It appears as though most blogs nowadays includes a serious, legal section, so I suppose I had better try. I must start by saying that it is 100% true that all the writing, thoughts, opinions, musings and general claptrap you will find on this blog, is entirely my responsibility. (With the occasional input and approval of the lovely wife!)
If I’m writing a review about something, I’ll give my opinion and not the opinions of anyone else, again, with the exception of my wife, despite the more than likely possibility of receiving some form of compensation, normally the actual product itself. So whilst on that subject, I’m sometimes compensated to provide opinion on services, products, websites and various other topics. If I come across as an expert on a certain topic, hold that thought very loosely, because I’m not. It is purely my opinions on that particular product or topic.
This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.
If you feel the desire to sign up to receive The Dad Network newsletter or an email with any new posts or leave your email on a comment, rest assured I am not in the business of sharing that information with anyone. This information will be used for internal record keeping, and to allow The Dad Network to send you emails that you might find interesting. This information will never be shared with a third party without your express consent, unless I am required to do so by law.
This site earns revenue using Skimlinks. In the interests of disclosure and ethics, we want to be open about how we make money from our site. Besides display advertising and other paid sponsorships, we also sometimes get paid a commission if you purchase a product or service that we link to in our content. We want to be clear that our reviews are driven entirely by our editorial staff based on what we think. We use Skimlinks to help us automate the process of linking to products, especially as it distances our editorial staff from creating affiliate links themselves.
It is also fair to say, that I’m neither a web designer nor a writer; however I’m certainly a dad! This is something that I enjoy doing in any spare time. In many ways, it’s a personal thing where I am able to write down and keep record of my thoughts, experiences and memories as ‘Rex’ grows and develops. It’s an honour that other people would want to read about it.
Thanks for stopping by.
Like with any forum, we need rules to help keep the place running smoothly and to keep everyone happy. So here are a few things to remember…
All info is the opinion of posters – it’s not our view. We hope to grow a fantastic forum which will be used as a useful resource for many parents. But remember it’s open to all, and often messages are posted that could be misleading or incorrect. One persons experience may not be the best way. Don’t count on information being completely accurate. If you do, it’s at your own risk. Please do your own research before you make a decision to do something, and of course, always seek the advice of professionals.
We can be liable for what you post! I know, sounds harsh, but true. When you post something, not only are you liable for what you say, but we can become liable as the host. It’s not our job to simply trawl through all your posts and delete anything inappropriate. Be responsible for what you post and think carefully before pushing enter!
Posting is a privilege, not a right. This is a privately-owned site. Posting is a privilege, not a right. Any inappropriate posts or any issues that take up a disproportionate amount of resources will be stopped & deleted at our discretion – with or without explanation. Simple. No one pays to use this site; when there are issues, we pay to resolve them.
Please be nice to all Dad Networkers. Remember, the primary goal is to be a resource for parents. If you don’t like someone, their situation, their question or feel they’re intruding on ‘your board’ then please just suck it up, get over it and move on. Life is too short and we all probably have a child needing some sort of assistance urgently!
The rules listed below may be changed or amended at any time. These
guidelines are here to give you a legitimate expectation of how the forum
runs, but they don’t bind us.
