MSPP - Registration

By accessing “MSPP” (hereinafter “we”, “us”, “our”, “MSPP”, “http://www.microbee-mspp.org.au/forum”), you agree to be legally bound by the following terms. If you do not agree to be legally bound by all of the following terms then please do not access and/or use “MSPP”. We may change these at any time and we’ll do our utmost in informing you, though it would be prudent to review this regularly yourself as your continued usage of “MSPP” after changes mean you agree to be legally bound by these terms as they are updated and/or amended.

The “MSPP” will use their own discretion when deciding whether to approve new registrations. The “MSPP” reserves the right to terminate any account as it sees fit without providing a reason. For an administrator to approve your registration requires that we be able to determine you are human and not joining for reasons that our policies do not allow. The email address used for registration MUST use a real and valid ISP email account. Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, and other free and similar email accounts for new registrations are no longer allowed except under unusual circumstances. The IP address used for registration MUST match the ISP email domain. Use of any services or methods to obfuscate (hide) the real IP address such as proxy servers, VPNs and other services are not permitted. We may make certain checks to validate the email and IP addresses. We may also disallow some ISP IP addresses as we may decide from time to time. Email addresses that do not exist will not be allowed and your email address must stay valid. We do NOT share or sell email addresses. An email address using an AU organisation or institution registered domain may also be allowed but will only be accepted if the domain is extremely well known such as a “.gov.au“ domain. All registration approvals will be entirely up to an administrator. If you do not agree with the registration policy then do not proceed.
