This is a personal site, which means I have absolute control over the content. You will doubtless have noticed my disclaimer on every page:
My opinions are my own and don’t represent those of anyone else.
Not that anyone would want them :)
In other words, the opinions I express on this site don’t reflect the opinions of an employer or of anyone else; they’re all mine. I reserve the right to change them.
I also reserve the right to change the contents of my site. I tend to make such changes clear in the text of FAQs in particular, and in blog entries. But I do edit blog entries, and my other pages, in an effort to make the text more readable and my argument easier to follow. I frequently update the site as I learn more, or new information is available. I change the “last updated” date on static pages that I’ve changed in a substantive fashion. If I edit a blog page for anything other than grammar, html errors, readability or spelling, I indicate that I’ve edited or updated the entry.
I do care, very much, about writing, and about accuracy. That said, I should warn you that I can’t spell. Really. I’m profoundly dyslexic, as well as dysphonetic, and while I manage to compensate for it
In an effort to protect my site from auto-generated comment spam, I close the comments on blog entries after about fourteen days. If you’d like to post a comment to an older (and now comments-disabled) entry, please email me at medievalist at digitalmedievalist dot com, and I’ll make commenting possible. Naturally, I reserve the right to remove comments at will, especially spam. I also reserver the right to disemvowel, edit, respond, quote and use, with attribution, in articles, books, and presentations.
This statement is intended to provide the necessary data to comply with FTC directives.
There are reviews of books and software on this site. Most of the books and software I review on this site were purchased by me. Occasionally books or software may be provided to me as review copies or as time-limited beta software from publishers. This is particularly true of products reviewed for The Green Man Review. Most review copies of books are ARCs and have no monetary value; indeed, it is generally not possible to sell them since they are identified as ARC and “not for resale.”
Any books or other products that were provided by a publisher, retailer or distributor for review purposes are identified as such in the reviews. Otherwise, the book or product was purchased by me or a family member, or borrowed from a library.
I am not and have not been paid to review any books, media, software or Web sites on this site. I indicate in a post or review if books or software were provided to me by a publisher or developer. I do link to a number of publishers, book stores and developers. I am an affiliate of Amazon and books. I link to books that I think are worthwhile, and am not compensated or paid for those links or for reviews. I am an affiliate with several retailers, notable Amazon, Google, Indiebooks.org, and Powell’s Books.
Amazon requests that I state that “Lisa L. Spangenberg is a participant in the Amazon Europe S.à.r.l. Associates Programme, an affiliate advertising programme designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.co.uk/Javari.co.uk.”
Amazon is not the only online retailer; ou might want to take a look at my suggestions about where to buy Celtic studies books and media if you don’t want to favor Amazon. In addition, I generally list ISBNs so that you can go to your local independent bookstore to order books.
Posting on my site is tacit agreement to these policies.
