This website is for general information purposes only and it is written, managed, and edited only by me (expbeach).
The reading of all information on this website is of your own free will and if you do not accept the terms contained in this disclaimer, you should cease the use of this website immediately. (I reserve the right to change any of these terms at any given time.)
Firstly, all views that are expressed here represent only those made by myself and not those of any other person or entity in their favor. However, whatever opinion I may put across does not intend to harm, slander, or defame any company, individual, or thing. I will not be held liable for libel nor will I be held to compensate you in any way whatsoever if you ever happen to suffer a loss/inconvenience/damage because of what I may display or state in my blog. I will not even be responsible for what people might do with my advice, critique and/or wisdom.
I will definitely try my best to provide up-to-date information, but I can’t make representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability with respect to the website or the information, products, services, or related graphics contained on the website for any purpose. Again: you are reading the information on this website on your own free will and you will be provided with information at your own risk.
Under no circumstances will I be liable for any loss or damage including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss or damage, or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of, or in connection with the use of this website. Any reliance you place on any information gleaned from this blog is strictly at your own risk so please make sure to research and verify the information that you read from my blog because there’s a possibility that some of it will be less accurate as time passes.
INTELLECTUAL & COPYRIGHT POLICY
All photos and text used in this site are intellectual properties of me (expbeach) unless otherwise stated. Additionally: unless otherwise noted, I am also the legal copyright holder of the material on this website and it may not be used, reprinted, (partially) modified, or published without my permission, especially if it’s for commercial use. If you would like to use any of the photos or text found in my website, please get in touch with (email@example.com) first and do state your intent and purpose for such.
OTHER CONTENT MATTERS
I cannot be held responsible for any offense taken due to translation, interpretation or mistakes in grammar and/or punctuation of my website’s content. I will also not be liable if for any reason the website is unavailable at any time or at any period of time as I might often do so without notice and at my own discretion, intended or not.
Meanwhile, comments on this website are the sole responsibility of their writers and they will take full responsibility, liability, and blame for any libel or proceedings that will result from their statement. I do not even guarantee the accuracy, honesty and politeness of their comments. Though of course, I reserve the rights to edit or delete any comments submitted to this website without notice as they may deem to be spam or questionable spam, or that they include profanity, contain language or concepts that are offensive, attack a group or person individually, etc.
Should my website be unintentionally linked to obscene, pornographic, disgusting, hostile or offensive content-filled web pages, I, in no way condone, endorse or take responsibility for such. But indeed, this website contains links that direct to external websites and these are simply mainly provided for your convenience and information. Take note, however, that I am NOT in control of these platforms so I will not be held liable for any material contained within them.
Any personal and/or contact information provided to me will be kept private (especially the emails from readers in blog comments and emails from newsletter subscribers). You will not be spammed in any way and I will absolutely not sell or disclose your information to any other companies.
There are 3rd-party applications, however, like Google Analytics that would collect cookie and usage data. This basically means that Google will simply analyze visitor behavior in an anonymous form in order to track, examine and compile statistical reports on the traffic, activity and visits in this website.

EMBEDDED CONTENT FROM OTHER WEBSITES

HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR DATA
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

ADVERTISERS & SPONSORS DISCLOSURE
This blog is also open to forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, and other forms of compensation and/or projects. But even though this blog is open to advertising, I will never recommend and write about products or brands that I don’t personally use nor believe in. I will always disclose whether I will be receiving any commissions or products for free, or if a trip was sponsored or not.
But I am definitely not responsible for the actions of my advertisers or sponsors. If you purchase a product or service based upon a link from my website, you must take action with that company to resolve any issues and NOT with me. Any product, claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
What’s more is that some of the links on the website are affiliate or referral links. At no additional cost to you, I will earn a small percentage of the sale if you make a purchase through my affiliate link or I will earn a bonus from your registration through my referral link. In fact, the cost for you will sometimes even be cheaper due to my partnership with a certain brand — so it’s a “win-win” situation for the both of us. Rest assured, I only support things that I trust and have personally used. Ultimately, I hope for your understanding that this is a way for me to keep this website running in tiptop shape; so your purchases or registration through any of my affiliate links is much appreciated!
Any letters, e-mails, blog comments, responses on Social Media platforms such as Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Youtube, and Twitter, or questions written directly to me may be used as blog material for my audience unless specifically requested otherwise. (Part of) these letters or emails, questions or any other feedback may be used in newsletters, blog posts, columns or up-and-coming books.
For any further clarifications and questions, it can all be directed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
