IG Whispers Terms & Conditions


IG Whispers is all about Italian Greyhounds. Discussion is welcome. Bashing and personal attacks will not be tolerated. Keep it positive & civil ... and ENJOY!

This is a moderated forum. If you are concerned with the content of a post within, please send a PM (Private Message) to our Moderator Team and it will be promptly reviewed.

We believe there is always a place for education, but it needs to be just that - Education, with Acceptance, and without Condemnation.

Regardless of who you are, where your IG is from, or anything else, if you are here on IGW we're willing to bet it is because you love your IG and want to share your joy with others! When it comes right down to it, that's all that matters.

__________________________________________


This is a discussion forum, not a classified add paper. If you wish to directly advertise available litters/pups please chose a more appropriate venue. We do not allow blatent advertising of puppies for sale here.
However, if you are a breeder with cute puppy photos or litter pictures, you are welcome to share them. If you just brought home a new family member we're not going to string you up for mentioning your breeder's name in regards to your puppy or IG - in fact, you are invited to share your experience!

IGW believes strongly in the right to free speech, and so long as the person posting does so tastefully and follows the rules, they are entitled to their opinion.


__________________________________________



BREEDER FEEDBACK:

Every Italian Greyhound owner obtained his or her puppy (directly or indirectly) from a breeder, and every Italian Greyhound owner deserves the right to voice their opinion of their breeder should they so choose. IG Owners are allowed to post their feedback on IGW about the breeder from whom they purchased an Italian Greyhound. Feedback can be positive or negative as the owner sees fit, so long as posts are within the board terms and all claims are factual and can be substantiated if disputed by the breeder in question.

No unsubstantiated claims (defamation) will be allowed.

No third-party, or hearsay claims, will be allowed.
In other words, no talking badly about another breeder if you do not have a personal experience to share.

No comments and opinions regarding the breeder in the original claim from outside uninvolved individuals will be allowed.

Any breeder who believes an erroneous, untruthful or unsubstantiated post has been made which impacts their reputation as a breeder is welcome to provide a public response to the buyer's post on the forum.

Grievances and/or concerns progressing beyond a statment by the buyer, and a response from the breeder will be handled by the site administrators. After making a public response, if the breeder feels the original post is still unsubstianted and harmfull to their reputation, the breeder can file a grievance by contacting any of the forum Administration / Moderation team. The status of the investigation will be noted under the post in question. IGW Administrators/Moderators are responsible for the handling of grievances. All moderators assigned to review a claim will be unaffiliated with both buyer and breeder.

In the event a breeder files a grievance, the client of the breeder in question will be contacted and the burden is on the client to prove any statements they have made. If a client can prove his or her claim by whatever means, the post will remain valid, and continue to be posted on our site. If the client cannot provide proof of their claim in one form or another within 72 hours, their post (or portion of the post) will be removed. If it is a matter of opinion, IGW believes strongly in the right to free speech, and so long as the person posting does so tastefully and follows the rules, they are entitled to their opinion.

If the client does provide proof of a claim, the moderators will review and determine if the proof provided is sufficient. If not, the post is removed and a post will be made by the moderator in its place stating that the client was unable to substantiate their claim, so the claim was removed. If the proof is deemed sufficient, the post will remain on our site, and the moderator will add a post to indicate which claim was being disputed, how it was resolved, and the proof that was provided to resolve the dispute and verify the post as accurate.

This policy is in place to allow the right for buyers to share their honest experience, while preventing the often seen "he-said, she-said" accusations and negativity that commonly follow. IGW will allow the right to share feedback about the breeder from whom an IG has been purchased or aquired, but will not tolerate or allow the posts to become negative, spitefull, or bashing.

IGW hopes by setting these terms to provide future Italian Greyhound dog and puppy buyers with feedback from a network of past Italian Greyhound dog and puppy buyers, resulting in information to help in the making of a well informed decision.

UNDERSTAND THIS:
This forum was founded to provide a safe and positive environment in which IG people can freely post photos and updates about their extended family members without fear of "Moderator Nazis" picking apart every word. We do believe in the right to free speech, but in the same breath, we reserve (and will enforce) the right to keep this board CLEAN, CIVIL, RESPECTFUL, COURTEOUS, FUN, and FRIENDLY ... End of Discussion.

If you come as a friend, "Welcome", and enjoy yourself!
If you are a troll looking to spread your negativity, go back to your other boards with like company.
We have a "low tolerance" policy here when it comes to troublemakers. If you are blatantly showing disregard for our terms and just can't resist your desire to bring everyone down with negative posts, you will be warned - Once. If you further insist on continuing to disrupt our friendly forum with trouble, you will be placed on forced moderation with limited forum access, or will be banned from our board.

You agree, by your registration on IGWhispers.com, that you will not use or provide false names and or information to present yourself on this forum. Visitors who chose to disregard these terms and grace our forum with their presence under false names/information will be dealt with accordingly. As we ferret out those who chose to in this manner, they will be made examples of - be warned - if any member is found posting under a false name, that member will be called out publicly, and we will post what information we find about them.

So, on that note, keep it clean, keep it friendly, and above all, HAVE FUN SHARING THE ENJOYMENT THESE WONDERFUL LITTLE DOGS BRING TO OUR LIVES!

Because we value your patronage, we want to address any privacy concerns you may have. To that end, we have set forth our privacy policy for handling the information you share with us online. We want your decision to do business with us to be an informed one.

Collecting Information

When you visit our Website, we may collect information about you that you voluntarily choose to share with us. This identification information may include, but is not limited to, your name, your physical address, your e-mail address, and other details.

What may be less obvious to you is that, when you visit our Website, we may collect data involving your usage through the use of “cookies†(i.e. small text files placed on your computer by a Website), Web server logs, and other Web tools. This technology allows us to customize your online experience, as well as enhance your Internet use with us. We respect your right to privacy and will never release your personal information to any third-party vendors.

The tracking data we collect may include, but is not limited to, the date and time you visit, the time you spend, the Web pages you view, the other Websites you visit, your search queries, and basic information about your computer, such as your Internet Protocol (“IPâ€) address, your domain name, your browser type, and the name of your Internet service provider. You may deactivate cookies if you do not want your browsing to be tracked, but doing so may hinder your online experience.

When visiting our Website, you may be directed, through hyperlinks, to other Websites that are beyond our control. This Privacy Policy does not cover the collection of information by those other companies and Websites. Although we encourage third parties to provide their own privacy policies, we are not responsible for their activities, such as how they handle the information they collect online.


Using Information Collected

We primarily use the identification information you voluntarily share with us to customize your online experience and to do what you have asked of us. We also use your identification information to tell you about our updates and services, but you may instruct us not to send communications to you by selecting the appropriate options in your Forum Control Panel. On occasion, we use your identification information to validate your identity. As for usage tracking data, we primarily use that information to operate and improve our Website, and to further our ranking and marketing efforts.

As a general rule, we do not share your information with unaffiliated third parties. We may, however, share your information with others to the extent necessary to fulfill your requests. We will not share your information with unaffiliated third parties for direct marketing purposes. We reserve the right to disclose your information under limited circumstances, such as to cooperate with law enforcement or judicial authorities as required by law or legal process, to protect our own legal rights, or to protect the public good.

Whenever you are online, you run the risk that the information you give out will fall into the wrong hands. Although we implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices to safeguard your privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you provide to us. We accept no responsibility or liability for the activities of third parties.

Updating Information

If you would like to review the information about you that we have collected through our Website, or to change that information, you can make those changes by updating or modifying your Personal Profile in our forum, or by contacting us directly via e-mail. We may require that you verify your identity before we process your request.

Updating Our Privacy Policy

We may, from time to time, change our Privacy Policy. We will notify you of any changes by posting our updated Privacy Policy on our Website and inserting a new “Effective Date.â€
