Considering the real-time nature of the Cyclones Football Forum, it is impossible for the administrator to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that he does not actively monitor the content of posted messages and is not responsible for any messages posted. The administrator does not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and is not legally responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of the Cyclones Football Forum or SHGFootball.com. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact the administrator immediately by email. He has the ability to remove objectionable messages and will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if he determines that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that the administrator may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

The administrator reserves the right to delete any message or member for violating any of the rules above without notice or explanation. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold the Cyclones Football Forum, SHGFootball.com and its owner harmless with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).

Through information technology, the administrator is able to track your activity and gather personal information regarding your member account.  He reserves the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information is known about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.

REMEMBER: Being a member of the Cyclones Football Forum is NOT a right. IT IS A PRIVILEGE.

If you have any questions regarding these rules and guidelines, please email the owner/administrator at webmaster@shgfootball.com.
