Summary & Disclaimer
http://ukbusinessbrokers.com is owned and operated by Clinton Lee.
http://ukbusinessbrokers.com abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship,
opinion and identity. Content in blog posts on this site are my personal opinion unless stated otherwise. Various laws in the US & UK require disclosure where third parties have paid for or influenced content. For the avoidance of doubt, we do not accept paid adverts, we do not take compensation from third parties to mention them in articles or blog posts we create on this site.
However, information in the directory section of this site - where brokers and their contact details etc., are posted - is information provided by third parties. They are of two types - a) information provided by the owner of the business listed in the directory and b) comments about those businesses made (volutarily) by visitors to this site. In the case of information provided by the business owner on their listing page, this is sometimes paid for by the business to cover our costs of manual verification of some of that information. We never pay for feedback made by visitors.
As the directory pages mentioned above contain third party input, we make no representations, warranties or assurances as to the accuracy, currency or completeness of the content contained on those pages. While efforts are made to ensure that comments and feedback posted are genuine, do not rely on these comments when choosing or working with businesses listed in the directory.
We am never directly compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites
various other topics. Any product claim, statistic, quote or
other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
If you have any questions regarding this policy, or your dealings with this website, please find email, phone and postal contact details here.
