Igniting Passion and Building Businesses from the Ground Up. We Hope to Inspire You.
By enrolling in the member area of the Elf Productions website and participating on our site, Members expressly acknowledge that they have had access to, read and agree to be bound by and warrant full compliance with the following membership rules, referred to simply as the "Rules".
Members acknowledge that Elf Productions has the right to enforce and modify these Rules at its sole discretion from time to time. These revised Rules take effect for all Members as of the date of posting and Members must check for modifications to the Rules on a regular basis.
Our Rules are fairly simple. We simply ask that you use our website with respect, good manners and common sense.
The purpose of our Elf Library, newsletter and related content is to offer meaningful discussion and to exchange information about Elf Productions products and services in a collegial atmosphere.
All Member postings on the site must be relevant, of an informational nature.
If members do not respect or accept our website Rules, their further participation on the site will not be authorized. Inappropriate or disruptive posts, as determined by Elf Productions, may be blocked or removed with or without notice.
Elf Productions is under no obligation to publish any post submitted by a Member. Our Member access will be moderated to maintain professional standards and Elf Productions exercises all rights to exercise any and all editorial control. If posts are deemed inappropriate, Elf Productions reserves the right to cancel Membership access at any time with or without notice.
Elf Productions archives published Member posts and all published posts will be made available to Members. Furthermore, Elf Productions may collect data relating to Members' use of the site such as automatic data provided when Members log in. Elf Productions uses this information to provide better products and services to our members and this is accessible only to authorized Elf Productions personnel and affiliated partners.
Elf Productions does not sell, rent or otherwise make available any personal data to third parties at any time, unless requested formally by the law.
In all cases, upon request, Elf Productions will remove Member's personal information from its database, canceling registration and access to our content library.
Member postings must be in English. Common greetings and expressions in other languages is acceptable.
Elf Productions accepts no responsibility for the opinions and information posted by Members. Elf Productions disclaims all warranties with regard to the information posted via Members to any discussion board. In no event shall Elf Productions be made liable for any special, indirect or consequential damages, or damages of any kind whatsoever, resulting from loss of use, data or profits, arising out of or in connection with the use of performance of any information posted on the discussion boards and blogs.
Members will include their full name or pen name 'pseudonym' in all messages posted to discussions, but will not include other personal information about themselves or anyone else, such as their address, telephone number, email address or place of work. Members will not represent themselves as other persons.
Members will not make multiple postings on any subject in such a way as to be likely to discourage others from posting their own comments.
Members will not post any defamatory, profane, abusive, threatening, illegal or offensive content, material or information in any form. This includes any material that may be construed as vulgar, obscene, offensive or pornographic in nature, and will refrain from direct or indirect personal attacks, insults, harassment or threats, hate speech, discussion, incitement or instructions relating to illegal activity, infringement on others’ legal rights (including trademark, copyright, or privacy rights), slander or defamation, false or inaccurate statements, or violent or abusive content. Attacks against other Members or persons or entities affiliated with Elf Productions will not be tolerated.
“Spamming”, in any form or “Flaming” of other Members is strictly forbidden. Disputes and arguments will not be brought into the discussion boards and blogs and should be resolved privately. Personal issues relating to product purchases and service transactions should also be resolved privately and must not be aired on the discussion boards and blogs for redress or publicity relating to such disputes.
Members may in their sole discretion determine through their Privacy Settings whether other Members may contact them directly by email.
Members will also refrain from making disruptive or provocative posts (e.g. from “Trolls” and “Shills”) designed to upset other Members or to provoke arguments or heated exchanges and Members will not respond to posts in a way that may upset or cause distress to others.
Members will not post any information or other material protected by copyright without the permission of the copyright owner, nor will Members use any words, logos or other marks that would infringe upon the trademark, service mark, certification mark, or other intellectual property rights of the owners of such rights without the permission of such owners. Furthermore, Members will refrain from posting any confidential information or any information that would infringe upon the proprietary, privacy or personal rights of others.
By posting material, the posting Member warrants and represents that it owns the copyright with respect to such material, has received permission from the copyright owner, or that the material is in the public domain. The posting Member further warrants and represents that it otherwise has the full and unencumbered right to post such material and that such posting will not infringe any rights or interests of others. In addition, the posting Member grants Elf Productions and other Members of the discussion boards and blogs a non-exclusive, irrevocable license to display, copy, publish, distribute, transmit, print, and more generally use such information or material in any manner, without payment to the posting Member.
The discussion boards and blogs will not be used in any manner that violates antitrust or unfair competition or other legislation prohibiting anticompetitive practices. The antitrust/unfair competition laws generally prohibit any agreement or understanding inconsistent with the right and obligation of competitors to exercise independent business judgment in pricing their products or services, dealing with their customers and suppliers, and selecting the markets in which to compete. No express agreement or understanding is required; one can be inferred from statements or conduct. In particular, Members will not post any information regarding specific prices or fees charged or paid, and will not post any information concerning prices, pricing practices, discounts, or other terms or conditions of sale either obtained by or offered to another entity relating to Elf Productions products.
Commercial use or any other unauthorized use of the discussion boards and blogs is prohibited. Members may not use our website or related discussion boards to solicit or conduct business, including the direct or indirect marketing of its products and services, including related businesses, dealers, websites, services or events, in any manner. The discussion boards and blogs may not be used to provide information, materials, products, or services in exchange for compensation of any kind.
Elf Productions may monitor the discussion boards and blogs for inappropriate postings. In the event that any inappropriate posting or unauthorized use of the discussion boards and blogs is brought to Elf Productions’s attention, including but not limited to prohibited posting and usage as outlined herein, Elf Productions will take all appropriate action, in its sole discretion. Elf Productions reserves the right to terminate, without prior notice, a Member’s access to the discussion boards and blogs or to any members-only areas of the website.
Members agree to indemnify Elf Productions against all damages, costs and expenses that may be incurred by Elf Productions as a result of that Member’s breach of these Rules.
