  • Do not use the Community Forums for unlawful purposes;
  • Do not impersonate another person;
  • Do not allow any other person or entity to use your identification to post or view comments; and

If notified by a user of communications that are alleged not to conform to the terms of this Section, HYDROGEN HIGHWAY may investigate the allegation and determine in its sole discretion to remove or request the removal of the communications. HYDROGEN HIGHWAY reserves the right to remove communications that are abusive, illegal, disruptive or that otherwise fail to conform with these Terms and Conditions. HYDROGEN HIGHWAY reserves the right (but is not obligated) to edit or delete any communications posted on the HYDROGEN HIGHWAY site, regardless of whether such communications violate these standards for content.

Furthermore, HYDROGEN HIGHWAY reserves the right (but is not obligated) to monitor, edit or disclose any type of posting on the Community Forums for adherence to the Terms and Conditions, if required in the course of normal operations and maintenance of the HYDROGEN HIGHWAY site, or if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with the law or comply with legal process served; (ii) protect and defend the rights of HYDROGEN HIGHWAY or others; or (iii) act in an emergency to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.

You may not post or transmit any material of any nature, including text, audio, software, animation or photographs, belonging to any person or party other than yourself, without the prior written consent of such owner. Simply because material is available on the Internet does not mean it is in the public domain. The vast majority of materials on the Internet are protected by copyright and trademark laws. HYDROGEN HIGHWAY shall have the right, but not the obligation, to monitor any Community Forum areas of the Web site to determine compliance with these Terms and Conditions and any other operating rules that may be established by HYDROGEN HIGHWAY from time to time.

Through your use of the HYDROGEN HIGHWAY Community Forums, you are agreeing to all of the aforementioned Terms and Conditions of Use for such Community Forums contained herein.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless HYDROGEN HIGHWAY and its officers, directors, affiliated companies, employees, agents, licensors and suppliers, from and against any and all claims, actions or demands, liabilities and settlements, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, resulting from, or alleged to result from, your use of any Community Forums or use by others of any community forums with respect to you, including, without limitation, any claim of libel, defamation, harassment, violation of rights of privacy or publicity, loss of service or infringement of intellectual property or other rights, or violation of these Terms and Conditions.
