You may not in any way make commercial or other unauthorised use, by publication, re-transmission, distribution, performance, caching, or otherwise, of material obtained through the Website, except as permitted by the Copyright Act or other law or as expressly permitted in writing by these Terms of Use or by Siren Empire.

You agree not to disrupt, modify or interfere with the Website or its associated software, hardware and/or servers in any way, and you agree not to impede or interfere with others’ use of the Website. You further agree not to alter or tamper with any information or materials on or associated with the Website.

Siren Empire makes no representation that materials on the Website are appropriate, available or legal in any particular location.

The use of inappropriate or offensive language is not permitted on Siren Empire. Inappropriate or offensive language includes, but is not limited to, any language or content that is sexually oriented, sexually suggestive, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, profane, hateful, bigoted, incites violence or other unlawful behaviour, encourages breach of these Terms of Use, or contains racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable material of any kind. This includes, but is not limited to, the use of punctuation characters or symbols to simulate swearing. Siren Empire is designed to be accessed by people of all ages 16 and over, and foul language will not be tolerated.

No Spam – No Selling
Siren Empire does not tolerate Spamming. Spamming includes sending identical and irrelevant submissions to many different areas or promoting blogs, services, businesses or other enterprises outside of topics where relevant. Usually such postings have nothing to do with the particular topic of the group or are of no real interest to our readers. Spamming also includes misrepresenting the source of anything you say or post. Spamming is a serious violation of online etiquette.

Siren Empire may from time to time post on behalf of third-parties. These threads will clearly be marked as sponsored or promoted.

Any such remarks should be sent directly to the company or individual concerned and not posted on this site. Any such remark deemed unacceptable will be edited or deleted without prior notification.
