ReportScam.com encourages and facilitates open and honest communication between parties posting reports and complaints and the entities to which those reports and/or complaints pertain, and is also intended to provide any parties accessing the website (“Users” as defined hereunder) with some general information related to the businesses which appear there. ReportScam.com is a ‘free-to-use’ site and service, and no material, statements or content of any kind appearing on the website or any linked or related webpage or other available medium is an opinion or representation of ReportScam.com, or any of its members, managers or agents (including any heirs or assigns) unless the same is represented as such or directly produced by a source which we wholly own and control.
2.1 ReportScam.com Website
The ReportScam.com Website (the Site) is the online vehicle, including any Content (as defined hereunder), through which ReportScam.com operates its Service and System, as well provides User access and functionality to both reporting/posting individuals and responding business parties.
2.2 ReportScam.com Service
The ReportScam.com Service (the Service) is the functional portion of our Site which allows Users to:
I. post information related to direct experiences with businesses either as a report on business practices or as a complaint;
II. view the posts/responses of other Users;
III. view and access user accounts
IV. and/or view limited public profile information of other Users, namely other businesses.
2.4 Account Holder
All Account Holders are deemed to be Users of our Site. Registration as an Account Holder is required for the posting and/or transmission of any reports, complaints, responses or the like. Further, account verification (as discussed below at the section entitled “Accounts”) is required for any Account Holder to modify postings and/or communicate with any other Account Holder or for any party to provide any response or to be qualified on our Site as a Business Representative (defined hereunder). As an Account Holder there are certain terms and conditions contained in these TOU that you must abide by, which in some cases may apply above and beyond the general terms and conditions applying to all Users. Without limitation such provisions may include: Restrictions upon Age, Password and User Name Requirements, Account Information Submission Requirements, Posting and Response Regulations, User-to-User Communication Policies, Report/Complaint Status Management, Account Termination, and various other rules as may apply. It is important that you read the entirety of these TOU before creating an account because upon creating an account you will be accepting all provisions in these TOU that apply to you.
2.5 Reporting Parties
A Reporting Party is any User who utilizes our Site to submit a report upon or complaint about any business or an individual. Any party doing so is considered to be a Reporting Party, but unless specifically discussed as otherwise in these TOU, references to a Reporting Party shall be considered a reference to a verified Account Holder. Notwithstanding the forgoing, any provision in these TOU regulating the rights, responsibilities, conduct or the like of a Reporting Party shall apply to any party acting as such, regardless of whether or not that Reporting Party is a verified Account Holder, an unverified Account Holder or not an Account Holder. As a Reporting Party you will be subject to certain terms and conditions set forth in these TOU which exceed the terms and conditions applicable to Users generally. Terms which are specific to Account Holders in these TOU are set forth in various sections below; all terms and conditions in these TOU still apply to you as a Reporting Party unless otherwise specified. It is important that you read the entirety of these TOU before submitting any report or complaint or otherwise acting or allowing action as a Reporting Party because upon so doing you will be accepting all provisions in these TOU that apply to you, whether or not such terms exceed the terms generally applicable to all Users.
A submission is any information provided to us by any User with the apparent intent or purpose (determinable solely at our discretion) of providing content amounting to a report or complaint. Once a submission is reviewed by us and approved and/or otherwise posted to the publically accessible/viewable portions of our Site, it shall be considered a post. Once a post exists, it may have a status of either “Unresolved” or “Resolved.” Post status designation is further discussed hereunder.
A report is any submission/post from a Reporting Party which is submitted with the apparent intent or purpose (determinable solely at our discretion) of providing information concerning suspicious, dishonest or otherwise questionable business practices.
Content is any material, existing or having existed on our Site in any fashion consistent with these TOU from any origin and in any form whether digital, electronic, posted, deleted, archived, embedded, linked or contained in any subpage of our Site or existing as data, designs, text, images, graphics or code whether object, source or otherwise, and without limitation may generally be considered material which we have provided on or as part of our Site or which Users have provided, posted or uploaded to it. Where specifically referenced, Third Party Content shall be considered any of the same as described immediately above and which is specifically provided, posted, uploaded or otherwise submitted by a User of our Site.
Terms for All Users
The terms and conditions in this Section apply to your use of our Site, Service and System as do all other provisions in these TOU unless specifically designated otherwise. As a User, if you subsequently act as or become a Reporting Party, Responding Party and/or an Account Holder (verified or not), you will still be subject to these and all other terms in these TOU unless we specifically give written indication to the contrary.

If your request appears reasonable, we may review it and take action accordingly.

Terms for Reporting Parties
As discussed above, if you make any submission of any kind with the apparent intent of reporting suspicious business practices or a business related complaint, you are considered a Reporting Party. Without limitation, the terms and conditions contained in this, Part IV of these TOU, apply specifically to you; other portions of these TOU may also still apply.
4.1 Submission/Posting Process
The ReportScam.com Site is intended to facilitate submissions/posts in the following fashion and unless otherwise specified in writing the process of submitting and having a report/complaint posted shall work as follows:
I. When you access our Site there will be sub-page available for submissions, accessible either from our homepage (first-time Users) or from your account page (Account Holders). Upon accessing the submission page you will be prompted to fill out various information for your submission, (Submission Requirements are described hereunder).
II. Upon filling out the required information for your submission you may click the “Submit” button. You may be prompted to certify that your submission complies with the requirements/guidelines regarding submissions and if submitting as a first-time User you will be prompted to create an account, (Account Creation/Verification is described hereunder).
III. Once a submission is made, we may review the submission at any time (but are under no obligation to do so). Review of submissions by ReportScam.com for approval before posting or approval thereafter is a right reserved by us, but no warranties or guarantees of appropriateness or adherence to these TOU as a result of any such review is made by us in any event.
Ensuring that your submissions comply with our content and conduct guidelines and any other provisions in these TOU is solely your responsibility and you agree to indemnify, defend and otherwise hold us harmless for any failure on your part to do so.
IV. Upon our receipt and acceptance of your submission (by review/approval or otherwise), your submission shall be classified as either a “report” or a “complaint” and will subsequently be posted to the appropriate submission category on the publically available portion(s) or our Site. During the submission process you will be required to designate your submission as either a “report” or a “complaint” but if, upon review, we find your chosen designation to be inaccurate we may either change the designation and post to the correct section accordingly without notice to you, or we may reject your submission.
4.2 Account Creation and Verification
When you make a submission as a first time User you will be prompted to create an account. This prompt may be provided to you via an email (which you must provide to make any submission) and/or via you begin transported to a separate registration page following your initial submission. You will be required to follow the instructions for account creation and fill-out all information fields unless they are designated as "optional." Upon submission of your account creation information you will then be required to verify your submitted info and your status as the intended Account Holder. Verification shall be accomplished by entering a six-digit verification code on the account verification page of our Site; the six-digit code will be emailed to you after you initially submit your account registration information.
You do not have to create an account or verify it in order to make any initial submission and in some cases your submissions may become posts without your account being verified; however no submissions shall become posts absent account creation and any time you make a submission without being logged in you will be prompted to submit account creation information again and asked to verify thereafter. Further, without a verified account you will not be able to make any updated posts to your initial submission nor will you be able to communicate with any concerned business/Responding Party and because disability/failure to do so is counter to the resolution purposes of ReportScam.com, we reserve the right to delete your post(s), reject your submission(s) and/or take any remedial action we deem necessary including but not necessarily limited to the removal or amendment of any profile, profile element, or any matter or related element such as a Star Rating or “Resolved” / “Unresolved” status.
All accounts for Reporting Parties and all account features currently available are free to create and free to use and are provided “as is” by us without any warranty of any kind.

We do not condone reports/complaints/communications which are made by parties that did not interact with the concerned business or parties themselves and are not reporting on or complaining or communicating about an experience that they themselves had, and such submissions/posts may be immediately removed by us at any time if, at our discretion, we identify them as such.
III. All submissions must be made with all required information for posting provided and must accurately describe the nature of the experience prompting the submission; any attempt to circumvent this requirement may result in immediate submission rejection and/or account suspension/termination and refusal of future access to our Site.
IV. All submissions, posts and communications must be made in keeping with the mission and purpose of ReportScam.com. We expect you to make all reasonable attempts to resolve any given situation and accordingly, submissions, posts or communications which appear to have no potential for resolution or are made in such a fashion as to suggest that resolution is not desired or will be made impossible may be immediately removed by us at any time and any associated matter or profile or profile element such as the Star Rating or “Resolved” / “Unresolved” status may also be removed, amended, reset, restored or locked (solely at our discretion).
