All persons who share the account live in the same household
All persons sharing the account are 18 years old or older
Only one person uses the account at one time (i.e. one person logged on at any one time)
It's not advisable to share an account because everybody who uses the account will have access to all the information contained within.

20. PAYING MEMBERSHIP
The Pork is a subscription based service. Bronze members receive a free subscription to our service. To receive additional benefits members may elect to pay membership fees to The Pork Community Inc. for use of these additional benefits.
If you allow your membership to expire items in your account may be placed on hold such as images and Nicknames. Images are placed on hold based on when they were uploaded. i.e. If you had 40 icons and are now only allowed 5 the first 5 images uploaded into your account will remain active and the remaining icons will be placed on hold.
21. PAYING MEMBERSHIP REFUNDS
Refunds are only available within the first three (3) months of a payment being made.
Paying membership level members may receive a refund by contacting email@example.com with their UserName and the Receipt Email received when the account was upgraded. All refunds will be paid as a credit to the original method of payment within 60 days using the Email address on file. Refunds will be a prorated amount based on the term of membership. Memberships are prorated at the rate monthly rate regardless of the membership term paid for.
For example, if you paid $24.95 for a 3 month Platinum Membership and canceled your account after using 1 month of the membership, you would receive a refund of $10.00 ($24.95 minus $9.95 of membership used, minus the $5.00 cancellation fee).
Memberships receiving a refund will be canceled and the member will no longer have access to that account.
We reserve the right to issue a full refund with no cancellation fee in situations such as a double billing or other such situations at our sole discretion.

23. VIRTUAL CURRENCY AND VIRTUAL ITEMS
The Service may include an opportunity to purchase or earn virtual currency (“Virtual Currency” or "Coins" or "Pork Coins") or virtual items (“Virtual Items”) that may require you to pay a fee using real money to obtain the Virtual Currency or Virtual Items. PURCHASES OF ANY VIRTUAL CURRENCY AND VIRTUAL ITEMS ARE FINAL; AND EXCEPT IN OUR SOLE AND ABSOLUTE DISCRETON, SHALL NOT BE REFUNDABLE OR EXCHANGEABLE.

Prices and availability of the Virtual Currency or Virtual Items are subject to change without notice.
24. DUPLICATE CHAT PICTURES
You agree to the following:
If more than one chatter has a chat picture that is obviously from the same picture, either chatter has the right to contact the graphics department (firstname.lastname@example.org) about the duplicate icon. In the email, the chatter complaining of the duplicate must include both their nickname, the nickname of the other party involved, and a description of the icon. Within one week, the graphics department will look at each account. The person who uploaded the icon in question first will be allowed to keep it, and the other person will have their icon taken offline-- even if they were the person who brought the duplicate icon to the attention of the graphics department. When an icon is taken offline, it will remain in the person's account until they delete it, and the person will be paged with the name of the icon taken offline, and the reason it was taken offline.
You acknowledge that we do not go through accounts looking for duplicates. The only duplicate matters that are reviewed are ones that are brought to our attention. If a person does not bring a duplicate matter to the attention of the graphics department, it will be assumed that the creator of the original icon has given permission to others to use it.
25. USERNAME AND NICKNAMES
You will not create a Nickname or Username that uses characters or reserved names that could cause confusion to other members. This includes (but not limited to) Nicknames that appear different inside messages than chat menus (i.e. Using & HTML tags). Certain names are reserved and not allowed such as System, Admin, SysOp, Security, names of site administrators etc.
You may not create a Nickname to harass or impersonate another member. This includes (but not limited to) names used to "phish" for messages from others by using a name so similar to another user it causes confusion and messages are mistakenly sent to the wrong user. Images should not contain another members Nickname and your Nickname can not contain another members Nickname unless agreed to by that member.
We reserve the right to remove names at any time for any reason including changes to allowed characters in names. You further understand creating a Nickname to send anonymous messages or posts and then deleting the Nickname constitutes an attempt to avoid ban or ignore lists and is not allowed. You further understand if you create "silly" names (such as "I_Hate_No_Lurking") to enter no lurking rooms you will likely be banned from these rooms and possibly the site.
26. ROOM RATINGS AND LANGUAGE FILTERS.
Chat Rooms are "rated" in order to enable users to determine what language and images are appropriate and may be expected. The ratings are guidelines that are enforced by the administrators of each chat room, and are not to be regarded as an assurance that the content will be safe or acceptable to you or anyone under eighteen (18) years of age. For example, in a "PG13-Rated Room," foul language is not appropriate, pictures involving adult themes (nudity or violence, for example) are not permitted. In an "R-Rated Room," some offensive language and content may occur. In an "PG16-Rated Room," you should expect offensive language and content. The Pork Community Inc. is not liable for any assumptions that you make when entering any given chat room or for any inappropriately rated chat rooms and you assume all risk in joining any chat room or permitting anyone under eighteen (18) years old to join any chat room. The Pork Community Inc. is not liable for any offensive language that may not be filtered by this system and/or if this system fails to operate as intended. Members who purposely bypass the filter could have their membership cancelled depending on the situation.
27. COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT
