External Links

Although this website tries to only include quality, safe and relevant external links, users are cautioned before clicking any external web links mentioned throughout this website to do so at their own risk. (External links are colored clickable text / banner / image links to other websites.)

This website cannot guarantee or verify the contents of any externally linked website despite my best efforts. Users should know that they click on external links at their own risk and this website, its owner, or its admins, cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any external links mentioned, including purchases or donations for books or services.

 

External Links: Sponsored Links

This website does not currently accept any form of cash advertising, sponsorship, or paid topic insertions, nor does it accept products or services for review, although the owner reserves the right to change that policy in the future. If that happens, the change will be reflected in this policy.

However, we do use Amazon affiliate links throughout the site and receive a small percentage of sales if site visitors make a purchase through those links.

Any opinions, implied or stated directly, do not imply a guarantee or warranty. Purchase and/or use any of mentioned products at the visitor’s own discretion. Responsibility for use of any item and any the consequences that arise from use belongs solely to you, the visitor.

If this site uses sponsored links, clicking on any such link will send you to another website through a referral program which may use cookies and will track the number of referrals sent from this website. Some of these cookies may be saved on your computer’s hard drive. Users who click on sponsored external links do so at their own risk. This website, its owner, nor its admins, cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any external links.

 

Giveaways

Entrants agree to abide by the requirements, guidelines, and/or rules posted here and in each giveaway. If entrants do not follow the rules or are disqualified in some other way, entrants agree that we have the right to delete unqualified comments/entries at our discretion.

In addition, winners are chosen at our discretion, and our decisions are final.

Giveaway prizes fall into one of two categories:

1) Prizes we pay for out of pocket and will be shipping/emailing to the winner ourselves.

Entrants agree that if they win, they receive and use the product at their own risk. Entrants agree to not hold this website, its owner, and/or its admins accountable for anything that happens to the prize, to anything it’s used for, or for anything that may or may not happen in correlation with or as a result of winning or using the prize. We agree to ship any prizes, where applicable, in an envelope/box appropriate for the object(s) and to do so reasonably quickly after the winner is confirmed. Entrants agree that if they win, this website and its owners/admins are not responsible for the prize after it is shipped. If the prize is damaged or lost during shipping, we are not liable, even if the packaging is faulty; the winner agrees that it was packaged it in good faith.

2) Prize sponsored by a group, company, or individual other than this website.

In this case, the winner will likely be put in touch with the company for the purpose of claiming their prize/s. In some cases, we may act as a mediator between the winner and the prize sponsor, in which case, the winner will not have contact with the sponsoring entity unless a problem with the prize arises, in which case the winner will be put in touch with the sponsoring entity work out an agreeable solution. Any agreement between the sponsor and the winner is between those parties only, and we are in no way liable or responsible for anything related to the giveaway or the prize. We would never knowingly accept sponsorship from a company that is dishonest or has bad customer service, but in the rare case that the company does not follow through on their end of the deal (e.g. doesn’t send the winner’s prize, or there is a mishap, miscommunication, rudeness, accident, natural disaster, act of God, etc.), we are not liable. The WINNER must work out a solution with the sponsoring entity.
