Oh my gosh… legal pages on websites are tedious. Still, if you’re hanging out here at Growing a Green Family, then I’m going to assume that you 100% agree with all the terms and conditions below.
If you don’t agree to all the terms and conditions below, I’ll be sad to see you go, because readers are cool and all, but even without readers I’d still have fun writing. I’m just not interested in dealing with lawsuits, drawn-out email fights, comment wars and other lame shenanigans I don’t have time for.
The bare minimum you should know:
The information at Growing a Green Family is provided “AS IS.” Take it or leave it. I offer zero guarantees that any of the articles on this site contain 100% dead-on correct information. Sometimes I mess up. Research changes. Trends shift. The information I publish today might not be valid or accurate three hours or three years from now.
This site is not meant to take the place of professionally given medical, legal or other advice. Before you act on anything I write about or take any advice I offer, I’d highly suggest you do your own research. This site cannot be held responsible for actions you take in your own life, even on the basis of suggestions I may make, because what works for me and my family may not work for you.
All the views expressed here at Growing a Green Family are mine and mine alone (unless you say something I decide to share with readers – see correspondence policy below). That said, the content on this site is not intended to intentionally harm anyone regardless of their religion, ethnic group, club, organization, company, or so fourth. Just because I don’t intend to harm anyone (or make someone mad) it happens; at least according to some of the emails I’ve received over the years. That’s cool though. You don’t have to agree with my opinions. In fact, I highly suggest you take anything you read online with at least a tiny grain of salt (sometimes many grains).
I never sell or give away reader info. If you leave a comment, email me a question, or subscribe to Growing a Green Family, your name, email or other personal information will remain private.
I’m a stickler for privacy, but I write what I know. If I know you in real life, there’s a good chance I’ve mentioned you (or will at some point mention you), sans personal stuff like names and emails, on one of my sites.
If you comment on a post here, send me an email, write me a letter, or respond to me in some way on a social media platform such as Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram or Twitter, I might share what you say here on this site. Why? Because, again, I write about what happens to me. If you happen to me, I consider sharing what happened fair game.
Sometimes readers ask questions that I feel other readers might be interested in as well, so I share. Often a reader will say something brilliant that’s totally worth sharing with everyone, so I share. Sometimes I get emails or tweets that are unbelievable rude (or insane), so I’ll
vent share. I may share what you say here or on another one of my sites, on my social media pages or in up-and-coming work, such as a newsletter, book or article.
I will not, however, share your personal info. I may share what you say and how you say it, but I do so without names or emails or other personal info involved (unless you give me permission to do so).
If you don’t want me to share what you say, you have the right to read quietly and say nothing.
Giveaways & contests:
If you enter a product giveaway or contest at Growing a Green Family, I usually need to provide the winner’s name, email, home address/and or mailing address and possibly phone number to our prize sponsor. If you’re uncomfortable with this, please don’t enter giveaways or contests.
Unless otherwise noted, I’m the legal copyright holder of all written or graphic material on this site. You may not reprint or republish articles or images without my written consent.
Advertising & affiliate information:
Third-party advertising and affiliate links help me cover the costs of running Growing a Green Family and allow the site to grow.
External links policy:
I went to check out a cool eco-site I like (used to like) the other day and when I clicked the link some insane virus-looking, totally non-legit site popped up. I hate that.
Unfortunately, such is the Internet. I post links here often – to sites I love, to products I think you’ll like and to research and news. However, links change. I’m careful when linking out, and I try to update bad links often, but it’s impossible to keep up with every link change in the world. Basically, I’m not responsible if you click a link I post and you end up somewhere lame. I’m also not responsible for the content of external websites that I link to or any products or services that they may offer.
If you do click through to a bad link here though, please do let me know and I’ll get rid of that sucker as soon as possible.
My right to change it up:
