We cannot control what other people do with your information, so please use common sense about the information you include in your profile and provide to other users.

You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to the content that you post; that the content is accurate; that use of the content you supply does not violate the Terms and will not injure or violate the rights of any person or entity; and that you will indemnify iSport for all claims resulting from content you supply.
