Community Terms of Service

[ Edited ]

Welcome to the Samsung Community!

 

PLEASE READ THESE Special terms OF SERVICE FOR SAMSUNG Community (“SAMSUNG Community ToS”) CAREFULLY BEFORE USING SAMSUNG Community. The Samsung Community is an online forum for users of Samsung products and services  (“You”, “Your” or “Users”) operated by or on behalf of SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS (UK) LIMITED, a company registered in England and Wales under number 03086621 whose registered office is at Samsung House, 1000 Hillswood Drive, Chertsey, Surrey, KT16 0PS (“Samsung”, “we” or “us”).

 

The Samsung Community ToS supplements the Samsung Service Terms and Conditions that you have already agreed to (or concurrently agree to along with this Samsung Community ToS) (collectively the “Terms”). It is important that you take the time to read these Terms. These Terms and any of the documents referred to in the Terms form the legally binding agreement between us relating to the Services and your use of the Samsung Community.

 

If you don’t want to be bound by these Terms, you should not use the Samsung Community. We may update these Terms from time to time, so please check back regularly.

 

  1. General
  • We reserve the right to manage the posts on the Samsung Community to provide an orderly presentation of this information. To effectively manage the Samsung Community, we may designate employees or others to act as moderators, community managers and administrators for the Samsung Community. These moderators, community managers and administrators are the only representatives of Samsung that are authorised to manage the Samsung Community. Any employees who are not designated as moderators, community managers, administrators or employees are not authorised to represent themselves on the site as Samsung employees. Authorised employees are distinguished by the use of "Employee" and/or Samsung logo. We are not responsible for content provided by employees who are not designated as moderator, community manager, administrator or ‘Employee’ for these purposes.
  • Posts on the Samsung Community are written by users and we are not responsible for and do not endorse such material. We reserve the right to monitor the contributions made and may respond to or comment upon communications made by you and edit or remove any content from the Samsung Community in our absolute discretion. No failure to remove particular material shall constitute its endorsement or acceptance by us.
  • We will not be held responsible for the content, accuracy, timing or reliability of any information provided within the Samsung Community, or for statements, advice and/or opinions made or given by other Samsung Community users in the Samsung Community (except as required by law).

  • take precautions when meeting other Samsung Community users in the real world; and
