K2 Community Site Terms of Use

The K2 Community Site (the “Site”) provided by K2 exists for the sole purpose of providing our customers a place to meet, interact, participate in discussions, and share ideas with each other. Like the community in which you live, the K2 community works best when everyone follows basic standards of conduct.
Your privilege to use and contribute to discussions depends on your compliance with the terms set forth below. By complying with these terms, you are assisting in creating the best possible community.
