Code of Conduct

Tolerance to other members

Please bear in mind that due to the nature of the site, there may be material (including text and images) that you find offensive, or unsuitable for minors. We encourage and expect all members to use due discretion, tolerance and understanding on this site. Any form of bullying or intimidation towards other members will not be tolerated.

Advertising

Skincell generally accept advertisments, however each case will be assessed by the site administrator. All advertisments are subject to the following conditions.

A single advertisement in the "Advertisements and Surveys" board is permitted. Multiple postings advertising the same product are not permitted. Postings outside the "Advertisements and Surveys" board are not permitted. All advertisments must be created by a company representation profile, and such a profile must contain contact information for the company, and a link to their website. Advertisements must clearly state what they are advertising, and must not contain hidden links, or any other forms of deceptive text. All advertisements will be reviewed by the site administrator, and any advertisements deemed unacceptable will be removed without warning.

Prohibited Material

At Skincell, we have a zero tolerance policy on spam, chain letters, pyramid schemes and pornography. Please be aware that any members posting such material, or any other material deemed offensive by the site administrator will be banned immediately, and the material removed. Also, at the site administrator's discretion, your IP address will be traced and a report made to the relevant authorities and your ISP.

Copyrighted Material

Please do not post copyrighted material unless you are the copyright owner or you have written permission to post such material. Should you wish, you can link to other articles on the internet.

Surveys

If you wish to carry out a survey of Skincell members, please contact the Site Administrator. Any surveys must be posted on the "Advertisements and Surveys" board. All surveys must be created by a special representation profile that includes contact information and company links (where appropriate). Any surveys posted elsewhere on the forum, or without prior permission will be removed without warning.

Validity and Moderation

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.

Responsibility and Ownership

You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.

By posting material on this forum, you agree to release any such material into the public domain. Should your account be terminated for whatever reason, the decision to keep or remove any material you have posted is that of the forum staff alone. Unless there are any extenuating circumstances, all messages will be kept to preserve continuity of threads on the forum.

Your Identity

You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason.  We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

You will have the option to hide or show your email address during registration. If you choose to hide your e-mail, it remains visible to yourself and forum staff only. If you choose to show your email address, it will be visible to all other registered members of the forum only. We do not allow email addresses stored in profiles to be shown to the public. Also, since the forum posts are available to the general public, we do not allow email addresses to be shown in posts on the forum. Any email addresses, or other contact details in posts will be removed. If you need to contact another forum member, please use the PM facility available on all members profiles.

After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information.
