Terms of Use & Privacy Policy

Here are my policies for TERMS OF USE and PRIVACY. These are the terms that govern the enjoyment and use of my site and all advice and materials. Since these terms may change, you should check back as needed.  If you have questions, feel free to contact me directly by email or letter. My contact information is well publicized.

Terms of Use

I have provided these Terms of Use because I want you to have a great experience using my website.  These terms explain my intent and the parameters for use of the site. My intent is for you to use the information on my site liberally and for your good.Even if you don’t read this Terms of Use, you agree to the full content of this Terms of Use. I reserve the right to modify these terms at any time. Because you use the site, you agree to accept these terms and changes whether or not you have reviewed them and regardless of being or not being notified directly of a change. If at any time you choose not to accept these terms of use, please do not use this site. I hope we stay friends, however.The contents of this site are protected by copyright or trademark laws, and it’s my property. That said, I want you to use it and gain from it; share it with others. Feel free to access and use the information and materials within the site for your personal use – and your teams subject to these terms. But please, you may not use my materials in any form for your own purposes including distribution or sale of my material under any other name or names or for private commercial purposes.You must obtain written permission from me before you publish, republish, use or exploit any of my material. By using my site, you agree to abide by applicable laws.

I Like Links

These Terms of Use apply only to my site and what I publish and not to other sites – even if I provide a link or make a recommendation. As for any other site I create a link to or mention, I am not responsible for any of their content nor do I maintain, endorse, or take any responsibility for their actions, representations, content or disputes you may have. Under no circumstances will I be held responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage that is caused or alleged to have been caused to you in connection with your use of any other site whatsoever. I don’t monitor or control other sites that may create a link to my site. So, users and buyers beware.I strongly support free and open use of credible sites and encourage unfettered links to useful and legitimate materials. However, before a link is established, permission must be requested and granted from me in writing. I also expect that if a problem arises, that the linking party will terminate the link. I do warrant or guarantee other peoples words, promises, services or products. Should you have a link request or comment, feel free to contact me at the well publicized numbers and address.

Changes

Things, including dates, times, content and materials may change without notice. That’s reality. Each of us has the obligation to stay informed and aware. Changes will be posted where applicable in the web site or in these Terms of Use or both. Sometimes a change is beyond reasonable control. I apologize if a change had any impact on you. Let me know and I will try to make it right.

Your Ideas, Your Materials and Unsolicited Submissions

From time to time, people or organizations may say that something I published was/is similar to something they did or may have suggested. The reverse could be true as well. We need to avoid the possibility of such misunderstandings. To avoid such misunderstandings, I ask that you never send me ANY unsolicited ideas, suggestions or materials you consider original and yours. If, despite this policy, you decide to send me your ideas or materials, no matter the content or form, once received from you, I own it without reservation or condition. Once you send something to me, I have no responsibility or plan to protect your interest or return anything to you. I may, at my discretion, use your submission for any purpose and without compensation to you. Unless agreed to in a specific confidentiality agreement, under no circumstances do I agree that your ideas or personal materials are unique to you when they could be in the public domain and already in use elsewhere. Unless a specific and mutually agreed to confidentiality agreement is executed by both parties before any ideas or materials are forwarded to me, I will not be subject to any obligation for anything you send me. So, please do not submit to me anything you consider personal and unique to yourself or that you want me to return. If you still send anything tome, I own it without regard to your claims.

Published Dialogue and Responses, Forums, Chat

I encourage feedback. In doing so, all feedback must treat others with respect and dignity. Posts that are inappropriate, ugly, abusive, vulgar, threatening, harassing, libelous, obscene, invade privacy (e.g., publish someone’s private contact information), violate any known or unknown intellectual or other property rights, or that would otherwise violate any law are prohibited; they are also just plain wrong. I or my designee retain the unfettered right to determine what violates this provision. My decision to remove or edit any comment or materials is mine and is final.Feedback or comments by any user in a forum or email response associated with my site may not be used for any of the following uses: commercial purposes, private purposes, solicit funds, solicit donations, solicit services, post unrelated material, post false information or any material that contains a virus or like offense. I hope people provide honest feedback and useful information. I am not responsible for material appearing in any form or forum unless it came from me. I am not responsible for screening material posted by users that could violate any condition of this policy or is or may be inaccurate. I invite users to immediately let me know about objectionable comments posted by other users.Just in case you thought otherwise, under no circumstances will you receive any compensation for anything you send me or post.At my discretion, I may suspend or terminate your access to my email responses or forums.

Disclaimers

For many years I have been an auctioneer. At every auction, I’ve told audiences (verbally and in writing) that everything we claimed and sold was “as-is”. To me, “As-is” means you get what you see as it is and nothing more. I offered then and now no warranty or guarantee of any kind. Similarly, everything I offer and is found in my site is offered “as is” and without warranties of any kind, either expressed or implied.In providing my services and products, I disclaim all warranties, expressed or implied, including but not limited to any implied effectiveness of my ideas on this site or any other means communicated. While I wish I could, I cannot warrant the site will be uninterrupted or error-free or that defects will be corrected, or that the sites or the server that makes them available are free of viruses or other harmful components. Likewise, although I strive for 100% accuracy, I cannot warrant or promise that the use of my site or what’s in my site is always correct and accurate; the same is true of other sites I mention or are linked. I will make every effort to ensure accuracy. I invite comments and question that may suggest a correction to information I provided – keeping in mind that any proposed correction is not assumed to be accurate nor do I have an obligation to change my website to reflect what others said if I determine that what I said is correct.

Limitation of Liability

Under no circumstances will I be responsible for any damages arising out of the purchase or use of my advice, services, materials or information on my site. In no event shall my total liability to you for any damages or losses ever exceed the actual amount you paid for such advice, services, materials or information, if any.I am not responsible or liable for any loss or damage that is caused or alleged to have been caused to any other person or product used in connection with the use of a photo(s), likeness, name, or information posted on my site.
