You are solely responsible for the content of your computer and any transmissions you make when using the Community.
Posts on any part of the Community may be edited, moved, deleted or removed at any time and for any reason or no reason and without notice by any BI employee or representative. BI is not obligated to provide you with any reason or explanation for any post being edited, moved, deleted or removed. There is no means of appeal for any post or membership that is edited, moved, deleted or removed from the Community. BI reserves the right to temporarily or permanently withdraw Community membership at any time and for any reason or no reason. BI is not obligated to provide you with any reason or explanation for any such membership withdrawal.
BI does not guarantee a response to any post on the Community. Specifically, support issues should be addressed via BI's official support provisions and protocols. You understand that posts on the Community are addressed to your peers and not BI and BI does not guarantee that any support issue will be addressed on the Community.
BI does not make any warranty or guarantee that any information posted on any part of the Community, whether or not such posting is made by an BI employee, is accurate, complete or in anyway reliable. BI does not give any guarantee or warranty that non-monetary or monetary idea packages/testings will deliver a certain amount of results or pass a certain threshold. Any support issues or questions about BI should be addressed via BI's official customer support provisions and protocols. BI disclaims any approval or liability related to any comments made on the Community by a user or third party. Community Forum posts represent the statements and opinions of the individual third-party users and are not necessarily the opinion of BI or its employees, partners and affiliates. BI does not approve or disapprove of any Community Forum post.
Limitation of Liability/Indemnity/Disclaimer of Warranties
THE COMMUNITY AND ALL INFORMATION, SERVICES AND DOCUMENTATION PROVIDED IN CONNECTION WITH ANY PART OF THE COMMUNITY ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE PRACTICE.
BI SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST PROFITS OR REVENUES, COSTS OF REPLACEMENT PRODUCTS OR SERVICE, OR LOSS OR DAMAGE TO INFORMATION OR DATA ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE ANY PART OF THE COMMUNITY OR THE RELIANCE ON ANY INFORMATION CONTAINED ON ANY PART OF THE COMMUNITY. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO NEGLIGENCE, SHALL BI BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM USE OF ANY PART OF THE COMMUNITY, OR RELIANCE ON THE INFORMATION PRESENTED IN ANY PART OF THE COMMUNITY OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY PART OF THE COMMUNITY, EVEN IF BI HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
ALL DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS OR OTHERWISE EXISTING AT LAW (1) ARE OF THE ESSENCE OF THE AGREEMENT OF THE PARTIES, AND (2) SURVIVE ANY TERMINATION, EXPIRATION OR RESCISSION OF THESE TERMS.
BI does not offer formal customer support on the Community. BI employees or representatives may post on the Community, but this activity should not be seen as a replacement for the official BI support procedures and provisions. The goal of the Community is to provide a platform for BI registered users who wish to exchange information about BI and its products and services. BI has the right, but not the obligation, in its sole discretion, to pre-screen, refuse, move, remove or delete any submissions for any reason or no reason whatsoever and without any notice. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with the use of any information, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such information, including any information that may be posted by any BI employee. BI's provision of the Community should in no way be construed as endorsement or approval of any third-party product, service, comment, position or information that may be mentioned or referred therein or any of the comments or posts made by any individual or third party.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify BI of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. BI cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to maintain the confidentiality of your password and account.

You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information. If you voluntarily disclose information, e.g. a telephone number or an email address, in the Community, that information may be collected and used by third parties to send you unsolicited messages, advertisements or for other purposes. BI does not control the actions of such third parties and is not liable for those actions. If you disclose personal information in the Community, you do so at your own risk.
BI may amend these Terms at any time and from time to time, for any reason or no reason and with or without notice to you. You manifest intent to accept any amended terms if you continue to use any part of the Community after such amended terms have been posted. You may not amend these Terms without the prior written consent of BI. Further, BI reserves the right to modify or discontinue all or any part of the Community at any time or from time to time, for any reason or nor reason and with or without notice. BI shall not be liable to you or any third party should BI exercise its right to modify or discontinue any part of the Community.
Personal Messaging (PM) System
BI may make available, to members who qualify in the sole discretion of BI, a personal messaging system ("PM System") that will allow such community members to communicate privately with each other. BI reserves the right to, for any reason or no reason (including if BI suspects that the PM System is being used to promote any activities that are unlawful, libelous, threatening, etc. or otherwise in violation of breach of the BI acceptable use policy and/or terms and conditions of use) to read, delete or edit such private messages – without providing notice or any reason – and/or to remove you from and prevent your further use of the PM System. Any use of the PM System that is found to be unlawful, libelous, or in violation or breach of the BI acceptable use policy and or terms and conditions of use, will see the PM System privileges withdrawn without reason or notice. BI also reserves the right to take any further action it deems necessary or appropriate.
These Terms represents the complete agreement concerning the subject matter of the Terms and, except as set forth herein, may be amended only by a writing executed by both parties.
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Switzerland, without giving effect to any principles of conflict of law. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be filed only in the state or federal courts located in Zurich, Switzerland, and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action.
If any of the provisions of these Terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
