Anti-Spam Policy


The following describes the Anti-Spam Policy for our
99mikes.org website.
What Is Spam?
Spam is unsolicited email, also known as junk mail (received via
email), or UCE (Unsolicited Commercial Email). Virtually all of us have
opened the inbox of an email account and found emails from an unknown
sender. By sending email only to those who have requested to receive
it, we at 99mikes.org are following accepted permission-based
email guidelines.
What About The Laws Against Spam?
They exist. However, as with any body of laws, any individual State
spam statutes can and will vary. The spam laws of each State can not
only vary, but also have different definitions of unsolicited
commercial email. Additionally, there may be various federal agencies
keeping track of spam, including the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). At
the Federal level, the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 promulgates some attempt at
a coherent and unified approach to unsolicited commercial email.
Ultimately, it would be difficult to enforce spam law violations on any
consistent or pervasive basis, so your own vigilance is your own best
first line of defense. Beyond that, we protect you by ensuring that you
are 100% in control of whether or not you ever hear from
99mikes.org by email initially or in the future, as detailed
in our “No Tolerance” policy below.
Our No Tolerance Anti-Spam Policy
WE HAVE A NO TOLERANCE SPAM POLICY. We do not email unless someone has
filled out an “opt in” form or “webform” expressing an interest in our
information or products and/or services, or otherwise directly and
proactively requesting it. News of the features and benefits of
Membership is spread through advertising, joint venture marketing, and
word of mouth, so we are only building relationship with folks who wish
to learn more about what we have to offer and willingly subscribe to
our content and contact through email. You are always completely in
control of whether you receive email communication from
99mikes.org, and can terminate at any time.
NOTE – Every auto-generated email contains a mandatory unsubscribe link
that cannot be removed. Therefore, each communication generated by
99mikes.org carries with it the option to “unsubscribe” and
never receive another email communication from 99mikes.org.

pages, the contents of this page can and will change over time.
Accordingly, this page could read differently as of your very next

 DMCA Compliance


The following describes the DMCA Compliance for our
99mikes.org website.
We at 99mikes.org are committed to responding to any alleged
copyright violations, should they occur. Notice of any alleged

Remedy
If any material infringes on the copyright of any offended party, we
may remove the content from 99mikes.org, prevent access to it,
terminate or block access for those responsible for the content, and/or
any other action deemed appropriate. We may also pass along record of
the incident for documentation and/or publication by third parties at
our discretion.
Not Legal Advice/No Attorney-Client Relationship
If you believe your rights have been violated, it can be a serious
matter. This DMCA notice exists solely to effectuate our efforts, as
website owners, to prevent and eliminate infringement on intellectual
property rights. It is no substitute for the assistance of competent
legal counsel. Other remedies and action, such as against an internet
service provider (ISP), may exist. You may wish to seek legal help
immediately.
Notification
For your convenience and to speed resolution, notice of alleged
infringement may be tendered to 99mikes.org via email, using
the email address and/or contact information provided on this website.
We warn that you will be liable for any and all statutory and common
law damages, as well as court costs and attorney fees, if you falsify a
claim that your copyrights have been violated. Six figure awards have
already been granted for bogus complaints, so seeking the help of
competent counsel is advised.
Assuming you still wish to assert copyright violation, you should

content such as a blog or forum posting (email address is preferred).
STEP 5. Include the following statement: “I have a good faith belief
that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly
infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the
law.”
STEP 6. Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of
perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that
I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner
of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”
STEP 7. Digitally sign your affirmation.
Counter-Notification
Note that the party representing the affected website or provider of
content can issue a counter-notification under sections 512(g)(2) and
(3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and so we may again post
or link to the content in that case.
For your convenience, counter notification may be tendered via email,
using the email address and/or contact information provided on this
website. We warn that you will be liable for any and all statutory and
common law damages, as well as court costs and attorney fees, if you
falsify a claim that others’ copyrights have NOT been violated
Assuming you still wish to file a counter-notice, you should provide
the following to speed up the process:
STEP 1. Identify the specific URLs or other unique identifying
information of material that we have removed or disabled access to.
STEP 2. Provide your name, address, telephone number, email address,

such person.
STEP 3. Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of
perjury, that I have a good faith belief that each item of content
identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or

Earnings Disclaimer


The following describes the Earnings Disclaimer for our
99mikes.org website.
We make every effort to ensure that we accurately represent these
products and services and their potential for income. Earning and
Income statements made by 99mikes.org and its customers are
estimates of what we think you can possibly earn. There is no guarantee
that you will make these levels of income and you accept the risk that
the earnings and income statements differ by individual.
As with any business, your results may vary, and will be based on your
individual capacity, business experience, expertise, and level of
desire. There are no guarantees concerning the level of success you may
experience. The testimonials and examples used are exceptional results,
which do not apply to the average purchaser, and are not intended to
represent or guarantee that anyone will achieve the same or similar
results.
Each individual’s success depends on his or her background, dedication,
desire and motivation. There is no assurance that examples of past
earnings can be duplicated in the future. We cannot guarantee your
future results and/or success. There are some unknown risks in business
and on the internet that we cannot foresee which can reduce results.
We are not responsible for your actions. The use of our information,
products and services should be based on your own due diligence and you
agree that 99mikes.org is not liable for any success or
failure of your business that is directly or indirectly related to the
purchase and use of our information, products and services.
This website contains or may contain “forward looking statements”
within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of1933 and
Section 21B of the Securities Exchange Act of1934. Any statements that
express or involve discussions with respect to predictions,
expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, goals,
assumptions or future events or performance are not statements of
historical fact and may be “forward looking statements.”
Forward looking statements are based on expectations, estimates and
projections at the time the statements are made that involve a number
of risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results or events
to differ materially from those presently anticipated. Forward looking
statements in this action may be identified through the use of words
such as “expects”, “will,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” “believes,” or
statements indicating certain actions “may,” “could,” or “might” occur.

FTC Compliance


The following describes the Federal Trade Commission Compliance for our
99mikes.org website.
We make every effort at candor regarding any products or services we
use, recommend, or otherwise make mention of at 99mikes.org.
We strive to clearly differentiate between our own products or services
versus those of third parties, to facilitate inquiries, support, and
customer care. Likewise, just as we (and any other legitimate business)
may profit from the sale of our own products or services, we may also
profit from the sale of others’ products or services (like any
retailer) at 99mikes.org. Additionally, wherever products or
services may give rise to income generation, we endeavor to provide
realistic and factual data, but highlight the fact that the variables
impacting results are so numerous and uncontrollable that no guarantees
are in any way made. It is our goal to embrace the guidelines and
requirements of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for the benefit of
all, and with that in mind provide the following disclosures regarding
compensation and disclaimer regarding earnings & income.
Note that material connections may not be made known at every single
advertisement or affiliate link. Thus, to be safe, you should simply
assume there is a material connection and that we may receive
compensation in money or otherwise for anything you purchase as a
result of visiting this website, and also that we may be paid merely by
you clicking any link.
Amazon.com
One or more parties affiliated or associated with our
99mikes.org website in some way may be an Amazon.com
affiliate. This means that links to products on Amazon.com, as well as
reviews leading to purchases, can result in a commission being earned.
Again, disclosure of this material connection and the potential for
compensation may not be made at every single possible opportunity. To
be safe, simply assume there is a material connection and potential for
compensation at all times. While this does not imply skewed or unduly
biased reviews, full disclosure calls for this warning.
Compensation
You should assume that we may be compensated for purchases of products
or services mentioned on this 99mikes.org website that are not
created, owned, licensed, or otherwise materially controlled by us.
Stated differently, while most people obviously understand that
individuals make a living by way of the profit that remains after the
costs associated with providing their product or service are covered,
at least theoretically there may be someone out there who does not
understand that a third party can “affiliate” someone else’s products
or services and be compensated by the product or service creator/owner
for helping spread the word about their offering. Just compare it to
retailers. They seldom produce anything, but rather make their money
connecting product and service creators with end users.
Admonition
Having said that, you cannot count on anyone looking after your
interests but you. So, you ought to always do your own research into
various offers and opportunities, to the extent that leaves you
comfortable, doing your own due diligence prior to making any purchase
of any product or service from this 99mikes.org website or any
other. Here is a great set of guidelines for you to keep in mind:
First, just always operate from the position that any website
proprietor, including us at 99mikes.org, will have a material
connection to the product or service provider, and may be compensated
as a result of your purchase, unless expressly stated otherwise. Aside
from your purchases, note that even you actions could result in
earnings for this website. For instance, there could be ads displayed
on this 99mikes.org website that we are compensated for
displaying whenever a website visitor clicks on them.
Second, to the extent that we have every interest in positively
furthering our business relationship with you, we certainly desire to
share only those offerings that we believe will benefit you. Just
because we are not the founder or originator of the product or service,
we are not going to withhold knowledge of this offering from you. If
you can get some benefit from it, regardless of whether or not you’ve
taken advantage of our own products and/or services, we want you to do
well. Thus, we make a good faith effort to only present to you items
that we either personally use, have actually tried, or else have faith
in the reputation of the provider or concept. You can count on us
making this determination based on all relevant and applicable
information at the time of the recommendation.
Third, despite the fact that it would be counterproductive to mention
products or services that you’ll find disappointing or inferior, not
only are people different, but it’s also possible for us to have a
lapse in judgment. Thus, to be extra cautious, even if you believe in
our good faith motives, you may as well go ahead and keep in mind that
we could be at least partially influenced by the monetization factor of
listing various products or services on our 99mikes.org
website. Furthermore, in that vein, the reality is that there are
sometimes other connections between parties that are not monetary, such
as personal capital, goodwill, or otherwise, that could be an
underlying undercurrent swaying the decision to promote a particular
offering. Due to this hypothetical possibility, you should again simply
nor rely solely on what we have to say, but rather just form your own
independent opinion just to be safe. Finally, bear in mind that we
might also receive free products or services, gifts, or review copies
of items too.
Testimonials
Testimonials regarding the outcome or performance of using any product
or service are provided to embellish your understanding of the
offering. While great effort is made to ensure that they are factually
honest, we at 99mikes.org are not liable for errors and
omissions. Aside from human error, some information may be provided by
third parties, such as customers or product/service providers. The best
results are not uncommonly correlated with the best efforts,
discipline, diligence, and so on, and thus the results depicted cannot,
in any way, be construed as common, typical, expected, normal, or
associated with the average user’s experience with any given product or
service. Exceptional results may be depicted by our website as
highlights, but you are responsible for understanding that atypical
outcomes may not reflect your experience. Aside from market conditions,
products and services change over time. Older products may lose
effectiveness. Newer products may not have a reliable track record.
Where products or services might pertain to earning money, the same
safeguards about use of testimonials apply. Additionally, note that any
related income figures are highly specific to the individual or entity
that produced those results, and there can be no assurance that you
will be able to leverage the same, or similar, products or services to
achieve comparable results. The results, though real, may be the result
of the conflation of a number of favorable circumstances that would be
difficult to replicate, and so you must proceed with the knowledge that
your outcome can differ from any shared on our website.
Professional Consultation
Many products and services are designed to solve problems. Common
problem areas include legal, financial, and medical. We are in no way
purporting to counsel you on issues related law, finances, or health.
If you require guidance in these arenas, you should consider securing
your own counsel from lawyers, accountants, tax professionals,
investment advisors, or medical professionals before taking any action.
Nothing we may ever communicate at 99mikes.org, in print or
spoken word, will ever be intended to constitute any such counsel, as
we do not claim to be professionals in any of those disciplines. You
assume all risk for actions taken, losses incurred, damages sustained,
or other issues stemming from your use of any product or service in any
way connected with or mentioned on this website. Indeed, such decision
is solely your own, or else determined in conjunction with the
professional guidance of the advisor of your choosing.
Use Of Products & Services
The following are facts you should be advised of if you intend to take
advantage of any products or services:
The price paid for products and services change over time. Even the
prices of staples and basic commodities change, and there are many
factors such as supply and demand, sales and other customer acquisition
incentives, and more. Price, and value, can be quite relative.
Technology, innovations, product improvements, market penetration, and
numerous other factors all weigh in. It is impossible to define the
“right” price for any product and service. Willing buyers and willing
sellers determine price at any given time. You accept the fact that
your purchase reflects your own attribution of value at the time of
purchase, and that the price may increase or decrease in the future.
The outcome you experience is dependent upon many factors. Aptitude and
attitude go a long way towards success with products and services in
virtually any niche, whether fitness or making money. Circumstances,
experience, innate abilities, personality, education, time commitments,
and perseverance are just a few factors. Given the smorgasbord of
interrelated variables, there is no way to reasonably predict your
specific outcome with any degree of reliability or certainty.
Income-Producing Products & Services
Income-producing products & services are likewise subject to
the above cautions. In addition, however, there are additional factors
we like to point out at 99mikes.org. Unlike weight loss
products or self-help materials, income-producing methods are
influenced by the overall health of the economy in which one operates.
In times of liquidity, money flows freely and commerce is easier. In
times of perceived scarcity, fear, recession, depression, or otherwise,
commerce is stymied. Results can be influenced by market sentiment,
just as the stock market indices around the world are swayed heavily on
news.
Income-producing products & services purchased should be viewed
as just that – purchases. Though they can be investments in one’s
business, it is not unreasonable to expect that there may not be an
express return on that investment, per se. Often, business success is
the convergence of a number of factors, methods, strategies, and so on.
It can be hard to peg success to one method or machination. This does
not necessarily undermine value of any given product or service, as it
can have an additive effect. Or, it may have no effect. Since it can be
difficult to tell, you should operate on the assumption that your
outcome could be zero. We make no guarantees and you should only risk
what you can afford to lose on any purchases on or through
99mikes.org.
Earning & Income
In light of all of the factors above, impinging on the very nature of
income-producing products and services, there is no way to guarantee
results of any kind whatsoever. Accordingly, we affirmatively declare
that we make no guarantees as to your earnings & income of any
kind, at any time.
As with any business endeavor or investment, past performance is no
guarantee or predictor of future performance. Any testimonials or other
representations of results are for illustrative purposes only and,
though every effort is made to ensure they’re factually honest, they
are not intended to imply or insinuate what is likely to happen with
you. Your reliance on them as such is not advised.
It should be noted that “earnings & income” is so phrased with
specific intent. While income may typify the earnings most either seek
or are accustomed to, earnings can come in non-monetary forms. These
include some forms that are abstract or intangible, and thus not even
readily converted to currency or a common medium of exchange. Thus,
note that all manner of compensation, including earnings of a
non-income yet nevertheless beneficial form, are covered by these
provisions.
Affiliates & Other Third Parties
It should also be noted that we only have control over, and thus only
accept responsibility for, the content of this 99mikes.org
website authored by us. Any representations made by others should be
considered prima facie unauthorized. You may also read, hear, or
otherwise come into contact with commentary about any of our products
& services or offerings, and should assume those have likewise
not been authorized.
While information, in any form, can arise, at any time, regarding our
products & services, there may be times when this results from
an affiliate relationship. In other words, we may permit our products
& services to be marketed through other individuals,
businesses, websites, and otherwise, just as providers of goods and
services use retailers and other vendors to make available what they
offer.
You should not construe a third-party offer as an endorsement by that
third party of any product or service. You should, more conservatively,
view it as an offer to buy something. Likewise, as alluded to
previously, note that we cannot fully control all marketing practices
by all parties. With the use of “mirror” sites, indirect or
unauthorized affiliates, “tiered” affiliate structures, and so on,
policing the world wide web with any modicum of thoroughness is
unlikely. We make reasonable efforts to ensure our affiliates comply
with our policies and represent our products & services
consistent with our guidelines. However, at 99mikes.org we
cannot always guarantee they will do so. You are always free to report
concerns or abuses via our Contact information.
Customer Care
Last, but not least, please note that our role in briefing you on
products and services other than our own is simply as a “matchmaker.”
We do not provide any support or customer service for those items and
you should always contact the owner or provider of those products or
services to have any and all questions answered to your satisfaction
before purchasing.

Privacy Policy

The following describes the Privacy Policy for 99mikes.org
website.
Your Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we
provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the
choices you can make about the way your information is collected and
used. You agree to agree to these policies by virtue of using our
website in a way that leads to you providing us with personal
information.
State Law & Accompanying Rights
Please understand that you may have additional rights originating from
State laws based on where you live. These State-based rights may
augment, strengthen, or otherwise somehow compliment any privacy rights
you have inherently or under Federal law. Our policy is to comply fully
with the privacy policies of every jurisdiction in which we operate.
Accordingly, you are free to use our Contact information to reach us at
any time to assert any State rights.
Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For
that reason, our website will never collect or maintain information at
our website from those we actually know are under 18, and no part of
our website is structured to attract anyone under 18.
Under our Terms of Service and Conditions of Use, children under 18 are
not allowed to use our website and access our services. It is not our
intention to offer products or services to minors.
Google Analytics
99mikes.org uses Google Analytics to help analyse how users
use the site. The tool uses “cookies,” which are text files placed on
your computer, to collect standard Internet log information and visitor
behaviour information in an anonymous form. The information generated
by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address)
is transmitted to Google. This information is then used to evaluate
visitors’ use of this website and to compile statistical reports on
website activity.
We will never (and will not allow any third party to) use the
statistical analytics tool to track or to collect any Personally
Identifiable Information of visitors to our site. Google will not
associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither
we nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the
identity of a computer user.
You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings
on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be
able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this
website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in
the manner and for the purposes set out above.
Other Collection of Personal Information
When visiting our website, the IP address used to access our website
may be logged along with the dates and times of access. This
information is purely used to analyze trends, administer our website,
track users movement, and gather broad demographic information for
internal use such as statistical assessments and website improvement.
Most importantly, any recorded IP addresses are not linked to
personally identifiable information.
Other information may be collected as well, which is rather typical of
most websites. For instance, the source that referred you to our
website is generally known. Likewise, your duration on our website, and
your destination when you leave our website can also be tracked. Other
common data collected includes the type of operating system the
computer you are using to access our website has. Similarly, the type
of web browser is often noted. Again, this is common data collection,
and helps ultimately produce a better end-user experience.
Cookies are another common internet practice. Cookies are a key means
of improving user experience by allows us to customize your use of our
website. Simple information is transferred to your computer to allow
the content and experience to reflect your actions, preferences, and so
on. You should simply make the assumption our website uses cookies, and
note that you are free to make adjustments in your web browser to
disable these or otherwise receive notification of cookies so you can
take whatever desired action you so choose. Please understand that
refusing cookies may cripple some of our website features and render
some aspects useless to you.
At times, you will be fully aware of information received, as you are
the direct source providing it. For instance, you may comment on a blog
post, reply to an email (whether broadcast message or autoresponder),
provide an email address, complete a survey, requests SMS, or
otherwise. Likewise, purchases necessarily involve collecting certain
information, such as credit card information, Paypal addresses, your
physical address for billing and/or shipping, phone number, and so on.
Refusing to provide some of this information may lead to us being
unable to provide you with the products or services you’ve requested.
A prime example of limited access to our website is where content may
be protected by a username and password. Whether a username and
password is generated by our website, or created by you, these will
almost always be connected with some other information related to or
connected with you. This is true since much content that is protected
on the internet is subscription based, often paid for. Thus, the
username and password must necessarily be tied to your other account
data. Usernames and passwords, by their very nature, should be kept
private.
Handling of Personal Information
Note that any personal information you provide to others apart from us
or our vendors is wholly optional. As an example, you might disclose
something in a blog post comment. That “private” information is now
“public,” and we have no control over that. In like fashion, you
sharing information with any other third party not functioning as a
service provider to us puts that information beyond our control and
becomes subject to the policy that party has in place.
Our primary intention for collecting personal and private information
from you is simply to conduct our business. We can use this internally
to better serve you. Accordingly, we see no reason to share your
personal information to other parties and outside interests unless you
have authorized us to do so.
Of course, there are instances where your information is stored with
third party service providers, such as email service providers, as they
provide services that are industry-leading in quality and security and
are far more beneficial to our end user than attempting such services
“in-house.” However, you are never required to deal with any such third
party directly, they are limited in how they use your information, and
they cannot sell or transfer it to others in any way.
However, of course, your information does comprise part of an overall
whole. This aggregate of information, by contrast, may be used to
understand our overall user base. Further, we may share this
information about our website visitors as a whole, not individually,
with third parties for various purposes, in our sole discretion.
While we are staunch privacy advocates, there are times when even we
may be forced to abandon these ideals. Just as major search engines
face ongoing compulsion to provide data against their will, so too may
the same occur with our website. Illegal activity or other serious acts
or allegations could create legal liability for our website. In those
cases, we reserve the right to share your information, or else may
simply be compelled to do so by law.
On the other hand, there may be times when we would need to share your
private information in order to protect our own interests. For
instance, in cases of suspected or alleged copyright infringement or
other intellectual property violations, it may be necessary to share
personal information.
Google Adsense and the DoubleClick DART Cookie
Google, as a third party advertisement vendor, may use cookies to serve
ads on this website. The use of DART cookies by Google enables them to
serve adverts to visitors that are based on their visits to this
website, including past visits, as well as other websites on the
internet.
To opt out of the DART cookies you may visit the Google ad and content
network privacy policy at the following url
http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html Tracking of users through the
DART cookie mechanisms are subject to Google’s own privacy policies.
Other Third Party ad servers or ad networks may also use cookies to
track users activities on this website to measure advertisement
effectiveness and other reasons that will be provided in their own
privacy policies, our website has no access or control over these
cookies that may be used by third party advertisers. However, you can
opt out of some, though likely not all, of these cookies in one easy
location at http://ww.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp
Links to Third Party Websites
We have included links on this website for your use and reference. We
are not responsible for the privacy policies on these websites. You
should be aware that the privacy policies of these websites may differ
from our own.
Comments Policy
As you know, Web 2.0 is all about the conversation. But without a few
simple ground rules, that conversation can turn into a shouting match
that discourages others from entering into the fray.
So here is 99mikes.org comments policy. By posting on my blog,
you agree to the following:
You may comment without registering. You can log-in via Disqus, OpenID,
Twitter, Facebook—or not at all. It’s up to you. You may post
anonymously. I don’t recommend this, but you may do so if you wish. I
may change this rule if it is abused.
You may post follow-up questions. If you have a question, chances are
you are not alone. Others are likely thinking similarly. Therefore, I
would rather receive your comments on 99mikes.org than via
email. It is a better use of my time to address everyone at once rather
than answer several similar emails.
You may disagree with me. I welcome debate. However, I ask that if you
disagree with me—or anyone else, for that matter—do so in a way that is
respectful. In my opinion, there is way too much shouting in the public
square to tolerate it here.
99mikes.org reserves the right to delete your comments. This
is my blog. I don’t have an obligation to publish your comments. The
First Amendment gives you the right to express your opinions on your
blog not mine.
Specifically, I will delete your comments if you post something that
is, in my sole opinion, (a)snarky; (b) off-topic; (c) libelous,
defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic,
offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violates or encourages
others to violate my sense of decorum and civility or any law,
including intellectual property laws; or (d) “spam,” i.e., an attempt
to advertise, solicit, or otherwise promote goods and services. You
may, however, post a link to your site or your most recent blog post.
You retain ownership of your comments. I do not own them and I
expressly disclaim any and all liability that may result from them. By
commenting on my site, you agree that you retain all ownership rights
in what you post here and that you will relieve me from any and all
liability that may result from those postings.
You grant 99mikes.org a license to post your comments. This
license is worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and royalty-free. You
grant me the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish,
reproduce, and distribute your comments in any format, including but
not limited to a blog, in a book, a video, or presentation.
In short, my goal is to host interesting conversations with caring,
honest, and respectful people. I believe this simple comments policy
will facilitate this.
CHANGE NOTICE: As with any of our administrative and legal notice
pages, the contents of this page can and will change over time.
Accordingly, this page could read differently as of your very next

Social Media Disclaimer


The following describes the Social Media Disclosure for our
99mikes.org website.
Social Media Issue
We live in an interesting time when privacy rights are championed
alongside an unprecedented voluntary willingness of people to share
their most intimate and superfluous life details with the world, even
in places such as our 99mikes.org website. While apparently
benign on the surface, the dangers of unrestrained public disclosure of
sensitive information is beginning to surface.
Key social media players are being sued for unauthorized or abusive
use/misuse of personal information. Failure to protect and warn are
likely going to be focal factors. Lawsuits are filed seeking damages
for statements held to be responsible for people’s death or suicide.
Bloggers presuming to operate under an unfettered freedom of speech or
greater latitude offered to members of the press are losing civil cases
for defamation, slander, libel, and so on.
As social media rapidly advances to allow more technologically
sophisticated and easy dissemination, the simultaneous fallout of
revelation without boundaries is mounting. Thus, a sober approach to
the benefits of social media, while sidestepping the perils of
imprudent disclosure, can facilitate an enjoyable online experience,
without the consequences of excess, in settings such as our own
99mikes.org website.
Presence/Scope of Social Media
You should assume that social media is in use on our
99mikes.org website. A simple click of a button to endorse a
person, product, or service is building a cumulative profile about you,
which you should always assume can be discovered by others. Attempting
to share a website with someone, whether by direct press of a button or
else by email forwarding facilitated on a website, you should assume
that this may not stop with the intended recipient, and that this can
generate information about you that could be seen by a veritable
infinite number of people. Such a domino effect could initiate right
here on our 99mikes.org website.
Something as simple as a blog comment provides the opportunity for
knee-jerk reactions that can become public and may not truly represent
a position (at least in strength or severity) that you might hold after
a period of more reasoned contemplation. You should also note that the
ease of accessing one site through the login credentials of another, or
the use of a global login for access to multiple sites can accumulate a
dossier on you and your online behavior that may reveal more
information to unintended parties than you might realize or want. Any
or all of these features could exist on our 99mikes.org
website at one time or another.
These few examples illustrate some possible ways that social media can
exist, though it is not an exhaustive list and new technologies will
render this list outdated quickly. The objective is to realize the
reach of social media, its widespread presence on websites in various
forms (including this website), and develop a responsible approach to
using it.
Protecting Others
You should recognize the fact that divulgences made in and on social
media platforms on this website and others are rarely constrained just
to you. Disclosures are commonly made about group matters that
necessarily affect and impact other people. Other disclosures are
expressly about third parties, sometimes with little discretion. What
can appear funny in one moment can be tragic in the next. And a subtle
“public” retaliation can have lifetime repercussions.
Ideal use of social media on our website would confine your disclosures
primarily to matters pertaining to you, not others. If in doubt, it’s
best to err on the side of non-disclosure. It’s doubtful the disclosure
is so meaningful that it cannot be offset by the precaution of acting
to protect the best interests of someone who is involuntarily being
exposed by your decision to disclose something on our
99mikes.org website (or another).
Protecting Yourself
You should likewise pause to consider the long-term effects of a
split-second decision to publicly share private information about
yourself on our 99mikes.org website. Opinions, likes,
dislikes, preferences, and otherwise can change. Openly divulging
perspectives that you hold today, may conflict with your developing
views into the futures. Yet, the “new you” will always stand juxtaposed
against the prior declarations you made that are now concretized as
part of your public profile. While the contents of your breakfast may
hold little long-term impact, other data likewise readily shared can
have consequences that could conceivably impact your ability to obtain
certain employment or hinder other life experiences and ambitions.
As with sharing information about other people, extreme caution should
be used before revealing information about yourself. If in doubt, it’s
likely best not to do it. The short term gain, if any, could readily be
outweighed by later consequences. Finally, you should note that we are
not responsible for removing content once shared, and we may not be
able to do so.
Restrictions on Use of Social Media Data
You, as a visitor to our 99mikes.org website, are not
permitted to “mine” social media or other platforms contained herein
for personal information related to others. Even where people have
publicly displayed data, you should not construe that as though you
have the liberty to capture, reproduce, or reuse that information. Any
use of social media or related platforms on our website are for
interactive use only, relevant only during the website visit.
Accuracy of Social Media Data
As any social media platform is built on user-generated content, you
should consider this fact in seeking to determine the authenticity of
anything you read. We are not responsible for verifying any
user-generated content for accuracy. A best practices policy would be
to view all such content as strictly opinion, not fact.
Potential Issues of Liability
You should also be mindful of the fact that your words could trigger
liability for harm caused to others. While you have the right to free
speech, you do not have the right to damage other people. Under basic
principles of tort law, you are always responsible, personally, for
situations where either:
1. you were required to act, but did not (i.e. – some “duty of care”)
2. your were required to refrain from acting, but did not (i.e. –
slander, defamation, etc.)
These “sins of omission and commission” could cause problems for you,
irrespective of whether you assert you are conducting business under
the guise of one or more business entities. Illegal and unethical
conduct, when done in the name of a corporation or LLC, is still
illegal and unethical conduct. As it is rarely part of a business plan
to engage in illegal and unethical conduct, you are doubtfully
operating in any official capacity, but rather, perhaps, leveraging
that capacity to effectuate personal wrongdoing. You should consult a
licensed attorney if you wish legal advice as to the (potential)
ramification of your situation or legal problems stemming from this
website or another.
CHANGE NOTICE: As with any of our administrative and legal notice
pages, the contents of this page can and will change over time.
Accordingly, this page could read differently as of your very next

acknowledge that any reliance on material posted by other users of our
website will be at your own risk.
Our 99mikes.org website does not necessarily screen

website and/or notified by a user of communications which allegedly do

Social Media Warning (Divulgence of Personal & Private
Information)
Social media has provided a platform for internet users to disclose
much personal information about themselves, in a way that seems
innocuous, if not proper and expected. However, more than a few folks
have already lived to regret personal information that was shared
either by them or others. This has long been true of simple email. It
is exponentially true of social websites and applications for social
media on any other website, including this one. You are cautioned
against carelessly disclosing information.
3. Indemnification.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless our
99mikes.org website, its members, officers, directors,
employees, agents, licensors, suppliers and any third party information
providers to our website from and against all losses, expenses, damages
and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from any use
of our website or violation of this Agreement (including negligent or
wrongful conduct) by you or any other person accessing our website.
4. Third Party Rights.
The provisions of paragraphs 2 (Use of the Service), and 3
(Indemnification) are for the benefit of our website and its owners,
officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers, and any
third party information providers to the Service. Each of these
individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce
those provisions directly against you on its/their own behalf.
5.Term; Termination.
We reserve the right to investigate complaints or reported violations
of these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use and to take any action
we deem appropriate, including but not limited to reporting any
suspected unlawful activity to law enforcement officials, regulators,
or other third parties and disclosing any data necessary or appropriate
to such persons or entities relating to your profile, email addresses,
usage history, IP addresses and traffic data.
This Agreement, in whole or in part, may be terminated by
99mikes.org without notice at any time for any reason. The
provisions of paragraphs 1 (Copyright, Licenses and Idea Submissions),
2 (Use of the Service), 3 (Indemnification), 4 (Third Party Rights), 6
(Hiring an Attorney / No Attorney-Client Relationship), and 7
(Miscellaneous) shall survive any termination of this Agreement, in
whole or in part.
6.Hiring an Investment Advisor, Attorney, or Medical or Other
Professional / No Attorney-Client Relationship or Fiduciary Capacity.
Choosing a lawyer, doctor, or investment advisor is a serious matter
and should NOT be based solely on data contained on our website or in
advertisements.
The law is constantly changing and the data may not be complete or
accurate depending on your particular legal issue. Each legal issue
depends on its individual facts and different jurisdictions have
different laws and regulations. This is why you should seriously
consider hiring licensed, professional counsel in your jurisdiction.
Medical issues are complex, and can often stem from both organic and
psychological factors. Never should a website be used as a source of
diagnosing or treating medical problems.
Financial matters are highly individualistic. Risk tolerance is just
one factor to consider before making any investments or financial
decisions. For these, and other, reasons, you should look to the
guidance of a trained professional, not a website.
You may send us email, but in no instance will this communication in
any way be construed as initiating an attorney-client relationship, or
other professional relationship, and so the contact should not include
confidential or sensitive data because your communication will not be
treated as privileged or confidential.
7.Miscellaneous.
Governing Law

performed in the State of YOURSTATE. Accordingly, it shall be governed

Disputes
Any cause of action by you with respect to our 99mikes.org
website must be instituted within one (1) year after the cause of
action arose or be forever waived and barred. All actions shall be
subject to the limitations set forth in these Terms of Service and
Conditions of Use. Any legal claim arising out of or relating to these
Terms of Service and Conditions of Use or our website, excluding
intellectual property right infringement and other claims by us, shall
be settled confidentially through mandatory binding arbitration per the
American Arbitration Association commercial arbitration rules. The
arbitration shall be conducted in YOURSTATE. Each party shall bear one
half of the arbitration fees and costs incurred, and each party shall
bear its own lawyer fees. All claims shall be arbitrated on an
individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with
any claim or controversy of any other party.

practice shall act to modify any provision of this Agreement.

any party at any time without notice to you.
Contra Preferentum
The language in these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use shall be
interpreted as to its fair meaning and not strictly for or against any
party. Any rule of construction to the effect that ambiguities are to
be resolved against the drafting party (i.e. – “contra preferentum”)
shall not apply in interpreting these Terms of Service and Conditions
of Use, as the Agreement shall be construed as having been co-authored
by the parties.
Severability
Should any part of these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use be held
invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed as much as
possible consistent with applicable law and severability shall apply to
the remaining portions, so that they remain in full force and effect.
This Agreement Prevails
To the extent that anything in or associated with our website is in
conflict or inconsistent with these Terms of Service and Conditions of
Use, these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use shall take
precedence.
Waiver
Our failure to enforce any provision of these Terms of Service and
Conditions of Use shall not be deemed a waiver of the provision nor of
the right to enforce the provision.
Our rights under these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use shall
survive any termination of this agreement.
Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved to
99mikes.org.
