I thought I would post these here just for reference...

Forum Terms of Use/User Agreement

CeramicArtsNetwork.org and its related forums are owned by The American Ceramic Society, a non-profit organization founded in 1898 and headquartered in Westerville, Ohio. The Society reserves the right to change the Terms of Use/User Agreement at any time. The changes will appear in this section. By using these forums you agree in advance to accept all changes.

Please note: New members may require moderator approval to post for the first 24 hours due to our Spam Defense system. Our moderator team does its best to approve new posts in a timely fashion.

The spirit and intention of this forum is to facilitate the free exchange of information. The minimum age to post content on this forum is 16 years of age.
All information is presented as is, and your reliance on any information presented on this site or its forums is at your own risk. Although the American Ceramic Society may monitor discussions, postings and other user generated content from time to time, we are under no obligation to review material on the web site, and you agree to hold us harmless from any actions based on content that you post or read on these sites.

The content of this site and its forums is for private, non-commercial use only. No advertising of products or services is permitted, and any content deemed inappropriate will be edited and/or removed by the site administrators and moderators at their sole discretion. Advertisements may be placed in the Ceramic Arts Network Classifieds. Links to personal websites or social media accounts may be put in a member's signature or on their profile page, but not within the body of a post. Employers may post job openings or professional development opportunities in the "Employment and Professional Development Opportunities" section. Posts by individuals seeking employment are not permitted on the forum.

Messages express the views of the author of the message, not the views of these forums or The Ceramic Arts Network or The American Ceramic Society. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to report that post using the "report" button included on each post. Reported content will be reviewed by moderators and/or admin. Replies to members may be made by moderators/admin if required. Anonymous reports will be reviewed but not replied to. 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.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use these forums to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, religious, racially charged, political, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law. Violations of the Terms of Use will be dealt with up to and including a permanent ban of the member in violation.

The moderators are an integral part of the forum as they guard from spam, manage posts, and moderate the tone of posts on the forum. In doing so they may have to issue warnings to the general forum about constructive tone, or to individuals via personal message(s) to temper the tone of their post(s). Continued warnings to an individual to temper their tone or content for non constructive or abusive posts may lead to temporary or permanent banning from the forum. 

You agree not to post any copyrighted material to these forums unless the copyright is owned by you or by these forums. If you post images of artwork that is not your own, you agree to credit the artist who created the artwork.

These Terms of Use and User Agreement, and any disputes arising out of or related to these forums and related sites, shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Ohio.
