2. Terms regarding Forums hosted by CPDpoint

CPDpoint forums are provided for the purpose of education and customer support. Our terms of use apply to every forum hosted on this site. A message posted on CPDpoint forums is the view of the individual who posted the message, not the view of CPDpoint. We are not responsible for the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message posted at a forum hosted by us.


If you use forums hosted by CPDpoint, you have agreed that you will not post any material that is false, inaccurate, defamatory, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, pornographic, racist, threatening, or that is invasive of a person's privacy, or in violation of any law. You also agree not to use this site to breach any intellectual property laws.  


Each forum hosted by CPDpoint is a private group overseen by a moderator. It is the responsibility of each group to define unacceptable conduct during its formation and it is the moderator’s role to enforce any sanctions against group members who engage in unacceptable conduct.


A forum member who objects to a posting of another member is encouraged to contact the forum moderator for advice, not CPDpoint. The moderator can do any of the following at their discretion: approve people to join; ban members from participating in the forum; or promote members to become moderators of discussions.


If at any time CPDpoint becomes aware of conduct occurring on forums that is in breach of our terms of use, we may pursue any or all of the following courses of action: request that you rectify the situation; terminate your access to the forum; terminate your contract without refund; refuse to enter into any subsequent contract with you; report your unlawful violation to the relevant authorities.
