Thanks so much for being part of this wonderful global community! ❤
To keep it enjoyable for everyone, please follow these simple rules:
Be friendly. We are here to be informed, entertained and de-stressed — and that works better with an injection of warmth.
Be polite and civil. We encourage open and candid discussion and debates without disrespectful or insulting comments.
Stay on topic. Comments, questions and contributions should be relevant to the topic being discussed.
Don’t post or upload any untruthful, inappropriate or illegal content.
Don’t post or upload promotional content, advertisements or financial assistance pleas.
Don’t spam — no one likes seeing the same content posted to more than one group or discussions.
Don’t post or upload content from this platform elsewhere without permission from the author.
Respect copyrights and trademarks. Name the photographer or the writer if you can.
Respect privacy. We have established this community to be more private than a conventional social network.
By disregarding any of these rules you may be warned first by the community or group leader and then blocked from the group. Any complaints about the treatment should be addressed through the Builders group.
We do monitor posts, but we may miss something. Please let us know if you encounter any content that violates any of the above rules, so we can review and take the appropriate action.
The views and opinions expressed by users on the Gorilla Highlands Expert platform do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of the organisation. Please keep in mind that any comments or content you share on this site are your sole responsibility.
We are looking forward to see you on the platform!
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
For users that register on our website, we store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. Unless it is part of your publicly available profile, nobody else has access to it, and it will never be shared with anyone.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
If you upload images to the website, you can decide to avoid any with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) . Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
