Terms and Conditions
Just to make sure everything is clear, a few housekeeping issues, if I may...
This page covers a range of topics:
This is the uninteresting small print, so you probably want to stop reading and go and look at the rest of the site unless you have a particular interest in any of the topics covered.
I have separately set out my confidentiality provisions.
I also want to be entirely clear about how you can expect any data in connection with browsing this site to be treated.
Using the Contact Form
In an attempt to block spam and stop other spurious messages which are sent to me through the contact form, I use Mollom, an email filtering service which will analyze your IP address, email address, and the content of the message in order to determine whether the message is likely to be spam.
Any message determined to be spam will be deleted and any message determined not to be spam will be forwarded to me. If the algorithm cannot determine whether the message is spam or not, you will be asked to complete a captcha in order to prove that the message is being sent from a real human being.
At the top of most pages you will find a row of buttons to share the page (through Twitter, Facebook, and so on).
Privacy beyond this Website
If you follow me, friend me, or similar through one of the social networks outside of this website, or interact with me through any public forum, then clearly that interaction and any communications through that channel may be public, and will be subject to the terms of that service.
All material on this site is copyright © to me, Simon Cann unless explicitly stated. Let me explain what you can do with the material (beyond simply reading it).
If you want to share any article from this site with other people, then you will find that each page has the facility to email and share/bookmark/social bookmark/link to (through Twitter, Facebook, Delicious, StumbleUpon, Digg, and similar services). You may link to any page on this site and you can be confident that the page URLs will not be changed.
You may reproduce extracts from any article, provided you credit me and this website (and if you are reproducing the extract electronically, you should include a link back to this website http://writtenbyaghost.com). For the avoidance of doubt, an extract is a (small) portion of an article—you may not reproduce a whole article without permission.
All images on this site are my copyright and may be reproduced, subject to the same acknowledgement requirements. If you want a higher resolution image (for instance, for print publication), then please get in touch.
You may print articles for your own personal use or for educational purposes (provided no income is being generated by the use of the article).
If you are in any doubt about whether you have my permission to use this material, then please assume you don’t and instead, get in touch.
