You alone are responsible for all information and materials that you post to the site and the consequences of any of your activities on the site.

PM4NGOs reserves the right, but does not have an obligation, to monitor and/or review all information and materials posted to the site or through the site, and PM4NGOs is not responsible for, and assumes no liability for, any such materials posted by users. However, PM4NGOs reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation or government request, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, that in PM4NGOs’s sole discretion are objectionable or in violation of these Membership Terms, PM4NGOs’s policies or applicable law.

PM4NGOs may also impose limits on certain features of the forums or restrict your access to part or all of the forums without notice or penalty if we believe you are in breach of these Membership Terms or applicable law, or for any other reason without notice or liability.

It is important to remember that comments submitted to a forum may be recorded and stored in multiple places, both on our site 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.

It is therefore important that you are careful and selective about the personal information that you disclose about yourself and others, and in particular, you should not disclose sensitive, embarrassing, proprietary or confidential information in your comments to our public forums.
