The Network may contain discussion boards, user-generated pages such as blogs, messaging services, user generated video, images and other interactive features which allow you and other users to post information, provide feedback to the Network, and interact in real-time. To the extent that portions of this Network provide users an opportunity to post and/or exchange information, ideas, opinions, photographs, images, video, creative works, or any other material (the "Postings"), please be advised that Postings do not necessarily reflect the views of VMN. In no event shall VMN assume or have any responsibility or liability for any Postings or for any claims, damages, or losses resulting from their use and/or appearance on or transmission via this Network. Responsibility for Postings lies with each user, and you alone are responsible for the content of your messages and the consequences of any such messages. Please take a moment to reflect on your Posting before hitting the "post" button (or uploading video or other content) as you cannot in every case edit or delete a Posting. Please do not post in haste and consider your words and tone carefully, and then respond in a respectful and serious manner.
We do not claim ownership of any Postings that you may post or submit. However, by submitting a Posting, you hereby authorize VMN, and grant VMN, our affiliates and other users the non-exclusive right to use, display, reproduce, modify and distribute, such Postings in whole or in part, throughout the universe in perpetuity in any and all media, now known or hereafter devised, alone, or together or as part of other material of any kind or nature. Without limiting the foregoing, VMN will have the right to use, copy, display, perform, distribute, adapt, modify and re-format the Postings in any manner that VMN may determine. You agree that VMN and our affiliates may identify you as the author of any of your Postings by name, email address or screen name as VMN sees appropriate, in its sole discretion. You acknowledge that Postings may be indexed by online search engines such as Yahoo! and Google.
By submitting a Posting, you represent and warrant to VMN that you have all necessary rights in and to all Postings you provide and all information they contain and that such Postings shall not infringe any proprietary or other rights of third parties or contain any libelous, tortious, or otherwise unlawful information. If your Posting incorporates the name, voice, likeness and/or image of any individual and/or any third party-owned content including without limitation text, graphics, software, music, sound, photographs, videos, messages, posts, data, information or other material, you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant VMN, our affiliates and other users permission to use such name, voice, likeness and/or image of such individual and/or such third party-owned content appearing in the Posting in all media throughout the world in perpetuity. By submitting a Posting, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold VMN, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates and/or related entities and parties harmless from and against any breach or alleged breach of any of your representations, warranties or undertakings hereunder. In order to encourage safe dialogue about sensitive subjects, ParentsConnect members have the option of posting anonymously, meaning their username will not appear on the Posting. Keep in mind, however, that while users may have the option to submit Postings that are anonymous vis-a-vis other users of the Network, ParentsConnect may maintain internal records that track each Posting to the unique user name under which the Posting originated.
In cases where you feel threatened or believe someone else is in danger, you should contact your local law enforcement agency immediately. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately.
VMN may (but is under no obligation to) pre-screen Postings and sweep its discussion boards and other areas of the Network periodically in its sole discretion. That said, VMN is most often a passive conduit of the information that you and other users submit.
