The Geek Directory Terms

Funny Gadgets

WEBSITE TERMS OF USE: Instead of writing 15 pages worth of legal jargon that is vague enough to cover anything, (like a war on any country beginning with "I"), maybe a little clarity would be preferable? So I suppose that means that the terms and conditions of the terms and conditions are: that if you don't like, or don't understand, the terms and conditions of this site then don't use this site.

This site is for general informational purposes only and contains many observations and/or opinions of our staff and those of third parties who have submitted information and articles to the site either of their own accord or at our request. At no time do we claim to be advisors and the information on this site is not promoted as such. We accept no responsibility or liability for information on this site that is incorrect or deemed misleading - including, but not limited to: spelling errors, broken hyperlinks, out of date voucher codes and so on. No-one is perfect but we are trying our best. Be aware products and situations change regularly and that even though best efforts are made to keep the site up to date, some of the information may now no longer be valid.

In short, this site is for personal use. The information is not designed to be used for any purpose or to influence its users in anyway. By using this site, browsing the information and/or using the various facilities available you agree that you do not hold us liable for anything you may come across on the site. You are responsible whether you choose to use or act on the information provided and you are responsible for any outcomes that may occur from that. If you choose to base a purchase or action on information from this site (either provided by our staff or by third parties) then it has been your choice to do so. You didn't pay us for advice and we didn't twist your arm.

Consumer reviews listed on this site are moderated. That means that some reviews may be deleted from time to time if they are deemed to be breaching our review submission guidelines such as extensive capitalisations of words, swearing or simply ranting.

The Traffic Exchange Directory: Any traffic/link exchange directory hosted on this site or on one of our affiliated sites which you may be directed to is managed by human editors. That means that any unfair use such as spamming the directory, adding illegal or offensive links/text, or adding several different sites with identical content etc. will result in those links being removed. We claim the right to decide what we consider to be spam and/or offensive in this matter. From a user point of view, any links that you see in the resource sections of such directories are not the property of this site and no responsibility is taken for the content added or the website linked to from that directory. Much of the directory is automated so some offensive material may be present from time to time before being noticed by a human editor or reported by a site visitor. We would ask that if you see anything questionable that you report it immediately.

Any other advertisements you see on the site are exactly that, 'advertisements', we also do not accept any responsibility or liability (getting the point yet?) for the content of either the adverts themselves, how they are presented or the websites, products and/or services of the advertiser. As you would expect, advertisements mean that they are not endorsements or recommendations. Any banner, image or button you see that refers to making a purchase will redirect to a third party's website who is paying for that banner, button or image to be there. We do not sell any electronics or other geek services via this website, if you do not wish to be forwarded to a retailer for the products shown then simply do not click the images, banners or buttons on the website. You are still welcome to view the information on this site free of charge but not to reproduce or reprint the information shown.

There, that was pretty painless and you didn't have to read for three hours straight and wear out your dictionary. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch: Email Us
