Terms and conditions (T&C) and privacy statement

Site Rules

Registration to this site and forums is free. We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below. When you register, you agree to these terms, and to future changes in the terms and conditions. These changes may or may not be advertised.

If you would like to cancel your registration, use the contact form to let us know.

The administrators and moderators will attempt to keep all objectionable messages and replies off the forum. All messages express the views of the author, and Irish Pink Adoptions will not be held responsible for the content of any message.

By posting content on the site, you agree that the site has the right to re-use the content in any manner, way or form, in the present or the future. In other words you grant the site copyright and intellectual property on the content.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violate of any laws.

Any form of intolerance will be sanctioned. You know the nine grounds of discrimination, there will be  a zero tolerance to intolerance.

Violation of these rules, especially as regards the legal grounds of discrimination, will result in the material being deleted without warning, to your account to be closed, and to you being banned from registering again.

The owners of Irish Pink Adoptions reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread/reply for any reason & and to suspend or ban any user account for any reason.

Please do not register an account on Irish Pink Adoptions just to promote yourself, your website, your company or your products, this will simply annoy and alienate the users and will most likely result in your posts being removed and your user account being suspend/banned.

Privacy rules

We recommend that you do not register with your real name or your email address.

It is not advised to use your actual name, give too many details that could identify a specific adoption process.

So when you testify, use nicknames, especially for children’s names!

Also posting pictures is not encouraged, and is even strictly forbidden if there are minors involved.

The information you provide upon registration will not be used for commercial purpose, and you remain free to access it and modify it at any stage. It will only be kept for the time and the purpose that it is needed for. The information from your public profile will be public. Make sure it dos not contain anything that would allow to identify you easily. Same thing for your forum posts, and your replies.

Please note that we may decline to delete an account due to the disruption it can cause to conversations and that we may decline to delete posts or threads on request.We will try and make the necessary changes to protect your privacy, but without destroying the content which might be of interest to the community.
For instance we may make a reply invisible to others, but not delete it.

Moderation rules

These rules are valid throughout the site, especially in replies/comments and forums.
Moderation rules will be written as we go bye, but here are some basics:
People are entitled to know what is made of their contribution, even the obviously abusive one.

Rule 1: Outing others is the only sin that cannot be forgiven.
Rule 2: There will be a zero tolerance to intolerance. The 9 grounds of discrimination cannot be ground for inappropriate/offensive “humor”, which always hides a level of intolerance.
Rule 3: Races do not exist. Racism does. It will not be entertained.
Rule 4: No spamming, commercial or otherwise, including trolling. No malicious duplicate accounts or stalking of other members.
Rule 5: Do not publish private communications/exchanges. Privacy is paramount.
Rule 6: Report your concerns to the Administrators directly, by internal messages. Do not bring feud on the forums or in comments.
Rule 7: Do not post illegitimate content: illegal content, pictures of other people, pictures of children, picture of an adult nature, other objectionable content. 

Finally

Finally all will be judged by the spirit of the law, not by the word of it…
