In the spirit of transparency, we have decided to try and spare you the legalese and have written these terms so an average user can more easily understand it. The reviewscout.org website (the “Site”) is comprised of various web pages operated by Review Scout. By visiting this Site, you are accepting all the terms of the Site without any changes you may wish to make to the terms.
Review Scout is a collective of researchers focused on providing ratings and reviews on diverse product categories.
Submitting a product review or emailing us through either our contact or advertising forms is considered electronic communications. If you contact us through those means, you agree that all any disclosures, notices, and other communications that we send to you through electronic means satisfy any legal requirement that requires us to communicate in writing.
Children Under Thirteen
You are ok to use this site if you are under the age of 13, but only if you get permission from a parent or guardian first. We are parents, and as overprotective parents, we want you to know that we are not knowingly collecting, either online or offline, personal information from visitors who are under the age of thirteen. We just think that is not ok. If you are under 18, a parent or guardian must give you permission before using this site.
Links to Third-Party Sites
Our site will often contain links to other websites (“Linked Sites”). We can’t be responsible for the contents of any Linked Site or when they change any information on their site. We will often provide links to websites to make it convenient for you to get more information. However, just because we link to a site does not imply that the third-party is endorsing our site or that we have any association with them. If you click a link to a third-party website, you are acknowledging and consenting that we may share information and data with a third party.
ReviewScout.org and its owners, at times, may benefit from the sale of specific products mentioned on this website through some form of a relationship with the product manufacturer. While this is not always the case, we still need to disclose this to you in the event it does occur.
The product reviews and ratings expressed on this site are solely the opinion and views of the authors, editors, and Review Scouters who share their opinions or rankings based on their personal experience with a product. The information related to user ratings, individual results, and customer satisfaction is based on data submitted through this site and does not necessarily reflect typical results of usage. Just because someone says something worked for them does not guarantee it will work for you.
Any information that you see on our site is for informational purposes only. This includes the content on our pages, the ratings for products, any reviews, any illustrations or graphics, quotes from other sources, claims made by companies, or information we sourced from a product’s website. Please do your diligence and carefully read any information offered by a manufacturer about their product either on the product’s label, packaging, or made available on the manufacturer’s site.

At our own cost, we reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with Review Scout in asserting any available defenses.
If an issue related to any part of these Terms and Conditions arises between a user and Review Scout, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise at law or in equity for damages or any other relief, and we are not able to resolve it amongst ourselves, then it will be resolved only by final and binding arbitration pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitration will be conducted in Los Angeles, California, by a single neutral arbitrator and administered by the American Arbitration Association, or a similar arbitration service that Review Scout selects.
Whatever the arbitrator decides, and awards shall be final, and judgment may be entered upon it in any court having jurisdiction. If any legal issues or arbitration arises out of or concerns these Terms and Conditions, whoever wins the legal matter will be entitled to recover its costs and reasonable attorney’s fees. No matter what the issue that arises related to the Terms and Conditions, Review Scout, and the other party agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims. You, the user, and Review Scout both agree that the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this section of our Terms. All aspects of the dispute, including any parts regarding the enforceability of this arbitration clause, shall be determined by the Arbitrator. In the event the Terms found here terminate, this arbitration provision will continue to survive.
Class Action Waiver
Sorry, but the upcoming Terms are in legal language. We tried to make it simpler, but the folks in the nicely pressed suits told us that we couldn’t get around these upcoming terms.
Any arbitration under these Terms and Conditions will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class/representative/collective actions are not permitted. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT A PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN EACH’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PUTATIVE CLASS, COLLECTIVE AND/ OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, SUCH AS IN THE FORM OF A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION AGAINST THE OTHER. Further, unless both you and Review Scout agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
