Terms of Service

These Terms of Service ("Terms") govern your use of the Kontribit websites and services (the "Services"), and any information, text, graphics, photos or other materials uploaded, downloaded or appearing on the Services (collectively referred to as "Content"). Your access to and use of the Services is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. By accessing or using the Services you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms or to our Privacy Policy, please do not access the Site or use the Services.

Basic Terms

All Content, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, is the sole responsibility of the person who originated such Content. We may not monitor or control the Content posted via the Services and, thus, we cannot take responsibility for such Content. Any use or reliance on any Content or materials posted via the Services or obtained by you through the Services is at your own risk.

The Content you submit, post, or display will be able to be viewed by other users of the Services and through third party services and websites. You should only provide Content that you are comfortable sharing with others under these Terms.

When using Kontribit, you accept and understand that you will be exposed to content submitted by other users from a variety of sources. You accept and understand that Kontribit is not responsible for the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of or relating to such Content, or endorse any opinions expressed in them. You further understand and acknowledge that you may be exposed to Content that are inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable, or in some cases, Content that have been mislabeled or are otherwise deceptive. Kontribit will under no circumstances be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any Content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available via the Services.

Kontribit will not under any circumstances be liable for any inaccuracy or defect in any Content. However, Kontribit does reserve the right to delete or edit any material in any posting that is obscene, offensive or otherwise objectionable and not in keeping with the standards of the site. If Kontribit elects to edit any Content, it nonetheless assumes no responsibility for the content of user submissions.

We may modify or adapt Content in order to transmit, display or distribute it over computer networks and in various media and/or make changes to Content as are necessary to conform and adapt that Content to any requirements or limitations of any networks, devices, services or media.

The Services may include advertisements, which may be targeted to the Content or information on the Services, queries made through the Services, or other information. The types and extent of advertising by Kontribit on the Services are subject to change. In consideration for Kontribit granting you access to and use of the Services, you agree that Kontribit and its third party providers and partners may place such advertising on the Services or in connection with the display of Content or information from the Services whether submitted by you or others.


Any information that you provide to Kontribit is subject to our Privacy Policy, which governs our collection and use of your information. You understand that through your use of the Services you consent to the collection and use of this information, including the transfer of this information to Norway and/or other countries for storage, processing and use by Kontribit. As part of providing you the Services, we may need to provide you with certain communications, such as service announcements and administrative messages. These communications are considered part of the Services and your Kontribit account, which you may not be able to opt-out from receiving.


You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the Services and for any activities or actions under your password. We encourage you to use "strong" passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. Kontribit cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.

You agree that this license includes the right for Kontribit to make such Content available to other companies, organizations or individuals who partner with Kontribit for the syndication, broadcast, distribution or publication of such Content on other media and services, subject to our terms and conditions for such Content use.
