User Content Guidelines
The Guidelines: CocoaJoe has created, or may create in the future, certain areas, such as comments, ratings, message boards and chat rooms, within the Website where members can upload and share their thoughts, comments, pictures, videos and the like with other registered users (collectively, “Forums”). CocoaJoe believes this open environment enriches the online experience for those who share the same interest in chocolate and cocoa products. To help ensure that the text, graphics, software, music, sound, photographs, videos, messages, posts, data, information, or other materials posted by members (collectively, the “User Content”) is beneficial for the greater community, CocoaJoe has established some basic rules for everyone to follow in the form of these User Content guidelines (the “Guidelines”).
Pre-Moderation: CocoaJoe’s policy for this Website is to pre-moderate User Content unless otherwise expressly stated on the Website with respect to specific forums or other areas where user generated content is posted. Pre-moderation means that the User Content will not be posted until an administrator has reviewed it and determined that the User Content is suitable for posting to the Forum. This process also means that User Content submitted for posting will not be posted in real time. CocoaJoe will endeavor to review User Content within two business days following its submission. User Content that is deemed unsuitable for the Forum or Website may never be posted.
