FUNKYFOGEY FORUM RULES


These rules and our privacy policy govern all activity in our forum and on this site generally. In using the forum and our site you agree to be bound by them.
  1. Your membership registration obligations

    1. In consideration of your use of our forum areas you agree to:

      1. provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself when filling out our registration form; and

      2. maintain and promptly update your registration data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If we have reasonable grounds to suspect that any information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your registration.

    2. Your username will be used to identify you in on-line competitions and forum areas. By all means be funky with your username but vulgar or offensive names will constitute a breach of these rules.

    3. If you are offended by another user's screen name, please e-mail us immediately. Similarly, if you are unsure about whether a username you would like to use may breach these rules, e-mail us for advice.

    4. We are concerned about the safety and privacy of all our users, including those who are funky but not yet fogey. Please remember that our forum is designed to appeal to a broad audience. It is your responsibility to determine whether any use of the forum areas and our site is appropriate for a child who may access it.

  2. Privacy policy

    Details provided by you and certain other information about you is subject to our privacy policy.

You understand that all data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages or other materials ('Content') whether publicly posted or privately transmitted are the sole responsibility of the person from which the Content originated. This means that you, and not Funkyfogey, are entirely responsible for all the Content that you upload, post or e-mail via our forum areas and our site. We cannot control all of the Content posted to any forum area and therefore we do not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of the Content.

    2. Under no circumstances will we be liable in any way or any Content, including (without limitation) any errors or omissions in any Content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of your use of any Content. You agree that you must evaluate and bear all risks associated with the use of any Content including any reliance on its accuracy or completeness. You also understand that by using our forum areas and our site, you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable.

      2. harm minors in any way;

      3. impersonate any person or entity, falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with the person or entity or disguise the origin of any Content;

      10. disrupt the normal flow of dialogue, cause the screen to scroll faster than other users of the forum areas are able to type or otherwise act in a manner that negatively affects other users' ability to engage in real time exchanges; or

      11. violate any applicable national or international laws or regulations.

    4. You acknowledge that we do not pre-screen Content but that we shall have the right (although not the obligation) in our sole discretion to move, modify or remove any Content that is available on or via any forum area or our site generally.






  1. Licence

    You grant to us a worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, exclusive licence (including the right to sub-licence) to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display any Content (in whole or in part) you upload, post or e-mail and/or to incorporate such Content in other works in any form, media or technology now known or developed.
  1. Indemnity

    You agree to indemnity and hold us and our subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, officers, agents or partners, harmless from and against any direct or indirect loss or damage (including consequential loss and loss of profits, goodwill or business opportunities) arising from any third party claim in relation to any Content you upload, post or e-mail on or through our forum areas or our site, your use of the forum areas and our site, or your breach of the provisions of these rules.

  2. Sanctions

    1. As soon as we are made aware of activities that breach these rules, our terms and conditions or our privacy policy, prompt action will be taken. If you witness such breach in the forum areas or anywhere else in our site please notify us immediately.

    2. On being made aware of such breaches we may ban, delete or prohibit any Content that relates to those breaches or that we judge harmful to individuals or the rights of Funkyfogey Limited or any of our members, affiliates, licensors or partners.

    3. We reserve the right to take whatever action we deem necessary to prevent such breaches including the following:

      1. breaches we deem minor may result simply in receipt of a warning e-mail; or

      2. breaches we deem serious may result in your automatic ban from our forum area and our site generally.

        All incidents will be logged and our decision is final in all such cases.

    4. Any breaches may lead to us reporting your activities to your Internet service provider and/or relevant authority or to legal action being taken against you, or both.

    5. In addition, we may at any time move, modify or remove any Content or take further legal action as a result of breaches or suspected breaches of these rules, our privacy policy, any applicable laws or regulations or where our rights or third party rights are threatened or infringed.
