Notwithstanding the foregoing, Choice is not required to use any Communication.
You are solely responsible for your Communication, the consequences of making a Communication, and your reliance on any Communication. Choice is not responsible for the consequences of any Communication. Choice is not responsible for screening or monitoring Communications made to this Site by users. If notified by a user of a Communication allegedly in violation of these Terms and Conditions, Choice may investigate the allegation and determine in good faith and its sole discretion whether to remove such Communication.
