These terms apply to all users of this website. If you do not accept these terms then you should immediately stop using this website. Your use of the website confirms your acceptance of these terms. We cannot guarantee that you will always be able to access the website; we will not be liable to you for any interruption or delay that you experience in accessing the website, whatever the cause.
Editorial PolicyWe encourage users to share, debate, and discuss points of views on our website and Facebook pages.
Everyone has the right to express themselves but should also respect other users. The Advertiser is impartial and as such will always endeavour to avoid colouring a debate by censoring or altering its content where possible.
While we accept no legal responsibility for individual's comments, there are occasions when the Advertiser may be obliged to intervene. Where this is the case, the following guidelines will be applied.
You must not make or encourage comments that are:
- defamatory, false or misleading;
- insulting, threatening or abusive;
- obscene or of a sexual nature;
- offensive, racist, sexist, homophobic, discriminatory or otherwise objectionable;
- promoting illegal activity; or
- intended to deceive.
These rules do not cover all eventualities and are intended as a guideline and portray the spirit of policy only.
Reader comments that violate the letter or spirit of these rules or our Terms may be removed. If we do remove something, we will generally remove posts, or where necessary, whole threads (not parts). This means that even if only one sentence is objectionable, the whole comment will usually be removed.
We hope that you will understand that, once properly notified of a complaint, we may have to remove a contribution for legal reasons (whatever the rights and wrongs).
We are unable to enter into dialogue about individual cases.
