WEBSITE DISCLAIMER for www.thehaddock.co.uk

The Haddock is a Funny News Website full of Weird News and Topical stories, all of which are completely fictitious. We do not wish to upset anyone, these stories are just jokes designed to make people laugh. If you see anything on the site which you think is offensive or libellous or plagiarist in any way, please inform us immediately and we shall remove it. Further to that, we do collect email addresses and names from the subscription form but under no circumstances do we share any personal information with anyone else!

Okay, before we continue, let’s make the following things absolutely clear!

1) We try our best to use non-copywrited images. If you see one of your images on our site and you want us to take it down, let us know and we will do so IMMEDIATELY!

2) The site has swearing on it…but we are not, to our knowledge, overtly offensive or predjudiced, if you think we have done something that offends you or you don’t like something we’ve said… just tell us, we’ll talk to you about it and if we agree we’ll take it down. Our aim is to make people laugh, not make them hate us or us to put them down.

3) We have guest interviews, audio and video. The views, comments, language and anything else said by the people we talk to are their own…The Haddock takes no responsibility for offence caused by these people. But, once again, if you don’t like it and you have due cause…then talk to us and we’ll look into it.

But don’t waste your time sueing us…we don’t have any money!
