The terms "Peer Query", "peerquery.com" "we" or "us" as used in this document shall refer to the founder of Peer Query(Makafui George Dzivenu), all acknowledged supporters(as listed here) all members of the operating team of Peer Query(including curators and moderators) and all our partners(Steem Power delegators) of Peer Query; past and present entities.
The below terms shall cover the activities, liability, and responsibility of the above-prescribed entities to PeerQuery.com and its affiliated services.
The http://www.peerquery.com software is only in the beta edition and could be prone to bugs and other mishaps. We are only in the testing stage and all our activities are conducted on testing bases, not on production bases.
We make no guarantees nor bear no responsibility of warranty of any nature to the users, partners or whomsoever our activities or operations may affect. We specifically disclaim any liability arising from the use or operation of our site, caused by our users or our end.
Peer Query takes a 20% revenue split from all posts created on our platform through reward splitting. This deduction is made on all post and comments created through the PeerQuery.com.
This revenue stream is used to finance the further development of the site, maintenance of the site, pay for marketing, remunerate our team members and pay dividends to our partners.
Also, part of these funds is used to buy voting power for @pq-bot which auto-votes posts created on Peer Query.
While our @pq-bot attempt to auto-vote on all posts created on Peer Query without review, we make no guarantees that every posted created on Peer Query will be voted on.
The Steem Blockchain sets a limited to how many votes can be cast in a minute hence our bot is subject to those restrictions and will not vote on more posts that limited by the Steem blockchain.
Again, our voting bots will be shut down occasionally to allow for the Steem power to recharge. During such period there will be no voting by @pq-bot on posts created on Peer Query.
Peer Query curators will review all posts made to the site to appoint those that meet the community's standards for voting by the @peerquery bot on for featuring on the site.
Our response moderators will only review responses made on queries which are curated.
Our moderators reserve the exclusive right to appoint a response for voting by the @peerquery bot. This process is expected to be unbiased and will not be subject to outside influenced.
To be able to make a ROI on our votes on responses, we will only review responses created on queries through PeerQuery.com. You can respond to queries from any Steem client, however only responses posted from PeerQuery.com will be reviewed for potential voting.
We cannot guarantee that all eligible responses will be appointed for voting, nor can we increase the likeliness of any response being voted.

Until further notice, PeerQuery.com, the brand, products & services as well as its associated assets remain the exclusive property of the founder, developer and admin; Makafui George Dzivenu.
While we strive to represent data as accurate as possible, the current software does not allow us to have an accurate representation of statistics. For this reason, not all statistics about users, queries, tags, amount earned, views and general stats are accurate. We are improving on the accuracy of our metrics, however until then it must be understood that not all statistics displayed on Peer Query are accurate.
While the source code of Peer Query is available under MIT license, the brand is trademarked. Kindly refrain from using the "Peer Query" brand name without permission, as well as hijacking or squatting on the brand's potential digital properties.
Peer Query is only an interface to the Steem blockchain hence all content posted on Peer Query bu users will be published on the respective Steem accounts of the posters. Peer Query does not store any of the content posted through our site, except metadata for indexing purposes.
Users are solely responsible for all their activities on Peer Query including the content they post. Peer Query cannot regulate the nature of materials posted due to the anti-censorship nature of the Steem Blockchain and also due to the fact that content is actually posted on the user's account - not to Peer Query.
Our curators and admins will do their best to curate and vote on only original content, however in the case our original content verification algorithm fails us and we curate or vote on pirated material, affected persons should report the matter to us within 5 days when the post was published.
While we will act in good faith to curb piracy on our site, should the affected persons fail to report to us in time, or should we fail to respond to the matter in time; we will not be liable for any potential loss under piracy laws, criminal laws or any other laws.
Peer Query may change this disclosure from time to time at Peer Query's sole discretion. Notification of any such update will be published to the visit to inform users of the change in policy.
