Terms of Use: Page 2 of 2

Solicitations and Advertising:
Promoting your own, or any other another business or web site either directly or indirectly is not permitted. Please refrain from posting advertisements or solicitations unless you have obtained special permission to do so. (An obvious exception is the "For Sale/Adoption" board, where we allow you to advertise available cats or cat-related items, as well as links to cattery web sites.) Threads not observing this stipulation will be deleted.

The "For Sale/Adoption" board:
This board is intended as a public place to facilitate transactions. Persian-Cats.com does not necessarily endorse any particular breeder or cat, nor is Persian-Cats.com responsible for any claims made on these boards. Any troubles with cats or breeders should be handled privately among the people involved.

Please do not post material in the Community that is copyright protected without permission from the copyright owner. Persian-Cats.com is not responsible for any copyright or trademark infringement in the Forum, Gallery, or any other place that users post content to our site; however we retain the right to remove materials that prove to be infringing. You, the user, are responsible for making sure that your text and images do not violate any existing copyrights.

Anyone attempting to pass him or herself off as another member will have his or her user account and, in some cases, posts removed. This includes registering several different user accounts and using those accounts as if they were controlled by different people.

Private Message/E-mail Abuse:
Do not transmit junk mail, chain letters, or other unsolicited bulk e-mail or duplicative messages to our members.

Data Collection:
Do not collect information about other visitors to our website without their consent or otherwise systematically extract data or data fields, including without limitation any personal data or e-mail addresses.

Please do not sell access to or the use of this website, including any content contained on, downloaded or accessed from this website, except as specifically permitted in writing by Persian-Cats.com.

Membership Termination
Persian-cats.com reserves the right to, in our sole discretion, terminate your membership to our site without prior notice to you for violating any of the above guidelines or for any other behavior we deem inappropriate.

Please note that when a user's membership here ends (of his/her own free will or otherwise), we generally do not delete that user's posts within our community or other content on Persian-Cats.com. All content is granted to us with perpetual electronic publishing rights because any content posted on this site becomes a part of Persian-Cats.com, even if you no longer are. You may request an item to be removed at any time, but we will decide when and if to remove content from Persian-Cats.com.

Indemnification by User
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold us harmless from any loss, liability, claim, demand, damage, or expense (including legal fees) asserted by any third party relating in any way to your use of this website or breach of these Terms of Use. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, which shall not excuse your indemnity obligations.

Third Party Websites, Content and Products and Services
Links or pointers to other websites and references to products and services offered by third parties are provided to you for convenience only and do not constitute an endorsement or approval by us of (1) the organizations that operate such websites; (2) the content, privacy policies or other terms of use on such websites; or (3) such third party products and services. As we have no control or responsibility over websites or content maintained by other organizations, or for products and services offered by third parties, we do not assume any liability for your use of any of the foregoing, which use you acknowledge and agree shall be at your own risk.
