Your privacy is paramount to us. We do not transmit, sell, rent or otherwise disseminate your personal information to third parties for any purpose without your approval.

Post your Request for Quote in the appropriate section(s), please make your post as clear as possible and include as much info as possible.

Please do not double post the same RFQ in multiple forum sections.

You may upload any pertinent drawing file etc as long as they are not copyright materials.

The use of inappropriate or offensive language is not permitted in these forums. Inappropriate or offensive language includes, but is not limited to, any language or content that is sexually oriented, sexually suggestive or abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, profane, hateful, or that contains racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable material of any kind. We ask that you please be considerate to other members in the forums when posting your messages.

RFQ Work members are not permitted to harass or "flame" other members or company. Please do not post or transmit any unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, profane, hateful, racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable material of any kind, including, but not limited to, any material which encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, violate the rights of others, or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national or international law. Please note that this also includes the posting of taunts on a forum solely for the purpose of demeaning that forums topic and/or members.

It is illegal to post any content that is copyrighted or trademarked, unless you hold the copyright or trademark. Any material protected by copyright may not be posted in the message boards without the expressed permission of the author or owner of the copyright on that material. This includes reproducing the full text of news stories, articles, etc. It is acceptable to provide a link to copyrighted material, to post brief excerpts, or to paraphrase other works, though we do strongly encourage you to cite the original source whenever possible.

This community forum is a place for ideas and constructive participation, and not a place to violate any laws or to discuss illegal activities. This type of activity includes, but is not limited to, advocating or asking for information regarding software piracy or unauthorized emulators of software or hardware, sharing or distributing viruses, licenses, registration information, software keys, "cracks," or other information designed to do harm to or allow unlawful access to any computer hardware, software, networks, or any other systems. Please refrain from posting this kind of message.

This is a forum of ideas, so advertisements are not allowed in this venue. A member may answer another members question about their occupation or business; however, if you are a rep, manufacturer, distributor or retailer for any product you cannot solicit, offer, promote, or market this product in the discussion forums. Offering support or technical answers for the item being discussed is permitted based on the criteria listed above. Please seek out the advertising information RFQ Work has available to promote your products.

Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly in one or multiple forums, is prohibited. Spamming will also be defined as posting advertisements in the general discussion forums for products for sale in the swap shop.

No posting auction or classifides in the forums please. No asking for bids or words that would lead the buyer to assume you are having an auction. No ads linking to external auction sites allowed in the for sale or discussion forums.

Forum members are allowed to embed images in their messages by linking to an image that exists on another site or downloading it from their computers hard drive. In addition to the copyright restrictions mentioned above, users should also refrain from embedding any images of a sexual or offensive nature. Any links to clearly offensive or pornographic materials will be removed immediately at the moderators’ discretion.

Do not use image tags to display pictures in a thread if you don't own, control, have permission, or are responsible for the server on which the images are hosted. Posting links to images is fine. We don't want to use up other people's bandwidth.

Our policy on linking to other web sites is pretty simple. Members may link to any other site that provides information that helps answer another members question or is just of general interest to members of that particular forum.
The only type of linking (besides porn and spam, of course) that will not be allowed on our site is when members solicit people to leave our site and join a competing service. That's just common sense. However, people are always welcome to link to any on-line resource, whether it's on our site or any other site, in order to share useful information with fellow members.

You may not provide information in the signature or avatar that advertises commercial entities or competing websites. Links to business web sites are permitted as long as they are not overtly commercial or promotional in nature. Any signature or avatar clearly offensive or pornographic in materials will be removed immediately at management’s discretion. No other type of BB code may be used only links.

RFQ Work reserves the right at its sole discretion to restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to any part of these forums. If you violate any of the rules stated in this document or any other service terms documents, a moderator will remove the offending message. It is your responsibility to maintain a current, valid email address in the registration information so that RFQ Works management can contact you in the event of a policy violation. Any member, who consistently and purposefully violates our policies will at the administrators’ discretion, be denied access to these forums for a period of 1 to 30 days depending on the nature of the violation. Any member who refuses to comply with the policies of these forums will be banned permanently. Joining of this site is a privilege and not a right.

Members of these forums are solely responsible for all content that they post on our site. RFQ Work shall have the right, but not the obligation, to correct any errors or omissions in any Content, as it may determine in its sole discretion. RFQ Work further reserves the right to delete or remove any user content from the site and to deny the access of any member to all or part of this site, at any time for any reason without prior notice or liability.

All forum rules apply to private messaging. All rules that are broken via private messaging will be dealt with in the same fashion as if they were posted on the forum itself.

If a post breaks one of the above rules your post will be deleted, meaning that the post is removed from view of all users. Doing so allows the post to be deleted or edited to conform to the rules and than restored for all to see once again.

RFQ Work is dedicated to developing and maintaining a friendly on-line community, where members of all ages and backgrounds feel relaxed and comfortable. Like any community, RFQ Work has certain standards. When members join our forums, they agree to abide by these rules. To remain a part of the RFQ Work community, members must be considerate to others. Repeated violations of these standards may result in a member being banned from entry or participation in community forums. All information contain on RFQ Work, becomes sole property of RFQwork.com.
