Participating in the CCH Community
The CCH Community is intended to promote the free exchange of information and networking between Community members. In order to maximize this:
- CCH will not use your Community "General" profile or registration information for marketing or sales communications.
- You may edit, update or remove your profile information at any time by logging into the Community and visiting your profile pages or by contacting the CCH Community Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Like any community, the postings are most valuable when everyone obeys certain basic guidelines and rules for online behavior. These Terms are presented here to highlight what is expected of you and what you can expect from other participants when using the CCH Community.
Users of the CCH Community are responsible for exercising careful and appropriate judgment in evaluating and taking action based on other participants’ postings on CCH Community, since such postings may reflect significantly different levels of knowledge and experience by participants.

Participants may post hypertext links to content hosted and maintained by third parties. CCH has no obligation to monitor these linked sites, and is not responsible for them. Accessing any such linked site is done entirely at the user’s own risk.
