Helper / Support / Greeter
================================

Since we have our own support team, we have no need of third party helpers, mentors, vigilante, security or other support groups. We would appreciate it, if "helpers/mentors", untagged before visiting 'Lazy Adams' SIM, so as to not confuse others.

================================
Second Life Destination Guide
================================

Lazy Adams carries out an official agreement to the 'Second Life - Destination Guide' guidelines. Its sole purpose is for the orientation of old / new residents visting 'Lazy Adams' / Second Life.
As such, these old / new residents are given access to the 'Lazy Adams' SIM, from the Social Island Portal / Destinations. Old / New residents are encouraged to integrate with the community in
'Lazy Adams' SIM.

================================
HUB / Landing Area - Lazy Adams
================================

This area is located by the fountain area, which is close to the gaming area. Priority in this area is for new users. New users visit here first, and as such we wish to give them the best initial experience and impression of Second Life / 'Lazy Adams'. It is expected that older residents in this area will conduct themselves appropriately. This means that conduct that gives a negative initial experience of Second Life / 'Lazy Adams' is not acceptable.

================================
Disruptive Residents / Avatars
================================

Lazy Adams is a privately owned SIM and access is not a rite of passage. We are not obligated to host any avatar we are uncomfortable with.

Lazy Adams will not host avatars that cause sustained disruption. This includes those with anti-social or abusive behaviour, members of groups and SIM known to be disruptive in 'Lazy Adams'; constant excessive avatar render weights (complexity) / scripts, excessively annoying for whatever reason, and those who are broadly offensive, continuously flouting covenant, vigilantes or hate groups, or those who are damaging to the performance and enjoyment of the SIM. The 'Avatar impact monitor' is located by the HUB area.

You have freedom of expression to discuss the subjects you wish to talk about. Free speech does not extend to subject matter and behaviour that is obviously going to cause distress or broad offense to the majority of other residents or denigrate the SIM and its members and staff. Expression of extremist fanaticism of political and religious views or avatars that represent extremism or fanaticism, that is likely to be distressing to the majority of residents, is considered disruptive behaviour.

Please refrain from using avatars of an unreasonably large size.
Please refrain from using scripted objects that contain sounds being played constantly.
Please refrain from using the 'SL Voice' to constantly spam sounds that may be generated from music / ambient background noises.
Please refrain from using the 'Shout' feature presented on your viewer in local nearby chat (certain areas are covered with a chat extender).

Singing and playing music over mic in hubs is not allowed. Although it would be great to hear you on the EVENTS FIELD or BEACH AREA.

================================
Voicing in Lazy Adams SIM
================================

Voice is enabled so residents can enjoy conversations with each other. However a certain etiquette is expected. Be respectful. Do not cause deliberate annoyance. Please do not hog the voice channel. Remember to give other people a chance to join in too. Those who "key-up and go for it", without ever pausing for breath or giving way to other people, should be encouraged to give it a periodic rest. Lazy Adams provides a beach area which is considered separate from the rest of the SIM. People who only talk and never listen, or monopolise the hub / main areas of the SIM, should be encouraged to visit the beach area where they can talk until the end of time without annoying everyone else. Same goes for screechy microphones!

================================
Biased Ruling / Accountability
================================

If you believe a member of our team has acted inappropriately, been unfair, intolerant or has acted outside of this covenant, please make your complaint via contacting either the
'Lazy Adams ~ GM' (shelly.avro) / 'Lazy Adams Owner' (x1rocket)

We insist to send these complaints in a notecard delivery format due to the Second Life capping system that is put in place.

================================
Nudity Guidelines in Lazy Adams
================================

Whilst nudity is not prohibited in Moderate regions / maturity ratings under the Second Life terms, it is discouraged. Nudity (genitals obviously on display) is not permitted in 'Lazy Adams' SIM. Sexual predators, pests, states of arousal or content that is broadly offensive or distressing is not permitted. Please report such residents to a staff of the support team, we have trained in
'Lazy Adams'.

================================
Vampires / Lycans in Lazy Adams
================================

No Role play. No Biting, No vampire/lycan activities, including promoting and advertising, whether it be in a profile or via titler. We will remove those who role play, recruit to group, teleport other users or cause a nuisance.

================================
Paid Advertising / AD Boards
================================

Please keep imagery and descriptions within the context of the region maturity rating. There is no refundment if you choose to not abide these guidelines.

================================
Applying to work at Lazy Adams
================================

Each venue has its own application procedure. Please contact the club manager(s) to discuss vacancies.

We hope that you will enjoy working with us and stay forever. We also recognise and respect that some people are more transient than others and will leave and move on for various reasons, including circumstances and career moves.

Parting is such sweet sorrow. Whether you loved it or hated it; endings are inevitably a time of mixed emotion and heightened sensitivity.

We ask that if our working relationship ends for whatever reason, good or bad, that both parties have a chance to reflect, giving everyone time to adjust to change. As a sign of an amicable parting, we request that if you leave the team, you do not visit the SIM for 21 days. This cool down period helps to avoid inadvertently causing distress to each other.

================================
Terms of Association on GRID
================================

Lazy Adams is a privately owned SIM and is not affiliated, nor related to any other grids or past involvement from staff that were previously hired from 'TheLondonSIMS'. We have no associations with any real life companies. We are innovative people and from time to time, other entities hang to our coat tails and insert our brand in their search terms or land.

================================
Rental(s) GuideLines / Agreement
================================

Please contact x1rocket or LARentals, in-world for support.

Lazy Adams is an exclusive and desirable SIM. When renting from 'Lazy Adams', we ask for common courtesy / decency when using such service that is readily accessible / available to residents.

Please pay rent on time. Arrears are at your own risk. Our rental system will start to remind you 3 days prior to your rental expiring, but ultimately it is your responsibility to ensure that your payments are up to date. We do not offer a period of grace. We will not be held responsible for the loss or condition of returned inventory. Your renewal may be declined if you constantly operate in arrears.

Rez inside the boundaries of your property only. Do not place objects on sidewalks / pavements near your store. Please do not rez on the outside of exterior walls.

Stay within your agreed prim limit. The rental system will remind you if you go over prim. We reserve the right to return objects to bring you within your limit at any time unless contacted. If you need more prims, please contact us for an adjustment to your rental BEFORE rezzing over the agreed limit. Sometimes when regions are full, we do not have the capacity to allocate more prims.

Please avoid excessive scripted objects and those known to cause lag. Please do not run needless scripted objects.

The use of temp rezzers, zero prim rezzers, holographic rezzers of any description is not permitted.

For best rendering speed, keep texture resolution at 512x512. 1024x1024 graphics will be slow to rez and your store will appear grey for a long time and you could miss potential sales.

Please use signage that is within keeping with the appearance of other stores around you. Please avoid "blinging" out your neighbours. We are happy to help you with signage. Please do not "prim-over" the external design of your store, or add external extensions, modifications or awnings to the property.

Please do not post ads for your store in the 'Lazy Adams' groups. If you require additional advertising in the group or using other methods, contact us, it is a free service and we are happy to help.

The use of scripted agents that take up an avatar 'space' on regions is not permitted without prior consent.

Please refrain from using looped repetitive sounds in your store. Whilst it might create ambience for you, it can have a negative impact on neighbouring stores and can cause annoyance.

We cannot offer exclusivity of brand to franchise resellers. If you decide to set up store reselling third party products, it is possible that someone else within the SIM is also selling the same range. Think carefully and do some research before setting up a store and avoid setting up a brand that already exists within the same SIM.

A resident may not rent more than 2 stores within the SIM without prior agreement.
A resident may not rent more than 3 advertisement boards within the SIM without prior agreement.

If the space is left empty for an unreasonable period of time without notice, then it will considered abandoned and the lease will be ended without refund. Please do not rent space and then defer setting up.

If a lease is terminated due deliberate and flagrant violation of these rental terms and conditions, inappropriate conduct, abandonment, or breach of SL Terms of Service, refunds will not be given.

No refund or transfer of rent is issued if a tenant decides to terminate their rental.

Please be aware that 'Lazy Adams' is an ever evolving, living and breathing SIM. As such we reserve the right to modify the layout and content at any time, to add, remove and streamline facilities, modify landing points, agent limits, add and remove parcels and districts, for the intended good of all our mutual businesses.
