Responsibility for content
As in many other sites on the Internet, users may publish in some of the sections their opinions and comments on some of the Content, send communications, suggestions, ideas, questions or other information, provided that the content of the same is not illegal, obscene, abusive, threatening, defamatory, invades the privacy of third parties, infringes intellectual property rights, is offensive or otherwise objectionable to third parties, or contains computer viruses, political propaganda, advertising content, chain letters, mass mailings or any other type of ‘spam’.
