MB Legal Disclaimers

Masala Board (MB) is a dynamic forum where members post messages at a rapid pace. All the views expressed and messages posted on Masala Talk forums are those of the individual users. By visiting this site you must agree not to hold the Owners, Administrators or Moderators of Masala Talk Forums responsible for any views, messages or content posted by the individuals.

Considering the real time nature of this message board, it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the contents and are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message.

Any links provided by us or advertisements displayed on Masala Board are for informational purposes only and we are not responsible for any damages or consequences.

Objectionable Content:
If there is any objectionable content that does not confirm to our MB usage policy, please use the 'Report Post' link within the specific post. You may also bring it to the attention of any Moderator who is online or send a private message to the Administrators/Moderators.

Copyright Violations:
Masala Board is a forum where members post links to content on the Internet. We do not host files from the links provided by members on our server but just index them much like Google and other search engines. This site merely indexes other sites' contents so the hosting provider or the owners of MasalaTalk.com cannot be held responsible for the contents of any linked sites or any links contained in a linked site. The copyright of the images/videos on other sites belongs to their orginal publisher/photographer as the case may be. In case of copyright infringements, you must always report to the actual host where your material is illegally stored (Sites such as Rapidshare, Photobucket and other image sharing services) rather than MasalaTalk.com, which is an indexing service.

If you feel there is any copyright infringement on our server, you must send e-mail to indianmasala@yahoo.com and also alert the Administrator through a private message on Masala Board. You must include the following information:
i).Identify in sufficient detail the copyrighted work that you believe has been infringed upon and list the URL for each allegedly infringing result, document, or item. You must include a valid working link that leads to a thread or individual post where applicable.
ii).Provide information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you.
iii).Send a signed statement (notarized if possible) stating: 'I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.' and 'I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.'
After the copyright complaint has been received, Masala Board reserves the right to ask the complainer for proof substantiating the copyright claim.

If you do not agree with any of the above disclaimers, please do not continue viewing and leave the site immediately.
