Free Forums - Terms and Conditions

myfreeforum.org is about allowing you to build worthwhile online communities. In an ideal world that is all the terms and conditions we would like to impose.

But legally it is better if we spell things out. So please read the following "Do's and Don'ts before deciding whether to host your forum with us

Yes You CanNo You Can't
Create a forum, that promotes your business. Building a community, within which you will have links posted to your own and other web sites Create a forum with no intention of building a community, simply to fill it with link spam to your own or other web sites
Post links to media available on youtube.com or other legitimate services where media is publically available and policed for copyright and other violations by those services. Promote warez. Post links to copyright material on file sharing or other services that are not regarded as reputable public operations that take full responsibility for material on their servers.
Discuss "adult" related issues Allow the posting of pornographic material or links
You can be "attacked" by guests or members posting material that contravenes our terms and condtions. But you must delete such posts in a timely manner and deal with any member deemed responsible. Ignore your responsibility to keep your forum operating within the terms and conditions
Discuss controversial political issues Run a "hate" site. Racism, Homophobia, Religious hate, will not be tolerated. We include "self hate" in this definition. Which means for example whilst a site that believes in the legalisation of recreational drugs would be tolerated for the sake of free speech, a site that encourages anorexia which is self harm and therefore self hatred would not be allowed.
Occasionally mass email your members You may not spam members with frequent emails, or otherwise promote your forum via mass spam emailing, or any other form of spamming.
Run coupon swapping schemes, promote business ideas and franchises. You may not run anything resembling a pyramid scheme, timeshare scam etc. If money is changing hands, the ethics must be convincing!
Discuss addons for online computer games. Run a site where the aim is not to improve everyones enjoyment of the game, but to cheat and thus ruin the game for legitimate players. e.g. an add on that provides a short cut key to get to a weapon would almost certainly be okay, a "speed hack" is simply lame cheating and is not okay.
 Freely advertise other sites.
 Accept paid advertising without the approval of ourselves, as paid advertising is likely to conflict with the advertising that supports the forum.

If our terms and conditions are broken, we reserve the right to remove forums without warning or discussion. But we will only do this if we believe reasonable discussion would be pointless.

If an active forum has been abandoned by an owner, then we reserve the right after reasonable attempts to contact the owner have been taken, to transfer the ownership of a forum according to the wishes of the active forum members.

 

As forum owner you have full legal responsibility for the content of your forum. myfreeforum.org is simply acting as host.

We reserve the right to change these terms and conditions

Privacy Policy>

The privacy of our visitorsis important to us.

We recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit our sites, and how we safeguard your information. We never sell your personal information to third parties.

Log Files

As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.

Cookies and Web Beacons We do use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could include only showing you a popup once in your visit, or the ability to login to some of our features, such as forums.

We also use third party advertisements to support our sites. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

DoubleClick DART cookies

We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx

You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
