  • Messages may be posted within the Service by registered users. You understand that any information, commentary, recommendations, advice, investment ideas or materials provided on any bulletin board, message board, chat services, or other online conference or telecast through the Service by a user of the Service or others is not the views of, or attributable to Intrade, and that any and all individuals providing such information are not employees, associated persons, or agents of, or otherwise affiliated with Intrade.

Intrade may engage independent contractors to assist Intrade in monitoring the Service for violations of these Terms and Conditions.
  • Neither Intrade nor any independent contractor engaged by it assumes any responsibility for, and does not guarantee, the accuracy, currency, completeness or usefulness of information in any material in the Service and it does not endorse any opinions or recommendations posted by you or other users.

You agree that to the extent that you rely on information posted within the Service, you do so solely at your own risk.
  • You acknowledge that Intrade does not pre-screen Content, but that Intrade and its designees shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to refuse or move any Content that is available via the Service. Without limiting the foregoing Intrade and its designees shall have the right to remove any Content that violates the TOS or is otherwise objectionable. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Content.

Intrade reserves the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defence and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you.
