Play by the Rules

Want to be a Teen Blogger for Expect Respect?
Just like any blog, we have a few rules.

 

1. WE CAN USE YOUR POSTINGS
You authorize us to use your Post, in whole or in part, throughout the universe, in perpetuity in or on any and all media, now known or hereafter discovered or developed, alone or together, in compilations or combinations, as part of other Content of any kind or nature and in any manner of our choosing, without notice or attribution. You have no right to require and we have no obligation to pay any fees, charges or royalties for our use or exploitation of your Post and we reserve the right to delete your Posting at any time and in any manner we choose.
  

2. DON’T POST PERSONAL INFORMATION
You should never Post Personal Information because, as we note above, anything you Post or that is Posted may be seen and obtained by others and is or may become publicly available. Postings on this Website may appear on other websites or when someone uses search technology looking for subjects related to or about a Posting. Never assume what you Post will be kept confidential or that other users or third parties will not be able to see or obtain access to your Posts. Neither you nor we can control who may see or obtain Posts. Nor do we control or know what they may do with Postings or for what purpose they may be used. While we ask you not to Post or share Personal Information, if you decide to do so anyway, we urge you to exercise discretion and caution, because you should always assume Personal Information you Post is and will become publicly available and you Post Personal Information at your own risk.  We should also point out that no communications, especially those over the Internet and using the facilities of the World Wide Web, including this Website, can be guaranteed to be secure, and at the risk of repetition, you should assume any Personal Information you share, whether by Posting or otherwise, may be seen and read (and possibly used) by others who you do not know and you do not intend to have it or use it.
 

3. IF YOU DON’T WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW, KEEP IT TO YOURSELF
Assume everything you Post will be seen by everyone – on or off this Website. If there is information you wouldn’t share with strangers or that might embarrass you or others, don’t Post it.
 

4. WE AREN’T RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR POSTINGS
We aren’t responsible, liable or accountable for Posts. We reserve the right to monitor, screen or edit user Posts, for a particular reason or for no reason at all, at any time and from time to time in our sole discretion, without notice. We don’t endorse or support any particular opinion, recommendation, information, advice or anything contained in or that might be inferred from a Post. We cannot and do not vouch for or guarantee the accuracy, validity, integrity or quality of any Posting and we cannot ensure that harmful, inaccurate, deceptive, offensive, defamatory, unlawful or otherwise objectionable Postings will not appear on this Website. By providing you and others with the ability to Post, this Website is a passive conduit and we neither undertake nor accept any obligation or liability relating to any Posting or the activities of users.
Don’t send us or Post any original creative ideas, suggestions, information, materials or content of any kind that you wish to maintain as proprietary or confidential, because once you Post or send us anything, subject, of course to our Privacy Policy, we otherwise have an unrestricted right to use it and do anything with it, in any way and for any purpose, without obligation or restriction at all and we have no obligation to pay you or notify you or let anyone know we got it from you.
 

5. USERS CAN DISAGREE
Even though this Website allows you to interact, even if we have the capability to monitor your dealings with others; even if we find out about a dispute you are having with another user or third party, you are solely responsible for your interactions with others. We have no responsibility to monitor, resolve or get involved in any dispute or disagreement you have and although we reserve the right to do so, we don’t undertake or accept any liability, whether we do or not.
 

6. DON’T RELY ON POSTED CONTENT
Content that is Posted on this Website can never replace or substitute for professional financial, medical, legal or other advice from those you know and trust. While we don’t assume our users intentionally Post inaccurate, false or misleading Content, neither we nor you can ever check the qualifications of those who Post, nor is there any way to know if Postings are made for entertainment or other purposes. Certainly, no online user could ever possibly Post Content relevant to your own personal circumstances or situation and you should never rely on any Postings in making decisions or taking or failing to take specific actions, especially those that could have an effect on you or anyone else. If you have specific concerns or circumstances arise in which you need professional financial, medical or other guidance and advice, you should always consult with a trained and qualified specialist.
 

7. DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU SEE, HEAR OR READ
Opinions, advice, statements, offers and information are solely those of the authors or originators and you should NOT rely on them as accurate or truthful – we don’t endorse them or have any responsibility for them. We don’t check Postings and there is no way for you to know (and you may never know) if Postings are for entertainment, information or otherwise.
 

8. DON’T LIE
Be truthful when you Post, but be wary of Postings from others. We want and hope everyone avoids being deceitful, but not everyone plays by the rules.
 

9. IF A POSTING IS OFFENSIVE, SAY SOMETHING
Always report offensive, harassing or other inappropriate Postings. If someone or something is making you uncomfortable in your interactions, report it immediately. Don’t assume someone else will.
 

10. YOUR BEHAVIOR MATTERS
This Website gives you lots of control over what you Post and your online experience. You choose what to Post and share and what to do or not to do in our online environment. What you Post, how you behave and who you interact with has consequences.

11. TERMINATION OF YOUR RIGHTS
If your Posting violates your agreement with us, including our Terms of Use, these or any other Additional Terms that apply, we can take any action permitted under these Terms of Use, at law or in equity. For example, we can: (i) refuse to allow you to Post; (ii) delete or modify your Postings; (iii) revoke your right to use this Website; and/or (iv) use any technological, legal, operational or other means available to enforce our rights.

Those are the basics! Check out the rest of the policies here.
