FORUM AND COMMUNICATIONS GUIDELINES
These guidelines are in addition to our our “Rules and Etiquette” which you can read by clicking here.
The Forum is a very popular feature of the site and although the team strongly believes in allowing the community that has formed around the site to grow and develop in its own way, there are a few simple rules, regulations and procedures you should be aware of when posting. Most posts will probably never run foul of these anyway, but we’re quite serious about them nonetheless.
We are not responsible for comments posted on all sites by our readers. We will however attempt to remove or edit posts which are deemed to contain racist or homophobic remarks, personal abuse, libel, copyrighted material, excessive swearing, references to illegal activities and requests for CD keys or pirated software.
Obviously conversations can get heated on the forum, but we’d ask users to hold back from personal insults. Respond to the post, don’t attack the poster.
Our staff members regularly monitor the discussion threads to ensure they stay lively, interesting, vaguely relevant and fun. However, the sheer volume of traffic on our forums and comment threads means that we don’t always manage to read every post on the sites. If you discover a post which you believe contravenes the sites guidelines please notify a moderator with details of the page you found it on and we will make reasonable endeavors to remove the post within a reasonable time.
Users who repeatedly post inflammatory (“troll”) topics or contravene the site posting guidelines will find their posts removed and eventually their user account removed. We reserve the right to remove posting privileges from any account at any time. In general the staff will endeavour to issue warnings before a user account is removed or suspended, however, in the instance of severe transgressions, this action may be taken without any prior warning.
We will remove posts that contain racist or homophobic remarks, personal abuse, libel, copyrighted material, references to illegal activities and requests for CD keys or pirated software.

If you spot a post on the forum that breaks our comments policy then please contact us and we will deal with it.
If your thread is deleted then look back and see if you’ve broken any of these rules or look for a thread on a similar topic. If you post a “Why was my thread deleted?” thread, it will be deleted without warning.
Registering multiple accounts could result in bans for some or all of the accounts in question. One person, one account.
As long as you do not insult people, keep the discussion relevant and don’t breach the Terms and guidelines, you will not have to worry about being moderated.
SUPPLY OF PRODUCTS
LightOnConspiracies is an online service that facilitates the supply of Products. You should understand that by ordering any of our Products, you agree to be bound by the Terms.
By placing an order through our site, you warrant that:
♦ you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and
♦ you are at least 18 years old
After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (“Dispatch Confirmation”). The contract between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel a Contract at any time within seven working days, beginning on the day after you received the Products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our refunds policy.
To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing. You must also return the Products to us as soon as reasonably practicable, and at your own cost. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within a reasonable time of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
The Products will be your responsibility from the time of delivery.
Product prices and delivery charges are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably recognised by you as an error, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card. We accept payment with credit and debit card payments, post and fax orders and payment by bank transfer. These options are available at the end of the checkout process. The Products will be dispatched once we have received payment.
If you return a Product to us because:
♦ you have cancelled the Contract between us within the seven-day cooling-off period we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day on which you gave us notice of cancellation. In this case, we will refund the price of the Product in full, and any applicable delivery charges. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us; and
♦ for any other reason, we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund. We will refund the price of a defective Product in full, any applicable delivery charges and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
We warrant to you that any Product purchased from us through LightOnConspiracies will, on delivery conform with its description, be of satisfactory quality, and be reasonably fit for all the purposes for which products of that kind are commonly supplied.
