Users of this website hereby agree to also abide by the Shrimpnfishflorida.com Commercial Posting policy and Posting Rules and Etiquette policy outlined below.
Sponsors and 3rd party sellers (such as fellow Shrimpnfishflorida.com subscribers) on this site sell their products as part of their own business or interests. Therefore members should research and verify any claims made by any seller of goods and services for their own protection. Shrimpnfishflorida.com cannot be held responsible for any failure, defect, inaccurate descriptions, inaccurate performance guarantees or inaccurate promises for any products or services initiated and concluded here on Shrimpnfishflorida.com .
Shrimpnfishflorida.com reserves the right to refuse any application for sponsorship or to refuse any application for advertising on any grounds or for any reason and to impose such conditions as it may deem advisable in its sole and absolute discretion in the best interests of Shrimpnfishflorida.com . Shrimpnfishflorida.com also reserves the right to withhold disclosure of the reason of any refusal of any application. Shrimpnfishflorida.com reserves the right to terminate a sponsorship/advertising contract with immediate effect and without notice if it is deemed that the actions or conduct of the business undertaking the advertising contract are bringing the name of Shrimpnfishflorida.com into disrepute. This will include any illegal business activities that infringe on or break Shrimpnfishflorida™Civil laws and any conduct deemed to be unbecoming of what is expected from a sponsor/advertiser. Such conduct will be reviewed by an administrative panel after which a contract can be terminated without prejudice. Furthermore no financial compensation will be granted in terms of pro-rata fee structures for the period of the contract. Examples of these actions or conduct could be consistently bad service, stock conditions, SNFF member complaints, quality, and general Bulletin Board behavior. This is obviously not an exhaustive list and each case will be considered individually.
Shrimpnfishflorida.com does not host any vendor feedback forums as they tend to spiral out of control quickly due to many different personal experiences with vendors or sponsors (or private parties) amongst the whole community. As such, it is against Shrimpnfishflorida.com 's policy to air out one's issues about sponsors, local stores, or private deals which have been made or may have gone bad. We would ask all those who have issues like this or similar in nature to work these kinds of problems out in private. Shrimpnfishflorida.com staff retains the right to retain or remove such posts from the general forums.
This User Agreement and any disputes arising out of or related to the services of this web site shall be governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of Florida, County of Volusia / Orlando of Federal.

Posting Rules and Etiquette
Anyone can read and search the forums, but you must be a registered member to post. Please be aware that you are a guest on a privately-owned site. Posting here is a privilege that we hope you will enjoy and respect, bearing in mind that this forum is actively used by both children and adults. By posting on this forum, you agree to observe the following guidelines, as well as our User Agreement and Commercial Posting Policy. You further agree to abide by our forum rules.
This is a moderated forum. We expect this forum to be a place where people can feel comfortable asking questions and where debates and discussions are conducted in civil tones. Please respect your debating opponents. Debates are about issues, not people. If you disagree with an idea, go ahead and argue your case against it, but do not confuse ideas with the person posting them; at all times we must conduct ourselves in a respectful manner to other posters. Attacks on individuals, insults, name calling, trolling, baiting or other attempts to sow dissension are not acceptable. If you feel that someone has attacked you or otherwise violated the policies of this forum, do not respond in kind. Instead, contact a Moderator by PM or report the offending post asking for it to be reviewed.
Please remember that any poster can edit their own posts after submitting them, so comments made in haste can be rephrased. If you saw read and realized later that you should have counted to ten before posting, consider rephrasing.
We also request that you be considerate of our readers and:
use meaningful titles on new topics/threads
avoid posting in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS or otherwise using distracting formatting
post in a way which is consistent with "normal writing"
do not use shortened words as if you were sending an SMS or Text Message
Please use proper words and avoid "chatspeak" or "leetspeak". We understand not everyone speaks English as their first language; however your posts should be more legible than something like this:
Bad Language: It is a bad idea to use such language. Foul language is hardly ever acceptable in mature public conversations, such as most forums are intended to be. If you are prone to the use of foul language in your life off the forum (as many of us are) it is probably best to proof read your posts until you get in the habit of not using such language.
We take the "Be Polite" rule very seriously. We do not tolerate any rudeness. Any member who is intentionally unpleasant or disruptive may be banned without warning.
Avatars and Signatures: Avatars and signatures can be fun, but they are also potential sources for conflict and disruption. Please note that an avatar or signature may be deleted by a moderator or site admin at any time if it results in multiple complaints from your fellow members or if it violates any of the following rules:
no ads or commercial messages (excluding sponsors)
no misleading photos
no offensive or disturbing images or text
no religious or political images or text
Politics and Religion
In order to avoid the inevitable frictions that arise from these topics, political or religious posts and comments are prohibited. There are many different religions as well as cultures making use of the forum and they need to be respected.
You also agree not to post any:
Material That May Violate Any Applicable Laws
Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the Webmaster, Administrators and Moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the Webmaster, Administrators and Moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.
Freedom of Speech
The free and open exchange of assistance, ideas, and opinions is highly regarded and encouraged on the forums, but it must be noted that the freedom granted to forum members is relative freedom. It exists within the boundaries and constraints of the above guidelines and principles. Complaints of 'censorship' are therefore baseless and unfounded, since this necessary framework must simultaneously provide reasonable limitations. We don't intend to censor messages based on the opinions expressed within posts, but we will enforce the policies outlined both here and on the Forum. We reserve the right to remove, modify or move posts at our discretion and without explanation.
We reserve the right to modify and amend these terms at any time without notice. It is your responsibility to remain informed of current Shrimpnfishflorida.com policies.
We do not monitor private messages. But we will investigate all allegations of PM abuse.
We further, reserve our right to disable any account at any time for any reason and without notice.
Finally; any abuse towards our staff and/or management in any form, may result in immediate suspension of your account.
terms and forum rules may be changed at any time without notice.
If you do
not agree with these terms, please do not register or use this Service. If you
wish to close your account, please contact us.
