By using EnergyTalk, you agree to these terms of service.

  1. Though we are for the most part nice people, we owe you nothing. We can revoke service at any time.

  2. You must ask for permission to use data in ways not clearly intended through the website. This would include reverse engineering, scraping, copying, or redistribution of the data.

  3. No illegal or shady stuff allowed. You are bound by South African law, which among others include the constitution, most notably the bill of rights, and the electronic communications act.

  4. Expanding on point 3, the Bill of Rights says you shall not discriminate based on race, gender or religion. We are an open-minded bunch and we promote a pluralist approach rather than a secular one, but it is best if you stay out of such matters.

  5. Expanding even further on 3 and 4, the ECT act says no spamming. Don’t do it man!

  6. You remain responsible for all your actions on the site. If you behave badly, we can terminate you. Virtually speaking.

  7. In addition to point 6 above, given that South African law may hold administrators of electronic forums responsible for defamation, you are to refrain from such actions, or risk termination.

  8. You must own the content you distribute, or you must be licensed to do so.

  9. We are not a law firm. We offer no warranty, and we are not liable for the content on this site.

  10. Don’t use your banking password with this site. While we make every effort to keep your data safe, we don’t want to be responsible for any bad luck that befalls you in the event of a breach.
