Merchandise Sold On Or Through The Website
Neither Service Provider nor its third party service providers make any warranties with respect to any of the merchandise, products, and/or services featured, mentioned, or sold by others on or through the Website.

You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Brooklynian and its affiliates and its and their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives, licensees, authorized designees, successors and assigns from any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, expenses, fees (including reasonable attorneys' fees and costs) that such parties may incur as a result of or arising from (i) any of your Content, (ii) your participation in any activities organized on or by the Service, (iii) the breach of any of your warranties, representations, covenants, responsibilities or other obligations set forth in these TOS, (iv) your violation of any person's intellectual property, privacy, publicity or other right, (v) the violation of any applicable laws and/or these TOS by you and/or anyone using your registered account to access and/or otherwise use the Service (in whole or in part), or (v) your willful misconduct or the willful misconduct of anyone accessing the Service through your registered account, in connection with your (and/or such other person's) use of the Service (in whole or in part).

This provision shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding any termination of your use of the Service.
Editing, Deletions, and Content Screening
Service Provider reserves the right (but undertakes no duty) to review, edit, move or delete any material provided for display or placed anywhere on the Website, forum, bulletin boards, in its sole discretion, without notice.
You can delete or modify your own Posts within a specific period of time (typically 60 to 90 minutes after you post). When content is deleted on Brooklynian, it may be deleted outright, though certain content types go into a “recycle bin” that helps insure against accidental deletion, and provides a safeguard if we need to undelete the content in the future.
When you send a Message directly to another user (or group of users), a copy is created just for that user, so--similar to how email works--deleting the message you sent will not delete the message they received: they have to choose to delete it.
Brooklynian does not as a matter of its ordinary practice pre-screen any Content submitted by you or other users of Brooklynian. However, Brooklynian (and/or any of its authorized designees) has the right to and may pre-screen or review after initial submission any of the Content for a variety of reasons, including, without limitation, for compliance with these TOS or applicable laws, or if otherwise desired or necessary, as determined by Brooklynian in its sole discretion.
We fully intend to enforce all of the TOS. If on any occasion we do not enforce any or all of the TOS, you should not consider it a waiver. We may assign all our rights and obligations under this statement to another party in an acquisition, merger, asset sale, operation of law, or other event. If a specific part of this Statement in found not to be enforceable, we the rest of the Statement will remain in full force and effect.
Service Provider reserves the right to post, from time to time, additional rules of usage that apply to specific parts of the Website. Such additional rules will be posted in the relevant parts of the Website. Your continued use of the Website constitutes your TOS to comply with these additional rules.
