By using this site you agree to abide by our terms and conditions. These are as follows...
The administrators of this website (TheMovieDownloads.net), hereafter referred to as "us" or "we", are not responsible for the content, quality or function of the third party web sites and products we review. Whilst we aim to provide an impartial service in providing independent reviews of the best movies, games and music related websites and products, we will not be held accountable for any service or downloaded material which you deem to be unsatisfactory. The views expressed herein are merely opinions of the editors and of end-users. Whilst we regularly review all the sites we recommend, we will not be held accountable for any incorrect or misleading information we provide on this site. The sites we recommend are all third-party sites and may be subject to change without warning. The information we provide is correct to the best of our knowledge, but it is ultimately the responsibility of the user to check all information on the vendor's website before making a purchase of any kind. Should you spot an error on our part due to a site having suddenly changed (for example if the billing information we provide happens to go out of date) then we would be pleased to hear from you - our contact details can be found in the Contact Us section.
Respecting copyright laws
Using file-sharing (P2P) software for the uploading or downloading of copyrighted works without the permission or authorization of the copyright holders may be illegal and could subject you (or the ISP subscriber) to civil and/or criminal liability and penalties. For more information about U.S. copyright law, please visit www.copyright.gov and www.copyright.gov/title17/
Some content found on file-sharing (P2P) networks may be reproduced, uploaded and downloaded. There are a significant number of copyright holders who have authorized the sharing of their content for non-commercial purposes, such as some content with Creative Commons format licenses, and there is also content available in the public domain and not protected by copyright. Most commercially released popular songs, films, and software is NOT authorized for free redistribution but requires separate purchase or licensing.
You are responsible for ensuring that you do not infringe any copyright laws by downloading and/or sharing any copyrighted material. There are copyright notices and disclaimers on all the sites we recommend that aim to help you stay within the law. Please read these notices carefully. We are not responsible for any illegal downloads you acquire as a result of joining any of our recommended sites.
Downloaded content - viruses, spyware, and adware
Downloading files over the internet is potentially hazardous no matter where you download them from. Files can contain viruses, adware, spyware or other malicious software which may damage or affect the performance of your computer. While we only recommend legitimate sites here, some of the sites we recommend are P2P (peer-to-peer) sites, which means that you will join a file-sharing community on the internet, and as such you may be downloading material from other end-users, whose computers may or may not be infected with viruses, adware or spyware. Wherever possible, we highlight those sites we recommend that guarantee virus-, adware- and spyware-free downloads, but it is ultimately your responsibility to check the small-print of the site to ensure that that is the case. We will not be held accountable for any damage that occurs to your computer as a result of downloading any material from any of the sites we recommend. You download entirely at your own risk! There are a number of precautions you can take.
We strongly recommend you take the time to arm your computer with the latest virus checker, firewall, and adware and spyware prevention, detection and removal tools. This should ensure beyond all reasonable doubt that your computer is kept safe, clean and free from attack (although we make no guarantees to this effect). There are a number of excellent virus checkers, firewalls and adware/spyware detection and removal tools available on the internet that are moderately priced. Please visit our Anti-virus and Spyware/Adware sections for some of our recommended choices in these categories.
Note: that any material downloaded from P2P sites may not be what it claims to be. Certain end-users may miss-label their files to indicate that they are something other than what they appear to be. These sites often contain pornography and certain downloads may be labeled as something benign and then turn out to be pornography. It is ultimately the responsibility of parents to check what their children are downloading - this is a good rule of thumb for anything on the internet.
