(i) About your posts:
* Contributions must be civil and tasteful.
* No disruptive, offensive or abusive behaviour: contributions must be constructive and polite, not mean-spirited or contributed with the intention of causing trouble.
* No unlawful or objectionable content: unlawful, harassing, defamatory, abusive, threatening, harmful, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, racially offensive or otherwise objectionable material is not acceptable.
* Be patient: users of all ages and abilities may be taking part in the relevant FitnessBeans.com community.
* No spamming or off-topic material: we don’t allow the submission of the same or very similar contributions many times. Please don’t re-submit your contribution to more than one discussion, or contribute off-topic material in subject-specific areas.
* No advertising or promoting.
* No spoilers: material which contains plot developments which haven’t been transmitted on UK television will be deleted unless submitted in a designated ‘spoilers’ area or marked as a ‘spoiler’.
* Contributions containing languages other than English may be removed unless allowed in the relevant local house rules.

(ii) Your FitnessBeans Account:
If you use multiple logins for the purpose of disrupting a community or annoying other users you may have action taken against all of your accounts.

All accounts must be registered with a valid personal email address that you access regularly so that moderation emails can be sent to you. Accounts registered with someone else’s email address, or with temporary email addresses may be closed without notice. We may require users to re-validate their account if we believe they have been using an invalid email address.

FitnessBeans reserves the right to close accounts if any user is seen to be using proxy IPs (Internet Protocol addresses) in order to attempt to hide the use of multiple FitnessBeans accounts, or if an non UK user pretends to be a UK user, or disrupts any of our services in any way.

(iii) Safety:
We advise that you never reveal any personal information about yourself or anyone else (for example: telephone number, postal address, home address or email address or any other details that would allow you to be personally identified) in any FitnessBeans community.

(iv) Legal requirements:
* You may not submit or share any defamatory or illegal material of any nature in FitnessBeans.com communities. This includes text, graphics, video, programs or audio.
* Contributing material to a FitnessBeans.com community with the intention of committing or promoting an illegal act is strictly prohibited.
* You agree to submit to or share with FitnessBeans.com communities only contributions which are your own original work. You must not violate, plagiarise, or infringe the rights of FitnessBeans or third parties including copyright, trade mark, trade secrets, privacy, publicity, personal or proprietary rights.

(v) If you’re under 16:
* Please get a parent’s or guardian’s permission before taking part in any FitnessBeans.com community.
* Never reveal any personal information about yourself or anyone else (for example, school, telephone number, your full name, home address or email address).

(vi) If you breach these Community Rules:
If you fail to abide by these Community Rules (and/or any variations in relevant local house rules) when taking part in a FitnessBeans.com community, you will be sent an email which informs you why your contribution has been refused or edited. This email will also include a warning that continuing to break the rules may result in action being taken against your account or accounts.

This action may include any content posted by you being checked before allowed to go on the site or a temporary or permanent suspension of your ability to participate in any or all of FitnessBeans.com community areas.

If you submit or share offensive or inappropriate content to or with any FitnessBeans.com communities or anywhere else on FitnessBeans.com or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on FitnessBeans.com, and FitnessBeans considers such behaviour to be serious and/or repeated, FitnessBeans may use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop any further such infringements. This may include informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school or email provider about the infringement(s).

FitnessBeans reserves the right to delete any contribution, or take action against any FitnessBeans account, at any time, for any reason.

19. If any of these terms are determined to be illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by reason of the laws of any state or country in which these terms are intended to be effective, then to the extent and within the jurisdiction in which that term is illegal, invalid or unenforceable, it shall be severed and deleted from these terms and the remaining terms shall survive and continue to be binding and enforceable.

All the actions taken by the user of the website are the responsibility of the individual. FitnessBeans cannot make any guarantees that any information is correct or be held liable for any actions taken based on the product and pricing information provided.
