Acceptable Use Policy for Forums and Blogs – Our Site contains blogs and forums (collectively, “Forums”) that permit users to post comments. Please remember that the open and real-time nature of the comments posted to these Forums makes it is impossible for Tuio to confirm the validity of any content posted. As such, we are not responsible for any messages posted or the consequences of following any advice offered within Forum posts. The views expressed in such posts belong solely to their respective authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of Tuio. If you find any posts in these Forums to be offensive or objectionable, please contact us via email to the address offered as a contact for the relevant Forum. If we determine that removal of a post or posts is necessary, we will make reasonable efforts to do so in a timely manner.

• By posting messages, uploading files, inputting data, or engaging in any other form of communication through the Forums (collectively, the “content”), you grant Tuio, its successors and assignees, a royalty-free, perpetual, non-exclusive, unrestricted, worldwide license to use, adapt, transmit, publicly perform or display any such content on the site to which it was contributed (or successor site). In plain English, you allow us to continue to display your contributions to the Site.
• If you contribute any graphic images or photographs, you accept all liability for any issues that may arise from such content. Please do not submit any images or photographs for which you do not have a current model or property release unless you are otherwise authorized to post such material.

• You will not impersonate any person or entity, forge headers or otherwise manipulate identifiers in order to disguise the origin of any posting, nor collect or store personal data about other users.
