Legal Disclaimer/Terms & Conditions of Service

The following are the terms and conditions of use of the AdoptionVoice.com website and our services.  If you do not accept these conditions, you must not use this website or the services.

This website contains general information only.  Although we aim to keep it up-to-date, we do not guarantee its accuracy. Similarly, while we try to make this site as useful and practical as possible, the material it contains is not legal advice nor a substitute for it, and must not be relied on as such.  We say this for your benefit as well as ours, in that:

  • there may be particular circumstances to your position which would make our more general commentary inapplicable or which would make our forms, details and tipsheets unsuitable;
  • some of the particular material used on this site may, from time to time, become out of date - please note that where material is dated, we have aimed to state the law as at that date, but cannot guarantee that things have not moved on since; and
  • we may have changed material, but your web browser or internet service provider may be using a "cached" page - ensuring that you "refresh" regularly on your browser will help.

The information provided at AdoptionVoice.com is intended to serve as an educational supplement to your knowledge base and is in no way to be considered medical or legal advice. The content of this site is completely subjective and not meant to replace the role of your qualified physician, adoption professional, or other qualified professional.  If you have a specific legal problem, you must consult a suitably qualified lawyer.

We reserve the right to make this site unavailable at any time or to restrict access to parts or all of the site without notice.

Bearing in mind that this is a free "public access" site, it is a condition of use of the site and the materials in it that use is at the user's own risk.  We give no representation or warranty as to the accuracy of the content of the site and assume no responsibility for errors or omissions in it or the effect it has upon your computer.   We disclaim all liability in respect of such information and its provision.   Neither any AdoptionVoice.com staff or contractors nor any of the site's editors or contributors shall be liable for any loss or damages suffered as a result of any use of the site, including but not limited to direct loss, consequential loss and loss of profits (but not including death or personal injury caused by our negligence).

Unless specified to the contrary, the contents of this website and these pages are protected by copyright.  The authors of the material on the website and the creators of the website assert their moral rights.  No part of them may be reproduced in any form or used in any other way except in accordance with the terms set out below.  You may download or print off the visible text on this site for personal non-commercial purposes but you may not reproduce any other part of the website including, but not limited to, the structure, overall style and program code.

Please bear in mind that any of our documents are not a good substitute for legal advice and you use them at your own risk (see disclaimer section above).  You should always get your legal documents checked by a suitably qualified lawyer - this is usually money well spent compared to the possible liabilities that can arise from poorly drafted legal documentation.  (You may also find you can help keep your legal costs down by using the materials on this site to create a first draft yourself to which a specialist lawyer can then add finishing touches.)  This material is:

  • information of a general nature only which is not intended to address the specific circumstances of any particular individual or entity;
  • not necessarily comprehensive, complete, accurate or up to date;
  • not professional or legal advice (if you need specific advice, you should always consult a suitably qualified local professional for your region of the state).

All prospective adoptive parents represent to AdoptionVoice.com and Bold Factory that they have satisfied all pre-adoption certification requirements in their state and that they are not violating any laws in seeking services from AdoptionVoice.com and/or Bold Factory. It is your responsibility to consult with your local adoption attorney before engaging in any advertising or networking services.

AdoptionVoice.com and/or Bold Factory are not adoption agencies, nor licensed adoption professionals. We provide educational and marketing services only.  We do not participate in matching a specific child to specific parents for adoption. You will need other professionals, such as adoption professionals and attorneys, to complete the adoption process.

You agree that any counsel given by e-mail, telephone, or through the website is non-authoritative, and that you will not rely upon this information, and that you will consult with a qualified professional before making any decisions. You agree that AdoptionVoice.com and/or Bold Factory assume no liability from answering these questions.

Achievements realized from the services delivered depend upon many internal and external factors that are beyond the control of AdoptionVoice.com and/or Bold Factory and its subcontractors and agents.  It is understood and agreed that no express or implied warranty of any general or specific results shall apply to the services performed and the material delivered under this agreement.

AdoptionVoice.com includes links to other sites on the Internet.  We cannot vouch for the suitability or accuracy of the content of those sites.  They are simply sites that we have seen (perhaps only once and perhaps not recently) which we found interesting.  They have nothing to do with us and you use them at your own risk.

AdoptionVoice.com and/or Bold Factory will not be liable for any damages of any kind arising from the use of this site or any link from this site, included but not limited to direct, indirect, incidental punitive, and consequential damages.

We may change these conditions of use from time to time.  You will be bound by changes even if you do not re-visit this page to re-read this notice.

These conditions of use are governed by US law and any dispute connected with this site is subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the US courts.

Questions, concerns, comments and complaints can be addressed to info@privateadoptionhelp.com. For complaints about personal information collected by this website, you can contact info@privateadoptionhelp.com.


I have read, understand, and agree to the above.
