ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT NOTE ON ANTI-GAY ABUSE
Big Gay Picture Show is dedicated to the free expression of ideas, but as an LGBT-focused site we felt it was especially important to highlight our policy on anti-gay views expressed on the site. We welcome people to discuss any LGBT issues, however we reserve the right to remove absolutely anything from the site that we feel reaches the level of hate speech, personal abuse, deliberate trolling or which could cause offense to a large number of our users (please note this also applies to personal abuse against those with anti-gay views). Decisions surrounding this are made at the sole discretion of Muser Media or its agents, and may range from the removal of individual post or comments to the deletion of accounts and users being banned from the site. Please also read the rest our Abuse policy below.
If you have any concerns about this or have seen anything on the site you feel is abusive, contact us at [email protected]
Big Gay Picture Show
This website is owned and operated by Muser Media (also referred to below as ‘us’, ‘we’, ‘Big Gay Picture Show’ or ‘BGPS’). Use of this website is subject to the Terms & Conditions below. By using the site, whether as a registered member or not, you are deemed to have accepted these terms.
The views and opinions expressed in the BGPS forums, in reader feedback, comments and blogs are those of the individual authors and don’t necessarily reflect the views and opinions of BGPS, Muser Media or any of its employees or writers.
With content produced by Muser Media or its specifically commissioned authors, both on the BGPS website and in official newsletters, every effort is made to ensure information is complete and accurate. However we cannot guarantee its accuracy or completeness, partly due to the fact that we rely on information provided to us by third parties. The site is provided ‘as is’ with no warranties of any kind, and we do not accept liability for any inaccuracy or omissions in the information provided by this site.
While BGPS is committed to the free exchange of ideas and opinions, it is also dedicated to doing this within an environment where users are free from intimidation, harassment or personal attack. BGPS will not tolerate any users using the site to attack, intimidate or harass others. This includes personal attacks against other users of the site or any non-users who may find your post offensive. Any users deemed to be abusing others or misusing the service risks having posts, blogs or their accounts monitored, moderated or removed. This will be done at the sole discretion of Muser Media and may be done with no notice.
Registering under a false name (beyond nicknames/username) or impersonating someone else on the site will be deemed abuse of this site. Any accounts where this may be taking place risk being removed. We will listen to reasonable arguments for use of false names on an individual basis – such as fear of abuse if a real name is used – but any decisions about this are made at the sole discretion of BGPS.
If you believe you or others have become victims of abuse on the BGPS site, or if you find content you think may be offensive and/or in breach of these terms and condition, e-mail us at [email protected], along with details of the problem, including the URL of the offending post.
Copyright, Intellectual Property & Libel
The copyright in all content on this site is owned by Muser Media, used with the permission of the rights owner, or believed to be in the public domain (if you believe we are using an image we have no right to, please e-mails us telling us which page the image appears on at [email protected]). No copying or distribution of any materials is permitted for any commercial or business use without our express prior permission (for non BGPS generated content, please contact the relevant rights holder). If you wish to include links to BGPS pages or content such as images or videos on your site, see the ‘Outside Links’ section of the Terms & Condition for more information.
No user should post or embed any third party copyrighted material onto the BGPS site, except with express permission of the rights owner or where it would fall under ‘fair use’ provisions of copyright law. If you are unsure whether a post might break copyright law, either don’t post it or contact BGPS first. BGPS reserves the right to remove posts, images, videos or any other content which could contravene copyright laws.
Any content that users add to the site cannot promote or link to anything illegal, possibly illegal or which could be construed as hardcore pornography. This includes but is not limited to things such as posting links to pirated movies or encouraging others to use particular services that infringe intellectual copyright. You may discuss topics such as piracy, but anything which could be deemed to be encouraging or making it easier for others to engage in piracy or any other illegal or possible illegal activity, risks being removed.
BGPS reserves the right to remove posts which may be deemed libellous or which are based on unsubstantiated rumour or conjecture and could be deemed damaging to the person or companies referred to. Please note that this does not prevent you from proffering honest opinions on any topic, but these opinions should not be presented as fact unless they have been substantiated as being so.
While BGPS may contain links to outside sites that we feel you may be interested in, these sites may not be owned by us and we do not endorse or accept any responsibility for their content or your user experience on those sites. Any purchase or contract you enter into after clicking onto a third party website from BGPS will be with that site and fall under that site’s terms and conditions. We cannot be held responsible for any for any losses you may suffer as a result of any purchases you make at third party websites.
All purchases made in the BGPS Show (Big Gay Picture Shop) and governed by the terms and conditions of Amazon.co.uk. If you purchase through the shop you are making a contract with Amazon, and so any problems should be directed to them or their agents.
When using the price comparison service, every effort is made to ensure that prices shown on BGPS are accurate and up to date, however we cannot guarantee that when you click onto a third party website to make a purchase, that the price there will be the same as the one shown on BGPS. Neither party can be held responsible for any differences in price between them and us. Although the price shown on the third party website is likely to be the correct one, if in doubt, contact them before purchasing.
Users may not post links, comments or any other material on the BGPS site that could be interpreted as Spam. Users are not permitted to post anything of a commercial nature unless previously agreed with Muser Media. If you see anything on the site you believe is Spam, please report it by e-mailing [email protected], including the URL of the offending post(s).
Any codes provided to embed BGPS content (such as videos and images) either on this or partner sites (e.g. Youtube), are provided for non-commercial purposes. If no code is provided, it should not be assumed that hotlinking – particularly of images stored on our servers – is permitted, as this may contravene copyright law. If in doubt whether you’re allowed to use something or not, contact us by e-mail at: [email protected].

While we make every effort to ensure your security and privacy, we cannot be held responsible for any unauthorised use, distribution, damage or destruction of personal data, except to the extent we are required to by the Data Protection Act 1998.
