You specifically agree that no licensor, supplier, or information provider to TCGHS or its affiliates, officers, directors, employees or agents, or any of their successors or assigns, shall have any liability to you for any reason or under any theory whatsoever, based upon the information provided on or through the Website.

Featured Links and Advertisements
The Website may contain hyperlinks to websites offered by parties other than TCGHS. Such hyperlinks are provided for your reference and convenience only.
TCGHS is a participant in several affiliate advertising programs (such as Amazon Associates) designed to provide a means for organizations to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to the affiliate’s websites.

Termination of Privileges
TCGHS may provide chat rooms, message boards, social media, research registries, and other public posting areas or interest group forums (“Forums”) on the Website. If TCGHS provides any such Forum or if you use a Forum, you are solely responsible for your own communications and the consequences of posting those communications. TCGHS does not assume any responsibility for the consequences of any Forum communications on or arising from the use of the Website.

- Do not use the Forums for unlawful purposes.
- Do not impersonate another person.
- Do not allow any other person or entity to use your identification to post or view comments.

TCGHS reserves the right to record dialogue in the Forums. TCGHS is not responsible for screening or monitoring material posted by users or any other person or entity. If notified by a user of communications that are alleged not to conform to the terms of this Section, TCGHS may investigate the allegation and determine in its sole discretion to remove or request the removal of the communications.
TCGHS does not represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any of the material posted by Forum users or endorse any opinions expressed by such users. Any reliance upon content posted in a Forum is at your own risk.
Any public Forum areas are for discussion and debate only. You may not use any Forum area to post or transmit advertisements or commercial solicitations of any kind. You may not post or transmit any material of any nature, including text, audio, software, animation or photographs, belonging to any person or party other than yourself, without the prior written consent of such owner.
