The Federation has the right but not the obligation to monitor or, without notice, edit or remove Community Calendar uploads, warn members, suspend accounts and cancel accounts to enforce the guidelines as deemed necessary. We also reserve the right to remove postings that are outside the intent of the Community Calendar, or if we believe that doing so will improve our site and the experience of our users.
