A. Use of Forums

You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws.

Failure to comply with BCGA’s Acceptable Use of Forums policy may result in action from the Board of Directors to suspend the website user’s account in the Society’s website. The normal process will be to remove the content from the website and warn the website userthat further breaches of acceptable use may result in suspending the account. In the event that the account is suspended, the account will be suspended for a minimum of one year, at the discretion of the Directors, depending on the severity of the breach. The website user may apply in writing after one year to have his/her account reinstated.

B. Use of Website

Any attempt by a website user to deliberately attempt unauthorized access to the website or any of its modules for the purpose of viewing or altering any records or data stored therein will result in the immediate and perman ent ban of the user from retaining an account on the website. The suspended website user may submit an appeal in writing to the directors for consideration. After review the Directors decision is final. Directors may also choose to inform your service prov ider of inappropriate use of the Society’s website. The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions.
