We use this information to satisfy your requests for further information, to customize our responses and our future communication with you, and to contact you, regarding development and events in the GearVRf Project and/or Project areas that you have expressed general interest in.
We make every effort to allow you to opt-in and opt-out of receiving GearVRf Project messages. However, if you are receiving messages from us and cannot find a way to unsubscribe, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

We will not share personal identification information data, either for single individuals or groups, with any parties, including those affiliated with the GearVRf Project, such as members or sponsors.
Public Forum Content
The GearVRf Project makes available to its users several communication forums (such as mail lists, blogs, and others). Be aware that any information or messages you share in these forums immediately becomes public information. Exercise caution in determining whether to disclose any of your personal information. The GearVRf Project is an open source website, intended to encourage creative thinking and free expression; however, the GearVRf Project reserves the right to act as necessary to preserve the integrity of the website and its forums, including removing any and all posts deemed vulgar or inappropriate.

Terms of Service
By using the GearVRf Project website, you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions here.
Here is the basic idea:
- Do not violate anyone's intellectual property or post anyone else's copyrighted or confidential material you do not have permission to use.
- Do not post anything vulgar, inflammatory, pornographic, illegal, etc.
- Do not post spam.
- Do not post too many meta-links and tags; too many will not be accepted. If you try to boost your SEO, that is an abuse of the system.
- Do not post just to sell something. Sure, talk up your project, but do not mention how to buy it every single time.
- Do not launch into personal attacks. You are not going to agree with everyone, but name-calling will just cause trouble and will be regarded as flaming behavior.
- Tone down foul language. You can say what you need to say without relying on cursing. In fact, your writing will be regarded as that much more impressive.
