In particular, by posting material you represent and warrant that you are either the owner of the copyright in the material or have received permission from the copyright owner to post such materials.

You further represent and warrant that the material is not a trade secret of another person or entity and that you are not subject to any other obligation of confidentiality with respect to the material. By posting materials, you hereby grant the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association, its affiliates, successors, and assigns, and the other users of this listserv a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license to reproduce, distribute and display the material and to create derivative works therefrom and to otherwise use information from the material.

The poster is entirely responsible for the content of a posting. ELFA does not exert editorial control over materials posted on any ELFA email discussion group. However, in the event that an inappropriate listing is brought to ELFA's attention, ELFA reserves the right to take all appropriate action. It is the responsibility of all subscribers, and not the ELFA, to comply with antitrust laws, intellectual property laws, securities laws, and all other applicable laws and regulations when using any ELFA email discussion group.

Subscribers will not post or respond to messages which encourage or facilitate agreements or other conduct which may violate the antitrust laws, such as agreements with respect to prices or interest rates; profit margins; salaries; boycotts of suppliers, customers or competitors; market shares or division of markets; allocation of customer; or restrictions on advertising, the products or services that companies may provide or other competitive practices. ELFA has a long-standing antitrust compliance program, and participation in any ELFA email discussion group is fully subject to that program.

ELFA specifically disclaims any and all liability for any claims or damages resulting from any information or materials posted on any ELFA email discussion group.
