Effective Date: July 17, 2018

We are pleased that you have chosen to visit the Edmunds Automotive Network. We were the world's first online resource for automotive information and we strive every day to continue to be the best at what we do.

For purposes of this Visitor Agreement, the Edmunds Automotive Network consists of:

  • Edmunds.com and any other website that we identify as a part of the Edmunds Automotive Network
  • The mobile versions of our websites
  • The apps that we offer
  • Widgets, tools and content from our websites that we offer for display on third-party websites or in third-party apps
  • Products, services or information that we may provide to you in the form of emails, texts (SMS) or chats, or by or through any other communication channel

We provide the Edmunds Automotive Network, and our products and services, to you subject to the provisions of this Visitor Agreement. This Visitor Agreement is a legally binding agreement between you and Edmunds.com, Inc. (referred to in this Visitor Agreement as the "Edmunds Automotive Network," "us," "our" and "we"), so please read it carefully.

By accepting this Visitor Agreement, or by using the Edmunds Automotive Network or viewing its content, you agree to be bound by this Visitor Agreement and each of its provisions. You represent and warrant to us that you have all necessary right, power and authority to agree to this Visitor Agreement, to perform the acts required of you hereunder, and to submit your Visitor-Submitted Content in accordance with the requirements of this Visitor Agreement.

General


Certain Defined Terms

As used in this Visitor Agreement:

"Community Services" means our discussion Forums, the web's most established automotive message boards; Dealer Ratings & Reviews; Vehicle Ratings and Reviews; and any other feature of the Edmunds Automotive Network that permits you to submit content to us.

"Moderators" are the individuals who host, moderate or supervise the Community Services on behalf of the Edmunds Automotive Network.

"Visitors" means you and the other individuals who visit or use the Edmunds Automotive Network.

"VSC" or "Visitor-Submitted Content" means all content submitted to us by Visitors through the Community Services or other channels for display in the Edmunds Automotive Network, as well as any attachments to those submissions or otherwise provided to us.

Changes to this Visitor Agreement

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion and at any time, to make changes to this Visitor Agreement and our other policies concerning the use of the Edmunds Automotive Network, including the Community Services. We also reserve the right, in our sole discretion and at any time, to waive or modify any of the terms of this Visitor Agreement as they apply to a specific item of VSC or as they apply to a specific Visitor, without affecting the application of these terms to any other VSC or Visitors. Changes will be effective when made and the updated Visitor Agreement or applicable policy is posted on the Edmunds Automotive Network; provided, however, that no such change shall be applicable to any dispute between you and us that arises prior to the time such change is effective. Accordingly, you should visit this Visitor Agreement periodically to review its provisions.

Registration on Edmunds

We require that, to use certain Community Services, you first register with us by providing to us an email address, a password and, in some instances, a username or screen name or other information. That information is referred to as your "Registration Information."

You agree not to register on behalf of another person or to impersonate any person or entity. You agree not to use a false email address or to otherwise deceive or mislead our Visitors or Moderators as to the origin or your VSC. You also agree not to choose a username or a screen name for the purposes of deceiving or misleading our Visitors and/or the Moderators as to your true identity (for example by impersonating any other real or fictitious person or entity), or that (i) suggests that you are a representative of an entity when you are not, (ii) incorporates a solicitation (e.g., yoursitedotcom, dealershipname, isellporsches), or (iii) includes any profanity or is offensive.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You are responsible for all usage of and activity in the Community Services through your username and password, including use of your username and password by any third party. Your account is unique to you and may not be transferred to any third party. You should notify us of any known or suspected unauthorized use of your Registration Information.

Edmunds requires that a Visitor be not less than 13 years old in order to provide Registration Information. Edmunds also requires that a Visitor who provides Registration Information not be a resident of the European Union. Accordingly, by agreeing to be bound by this Visitor Agreement and providing Registration Information, you are representing to us that you meet these requirements.

Keeping Your Personal Information Private

Visitors should be aware that disclosure in the Community Services of your full name, street address or other personal information raises privacy concerns and may result in solicitations from third parties or unwanted communications. We disclaim any responsibility or liability arising from your disclosure of such personal information, or any other information, in the Community Services.

Violations of this Visitor Agreement

Any Visitor who violates this Visitor Agreement may be banned permanently from using some or all of the Community Services. If your registration is terminated or deactivated by us, you agree not to re-register and you acknowledge that your VSC may be deleted and/or your username may be given to another Visitor without notice to you.

Edmunds reserves and retains all rights and remedies provided by law or equity to redress any violation of this Visitor Agreement, as well as the right to take action to nullify, block or deny your ability to submit VSC. You understand that we may exercise this right in our sole discretion.

The Community Services and Visitor-Submitted Content


License of Visitor-Submitted Content to Us

You agree that, by submitting any Visitor-Submitted Content to us, you are granting to us and our designees a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, fully assignable, sublicensable, fully paid up and royalty-free license to use that Visitor-Submitted Content, without restrictions of any kind and without any payment or other consideration of any kind, or any permission or notification, to you or any third party. This license shall include, without limitation, the irrevocable right to reproduce, publish, create derivative works from, combine with other works, modify, alter, adapt, edit, reformat, translate, distribute copies, display, perform, provide to third parties and sublicense that Visitor-Submitted Content, and all rights therein, in the name of Edmunds.com, Inc. or its designees throughout the universe in perpetuity in any and all media now or hereafter known.

This license provides us with the right to use any Visitor-Submitted Content for any purpose, including for advertising or other commercial use. These rights apply to your name, other personal information, photo, likeness and voice, if included in that Visitor-Submitted Content. If we publish your Visitor-Submitted Content or authorize or sublicense others to do so, your Visitor-Submitted Content may be edited for length or clarity or for any other reason (either before or after it is published), and it may be attributed to you by name and city (if provided to us) unless you expressly request that you remain anonymous. You waive any "moral rights" in your Visitor-Submitted Content.

You are also granting to us the non-exclusive right to seek to enjoin and/or obtain damages from any third party for the unauthorized use or reproduction of your Visitor-Submitted Content.

You represent and warrant that your Visitor-Submitted Content (i) is your original work, and (ii) does not violate and will not violate the rights of any third party or any local, state, national or foreign law, including any right of publicity, right of privacy or any other proprietary right.

Edmunds shall have the exclusive option to purchase from you and acquire all right, title and interest, including, without limitation, any copyrights and other intellectual property law in and to the VSC you submit, which rights shall include the right to apply for copyright registration for any or all of the VSC, and all rights therein, in the name of Edmunds.com, Inc. or its designees throughout the universe in perpetuity in any and all media now or hereafter known. The option shall be exercisable by us from the date you submit the VSC until two years from that date. If we exercise the option, you agree to accept payment in the amount of $1000 USD or value in kind at our discretion, and you agree to execute, acknowledge and deliver such other instruments consistent with an assignment of the intellectual property as may be reasonably necessary to carry out or effectuate the purposes or intent of the assignment of the VSC.

Management of Visitor-Submitted Content

We reserve the right in our sole discretion to review all VSC and to remove, or to decline to display, any VSC. However, we also reserve the right in our sole discretion to display any VSC that is submitted to us, or to decline to remove any VSC, even if it violates this Visitor Agreement.

While we have no obligation to do so, we do monitor certain Visitor-Submitted Content. However, since not all of the areas that are monitored are done so on a "real time" basis, you may see Visitor-Submitted Content that violates this Visitor Agreement before we do. Please report such items to our Moderators by using the Help link on every page or the "Report It" link (where available), or by clicking "Flag" in the Forums.

We do not make any promises as to what actions we will or will not take with respect to any VSC, and no such promises should be inferred from either this Visitor Agreement or any communication by us. VSC posted in the Forums may be revised or deleted during the four hours after it is posted, but may not be revised or deleted by the Visitor who posted it after that time. Dealer Ratings and Reviews may not be revised or deleted by Visitors, but a review may be supplemented by the Member who submitted it. You understand that the VSC of other Visitors is based on their individual opinions and experiences, which may vary significantly from one person to the next. We do not endorse or guarantee the accuracy of any VSC, and you agree that we are not responsible for the accuracy of any VSC and will not be liable for any damages incurred as a result of the submission or use thereof.

The Forums

Your email address included in your Forums profile will not be displayed, unless you change your profile settings to request that it be displayed.

We welcome all points of view on automotive matters. However, although interactions within the Forums occur in cyberspace, everyday manners apply. Please respect and interact with fellow Visitors as you would in any public arena. Civility and respect underlie the success of an on-line community; if you wish to take issue with the statements of other Visitors or the Moderators, please engage in healthy, mature debate and not immature behavior or name-calling. While we want to maintain an inviting environment for all Visitors, disruptive conduct, such as off-topic comments in a topic-oriented discussion, is not allowed. Neither is "spam" (e.g., posting your message in multiple places throughout the Forums).

The Forums are areas for the exchange of information and, in some areas, advice. Questions asked may be answered, but please do not attempt to take the conversation out of the Forums (such as by requesting that an answer be emailed). Such actions deprive other Visitors of the benefit of the Forums.

Other than the inclusion (at your election) of your email address, you may not submit VSC that contains personally identifiable information about any person or entity, such as telephone numbers or email addresses, including your own, or information that could result in an invasion of privacy or harassment of any person or entity. If you are describing, in the Forums, a transaction or dealing with an automobile dealership, you may include the dealership name and its location. However, please do not include in a Forums posting the telephone numbers, email addresses or other contact information of salespeople or any other individuals.

Including a link in your VSC to another website is permissible when appropriate in the context of answering a question posed by another Visitor, but not for the purpose of promoting other automotive communities or third-party products or services. The Moderators will remove any link they believe does not provide value to Visitors.

Profanity, Harassment and Other Inappropriate Conduct

You may not submit VSC that is indecent, profane (including masked profanity where symbols, initials, intentional misspellings or other characters are used to suggest profane language), obscene, pornographic, abusive, threatening, misleading, illegal or defamatory, or any material that interferes with the ability of others to enjoy the Community Services. We wish to maintain a family-friendly, "G-rated" environment. Please use this as your guideline when in doubt.

In addition, we do not tolerate a Visitor harassing, threatening or embarrassing other Visitors — including harassment or denigration based on age, gender, race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or disability, marital status or veteran status — or the stalking of other Visitors. You agree not to engage in this behavior.

Illegal and Objectionable Activities

We do not allow the promotion of illegal conduct or activities or fraudulent schemes in the Forums. Specifically, you may not advocate illegal conduct, such as street racing, reckless driving or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. You also agree to not engage in any illegal activity in connection with your participation in or use of the Forums.

Rights of Third Parties

You may not submit VSC that infringes in any manner on the copyright, trademark or intellectual property rights of any person or entity, or that contains any confidential or proprietary information of any person or entity, or that otherwise violates the legal rights of any person or entity. You may not use the Forums to display or distribute unauthorized copyrighted material, including articles, photos, videos, artwork, recordings, designs or computer programs (except for quotes of reasonable length from articles or similar materials).

We disclaim any responsibility or liability for copyrighted materials posted in the Forums. If you believe that your work has been copied in the Forums in a manner that constitutes copyright infringement, please follow the procedures set forth below under the caption "Copyright Complaints."

You agree that you will not use or reproduce any VSC of any other Visitor in any manner or in any media, including posting or republishing any VSC of another Visitor on any other website. (You may, however, occasionally reprint or post excerpts, not to exceed 50 words, from a single item of VSC of another Visitor if it is clear that the original and full item of VSC is available on the Edmunds Automotive Network.) You may also display a link to, or the address of, the page of the Edmunds Automotive Network on which any VSC appears.

Promotions and Solicitations

You agree that, except with our prior consent, you will not upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise use the Forums to make or distribute any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, contests, sweepstakes, survey requests or promotional materials, to campaign for any political cause, or to implore Visitors to take actions that are intended to further a personal or commercial purpose.

You agree you will not use information supplied within the Forums to do any of the foregoing, by email or any other method. You agree not to gather public email addresses from Visitor profiles or harvest or collect other information about other Visitors from the Edmunds Automotive Network, including usernames, or use any of that information for the purpose of sending unsolicited bulk communications or for any other purpose. You may not use or provide to any person or entity, whether or not for a fee, any directory of or information regarding other Visitors.

Links included as a part of your signature line are never permitted and will be removed by the Moderators.

Dealer Ratings and Reviews

This Community Service provides you with an opportunity to describe your experience with a particular dealership and to comment on the experiences of other reviewers.

To facilitate the free flow of useful information about these businesses, we have established a number of "rules of the road" for posting a review or comment:

  • Your review should describe what your experience was like, with facts and not fluff. Stay on-topic. We do not publish reviews that do not provide information about the reviewer's personal experience. Reviews that do not provide sufficient detail concerning that experience may be rejected as unhelpful to our Visitors.
  • You may not submit a review of your experience if you have been offered any payment or other incentive to do so, or if you have a personal relationship with the owner or any of the employees of the dealership.
  • Your review must describe an experience that occurred within the past two years.
  • While we do permit you to include your description of and frank opinion about your experience, we do not permit "name-calling" or the use of profanity.
  • We do not permit the posting of ads or solicitations, HTML or links, or personal contact information (e.g., telephone numbers, email addresses) for you or others.
  • You may include the name of any salesperson or other individual with whom you dealt but — to reiterate — not his or her telephone number, email address or other contact information.
  • Please do not write in ALL CAPS.
  • A comment can be positive or negative, ask questions and/or provide supporting information.

Please note that, after a review is submitted, it may not be revised or deleted by you — and we will not do so if requested. However, you may add additional information concerning your experience by submitting an update.

While we ask that our Visitors not post reviews and comments that are defamatory or otherwise inaccurate, and that they refrain from offensive personal descriptions or incivility, we do not remove a review or comment in response to allegations that it contains defamatory language or inaccuracies, or because it may be offensive to some people.

We have a policy of not posting a review that we know, or have reason to believe, is not a genuine reflection of a consumer's experience at a dealership. However, we do not remove a review in response to an allegation that it is not genuine unless we are presented with persuasive extrinsic evidence.

We do not make any promises as to what actions we will or will not take with respect to any review or comment, and no such promises should be inferred from either this Visitor Agreement or any communication by us.

Dealers and their representatives have the ability to comment on the reviews of their businesses. However any person associated with the business, either personally or professionally, must disclose that relationship in his or her comment. If you represent a dealership, please visit our Dealer Resource Center and download our Information Sheet; it includes tips on how best to engage and benefit from our Dealer Ratings and Reviews.

It is a violation of this Visitor Agreement for you to (i) create, submit or post any review on behalf of another person, (ii) create, submit or post any review that is not a bona fide reflection of your actual experience, or (iii) advise or induce anyone else to create or submit, or to participate or assist anyone in the creation or posting of, any review that is not a bona fide reflection of the actual experience of the person submitting that review. Anyone who violates the foregoing prohibition will be subject to legal recourse by Edmunds, including claims for damages and/or for indemnification as provided below.

Vehicle Ratings and Reviews

This Community Service provides you with an opportunity to describe your experience with a particular vehicle and to comment on the experience of other reviewers. In an effort to provide Visitors with the most valuable consumer insight and information, we have established a number of "rules of the road" for posting a review or comment:

  • Please only write a review if you have had hands-on experience with the vehicle. Please limit your review to the facts and details of your experience driving the vehicle, and do not include facts or details about the dealership from which you may have purchased or leased the vehicle. (If you desire to describe your experience at the dealership, please submit a Dealer Review.)
  • You may not submit a vehicle review if you have been offered any payment or other incentive to do so. If you or a member of your household is associated with any automotive manufacturer, dealer or advertising agency for an automotive manufacturer or dealer, or with a supplier to the automotive industry, you are required to disclose that relationship in your review or comment.
  • Please do not use profanity in your review text.
  • We do not permit the posting of for-sale ads or solicitations, HTML or links, or personal contact information (e.g., telephone numbers, email addresses) for you or for others.
  • Please do not write in ALL CAPS.
  • A comment can be positive or negative, ask questions and/or provide supporting information.

Please note that, after a review is submitted, it may not be deleted by you and we will not do so if requested. However, you may edit or update a review by clicking the "update your review" button located beneath your review, or by following the instructions sent to you by email following publication of your review.

We do not make any promises as to what actions we will or will not take with respect to any review or comment, and no such promises should be inferred from either this Visitor Agreement or any communication by us.

Availability of Community Services

While we make reasonable efforts to ensure that the Community Services are available at all times, we do not guarantee that the Community Services will be uninterrupted or error-free, and we do not guarantee that Visitors will be able to access or use all the Community Services or all of their features at all times.

We may change, suspend or discontinue any or all Community Services, or any or all of their features, at any time. We may also impose limits on your access to or use of certain features of the Community Services, or restrict your access to any or all of the Community Services, in all cases without notice to you or liability to us.

Community Services Security; Violations of Law

You may not submit VSC that consists of or contains software viruses. Violations of system and network security are prohibited, and may result in criminal and civil liability. Examples of system and network security violations include the following:

  • Any automated use of the system;
  • Use of software that allows your account to stay logged on while you are not actively using your account; and
  • Unauthorized access to or use of data, systems or networks, including any attempt to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of a system or network or to breach security or authentication measures without the express authorization of the owner of the system or network.

We may investigate incidents involving such violations, any violations of this Visitor Agreement that may constitute or have the potential to constitute violations of law, and any activity by Visitors on the Edmunds Automotive Network that constitute or may constitute violations of law. You understand that we may report any such activity to, and cooperate with, law enforcement, with or without receipt by us of a subpoena or other legal process.

Ideas Submitted to Edmunds


From time to time, we provide opportunities for individuals to submit to us ideas and improvements related to the Edmunds Automotive Network and our other services and technology.

You agree that, by submitting your ideas and/or improvements: (i) your submission will automatically become the property of and owned by Edmunds; (ii) Edmunds may use or redistribute your submission and its contents for any purpose and in any way without any restrictions; (iii) Edmunds has no obligation by Edmunds to review any submission; (iv) Edmunds has no obligation by Edmunds to keep any submission confidential, and (v) Edmunds has no other obligation to you or contract with you, implied or otherwise, with respect to your ideas or improvements.

Electronic Communications


When you visit the Edmunds Automotive Network or send emails to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We may communicate with you by email or by posting notices on the Edmunds Automotive Network. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically or that you provide to us electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

You also understand and agree that we may send you certain communications in connection with your use of the Community Services, such as service announcements and administrative messages, and that you will not be able to opt out of receiving those communications, and that we may send you copies of any periodic newsletters or similar informative communications we send to Visitors who have registered with us (but you will be able to opt out of receiving future issues at any time). Any communications sent to you personally concerning your participation in the Community Services or related matters are not intended to be made public, and you agree not to post those communications in the Community Services or elsewhere on the internet.

Furthermore, prices displayed on the Edmunds Automotive Network for vehicles advertised by dealers are sometimes calculated by us based on data and rules supplied to us by the dealers or by intermediaries who transmit data from the dealers to us.

The Edmunds Automotive Network displays third-party advertising, promotions and marketing materials, some of which may be identified as for our "partners," and links to many websites not operated by us. This may include sites where you can obtain products and services such as new and used vehicles, vehicle financing, insurance, maintenance plans, roadside assistance plans, vehicle inspection services, and credit reporting/monitoring/application services. While we encourage you to visit such sites and review the opportunities those sites offer, Edmunds does not control, endorse or guarantee the content of any advertising, promotions or marketing materials we display to you, or any of the content found on the sites to which we link. We are not responsible for the claims made by third parties or for the products or services those third parties provide, and we do not guarantee or warrant the prices, terms, quality, reliability or performance of the products or services provided by those third parties.

We make no representation or warranty concerning, and we are not responsible for, any of the products or services those dealers or third parties provide, the manner in which those products or services are provided, or for any use made by those dealers or third parties of your personally identifiable information.
