Forums Guidelines
Welcome to the Malwarebytes Forums. Please read these guidelines carefully because they govern your use of our Forums. By registering or using our Forums, you agree to follow these Guidelines and are bound to the following additional terms and policies:

If you don’t agree to these Terms, do not use or register for the Forums. If you are accessing and using the Forums on behalf of a company (such as your employer) or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to these Terms. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that company or other legal entity.

Changes to Guidelines
We may modify the Guidelines at any time, at our sole discretion. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the modified Guidelines on the Forums or through other communications. It’s important that you review the Guidelines from time to time because if you continue to use the Forums after we have posted modified Guidelines on the Forums, you are indicating to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Guidelines. If you don’t agree to be bound by the modified Guidelines, then you can’t use the Forums anymore. Because our Forums are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Forums, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion.

Eligibility for the Forums
You may use the Services only if you are 18 years or older and capable of forming a binding contract with Malwarebytes and are not barred from using the Services under applicable law.

Registration and Your Information
If you want to use the Forums, you’ll have to create an account (“Account”). You can do this via the Forums website. It’s important that you provide us with accurate, complete and up-to-date information and you agree to update such information, as needed, to keep it accurate, complete and up-to-date. If you don’t, we might have to suspend or terminate your use of the Services. You agree that you won’t disclose your Account password to anyone and you’ll notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account. You’re responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them.

Forums Content Guidelines
The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of the forums community, or the company that manages the Forums. Malwarebytes and its 3rd party partners do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message posted by a user of the forums. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to report the content using the Report Content feature or by private messaging a Moderator or Administrator.

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

While the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

Piracy Guidelines
Malwarebytes does not condone nor support piracy in any shape or form. Any discussion topics that ask for help with pirating software, circumventing copy protection, or any other illegal activities related to copy righted content in any form will be closed and locked. If you feel this is ever done in error, please report the post or PM an Administrator.
As a reminder, using pirated software or utilities that allows one to pirate software (e.g. cracks, key generators, registration/license removal, redirection, or workaround utilities, etc.) is not a safe practice and can lead to malware infection, ransomware attack, or even legal action. Because of these risks, we always recommend that you remove any pirated software or pirating utilities before asking for support on our forums in order to improve our ability to best support you and to help protect yourself and your data from malware or other piracy related consequences.

Anti-Spamming Guidelines
You agree you will not engage in any sort of spamming on the Forums in any manner. This includes but is not limited to comment spam (injecting a comment into a thread for the purpose of placing a link back to a website offering the same services offered here; or services totally unrelated to this website), the use of signature links deemed to be for the sole purpose of increasing web traffic to a site of interest by the member, spam sent via private message, or any combination of the previous examples.

Signature, Images, and Code Injection Guidelines
Images or code in signatures or posts, such as HTML or java scripts that might collect any information from other users, are not allowed. If found, they will be removed by an administrator or moderator and the user will be warned. A second offense will result in being deactivated and banned.

Engaging in any of the aforementioned activities may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed).

You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent (except where we are legally required) the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.
