Your Information must not:
- Be false, inaccurate or misleading;
- Be fraudulent or involve the sale of counterfeit or stolen items;
- Infringe any third party’s copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy;
- Violate any applicable law, statute, ordinance or regulation (including, but not limited to, those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, criminal law, antidiscrimination or trade practices/fair trading laws);

- Create liability for us or cause us to lose (in whole or in part) the services of our ISPs or other suppliers.
Solely to enable us to use the information you supply us with, so that we are not violating any rights you might have in that information, you agree to grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise the copyright, publicity, and database rights you have in Your Information, in any media now known or not currently known, with respect to Your Information.

IN NO EVENT SHALL WE, OUR AFFILIATES AND RELATED ENTITIES OR OUR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR LOST PROFITS OR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH OUR SITE, OUR SERVICES OR THIS AGREEMENT (HOWEVER ARISING, INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE). YOU AGREE TO ACCEPT SOLE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE LEGALITY OF YOUR ACTIONS UNDER THE LAWS WHICH APPLY TO YOU. YOU AGREE THAT WE AND ALL OUR AFFILIATES AND RELATED ENTITIES HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE LEGALITY OF OUR MEMBERS’ ACTIONS.
