Sorry, but we need to talk about some legal stuff for this blog. Google, Bing and other search engines or rather Internet dictators demand it. The author(s) of the
Flexitarian Kitchen (domain: https://flexitariankitchen.com)
is/are referred to as “we”, “us”, “our”, “flexitariankitchen.com” third partyor “Site”. You, the person who is viewing or interacting this Site we will refer to as “you”.
Our Site is a recipe and food blog. As we don’t make any money through ads we assume no responsibilities whatsoever, in other words, you are on your own when it comes to cooking using our recipes and anything else on this Site.
AWFUL STUFF YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DO
By now all of us know that the internet is the Wild West, it’s The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. We like Law & Order. So when using our Site we expect the following:
- don’t spam, or use this site to sell your stuff without our permission;
- don’t give us viruses or try and hack your way into our Site;
- don’t post comments on our Site that are useless;
- don’t be a robot, they are evil;
- don’t discriminate, defraud, hate, or act like a moron. Don’t do any of that – regardless whether you are a Republican, a Democrat or just angry. We all have to live together. Life is short, so make it decent. In other words,
don’tpost things that you’re not supposed to or don’t have permission for.
If you follow the rules we love you. If you don’t, we haul you to court. Our failure to enforce against one person is not a waiver to enforce our rights at any time for the same or different offenses.
DON’T STEAL OUR STUFF
By stuff, we mean the awesome content, advice, pictures, and photos (altogether known as “Content”). So our Content is protected by all the wonderful laws you can think of. This includes the US Copyright Law Title 17. In other words, don’t use our Content or think of using it other than reading our Site. Don’t use our photos on your website or blog. We’ll eventually find out using Google Reverse Image Search and other search engines. If we find you using our photos without our written permission all hell breaks loose. The Site and its Content are important to our food consulting marketing efforts, hence using Content and photos without our written permission can be an expensive proposition.
IF IT’S UNAVOIDABLE
If you have a problem you will first tell us about this problem. If we can’t resolve it then we can still battle it out in the courts. Speaking of courts, the court must be in Florida’s Lee County and the case will be decided based on Florida law. Any law that applies or controls this contract is Florida law. So you’re agreeing to our home-turf in Florida’s Lee County because we have to have one universal location to resolve disputes in. Let’s agree also that the winner of any dispute or lawsuit is entitled to have their attorneys’ fees and costs paid for by the loser.
Sometimes, people mutually agree to stuff that courts won’t uphold. That shouldn’t affect the intent of our Agreement. So you agree that if a judge declares a portion of this Agreement of no effect, the rest of the Agreement will stay in effect as much as is still possible without the part that the judge struck down.
THIRD PARTY SHARING
Our Site may have links to third-party websites that we have no control over, such as YouTube, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, other websites and blogs. We have no responsibility for this content and therefore you have to take up any problems you have with those sites with their owners. Leave us out of it.
DISCLAIMING A LOT OF STUFF
SO WE’RE DISCLAIMING ALL WARRANTIES AND LIABILITY FOR ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING, WHETHER OR NOT WE KNEW. WHEN YOU COME INTO OUR SITE, YOU PLAY BY OUR RULES AND IF WE END UP BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR SOMETHING WE’RE NOT GOING TO PAY YOU A PENNY MORE THAN WHAT YOU MAY HAVE PAID US IN THE PAST MONTH OR $50 WHATEVER IS SMALLER. IF YOU’RE FROM ONE OF THOSE JURISDICTIONS THAT SAY YOU CAN’T HAVE PROVISIONS LIKE THIS IN A CONTRACT, OR THAT WE CAN’T LIMIT WHAT WE PAY THEN OUR DAMAGES ARE LIMITED TO THE SMALLEST, TEENIEST, TINIEST, BIT ALLOWED BY LAW.
IF YOU’RE FROM A FOREIGN COUNTRY: BOM DIA, BUENOS DIAS, BONJOUR, GOEDEMORGEN, SALOMA, GUTEN TAG, GRUEZI MITENAND, SIKU NJEMA, HOLA, ……we’re going to be transferring your information from your country to ours, so you’re ok with us transferring this information by virtue of having visited and used our Site.
Let’s agree, we and you will follow the law.
