  1. Responsibility of Contributors. Those who post material to, provide links to material from, or otherwise make material available by means of the Websites (Contributor or Contributors) are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that material. By acting as a Contributor, you represent and warrant that:
    • the downloading, copying and use of the materials you make available will not infringe the proprietary rights, including but not limited to intellectual property rights, of any third party;
    • you have fully complied with any third-party licenses relating to such materials, and have done all things necessary to successfully pass through to end users any required terms;
    • the materials you make available do not contain any viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content;
    • the materials you make available are not obscene or libelous, and do not violate the right of privacy or publicity of any third party; and

    • on the day of the conclusion of this agreement you do not know of any circumstances which would create an impediment to the actual use of your intellectual property.

The IKS websites may contain content that is offensive, indecent or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes and other errors.
