Connectbrazil – Terms of Use

These Terms of Service govern your use of this site, as a Visitor and/or an Advertiser, and are presented in three secotions:

1. Advertising Terms and Conditions

2. Visitor Terms and Conditions (scroll down to view)

3. Contests

 

 

1.  Advertising Terms and Conditions

Connectbrazil and its family of websites and mobile platforms offer a variety of advertising products and services to businesses in good standing, including:

These products and services, plus others not included here, are referred to as ‘Advertisements’, below. We refer to the Customer as “you” or “your”, or “client” or “Advertiser”, below.

 

Scheduling & Activation

Scheduling of Advertisements begins once payment is received. Activation refers to the delivery, display, publication or ‘play’ of the Advertisement, depending on the nature of its implementation.

Scheduling & Activation may also be dependent on lead time for production, authorization and delivery of materials.  Connectbrazil will strive to meet client deadlines but shall not be liable for delays beyond its control. Connectbrazil will run the Advertisement(s) beginning on the Start Date and ending on either the End Date or the ‘run of course’ for cost per click orders or impression counts, as determined by the Order.

Connectbrazil employs good faith efforts to deliver the desired number of click-throughs or impressions when a time period is stated but will not be liable for failing to do so. In all cases, the total number of desired click-throughs will supersede the target duration.

 

Placing An Order

These Terms and Conditions will govern all orders placed by you for Connectbrazil Advertisements.

Acceptance of these terms and conditions for your initial Order and all future Orders begins when you create your account in the Sponsor Area at Connectbrazil. This Agreement remains in place as long as your account is active with Connectbrazil.

Your order will include details on the implementation of the products and services to be scheduled.

Be aware that changes to the Order’s details of implementation must be made in writing to: concierge@connectbrazil.com and such changes may affect scheduling. No other changes of any kind will be binding on Connectbrazil.

It is your responsibility to provide Connectbrazil with required materials in a timely manner. The client’s failure to provide these materials, actions and resources in a timely manner may result in additional costs and may also affect the performance of the campaign. Any resulting delays or circumstances which arise from your responsibility to perform will not alter or nullify the payment terms of this agreement.

All orders are subject to availability and pricing.

As the Advertiser, you agree to use Connectbrazil and its services and products in accordance with applicable law and in a manner which does not interfere with the normal operation of Connectbrazil and its partners, as determined by Connectbrazil in its sole discretion.

For example, we may remove a review if we believe it violates our Content Guidelines. We have no obligation to retain or provide you with copies of your content, nor do we guarantee any confidentiality with respect to your content.

 

Review Guidelines

The best reviews are passionate and personal. They offer a rich narrative, a wealth of detail, and a helpful tip or two for other consumers. Here are some additional thoughts for writing a great review at Connectbrazil.com.

Personal experience: We want to hear about your firsthand consumer experience, not what you heard from your co-worker or partner. Tell your own story without resorting to broad generalizations and allegations based on assumption.

Accuracy: Be sure your review is factually correct. Feel free to air your opinions, but don't exaggerate or misrepresent your experience.

Originality: NEVER copy a review from another Visitor or from another website and publish it at Connectbrazil. NEVR plagiarize someone else’s story. Both of these actions are illegal and when discovered on our site, Connectbrazil will terminate the Visitor Account and work with authorities to resolve the matter. We take these issues seriously, so you should, too.

Review updates: Review updates should reflect a new experience or interaction with the business. Don't tell the same old story you've already told. If you'd like to add new insight to an old experience, just edit your previous review instead of creating a new update.

 

User Profile Guidelines

Don't be shy! Use your account profile to let people know who you are and what you love about Brazil. Visitors want to read reviews from people they know and trust (not those with profiles that are empty or filled with inappropriate content).

 

Event Guidelines

Do you know about a great event? Great! Post it to the Events tab at the top of any page at Connectbrazil. Please don't use Events to post your recurring promotional announcements and sales – we offer Classifieds for that. We also like to keep the content fresh, so please don't post events more than 6 months in advance.

 

Restrictions

Connectbrazil loves to share what we discover about Brazilian culture. We hope you do, too. You agree to not:

a. Violate our Content Guidelines, for example, by writing a fake or defamatory review, trading reviews with other businesses, or compensating someone or being compensated to write or remove a review;

For time to time, Connectbrazil may at its discretion, promote third-party contests.

All prizes or prize certificates will be mailed to the winners’ supplied mailing address. The winner will forfeit any prize or prize certificate not claimed within forty-five (45) days of winning. Prizes or prize certificates mailed to the winners will be preceded by the written consent of the winner and therefore, winner assumes the risk of its loss.

If any registered entrant should choose to ‘opt out’ from these communications, the entrant’s eligibility to win may be forfeited.

Contests are subject to all applicable US federal, state and local laws and regulations and are void where prohibited. International law may further regulate the terms and conditions of any part of an award or prize, and any such regulations shall be considered beyond the scope of responsibility of Connectbrazil.

Odds of winning depend upon the number of entries received and/or the number of prize awarded.

Winners will be notified by the Contests Department via email.
