5. User Responsibility and User-Posted Content
5.1 You are solely responsible for your use of the Site and Services. Because FRoSP merely serves as a repository of information, user-posted content does not represent the advice, views, opinions or beliefs of FRoSP, and FRoSP makes no claim of accuracy of any user-posted material. FRoSP allows for the posting of user comments, and may include links to third-party websites. These comments, and any linked websites' content, business practices and privacy policies are not under our control, and we are not responsible for the content of any user comments, linked website or any link contained in a linked website. The inclusion of user comments and/or links on the Site or Services does not imply any endorsement by or any affiliation with FRoSP. In accessing the Site and Services, reading user comments, answering to user comments, or following links to third-party websites you may be exposed to content that you consider offensive or inappropriate. You agree that your only recourse is to stop using the Site and Services.
5.2 By posting content, you are granting permission to us and others to access and use it in connection with the Services, the Site and otherwise in connection with our business. FRoSP does not provide legal services, and therefore, providing you with the ability to attach a license agreement to your compilation of links does not create an attorney-client relationship. The license agreements and all related information are provided on an "as is" basis. FroSP is explicitly not responsible for the manner or circumstances by which third parties access or use public content and is under no obligation to disable or otherwise restrict this access.
By posting any Content on the Services, you hereby grant to us an unrestricted, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, fully-paid and royalty-free, license (with the right to sublicense through unlimited levels of sublicensees) to use, copy, perform, display, create derivative works of, and distribute such Content in any and all media or distribution method (now known or later developed) throughout the world. Additionally, by posting any Content on the Services and making your Content available to others ("Third Parties") via RSS distribution, you hereby grant to all Third Parties an unrestricted, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, fully-paid and royalty-free, license (with the right to sublicense through unlimited levels of sublicensees) to copy, display, and distribute such Content in any and all media (now known or later developed) throughout the world. No compensation will be paid with respect to the Content that you submit, upload, post, transmit or otherwise make available through the Services. You should only upload Content to the Services that you are comfortable sharing with others under the terms and conditions set forth herein. Other users of the Service will be able to view any Content you post to the Services.
5.3 The Extension and Website are made available to you for your personal, non-commercial use only (at home or at work). You may not modify, reproduce, distribute, publish, license, create derivative works from or sell any information or software associated with the Website, without first obtaining written permission from FroSP. Furthermore, you may not use the Extension or Website in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair the Services (e.g., you may not use the Extension or Website in an automated manner), nor may you use Extension or Website in any manner that could interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of the Services. You may not use any third party extension, software, or scripts to access the Website or the Websites underlying technology or software.
