You agree, through your use of the MMOC forum, that you will comply with the posting guidelines outlined in this agreement. You also agree not to post in violation of any International or UK law. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this website. You also agree by submitting or uploading any materials to our forums, you represent and warrant that you are the owner of such materials and by that action grant the MMOC a perpetual, royalty-free, irrevocable, nonexclusive right and license to use and reproduce any such material for display on the site or a derivative created from the site

While the administrators and moderators of the MMOC forums will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or webmasters (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint for legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.

When registering, you must provide a valid e-mail address in order to be approved or to e-mail your password should that be necessary. (Changing your password or e-mail address automatically forces our software to e-mail it to you for verification.) Your IP address must not be hidden/masked. If you are hiding behind a masked IP Address your account will be deleted without any questions. Your E-mail addresses will be blocked from view to protect your privacy, but will be available to the administration. You can elect to receive e-mails in your personal settings. To prevent abuse, members are allowed only one registered account per person [exceptions apply with permission]. In the case that you lose your password and cannot retrieve it automatically, please use the “I Forgot my Password” link or contact us with your login details; we will reset your password for you. Please DO NOT create a new account. Any duplicate accounts we discover may be merged together or may be deleted without warning.

You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason. We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

Please note that the site's software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.

These terms and conditions may be updated from time to time. Your continued use of the message board indicates that you have regularly reviewed this document and are happy to be bound by those updated terms.

I've never understood why the T&C aren't readily available on the menu after a member has joined (if they are, please point them out as I've never seen a link to them)..... Will this Topic Post be getting pinned somewhere?

It is pinned now. It's the topmost post in every forum.

I have read the T&Cs in this thread but wondered what prompted their posting at this particular time?

Looks like there’s been an issue...guess it’s sensible for the club to pre-empt any problems with a disclaimer.

Looks like the country’s top legal team put that one together. Talk about belt and braces. :o

It's relatively standard as these things go, and there's no cloak and dagger - the revision is designed to clarify the reason for the cookie we leave on your PC and to ensure GDPR is properly complied with. I'm going to lock the thread now as its supposed to be a notification rather than a conversation and I don't want it to lose its focus. By all means open a conversation in the 'off topic' forum if you'd like to continue discussing the t&c :D
