6. User Generated Content
6.1 The Services may enable you to submit comments or other user generated content to Yamgo for hosting, display, and distribution to other users of the Services (individually and collectively "UGC"). By submitting UGC, you confirm that you hold all rights to do so and you grant to Yamgo and any affiliates, representatives, and assigns an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, fully-paid, world-wide, royalty-free Licence, with, among other rights, the right to grant sublicences through multiple tiers of sublicencees, to publicly display, publicly perform, distribute, store, transcode, syndicate, broadcast, reproduce, edit, modify, create derivative works, and otherwise use and reuse your UGC (or any portions or derivative works thereof) in any manner, in any medium, and for any purpose.
6.2 Yamgo reserves the right to display advertisements in connection with your UGC and to use your UGC for advertising and promotional purposes. Any UGC may be removed at any time or be refused by Yamgo in its sole discretion. Yamgo is not responsible for any loss, theft or damage of any kind to any UGC, whether or not published or displayed, and Yamgo does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any UGC.
6.3 Regarding UGC, you shall not: (i) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage the Services or any third party; (ii) publish material that is unlawful, obscene, pornographic, defamatory, libelous, hateful, threatening, harassing, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages anything that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, violate the rights, harm, or threaten the safety of any person or is otherwise inappropriate; (iii) impersonate another person; or (iv) post advertisements or solicitations for yourself or for any third parties.
6.4 Yamgo acts as a passive conduit for its users, and Yamgo has no obligation to screen or monitor communications or information, and has no legal obligation to, and generally does not, control the information provided by other users.. Accordingly, you must use caution and common sense when using the Services. If notified by a user of communications which allegedly do not conform to these Terms and Conditions, Yamgo may investigate the allegation and determine in good faith and at its sole discretion whether to remove or request the removal of the communication.
6.5 By its very nature, other people's information may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and in some cases may be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. Yamgo does not endorse, represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of UGC and has no liability or responsibility for any UGC or your reliance on UGC. Any such reliance shall be at your own risk.
6.6 Yamgo is not involved in the actual transaction between visitors. As a result, Yamgo has no control over the quality and safety or legality of postings or information uploaded to the Services. In addition, there are risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, in dealing with strangers, underage persons, or people acting under false pretenses. You assume all risks associated with dealing with other users with whom you come in contact through the Services, and Yamgo has no responsibility or liability for any transactions, online or offline, between you and any third party.
6.7 Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, Yamgo cannot and does not confirm that each user is who they claim to be. We are not and cannot be involved in user-to-user dealings or control the behavior of participants on the Services; consequently in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release Yamgo (and its agents, representatives, partners, directors, officers and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential, direct and indirect) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident in the United States, you waive California Civil Code d1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
6.8 All information or advice provided as part of the Services are intended to be general in nature and you should not rely on it in connection with the making of any decision and may not be applicable to your personal situation. Yamgo is not liable for any action you may take as a result of relying on such information or advice or for any loss or damage suffered by you as a result of you taking this action.
7. Social Networking
