  5. Use of Services; Assumption of Risk.    The Services may not be accessed or used where prohibited by law. You understand that by accessing or using the Services, you may encounter content that may be deemed sexually explicit, mature, offensive, indecent or objectionable, which content may or may not be identified as having explicit language or adult themes, and which in certain circumstances may be due to your interactions with other users or members in the course of accessing or using the Services. In addition certain content and materials available on or through the Services are inappropriate for viewing by minors or by persons who do not wish to be exposed to sexually explicit material. Commercially available parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software or filtering services) may assist you in limiting access to material that is sexually explicit or harmful to minors. If you are interested in learning more about these protections, information is available at www.cybersitter.com, www.netnanny.com or other analogous sites providing information on such protections. The preceding links are provided for information purposes only and not intended to act as an endorsement of these entities, their services or policies and we are not affiliated with them.

It is your responsibility to take all advisable and necessary precautions when interacting with individuals you meet or come into contact with through the Services.

  6. Your Additional Representations and Warranties. You further represent and warrant to us, under penalty of perjury, as follows:
