DiamondGarden Rules & Guidelines

1 post in this topic

DiamondGarden visitors and members must follow the rules outlined in these Terms & Conditions:

 

General Responsibility
By using this site, you agree that you will not post any messages that are hateful, inappropriate, threatening to other members, or in violation of any laws. In addition to these general guidelines, more specific rules may be listed within individual sections of DiamondGarden, and you must adhere to those rules as well. Members who consistently abuse this privilege by ignoring these rules will be warned or banned from posting. Our moderators & admins will subjectively decide if these rules have been violated, and our administrators will make all final decisions.

Specific Posting Guidelines
Moderators at DiamondGarden may warn members for posting messages that violate our guidelines. Warnings accumulate over time until those members are eventually banned.


Unsolicited Advertising
Threads and posts containing any unsolicited advertising or spam are not allowed and will be deleted as soon as possible. Members who post spam messages anywhere on the site at any time will be banned from posting or registering for another membership at DiamondGarden.

 

Posting of Copyrighted Material

Threads and posts containing links to unlicensed downloads of copyrighted material, including but not limited to recorded music in are not allowed because of legal concerns, and will be deleted as soon as possible.

Content Disclaimer
Although the administrators and moderators of the site will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this site, members are allowed to publish messages immediately, without any initial moderation. Therefore, it is impossible for us to review all messages immediately. All topics and messages published on here solely express the views and intent of their individual authors, and as such, neither the owners of DiamondGarden nor Invision Power Services can be held responsible for the content posted or linked within any message.

 

DiamondGarden Liability Disclaimer
Owners of copyrighted content might be concerned if and when a music stream, video, image, or photograph appears within a page on DiamondGarden as part of a thread on our site. However, it is very important that you understand no such content has actually been uploaded to or hosted on our server. We do not host, duplicate, or claim to own any such content.

Inline linking and/or hyperlinking content hosted on other web sites is not an act of copyright infringement as established under U.S. law. If you are the owner of copyrighted content that is accessible via inline links or hyperlinks on DiamondGarden, it is your responsibility to determine where the content is actually hosted. For embedded streams or videos, simply double-click within the embedded content. For images or photographs, right-click on the inline-linked image and choose "Properties"; you will then see the web address of the content.

If the content is originating from your own web server(s), it is your responsibility to disable inline linking from your server(s) so that DiamondGarden and other web sites may not link to it. If the content is originating from another external web site, it is your responsibility to contact the external web site that is actually re-hosting and/or duplicating your content. If you are a content owner and you do not understand this process, we suggest that you take the time to research and learn about inline linking and hyperlinking as it relates to U.S. copyright law.


If you have any concerns, feel free to send a message to us via the "Contact Us" link at the top of any page on the front page, and we will gladly cooperate with you, but you would be much better served by following our instructions above and determining the appropriate action to take.

DiamondGarden Rights Disclaimer
The administrators and moderators of DiamondGarden reserve the right to remove, edit, move, or close any thread or any post, including blog posts and comments, and warn, ban, or delete any member, for any reason.
