Misleading information about your location is not allowed on ATvantage LLC. At the beginning of your application, and from time to time thereafter, your Account may be subject to verification as well as editorial and feedback reviews. ATvantage LLC can suspend or terminate your application upon the discovery that any information you provided or posted is not true, accurate or complete, or as a result of other violations of the ATvantage LLC Terms of Service.

INFORMATION AND FEEDBACK/COMMENTS

ATvantage LLC welcomes objective balanced feedback about the Users with whom you have transacted. You acknowledge and agree that ATvantage LLC will obtain feedback/comments from Users with whom you have transacted.

You acknowledge that feedback/comments results for you may consist of information left by other Users and that ATvantage LLC may calculate a composite feedback number based on this feedback. ATs agree to be rated by Clients along several criteria, as determined by ATvantage LLC. ATvantage LLC provides feedback/comment opportunity as a means through which Users can express their opinions openly, and ATvantage LLC does not monitor or censor these opinions or investigate any remarks posted by Users for accuracy or reliability unless a User brings the posting to ATvantage LLC’s attention. You may be held legally responsible for damages suffered by other ATvantage LLC Users or third parties as a result of your remarks if a court finds that your remarks are legally actionable or defamatory. Under federal law, ATvantage LLC is not legally responsible for any feedback or comments posted or made available on this Site by any Users or third parties, even if that information is defamatory or otherwise legally actionable.

You agree to report violations or abuses of feedback/comments immediately by contacting Customer Support, and agree not to take any actions that undermine the integrity of the feedback/comment system, including but not limited to the following:

 Leaving feedback for yourself, using a secondary username or another Member’s username.

 Leaving fake or inaccurate feedback for another User or Member.

 Soliciting other ATvantage LLC Members to leave fake or inaccurate feedback.

 Threatening to leave negative feedback to induce another User or Member to perform a task not required by the Member Contract.

 Feedback solicitation such as offering to sell or buy services in exchange for good feedback, trading feedback undeservedly or buying feedback.

In order to protect the integrity of the feedback/comment system and protect Users from abuse, ATvantage LLC will investigate and has the right (but is under no obligation) to remove posted information under the following scenarios:

 It seeks to elicit or solicit any User’s contact information, such as other Users’ email addresses, for any non-ATvantage LLC related commercial or business purposes, or to transmit any unsolicited advertising, “junk mail,” “spam,” or “chain letters.”

 It contains language that is profane, vulgar, or racist or contains adult material. Insulting or inflammatory feedback is strongly discouraged but will not be removed.

 It is shown to have been left by any User who is in violation of ATvantage LLC’s Eligibility requirements, or by or for a User who has conducted any fraudulent transaction.

 It is not directly related to transactions conducted through ATvantage LLC.

 It makes any reference to actions taken or purported to be taken by ATvantage LLC or any law enforcement organization.

 ATvantage LLC is provided with a ruling or settlement agreement from a valid and certified dispute resolution service, or is provided with a court order finding that the feedback or information posted is slanderous, libelous, defamatory or otherwise illegal.

 The User who posted the feedback or information provided ATvantage LLC with false contact information during the transaction period (as verified by ATvantage LLC) and cannot be contacted by ATvantage LLC.

 The User who posted the feedback or information is participating in an ATvantage LLC transaction with the intent of leaving feedback as part of a campaign to harass ATvantage LLC member(s) (as verified by ATvantage LLC).
