TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE FOR THE NANPA FORUMS
Registration to this forum is free! We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed
below. If you agree to the terms, please check the 'I agree' checkbox and press the 'Register' button below.
The forums located on the NANPA.ORG web site are the property of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA). By using the forums you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. Please read them carefully and be sure you understand them before using the forums.
Despite efforts to provide useful and accurate information, errors may appear from time to time. Before you act on information that you have found on the forums, you should confirm any facts that are important to your decision. NANPA is not responsible for, and cannot guarantee the performance or safety of, goods services or methods recommended by others. We do not endorse or guarantee the accuracy of any posting, regardless of whether the posting comes from a user, from a celebrity or "expert" guest, or from a member of our staff. NANPA is not responsible for any loss or damage that you may incur, directly or indirectly, as a result of your use of information that appears on the NANPA website.
Access to some of the NANPA forums is ONLY for current members of NANPA. Access is based on your agreement to abide by the Terms and Conditions of use as set forth in this document. You will be automatically notified of any changes and your continued use of the forum signifies your agreement to the changes. You agree not to provide your access codes to anyone else. NANPA encourages free and open discussions on its forums but also encourages responsible and considered statements. We therefore will not use "Screen Names" and will instead use your name as found on your NANPA registration to identify you as the poster of a message. Other forums are public, and posts made once registered. There will be forums that are password protected and will have very limited access.
NANPA is not responsible for the content of any message. Messages express the views of the author and not necessarily NANPA. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact a moderator immediately by email. The names of monitors will be posted prominently in the member forum areas. You agree not to post any injurious, defamatory, abusive, obscene, threatening, illegal, knowingly false or inaccurate, vulgar, hateful, harassing, sexually objectionable, invasive of a person's privacy or any other material that infringes on the ability of others to enjoy the forum or that infringes on the rights of others. We retain the right to deny access to anyone who we believe has violated these terms or any other term of this agreement. NANPA reserves the right (but assumes no obligation) to delete, move, or edit any postings that we consider unacceptable or inappropriate.
You retain the copyright to any material you submit to any of our forums. However, by submitting the material you grant NANPA a perpetual non-exclusive world-wide royalty-free license to maintain the material on the NANPA web site (NANPA.ORG).
VI. Intellectual Property Rights:
You will not use the forums to violate anyone's copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights. By submitting material, you are representing and warranting that you are the owner of the material, or are making your submission with the express consent of the owner, that the material will not violate any statutory or other copyright or any other right of third parties (including right of privacy), or be libelous or obscene, or in any way illegal, and that any recipe, formula, instruction or other matter contained in the material is not injurious to the user.
VII. Personal Information:
We use the information supplied by you from your NANPA membership for access to the Members Only section of the web site. Only that portion of your information, other than your name, which you wish to make public will be made available to other members of the forums.
VIII. No Soliciting or Spamming:
You agree not to use the forums to advertise products or services or to solicit anyone to buy or sell products or services, or to make donations of any kind, except in forums that me be established expressly for that purpose. You agree not to gather email addresses for purposes of spamming or for any non-personal or commercial purposes.
Messages may contain links to other web sites. Because NANPA has no control over these sites, you acknowledge that your use of these sites is at your own risk and that NANPA is not responsible or liable for any damage or loss you may incur, directly or indirectly, in connection with products or services available on Third Party Sites, nor for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, decency or other aspect of these sites.
You agree to indemnify and hold NANPA, its officers, directors, employees and volunteers who maintain NANPA's internet presence harmless from any and all claims, demands or other liabilities, including legal fees and costs, that are made by any third party due to or arising from your use of the Web Site or your breach of these Terms and Conditions.
Although the administrators and moderators of NANPA - Nature Photography Forums will attempt to keep all objectionable
messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of
the author, and neither the owners of NANPA - Nature Photography Forums, nor vBulletin Solutions, Inc. (developers of vBulletin)
will be held responsible for the content of any message.
By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar,
sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.
The owners of NANPA - Nature Photography Forums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.
