AVS Forum Rules
(condensed rules - for complete listing, click here
Considering the real-time nature of this bulletin board, it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that we at AVS Forum do not actively monitor the contents of this board at all times and are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this forum or any entity associated with this forum. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to report such posts by using the report post button or sending a PM to a moderator. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.
Although this forum does not and cannot review the messages posted and is not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we at this forum reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless this AV Science Forum, Jelsoft Enterprises Limited (developers of vBulletin), and their agents with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).
The AVS Forums are designed for members to express their opinions, viewpoints and testimonials on various products, services and events based upon speculation, personal knowledge and factual information through use, therefore all views represented here allow no liability upon the publishers of this web site and the owners of said views assume no liability for any ill will resulting from these postings. The posts made here are for educational as well as entertainment purposes and as such anyone viewing this portion of the website must accept these views as statements of the author of that opinion and agrees to release the authors from any and all liability.
All information, 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 such Content originated. This means that you, and not AVS FORUM, are entirely responsible for all Content that you upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available via the Service. AVS FORUM does not control the Content posted via the Service and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. You understand that by using the Service, you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable. Under no circumstances will AVS FORUM be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, for any errors or omissions in any Content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available via the Service.MEMBER CONDUCT
You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violate of any law. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this forum.
You agree to not use the Service to:
a. upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any Content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable. AVS Forum is not the place for debate on religion, sex, politics, or other such controversial posts; and this is not the place to talk about illegal downloads or how to obtain them. There are several forums on the Internet dedicated for discussing this type of material. This is not one of them.
b. impersonate any person or entity, including, but not limited to, a AVS FORUM official, forum leader, guide or host, or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity;
c. upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any Content that you do not have a right to make available under any law or under contractual or fiduciary relationships (such as inside information, proprietary and confidential information learned or disclosed as part of employment relationships or under nondisclosure agreements);
d. upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising
e. either advertise or promote commercial endeavors without permission from an AVS Administrator. This includes direct posts as well as active links to other sites on the Internet. Direct all such requests via e-mail to an AVS Board Administrator.
Special Note to dealers, re-sellers, or any person or company that deals in equipment or products for sale: You are not allowed to post items for sale on the forums. AV Science is the only dealer/re-seller allowed to post items for sale inside the forum or promote manufacture items. If you need promotion services, this forum offers banner advertising. This also holds true for individuals looking to sell used gear or "special deals" that may have. This is further carried into the forum signatures and the private message feature.
AVS Forum staff and its volunteer moderators have the final say when it comes to post removals or edits. We make every effort to reach an understanding when dealing with posts that need to be removed or edited. If you have an issue with a volunteer moderator, or a choice made by them, you are asked to bring it to a site administrators attention to look into and handle. THE SITE ADMINISTRATORS and OWNERS have the final say. Please respect that the volunteer moderators are just that, volunteers. They give their time to help make AVS Forum sites a great place to visit.CONTENT
You acknowledge that AVS FORUM does not pre-screen Content, but that AVS FORUM and its designees shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to refuse or move any content that is available via the Service.

In this regard, you acknowledge that you may not rely on any Content created by AVS FORUM or submitted to AVS FORUM, such as information in AVS FORUM Message Boards.
You acknowledge and agree that AVS FORUM may preserve Content and may also disclose Content if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process; (b) enforce the TOS; (c) respond to claims that any Content violates the rights of third-parties; or (d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of AVS FORUM, its users and the public.

This license exists only for as long as you elect to continue to include such Content on the Service and will terminate at the time you remove or AVS FORUM removes such Content from the Service.
With respect to Content other than photos, graphics, audio or video you submit or make available for inclusion on publicly accessible areas of the Service, the perpetual, irrevocable and fully sublicensable license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform and publicly display such Content (in whole or in part) and to incorporate such Content into other works in any format or medium now known or later developed.

You agree that AVS FORUM, in its sole discretion, may terminate your password, account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service, and remove and discard any Content within the Service, for any reason, including, without limitation, for lack of use or if AVS FORUM believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of the TOS. AVS FORUM may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of this TOS may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that AVS FORUM may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to such files or the Service. Further, you agree that AVS FORUM shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any termination of your access to the Service.
