Policies and Disclaimers

Posted on October 4, 2014

As a way of making you feel comfortable and of reinforcing the trust in our relationship, I wanted to be sure you know posts on this blog contain affiliate links. If I recommend a product to you, you can know I trust it completely, use it myself or will use it when the need arises.

My affiliate programs include the Amazon Services LLC, Associates Program, which is an affiliate advertising program designed to provide sites like The Farmer’s Lamp a way to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.

As an affiliate of Amazon and others, I receive a small commission from the purchase price on anything bought through one of the links on this site, including purchases you make that I did not link directly to. This NEVER affects the price you pay, nor does it add any hidden costs to you. Never.

I do hope to at least recoup the costs of keeping The Farmer’s Lamp going. It would be nice to make kibble money for the animals as well. Your support helps us to do this.

Privacy Policy – Yours and Mine

Your email address or any other information you share with TFL is protected. It’s never sold or shared with anyone.

Believe it or not, there are people who steal the posts I write to share with you. They copy the content and even the photos and claim them as their own. I take this matter seriously as it takes hours to prepare each post for you. I do not tolerate this practice.

PHOTOS

As with all my posts, the photos on my blog are also copyrighted. You are welcome to share my posts as long as you link them to The Farmer’s Lamp and give TFL full credit. Do not use my photos or articles for any other use without asking me first as I do retain all rights to my photos and content.

This copyright policy includes photos prepared for Pinterest. Do not remove the link to my site when you pin from TFL. You are stealing and violating this clearly stated policy. You will also be in violation of the copyright policies of Pinterest when you do this.

If you are caught stealing from TFL, you will have 24 hours to remove the stolen photo from where you shared it or you will be billed and your information will be forwarded to my attorney. You will be charged for all attorney’s fees and miscellaneous charges involved.

Content

Pretty much like photos. Don’t steal. You are not allowed to copy or otherwise use any of my content, including recipes in part or in whole.

If you use my original content for sharing purposes, it can only be 10% of it and you MUST link that content back to TFL in a prominent way. You are allowed to summarize any post on TFL as long as you place a prominent, this doesn’t mean a tiny out of the way link, link to my home page. Should you want to use my article in some other way, just contact me, we can probably work something out.

Any violation of this policy will be treated seriously. Not only will you be billed at my current freelance writing rates, you will have only 24 hours to respond with payment or removal of the material in question.

I will file a DMCA complaint and forward your information to my attorney if you do not respond appropriately. As with photo stealing, you will be billed for all fees and miscellaneous charges incurred.

Medical Disclaimer

I am not a medical doctor or a veterinarian. Each of us is responsible for our own health and for that of our animals. Please do your own research before using any solution, products, plants, herbs, treatments, and essential oils I or anyone else recommends. If in question, please contact your doctor or veterinarian.

Thanks again for supporting TFL and for being a part of our growing Community. 

Safe and Happy Journey,

Rhonda
