Welcome to the IDC Community! We appreciate your participation in our discussion forums, blogs, polls, and other interactive areas of the site.
Your participation in the IDC Community, including any comments, or other materials you post to our site ("your posts"), is governed by the standards described in this document. Please familiarize yourself with them. By posting on our site, you indicate that you accept our IDC Community Standards.
If we believe you have violated these policies, we may take whatever action we consider appropriate, including but not limited to removing the material in question or, in the case of severe or repeat violations, revoking your posting privileges or terminating your membership. Our decisions are final.
If you believe another user has violated these standards, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, and our moderators will review your report. This is a manual process, so please remember that we may not be able to edit or respond to your e-mail immediately.
Additional Requirement for Vendors
We welcome vendor participation in our IDC Community. Vendor representatives are required to disclose their affiliation when posting about their company's or their competitors' products. We may delete posts that we believe are part of a campaign by a company or its marketing or public relations agencies to promote the company's products or to disparage its competitors or their products.Although we actively monitor postings, we are not responsible for the content of any posts other than our own. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any post, and if you decide to take action as the result of information posted in the community areas, you are acting at your own risk. Each post expresses the views of the author of that particular post, not necessarily the views of IDC, the administrator or moderator of this community, or any entity associated with this Web site.
