RULES OF CONDUCT
The EXPERIENCE is public, which means that anyone may potentially be able to see your comments, photos, videos, content and posts (collectively, “Posts”) that are submitted in connection with the EXPERIENCE. While we want to foster healthy sharing, we encourage everyone to:
- Stay on topic, use common courtesy and be respectful of others
- Submit your own original content, and avoid content that you know or have reason to believe may be fraudulent
- Not post someone else's copyrighted work unless you have permission
- Never post personal, identifying or confidential information (such as full names, phone numbers, email addresses, social security numbers, or account numbers)
The EXPERIENCE is monitored by Bank of America employees or individuals acting on behalf of the bank. All Posts will be reviewed to ensure that they comply with our Rules. We reserve the right to disregard, reject or ignore Posts that we deem are abusive, inflammatory or otherwise inappropriate. While the EXPERIENCE is monitored, because the experience is public and anyone can participate, we cannot be responsible for views expressed other than our own.
- The EXPERIENCE is meant as a way for sharing your support for the MLB Memory Bank Program, and is not a substitute channel for services or general questions. Please visit bankofamerica.com for more information about specific products and services.
- Submission of an acceptable Post to the EXPERIENCE does not guarantee its display across Bank of America or partner-owned sites/social media channels. Bank of America and its partners reserve the right to use discretion in selecting content for republication.
- Do not post or transmit material you do not have the right to post or transmit under law (such as copyright, right of publicity, trade secrets or securities).

- Bank of America reserves the right to ban any user from the EXPERIENCE without prior written notice or consent for violations of these rules. Any Posts which we deem to be criminal in nature, or which instigate or imply violence toward any person or property may be reported to the proper authorities.

For the benefit of healthy sharing, we ask that Posts remain on topic. This means that Posts should relate to the topic of celebrating baseball memories and experiences. We may disregard negative comments about Bank of America and/or our competitors that aren't relevant and don't add to the overall experience. We may also reject Posts that we deem to be off topic, including solicitations.
