8.5 It is important to remember that information and content submitted to a forum, such as a chat service, may be recorded and stored in multiple places, both on our Website and elsewhere on the Internet, which are likely to be accessible for a long time, and you have no control over who will read them eventually. If you elect to participate in a chat service that enables you to correspond with other participants of such chat service, some of your account information and other materials that you provide, such as your username, may be shared with other participants of the chat service. You alone are responsible for the content and consequences of any of your messages or other materials submitted to the Website or through these chat services. Because of the anonymity provided by usernames, you may not know at all times who you are interacting with in certain chat services. It is therefore important that you are careful and selective about the information that you disclose about yourself and others, and in particular, you should not disclose any sensitive, personal, proprietary or confidential information in your messages, comments or posts to our public forums and community features. ALSO, WHEN USING SUCH FEATURES, DO NOT DISCLOSE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION (SUCH AS YOUR REAL NAME, PHONE NUMBER, ADDRESS OR OTHER INFORMATION THAT WOULD ENABLE OTHERS TO IDENTIFY OR LOCATE YOU, EITHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE).

8.6 While using the chat services or other community features, you may be exposed to content of other users with which you may disagree or that you may find offensive, indecent, or objectionable, or that is inaccurate, misleading, or illegal. You expressly assume and agree to bear any and all risks associated with the use of any such content and your exposure to any such content, including any reliance by you on the accuracy, integrity, usefulness, or completeness of such content. To the full extent permitted by law, Chit Chat City will not be liable, and we disclaim all liability, in connection with any harm, loss, or damages of any amount or type arising from your access to, or use of, the services or any content posted to, downloaded from, or otherwise made available through the Website, whether that content is posted to, downloaded from, or otherwise made available through the Website by Chit Chat City, you, another user, or any other third party.

8.7 We encourage you to report to us at http://www.chitchatcity.com/contact, any suspected violations of this User Agreement or any other additional rules posted in connection with such activity or service, in particular as they relate to inappropriate behavior or activity in our chat services and other community features.
