Terms Of Service

Please read this notice before using the site. By using the site, you agree to abide by these Terms of Use; please do not use this site if you do not agree with the Terms of Use outlined below. PaceAdvantage.Com reserves the right to modify the Terms of Use at its sole discretion, and by using this site, you agree to be bound by the modifications or updates to the Terms of Use.

Considering the real-time nature of this site, it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that we at PaceAdvantage.Com do not actively monitor the contents of this board at all times and are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this Discussion Board or any entity associated with this forum. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this forum.

Although this forum does not and cannot review the messages posted and is not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we at this forum reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless this PaceAdvantage.Com Discussion Board and their agents with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).

The PaceAdvantage.Com Discussion Boards are designed for members to express their opinions, viewpoints and testimonials on various events, products, and/or services based upon speculation, personal knowledge and factual information through use, therefore all views represented here allow no liability upon the publishers of this web site and the owners of said views assume no liability for any ill will resulting from these postings. The posts made here are for educational as well as entertainment purposes and as such anyone viewing this portion of the website must accept these views as statements of the author of that opinion and agrees to release the authors from any and all liability.

We at this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.

Please note that blatant unapproved advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are very inappropriate on this forum.

If you want to participate with the other horse racing enthusiasts on the PaceAdvantage.Com Discussion Board, you will need to register. Registration is free and only takes about 2 minutes. A significant reason for the success of the PaceAdvantage.Com Discussion Boards to date is our insistence that all participants obey the simple set of rules posted below.

  • You are not allowed to post the same message in multiple forums without permission from the PaceAdvantage.Com Moderator. Direct all such requests via e-mail to the PaceAdvantage.Com Board Administrator (==PA).
  • The registering of multiple user names is strictly prohibited. One person, one user name.
  • The use of profanity is not allowed on the PaceAdvantage.Com Discussion Board.
  • "Flaming" of other participants is strictly forbidden. This includes posts against software vendors, authors, selection services, etc. Civil conduct is a primary requirement for participation on the PaceAdvantage.Com Discussion Board.
  • "Spamming", in any form, is strictly forbidden.
  • You may not use the PaceAdvantage.Com Discussion Board to either advertise or promote commercial endeavors without permission from the PaceAdvantage.Com Administrator. Direct all such requests via e-mail to the PaceAdvantage.Com Board Administrator (==PA).
  • Special Note to software vendors, authors, selection services, etc., or any person or company that deals in products or services for sale. You are not allowed to post items for sale in this forum without permission from board Administrators. If you need promotion services, this forum can provide advertising options to suit any budget.  Contact for more information.
  • You may only include URLs or active links to commercial & non-commercial sites for the purpose of expanding on comments or providing additional information as part of regular forum interactions.
  • You agree not to use this forum to accuse anyone, any company or any product or service of being "stupid" or a "fraud" or to use a term like "snake oil" to describe a particular product, as such terms may be viewed as defamatory and abusive.
  • You agree to keep all threads ON TOPIC.  The posting of notes which appear designed to take a thread in an entirely different direction than what was originally intended will be moved or deleted immediately, with no questions asked in most cases.
  • Politically charged avatars and postings are strictly forbidden in any of the HORSE RACING topics.  The OFF-TOPIC forums have been specifically designed for just this sort of subject.  The administrator reserves the right to remove any avatar deemed unacceptable.
  • Again...No bashing. This is becoming more of a problem as the forum grows. Please remember this forum is here to help those who need it and to pass along useful information. Let's keep this a friendly place.
  • Private Messaging is a privilege. Please report any misuse or spamming to the PaceAdvantage.Com Board Administrator immediately.

The above rules will be strictly enforced. Continued violations may result in loss of PaceAdvantage.Com Discussion Board privileges and complaints being lodged with your Internet Service Provider.

Other than enforcing the above rules, the PaceAdvantage.Com management and staff does not attempt to control or validate any comments or recommendations provided by participants. As such, PaceAdvantage.Com is not responsible for any inaccuracies that may result in personal liability or monetary loss.

Polite queries will elicit polite and helpful responses, likewise, that ranting and raving, bashing, and insults will prompt commensurate responses. Ye shall reap what ye sow.

Remember that although I pride myself on my ability to provide multiple responses to questions and problems very rapidly, I do have a day job, and sometimes the demands of paid employment makes quick responses impossible. Please bear with me.


Privacy Notice

PaceAdvantage.Com values your privacy. To keep you informed, we have created this privacy statement that discloses our purposes and methods for online collection and use of information. This statement applies to all information collected through the PaceAdvantage.Com website and information gathered from any web pages that we host.

Types of Information Collected

Generally, personal information is not collected from visitors to the PaceAdvantage.Com website. However, in order to access certain special services, personal information is requested; those cases are described in more detail below.

Discussion Board Registration

PaceAdvantage.Com Discussion Board requires a valid e-mail address for users who want to participate on the message board. This allows us to protect our community from abusive postings and provides a verifiable point of contact should legal questions arise. At any time, you have the ability to keep your e-mail address hidden from other users by selecting that option within your user profile.

Also in the forum registration, you have the option of providing some additional information such as occupation, interests, and homepage URL. This information is made available to other bulletin board users to foster a sense of community. If you have any concerns about providing this information, simply leave the fields blank and your registration will still be processed.


Certain activities on the PaceAdvantage.Com website involve the use of "cookies" to facilitate your experience. This includes retention of your username and password for the message board and showing a default Topic View when you visit the forums. You have the option to turn these cookies off at any time by updating your user profile preferences. If your browser doesn’t support cookies, or if you have cookies turned off, these preferences will not be set.

Disclosure of Personal Information

PaceAdvantage.Com does not disclose your personally identifying information to any third parties for any purpose without your prior consent. All reasonable care is taken by staff handling personal information to ensure its security both offline and online. It is our policy to destroy server access and personal information provided during the technical support process upon completion of the technical support incident.

It’s also important to be aware that when you voluntarily provide personal information (e.g., last name, address, phone number) in a posting on the bulletin board, that information is publicly available and may be used by someone in a manner unintended by you. For that reason, we discourage the offering of any personally identifying information within the message board itself.

Privacy for Children Aged 12 and Under

Although the PaceAdvantage.Com website is targeted at a general adult audience, we welcome the participation of younger users with their parents’ consent. We strongly recommend that users 12 and under refrain from offering any personal information either in their user profile or in the message boards themselves, and we encourage parents to stay involved in the online life of their children.

Changing or Updating Personal Information

If you would like to update or change your user profile on the PaceAdvantage.Com message board, please click the USER CP link which is located on the menu bar at the top of every forum page.

If you have questions regarding your information, you can contact the Administrator at .

Resource Area for the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act
