Techstrong reserves the right to review all communication, media, and other materials prior to submission to the Websites and the right to remove any such submission for any reason, at any time, without prior notice, in its sole discretion. However, Techstrong does not undertake to review communications, media, and other materials before it is posted on the Websites and, therefore, cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted. Accordingly, Techstrong assumes no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications, or content provided by You or third party. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this section.
If You submit comments, ideas, or feedback to us, You agree that We can use them without any restriction or compensation to You. We do not waive rights to use similar or related ideas or feedback previously known to us, developed by Techstrong, or obtained from sources other than You. Our Websites may contain functionality (including blogs, forums, and message boards) which allow individuals to upload and post content and comments to our Websites (collectively “Forums”). You agree that You will not upload or transmit any communications or content of any type to the Forums that infringe or violate any rights of any party or violate any applicable laws. By submitting communications or content to the Forums, You agree that such submission is non-confidential for all purposes.
If You use a FORUM, You are solely responsible for Your own communications AND the consequences of posting those communications. Techstrong, its employees and contributors shall not be responsible for the content and statements posted IN THE PUBLIC AREAS and shall have no liability for any Direct, indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages, lost profits or injuries that result directly or indirectly from the use of the PUBLIC AREAS or reliance on the information or content posted IN THE PUBLIC AREAS.

By uploading any Content to the Websites or the Forums, You (a) warrant that You have explicit permission from the Content owner and, where appropriate, all persons appearing in your Content, for You to post the Content to the Websites and/or the Forums, (b) grant to Techstrong a perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license to use, copy, print, display, reproduce, modify, publish, post, transmit and distribute the Content; and (c) agree to indemnify Techstrong and its affiliates, directors, officers, and employees and hold them harmless from any and all claims and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, arising from the Content and/or your failure to comply with these Terms.
