The latest Terms will be posted on the Site, and you should always review them prior to using the Site.

B. The Website

4. Consumerlitigations.com Is a Venue; Third-Party Content
The CLS Site is a venue for informational and educational purposes to allow Customers to ask questions and Experts to answer them. Users of the Site,  the content in questions, answers, requests for information, responses, profiles, signatures, qualifications, comments, and posts in the Expert Forum and other places where Users communicate on the Site ("Posts"). The Experts determine which questions to answer; Experts are not employees or agents of CLS but are, like Customers, simply Users of the Site.

EMERGENCY QUESTIONS AND CRISIS SITUATIONS (particularly regarding medical or mental health issues) should be directed immediately by telephone or in-person to qualified professionals (e.g. in the U.K., call 999). The Site is not the appropriate venue to deal with such situations.

5. Posts Not Private or Confidential; Anonymity

The Site is an Internet-based venue. Information submitted in the content of your questions, answers, requests for information, responses, profiles, signatures, qualifications, comments, and posts in the Expert Forum and other places where Users communicate on the Site (collectively "Posts") is not private or confidential and is seen to be placed in the public domain in a published form and may be read, collected, and used by others. To better protect your privacy, use an anonymous user name and do not include information regarding your identity or contact information in your Posts.

Forum your responsibility

By leaving comments in the CLS FORUM YOU are responsible for the contents contained in the comments and agree to be held 100% responsible for whatever happens due to the comments and agree to pay any damages for loss of business and legal costs incurred by consumer litigation service (cls) or any other cost involved in dealing with these comments. If you do not agree to these terms do not use the Forum, by leaving a comment in the Forum you are showing you have read and agree to these terms for using the Forum

CLS accept no responsibility for any contents contained in any comment which are left on the forum page 

6. No Reliance on Term "Expert"; Verification
CLS can contract  third-party services to verify certain of the credentials of Experts in some but not all of the categories. CLS does not perform these verifications. The results are only as accurate as the information provided to and by the third-party verification services, as of the time of the providing of information to and by the third-party verification services. User verification on the Internet is difficult; CLS makes efforts to verify, but cannot warrant or guarantee, a User's purported identity. For these reasons, CLS cannot and does not represent, warrant or guarantee the truthfulness or accuracy of the credentials or identities of and provided by Users including Experts.

Throughout this Site, certain terms including "Expert", "Specialist", "Consultant" or "Advisor" may be used to refer to Users who answer questions on the site, by phone or Email. Use of these terms provides no assurance that the person answering your question has any expertise or qualifications relating to the particular category or to give such response. Information provided about Experts is provided by those Experts and not verified by CLS, with the limited exceptions noted above.

CLS will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by your reliance on any information or content contained in Posts.

7. Information leaflets, email questions are  Not Advice; No Client-Professional Relationship

The laws, regulations, other governing authorities, standards, practices and procedures that apply to your particular question may differ depending on your location and information typically discovered through in-person evaluations or visits. Experts in some categories may be licensed, certified, educated, employed by or have experience in only particular jurisdictions.

You may not assign the Terms to any other party. CLS shall not be deemed to have waived any of its rights or remedies unless such waiver is in writing and signed by CLS.

The section titles in the Terms are solely used for the convenience of the parties and have no legal or contractual significance.
