Xerox Corporation Community

Terms of Service

(Last updated January 12, 2015) 

 

IMPORTANT -- PLEASE READ: Following are the Terms of Service for the Xerox Corporation (“Xerox”) Community. Use of the Xerox Community Forum indicates you accept these terms. If you do not accept these terms, do not use the Xerox Community Forum.

 

These Terms of Service, the Xerox Website Terms of Use (http://www.xerox.com/about-xerox/website-terms-of-use/enus.html ) and Xerox Privacy Policy (http://www.xerox.com/about-xerox/privacy-policy/enus.html), govern your use of the Xerox Community Forum. These Terms of Service describe the proper kinds of conduct and prohibited uses of the Xerox Community Forum. These terms are not exhaustive and Xerox reserves the right to modify them at any time, effective upon posting of the modified terms on the Community Forum. By registering as a user or using the Community Forum, you agree to abide by these terms as modified from time to time. Any violation of these terms may result in the suspension or termination of your right to access the forum.

 

 

Purpose

 

The Xerox Community Forum is a peer-to-peer support channel for Xerox products and services.   We welcome all users as long as they observe the community rules of conduct set forth in these Terms of Service.

 

The Xerox Forum is not intended to provide a means for obtaining Xerox-provided support and does not replace the standard processes for requesting onsite service. When contacting Xerox for support, you may be required to provide proof of a service contract or other product entitlement prior to receiving support or service.

 

Conduct

 

You may not use your registration membership (or allow anyone else to use your registration membership) to post or transmit:

 

  1. Content that is abusive, vulgar, obscene, hateful, fraudulent, or that discloses private or personal matters concerning any person. This includes language, information, or images.
  2. Content that is threatening, defamatory or abusive, either between forum members or directed towards any individual, including a moderator, or a Xerox employee or manager.
  3. “Rants,” “slams,” or legal threats against Xerox or another company or competitor.
  4. Bigoted, hateful, or racially offensive comments.
  5. Political or religious statements or commentary.
  6. Spam and/or other self-serving material.

  7. Off-topic comments not related to Xerox products and services.
  8. Any material that you don't have the right to transmit under law (such as copyright, trade secret, or securities) or under contractual or fiduciary relationships (such as nondisclosure agreements).
  9. Language that promotes illegal activity or discusses illegal activities with the intent to commit them. This includes any message that solicits or promotes the use of an illegal substance.
  10.  Advertising, promotional materials, or other forms of solicitation including chain letters, pyramid schemes, class action suits, or charitable appeals; this includes advertising links in signatures.
  11.  Any file or link to a file that contains viruses, corrupted files, "Trojan Horses," or any other contaminating or destructive features that may damage someone else's computer.
  12.  Duplicate posts, spam messages, or posts repeated excessively on one or more boards.
  13.  Messages designed to evade profanity or other filters.
  14.  Personal phone numbers or addresses (to protect privacy).
  15.  Personal email addresses, private information such as social security numbers, or other contact information that is not your own, including, but not limited to a Xerox employee’s email addresses.
  16.  Hyperlinks that lead to sites that violate any of the forum guidelines.
  17.  Any message that impersonates another person or affiliation with an entity, including, but not limited to, Xerox.

In addition, our guidelines do not permit you to:

  1. Intentionally violate any other applicable law or regulation while accessing and using our site.
  2. Interfere in any way with the operations in the forum or with a fellow user’s message box, including but not limited to mail or "post" bombing, news bombing, other flooding techniques, deliberate attempts to overload a system and broadcast attacks, or attempts to avoid messaging blocking.
  3. Evading bans or suspensions or otherwise disregarding directions from moderators or administrators.

 

Moderators may at any time and without prior notice remove any posted message or thread, delete words that violate these guidelines from posted messages,

remove any content deemed irrelevant, inappropriate or overly self-promotional
