Supporting good practice in drug and alcohol treatment

Terms of Service for the SMMGP Forums

Please note that these Forums are for issues relating to the development of primary care based treatment in the UK. Postings should be relevant to this debate and people should avoid reference to personal therapy and treatment issues unless directly related to the topic at hand.

Considering the real-time nature of this bulletin board, it is impossible for us to review messages prior to posting or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that whilst we actively monitor the contents of posted messages, we are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this community or any entity associated with this community. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by e-mail. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages. We will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this software service to post any material which is knowingly false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violative of any law. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this bulletin board.

Although this bulletin board does not and cannot review in advance the messages posted and is not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we at this community reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless this community, Infopop Corporation, Inc. (the makers of the bulletin board software), and their agents with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).

We reserve the right to suspend accounts temporarily or permanently at our discretion.

We at this Community also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.

Please note that advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are inappropriate in this community.

COOKIE POLICY

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a technology for remembering information between web pages. Because of cookies your web browser can remember you are logged in to a web site, have put items in a shopping basket, have visited a site before, or what your personal preferences are. Most web sites use cookies of some sort, and have been doing so for many years.

In reality, a cookie is a small text file which is stored by the user's web browser. The cookie only contains data, not code, so it can't contain a virus or spyware. This doesn't mean that all cookies are harmless in intent, but they can only ever store information.

See www.allaboutcookies.org for more information about cookies.

What cookies do we use?

The cookies we use on the main SMMGP web site are just "analytical" cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of site visitors and to see how these visitors move around the site when they're using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works e.g. by making sure visitors are finding the information they need as easily as possible. If you would like to know more about these cookies, please see the Google Analytics web site.

What about the SMMGP Forums?

The SMMGP Forums site also uses four Google Analytics cookies, the same as the main SMMGP web site.

In addition it uses a number of other cookies to keep track of information such as whether or not a visitor is logged in. Without these cookies it would not be possible for the Forums to operate.
