Bulletin Board Rules and Terms of Use

In view of 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 HomeTheaterEquipment.com do not actively monitor or moderate the contents of the forum 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 Luxury Publishing Group, Inc. or any entity associated with Luxury Publishing Group, Inc. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. We have the ability to edit or remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that editing or 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.

You, the user, expressly agree, through your use of this bulletin board, that you will not use HomeTheaterEquipment.com to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory (of products or other Members), inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, sexual, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violative of any law. Discussion of illegal activities such as software and intellectual property piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.

All posts must be in English.

You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by Luxury Publishing Group, Inc. or you have valid, written permission from the true and legitimate copyright holder(s) to use such material in this manner.

Although HomeTheaterEquipment.com does not and cannot review the messages posted and is not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we at HomeTheaterEquipment.com, reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. Also while these Terms Of Use cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure that this forum is not disrupted or abused in any way. Any abuses of these Terms of Use may subject your post to being edited or deleted at our discretion without warning or explanation and membership can be subject to revocation.

You assume sole legal responsibility for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless HomeTheaterEquipment.com, Luxury Publishing Group Inc., vBulletin Solutions (the makers of the bulletin board software), and their agents with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s). You also expressly agree that any claims of personal ownership of information, from any content posted, that HomeTheaterEquipment.com and Luxury Publishing Group, Inc. has the right to use such information, now and in the future, as they see fit and you release any intellectual property rights or compensation to such material. We at this HomeTheaterEquipment.com also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) during the course of a claim, complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.

Please note that advertisements or commercial solicitations of ANY kind are strictly prohibited unless given express permission to do so by management of HomeTheaterEquipment.com. Chain letters, spam, pyramid schemes, coupon schemes, referrals to other Forums of a similar nature (to promote those forums) and other types of solicitations are inappropriate and prohibited on HomeTheaterEquipment.com and this forum. While some referrals to other forums or sites are allowed for the purposes crediting a source, we reserve the right to suspend a membership if we feel such referrals are only being done to promote other forums in an attempt to damage this forum or to simply avoid the posting of information or answering a question that was put forth on this forum.

Discussions or inducements for Members to purchase from Dealers and Merchants, either Authorized or Unauthorized are also prohibited, since the validity of such dealers and the person or persons making the referral can not be determined. Sponsors of this forum are the only exception. Calibrators must also get permission to post their services on this forum and agree to our advertising and referral schedule in advance. HomeTheaterEquipment.com may contain links to third party Sponsor web sites. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by HomeTheaterEquipment.com of the contents on such third-party Sponsor web sites. HomeTheaterEquipment.com and Luxury Publishing Group, Inc. are not responsible for the content of linked third-party Sponsor web sites and do not make any representations regarding the content or accuracy of material on such third party Sponsor web sites. If you decide to access linked third-party Sponsor web sites, you do so at your own risk.

Please also note that the use of the HomeTheaterEquipment.com’s Private Messaging Service or Email Systems associated with HomeTheaterEquipment.com are not “private” in the sense that it is a message or Email seen only by the sender and receiver. While the message is private from the rest of the Members, the administration of HomeTheaterEquipment.com can see them. All rules that apply to posting on the Forum ALSO apply to the use of our Private Messaging/Email System and violators will have their posting privileges subject to the same revocations as on the Forum in general. Posting privileges if we feel need to be revoked may be done with no prior warning and are not subject to redress. If you have any questions about something possibly being a violation ask the Administration FIRST if it is OK to post it. This way you won't be unpleasantly surprised when you come back not have access any longer.

Terms Of Use are subject to change without notice and you agree to abide by any future changes in Terms Of Use should they occur.
