6A. Wild Community Pages.

A Wild Community Page is a page created for an individual, organisation, brand or other entity (place or organisation). It may be accessed by registered and non-register users to the Wild Site.

Only authorised representatives may administer a Page for a brand, entity (place or organization), or public figure. Any registered user may create a Page to express support for or interest in a brand, entity (place or organisation), or public figure, provided that it is not likely to be confused with an official Page or violate someone's rights. Content posted to a Page is public and viewable by everyone who can see the Page.

Page names must accurately reflect Page content. We may remove administrative rights or require you to change the Page name for any Page that fails to meet this requirement.

Page names must:

  1. not consist solely of generic terms (e.g., “beer” or “pizza”);
  2. use proper, grammatically correct capitalization and may not include all capitals, except for acronyms;
  3. not include character symbols, such as excessive punctuation and trademark designations; and
  4. not include superfluous descriptions or unnecessary qualifiers.

If you collect content and information directly from users, you will make it clear that you (and not Wild Times Futures Ltd) are collecting it, and you will provide notice about and obtain user consent for your use of the content and information that you collect. Regardless of how you obtain content and information from users, you are responsible for securing all necessary permissions to reuse their content and information. You will not collect users' content or information, or otherwise access the Wild Site, using automated means (such as harvesting bots, robots, spiders, or scrapers) without our permission.

You are responsible for ensuring that any offers or promotions on your Wild Community Page comply with these terms and all applicable laws, rules and regulations. Offers and promotions are subject to many regulations (such as lotteries, alcohol discounts and offers marketed to minors) and if you are not certain that your offer or promotion complies with applicable law, consult with an expert. All offers and promotions on a Wild Community Page must include an acknowledgment that the promotion or offer is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Wild Times Futures Ltd.

By creating and editing a Wild Community Page you confirm and provide a warranty that the content on your Page complies with these terms and does not breach any applicable laws, rules and regulations. Wild Times Futures Ltd reserves the right to reject or remove a Wild Community Page for any reason without notice.

7. Apps.

You may download certain Wild Times Futures Ltd apps ("Apps") either from Wild Sites or from third party app stores or shops.
