Acceptable Use Policy

Acceptable Use Policy

Effective starting: 24th April 2017

Here at Flame Concepts, our goal is to help you and your team do the best work and maximise your sales, 24/7.  To do this, we need to keep our products and services running smoothly, quickly, and without distraction.  For this to happen, we need help from you, our users. We need you not to misuse or abuse our products and services.

To describe exactly what we mean by “misuse” or “abuse” – and help us identify such transgressions, and react accordingly – we’ve created this ‘Acceptable Use Policy’. Under this policy, we reserve the right to remove content or suspend and totally cancel access or services that is inconsistent with the spirit of the guidelines, even if it’s something that is not forbidden by the letter of the policy. In other words, if you do something that isn’t listed here verbatim, but it looks or smells like something listed here, we may still remove it from a site, suspend a users access to our systems or may even suspend and cancel all services and contracts without notice for your business/event.

You’ll see the word “services” a lot throughout this. That refers to all websites and systems owned or operated by Flame Concepts (such as FlameConcepts.com, FlameConcepts.Systems, enews.flameconcepts.com, and any related websites, sub-domains and pages) as well as any hosted services operated by Flame Concepts (such as ticketsfor.events and other Cloud offerings).

By using your judgment, we can work together to keep growing your sales for everyones benefit. You can find all the legal fine print at the bottom of this page, our privacy policy and business terms on our website in addition to any contract so get in touch with info@flameconcepts.com with any questions.

Here’s what we won’t allow:

Disruption or falsifying documents/tickets
