(1) Remove or refuse to post any User Content for any or no reason in our sole discretion.
(2) Take any action with respect to any User Content that we deem necessary or appropriate in our sole discretion, including if we believe that such User Content violates these Terms, is defamatory, offensive, inaccurate, deceptive or misleading, illegal, infringes any intellectual property right or other right of any person or entity, threatens the personal safety of users of the Services or the public or could create liability for the RCX or any User.
(3) Disclose your identity or other information about you to any third party who claims that material posted by you violates their rights, including their intellectual property rights or their right to privacy.

B) Entire Agreement.
ii. No modification or amendment to these Terms will be binding upon us unless in a written instrument signed by a duly authorized representative of RCX or posted on or through the Services by us.
