By accessing this Web site and the User Forums contained herein, you agree to the Terms of Use. CNC Software, Inc. may change the Terms of Use any time. Please read this document carefully before posting in the User Forums.

Overview

  • The Mastercam.com User Forum is intended to be used by Mastercam Customers, Instructors, Students, and Resellers.
  • We encourage all users to participate in applicable forums. Please try to keep discussions on topic and in the correct forum. Off topic post may be moved to a different forum.

Warranties and Disclaimers

Considering the real-time nature of User Forums in general, it is impossible for us to review all messages or confirm the validity of information posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any post, and are not responsible for the contents of any post.

The posts express the views of the author, not necessarily the views of CNC Software, Inc. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email or private message. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

Rules

CNC Software, Inc. reserves the right to delete any message for any reason whatsoever. Messages are typically deleted as a result of the following:

  • Profanity, acronyms representing profanity, or racism within subject lines, signatures, or messages deemed to be blatant as opposed to incidental.
  • Posting material that does not pertain to Mastercam or any of the forum sub-categories.
  • Commercial solicitation or spamming.
  • Insulting other members with the intent of inciting or perpetuating a conflict or argument.
  • Littering forums or individual threads with repetitive, pointless posts.
  • Posting personal e-mail or chat dialogues.
  • Posting pornographic or otherwise objectionable material.
  • Impersonating other individuals or false representation.
  • Discussing illegal activity or posting links to other websites that deal with such activities.
  • Posts made under secondary usernames or other aliases.
  • Posts which are completely unrelated to the forum in which they are posted.
  • Excessive cross-posting (this is considered spam).
  • Posts which breach another member’s privacy (i.e. containing phone numbers, addresses, or other personal information).
  • Copyright violations.
  • Discussions regarding pricing of Mastercam. Mastercam is a global product and prices fluctuate for many reasons including service levels, localization and distribution expenses, etc.
  • Issues with Resellers. These disputes should be resolved with the Resellers directly or with CNC software. Please contact sales.questions@mastercam.com for any issues of this nature.

User who violate the above rules will receive anywhere from a verbal warning to a lifetime ban and possible criminal charges depending on the severity of the offence.
