9.3 Please note that any posting of information in these forums is the opinion of the person posting only and in no way reflects our opinions or attitudes. Although we believe we have an amazing forum with a huge wealth of information of benefit to many users, you must remember that we operate an open forum and sometimes messages are posted that are misleading, deceptive, or downright wrong. You should not therefore rely on information being accurate or complete. If you do, you do so at your own risk.
9.4 We don't monitor the use of the forums or our comms systems, so we do rely on
you to inform us if you spot any abuse or inappropriate behaviour, in which case
we will review specific postings. If you feel you have been threatened or damaged
in our forums or via our comms systems or if you believe any infringement of your
rights may have occurred through our site please contact us at forumteam@company-
9.5 We reserve the right (but we are not obliged) to do any or all of the following:
9.5.1 record the communications in forums and comms systems.
9.5.2 investigate a claim that any one or more communication does not conform to the terms of this clause 9 and determine in our sole discretion to remove or request the removal of the communication(s).
9.5.3 remove without notice communications which are abusive, illegal, or disruptive, or that otherwise fail to conform with these Terms.
9.5.4 terminate a user's access to post messages to any or all of these areas
9.5.5 monitor, edit, or disclose any communication in these areas.

appeal to webmaster@Company-
9.7 Any decision we make to remove or request the removal of any communication or to terminate or suspend the posting privileges of any user of the forums shall be final and binding. The termination or suspension of posting privileges shall apply to any and all user accounts that may have been used by that person, whether or not opened by that person.
9.8 If you are notified that your posting privileges have been suspended or terminated, you will not attempt to reregister as a user of the Forum or make any posts on it in any guise whatsoever.
9.9 When former users whose posting privileges have been removed do reregister or otherwise disrupt the Forum, this spoils the Forum and can cause severe distress or disturbance to other users. Dealing with the unwanted posts of former users distracts us from the core purpose of the site and ties up management and technician time. Therefore in such circumstances we reserve the right to:
9.9.1 Report offenders to their ISP
9.9.2 Charge offenders for the administrative costs of identifying and removing their posts at the rate of £40 per hour necessarily spent plus any external costs that we incur.
9.9.3 Take legal action to recover these costs.

10.1 You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless us, our directors, officers, employees and licensors from and against any claim, liability, cost, damage or loss we may incur (including reasonable legal fees) as a result of any material that you post or transmit on our communication forums or via our comms systems, any actions you take which disrupt access to and/or the functioning of our site or any breach by you of your obligations under these Terms.
11.1 If any of these provisions is deemed invalid, void or unenforceable that provision will be deemed severable from the rest and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
11.2 This site is directed to users in England and Wales only unless otherwise specified for specific items posted on this site.
11.3 These Terms shall be governed by the laws of England and any dispute between us will be resolved exclusively in the Courts of England.
