Websense Customer Forums

A "Websense Customer Forum" is any area or site that is part of any Websense website including chat areas, message boards, instant messaging, mobile messaging, social communities, blogs, or e-mail that offers customers and users the opportunity to contribute submissions. If you wish to contribute or participate in a Websense Customer Forum, we want to thank you for your participation. We are working to create sites that are helpful and relevant to our customers and end-users however, there are still limits on what you can do on a Websense Customer Forum.

Websense Customer Forums are for public, not private, communications. You have no expectation of privacy associated with any submission. Any submission you make and any use of any submission is at your own risk. You are solely responsible for the submissions you make on any Websense Customer Forum.

Please remember that we have no duty to monitor any Websense Customer Forum.
