ToS - Read before using this website

Recommended Posts

several months ago, the staff discussed posting the ToS on the board. it's always been a part of the registration page that everyone must sign, but who really reads the stuff they agree to anyway? besides, there was some stuff that wasn't covered in it, and at the time we discussed it, all of the staff contributed suggestions on what needed to be included.

i'm posting the ammended ToS below. you might each want to familiarize yourself with it.

First, this website uses cookies in order to function. The forum software would be disabled if cookies were turned off -- and so would most of the Internet. We do not use cookies that track you from site to site. The founder, KC, is a privacy freak. Personal information is never shared with third parties -- and never will be.

We plan to abide by the "EU cookie law" when it becomes clear that it applies to websites outside of the EU (we are located in the USA). At this time, it is not believed that this website breaks the EU law or that we need a banner informing users of the obvious fact that forum software requires cookies in order to function.

------------------------------------

MEMBERS OF THE MEDIA: if you want to interview people for a radio, TV, or magazine or newspaper article, please contact a member of the administration via private message. Provide us with the pertinent information, and preferably a link to some of your previous works, or to a previous broadcast. If we determine that your show might be more beneficial than harmful, we will respond and let you know. If you post a request without our approval, it will be removed.

THE BASIC RULES (ToS)

1) treat others with respect. You can be blunt without being mean about it.

2) if the person in question is a pedophile, troll or freak, disregard rule #1.

[ Note from KC/Owner: I would like to make one point crystal clear: if you are a pedophile, you are at the wrong website. The moderators here have over 100 years of combined experience with computers and computer security. Some are experts. I can and will hunt you down and turn over all incriminating evidence to the police, any local gangs, prisons, post your information on public perv websites or worse and possibly much worse. If you abuse children, you have stepped into the wrong door. I will do everything in my power to stop anyone from abusing children. If this statement makes you uncomfrontable, then you should get the hell out of here while you still can. ]

3) CousinCouples.com complies with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). You represent and warrant that, in compliance with COPPA, you are thirteen (13) years of age. Users under the age of thirteen (13) are not eligible to use our services. This site bills itself as a PG-13 website, not PG and not R. So, we are a little edgy at times. Adult themes are discussed, but posts of this nature are heavily moderated. User discretion is adviced as it is on any puble forum. 

4) never act superior to any staff member. If you have a problem with staff, take it up with them privately.

5) respect religious differences.

6) watch your language and use of graphic sexual descriptions in posts, we have a very broad range of visitors and members. this is not a porn site.

7) under NO circumstances is any member permitted to have multiple accounts or to use another member's account without express permission of the administrators.

 

THE STANDARD STUFF:

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.

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.

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.
