By using or participating on the Forums, you agree to this User Agreement including but not limited to the Rules of Conduct and the Terms of Service stated below. For purposes of this agreement, "User" refers to any individual posting on or otherwise using the Forums and SG101 refers to the owners and staff of SurfGuitar101.com and their authorized representatives.
SG101 reserves the right to change the Rules of Conduct, Terms of Service and all other parts of this User Agreement at its sole discretion and without notice.
As a standard operating procedure, SG101 does not enter into correspondence, discussions or other communication, either public or private, about SG101 policies, individual moderators, enforcement or application of the User Agreement, bans or other sanctions, etc.

SG101 is not responsible for messages posted on the Forums or the content therein. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message.

Any User who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us. We have the ability to remove messages and we will make every effort to do so within a reasonable time if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to act immediately. Removal of messages is at the sole discretion of SG101.
