  1. House Rules

28 Contributions to this Website are subject to the following terms:

28.1 Our moderators will view all comments before appearing on this Website. Our moderators will assess the comments solely on the basis of the rules outlined in these Conditions. If they believe that the comment exceeds the boundaries outlined here, the comment will be deleted and will not appear. If a comment includes unacceptable elements, we reserve the right to delete the entire comment. The decision of our moderators is final, and no correspondence will be entered into.

28.2 We will not respond to comments posted on this Website. If you require a response, please complete the ‘contact us’ section of this Website.

28.3 Criteria which our moderators judge comments on include, but are not limited to defamatory, libel, racism, sexism, sectarianism, obscenity, threatening language, impersonation or expressing support for a proscribed organisation.

28.4 We would ask that you use your name on comments wherever possible. Again, this helps to add to the mature and constructive debate on the Website. If for any reason you decide to use a pseudonym we would ask that you choose a name that is not offensive in any way and adheres to the boundaries outlined above.

28.5 Please do not use swear words in your comments. Please try to ensure spelling, punctuation and grammar in your comments are of a suitable standard. Due to the substantial number of comments we receive, our moderators do not have the time to correct your spelling.

28.6 Please do not post messages that are not related to the topic being discussed. We understand that discussions can widen beyond the original topic and are keen to foster debate, but comments that are irrelevant contribute nothing to the debate.

28.7 Please do not post the same comment a number of times. Once is sufficient. Our moderators check comments regularly and if you are patient it should appear within a reasonable period of time.

28.8 These Conditions may be amended from time to time. It is your responsibility to check for, and adhere to, the updated Conditions. The views expressed in the comment section in no way reflect those of any member of the Group. We take no responsibility for posts on this Website.

28.9 Users should not breach copyright restrictions by posting information in any form (e.g. text, video, audio, graphics) to which they do not hold the copyright. Use of this Website constitutes your acknowledgement and acceptance of the Conditions outlined.

28.10 Our web server will automatically log the IP address of anyone posting a comment to the Website. Any information gathered from that process will remain confidential and will only be disclosed as required by law. For further details please refer to our Privacy Policy appearing on this Website.

  1. Right of Automatic Suspension

30 We shall have the right to immediately suspend your access to our Website if you commit a breach of these Conditions, and the right to remove any material that we, at our sole discretion, consider to be defamatory, or otherwise in breach of any of these Conditions.

31 You will indemnify and defend us against all claims, liability, damages, costs and expenses, including legal fees, arising out of a breach of these Conditions or any use of our website.

32 If any of these Conditions should be determined to be illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by reason of law then, to the extent and within the jurisdiction in which that term or condition is found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, it shall be severed and deleted, and the remainder of the Conditions shall survive, remain in full force and effect, and shall continue to be binding and enforceable.

  1. Privacy

33 If we gather any information about you then such information will be gathered and used by us in accordance with our Privacy Policy (a copy of which can be found elsewhere on this Website).

  1. Waiver

34 No waiver by us of any breach by you of any of these Conditions shall constitute a waiver of any other breach, and no failure to exercise or partial exercise by us of any remedy shall constitute a waiver of the right subsequently to exercise that or any other remedy in part or in full.
