While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent, the archive administrators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the provided data being compromised, corrupted, or lost.

6. All stories must be correctly rated. This archive uses Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) ratings. The ratings are:
G: General Audiences. The story is acceptable for all readers.

In such an event, the author will receive notification of the correction or corrections in the acceptance message. Another example is if an author submits a story that lists every character in the story instead of just the main characters. Since it is clearly stated in the archive rules that no more than three main characters can be listed in the character’s list per story, the admins may remove all other characters that they feel are not main characters.
8. Archive administrators have the right to reject stories or chapters if the submitted stories do not comply with the archive rules and/or TOS, or that contain minor mistakes that the administrators don’t have the time to correct themselves.

They will then be able to fix the story and resubmit it.
