The providers ("we", "us", "our") of the service provided by this web site ("Service") are not responsible for any user-generated content and accounts ("Content"). Content submitted express the views of their author only.

You agree to not use the Service to submit or link to any Content which is defamatory, abusive, hateful, threatening, spam or spam-like, likely to offend, contains adult or objectionable content, contains personal information of others, risks copyright infringement, encourages unlawful activity, or otherwise violates any laws.

All Content you submit or upload may be reviewed by staff members. All Content you submit or upload may be sent to third-party verification services (including, but not limited to, spam prevention services). Do not submit any Content that you consider to be private or confidential.

We reserve the rights to remove or modify any Content submitted for any reason without explanation. Requests for Content to be removed or modified will be undertaken only at our discretion. We reserve the right to take action against any account with the Service at any time.

Moderation Guidelines:

Our first priority at Gardening Forums is to ensure that friendly discussion can flow freely on the site. However, there are times that moderators and administrators may have to step in and lock a topic, remove/edit content, or even ban a member in extreme circumstances. We have a zero tolerance policy on spam, and aim to remove it as quickly as possible.

Unacceptable content includes:

  • Spam
  • Pornography
  • Trolling
  • Personal Attacks
  • Profanity

Other content (out of the scope) of this list may be deemed unacceptable at the discretion of the administrators/moderators and may be removed.

Separate to obvious spam content, we would ask that members refrain from posting repeated links to their own websites/blogs/social-media. If there is particular relevancy in posting your link and it is only occasional, then that is perfectly acceptable - however self-promotion is not.
