Description of Service and Disclaimer
The Site provides the world’s largest famous quotations website and offers a free, all-access pass to the world of quotations. We educate and entertain audiences with family-friendly quotations from history’s most prominent figures through to today’s newsmakers – famous celebrities, athletes, politicians, authors, and everything in between. Mentoworld is supported by ad revenue generated from ads that appear on our Site.
In keeping with our mission to share our knowledge with the world, Mentoworld provides a hand-selected ‘Quote’ on our page, on Facebook, Instagram,Youtube, Twitter, and Pinterest. You can ‘Like’ us, Follow us, or sign up for our RSS feeds to receive our daily quote in your newsfeed.
We strive to source our quotes and review them to ensure their accuracy. However, we can’t provide any 100% assurances about the quotes we post. That said, most people find our site enormously satisfying, and they love and adore our wonderful site.
Since fans share our unbridled enthusiasm for quotations, our Mentoworld submission form allows users to upload and submit quotes by famous people, provided that the user provides a reference URL as an accompanying source that verifies when, where and by whom the quote was spoken or written. While we appreciate submissions, we cannot and do not guarantee that we will publish them. Visitors can also email suggestions to us; we appreciate these, but there’s no guarantee we will follow them. The Site does not enable users to upload or post quotes directly to our Site for public view. A human being (not a quote-bot!) reviews each and every submission and suggestion submitted. While we actively respond to submissions and suggestions by making appropriate additions, changes or enhancements to our site, we do not reply to individual submissions or suggestions.
The Site may enable access to third-party services and websites. Use of the Site or our services requires Internet access, which may require that you accept additional terms of service. We are not responsible for any such terms of service. You are solely responsible for complying with the terms of service and use of any third-party website.
This Site may include hyperlinks to other websites which are not maintained by Mentoworld. We are not responsible for the content of such external websites and we make no representations whatsoever concerning the content or accuracy of, opinions expressed in, or other links provided by such websites. The inclusion of any hyperlink to external websites does not imply endorsement by Mentoworld of those websites or any products or services referred to therein. The terms of service and privacy policies applicable to external websites may be different from those applicable to our Site. If you decide to access any external website through a link within our Site, you do so entirely at your own risk, and Mentoworld will have no liability for any loss or damage arising from your access or use of any external website. Since Mentoworld is not responsible for the availability of these websites, or their content, you should direct any concerns regarding an external website to the administrator of that website. You agree that you will bring no suit or claim against us arising from or based upon any such use of external websites. Hyperlinks to other websites that are provided on the Site are not intended to imply that: (a) we are affiliated or associated with any external website; or (b) any linked site is authorized to use any of our trademarks, trade names, logos, or copyrights.
Copyright (Yours & Ours)
Despite being the largest quotation website on the Internet, we haven’t yet become so megalomaniacal as to declare we own the exclusive rights to quotes that other people have said. However, we do own the copyright to the arrangement of information on the Site.
Plus, we can make you agree to stuff through this contract that further limits your rights, such as by writing this: You agree not to copy, distribute, display, disseminate, or otherwise reproduce any of the information on our Site, or our Site itself, without our prior written permission. This includes, but is not limited to, all original content (such as BUT NOT LIMITED TO! articles, photographs, biographies) and a prohibition on collecting aggregated information from our Site that is in the public domain and publishing it elsewhere. This prohibition does not extend to uses which would, if governed solely by the copyright law of India, be considered a “fair use.”
In other words, by accepting this Agreement, you can use our stuff for legitimate academic, research, and reporting projects, but you can’t use it to just copy and paste a bunch of our stuff on your own website. That hurts our search engine rankings, not to mention our feelings. We’d also point out that we don’t pay for anything you submit to us via our submission form or suggestion email inbox simply because you provide it of your own volition. By submitting material to us, you acknowledge that you have the right to do so, and that you completely transfer to us any rights you might have had in the submission.
Also, all photographs published on Mentoworld, and on our social media pages on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and Pinterest, are protected by copyright. Our photographs are so awesome, we’ve watermarked each and every one of them. You agree not to copy, distribute, display, disseminate, or otherwise reproduce Mentoworld photographs, without our prior written permission. That said, there is one exception: You can share our photographs via social media as long as, and only if, they link back to Mentoworld or the Site. If you steal our images, publish them and link them back to your own website, we will find you… and that won’t be good! Share our photographs, enjoy them, be inspired by them – do not infringe on them, and we will remain friends.
Third-Party Websites, Advertisers or Services
Additionally, your dealings with or participation in promotions of advertisers found on Mentoworld, including payment and delivery of goods, and any other terms (such as warranties) are solely between you and such advertisers.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Mentoworld and its subsidiaries, agents, managers, and other affiliated companies, and their employees, contractors, agents, officers and directors, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Service, including any data or content transmitted or received by you; (ii) your violation of any term of this Agreement, including without limitation your breach of any of the representations and warranties above; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation any right of privacy, publicity rights or intellectual property rights; (iv) your violation of any law, rule or regulation of India or any other country; (v) any claim or damages that arise as a result of any of your User Content or any that are submitted via your account; or (vi) any other party’s access and use of the Service with your unique username, password or other appropriate security code.
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws in force in India, without regard to conflict-of-law principles. The offer and acceptance of this contract is deemed to have occurred in India. You agree that any dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement will be heard solely by a court of competent jurisdiction in India.
If you bring a dispute in a manner other than in accordance with this section, You agree that we may move to have it dismissed, and that you will be responsible for our reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs.
You agree that the prevailing party is entitled to all of its reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements from the unsuccessful party in any dispute.
