We rely on Users and Advertisers to present us with factual details and content and we assume no responsibility at all for the accuracy of information, adverts or any other details placed on Silversurfers.
All content on Silversurfers.com is provided for general information only, and should not be treated at all as a substitute for the medical advice of your own doctor or any other health care professional. Silversurfers.com will not be responsible or liable for any diagnosis made by a user based on the content on www.silversurfers.com and we are also not liable for the content of any external websites or links from or to Silversurfers to any other websites.

1 Silversurfers’ Role
1.1 This Site is used as an information Site for Users to write and place articles on and for Users to also write comments on forums and blogs and act in conversations with others. We assume no responsibility for the accuracy of details in these posted comments and forums and we accept no liability for any information posted in them. You agree that when using our Site you will comply with the provisions of our Acceptable Use Policy

We do not have or intend to have any contractual involvement in any selling or buying of any of the products or services (Products) shown on this Site. Any contract you enter into will be with the supplier of the Products or services, not us, and will be subject to that supplier’s terms and conditions.
