You agree that your Submissions (as defined in the Terms & Conditions) will comply with this User Content and Conduct Policy (the “Policy”). The Policy may be revised and updated by us from time to time without notice to you, so please check back here for any revisions or updates. All changes are effective immediately when we post them. Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Terms & Conditions.
The opinions expressed in Submissions are those of the submitter and not of Southwest. Southwest does not endorse any of the opinions expressed by submitters nor any responses. You are responsible for exercising careful and appropriate judgment in evaluating and taking action based on others’ Submissions, since such Submissions may reflect significantly different levels of knowledge and experience. You agree that Southwest is not responsible for any Submissions and will not be liable for any damages incurred as a result of your use of any such Submissions. Southwest has no obligation to monitor any links provided in Submissions, and is not responsible for such links, which are to be accessed at your own risk. You will not be compensated by Southwest for any Submission.
You represent and warrant that:
- You own or control all rights in and to your Submissions and have the right to grant the license granted to Southwest in the Terms & Conditions.
- All of your Submissions do and will comply with the Policy.
With respect to Submissions, you agree you will not engage in the following inappropriate conduct:
