This protected content is owned by BusinessTown LLC, its service providers, and its advertisers.

You are not allowed to copy, frame, reproduce, republish, upload, modify, distribute, transmit, display, create works derived from, or sell or use for any commercial purposes any content from BusinessTown.com and related services, without the express and prior written consent of an officer of BusinessTown LLC, except as allowed later in these Terms of Service. Any rights not specifically granted are reserved for BusinessTown LLC.

It is the policy of BusinessTown.com to aggressively protect and defend its rights to all of its Content in all formats in all languages in all parts of the World to the full extent of the law.

You are allowed to use the content for your personal use, but not for any commercial purpose. You are allowed to download one copy on a single computer and print a single copy of limited content for your personal (non-commercial) use provided that you do not modify the content in any way and provided that you do not remove any logo, trademark, or copyright notice or attribution.

You are not allowed to use the content in any way that suggests that BusinessTown.com endorses your business, service, idea or you personally. You are not allowed to use the content in anyway that is illegal or harmful, including financially harmful, to another person, business, or nonprofit entity.

BusinessTown.com specifically prohibits the framing of its content.

Not Providing Advice for Your Particular Situation

The purpose of the content of BusinessTown.com is to motivate, inspire, and entertain you and not to give you specific advice on your particular business situation.

An important theme of BusinessTown.com is that the specific results of any action or step in business are hard to predict: just because it worked before, or because it is working now for another business, or because it is mentioned on BusinessTown.com, does not mean that the action or step is going to work in your situation.

Not a Substitute for Professional Counsel

The content on BusinessTown.com and related services is not intended to substitute for professional advice. Be advised that every business situation is different in numerous ways. Furthermore, business strategies or techniques that worked in one situation may very well not work in what appears to be a similar situation for another business: there are always too many variables to directly equate one business situation with another.

No information on BusinessTown.com should be considered a substitute for legal advice, medical advice, or advice of a qualified business advisor or other professional. Remember that if in doubt, do not be “penny wise but pound foolish,” do not hesitate to hire the best expert professional that you can.
