Step 1: Forum Agreement
|***READ THIS ENTIRE AGREEMENT!!*** Members must adhere to the rules and regulations of the board set herein.
All members are to be courteous and respectful to others within reason. Typical taunting, teasing and joking will be gladly accepted, however cruel, demeaning, threatening or obscene remarks will not be tolerated. NEDB will not tollerate blatent misuse of resources such as utilizing the forums as personal message boards. Discussions will be moderated by NEDB to be meaningful and contributing under the judgement of the administrators and moderators. Language must also be kept within reason. Moderators will remove posts which contain material that is not appropriate. Also, discretion is to be used when attempting to circumvent our censoring system. Any attempt to do so may be edited by our Administrators or Moderators. Whenever an Administrator or Moderator makes a change to a member posting, "****" will appear in the affected post. Repeat offenders to any of NEDB's rules set herein will have action taken against accounts at the discretion of the forum Moderators. Anyone caught purposely defacing or "hacking" this board will be turned over to the appropriate law enforcement agency(s). Any discussions regarding unlawful use of land (areas which are not 100% legal and legitimate) will be edited for content or removed completely by discretion of an Admin or Moderator!
Members may post mechanical tips and may sell items through the 'Classifieds' forum, however, if promoting a business sales posts will not be allowed - this excludes NEDB Sponsors. This helps maintain equality for our current sponsors. For information on how to sponsor our site please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you all of the information. It is much cheaper than you think!
This board operates 24/7, however, there may be times when it is inaccessible. The administrators will use these times to perform upgrades, modifications and improvements. We thank you for your patience during these periods.
New England Dirt Bikes Inc, nedirtbikes.com, NEDB is a non-profit business. However, any information obtained on this board is strictly for entertainment purposes. All visitors and members are advised to use their best judgment in taking advice from any of the information obtained from this website. In addition, the members, Administrators and Moderators of this board are not responsible for what you do with any information obtained on this site. We assume no liability whatsoever for anything said or implied on the site. Members of NEDB are fully responsible for their own comments, suggestions and actions. All members participate at their own risk.
Members are asked to avoid using multiple accounts. One account per person please. This eliminates confusion when other members are directing posts towards you. If a duplicate account is detected in your name, the older(est) of the account(s) will be deleted.
Members are encouraged not to "repeat post". For example, a post in Forum "A" and an identical or topically similar post in Forum "B". Also, "Star" or "Ranking Campers" will have posts removed. A "Ranking Camper" is a member who posts nonsense posts in order to improve their member rank on the board.
Law enforcement agents of any type attempting to gain information regarding members of this message board, must willfully state so and will not fail to disclose or keep secret their identity or agency affiliation.
Members are asked to keep their profile as up to date and accurate as possible. Inaccurate information causes problems, especially when other members try to send you messages or direct posts to you.
This site may contain links to other web sites and files. We have no control over the content and can not ensure it will not be offensive or objectionable. We will, however, remove links to material that we feel is inappropriate as we become aware of them.
Your privacy is one of our top priorities. The following policy applies only to the use of the NEDB's Web site. Other Web sites operated by off-site links have different policies. We strongly suggest that you read the privacy policies for each web site that you visit through a link appearing at this site.
A Privacy Partnership. Your privacy with respect to the use of this Web site results from a partnership between the NEDB and you, the user. At this Web site, we attempt to protect your privacy to the maximum extent possible. This policy informs you of the information that we collect from you at this site, what we do with it, to whom it may be disseminated, and how you can access it. Based on this information, you can make an informed choice about your use of this site. You can maximize the benefits of your privacy partnership with NEDB by making informed choices about whether to share personally identifiable information with us through this site.
Personally Identifiable Information. We use the term "personally identifiable information" to mean any information that could reasonably be used to identify you, including your name, address, e-mail address, Social Security number, birth date, bank account information, credit card information, or any combination of information that could be used to identify you.
Information Voluntarily Provided by You. Certain pages within our site use on-line forms. Each of these forms is used only to provide a specific service to you, the user. Personal information collected by these forms usually request your name, e-mail address, and questions or comments, but may include other information when needed to provide a service you have requested (For example: NEDB "Products Page"). In contrast, your "User Profile" contains information that is shared with all NEDB Members. Please use care when filling in this information to maximize your privacy.
All information that you provide to us that is not part of your member profile is processed by the form and then is submitted to us in e-mail format. The information is sent ONLY to NEDB Administrators or Moderators who require the information to provide the service that has been requested. NEDB does not maintain your personal information on record, and will not disclose this information to any other person(s) or organizations unless required to by law.
Information Automatically Collected and Stored by this Site. This site uses "cookies", and collects and stores indefinitely your Internet Protocol ("IP") address (which does not identify you as an individual) as well as information about the date and time of your visit, whether a file you have requested exists, and how many "bytes" of information were transmitted to you over the Web from this site. We use your IP address to assess the frequency of visits to this site and the popularity of its various pages and functions. We will not attempt to match any personally identifiable information that you provide to us with your IP address, unless there are reasonable grounds to believe that doing so would provide information that is relevant and material to a criminal investigation.
Dissemination of Your Personally Identifiable Information. We do not sell any personally identifiable information collected through this Web site. However, we may use your provided e-mail address to send out e-mails to our members regarding changes or updates to our system.
In addition, the information that you voluntarily submit will be disclosed only to NEDB Administrators and Moderators with a "need to know" for purposes of fulfilling their job responsibilities. They will only use the information to answer your questions, respond to any requests for assistance, and fulfill NEDB's legal obligations. In addition, any information you provide on your "Member Profile" will be available to all other NEDB Members. Where appropriate, we may provide the information submitted by you to any government agency responsible for any legal investigations.
Your Access and Opportunity to Correct. The Public Records Law and the Fair Information Practices Act provide you certain rights to get information about you that is in our records. To learn more about the circumstances under which you can get and correct this information, please click on the above references to these laws.
Security. Because this site does not encrypt incoming e-mail, you should not send information that you consider highly sensitive through this Web site. We use standard security measures to ensure that your personally identifiable information is not lost, misused, altered, or unintentionally destroyed. We also use software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits.
Contact Information. For questions about your privacy while using this Web site, please contact Admin@nedirtbikes.com
IP Address: An "Internet Protocol Address" or "IP Address" is a series of numbers that identifies each computer and machine connected to the Internet. An IP address enables a server on a computer network to send you the file that you have requested on the Internet. The IP address disclosed to us may identify the computer from which you are accessing the Internet, or a server owned by your Internet Service Provider. Because it is machine-specific, rather than person-specific, an IP address is not, in and of itself, personally identifiable information.
