J. Enforcement and Moderation

PDA may investigate and prosecute violations of this Policy to the fullest legal extent. PDA may notify and cooperate with law enforcement authorities in prosecuting violations of the law and this Policy.

To ensure a healthy discussion environment, we may engage both human moderators and automated software to assist with the moderation of posts. While we strive for quick moderation, please note that neither human moderators nor the automated software is infallible. We ask for your patience and request that you do not repost the same content multiple times. Depending on the time of day and current news situation, there may be delays in post approvals.

If you believe someone has submitted content to the Forum in violation of this Policy, please report the post immediately. Our goal is not to stifle free expression, but to create a discussion environment where everyone feels comfortable participating.

We reserve the right to change, redact, and delete content on the Forum for any reason. Posts that violate this Policy or detract from the quality of the discussion may be removed. There is no legal right to have your post published. Similarly, there is no legal right to have posts deleted, as this may require the removal of entire discussion threads due to content dependencies.

Users who repeatedly violate this Policy will be banned from the Forum. In severe cases, user accounts may be permanently suspended, and re-registration may be prohibited.

K. Reliance on Information / No Sales Activity

The information on our Forum is for informational purposes only. It is not intended for distribution to or use by any natural or legal person in any country where the distribution or use would be in violation of local law or regulations, or where any registration requirement in this country would be enforced. Persons or entities to whom these prohibitions apply must not access and/or use this Forum.

IN PARTICULAR, THE INFORMATION REGARDING ANY DESIGNATED PRODUCT(S) OR SERVICE(S) ON THIS FORUM IS NOT AUTHORIZED FOR DISTRIBUTION, AND IS NOT INTENDED TO AMOUNT TO AN OFFERING OR ANY SALE IN THE UNITED STATES OF ANY COMMODITY, DERIVATIVE OR SECURITY IN ANY RESPECT.

L. Third-party Content

Our Forum may contain content from third parties, including other users, bloggers, and third-party licensors.

These materials do not necessarily represent the views of PDA. We are not responsible or liable to you or any third party for the content or accuracy of any materials provided by third parties.

M. External Links

Our Forum contains links to websites of third parties (so-called “external links”), over whose content we have no influence. External links are provided solely as a convenience to you.

The respective provider or operator of the external links is always responsible for the content of the external links and the linked websites. The access and use of external links is entirely at your own risk and subject to the terms and conditions of use for such websites.

The setting of external links does not mean that we adopt the content behind the external link as our own. A constant control of the external links is not reasonable for us without concrete evidence of legal violations. However, if we become aware of any legal violations, we will delete such external links immediately. We reserve the right to withdraw linking permission without notice.

Deeplinking or framing of the Forum or other techniques by which our Forum (or parts thereof) are integrated into third-party websites - in any form - are not permitted without our prior written approval.
