Justdubs Terms of Service

Justdubs provides the services to you, the visitor, based on its Terms of Service (TOS) outlined here. When using the services provided by Justdubs, you are subject to these posted terms. Usage of the services on this site denotes acceptance of these terms. The TOS may be changed at any time and without direct notice to individual visitors, so it is recommended that you check back with this page at any time you have questions or concerns.

Registration Requirements

In order to view messages on Justdubs's message boards without user restrictions, no registration is required or necessary. In order to post messages on the boards, and use other advanced services, you must register with Justdubs using a valid e-mail address. Upon registration, an Activation Key in the form of a URL will be mailed to the address you provided. You must visit this URL using the web browser of your choice to activate the account. No posting privileges are granted until the account is activated.

Justdubs not require you to use your real name or other identification that can be easily traced to you, and the e-mail address you provide will be kept private. In order to register on Justdubs, registrants must be 13 years of age or older. Justdubs does not knowingly collect any information from any users under 13 years, and if it is found that an underage user has fraudulently registered, their account will immediately be terminated.

Content Notice

By viewing the site content, you agree that all content on the Justdubs's Message Boards is the responsibility of the person from which the content originated. You agree that neither Justdubs nor its sponsors or affiliates are responsible for all content that you personally post or upload. Justdubs does not directly control any content posted on the boards, and does not guarantee the truthfulness or quality of any content.

You agree that while using the Justdubs message boards, you may be exposed to content that is offensive or objectionable, and that you will in no way hold Justdubs nor its sponsors or affiliates liable in any way, shape, or form for any harm or loss that may come to you or others as a result of viewing this content. Justdubs is not responsible for screening content before it is posted, although an offensive language filter is installed on the system that will reject certain posts that may contain certain words deemed offensive or used most often in an offensive way.

Account Responsibilty

Users are solely responsible for protecting their accounts from access by others. You are strongly encouraged to select a hard-to-guess password and not re-use that password on any other sites where it may be read by the owners or administrators of that site.

Because of this rule, it is highly recommended that board users do not share their accounts with others, nor share their computers used to access the site with others, as the actions of some other person could easily directly impact all known shared message board accounts.

Privacy and Release of Information

Under normal circumstances, Justdubs will never release your provided information to any third party without a court order requiring us to do so. However, in cases of certain severe and/or repeated TOS violations or illegal activities, we reserve the right to forward any and all known information about you and your accounts to your ISP (including libraries, schools, and places of employment), e-mail service provider, your ISP account owner (if someone else is actually paying for it), and any parties whose copyright has clearly been infringed by your actions on the boards.

Terms Violations

Topics and message posts that violate the TOS will be deleted from the boards, and additional penalties may be applied at the moderator's discretion. Re-posting deleted violations (yours or those of others) is also considered a violation.

Messages and topics may be removed at any time and for any reason at the sole discretion of Justdubs and its designated moderators. User accounts may be warned, suspended, or revoked at any time and for any reason at the sole discretion of Justdubs and its designated moderators.

Intentional, repeated, or severe violations are cause for the banning of your account, all use of the boards from your IP address or your entire ISP, and Justdubs contacting your ISP or other relevant parties concerning your activities.
