WRPA Community E-List Terms of Use

By subscribing to the Washington Recreation & Park Association (WRPA) electronic mailing list (the “E-List”), you agree to be bound by these Terms of Use in their entirety. WRPA reserves the right to change these terms at any time and from time to time with or without notice. Your continued use of the E-List constitutes agreement to the revised terms.

Rules of Conduct
You agree to be bound by the following rules of conduct. Violation of these rules constitutes a breach of the E-List’s Terms of Use and may result in termination of your E-List privileges. These rules apply to both those who post inquiries and those who reply, either directly or indirectly, to such inquiries. Users should report violations of these rules to WRPA at [email protected].

  • You agree not to use the E-List for commercial purposes, business solicitation, or private gain (e.g., buying or selling items, advertising items or business services, responding to a member post in order to solicit business, etc.).
  • You agree not to comment, post or distribute via the E-List material that is defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, or illegal.
  • You agree not to use the E-List in connection with contests, chain letters, junk e-mail or “spam.”
  • You agree not to use the E-List to falsely impersonate an individual, group, organization or entity.
  • You agree not to use the E-List in such a way as to infringe the copyrights, trademark or other intellectual property of a third party. By posting or distributing material, you warrant and represent that you own the copyright with respect to such material or have received permission from the copyright owner, and you agree to indemnify WRPA in the event of any claims by a third party with respect to material posted or distributed via the E-List.
  • Emails and other material distributed via the E-List may not be reproduced or distributed outside the E-List except with the permission of the author and WRPA.
  • You agree not to harvest, collect, share, distribute or use the email addresses or other personal information of E-List users without their permission.
  • You agree not to damage or interfere with the operation of the E-List or the email services of E-List users, including, without limitation, through the use of viruses, spyware, malware or harmful code.

E-List Etiquette
The following guidelines are intended to help you participate in the E-List in a responsible and courteous manner.

  • Nothing Administrative on the List. Do not send administrative messages, such as “remove me from the list,” through the E-List. Instead, contact the WRPA Office directly at [email protected] to change your settings or to remove yourself from a list. If you are changing e-mail addresses, please advise WRPA of the change so that your information can be updated.
  • Use the Subject Line. State concisely and clearly the specific topic of the question in the subject line. This allows members to respond more appropriately to your posting and makes it easier for members to search the archives by subject.
  • Include Your Name. To frame your perspectives, it's useful to include your name, affiliation, phone number, location, etc.
  • Delete Extra Text. Include only the relevant portions of the original message in your reply, delete any header information, and put your response before the original posting.
  • Be Conscious of Your Tone. Don't challenge or attack others. The questions posed on the E-List are meant to stimulate conversation, not to create contention.
  • Think About the Content of Your Post. Do not post anything in a E-List message that you would not want the world to see or that you would not want anyone to know came from you.

By participating in the E-List and posting information or other material thereon, you grant to WRPA the nonexclusive right and license to make that information or other material available to WRPA members.

WRPA, in its sole and unfettered discretion, may terminate your access to the E-List for any reason including, without limitation, your breach of these Terms. You agree that any termination of your access to the E-List may be effected without prior notice, and you agree that WRPA shall not be liable to you or any third party for any costs or damages of any kind resulting from termination of your E-List access.  

WRPA is not responsible for material posted by others which may be construed to be libelous or factually incorrect. WRPA disclaims all warranties with regard to information posted to the E-List. This disclaimer includes all implied warranties of merchantability and fitness. In no event shall WRPA be liable for any special, indirect, or consequential damages or any damages whatsoever resulting from loss of use, data, or profits arising out of or in connection with the use or performance of any information posted on the E-List.

Your use of the E-List is at your own risk. Without limiting the foregoing, any material downloaded or otherwise obtained through use of the E-List is done at your own discretion and risk and you are solely responsible for any damage done to your computer system or loss of data that results from the download of any such material. No information or advice, whether written or oral, obtained by you from WRPA will create any warranty or condition not expressly stated in the terms.

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless WRPA from and against any loss, liability, or expense, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses and court costs, arising out of or related to any third party claim against WRPA alleging that material you posted or distributed via the E-List violates any of the third party’s rights. WRPA reserves the right to control the defense and settlement of any action or proceeding against WRPA that you are bound to defend pursuant to the foregoing.
