THE REALGM PUBLIC DISCUSSION FORUMS
NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR POSTS
RealGM makes public discussion forums available to visitors (“RealGM Forums”) and these have grown to be extremely popular places for sports fans to meet and chat. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information. Consequently the Visitor should exercise extreme caution when deciding whether to disclose private and/or personal information on the RealGM Forums, which RealGM strongly advises all visitors against.
The following are more legal notices regarding the Posts: The Visitor must have all necessary rights in and to all the Posts that the Visitor provides and all materials they contain; the Visitor’s Posts must not infringe any proprietary or other rights of third parties; the Visitor’s Posts must not contain any viruses or other contaminating or destructive devices or features; the Visitor’s Posts must not contain any defamatory, indecent, offensive, tortious or otherwise unlawful materials or content; and the Visitor’s Posts must not be used to carry out or solicit any unlawful activity and/or be used to make commercial solicitations. In addition, the Visitor authorizes RealGM and/or others to use all or part of the Visitor’s Posts in any manner, format or medium that RealGM or such other parties see fit; and the Visitor shall have no claim or other recourse against RealGM for infringement of any proprietary right in the Visitor’s Posts. Violating these terms will subject the Visitor to investigation and enforcement to ensure compliance; personal information may be used and/or disclosed by RealGM in this process, to the extent necessary to ensure a safe, secure and enjoyable experience at RealGM.com.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable laws, RealGM shall in no event have any responsibility or liability for the Postings or for any claims, damages or losses resulting from their use and/or appearance on RealGM.com.
