Terms & Conditions
TERMS AND CONDITIONS of Bedbugger.com
If you read, post, or comment on Bedbugger.com, you agree to these Terms and Conditions. The Terms and Conditions may be updated at any time. Please review them periodically to be sure you are aware of such changes. Note that if you use the forums, you must also read and abide by the Forum Rules.
Bedbugger.com is offered “as is,” without warranty. We are not responsible for any bad ideas, inaccuracies, or errors which are contained on the site.
People who ID bugs for users on the forums are giving their time freely, without compensation, and no one is screening their responses to your post. People may wrongly identify your bug. Some forum users are experts, others are not. But even among the experts, there may be difficulty in delineating between, say, a bed bug and a bat bug or swallow bug, or a photo may be misidentified due to the quality of your photo or the identifier’s experience. Bedbugger.com cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies.
Please seek professional help in detecting and treating bed bugs, in diagnosing possible medical conditions, or in dealing with legal matters.
No advice here should be construed as “professional” advice, even if the person offering it claims to be a professional.
We are not liable for any harm which may come to you or your property based on actions you take (or don’t take) after reading or posting to the site.
The owner of the site is not responsible for the opinions posted here by other bloggers, forum participants, or blog commenters. You are responsible for what you say on Bedbugger.com.
You should carefully consider what you choose to share via comments or forum posts. The forums and blog comments are indexed by google and others can find and read what you post.
Keeping your personally identifiable information private is your responsibility; it cannot easily be undone. Please do not post anything you will regret later. Consider chooosing a username that does not identify you, and do not give out emails, phone numbers, or real names. Some people later regret mentioning their towns. It’s now possible, on a case by case basis, to change usernames if you have used a handle which identifies you easily. However, search engines like Google will continue to hold the information for some time.
If you make a mistake once and disclose something about yourself which you should not and need a post or part of a post to be deleted, this is not a problem, but please do not ask for your account to be removed or for all of your posts to be deleted. This is extremely difficult, a lot of work, and not fair on other users for a variety of reasons.
Please do not post anything on Bedbugger.com which you know to be false, or which you do not know to be true, or make suggestions which you do not know to be legal. Please do not harrass, threaten, or stalk users of the site via private messages, or public posts. And, it should go without saying, please be nice to others. Please do not post personally identifying information about other people. Please do not repost others’ private messages or emails to you without explicit permission. Please do not post images or text copyrighted by others, unless you’re clearly quoting someone (and linking back to them).
We do not moderate comments or forum posts.
However, we reserve the right to delete anything, anytime, for any reason, at our discretion, without explanation.
However, if something is not deleted, this does not constitute approval by the site owner.
Bedbugger may, in its sole discretion, with or without notice, suspend or terminate your use of this site and/or remove or discard any content on the site, for any reason and without limitation. Bedbugger may also bar you from any future access to the site. We may change, suspend, or terminate the website at any time, for any reason, without notice.
FOR THOSE WHO SELL PRODUCTS OR SERVICES OR WORK IN THE INDUSTRY
People who provide bedbug-related products and services are welcome to read and comment on the blog. Disclosure is a good thing.
However, advertising is only allowed by arrangement and in the space provided. Do not advertise in the forums or in the blog comments; do not spam us with links to your product or service, or post comments that are veiled sales pitches. (Enquire by email if you’re not sure what’s appropriate.)
Please do not troll the forums looking for clients. If you share your wisdom, some are bound to contact you, but you need not solicit such contact, and this is strongly discouraged.
Never talk about a company you own or work for (or have other relationships with) as if you are a customer (yes, we can tell, and it may be very embarrassing for you when we do). Disclose your relationship with companies you mention.
We reserve the right to bill you for commercial space used by you if you ignore these warnings!
