Use Of Web Forums At Your Own Risk. The TVTango.com Service contains bulletin board services, chat areas, news groups, forums, communities and other message and communication facilities (collectively "Forums").
TVTango.com does not control the files, information, or messages (collectively, "Information") delivered to or displayed in the Forums, unless otherwise noted therein, and TVTango.com assumes no duty to, and does not, monitor or endorse Information within the Forums, nor does TVTango.com represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy or reliability thereof or that the Information complies with the terms of this Agreement.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, we grant the operators of search engines permission to use robots to copy materials from the site for the sole purpose of creating publicly-available searchable indexes of the materials, but not caches or archives of the materials, provided that we reserve the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases.
