Social Media Warning (Divulgence of Personal & Private Information)
Social media has provided a platform for internet users to disclose much personal information about themselves, in a way that seems innocuous, if not proper and expected. However, more than a few people have already lived to regret personal information that was shared either by them or others. This has long been true of simple email. It is exponentially true of social websites and applications for social media on any other website, including this one. You are cautioned against carelessly disclosing information.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless us and our members, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers, attorneys, insurers and any third party information providers to our website from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees, resulting from any use of our website or violation of these Terms and Conditions (including negligent or wrongful conduct) by you or any other person accessing our website or services. The protections contained in this paragraph are for the benefit of us and our owners, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers, attorneys, insurers and any third party information providers to the Service.

We reserve the right to investigate complaints or reported violations of these Terms and Conditions and to take any action we deem appropriate, including but not limited to reporting any suspected unlawful activity to law enforcement officials, regulators, or other third parties and disclosing any data necessary or appropriate to such persons or entities relating to your profile, email addresses, usage history, IP addresses and traffic data.
These Terms and Conditions, in whole or in part, may be terminated without notice at any time for any reason.
