This web site’s policy

Here’s some ‘official text’ from me regarding this website. I had assistance from www.disclosurepolicy.org in setting up the text (you may want to do the same for your blog or website).

This blog is a personal blog/website written and edited by me, and a a remnant of the former Silver Cloud Publishing company website. I retired, so FSAddon is now a personal thing. This blog does not accept any form of cash advertising, sponsorship, or paid topic insertions. However, we will and do accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations.

The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post may not always be identified as paid or sponsored content. I am old now, and forget things. Also, being retired leaves very little time for business activities ! 😉

The owner(s) of this blog is not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blog owners. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.

Since I still sell some FS products, FSAddon’s interest are of course prevalent on this particular website. Surprise !?

Cookies!
Yes, I loved Sesame Street and Cooky Monster. Apparently our EU politicians and do-gooders do NOT! So we are now forced to spend extraneous amounts of money to WARN you of cookies. And since I cannot spare the time to tell you what these are, just have a look HERE. Many of my websites do not even use cookies, but just to be safe from the extremely well paid ‘New EU Oversee-ers’ I’ll add these words of warning here AND through an automated cookie warning module – if I can find one (more time lost).

About 99% of all the world’s websites use cookies, and most will NOT tell you (they’re not in the EU so they don’t have to!?). They will also not tell you about the adware, spyware, mallware and other nasty things they do. We small time self employed web owners are forced to waste our time on this and many other silly and expensive things that will NOT HELP anybody really.
Can you tell I have no high esteem of EU law makers? So be it. Freedom of speech, remember?

BUT YOU’VE BEEN WARNED NOW! COOKIES, COOKIES, COOKIES are BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH !

Oh, and by the way, if you ARE curious about all that goes on behind the scenes and on YOUR PC when browsing the world wide web, then you may want to include THIS NIFTY UTILITY called Ghostery. It will SHOW YOU who is peeking on your PC and what ‘Ad Software’ is on any web page you are looking at !

This site does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest. Well, not that I know of in any case.

GDPR !!!!

Yes, a new monster to try and annihilate small time websites from the Univers. We now have to tell you that we are NOT Facebook, Google, Amazon or any of these other data gobblers, who are (mis)using your private data (that you yourself submitted to them, by the way!) and even selling them to Chinese and Nigerian scammers …. hahaha !
(General Data Protection Regulation… whatever. All the big guys now have (or so they claim) and all the small guys (like yours truly) are fucked with yet another ton of timewasting work on their little websites).
Anyway, you now have the right to know what everybody saves about everybody, and request that data to be destroyed.
NOT that you will ever going to find out, mind you, and who will guarantee that any data will really be destroyed?

So, I am NOT guaranteeing you anything. I am just telling you that some data is being recorded when logging in (after registering) to a website, forum or webshop. Most of that data is used to recognize you the next time you log in, and present you with your posts, answers to them, your orders (to guarantee your access in case of loss), and more such totally logical and harmless use.

The ONE THING I can GUARANTEE you personally here, as being a retired person and webmaster for hobby purposes, is that I am NOT selling or in any other way sharing your private data with anyone or any system willingly. I of course cannot guarantee any of my sites safe from Russian, Chinese, or hey, EU hackers…..

So, if you have any doubts, DON’T SIGN UP AND DON’T VISIT my website(s) and shops, and you’ll be safe ……. (and Rome was built in one day).
