7. GUIDELINES FOR USE
7.1 The primary purpose of the Websites is to enable members with similar interests to network with each other, exchange stories or pictures, and even to meet each other in person. In this regard, this website is much like a national "Personals" section, and the same care that one would exercise when giving information to strangers, or setting up meetings with strangers, must be used here. Radiant will never give information about one User to another User. Further, Users are cautioned that giving any information to another User on the Websites carries with it significant risks. These risks are greatly increased if you plan to meet other Users face-to-face. Please use caution and common-sense when using the Websites.
7.2 Radiant and its Licensees do not control the information provided by other users that are made available through the Websites. You may find other user's information to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or deceptive. Please use caution, common sense, and safety when using our Website. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other Website members. Because it is not involved in member interactions, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more members or those who have posted, viewed, or used information on the Websites, you release Radiant and its Licensees, including its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries and employees, from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code § 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor." Radiant reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and other members.

10.1 User hereby agrees that every dispute or difference between User and Radiant and its Licensees, or between User and other Website users, arising out of the use of the Websites, content contained, or services provided therein, shall be settled first by a meeting of the Parties attempting to confer and resolve the dispute in a good faith manner. If the Parties cannot resolve their dispute after conferring, any party may require the other party to submit the matter to non--binding mediation, utilizing the services of an impartial professional mediator approved by both Parties. If the Parties cannot reach an agreement following mediation, the Parties agree to submit the matter to binding arbitration in Orange County , California . The arbitration shall be conducted on a confidential basis pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. Any decision or award as a result of any such arbitration proceeding shall include the assessment of costs, expenses, and reasonable attorney's fees and shall include a written record of the proceedings and a written determination of the arbitrators. Absent an agreement to the contrary, any such arbitration shall be conducted by an arbitrator experienced in contract law. The Parties reserve the right to object to any individual who shall be employed by or affiliated with a competing organization or entity. In the event of any such dispute or difference, either party may give to the other notice requiring that the matter be settled by arbitration.
