terms and conditions and disclaimer for lingobongo.com

Ok, this is the serious bit: you are supposed to have read all of this if you want to use this website in any way- it's incredibly dry and boring, but basically it says we are not liable in any way for anything and not to copy us or do anything else that's bad. Of course it may contain a clause saying you owe us your first born child, a kidney and a round of rum and cokes, but you'll just have to read it first to find out then, won't you?

...Welcome to our website. If you continue to browse and use this website you are agreeing to comply with and be bound by the following terms and conditions of use, which together with our privacy policy govern lingobongo.com's relationship with you in relation to this website.

...so there you go: anyone who has read all the way up to here definitely deserves not to have any problems, although they should possibly think about getting out of the house a bit more at the weekends. To this standard off-the-shelf disclaimer and terms and conditions bit we'd like to add a couple of our own points...

First, and most importantly: if you do not like our website then just don't use it! ...seriously, we do our very best to make this as good an experience as possible, we try to stop idiots posting rubbish on here, we try to protect peoples data as much as we can and we try very hard not to offend anyone, but if you don't like it then just use another site - there are 25 billion other websites in the world, all accessible from your web-device, so we repeat - if you donít like our website then just do not use it - simple as that.

...STUFF NOT TO DO... Please do not do any of the following as they are offensive/illegal/downright bad things to do...

MESSING ABOUT WITH LINGOBONGO... Please tell us about anyone you think is abusing lingobongo.com by contacting us at info@lingobongo.com : obviously we do our best to keep idiots off our site. That said, we cannot accept any liability or responsibility for any illegal use or abuse of lingobongo.com by some of the monkeys who we get on here.

You must be 16 or over to use the INTERCAMBIOS / LANGUAGE EXCHANGE section: this is for legal and ethical reasons (we're not sure we'd like our own teenage daughters to meet anyone like us...)

LIABILITY...Anyone using this site agrees that we are not responsible for any of the content of the website or for anything they or anyone who uses it does. If for some reason you get run over by an escaped elephant on your way to a private class or axe-murdered by an intercambio you met in a dark alleyway then we really cannot be held liable or responsible, but we will of course buy you a commiseration pint at J and Js.

For the security of our users, we automatically record the IP of every advert, email and advert-report that we receive.

We reserve the right, at any time, and without any notice, to delete users adverts, for any reason, without any necessity for explanation. We accept no liability, explicit or implied, for any resulting damages, financial or otherwise.

...ok, that's it, glad we got that out of the way, if you have actually read this far then it might be an idea to think about putting on your jacket, switching off your computer, and going out and getting some friends and a social life...
