2. Only users who have registered with full registration data including real name and a valid e-mail address are permitted in baexpats.org community areas. Failure to register, or registration with false information is grounds for immediate blocking of access. Additionally, it is the member's responsibility to update and maintain a valid email address with their membership.

3. You will not use baexpats.org community areas for any unlawful purpose.

4. Baexpats.org does not endorse, and specifically disclaims any responsibility or liability for, any content on any message board or blog, in any chat room, on any Web page, or on any other content on baexpats.org site.

By contributing or submitting any content to the baexpats.org, the user states that he or she is the author and owner of the intellectual property rights, and grants baexpats.org and its assigned agents a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, transferable right and license to use, copy, modify, delete in its entirety, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from and/or sell and/or distribute such materials and/or incorporate such materials into any form, medium or technology without compensation to the author.

7. We reserve the right to read and monitor personal messages sent on baexpats.org between users. We do this to protect the website from potential security threats, unauthorized advertising or spamming. Personal messages are not considered the private property of the sender or recipient of the messages. The Personal Messages system is a free service to community members. If a member's account is disabled they will not be able to retrieve any saved messages.

8. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Baexpats.org and its members, and defend Baexpats.org and its members at your expense for any and all claims, actions, and proceedings, including attorney's fees, arising from your use of Baexpats.org services.

9. These Terms of Service will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to its conflict of laws provisions or your actual state or country of residence. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision or portion of the Terms of Service to be unenforceable, the remainder of the Terms of Service will continue in full force and effect.

10. Baexpats.org reserves the right to:
  • move any discussion in community areas to a different folder or room for any reason at our sole discretion;
  • edit any discussion, post, or chat room title for any reason at our sole discretion;
  • to bar, restrict, block any user for any reason as well as remove any content at our sole discretion;

12. We are open for suggestions, however any questions about this site operations should be addressed to the webteam directly by sending an email to webteam@baexpats.org. Questioning any aspect that is outlined in these Terms of Service in any other way will be regarded as disagreement with the Terms of Service and may result in termination of your account.

13. If your account is terminated or restricted, all of your obligations and liabilities which have accrued over time while the Terms have been in force will continue indefinitely.
