Terms & Conditions
Registration Obligations When registering at ISFAT you agree to provide true, accurate, complete and current information about yourself in the fields that you are prompted with in the registration form and in your control panel. If any information changes, it is necessary that you maintain and update the information to keep it true, accurate, complete and current. If ISFAT has reason to believe that any information is false, incomplete or not up to date then ISFAT has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the site.

User Conduct You agree not to reproduce, republish, duplicate, sell, resell or exploit any portion of the service granted to you on or by ISFAT. By registering at ISFAT, you also agree to follow our forum guidelines. This includes, but is not limited to: no negative behavior towards other members; no uploading or linking to pornography, adult content or other illegal media; and no advertising in posts.

Modifications & Termination ISFAT reserves the right to at any time modify or discontinue (temporarily or permanently) the freely granted service of the website and its policy (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that ISFAT shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuation of the service.

We maintain the right to suspend or terminate your account if we believe that you have been or are involved in mis-conduct or have violated your registration agreements. ISFAT staff also have the right to at any time and for any reason: warn you, place you on moderator queue and remove your posting rights. ISFAT may modify or terminate your user account or any content that belongs to a member at its sole discretion, without any notice and for any reason. For example: moderators may manually reduce the size of a member's signature if it is deemed too large (and therefore taking up a lot of space in topics).

Copyright Info
Content
All content included and found on this site such as, but not limited to: the site design and layout, the unique forum template, concepts, news, graphics, text and descriptions, is the property of ISFAT, unless stated otherwise. Please see the Credits & Thank You's section below for more information. Images such as, but not limited to: emoticons; icons; member avatars; personal member photos; and images belonging to the default Invision Power Board skin, are the property of their respective owners or skin creators. Images posted to ISFAT such as member photos, avatars, or images included in posts that may be copyrighted by third parties are believed to be covered under the fair use doctrine and ISFAT does not claim copyright over these images.

Submissions
Content posted or uploaded by a user remains the sole property of the individual. However, in contributing and posting data to the ISFAT site and forum, members grant ISFAT the non-exclusive and royalty-free licence to publish, adapt, maintain, modify and reproduce the content anywhere for the cause of displaying and promoting the site.

Violations
Members who infringe or repeatedly infringe the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of ISFAT or other third parties may be suspended or terminated at the discretion of the ISFAT staff.

If you believe your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or that your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please contact an administrator.

Licencing & Republishing ISFAT reserves all rights to its content, especially topics and posts. We do allow you to quote and reference any topics, posts and ISFATs for non-commercial use - on the condition that proper attribution is given to ISFAT. Along with each article/item, you must include a link back to either http://www.isfat.com or the specific ISFAT address that the article is located (either are acceptable).

Idemnity Please remember that the advice given by ISFAT users is not coming from professional counselors or authorities - it is being suggested by teens, young adults and people just like you. Before acting on advice given, please think about it for yourself. If you post about a subject that's dangerous or life threatening, you should definitely contact your local authorities or talk to a helpline. (Better to be safe, than sorry!) In Australia, there's the Kid's Help Line (confidential, free and very supportive!) Your local residence most likely have their own services like this, so do an online search!

You agree to indemnify and render ISFAT and its affiliates (members, staff or others) harmless from any claim or demand, including attorney fees, made by you or any third party due to or arising out of your content, your use of the website, your connection to the website, your reactions from the website and service provided, your violation of the terms of your service, or your violation of any rights of another.

Donations & Related Obligations Please remember that when you donate, your membership does not become a paid service. Payments are strictly donations only. We offer enhanced site features and perks to those who donate. However, these perks are considered a "thank you gift" that we are not liable for. This is not an obligation or a service that the site must maintain. Finally, donating to ISFAT does not award you special treatment or exemption from the Terms & Conditions.

Contests ISFAT will sometimes hold various contests in which the community may partake in. With such contests, ISFAT's staff members maintain the right to delay or halt a contest at any time for any reason. ISFAT may refuse entry or disqualify participants at any time and for any reason - even after the contest has ended. In the case of referral contests, referrals are logged and you will be disqualified (and most likely suspended) if found to be referring fake members (for example: creating new accounts yourself). Regarding prizes, please be patient with delivery times. Remember: it's a freebie, don't complain!
