We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to remove User Material that we determine, in our sole discretion, is inappropriate or for any other business reason. In no event does BroBible assume any responsibility or liability whatsoever for any User Material, and you agree to waive any legal or equitable rights or remedies you may have against BroBible with respect to such User Material.
