3. Privacy Policy

This website does not collect any information about the user. Each user accessing this website can be guaranteed that no information is passed to the webmaster unless he/she sends an e-mail to the webmaster with such information. In such cases, the webmaster never discards this information without your permission.

In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, this site may link to sites operated by third parties. However, even if the third party is affiliated with this website, Bearhugger.net has no control over these linked sites, all of which have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of Bearhugger.net. These linked sites are only for your convenience and therefore you access them at your own risk. Nonetheless, Bearhugger.net seeks to protect the integrity of its web site and the links placed upon it and therefore requests any feedback on not only its own site, but for sites it links to as well (including if a specific link does not work). In addition, these third-party sites may collect information from users, but for the purpose of statistical site analysis and traffic report. The Bearhugger.net assume no responsibilities concerning the collection and usage of information performed by those third-party sites and services.

The Bearhugger.net (Bearhugger.net) is not responsible for whatever information is collected or stored on your computer by the servers and its service provider.


4. User referral

If the owner, employees, affiliates, contributors, representatives of Bearhugger.net give out pointers about the source of a tape/picture OR if they refer to information provided on this site to purchase a product (such as tapes, photosets, etc.), then all Bearhugger.net individuals and its affiliates will not be held responsible for misleading users in purchasing the wrong product. It is the user's responsibility to double-check with a company before buying a particular product. It is not the webmaster's responsibility to direct the user to a specific product. The webmaster may help an user by showing in which website the product is located in but it is not the webmaster's responsibility to provide additional information such as product identification/name, wrestlers name, etc.

In the case of bearhug referred in movies, Bearhugger.net is not responsible for any purchases you make. It is strongly recommended that you rent the movie from your local videostore, because most of the time, even though the bearhug seems appealing, the movie is dissapointing. Bearhugger.net is NOT responsible for the loss in time and money because of information received from this site.

For video and movie referrals for mature audience, Bearhugger.net assume no responsibility towards these third party purchases/rentals. The user agrees to free Bearhugger.net from all liabilities, damages or complaints these third-party videos may inflict. It is the buyer's responsibility to get himself informed when he/she purchases a video from another site and Bearhugger.net is in no way responsible for the buyer's level of satisfaction. Complaints should be forwarded to the third-party site where the product was bought.

The links to third-party seller and online merchants/stores are what the site believes to be the closest match for the movies mentionned in the respective movie and video sections of the site. It is the user's responsibility to double-check the product before it is purchased. In no way will the user hold Bearhugger.net or its affiliates partners, third-party merchants or stores responsible for misleading the user in buying the wrong product, nor will the user hold Bearhugger.net responsible for any other actions/events.


5. Proof of ownership/individual media's rights

The pictures are believed to be displayed with permission. If an user believes that such permission is not given, the user can e-mail the webmaster with a proof of ownership and the related images will be removed after authenticating the source of the e-mail. For such requests, the user MUST e-mail from its official domain name. It is to be noted that e-mail requests from web-based e-mail (yahoo, hotmail, etc.) are NOT considered serious.

Unless the targeted picture is a content generated for this site such as some of the animated pictures and logos, users cannot generally ask the webmaster the permission to copy or modify a picture. In most cases, pictures have an URL address embedded to the picture. The user needs to contact the site/company of that picture to obtain copyright information. If the picture does not contain any URL, the user needs to make research on his own about the source of the picture. Bearhugger.net is in no position to give permissions to copy/modify the pictures on this site or to perform a specific research request for its users.


6. Company issues

For all commercial companies, no disrepect is meant and no copyright infringment is intended by posting images. On the contrary, Bearhugger.net believe the posting of images from a company to this website is beneficial for the company as it attracts users purchase the related product directly at the company's website.

One of the main purpose of posting bearhug pictures (and wrestling pictures) on this site is to provide to users worldwide, who shares the same interest, the opportunity to view bearhug pictures all in one site instead of surfing multiple sites or by making long, tedious and irrelevant web search.
