Laura Ingalls Wilder Legacy and Research Association Social Media and LauraPalooza Terms of Use

The Laura Ingalls Wilder Legacy and Research Association (LIWLRA) promotes a friendly, informative and enjoyable online experience across our social media outlets. We believe that good conversation helps us all understand Laura Ingalls Wilder’s legacy better. While we sponsor and support the academic conference, LauraPalooza™, LIWLRA only monitors and moderates official LIWLRA and @LIWLegacy branded sites.  We do not monitor/moderate or own any other additional  social media group pages. Although many of our members participate on those sites, they do so in a personal capacity and not as official representatives of LIWLRA. 

By submitting or using content posted on our official LIWLRA page, you understand and agree that you will not post or post links to:

  • Abusive, defamatory, profane or obscene language or content;
  • Fraudulent, deceptive, or misleading personal attacks on individuals or specific groups;
  • Content that promotes, fosters, or perpetuates discrimination on the basis of race, creed, color, age, religion, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, national origin, physical or mental disability or any other form of discrimination, at the sole discretion of LIWLRA
  • Sexual content;
  • Conduct or encouragement of illegal, harmful or offensive activity;
  • Content in violation of any intellectual property right of another person or entity;
  • Content in violation of any law or regulation;
  • Content for the purposes of promoting a competitor or a competitive product;
  • Advertisements, commercial solicitations, spam or malicious software; 
  • Content that relates to confidential or proprietary information;
  • Content that violates a legal ownership interest of any other party;
  • Content that violates LIWLRA’s graphics guidelines;

Content determined to be inappropriate, in poor taste, or otherwise contrary to the purposes of this forum, at the sole discretion of LIWLRA.

LIWLRA has the right (but not the obligation) to monitor all content and to reject or remove any inappropriate or offensive content and the right to block the user, at its discretion.

We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any website, application or other digital service that you use. We are not responsible for the accuracy, accessibility or legality of the material contained on any destination website, application, or service. The privacy policy and terms of use (if any) posted on the destination third-party website, application, or service will govern your activities.

Consequences of Reported Unacceptable Behavior:

Upon receiving a report of unacceptable behavior, LIWLRA’s first priority will be the safety and security of our members and participants. In order to preserve a safe environment, LIWLRA reserves the right to temporarily suspend or permanently terminate specific features available to anyone violating LIWLRA’s terms of use. LIWLRA also reserves the right to suspend or terminate the account of anyone in violation of these terms. If facts are in dispute, LIWLRA reserves the right to take the action most likely to maintain safety and security of all participants. A report of confirmed history of a participant’s prior unacceptable behavior can be used as the basis for a response under this policy. 

Violation of terms of use while attending LauraPalooza official events can result in denied access to any further events. Any person who is denied access to or whose access is terminated may request that LIWLRA review the matter after the event has concluded. However, LIWLRA’s action will be effective immediately and will continue until and unless LIWLRA issues a contrary decision. Any person who is denied access to or removed from a LauraPalooza event based on this policy will not be eligible for a refund of any registration fees paid. 

By using any social media page or attending any official LIWLRA event, you agree to adhere to the site’s terms of service. 

If you have any questions about this policy or to report any abuses of it, please send us a message and we will follow up with you.

If you feel that your personal safety and well-being is at risk at any time, please contact law enforcement immediately.
