• BrewArt Community Terms of Use


    BrewArt is owned and operated by Coopers Brewery Limited ACN 007 871 409 (referred to in these Terms of Use as ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’ or ‘BrewArt’). The BrewArt Community Site (‘Community Site’) is a place where we can come together and discuss the art of brewing with the BrewArt System while sharing a few laughs. Think of it as an online BrewArt lounge where BrewArtists can catch up with each other. A place where we can all be comfortable in each other’s company. Behaviour judged to be in breach of these community terms of use (‘Community Rules’) may result in being warned or even removed from this Community Site. In more serious circumstances it could also lead to other consequences, such as legal action.

    While everyone is welcome, there are a few rules users (referred to as ‘you’, ‘users’ or ‘BrewArtists’) of the Community Site need to be aware of – especially if you’re posting a comment, sharing pictures, links or videos. BrewArt encourage BrewArtists to submit comments, photos, and videos. We will remove any content that is inappropriate, offensive or contains external links for the purpose of commercial promotion.

    Please understand that comments posted to this Site do not necessarily represent the opinions of BrewArt.
