Always use caution when giving out any personally identifying information about yourself in any Communication Service. Intel does not control or endorse the content, messages or information found in any Communication Service and, therefore, Intel specifically disclaims any liability with regard to the Communication Services and any actions resulting from your participation in any Communication Service. Intel Members are not authorized Intel spokespersons, and their views do not necessarily reflect those of Intel.

Materials uploaded to a Communication Service may be subject to posted limitations on usage, reproduction and/or dissemination. You are responsible for adhering to such limitations if you download the materials.
