Invasion of Privacy by BB moderators on this site?

Has anyone noticed that periodically, signatures are amended? This is not done by the registered owner but by moderators. No permission has been granted for such an alteration. Surely this is an invasion of privacy?  Has a criminal offence been committed and how would a member proceed?

Hi

 

Thank you for raising your concerns it is highly valued!

 

I recommend reading the Terms and Conditions of Use

 

7. Forum Moderators

 

Forum moderators may be used by RIM to facilitate communication and provide assistance to you in using the Site. The moderators will have the same rights as RIM under these Terms and Conditions of Use, including without limitation, the right to: (a) enforce these Terms and Conditions; (b) monitor your use of the Site; (c) terminate your use of the Site; (d) make authorizations or exercise discretion relating to the Site; or (e) collect, process, transmit, use, communicate, disclose, edit, refuse to post or remove any information or materials you submit to the Site. By registering, accessing, browsing and/or using the Site, you acknowledge and consent to the rights of moderators described in this Section 7.

 

We only edit something out of a post or a users signature or remove a post/thread/topic only if there is a cause for concern, I.E. Spam links or personal information or anything else that is in violation of the Community Guidelines and Terms and Conditions of Use

 

There is no cause for concern by the Moderation Team regarding Privacy and no criminal act has been carried out by a member of the Moderation Team as stated in Section 7

 

I hope this clears things up for you Smiley Happy

Additionally, if you feel a "criminal" offense has occurred, you'd contact your local law enforcement agency. or your attorney, likewise should it be a civil offense. I certainly wouldn't recommend asking for legal advice in this forum.

Re: Invasion of Privacy by BB moderators on this site?

Have you ever used a forum before this one? You've got 150 posts here so you post fairly often. Moderator teams are common on ALL forums and the moderators here are very conservative in their edits, in my opinion. I don't think I've ever seen them edit something without adding in red "removed to conform to terms and conditions" or something of that nature.

As JSanders eluded to, if there were any activity that wasn't above board, posting here would do no good and would have probably been removed with no mention. The fact that it was left for others to read confirms everything is in compliance with terms and conditions of the forums.
