6. Third Party Content and the Medmont User Forum
6.1 Our website often contains content provided by or uploaded by third parties (Third Party Content). For instance, the Medmont User Forum contains Third Party Content.

We do not filter, control, endorse, or make any recommendations or representations either expressly or implicitly concerning any Third Party Content. We are not the publisher of Third Party Content, we merely provide a platform for users to engage in a discussion for their own uses. If you rely on any Third Party Content, you do so completely at your own risk, and we are not responsible or liable for such.

(a) is incorrect, invalid, incomplete, inappropriate or not authorised;
(b) offends, defames, harasses, vilifies or harms you; or
(c) infringes your intellectual property rights or a duty of confidentiality to you,
you can submit a complaint to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will use reasonable endeavours to correct, update or remove the offending content. That said, you acknowledge that the Medmont User Forum is a platform for information sharing which may involve different points of view (particularly if any scientific or medical matter is in contention) and you agree that this is not reason alone for claiming any damage or seeking a change to or removal of any content.
6.3 It may be the case that a user uploads Third Party Content which, whether intentionally or inadvertently, contains personal information or data. If that Third Party Content contains your personal information or data without your consent and in breach of any privacy laws, we are not responsible or liable for such (as we did not upload the content) however you can contact us at email@example.com.
6.4 Medmont may remove Third Party Content that contravenes clause 6.2 (above) without any further notice to you or anyone.
6.5 If you wish to inquire of the person behind such Third Party Content or make a claim against or in respect of Third Party Content, such inquiry or claim is to be made to the Third Party Content provider directly, not to us.
