Privacy
TPMG is committed to protecting your privacy. To make your online experience more convenient, we gather information from you. We maintain the privacy of your information using security technologies and adhere to policies that prevent unauthorized use of your personal information.


About IP addresses
TPMG collects IP addresses when submitting posts to the bulletin board and for the purposes of system administration. An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're connected to a network or connected to the Internet. When guests request pages from TPMG, our web servers log the guests' IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us unless issues of security arise in which IP addresses may be turned over to local, state and national authorities.


Use of Cookies
What are cookies? Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site transfers to an individual's hard drive for record keeping purposes. Cookies make Web-surfing easier for you by saving your passwords, purchases, and preferences while you're at our site. The use of cookies is an Industry standard, and you'll find cookies at most major Web sites.


Links to Other Sites
Users should be aware that when you are on the TPMG web site you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from TPMG that take you outside our service. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal information. Always be aware of where you end up. Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online - for example, via message boards or chat - that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. While TPMG strives to protect its user's personalBack to top information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.


Security Policy
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our Guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers, utilizing encryption software. Only those employees who need access to your information in order to do their jobs are allowed access, each having signed compressive nondisclosure agreements, which provides explicit legal confidentiality protections. Any employee who violates our privacy and/or security policies is subject to disciplinary action, including possible termination and civil and/or criminal prosecution.


Non-commercial Use
Because of the non-commercial nature of our site, please do not use the forums or contact information within to promote commercial services or advertise personal websites. Any posts that are deemed commercial will be removed. Any personal attacks or inappropriate posts will not be tolerated.

Buy and Sell
To ensure fair and fun trading, please read and abide by these rules here at all time.

BUY AND SELL FORUM RULES
Minimum 15 posts before one can post here, sorry, had to do this due to past issues. Oh and there also is a minimum number of days that goes by before you can post, but I'll let you find that out on your own. Spam the site by making a lot of useless posts in order to post on the for sale, your account will be locked. The community here has zero tolerance on this behaviour. If you wish to sell equipment only and not participate in the community, sell your stuff elsewhere (craigslist, kijiji, etc.).
ABSOLUTELY NO SPAM.
This is not a place for bulk sales, retail stores, online stores, or members offering their professional services for a fee. The intention here is for individuals to buy and sell gear, not to solicit a business or service. These type of posts will not be tolerated.
A sale thread's initial post must state an asking price.
Of course you can haggle, but an initial (and max) price must be stated. A post simply asking for offers or conducting a PM auction is not allowed. A price must be stated in initial post.
Don't post multiple threads about the same item.
You cannot charge taxes on top of an already stated price (so your initial stated price should include taxes). Honour your prices.
Do not sell something you don't have in your immediate possession.
All pirated/bootleg/illegal software sales/trades or even implying their inclusion in a sale/trade is strictly prohibited.
Please do not post links to items being sold on other sites (like Ebay or Craigslist).
Postings must only be related to photography. All others will be removed.
Arguments will not be tolerated.
If you do not intend to buy and have nothing positive to add to the sale, refrain from posting in the thread. This includes things like stating "the price is too high", or "it's cheaper at this store", etc. If you think the price is too high, inform seller via the PM service or an email. If you think your post may be in any way interpreted as being "argumentative" then take the safer route and send your message via PM or email to the seller. Replies of these kind will be removed without question.
Found something for sale at the store for a good price you want to share? Please post it in Gear and Equipment instead.
Bumping
You cannot bump a message no more than once every 24 hours. Responding to the post to answer a question is considered a bump (however you can reply to other questions if posted afterwards).
Once a sale is complete, update the thread by editing it and adding "SOLD" to the title, or in the case of a multiple item thread, state within the thread the items which have been sold. Do not edit the post such that the contents of the post is removed. Price of the item must be left and not removed from the post.

IMPORTANT: IF YOU BREAK THIS RULE YOU GET ONE (1) WARNING, DO IT AGAIN AND YOU ARE BANNED.

If misuse of the forum is found and the behaviour is not corrected after one warning, your account will be locked immediately. This also applies if multiple accounts are found for the same individual. If users are found to be 'spamming' the forum in order to meet the minimum requirement to post on the buy/sell forum, those messages will be deleted and the account locked. These accounts will be locked immediately or deleted without question. To re-activate your primary account, you must contact one of the moderators on this forum upon you agreeing to the terms here which can be done through email. Email addresses can be found here.
We hope that no issues arise as a result of providing this forum for gear swapping. Buyer and seller beware. TPMG can not make any claims about the integrity of items sold through this forum.
When any one of the rules are not followed, the message will either be 1) modified with reason and/or locked, 2) deleted or 3) moved.

When in doubt, feel free to PM one of the moderators for further clarification.
