3. How we handle your data
3.2 If you post content to a public area of our website, such as on our blog, it becomes available in the public domain. We have no control over who sees it or what anyone does with it.
3.3 Even if access to your text is behind a user registration, it remains effectively in the public domain because someone has only to register and log in to access it. You should, therefore, avoid posting unnecessary confidential information.
3.4 Posting content of any sort does not change your ownership of the copyright to it. We have no claim over it, and we will not protect your rights for you.
3.5 You understand that you are personally responsible for any defamation or being in breach of someone else’s intellectual property rights or any law, which may occur as a result of any content having been posted by you.
3.6 You accept all risk and responsibility for determining whether any content is in the public domain and not confidential.
