Terms Of Use

Wow! You genuinely came to this page. Our lawyers made us include it and made us utilize a precious link on our home page to get you here. In the beginning, we thought the lawyers were a genuine pain. But then we read the page. What a Netwakening! It is certainly important stuff. We took the legalese the lawyers wrote and translated it into readable English. So be a clever nethead and read the stuff on this page. It could prevent you from hearing from our lawyers, or even worse, from really nasty people, like prosecutors. 

Here is the offer: 

We run this site so that individuals like you (and people you like) can use it for personal entertainment, info, education, communication, and cyber-gratification. So proceed and shop around all you like. You can even download stuff from the site but only for non commercial, personal use. If you do, though, do not fool around with the copyright and different notices all around the stuff. They're there for a proficient reason. And do not even think about distributing, modifying, transmitting, reusing, re posting, or anything else uncool with any of the stuff, including the writing, images, audio, and video, for public or commercial purposes unless we give you written permission. And it's not likely we'll. 

If you visit our site, you are also legally obligated to read: stuck with the terms and conditions listed below and any other law or regulation that relates to the site, the web, the World Wide Web, or Los Angeles, CA. You should not access or browse the site if you have any trouble with that, because once you set about, there is no returning – you are bound by read: tied to the terms and conditions. 

So here is the scoop on our Top Ten Rules for Cyber-surfers who hang out on our site: 

1. For the sake of everybody, just assume that everything on the site is copyrighted unless we say it's not. So you can't use the stuff except how we say you can on this page or any place else on the site without our written permission. And like we said before, it is not likely we'll give you permission anyway. In point of fact, even though we wanted to, the lawyers add in all probability going to veto any deal anyway. So it is advisable you don't even ask. 

2. While we try to include accurate stuff on the site, we are not promising you it is accurate. In fact, we are not promising you anything except fun and entertainment. So if you use stuff on the site, you are utilizing it at your own risk. Do not call us if there is a problem because we assume no liability or responsibility for errors or omissions on the site. 

3. We and anybody else who helped us create, produce, or deliver the site are not answerable for any damages you suffer when you make use of it. Especially, the lawyers want you to know that our disclaimer includes Direct, Incidental, Consequential, Indirect, or Punitive Damages arising out of your entry to, or use of, the site. Without limiting the foregoing, everything on the site is supplied to you AS IS WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON INFRINGEMENT. 

Please be aware that some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you. Check your local laws for any restrictions or limitations regarding the exclusion of implied warranties. What a mouthful from the mouthpieces. We put all of that in quotes because we couldn't figure out any other way to say it that the lawyers would accept. But here is the reality - we are not responsible enough if you are browsing around and the site damages you or your personal computer or infects it with any nasty viruses. We sure hope that doesn't occur, but if it does, do not call us. 

4. If you don't want the world to know something, do not post in on the site in any bulletin board or anyplace else. That is because anything you disclose to us is ours. So we are able to do anything we want with the stuff you post. We can reproduce it, disclose it, transmit it, publish it, broadcast it, and post it elsewhere. We can also send it to your mom ( soon after we encounter her address). Not just that, we can even use any ideas, concepts, know how, or systems you post any way we want to, including, developing, manufacturing and marketing products or other stuff utilizing the details you post. 

5. Pictures of individuals or places shown on the site are either our property or the property of someone else we are applying with their permission. Despite what, it is definitely not your property. You or any of your net friends cannot use it unless we said you could on this page or somewhere else on the site. And guess what? we'll not say yes. So be mindful, Bunky, because unauthorized use may violate all kinds of nasty laws. Be smart, keep the stuff you download to yourself. 

6. There are also a great deal of trademarks, logos, and service marks on the site that either we own or we are applying with the permission of someone different. So do not think you have any sort of license or get admission to them, because you do not and we are not about to give you one. If you do not leave them alone and mess with our trademarks, logos and service marks on our site, we will probably go ballistic, so will the companies that own the other trademarks, logos and service marks. That means that we are likely to sue you or to ask a prosecutor to come after you for toying with our property or the property of others. 

7. You will likely notice we've linked our site to a great deal of others. While that is cool, it doesn't signify we have stared at all those sites, much less checked them out periodically to see what is going on. So don't blame us if some site you link to is bad or has stuff on it that offends you or your pets. Go ahead and link, but remember, you are performing it at your risk. 

8. That brings us to what you do on our own site. While we often times listen chat groups, or look at the posting in our discussion groups or on our bulletin planks, we take no responsibility and assume no liability for the content of those locations or for any mistakes, defamation, libel, slander, omissions, falsehoods, obscenity, pornography, or profanity you may encounter when you visit such places on our site. And do not be stupid by posting or transmitting any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, nasty, mean, or profane material or any material that law enforcement types may consider a criminal offense, get someone in a court room on a civil lawsuit, or so far as that is concerned violate any law – anywhere, anytime. While we certainly respect your privacy, we have no choice but to totally cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court which might ask us who could have posted nasty stuff on our site. 

9. Software that we employ on this Site is safeguarded by all kinds of patriotic U.S. laws. As a consequence of that, you cannot download or send the software to anyone in the vacation travel spots of Cuba, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Iran, Syria, or any other country where US has embargoed goods; or (get this) to anyone on the US Treasury Department list of Specially Designated Nationals, the U.S. Commerce Department Table of Deny Orders, or the FBI Most Wanted Internet Creeps List (just kidding on the last one). As if that weren't tough enough, if you live in or are a national of any of those lovely places, you aren't even going to be reading this page, so beat it! 

10. We are likewise allowed to change this page and anything else on the site any time we want to. That is as it is ours and we've the programmers who can do it. If we do change the page, then you are bound by read: stuck with those changes, too, when you visit our site. 

11. If of us wants to make something of it and wants to sue (a dirty word) then we've to follow these rules of engagement. ( sort of according to the Geneva Convention): 

This Agreement is controlled by the laws of the State of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws. 

To the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate, & and/or its affiliates intellectual property rights,, & and/or its affiliates may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of California, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts. 

Any other disputes will be resolved as follows: 

If a dispute arises under this agreement, we say yes to first try to resolve it with the assistance of a mutually given mediator in the accompanying location: California. Any costs and fees other than attorney fees related to the mediation will be shared equally by each of us. 

If it proves unthinkable to get to a mutually satisfactory solution through mediation, we say yes to submit the dispute to binding arbitration at the next location: California, under the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitration may well be entered in any court with jurisdiction to do so. 

If this all sounds kind of mean and undiplomatic, you ought to have seen what the lawyers gave to us in the first place. We'd to remind them that human torture and sacrifice was outlawed in the US. Boy, did they look disappointed!
