RN.com Terms of Use

RN.com (the "Company") currently provides users with access to a rich collection of resources, including various communications tools, forums and personalized content through its Web site (the "Service").

All information, data, text, software, photographs, graphics, messages or other materials (the "Content"), whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, are the sole responsibility of the person from which such Content originated. This means that you, and not the Company, are entirely responsible for all Content that you upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available via the Service. The Company does not control the Content posted via the Service and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. By using the Service, you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable. Under no circumstances will the Company be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any Content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available via the Service.

The Company does not pre-screen Content, and the Company and its designees shall have the right (but not the obligation) to refuse or move any Content that is available via the Service. Without limiting the foregoing, the Company and its designees shall have the right to remove or delete any Content that violates the 'Terms of use' or is otherwise objectionable. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Content. You understand that the use of the Service can be discontinued by the Company, without prior notice or consent, upon performance of any prohibited act described in these 'Terms of use.' The Company also reserves the right to limit the storage capacity of Service accounts, and to temporarily disable functions should that storage limit be exceeded.

The Company may preserve Content and may also disclose Content if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with a service request; (b) enforce the 'Terms of use'; (c) respond to legal claims and claims involving third-parties; or (d) protect the rights, property or personal safety of the Company, its users and the public.

The technical processing and transmission of the Service, including your Content, may involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.
