Legal Stuff


Every Blog should have some Legal Stuff even if no one reads or understands what’s being said. The Legal Stuff here applies to Your use of “Say It With A Camera” and if you don’t want to be bound by this Legal Stuff, you should leave now.

I might change the Legal Stuff now and again, so you should check regularly, because as long as you keep using “Say It With A Camera” it means you must have accepted the Legal Stuff existing at the time.

Errors and Omissions
Material that appears on “Say It With A Camera” is for informational and entertainment purposes only.  I make no representations as to accuracy, completeness, currentness, suitability, or validity of any information on this site and will not be liable for any errors, omissions, or delays in this information or any losses, injuries, or damages arising from its display or use. See I said there was Legal Stuff. Did You understand that?

Reviews
If I review your software expect me to be truthful, even if I have a proprietary relationship with you. If I don’t like it I’ll say so but I won’t be malicious in any way. However I do not permit, covenant, proclaim, or expressly imply that any or all reviews or statements contained herein are proclaimed outside of any such possible proprietary relationship I may have. Now that is Legal Stuff.

Comment Policy
Blogging is about feedback and engagement and everybody likes comments, including me. Makes me feel appreciated. But I cannot be held responsible for any and all content submitted to “Say It With A Camera”. Nowadays comments have to be moderated and my Legal Stuff says anything that is deemed inappropriate will be removed.  Still with me? Still reading my Legal Stuff, you are to be commended. You’ll like this one. As a reader you agree not to post intentionally harmful comments, upload a virus, spam, or anything else illegal. I cannot be held responsible if something like that happens to occur however.

Advertising
“Say It With A Camera” may use links and advertisements in posts and embedded within the blog design. None of the advertisements seen on the blog are paid advertisements to Mike Hardisty.

Personal note:  I will only utilize affiliate ads from companies and products I believe in…..but I’m always open to suggestions.

Copyright
Over the years I have flicked between copyrighting my photographs and assigning a Creative Commons License. This has meant confusion for readers as to whether or not they can use one of my photographs.

To clarify the situation I have decided that as of today 02 Jan 2016 all photographs by Mike Hardisty will have a Creative Commons License

Creative Commons Licence
This work by Mike Hardisty is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

Real Legal Stuff means that you can use my photographs for web pages such as blogs, Pinterest, Facebook, etc., even creating derivatives but you must attribute me if you use the photograph. For example if you use one of my photographs in your blog or web page  here is how you could attribute it;

Talacre Lighthouse by Mike Hardisty is licensed CC BY-NC 4.0

Now this is really important Legal Stuff. If you choose to use my photographs and not attribute me then the CC license terminates automatically because its conditions are violated. What this means is you are now using copyright work which is protected by United Kingdom and International Copyright Laws and Treaties without permission. In this case I will invoke copyright of my photographs and seek substantial penalties for infringement.

However, if you fix the violation within 30 days then you as the licensee of my work automatically gets the Creative Commons rights back. That’s real heavy Legal Stuff….

The Creative Commons License that I have assigned to my photographs does not allow use of them for commercial purposes. To inquire about the use of any photograph, please contact me using the email address embedded in the EXIF data of the photograph, or through the Contact Page on this blog.

As far as I possibly can I will respect your Trademark/Copyright and will never knowingly use it on “Say It With A Camera”. If other websites links to/from “Say It With A Camera” and use your material, chase them using your own Legal Stuff.
