Terms and Conditions

Ok, so this part is weird and seems complicated, but it’s not. This site republishes material from other sources. Some of the material from outside sources is embedded content that includes advertising from the source website. Other content is republished from sites that allow re-use via a Creative Commons license or have granted specific permission to Yonside. So, if you want to re-use any of that stuff, you might need to get permission from the source. Original content on this site is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License. What that means is you can re-use any of our original content if you credit us. Linking back to our site would be a nice thing to do and we’d appreciate it.

Electronic Communications
When you visit this site and send emails to us, you are communicating with us electronically and thus consent to receive communications from us electronically. But, no, we’re not spammers and we don’t hang out with them. We’re not going to sell your email address. We will communicate with you by email or by posting notices on this site. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

Links to Third-Party Sites
Websites we link to are not under our control, so we are not responsible for the contents of any linked site or any link contained in a linked site, or any changes or updates to those sites. We provide such links to you only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by of the sites we link to. You probably knew all that, but we needed to say it anyway.

Unsolicited Email Policy
The presence of email addresses on this site is not an invitation for unsolicited commercial email. The use of spiders, robots, and other technologies to collect email addresses from this site is prohibited. Senders of email are expected to abide by all applicable state and federal laws and agree not to be jerks about it.

Copyright Complaints
We respect the intellectual property of others. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please email us using the form on this page. We’ll take it seriously.

Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitation of Liability
We’re not trying to be jerks about it, but this site is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. We do our best, but Yonside makes no representations or warranties of any kind as to the operation of this site or the information, content, materials, or products included on this site. You expressly agree that your use of this site is at your sole risk (and, we suppose, at the risk of putting your eternal soul in jeopardy). We will not be liable for any damages of any kind arising from the use of this site, including, but not limited to direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, and consequential damages (or eternal damnation).

Certain state laws do not allow limitations on implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain damages. If these laws apply to you, some or all of the above disclaimers, exclusions, or limitations may not apply to you and you might have additional rights.

Governing Law
These terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Michigan (which, in case you flunked geography is in the United States), without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these terms will remain in effect. These terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our service.

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these terms at any time. If a revision is material we will try to provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect, but we can’t promise anything. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion. By continuing to access or use our service after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the site. It’s a big Internet out there, so we’re sure you can find sites that offer terms you can live with. But, honestly, we’re not planning to put anything really weird into our terms. We’re not after your first-born child or your soul. If you want to send us chocolate or beer, that would be great, but it’s not required.
