Terms of Service
Christian Parents Forum (CPF) is an online community for parents that allows members to create unique personal profiles online and communicate with parents around the world.  The CPF is hosted by servers based in the State of Illinois, is based at the following URL: http://www.christianparentsforum.com and run by various individuals collectively known as the CPF Administrators.

This Terms of Service (TOS) sets forth the legally binding terms for your use of the CPF.

The term "User" refers to both a Visitor and a Member.

You acknowledge that CPF may review your Content for adherence to our guidelines on the Forum Rules page and compliance with the TOS set forth in this agreement. CPF and its designees shall have the right to remove any Content that violates the TOS, Forum Rules, or is otherwise objectionable to CPF as determined by the CPF Administrators.

You are only allowed to use the CPF if you agree to abide by all applicable laws and to this Agreement. Please read this Agreement carefully.
