  1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS

Timog Forum provides its service to you, subject to the following Terms of Service, which may be updated by us from time to time without notice. By using the services of Timog Forum, you agree to be bound by this Terms of Service and agree to abide by the Timog Forum Rules and Guidelines (http://www.timog.com/forum/showthread.php?t=365 ) as interpreted by the Timog Forum Administration.

  1. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE

Timog Forum provides users with an online website where they can interact with other users by posting in the forums or by using the chat and private messaging system. Members can share opinions, information and personal experiences about living in Japan and other matters of interest. Timog Forum is also a place where they can help each other by offering emotional support, informed advice and language assistance.

  1. TERMS OF MEMBERSHIP & USAGE RESTRICTIONS

a) Membership is available to any Filipino in Japan, or to anyone who has an interest in and can offer productive discussions with Filipinos in Japan, who registers and accurately provides all the required information, and who agrees to be bound by this agreement and follow the Timog Forum Rules and Guidelines (http://www.timog.com/forum/showthread.php?t=365 ). Membership is non-transferable.

b) All membership information must be accurate and belong to the person registering. Invalid, incomplete, or falsified information can result in the immediate termination of all membership privileges for that user and, possibly a permanent ban, restricting the member from using any of Timog Forum’s services at any time.

c) Timog Forum is not responsible for the content of any member’s posts, and the views expressed on this website are the responsibility of the posting member and not Timog Forum’s. Timog Forum does not preview member posts in any way before they appear on the site. Any link posted to a third-party internet address does not imply an endorsement of that site or its content by Timog Forum.

d) Pornography of any type is not allowed. Posts of an illegal nature will not be tolerated. Threats of any kind will not be tolerated and will be removed and the user suspended or banned permanently. Removed threats will be retained by the owners as evidence should legal action be desired by the threatened party.

e) The owners, administrators and moderators of Timog Forum reserve both the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason, and the right to suspend or delete any user account for any reason we feel is in violation of the Terms of Service and the Timog Forum Rules and Guidelines (http://www.timog.com/forum/showthread.php?t=365 ), both explicit and implied.

f) Membership in Timog Forum is a privilege, not a right. We reserve the right to deny service to any person at any time without cause.

  1. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

It is the policy of Timog Forum to respond expeditiously to claims of intellectual property infringement. Timog Forum will promptly process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions to comply with the law. Should a violation of intellectual property be discovered, the documents or messages in such violation will be removed in a timely manner after any and all investigating has been completed to prove the authenticity of such a claim.

  1. PUBLIC CONTENT ON TIMOG FORUM

Any and all content posted for inclusion in publicly accessible areas of Timog Forum are the responsibility of the creator. Timog Forum makes no claims or warranties about such information or its authenticity. Upon posting any content on this website, you grant Timog Forum the non-exclusive right to publish, modify and use such content solely for the purpose of displaying such content.

No representations made or advice given by Timog Forum members, moderators or administrators should be in any way considered a professional advice, either discussed or implied. Answers to questions are offered as information only and should always be used in conjunction with advice from a professional. No responsibility is taken by Timog Forum, its members, moderators or administrators, for any conceivable consequence which might be related to any answer that is freely given to questions on this site.

  1. LEGAL RESTRICTIONS

Membership in and the use of resources contained within Timog Forum constitutes full agreement and acknowledgement of the restrictions, limitations and terms set forth in this agreement.
