First and foremost: this is a personal blog. All views and descriptions are mine alone, and they do not represent any previous/present employer(s) of mine, and organizations I have been affiliated with.

All the information on this website is published in good faith and for general information purpose only, mainly self-entertainment for me. I do not make any warranties about the completeness, reliability and accuracy of this information. Any action you take upon the information you find on this website TommyDonovan.com, is strictly at your own risk. I will not be liable for any losses and/or damages in connection with the use of our website.

From my website, you can visit other websites by following hyperlinks to such external sites. While I strive to provide only quality links to useful and ethical websites, I have no control over the content and nature of these sites. These links to other websites do not imply a recommendation for all the content found on these sites. Site owners and content may change without notice and may occur before we have the opportunity to remove a link which may have gone ‘bad’. If you find a bad link— let me know.

Please be also aware that when you leave my website, other sites may have different privacy policies and terms which are beyond my control. Please be sure to check the Privacy Policies of these sites as well as their “Terms of Service” before engaging in any business or uploading any information.

Consent

By using my website, my Disclaimer is here for any and all to read, and I am under the assumption you’d be in agreement of this page— as otherwise if not— please exit the site. If you require any more information or have any questions about my site’s disclaimer, please feel free to contact me.

Copyright

Unless otherwise noted, I am the legal copyright holder of most material my site. If you wish to reprint or publish any of my own material— feel free to do so as long as you attribute my site name and site address. Images/multimedia not original to my copyright will often be attributed to it’s originator/owner, and there is a dedicated page listing those materials. I am not responsible for the republishing of the content found on this blog on other web sites or media without my permission.

Privacy & Security

I do not share personal information with third-parties, except as would be required in circumstances involving law enforcement.

I utilize two WordPress features that track the visits and traffic on my site. One is the WordPress Stats platform and the other is the renowned WordPress Security plugin, Wordfence. To see what data is collected, and how it is used, you can visit WordPress’s Stat Support Page and also Wordfence’s Documentation for Live Traffic.

In password protected areas, on both front and back end, there are safeguards in place. Attempted unauthorized access attempts are recorded, along with the appropriate user data (as described above) will be used to protect this site. Most of these protected posts/pages are password protected for specific audiences and/or may be posts not fully completed as of yet. If you have emailed to request a password for a story or post that is protected— please allow at least 24 hours for response. If no response is received— please do not make further attempts at password guessing/hacking/cracking, etc. Live Traffic, via Wordfence, is tracked in real time and recorded.

I embed YouTube videos on my site from time to time. Standalone, I use the “privacy-enhanced mode” when retrieving the embed code to insert into my posts and pages. YouTube/Google explains this as the following, “Enabling this option means that YouTube won’t store information about visitors on your web page unless they play the video.” Google further explains in great detail on their privacy page on what they collect and how they use it. Specifically when viewing the source code on any posts and pages where I embed the videos— the YouTube url used for the privacy enhancement option will be youtube-nocookie.com.

If you contact me via the Contact page… you are aware of the specific information you enter in (name, email, website, etc). When I receive your email, your IP address is automatically attached to my message and no other demographic is supplied to me. This is very common on a majority of websites on contact forms.

Adverstising/Sponsorship/Affiliate Disclsoure

I do not use third party paid ads on my site (such as Google Ads, Click Ads, etc.), nor do I plan to. I also do not accept paid advertising & sponsorships either. I previously had an affiliate link at the footer of my site dealing with the premium theme I use for the design of my site. I never made any commissions on it, and decided on my own to just leave the site’s regular link if anyone is interested in this theme; I will not be paid if you decide to purchase your own GeneratePress theme.

Comments

If you so choose to leave a comment on any post or page— there are some guidelines to follow:

  1. No spamming or excessive promotion non-relating to this site or topic at hand is allowed.
  2. Exercise discretion if you so feel the need to use profanity (good taste). However any wordings or remarks that could be deemed offensive (including hate speech, credible threats, or direct attacks on an individual or group) will not be tolerated.
  3. Flaming and trolling will not be tolerated, including “doc dropping” or revelation of personal information.

Certain posts and pages, at my discretion, may have any comments removed for any reason. The commenting feature, at times, may change. Some posts/pages may not have the availability of comments from the outset or can be closed after initially being available, for again, any reason.

 

This site disclaimer is subject to be changed, updated or even deleted at any time.
