We have created, or may create in the future, certain areas, such as message boards and chat rooms, within the Website where members can upload and share their thoughts, comments, product reviews, pictures, videos and the like with other members (collectively, “Forums”). These Forums may be available to registered members of the Website only. To help ensure that the text, graphics, software, music, sound, photographs, videos, messages, posts, data, information, or other materials posted by users (collectively, the "User Content") is beneficial for the greater community, we have established some basic rules for everyone to follow.
In addition, if a Forum is provided within the Website, it may allow users to post questions to be answered by experts engaged by us. Where applicable, these experts are paid by us for their time in responding to members’ questions, but the opinions they express are their own. We are providing access to the experts and their guidance in the Forum solely as an informational and educational service to members of the Website.
Our policy for this Website is to review User Content, as far as practical, either before or after such User Content is posted. Pre-moderation means that the User Content will not be posted to the Forum and cannot be accessed or viewed by other Website members until we have reviewed it and determined that the User Content is suitable for posting to the Forum. This process also means that User Content submitted for posting will not be posted in real time and may never be posted if we determine that it is unsuitable for the Website. Post-moderation means that User Content will be reviewed by us once it is already posted on the Website. Post-moderated User Content that Site Owner determines does not comply with these Terms or is otherwise unsuitable for the Website will be removed from the Website, without notice to the User.
User Content must be appropriate for the Forum. Without limiting the reasons for which User Content may be rejected by us, we may reject, edit or remove any User Content that does not comply with any Community Guidelines that we provide, which you must read prior to posting any User Content on the Website.
By submitting User Content for posting at a Forum, you also
- confirm that you are entitled to post or transmit User Content;
- agree that you are solely responsible for all User Content that you submit for posting; and
- grant to Site Owner and its affiliated entities an irrevocable, worldwide, nonexclusive, perpetual, fully sub-licensable, transferable, royalty-free right and license to use, your User Content in any way on the Website and on any other Website owned or operated by Site Owner or its affiliates (as well as on any social media sites associated with the Site Owner or its affiliates).
We are free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained in or derived from any User Content for any purpose whatsoever, including developing, manufacturing, and marketing products. Therefore, please do not submit or send to us any ideas, suggestion or materials that you wish to keep confidential or for which you expect to receive compensation.

If we make use of any of these rights, you understand and agree that you shall not receive any other consideration, payment, notification or credit, nor will you have any approval over how Site Owner uses them.
