You must think before you post User Contributions. All areas of the Websites in which User Contributions are posted should be considered public and not confidential, even if such areas are limited to AAPM&R members. Once you post a User Contribution, you should assume everyone in the world can see it and will have access to it, and you will be unable to delete or revise it. In addition, We have no control over what another user of the Websites may do with your User Contributions. Accordingly, you should not post anything you wish to keep confidential or are required by law or otherwise to keep confidential. Any User Contribution you post to the Websites will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary.
By providing any User Contribution on the Websites, you grant Us and Our affiliates and service providers, and each of their and Our respective licensees, successors and assigns the unconditional, worldwide, fully transferable, fully sub-licensable and assignable, perpetual, non-terminable, non-exclusive, royalty-free right and license (but not the obligation) to reproduce, prepare derivative works from, modify, incorporate into other works, distribute, perform publicly, display publicly, transmit, broadcast, sell, and otherwise use and exploit your User Contributions in all media now known or hereafter created.
You represent and warrant that:
- You own or control all rights in and to your User Contributions and have the right to grant the license granted above to Us and Our affiliates and service providers, and each of their and Our respective licensees, successors and assigns.
You understand and acknowledge that you are responsible for any User Contributions you submit or contribute, and you, not AAPM&R, have full responsibility for such content, including its legality, reliability, accuracy, and appropriateness.
We are not responsible, or liable to any third party, for the content or accuracy of any User Contributions posted by you or any other user of the Websites.
8. MONITORING AND ENFORCEMENT; TERMINATION
We have the right to:

Without limiting the foregoing, We have the right to fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing Us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any materials on or through the Websites.
However, We cannot review material before it is posted on the Websites, and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted. Accordingly, We assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications or content provided by any user or third party. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this section.
9. CONTENT STANDARDS
These content standards apply to any and all User Contributions and use of Interactive Services. User Contributions must, in their entirety, comply with all applicable federal, state, local and international laws and regulations. Without limiting the foregoing, User Contributions must not:
