Terms of Use

Use of: melindamartinkhan.com / “melindamartinkhan”

This policy is valid from 1 January 2017.

The reading of all information on melindamartinkhan.com is of your own free will. If you do not accept these Terms and Conditions, you should cease use of this website immediately. If you do however want to read some interesting and sometimes a little crazy life moments and important health information, please don’t leave just yet.

I reserve the right to change any of these Terms and Conditions at any given time on this website. As I am quite unpredictable and a bit of a tweaker (there is always room for improvement), please check back here often.

Even though I work very hard to provide you with up-to-date information (through thorough research and contemplating my life amidst the rush and bustle), I make no representations or warranties of any kind (expressed or implied) about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability of any information, products, services or related graphics contained of melindamartinkhan.com for any purpose.

Especially when it comes to information that will reduce your risk of developing a chronic disease, such as dementia. The purpose of this website is to start thinking about our health and potential risk factors. If you think you may be at risk, I strongly recommend that you double check, and get complete advice on prevention activities.  This website will not cover all aspects of risk reduction or relevant health related activities (that might get really boring, or turn into a full time job).  Always remember, I’m not your doctor, just your Blogging friend.  Your health is important, get the right advice for you, from your personal medical doctor.

I aim to provide you with accurate information at the time of publishing, but some information will understandably be less accurate as time passes. Should you find any inaccurate information, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will drop everything, get behind my laptop and correct this world shocking mistake right away… or as soon as I finished my day job (I do need to pay the bills).

Copyright Policy

Unless otherwise noted, I (Melinda Martin-Khan from melindamartinkhan.com) am the legal copyright holder of all (written, multimedia and graphic) material on this website and it may not be used, reprinted, (partially) modified or published without my written consent. A link to melindamartinkhan.com must appear in all copies of any artwork or content, including articles, press releases and greeting cards you make for your workmates. 

Guest bloggers and other contributors to melindamartinkhan.com are responsible for their own submitted material on my website and have to ensure that their work complies with national and relevant foreign, comical-, attraction- and gravitational laws. The opinions expressed by any Third Parties are their own and do not represent the position or believe of melindamartinkhan.com. I also am not responsible for – but will try to keep to a minimum –  any narrow minded, impolite or offensive comments by others on my blog.

Hold Harmless

All the information provided on melindamartinkhan.com is for general information and entertainment purposes only and is the expressed opinion of myself, Melinda Martin-Khan, and not others. This includes (but is not limited to) my membership organisations and/or employers.

I am not providing any medical, legal, lifestyle or professional advice. You are taking all the provided information at your own risk. Please contact your local competent professional if you need further information before making a decision based on the content of this website.

Under no circumstances will I be liable for any loss or damage (including without limitation indirect or consequential loss or damage) or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of or in connection with the use of this website.

I cannot be held responsible for any offence taken due to translation, interpretation or mistakes in grammar and/or punctuation of my website’s content. I’m doing this in my spare time, so sometimes it’s really late at night when I am not at my grammatical best.

Although I try to keep melindamartinkhan.com running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, access to the site may be temporarily or permanently suspended and without notice at my own discretion, due to possible updates or technical issues beyond my control, such as I forgot to pay the power bill.

Privacy Statement

Any personal and/or contact information provided to me will be kept private. You will not be spammed in any way.  I will not sell or disclose your information to any other companies.

I am not responsible for the privacy practices of any of my advertisers or blog commentators.

Reserve Rights

I, Melinda Martin-Khan from melindamartinkhan.com, reserves the right to change the focus of the blog (after I’ve Conquered the Normal, I might need to Conquer the Mountain) to shut it down, sell it, change the terms of use (go to a paid platform) at my own discretion.

I also reserve the rights to edit or delete any comments submitted to melindamartinkhan.com without notice due to: comments deemed to be spam or questionable spam, comments including profanity, comments containing language or concepts that could be deemed offensive, comments that attack a group or person individually. I do however accept uplifting praise, thoughtful input and virtual chocolate (please no spam chocolate).

Advertisers and Sponsors

I am not responsible for the actions of my advertisers or sponsors. If you purchase a product or service based upon a link from my website, you must take action with that company to resolve any issues, not melindamartinkhan.com.

Any information, product, claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product, service or research should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question. Just because putting all my pens in one place reduced my stress, doesn’t mean it will have that impact on your life!

To help the website expand, to cover costs of running the site and for me to be able to go on adventures and pay the electricity bill (part of the dream), some advertising and affiliate links may be run on my website. Affiliate links may earn me a small commission.  I will do my absolute best to only provide you with information about products that I truly believe in. I will never take your trust for granted. All reviews on my website will be presented honestly and I will disclose whether I will be receiving any commissions or products for free.

Letters to the Editor

Any letters, e-mails, blog comments, responses on Social Media platforms such as Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter, or questions written directly to me may be used to share with my blogging audience unless specifically requested otherwise. (Part of) these letters or emails, questions or any other feedback may be used in newsletters, blog posts, columns or up-and-coming books (I’m waiting for a book deal…..publishing companies email me now!).

Thank you so much for visiting my website and don’t forget that life is meant to be about adventures. Find the fun!

Melinda Martin-Khan
