Policonomics » Terms of Use
Policonomics is a dictionary built by contributors willing to write definitions. It is not an open-content collaborative encyclopedia such as Wikipedia, and every article will be reviewed by the Policonomics team before publishing. However, even though we work hard to make sure that the information made available to you is as accurate and complete as it can be, we cannot guarantee it. This is, we make no guarantee of accuracy or completeness. No kind of agreement or contract is created between Policonomics’ users and Policonomics itself. If you feel some of the information might be inaccurate, please contact us. We provide this service “as is”, “with all faults” and “as available”.

For legal reasons, most dictionaries and encyclopedias in the Internet use a legal disclaimer that look just like this. You can read some of these similar disclaimers in this link, which is provided by Wikipedia itself.

Although we believe the definitions you will find in Policonomics are well written and help understand economic and political issues, we encourage you to also use textbooks and encyclopedias for deepening your knowledge.

If you see any copyright infringement, on any of the content published in our site, please contact us so we can amend it as soon as possible. This website has been designed so people can get a good understanding of economics, and any kind of copyright infringement is not intended. We will do our best to prevent this from happening.

If you are a contributor, please refrain from using any copyrighted content without previously quoting the author or providing a source. Policonomics will not be held responsible for the content published by its contributors. In case of a legal conflict the final contributor is accountable for what he writes.
