FICP is providing information and services on this site as a benefit and service in furtherance of the association’s non-profit and tax-exempt status. The association makes no representations about the suitability of this information and these services for any purpose. FICP does not exert editorial control over the materials that are posted by third parties onto the site or materials that are e-mailed by third parties to any other persons.

Limitation of Liability and Indemnity
The great danger for FICP is that we might be held accountable for the wrongful actions of our visitors. If one visitor libels another visitor, the injured visitor might blame us, even though the first visitor was really at fault. If a visitor uploads a program with a computer virus, and other visitors' computers are damaged, we might be blamed even though the virus was left on our board by a visitor. If a visitor transfers illegal credit card information to another visitor through private electronic mail, we might be blamed even though we did nothing more than unknowingly carry the message from one visitor to another.
We did not start this site to take the blame for others' actions, and we cannot afford to operate it if we must take that blame. Accordingly, all visitors must accept responsibility for their own acts, and to accept that an act by another visitor that damages them must not be blamed on us, but on the other visitor. Therefore, as a condition of participation in site, participants must agree as follows:
You agree that FICP will not be responsible to you for any indirect, consequential, special or punitive damages or losses you may incur in connection with visiting this site or any of the data or other materials transmitted through or residing on this site, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damage or loss. In addition, you agree to defend and indemnify FICP and hold FICP harmless from and against any and all claims, proceedings damages, injuries, liabilities losses, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys fees) relating to any acts or omissions by you or materials or information transmitted by you in connection with our forum leading wholly or partially to claims against FICP or this site by other callers or third parties.
Unless otherwise provided in the Terms and Conditions, any communication, material or feedback with regard to contents on this site transmitted by a user of this site via electronic mail or otherwise, including any data, questions, or comments regarding the content of any document or other information contained on the site, such information shall be deemed to be non-confidential and FICP shall have no obligation of any kind with respect to such information. Unless otherwise agreed, FICP does not claim ownership of the materials you provide to FICP or post, upload, input or submit to the site for review by the general public, or by the members of any public or private community ("Submission"). Unless stated otherwise for specific services, you will retain copyright ownership and all related rights for information you publish through the site.
