Disclaimer

Vermillion is strictly a gaming and programming community website. Having registered to this site, users have already agreed to the Vermillion Registration Agreement, a copy of which can be found here. By agreeing to the Registration Agreement, users have also agreed to follow the administrator-specified rules, which can be found here. The rules very clearly specify, among other important things, that the distribution of malicious content will result in the removal of the content, and may well result in the removal of the poster(s) as well. We encourage users to be aware of this in their posting.

We would like to make it clear that neither Vermillion nor its staff members are responsible for the actions nor posts of our users, both on and off the website. Our staff team is comprised entirely of unpaid volunteers who continue to work very hard to keep illegal, malicious, and unwanted content off of the website. We continue to work to improve our moderation and in turn the site experience for the community, but ask that all users and interested parties be understanding in the fact that we may not be able to get to everything immediately. If you do see a malicious post, please alert our staff members right away by clicking the "report" button, and this will make our jobs a lot easier. If the content breaks laws, copyrights, or infringes on personal information, users and non-users are encouraged to use our content removal request form to make us aware of it.

Purchases & Spending

All purchases to our site are for site-based virtual content. Items we sell include VIP Memberships (which allow users special permissions on our forum), Custom usergroups (which essentially allow users a private section on our site), and Advertisements (which allow users to purchase a banner at the top of our site linking to their on-site threads, or offsite websites). In all cases, if a user is banned from our site due to their enfringement of our rules, they have forfeited access to their purchase for the period of their ban. This applies to permanent bans.

All membership sales are final and non-refundable. If an account is banned due to a violation of our rules, the user's membership cannot be refunded.
In the event of errors in our payment system, refunds may be issued by contacting an administrator.

More information regarding VIP purchases can be found here.
More information regarding Advertisements can be found here.
A legal agreement sent to buyers of usergroups can be found usergroups not yet re-implemented

California Online Privacy Protection Act
California is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy.
