Considering the real-time nature of the Message Board, it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information that is posted. Any message posted on our forums expresses only the views of the author of the message and does not necessarily reflect our views.

Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable, is encouraged to contact us immediately by e-mail or the contact form. We have the ability to remove these messages if determined necessary, within a reasonable time frame because this is a manual process. Please note that we may not be able to do so for no reason whatsoever.

We also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message(s) posted by you.

We reserve the right to remove any posts and/or deactivate any user at any time with no prior notice.

No Liability for Viruses etc
We endeavour to ensure that all content on goodforlunch is free of viruses and any other device which may have an adverse effect on your system and data and we ask that you do the same with any User Content you upload.

Please note that no matter what protection we or you have, there is no guarantee that you will not be attacked, hence the need for regular backups.
