Standard Terms and Conditions for Websites
In addition to these User-Generated Websites Terms and Conditions, you agree to be bound by the Author’s standard Terms and Conditions for her Website, as the same may be modified and updated from time to time, with respect to your use of User-Generated Websites.
The Author grants a nonexclusive, limited permission (“Permission”) to display her domain names, brand names and logos to the owner(s) of any web sites (“Owner”) that would like to develop a link between their site and the corresponding website owned by the Author. Links to sites other than those using the Author’s domain names, brand names or logos are not permitted. The materials on Owner’s site shall not imply any association with or relation to the Author or imply in any way that any materials from the Author’s websites are maintained within Owner’s web site.
No changes or modifications to the Author’s domain names, brand names or logos may be made. Use of the Author’s domain names, brand names or logos for purposes other than linking to the Author’s websites is expressly forbidden. The domain names, brand names and logos must not be used or associated with any obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, indecent, profane, defamatory or unlawful site or materials in any way, or in any manner that would adversely affect the name, reputation and goodwill of the Author and her works. The Author retains and reserves all rights in and to the Author’s trade names, trademarks, copyrights and all other intellectual property with respect to its domain names, brand names and logos. The Author reserves the right to cancel this Permission at any time and for any reason. Upon receipt of such notification, use of the domain names, brand names or logos must cease and the link between the web sites must terminate. Use of the Author’s trademarks, trade names, logos, copyrighted material or any other intellectual property of the Author for any purpose not stated herein is expressly forbidden.
All materials linked from the Author’s websites are provided “”AS IS,”” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NONINFRINGEMENT. Please note that some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so some of the foregoing exclusions may not apply to you. Check your local laws for any restrictions or limitations regarding the exclusion of implied warranties.
The Author shall not be responsible for any loss, damage, liability or expense that may accompany or result from your use of links, domain names, brand names or logos, including but not limited to any computer virus; technical, hardware or software failures of any kind; lost or unavailable network connections; or failed, incomplete, garbled or delayed computer transmissions. The granting of this Permission does not indicate nor should it be construed in any way to represent an endorsement by the Author of any materials on a website containing the Author’s domain name, brand name or logo or any other of the Author’s intellectual property.
The Author controls and operates her Website from the United States of America. The Author in no way implies that her domain names, brand names or logos are appropriate or available for use outside of the United States. If you use the Author’s materials from locations outside of the United States, you are responsible for compliance with any applicable laws.
The Author may at any time revise this Linking Policy. You are bound by any such revisions and should therefore periodically visit this page to review the then-current Linking Policy to which you are bound.
The display of the Author’s domain names, brand names and logos on the web site indicates the agreement by the web site Owner to the foregoing terms and conditions.
