a. Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)

Post  Kev Bailey on Tue Jul 21, 2009 3:53 pm

By registering with the Internet Bonsai Club (IBC), and using this forum, you are agreeing:

   * that you will not post material which you know is defamatory, abusive, vulgar, harassing, threatening, obscene, or sexually explicit.
   * not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material.
   * not to use material posted on this site unless you have the express permission of the copyright holder (the author of the work, photographer of the photo or artist of the sketch) For clarity, this relates to taking material from IBC for use on other sites. Using the Quote function to repost other members' images and comments within the forum (e.g. for purposes of commenting or using another tree/stone/display etc as an example of a point you are making)  is acceptable provided it is not overused.
* that you will not post material such as spam, advertisement of goods or materials that you sell, or any kind of private, commercial solicitation.
   * that the information you post to the site is to the best of your knowledge true and accurate and that you are solely responsible for the content of your posted messages.
   * furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related web sites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries.

This is a worldwide forum.  Members come from many different lands and cultures, beliefs and religions.  Please avoid discussion of religion and partisan politics.  The Internet Bonsai Club is meant to be a non-confrontational, friendly group that is open to all without challenge to their personal beliefs

Posted messages express the views of the author and not the view or opinion of the IBC.  Since we do not actively monitor the posting of messages, it is impossible for us to confirm accuracy of all posts, and we are not responsible for their content, and do not guarantee accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information.

Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify admin or a moderator of the forum immediately via Private Message (PM button). Do NOT use the "Report an Abuse" link as that goes straight to the tech guys at Forumotion.

We may remove content that does not meet the terms of this agreement. But since this is a manual process, we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well. We will not remove information once it is posted, unless it fails to meet our fair use policy requirements. Your posts will, in all likelihood already have been archived by the Wayback Machine, which is entirely out of our control.  

You may choose your user name. We advise that you keep the name appropriate (and real names are always best). With this user account, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator. You also agree to never use another person's account for any reason. We highly recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account.

After you register and log in to this forum, you should fill out your profile. Please give accurate information. Any information we determine to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without notice. Other sanctions may apply. None of the information contained in your profile is sold or otherwise shared with anyone except to the extent that users of the forum may read the information you have proffered.

Also note that the forum software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your user name 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.

We reserve the right to change the terms of this agreement at any time with appropriate notice posted on the forum.

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” - Charles Darwin.
