The information on this website is provided by SelfAssemblySites and while we endeavour to keep the information up to date as useful and correct as possible, we make no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability with respect to the website or the information, products, services, or related graphics contained on the website for any purpose. Though we continually work to make our information as applicable as possible, any reliance you place on such information is therefore strictly at your own risk.

In no event will we be liable for any loss or damage including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss or damage, or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of, or in connection with, the use of this website.

Through this website you are able to link to other websites which are not under the control of SelfAssemblySites. We have no control over the nature, content and availability of those sites. The inclusion of any links does not necessarily imply a recommendation or endorse the views expressed within them.

Affiliate Disclosure

Our site includes affiliate links - these are links whereby we may receive remuneration in the form of commission payment (or sometimes credit towards services) from some vendors if you purchase goods or services after clicking through that link. Some affiliate programs we are members of include Amazon, Commission Junction, Clickbank, iStockPhoto, ThemeForest, and others.

We have chosen to only recommend products that we use or have thoroughly researched. Our credibility online means everything to us and we take our responsibility as affiliates very seriously. For any affiliate links, we make reviews and any and all recommendations are in good faith.

We don't recommend or often don't even mention sites or services we deem to be of poor quality. If we have reviewed and recommended a site it's because we were impressed and believed it had value for us and for our members.
some links from our site are affiliate links for which we may receive compensation.

The legal disclaimer bit: unfortunately we have no control over the content or the nature of 3rd party sites, or any changes in their products, services, descriptions or delivery. In no event will we be liable or responsible for any loss, damage, offence or disruption caused by any affiliate site or any site that links to or from SelfAssemblySites. Any reliance you place on such information on third party sites or affiliates, is strictly at your own risk.

Always do due diligence research before any purchase online, and if you're not sure, feel free to get in touch and ask us about any product or service that we recommend. If you have questions about any affiliations on this website we are more than happy to clarify or provide additional details if necessary.

Our Own Affiliate Program

We also run an affiliate program ourselves for SelfAssemblySites. We require our affiliates to fully disclose that they are being compensated through their endorsements, and to be completely honest and transparent in any reviews, not to claim to speak on our behalf or try to support customers publicly or privately, and never to lie about what our services provide.

We take pride in our business and will be swift to ban anyone that breaks the rules from our affiliate program.

The legal bit: In no event do we accept liability of any offers, deals, suggestions or statements made by any affiliate sites linking to us. Any reliance you place on such information on third party sites or affiliates, is therefore strictly at your own risk. We encourage you to read our website offers, read our guarantee and not base any assumptions or conclusions regarding SelfAssemblySites on information on third party websites.

Provision of Service

Every effort is made to keep the website up and running smoothly. However, SelfAssemblySites takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the website being temporarily unavailable due to technical issues beyond our control.

You may request feedback on your website in our site reviews forum. If you post a site for critique, please don't complain if you get bad reviews - you want people to see it, you have to allow for the possibility that they wont like it. We would prefer if all criticism is constructive i.e. giving reasons to why something doesn't work, and offering alternative solutions. Do not take negative feedback personally - most often the person who posts the feedback is trying to help you improve the site, so take their criticism from that point of view. It's always a bad idea to be aggressive when you don't hear what you want to hear.

With site reviews, comment and feedback we happily entertain and engage lively discussion and opinions can be positive, neutral or negative, but they must always be respectful, polite and not abusive. For comments or activities that are borderline, at our discretion we will give a warning to the individual responsible. We don't expect everyone to agree, but we do expect everyone to be civil.

We reserve the right to close accounts for any reason or activity we believe to be illegal or disruptive to the use and enjoyment of the site and its discussions and tutorials for ourselves or other members. Our policy is to provide pro-rata refunds if that occurs, unless there are legal issues with doing so.

Scope of SelfAssemblySites

SelfAssemblySites is focused on training our members to be able to execute the core necessary tasks in setting up an average website. We deem an average website to be what the majority of websites include and require. A list of these modules can be found on the Join page.  While we want to start our members on the road to becoming uber-ninja-godlike web designers, it's a big subject and we can't teach everything, and nor do we claim to. We attempt to answer as many and as wide a variety of questions on the community forums and in as timely a manner as possible, occasionally we will have to decline on explanations that are deemed outside the scope of SelfAssemblySites. In these rare cases, we will make efforts to redirect the query so the member may find an answer but no guarantee can be made nor responsibility taken for the accuracy of the third party advice or information nor do we guarantee to answer every single question asked on the community forums while we make honest efforts to do so.

How we use cookies

Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

More Legal Bits and Pieces
