Use of Our Forums and Social Media Groups

Our forums and social media groups are open to all designers and publishers. It is expected that all users, regardless of age, will act in a mature and respectful fashion. Each member is responsible for only his or her own posts. If another member breaks rules, you may ignore them or report the problem to the moderators, but you may not use it as an excuse to break rules yourself. Volunteer moderators help us manage the forums and enforce the forum rules. The moderators cannot read every message, so they rely on members to report problem posts that they encounter. The point of moderation is not to limit discussion, to promote or suppress points of view, or to further any other secret agenda. The goal of moderation is to keep the forums enjoyable and free from problems that detract from the experiences of our users. The following offenses can result in temporary forum suspensions or permanent bans: (a) personal insults; (b) harassment; (c) posting someone's personal information without their consent, or "doxxing"; (d) threats; or (e) posting obscene, racist, vulgar, sexually-oriented, deceitful, hateful, threatening, or otherwise illegal material.

Limitation of Liability

In no event will we be liable for any incidental damages, consequential damages, special damages, punitive, statutory, indirect damages, loss of profits, loss of revenues, or loss of use, even if informed about the possibility of such damages. Our liability in any case for damages arising out of or related to this Agreement cannot exceed the amount you have paid to us under this Agreement. To the extent permitted by applicable law, these limitations and exclusions will apply regardless of whether liability arises from breach of contract, warranty, tort (including negligence), by operation of law, or otherwise. Finally, we are not liable for the actions or inactions of PSD volunteers.


You will hold PSD and its officers, directors, agents, employees, and volunteers harmless from liability resulting from infringement or your membership within PSD.
