2. Disclaimer

The administrator, authors, editors, and their staff and agents decline any and all responsibility for the topicality, correctness, completeness, or quality of the information provided. Liability claims regarding damages caused by the use of any information provided, including any kind of information which is incomplete, incorrect, or perceived as not matching or damaging to brand identity of any product or brand mentioned in the RockmusicRaider blog, will, therefore, be rejected.

Content offered by 3rd parties may be extended, changed, or only partly published or, again, completely deleted by the author without further separate communication with the 3rd party in question.

3. Promo and review material

The administrator, authors, editors and their staff and agents at RockmusicRaider, thereafter called “RockmusicRaider”, “we”, “us” or similar for sake of ease, take establishing reviews very seriously and we respect the right of the music industry to publish their music at the time of their choosing.

Promo material offered by any party, notably Record Labels, Promoters and/or their agents for review, or the bands themselves will not be shared further to prevent leaking. The promo material shared with RockmusicRaider shall only be used for the purpose of providing a review until such time that official publication has occurred. Should editors choose to publish photos or media for such promo reviews on the blog, only already previously and officially published or explicitly permitted videos, photos or any other support will be shown.

4. Politics, World Events, and Censorship

RockmusicRaider is – by definition – an apolitical platform and webzine.

All messaging on the blog will thus solely focus on the artistic material made available by the music industry or procured through our own means. And this includes all publications but is not limited to posts, articles, news, and any and all communications on social media.

RockmusicRaider‘s editors, authors, and agents (“staff” thereafter) will thus refrain from political messaging on personalities, organizations, and world events.

The staff will treat the artistic material by its merits, but not driven by political affiliation, race, color, gender, beliefs, etc.

The banhammer

The RockmusicRaider editor-in-chief and his/her staff will however reserve the right to censor inappropriate material. And this applies specifically to material including, but not limited to, inciting undue violence of any kind, racism, hate messaging, and extremism of any kind.

If any of the aforementioned definitions would apply to a full band, then we reserve the right to ban the band outright from our webzine.

The decision to censor material or bands is final. It will not be communicated to the parties involved, nor will there be a mechanism to mediate.

If – however – you feel that material or bands on the blog are unduly offensive, feel free to contact the webzine via dispute[@]rockmusicraider[.]com.

Definition: The term “material” shall include (non-exhaustive) any and all communications, artistic material of any kinds, posts, articles, charts, statistics, etc.

RockmusicRaider is not responsible nor has any control over any contents linked or referred to from the referrers’ pages. If any damage occurs by the use of information presented there, only the author of these respective referral pages will be liable, RockmusicRaider being excluded.

Furthermore, RockmusicRaider is not liable for any postings or messages published by users in the comments section, discussion boards, guest books or mailing lists provided on his page.

RockmusicRaider reserves the right to edit or delete inappropriate content shared or published by users.

Any content produced by RockmusicRaider is fully protected and reserved by the applicable copyright laws. Any duplication or use of objects such as images, diagrams, sounds, or texts in any electronic, media, or printed publication is not permitted without the author’s explicit agreement.

The author or authors at RockmusicRaider will in turn – to the best of his/her ability and knowledge – intend not to use any prohibited copyrighted material for the publication or, if not possible, indicate the copyright of the respective object. This applies to text as well as any other media content visible on the blog. Any accidental publication of copyrighted material without proper labeling by RockmusicRaider can be challenged by email to dispute[@]rockmusicraider[.]com and we will do our best to remove, change or appropriately label the content.
