User name and activities

You may view the website at (“the website”) without registering as a user. If you register as a user you will have disclosed personal information to Glass Onion Limited and we will be able to identify you from that information.

If you register with Glass Onion Limited, you will be asked to provide a user name and this user name will be displayed on our website, for example, on bulletin boards where you post contributions. Your username will therefore be available to the public. We recommend that you choose an anonymous user name rather than a user name which allows third parties to identify you.

Unless you consent, we will not give your actual name, or contact details to other users. However, if you make this information publicly available, other members and third parties may use this information to contact you. We have no control over such contact.

Whilst we will make all reasonable endeavours to enable you to edit, amend or remove contributions, you should be aware that you may not be able to remove any contributions which you post to the website once they have been posted.
