Your Relationship with Companies and Individuals Appearing in the ISF Forum Business Directory

All interactions with companies or individuals appearing in the ISF Forum Business Directory, including payment and delivery of related goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between You and those companies and/or individuals. You agree not to hold the ISF Forum liable for any type of loss, damage, cost or expense that occurs as a result of any such interactions.

Inclusion of a company or individual in the ISF Forum Business Directory should not be considered an ISF Forum recommendation or endorsement of the services or goods provided by those entities, or of the companies or individuals appearing in the Business Directory. The ISF Forum Business Directory listings are provided as a free promotional vehicle to individuals and companies who are paid subscribers to the ISF Forum-affiliated ISF Forum Library web site and as a convenience to visitors and registered members of the ISF Forum web site.

The sole purpose of the ISF Forum Busines Directory listings is to raise awareness of the companies and individuals offering video calibration and other home theater-oriented consulting services or the sale of goods related to home theater in various locations around the world. You should perform the same rigor in your research and due diligence of ISF Forum Business Directory-listed entities as you would for any other individual or company with whom you would consider doing business.

Customer Reviews of Parties Listed in the ISF Forum Business Directory

Visitors or registered members of the ISF Forum who enter into business transactions with individuals or companies appearing in the ISF Forum Business Directory are encouraged to provide feedback in the form of written reviews for those individuals or companies who accept customer review comments.

In submitting reviews of ISF Forum Business Directory entities, you should exercise good judgment and common sense in your characterization of the services and goods that were provided to you. As a general principle, a customer review should not be the primary means of notifying an individual or company listed in the ISF Forum Business Directory of dissatisfaction with the services or goods provided.

Specifically, a customer review should never be the first notice that a company or individual receives that you were dissatisfied with the services or goods provided to you. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the services or goods provided to you by any individual or company included in the ISF Forum Business Directory, you are encouraged to contact the individual or company involved and attempt to resolve your issues directly. Failure to do this prior to posting a negative customer review may result in suspension of the review until an attempt to address your dissatisfaction is made, or removal or redaction of your comments if such contact is not attempted.

On the other hand, it is considered reasonable and appropriate that you note in detail any specific efforts that you made to make the individual or company aware of your lack of satisfaction with the services or goods provided, and particularly where you believe issues were not treated in a serious and professional manner or where those issues were not resolved to your satisfaction.
