To that end, we have provided the following rules for use of our site which you must accept in order to register an account or use any services we provide. These rules are subject to change, and it is your responsibility to keep apprised of such changes.


1. Future Fleets is a Game, Not a Business

The site does not make any money whatsoever, and, should any money ever be derived from this site, it will not be used for any purpose other than maintaining this website and its services. We agree to never charge our users for use of our site, but reserve the right to solicit donations and/or utilize limited advertising in order to pay for site hosting, should the price ever become burdensome.

Furthermore, as a guest on our site, you agree that you do not own your account, nor do you own any items, rewards, locations, currencies, services, or any other object, entity, or idea used on this site as part of the game or services we provide. You agree not to try to buy and/or sell any aspect of this site whatsoever, including the currencies, simulations, and various "items" and "components" used in-game. We will delete the accounts of any users found to violate these or any other rules on our site, and we reserve the right to pursue legal action in the event it is deemed absolutely necessary.

a) Any information submitted to the site or its administrators by the site's users for display or storage can be used on this site however the site's administrators see fit. That includes mission posts, storylines, personal logs, ideas, designs, templates, schematics, deck listings, and all related concepts.

You must agree to abide by all laws governing said content in your jurisdiction, and you must agree not to infringe upon the intellectual properties of others while using this site.

b) We acknowledge that many of the simulations on our site were created by their respective owners prior to their registration here or as part of it, and as such, we agree to respect their rights of ownership insofar as they to not infringe upon the rights of other users, or upon the rules of this site (specifically, Section 1 above). Any simulations created by Future Fleets remain the property of Future Fleets unless an agreement is reached to transfer administrative and intellectual rights to a particular user or group of users solely within the context of this site. Any simulations which come to Future Fleets retain the rights to ownership of the simulation, itself, and any content or characters existing prior to joining Future Fleets. However, by joining this site, you must agree to allow your simulation, characters, and any storylines posted here to become part of the site's continuity and, potentially, the continuity of other simulations.

c) Any other content submitted to this site or its administrators, especially in the context of improving the site or adding functionality to it, becomes the property of this site and can be used by Future Fleets and its administrators freely from that point on within the context of running and/or improving this site and progressing any related storylines. This includes, but is not limited to, bug or security fixes, graphics, code, database updates or changes, stories, ideas, and concepts.

d) We acknowledge that CBS Studios owns the rights to Star Trek™ and all related names, logos, images, insignia, and the like, and we further acknowledge that any claims we or our users have to ownership of site content is contingent upon that premise first and foremost. We agree to respect and protect the integrity of this and all intellectual properties to the best of our ability for as long as this site exists.

e) In order to use this site, users must agree not to post or send anything illegal, offensive, profane, obscene, or sexual in nature while on this site. While this site does encourage "realistic roleplaying," insofar as content and dialogue is consistent with previously established Star Trek™ practices, registered users must demonstrate discretion at all times if using any themes or dialogue that may not be appropriate for children. Further, while we acknowledge that individual simulation owners have the right to allow uncensored content on their own websites, it is not the policy of the Future Fleets staff to allow it here. Finally, users must agree to refrain from sending or posting messages with content that is inappropriate in a family game setting, including threats, insults, and slander, except when such content is unquestionably "in-character" and in full adherence to all other rules in this agreement.

f) The Future Fleets staff agrees not to discriminate against any users solely on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender expression, social status, or politicial affiliation. However, Future Fleets and its administrators reserve the right to deny service to any individual or group if it feels, in its sole discretion, that their use of the site could cause harm to the site or its users in any way, especially if that individual or group, in practice or in premise, promotes hate, violence, or discrimination to real-world individuals or populations.

g) Users must acknowledge that the game portion of the site is intended to provide a role-playing environment based on the Star Trek universe. By registering for the game portion of the site, users must agree to behave in a manner consistent with established protocols, laws, and canon in-universe whenever possible without violating the rules of this agreement.

h) Users must agree to be held responsible for any damage incurred by the site or its users as a result of their negligence, violation of the rules, or misuse of the site.

5. Off-Site Links

Although the Future Fleets staff will make a reasonable effort to verify that off-site links on this site are valid and present no threat to our users, we cannot guarantee their content or security. Therefore, anyone who uses our site or its services must agree that they, alone, are responsible for the links and content they post, and for the links they choose to follow.
