Summary

Your safety

Your safety is very important to us. We are bike enthusiasts ourselves, and love going fast in a responsible and controlled way on a closed track. Never upload data to Serious-Racing that you have collected on public roads. We consider uploading data collected on public roads to be an irresponsible and unlawful use of our service. We will immediately and without notice terminate any user's account that uses Serious-Racing in an unlawful or irresponsible way or attempts to convince other users to use this service in an unlawful or irresponsible way.

You agree that it is your responsibility to operate your vehicle in a safe manner and within your own capabilities to ensure your own and other people's safety, and to follow all rules and directions given by track officials and instructors. Never use our service while you are operating a vehicle. Don’t go faster than you are able to, just because you are using Serious-Racing. Use Serious-Racing to learn from others, not for showing off. You may use our service to monitor and analyse the data you collect, but Serious-Racing is not responsible for any damage, injuries or deaths associated with the operation of a vehicle during, after or as a result of the use of our services.

You may not, without our prior written permission, frame or inline link any of the content of the site, or incorporate any of our material, content or intellectual property into another website or service.

User content

Any content that you and other users post or upload to Serious-Racing is called “user content”. All user content submitted by you will be considered non-confidential and non-exclusive.

Content guidelines

Serious-Racing is a positive, inclusive community of automotive enthusiasts. We welcome all our users to share their GPS lap times, notes, vehicle photos and tweaks for the community’s benefit. We do not tolerate:

  • Bullying, harassment, abuse, obscene language. Let’s keep it positive.
  • Any talk about racing on public roads (when they are not closed for a specific race event). Safety is our number one concern.
  • Spam. Only links to other pages on Serious-Racing are acceptable.

We welcome all original photos of your shiny vehicles that you own the rights to. We don’t want to see:

  • Any images that are abusive to certain groups or people.
  • Nudity. Please keep your leathers on, guys and gals.
  • Gore. No need for blood spurting or bones sticking out of your arm.

If you post any user content that is not in line with these guidelines, we may remove it without warning. Repeat offenders will have their account terminated.

When using Serious-Racing, you will come across other users' content and it is possible that this content contains images or opinions that are abusive, harmful, or otherwise inappropriate. Every user is solely responsible for the content they post or upload to Serious-Racing. We do not endorse users’ opinions that are posted on the site. Serious-Racing does not monitor or prescreen user content prior to posting.

Interacting with other users

Serious-Racing users can add each other as friends. Both parties have to agree before the friend connection is created. Users who are connected as friends on Serious-Racing can see more of each other's profile information than non-friends: real name and email address. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other users, whether online or in person, both within the Serious-Racing website and through other platforms. Serious-Racing assumes no responsibility or liability for any loss or damage resulting from interaction with other users of the service, persons you meet, or persons who find you through the service. You agree to take reasonable precautions in all interactions with other users, and carefully consider the personal information you are disclosing before accepting any other user as a friend.

Changes to the website or this agreement

We aim to keep on improving Serious-Racing and introduce new features, so things might change from time to time. At times we may temporarily or permanently discontinue or disable parts of or the entire Serious-Racing service without prior notice. We may occasionally change the terms of this agreement and will notify you via email in case of big changes. Serious-Racing will determine what constitutes as a big change. If Serious-Racing does change the terms of this agreement, all changes will go into effect at the time we post the updated agreement.

Termination

In this event, we will aim to provide but cannot guarantee one month's notice via email.

If an account is inactive for a certain amount of time, we reserve the right to delete the account and its data. We will notify you via email before taking this action.

Serious-Racing may remove any files and data associated with your account, or suspend or terminate your use of the services at any time if we are made aware that you are in breach of any term of this agreement or you are using the services for any activity that may be illegal or in breach of a third party's rights.
