The following is a legal notice necessary to protect myself from any legal trouble. I do everything myself including research, writing, editing, advice, making images, moderating comments & learning & implementing all of the marketing stuff that helps people find my little site. Since I do it all alone & don’t have a giant multi-million dollar company to come to my rescue in the event of frivolous lawsuits, I have to make sure I am completely protected from legal issues. But, because I also hate overly complex legalese agreements that make understanding the terms impossible while at the same time expecting people to agree to be bound by them, I added in a simplified version of each section so you know what I’m asking you agree to. I appreciate your patience & understanding of this formality.
This disclaimer (“Disclaimer”, “Agreement”) is an agreement between Website Operator (“Website Operator”, “us”, “we” or “our”) and you (“User”, “you” or “your”). This Disclaimer sets forth the general guidelines, terms and conditions of your use of the OneWomansWisdoms.com website and any of its products or services (collectively, “Website” or “Services”).

Any views or opinions are not intended to malign any religion, ethnic group, club, organization, company, or individual.
Plain English Representation
Anything I say on this site are just my thoughts & opinions, nothing more, & I only ever speak for myself unless I say I’m speaking for anyone else. Also I never mean to represent any group negatively.

Inclusion of any part of this Website in another work, whether in printed or electronic or another form or inclusion of any part of the Website in another website by embedding, framing or otherwise without the express permission of Website Operator is prohibited.

Plain English Content and Postings
Please don’t steal from me. I put a great amount of effort into creating this content & by copyright law it belongs to me. I have no problem with you saving any copies of pages or sections by copying them into a document you save or print out for your own personal reference & in fact I encourage that. However, I’d be very grateful if you didn’t use any of my content as your own on another site without asking. As long as it isn’t commercial use & you don’t claim credit, feel free to share.
If you comment on anything here, you are giving me permission to post that comment on the site for others to see. I can use those comments as a part of my site or as testimonials & reviews. If at any point you’d prefer I didn’t post the comment anywhere, let me know & I will do my best to remove it. I try to always be aware of what my readers want & try to honor their wishes whenever possible. Please don’t lie about your identity and/or claim to speak for anyone but yourself, it just isn’t a nice thing to do. Please don’t post any lies or smear anyone in the comments. Also, no violence, threats or inappropriate comments please. Kids visit the site. Don’t violate anyone’s right in any way. Also, no viruses or tech sabotage like that.
Some of the links on the Website may be “affiliate links”. This means if you click on the link and purchase an item, Website Operator will receive an affiliate commission.
Plain English Compensation
Sometimes I might talk about products, services, content or other physical or digital products that I happen to like or favor. Sometimes, when I plan to do this I might reach out to make a deal with the person or company to add an affiliate link so that when someone clicks or buys because of my post about it, I make a profit. I will only do this when I would have written the same post for free & will not mislead my readers in anyway for the purpose of profit. If I don’t honestly believe in the product, I won’t recommend it to you. Ethics, values & principles are only worth anything if we stick to them when it counts.
Legalese Indemnification and Warranties

All information on the Website is provided “as is”, with no guarantee of completeness, accuracy, timeliness or of the results obtained from the use of this information, and without warranty of any kind, express or implied.

Policy was created with WebsitePolicies.
Plain English Indemnification and Warranties
I do my best to make sure everything I post is accurate, but typos happen, things get left out accidentally, numbers get inverted, research can be wrong, etc. If this happens, I’m sorry & it wasn’t my intent, but I’m not legally responsible for any mistakes or outcomes that result from them. It’s just me, I’m only one person & I’m doing my best. Also, I’m not a certified expert in anything. When I give advice I do so from personal experience with the intention of giving my opinion. I never give any advice for the purpose of replacing expert advice on any topic so if you need a doctor, lawyer or banker than you should ask one. I’m just giving my personal thoughts because I feel my perspective is useful & might help, never in the place of professional advice. I can’t be sued for giving advice that doesn’t work out.
As my site, the law, & other things change I may need to change any of these agreements. If I do I will change the date at the bottom of the page & I’ll do my best to make sure you are aware, but if you aren’t for any reason I can’t be sued for that either.
Legalese Acceptance of this disclaimer
You acknowledge that you have read this Disclaimer and agree to all its terms and conditions. By accessing the Website you agree to be bound by this Disclaimer. If you do not agree to abide by the terms of this Disclaimer, you are not authorized to use or access the Website.
Plain English Acceptance of this disclaimer
If you use the site in any way, that counts legally as agreeing to all of this as if you signed a contract. If you don’t want to have to follow any of the rules that are listed here then you shouldn’t use the site. I, of course, hope you do decide to use it though & I want you to know that this is a very standard agreement, & in fact I actually allowed more than most do & took the time to make sure it can be understood. I hope I’ve made it obvious that despite all the scary language, I’m just trying to protect myself from getting sued since I have nothing to give so I don’t feel like that would go well for me. I hope you understand.
(I don’t think this needs translating LOL)
