FORUMS AND PUBLIC COMMUNICATION "Forum" means any chat area, message board, or e-mail function that may at any time be offered as part of any JHALPE.com Site. If you participate in any Forum within a JHALPE.com, you must not: defame, abuse, harass or threaten others; make any bigoted, hateful, or racially offensive statements; advocate illegal activity or discuss illegal activities with the intent to commit them; post or distribute any material that infringes and/or violates any right of a third party or any law; post or distribute any vulgar, obscene, discourteous, or indecent language or images; advertise or sell to or solicit others; use the Forum for commercial purposes of any kind; post or distribute any software or other materials that contain a virus or other harmful component; or post material or make statements that do not generally pertain to the designated topic or theme of any chat room or bulletin board. It is our policy to respect the privacy of all customers. Therefore, in addition to the privacy of Registration data (see our Privacy Policy), we will not monitor, edit, or disclose the contents of a customer's e-mail unless (a) you authorize us to do so, (b) we must do so in order to resolve technical problems on any JHALPE.com Site; or (c) unless required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (1) comply with the law or comply with legal process served on us; (2) protect and defend our rights or property; or (3) act in an emergency to protect the safety of our customers or the public. Customers shall remain solely responsible for the content of their messages. We reserve the right to remove or edit content from any Forum at any time and for any reason. By uploading materials to any Forum or submitting any materials to us, you automatically grant (or warrant that the owner of such materials expressly granted) us a perpetual, royalty-free, irrevocable, nonexclusive right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform and display, create derivative works from and distribute such materials or incorporate such materials into any form, medium, or technology now known or later developed throughout the universe. In addition, you warrant that all so-called "moral rights" in those materials have been waived. 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 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, purchase, sale or investment decisions made based on such information.

CONTENT LINKED TO ANY JHALPE.COM SITE Please exercise discretion while browsing the Internet using any JHALPE.com Site. You should be aware that when you are on a JHALPE.com Site, you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from JHALPE.com 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 JHALPE.com Site. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors, and content partners that may use our logo(s) as part of a co-branding agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, solicit personal information, or contain information that you may find inappropriate or offensive. In addition, advertisers on JHALPE.com Sites may send cookies to users that we do not control. We reserve the right to disable links from third-party sites to any JHALPE.com Site. 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 JHALPE.com Site. 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. While JHALPE.com strives to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online; you make such disclosures at your own risk.
