EASY-TO-READ SUMMARY

When you use this website (CraftYourContent.com), you agree to follow the rules detailed below. Failing to follow these rules will lead to, at minimum, us banning you from the site (i.e., blocking visits from your IP address). So, please follow the laws in your country, which are based on common sense:

  • Don’t steal any property, including ideas. It’s not cool, but we’ll probably leave it for karma to find you. We’re too busy editing, writing, and reading.
  • Don’t copy anything that is not in the public domain.
  • Don’t post evil stuff or try to harm us or the people using this site. Be cool.
  • Don’t blame us if you post a comment and later see something like it in print or any other sort of production.
  • Don’t pretend you’re someone you’re not while using this site.
  • If you make a purchase on this website and want a refund, email us before your 30-day window closes.

Terms of Service:

The following terms and conditions govern all use of the CraftYourContent.com website and all content, services and products available at or through the website (“The Website”). The Website is owned and operated by Marchative, doing business as Craft Your Content (“Craft Your Content”). The Website is offered subject to your acceptance without modification of all of the terms and conditions contained herein and all other operating rules, policies (including, without limitation, Craft Your Content’s Privacy Policy) and procedures that may be published from time to time on this Site by Craft Your Content (collectively, the “Agreement”).

Please read this Agreement before accessing or using the Website. By accessing or using any part of the Website, you agree to become bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access the Website or use any services. If these terms and conditions are considered an offer by Craft Your Content, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms. The Website is best used by individuals who are at least 13 years old.

Your CraftYourContent.com Account. If you create an account on the Website, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and materials, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the account or materials. You must not describe or assign links or content to your account in a misleading or unlawful manner, including in a manner intended to trade on the name or reputation of others. You must immediately notify Craft Your Content of any unauthorized uses of your account or any other breaches of security. Craft Your Content will not be liable for any acts or omissions by You, including those resulting from your negligence and including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.

Responsibility of Contributors. If you respond to a blog post, post material to the Website, post links on the Website, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available by means of the Website (any such material, “Content”), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content. That is the case regardless of whether the Content in question constitutes text, graphics, an audio file, or computer software. By making Content available, you represent and warrant that:

  • the downloading, copying and use of the Content will not infringe the proprietary rights, including but not limited to the copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret rights, of any third party;
  • if your employer has rights to intellectual property you create, you have either (i) received permission from your employer to post or make available the Content, including but not limited to any software, or (ii) secured from your employer a waiver as to all rights in or to the Content;
  • you have fully complied with any third-party licenses relating to the Content, and have done all things necessary to successfully pass through to end users any required terms;
  • the Content does not contain or install any viruses, worms, malware, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content;
  • the Content is not spam, is not machine- or randomly-generated, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);
  • the Content is not pornographic, does not contain threats or incite violence towards individuals or entities, and does not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party;
  • your Content is not getting advertised via unwanted electronic messages such as spam links on newsgroups, email lists, other blogs and web sites, and similar unsolicited promotional methods;
  • your Content is not named in a manner that misleads your readers into thinking that you are another person or company. For example, your Content’s title or author name is not the name of a well-known title other than your work or a person other than yourself or a company other than your own; and
  • you have, in the case of Content that includes computer code, accurately categorized and/or described the type, nature, uses and effects of the materials, whether requested to do so by Craft Your Content or otherwise.

By submitting Content to Craft Your Content for inclusion on our Website(s), you grant Craft Your Content a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting your Content and our Website. If you delete Content, Craft Your Content will use reasonable efforts to remove it from the Website, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, Craft Your Content has the right (though not the obligation) to, in Craft Your Content’s sole discretion:

(i) refuse or remove any content that, in Craft Your Content’s reasonable opinion, violates any Craft Your Content policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or

(ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the Website to any individual or entity for any reason, in Craft Your Content’s sole discretion.

Fees and Payment. By completing the cart and checkout process for any product or number of products, you agree to pay Craft Your Content the fees indicated on our Website at the time of purchase in exchange for the product or service. This may be a one-time, monthly or annual fee; unless otherwise explicitly indicated on the Website, the default fee will be one-time.

  1. Making every reasonable effort to supply Craft Your Content and Elisa Doucette with the date-stamped receipt before the 30-day period has ended
  2. Supplying a written request for a refund, with a copy of the receipt supplied, at either http://www.CraftYourContent.com/request-for-refund or elisa AT craftyourcontent DOT com before the 30-day period has ended

Craft Your Content requires that you supply Craft Your Content with appropriate information to identify, track and locate the information/property in question in a reasonable period of time and with limited effort or expense. Craft Your Content will respond to all such notices, including as required or appropriate by removing the infringing material or disabling all links to the infringing material. In the case of a visitor who may infringe or repeatedly infringes the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of Craft Your Content or others, Craft Your Content may, in its discretion, terminate or deny access to and use of the Website. In the case of such termination, Craft Your Content will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid to Craft Your Content.
