    FORUMS

    BlitWise has made available forums for the benefit and enjoyment of all fans and customers. BlitWise would like them to be an online society where anyone would feel welcome and everyone can have fun. For the existence of any such society, however, there must be rules of order and behavior.

    A. Family Friendly

    BlitWise and its members wish for the forums here to be available to all people, of various ages, backgrounds, and sensitivities. Therefore, language or behavior which would be inappropriate to use in an intended Family-Friendly environment is therefore not allowed. Foul, offensive, or abusive language is forbidden. This includes the use of swearing, racial, religious, or sex-based slurs, as well as any language designed solely to demean or belittle another poster. Sexual comments and sexual innuendo are also violations of the TOS. Attempting to use words which are forbidden by altering the spelling, or replacing letters with asterisks (*), is also considered a violation. Posts and/or threads found to be in violation may be edited or removed by the Forum Moderator, and the offending poster given a private warning. If a poster shows a pattern of such uncorrected behavior he may have his membership suspended for a given period of time, or, in certain cases, may be banned from the forums entirely.



    B. Personal Respect and Courtesy

    It is the intent of BlitWise to provide a place where fans may socialize and discuss in a respectful and mutually enjoyable manner. To this end, behavior which runs counter to this goal is considered a violation of the TOS. This includes, but is not limited to, (A) ad hominem attacks, that is, an attack on the person or character of another poster, rather than on his or her ideas or opinions which may be contrary to others; ( violent or threatening behavior against another poster, his or her property, or (C) anything else which is deemed intimidation against his or her well-being, which includes threats of physical violence as well as threats of electronic violence, such as hacking or spamming; hostile or disruptive posting, including any threats or behaviors forbidden above, spamming of threads or forums, or (D) any other behavior which is disruptive to the environment or running of the BlitWise forums.


    C. Decorum and Decency

    As stated above, the atmosphere of these forums is one of family friendliness. Therefore, the advocacy of the use of illegal substances, or of controlled legal substances such as tobacco or alcohol in an illegal manner or by those not of a legal age, is a violation of the spirit of the BlitWise’s entertainment, and thus of this forum and its TOS.


    D. Legal and Privacy Concerns

    The safety and privacy of all our fans and posters is a paramount concern to Blitwise Productions. Consequently, it is improper for posters under the age of 13 to release any personal information on the forums. This includes real name, specific location, or age. It is also inappropriate to express excessive or persistent curiosity about the age, location, or name of another poster on the forums, and may result in warning, suspension, or banning. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, children under the age of 13 may not register to post on the forum without verifiable parental consent by a parent or guardian.

    E. Submission of User Material and Feedback
    Users understand that all postings, messages, user feedback, data, comments, suggestions, information, text, data, software, sounds, photographs, audio, audiovisual, video, artwork, graphics, files and other materials of any nature ("User Materials") that are transmitted to or via the Site are the sole responsibility of the person from which the User Materials originated. Users understand that whether or not such User Materials are published on the Site, BlitWise does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any submissions. BlitWise does not want to receive confidential or proprietary information from users through the Site or by email. In the absence of an express written agreement between users and an authorized by writing BlitWise employee, any User Materials, information or idea you transmit to BlitWise by any means may be disseminated or used by BlitWise or its affiliates without compensation or liability to you for any purpose whatsoever, including, but not limited to, developing, manufacturing and marketing products. However, this provision does not apply to personal information that is subject to our privacy policy , which is subject to separate provisions. Unless you enter into a separate written agreement with BlitWise, BlitWise does not claim ownership in User Materials you submit, however, by submitting User Materials in any form to BlitWise, in addition to other provisions of the TOS, users grant BlitWise a royalty-free, world-wide, non-exclusive, sub-licensable, and assignable right and license to use, copy, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, edit, translate, create derivative works from, transmit, distribute, publicly display and publicly perform such User Materials.
    F. Assumption of the Risk
    BlitWise assumes no responsibility for the accuracy, content, or outcome of any posting transmitted on BlitWise’s message boards. Participants should use advice at their own risk. Again, BlitWise reserves the right to delete any message it deems inappropriate.

    Please note:As our board develops and the community prospers, we will indeed be updating the TOS, sometimes in significant ways. Please check back when we do so, as these changes may effect you.
