Terms of Service

The terms of service vary based on the relationship of users and POP Forums:

Terms of Service: End Users

The End User Terms of Service are an agreement between you ("you" or "your") and POP World Media, LLC ("POP Forums"), and use of this software service constitutes your acceptance of this agreement, as periodically amended. An "end user" is a person who uses the hosted service but does not necessarily pay for it.

POP Forums makes no representation about the suitability or accuracy of statements or data on POP Forums or its affiliated sites and all content is provided "as is" without any warranty, expressed or implied. POP Forums shall not be liable for any damages caused by the use of content on POP Forums or any of its affiliated sites. Links from POP Forums or its affiliated sites to other sites are provided for the convenience of its viewers. Links do not constitute endorsements by POP Forums and may be followed solely at the risk of the viewer.

Considering the real-time nature of forums, it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact support@popforums.com immediately by e-mail.

POP Forums reserves the right to delete any message for any or no reason at all. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless POP Forums, POP Forums' customers and their agents with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your messages.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use POP Forums to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law. You agree to bare sole responsibility for any of these actions. You agree not to post any copyrighted material for which you are not licensed to distribute.

POP Forums reserves the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.

Any dispute regarding these terms will be settled in Orange County, Florida, USA.

POP Forums reserves the right to alter these terms of service or change site offerings at any time. Your use of this site constitutes acceptance of these terms as revised from time to time, without notification of such revisions.

You must be 13 years of age or older to register use POP Forums, in accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). DO NOT REGISTER UNLESS YOU ARE AT LEAST 13 YEARS OF AGE. We are not permitted by law to collect information about people under the age of 13 without proof of parental consent, and therefore choose not to accept registrations of those under the age of 13.


Terms of Service: Service Customer

The Service Customer Terms of Service are an agreement between you or your company ("you" or "your") and POP World Media, LLC ("POP Forums", "us" or "our"), and use of this software service constitutes your acceptance of this agreement, as periodically amended. A "service customer" is the person or company that's actually paying for the hosted service.

Purchase Agreement

When you purchase POP Forums services, you agree to recurring monthly charges until you cancel the renewal. In the event that you exceed usage limits, you will be charged for the next highest plan that will accommodate your usage. POP Forums is not responsible for any fees associated with your banking accounts. All sales are final and not refundable. In the event that POP Forums can not charge your payment method for services, your forum will be deactivated.

Ownership of data and content

You own the data and content created as a product of using POP Forums services. You may request a copy of the data from POP Forums by electronic notice, and POP Forums may require a fee to export this data. POP Forums agrees to export the data within 30 days of receipt of the fee. POP Forums will not sell the data to any third parties outside of a complete sale of the service to another company, in which case it will make a good faith effort to ensure that these terms continue to be enforced.

Service Level Agreement

POP Forums will in good faith keep the service running at all times, but in the event of a complete service failure, meaning your forum is generally not available on the Internet, POP Forums will refund that month's fee on the following schedule:

  • 95% or less uptime in the billing month: 50% refund
  • Greater than 95%, but less than or equal to 98% uptime in the billing month: 25% refund
  • Greater than 98%, but less than or equal to 99% uptime in the billing month: 10% refund

Data integrity

While POP Forums will in good faith attempt to maintain the persistence of data created through its system, you acknowledge that it is possible for catastrophic failure to occur that could result in the loss of data.

Obligation to moderate

You are ultimately responsible for moderating the content on your forum, however, POP Forums reserves the right to remove any content that violates the end user terms of service, or otherwise violates the law or creates an unsafe or dangerous scenario. POP Forums may deactivate your forum if it consistently finds content that violates the end user terms, and will issue a refund at that time. POP Forums will forward DMCA requests to you. Please cc: emails regarding DMCA notices to support@popforums.com.

Privacy policy

POP Forums has a Privacy Policy, but since you ultimately own the data of your forum, you should specify your intentions in your own terms of service that users see when they create a forum account. Instructions for adding your terms of service are available in Administration Settings.

You assume all risks in using POP Forums and operating a forum on our platform. You, and on behalf of yourself, and all agents, heirs, successors and assignees voluntarily agree to release, hold harmless, defend and indemnify POP Forums and its agents, heirs, successors and assignees from any and all claims, actions or loesses arising from use of POP Forums and its services.
