Forum Rules & Policies
When you register on DreamWorlds you are required to give a small amount of information, much of which is optional. If you choose to enable some information in your profile when setting up your forum preferences (for example you may set the preference to enable your email to be viewed - or disable it to be off-view), anything you decide to enable must be considered as becoming public information through display in your site profile. We do not pass on any member information to third parties save in circumstances stated below, where there are legal or security implications that require our co-operation.
We do expect new registrants to post within these forums. If you simply register but then do not post, we fully reserve the right to terminate your account with no notice to yourself, although we will attempt to do so by email where possible.
Anyone who registers only to cause trouble will be barred from re-entering the forums. We have taken time to provide warm, welcoming and open discussion fora, which cover many different topics on life, family, friends, and lots more besides. We will not tolerate people who merely register and have no interest in contributing to the community, apart from causing havoc, or whose intentions are solely to cause annoyance or offence to existing forum members.
When joining DreamWorlds you agree not to use this forum to post any material which is vulgar, defamatory, inaccurate, harassing, hateful, threatening, invading of others privacy, sexually oriented (save in areas which are designated 'adult only' and appropriately protected), or violates any laws. You also agree that you will not post any copyrighted material that is not owned by yourself or the owners of these forums
You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless this forum and their agents with respect to any claim based upon any post you may make.
We also reserve the right to reveal whatever information we know about you in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by yourself.
Although messages posted are not the responsibility of this forum and we are not responsible for the content or accuracy of any of these messages, we reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. If you do find any posts are objectionable then please contact the forum by e-mail (email@example.com).
Age-related issues/Adult Content
The Federal Trade Commission's Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA) requires that Web Sites are to obtain parental consent before collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from children under 13. If someone is younger than 13 years old then they can not use this forum as we have a secure area solely given over to use and content by members over 18 years old only.
We do NOT accept registrations from anyone below the age of 13.
This is why we insist on dates of birth being provided when you register. If they are not provided then your registration will not be activated ~ all registrations are monitored by the Site Managers so that anyone under 18 years old is assigned to the correct membership group (Young Members) which group is unable to access any content on the site that is intended for adult only consumption .
Please also note:
The FreeWorlds forum and personal sub-forums may contain adult content. For this reason we require the date of birth of every person registering on this website in order that we may correctly place them in the appropriate grouping where those who are under the age of 18 are unable to access these adult areas. Full details of our adult content policy for the parents or guardians of young members are available HERE.
Adult forum members who do not wish to access or use the FreeWorlds forum may also opt out at any time and join our Family Member group which is subject to the same restrictions as the Young Members group and has no access permissions to the FreeWorlds.
Failure to provide the correct date of birth will result in deletion of that members profile, as will any collusion, whether or not knowingly, in assisting or permitting any member under the age of 18 to access any areas of this website that may contain adult content, whether or not that is present
When registering to use the various DreamWorlds fora you have confirmed that you meet the above criteria and agree to abide by all of the above rules and policies.
If you have any problems, questions or suggestions on any of the above information, please feel free to mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org - For non-sensitive enquiries you may instead go HERE to reach our admin team
