    General Rules / Netiquette
    While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, profanity (or attempts to bypass profanity filters), insulting messages or personal attacks.

    Our decision is final in these matters. Any discrimination against another person (present or not, alive or not) will get you kicked and/or banned!

    We do not tolerate passwords or hints thereof in threads, topics, descriptions, usernames or elsewhere. Names should be meaningful and not consist of repeated characters / spam.
    These threads will get deleted without warning. If re-created, the may be banned!

    Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the chat, avatars, thread names or descriptions and private/offline messages to spam other users. We also do not allow avatars, channel descriptions or links to sites that are sexual in nature or violate UH community standards.

    The Universal Hosting GM team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards. . We reserve the right to delete offensive threads, or threads without meaningful names (e.g. 1111111) without notice.

    While these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure this server is not disrupted or abused in any way.We reserve the right to kick/ban anyone who violates the server rules, as access to our public servers is a privilege and not a right.

    Privacy Notice
    While Universal Hosting strives to support user privacy, users will never see a "we use cookies" banner. This is the official compliance notice that community users may be exposed to non-tracking cookies to help us deliver services. These cookies serve only a user authentication / verification purpose and may store user settings. The cookies we use will never track your activity and can be cleared using the standard "clear cookies" process for your browser without affecting user community experience.

    Advertising / Solicitation
    We do not allow users to create channels, use avatars or send text messages to other users here that advertise or solicit any products, services, funds or donations. Advertising plans and packages are available upon request.

    Forum and Blog Rules
    Follow the community standards. We have a dedicated team of GMs, Moderators, and community staff that will take action on any content that violates terms of service or community standards.

    Keep the threads clean. No swearing, spam, offensive content, etc.

    We encourage users to discuss anything they want, as long as it does not violate laws or community policy. If you do not see a category for your topic, post it in the off-topic section or request a new thread in the ideas and suggestions area.

    UHX and CIS staff can be identified by employee tags in the ranks and signatures. Remember that the posts of our employees and moderators do not necessarily reflect company views. Official news releases and blogs can be identified by the [OFFICIAL] tag in posts and blogs.

    While we encourage users to interact with any threads they like, check the posted date before replying to an old post. The information in the thread may be irrelevant or out of date.

    Community staff have the right to change or update these rules when required without notice.

    Enjoy the new community!
