Responsibility of Contributors. 

If you write for KKSBlog, comment, post material to KKSBlog.com, post links on KKSBlog.com, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available (any such material, “Content”), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content or your conduct.

Content removal.

If you delete Content, KKSBlog will use reasonable efforts to remove it from KKSBlog.com, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable.

Ecommerce.

KKSBlog offers a store were goods and content are sold. The store is powered by WooCommerce so if you use the store, these additional terms apply. We do not take responsibility for any technical errors or malfunctioning software that are related to Woocommerce’s software. We are relying on the third party support of WooCommerce (via WordPress.com) to resolve any technical issues.

Payments done through PayPal and other payment methods are handled by third party payment providers like PayPal. KKSBlog does not take any responsibility for payments handled through third party providers. You agree that only the necessary personal details are shared with those providers to correctly process orders. (Read our privacy policy for more details). KKSBlog will try to resolve any issues with third party payment providers for orders made in our shop.

KKSBlog is not liable for any shipments, the shipment duration or transport damages done by third party shippers. KKSBlog uses a variety of shipping companies with each their own terms of use. KKSBlog will try to resolve any issues with shipments and parcel tracking for orders made in our shop.

Warranty and refund policy

There are a few important things to keep in mind when returning a product you purchased online:

You have 14 calendar days to return an item from the date you received it.
Only items that have been purchased directly from KKSBlog can be returned to KKSBlog. Please ensure that the item you’re returning is repackaged with all the cords, adapters and documentation that were included when you received it. There are some items, however, that are ineligible for return, including:

  • Opened software*
  • Electronic Software Downloads
  • KKSBlog Store Gift Cards and vouchers* You can return software, provided that it has not been installed on any computer. Software that contains a printed software license may not be returned if the seal or sticker on the software media packaging is broken.

2. Responsibility of Visitors

You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. Our Services may contain content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, and other errors. Our Services may also contain material that violates the privacy or publicity rights, or infringes the intellectual property and other proprietary rights, of third parties, or the downloading, copying or use of which is subject to additional terms and conditions, stated or unstated. KKSBlog disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from the use by our writers of our Services, or from any downloading by those writers of content there posted.

2.1 Commenting

  • Treat our contributors and other visitors with the respect they deserve. This should go without saying but treat others like you would like to be treated !
  • Please do not spam. The definition of spam is an irrelevant or advertising post. Any comment considered spam will be removed immediately.
  • Please do not post comments text in all CAPITALS since this is considered to be shouting and is not necessary.
  • Insulting and flaming or personal attacks against KKSBlog staff will be not tolerated.
  • Please be considerate in language you use while commenting. Swearing is banned.
  • No hacking and illegal activity, such as torrents and illegal downloads, this will not be tolerated, and if appropriate, may be reported to local authority.
  • Please do not post inappropriate material. I think everyone understands what this means. The policy goes that if you would not feel comfortable viewing it at work, or in front of children or parents, then don’t post it!
  • Please do not post personal attacks to other persons or commentators and keep your private dealings/issues to yourself. This is not a place to vent your personal problems.

2.2 What happens if I break a rule ?

1st rule break (Minor offence)

Comments will be removed. We may inform you about it. No further action taken. For a more serious offence, a warning will be issued, this is a mark against your name letting us know you have broken a rule.

2nd rule break.

You will receive a temporary ban, the length of which will depend on the severity of the incident.

3rd rule break

After this it will be assumed you will not learn your lesson, so you will receive a permanent ban, meaning you will never be able to comment again. The team can also decide to ban you completely from visiting this website!
