8. User Support: Acceptable Use Policy

8.1. Reliability of Information on the Web

The fact that that no one party owns or controls the Internet accounts for much of its openness and value, but it also places a high premium on the judgment and responsibility of those who use the Internet, both in the information they acquire and in the information they disseminate to others. When Users obtain information through the Internet, they must keep in mind that foodindustrycompliance.com cannot monitor, verify, warrant or vouch for the accuracy and quality of the information that subscribers may acquire. For this reason, the subscriber must exercise his or her best judgment in relying on information obtained from the Internet, and also should be aware that some material posted to the Internet is sexually explicit or otherwise offensive. Because foodindustrycompliance.com cannot monitor or censor websites, and will not attempt to do so, foodindustrycompliance.com cannot accept any responsibility for injury to Users that results from inaccurate, unsuitable, offensive or illegal Internet communications.

Also, because the information they create is carried over Foodindustrycompliance.com's network and may reach a large number of people, including both subscribers and nonsubscribers of foodindustrycompliance.com, subscribers' postings to the Internet may affect other subscribers and may harm foodindustrycompliance.com's goodwill, business reputation, and operations.
