Links and Search Results
The Site may automatically produce search results that reference or link to third-party sites throughout the World Wide Web. FriendsEAT.com has no control over these sites or the content within them. FriendsEAT.com cannot guarantee, represent, or warrant that the content contained in these sites is accurate, legal, and/or inoffensive. FriendsEAT.com does not endorse the content of any third-party site, nor do we warrant that it will not contain viruses or otherwise impact your computer. By using the Site to search for or link to another site, you agree and understand that you may not make any claim against FriendsEAT.com for any damages or losses, whatsoever, resulting from your use of the Site to obtain search results or to link to another site. If you have a problem with a link from the Site, please notify FriendsEAT.com at [email protected], and FriendsEAT.com will investigate your claim and take any actions FriendsEAT.com deems appropriate at our sole discretion.
Business listings located on FriendsEAT.com are selected for display in search results based primarily on their content in relation to the user-provided search terms. Consequently, both customer and non-customer listings will be included in a search results list, and FriendsEAT.com will not discriminate based on whether a business is a customer with regard to placement or inclusion in the business listings. FriendsEAT.com customers do not pay to be included in certain search result listings or to retain a specific ranking. However, due to the fact that FriendsEAT.com customers typically provide more content relative to their non-customer counterparts (e.g., in the form of offers, business biographies, etc.), it is possible that FriendsEAT.com customers will be displayed at a higher ranking in a search results page.
FriendsEAT.com customer listings may be rotated within the search results due to a number of factors, none of which are determined by paid inclusion or paid placement. Thus, such variable placement of FriendsEAT.com customers is not intended to displace non-customer search results placement or inclusion. Indeed, non-customers with a good deal of quality content could appear higher on search result returns than FriendsEAT.com customers.
Although FriendsEAT.com cannot monitor the conduct of its users off the Site, it is a violation of these rules to use any information obtained from this Site in order to harass, abuse, or harm another person, or in order to contact, advertise to, solicit, or sell to any user without his/her prior explicit consent.
