Site Disclaimer & Legal Information
Patriot Rising (hereafter referred to as PR) is an organization that comprises of two major correlating entities: an informative website containing a number of objective articles, and a number of discussion forums located on said website.
The organization has within its membership people of every race, creed, and color from all over the world. Its purpose is to provide information and news, leaving room for discussion and entertainment without prejudice.
Usage of PR in accordance with COPPA (The Children’s Online Protection Policy Act)
The content of the PR website is by no means considered adult material. However, the discussion forums tend to touch on subjects that may or may not be appropriate to children. Rules restricting certain subjects and content are in place on our public forums which, not only protect the integrity of the forums, but are in place to restrict content deemed inappropriate for children. As a standard, PR adheres to the COPPA and only restricts membership to those of and above the age of 13. Beyond that, PR takes no responsibility for a child’s exposure to inappropriate material published on the domain; it is then in the hands of the child’s parent or legal guardian.
When you register as a member of PR, you must choose a username and password that is unique to you. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the username and password, and you are responsible for all activities that occur under your username. Furthermore the use of more then one username is strictly prohibited. The administration of the Patriot Rising monitors member behavior and the IP addresses of all who visit the forums, including those who do not register. Violation of this standard will result in a permanent denial of access to the forums. The username must not be offensive, abusive or pornographic in nature. Violations will result in deletion without further notice.
PR reserves the right to delete, modify, terminate, or suspend any member account at any time. The leaders of the PR Forums are not obligated to explain such decisions, but may do so as courtesy. In the best interest of the member, it is highly recommended that the member notify the PR administration of any possible unauthorized use of a username. In such a case where a member is banned before the ability to report a security breech, the member should use the contact form in order to contact the website administrator.
Modification rights and/or duties
Moderators and administrators have the ability to remove or edit objectionable messages from the forums and will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if in their judgment they should determine that removal or modification is necessary. As this is a manual process, however, members should understand that PR moderators and administrators may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately or they may overlook such messages. The administrators and moderators are not obligated to explain the reasons behind their decisions to edit or remove messages from the forums to the PR members.
It is considered good membership to report violations of the forums’ rules with respect to the content of the messages and/or behavior of its members as soon as they occur. This will help the leadership of PR to maintain the integrity and standard of quality of the content of the Patriot Rising Site.
Patriot Rising Organizational Rights
