AGREEMENT BETWEEN USER AND THE COMPANY

If you enter into any other agreement with the Company, then these terms, conditions, and notices are in addition to the terms of such other agreement. Neither entering into this agreement, nor visiting this Site, nor any of these terms, guarantees that you are eligible to receive payment from the Company.
Your use of the Site constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions, and notices.

USE OF COMMUNICATION SERVICES
The Site is maintained primarily to enable eligible persons to submit claims to the Company to recover for bodily injury damages and no fault benefits to “qualified” victims of motor vehicle accidents caused by uninsured motorists. However, the Site may contain bulletin board services, chat areas, news groups, forums, communities, personal web pages, calendars, and/or other message or communication facilities designed to enable you to communicate with the public at large or within a group (collectively, "Communication Services"). You agree to use the Communication Services only to post, send and receive messages and material that are proper and related to the particular Communication Service. By way of example, and not as a limitation, you agree that when using a Communication Service, you will not:
- Defame, abuse, harass, stalk, threaten or otherwise violate the legal rights (such as rights of privacy and publicity) of others.
- Publish, post, upload, distribute or disseminate any inappropriate, profane, defamatory, infringing, obscene, indecent or unlawful topic, name, material or information.

- Advertise or offer to sell or buy any goods or services for any business purpose, unless such Communication Service specifically allows such messages.

The Company has no obligation to monitor the Communication Services. However, the Company reserves the right in its sole discretion to review materials posted to a Communication Service and to remove any materials at any time, for any reason, without notice to you. The Company reserves the right to terminate your access to any or all of the Communication Services at any time without notice for any reason whatsoever.
The Company reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, in the Company's sole discretion.
Always use caution when giving out any personally identifying information about yourself or your children in any Communication Service. The Company does not control or endorse the content, messages or information found in any Communication Service and, therefore, the Company specifically disclaims any liability with regard to the Communication Services and any actions resulting from your participation in any Communication Service. Managers and hosts are not authorized Company spokespersons, and their views do not necessarily reflect those of the Company.
