SUBMISSIONS

We are pleased to hear from our visitors and welcome your comments regarding our products and services. If, through participation in certain activities, you send any material (e.g., classified advertisement, listing, stories etc) or, despite our request, you send us unsolicited creative suggestions, ideas, notes, images, concepts, or other information (collectively, the "Submissions"), the Submissions shall be deemed, and shall remain, our property. None of the Submissions shall be subject to any obligation of confidentiality on our part and we shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submissions. Without limitation of the foregoing, we shall exclusively own all now-known or hereafter existing rights to the Submissions of every kind and nature throughout the universe and shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the Submissions for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to the provider of the Submissions or any other person or entity.

FORUMS AND PUBLIC COMMUNICATION

"Forum" means a chat area, message board, instant messaging, mobile messaging or e-mail function (including, but not limited to, electronic greeting cards) offered as part of any PLUG Site. If you participate in any Forum within a PLUG Site, you agree to follow our terms set forth below.

You acknowledge that anything you submit to a PLUG Site by way of any Forum is routed through PLUG's servers and the Internet and that, therefore, you have no expectation of privacy with regard to any such submission. You acknowledge that the Forums and features on PLUG Sites are forums for public and not private communications. Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online, for example, via message boards or chat, that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. We cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online; you make such disclosures at your own risk.

Users or visitors shall remain solely responsible for the content of their messages in the Forums. We are not responsible for the content or opinions posted or sent by users in any Forum. You take responsibility for postings under your username and use the information provided in the Forums at your own risk. We reserve the right to remove or edit content from any Forum at any time and for any reason although we have no duty to do so.

When participating in a Forum, never assume that people are who they say they are, know what they say they know, or are affiliated with whom they say they are affiliated with in any chat room, message board, or other user-generated content area. Information obtained in a Forum may not be reliable, and it is not a good idea to take any action, including to trade or make any investment decisions, based solely or largely on information you cannot confirm. We cannot be responsible for the content or accuracy of any information, and shall not be responsible for any trading, investment, or any other decisions made based on such information.

  2. Post, distribute, or otherwise make available or transmit any data, text, message, computer file, or other material that infringes and/or violates any right of a third party or any domestic or international law, rule, or regulation, including but not limited to: (a) copyright, patent, trademark, or other proprietary rights; (b) right of privacy (specifically, you must not distribute another person's personal information of any kind without their express permission) or publicity; (c) any confidentiality obligation;
  3. Advertise or sell any products, services or otherwise (whether or not for profit), or solicit others or use any Forum for commercial purposes of any kind,
  4. Post, distribute, or otherwise make available or transmit any software or other computer files that contain a virus or other harmful component;
  5. Impersonate any person or entity or misrepresent your identity or affiliation with any person or entity;
    Engage in antisocial, disruptive, or destructive acts, including "flaming," "spamming," "flooding," "trolling," and "griefing" as those terms are commonly understood and used on the Internet;

Additionally, you may use electronic greeting cards or mobile messaging for noncommercial purposes only. You must furnish your actual e-mail address or mobile phone number in order to send a card or message. Any business use, "remailing," or other high-volume application is strictly prohibited. You are not permitted to send cards or messages using an automated program. Electronic greeting cards and mobile messages may not contain inappropriate language or images or copyrighted material (without the consent of the copyright holder) or encourage illegal activity. Electronic greeting cards and mobile messages that violate these guidelines will not be delivered.

We reserve the right to remove any material, and if we deem appropriate, to turn over to law enforcement officials, any material, including message, e-mail, or posting, that is in violation of these House Rules. We also reserve the right to remove messages, e-mails, or postings that do not pertain to the designated topic or theme of the Forum.

We also reserve the right to comply with any order or otherwise cooperate with law enforcement officials regarding the identification of any user alleged to be using a PLUG site in violation of the law.

CONTENT LINKED TO ANY PLUG SITE

You should be aware that when you are on a PLUG Site, you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from PLUG pages that take you outside of our service. For example, if you click on a banner advertisement or a search result, the click may take you off the PLUG Site. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors, and content partners that may use our logo(s) as part of a co-branding relationship. You acknowledge that when you click on a link that leaves a PLUG Site the site you will land on is not controlled by us and different terms of use and privacy policy may apply. By clicking on links to other sites, you acknowledge that PLUG is not responsible for those sites. We reserve the right to disable links from third-party sites to any PLUG Site, although we are under no obligation to do so.

We make no representations concerning the content of sites listed in any of our directories. Consequently, we cannot be held responsible for the accuracy, relevancy, copyright compliance, legality, or decency of material contained in sites listed in our search results or otherwise linked to a PLUG Site.
