Links and Search Results

The Site may automatically produce search results that reference or link to third-party sites throughout the World Wide Web. The Guam Guide has no control over these sites or the content within them. The Guam Guide cannot guarantee, represent, or warrant that the content contained in these sites is accurate, legal, and/or inoffensive. The Guam Guide does not endorse the content of any third-party site, nor do we warrant that it will not contain viruses or otherwise impact your computer. By using the Site to search for or link to another site, you agree and understand that you may not make any claim against The Guam Guide for any damages or losses, whatsoever, resulting from your use of the Site to obtain search results or to link to another site. If you have a problem with a link from the Site, please notify us at legal@theguamguide.com, and The Guam Guide will investigate your claim and take any actions The Guam Guide deems appropriate at our sole discretion.

Business listings located on the Site are selected for display in search results based primarily on their content in relation to the user-provided search terms. Consequently, both customer and non-customer listings will be included in a search results list, and we will not discriminate based on whether a business is a customer with regard to placement or inclusion in the business listings. The Guam Guide customers do not pay to be included in certain search result listings or to retain a specific ranking. However, due to the fact that The Guam Guide customers typically provide more content relative to their non-customer counterparts (e.g., in the form of offers, business biographies, etc.), it is possible that The Guam Guide customers will be displayed at a higher ranking in a search results page.

The Guam Guide customer listings may be rotated within the search results due to a number of factors, none of which are determined by paid inclusion or paid placement. Thus, such variable placement of The Guam Guide customers is not intended to displace non-customer search results placement or inclusion. Indeed, non-customers with a good deal of quality content could appear higher on search result returns than The Guam Guide customers.

RSS Feeds

The Guam Guide provides Really Simple Syndication (“RSS”) on the Site as a free service to allow users to subscribe to our content. You agree that your use of any RSS feeds (“RSS Feeds”) will be non-commercial and that you will not attempt to re-sell, redistribute, or syndicate any content contained in the RSS Feeds (“The Guam Guide Content”) in any way. The Guam Guide shall have sole discretion over what The Guam Guide Content is made available via the RSS Feeds at any time, and The Guam Guide (and the users who contribute their Content) shall have sole editorial control over the The Guam Guide Content. The Guam Guide retains all right, title and interest in and to the RSS Feeds, the The Guam Guide Content and the Site.

You may not alter any The Guam Guide Content in any manner whatsoever. You may not directly or indirectly change, edit, modify, add to or otherwise create derivate works of the The Guam Guide Content. The title of each The Guam Guide Content shall be hyperlinked with the provided URL without redirects and the link shall not contain “no-follow tags” and is not within java script.
