Unfortunately we are living in a suing trigger happy world, therefore a page like this is necessary to keep you all informed, and me out of legal trouble!, about this website and how it interacts with its visitors.

Short & Sweet Version

Copyright – Don’t steal my content as I don’t steal yours. If anything here is free to share, I will clearly state so. If I don’t state so, it isn’t a grab, run and share case! OK? Thanks!

Cookies – Like nearly all websites out there, this websites uses cookies. If you don’t know what they are and do, feel free to scroll down for further information. But in short, I use them mainly to get an early morning smile on my face when I see how many people have visited my website. Nothing more sinister!

Earning Disclaimer – I make money with my writing, so could you. If you make more, less or the same amount of money depends on many factors, especially the amount of work you put in! If you make less than I do, perhaps you should work more or simply give it more time. If you make more – congratulations! Well done, pat yourself on the back!

Content Disclaimer – This is my website on which I state my opinions, if yours differs from mine you can either leave or accept the fact that different people have different opinions. But don’t try to sue me because of that, we still have free speech in some parts of the world. Oh yes, all facts have been carefully checked at the time of writing, but things do change over time, so check for yourself before taking my word for it.

Affiliate Disclosure – Some links on this website are in fact affiliate links, meaning that I earn, hopefully, a small commission when you buy a product or service. If you don’t like that simply strip out any code after the TLD (.com is a TLD in case you don’t know the expression) and you are safe. And no, using the links, there are only a few of them anyway, doesn’t cost you anything. And yes, I only recommend things I use since many years and that I am happy with.
