Press Release Policy
PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU USE OUR SERVICES
Must Meet Overall Policies
MaxGroup Media does a thorough review of all press releases (PRs) before distribution, but only to ensure these are newsworthy and meet the specified editorial guidelines in terms of style, structure, and format as recommended by the Associated Press. All PRs submitted must have content that shares real newsworthy information and must not be promotional or misleading, or market any product or service directly or indirectly.
PRs should not promote a business model or practice that is deemed as unacceptable or is not in accordance with MaxGroup Media’a overall marketing and business policies. The decision whether a PR meets the accepted industry standards will be taken at the sole discretion of our experts.
All claims made in client PR’s are the sole responsibility of the client as a third party content provider and are not asserted or guaranteed by MaxGroup Business Solutions or MaxGroup Media. Syndicating a PR to our network does not indicate that MaxGroup Media has fact-checked the information.
Using spam phrases is not allowed in PRs. Please don’t use common advertisement and promotional words and phrases like 'Click here’ or ‘Great business opportunity’ and the likes. Avoid using exclamation marks and caps on specific words with an intent to promote your products and/ or services.
No Content that Intends to Harm
PRs must not contain any content that is intended to harm the reputation of an individual, group, or company. The tone and tenor of the content must not incite, promote, or express hatred and must steer clear of bigotry, racism, or unjustified violence. The releases must not include "hate speech", be it directed at an individual or a group, depending upon the membership within some classes, which include but are not limited to, language, religious affiliation, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, or sex.
It is the responsibility of the company to make sure the information used in the PR is accurate and current to substantiate any professional claims. All PRs referencing legal action or criminal matters must be backed by appropriate documents duly referenced and attested by appropriate authorities.
All PR’s once completed by our staff will be submitted to the client via email with a request to edit, alter, or correct any information that is incorrect. The client will have that opportunity to make such corrections and resubmit to MaxGroup Media. This process will be used as many times as possible until the client replies via email with an “I AGREE” statement of responsibility attesting to the fact that the client agrees to be held solely responsible for all of the content and any and all resulting consequences of the FINAL APPROVED PRESS RELEASE.
By your submission of any draft of a PR, or if being interviewed for your convenience to provide the information for a PR, you agree to abide by all the terms, conditions, policies, procedures, and guidelines stated on this document. MaxGroup Media may amend these terms and conditions from time to time and you will be duly notified. If you do not agree to the changes and modifications, you must clearly state so and not use our PR services. Your continued usage of our services will automatically signify your acceptance of the updated terms.
MaxGroup Media will not be liable for any acts or omission by you, including any damages of any kind that you may incur as a result of such acts. MaxGroup Media services must not be used for unlawful purposes or for promotion of illegal activities. Our relationship will be terminated immediately on knowledge of such acts and you will be reported to the appropriate authorities.

MaxGroup Media cannot review all the materials submitted, nor do we conduct fact-checking, as we are providing PR’s as a “pay for service” only purchase and therefore cannot be responsible for the content of the material, its use and effect. By operating our Newsroom and syndicating PR’s, MaxGroup Media does not imply that it endorses the material posted and trusts such material to be useful and within established legal framework.
MaxGroup Media cannot review all of the materials made available through websites or web pages to which MaxGroup Media links. We do not have any control over those websites and web pages and are not responsible for their contents and its use.

You are solely responsible for taking all precautions necessary to protect yourself and your systems from viruses, worms and damaging content. MaxGroup Media disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from use of such websites and web pages.
MaxGroup Media requests others to respect its intellectual property rights just as it respects the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that your work is being infringed on this site, please inform our agent for claims of copyright or other intellectual property infringement immediately.
MaxGroup Media may terminate our relationship with you, to all or any part of the Newsroom
at any time and remove your content from the site, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. If you wish to terminate this Agreement or any MaxGroup accounts, you may do so by providing the 30-day advance notice to: Support@MaxGroupBusiness.com .
Notwithstanding the current and any other agreement, if you have submitted and paid for content for a PR, such content can be removed by MaxGroup Media if we determine in our sole discretion that your content violates our Terms of Service or you materially breach this Agreement.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless MaxGroup Business Solutions, LLC and MaxGroup Media, its officers, directors, agents, employees, its subsidiaries, affiliates, contractors, and its licensors, and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents from and against any and all claims, losses, damages (actual and consequential), suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys' fees, of every kind and nature, arising out of your use of all of our services including but not limited to, out of your violation of this Agreement.

MaxGroup Media may assign its rights under this Agreement without condition. This Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
You can request to stop a scheduled or under review PR before publication.
We process all requests for stopping PR’s received during normal business hours
(Monday-Thursday, 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM ET).
Write to Support@MaxGroupBusiness.com to make a stop request.
Because MaxGroup Media’s staff including writers, editors, graphics team and others would already have put forth best efforts in completing your PR, you agree that your request to stop a scheduled PR will not result in any monetary refund and you agree to be responsible for any subscription charges should the PR be a part of any and all SEO Plans that you may be subscribing to.
A press release once distributed can’t be stopped and removal is not possible once syndicated.
IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ANY PORTION OF THE AGREEMENT ABOVE, PLEASE DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES USE OUR SERVICE.
