Copyright, Privacy Policy

1. Copyright: my Heritage Happens is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License and is owned and administered by Cheryl Palmer.

2. Content: I am responsible for the content of this site, not including visitor comments or the content of individual contributors. Other than visitor comments and specifically stated guest contributions, my HeritageHappens reflects the personal views and opinions of Cheryl  Palmer.

3. Credit: I make every effort to give proper credit to any sources of content or information in this blog. If you feel you or another source lacks credit, please contact my Heritage Happens. No one likes a plagiarist.

4. Accuracy and Validity: Believe it or not, people make mistakes from time to time and I try to make facts and information as accurate as possible. In addition, my Heritage Happens 
is a work in progress. The world is an ever-changing place, which means that content can become outdated quickly. While I hope to avoid having outdated material on this site, I can’t guarantee that everything is timely, so don’t rely on the timeliness or accuracy of the information at my Heritage Happens.

5. Images:
 Any image which is not otherwise attributed to another source, is presumed to be owned by Cheryl Palmer. If you wish to use the image, please ask permission. And ask nicely.

6. Comments:
 I am not responsible for any comments made by contributors in the Comments section. However I will exercise my right to moderate and edit comments which are deemed to be offensive, childish or just plain dumb as a box of hair.

7. Liability:
 As a reader, you will not hold me liable for libel (say that three times fast) or defamation in the content of my Heritage Happens. In addition, there is no intention to do harm by hosting content at my HeritageHappens. The content at my Heritage Happens is not to be taken as fact nor absolute. If people use the information and somehow are injured, I am not to be held responsible. The sites that my Heritage Happens links to via hyperlinks are not under my control. Those sites are responsible for the content of those sites. The sun, the moon and the rotation of the Earth are not under my control either. I'm working on it, but don’t hold your breath, and don’t try to make me responsible for other sites, bad weather, global warming or any malady that befalls you.

So there it is. I've done the disclaimer thing. Aren’t you glad we got that out of the way? Now back to the business of blogging about genealogy and family history.
