Please read the full Terms and Conditions, below, to appreciate the richness and subtlety of the legal minds who draft statements such as these.

  1. We do not provide any of the goods or services represented on Our Website.

STONE SOUP NETWORK does not provide, own or control any of the services and products that you can access through Our Website. The Products and Services are owned, controlled or made available by third parties (the “Contributors”). The Contributors are responsible for the Products or Services. The Contributor’s terms and privacy policies apply to your use of their Products or Services, so you must agree to and understand those terms. Your interaction with any Contributor accessed through Our Website is at your own risk and STONE SOUP NETWORK does not have any responsibility should anything go wrong with your use of their Products or Services.

The display on Our Website of a Product, Service or Contributor does not in any way imply, suggest, or constitute a recommendation by STONE SOUP NETWORK of that Product, Service or Contributor, or any sponsorship or approval of STONE SOUP NETWORK by such Contributor, or any affiliation between such Contributor and STONE SOUP NETWORK.

  1. Arranging for Products or Services through STONE SOUP NETWORK

If you make arrangements through Our Website to use a Product or Service, you’re making that arrangement with the Contributor and Our Website acts only as a user interface. Accordingly STONE SOUP NETWORK has no responsibility for the Product or Services because STONE SOUP NETWORK has no involvement in creating or providing the Products or Services.
