Terms of Use

In order to make SeniorLink a comfortable and safe place for members to communicate, you agree to abide by our Terms of Use. Your commitment to this Terms of Use in all forums, chat rooms, e-mails and/or other members areas in the space of the website is requested, in order to protect you, our members.

SeniorLink's Terms of Use cover the following areas:
Bulletin Boards/Chatrooms
Thou shalt respect others

We encourage everyone to treat each other with mutual respect. You may not use chat or any other public space on the website to threaten, harass, stalk, or abuse others. Refrain from all expressions of bigotry, racism, hatred, or profanity.

SeniorLink staff may eject or ban users, as well as remove postings, that violate the Terms of Use.

Thou shalt keep it legal

You cannot use the chat or forums to publish, post, distribute, or disseminate defamatory, obscene, or other unlawful material or information.

Do not upload files or post messages that contain photos, software or other material protected by intellectual property laws, rights of privacy or publicity or any other applicable law unless you own or control the rights thereto or have received all necessary consents.

Do not post any materials (including software and other information) that could harm (or is designed to harm) other users' computers or would allow others to inappropriately access software or Web sites.

Thou shalt play fair

SeniorLink cannot tolerate disruptive activity online, such as persistent off-topic comments and postings or statements that incite others to violate this Terms of Use or participate in illegal activities.

Thou shalt not spam

Please don't "spam" through the chat or forums. Spamming includes sending identical and irrelevant submissions to many different discussion groups, mailing lists or communities. Usually such postings have nothing to do with the particular topic of the group or are of no real interest to those on the mailing list.

To spam also includes misrepresenting the source of anything you say or post. Spamming is a serious violation of online etiquette.

We reserve the right to ban a member at any time, without notice, for spamming.

Thou shalt take responsibility

You are responsible and liable for all your activities while participating in SeniorLink membership areas. You are responsible for any actions you may take based on advice or information you receive online. Use your own good judgment when evaluating information provided through chat or forums, the information you are reading could be from people of any age, gender or experience.

Thou shall not use SeniorLink membership services for commercial gain

SeniorLink provides chat facilities and forums exclusively to SeniorLink members to help people make contact with one another, it is not a place to promote or advertise products or services (to advertise your product or service, please refer to our advertisers page at www.seniorlink.com.au/advertising.shtml) or publish inappropriate material. SeniorLink reserves the right to modify or delete listings at any time.

Thou shalt protect your own privacy

We advise you not to give out personal details such as credit card numbers, names and addresses, email addresses or other personal data to strangers online. These may be used for illegal or harmful purposes.
