Acceptable Use Policy
Last updated on March 12, 2016.
If you have questions about this Acceptable Use Policy or otherwise, you can reach us using the contact information provided below. We reserve the right to change this Acceptable Use Policy from time to time, and your use of the Site and any Forums will be governed by the Acceptable Use Policy in place at the time of your use.
Forums: Postings and Moderation
Metacon may, but is not obligated to, moderate or review the content of any posting activity taking place on the Forums. Metacon may edit or remove content on the Forums using our sole and absolute discretion at any time.
Metacon does not control the material submitted to Forums by Members. Such material may include information, data, text, messages, photographs, videos, images, graphics, audio recordings and other material (collectively, “Postings”). You acknowledge that Metacon cannot be held responsible for the behavior of Forum users, whether within a Forum or outside. We only provide a venue from which the Forums may be accessed. You acknowledge that all Postings express the views of their respective authors, and not Metacon’s views or those of any of Metacon’s affiliates.
You are solely responsible for the content of all Postings that you submit.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to delete, edit or modify any Posting submitted by you and/or to close any topic, at any time without notice to you. While we will attempt to remove or edit any objectionable material (where we agree) that is brought to our attention as quickly as reasonably possible, you acknowledge that we do not pre-screen Postings. As a result, there is always a possibility that, by using a Forum, you may be exposed to content that you find objectionable.
Complaints about the content of any Posting should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
and must contain details of the specific Posting giving rise to the complaint. If we do decide to moderate a Forum, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should an issue arise.
