The materials and information you find on the Green Lodging News Web site are provided “as is,” without warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including without limitation any warranty for information, services, or products provided through or in connection with the Green Lodging News Web site and any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, expectation of privacy or noninfringement. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you.


Green Lodging News is provided to you at no cost, “as is.” All efforts will be used to maintain the site but you should not assume that it is error-free or is suitable for the particular purpose that you intended when gaining access to the site. Green Lodging News is not responsible for the results of any defects that may be found to exist in the site or any lost profits or other consequential damages that may result from such defects.

Green Lodging News may link to and/or use a search engine that refers users to sites and information located worldwide throughout the Internet. Because Green Lodging News has no control over such sites and information, it makes no guaranties as to those sites and information, including: (1) the accuracy, currency, content, or quality of the search results, or (2) whether the search may locate any unintended and objectionable content.

Because some of the content on the Internet consists of material that is adult-oriented or otherwise objectionable to some people, the results of your search may automatically and unintentionally generate links or references to objectionable material. Green Lodging News can make no claim that such results will not occur. Search technology does not give results limited to only the hits that were sought. There may be extraneous hits as well.
