<b>Abrazo Forum Terms & Rules</b>
THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND RULES GOVERN USE OF THE ABRAZO FORUM. YOU MUST AGREE TO THESE CONDITIONS IF YOU WISH TO CONTINUE WITH YOUR REGISTRATION.
The Abrazo Forum is a free feature designed for the use of Abrazo Adoption Associates' friends, supporters and clients in good standing; membership is a privilege voluntarily bestowed by Abrazo and not a right, nor a service for which fees are required. Any approved and registered member is welcome to browse the forums and read the posts. However, please remember that Abrazo cannot and does not warrant the accuracy, efficacy, validity or safety of any message, link or attachment, and is not responsible for the contents nor effects of any posted information. The decision to use (or not use) the Forum and/or information contained therein is likewise voluntary on the part of the user(s) and the user(s) hereby acknowledges Abrazo's nonliability for any effects (whether real or imagined) of the user's Forum membership and forfeits any future claim(s) related to same.
The messages posted within express the views of each writer, and not necessarily the views of Abrazo Adoption Associates or our Forum community as a whole. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately, either by clicking the "Report" button beneath the post, or by email. Abrazo reserves the right to remove objectionable messages and will do so within a reasonable time frame if we determine that censorship is necessary. (See also "Forum Guidelines.")
While intended for the private use of the Abrazo adoption community, it is important to note that all information contained within postings is accessible to the public; care should therefore be taken in discerning what personal information one chooses to make public via the Internet, as any consequences are the responsibility of the posting party, regardless of age. The Forum contains adult subject matter and may not be appropriate for children without adult supervision. Abrazo cannot warrantee the safety, privacy nor security of anyone who uses the Forum, whether or not they elect to disclose identifying information, nor can Abrazo be responsible for the re-release of such information elsewhere, as these are risks assumed solely by each user, in electing to participate.
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, solicitious, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, inflammatory, obscene, pornographic, profane, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law. While Abrazo encourages active dialogue, including complaints, concerns, and criticisms, we reserve the right to remove posts which violate our broad terms of acceptibility. The Forum administrators will be the final arbiters of the inappropriateness of any post. Likewise, you agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you are the owner of that copyright and you alone accept any and all liability for use of same.
Abrazo's Forum is not intended to contribute to the facilitation of private adoptions and members are strictly prohibited from contacting parties on the Forum for the purpose of soliciting or initiating private placement plans as well as any other arrangements and/or proposals that run counter to Abrazo's interests. Discovery of such efforts shall constitute grounds for termination of Forum membership.
Thanks for reading this, and enjoy the community!
