material. You agree not to allow minors to view any such content, and You agree to take responsible measures to prevent them from doing so.

Pursuant to the Communications Decency Act ("CDA"), 47 U.S.C. § 230(c)(1), and court decisions interpreting the scope of the CDA, You acknowledge and understand that We operate as the provider of an interactive computer service. Thus, We are immune from, and cannot be held responsible for, claims arising from the publication or transmission of Your Content as well as the content of other Users and third parties. We do not create such content, and We are not responsible for the publication of remarks or communications of third-parties that may arguably rise to the level of being actionable under federal or state laws including, but not limited to, the publication of material that might be considered defamatory, or violative of privacy or publicity rights. Note, that federal law allows Us to remove or block any content found to be offensive, defamatory, obscene or otherwise violative of Our policies, without impacting Our status as the provider of an interactive computer service. Nothing contained in this Agreement is intended to limit or alter the immunity from claims provided by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, and no third parties are intended to benefit from this Agreement between You and Us.
License To Use Your Information and Content: With the exception of personal financial and billing information, You hereby grant to Us the perpetual, unlimited, royalty-free, worldwide, non-exclusive, irrevocable, transferable license to run, display, copy, reproduce, publish, bundle, distribute, market, create derivative works of, adapt, translate, transmit, arrange, modify, sub-license, export, merge, transfer, loan, rent, lease, assign, share, outsource, host, make available to any person or otherwise use, any text, images, data, video or other information and content You provide on or through this Site or which is sent to Us or others by text, e-mail or other correspondence, for any purpose whatsoever.

You specifically agree to pay these amounts. In agreeing to pay liquidated damages, You acknowledge that this amount is not a penalty, that the actual damages are uncertain and difficult to ascertain, but that this amount represents the parties' good faith attempt to calculate an appropriate compensation based on anticipated actual damages.
For any breach of a portion of this Agreement that does not specifically state a liquidated damages amount, You hereby agree that any breach of this Agreement shall result in liquidated damages of one hundred dollars ($100) per occurrence.

Fraud and Scam Warning: The Site specifically and emphatically warns Members never to send money to anyone that they meet on the Site. The Site has no way of determining the validity of any communication that You receive from another Member or the validity of the person behind such communication. It is a violation of Site's policy to solicit money from or to send money to any Member on the Site. It is the responsibility of each Member to inform Us of any request made by another Member for money or any correspondence received from another Member involving a financial transaction. While We are not obligated to investigate any such report, We may do so in Our sole discretion.
You hereby discharge, acquit, and otherwise release Company, its parent company, its agents, employees, officers, directors, shareholders, attorneys, and affiliates, from any and all allegations, counts, charges, debts, causes of action, and claims relating in any way to the use of, or activities relating to the use of the Site and Services including, but not limited to claims relating to the following:
In no event shall We (or Our licensors, agents, suppliers, resellers, service providers, or any other subscribers or suppliers) be liable to You, or any other third party for any direct, special, indirect, incidental, consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages, including without limitation, damages for loss of profits, loss of information, business interruption, revenue, or goodwill, which may arise from any person's use, misuse, or inability to use the Site, Services, or any of the materials contained therein, even if We have been advised of the probability of such damages. This is for any matter arising out of or relating to this Agreement, whether such liability is asserted on the basis of contract, tort or otherwise, even if We have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
In no event shall Our maximum total aggregate liability hereunder for direct damages exceed the total fees actually paid by You for use of the Site or Services for a period of no more than one (1) month from the accrual of the applicable cause or causes of action or ten dollars ($10.00), whichever is greater. Because some jurisdictions prohibit the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to You.

Nevertheless, We recognize that despite this protection, there may occasionally be content posted by Our Users that is unappreciated by the subject of the User-posted content.
