Certain areas of this Web Site enable you to access online forums where you can post messages and read messages posted by other users (the "Forums"). Acoustic Learning does not endorse, and specifically disclaims any responsibility or liability for, any content posted on the Forums. The Forums are a free service provided to users of the Web Site. By posting a message in the Forums, you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions. If you do not want to be bound by these terms, then do not use the Forums.

You agree to be fully responsible for your own postings and agree to access and use the Forums at your own risk on an as-is basis. While Acoustic Learning has no obligation to monitor the Forums, it may, from time to time, monitor the Forums to determine whether postings comply with these Terms of Use, to guide the discussion on the Forums, or for other reasons. Acoustic Learning cannot and does not guarantee that it will post or continue to post every message or other content you or other users submit to the Forum. Also, Acoustic Learning reserves the right to edit or abridge postings for any reason and to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, in Acoustic Learning's sole discretion.

You must abide by the following rules in connection with your use of the Forums:

· You agree to post only messages that relate to the subject matter of the Forum.
· You agree not to defame, abuse, harass, stalk, threaten or otherwise violate the legal rights of others.
· You agree not to impersonate any person or entity, including, for example, a Acoustic Learning employee or officer, a forum leader, or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity.
· You agree not to post messages that contain material that is inappropriate, profane, defamatory, infringing, obscene, or indecent. This includes any content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights of any party. You agree to give attribution to others when you quote or paraphrase materials owned by others.
· You agree not to upload files, or cause users to upload files, that contain viruses, corrupted files, or any other similar software or programs that may adversely affect the operation of another's computer.
· You agree not to advertise or promote any goods or services in the Forums. This includes, among other things, "junk mail", "spam", "chain letters", and "pyramid schemes."
· You agree not to conduct contests or distribute chain letters through the Forums.
· You agree not to violate any applicable local, state, national or international law in connection with your use of the Forums. This includes, among other things, any securities law or regulation.

By posting a message, uploading a file, or engaging in any other form of communication through a Forum, you are granting Acoustic Learning a perpetual, royalty-free and irrevocable right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, distribute, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, sublicense, create derivative works from, transfer, and sell any such messages, files or communications.

You agree to indemnify and hold Acoustic Learning and its affiliates and their respective, officers, directors and employees harmless from any claims, damages, losses or costs (including reasonable attorney's fees) that arise out of any of your postings and any material contained therein.

What to do if you believe a posting violates these Terms of Use: If you believe that a posting in a Forum violates these Terms of Use, we encourage you to contact Acoustic Learning by sending an email using eartraining@aruffo.com that identifies the applicable posting and the screen identity of the person who made the posting. Acoustic Learning cannot guarantee that any action will be taken as a result of your email.
