NeonDrum terms of service

Plain English Version
We distribute material you submit ("Submitted Content") to other websites based on the target market for your release. We are a business-to-business distribution service and will not distribute purely consumer-focussed news.
- What happens to the content once it is posted on the other websites is outside of our control and we do not take responsibility for those websites or for any third-party interaction with the content, for example, posting of comments, ranking, placement of context-sensitive advertising and so on.
- When you register, you agree that you're a bona fide representative of the company for whom you are submitting content. We take no responsibility for authenticating your claim as a representative.
- We'll do our very best to distribute your Submitted Content to your requirements but if we fail to do so we will only be liable for refunding the payment we received for that submission and not for anything else.
- We reserve the right to refuse to publish content on the grounds of taste and decency.
