As a result, Board Member Connect has no control over the quality, safety or legality of vendors’ or advertisers’ products or services, or the truth or accuracy of any information. Board Member Connect makes no representations about any of vendors’ or advertisers’ products, services, or information provided through or on Board Member Connect. 

Board Member Connect may take any action with respect to Content that it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if it believes that such Content could create liability for Board Member Connect, damage Board Member Connect’s brand or public image, or cause Board Member Connect to lose (in whole or in part) the services of its ISPs or other suppliers.
