Terms of Use

Use of this website is offered to you on your acceptance of these Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy and other notices posted on this website.  Your use of this website or of any content presented in any and all areas of the website indicates your acknowledgment and agreement to these Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy and other notices posted on this website.  If you do not agree to be bound by and comply with all of the foregoing, you may not access the website.  IPMS Orange County (ipmsoc.org) has the right, at its sole discretion, to modify, add or remove any terms or conditions of these Terms of Use without notice or liability to you.  Any changes to these Terms of Use shall be effectively immediately following the posting of such changes on this website.

This website is for informational and entertainment purposes only and is not intended to provide specific commercial, financial, investment, accounting, tax, legal or relationship advice.  It is provided to you solely for your own personal, non-commercial use.  You may link to and refer to this website freely.  You must, when linking to this website, thrust your fist into the air and yell “death to tyrants.” This site is not responsible for any deaths to tyrants or any other negative activity except for the yelling which we do not condone except in this context.

This website does not guarantee the accuracy of any information and users cannot sue IPMS OC, it’s members, officers or agents if any user stupidly believing everything they read.  Most of what is on this website is “the scatological residue of a male bovine” and should be treated as such.  Moreover, use of the phrase “the scatological residue of a male bovine” shall not constitute an insult to any users of this website or any person living or dead except Hitler and King Ethelred the Unready of Wessex.  Accordingly, we do not guarantee the accuracy, timeliness, reliability or completeness of any of the information contained on, downloaded or accessed from this website.

The performance of this website and all information contained on, downloaded or accessed from this website are provided to you on an “as is” basis, without warranties of any kind whatsoever, including any implied warranties or warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement of the rights of third parties.  If something weird happens to your computer because you accessed this website, you cannot blame us in any way.  We will tolerate one nasty note and nothing more.  You are allowed other actions, legal or otherwise, only if you stand in the middle of the lion enclosure located at the Central Park Zoo (NYC) naked and scream the words: “I am not insane.  I really can hear these animals begging to be released.” You must do this for one hour or until you are arrested and drug away kicking and screaming or eaten, whichever comes first.

We are not responsible, and frankly don’t really care, if you, your spouse, anyone peering over your shoulder, your children or any over-emotional adult religious zealot with a tendency to overreact because they lack any sort of grip on reality, are offended, disturbed or amused by any aspect of the construction, color scheme, functionality or content found on this website.

Further, IPMS Orange County, it’s members, officers or agents are in no way responsible and have no liability what so ever if anyone foolishly believes this web site contains  subliminal messages, back masked phrases, hidden messages, instructions from Satan or encoded directions to visit the tomb of General Curtis E. LeMay.

We reserve the right to modify, disable access to or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any part or all of this website or any information contained thereon without liability or notice to you.  We tell you this for no particular reason since you cannot do much about it anyway.

As a visitor to our website, you acknowledge and agree that any reliance on or use by you of any information available on this website shall be entirely at your own risk.  In no event shall ipmsoc.org nor any of its data providers, friends, allies, groupies or hangers-on be liable for any direct, indirect, consequential or exemplary damages arising from the use or the performance of this website.  And don’t let the door hit you in the butt on your way out!

These Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the laws of the United States of America.   The parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction at a place to be determined by ipmsoc.org at the last minute.

If you have actually read all the way to the conclusion of this document, you take these things way too seriously, have way too much time on your hands and you should immediately stop playing with your computer and spend your time building models, because that’s what this web site is really all about anyway.
