3.3.10. disrupt the normal flow of dialogue, cause a screen to ‘scroll’ faster than other users of the forums are able to type, or otherwise act in a manner that negatively affects other users’ ability to engage in real time exchanges; or
3.3.11. violate any applicable national or international laws or regulations.
3.4 You acknowledge that we do not pre-screen content but that we shall have the right (though not the obligation) in our sole discretion to move, modify or remove any content that is available on or via any forum or our site generally.
You grant to us a worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, non-exclusive licence (including the right to sub-license) to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform or display any content (in whole or part) you upload, post or email and/or to incorporate such content in other works in any form, media or technology now known or developed.
You agree to indemnify and hold us and our subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, officers, agents or partners harmless from and against any direct or indirect loss or damage (including consequential loss and loss of profits, goodwill or business opportunities) arising from any third party claim in relation to any content you upload, post or email on or through our forums or our site, your use of the forums and our site, or your breach of the provisions of these rules.
6.2. On being made aware of any such breaches, we may ban, delete or prohibit any content that relates to those breaches or that we judge harmful to individuals or the rights of (operator) or any of our affiliates, licensors or partners.
6.3. We reserve the right to take whatever action we deem necessary to prevent such breaches including the following:
6.3.1. breaches we deem minor may result simply in receipt of a warning from (address); or
6.3.2. breaches we deem serious may result in your automatic ban from our forum and our site generally.
All incidents will be logged and our decision is final in all such cases.
