Guidelines & Terms

Post by Varanoir » Sun Apr 03, 2016 8:32 am

The following is subject to change at any time without notice. Please contact admin if you have any comments or queries or require further clarification.

[color=#0000FF] Bikers Club France is a not for profit organisation and is run by volunteers who are not paid for their time. The forum has to maintain up to date software and adapt to changing circumstances, as well as pay for annual hosting and webmaster site maintenance charges. The club is not part of any holding company and has no sponsors, so funding must come from within and some sales ( advertising/merchandise) . We do not charge a membership fee as we feel this is counter productive, but as all members benefit from the use of the site, we do ask for donations to help administer the site on your behalf. Thankyou. [/color]
