As a user of the Site, you may provide content (including, without limitation, text or photographs or other graphics), e-mail communications, project information, or other information that is posted on or through the Site (collectively, as provided by any user "Forum Informationā€¯). You acknowledge that (i) RYW does not pre-screen Forum Information; (ii) RYW does not endorse or adopt (and has not necessarily reviewed) any Forum Information nor assumes any responsibility for any material therein; and (iii) RYW shall have the right (but not the obligation) in its sole discretion to refuse or remove any Forum Information on the Site and to edit or delete any objectionable material. If you believe that RYW has acted mistakenly with respect to certain Forum Information or other content, you may contact us at info@RenovateYourWorld.com, in which case we may investigate the matter further. We reserve the right, however, to take no further action. In the event you have a dispute with one or more users, you release us from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. In the event that you post or make accessible communications or other materials that infringe the copyrights of a third party, RYW shall terminate your access to the Site in accordance with RYW's copyright infringement policy pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, as further described in Section 17. It is RYW's policy not to tolerate any acts of intellectual property infringement or violations of law or to allow for any objectionable material to be posted at the Site. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to remove, disable or restrict access to or the availability of Forum Information that, in our view, is objectionable, provided that we shall have no contractual obligation to undertake, or refrain from undertaking, any particular course of conduct. If you believe someone has posted Forum Information which is objectionable (other than cases of copyright infringement, which is addressed in Section 17 below), we ask you to promptly notify us by email at the following address info@RenovateYourWorld.com. You must use this address if you want to ensure that your complaint is actually received by the appropriate person charged with investigating alleged policy violations. In order to allow us to respond effectively, please provide us with as much detail as possible, including: (i) the nature of the right infringed or violated (including the registration numbers of any registered trademarks or patents allegedly infringed, if applicable), (ii) all facts which lead you to believe that a right has been violated or infringed, (iii) the precise location where the offending Forum Information is located, (iv) any grounds to believe that the person who posted the Forum Information was not authorized to do so or did not have a valid defense (including fair use), and (v) if known, the identity of the person or persons who posted the infringing or offending Forum Information. By lodging a complaint, you agree that the substance of your complaint shall be deemed to constitute a representation made under penalty of perjury. In addition, you agree, at your own expense, to defend and indemnify us and hold us harmless against all claims which may be asserted against us, and all losses incurred, as a result of your complaint and/or our response to it. We expect users to take responsibility for their own actions and cannot assume liability for any acts of third parties which take place at the Site. By taking advantage of the procedures set forth in this paragraph, you waive any and all claims or remedies which you might otherwise be able to assert against us under any theory of law (including but not limited to intellectual property laws) that arise out of or relate in any way to the Forum Information or our response, or failure to respond to a complaint. You agree that we have the right (but not the obligation) to investigate any complaint received. By reserving this right, we do not undertake any responsibility in fact to investigate complaints or to remove, disable or restrict access to or the availability of Forum Information. We support free speech on the Internet and therefore will not act on complaints that we believe, in our judgment, to be deficient. If you believe that Forum Information remains on the Site that violates your rights, your sole remedy shall be against the person responsible for posting or storing it, not against us. In addition to the restrictions on disclosure of Registration Information as set forth in RYW's Privacy Statement, RYW will not edit, delete or disclose the contents of your personally identifiable information submitted in connection with your Forum Information or your use of the Site unless: (1) you authorize RYW to do so; (2) you yourself disclose your identity or other personal information about yourself in a Site Forum or as part of Forum Information posted to an area of the Site accessible to other Users; or (3) if RYW is required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform with applicable laws or comply with legal process served on RYW; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of RYW or another user; or (c) enforce these Terms of Use. The foregoing notwithstanding, in the event you submit personally identifiable information as part of your use of a Site Forum, including without limitation, your email address, you understand and agree that all such personally identifiable information so submitted may be disclosed within the Site Forums to other users. Personally identifiable information submitted by you as part of your use of a Site Forum, is explicitly excluded from the RYW Privacy Statement.

You also warrant that the holder of any Rights in such content has completely and effectively waived all such Rights and validly and irrevocably granted to you the right to grant the license stated above.
