VI. Classified Ad Policy.

1. Classified Transaction. GlockTalk provides a forum for users to advertise their own goods for sale to other users, in the form of ads (“Classified Ads”). A “Classified Transaction” shall be defined as any Agreement made between GlockTalk Users for the sale, barter, or conveyance of merchandise or services.

2. Venue Only. You agree and acknowledge that GlockTalk is not providing a service for Classified Transactions. GlockTalk is only providing an advertising venue for the completion of Classified Transactions. GlockTalk is not involved in any actual transactions, negotiations, or communications between buyers and sellers in furtherance of Classified Transactions, and we make no representation, and give no assurance, that:

  1. a. The persons using GlockTalk (a) are not misrepresenting their identity, location or authority to enter into contracts, and (b) are of legal age and capacity to enter into contracts.
  2. b. A seller placing an Item on GlockTalk is able to or will complete the sale of the Item or deliver the Item to the buyer, or that a buyer purchasing an Item is able to or will complete the purchase of an Item from a seller.
  3. c. A seller has truthfully and accurately described an Item placed on GlockTalk.
  4. d. An Item listed for sale on GlockTalk exists, or is (a) safe, (b) of any particular quality, (c) non-infringing with regard to the intellectual property rights of any person or entity, or (d) free from liens, encumbrances or contractual claims attributable to seller, or that an Item may be legally sold by the seller.
  5. e. The sale and transfer of an Item complies with any or all applicable legal requirements for the sale, transfer and transport of that Item, including but not limited to statutes, regulations or requirements of any country, state, locality, province, municipality or other government authority or regulatory entity regarding sales or auctions, the sale and/or transfer of any Item, export or import control, taxation, duties or tariffs, presence or licensing of brokers (the foregoing, “Legal Requirements”).

3. Ad Placement. List ALL FOR SALE items in the “Want Ads” system. You are not to list items for sale in any other part of the site. Find the proper category for your item and list it there. You are not to use other forums, such as State forums, General Non-Glocking, General Glocking, or Non-Glock Firearms, to sell anything. This also pertains to items you seek that are “Wanted to Buy.” Put these ads in the “Wanted to Buy” section in the Want Ads area ONLY. Finally, DO NOT post a link to any For Sale ads you may have on other boards, such as GunBroker, GunsAmerica, Ebay, or similar sites, in any posts in the forums or in your signature.

4. Release. You acknowledge and agree that GlockTalk does not take title to or possession of any Item being sold on the Site, and we are not a principal in any Classified Transactions on the Site, nor are we your agent or an agent of any seller or other buyer. Because we are not and cannot be involved in dealings between GlockTalk users, in the event that you have a dispute with another user (whether a buyer or seller), you hereby release GlockTalk, our directors, officers, employees and agents from and against any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential, and including attorneys’ fees) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

5. Privacy. While GlockTalk is not a party to any Classified Transaction initiated, furthered, or completed on its Site, GlockTalk reserves the right to:

  1. a. Disclose the details of any Classified Transaction, including without limitation relevant Postings, Private Messages, E-mails, or other communications to the relevant authorities as per paragraph 16 of this Agreement; and
  2. b. Remove any Classified Ad, without cause or notice to user, from the Site.

GlockTalk will not necessarily send a confirmation regarding the removal/disabling.

2. If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any User Submission or other content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act by providing our Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C 512(c)(3) for further detail):

  3. c. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material;
  4. d. Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail;
  5. e. A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
  6. f. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

3. Agent. GlockTalk's designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement may be contacted through dmca@glocktalk.com. For clarity, only DMCA notices should go to the Copyright Agent; any other feedback, comments, reports of abuse, requests for technical support, and other communications should be directed to GlockTalk customer service through customerservice@glocktalk.com. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section your DMCA notice may not be valid.

3. Counter-Notice. If you believe that your User Submission that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content in your User Submission, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:

  1. a. Your physical or electronic signature;
  2. b. Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
  3. c. A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and
  4. d. Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Oakland County, Michigan, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, GlockTalk may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at GlockTalk's sole discretion.

Glock Talk will act on all abuse reports and confront offending users. Users found to be guilty of our user agreement or any infringement will either receive a warning or be removed from the community, with sole discretion as to handling of the infraction remaining with GlockTalk.

XVII. Posting Guidelines - GlockTalk Community Guidelines.

Respect the GlockTalk Community

Every community feature on GlockTalk involves a certain level of trust. We trust you to be responsible, and thousands of other users respect that trust. Please be one of them.

Posting Rules

1. No illegal content.

2. No foul language. We are trying to maintain a familt environment and such language is not appropriate or necessary. This includes posting curse words that are deliberately misspelled or have special characters inserted in them to avoid the bad word filter.

3. No rude or abusive language allowed, including flame wars. We do not allow GlockTalk to be used to deliberately trash, denigrate, or malign another forum or site. DO NOT drag your board wars over to this site or attempt to use this site as a staging point to start trouble on other sites.

4. GlockTalk is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. Posts with sexually suggestive or explicit content are not allowed. That includes links to sites with such content. Similarly, Cheesecake/Beefcake threads and posts are not allowed here. If you want to look at, or post, pictures of scantily clad women or men, please do so elsewhere. This is not the place for it.

5. Do not post or link to content containing graphic depictions of serious injury or death to people or animals. Any User Submission showing or describing someone or an animal being physically hurt, attacked, or humiliated will not be tolerated on GlockTalk.

6. We encourage free speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view. But, we don't permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity). Posts with racist or extremist comments or content are not allowed. This includes links to sites with such content.

7. Posts concerning politics, civil liberties issues, Law Enforcement issues and/or religion should be confined to the forums we have dedicated to those topics. Please do not argue these topics elsewhere on the site.

8. Actions like predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, intimidation, invading privacy, revealing other people’s personal information, and inciting others to commit violent acts, crimes, or to violate the Terms of Use are taken very seriously at GlockTalk. Anyone caught doing these activities may be permanently banned from GlockTalk and may be reported to law enforcement.

9. Unsolicited posts by companies and/or individuals promoting themselves, a website, or a product are not allowed. Please email advertising@glocktalk.com for information on how to become a site sponsor.

10. Do not reopen threads pertaining to subjects that have been previously closed.

11. Do not post the same or similar thread in multiple forums. Select the forum best suited for the topic and post it there. Multiple postings with the same subject matter by the same member will not be allowed, and GlockTalk reserves the right to delete or move such postings at its sole discretion.

12. We do not allow anyone to be registered under more than ONE member name. There is absolutely NO reason to have an extra account unless it is used for trolling purposes. If you are found to have more than one account, you will risk losing ALL of your accounts.

13. Avatars of your own choosing are allowed for “Senior Members”, as long as they are tasteful in content, and conform to the rules above. Avatars should be used to express your likes, loves, and individuality, but there are limits. The Administrators and Moderators DO NOT want members using the avatar system to make bigoted personal, religious, or political statements. The avatar may not include scantily-clad, provocative pictures of women/men.

14. Signature lines fall under the same rules as your avatars. If your signature line doesn't meet the above rules, it is not allowed.

15. All the same rules listed above apply to the posting of pictures and videos. This includes content with language that would normally be censored by our bad word filter, if it were typed out. This also includes using videos for self-promotion, whether you are promoting yourself, your products, or your videos themselves.

Everyone is welcome to hang out here and express their opinions, but we expect anyone that chooses to post to do so within the confines of the posting rules above. GlockTalk reserves the right to close, edit, or remove any User Submission, posting, or thread that violates the rules listed here, or for any other reason, at the sole discretion of GlockTalk. Anyone that repeatedly violates the rules will not be allowed to participate here. You can disagree with someone, just do so like an adult.

Above all else, we expect people to be treated with RESPECT!

Thank you.
