12. REMOVAL OF LINKS
The FunToNetwork Network offers access to numerous third party web pages and content available over the Internet. In overwhelming majority instances, including, but not limited to, sites displayed as search results or contained within a directory of links, FunToNetwork has no control whatsoever over the content of such sites. In other instances, including, but not limited to, web pages hosted on the FunToNetwork Network or provided to the FunToNetwork Network by third parties, FunToNetwork may set guidelines for what may appear on such web pages and may engage in certain screening, but generally exercises no control over the content of such web pages and is unable to police all such content. Third party content accessible through the FunToNetwork Network from such sources is developed by people over whom the FunToNetwork Network exercises no control. The search results that appear from the catalogs indexed by the FunToNetwork Network’s spiders or web robots are automated, and the FunToNetwork Network cannot and does not screen the sites before including them in the catalogs from which such automated search results are gathered. Similarly, web pages hosted by the FunToNetwork Network are posted by third parties, and, with the exception of certain automated screening functions, FunToNetwork cannot and does not screen such web pages before they are made accessible to other users of the FunToNetwork Network. Accordingly, neither the FunToNetwork Network nor its licensors assume any responsibility for the content of any site included in any search results or otherwise linked to the FunToNetwork Network web sites or in any web page hosted for a third party within the FunToNetwork Network. In instances where the FunToNetwork Network does review the sites that are displayed in directories, indices, and/or references, or where the FunToNetwork Network makes available directories, indices, and/or references of sites compiled by third parties, the content located at such sites was developed third parties, and review of such sites by FunToNetwork, if any, is narrowly limited to that which is necessary for compiling the particular set of links.
Many features of the FunToNetwork Network store information on behalf of users. Examples include, but are not limited to, email messages, chat, web pages, message boards, calendar functions, and postings on FunToNetwork Auctions. FunToNetwork reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to limit the amount of storage space available per user or to delete materials stored for an excessive period while the user’s account has been inactive.
Pictures, movies, streams, and sounds (the “Multimedia Content”) located through the FunToNetwork Multimedia Search and other FunToNetwork Network search services are protected by copyright and/or other intellectual property laws. FunToNetwork does not have the right to authorize you to reproduce, distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, or create derivative works from any files containing such Multimedia Content. Where search results link to sites outside the FunToNetwork Network, all of the Multimedia Content contained on such sites is owned and served by entities other than the FunToNetwork. The FunToNetwork Network provides you with the URL or address of the Multimedia Content; this information may be used to determine the server of the Multimedia Content. If you intend to make use of any Multimedia Content accessed through our site for commercial or noncommercial purposes, we strongly suggest that you contact the server of the Multimedia Content for permission to use the Multimedia Content.

When using chat rooms, message boards, clubs, and BBS forums concerning investments and securities investors should be wary and cautions of any information they find. Information obtained through these sources, or through any other aspect of the Products and Services, cannot be a substitute for independent research into particular companies, industries, and investments. Investment or trading decisions should not be based on information obtained through chat rooms, message boards, or BBS discussions. The people who make such information available in such forums may not be who they claim to be or may not be affiliated with whom they claim to be.
