All such risks shall be borne by you.

You further acknowledge that T18F reserves the right to change these general practices at any time with or without notice.

Registered User Conduct

You understand that all information, data, text, photographs, graphics, messages or other materials ("Content") publicly posted is the sole responsibility of the person from which such content originated.

- upload, post, e-mail, transmit or otherwise make available any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail," "spam," "chain letters," "pyramid schemes," or any other form of solicitation. (Posting the same note more than once can be considered "spam" or "spamming");

- forge headers or otherwise manipulate identifiers in order to disguise the origin of any Content transmitted through the Service;
