Our Content:

The Site offers a forum, which includes a product and service overview ("Highlights"), where you may access recommendations of products and services by Home-security.com.

The information in our Highlights is provided strictly as a source of information for You and is provided merely as a convenience. It represents our opinion and analysis based on subjective/ objective criteria. It is recommended that you do your own research and investigation before engaging services with any company regardless of their listing. You agree to not hold Home-security.com, its members, managers, officers, directors, employees, or affiliates (collectively "Partners") liable for any statements, representations, errors or omissions, descriptions, comments, or opinions posted on the Site.

By developing and posting such Highlights, Home-security.com makes no representation or warranties as to the accuracy or factual basis of the Overviews. In compliance with federal law, all price quotes displayed on the Highlights are updated on at least a weekly basis. However, our evaluation process is a continued development; we may experiment with new processes for our evaluations and add or remove specific elements at any time. Home-security.com is a private company and is not affiliated with any government or non-profit organizations. Home-security.com receives compensation from several of the companies which it lists on the Website.

Advice, graphics, information, and images contained on this site are presented for general educational and informational purposes. They are not intended to be legal or other expert advice, recommendations, or services. The information contained on this site should not be considered exhaustive and should not be used in place of consultation with qualified professionals to meet your individual needs.

You assume the entire risk as to the accuracy, adequacy, completeness, currency, validity and quality of any information provided on this Site. While the information and recommendations contained on this site have been compiled from sources believed to be reliable, Home-security.com makes no guarantee as to, and assumes no responsibility for, the correctness, sufficiency, or completeness of any such information or recommendations. Home-security.com has no control over and does not warrant in any way that prices, taxes, products or descriptions provided by sellers, service providers, or other third parties, or any other content on this Site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. Home-security.com does not have any responsibility for, or liability related to, any products and services listed on this Site. You should direct any questions, complaints or claims related to any product or service to the appropriate seller or provider. Home-security.com is not responsible or liable for any decisions or actions you take or authorize third parties to take on your behalf based on information you receive as a user of the Site. Any information on the Site can change without notice.

We gather information from a variety of data sources including the government, nonprofit and commercial resources, and user-generated content. Despite the provision of these services, Home-security.com is in no way responsible for the accuracy, timeliness, efficacy or completeness of any information it may display or provide.

While Home-security.com provides you the opportunity to receive home security services information from our network of service providers, Home-security.com is not a security company or security service provider and does not provide any of the products or services featured on the Website. We may provide Website users with the opportunity to submit requests for, and share, information on a wide variety of products and services offered by certain service providers (each such service provider, a "Service Provider"; each such request, a "Request"). Once you provide us with the information required on our form, we attempt to match you with Service Providers to help you identify the type security service you are seeking. We are not a security provider and do not act as a security provider on the Website, and hence, we do not provide security services ourselves, nor do we endorse any companies or specific types of security services.

User Submissions:

As a user of this Site, You are responsible for your own communications. Therefore, do not do any of the following things:

  • transmit to us material that is copyrighted, unless You are the copyright owner or have the permission of the copyright owner;
  • send material that reveals trade secrets, unless You own them or have the permission of the owner;
  • send material that infringes on any other intellectual property rights of others or on the privacy or publicity rights of others;
  • send material that is obscene, defamatory, threatening, harassing, abusive, hateful, or embarrassing to another user or any other person or entity;

  • send advertisements or solicitations of business;

Home-security.com reserves the right to expel You and to prevent You further access to this Site for violating these Terms and Conditions terms or the law. The violation of any of these Terms and Conditions shall result in the immediate revocation of your right to access or use the Site or Site Material and obligates You to immediately destroy any copies of the Site Material in your possession.

Reviews and star ratings of Service Providers are based on information obtained by or submitted to Home-security.com by third parties and intended to be a starting point to gather information about Service Providers who may be suitable for a particular need. Assessments may vary by individual needs and experiences. A review or star rating is neither an endorsement of any particular Service Provider nor a guarantee of a Service Provider's quality, safety or results. Further, a review or star rating should not be considered a predictor of the outcome of any security-related services provided by such Service Provider. As such, users should not rely solely on a review or star rating in deciding whether to contact or engage any given Service Provider.

We do not pay customers for reviews. We do not reward reviewers based on whether their written analysis is positive or negative. Rather, we publish full and complete reviews from individuals without alteration except to remove personally identifying information. We may elect not to publish reviews that contain inappropriate or irrelevant content. Home-security.com is not responsible for any of the reviews or comments posted on this Site. Home-security.com does not share the opinions, views, or commentary of any testimonials on this site, which are strictly the views of the reviewer.
