FORUM TERMS AND RULES
Please take a moment to review these rules detailed below. If you agree with them and wish to proceed with the registration, simply click the "Register" button below. To cancel this registration, simply hit the 'back' button on your browser. You will receive a verification email with instructions on finalizing your registration. Please note that some popular free email services cannot be used to register as they can generate hundreds of spammer registrations each week. As it is, we review and process so many registration requests each week that it can take a few days or more to get to them, so please be patient.
Please remember that neither U.S. Militaria Forum or its owners/operators are responsible for any messages or images 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 ONLY and not the views of this bulletin board.
Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact the administration or moderators immediately by email or via the private message system. 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 this bulletin board to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law.
You agree NOT to post any copyrighted material (including but not limited to text and images) unless the copyright is (1) owned by you, (2) owned by this bulletin board, or (3) you have received express permission from the copyright owner to post the material. The exception is that under the United States Fair Use doctrine, you are allowed to use excerpts from copyrighted materials: this might include quoting a few paragraphs from an article or book or using one or two photos from an article, book or other collection of photos.
POSTING AND UPLOADING PHOTOS:
Photos that are uploaded as attachments may be cropped or re-sized in order to make them easier for users to view and to save server space.
By posting images in a message, you give the forum the right to copy the images to the U.S. Militaria Forum's server.
SUSPENSION OF PRIVATE MESSAGE OR POSTING CAPABILITY:
Posting messages or using the private message system is a privilege of membership and not a right.
Any member's access to posting, private messaging, or any other privileges of membership may be suspended for any time period at the discretion of the U.S. Militaria Forum, particularly if the member behaves inappropriately or acts in direct violation of the U.S. Militaria Forum Code of Conduct.
DELETION / SUSPENSION OF MEMBERS:
Being a member of the U.S. Militaria Forum is a privilege and not a right.
While U.S. Militaria Forum is strongly against the suspension and removal of members, the U.S. Militaria Forum and its owners/operators reserve the right to suspend or remove (without providing the user a warning or a reason) any member account for any reason, including (but not limited to) instances where the member behaves inappropriately, acts in violation of the U.S. Militaria Forum Code of Conduct, and/or registers for a second account.
And, by signing up for a membership, all members agree that, in the event their accounts should be banned or suspended, these bannings and suspensions may be (and normally will be) made public.
DELETION OF POSTS AND PICTURES:
Anyone making a post agrees that the information in that post will remain posted in perpetuity, at the Forum's discretion.
The U.S. Militaria Forum has a policy against the deletion of posts and/or pictures. However, the U.S. Militaria Forum reserves the right to remove (without providing the user a warning or a reason) any content that is inappropriate, questionable, or in violation of the U.S. Militaria Forum Code of Conduct.
U.S. Militaria Forum and its owners/operators have a policy of not releasing registration information openly to third parties. Typically, if a third party contacts the U.S. Militaria Forum with a message for a member, the member will privately be forwarded that message via email or the private message system. The third party will not be given the member's email address unless the member expressly gives permission prior to that time.
The U.S. Militaria Forum and its owners/operators are NOT responsible for any problems, repercussions, or damages that may result from any member's disclosure of their own or others' personal information, including information that is posted on the U.S. Militaria Forum or information that is posted elsewhere online (such as in public records) and then used on the U.S. Militaria Forum.
Please be aware that any personal information (such as name, username, IP address, email address, address, phone number, location, etc.) provided to you and by you in private messages, emails through the board, posts, and any other method using the U.S. Militaria Forum software and server will be released to law enforcement upon request of a valid law enforcement officer.
