Boards.ie may at its absolute discretion refuse you access to the site, delete posts by you or suspend/terminate your account without prior notice for any reason and you shall not be entitled to any compensation in respect of this. If we disable your account you will not be entitled to create another account without our permission.
6.3 User status
Please note that your user status will appear in connection with your username. For example, should you receive a warning then a yellow card will appear on the post. Similarly, should you receive an infraction relating to your use of boards.ie, a red card will appear. Should you be banned from using boards.ie, the word 'Banned' will appear under your username.
6.4 Your interactions with other users
Journal Media Limited has no obligation to verify the identity of any users when they are connected to the site or to monitor Material provided by them.
Your interactions with other users, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and the other user.
As with any web-based interaction, we suggest that you use caution and good judgment. If there is a dispute between you and any third party (including any advertiser), we are under no obligation to become involved.
You are encouraged to exercise discretion when providing personal information about yourself on boards.ie. Any personal information which you volunteer in your public profile or post on the forums will be available worldwide to anyone with access to the website.
We recommend you never post your name, address, telephone number, email address or anything else that may lead someone to identify you if this is something you are uncomfortable with.
Please note that certain information (such as photographs) which you may choose to provide might reveal your gender, ethnic origin, nationality, religion and/or sexual orientation.
If you have an active boards.ie account you can request that your Personal Data be edited or deleted. This can be done by sending a Private Message (PM) to “Boards.ie: GDPR” (if for any reason you are unable to access or send a PM please email email@example.com
and we will get back to you with further instructions).
For closed accounts, all Personal Data will be deleted. Posts made by users whose accounts were subsequently closed cannot be associated with other information held by Boards.ie that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person and as such are not considered Personal Data.
In specific instances where the content of a post contains sensitive data or data that could be used to identify an individual and where the original poster no longer has an active boards.ie account you can request that we edit or delete the post; these requests will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
You can close your user account at any time. This process is irreversible and permanent.
Closing your account means we will delete your password, remove any email subscriptions or notifications you may receive, delete all Personal Data we hold about you and turn off and delete your Private Messages. This process does not remove any posts you have made on the site and does not remove the IP address that is captured when each post is submitted.
The posts are retained as they are an intrinsic part of the thread in which they are posted and removing them may make the thread unreadable or make the other posts difficult to understand or follow. The IP addresses captured with each post are retained for anti-spamming purposes. It should be noted that post IP address cannot be linked with other data to identify the individual who made the post as all other data concerning that individual will have been permanently deleted upon account closure.
Boards.ie may at its absolute discretion refuse you access to the site and/or cancel/terminate your user privileges without prior notice for any reason and you shall not be entitled to any compensation in respect of cancellation/termination of your user privileges. If we disable your account you will not be entitled to create another account without our permission.
