I created this space to share what I know so you can make it happen online. I like to keep things friendly around here, sound good? Here’s what you need to know about visiting this site and working with me.
I’m happy for you to share my work, no permission needed. I simply ask that you follow these guidelines:
- Please keep excerpts short, around 100-200 words.
- You may share only one graphic from a post.
- Please mention my name (Lisa Butler or Elembee) and link back to my website Elembee.com.
Your grade school teacher taught you that copying is bad, and that goes for this site, too. I work very hard on my brand, site design, and written content. Please don’t take my work and pass it off as your own.
Affiliate links and sponsorship
When I first started blogging, people shared things simply because they liked them. Now that anyone can create an affiliate program with the click of a button, it’s difficult to tell who genuinely supports the products they promote and who is simply in it to make a buck. That’s why it’s my policy to only join affiliate and referral programs for products and services I personally use. I am not currently joining new affiliate programs and cannot respond to requests to do so.
Affiliate and referral links will always be marked as such. An affiliate link means that I receive monetary compensation for your purchase. A referral link means that I receive an account credit or discount for your account registration or purchase.
I do not display ads on my site. I am also not accepting sponsored posts at this time.
Let’s go with the golden rule on this one: Treat others the way you want to be treated. Keep comments friendly, make your criticism constructive, and don’t be overly self-promotional. If your comment does not add to the community, I may remove it at any time for any reason.
When you purchase a digital product from me, once it flies through the Internet and into your inbox, it’s yours forever, no take backs. I do not offer refunds on digital products. Please shop mindfully. If you’re unsure if my products are right for you, I invite you to check out my blog posts and emails, both of which are free. If you like those, chances are good you’ll love my products as well.
Thank you for trusting me with your online security. I only collect the personal information you voluntarily provide through comments, form submissions, and shop purchases. Your personal information will never be sold, and your information will only be shared with trusted third parties in order to give you the best service (for example, if you opt-in to my email list, your email address will go to my Campaign Monitor account so I can deliver your emails). These trusted third parties agree to keep this information confidential. Your personal information will never be shared with unrelated third parties.
The “I’m human” policy
We’re all human, and so mistakes happen. I make no guarantees that the information presented on this site or in my products will always be up to date and error-free. My work comes from my personal experience, so your results may vary.
A few legal things
With the libelous state we live in, unfortunately a few legal things must be addressed. By visiting this site, you agree that under no circumstances will I be liable for direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special, punitive, exemplary, or any other damages arising out of your use of this site or my products and services. My liability is limited to the fullest possible extent permitted by law. In no event shall my cumulative liability to you exceed the total purchase price of the product or service you have purchased from me, and if no purchase has been made by you my cumulative liability to you will not exceed $100.
You shall indemnify and hold me harmless from and against any and all losses, damages, settlements, liabilities, costs, charges, assessments, and expenses, as well as third party claims and causes of action, including, without limitation, attorney’s fees, arising out of any breach by you of any of these Terms and Conditions, or any use by you of the Site or Service.
This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with, and governed by, the laws of the State of Oklahoma as applied to contracts that are executed and performed entirely in Oklahoma. The exclusive venue for any arbitration or court proceeding based on or arising out of this Agreement shall be Tulsa County, Oklahoma. The parties agree to attempt to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement by mediation, which shall be conducted under the then current mediation procedures of The CPR Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolutions or any other procedure upon which the parties may agree. The parties further agree that their respective good faith participation in mediation is a condition precedent to pursuing any other available legal or equitable remedy, including litigation, arbitration, or other dispute resolution procedures.
If any legal action or any arbitration or other proceeding is brought for the enforcement of this Agreement, or because of an alleged dispute, breach, default, or misrepresentation in connection with any of the provisions of this Agreement, the successful or prevailing party or parties shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and other costs incurred in that action or proceeding, in addition to any other relief to which it or they may be entitled.
If any term, provision, covenant, or condition of this Agreement is held by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, void, or unenforceable, the rest of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and shall in no way be affected, impaired, or invalidated.
