When I registered with the forum, what did I agree to?
« on: November 20, 2009, 11:21:29 PM »
We like to keep Ulysses forums "family friendly";
Many of us who use computers often click "I agree" to various software and site contracts while really not ever reading them.
Though it is rare in an internet forum situation that it's ever needed, these are here for your perusal in case anyone ever wants to know.

The following is the registration agreement you accepted at sign up.
Code: [Select]
You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any
material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar,
hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening,
invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in
violation of any International or United States Federal law. You also
agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright
or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material.
Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and
solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.

 Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to
confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively
monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the
content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness,
or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express
the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum,
its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. Anyone who feels
that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an
administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the
owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content,
within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is
necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they
may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This
policy applies to member profile information as well.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages.
Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this
forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its
subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal
your identity (or any other related information collected on this
service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from
any situation caused by your use of this forum.

You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We
advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you
are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to
another person except an administrator, for your protection and for
validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account
for any reason. We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique
password for your account, to prevent account theft.

After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out
a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and
accurate information. Any information the forum owner or staff
determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or
without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.

Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the
event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted.
This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this

Also note that the software places a cookie, a text file containing bits
of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's
cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does
not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.
