Terms of Use

TERMS OF USE

LET’S START

This blog, chezbasilic.com , is maintained by Ana Maria Hruby and her daughter, who at times may also be referred to as “we”, “us”, “chezbasilic.com” or our “Site”.  The person who is viewing or interacting this Site we will refer to as “you”.

This Terms of Use, also referred to as the “Agreement” is our contract with you, and tells you what you can and can’t do and what we can and can’t do with you.

Our Site is a recipe blog. As we make very little money through ads we assume no responsibilities whatsoever, in other words, you are on your own when it comes to cooking using our recipes and anything else on this Site.

AWFUL STUFF YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DO

By now all of us know that the internet is the Wild West, it’s The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. We like Law & Order. So when using our Site we expect the following:

  • don’t spam, or use this site to sell your stuff without our permission;
  • don’t give us viruses or try and hack your way into our Site;
  • don’t post comments on our Site that are useless;
  • don’t be a robot, they are  evil;
  • don’t be a nincompoop.  A nincompoop is someone who discriminates, defrauds, hates, or acts like a moron.  Don’t do any of that.  Don’t post things that you’re not supposed to or don’t have permission for.

If you follow the rules we love you. If you don’t, we haul you to court. Our failure to enforce against one person is not a waiver to enforce our rights at any time for the same or different offenses.

DON’T STEAL OUR STUFF

By stuff, we mean the awesome content, advice, pictures, and photos (altogether known as “Content”).  So our Content is protected by all the wonderful laws you can think of. This includes the US Copyright Law Tit17.  This means don’t use our Content or think of using it other than reading our Site. Don’t use our photos on your website or blog. We’ll eventually find out using Google Reverse Image Search and other search engines. If we find you using our photos without our written permission all hell breaks loose. 

IF IT’S UNAVOIDABLE

If you have a problem you will first tell us about this problem.  If we can’t resolve it then we can still battle it out in the courts. Speaking about courts, the court must be in Florida’s Lee County and the case will be decided based on Florida law. Any law that applies or controls this contract is Florida law. So you’re agreeing to our home-turf in Florida’s Lee County because we have to have one universal location to resolve disputes in. Let’s agree also that the winner of any dispute or lawsuit is entitled to have their attorneys’ fees and costs paid for by the loser.

UNENFORCEABLE STUFF 

Sometimes, people mutually agree to stuff that courts won’t uphold.  That shouldn’t affect the intent of our Agreement. So you agree that if a judge declares a portion of this Agreement of no effect, the rest of the Agreement will stay in effect as much as is still possible without the part that the judge struck down.

THIRD PARTY SHARING

Our site may have links to third party websites that we have no control over, such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter. We have no responsibility for this content and therefore you have to take up any problems you have with those sites with their owners.  Leave us out of it.

DISCLAIMING A LOT OF STUFF

SO WE’RE DISCLAIMING ALL WARRANTIES AND LIABILITY FOR ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING, WHETHER OR NOT WE KNEW.  WHEN YOU COME INTO OUR SITE, YOU PLAY BY OUR RULES AND IF WE END UP BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR SOMETHING WE’RE NOT GOING TO PAY YOU A PENNY MORE THAN WHAT YOU MAY HAVE PAID US IN THE PAST MONTH OR $50 WHATEVER IS SMALLER.  IF YOU’RE FROM ONE OF THOSE JURISDICTIONS THAT SAY YOU CAN’T HAVE PROVISIONS LIKE THIS IN A CONTRACT, OR THAT WE CAN’T LIMIT WHAT WE PAY THEN OUR DAMAGES ARE LIMITED TO THE SMALLEST, TEENIEST, TINIEST, BIT ALLOWED BY LAW.  

INFORMATION FLOW

IF YOU’RE FROM A FOREIGN COUNTRY: WELCOME, GOEDEMORGEN, GUTEN TAG, GRUEZI MITENAND, BOM DIA, BONJOUR, SIKU NJEMA, HOLA,  ……we’re going to be transferring your information from our country to yours, so you’re ok with us transferring this information by virtue of having visited and used our site.  

FINALLY

Follow the law and don’t be a nincompoop. Remember, we like you!
