Three Strikes and You Are Out

Whilst we do not monitor Material posted by users, we reserve the right to take down Material that comes to our attention via a complaint or otherwise.

Users who repeatedly ignore this Terms of use of the Procorre Portal will be barred from joining discussions on The Discussions section of the Portal. This operates on a "three-strikes-and-you're-out" basis: if we have to remove Material posted by you on three occasions, you will be blacklisted. You will not necessarily be notified when Material is removed. Procorre will not enter into any correspondence with or about users who have been blacklisted.

Procorre reserves the right to immediately ban a user if there has been a serious breach of the Terms of Use of the Procorre Portal. All decisions in relation to these matters are carried out at the sole discretion of Procorre.

You are responsible for making sure that you have all rights to what you post, including the rights necessary for you to grant the licence above.

By posting any Material on the Discussions you represent and warrant that: (i) you own the Material posted by you or otherwise have the right to grant the licence above, and (ii) the posting of the Material does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, intellectual property rights, confidentiality, contract rights or any other rights of any person or is not otherwise illegal. You agree to pay all royalties, fees, or any other monies owing any person by reason of any Material posted by you to or through the Discussions.

Withdrawing Material You Post

Please do not post any information you are not happy to leave up indefinitely.

In order to ensure that threads and conversations are not disrupted, we do not generally remove Material which is uploaded to us unless otherwise required by law. Consequently, you agree that your Material displayed on the Discussions may continue to appear on the Discussions, even after you have terminated your user privileges or have had your user privileges terminated by Procorre.

We cannot guarantee that other users will not use the ideas and information that you share. Therefore, if you have an idea or information that you would like to keep confidential and/or don't want others to use, you must not post it on the Discussions. We are not responsible for a user's misuse or misappropriation of any content or information you post on the Discussions.

If you believe that any content on the Discussions contains a defamatory statement, or a statement which is otherwise illegal please notify Procorre immediately by using the contact us pages. Once this notification has been received, Procorre will use all reasonable endeavours to remove the defamatory content complained about within a reasonable period of time.
