  1. Responsibility of Forum Visitors
    UXMastery has not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, posted to the forums, and cannot therefore be responsible for that material’s content, use or effects. By operating the forums, UXMastery does not represent or imply that it endorses the material posted, or that it believes such material to be accurate, useful or non-harmful. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. The forums may contain content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, and other errors.
    The forums may also contain material that violates the privacy or publicity rights, or infringes the intellectual property and other proprietary rights, of third parties, or the downloading, copying or use of which is subject to additional terms and conditions, stated or unstated. UXMastery disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from the use by visitors of the forums, or from any downloading by those visitors of content there posted.

  2. Termination
    UXMastery may terminate your access to the forums at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. If you wish to terminate this Agreement or your UXMastery account, you may simply discontinue using the forums. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
