The Pesky Small Print

Sadly, writing a travel blog isn’t all about travelling to exotic or beautiful foreign climes: a lot of time and love goes in to my writing and photography, so here is the travel blog small print that I need to tell you about. This regulates the privacy and usage for readers, contributors and users.

Copyright Information: I love to take photographs and to write, and one of the best parts about this is when I get to share these things with you guys. However, these are things that I put a little bit of myself into, so if you use them without my permission or without crediting me, I’m likely to be a little upset. If you want to re-print any of the articles from The Roaming Phoenix or use my pictures, then simply send me an email asking for permission. I will ask for credit and a link back to this website as part of the creative commons attribution policy.

Attribution Policy:  All images and content is mine, unless otherwise stated, but if anyone has contributed towards my articles in terms of content or pictures, this will be disclosed on the same page.

Disclosure Policy:  Teaching is something that has negatively affected my mental health; travelling is something that helps it. Therefore I am on the lookout for people or companies to help support my ability to change focus. Ideally, in time I may receive free products or services, sponsorship or advertising revenue. I will, however, always aim to only review and support products that I genuinely value.

Privacy Policy: I love writing and photography, but this whole blogging thing can be a lonely existence without people leaving comments on my posts! Feel free to leave your two-pence-worth, whether it be affirmative or constructive, as your email address will be kept safe and not given to any third parties. This also extends to anyone that signs up for the email notification of new posts.
