Disclaimer and Disclosure

The words and ideas on this blog are artistic expressions of Charlie Griffin and The Charlie Griffin L.L.C. , not any of the other companies or institutions that anybody who is represented or mentioned on this site is associated with.

I say this not to take credit from others, but to release others of liability.  If you loved something that someone else said, feel free to let them know that they said something that spoke to you.  If you think something on this website is distasteful or inappropriate, I am the one to blame, since this is my artistic project.

I made this blog as a platform to express myself and create things that I wanted to exist.  My primary motive is not, and never has been money, but I do make money from this website, so I need to make a few things clear to be in good legal standing.

Tim Ferriss described it better than I could, so I will be borrowing his words and images below.  Understand the statements below were found on Tim’s blog, but are also true of my blog.

“Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to disclose this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place. This would be tedious for me and even more tedious for readers. But rules is rules. To cover my ass and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every link and product I use, the following all hold true:

ftc_food_2503 ftc_gadgets_2503

ftc_gotbusy_2503 ftc_money_2503 ftc_schwag_2503 ftc_stocks_2503

Please feel free to use the text and images on this page with proper attribution. There is no reason why each blogger should have to reinvent the wheel.
