Because of the “I’m going to sue” mentality prevalent nowadays, my blog has to have a disclaimer page. So, below are all the different disclaimers for all the situations I think I could get into trouble for.
Content: I am responsible for everything written on this blog. Well, me and the books I read and other resources I use, but they didn’t make me write anything. If I ever have an employer they are not responsible. Any organizations I belong to, my friends, family or anyone I have ever met in my entire life are not responsible either.
Content 2: I write about situations involving people I know and family members. I do not name them for privacy reasons. Not everyone wants to be a reality star. My own children don’t count as they learned a long time ago that I don’t respect their privacy.
Healthcare: I am not, nor am I claiming to be a doctor/physician, nurse, physician’s assistant, advance practice nurse, or any other medical professional (“Medical Provider”), psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist, counselor, or social worker (“Mental Health Provider”), registered dietitian or licensed nutritionist, or member of the clergy. I am not providing health care, medical or nutritional therapy services, or attempting to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any physical, mental or emotional issue, disease or condition. The information provided in or through my Website pertaining to your health or any other aspect of your life is not intended to be a substitute for the professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment provided by your own Medical Provider or Mental Health Provider. You agree and acknowledge that I am not providing medical advice, mental health advice, or religious advice in any way. Always seek the advice of your own Medical Provider and/or Mental Health Provider regarding any questions or concerns you have about your specific health or any medications, herbs or supplements you are currently taking and before implementing any recommendations or suggestions from my Website. Do not disregard medical advice or delay seeking medical advice because of information you have read on this Website. Do not start or stop taking any medications without speaking to your own Medical Provider or Mental Health Provider. If you have or suspect that you have a medical or mental health problem, contact your own Medical Provider or Mental Health Provider promptly. The information contained on this Website has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
Healthcare Part 2: The information, which includes but is not limited to, text, graphics, images and other material contained on this website are for informational purposes only. It is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health care provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition or treatment and before undertaking a new health care regimen, and never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on this website. Basically, use your brain.
My Opinions: This hardly ever happens, but I may change my mind about something I write. You know what they say ‘if you can’t change your mind are you sure you have one”?
Endorsements: As I have said before, the products I link to are products that I use, someone I know has used or comes highly recommended to me. However, just because I use them doesn’t mean you have to. A certain product I use may work fine for me, but if that same product makes you break out in hives, I am not responsible for that. I am also not responsible for any changes that a manufacturer may make to their products, any side effects they may cause or their business practices (especially if I don’t know about them).
Comments: I love hearing from people and having them share their own stories. I am however, very sensitive, some may say overly sensitive, so please try not to hurt my feelings. Also, I would like to make this blog a pleasant reading experience and not a stress inducing one. So, if your comments are causing trouble, are profane, rude or spam I will delete them.
Copyright: If you want to mention my blog, or link to it please feel free. If you want to use a post, that’s fine too, as long as you mention where you got it from.
Accuracy: Everything I write about is as accurate as can be at the time of writing it. New research comes out which proves older research wrong, a product is found to have more or less benefits, etc; All I can do is try to keep up.
External Sites: I am not responsible for questionable sites that link back to me. I do not ask them to and I have no control over it. If they offend you please take it up with them.
Putting My Foot In It: I would never, ever knowingly offend or insult someone. Ask anyone, they will tell you if anything, I’m usually too nice. If a word I use is considered insulting in your country, culture or household please know that it was not my intention to offend. I understand cultural differences, but I can’t be expected to know everything about all of them. Therefore, I am not responsible for unintentionally offending someone.
