Terms of Service
Note: Whenever I say, “I”, “Carpet Captain”, or “the site,” I’m referring to anything related to the carpetcaptain.com website or its authors.
Carpet Captain is a FREE resource provided to you, mostly by a single person. It’s not my full time job, but I do my best to keep it up to date and helpful for carpet shoppers. In fact, I take pride in that.
With that said, I’ve been told it’s in my best interest to give Carpet Captain’s readers some “legal notices.” In particular, I need to make sure you are aware that I am not a professional of any kind as it relates to this site. I’m not a carpet installer. I’m not an accountant. I’m not an attorney, etc. In other words, anything you read on here is only a starting point. You should verify any information found on this site with professional advice.
Below I’ll go into more details on how the site works, disclaimers, disclosures, etc. This was prepared without a lawyer, but more with the mindset, what do my readers deserve to know?
Using our service
By using our Service (any pages, tool, content, etc on this website), you agree to all terms on this page. In addition, you understand that all Services are owned by Carpet Captain, and that you must have permission before reproducing any Service on this site.
This site earns money
I started Carpet Captain to help carpet shoppers.
This hasn’t changed, and it won’t change.
By helping thousands of carpet shoppers, there are natural opportunities for the site to generate revenue. Much of this revenue goes into the upkeep of the site, and some of it goes to me (which keeps me motivated spending hours improving and keeping the site up to date).
These revenue sources have and will change over time. But here are a few key points I think you should know:
- If there is a product or service I recommend, I may be making a commission from it.
- While I take pride in my recommendations, I don’t control the quality of any products or services you purchase through Carpet Captain or its affiliates.
- Some advertisements on the site may be through a 3rd party (currently Google). I don’t control what Google (or any other advertiser) shows you. They just pay me to put their advertising platforms on my site, and I trust that they show quality advertisements.
- Our free carpet quotes brought to your home is through a company called Networx (you can click this link to learn more about them or contact Networx personally). They connect shoppers with contractors. Beating a dead horse here, but I have no control over the quality of these services or the people who come to your home. I have not personally evaluated this service. It just seems like a convenient resource for my readers.
In other words, it is up to you to verify the quality of any product or service recommended before purchasing. You agree to not hold me responsible for any poor outcomes of any variety that occur by purchasing a product or service recommended by me.
Also related, here is a specific note regarding links to Amazon products on our site:
“Carpetcaptain.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com”
Of course, if you ever have questions about a recommendations, contact me. I’ll be glad to help you or tell you if I can’t.
Advice on site is intended to be helpful but outcomes can’t be guaranteed
I often give recommendations I think will help you. Like any advice, it could backfire. In addition, there may be other authors on the site or comments that I do not control. You must agree to hold me harmless for any ramifications whether they are financial, physical or otherwise.
I can’t control all information on this site
I’ve already touched on this, but I can’t continually monitor all information on this site. I try to keep it up to date and accurate, but there are surely errors. In some cases, errors may occur due to lack of update or just misunderstanding on my part. In other cases, I may allow comments on the site, and I cannot control what others write. I may allow guest authors to contribute to the site content.
In summary, I take pride in Carpet Captain, but I cannot guarantee its accuracy.
