Your privacy
We will not sell or pass on your private details that we hold about you. All details held are required for the day-to-day running of Planet Jersey Forums. However we reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you to authorities who formally request this.

Disclaimer
Neither Planet Jersey Forums, nor any of the associated sites, can be held responsible for any false, offensive or otherwise unacceptable content on this message board.

Breaches of our terms and conditions will be dealt with on an individual case-by-case basis, resulting in formal warnings, suspensions and permanent bans. In extreme cases we will not hesitate to report members to their Internet service provider (ISP) or to take legal action.

We reserve the right to make amendments to these terms and conditions at any time. All changes will be notified to members via an announcement visible in all forums, or if only relevant to a single forum, within a "sticky" thread within that forum (as listed above).
Planet Jersey Forums is privately owned and run. Membership of Planet Jersey Forums is not an automatic right of any user and is only granted on the condition that users accept all terms and conditions. Any use of the forum is taken as your agreement to these terms and conditions.
