TERMS OF SERVICE

1) Respect Horology.World members and visitors
There is no need for cursing, flaming, racism, personal attacks or other disrespectful behavior.  

2) Do not spam
Commercial advertising or promotion of commercial services is not allowed in the forums. Selling of watches, clocks, accessories and other horology-related items by businesses is allowed in the Marketplace. Horology.World reserves the right to remove any posts for any reason.

3) Don't get us in trouble
Don't post copyrighted materials, discuss, sell or promote counterfeit items or do other things that will obviously lead to legal trouble for the site owners, moderators and members of Horology.World

4) Posting etiquette
A well-written post is easy to understand and will get the attention of others. Thread titles should be a clear summary of the subject you are posting about. It is important to stay on or close to the topic of the thread you are posting in. Unrelated, off-topic posts may be deleted or moved to a new thread.

5) Keep the place nice
This site is not the place for obscene, vulgar, pejorative, hateful, threatening or sexually-oriented content, excessive swearing, or other immature behavior. The site does not filter bad words so we rely on everybody to keep it clean. This includes actual words and intent (like substituting characters or abbreviations).

6) Links to other sites
Links to commercial businesses are allowed by second-party individuals and must be in the context of the thread/post. Commercial sellers can link to their products or website when they add value to the forums and other areas of Horology.World

7) The Final Word
The owners and moderators of Horology.World reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any content item for any reason they deem appropriate in accordance to their best judgment. They will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this site but it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and the owners of Horology.World will not be held responsible for the content of any message.

8) Use at your own risk
While there is an effort to present accurate information, there is the possibility of incomplete or incorrect information. Horology.World, moderators, and contributors cannot assume liability for any damage or loss incurred for using any information on this website. Information in tutorials and posts is intended to inform.

9) Copyright and content on Horology.World
All original content on the site is property of the authors. No content may be used without written consent from the author/HW member. Edits and deletions in the forum may be done within 30 days. After this time, content becomes part of HW indefinitely and can not be changed or removed. 

10) Accounts and content
A member can request to have their account deleted from the site. All personal information like email address and profile information will be removed but all content posted by that member remains on the site. Removing content will disrupt the flow of many threads and the integrity of the site.

11) Content on Horology.World
Content from other websites may not be directly copied to Horology.World, unless you are the author of such material. Excerpts of or quotes from external content should always identify the source. 

12) Horology.World content on other blogs and news websites
You may only copy brief excerpts of any content and properly credit Horology.World as your source. Translation of content for a limited number of articles in other languages than English is allowed but Horology.World must be identified as the source, including a link to the original site content.
