Advertising

In order to financially support Jeep Owners Club, the Administrator maintains relationships with several commercial organisations.  In return for their contribution, they are given the right to advertise their products or services to the Jeep Owners Club membership.  These commercial organisations are deemed to be members of Jeep Owners Club, and as such must abide by the contents of this Acceptable Use Policy.

To protect their interests, no content created with the intention of selling a product a service may be posted on or transmitted through Jeep Owners Club without prior permission.  This includes links or other content within forum signatures, avatars or member profiles, and extends to materials (such as flyers, posters, or vehicle livery) displayed or distributed at events or meets.

This restriction applies equally to non-profit or charitable organisations.

Organisations interested in advertising their products or services must contact the Administrator before applying for membership.

Guidelines for Advertisers, Sponsors and Commercial Members

Commercial Members will be allocated a dedicated section within the Commercial Area.  Commercial members are entitled to use this area to inform Jeep Owners Club members of their products and services, and to respond to direct requests for information.  However, the Code of Conduct and Acceptable Use Policy must be followed at all times.

Outside of the Commercial Area, commercial members are welcome to contribute to any existing discussion where they feel they can add value, but must not respond in a manner that could be construed as advertising their products or services, touting for business, or diverting the topic of discussion for their own gains.  Commercial members may not start new topics outside of their dedicated section within the Commercial Area.  Outside of the Commercial Area, commercial members may not respond to general requests for information ("what brake pads would you recommend?") with specific recommendations for their own products or services - this is considered spam.  General on-topic advice, however, is to be encouraged.

Additionally, Commercial members may not: initiate contact with members via private message (PM) without having first been requested to do so by the member concerned; recommend their products or services over their competitors; openly criticise their competitors' products or services; consistently spam the Commercial Area with advertisements or hyperlinks to their own website; encourage members to contact them privately for information that is otherwise prohibited by this policy.

General guidelines: Jeep Owners Club members appreciate others who share their enthusiasm, but tend to turn off quickly in the face of 'spin' or overt 'sales-speak'.  Commercial members will generate far greater returns by consistently demonstrating their enthusiasm for the Jeep brand and their belief in the concept of the Jeep Owners Club community by contributing in a self-less manner.

Guidelines for Franchised Dealers

Staff of Jeep franchised dealers may register with the forum only after taking out a Supporting Dealer package.  For details, please contact us.  Failure to do so will result in immediate cancellation of membership. 

Supporting Dealers may use their dedicated area within the Supporting Dealer section to post details of their new and used stock, details of events, special offers, finance deals, etc.  Details of stock vehicles must be physical stock units either in stock now for immediate viewing, or arriving shortly.  Speculative listings, i.e. for vehicles that are not yet in production, will be removed.

Supporting Dealers may contribute to discussion elsewhere on the forum, but all posts of a promotional or commercial nature must be made within their dedicated Supporting Dealer section only.

In all cases, dealers may not: openly criticise any other dealer registered with the forum; use the Jeep Owners Club membership list as a source of potential customer details; entice members to contact them for any information that is otherwise prohibited by this policy.

Our advice is to contribute to the community in a selfless manner: by demonstrating your enthusiasm for the brand and building a relationship with the members of the community, you will generate far greater returns than simply attempting to spam the forum.

Moderation

In all cases, the decisions of the Administrator/Moderators are final.

Discussion relating to any particular moderation action will be limited to the poster concerned.

Posts questioning or debating these rules, or action taken by moderators or administrators, will be removed without comment. Feedback is encouraged, however, but should be confined to private discussion with the moderator team.

Signatures

Forum signatures should consist of text only - images and banners are not permitted - and must be kept to a reasonable size so as not to deform the forum's layout.  Forum signatures may not contain links to commercial organisation or other Forums or Clubs without prior approval.

Liability

Jeep Owners Club, its Administrators and Moderators cannot pre-approve or vet content submitted by its members in real-time.  In addition, no guarantees can be given to ensure the prompt removal of any content that violates this policy.  As such, Jeep Owners Club does not assume any liability to visitors or members for any failure to enforce the terms of this policy.

The presence of Advertisers, Sponsors and Commercial Members does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation by Jeep Owners Club, and no liability is accepted.

Termination, Expiry, Suspension or Withdrawal of Access

Jeep Owners Club, its Administrators and Moderators, may decide to suspend or permanently withdraw access to Jeep Owners Club for individuals that violate any part of this policy.

In extreme cases, suspension or cancellation of membership may occur without any prior warning.

In the case of Commercial Members or Supporting Dealers, suspension or cancellation will occur without refund of any membership or advertising fees paid.

Upon the natural expiry of a Commercial Member's or Supporting Dealer's Membership, their dedicated section will be removed.

Revisions

Jeep Owners Club reserves the right to modify this policy at any time without notice

I agree to the terms and conditions for membership to Jeep Owners Club.
