Forum Rules

The following terms supplement and form an integral part of the Terms of Access. They govern Your access to, and use of, any SGS Forum.

1. You are solely responsible for the content of your Messages. You must comply with any rules posted by SGS on a Forum. You may not:

By submitting Messages to any Forum you agree to indemnify and hold harmless SGS from any and all claims, costs and expenses (including legal expenses) arising out of any Messages posted or published by you that are in breach of this section.

2. The Forums contain Messages submitted by users over whom SGS has no control. SGS cannot guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of any Messages. Some users may breach these terms and post Messages that are misleading, untrue or offensive. You must bear all risk associated with your use of the Forum and should not rely on Messages in making (or refraining from making) any specific business or other decisions.

3. SGS employees (who will be clearly identified as such) will also contribute material to the Forums in order to stimulate discussions and ensure the smooth running of the Forums. The Forums may also contain messages from special guests selected by SGS. The opinions of those SGS employees and special guests are their own and are not necessarily endorsed by SGS. They should not be considered by you as professional advisers.

4. By submitting Messages to any Forums you are granting SGS a perpetual royalty free non-exclusive licence to reproduce, modify, translate, make available, distribute and sub-license the Message in whole or in part and in any form. This may include personal information such as your user name and alias and your expressions of opinion. SGS reserves the right to contact you by e-mail with regard to your use of the Forums.

It is not possible for SGS to fully and effectively monitor when Messages infringe the copyright of a third party or other third party rights. If you believe that a Message in a Forum violates these terms of this section, we encourage you to contact SGS by sending an email that identifies the applicable posting and the screen identity of the person who made the posting. SGS cannot guarantee that any action will be taken as a result of your email.
