You may not use meta tags or any other “hidden text” utilizing the WIZDM name or trademarks without the express written consent of WIZDM.
Content submitted by users for inclusion on the Service (including, without limitation, any information submitted on message boards, forums or other public areas of the Service) is sometimes referred to in these Terms of Service as “User Submissions.” Whether or not any User Submission is published, it will be subject to these Terms of Service. WIZDM does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to a User Submission, regardless of whether or not it is published. You are solely responsible for your own User Submissions and the consequences of posting or publishing them. You represent and warrant that you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents and permissions to your User Submissions (and all content included therein), including the right to authorize WIZDM to use the User Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service.
In addition to User Submissions, the Service may be presented in such a way as to permit comments (“Comments”) with respect to certain content. You understand and agree that with respect to any Comments, the WIZDM does not control the Comments. The WIZDM cannot and will not evaluate, and shall not be responsible for, the accuracy, reliability, completeness, veracity or suitability of any Comments or for verifying the identity of anyone posting a Comment. Although the WIZDM will try to monitor Comments on the Service and flag and/or remove Comments which the WIZDM finds unsuitable (as determined in its sole and absolute discretion) the WIZDM shall be under no obligation to do so and shall have no liability to any party for failure to monitor or remove any Comments or User Submissions. Prior to being granted access to post Comments, individuals may be required to input or provide certain information, including (but not necessarily limited to) their name and/or email address which may be displayed in connection with their Comment; the WIZDM reserves the right to impose any additional restrictions or requirements with respect to Comments in its sole discretion.
You hereby grant to WIZDM a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual license, with the right to sub-license, to reproduce, distribute, transmit, create derivative works of, publicly display and publicly perform any User Submissions, Comments, or any other materials or information (including, without limitation, ideas for new or improved products or services) you communicate to WIZDM by all means and in any media now known or hereafter developed. You also grant to WIZDM the right to use your name in connection with the submitted materials and other information as well as in connection with all advertising, marketing and promotional material related thereto. You agree that you shall have no recourse against WIZDM for any alleged or actual infringement or misappropriation of any proprietary right in your communications to WIZDM. You further agree that it shall be your sole responsibility to verify and/or confirm any information contained in the User Submission prior to relying on it, in connection with which you assume all risk.
We neither endorse nor assume any liability or responsibility for the contents, accuracy, or legitimacy of any User Submission. We generally do not pre-screen, monitor, or edit User Submissions. However, we and our agents have the right at their sole discretion to remove any User Submission or other content that, in our judgment, does not comply with these Terms of Service and any other rules of user conduct for the Service, or is otherwise harmful, objectionable, or inaccurate. We are not responsible for any failure or delay in removing any such User Submission, Comment, or other content. You hereby consent to such removal and waive any claim against us arising out of such removal of any User Submission, Comment, or the like, whether it is your own or another user’s. See “Copyrights, Licenses, and User Submissions” above for a description of the procedures to be followed in the event that any party believes that a User Submission infringes on any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, right of publicity, or other proprietary rights of any party.
The Service may link to websites or services operated by third parties, and/or parties other than and, unaffiliated with WIZDM. Such links are provided for your convenience only. WIZDM does not control such third-party websites and is not responsible for any content thereon, including any comments posted on such third-party websites. WIZDM’s inclusion of links to such third-party websites does not amount to or imply any warranty or endorsement of the material on such sites or any association with their affiliates, owners, or operators. You agree that WIZDM is not responsible for any such third-party websites and services or any content thereon and you agree to hold WIZDM harmless from any and all claims or liability arising from your use of such third-party websites or services. Any concerns or questions related to third-party websites should be directed to the appropriate contact person for such third party.
WIZDM will not tolerate violations of intellectual property rights on the Service. If you are a copyright owner and believe that any User Submission, Comment, or other content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). To provide WIZDM notice of an infringement, you must provide a written communication to the attention of “DMCA Infringement Notification Dept.” care of [email protected] that sets forth the information specified by the DMCA, see www.copyright.gov/title17/92chap5.html#512). The notification must include: (i) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site; (iii) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit WIZDM to locate the material; (iv) Information reasonably sufficient to permit WIZDM to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted; (v) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. You may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that an activity is infringing your copyright.

Teaching or Participating in a Class
These Terms of Service and the Governing Documents are in addition to any agreements, releases or other documents (the “Class Agreements”) that a teacher and student may enter into in connection with a class, including any Class Agreements entered into through the Service. Students and teachers are each responsible to the other for complying with the terms of the Class Agreements, but WIZDM has no control over either party’s compliance. Among other things, WIZDM cannot control (a) the provisions of the Class Agreements, (b) the accuracy or legality of the Class Agreements or (c) any party’s performance of its obligations under the Class Agreements. Accordingly, WIZDM shall not be held responsible for any liability arising out of the Class Agreements or any actions that you may take in reliance thereon and is not a party to any transaction between you and any other user. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU HEREBY RELEASE WIZDM AND ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, AFFILIATES AND THEIR RESPECTIVE SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “WIZDM PARTIES”) FROM ANY CLAIMS OR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND OR NATURE, KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED OR UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED OR UNDISCLOSED, RELATING TO ANY DISPUTE RELATING TO THE CLASS AGREEMENTS OR ANY TRANSACTION OR ATTEMPTED TRANSACTION WITH ANOTHER USER OF THE SERVICE (WHETHER A STUDENT OR TEACHER). YOU AGREE AND UNDERSTAND AND INTEND THAT THIS ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND RELEASE IS BINDING UPON YOU AND YOUR HEIRS, EXECUTORS, AGENTS, ADMINISTRATORS AND ASSIGNS.

As a result, we have no control over the identity or actions of the individuals who are present at these classes, and we request that our users exercise caution and good judgment when participating in Classes. You acknowledge and agree that by participating in any class (whether as a student or teacher) you may be exposed to a variety of risks and hazards, which may or may not be foreseen, including (without limitation) personal injury, property damage and death.
