The website contains material submitted and created by registered users of this site. We exclude all liability for any illegality arising from such material, or any errors, omissions or inaccuracies in such material.

Your Conduct

We encourage active and open debate and expression of ideas amoung our registered members. All that we ask is that it's done in a lawful and civil manner – be it posting on our boards or using our system to email another user directly. Accordingly, you agree to use TweakToday.com for lawful purposes only.

By using this website, you agree to act in accordance with our Community Standards, which form part of these Terms & Conditions.

Prohibited Activities

You may not use, or allow others to use, your membership to:

Moderation

While we can't review all transmissions by our users, we reserves the right to monitor any information transmitted or received through our service. At our sole discretion, and without prior notice, we may at any time review, edit, remove, or otherwise block any material posted on this website or terminate your membership for violating our community guidelines or terms and conditions.

You are responsible for all statements made and acts that occur through the use of your membership and password. Please don't disclose your password to anybody. If your password has been stolen, you must contact us immediately.

If you want to alert moderators to potentially illegal, offensive or otherwise inappropriate content, please "flag" that item of content using the links provided. If you feel that a particular issue is more serious, such as the actions of a serial poster of illegal or offensive content, then please contact admin@tweaktoday.com.

Why moderate?

We have a responsibility to maintain the quality of content which appears on our site. The aim of moderation is not censorship, but ensuring that the content posted to the site remain appropriate, intelligent and lawful.

Can we discuss moderation?

We won't discuss specific situations, cases or decisions in public, because we feel that's inappropriate.

When is content removed?

Comments are removed by moderators if they go against the Community Standards (this document), which every participant on the site is bound by.

What content is removed when it is moderated?

Usually the entire content item is removed when it is moderated, rather that a portion of it being edited. This is appropriate as we cannot be sure we would edit the content in a manner which the author would approve.

My content didn't break any rules – why was it removed?

In some cases, content may have to be removed if it quotes from or refer explicitly to an other content which failed to meet the Community Standards. On other occasions, we may have been instructed to remove content by the authorities or for copyright reasons when we are asked by copyright holders. Wherever possible we endeavour to leave content on the site and attempt to notify users when content is removed. Where possible we will try and prompt users to alter content where it can be rewritten to comply with these standards.

Will you give public notifications and reasons for removing content?

If possible, and appropriate, yes. But this is difficult to do because of the volume of content on the site which may make this an unbearable burden (cost/time).

Do you pre or post moderate?

We reactively or post-moderate nearly all content, which means that comments generally appear on the site before they've been seen by a moderator, meaning that content may appear on the site which may later be removed.

How do we decide what is removed?

Moderators use the Community Standards as the basis for any moderation decision, combined with the context of the conversation, as well as reports and complaints from the community (flagged content). Naturally, we use our judgement and may, on occasion, err on the side of cautious. We are sorry if you feel that content has been moderated unfairly.

It's important to bear in mind that the ability to post content doesn't mean it's automatically OK: we reserve the right to remove content at any time which does not comply with these standards.

Indemnification

In the event of a breach of this agreement - and a loss being suffered as a consequence - TweakToday.com will look to hold the consumer responsible for reasonable losses.
