The Professional Participant is under no duty to further investigate, follow-up, review, pursue, take further action, or to continue to represent the client. The duration of such professional-to-client relationship or representation is presumed to end as soon as the responding Professional Participant provides the last answer or follow-up communication in the exchange. You acknowledge and understand that in limited circumstances, FOF may be required or permitted by law to disclose such communications. Furthermore, FOF shall have the perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive world-wide right to use, reproduce, modify, edit, translate, publish, perform, display, post, transmit and distribute your questions, comments, and/or the corresponding answers without compensation to you, anonymously or in the aggregate, for internal or external purposes, alone or as part of other works in any form, media, or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed and to sublicense such rights.
