(The WritersCo Community)
We will continually strive to ensure that the availability of the community will remain uninterrupted and that any transmission of data to and from the community is error-free. However, due to the nature of the internet, and external influences, this can not be guaranteed.
At certain periods your access to the community may be restricted to facilitate system repairs, for general maintenance or for backing up information on the community. If this is the case we would aim to inform you of this via the login page.
The crew withholds the right to suspend or permanently ban your account if it is perceived that your actions on or off the WritersCo community are deemed inappropriate, or that you break any of the WritersCo rules or Terms and Conditions of use. (See TaC 4)
