Right to Monitor and Editorial Control
Cordium reserves the right, but does not have an obligation, to monitor and/or review all Submitted Materials posted to the Web Site or through the Web Site’s services by users, and Cordium is not responsible for any such materials posted by users. However, Cordium reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation or government request, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, that, in Cordium’s sole discretion, are objectionable or in violation of these Terms, Cordium’s policies or applicable law.

Private or Sensitive Information on Public Forums
It is important to remember that comments submitted to a forum may be recorded and stored in multiple places, both on the Web Site and elsewhere on the Internet, that are likely to be accessible for a long time. You have no control over who will read them eventually. It is therefore important to be careful and selective about the personal information that you disclose about yourself and others, and in particular, you should not disclose sensitive, embarrassing, proprietary or confidential information in your comments to our public forums.

You agree not to download or use images hosted on this Web Site on another web site, for any purpose, including posting such images on another site. You agree not to link from any other web site to this Web Site in any manner such that the Web Site, or any page of the Web Site, is “framed,” surrounded or obfuscated by any third party content, materials or branding. We reserve all of our rights under law to insist that any link to the Web Site be discontinued, and to revoke your right to link to the Web Site from any other web site at any time upon written notice to you.

You acknowledge and agree that we have no responsibility for the information, data, content, products, services, advertising, code or other materials that may or may not be provided by or through Linked Sites, even if they are owned or run by affiliates or strategic partners of ours.
