Use of this site signifies your acceptance of the Terms and Conditions

It is very important that you (and your parents, if you're under 18) review the following rules so that you know what you can and cannot do on tennisteacher.com. By using this site, you and your parents agree to abide by the following terms and conditions:
Basic Summary:
1. The activities and games here are just for you to play and/or learn with while on the site. You can't sell them, trade them for anything, or pretend you made them. If you wish to do anything EXCEPT play and learn or teach with them, you can't unless you have our express written permission first.
The photos on this site are copyrighted and must not be used on any web page, directly or indirectly. When we are asked for permission to use the photos on other sites, to keep the photos unique to this site, permission is always refused. You may download the photos and store them on your own machine for your own personal use, for example as the main background or in a viewer, enjoy the photos! You are not allowed to download them onto a machine that you do not own, e.g., machines in a school, College, University, Library or Cybercafe, etc., or load them onto a server.  Furthermore, you are not allowed to post the photos in Newsgroups, or any similar service, and you are not allowed to distribute the photos on any storage media.
If there is anything you are unsure of about this, please e-mail
support@tennisteacher.com and we will do our best to give you an answer as quickly as possible.
2. The solicitation of passwords is strictly prohibited. If you ask for another user's password, for any reason, your account will be frozen. If you do see anything mean or nasty on the site, or anyone asking for passwords, please e-mail us immediately at  
abuse@tennisteacher.com  so that we can remove it right away.
3. If you write something that catches our eye on a message board or in a chat room, we might want to use it on the site or elsewhere when talking about the site. By sending in your comments and using the chat rooms, and getting your parents' permission to do so, you (and your parents) are agreeing that it's okay to repeat on the site and elsewhere what you say, and it's even all right for us to put it in an advertisement. So, this means we can use it in any way we want, anywhere, until the end of time. If you're under age 18, remember to ALWAYS check with your parents before you send
anything to us or post anything on the site!
4. By uploading or otherwise submitting any materials to tennisteacher.com, you (and your parents) are automatically granting us permission to use those materials for free in any manner we can think of forever throughout the universe. These materials must be created ONLY by the person submitting them
-- you cannot submit someone else's work. If you're under age 18, again, ALWAYS check with your parents before you send anything to us or post anything on the site!
5. You understand that, as part of learning/playing on the tennistacher.com site, you will receive e-mail from tennisteacher.com that lets you know when certain events happen, etc. You also agree that occasionally tennisteacher.com will send you special offers that you are under no obligation to accept. You understand that you may freely delete your e-mail from "My Preferences" at any time, but that doing so may detract from your enjoyment of the site, as you will no longer receive e-mails or tennisteacher.com newsletters.
6. You understand and agree that you will not post any:
profanity or obscenities (i.e., "swear words")
personal attacks on other people
slanderous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, threatening and harassing comments and/or images
materials created by someone else without their express written permission to do so
private or personal information that might identify another user
BEWARE: If you do, then we can and will remove all messages you have posted, your items, and everything associated with your account.
7. Attempting to gain access to someone else's account and/or account information, hacking, or trying to get other people's passwords is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN. If you are found to have hacked, or to have tried to get anyone else's passwords, then your account will be deleted and you will be permanently banned from the site.
Note - No member of
tennisteacher.com staff will EVER ask you for your password! Please email us at abuse@tennisteacher.com
