Forum Acceptable Use Policy

We want our forum to be enjoyable for visitors of all ages and world views. Use and membership of the boards is subject to the following rules and strictly at the discretion of the site owner:-

1) Any posts breaking these rules will be removed and users will have their posting rights and associated email services withdrawn.

2) When replying to a previous message, only quote as much of the original as necessary. Don't repeat a long message, then put "I agree!" at the bottom... it's hard to read, and slow to download.

3) These forums attract users of a wide age range and range of outlooks. Messages containing any language likely to offend other readers will be deleted. This also applies to any postings containing offensive statements relating to sexual orientation, race, religion or other factors having no relevance to the subject.

4) Messages should usually be posted to one group only, and this should be the one appropriate to the subject. Multiple user account registrations by any one user on the same board are not permitted, unless specifically sanctioned by the relevant forum administrator.

5) Commercial postings are not permitted on our forums, or private messaging systems except within the trade area where the appropriate membership level has been purchased. They are not a depository for press releases, adverts, or any other solicited or unsolicited commercial communication.

6) The Acceptable Use Policy applies both to private messages and forums.

7) Filesharing - Please refrain from posting any requests for, or offers of, copies of any Hyundai related material. This includes posting links to, and requests for, sites offering any downloads other than those operated by the Hyundai or their properly licenced agents. Posts violating this rule WILL be removed and posters barred from the forum. In addition your attention is brought to the fact that this forum tracks the IP numbers of all posters regardless of their membership status. We will pro-actively hand over the registration details and IP number of any poster violating this rule to the appropriate authorities.

8 Posts attacking the Hyundai Motor Company or any other party associated with Hyundai are NOT permitted. This does not apply to fair and reasoned criticism/reviews of the product range or other elements of the brand. However (for example) the calling for the sacking of any member of the board of directors, or the making of personal, offensive or unsubstantiated comments about them will not be tolerated under ANY circumstances.

9) You agree to help keep the forum enjoyable and not to post any abusive, obscene, libellous, hateful, threatening or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. You also agree to comply with our Acceptable use policy. Compliance with our policy is a contractual requirement of access to our forums and failure to comply may lead to suspension or termination of your user account without further notice from us. Any material may be removed without prior notification. The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that we have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database.
