User Code of Conduct
We at fostersaoc.com are excited about customers and users being able to communicate with each other and share ideas. However, we want all our users to be able to feel safe and at ease whilst using our site. The best way of addressing this balance is to have a user code of conduct.
By using our site you'll be agreeing to these Terms and Conditions including the Code of Conduct in this section.
The fostersaoc.com community is designed where possible to manage itself. Every comment left by a user can be rated and flagged by any other user. A user can positively, neutrally or negatively rate a comment. Also, a user can flag a comment as inappropriate or offensive by clicking a link that says "flag" next to each comment. Flagged comments may be reviewed by the moderators of fostersaoc.com, who may remove those comments if they feel they are inconsistent with these Terms and Conditions. If a user's comments are removed several times, it may be necessary to put the user "on probation" – meaning they cannot post anymore comments for a set period of time. If needs be we may remove the user from the site altogether.
So if we believe that a user's behavior is likely to cause offence or harm to other users or to SABMiller, or is otherwise unacceptable, we may issue that user with a warning, disable their registration and/or terminate or otherwise restrict their access to and use of this site . In addition, we may need to remove any content which they have shared or posted up on the site. We will try to give that user warnings through the flag and probation system outlined above but we're not obliged to give the user that notice.
To protect our users and the reputation of the site, we may keep an eye on the interaction between users from time to time but please note that we have no obligation to police it.
