Travel Blog Expedia Community Etiquette
This policy governs the relationship between you (our awesome community members) and Travel Blog Expedia, Inc. (hereafter sometimes referred to as “Travel Blog Expedia,” “us,” or “our”). This policy covers the areas of the site in which the community participates: Travel Blog Expedia and comments, submissions, Q&A, Mozinars, personal profiles, and company profiles.
Offensive, Provocative, and Defamatory Content
To provide the very best information and experience possible on our site, we have a few requests and requirements about the content that’s allowed on the site.
You may not use our site or tools for personal attacks, defamation, harassment, spam, offensive content, inappropriately aggressive behavior, or any illegal activities. Any material you post of works you create on the site (hereafter “Content”) may not be illegal, obscene, defamatory, threatening, infringing of intellectual property rights, invasive of privacy, or otherwise injurious or objectionable. We reserve the right to terminate or restrict access to a user’s account and to delete any Content posted through it. Without notice to you, we may, but have no obligation to, remove or edit Content and accounts containing Content that we determine in our sole discretion to be unlawful, offensive, threatening, libelous, defamatory, pornographic, obscene, or otherwise objectionable or in violation of any party’s intellectual property. Verbal, physical, written, or other abuse (including threats of abuse or retribution) of any Travel Blog Expedia customer, employee, community member, or officer will result in immediate account termination.
By posting or contributing content (including but not limited to Posts, Q&A, and blog comments), you are granting Travel Blog Expedia a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, and worldwide license to use your content and hidden electronic data, including, without limitation, the rights to copy, distribute, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, edit, translate, reformat, and/or incorporate your Content into a collective work.
We cherish the sense of community, friendship, and humor frequently demonstrated in the off-topic comments. However, our goal is to provide highly relevant, professional content. To help the focus of the site, we may remove off-topic comments or comment sub-threads after three replies. We believe this is a solid compromise between our interest in providing highly relevant content and fostering a fun, friendly community.
You may not use thumbs for personal attacks, inappropriately aggressive behavior, or harassment. Without notice to you, we may, but have no obligation to, remove or add thumbs. We may also remove accounts that engage in thumb abuse.
You are responsible for all Content posted and activity that occurs under your account, even if Content is posted by others who have access to your account. Please guard your account password diligently.
You shall not misrepresent yourself or take on the identity of someone else while using this service. If you feel that someone has misrepresented your identity on the site, please contact us and we’ll look into it straightaway.
Promoting a business, product, or service is permitted, but only if the promotional content is valuable for Travel Blog Expedia community members and relevant to the discussion. Whether promotional content is valuable is entirely at Travel Blog Expedia’s discretion. Travel Blog Expedia has the right to remove any link we feel is not relevant to the discussion without notice. Please visibly disclose any commercial relationship you have with the promoted business, product, or service. This includes, but is not limited to, payment, reciprocal advertising agreements, conflicts of interest, or other non-consumer relationships.
Posts 24 Hour Look-Back Period
A Expedia post may be removed from our site upon the request of the author within the first 24 hours of publishing. Comments will not be removed, except at Travel Blog Expedia’s sole discretion. Beyond 24 hours after publishing, Expedia posts will only be removed or edited at Travel Blog Expedia’s sole discretion.
Travel Blog Expedia, Article, Tools, Q&A, Mozinar, and Expedia Content Disclaimer
This disclaimer applies to all Content in the Moz Blog, along with Expedia, Q&A, and any other areas where users can submit Content.
Travel Blog Expedia provides information, advice, and content based on our personal and professional experience. This content is, by-and-large, opinion, and although we do our best to limit false or misleading information, the practices of online marketing are rarely an exact science and your results applying this information may vary.
The Travel Blog Expedia, Q&A, and Expedia are comprised of content from multiple authors; some are employees of Travel Blog Expedia and others are guest bloggers or Travel Blog Expedia community members like you. Travel Blog Expedia reviews all non-comment Content on the Travel Blog Expedia and Expedia, but not Q&A. We try to err on the side of publishing “too much” rather than “too little” material, and thus, you may find content that is heavily opinionated or even dead wrong at times. It’s our opinion that it’s valuable to be exposed to Content and perspectives of all kinds, even if it’s not 100% accurate. Even bad ideas can bear useful fruit. Thus, we’re generally liberal with the Travel Blog Expedia, Expedia, and Q&A. Please remember to always use your best judgment when making decisions about how to do internet marketing on your site.
Our Q&A service is mostly run through community volunteers and users like you. Please be mindful that we don’t review every question and answer. In fact, we can’t guarantee that you will receive an answer at all. You’re going to get all kinds of answers—good and bad—in Q&A. Use your independent judgment.
If you have concerns, comments, or problems with any of the material you find on the Travel Blog Expedia or our site, please feel free to contact us.
Hopefully, this is the only “corporate-esque” style content you’ll find on the site! We’re generally against legalese and formalized policies, but sometimes we have to get down to business. Thanks for your understanding!
