Comments and other Postings on the Sites

One or more of the Sites may provide an opportunity for users to post their comments and other materials, including videos and images (together “User Materials”), and to exchange ideas. Users acknowledge that User Materials will be posted on the World Wide Web and, consequently, may be freely copied and distributed by others without their permission. Users acknowledge further that they abandon any proprietary rights in all User Materials they post to the Sites and that CWF has the right in perpetuity to quote from or otherwise use User Materials in all media now known and hereafter created or discovered. By posting User Materials on the Sites users agree they:

  • will comply with all CWF requirements and procedures for its Sites and all applicable laws and regulations; and
  • will NOT post abusive or offensive language or User Materials that in whole or in part give rise to civil or criminal liability; and
  • will NOT post any User Material that is commercial in nature or infringes upon any third party rights, including privacy, publicity, trade secret, copyright, trademark, or patent; and
  • will obtain all necessary permissions from third party owners of any User Material before posting or distributing it on any of the Sites.

Users acknowledge that CWF does not endorse any User Materials, including without limitation, opinions or recommendations posted by users and that it makes no representation or warranty that the use of the User Materials will not infringe the rights of any third party. CWF assumes no responsibility or liability arising from any use of the User Materials or for any error, omission, defamation, obscenity, pornography or other illegal material contained in User Materials.

CWF shall have the right, but not the obligation, to inspect, monitor, review, remove or refuse any User Materials for any reason whatsoever, but will not remove User Materials solely based upon a user's request. Teachers who sponsor a user posting to CWF’s sites shall assure that their students comply with these Terms and Conditions of Use.

CWF will terminate access and accounts of those who do not comply with these Terms and Conditions of Use as determined in CWF’s sole discretion. CWF may discontinue all or any portion of the Sites at any time in its sole discretion.
