Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996, 47 U.S.C.§ 230 (The “CDA”)
The CDA is a statute that Section 230 of the CDA is landmark legislation involving the regulation of content on the Internet. The statute does not allow you to sue providers of interactive computer services for any liability arising from content created by third parties; it provides that “[n]o provider . . . of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.” 47 U.S.C. § 230(c). It further provides that “[n]o cause of action may be brought and no liability may be imposed under any State or local law that is inconsistent with this section.” Id.§ 230(e)(3).
This site is a provider of “interactive computer services” under the CDA, and as such, our liability for defamation and other claims arising out of any postings to this site by third parties is limited as described therein. HTW is not responsible for content or any other information posted to this site by third parties. HTW does not warrant the accuracy of such postings or exercise any editorial control over such posts, nor do we assume any legal obligation for editorial control of content posted by third parties or liability in connection with such postings, including any responsibility or liability for investigating or verifying the accuracy of any content or any other information contained in such postings.

You release HTW, its affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents from all liability related to any and all claims and demands you may assert against any third party arising out of the Services. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states, “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.
HTW reserves the right to change these Terms of Service at any time in its sole discretion. Any changes will be effective immediately upon posting the revised version of these Terms of Service to HTW’ properties.
