The COMMUNITY area allows registered users to share suggestions, ideas, comments, questions, or other information related to Bell products and services that may be of interest to other users. Bell shall not have any liability or responsibility for any acts, omissions, or conduct of any user of the COMMUNITY area or other third party. More specifically, Bell takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any content posted by you or any third party, and you agree that your reliance upon any information posted or shared by other users in the COMMUNITY will be at your sole risk. You may post relevant content, so long as the content is not illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights (including publicity rights), or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable, and does not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of “spam” or unsolicited commercial electronic messages. You may not use a false e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of the content.
If you do post content or share material, and unless Bell indicates otherwise, you grant Bell a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, perform, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display such content throughout the world in any media. You grant Bell the right to use the name that you used in connection with such content if Bell chooses. You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to the content that you post; that the content is accurate; that use of the content you supply does not violate this policy and will not cause injury to any person or entity; and that you will indemnify Bell for all claims resulting from content you supply. Bell has the right but not the obligation to monitor and edit or remove any activity or content. Again, Bell takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any content posted by you.
