2. Modifications and Notices
FPDI may revise this Agreement, at any time, by updating this posting. FPDI may give notice to our users of such changes to this Agreement by means of a general notice on the Site. Continued use of the Site after such changes are posted will signify your agreement to these revised terms. As a result, you should visit this page periodically to review this Agreement.
Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, all materials displayed or otherwise accessible on the Site, including without limitation, news articles, guides, checklists, templates, forms, text, photographs, images, illustrations, graphics, icons, videos, and code (collectively, “Materials“) and the selection and arrangement of the contents of the Site are protected by copyright, pursuant to Canadian copyright laws, international conventions and other copyright laws. FPDI either owns the intellectual property rights, including copyright, or has acquired the necessary rights and/or licences, in the Materials contained in the Site. Portions of the Materials may have been licensed to FPDI and/or published on the Site by third parties. Any reproduction, modification, publication, transmission, transfer, sale, distribution, performance, display or exploitation of the Site or Materials, whether in whole or in part, without the express written permission of FPDI is strictly prohibited.
You agree not to sell or modify the Materials or reproduce, display, distribute, or otherwise use the Materials in any way for any public gain, or in any other manner that is likely to cause confusion among consumers, that dilutes the strength of FPDI’s or its licensors’ property, or that otherwise infringes FPDI’s or its licensors’ intellectual property rights. You further agree to in no other way misuse the Materials. The copying or scraping of the Site to use the Materials on any other application or website is prohibited.
You retain ownership in and to User Content (as that term is defined below) which you submit to FPDI on or through the Site, but you agree to grant FPDI a sub-licensable, fully paid-up, royalty-free, irrevocable licence to use your User Content, for any purpose determined by FPDI, in its sole discretion, and for that purpose, you waive your moral rights in respect of your User Content. FPDI reserves the right to disclose User Content, at any time, as is required to comply with applicable laws, and the right to remove any User Content that is in violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You also agree that any rights you assert in and to your User Content will be subject to standards of commercial reasonableness. You represent and agree that you will not submit User Content to FPDI, in violation of the rights of any other person. User Content (and FPDI’s use thereof in accordance with this Agreement) shall not knowingly infringe the rights of any third party. You hereby indemnify and hold harmless FPDI, its officers, directors, subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, representatives, agents, licensors, service providers, contractors, suppliers or successors, and their respective successors, legal representatives, heirs and assigns, from any and all liability or loss, including reasonable counsel fees, which it or they suffer in connection with any claim or action by reason of a breach of the foregoing representation and warranty.

6. Submissions & Interaction with the Site
As permitted by the Site, you may be able to post, transmit, or submit messages, opinions, or other content, including, but not limited to, text, documents, links, photographs, images, illustrations, graphics or multimedia clips, (collectively “User Content“) to our Site, and to interact with FPDI and other users within, or in connection with, the Site (collectively, the “Forums“), to the extent that such functionality is made available on the Site, from time to time. FPDI accepts no responsibility whatsoever in connection with, or arising from, User Content. FPDI does not endorse, and has no control over, the content of User Content which is submitted to the Forums. User Content submitted to the Forums is not necessarily reviewed by FPDI prior to posting and does not necessarily reflect the opinions or policies of FPDI. FPDI makes no warranties, express or implied, as to User Content which may be posted in the Forums, including such content’s accuracy, timeliness and reliability. Nonetheless, FPDI reserves the right to prevent you from submitting User Content to Forums and to edit, restrict or remove such User Content for any reason at any time. FPDI assumes no responsibility for actively monitoring the Forums for inappropriate or outdated User Content. If at any time FPDI chooses, in its sole discretion, to monitor the Forums, FPDI nonetheless assumes no responsibility for the substance of the User Content, no obligation to modify or remove any inappropriate or outdated User Content, and no responsibility for the conduct of the user submitting User Content. In submitting User Content to the Forums, you agree to strictly limit yourself to discussions about the subject matter for which the Forums are intended. You agree that FPDI accepts no liability whatsoever if it decides to prevent your User Content from being submitted or posted to the Site or if it edits, restricts or removes your User Content. You also agree to permit any other user of the Site to access, view, store or reproduce your User Content for that other user’s personal use and not to restrict or inhibit the use of the Site by any other person.
