Forum Rules and Regulations (Terms of Service)
Does Free-Speech (First Amendment) apply to private companies, organizations, online social media, and online forums such as NavarreBeachLife.com?
No. US Courts have ruled that the First Amendment applies to the government - to protect individuals from government censorship. While the text of the First Amendment says “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech,” it means that no federal, state or local government official can infringe on your free-speech rights. NavarreBeachLife.com Forum a privately owned online organization is not a government or state and therefore is not subject to the requirements of the First Amendment.
