4. USER SUBMITTED CONTENT
You are solely responsible for all information that you post, submit, share or otherwise publish on the Site ("Submissions").

You should ensure that Your Information is not false, fraudulent, inaccurate or misleading, and does not infringe any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy.
You hereby also grant Equ.aL the non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sub licensable (through multiple tiers) right to use, reproduce, publish, distribute, modify and otherwise exploit such submission for any purpose, and to exercise the copyright and publicity rights you have in Your Information, in any media now known or not currently known, with respect to Your Information. This means that anything posted, submitted, shared or otherwise published by you to the Site shall be owned by Equ.aL and may be used by Equ.aL for any purpose, now or in the future, without any payment to, or further authorization by, you.
Equ.aL does not represent or endorse the accuracy of reliability of information posted to the Site by users. In addition, Equ.aL does not and cannot review all information posted to the Site by users and is not responsible for such information. Equ.aL expressly disclaims any and all liability related to Submissions, and you acknowledge and agree that any reliance upon such Submissions shall be at your sole option, liability and risk. Equ.aL in its sole discretion reserves the right to refuse to post and the right to remove any information or Submission from the Site, in whole or in part, for any reason. You shall also not assume a false identity or the identity of some other member when using the Site or transmit libellous, harassing, vulgar or otherwise objectionable messages through the Site; or post materials subject to copyright or other intellectual property rights claimed by any third party; or use the Site for any unlawful or illegal activities (including spamming the other users by sending unsolicited e-mails).

6. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES & LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
The site, including all content therein, is provided "as is" and "as available," without any warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, without limitation, implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.
Specifically, but without limitation, Equ.aL does not represent or warrant the use, security, accuracy, reliability, non-infringement, satisfactory quality or fitness for any particular purpose and that the Sites will be uninterrupted and free of any viruses or bugs and that you shall remain solely responsible for your use of all site content and acknowledge that any reliance upon the site content shall be entirely at your sole option and risk.
Equ.aL and its third-party content providers make no warranties, express or implied, as to the ownership, accuracy, or adequacy of the site content. Equ.aL shall have no liability or responsibility for any information published on linked websites, contained in any user submissions published on the site, or provided by third parties.
You agree that Equ.aL is not liable for indirect, special, exemplary, incidental, consequential or punitive damages (including loss of use, data or profits or business interruption), however caused and under any theory of liability, whether arising in any way in connection with these Terms and whether in contract, strict liability or tort (including negligence or otherwise) even if Equ.aL has been advised of the possibility of such damage. You also agree that Equ.aL is not liable for any other claim, demand or damages whatsoever resulting from or arising out of or in connection with your use of the services.
The disclaimers and limitations herein do not purport to limit liability or alter any right that cannot be excluded under applicable Singapore law. Equ.aL’s maximum liability for damages arising from your use of the services is limited to five hundred Singapore dollars (S$500). You acknowledge and agree that the above limitations of liability together with the other provisions in these Terms that limit liability are essential terms and that Equ.aL would not grant you the rights set forth in these Terms but for your agreement to the above limitations of liability.
You agree to defend and hold Equ.aL, affiliates and related companies from and against all claims, losses, damages, costs and expenses, including legal fees on an indemnity basis, arising out of your use of the Site and/or Services or any breach of this Agreement. In addition, Equ.aL may use whatever information that is available about you to stop any such breach or any unlawful or inappropriate use of the Site and/or Services, including informing any third party Equ.aL deems appropriate of such breach or use and/or disclosing your personal information to such third party.
8. HYPERLINKING TO THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES & PROVIDERS
The Services may contain links to third-party websites and services, including social media (collectively, “Linked Services”) and some of the content appearing to be on this Site is in fact supplied, supported, or provided indirectly by third parties.
Linked Services are not under the control of Equ.aL and Equ.aL is not responsible for Linked Services or for any information on or available from or through Linked Services. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you. When you access a non-Equ.aL web site, please understand that it is independent from Equ.aL, and that Equ.aL has no control over the content on that web site, even if Equ.aL provides information or services to the owner of that web site. You will need to make your own independent judgment regarding your interaction with these third-party sites or services. Our inclusion of advertisements for, or links to, a third-party site or service does not constitute an endorsement of such third-party site or service. In fact, Equ.aL disclaims any and all liability and responsibility for such content. It is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever you select for your use is free of such items as viruses, worms, trojan horses and other items of a destructive nature.
9. AGREEMENT & TERMINATION
These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and Equ.aL with respect to the subject matter of these Terms and Conditions and supersedes and replaces all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding that subject matter. Any waiver of any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall be effective only if in writing and signed by Equ.aL. Any failure to enforce any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of a future breach of that or any other provision of these Terms and Conditions.
Equ.aL may terminate the Services or modify your access to the Services, with or without notice to you, at any time for any reason. For example, Equ.aL may prohibit your use of the Services if we believe that you are a minor. Termination will not limit any of Equ.aL’s other rights or remedies. Sections 2, 3, 6, 7 and 10, together with any other provision that must survive in order to give proper effect to the intent and purpose of these Terms, shall survive termination.
10. GOVERNING LAW; JURISDICTION
All matters related to the Services are governed by the laws of the Republic of Singapore without reference to the principles of conflicts of laws thereof.
Any dispute arising out of the use of the Sites or any Services shall be referred to arbitration in Singapore in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre for the time being in force, which rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into these terms and conditions.
