Gem Shopping Network Community Standards
Community Standards for Participation
The registered users on GemShopping.com who participate in our Community features are solely responsible for their conduct and for the content of their postings. GSN does not and cannot review everything that appears and is not responsible for the content of the postings. We reserve the right at our discretion to delete postings or threads that we deem in violation of these guidelines or that are otherwise unacceptable to us. We further reserve the right at our discretion to suspend or remove the privileges of users who violate these guidelines and to report such individuals to the appropriate authorities.
Please keep your postings relevant to the topic. This makes it easier for others to follow the conversation.
Be respectful and courteous to others, even if you disagree with them. Do not use language or post content that is unkind, in poor taste, or engage in personal attacks. We encourage you to treat others the way that you want to be treated.
Our site is intended for adults and accounts are only available to individuals 18 years old and over.
Only one email address per person and only one screen name per email address are permitted. Do not impersonate any person or entity, misrepresent your affiliation with a third party, or violate these guidelines in choosing a screen name.
These are public areas and programs. Do not post personal or any other information that you do not wish to have made public, for example: do not post any Personally Identifiable Information, including, but not exclusive to, last names, address, telephone number, email address, social security number, GSN account number, or birthday.
Do not publish personal information of others without their consent.
Do not solicit, encourage, or ask others to post a rating or review.

Do not engage in harassing, threatening, abusive, violent, discriminatory (racist, sexist, etc.), hostile, or defamatory language or behavior that would be considered inappropriate by any rational person.

Use of these public areas for commercial purposes is prohibited. Do not use any Community features (including, but not limited to, chats, video, forums, reviews, images, and profiles) to solicit funds, advertise, or solicit goods or services, or post third-party promotional material. Only use these public areas and Community features for non-commercial purposes.

Any materials posted by you will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary and may be used by GSN without restriction as we deem appropriate.
Do not bump messages.
Do not flood or spam, post chain letters or junk mail, or engage in other behavior that could disrupt the Community features or this site.
Reporting abuse: A Community participant's excessive reporting of abuse of other Community participants without cause may result in the participant being banned from further participation in the GSN Community.
We will report individuals and work with law enforcement when we believe it is needed for safety of our team members and registered users.
