3.2. When you share your Content with other people, you understand that they may be able to, on a worldwide basis, use, save, record, reproduce, transmit, and display your Content without compensating you. If you do not want others to have that ability, do not use the Services to share your Content. You represent and warrant that for the duration of these Terms, you have (and will have) all the rights necessary for your Content that is uploaded, stored, or shared on or through the Services and that the collection, use, and retention of your Content will not violate any law or rights of others.

3.6 Content posted by another person or company on or through the Service belongs to the poster. Except as expressly permitted in these Terms of Service, you do not have the right to use, reproduce, create derivative works of, distribute, publicly perform or publicly display any Content that does not belong to you, other than viewing of the Content on or through the Service as we may make available.

You understand that you must evaluate and bear all risks associated with the use of any Content, including any reliance on the content, integrity, and accuracy of such Content.
3.8 We have the right, but not the obligation, to remove or block Content from the Service that we determine in our sole discretion to be in violation of these Terms of Service, to be unlawful, offensive, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene or otherwise objectionable, that violates any party’s intellectual property or that is detrimental to the quality or intended spirit of the Service.

FURTHER, WE AND OUR AFFILIATES DO NOT WARRANT THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE INFORMATION, TEXT, GRAPHICS, LINKS OR OTHER INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE SERVICE. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE AVAILABLE AT ANY TIME OR FROM ANY PARTICULAR LOCATION, WILL BE SECURE OR ERROR-FREE, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE SERVICE IS FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER POTENTIALLY HARMFUL COMPONENTS. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED FROM US OR THE SERVICE SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS OF SERVICE.
8.4 NEITHER WE NOR OUR AFFILIATES WILL BE LIABLE, UNDER ANY THEORY OF LAW, FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF INFORMATION OR DATA, LOSS OF PROFITS, AND/OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION.

The arbitration will be held in San Francisco, California. The failure of us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms of Service shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and be enforceable.
