If these terms and conditions are considered an offer by APAN, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms.
If you create an account on the Website, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the account.

If you comment on a content, post material to the Website, post links on the Website, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available by means of the Website (any such material, “Content”), You are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content. That is the case regardless of whether the Content in question constitutes text, graphics, an audio file, or computer software. By making Content available, you represent and warrant that:
the downloading, copying and use of the Content will not infringe the proprietary rights, including but not limited to the copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret rights, of any third party;
if your employer has rights to intellectual property you create, you have either (i) received permission from your employer to post or make available the Content, including but not limited to any software, or (ii) secured from your employer a waiver as to all rights in or to the Content;
you have fully complied with any third-party licenses relating to the Content, and have done all things necessary to successfully pass through to end users any required terms;
the Content does not contain or install any viruses, worms, malware, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content;
the Content is not spam, is not machine- or randomly-generated, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);
the Content is not pornographic, does not contain threats or incite violence, and does not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party;
the Content is not getting advertised via unwanted electronic messages such as spam links on newsgroups, email lists, other blogs and web sites, and similar unsolicited promotional methods;
your account is not named in a manner that misleads your readers into thinking that you are another person or organization. For example, your account name is not the name of a person other than yourself or organization you represent; and
you have, in the case of Content that includes computer code, accurately categorized and/or described the type, nature, uses and effects of the materials, whether requested to do so by APAN or otherwise.
By submitting Content to APAN for inclusion on the Website, you grant APAN a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting your Content. If you delete Content, APAN will use reasonable efforts to remove it from the Website, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable.
Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, APAN has the right (though not the obligation) to, in APAN’s sole discretion (i) refuse or remove any content that, in APAN’s reasonable opinion, violates any APAN policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the Website to any individual or entity for any reason, in APAN’s sole discretion.
APAN makes every attempt to review the material posted to the Website, but it may not be possible to do so and cannot therefore be responsible for that material’s content, use or effects. By operating the Website, APAN does not represent or imply that it endorses the material there posted, or that it believes such material to be accurate, useful or non-harmful. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. The Website may contain content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, and other errors. The Website may also contain material that violates the privacy or publicity rights, or infringes the intellectual property and other proprietary rights, of third parties, or the downloading, copying or use of which is subject to additional terms and conditions, stated or unstated. APAN disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from the use by visitors of the Website, or from any downloading by those visitors of content there posted.
We have not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material made available through the websites and webpages to which APAN links, and that link to APAN. APAN does not have any control over those non-APAN websites and webpages, and is not responsible for their contents or their use. By linking to a non-APAN website or webpage, APAN does not represent or imply that it endorses such website or webpage. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. APAN disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from your use of non-APAN websites and webpages.
As APAN asks others to respect its intellectual property rights, it respects the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that material located on or linked to by APAN violates your copyright, you are encouraged to notify APAN in accordance with APAN’s Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) Policy. APAN will respond to all such notices, including as required or appropriate by removing the infringing material or disabling all links to the infringing material. APAN will terminate a visitor’s access to and use of the Website if, under appropriate circumstances, the visitor is determined to be a repeat infringer of the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of APAN or others.
This Agreement does not transfer from APAN to you any APAN or third party intellectual property, and all right, title and interest in and to such property will remain (as between the parties) solely with APAN.
